Control lamp of the tightened parking brake or too low level of brake liquid.
Burns at the included ignition if will tighten the parking brake and/or liquid level in hydraulic system of a drive of brakes norms are lower.

If lights up at the released hand parking brake: to check brake action, without creating dangerous situations for other participants of movement.

If there is no brake action, to stop further movement. To address for the help in an authorized workshop of Opel firm.

Manual gear shifting

• = neutral situation

1-5= transfers 1-5

= 6th transfer

R = backing

5th transfer: switch to the right with effort against the stop.

Between 5-6 transfer: the switching lever with effort move on a straight line to the right.

With the 5th on the 4th transfer: effort to the left do not apply.

Backing: at the standing car in 3 seconds after pressing of coupling pull up a ring and include transfer.

If transfer does not join: on idling turns for short time squeeze out and release coupling, again to switch transfer.

Manual gear shifting at cars with the engine C of 25 XE

• = idling

1-5= transfers 1-5

R = backing

5th transfer: switch to the right with effort against the stop.

With the 5th on the 4th transfer: effort to the left do not apply.

Backing: at the standing car in 3 seconds after pressing of coupling pull up a ring and include transfer.

If transfer does not join: on idling turns for short time squeeze out and release coupling, again switch transfer.

Automatic gear shifting

R = parking

R= backing

N= neutral situation (idling)

Engine start only at R or N.

For inclusion of R or R pull the lever

Р: previously tighten the parking brake.

R: only at the standing car.


D= transfers 1. - 4.

3= transfers 1. - 3.

2= transfers 1. - 2.

1= 1st transfer

in addition:

S= sports driving

3, 2 or 1 are used at undesirable change of transfers, for example, 4-3-4... on streets with a large number of turns.

Blocking against casual inclusion of provisions P, R, 3, 2, or 1

Extend the handle under the switching lever, 1, R: against the stop.

When switching situation with 1 on N or with R on the D handle do not extend.

Exhaust gases

The monooxide of carbon a part of exhaust gases extremely is poisonous and is thus colourless and is not felt on a smell.

Therefore it is forbidden:

- to inhale exhaust gases;
- to leave to work the engine indoors

It is necessary to avoid also driving with an open trunk lid as thus exhaust gases can get to car salon.

Internal combustion engine start 18SV

The lever of gear shifting establish in neutral situation and squeeze out coupling, and on an automatic transmission, switch it in a mode P or N. At the cold engine for its start once completely squeeze out an accelerator pedal. Turn a key in situation III.

After start short time press an accelerator pedal for decrease in number of turns of the engine.

Start at the warm engine: hold a pedal of an accelerator pressed to a half, at the hot engine - squeeze out completely.

Start of internal combustion engines 16LZ2, Х16SZ, С18NZ, С20NE, 20NE, С20ХЕV, С20LET, С25ХЕ

The lever of gear shifting establish in neutral situation and squeeze out coupling, and on an automatic transmission, switch it in a mode P or N. A pedal of an accelerator do not press. Turn a key in situation III.

Engine turns with temperature increase of the engine will automatically decrease to number of turns of idling.

Before restart turn a key in the ignition lock in situation • also wait for 2 seconds.

Start of the diesel engine of 17 DR

Squeeze out coupling, a pedal акселерато ра do not press. Turn a key in situation II. When the bulb of preliminary heating will go out, turn a key in situation III.

At temperature +10 °C besides are lower; at start a pedal of an accelerator press completely. When the engine will earn, slowly release an accelerator pedal.

At temperature-15 °C besides are lower: increase time of preliminary warming up. Start-up of the engine make in some seconds after switching off of a bulb of preliminary warming up.

Before restart turn a key in the ignition lock in situation • also wait for 2 seconds.

Start of the turbodiesel engine 17DT (TC4 EE1)

The lever of gear shifting establish in neutral situation and squeeze out coupling, a pedal of an accelerator do not press, turn a key in situation II. When the bulb of preliminary warming up (about 4 seconds) will go out, turn a key in situation III.

Before restart turn a key in the ignition lock in situation • also wait for 2 seconds.

Release of the parking brake

Raise the lever a little. Press the razblokiruyushchy button. Completely lower the lever.

The parking brake puts in action drum-type brakes of the back bridge. At a pulling it is fixed independently.
