1.10.23. A liquid crystal combination of devices

At inclusion ignition all segments of a combination of devices light up. If all controllable functions are perfectly in order, lamps approximately in 5 seconds die away.

Brightness of segments increases within 2 seconds and 3 seconds segments burn with the maximum brightness.

Within 2 seconds speed 125 is highlighted, then number 288 is highlighted. The check mode stops immediately after engine start.

Check allows to define serviceability of all segments of a combination of devices.

All segments burn till the end of check, then the real data of displayed parametres is highlighted.

Pressure of oil with alarm sector

If at work of the engine pressure of oil has decreased below critical value – the red sector blinks.

The sector also carries out function of a control lamp of pressure of oil. At the included ignition and not working engine the sector burns constantly, without blinking.

Can light up idling at the hot engine, at high number of turns the sector should go out.

At fire during movement: immediately switch off the engine as giving of greasing of the engine can stop that will lead to blocking of the engine and wheels. Thus squeeze out coupling and include neutral transfer, and at an automatic transmission establish the lever of a choice of transfers to position "N" and switch off ignition. A key take only after a car stop (differently can is unexpected work steering wheel blocking).

The voltmeter with alarm sector

At start of the engine by an indication starter should not decrease below a red label, at engine work should be under an orange label. Otherwise it is necessary to address on servicing deport.

If pressure in an onboard network of the car more than 15 In or less 9В, at the working engine blinks red sector.

The sector also carries out function of a control lamp of the generator. The sector burns at the included ignition and dies away after engine start.

The index of temperature of a cooling liquid with alarm sector

If the temperature of a cooling liquid exceeds admissible limits a grief all segments and the red sector blinks.

Blue – the engine has not got warm to normal working temperature.

Yellow – normal working temperature.

Red – the temperature of a cooling liquid exceeds admissible limits:

 – Engine damage is possible;
 – Immediately switch off the engine:
 – Address on servicing deport.

The index of level of fuel with alarm sector

If one segment burns only and the orange sector blinks, it is necessary to fill the car.


The speedometer displays speed of the car from 7 to 250 km/hour.

From 7 to 60 km/hour speed is displayed with step of 1 km/hour, and about 60 km/hour – with step of 2 km/hour. At speed less than 7 km/hour on a speedometer is highlighted speed of 0 km/hour.


Turns of a cranked shaft of the engine are displayed in the form of the schedule. On the schedule display of a twisting moment of the engine which at approach to the maximum turns starts to decrease is resulted. On cars without restriction of the maximum turns of the engine on the maximum turns the schedule line starts to blink.

Yellow – optimum turns of the engine.

Drive the car whenever possible in the minimum range of number of turns for each transfer (between 2000 and 3000 rpm) and with uniform speed.

Orange – short-term work of the engine is supposed.

Red – engine damage is possible.
