1.13. System TC

The HARDWARE system (Traction Control System), system of the automatic control and the prevention юза and пробуксовывания, warns, irrespective of a condition of a road covering and coupling of tyres with road, пробуксовывание driving wheels.

This system watches frequency of rotation of all wheels and reduces capacity of the engine as soon as one of driving wheels starts to revolve. If necessary revolving driving wheel is braked. Thanks to it, in particular in the presence of a snow cover and a glaze ice, and also on a wet or slippery road cloth, stability of the car raises at movement and efficiency of transfer of resulting effort of a road surface.

Process of regulation by means of HARDWARE system is displayed by a signalling device blinking. During regulation process capacity of the engine (the sound of work of the engine changes) decreases.

The HARDWARE system is made active, as soon as ignition joins.

 – At the included ignition the signalling device burns;
 – It will go out in some seconds after the system will spend self-checking;
 – The HARDWARE system is made active now and can at any speed of movement in a combination with the antiblocking device of brake system ABS carry out the problem.

The system is not efficient, if:

 – After inclusion of ignition the signalling device does not light up;
 – After inclusion of ignition the signalling device will not go out;
 – The signalling device constantly burns during movement;
 – In the antiblocking device to brake system ABS there is a malfunction.

In case of malfunction, probably, movement continuation. Stability of the car at movement can, depending on acceleration and a condition of a road surface, owing to пробуксовывания driving wheels to go down.

Switching-off of system of the HARDWARE

In special situations when it is required пробуксовывание driving wheels, for example:

 – Movement with chains противоскольжения;
 – Movement on deep snow;
 – "Rocking" in deep snow

Happens expedient to disconnect system of the HARDWARE by means of the HARDWARE key.

Switching-off is displayed by burning of a signalling device of the HARDWARE.

By repeated pressing a key of the HARDWARE or at each inclusion of ignition the system again joins.
