GENERAL INFORMATION

Control indicators

CONTROL LAMP OF THE CHARGE (4)

Lights up at ignition inclusion, should die away after engine start
If burns during movement, stop the car and muffle the engine. The storage battery is discharged. Check a condition of a driving belt of the generator. Break or a proskalzyvaniye of a belt conducts to violation of functioning of the water pump (and the vacuum pump of brake system on diesel models). If a belt as it should be, address for consultation in Opel company service center.

CONTROL LAMP OF FUEL CONSUMPTION (5)

Lights up, when the arrow of a measuring instrument of fuel consumption enters into a red zone of a display scale. Can light up slightly earlier during commission of turns.


Prevention
Try not to allow complete production of all fuel from a fuel tank!


CONTROL LAMP OF SYSTEM OF ANTI-BLOCKING OF BRAKES (IF THAT IS PROVIDED) (6)

Lights up at inclusion of ignition and burns during time of performance of self-diagnostics of ABS system.
If it is not switched off some seconds later, or lights up during movement, refusal in system therefore takes place. Thus the brake system continues function regularly in a usual mode thus during sharp braking the car can to go the yuzy - correct as appropriate a driving manner. The ABS system is equipped with the built-in block of self-diagnostics - for reading of which codes of malfunctions address in Opel company service center.

CONTROL LAMP OF PRESSURE OF OIL (7)

Lights up at ignition inclusion, should die away at increase of turns after engine start.
If lights up during movement, immediately muffle the engine. The probability of violation of supply of oil for greasing of internal components of the engine that can lead to jamming of the last and unexpected blocking of driving wheels is not excluded. Squeeze out a coupling pedal, transfer RKPP control lever to neutral transfer muffle the engine.

Prevention
In order to avoid blocking of a steering wheel, do not take a key from the ignition lock until the car finally will not stop! Check level of impellent oil in the engine. In case of need address for consultation in Opel company service center.


CONTROL LAMP OF THE ALARM SYSTEM (8)


Starts to blink at turning on of the alarm system

CONTROL LAMP OF INDEXES OF TURN OF THE TRAILER (AT THE CORRESPONDING COMPLETE SET OF THE CAR) (9)


Starts to blink synchronously with indexes of turns of the trailer. Does not function at failure of a lamp of one or more indexes of turns of the car / trailer.

CONTROL LAMP OF INDEXES OF THE LEFT TURN (10)

Starts to blink synchronously with indexes of turn of the car at inclusion of the last. The increase in frequency of a blinking testifies to failure of a lamp of the index.

CONTROL LAMP OF INDEXES OF THE RIGHT TURN (11)

Starts to blink synchronously with indexes of turn of the car at inclusion of the last. The increase in frequency of a blinking testifies to failure of a lamp of the index.

CONTROL LAMP OF INCLUSION OF THE DRIVING BEAM (12)

Lights up at inclusion of a driving beam of head headlights, and also during a blinking the last.

CONTROL LAMP OF PREHEAT (DIESEL MODELS) (13)

Lights up during functioning of system of preheat of the diesel engine.

CONTROL LAMP OF THE ELECTRONIC CONTROL SYSTEM OF THE ENGINE (14)

Lights up at ignition inclusion. On diesel models should die away about 3 seconds later after. On petrol models it is necessary to burn until the engine will not be started, then should go out.
Inclusion during movement of the car testifies to failure of electronics. Thus the control system of the engine is automatically switched in a mode of emergency functioning, providing possibility of continuation of operation of the car, despite increase of fuel consumption and decrease in efficiency of return of the engine. For check and performance of necessary repair drive away the car in Opel company service center. Short-term inclusions of a lamp can be disregarded.
Try to refrain from using the car before elimination of causes of failure of a control system by the engine as it can lead to failure of the catalytic converter.

CONTROL LAMP OF BRAKE SYSTEM (15)

Lights up at ignition inclusion if the parking brake is cocked.
If continues to burn after an otpuskaniye of the parking brake falling of level of brake liquid, or (on diesel models) decrease in depth of depression of the vacuum amplifier of brakes, therefore, takes place.


Remark
Frequent use of a foot brake on diesel models can lead to temporary decrease in depth of depression and fire of a control lamp (15).

Carefully stop the car, remembering that the brake way can increase a little, and the pedal of a foot brake should be squeezed out with big effort.


Prevention
Further operation of the car at a burning lamp (15) is dangerous! Consult in Opel company service center.


CONTROL LAMP OF INCLUSION OF THE ALL-WHEEL DRIVE MODE (16)

Lights up at control lever transfer by a transfer case to the situation "4H" or "4L".

CONTROL LAMP OF THE SAFETY CUSHION (17)

Should flash semikratno at ignition inclusion, then go out. Otherwise in system of safety of the driver / the forward passenger malfunction which will lead to refusal of operation of a pillow (ек) safety in case of failure takes place. Address for consultation in Opel company service center.

Electronic clock

The digital chronometer continues to function regardless positions of the switch of ignition.
Installation of time is made by pressing of the buttons located under the display of hours:
The N = At a nazhimaniye on this button occurs fast switching of installation of hours
The m = At a nazhimaniye on this button is made switching of installation of minutes

Tachometer

The indicator of a tachometer is located in the left part of a combination of devices in a guard. Competent use of indications of a tachometer helps to reduce fuel consumption essentially. The price of one division of a scale of the indicator makes 500 rpm.
Black zone of a scale: A normal working range of frequency of rotation of the engine - try to support engine turns on any transfer in an average part of a working range of a scale (approximately between values of 2 000 and 3 000 rpm) avoid sharp jumps of frequency of rotation of the engine.
Red zone of a scale: Area of overestimate of turns - long keeping of frequency of rotation of the engine in this range of a scale of the indicator is fraught with an exit of the power unit out of operation.

Speedometer

The speedometer occupies the central situation in a combination of devices and shows the current speed of movement of the car. In a speedometer indexes of a measuring instrument of the general and run of the car (odometer) and the counter of a distance in kilometers of a concrete trip are located. Zeroing of the last is made by a nazhimaniye on the dumping button.

Voltmeter

The voltmeter is located in the right bottom corner of a field of control indexes of a combination of devices. The range of indications of the strelochny indicator of the voltmeter lies in limits from 8 to 16 Century.
At start of the engine of the shooter of the index should not fall below value 10 In, during movement the minimum indication should not fall below value of 12 Century. In case of need address for consultation in Opel company service center.

Measuring instrument of pressure of oil

The Strelochny indicator of a measuring instrument is located in the right bottom corner of a field of control indexes of a combination of devices. The range of indications of the indicator lies in limits from 0 to 500 kPas (the 5th bar).
At heated-up to normal working temperature the engine the indication of a measuring instrument should not fall more than four times in relation to value, characteristic for the highest turns of the engine. Otherwise address for consultation in Opel company service center.
