 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Press and keep a brake pedal.
  2. Completely tighten a manual brake.
  3. Keeping pressed the blocking button, establish the selector lever in position P and release the blocking button.

The engine can be got only at a finding of the lever of the selector in position Р or N, Features of operation and auxiliary systems see.

At parking out of the blue it is enough to establish the selector lever in position Р. At a road slope tighten at first against the stop a manual brake and only then translate the selector lever in position Р. Thanks to it loading decreases for the mechanism of blocking and is facilitated страгивание the lever of the selector from position Р.

Positions of the lever of the selector

In the given section the description of all positions of the lever of the selector is resulted.

The display: positions of the lever of the selector

The allocated indication of actual position of the lever of the selector is deduced on the control panel display.

Р - lay blocking

In the given position driving wheels are blocked mechanically. This position should be included only on the motionless car.

For installation of the lever of the selector in position Р and its conclusion from the given position press the blocking button (on the selector lever) and, simultaneously, a brake pedal.

R - backing transfer

At installation of the lever of the selector the given position joins backing transfer.

Backing transfer include only at the motionless car and at engine work idling.

For installation of the lever of the selector in position "To" press the button of blocking and simultaneously a brake pedal. At the included ignition and a finding of the lever of the selector in position R backing headlights burn.

N - neutral position (idling position)

The given position is idling position.

D - a substantive provision at advance

In the given position switching on the raised and lowered steps of a forward course is carried out automatically, depending on loading of the engine, speed and the dynamic program of switching (DPS).

For transfer of the lever of the selector from position R in position D at speed less than 5 km/h or the motionless car are necessary press a brake pedal.

Under certain circumstances, (for example, at movement in mountains or to the trailer) happens more preferably temporarily to be switched to the manual program of switching see more low.

S - sports position

Establish the selector lever in position S at movement in a sports mode. More later switching on the raised steps allows to use reserves of capacity of the engine completely.

For transfer of the lever of the selector from position N in position S at speed less than 5 km/h or the motionless car press a brake pedal

At inadvertent transfer during movement of the lever of the selector in position N before to return to a mode D or S, dump gas and wait falling of turns to an idling mode.

For the reasons of the expense of fuel and preservation of the environment on some updatings transmission is arranged so that the maximum speed of the car is reached only in position S

Blocking of the lever of the selector

Blocking of the lever of the selector prevents involuntary inclusion of a range of movement and by that spontaneous movement of the car from a place.

Blocking cancellation is carried out as follows:

  1. Include ignition.
  2. Press a pedal of a brake and keep simultaneously pressed the blocking button.

Automatic blocking of the lever of the selector

At the included ignition the selector lever is blocked in position P and N. For страгивания it from these positions press a brake pedal. As a reminder to the driver at a finding of the lever of the selector in positions Р and N on the display there is a following indication:

Beim Einlegen einer Fahrstufe im Stand Fussbremse betatigen (at a choice of a mode of movement of the motionless car press a brake pedal).

Besides, on a side scene of the lever of the selector the symbol of automatic blocking of the lever of the selector lights up.

The selector lever is blocked only on the motionless car, and also at speed to 5 km/h. At speed approximately from 5 km/h and above there is an automatic cancellation of blocking of the lever of the selector which is in position N.

At fast (without pauses) transfer of the lever of the selector through position N (for example, from position R in position D) the selector lever is not blocked. It gives, for example, movement possibility враскачку the got stuck car. If the selector lever at the released pedal of a brake is more than 1 second in position N it is blocked.

The blocking button

The button of blocking of the lever of the selector interferes with involuntary transfer of the lever of the selector in some positions. By pressing of the given button the selector lever is deblocked.

Key blocking in the ignition lock

After deenergizing of ignition the key can be taken from the lock only at a finding of the lever of the selector in position Р (lay blocking).

After extraction of a key from the lock the lever is blocked in position Р.

Device Kick-down

Device Kick-down allows to realise the maximum acceleration.

By sharp pressing of a pedal of an accelerator with transition of a point of resistance automatics is switched, depending on turns and speed, on a hill-climbing gear. Switching on the following raised transfer occurs right after achievements of the maximum turns of the engine corresponding to given transfer.

The dynamic program of switching (DPS)

Management of automatic transmission is carried out by electronics.

Management of automatic transmission is carried out by electronics. Switching on raised and hill-climbing gears is carried out according to programs of movement stored in memory.

At a reserved manner of driving automatics chooses the economic program of switching.

At a temperamental manner of driving with sharp dispersals and frequent differences of speed, with use of the maximum speed or after sharp pressing an accelerator pedal (Kick-down) automatics works in a range of sports programs. Late transition to the raised transfers allows to realise a stock of capacity of the engine completely. Switching on hill-climbing gears is carried out at higher turns of the engine.

The choice optimum on concrete conditions of the program of movement represents continuous process. However irrespective of it it is possible to be switched to more sports program, sharply having pressed an accelerator pedal. Thus the transmission is switched to the lowered step corresponding to actual speed of movement, providing possibility of dynamical dispersal (for example, at overtaking) without necessity of sharp pressing against the stop accelerator pedals. After return switching on the raised step and at a corresponding mode of driving work under the primary program is restored.

The movement program in mountains operates a choice of transfers on liftings and descents. Thanks to it it is not required to be switched at movement to lifting. Pressing of a pedal of a brake at movement under a bias carries out switching on the lowered step. Thereof it is possible to brake the engine, without resorting to manual switching.

Introduction

Models it is completed бесступенчатой with transmission with electronic control (клиноцепной variator Multitronic). Unlike usual automatic transmission the transfer number changes not a step gear change, and is continuous. It promotes along with another to optimisation of comfort of traction effort and provides the optimum expense of fuel.

The choice of the corresponding transfer relation of transmission (switching on the raised and lowered ranges of movement) is carried out completely automatically, according to programs of movement stored in memory, see more low, the Dynamic program of regulation (DRP).

The transmission is completed also with system Tiptronic. The given system gives to the driver, at desire, possibility of manual switching of ranges, see more low.

Maintenance instructions

On the car with transmission Multitronic communication of the engine with driving wheels, unlike usual automatic transmission, is carried out through multidisk coupling, instead of through the twisting moment converter. As a result the car is a bit less subject to spontaneous movement at short-term stops with idling the engine and established in position D, S or R the selector lever. It is necessary to remember it first of all on biases/liftings if you went earlier by the car with usual automatic transmission with the converter of a twisting moment and are yet familiar with the given feature of a variator Maintenance instructions of the car with Multitronic see
