Control bulb of pressure of oil

The control bulb of pressure of oil lights up after inclusion of ignition and has to go out after start of the engine. Switching off of a control bulb designates that oil pressure normal. If this bulb burns at the working engine or will light up during the movement, then it is necessary to stop immediately the car and to switch off the engine. Two minutes later it is necessary to check oil level in the oil pallet (see subsection 2.3) and in case of need to add its quantity.

If oil level normal, and a control bulb lights up again after start of the engine, then it is necessary to switch off the engine and to tow off the car for check and repair of the lubrication system of the engine.


Prevention

It is impossible to allow operation of the engine at the burning control bulb of pressure of oil.


Control bulb of accumulator charging

The control bulb of accumulator charging lights up after inclusion of ignition and has to go out after start of the engine at accumulator charging. Fire of this bulb at the working engine designates malfunction of a contour of accumulator charging. During the movement in that case it is necessary to stop and check integrity and a tension of a maple belt of the drive of the generator.

If the belt in good shape and its tension normal, and a control bulb still shines at the working engine, then it is necessary to check an accumulator charging contour. It is possible to continue the movement to the nearest service station, however, it is necessary to limit to a minimum consumption of electric energy from the accumulator, having switched off everything excess consumers of current who are not required by traffic regulations.

The index of temperature of cooling liquid and bulb of the alarm system about an engine overheat

Has to be in process of normal operation of the car of the shooter of the index of temperature of cooling liquid on average, the white range of a scale.

If the arrow moves on the red site of a scale, and the alarm system bulb about an overheat of the engine will light up, then it is necessary to stop immediately the car and to switch off the engine.

If the bulb shines, and the arrow of the index is in the initial range of a scale (the engine cold), then it can mean too low level of cooling liquid. If level normal, and after start of the engine a bulb signals about an engine overheat again, then it is necessary to ask for the help on service station.


Prevention

It is impossible to continue the movement with the shining engine overheat bulb as it threatens with serious damage of the engine.


Bulb of the alarm system of turning on of the emergency brake and too low level of brake fluid

Lights up if the lever of the emergency brake is not completely released (the emergency brake is not switched off).

Also lights up if the level of brake fluid in a tank too low. It is necessary to check the level of brake fluid and to fill its level to the sign "MAX". Need of frequent completion of level of brake fluid testifies to leakage of hydraulic system. It is necessary to ask for the help on service station.

Control bulb of anti-blocking system (ABS)

In versions of the cars equipped with anti-blocking system simultaneous fire of control bulbs of the ABS system and too low level of brake fluid means that in hydraulic knot of management of anti-blocking system (ABS) there was a pressure drop.

If only the control bulb of anti-blocking system (ABS) lights up, then it is necessary to stop the car, to switch off ignition and a minute later to start the engine again. If the control bulb after start of the engine or during the movement lights up again, then it means that the electronic actuation device of anti-blocking system registered malfunction of system.

In both cases (too low level of brake fluid and malfunction of anti-blocking system) it is necessary to ask immediately for the help on service station.

Index of level of fuel and control bulb of a reserve

The index shows, also after switching off of ignition, approximate amount of fuel in the fuel tank of the car. When it is on the red site of a scale, it means that fuels in a tank there were less than 8 dm3. It in addition confirms fire of a control bulb.

Control bulb of preliminary warming up of the engine

This bulb lights up after inclusion of ignition when the engine cold. Its switching off means that glow plugs are warmed to the level doing possible start of the diesel engine. At once after switching off of a bulb it is necessary to start the engine.

Tachometer

Shows the speed of a bent shaft of the engine expressed in thousands of revolutions per minute.

Speedometer

Specifies the speed of the movement in kilometers per hour. Besides, contains the counter of the kilometers passed by the car since the beginning of operation and also the daily counter of kilometers specifying number of the kilometers passed from the moment of the last zeroing of the counter.

Button of zeroing of the daily counter of kilometers

Pressing this button causes zeroing of indications of the daily counter of kilometers.

Control bulb of indexes of turns

Blinks after inclusion of the index of turn. If blinking frequency considerably increases, then it means that one of bulbs of indexes of turn does not burn.

Control bulb of high beam headlamps

Lights up after turning on of high beam headlamps.

Control bulb of emergency fires

Lights up after inclusion of emergency fires.

Bulb of the alarm system of wear of brake shoes

At some versions of equipment of cars there is a bulb of the alarm system of wear of brake shoes which lights up when brake overlays of disk brakes of forward wheels wear out to thickness of 2 mm. It means need of the fastest replacement of brake shoes for brakes of both forward wheels (4 pieces).


Prevention

The bulb of the alarm system of wear of brake shoes lights up after inclusion of ignition and dies away only after single pressing a brake pedal, confirming, thus, the correct functioning of its contour.
