Arrangement and functions of governing bodies

CARS WITH A 5-DOOR BODY THE HATCHBACK

The control panel and the control panel differ in a microclimate from shown on an illustration. All differences are in detail described below in appropriate sections.

Switches of power windows are located in two places: in front of the handle of an armrest of a driver's door and on the central console about the lever of the parking brake.

On a control panel the set of indicators and signaling devices by means of which the driver receives important information on functioning of units and systems of the car is bred.

Check of serviceability of light signaling devices and indicators

The most part of signaling devices and indicators has to light up for short time at ignition inclusion (the ignition key will turn in situation III. It is provided for control of serviceability of signaling devices and indicators. If any signaling device or the indicator did not light up at ignition inclusion, you will not be able to receive in due time a signal of refusal or abnormal functioning of the corresponding unit or system of the car. At failure detection of a signaling device or the indicator it is necessary to replace a lamp or to carry out necessary repair.

Signaling device of pressure drop of oil in the engine

This signaling device has to light up at ignition inclusion (a key will turn in situation II) and to die away after start of the engine. The signaling device should not burn at the working engine. If the signaling device started blinking, it indicates short-term sharp pressure drop in the engine lubrication system then pressure of oil was restored to a normal amount. If in engine operating time the signaling device burns constantly, it testifies to emergency pressure decrease of oil to dangerous level. Serious damages and an exit of the engine out of operation are possible. In both cases (when the signaling device blinks or burns constantly) it is necessary to take urgent measures which are described below.

ATTENTION

Operation of the engine with a low pressure in the lubrication system leads practically at once to an engine exit out of operation because of serious mechanical damages of responsible details. Therefore at inclusion of a signaling device of emergency pressure drop of oil it is necessary to stop urgently and quickly to kill the engine.

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Curtail on a roadside or to the region of the carriageway, stop the car and switch off the engine.
2. Having waited one minute, open a cowl and check oil level in the engine. In spite of the fact that oil level in the engine and pressure in the lubrication system are directly not connected with each other, short-term pressure decrease during the movement of the car on turn or other sharp maneuvers can be caused by very low level of oil in the engine case pallet.
3. If necessary add oil in the engine and bring oil level to norm, being guided on tags on the oil probe, see the Head Routine maintenance.
4. Start the engine and watch a signaling device of emergency pressure drop of oil. If the signaling device did not go out within 10 seconds after start of the engine, switch off the engine. It testifies to existence of serious malfunctions of the engine without which elimination it is impossible to continue the movement on the car under the own steam. (Address to Poddomkrachivaniye's Section and towage)

Signaling device of the category of the battery

This signaling device has to light up at ignition inclusion (a key will turn in situation II) and to die away after start of the engine. If the signaling device joined at the working engine, it testifies to the termination of a charge of the battery from the generator.

At fire of a signaling device at once switch off everything consumers of electric energy: autoradio tape recorder, heater, heater of back glass, air conditioner, tempostat, etc. Do not turn on power windows, and also other drives and devices consuming the electric power. Try to support steady operation of the engine that it did not decay. The subsequent start of the engine a starter will lead to the strong additional category of the battery.

Having reduced electric load of the battery in the greatest possible degree, you will be able to pass some more kilometers before the battery is discharged so that will not be able to support normal operation of the engine. At inclusion of a signaling device of the category of the battery at once go to service station or to a workshop where to you will help to eliminate malfunction.

Signaling device of an open trunk lid

The signaling device joins at the open or leaky closed trunk lid.

Indicator of inclusion of a driving beam of headlights

The indicator lights up along with inclusion of a driving beam of headlights. The description of the switch of lighting and the switch of light of headlights is provided further in this Section.

Signaling device of malfunction of systems of the engine

This signaling device lights up for some seconds at ignition inclusion (a key will turn in the ignition lock in situation II). If the signaling device joined in any other time, it testifies to possible malfunction of one of systems of decrease in toxicity of emissions in the atmosphere. Even if you do not notice any changes in operation of the engine and deterioration of dynamics of the car, malfunctions of these systems can become the reason of increase in fuel consumption and toxicity of the engine. Continuation of operation of the car with the included signaling device can lead to serious damages of the engine and its exit out of operation.

If the signaling device of malfunction of systems of the engine joined on the run of the car, stop in a safe place on a roadside or at the region of the carriageway and switch off the engine. Then again start the engine and watch a signaling device. If the signaling device continues to burn, it is necessary to address urgently on service station for check and repair of systems of the engine. Before elimination of malfunctions of systems of the engine move on the car with a moderate speed. Avoid sharp dispersals of the car by full pressing a pedal of an accelerator and do not move at a high speed.

Even if the signaling device of malfunction of systems of the engine dies away after switching off and restart of the engine. You should address on service station in that case when inclusion of a signaling device on the run of the car happens rather often.

Continuation of operation of the car with the included signaling device of malfunction of systems of the engine can lead to serious damages of the catalytic converter of the fulfilled gases or the engine. On the defects which arose because of operation of the car with the included signaling device of malfunction of systems of the engine, guarantee certificates do not extend.


Indicator of inclusion of a parking brake / signaling device of falling of level of brake fluid

The indicator carries out two functions.

  1. The indicator burns at the switched-on parking brake. On some modifications of the car the indicator also lights up at inclusion of a starter (the ignition key will turn in situation III) and the switched-off parking brake. The movement with the switched-on parking brake leads to an overheat and failure of brake mechanisms of back wheels, fast wear of tires, and also can become the reason of shutdown of anti-blocking brake system.
  2. If a signaling device it is necessary to burn after switching off of the parking brake or lit up during the movement of the car, it can testify to falling of level of working liquid in the tank of the main brake cylinder. One of the reasons of gradual decrease in level of brake fluid in the tank is normal operational wear of brake shoes. At inclusion of a signaling device you should check a condition of brake shoes and tightness of the hydraulic drive of brakes.

Indicators of inclusion of indexes of turn and alarm light system

Indicators of inclusion of indexes of turn work along with the corresponding lamps of indexes of turn. The direction of arrows of indicators shows the direction of turn or change of a lane. If indicators do not blink or blink with the increased frequency, it, as a rule, indicates burn-out of a lamp in one of lamps of indexes of turn. Replace the fused lamp at the first opportunity as other participants of traffic cannot see your signals of change of the direction of the movement. Idle indexes of turn can become the road accident reason. There are two types of systems of the alarm system. Your car is equipped with system of the alarm system which meets requirements of the standards existing in your country. One type of system provides simultaneous turning on of indicators of the indexes of turn (located on a control panel) and all lamps of indexes of turn. The system of the alarm system of the second type in addition turns on the indicator of the alarm system which is located on a control panel.

Signaling device of not fastened seat belt (for some modification of the car)

The signaling device lights up at ignition inclusion (the ignition key will turn in situation II). He reminds the driver and passengers of need to fasten seat belts. Besides, if you did not fasten the seat belt, the sound signaling device in addition will join. The sound signaling device of not fastened seat belt will be switched off in some seconds, and the light signaling device will continue to burn until you do not fasten a belt. Signaling devices do not join if you fastened the seat belt before ignition inclusion.

Signaling device of malfunction of anti-blocking brake system (ABS) (separate models)

The signaling device has to light up for some seconds at inclusion of ignition or a starter (the ignition key will turn respectively in situation II or III). Inclusion of a signaling device in any other conditions indicates malfunction in anti-blocking system. If the signaling device lit up on the run of the car, stop in a safe place and switch off the engine. Try to eliminate possible failure in system, having restarted the engine.

After start of the engine check a condition of a signaling device. If it was not switched off or again lit up during the movement of the car, it is necessary to address on HUNDRED for diagnostics and repair of ABS. At the included signaling device of malfunction of ABS the working brake system of the car remains quite efficient, however ABS will not work.

SRS

Signaling device of malfunction of an additional security system

The signaling device is intended for the warning of the driver of possible refusal of an additional security system.
If:

  • The signaling device does not light up at ignition inclusion (the ignition key will turn in situation II);
  • The signaling device continues to burn after start of the engine;
  • The signaling device joined and burns in the constant or blinking mode on the run of the car – diagnostics and repair of system is necessary.
ECONO

ECONO indicator of economy mode of operation of the engine (separate models)

The ECONO indicator helps the driver to improve fuel profitability of the car. The indicator turns on if the engine of the car works at the most favorable modes from the point of view of fuel consumption.

The indicator has to light up for some seconds at ignition inclusion (the ignition key will turn in situation II). The indicator remains included until the engine continues to work economically. At an engine deviation from the most economy mode and increase in fuel consumption the indicator is switched off. If the control lever a transmission is in the first or second situation, the ECONO indicator does not turn on at all (an exception modifications of the car with a besstupenchaty variator make). With a besstupenchaty variator the indicator does not work at cars at inclusion of ranges 2 or L (6-band option of transmission) or if at the included range of D the dynamic mode (S) of management of transmission (5-band option of transmission) is chosen.

Besides, the ECONO indicator does not work at a speed of the movement of the car less than 20 km/h and at the engine, not heated-up up to the normal working temperature.

Signaling device of a reserve reserve of fuel (separate models)

Inclusion of a signaling device means that in a tank there were less than 6.5 l of gasoline. You need to fill a fuel tank urgently.

The indicator of the anti-theft device (immobilizer) (for some modification of the car)

The indicator has to light up for some seconds at ignition inclusion (the ignition key will turn in situation II). After taking out of a key from the ignition lock the indicator of an immobilizer blinks within several seconds and then dies away. If the improper key is inserted into the lock of ignition, the indicator of an immobilizer starts blinking. Thus the anti-theft device blocks start of the engine. If the indicator of an immobilizer blinks, it is impossible to start the engine.

Speedometer

The speedometer shows the speed of the movement of the car. The scale of a speedometer can be graduated in km/h or at the same time in km/h and miles/h depending on option of execution of the device. On some modifications of the car inclusion of the sound warning signal if the speed of the movement exceeds 120 km/h is provided.

Tachometer (separate models)

The tachometer shows the frequency of rotation of a cranked shaft of the engine. The scale of a tachometer is graduated in terms of rpm. In order to avoid an engine exit out of operation it is not necessary to exceed the most admissible frequency of rotation of a cranked shaft (the arrow of a tachometer should not come into a red zone of a scale).

Counter of the general run

The counter shows the general run of the car (in kilometers or miles depending on option of execution of the device).

The run measuring instrument from the moment of dumping

The device reflects run of the car from the moment of the last zeroing of indications (in kilometers or miles depending on execution option). To nullify indications of a measuring instrument of run and to reckon run anew, it is necessary to press the dumping button.

Index of temperature of the engine

The device shows temperature of cooling liquid of the engine. Normal working temperature of the engine at operation of the car in usual conditions corresponds to the average provision of an arrow of the index. In very hot weather or at the movement of the car on long raising of the shooter of the index can rise to a blue tag on a scale. If temperature of the engine increased so that the arrow of the index is on a red tag (N) of a scale, it is necessary to stop immediately the car and to find out the engine overheat reason.

The index of a reserve of fuel in a tank

The device shows relative amount of fuel in a tank. The index works with the minimum error if the car is on an equal horizontal platform. At the movement of the car on twisting or hilly roads the error of the device increases.

If to switch off ignition, the arrow of the index of level of fuel will remain on a place. After gas station of a fuel tank and inclusion of ignition of the shooter of the index will gradually turn into the new situation corresponding to the actual amount of fuel in a tank. As soon as the arrow of the index falls to the tag "Е" (An empty tank), it is necessary to fill a fuel tank urgently.
