Control system of speed (tempostat)

General information

The control system of speed (tempostat) is included in the standard package of some models, on others can be established in addition. The system allows to support automatically chosen cruiser speed of the movement of the car without impact on a gas pedal. Value of cruiser speed has to be not lower than 40 km/h. Application of a tempostat becomes especially convenient at the long movement on the low-loaded direct country highways. For the purpose of safety it is not recommended to include tempostat 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 opportunity completely to control the mode of the movement of the car.

 Misuse of a tempostat can be the reason of a road accident! Include a control system of speed only at the movement on free highways and under favorable weather conditions. Attention: During functioning of system there can be an automatic movement of a pedal of gas which thus should not be held a foot in order to avoid damage of basic and axial mechanisms!

The lever switch of management of functioning of a tempostat is located over a steering column on the right, assemblies of the right combined understeering switch are lower, inclusion/switching off of system is made by means of the equipped built-in control lamp of the button of the main switch of a tempostat and is followed by operation of the corresponding control lamp on the car dashboard.

Management of functioning of a tempostat

On the models equipped with AT it is necessary to translate previously the lever of the selector of transfers to the situation "D".

Include tempostat, having pressed the button of its main switch (see above) - the control lamp which is built in the switch has to light up.

Accelerate the car to the demanded cruiser speed which value should not be less than 40 km/h.

Wring out the switch lever in the direction of "COAST/SET " down, then release, - the movement speed gained by the car at the moment will be automatically supported now. For increase in the set speed it is necessary to wring out the switch lever in the direction of "ACC/RES " up (reduction of speed is reached by push-up of the lever down). Each push-up of the lever leads to change of value of the chosen speed on 1.6 km/h. Acceleration of the car when overtakings is made by squeezing of a pedal of gas after which otpuskaniye speed will automatically return to the chosen earlier cruiser value.

 When using a tempostat on the models equipped with RKPP do not transfer a transmission to neutral situation without squeezing of a pedal of coupling as it can lead to excessive increase of frequency of rotation of a cranked shaft!

Cancellation of the entered installation of cruiser speed of the movement of the car can be made by single procrastination of the lever of the switch of a tempostat in the direction of "CANCEL", squeezing of a pedal of a foot brake, or squeezing of a pedal of coupling (model with RKPP). At reduction in the rate of the movement of the car values of 40 km/h are lower, or the value more than 16 km/h below chosen also there will be an automatic dumping of installation of a tempostat.

For return of system to the value established earlier after dumping of installations of a tempostat as a result of braking or squeezing of coupling wring out the switch lever up ("ACC/RES). Told does not treat a case when dumping of installation resulted from falling of speed below value of 40 km/h.

Switching off of a tempostat is made by repeated pressing the button of the main switch, or turning of the ignition key in situation ACC or LOCK (after a full stop of the car).

Control of serviceability of a condition of system

If the control lamp of a tempostat starts blinking when using a control system of speed, switch off tempostat, then again include it by means of the button of the main switch. If at repeated inclusion of system the control lamp continues to function in the flashing mode, will join and at once will go out, or will not work at all, the car should be driven away on car repair shop for detailed diagnostics of a condition of a tempostat.
