Operation receptions

Lock of ignition/blocking of a wheel

The lock of ignition has four basic provisions: S, And, M and D.

At key turn in situation S blocking of a steering column is carried out. To unblock a column, twist slightly a wheel, at the same time without effort turning a key. This situation - the only thing at which the key can be taken from the lock.
Key turn in situation A provides possibility of use of accessories on the parked car (a radio receiver, window regulators, adjustment of seats and so forth). on an instrument guard the control lamp of a charge of the accumulator (5) (see an illustration the Scheme of an arrangement and designation of control lamps of a combination of devices ) lights up.

Ignition joins key turn in M.Pri etom's position on an instrument guard the following control lamps should light up: a charge, ABS, level and pressure of oil, the parking brake, temperature and level of cooling liquid, self-diagnostics of the engine, pressure and level of hydraulic liquid, lobbies and lateral safety cushions, preheat (diesel models), an electronic key and STOP.

Control lamps which should light up at ignition inclusion

As soon as the control lamp “an electronic key” will go out, it is possible to start engine start.

Refusal of control lamps of inclusion at key turn in situation M testifies to presence of malfunctions at the relevant systems.

Key turn in situation D carries out engine start by a starter. As soon as the engine will be started, the key should be released, having allowed it to return back to the situation M answering to a condition of the working engine.

At all do not turn a key in situation D at the working engine!


At all do not take a key from the ignition lock to a full stop of the car. In order to avoid control loss over management and braking, move always with working engine.

Having parked the car and having taken out a key from the ignition lock, make sure of reliability of blocking of a steering column, for what slightly повращайте a steering wheel.

Start of motion

Make sure that the lever of switching of transfers/selector is in neutral situation.

Petrol engine

Engine start

Start of the engine should be made at the released pedal of gas. Continue to turn the engine a starter until it will not be started, however, no more than 10 seconds for attempt.

At air temperature below 0°С, for the purpose of simplification of start of the engine, squeeze out a coupling pedal, then slowly release it.

Engine restart

The engine flood superfluous amount of fuel leads to difficulties at its start. In such situation squeeze out against the stop a pedal of gas and hold her in this situation before engine start. Turn a starter no more than 10 seconds in a row. Right after implementation of start release the ignition key.

Still start does not manage to be carried out after several attempts, address for consultation to specialists of car-care center.

If start of the engine was not made from the first before repeating attempt, wait about 10 seconds, holding a pedal of an accelerator of the wrung out.

Diesel engine

Engine start

Turn a key in situation M (ignition, preheat), wait, while the control lamp of preheat will go out, then start to turn the engine a starter before start implementation.

At air temperature below 0°С, for the purpose of simplification of start of the engine, squeeze out a coupling pedal, then slowly release it.

Do not squeeze out during start a gas pedal.

Before beginning movement after implementation of start of the engine, wait, while the control lamp of pressure and level of hydraulic liquid will go out.

Equipped with system a model turbo-supercharging

Do not suppress the engine, previously let's work as it some time on single turns: it is necessary to allow to fall to acceptable value to turbokompressor turns.

Squeezing of a pedal of gas at the moment of switching off of ignition is fraught with serious damages of a turbokompressor!

At all do not leave the car with working engine in badly ventilated room!

Gear shifting lever

Models with RKPP

The lever of gear shifting is established on the central console of the car.

The scheme of switching is put on an end face of the handle of the lever. Switch transfers smoothly, trying to avoid a gnash and vibrations.

At all do not include a reverse gear to a full stop of the car!

Models with AT

The AT selector lever as well as the gear shifting lever on models from RKPP, is established on the central console of the car. The design of automatic transmission provided the following possible high-speed modes:
R
- the Parking;
R-
Reverse (reverse gear);
N-
Neutral situation;
D-
Movement in a full range of forward transfers;
3-
Movement in a range limited to the three first forward transfers;
2-
Movement in a range limited to the two first forward transfers;
1-
Movement in a range of the first forward trans
