1.7.7. Car driving with an automatic transmission

After engine start-up before inclusion of transfer press a brake pedal. By the included transfer and the released brake the car begins movement. At all do not press at the same time an accelerator and brake pedal.
In a mode D it is possible to go practically in any conditions.
At soft uniform squeezing of a pedal of an accelerator there is a timely gear shifting, providing economical fuel consumption. Manual switching is necessary only in exceptional cases. The third, second or first transfers choose only if switching on higher transfers is undesirable, or when braking by the engine.
As soon as the road situation will allow, be again switched to a mode D.

Transmission indicator
Indication of a mode and the included transfer is displayed on the display.

Lever gear shiftings (modes P, R and N)
R – a parking mode. In this mode of a wheel of the car are blocked. Include it only on the standing car and at the tightened parking brake. On the indicator of a transmission the symbol of River is displayed.
R–backing mode. Include it only on the standing car. On the indicator of a transmission the symbol R is displayed.
N–neutral situation or idling. On the indicator of a transmission the symbol N is displayed.
The lever of gear shifting can be switched from situation P only at the included ignition and the pressed pedal of a brake (blocking of the lever of gear shifting).
For inclusion of modes P or R press the button on the selector lever.
Start-up of the engine is possible only in situation P or N. At engine start-up in situation N in addition involve a pedal of the main brake or turn on the parking brake.
During gear shifting a pedal of an accelerator do not squeeze out.

Movement modes (D, 1, 2, 3 and 4)
Continuous situation for normal conditions of driving – on transfers with the 1st on the 4th.
The transmission is not switched above the established step.
For inclusion of the 3rd or 1st transfer press the button on the selector lever.
On the indicator of a transmission position of the lever of gear shifting is displayed. In a mode D the transfer included at present, besides, is shown.

Driving modes with electronic control
At SPORT mode inclusion switching occurs at higher turns (if the regulator of speed is not included). On the indicator of a transmission the corresponding signaling device burns.
The mode of automatic switching in neutral situation for fuel consumption reduction automatically establishes a transmission in situation N, for example at a stop at a traffic light.
Automatic switching in neutral situation becomes more active in the following cases:
– the lever of gear shifting is in situation D, 3, 2 or 1;
– the pedal of a brake is pressed;
– the car is at a stop;
– the pedal of an accelerator is not pressed.
At an otpuskaniye of a brake and pressing of a pedal of an accelerator the car gets under way from a place as usual.
The program of regulation of temperature after cold start automatically, thanks to a switching delay on higher transfers (the raised turns) quickly leads up the catalyst to the temperature demanded for optimum reduction of emission of harmful substances in an exhaust.
Adaptive modes will automatically coordinate switching process on other transfers with driving conditions, for example when driving with big loading or on liftings.

Winter mode of driving
In case of difficulties at a troganiye from a place on the slippery road press a key of inclusion of a mode that it is possible to make only in the provisions P, R, N, D, 3 (on the indicator of a transmission will light up the corresponding badge).
The car will get under way on the 3rd transfer.
The winter mode of operation is switched off under following conditions:
– repeated zadeystviye of a key;
– switching manually on the 2nd or 1st transfers;
– ignition switching off.
For protection against damage the winter mode of driving is automatically switched off at too high temperature of transmission oil.

Compulsory fall of transfer
By pressing of a pedal of an accelerator resistance points for the speed below a certain value a transmission are lower will be switched to a low gear. For acceleration use full capacity of the engine.

Additional braking by the engine
For use of brake functions of the engine at descent in due time include steps 3, 2 or if that is demanded by a situation, 1.
Brake action at a step 1 is especially great. If the step 1 is included at too high speed, the transmission will continue to work at the 2nd transfer until, the point of transition to the 1st transfer, for example at the expense of braking will not be reached yet.

For "pulling" of the car which has got stuck in sand, dirt, snow or in a ditch, at slightly pressed pedal of an accelerator alternately translate the switching lever forward-back between provisions D and R. Number of turns of the engine hold whenever possible low, avoid breakthroughs by pressing of a pedal of an accelerator.
The way described above apply only in the specified exceptional cases.

Exact maneuvering
For exact maneuvering, for example at installation on a parking, arrival in garage, etc., it is possible to use property of "slipping" at an otpuskaniye of a pedal of a brake.
At all do not squeeze out an accelerator and brake pedal at the same time.

The included step at a stop with working engine can be kept.
At a stop on liftings it is necessary to tighten surely the parking brake or to press a brake pedal. Do not hold the car by the included transfer at the expense of increase of number of turns of the engine to avoid a transmission overheat.
At longer stops, for example in a stopper or on moving, switch off the engine.
Before an exit from the car at first turn on the parking brake, then – a mode P and take out the ignition key.
If not to take out the ignition key, at a long time of parking of the car there can be an accumulator discharge.
To take out a key it is possible, only when the lever of gear shifting is in situation P.

Power supply interruption
At the discharged accumulator the lever of gear shifting is not switched from situation P.
In case of a discharge of the accumulator execute procedure of auxiliary start-up.
If the reason consists not in an accumulator discharge, unblock the gear shifting lever.
1. Tighten the parking brake.
2. Release from clamps a casing of the lever of gear shifting behind from the average console and wrap it up.
3. By means of a screw-driver press forward a stopper and deduce the gear shifting lever from situation P.
4. Insert a casing of the lever of gear shifting into the average console and fix it.
At repeated inclusion of a mode P again there is a blocking. Eliminate the reason of interruption of power supply.
