1.11. The ignition lock

Not to damage the electronic block in a key head, use a key accurately.
Take out a key from the ignition lock only after a full stop of the car that during movement steering blocking has not joined.
In order to avoid uncontrollable roll the car after its full stop always include a lay brake.

Fig. 1–33. Positions of a key in the ignition lock

The key in the ignition lock has following positions (fig. 1–33):

Petrol engines
1 – ignition is switched off, the engine does not work;
2 – ignition is included;

Diesel engines
1 – fuel giving is blocked, the engine does not work;
2 – prestarting heating of the engine and position at car movement.
In an operating time of a prestarting heater other electrodevices – heavy users of a current should be switched off. Otherwise loading strongly increases by the storage battery;

For all cars
Position 1
For steering blocking to turn a steering wheel at the taken out ignition key before click of fixing of a lock finger of a steering.

The note
If after extraction of a key from the ignition lock there were not switched off devices of illumination or the turn index at the moment of opening of a door of the driver the sound signal of type "buzzer" will join.

Position 2
If the key in the ignition lock does not turn or turns hardly in this position, it is necessary to shake a little a steering wheel to the left-to the right – the wheel will be unblocked.

Position 3
In this position external illumination lay fires are switched off, included, heavy users of the electric power are switched off.
Before each new attempt to start up the engine it is necessary to return the ignition key in position 1. The device of blocking of repeated inclusion of the starter, placed in the ignition lock, prevents starter inclusion at rotation of a cranked shaft of the engine and by that protects a starter from breakage.

Blocking in the ignition lock
On cars with an automatic transmission the key after ignition deenergizing can be taken out only at a selector finding in the River position
At the taken out ignition key the selector is blocked in this position.
