Switches and switches

GENERAL INFORMATION


1 illumination of devices


At the included ignition by rotation of the corrugated handle (1) it is possible to regulate smoothly brightness of a background of the display of a control panel and the average console.

The chosen brightness of a background of the display is regulated automatically, depending on a surrounding background.

Besides, at included light brightness of devices, the display and illumination of the average console can be regulated smoothly rotation of the corrugated handle (1).

2 regulator of a tilt angle of headlights


Rotation of the corrugated handle of an electric regulator of a tilt angle of headlights it is possible to change smoothly the provision of their optical axes, according to the actual loading of the car.

Thanks to it extent of dazzle of drivers of counter transport will not exceed inevitable level. At the same time the correct installation of headlights creates the most favorable visibility conditions of the road for the driver.
The tilt angle of headlights is regulated only at the included passing beam.

Noted provisions of a regulator approximately correspond to the following conditions of loading of the car:

0 in the car the driver and the forward passenger, a luggage carrier is empty
The I all places are occupied, the luggage carrier is empty
The II all places are occupied, the luggage carrier is loaded
III took a place of the driver, the luggage carrier is loaded

3 switch of light


O
lighting выключено1)

lay fires
passing or driving beam

Having pulled on itself the switch at its stay in the provision of a parking passing or driving beam, it is possible to include fog lights or back foggy lamps.

Foggy devices burn only at the included ignition. During start of the engine and after ignition switching off they are automatically switched to a parking light.

ATTENTION

After key extraction from the ignition lock at not switched off light and an open door of the driver the buzzer signal is distributed.



1) Day external lighting
In some export updatings at the included ignition the passing beam of the lowered brightness burns.

General provisions

When using the above described signaling and lighting devices observe standard requirements.

On cars with a right-hand steering the arrangement of switches differs from cars with a left foreign steering. However symbols on switches correspond to car symbols with a left foreign steering.


ATTENTION

At inclusion of ignition of cars to xenon light there is an automatic control of a tilt angle of headlights according to loading.



Fog lights and foggy фонари*


Burn at inclusion of lay fires or a passing beam.

At their inclusion the control lamp which has been built in in the switch burns. At the included back foggy lamps separate switching off of fog lights is impossible.

Back foggy lamp


The back foggy lamp burns only at the included passing or driving beam, and on cars with fog lights – also at included lay fires.

At inclusion of back foggy lamps also fog lights automatically join. Thus in both switches control lamps light up.
ATTENTION

The system of electric equipment of cars with traction and coupling устройством* a factory complete set provides automatic shutdown of back foggy lamps of the car at trailer operation.



General provision
When using the above described signaling and lighting devices observe standard requirements.

1 antiprobuksovochny system (ASR) * or electronic program of stabilization of stability (ESP) *


ASR/ESP joins automatically at engine start. In need of it it is possible to include and disconnect in key pressing.
At the disconnected device the control lamp burns.

2 alarm light system

At turning on of the alarm light system synchronously with it the control lamp in its switch blinks.

Besides, shooters of indexes of turn of a control panel blink.

The alarm system works and at the switched-off ignition.

At failure with disclosure of safety cushions the alarm light system turns on automatically.


1 heating of a seat водителя*

At the included ignition it is possible to use electroheating of a pillow and a seat back.

Heating joins and is smoothly regulated by the corrugated handle.

For heating inclusion the corresponding corrugated handle is deduced from situation 0 and turns with installation in one of six possible temperature ranges. At the same time with a heating system illumination of a digital marking of the corresponding corrugated handle joins also.

2 heating of back glass

Electroheating works only at the included ignition. While it is included, in its switch the control lamp burns.
Electroheating of back glass is switched off approximately in 10 minutes independently.

As soon as visibility through back glass will be restored, its heating needs to be switched off. Having reduced an electric power expense, you will reduce also fuel consumption.
ATTENTION

On cars with the aerial on back glass it are three top links of the conductor which therefore do not heat up.



3 heating of a seat forward пассажира*

At the included ignition it is possible to use electroheating of a pillow and a seat back.
Heating joins and is smoothly regulated by the corrugated handle.

For heating inclusion the corresponding corrugated handle is deduced from situation 0 and turns with installation in one of six possible temperature ranges. At the same time with a heating system illumination of a digital marking of the corresponding corrugated handle joins also.
ATTENTION

Whenever possible are not on seats on a lap and do not subject a point of a surface of a seat to strong influence by different way not to damage heating elements.



Lever switch of indexes of turn, driving / passing beam


Switch turn index

Indexes of turn work only at the included ignition.
For inclusion of the right indexes of turn – the lever up.
For inclusion of the left indexes of turn – the lever down.
At the included indexes of turn the control lamp synchronously blinks
After completion of turn indexes are switched off automatically.

Signal giving about lane change

The lever is wrung out up or down to a point of resistance and keeps in this situation – the control lamp synchronously should blink.

Driving / passing beam

Driving beam – the lever wring out forward.
Passing beam – the lever in average situation.

Light signal

Delay the lever to a steering wheel to a resistance point – the control lamp of a driving beam lights up.

Inclusion of lay fires

Lay fires burn only at the switched-off ignition.
For inclusion of lay fires on the right – translate the lever up.
For inclusion of lay fires at the left – translate the lever down.

Xenon light

At inclusion of ignition and during movement to the included passing beam there is an automatic control of a tilt angle of headlights according to loading and a movement mode (for example, at dispersal, braking). Thanks to it extent of dazzle of drivers of counter transport will not exceed inevitable level.
At malfunction on the display of the monitoring system of malfunctions of the car the alarm symbol lights up
ATTENTION

After key extraction from the ignition lock at not switched off light and an open door of the driver the warning signal of a buzzer is distributed.
When using the above described signaling and lighting devices observe standard requirements.
