Control systems of speed (темпостат) and Speedtronic
General informationThe control system of speed (темпостат) is included in a basic equipment of the considered models. The system allows to support automatically chosen cruiser speed of the movement of the car without impact on the accelerator pedal. Value of cruiser speed has to be not lower than 40 km/h. Application of a tempostat becomes especially convenient at long movement along the low-loaded direct country highways. For the purpose of safety it is not recommended to include темпостат at the movement in the city, on twisting, abounding with turns, to roads, on a slippery paving, in a heavy rain and at other adverse weather conditions. In the listed above cases the driver has to have an opportunity to completely control the mode of the movement of the car.
The lever switch of management of functioning of a tempostat is located at the left on a steering column, assemblies of the combined understeering switch are higher.
Management of functioning of a tempostat
Tempostat of a standard designThe switch of management of functioning of a tempostat is located on the right on a steering column
The design of the switch of a tempostat allows to enter into memory of system as the cruiser any current speed of the car if it exceeds value in 40 km/h, - rather quickly to wring out the lever up or down. After input of cruiser speed release the accelerator pedal.
When turning a key in the ignition lock in situation 1 or 0 there is a dumping of the tempostat of cruiser value brought in memory.
Tempostat with the speed limiterOrder of use of the switch of a tempostat with the speed limiter
Inclusion of a tempostat is made by push-up of the lever of the switch down.
Speedtronic systemOrder of use of the switch of a tempostat on the models equipped with the Speedtronic system
The Speedtronic system is темпостат with variable and constant limiters of speed.
Variable limiter of speedThe variable limiter of speed allows not to exceed due to restriction of turns of the engine some threshold of speed, for example, in need of observance of traffic regulations.
Activation of the mode of variable restriction of the high-speed mode is made by pressing a face part of the handle of the lever of the switch of a tempostat and is followed by operation of the yellow LIM indicator on the handle, the similar inscription is highlighted on the display screen.
Change of value of speed limit is made by push-up of the lever of the switch up or down. The chosen value is displayed the information display. At the working engine input of any restriction of the high-speed mode, since value of 30 km/h is possible.
Unlike the mode of a tempostat squeezing of a pedal of a foot brake does not lead to shutdown of the limiter of speed.
Constant limiter of speedBy means of the constant limiter the maximum speed of the movement of the car can be limited, for example, at operation it with winter tires.
Restriction can be set in the range from 190 km/h to the speed possible limit of the movement of the car. The set constant restriction of speed continues to work also in case of activation of variable restriction.
For activation of the mode press a face part of the switch. transfer the lever of the AT selector to situation "P", and a key in the ignition lock - to situation 2 (the engine do not start). Then, having waited for about a second, pull the lever on yourself, - on the screen of the display value of speed will be highlighted. At a lever otpuskaniye indication will begin to blink, - installation of speed is made by procrastination of the lever up or down. Input of the chosen value in memory of system is made by procrastination of the lever on itself, - the confirming sound signal has to be distributed.
Installation dumping can be in case of need made, - increase the entered value until on the screen the threefold dash is not highlighted (---), then pull the lever on yourself to a sound signal.
At approach of the current speed of the movement of the car to the established extreme value the last is displayed information the display in combination with LIM mark.
If the limiter does not cope with an objective, for example, at the movement downhill, the alarm buzzer is activated, and the inscription LIM on the screen of the information display begins to blink.
