1.7.6. Protivobuksovochny system (TCS) (additional equipment)

During movement along slippery roads the protivobuksovochny system (TCS) prevents pro-slipping of driving wheels, thereby helping the car to gather speed. This system also provides sufficient traction effort and controllability when passing with the car of turns at a speed.

"SLIP Control" ("Management of pro-slipping of wheels")
Prevents pro-slipping of wheels on slippery roads to time of a start of motion or when passing by the car of turns at a speed to avoid loss of traction effort on driving wheels.
The Protivobuksovochny system (TCS) does not influence directly brakes. Reduce speed before entering turn.

ATTENTION
When function of management of pro-slipping of wheels of "SLIP Control" joins, the control lamp of protivobuksovochny system (TCS) begins to blink. In this case release a pedal of an accelerator and support moderate speed.

NOTE
The Protivobuksovochny system is intended only for the help when driving the car; it is necessary to observe all precautionary measures at the movement in adverse weather and on roads with a slippery covering.

Mode of inclusion of protivobuksovochny system (TCS ON)
In the mode of inclusion of protivobuksovochny system (TCS) the control lamp on the dashboard does not burn.
1. Switch off the engine, and then turn on it again. The TCS system will join automatically.
2. When control of pro-slipping of wheels is exercised correctly, it is possible to feel weak vibration of the car. This consequence of braking of the car and is not dangerous.
3. During start of the engine from under a cowl clicks can sound: it means that the protivobuksovochny system makes self-diagnostics.
4. When the car leaves a snow drift or dirt, pressing a pedal of an accelerator can not lead to increase in speed of the engine.

Work of control lamps
The control lamp lights up at turn of the ignition key in the provision of "ON" ("Incl.") and "START" ("Starter") and dies away in three seconds.
The control lamp of the warning of malfunction of protivobuksovochny system (TCS-OFF) lights up if the system finds malfunction (emergence of abnormal conditions in work).
If this control lamp lit up, stop the car in the safe place and switch off the engine. After that start the engine again to check whether the control lamp went out.

NOTE
When the control lamp of protivobuksovochny system (TCS-OFF) lights up, management of pro-slipping of wheels automatically stops for safety.
