1.7.6. Easytronic transmission
The automated mechanical Easytronic transmission allows to carry out manual (the manual mode) or automatic (the automatic mode) gear shifting, at the same time in both modes automatic control of coupling is provided.
Indication of the mode and the included transfer is displayed on the display.
Launch of the engine
Launch of the engine is possible only at the pressed brake pedal. On the indicator of the transmission the badge N is shown. At not pressed brake pedal the badge N blinks.
Switching in neutral situation before launch of the engine is not obligatory. Even by the included transfer the transmission before launch of the engine automatically switches in neutral situation. Because of it the small delay of launch of the engine is possible.
Control of the Easytronic transmission of the gear shifting lever
The gear shifting lever always has to move in each direction against the stop. After each action it automatically comes back to average situation therefore it is necessary to monitor indication of the transfer/mode on the transmission indicator.
Start-off of the car
Press a brake pedal, release the parking brake, transfer the gear shifting lever to situation A. The Easytronic system will switch in the automatic mode and will include the first transfer (at the included winter mode – the second transfer). On the indicator of the transmission the A1 symbol (will be displayed at the included winter mode – A2).
It occurs also in that case when after launch of the engine at the pressed brake pedal the gear shifting lever for the first time is transferred to situation + or-.
After a brake otpuskaniye the car will begin the movement.
It is also possible to start, without pressing a brake if at once after movement of the lever of gear shifting to press an accelerator pedal. If not to press it, transfer will not join (the symbol And will blink). Transfer the gear shifting lever to situation N and begin the movement, having pressed a brake, and then having moved the gear shifting lever to situation A.
In the automatic mode gear shifting is carried out automatically depending on road conditions.
Switching between the automatic and manual mode
In the manual mode of transfer switch manually. On the indicator of the transmission the letter M and the included transfer is displayed.
At too low speed of the engine the Easytronic transmission switches to lower transfer automatically even in the manual mode. It prevents muffling of the engine.
Mode of switching of speeds
If higher transfer is chosen at an insufficient speed or lower transfer at too high speed, switching is not made. It prevents too low or too high turns.
By repeated movement of the lever of gear shifting with a short interval it is possible to miss transfers.
If the automatic mode is included, when moving the lever of gear shifting to situation + or – the Easytronic transmission will switch in the manual mode and will raise or, respectively, will lower transfer. On the indicator of the transmission the symbol of M and the transfer included at present will be displayed.
Moving of the lever of gear shifting to situation R
The mode of a backing can be included only on the standing car.
Press a brake pedal, release the parking brake, transfer the gear shifting lever to situation R. The backing will join. On the indicator of the transmission the symbol R will be displayed.
After a brake otpuskaniye the car will begin the movement.
It is also possible to start a backing, without pressing a brake if at once after movement of the lever of gear shifting to press an accelerator pedal. If not to press it, transfer will not join (the symbol R blinks). Transfer the gear shifting lever to situation N and begin the movement, in the beginning having pressed a brake, and then having moved the gear shifting lever to situation R.
The driving modes with electronic control
In the automatic mode the program of regulation of temperature after cold start by a switching delay (on the raised turns) automatically quickly brings the catalyst to temperature demanded for optimum reduction of emission of harmful substances in an exhaust.
The adaptive modes will automatically coordinate process of switching to other transfers with driving conditions, for example when driving with the trailer, with big loading and on rises.
At inclusion of the SPORT mode time of switching is reduced, and switching happens at higher turns (if the speed regulator is not switched on).
Compulsory decrease in transfer
Pressing of a pedal of an accelerator gives points of resistance below to the fact that at a speed below a certain value the transmission will switch to a low gear. For acceleration it is necessary to use the full capacity of the engine.
When squeezing a pedal of an accelerator gear shifting manually is impossible.
In the engine speed range close to the top limit, the transmission when squeezing a pedal of an accelerator switches to higher transfer even in the manual mode.
Without squeezing of a pedal of an accelerator this automatic switching in the manual mode is not made.
At start-off from the place in the SPORT mode with compulsory decrease in transfer driving wheels slightly revolve. Thus the maximum acceleration of the car is provided.
Additional braking by the engine
During descent the Easytronic transmission switches to higher transfers only on the raised turns. When braking the Easytronic transmission switches to lower transfer in due time.
For use of brake opportunities of the engine during descent in due time switch to lower transfer.
Both in automatic, and in manual the modes at a car stop the first transfer (automatically joins at the included winter mode – the second transfer) and coupling is switched off. In situation R remains included in a backing.
If at the working engine the driver's door opens, and the pedal of a brake is not pressed, the warning sound signal is given: it is necessary to transfer the gear shifting lever to situation N and to tighten the parking brake.
At a stop on rise it is necessary to tighten surely the parking brake or to press a pedal of the main brake. Do not hold the car by the included transfer due to increase in speed of the engine not to allow a transmission overheat.
At excessive heating coupling automatically joins.
At longer stops, for example in a stopper or on moving, switch off the engine.
Installation of the car on the parking
Before an exit from the car tighten the parking brake then take out a key from the ignition lock.
The transfer included the last (indication on the transmission indicator) remains included. In situation N transfer is not included.
After switching off of ignition the Easytronic transmission ceases to react to movements of the lever of gear shifting.
If not to take out the ignition key, then at a long time of the parking of the car there can be an accumulator discharge.
If do not tighten the parking brake, within several seconds after switching off of ignition the signaling device of the parking brake system blinks.
If at the switched-off engine and not tightened parking brake the driver's door opens, the warning sound signal is given and the same signaling device blinks. In this case it is necessary to include ignition, to include transfer then to switch off ignition and to tighten the parking brake.
Car pulling at pro-slipping
For a pulling of the car which got stuck in sand, dirt, snow or in a ditch at slightly pressed pedal of an accelerator you translate the gear shifting lever between provisions R and A back-forward (or "+" and "-"). Whenever possible hold the engine on low turns and avoid breakthroughs when pressing an accelerator pedal.
Apply the way described above only in the specified exceptional cases.
For exact maneuvering, for example at installation on the parking, arrival in a garage, etc., it is possible to use property of "slipping" with the included transfer at an otpuskaniye of a pedal of the main brake.
Do not squeeze out a pedal of an accelerator and a brake at the same time at all.
For protection against damage of the Easytronic transmission at a coupling overheat function of "slipping" is automatically switched off.
