Location and principle of functioning understeering to a pereklyuchata

1 — the Switch of parking fires
2 — Activation of screenwashes
3 — Single activation of screenwashes
4 — Activation of washers of a windshield
5 — Activation of a washer and cleaner of back glass (Legacy the Versatile person and Outback)
6 — the Right understeering switch (cleaners and washers of glasses)

7 — Adjustment of intensity of illumination of devices
8 — the Left understeering switch (external lighting and alarm devices)
9 — Activation of head headlights and running fires
10 — Activation of a driving beam, the alarm system headlights
11 — Activation of indexes of turns in the short-term mode
12 — Activation of indexes of turns in the standard mode (with shutdown on return of a steering wheel to rectilinear situation)


The switches located on a steering column

Assembly of understeering switches is located on a steering column of the car, directly under a steering wheel, from above on a column there is a push-button switch of parking fires.

The left combined understeering switch (external lighting and alarm devices)

Choice of the mode of functioning of external illuminants


The choice of the mode of functioning of external illuminants (dimensions, passing beam) is made by means of the rotary handle located on the end of the lever of the understeering switch. There is a possibility of a choice of one of three modes of external lighting:


OFF is switched off.
Marker lights - join lobbies and back marker lights, lamps of illumination of registration plate.
the passing beam - in additives to fires involved in the previous position of the handle is turned on a passing beam of head headlights.

On the models equipped with system of running fires of day time of day (DRL), head headlights automatically are transferred to the mode of a passing beam at ignition inclusion. Back marker lights are also automatically activated.

The majority of models is equipped with the alarm buzzer serving for the warning of the driver of need of shutdown of lighting before an exit from the car. The buzzer works in attempt of opening of a driver's door at the switched-off ignition (a key in the situation LOCK or ASS) in case the handle of a choice of the mode of external lighting is not transferred to the situation "Vykl" (OFF).

 Remember that excessively long functioning of external lighting at the killed engine is fraught with replanting of the battery!


Switching of the modes of functioning of head headlights (passing/driving beam)

A transfer of head headlights from the mode of a passing beam in the mode of a driving beam is made by push-up of the lever of the understeering switch from itself, - automatically on an instrument guard the corresponding control lamp of characteristic blue light has to light up (see the Section Arrangement of Working Elements). For shutdown of a driving beam return the lever to a starting position.

Also possibility of the alarm system is provided by a driving beam: the alarm system is carried out by procrastination of the lever of the understeering switch on itself and irrespective of the chosen position of the handle of a choice of the mode of functioning of external illuminants (see above).

 The alarm system a driving beam remains possible even at the switched-off ignition.


Indexes of turns

Activation of indexes of turns is made by push-up of the lever of the left understeering switch in the respective direction. The lever is transferred up or down, to dependences of the chosen direction of a change of course.

At transfer of the lever to extreme top/lower situation (before click) the corresponding indexes of turns will continue to function until the steering wheel is not returned in rectilinear situation (will work the terminal switch), or so far the lever will not be returned in neutral situation.

Short-term inclusion of indexes, for example, at intention to replace a lane of the movement is made by easy procrastination of the lever up or down.

Brightness control of illumination of devices

Brightness control of illumination of devices is carried out only in provisions and the rotary handle of a choice of the mode of functioning of external illuminants.

The ring regulator of intensity of illumination is located also on the lever of the left steering switch.


Switch of parking fires

Parking fires of the car function regardless of position of the switch of ignition.

Location of the keyboard switch of parking fires is shown on an illustration.


Along with parking fires also lamps of illumination of registration plate join.

 In order to avoid replanting of the battery, avoid long inclusion of parking fires.


The right combined understeering switch (cleaners and washers of a windshield)

Switch of cleaners and washers of a windshield

Activation of cleaners and washers of the wind is possible only at the included ignition (a key in the situation ON or ASS).

For management of cleaners/washers of glasses one of two types of switches is used.

Switch of the first type

The first type of the switch is used for management of screen wipers without possibility of adjustment of duration of pauses of the interval mode. In this case the lever of the understeering switch is not equipped with the rotary ring handle. The choice of the mode of functioning of cleaners is made by transfer of the lever to one of four possible provisions:

OFF is switched off
interval mode
LO low-speed mode
HI high-speed mode

Also possibility of single operation of cleaners is provided, - rather slightly to delay the lever of the understeering switch on itself. This function is especially useful at the movement in fog or under a drizzle.

Inclusion of washers of glass is made by means of the lever of the push-button switch which is built in an end face of the handle, - liquid will move on glass until the button of the switch remains pressed.

 Supply of the washing liquid is followed by several cycles of operation of screen wipers.

Switch of the second type

The switch of this type provides possibility of adjustment of duration of pauses of the interval mode. The mentioned adjustment is carried out by rotation of the ring switch which is built in the central part of the handle of the lever of the understeering switch. Inclusion of all functions is made also as well as on the switch of the first type.

Switch of a cleaner and washer of back glass (Legacy Versatile person and Outback)

Cleaner/washer of back glass are activated only at the included ignition (a key will turn in the situation ON or ASS).

Inclusion of a cleaner is made by rotation of the face handle of the lever of the right understeering switch. The cleaner has only one operating mode of functioning: interval which inclusion is made by the translation of the handle from the situation OFF in the situation ON by rotation clockwise.

For giving on back glass of the washing liquid at the working screen wiper it is necessary to turn the handle in extreme top situation (), - liquid will move on glass until the handle is not released.

Also possibility of giving on glass of the washing liquid without start of screen wipers is provided, - turn the lever handle counterclockwise, - liquid will move until the handle is not released.

Precautionary measures when using of cleaners and washers of glasses

Attempts of start of screen wipers at the brushes which froze slightly to glass are fraught with an electric motor exit out of operation as a result of an overheat, - previously glass should be cleared of ice/snow and to warm up by an obduv hot air (see Part D of the present Chapter).

Avoid activation of cleaners at a dry surface of glass, is it is fraught with emergence of scratches on glass, and also considerably reduces service life of rubber working elements of brushes.

It is not necessary to include a washer continuously more than for 20 seconds, also avoid inclusion of washers at the empty tank, is it is fraught with failure of a driving electric motor of the giving pump. Periodically check liquid level in the tank, in case of need make the corresponding adjustment (see the Head Routine maintenance).

In a cold season fill in only special frost-resistant structures in the tank of washers of glasses, - freezing of the washing liquid can lead to failure of the tank and tubes of the giving path.

Before use of washers in cold weather previously warm up glass, - frosting of glass can lead to dangerous deterioration of the review to the driver.

Regulator of an inclination of optical axes of head headlights

For adjustment of a distance of lighting (at inclusion of a passing beam) not to blind drivers of oncoming cars, it is possible to use the regulator of an inclination of optical axes of headlights.

The regulator has to be installed in the situation (according to table 1) corresponding to number of passengers and extent of loading of the car.
