Switches and switches

GENERAL INFORMATION


1 – Switch of external lighting

 

it is switched off

parking fires

passing or driving beam

Headlights burn only at the included ignition. During start of the engine and after switching off of ignition they automatically switch to parking fires.

In case after taking out of a key from the ignition lock light devices remained not switched off, at an open door of the driver the signal like buzzer begins to sound.

Fog lights
 

To extend the switch of external lighting in positions of parking fires or passing/driving beam to the first fixed situation.

Back fog lamps

 

Cars without fog lights

To turn the switch of external lighting in a position of passing/driving beam and to extend against the stop.

Cars with fog lights

To extend the switch of external lighting in a position of parking fires or passing/driving beam to the second fixed situation.

At the included back fog lamps on a combination of devices the control lamp burns.

Because of the strong blinding action of back fog lamps they should be included only at poor visibility.

The electric circuit of the equipment necessary for towage of the trailer installed at the plant, is designed in such a way that at operation of the trailer with back fog lamps similar lamps of the car are automatically disconnected.

2 – Illumination of control devices
 

At the included external lighting brightness of illumination of control devices smoothly is regulated by the disk regulator close to the switch of external lighting.

3 – Proofreader of an inclination of headlights

 

By means of the adjusting mechanism with the electric drive it is possible to regulate smoothly a tilt angle of light of headlights according to car loading. Thanks to it it is possible to reduce probability of dazzle of drivers of counter transport. At the same time thanks to the correct installation of headlights for the driver the best visibility conditions are created.

Process of installation of headlights can be carried out only at the turned-on passing beam.

For lowering down of a light cone the disk regulator follows from a starting position (–) to turn down.

On cars with gas-discharge lamps at inclusion of ignition the provision of headlights will automatically be coordinated with car loading.
 

4 – Heating of back glass

 

Heating functions only at the included ignition. When heating is included, the control lamp in the switch burns.

On cars with the electric drive of installation of external mirrors heating of a surface of mirrors joins at the same time with inclusion of heating of back glass.

 5 – Alarm system
 

The alarm system functions also at the switched-off ignition.

Turn on the alarm system when, for example:

 – Your car stopped because of technical malfunction;
 – You got into the accident;
 – You reached the end of traffic jam.

At the switched-on alarm system all indexes of turns blink at the same time. Control lamps of indexes of turns and a control lamp in the switch blink too.

6 – Heating of the left seat
 

The back and pillow of a seat can be warmed with a current at the included ignition.

Heating is included the disk switch regulator; to them smoothly regulate intensity of heating.

For switching off of heating it is necessary to turn the disk regulator in a starting position (–).

7 – Heating of the right seat
 

The back and pillow of a seat can be warmed with a current at the included ignition.

Heating joins the corresponding disk switch regulator; it smoothly regulates intensity of heating.

For switching off of the device it is necessary to turn the switch regulator in a starting position (–).

8 – Protivobuksovochny system with reduction of torque of the engine

ASR

The Protivobuksovochny system with reduction of torque of the engine prevents pro-slipping of driving wheels at acceleration on all-wheel drive cars by deceleration of power of the engine. The system works in all high-speed range together with anti-blocks rovochny system. At violations in work of ABS the system does not function. The Protivobuksovochny system joins automatically at start of the engine. It can be switched on and off by pressing of the switch at will. When the system is switched off, the control lamp of ASR burns.

Usually the system has to be always included. Only in certain exceptional cases when pro-slipping of wheels is desirable, it is preferable to switch off system.

For example, at the movement with antisliding chains, at the movement on deep snow or on friable soil, when rocking of the got stuck car.

After overcoming such sites it is necessary to include protivobuksovochny system again.

It is necessary for ensuring trouble-free operation of protivobuksovochny system that all wheels were dressed in identical tires. Can lead various sizes of ways of a running in of tires to undesirable deceleration of power of the engine.

 8 – Electronic system of stabilization

ESP

By means of electronic system of stabilization extent of control of dynamics of the car in boundary situations raises, for example, at the movement in abrupt turns. The electronic system allows to expand coverages anti-blocks of rovochny system and protivobuksovochny systems and reduces probability of emergence of a drift and demolition of the car under all road conditions. The system works in all range of speeds of the car together with anti-blocking system. At failure of anti-blocking system stops work and electronic system of stabilization. This system joins automatically at launch of the engine. It is possible to switch off pressing of the switch this system together with protivobuksovochny system with restriction of torque of the engine.

When the system of stabilization is switched off, the control lamp of this system burns.

Usually the system of stabilization is always included. Only in certain exceptional cases when pro-slipping of wheels is desirable, it is preferable to switch off system.

For example, at the movement on deep snow or on friable soil, when rocking of the got stuck car.

After overcoming such sites it is necessary to include system again.

It is necessary for ensuring trouble-free operation of electronic system of stabilization that all wheels were dressed in identical tires. Can lead various sizes of ways of a running in of tires to undesirable deceleration of power of the engine.

Unblocking of a cover of the hatch of a fuel-filling mouth

Unblocking of a cover of the hatch of a fuel-filling mouth happens pressing of a key. Unblocking happens as well at the switched-off ignition.
