 WORKING CAPACITY CHECK

The turn index, green
The lamp blinks at inclusion of indexes of turn. At movement with the trailer the lamp blinks also at inclusion of indexes of turn on the trailer. The speeded up blinking testifies to defect in system.

Headlight, dark blue
The lamp burns at the included headlight and using a light signal. For details address to Section Illumination.

Lay brake, red -
The lamp lights up at the tightened lever of a lay brake. For details address to Section the Lay brake.

Level of a brake liquid/deterioration brake колодок *, red -
At lamp fire it is necessary to check up level of a brake liquid or a condition brake колодок. If level of a brake liquid has fallen below norm (on the display of system of automatic diagnostics there is a message “Bremsflüssigk. prüfen”
Or
Brake колодки have worn out (on the display of system of automatic diagnostics there is a message “Bremsbelag prüfen")

Antiblocking system of brakes (ABS), yellow -
If the lamp lights up during movement it serves as a signal of switching-off ABS because of malfunction of system. Thus normal efficiency of brakes remains without restrictions. Address for check on СТОА BMW. For details address to Section Antiblocking system of brakes (ABS).

Inflatable pillows of safety, red -
Check of working capacity of a lamp is made already after ignition key turn in position 1. If thus it does not light up or lights up during movement the request to address on СТОА BMW for check. For details address to Section of System of safety.

Темпостат *, green
The lamp burns at the included system. The system can be operated from a multipurpose steering wheel. For details address to Razdelu Tempostat.

Please, be fastened *, red -
Depending on a car complete set at lamp fire are possible simultaneous giving sound сигнала* or occurrence сообщения* on the display of system of automatic diagnostics. Depending on a complete set of the car the lamp burns up to пристегивания. For details about seat belts address to materials of Section of System of safety

Automatic transmission *, yellow ­
Because of malfunction АТ of a gear change are carried out only under the emergency program. The request to address on the nearest СТОА BMW. For details address to Section Automatic transmission (АТ) *.

Regulator of a road gleam *, yellow ­
If the control lamp has lighted up or on the display of system of automatic diagnostics there was a message “Niveauregel inaktiv” it means that the regulator of a road gleam is faulty.
Stop and examine the car. If its back part is located considerably below a lobby, or the car costs slantwise (compare right back and left back parts) address on the nearest СТОА BMW. Cautiously continue movement.

If during movement the alarm lamp of system DDE has lighted up or on the display of system of automatic diagnostics there was a message “Einspritzanlage” it means that in electronic system of injection there was a malfunction. If the engine has not decayed, it is possible to continue movement as management of engine work will be carried out under the emergency program. However thus capacity will be lowered. Therefore at the first possibility repair injection system.

Run counters, the indicator of temperature of external air

Execution of counters and the indicator variously depending on a complete set of your car.

The counter of the general run

At ignition key installation in position 0 you can cause counter indications on indication by button pressing on an instrument guard (it is shown by an arrow).

Measuring instrument of run from the moment of dump

Dump on a zero occurs by pressing of the button shown by an arrow if thus the ignition key is in position 1 or 2.

The indicator of temperature of external air

Since key installation in position 1, on indication the temperature of external air is deduced. A conclusion to indication at switched off зажигании*: press the button.

The prevention of ice

At temperature drop more low +3°С the precautionary sound signal, and indication some time is distributed blinks.

The prevention repeats, if after last giving of a signal the temperature at least has risen once to +6°С, and then has again fallen to +3°С.

Despite presence of system of the prevention of ice, possibility of its formation (for example, on bridges and the shaded sites of roads) as well is not excluded at temperature above +3°С.

Tachometre

Avoid finishing of turns of the engine to values of red sector of a scale.
In this range for engine protection fuel giving that is appreciable by capacity falling interrupts.

Эконометр

Эконометр registers the actual expense of fuel in km l/100. You can supervise at any moment, your manner of driving is how much economic and harmless.
At a stop of the car of the marksman comes back to a zero.

The index of a stock of fuel in a tank

For check of work of the device its control lamp for some time lights up at ignition inclusion.
If the lamp burns constantly it means that in a tank there was a following quantity of fuel:
About 8 l - BMW 520i, 523i, 528i, 525tds
About 10 l - BMW 535i, 540i
Data about refuelling capacity of a fuel tank is presented in Specifications.

The various angle of slope of the car (for example, at long movement on mountain road) can cause insignificant fluctuations of instrument readings.
The request to refuel in due time as driving “to last drop” can lead to engine or catalyst damages.

The index of temperature of a cooling liquid

Arrow on dark blue sector
The engine still the cold. Movement should occur at moderate turns and speeds.
Arrow on red sector
If the control lamp blinks or on the display automatic диагностики* there is a message “Kuhlwassertemperatur” (Temperature of a cooling liquid) it means that the engine перегрет. In this case it is necessary at once to stop and allow to the engine to cool down.

Scale zone between colour sectors
Corresponds to normal working temperature. At a heat of external air or at the big loadings on the engine of the marksman can come nearer to red sector closely.
Check of level of a cooling liquid is carried out according to recommendations Check of levels of liquids Has undressed.

The indicator of forthcoming maintenance service

Indicator execution variously depending on комлектации your car.

Green signals
The there is shone green signals, the more close a maintenance service term less.
Yellow signal
This signal appears in a combination to messages OILSERVICE or INSPECTION. Lights up at approach of term of corresponding maintenance service.
Red signal
Term next THAT is passed.
Symbol in the form of hours
Reminder on approach of term of replacement of a brake liquid.

The indicator does not consider time of parking of the car with the disconnected plugs of the accumulator.

However for observance of the established periodicity of replacement of a brake liquid it is necessary to consider this time.

The switch of indexes of turn and headlight

The switch has following working positions:
1 — the Headlight (after inclusion the dark blue control lamp burns)
2 — the Light signal
3 — turn Indexes (after inclusion the green control lamp blinks and clicks the relay)

The speeded up blinking of a control lamp and relay clicking serve as a signal about malfunction of one of lamps of indexes of turn (at movement with the trailer - malfunction of a lamp of the index of turn on the trailer is possible also).

Unstable inclusion of indexes of turn
Slightly press on the lever, without translating it for a point of the raised resistance. If to release the switch lever, he will return to a starting position.

Screen wipers and стеклоомыватели

0 — a starting position (screen wipers do not work)
1 — work of screen wipers in an interval mode/gauge of intensity дождя*
2 — work of screen wipers with a normal rate
3 — work of screen wipers with the raised frequency
4 — single inclusion of screen wipers
5 — work стеклоомывателей in an automatic mode
6 — work стеклоомывателей in intensive режиме*
7 — a regulator of an interval of inclusion of screen wipers at work in an interval mode / sensitivity of the gauge of intensity of a rain

1. An interval mode / the intensity gauge дождя*

The interval between inclusions can be regulated in steps by the corrugated castor 7 having four positions. Besides, there is an automatic control depending on actual speed of movement.

The gauge of intensity of a rain

The gauge allows to regulate automatically frequency of work of screen wipers depending on intensity of a rain and, certainly, a snowfall. It means that if you have included the gauge you should not care of inclusion any more both deenergizing of screen wipers and switching from one mode of their work on another. You can concentrate the attention to road completely. It is especially convenient under bad weather conditions.

The radiator directs infra-red light on a windscreen surface in such a manner that at dry glass this light is reflected completely. The gauge measures intensity of reflected light.

If has flown down it is covered by water drops reflexion degree decreases as infra-red light partially passes through glass. Intensity of reflected light allows to define degree of humidifying of a windscreen.

If screen wipers are included in an interval mode they react at once, if, for example, on a windscreen of your car water from under wheels ahead of the going car has got. Thus, the gauge of intensity of a rain promotes большей to traffic safety and increase of convenience of driving.

Gauge inclusion

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. After ignition key turn in position 1 or 2 translate the lever of the switch from position 0 in position 1. In any case as acknowledgement of inclusion of the gauge there will be a single operation of screen wipers.
2. You can include also the gauge, having translated the switch lever in position 1 of any other position or having involved automatic (5) or an intensive mode (6) in position of 1 switch
3. The corrugated castor 7 will allow you to regulate sensitivity of the gauge according to your wishes.
4. Ignition deenergizing conducts to gauge switching-off.

If you wish to leave for long time the switch lever in position “Gauge of intensity of a rain” after ignition key turn 1 you can already include the gauge in position, having turned a corrugated castor 7.

At a sink in the jet washer disconnect the gauge as inadvertent operation of screen wipers can lead to their breakage.

2. Work of screen wipers with a normal rate

At a car stop there is an automatic switching on an interval operating mode (it does not concern cars with the gauge of intensity of a rain).

3. Work of screen wipers with the raised frequency

At a stop of the car screen wipers work with a normal rate (it does not concern cars with the gauge of intensity of a rain).

5. Work стеклоомывателей in an automatic mode

Spraying of a windscreen by washing liquid is accompanied by short-term inclusion of screen wipers.

(Short-term influence on the switch lever the washing liquid moves on a windscreen, but screen wipers do not join).

6. Work стеклоомывателей in intensive режиме*

Стеклоомыватели work the same as and at installation of the lever of the switch in position 5, but with advancing spraying of a windscreen by a strong washing-up liquid.

Фароомыватели*

If devices of illumination of the car at every fifth operation of washers of a windscreen in an automatic or intensive mode there is an automatic washing of headlights are included.

In order to avoid visibility deterioration it is necessary to use washers only in the event that freezing of a washing liquid on a windscreen is excluded. Use a special nonfreezing liquid (address to Specifications). In order to avoid damage of the pump of system стеклоомывателей it cannot be included in the absence of a liquid in a refuelling tank.

Heating snuffled стеклоомывателей

Heating is carried out automatically if the ignition key is thus in position 2.

Heating of back glass

Inclusion
Press a key. While the control lamp burns, heating of back glass works in a mode of the raised capacity (the accelerated defrosting).
When the lamp dies away, capacity of heating is reduced, and its switching-off is made automatically.
If it is necessary, press a key once again. The accelerated defrosting again will be included, while the control lamp burns.
Deenergizing
At a burning control lamp press a key.

9 — Automatics of maintenance of the set speed: deenergizing
10 — Inclusion and mode deenergizing рециркуляции air or heating of a steering wheel

In a multipurpose steering wheel the keys allowing quickly are built in, without distracting from an event on road, to use:
 • some functions of a radio receiver
 • the conditioner in a mode рециркуляции air
Or
 • system of heating of a steering wheel
 • automatics of maintenance of the set speed
 • some functions of phone

For management of various systems from their multipurpose steering wheel it is necessary to include preliminary.
