English term or phrase: Ignition switched
B1428 Ignition Switched Power Run/Crank Relay Circuit.
Bonjour,
Quelqu'un pourrait-il m'expliquer le sens de *ignition switched* ici ? Les traductions (à allumage commuté, à commutateur d'allumage) proposées par quelques googleoccurrences me laissent un peu sur ma soif.
Merci de vos éclairages !

Explanation:
'ignition switched' means that the 'Power Run/Crank Relay Circuit' are only energised if the ignition switch is turned; if (as usual) it's a multi-position switch, such as 'off-aux/radio-ignition-start', then it will have to be turned at least to the 'ignition' position (and maybe even to 'start', but the context is insufficient to be sure of that.
