Driving and auxiliary systems

Running in

The more carefully you will treat the engine at the beginning of its use, the more you will be satisfied with its work subsequently. The first 1500 km avoid big loading (the movement at completely open butterfly valve) and the high speed of the engine (no more than 2/3 maximum speeds of the movement on the chosen transfer).

In due time switch transfers!

By pressing a pedal of an accelerator it is desirable not to overcome a point of resistance (kik-Down).

You do not make switching to lower transfer by the selector lever for the purpose of braking.

Ranges of switching 3, 2 or 1 choose only at low speeds (on mountain passes).

After the first 1500 km the speed and speed it is possible gradually increase to extreme values.

System of a call of the help - TeleAid

(Telematic Alarm Identification on Demand - is applied in Germany).

The system of a call of the help allows signal transmission of a call of the help to one of control offices of ambulance within the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Signal transmission of a call of the help is made automatically after accident. At emergence of a dangerous situation you can activate system of a call of the help manually. At the same time all is given information, necessary for emergency assessment, as, for example, the data on location of the car (determined by the satellite GPS navigation system, and also sensors of a way of the ABS system) and concerning weight of accident.

For a short time after operation of system of a call of the help speech connection between control office of ambulance and passengers of the damaged car is automatically established. If someone from passengers is able to speak, he can transfer to the staff of control office of ambulance more detailed data on accident consequences. Phone is in the mode of loud-speaking communication.

The system of a call of the help is made available at:

· existence of the valid contract with the services (telephone service and service of reception of call signals of the help) offering the corresponding services.
· existence of the valid contract with the services offering the corresponding services (telephone service and service of reception of call signals about the help).
· existence of the valid phone card,
· access to the relevant radiotelephone network (access is possible only within Germany on the basis of D1 and D2 networks) providing transfer of short messages through service SMS (Short Message Service)
· possibilities of reception of signals of the satellite GPS navigation system,
· operational readiness of system of a call of the help.

 The first input of system of a call of the help in operation has to be made only at the Mercedes-Benz station.

When turning an electronic key in the ignition lock in situation 1 or 2 the system of a call of the help is in operational readiness.

The control light-emitting diode on the button of system of a call of the help lights up approximately for 5 seconds.

When turning an electronic key in the ignition lock in situation 0 or at taking out of a key the system of a call of the help is not in operational readiness any more.

Personal identification code of phone (PIN)

At measurement of a personal identification code of phone (PIN) (address the Operation manual on phone) on the display of phone the message of "Export PIN Speichern" is displayed (Enter the PIN code into memory).

Confirm the message, having pressed the OK button — on the display of phone the message of "Gespeichert" is quickly displayed (It is entered into memory).

The personal identification PIN code is entered into memory of the control unit of system of a call of the help.

If this process is not confirmed by pressing of the OK button, and is interrupted by team "C", on the display of phone the message "Nicht gesp quickly appears." (It is not written down in memory). The system of a call of the help in this case is not ready to work, the control light-emitting diode on the button of system of a call of the help constantly burns.

When using the phone card of D1 network and the turned-off function of inquiry of the PIN code nevertheless it is necessary to enter the PIN code into memory of the control unit of system of a call of the help.

If the control light-emitting diode on the button of system of a call of the help does not die away or lights up during the movement, then malfunction takes place.

If the control light-emitting diode dies away after a while, short-term malfunction of system took place.

 If the control light-emitting diode does not die away, it is possible that the system of a call of the help partially or completely is not efficient.

To address as soon as possible on the Mercedes-Benz station for check of system of a call of the help.

Signal transmission of a call of the help

Manually:

Slightly press a cover-1-— the cover opens.

Slightly press the button systems of a call of the help-2-.

The control light-emitting diode on the button of system of a call of the help-2-blinks.

Receipt of a call signal of the help for further transfer to control office of ambulance is confirmed by the message through loud-speaking installation. To wait for speech communication with control office of ambulance.

After the termination of a call of the help close a cover-1-.

Automatically:

· at operation of a safety cushion;
· at strong blow on the car behind;
· when capsizing the car.

The control light-emitting diode on the button of system of a call of the help-2-blinks.

Receipt of a call signal of the help for further transfer to control office of ambulance is confirmed by the message through loud-speaking installation. To wait for speech communication with control office of ambulance.

 The control light-emitting diode blinks until the help call terminates.

After signal transmission of a call of the help phone in several seconds switches to the mode of loud-speaking communication before the end of exchange of information between control office of ambulance and the passenger of the car.

At this time it is impossible to carry on another stories by phone.

At the lowered tension (for example, at the discharged rechargeable battery) signal transmission of a call of the help through system of a call of the help is impossible.

After signal transmission of a call of the help:

If the control light-emitting diode on the button of system of a call of the help constantly burns, and speech connection was not established before, signal transmission of a call of the help was not successful (for example, there is no radiotelephone network).

In that case saving actions need to be organized by own forces.

 The system of a call of the help is public. Any abuse of the button of system of a call of the help therefore is punishable.

Electronic lock of ignition

There is a danger of accident!

Take out an electronic key from the ignition lock even at a short-term exit from the car.

Electric adjustment of provision of a seat is also possible at one open door. Therefore do not leave children in the car unguarded.

Models with the KEYLESS-GO system:

Consider notes on simultaneous use of an electronic key and smart card.

0 The electronic key can be taken out only in situation 0 in case the lever of the AT selector is in situation "P".

For mechanical blocking of the car the lever of the AT selector is blocked in situation "P" at position 0 or 1 of the lock of ignition and after taking out of an electronic key.

 At insertion of the main electronic key in the ignition lock the mechanical key should not be pushed forward. It can lead to damage of the lock of ignition. (A mechanical key — address the Section Locks, keys and locks. Smart card. Uniform lock).


Do not seal up a window for infrared beams on the end of an electronic key and do not allow its pollution, otherwise operability of the electronic lock of ignition cannot be guaranteed.

If the electronic key a long time remained in the ignition lock in situation 0, then its turning is not possible any more. For ensuring turning take out and again insert it.

If the electronic key in the lock of ignition does not give in to turning, the lever of the AT selector remains blocked in situation "P". The considerable discharge of the rechargeable battery of the car can be the cause. (Charging of the rechargeable battery is the Head Routine maintenance, or Start of the engine from the auxiliary power supply).

Then again insert an electronic key into the lock of ignition and turn it. If the lock of ignition is in situation 2, the lever of the selector gives in to movement and remains free.

At the long parking of the car it is necessary to take out an electronic key in order to avoid a discharge of the rechargeable battery.

Emergency start of the engine towage is impossible.

Switching off

At a car stop transfer the lever of the AT selector to situation "P" or "N".

Press the start/switching off button on the lever of the selector until the engine is switched off. At the closed door of the driver switching of electric equipment of the car in position of the radio receiver (corresponds to the provision of 1 electronic key in the ignition lock) is made, and at opened — in zero situation (corresponds to situation "The Electronic Key Is Taken Out from the Ignition Lock").

If after switching off of the engine the lever of the selector was not transferred to situation "P", when opening a door of the driver the signal is distributed, and on the multiinformation display indication of "SELECT LEVER IN P" joins (to TRANSFER the LEVER of the SELECTOR TO SITUATION "P").

Transfer the AT selector lever to situation "P".

Automatic transmission

Separate transfers join automatically depending on:

· provisions of the lever of the AT selector with ranges of switching of 4, 3, 2 and 1
· the chosen program of switching (W/S)
· provisions of a pedal of an accelerator
· speeds of the movement.

The gear shifting mechanism automatically adapts to individual style of driving of the driver by the shift of points of gear shifting.

Shift of points of gear shifting represents the continuous process which is constantly considering an instant operational condition and a condition of the movement, and also desire of the driver.

Automatic transmission reacts to the changed service conditions adapted by the program of gear shifting.

Switching of the lever of the AT selector is possible in situation 2 locks of ignition. For movement of the lever of the AT selector it is necessary to squeeze out a working brake of situation "P" in addition.

Start-off from the place

Press a working brake for release of the lever of the AT selector. Release the parking brake.

Switch the AT selector lever during the operation of the engine idling to one of provisions of the movement. Wait for full inclusion of transfer, in particular at the cold engine. It is confirmed by easy breakthrough.

Release a working brake and press an accelerator pedal.

Switchings to higher transfer after start of the cold engine

After start of the cold engine gear shifting is made at higher speed of the engine, than switching at a working temperature.

Thus, the catalyst reaches the working temperature earlier.

Provision of a pedal of an accelerator

Easy pressing an accelerator pedal = earlier switching to higher transfer.

Kik-Down — pressing of a pedal of an accelerator with overcoming a point of resistance the maximum acceleration, the return switching to the lowest possible transfer.

At achievement of desirable speed release an accelerator pedal — again there is a switching to higher transfer.

Car stop

Leave the selector lever in position of the movement "D" or "R" and by means of the working or parking brake insure the car from advance, and on rise — from an otkatyvaniye back.

Maneuvering

When maneuvering in limited space regulate the speed of the movement by the dosed otpuskaniye of a working brake. Press an accelerator pedal only slightly, do not play it.

Parkovaniye

There is a danger of traumatizing!

At work on the car at the working engine press a pedal of the parking brake and transfer the AT selector lever to situation "P".

· Press a pedal of the parking brake.
· Transfer the AT selector lever to situation "P".
· On steep slopes or descents turn forward wheels to an onboard stone of the sidewalk, you watch to damaging the tire.

Provisions of the lever of the AT selector

P Locking at the parking

Additional protection of the car at a parkovaniye. Include only after a full stop of the car.

The electronic key can be taken out only in position "P" of the lever of the AT selector.


At the taken-out electronic key the lever of the AT selector is blocked in situation "P".

R Transfer of a backing

Include only after a full stop of the car.

N Neutral situation

There is no torque transmission from the engine to driving wheels. At the released brakes the car can freely move (pushing, towage).

During the movement do not switch to situation "N", it can lead to damage of transmission.

At the turned-off or faulty function of the EPS system:

Only at threat of a drift of the car switching in situation "N" is allowed (for example, in the winter on the slippery road).

D on hand all 5 transfers of the forward course the Mode is provided for all normal traffic conditions forward.

Switching ranges for special service conditions

In position "D" of the lever of the AT selector switching ranges for special service conditions are chosen easy pressing or pressing of the lever of the selector to the left or to the right.

The included range of switching is displayed on the control panel.

Slightly press the selector lever in the direction —:

Switching every time on one range in the sequence of D, 4, 3, 2, 1 is made.

Press the lever of the selector in the direction — and hold it pressed:

Range of switching changes on the transfer included at present AT. If the movement happens already on the highest possible transfer of urgent included switching range, switching is made only on the following lower range of switching.

If movement of the lever of the selector in the direction — is made at too high speed, switching to lower transfer is not made. Thus excess of admissible speed of the engine is prevented.


Slightly press the selector lever in the direction +:

Switching from the range of switching to the following higher range of switching included at present is made.

Press the lever of the selector in the direction + and hold it pressed:

Switching from the switching range included at present directly in situation "D" is made.

If transmission is in the range of switching of "D", it is possible to make switching to higher transfer to one step, having slightly pressed the selector lever in the direction +.

There is a danger of a drift!

At the slippery road do not switch to lower transfer for the purpose of braking. Tires of driving wheels can lose coupling with the road.

Switching ranges:

4 Switching only before the 4th transfer.
3 Switching only before the 3rd transfer.

In this situation it is possible to use the braking operation of the engine.

2 Switching only before the 2nd transfer.

The mode is provided for the movement on abrupt passes, in mountains, under trying conditions operation, and also as brake situation on especially abrupt descents.

1 1st transfer.

Switch of programs

Pressing of the switch "W/S"-1-makes switching between the W and S programs.

The chosen program is displayed on the control panel.

"S" Standard mode

The mode is provided for all normal traffic conditions.

"W" Winter mode

Start-off from the place forward and happens on the 2nd transfer back.

Switching to higher and lower transfer is made by strong pressing of a pedal of an accelerator at lower speeds of the movement and lower speed of the engine, than in the S program.

At the provision "kik-Down" of a pedal of an accelerator switching to higher and lower transfer is made as in the S program.

Emergency operation

If during the movement transmission does not give in to switching any more and keeps also under the changed service conditions the included transfer, transmission is in emergency operation.

For a possibility of the further movement the 2nd transfer or the 2nd transfer of a backing can be included. Sequence of actions at the same time following:

Stop the car.

Transfer the AT selector lever to situation "P".

Turn an electronic key in the lock of ignition in situation 0.

Wait not to exchange of 10 seconds.

Start the engine.

Transfer the lever of the AT selector to situation "D":

the 2nd transfer is included.

Transfer the lever of the AT selector to situation "R":

To address immediately on the Mercedes-Benz station for check of transmission.

Parking brake

There is a danger of accident!

Do not leave children in the car unguarded. They can release the parking brake.

Raising of the parking brake: strongly press a pedal of the parking brake. The parking brake is tightened.

On the control panel at the tightened parking brake the control lamp of the brake system lights up.

Otpuskaniye: pull the handle on yourself. The parking brake is released instantly — the car can start at once.

The control lamp of the brake system on the control panel dies away at the working engine.

At start-off from the place with the tightened parking brake the warning sound signal is distributed — release the parking brake.

If the control lamp of the brake system continues to burn at the released parking brake and at the working engine — address the section "Control Lamp of the Brake System" (The section Precautionary and control lamps, and also messages of the multiinformation display on the registered malfunctions).

Recommendations about driving

Pedals of management

There is a danger of accident!

Do not limit freedom of management of pedals at all. In space for legs of the driver there should be no objects. When using rugs for legs or carpets it is necessary to provide a sufficient empty seat and their reliable fixing.

Movement and parkovaniye

Fire danger!

During the movement or at a parkovaniye you watch that elements of system of release of OG did not adjoin to flammable material.

Warming up of the engine up to the working temperature

After start-off from the place quickly warm up the engine up to the working temperature. Only after that it is possible to bring its loading to full capacity.

Start-off from the place

Start-off from the place on slippery soil:

Surely avoid long scrolling of one of driving wheels. It can lead to damage of transmission.

Steering

There is a danger of accident!

At the idle engine the hydraulic booster of steering does not operate. At the same time for management it is required the bigger effort is considerable.

Brakes

There is a danger of accident!

The hydraulic booster of a working brake works only at the switched-on engine. It is necessary to consider what at the idle engine for braking is required it is considerable bigger effort.

On long and abrupt descents it is recommended to unload brakes switching of transmission to lower transfer — include ranges of switching 3, 2 or 1.

Thus the overheat of brakes is prevented and wear of brake slips decreases.

After the raised load of brakes it is recommended to put the car on the parking not at once, and at first some time to continue the movement quicker to cool brakes with a counter flow of air.

If you long time moved to a heavy rain without braking, can happen that at the first braking there will be some delay, and you should press a brake with a bigger force. Therefore observe big, than usually, a distance to the cars moving ahead of you.

In order to avoid corrosion on brake disks before putting the car on the parking after movement along the wet road, especially if it was strewed with the defreezing means, strongly press a brake to dry brake disks by heating.

Working brake

At rather low operational loads of the brake system it is necessary to be convinced of its efficiency by short strong braking at higher speed from time to time. Thereby improvement of coupling of brake slips is reached.

Watch that as a result of braking other participants of the movement were not endangered!

If the control lamp of the brake system at the released parking brake lights up — address the Section Precautionary and control lamps, and also messages of the multiinformation display on the registered malfunctions.

Establish only the brake slips allowed by us to operation!

Installation of the brake slips which are not allowed by us can have an adverse effect on process of braking of the car, considerably reducing safety.

Shutdown of supply of fuel in the mode of compulsory idling

In the mode of compulsory idling supply of fuel is interrupted if the pedal of an accelerator is completely released.

Violations of operation of the engine

During the unstable operation of the engine (for example, in case of admissions of ignition) not burned down fuel can get to the catalyst and cause in it thermal damages.

In case of admissions of ignition, only short-term operation of the engine at small loading is allowed (on small turns).

Malfunction should be eliminated immediately at the Mercedes-Benz station.

Hydroplaning

Depending on water level on the road, despite the sufficient height of the drawing of a protector of tires and low speed of the movement, there can be an effect of hydroplaning. At a rain it is necessary to brake carefully and to avoid the movement in a track.

Coupling of tires with the road

While on the dry road the car at a certain speed completely gives in to management, at movement along the wet or ice-covered road the speed of the movement needs to be reduced respectively to reach the same degree of traffic safety.

Already at temperatures close to a freezing point, it is necessary to watch closely a condition of a paving especially.

If on the road ice was formed (for example, owing to fog), when braking on ice the thin water film considerably reducing coefficient of coupling of tires with the road is quickly formed. At such weather observe extra care.

During the winter period it is recommended to use tires of M type + S (with a protector for movement along dirty and snow-covered roads). At ice and on slippery snow they can reduce a brake way in comparison with tires with the summer drawing of a protector.

Tires

There is a danger of accident!

Surely observe the ordered air pressure in tires.

It is especially important concerning the tires operated in the extreme modes, for example, at a high speed, full load and at high temperatures of external air.

Do not allow strong wear of tires. With a height of the drawing of a protector less than 3 mm the coefficient of coupling of tires with the wet road sharply decreases.

The coefficient of coupling of tires with the road considerably changes depending on weather or a condition of a paving.

Trips abroad

The extensive network of Mercedes-Benz stations is available and abroad. The corresponding lists of Mercedes-Benz stations it is possible to request at any Mercedes-Benz station.

In some countries only low-octane grades of fuel are on sale.

In the countries with the order of the movement different from an order of the movement in the country of the admission of the car to operation, it is necessary to switch headlights to symmetric passing beam or to partially stick their (Section Replacement of Glow Lamps).

Thus dazzle of oncoming cars decreases.

Operation during the winter period

Before approach of winter it is recommended to address on the Mercedes-Benz station for the purpose of preparation of the car for operation during the winter period.

Replace motive oil: if the oil which is not allowed to application for operation during the winter period is filled.

Check concentration of antifreeze with anticorrosive additives.

Windscreen washer and faroochistitel:

Add a concentrate of stekloomyvayushchy means of MB to water (address Specifications of the Head Routine maintenance).

Control of the rechargeable battery:

At decrease in temperature the capacity of the rechargeable battery falls. Only well charged rechargeable battery provides reliable start of the engine and at low temperatures.

Tires:

We recommend to apply on all wheels of the tire M + S in the winter (with a protector to movement along dirty and snow-covered roads). At the same time it is necessary to observe the maximum speed of the movement for tires M + S, and also the maximum speed ordered by the legislation!

At operation of the car during the winter period the maximum effect of the electronic traction control system (ESP) is reached only at use of tires M + S and, if necessary, antisliding chains.

Recommendations about driving in ice

The most important rule at the movement in ice:

Move carefully, avoid sharp acceleration, braking and maneuvering at management.

At threat of a drift of the car or in case at a low speed of the movement the car cannot be stopped, transfer the selector lever automatic transmission to situation "N".

By means of a wheel try to keep the car under control.

At the movement on deep snow we recommend to raise a road gleam of the car (subsection "Regulation of a Road Gleam").

The defreezing means applied on roads can exert negative impact on brake action. Therefore for achievement of habitual brake action the bigger effort can be required.

In this regard we recommend at long movement along the roads covered with the defreezing means to press repeatedly a brake pedal. The brake action reduced by the defreezing means can be again normalized by it.

Watch that as a result of braking not to endanger other participants of the movement!

If after movement along the roads strewed with the defreezing means the car was put on the parking, then before continuation of a trip it is necessary to check, whenever possible, at once brake action, observing due care. At noticeable decrease in efficiency of braking it is possible to restore it by means of repeated pressing a brake pedal.

Antisliding chains

Apply only the antisliding chains tested and allowed by us.

Any Mercedes-Benz station on this matter will give the reference.

Models with tires 245/45 R18

For simplification of installation of chains of antisliding it is recommended to increase a road gleam of the car (lower in this Section).

Installation of chains of antisliding is allowed only on certain combinations of wheels and tires. (More detailed instructions are provided in Specifications).

Impose antisliding chains only on back wheels (the leading bridge). Observe the instruction of the manufacturer for installation.

The maximum speed of the movement (50 km/h) is allowed only on snow.

On not snow-covered road of a chain of antisliding it is necessary to remove whenever possible at once. (Recommendations about driving in ice are given above).

At application of chains of antisliding function of the ESP traction control system can be turned off (see below).

Towage of the trailer

There is a danger of traumatizing and accident!

At a hitch and uncoupling of the trailer observe the maximum care and care.

When giving the car back between the car and the trailer there should not be people!

Trailers with the inertial brake system should not be disconnected in a condition of a setup.

Owing to the wrong connection of the trailer on the car tractor there is a danger of a lead of the trailer.

Do not exceed the maximum basic load, the allowed mass of the towed freight and the allowed load of the back bridge of the car.

It is necessary to observe strictly the instruction for installation of the traction coupling device with a removable spherical head.

At operation with the trailer it is necessary to consider that dynamic properties at the same time considerably differ from dynamic properties of the car without trailer.

The structure with the trailer is heavier, has limited ability to dispersal and overcoming rises and longer brake way. He reacts to rushes of a side wind, etc. more sensitively and demands more careful driving.

Fuel consumption at operation of the car with the trailer naturally increases.

When loading the trailer you watch that the full standard mass of the trailer and the allowed mass of the freight towed by the car together with the traction coupling device (Specification) were not exceeded.

The allowed values are specified in passports of the car and on name plates of the traction coupling device and trailer.

The lowest value is valid.

Besides, the permissible load of a dyshl of the trailer on a spherical head of the traction coupling device should not be exceeded.

The maximum basic load is specified in Specifications or on the pasted plate. It should not exceed the value specified on name plates of the traction coupling device and trailer.

We recommend to use the maximum basic load on дышло the trailer not less, however, 50 kg.

According to basic loading it is necessary to reduce the mass of freight in the car in order to avoid excess of the allowed load of the back bridge.

It is recommended not to exceed the maximum speed of 80 km/h, including and in the countries in which higher speed is allowed.

It is necessary to avoid, whenever possible, sharp braking and at first slightly to brake for the purpose of a trailer nakatyvaniye on the tractor. Then smoothly increase brake effort.

If the trailer begins to wag, it is necessary to reduce the speed of the movement, not to turn a wheel against a drift, and in case of need, slow down. Do not try "to extend" structure increase in speed of the movement at all.

The values of ability of overcoming rise given in Specifications at start-off from the place belong to sea level. At the movement in mountains it is necessary to remember that with increase in height the engine capacity and, therefore, ability of overcoming rise at start-off from the place decreases.

Trailers with the inertial brake system should not be disconnected in a condition of a setup. Owing to reverse motion of the inertial brake system damage of a bumper is possible.

Tempostat

Tempostat allows you unfatiguing management as he automatically keeps the set speed by active pressing and an otpuskaniye of a pedal of an accelerator.

Can be chosen and activated by the lever of the switch of a tempostat on a column of steering темпостат or the variable limiter of speed.

Indication of the chosen system, a tempostat or the variable limiter of speed, is made by the LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat:

· Tempostat:

the LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat does not burn.

· Variable limiter of speed: the LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat burns — address the subsection "Variable Limiter of Speed".

There is a danger of accident!

Responsibility for the speed of the movement is always born by the driver. Tempostat is only supportive application for the driver.

1 — slightly press record in memory of speed of the movement the lever of the switch of a tempostat.

Acceleration — hold the lever of the switch of a tempostat pressed.

Exact installation by steps to 1 km/h — quickly press the lever of the switch of a tempostat.

2 — slightly press record in memory of speed of the movement the lever of the switch of a tempostat.

Reduction in the rate of the movement — hold the lever of the switch pressed.

Exact installation by steps to 1 km/h — quickly press the switch lever.

3 Switching off — slightly press the switch lever.

Limited speed remains written down in memory.

4 A call of the speed entered into memory — slightly press the lever of the switch of a tempostat.

5 Switching between the variable limiter of speed and tempostaty — press the switch lever.

Tempostat is chosen if the LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat is switched off.

The variable limiter of speed is chosen if the LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat burns.

There is a danger of accident!

Function of a tempostat does not adapt automatically to road conditions owing to what it is impossible to use темпостат, for example, at ice.

Record in memory of any speed over 40 km/h is possible:

Switching from the variable limiter of speed on темпостат. The LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat has to be switched off. If necessary press the lever of the switch of a tempostat in the direction-5-.

Gain the desirable speed of the movement, having pressed an accelerator pedal.

Slightly press the lever of the switch of a tempostat in the direction-1-or-2-. Speed is written down in memory.

The speed entered into memory is displayed on the multiinformation display, and on a speedometer segments from the speed entered into memory to the maximum speed of the movement light up.

Release an accelerator pedal.

At increase in speed of the movement of the car pressing of the lever of the switch of a tempostat in the direction-1-or reduction of speed in the direction-2 after an otpuskaniye of the lever of the switch of a tempostat speed is written down in memory.

Exact installation by steps to 1 km/h:

Increase in speed — slightly press the lever of the switch of a tempostat in the direction-1-.

Reduction of speed — slightly press the lever of the switch of a tempostat in the direction-2-.

Call of the entered speed from memory:

Since the speed of the movement about 40 km/h the call of the entered speed from memory is possible.

Slightly press the switch lever in the direction-4-.

The speed entered into memory is displayed on the multiinformation display, and on a speedometer segments from the speed entered into memory to the maximum speed light up.

Choose the remembered speed of the movement only if the driver well remembers it and it is intended to be caused from memory again.

When turning an electronic key in the ignition lock in situation 1 or 0 the remembered speed is dumped.

Switching off:

Quickly press the lever of the switch of a tempostat in the direction-3-or-5-, speed remains in memory.

By pressing in the direction-5-the LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat lights up — the variable limiter of speed is chosen.

Tempostat is also switched off when pressing a brake pedal.

If segments on a speedometer begin to blink, темпостат is switched off, for example, if the AT selector lever during the movement switches in situation "N" or at hydroplaning.

On rises or descents темпостат reduces a deviation from the speed of the movement chosen by the driver by switching of the transmission to lower transfer. Despite it, it is possible that the set speed will not manage to be kept.

After overcoming such site the remembered speed automatically is established and transmission comes back to former situation.

If the speed of the movement of the car decreases pressing of the lever of the switch of a tempostat in the direction-2-, then at insufficient reduction of speed switching of transmission to the 4th or 3rd transfer is made.

For short-term increase in speed of the movement (e.g., for overtaking) — press an accelerator pedal. If the pedal of an accelerator is again released, the remembered speed is established again.

Use темпостат only if road conditions allow the uniform speed of the movement.

On the multiinformation display indication "CRUISE CONTROL - - -" joins (TEMPOSTAT---) in attempt to enter speed below 40 km/h into memory or by a call from memory of not written down speed — темпостат remains included.

At malfunction of a tempostat — address the Section Precautionary and control lamps, and also messages of the multiinformation display on the registered malfunctions.

System of maintenance of a safe distance of "Distronic" (DTR)

If ahead of the going car is not present, the Distronic system (DTR) functions as usual темпостат. It allows you unfatiguing management as it automatically keeps the set speed.

If the sensor of a distance identifies the car which is ahead at slower speed, then the speed of your car decreases and the movement for ahead the going car continues with observance of the set distance.

By the lever of the switch of a tempostat on a column of steering the Distronic (DTR) system or the variable limiter of the speed (Speedtronic system) can be chosen and activated.

Indication of the chosen system, the Distronic system or the variable limiter of speed, is made by the LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat:

Distronic system:

The LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat does not burn.

Variable limiter of speed: the LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat burns (address the section the Variable limiter of speed).

There is a danger of accident!

Responsibility for the speed of the movement and for observance of a necessary distance to ahead the going car is always born by the driver. The Distronic system is only supportive application.

1 — slightly press record in memory of speed of the movement the lever of the switch of a tempostat.

Increase in the chosen speed of the movement to the following ten km/h — quickly press the lever of the switch of a tempostat or hold it pressed.

2 — slightly press record in memory of speed of the movement the lever of the switch of a tempostat.

Decrease in the chosen speed of the movement to the following of ten 10 km/h — quickly press the lever of the switch of a tempostat or hold it pressed.

5 Switching between the variable limiter of speed and the Distronic system — press the switch lever.

The Distronic system is chosen if the LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat is switched off.

The variable limiter of speed is chosen if the LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat burns. (The variable limiter of speed is described below).

Inclusion

There is a danger of accident!

Function of the Distronic system does not adapt automatically to road conditions owing to what it is impossible to use the Distronic system, for example, at ice.

Record in memory of any speed of the movement approximately from 40 km/h to 160 km/h is possible:

Switching from the variable limiter of speed to the Distronic system.

The LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat has to be switched off. If necessary press the lever of the switch of a tempostat in the direction-5-.

Gain the desirable speed of the movement, having pressed an accelerator pedal.

Slightly press the lever of the switch of a tempostat in the direction-1-or-2-. Speed is written down in memory.

The speed entered into memory is displayed on the multiinformation display, and on a speedometer one light up or two segments in the range of the speed which is written down in memory.

Release an accelerator pedal.

If the lever of the switch of a tempostat keeps pressed in the direction-1-or-2-, the speed of the movement raises or decreases steps on 10 km/h until the lever of the switch of a tempostat is not released.

Exact regulation by steps on 1 km/h:

Increase in the chosen speed — slightly press the lever of the switch of a tempostat in the direction-4-.

If the lever of the switch of a tempostat keeps pressed in the direction-4-, the speed of the movement increases steps on 1 km/h until the lever of the switch of a tempostat is not released.

Call of the entered speed from memory:

Since the speed of the movement about 40 km/h to about 160 km/h the call of the entered speed from memory is possible.

Slightly press the switch lever in the direction-4-.

The speed entered into memory is displayed on the multiinformation display, and on a speedometer one light up or two segments in the range of the written-down speed.

Choose the remembered speed of the movement only if the driver well remembers it and it is intended to be caused from memory again.

When turning an electronic key in the ignition lock in situation 1 or 0 the remembered speed is dumped.

If the electronic traction control system (ESP) is switched off, inclusion of the Distronic system (DTR) is impossible.

At inclusion of function of the ESP traction control system the Distronic system is switched off — the yellow precautionary alarm lamp on a speedometer lights up. In addition the sound signal is distributed.

Invalid attempts of inclusion:

In invalid attempt of inclusion on the multiinformation display indication "-" appears.

Invalid attempts of inclusion, for example, are:

· Inclusion outside the range of speed from about 40 to 160 km/h.
· Inclusion at position of the lever of the selector of automatic transmission "Р", "R" or "N".
· Inclusion in time of braking of the car by the driver.
· Inclusion by short pressing of the lever of the switch of a tempostat in the direction-4-though the speed of the movement is not entered into memory.

At malfunction or defect of the Distronic system be guided by the subsection Distronic System (DTR) of the Section Precautionary and control lamps, and also messages of the multiinformation display on the registered malfunctions.

Switching off

Quickly press the lever of the switch of a tempostat in the direction-3-or-5-, speed remains in memory.

By pressing in the direction-5-the LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat lights up — the variable limiter of speed is chosen.

The Distronic system is switched off also:

· when pressing a brake pedal;
· at reduction in the rate of the movement of the car 40 km/h because of ahead are lower than the going car;
· when switching the lever of the AT selector in situation "N";
· at inclusion of function of the electronic ESP traction control system;
· at acceleration of the car to the speed of the movement it is higher than 160 km.

Driving

When turning an electronic key in the ignition lock in situation 2 on a speedometer the precautionary alarm lamp of the Distronic system lights up. It dies away at the working engine.

The Distronic system is switched off:

Measurement of a distance to ahead the going car, continues even if the Distronic system is switched off.

There is a danger of accident!

If the precautionary alarm lamp of the Distronic system on a speedometer lights up during the movement, so the distance to ahead the going car is too small. In addition the double sound signal is distributed if there is a danger of collision.

It is necessary to increase a distance to ahead the going car.

Non-compliance with a distance to ahead the going car increases risk of accident.

The Distronic system is included:

If the sensor of a distance identifies ahead the car moving at lower speed, then the speed of your car decreases and the movement continues with observance of the set distance to ahead the going car.

On a speedometer segments from speed ahead of the going car to the speed of the movement chosen by the driver light up.

There is a danger of traumatizing!

The Distronic system makes automatic snubbing for achievement of the set distance to ahead the going car or preservation of speed of the movement. The brake pedal at the same time is attracted.

The leg should not be on a brake pedal — there is a danger of pinching of a leg.

At suddenly arisen, more slowly a moving obstacle (for example, when changing a strip ahead by the going car) the Distronic system makes delay to 2 m / с2 that corresponds to about 20% of the greatest possible delay of the car.

There is a danger of accident!

If the precautionary alarm lamp of the Distronic system on a speedometer lights up during the movement and the double sound signal is distributed, then stronger delay is necessary.

For reduction of speed of the car in addition use a working brake.

On rises or descents the Distronic system reduces a deviation from the speed of the movement chosen by the driver by braking and switching of transmission to lower transfer. After overcoming such site transmission comes back to former situation.

For short-term increase in speed of the movement (e.g., for overtaking) — press an accelerator pedal. If the pedal of an accelerator is again released, the remembered speed is established again.

If owing to regulation of a distance to ahead the going car the Distronic system the speed of the movement decreases lower than 40 km/h, or at a speed of movement higher than 160 km/h the Distronic system is switched off. In addition the sound signal is distributed.

Recommendations about driving by means of the Distronic system

There is a danger of accident!

Without having identified before itself an obstacle (for example, the car moving ahead) the Distronic system makes adjustment before achievement of the speed chosen by the driver. Thereof:

At evolution from the left strip in right your car will continue to overtake the cars moving on the left strip on the right
on the strip conducting to a congress with the highway, your car will continue acceleration to the speed chosen by the driver.

Below the description of some situations of the movement exerting impact on functioning of the Distronic system is given.

The system is provided first of all for application on highways or federal highways equated to them. Use of system in the cities is not recommended.


At the movement on turns, when calling on turn or an exit from it the identification of the cars moving ahead can be complicated.

The movement displaced in relation to the ahead car can complicate its identification.

Cars which are reconstructed at a small distance on your strip can be identified only after full change of a strip.

1 The switch — for switching off of a warning sound signal of a distance to ahead the going car
2 The regulator of the set distance

If the Distronic system is not included, the sound signal can be switched off by means of the switch-1-.

Switching off of a sound signal:

Press the switch-1-above a symbol. The control light-emitting diode on the switch lights up.

Inclusion of a sound signal:

Press the switch below-1-. The control light-emitting diode on the switch dies away.

Installation of the set distance to the car moving ahead:

Turn the regulator-2-in the direction of MIN or MOVE.

Range of installation of an interval on time makes from 1.0 to 2.0 seconds.

Installation of an interval on time, for example, in 1.8 seconds, corresponds to a distance of a half of speed of the movement in meters.

Indication on the multiinformation display

1 The Distronic system is switched off. Are displayed the valid distance-5-and the set distance-6-to the car-4-moving ahead
2 The Distronic system joins, approximately for 3 seconds indication of the established speed of the movement appears
3 The Distronic system is included.
4 The car moving ahead. Appears only if the car moving ahead was identified.
5 The valid distance to the car moving ahead
6 The set distance to the car moving ahead
7 Your car

Call of indication of the Distronic system:

Press the button on a multipurpose steering wheel several times in a row until indication appears (1 or 3).

Speedtronic system

Consists of variable and constant limiters of speed.

The variable limiter of speed helps you not to exceed due to regulation of speed of the engine the set speed, for example, at restrictions of speed.

By means of the constant limiter of speed you can limit the maximum speed at operation of the car with tires with the winter drawing of a protector.

By the lever of the switch of a tempostat on a column of steering the Distronic system (DTR) or the variable limiter of speed can be chosen and activated темпостат.

Indication of the chosen system, a tempostata, the Distronic systems (DTR) or the variable limiter of speed, is made by the LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat:

Variable limiter of speed: the LIM indicator on the lever of the switch burns.

Tempostat or Distronic system (DTR): the LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat does not burn. (Tempostat and the Distronic system are considered above in this Section).

There is a danger of accident!

Responsibility for the speed of the movement is always born by the driver. The Speedtronic system is only supportive application for the driver.

Variable limiter of speed

1 Activation of the variable limiter of speed — slightly press the lever of the switch of a tempostat.

Increase in limited speed — hold the lever of the switch of a tempostat pressed.

2 Activation of the variable limiter of speed — slightly press the lever of the switch of a tempostat.

Decrease in limited speed — hold the lever of the switch of a tempostat pressed.

3 Switching off of the variable limiter of speed — slightly press the lever of the switch of a tempostat.

The set restriction of speed remains in memory.

4 A call of limited speed from memory — slightly press the lever of the switch of a tempostat.

Exact regulation, increase in limited speed steps on 1 km/h — quickly press the lever of the switch of a tempostat.

5 Switching between tempostaty and the variable limiter of speed — press the lever of the switch of a tempostat.

The variable limiter of speed is chosen if the LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat burns.

Tempostat or the Distronic system (DTR) is chosen if the LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat does not burn. (Tempostat and the Distronic system are considered above in this Section).

There is a danger of accident!

If the variable limiter of speed is activated, on a speedometer segments from the beginning of a scale before the set restriction of speed shine:

The established speed can be exceeded in this case only at a provision of a pedal of an accelerator kik-Down.

Switching off of the limiter of speed:

Quickly press the switch lever in the direction-3-or-5-.

On a speedometer all segments shine.

By pressing in the direction-5-also the LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat dies away.

The limiter of speed is deactivated as well in case in the provision of a pedal of an accelerator kik-Down the speed of the movement differs from in advance established speed no more, than on 20 km/h.

Use the speed limiter only if need of sudden acceleration to the speed exceeding in advance established is not expected.

When changing the driver follows from safety reasons surely inform him on the established speed.

Unlike a tempostat or the Distronic system the variable limiter of speed is not switched off by pressing of a brake pedal.

There is a danger of traumatizing!

Models with the Distronic system:

The Distronic system makes automatic snubbing for prevention of excess of the set restriction of speed. The brake pedal at the same time is attracted.

The leg should not be under a brake pedal — there is a danger of pinching of a leg.

Switching/activation

Start the engine.

At the working engine restriction of any speed over 30 km/h at cars with the Distronic system is possible.

Switching from a tempostat or the Distronic system on the variable limiter of speed.

The LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat has to burn. If necessary press the lever of the switch of a tempostat in the direction-5-.

Slightly press the switch lever in the direction (1, 2 or 4).

The variable limiter of speed is activated.

The established limited speed is displayed on the multiinformation display, and on a speedometer segments from the beginning of a scale before the set restriction of speed light up.

Direction-1-:

Urgent speed of the movement is remembered as new restriction of speed; at the same time the curve to the following higher ten is made. Further easy pressing or a continence of the lever makes increase in the established limited speed.

Direction-2-:

Urgent speed of the movement is remembered as new restriction of speed; at the same time the curve to the following lower ten is made. Further easy pressing or a continence of the lever makes decrease in the established limited speed.

Direction-4-:

The remembered last restriction of speed is activated if the speed of the movement exceeds the remembered restriction of speed no more, than on 30 km/h.

Further easy pressing or continence of the lever makes increase in the set restriction of speed with steps on 1 km/h.

Deactivation

Slightly press the switch lever in the direction-3-or press in the direction-5-.

On a speedometer all segments shine.

By pressing in the direction-5 the LIM indicator on the lever of the switch of a tempostat dies away.

The limiter of speed is deactivated as well in case in the provision of a pedal of an accelerator kik-Down the speed of the movement differs from in advance established speed no more, than on 20 km/h.

Depending on a design insignificant rejections of indications of a speedometer from the speed established by means of the limiter are possible.

At malfunction of the variable limiter of speed — address the subsection "Speedtronic", Undressed Precautionary and control lamps, and also messages of the multiinformation display on the registered malfunctions).

Models without the Distronic system (DTR)

If the limiter of speed cannot keep the set speed (for example, on descents), the sound signal is distributed and on the multiinformation display within about 5 seconds indication of "LIMIT EXCEEDED" blinks (RESTRICTION is EXCEEDED).

Segments on a speedometer blink until again the set restriction of speed is reached.

Constant limiter of speed

At operation of the car with tires with the winter drawing of a protector the constant limiter of speed can be installed in the menu of the Individual Installation system (Undressed the Multipurpose steering wheel, the multiinformation display) on the speed of 210 km/h.

If the constant limiter of speed is switched on, on a speedometer segments from the zero indication of a scale to the speed of 210 km/h shine.

Shortly before achievement of the set restriction of speed its value is displayed on the multiinformation display.

At malfunction of the constant limiter of speed — address the subsection "Speedtronic" of the Section Precautionary and control lamps, and also messages of the multiinformation display on the registered malfunctions).

Amplifier of emergency brake application (BAS) (Brake Assist)

There is a danger of accident!

The movement at the exceeded speed, especially on turns, the hydroplaning and non-compliance with a distance to ahead the going cars increase risk of accident. This risk cannot be reduced by means of BAS.

BAS helps you to reduce a brake way when braking in dangerous road situations and allows to use advantages of anti-blocking system (ABS) completely.

By very bystry pressing of a brake pedal of BAS provides the maximum strengthening of the brake drive. For achievement of whenever possible minimum brake way do not reduce effort of a leg, and continue to press a brake pedal.

At an otpuskaniye of a pedal of a brake, BAS it is switched off; on hand, as usual, there is a normal function of a working brake.

Anti-blocking system (ABS)

There is a danger of accident!

The movement at the exceeded speed, especially on turns, the hydroplaning and non-compliance with a distance to ahead the going cars increase risk of accident. This risk cannot be reduced also by the ABS system.

If the electronic key in the lock of ignition is in situation 2, the control lamp of the ABS system burns. It dies away at the working engine.

If the control lamp of the ABS system on the control panel at the working engine constantly burns — address the Section Precautionary and control lamps, and also messages of the multiinformation display on the registered malfunctions.

The ABS system prevents blocking of wheels irrespective of a condition of the road, since speed about 8 km/h.

If one of wheels when braking reaches a blocking limit, then owing to management of brake pressure by means of ABS, vibration of the car and an easy pulsation of a brake pedal is felt. Thus the driver is notified on transition to regulation through ABS.

In need of further braking do not reduce effort of a leg to a pedal. Thus advantage of the ABS system — braking at preservation of controllability of the car is used.

If full braking is required, press a pedal of a brake with a full force, the regulation mode by means of the ABS system thereby is provided.

In case of the slippery road, for example, at ice and snowfall, the system can work already at low effort of braking. The pulsation of a brake pedal arising at the same time indicates that style of driving should be adapted to difficult road conditions.

Electronic traction control system (ESP)

The electronic traction control system (ESP) increases stability of the movement of the car and ability of transfer of traction effort at all operating modes.

At the expense of snubbing of wheels counteraction to a drift or insufficient controllability of the car is created. At the same time the precautionary alarm lamp on a speedometer blinks.

There is a danger of accident!

If the precautionary alarm lamp on a speedometer blinks, conform the mode of the movement to road conditions.

The movement at too high speed increases risk of accident. This risk cannot be reduced also by the ESP system.

If the electronic key in the lock of ignition is in situation 2, on a speedometer the precautionary alarm lamp burns. It dies away at the working engine.

Switching off of function of the ESP traction control system

The switch is on the average console.

Press the switch:

1 Switching off
2 Inclusion

At the movement with antisliding chains, on deep snow, sand or gravel switching off of the traction control system can play a positive role. In this case the torque of the engine is not limited and driving wheels can be scrolled, creating milling action.

For the purpose of switching off press the ESP system switch above-1-.

The precautionary alarm lamp on a speedometer lights up.

Function of management of traction effort joins also at achievement by one wheel of a limit of coupling of the tire with the road, for example, at unilateral ice.

The wheel at the same time is braked for increase in traction effort. This function works to speed about 40 to / h. It is disconnected the latest at a speed of movement about 80 km/h.

The precautionary alarm lamp on a speedometer begins to blink at any speed of the movement if tires reached a limit of coupling with the road.

For return to the normal mode of the movement press the ESP system switch below-2-. The traction control system is ready to work again.

There is a danger of accident!

If on a speedometer the precautionary alarm lamp lights up:

Conform the mode of the movement to road conditions.

If on a speedometer the precautionary alarm lamp begins to blink:

At start-off from the place press an accelerator pedal only so as far as it is necessary.

During the movement release a pedal of an accelerator.

Conform the mode of the movement with road conditions.

Do not switch off the traction control system.

Non-compliance with these precautionary instructions increases danger of accident. There is a risk of a drift of the car.

At towage with the lifted forward bridge or control of the parking brake at the stand for test of brakes the engine has to be switched off. Otherwise owing to the active braking action through the ESP system violation of the brake system of the back bridge is possible.

In case of malfunction of anti-blocking system (ABS), it is switched off as well the ESP system.

At operation of the car during the winter period the maximum effect of the electronic traction control system (ESP) is reached only at use of tires "M + S" and, if necessary, antisliding chains.

When using wheels with tires of various sizes appropriate functioning of the ESP system is not provided.

If the electronic traction control system (ESP) is switched off, inclusion of the Distronic system (DTR) is impossible.

At turning on of the ESP traction control system the Distronic system is switched off — the yellow precautionary alarm lamp on a speedometer lights up.

Regulation of a road gleam of the car

The switch is on the average console.

Pressing of the switch at the working engine:

1 The raised road gleam
2 Normal road gleam
3 Control light-emitting diodes

The road gleam of the car is automatically regulated depending on the established road gleam ("raised" or "normal") and speeds of the movement. Thus traffic safety increases, and fuel consumption is cut.

At a speed of movement over about 140 km/h decrease in a road gleam of the car to level about 15 mm below normal is made. It is made irrespective of the chosen level of a road gleam. At a speed of movement lower than about 70 km/h the normal road gleam is established again.

Pressing of the switch above-1-:

The raised road gleam, is established, for example, at the bad road. At the same time increase in a road gleam of the car approximately on 25 mm is made. Control light-emitting diodes-3-light up. On the multiinformation display indication of "AIR SPRING, VEHICLE RISING" joins (PNEVMOPODVESKA, AVTOMOBIL PODNIMAETSYA!).

Upon termination of raising of the car indication is switched off.

At a speed of the movement about 120 km/h are higher or if speed within about 5 minutes remains between 80 km/h and 120 km/h, the "raised road gleam" installation is dumped. On the multiinformation display indication "AIR SPRING, LEVEL CANCELLED joins!’ (PNEVMOPODVESKA, the CHOICE of the ROAD GLEAM is DUMPED!).

If the speed of the movement of the car does not reach these limits, the raised road gleam remains in memory even at taking out of an electronic key from the ignition lock.

Pressing of the switch below-2-:

Decrease in the raised road gleam to normal. Control light-emitting diodes-3-die away.

The warning system and the alarm system of malfunctions — address subsection of Pnevmopodvesk of the Section Precautionary and control lamps, and also messages of the multiinformation display on the registered malfunctions).

The adaptive damping system (ADS)

The switch is on the average console.

Press the switch at the working engine:

1 Sports program of damping
2 Comfortable program of damping
3 Control light-emitting diode

Optimum damping automatically is established depending on the chosen program of damping ("sports" or "comfortable"), a condition of the road and style of driving.

Pressing of the switch above-1-:

Sports program of damping. Installation for sports style of driving. The control light-emitting diode-3-on the switch lights up dies away.

The chosen program of damping (1, 2) remains in memory, even at taking out of an electronic key from the ignition lock.

Parktronic system (PTS)

The Parktronic system displays to you optically and acoustically distance between your car and an obstacle.

If the electronic key in the lock of ignition turns in situation 2, the Parktronic system automatically joins and remains activated to speed about 15 km/h.

At higher speed the Parktronic system is automatically switched off. At a low speed it automatically again joins.

Activation of signaling devices with the corresponding zone of control is made depending on position of the lever of the selector of automatic transmission.

Position of the lever of the AT selector:

"D" — are activated signaling devices for a forward zone.
"R", "N" — are activated signaling devices for forward and back zones.
"Р" — signaling devices are deactivated.

There is a danger of accident!

Responsibility for a parkovaniye and when maneuvering in critical situations is always born by the driver.

The Parktronic system is auxiliary system. It is not calculated on replacing the driver, and is not able to exempt him from a duty to remain attentive.

The Parktronic system can be switched off by the switch on the average console.

Sensors

Control of the next zone is made by 6 sensors-1-on a front bumper and 4 sensors on a rear bumper.

 For ensuring full operability of the Parktronic system constantly you hold sensors free from dirt, ice and a snezhura.

For this purpose you make regular cleaning of sensors, at the same time it is necessary to avoid scratches or damage of sensors. (Cleaning of sensors of the Parktronic system on bumpers — address the Head Kuzov).

Signaling devices

1 Frame
2 Segments

The distance between the sensor and an obstacle to you is displayed by segments of-2 signaling devices.

Signaling devices for a forward zone are on the dashboard over the air deflector from the driver and over the average air deflector.

Signaling devices for a back zone are on a roof ceiling covering in a back part of salon.

If the Parktronic system is included, on signaling devices a framework-1-shines.

Signaling devices are subdivided into 6 yellow and 2 red segments.

If the car approaches the obstacle registered by sensors, then depending on distance one or several segments light up. Since the seventh segment in addition is distributed faltering, and from the eighth segment — a constant warning sound signal within at most 3 seconds.

Radius of operation of sensors

Front bumper:

in the middle of about 100 cm
corners about 60 cm

Rear bumper:

in the middle of about 120 cm
corners about 80 cm

At these distances the first yellow segment lights up. At reduction of distance other segments light up.

The minimum distance between the sensor and an obstacle:

forward corners about 15 cm
in the middle of about 20 cm

All yellow segments and one or both red segments shine. In addition approximately for 3 seconds the warning sound signal is distributed.

Further approach can lead to the fact that the obstacle will not be displayed any more (segments do not light up).

There is a danger of accident!

Responsibility for a parkovaniye and when maneuvering in critical situations is always born by the driver.

You watch that in a zone of maneuvering there were no people or animals.

The Parktronic system is auxiliary system. It is not calculated on replacing the driver, and is not able to exempt him from a duty to remain attentive. Thus, the driver has to and further at the movement at a low speed pay attention to a direct environment of the car.

At a parkovaniye it is necessary to pay special attention to the objects which are below or above sensors, it, for example, as curbstones for flowers or дышло the trailer.

The similar objects which are in close proximity (about 30 cm), can be not always identified by system and, thus, can be damaged or lead to damage of the car.

Function of the Parktronic system can be broken if sensors are damaged or covered with dirt, snow, ice and especially snezhury.
The hindrances arising at the expense of other sources of ultrasound, for example, of a pneumatic brake of trucks or pneumatic hammers cannot be also completely excluded.

It is possible that certain objects which can touch a forward or back part of the car will not be identified by system sensors.

Switching off of the Parktronic system

The switch is on the average console.

Press the switch:

1 Switching off
2 Inclusion
3 The control light-emitting diode — burns at the switched-off Parktronic system

Inclusion happens automatically if the electronic key in the lock of ignition turns in situation 2.

Towage of the trailer

If at towage of the trailer the feeding cable is inserted into the plug socket, function of protection of a back part of a body is not activated.

If the feeding cable is disconnected, function of protection of a back part of a body is again activated.

The adapter for the trailer with the 7-contact plug has to be pulled out from the socket after a trailer detachment, otherwise function of protection of a back part of a body remains not activated.

Malfunction of the Parktronic system

At malfunction only red segments of all signaling devices light up.

The foreign source of ultrasound or the polluted sensor can be the cause. (Cleaning of sensors of the Parktronic system on bumpers — address the Head Kuzov).

After cleaning of sensors turn an electronic key in the ignition lock in situation 2 again.

At malfunction in addition within about 3 seconds the warning sound signal is distributed, and the control light-emitting diode on the switch of the Parktronic system on the average console lights up. The system is switched off!

As soon as possible address on the Mercedes-Benz station for check of the Parktronic system.

Device of remote opening of a door of a garage

There is a danger of accident!

Pressing one of buttons of the transmitter of the built-in device of remote control in an internal rear-view mirror is allowed only if in a zone of the movement of system of opening of a door of a garage there are no people or any objects; otherwise there is a danger of traumatizing people the opening door.

The device of remote control which is built in in an internal rear-view mirror it is possible to open or close up to three various door systems.

Programming of the built-in device of remote control

There is a danger of accident!

During programming and when pressing the button of the transmitter of the built-in device of remote control in an internal rear-view mirror, in a zone of the movement of a door or gate of a garage there should not be people or any objects.

The door of a garage can begin to open or be closed and, thus, to put injuries to people.

Buttons of the transmitter-1-,-2-and-3-can be programmed.

Programming on the example of the transmitter-1-button:

· Turn an electronic key in the lock of ignition in situation 1 or 2.

Press the button of the transmitter-1-and hold pressed until the control light-emitting diode-4-does not begin to blink with a frequency approximately once a second.

Continue to hold the button of the transmitter-1-pressed.

The control light-emitting diode-4-begins to blink at once if one of buttons of the transmitter is programmed for the first time or if contents of the STORAGE of the built-in device of remote control were dumped previously.

At repeated programming of the programmed transmitter button the control light-emitting diode-4-begins to blink in about 20 seconds:

· You hold the portable device of remote control of system of opening of a door of a garage directed (a transmitter exit) on the left side of an internal rear-view mirror. Press the button of the transmitter of the portable device of remote control until the control light-emitting diode-4-does not begin to blink quickly.
