Control devices

GENERAL INFORMATION

 
1 – tachometer,
2 – index of temperature of cooling liquid,
3 – index of a reserve of fuel,
4 – speedometer,
5 – the electronic clock with digital indication or the display of the route computer,
6 – field of indication of a position of the selector,
7 – the counter of a way about service indicator

The arrangement of control devices depends on concrete model of the car and type of the engine.

1 – Tachometer


The arrow of a tachometer should not enter a red zone of a scale at all.

Earlier switching to higher transfer allows to save fuel and reduces noise of the engine and transmission!

It is necessary to pass to lower transfer as it is possible later, shortly before approach of that moment when breakthroughs in operation of the engine appear.

In the period of a running in it is necessary to avoid operation of the engine with the big frequency of rotation of a bent shaft.

2 – Temperature of cooling liquid

The index works at the included ignition.

At inclusion of ignition for several seconds blinks when checking working capacity a lamp of the precautionary alarm system (c).

and – the Zone of low temperature

To avoid the high frequency of rotation of the engine and not to give to the engine of big loading!

b – Zone of normal working temperature

At the normal movement of the car of the shooter has to be in an average zone of a scale.

At big load of the engine and high temperature of external air, perhaps, from time to time entry of an arrow into the top zone of a scale.

It should not cause alarm until the lamp of the precautionary alarm system begins to blink (c).

with – the Lamp of the precautionary alarm system

If during the movement the lamp of the precautionary alarm system begins to blink, it is necessary to look first of all what temperature is shown by the index of temperature of cooling liquid.

If the arrow is in a zone of normal working temperature, follows at the next opportunity to add cooling liquid to the cooling system.

If the arrow is in the right zone of a scale, then it means that temperature of cooling liquid is too high. It is necessary to stop the car, to switch off the engine and to establish the reason of temperature increase of cooling liquid.

3 – Index of a reserve of fuel

The index works at the included ignition.

Capacity of the fuel tank of the car makes about 62 liters.

If the index reached a red zone of a reserve reserve of fuel and at the same time the precautionary lamp of d burns, it means that there were about 7 more liters of fuel.

4 – Speedometer

5 – The electronic clock with digital indication

For installation of the current time it is necessary to turn the button. This button is located on the right below about a tachometer.

Counterclockwise against the stop establish by turn of the button hours. At single short-term turn of the button there is a shift for one hour. At turn of the button and its deduction in this situation there is a continuous shift of hours.

Clockwise against the stop establish by turn of the button minutes. At single short-term turn of the button there is a shift for one minute. At turn of the button and its deduction in this situation there is a continuous shift of minutes.

By means of this button it is possible to establish hours with a second accuracy:

 – to turn the button to the right until hours do not show time for one minute smaller, than control hours;
 – instantly to turn the button to the right when the second hand of control hours with the exact course reaches about full minute.

5 – The analog watch with arrow indication


Hours with arrow indication are located in the lower part of a tachometer.

By a pulling of the adjusting button installation of the current time is made. The button is on the right below about a tachometer.

At a short-term pulling of the button there is a gradual movement of an arrow on minutes.

If the button is extended and keeps in this situation, at first shooters move slowly, and then the speed of their movement increases.

5 – Display of the route computer

The display of the route computer (the multipurpose index of MFA) along with the indication of the current time gives a lot more additional information:

 – temperature of external air;
 – instant fuel consumption;
 – average fuel consumption;
 – the passable distance;
 – average speed of the movement;
 – the time spent in way.

The pictogram of the parameter shown at present appears except for the current time, at the upper bound of a display space.
Serial removal of additional information on the display is carried out at the included ignition by short-term pressing the balanced key B located on the handle of inclusion of screen wipers.

If to press the top side of a key of the indication of various sizes will be replaced one behind another.

If to press the lower side of a key of the indication of various sizes will be replaced one behind another upside-down.

Stores

The route computer is supplied with two automatic stores:

The store for storage of information on separate trips (MFA 1) accumulates in itself from the moment of inclusion of ignition until switching off its following data on a trip: time of the movement, the passable distance and amount of the spent fuel.

On the basis of these data the average speed of the movement, instant and average specific fuel consumption pay off.

If for two hours from the moment of switching off of ignition the movement of the car was resumed, new data are added to former and considered in calculations of average values. At a break in the movement of the car lasting more than two watch all data in the store are automatically erased.

The store for storage of information on a total run (MFA 2) of the car accumulates in itself all data on any quantity of trips up to achievement of total indicators of size of 100 watch of the movement of the car, 10000 km of a run and 1000 liters of the spent fuel. The saved-up data serve for calculation of the average sizes of specific fuel consumption and speed of the movement received following the results of all trips.

When the limit of one of the called sizes is exceeded, data in the store on a total run are erased, and counting is started over again. This store unlike the store on separate trips does not erase data after two hours of a break in the movement of the car.

For request of data it is necessary to address the corresponding store by means of pressing a key A on the understeering switch of a stekloochista of tel.

In the field of indications of hours with digital indication the corresponding indicator of the chosen store appears:

MFA 1 – (the store for storage of information on separate trips),

MFA 2 – (the store for storage of information on a total run).

From stores it is possible to cause the following indicators:

 – average specific fuel consumption;
 – the passable distance;
 – average speed of the movement;
 – time of the movement.

Deleting of data in stores

If to hold pressed more than two seconds a key A, data in the chosen store are erased.

At a detachment of the rechargeable battery, the data which are contained in both stores are erased.

Indications

At inclusion of ignition on the display there are index inscriptions "MFA 1" or "MFA 2" depending on what store was chosen before.

Without pictogram – the current time.

The indication of the current time also vanishes at switching off of ignition.

Installation of the current time is carried out by means of turn of the adjusting button about a tachometer on a combination a guard of devices.

Temperature of external air

°C

Range of indications is from -40 °C to +58 °C. At the motionless car or at the movement with very small speed the shown value of temperature of external air can exceed several true value because of influence of thermal radiation of the engine.

On the cars equipped with the climatic Klimatronik installation temperature of external air is shown on the display of this installation therefore it is possible not to request the multipurpose index about the size of external temperature.

After switching off of ignition there is the last indication of temperature of external air in the store about 3 more hours. In case on the expiration of this time ignition is included or before the expiration of this time the car will move for 3 hours with a speed about 20 km/h, on the display the updated size of temperature of external air will be highlighted.


Prevention

When you in size of temperature of external air do the conclusion about a possibility of frosting of the road, keep in mind, as at a temperature above zero degrees there can be an ice on the road.


Instant specific fuel consumption

1/100 km

Fuel consumption at the moment in liters on 100 km of a run is shown. Calculation of instant fuel consumption is made through 30 meters of a run. On the motionless car the last indication of instant fuel consumption remains.

If after start of the engine the indicator of instant fuel consumption that the first 30–40 meters of the movement is chosen to be shown value of average fuel consumption.

By means of indications of instant fuel consumption it is possible to correct the style of driving according to desirable fuel consumption.

Average specific fuel consumption
 

Average value of specific fuel consumption, but not the size of fuel consumption is highlighted at present.

This indicator begins to be highlighted right after a covering of thirty-meter distance since that moment when data in the corresponding store were erased. Before instead of figures on the display strokes. During the movement highlighting a my indicator each five seconds it is updated.

At the chosen store for storage of information on separate trips (MFA 1) on the display average specific fuel consumption for this trip is shown.

At the store for storage of information on a total run (MFA 2) on the display average specific fuel consumption on all last trips is shown.

The amount of the spent fuel is not shown.

The passable distance

km

At the chosen store MFA 1 on the display the run after inclusion of ignition or cleaning of the store is shown.

At the chosen store MFA 2 on the display the run on all separate trips is shown.

The maximum value which can be shown makes 9999 km. If the run exceeds this value, counting starts from scratch

Average speed of the movement

km/h

Everything that is stated in the Average Fuel Consumption point, is fair also for the Average Speed of the Movement point.

Time of the movement

 

Everything that is stated in The Passable Distance point, is fair also for an indicator "Time of the movement".

The indication, greatest possible in size, makes 99 hours and 59 minutes. When this size is exceeded again, counting starts from scratch.

6 – Field of indication of a position of the selector of the automatic transmission

Here the position in which there is a selector of the automatic transmission is shown.

7 – The counter of the daily run passed the way/counter

The top counter shows the general run of the car, lower – a run since a certain moment (the counter of a daily run).

The last figure of indications of the lower counter means hundred-meter pieces.

Zeroing of the lower counter is made by pressing of the button under a speedometer.

7 – Service indicator

When there comes the term of carrying out the next servicing on the lower counter (the counter of a daily run) of a speedometer one of below-mentioned designation of the required category of maintenance:

 – change of service OEL or service Oil oil;
 – inspection service of service INSP.

Approximately in a minute after start of the engine the indication of designation of necessary maintenance disappears. You can also include the indication of a daily run by pressing and keeping in the pressed situation more than 0,5 seconds of the adjusting button of the daily counter.

The service enterprise Volkswagen which carries out maintenance after implementation of works establishes service indicator in a starting position.

If service was carried out not in the service enterprise Volkswagen, service the indicator should be established in a starting position in such order:

 – at the switched-off ignition to press and hold in the pressed situation the button of zeroing under a speedometer;
 – to include ignition and to release the button of zeroing only when on the display strokes – one of the image of a necessary type of servicing appear;
 – to turn the minute button of installation of hours with digital indication to the right (at hours with arrow indication to extend the button). On the display there will be a following "service –";
 – to switch off ignition. Only now initial installation is made for indication of need of servicing.

Anyway it is necessary to establish only a necessary type of servicing. Otherwise time of necessary service will be specified incorrectly. As pressing of the adjusting button it is possible to choose a separate type of service.

It is not necessary to carry out zeroing to the period between two maintenance – the device will give incorrect evidences.

At the switched-off rechargeable battery of the indication of a run after servicing remain.

If after repair the speedometer is replaced, it is necessary to program service indicator anew. This operation has to be carried out in the service enterprise Volkswagen. If service the indicator is newly not programmed, it is necessary to carry out works on maintenance of the car on "The service book", but not on service indicator.
