Acquaintance to the car

Keys, locks and locks

Set of keys

The set of keys given upon purchase of the new car is packed into a plastic cover, with the number code which is put down on it. If you receive keys without such packing, ask the representative of dealer office where the car is acquired to tell you a number code of keys.

Two keys - main and office are included in the package. The main key approaches all locks on the car whereas office is intended only for unlocking/locking of a driver's door and control of the ignition lock. The main key has to be stored constantly at the owner of the vehicle whereas office can be transferred to valets of parkings or car service specialists who cannot get with its help even into a ware box of the dashboard.

Main key (at the left) and office key (on the right).

Introduction of a key to the lock of ignition and its extraction back

Do not forget before leaving the car to take a key from the ignition lock. Check whether all doors are reliably locked!

The key is equipped with a bilateral small beard and can be inserted into the lock in any way. Enter a key against the stop into the well of the cylinder of the lock of ignition and turn it in demanded from designated on an accompanying illustration situation. Introduction of a key to the lock and its extraction are back possible only in position of the LOCK cylinder. For transfer of the key inserted into the lock to position of LOCK previously press it (the lever of the AT selector has to be installed in situation P).

Provisions of the cylinder of the lock of ignition.

If to open a driver's door at the key inserted into the ignition lock, the alarm buzzer reminding to the driver of need to take a key will be distributed.

Blocking of a steering column

The car is equipped with the lock of a steering column of passive type. The lock prevents a possibility of driving at the key taken from the ignition lock. If the steering wheel turns no more than half way in each of the directions, and the key is taken from the ignition lock, therefore the steering column is blocked.

To make blocking of a wheel, turn it the top party down, kill the engine and take a key from the ignition lock. Now slightly pull a steering wheel, rotating it in both directions for input of the lock in gearing.

Shutdown of the lock is made by small turn of a key in the ignition lock in any of the parties.

If blocking of a wheel was made by its turn to the right/to the left, then and for its shutdown the steering wheel should be turned in the same direction.

Locks of doors

The main key except the lock of ignition approaches also to all doors of the car, including a back door.

To unlock or lock a door, enter a key into the well of the cylinder of its lock.

The main key approaches locks of all doors of the car.

After unlocking of the lock of a door of a back it can repeatedly open and be locked without application of a key. To open a back door, pull on yourself its handle.

At leaky closed back door the fulfilled gases containing highly toxic and hazardous to health and human lives monoxide of carbon (SO) get into interior of the car during its movement! Before beginning the movement make sure of reliability of closing of a door of a back.

Otpuskaniye of the lock of folding glass of a door of a back (can be included in the additional package of the car) is made along with unlocking of the last. For opening of glass wring out top a rychazhok of the switch located over a plate of registration plate. When opening folding glass there is an automatic shutdown of a back screen wiper for the purpose of prevention of its casual start.

Handle of unlocking of the lock of a door of a back (top arrow) and rychazhok of the switch of an otpuskaniye of a clamp of folding glass of a door of a back (lower arrow).

At leaky closed folding glass of a door of a back the fulfilled gases containing highly toxic and hazardous to health and human lives monoxide of carbon (SO) get into interior of the car during its movement! Before beginning the movement check whether glass is densely closed.

All doors of the car are equipped with internal locks of rychazhkovy type. For locking of a door at a zakhlopyvaniye it is enough to transfer forward to position of LOCK the rychazhkovy switch on its internal party.

For automatic locking of a door at its zakhlopyvaniye transfer the rychazhkovy switch from the inside of a door to position of LOCK.

After a zakhlopyvaniye unlocking from within back doors becomes possible only after a conclusion of their rychazhkovy switches from position of LOCK. Forward doors can be open by means of internal handles.

For reasons of the general safety all doors of the car during the movement have to be blocked!

Back doors of the car are in addition equipped with the special locks allowing to prevent a possibility of their unlocking from within salon. These locks without fail have to be used in transit children. For activation of the lock lower the rychazhok located over a lock latch at a back end face of a door down. Switching off of the lock is made by switching a rychazhka in the top situation.

The door lock lock preventing a possibility of its unlocking from within salon.

In case of accident do not forget that at the switched-on lock back doors of the car can be open only outside - take care of that back passengers could in time get out of the car!

System of the electric uniform lock

Switches of control of activators of door locks

The control of activators of locks of all doors (including a back door) is made by means of the switches of keyboard type located on armrests driver's and forward passenger doors. For locking of locks press the right half of a key of the lock, for unlocking - on left.

Keyboard switch of control of door activators of the electric uniform lock.

Blocking of doors by means of switches or the remote control (DU) is not represented possible in the following cases:

  • The driver's door is open, and the key is not taken from the ignition lock.
  • The driver's door is open, and head headlights are not extinguished.

After blocking inclusion opening of back doors from within salon becomes possible only after an otpuskaniye of rychazhok of locks. Forward doors can be opened by means of internal handles.

Remote control of door activators of the uniform lock

By means of the DU panel of a door of the car can open at distance without application of a key.

DU panel activators of locks of doors.

The intake of the uniform lock is located in assembly of a lamp of illumination of salon, or in the central part of the top console. Having approached the car on sufficient distance (about 3 m), direct the DU panel to the receiver and press, depending on an objective the LOCK button (Locking) or UNLOCK (Unlocking) on its front panel.

Existence of an obstacle between the DU panel and the receiver of the uniform lock is capable to interfere with operation of activators, in any case considerably reduces the radius of operation of the panel. Average radius of action (in the absence of obstacles) makes DU about 3 m.

At the time of use of the DU panel on its front panel the control lamp confirming sufficiency of level of a charge of its batteries has to light up. Middle service life of batteries makes one year then it is necessary to establish instead of the sat-down two new CR1616 elements of 3 V. When performing replacement you monitor respect for polarity of installation of elements ("+" and "-" symbols are engraved on their cases).

The DU panel is rather vulnerable knot and can be put out of action at sharp stirring. Do not drop the panel and do not throw a bunch of keys by which it is attached.

The intake of the uniform lock provides reception of signals (and operation on them door activators) several (to four) DU panels. For programming of panels for the purpose of use them on your car make the following procedures:

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Unlock a driver's door and leave it open for all the time of performance of programming of panels.
  2. Transfer a rychazhok of the mechanical drive of the lock of the lock to position of LOCK.
  3. Insert a key into the lock of ignition and turn it in situation RUN/ON (see an illustration).
  4. Within the next 20 seconds direct the DU panel which is subject to programming to the receiver and press the LOCK button on its front panel. Hold the button pressed not less than 5 seconds during which the electronic module of the intake will be adjusted on an alarm code of this panel and will confirm a successful completion of control by operation of activators and unlocking of door locks.
  5. Upon completion of programming of the first panel, it is possible to prepare the receiver for reception of signals from additional (total number to 4). Within 20 seconds after completion of programming of the first panel transfer a rychazhok of the mechanical drive of a driver's door to position of LOCK and repeat the described procedure for the following panel.
  6. To keep the entered codes in memory of the receiver, it is necessary within 20 seconds after completion of programming of the last panel to switch off and again to include ignition. At this moment all earlier written down codes will be replaced by new.

At the time of unlocking of door locks activators of the uniform lock from the DU panel, and also when opening doors illumination of salon automatically joins. These lamps remain included within about 30 seconds, or until inclusion of ignition (turn of a key in position of ON - see an illustration).

Anticreeping alarm system

Sensitive sensors control a condition of doors (including a back door), a cowl, folding glass and in case of identification of signs of unauthorized penetration into the car provide inclusion of sound and visual alarm signals. Within the first 3 minutes the horn will publish buzz, and then head headlights and back marker lights will continue to blink within 15 minutes. The possibility of start of the engine will be blocked until shutdown of system.

Turning on of the alarm system is made at operation on locking of doors of activators of the uniform lock (from keyboard switches or from the DU panel). After shutdown of 30-second illumination of salon (see the item. "At the time of unlocking of door locks...") on the dashboard the control lamp of enforcement of the anticreeping alarm system begins to blink. The lamp will stop blinking about 15 seconds later, confirming a successful completion of installation of the alarm system. If a lamp during this period of time it is necessary to burn continuously, check whether the cowl is densely closed.

If the control lamp continues to burn continuously during use of the car, address for consultation in dealer office of the Chrysler company.

If at the time of unlocking of doors a key or on a signal from the DU panel the horn publishes triple buzz, it means that in your absence the system of the anticreeping alarm system worked. Check whether there are no signs of penetration into the car of strangers.

The system of the anticreeping alarm system is conceived as a vehicle security measure. Nevertheless there are situations in which there is its failure. If, remaining in the car, you incidentally makes locking of doors the keyboard switch or from the DU panel, the anticreeping alarm system will work in attempt of opening of a door for the handle from within. Involuntary shutdown of system happens when unlocking by a back door key. After the door is closed repeated initiation of the alarm system will not occur.

Activation of the anticreeping alarm system happens at the time of connection of the battery after completion of service or car repairs. At the same time all external lighting fixtures turn on in the blinking mode, and ignition is blocked. Shutdown of system is made by turn of a key in the lock of any of doors, or at operation of activators of the uniform lock from the DU panel.

Security systems and restrictions of movements of the driver and passengers

Safety of the persons which are in the car is one of the most important and responsible tasks of designers and developers. Of the knots designed to carry out this task seat belts of the driver, forward and back passengers, and also a safety cushion of the driver are main. Standard seat belts can be also used for fixing of special devices for transportation of babies and children of younger teenage age.

Pay close attention of information stated in this subsection - it will help you to achieve the maximum return from the security systems equipped in the car.

Seat belts

General information

Violation of the rules of use of seat belts repeatedly increases risk of receiving mutilations in case of emergency collision! Do not forget to fasten the seat belt and you watch that all passengers who are in your car were fastened.

Remember that the wiped or torn belt at the time of collision can tear, without having executed thereby the function. Regularly check a condition of tapes, buckles, anchor brackets and returnable devices of seat belts. The damaged components are subject to immediate replacement with knots of a standard design. Obligatory replacement of the worked belts has to be made also after accident.

Seat belts remind a control lamp on the car dashboard of need of fastening (see the Section Start of the Engine and driving), and also an alarm buzzer.

Remember that a solid experience of driving in any a case does not grant the right to neglect use of seat belts. Be fastened even in case of a trip on very short distance. Do not forget that not all participants of traffic are the disciplined and skilled drivers, and therefore the probability of collision takes place constantly, both far from the house, and on your native street.

Pilot studies prove that use of seat belts allows to reduce repeatedly risk of death of the driver and passengers of the vehicle during collision. The most serious injuries are usually suffered as a result of ejection of the person from interior of the car. Seat belts also allow to avoid it, and therefore, each participant of the movement, the driver or the passenger, has to be reliably and is properly fastened.

Belts of universal type

General information

The zone section of a universal seat belt has to be laid so that it covered the most powerful bones of a coxofemoral joint of a skeleton. The wrong putting on of a belt increases risk of traumatizing in case of collision! Strictly follow the instructions for putting on and fastening of seat belts given below.

Fastening by one belt at once two people inadmissibly in view of considerable decrease in efficiency of action of a belt. Besides, during collision both passengers can suffer as a result of blow the friend about the friend!

The front and back seats of the car located near doors are equipped with seat belts of universal type.

Each of universal belts consists of humeral and zone sections. Inertial type the returnable device provides blocking of a belt only at its sharp breakthrough (during emergency brake application or collision). At the same time the belt is freely taken up from a drum at its smooth pulling that allows to place conveniently it on the driver/passenger's body.

Instructions for use universal seat belts

When fastening a buckle not on the clamp the belt will not ensure to you due safety. The zone section of a belt can pass at the same time too highly, covering less strong bones of a skeleton. You watch that the belt was always buttoned in the lock, next to your seat.

Inadmissibly also too free placement of a belt. At sharp braking the body will manage to get acceleration, delivery for getting injured. You watch that the belt densely covered a trunk.

Do not pass humeral section of a belt near at hand at all - at the same time efficiency of its action also considerably decreases. Throw a belt through a thorax so that the maximum load at blow fell on the strongest bones of a skeleton.

Take the place in the car and close a door. Lean the elbows on a back and adjust a seat.

The buckle of a belt is located on a door rack directly over edge of a seatback. Grasp a buckle and extend a belt from the returnable device. Throw humeral section of a belt through a breast, and fast straighten on hips.

Extend a belt for a buckle from the returnable device.

If length of a belt allows, latch a buckle in the clamp lock mechanism located under a seat pillow from its opposite side.

Latch a buckle in the clamp lock.

Throw zone section of a belt through hips, under a stomach at once. To choose a weak point, pull for humeral section of a belt. For weakening of a belt incline a buckle and pull from yourself fast section. Dense landing of a belt reduces risk of slipping of a trunk under it at collision.

Too high laying of zone section of a belt is fraught with an internal injury at accident. Watch that the main loading fell on the strongest coxofemoral bones!

The humeral section of a belt has to settle down conveniently on a breast, without mentioning at the same time cervical department. The weak point will be chosen the returnable device automatically.

Twisting of a belt can lead to cuts of soft tissues of trunk during strong blow at collision. Watch that the belt was constantly straightened on a breast and hips!

For release from a seat belt press the PRESS button of the buckle clamp lock. The belt will automatically be winded on a drum of the returnable device. In case of need shift a buckle down a tape of a belt, having given it the chance to be winded completely.

Pregnant women when fastening a seat belt have to watch that its zone section settled down strictly on hips and not to allow a perekidyvaniye it through a stomach. In case of collision the main loading is necessary on the powerful bones of a coxofemoral joint best capable to protect a fruit.

When fastening by a universal belt of the teenager or undersized passenger you watch that it settled down in a seat vertically and periodically check density of laying of a belt.

Central zone belt of a back seat

At too weak tension of a zone belt or its too high laying the passenger during collision can slip under a belt and sustain injuries. You watch that the belt densely fitted hips, and the main loading in case of collision fell on strong bones of a coxofemoral belt of a skeleton.

The passenger sitting in the middle of a back seat has to be fastened by specially provided zone seat belt. For fastening of a belt latch a buckle in the clamp lock.

To extend a zone belt, incline its buckle and pull. Shortening of a belt is made by pulling up of the free end of a tape. You watch that the belt densely covered hips. Reach a comfortable position on a seat, densely nestle on a back and adjust belt length so that it densely covered your trunk.

Building of seat belts

Use of the extender of a seat belt without existence of strict need in it is dangerous! Use the extender only when there is not enough full length of a standard belt for fastening of the full passenger.

If the seat belt is too short for fastening of the stout person, in dealer office of the Chrysler company it is possible to buy the special extender allowing to increase a belt to the required size. The extender has to be used only when there is not enough length of a standard belt. In other cases disconnect it and put in a ware box or the luggage compartment of the car.

Devices for transportation of babies and children of younger age

Designers of the Chrysler company developed special devices for transportation in the car of babies and children of younger age. At installation of these devices on standard seats of the car strictly follow instructions of their manufacturers. In case of need consult at specialists of dealer office.

Safety cushion

General information

Existence in the car of a safety cushion does not exempt the driver from need to use a seat belt. Excessively close stay to the helmsman of wheels during inclusion of a pillow is fraught with getting injured!

For effective operation of a pillow between a steering wheel and the driver there has to be a sufficient free space. Sit down directly, conveniently put hands on a wheel, be fastened by a seat belt.

Cars of the considered brand are equipped with a safety cushion of the driver. The block is built in in a nave of a steering wheel and in case of strong front blow provides instant with filling by gas of the pillow made of dense material. Together with a seat belt and knee protection the pillow provides reliable protection of the driver at head-on collision of the car.

The block of a safety cushion is built in in a nave of a steering wheel.

The system of a safety cushion is equipped with the control lamp which is built in in an instrument guard If the lamp does not light up at inclusion of ignition, continues to burn after start of the engine or joins in time of the movement, the car should be driven away for performance of the corresponding diagnostics and necessary repair in a workshop of dealer office of the Chrysler company.

The main components of system of a safety cushion are: Blow sensors, Blok of self-diagnostics, the Control lamp, the activation Module with the pillow fixed on it, the Steering wheel and a column of a special design, the Connecting electrical wiring and Knee protection (see an illustration below).

Knee protection (it is specified by shooters).

Principle of functioning

Blow sensors

Sensors are located in a forward part of the car, and also in its salon and provide operation of the module of activation of a pillow when acceleration of frontal blow reaches a certain value. Sensors should not react on sliding, side and back blows, and also to a car turning. Inside sensors are equipped with the switches connected to the block of self-diagnostics of system and the module of activation of a pillow.

Self-diagnostics block

The block checks serviceability of functioning of electronic components of system every time when turning the ignition key in situation START or RUN/ON (see an illustration). All from listed in the item are among such components. "The main komponenty systems of a safety cushion...", except for a steering wheel, a column and knee protection.

At initial inclusion of ignition the block provides inclusion of a control lamp of a safety cushion on an instrument guard of the car for the period from 6 to 8 seconds. Then the lamp has to go out. If when performing diagnostics in system any violations are revealed, the lamp will continue to burn continuously, or will pass into the blinking mode.

Module of an activation/safety cushion

The module is located in the central part of a steering wheel. When the acceleration arising at head-on collision reaches sufficient value, sensors of blow give a signal on operations of the module. At the same time the gas generator of the module provides the emission of a large amount of nontoxical nitrogen providing instant inflation of the pillow made of strong material. The decorative cover in the central part of a steering wheel leans back and the pillow is developed, filling space between a wheel and the driver's body. All process lasts about 50 milliseconds that corresponds to about a half of time spent by the person for blinking for centuries. Almost at once nitrogen from a pillow is produced through the air vents directed towards the dashboard and therefore, operation of a pillow is not capable to prevent the driver in driving or to limit the sector of its review.

Consequences of operation of a safety cushion

Once the worked safety cushion will not provide protection to the driver at repeated collision! The module has to be replaced at the first opportunity in dealer office of the Chrysler company.

It is not necessary to fix to the car knives for sweeping of snow, the winch also other non-standard equipment which is not provided by a front design. Installation of such equipment it is capable to break serviceability of functioning of sensors of blow of system of a safety cushion!

Inflation of a pillow is made almost instantly on a signal of the sensors of blow reacting to frontal acceleration of a certain force. Almost immediately the pillow is blown off.

Insufficiently strong frontal blow should not lead to operation of a pillow therefore it is not necessary to consider lack of reaction of system a sign of its malfunction.

Operation of a safety cushion can have some collateral consequences:

  • The contact with nylon of a pillow of open sites of skin can lead to receiving the grazes similar in character, left on hands at burns got at friction about a kapron rope or as a result of the sliding falling on a carpet in the gym. They are not explained by contact with chemically hostile environment at all! Nevertheless it is not necessary to neglect medical assistance.
  • During production of nitrogen formation of the easy smoke which is actually representing the smallest particles of nontoxical by-products of gas generation is not excluded from a safety cushion. The contact of these particles with mucous membranes of a human body can cause the insignificant irritation which is easily removed when washing by clear cool water. For elimination of irritation in a throat or in a nose it is enough to take from salon the open air. In case of need ask for the help the doctor.
  • If after operation of a pillow the car is capable to continue the movement, the blown-off pillow should be put and jostled in a cavity in a stupichny part of a steering wheel.

Service of system of a safety cushion

Any sort of modification of components of system of a safety cushion are capable to lead to refusal of its operation at the right time! Do not try to change laying of an electrical wiring of system or to fix a decorative cover in the central part of different steering column by tapes and bandages. Do not make change to a car front design!

Under a steering column reliable protection of knees of the driver has to be established (see an illustration 1.48) - at all do not fix any additional equipment on its panels and do not use them for storage of foreign objects!

Do not make attempts of independent performance of repair any of system components at all! this work has to be charged to specialists of dealer office of the Chrysler company.

The list of the reasons for which it is necessary to address the specialists of dealer office of the Chrysler company understanding systems of safety cushions is given below:

  • The control lamp of a safety cushion does not light up on 6 ÷ 8 seconds at initial inclusion of ignition, or at once enters the blinking mode.
  • The lamp continues to burn continuously or in the blinking mode after end (6 ÷ 8) - the second control period
  • The lamp joins on constantly, or in the blinking mode during the movement of the car.

At refusal of a speedometer, tachometer and measuring instruments of working parameters of the engine the module of activation of a safety cushion also fails. In such situation it is necessary to try to replace a safety lock No. 22 in the assembly block.

Adjustment of provision of seats

Performance of adjustment of provision of a driver's seat during the movement of the car is dangerous! At a sharp push it is easy to lose control, besides correctness of laying of a seat belt easily can be broken. You make adjustment of provision of a seat before a start of motion.

Front seats with the manual drive (basic equipment)

Updating of the provision of a frame of a seat

To shift a seat at will forward or back, pull the bracket of management located in front under its pillow up. Release a bracket and, поерзав, make sure that the seat was reliably recorded in new situation.

Adjustment of provision of a frame of a front seat (the arrow showed a bracket of management).

Correction of an inclination of a back

During the movement the seatback should not be cast away too strongly when the seat belt ceases to nestle on your breast as in this case at collision the belt will not be capable to hold a body already. It is recommended to lean back on a seat only during the parking!

For correction of an inclination of a seatback lift the lever located assembly under a seat pillow and lean back together with a back in a comfortable position. Return of a back to vertical position happens automatically at procrastination of the lever up.

Adjustment of height of provision of head restraints

Head restraints provide reliable protection of cervical department of a backbone in case of blow in the car behind. The head restraint usually is established in extreme top situation.

The head restraint has to is established in extreme top situation.

Front seats with the electric drive on six degrees of freedom (an additional complete set)

In order to avoid damage of components of the electric drive do not put any objects under seats!

Control panels of the electric drive are located on the outer side of a frame of each seat, directly under its pillow.

Electrodriving front seats.

Adjustment of height of provision of a seat is carried out by means of the central switch - turn its rychazhok respectively up or down.

For seat shift forward or turn the same rychazhok (central) respectively forward or back back.

The inclination of a seatback is corrected by means of the rychazhkovy switch A.

For correction of an inclination of a pillow use the switch B.

Folding back seat of separate type

Both side backs of a back seat develop that allows to expand significantly in case of need the volume of the luggage compartment.

For simplification of the procedure of folding of backs of a back seat, shift front seats forward against the stop, and transfer their backs to vertical position. The description of the procedure of folding of a back seat is given below.

Each of pillows of a back seat is equipped fixed in its back part special pedely, having pulled for which, the pillow can be lifted, having pressed to a back of a front seat.

The pillow nestles closely on a back of a front seat (on an insert location of a loop is shown).

For additional expansion of volume of the luggage compartment of a pillow of a back seat can be taken. Turn a pillow a floor a corner 45 °. If now to pull a pillow up, its arms will be released from the clamps and the pillow can be removed. Installation is made upside-down.

For removal of head restraints from backs of a back seat turn clockwise the special blocking couplings. Now, to take a head restraint, will be to pull it vertically up from the directing nests enough.

Head restraints of back seats are equipped with the blocking couplings.

After extraction head restraints can be fixed in the special nests provided in the put pillows - nests are also equipped with the blocking couplings, the head restraints which are reliably fixing probes.

Find from below from the outer side of the corresponding seatback a special control lever, delay the lever back and put a back forward.

Location of the lever of an otpuskaniye of a back of a back seat.

For fixing of back universal seat belts at the put back seat on their humeral sections and side panels of finishing of salon special clamps of loopy and hook type are provided.

For return of a back seat to the initial working condition lift its backs and latch them in vertical position. If the freight placed in the luggage compartment does not allow to lift completely a back, it will be difficult to return a pillow to a starting position. The handle of the lock will not allow to put completely a pillow - such safety lock guarantees stability of fixing of a back to a seat at installation on it of device for transportation of children.

Electrodriving window regulators

In order to avoid children's overindulgence the electric drive of window regulators functions only at the included ignition (a key in situation ON/RUN). Each of side windows is equipped with the individual control panel with the switch of keyboard type. For lowering of glass it is necessary to press a key down, for rise - up. The driver's door is equipped with the universal control panel allowing to operate with window regulators of all door windows.

External rear-view mirrors

General information

The cars and other objects reflected in convex glass of the right mirror look smaller and remote than if glass was flat. Before making maneuver, being reconstructed in the right row check a condition of the road behind yourself on an internal mirror, trying to rely not too on reflection in the right side!

Correctly adjusted side rear-view mirror has to be directed precisely to the middle of the next lane and slightly block the sector of the review of an internal mirror. Updating of the provision of the mirror which is not equipped with the electric drive is made manually by a turn of a frame of its glass.

External mirrors with heating (an additional complete set)

Food on heating elements of mirrors moves at the same time with inclusion of heating of back glass.

The combined switch of control of the electric drive of correction of the provision of external rear-view mirrors is located at the left below on the car dashboard. For updating of the provision of the left mirror establish the central rychazhok of the switch in situation L, right - in situation R. Adjustment of an inclination of mirrors is carried out by means of four command keys.

The combined switch of control of the electric drive of correction of the provision of external rear-view mirrors.

Cowl lock otpuskaniye lever

Leaky closed cowl can unexpectedly open during the movement of the car, having blocked the driver the sector of the review! You watch that the lock latch reliably worked at a cowl zakhlopyvaniye.

For opening of a cowl pull on yourself the lever A located at the left under the dashboard. Then go out of the car, push a hand under slightly risen cowl and pull on yourself the safety handle of a latch of V. Podnimite and prop up a cowl.

The cowl lock otpuskaniye lever in interior of the car (A) and the latch handle under a cowl (In).

When lifting a cowl there is an automatic turning on of the lighting lamp of a motive compartment.

Parking brake

Try not to leave children in the car unguarded. In advance warn them that to touch the lever of the parking brake, as well as the handle of gear shifting it is dangerous!

Do not lock children and pets in the car left in the sun - the probability of receiving heatstroke is too high!

To cock the parking brake, strongly pull the handle of the lever of its drive located in the central console of the car between front seats up. If the parking brake is cocked at the included ignition, on an instrument guard the control lamp has to light up.

The control lamp only confirms the fact of raising of the parking brake, without reflecting the brake effort developed at the same time in any way.

Before leaving the car parked on the inclined section of the road make sure of reliability of raising of the parking brake and do not forget to transfer AT to situation P / to include RKPP on the first transfer. Make sure that the transfer case is not in neutral situation, otherwise the car is not insured from rolling under a bias regardless of the provision of transmission.

At the parking of the car on the inclined section of the road it is important to cock the parking brake earlier than to start switching of AT in situation P, otherwise the mechanism of blocking of transmission will appear under loading and the selector lever will be difficult to be switched then to transfer.

Do not forget to cock without fail the parking brake before leaving the car.

For an otpuskaniye of the parking brake slightly pull the lever up, then press the button located in a face part of its handle and completely lower the lever down. Make sure that the control lamp on an instrument guard went out - the movement with the cocked parking brake can lead to failure of brake mechanisms.

If the car is equipped with the automatic regulator of back brake mechanisms, authors of this manual do not recommend to the owner to make independently any adjustments - such responsible work has to be charged to specialists of dealer office of the Chrysler company.

Recommendations about a running in of the new car

All settings of the engine, necessary for normal operation of the car, are made industrially by specialists of the Chrysler company. In order that in the maximum degree to prolong service life of the car and to achieve high efficiency of return of the engine, throughout several hundred km/miles of a run it is necessary to follow some special rules. The list of rules and restrictions which have to be observed the car running in period is provided in the following points:

  • Regularly check the level of cooling liquid and motive oil. Try in time to reveal signs of an overheat of various components of the car. In the period of a running in the engine tends to consume slightly more fuel and oils therefore be not upset insufficient profitability of their expense throughout the first 1 900 km (1 200 miles) of a run.
  • Before including transfer after start of the cold engine let's it get warm within at least 15 seconds.
  • Throughout the first 160 km (100 miles) of a run avoid the movement with a speed over 80 km/h (50 miles/h), further to a mark of 800 km (500 miles) in the counter of the odometer try not to gather the speed over 88 km/h (55 miles/h). Avoid full opening of a butterfly valve and try to reduce whenever possible the periods of operation of the engine on single turns.
  • In the period of a running in the engine does not need filling with any special oil. There is no need as well performance of replacement of oil and an oil filter earlier, than it is stipulated by the schedule of routine maintenance of the car (see the Head Nastroyki and routine maintenance). It is not necessary to add any additives as they can prevent normal extra earnings of piston rings to engine oil.

Filling of the car with fuel

For opening of the hatch of a jellied mouth of the fuel tank pull the lever located on a car floor between a driver's seat and a threshold of the right door up. On the lever there is an inscription FUEL DOOR and the image of the fuel pump is applied.

The full volume of the fuel tank makes 87.4 l.

Requirements imposed to a fuel grade

The design of feed and control systems the engine provides good profitability of fuel consumption in case of filling of the car with high-quality unleaded fuel.

Use for gas station of the car only gasoline with octane number not lower than 87, determined by a method of calculation of arithmetic-mean value between the sizes determined research and motor in the ways: N = (R + M)/2, or, in the Russian designations: N = (AI + A)/2.

Periodic emergence of an easy detonation in the engine during the work it on low turns should not cause special concern. In case of a strong detonation on high turns it is necessary to address to dealer office of the Chrysler company.

Damages of the engine owing to a strong detonation do not get on protection of guarantee certificates.

Except that gasoline has to be unleaded and have octane number not below the stipulated value, it is recommended to use the fuel containing such additives as inhibitor of corrosion and means for increase in stability of turns of the engine. Use of such additives allows to increase efficiency of return of the engine and cuts its consumption. Usually unleaded fuel of the class Premium already contains such additives.

Use of low-grade fuel can lead to emergence of such problems as the complicated start of the engine, its spontaneous stops and violation of stability of turns. In case of any of the listed symptoms, try to replace fuel brand before there are more serious problems.

Some grades of fuel represent a combination of the unleaded gasoline mixed with such oxygen-containing additives as alcohol and methyl - tetrabutyl (MTVE) and ethyl - tetrabutyl (ETVE) air. At the same time the type and quantity of the oxidizer added to fuel is important. For gas station of the cars considered in this manual the following combinations are admissible:

  • Mixed with MTVE in the ratio it is not higher than 15/85 unleaded gasoline.
  • 17/83 mix ETVE with unleaded combustible is (not above).
  • The mix containing 10% additive to gasoline of ethyl (drinking) alcohol.

Added to unleaded gasoline of methyl alcohol can vary from 3% and above.

Use of the fuel containing methyl alcohol on cars of the considered brand inadmissibly can also bring to difficulties at start of the engine and to failure of sensitive components of a power supply system!


The problems connected with use of fuel with additives of methyl alcohol are not included in the list of the refusals listed in guarantee certificates of the Chrysler company.

Control systems of the engine

General information

In order to avoid violation of serviceability of functioning of a power supply system try to follow the following rules:

  • Do not use the ethylated gasoline having the increased content of lead for gas station of the car. Violation of this requirement is fraught with decrease in efficiency of return of the engine, failure of components of systems of decrease in toxicity of the fulfilled gases, and also violation of guarantee certificates of the Chrysler company.
  • Some refusals of power supply systems and ignition can lead to an overheat of the catalytic converter. Emergence of a pungent smell of ashes and light smoke can be a symptom of the demanding urgent repair of engine failure. Try to contact representatives of dealer office of the Chrysler company immediately.
  • If operation of the vehicle assumes the raised loads of the engine, and also at the movement with full load in the conditions of arid and hot climate the car should be fuelled unleaded the class Premium, allowing to avoid a detonation. If the detonation nevertheless arises, try to lower load of the engine in order to avoid failure of pistons.
  • It is not recommended to add to additive fuel for increase in octane number of fuel - the most part of such additives contains methanol and is capable to lead to noticeable decrease in efficiency of return of the engine and violation of guarantee certificates of the Chrysler company.
  • Try not to inhale the fulfilled engine gases - they contain extremely toxic monoxide of the carbon (SO) capable to lead to a serious poisoning of an organism. Do not allow long operation of the engine in the enclosed space. You suppress the engine during long parking. During short parking with the working engine include at full capacity system of ventilation of salon.
  • Decrease in content in the fulfilled SO gases is promoted by a regularity of performing procedures of routine maintenance of the car (see the Head Nastroyki and routine maintenance). Through the required intervals of a time/distance in kilometers lift the car above the ground and check a condition of components of system of production of the fulfilled gases. In time eliminate the revealed defects. At operation of the car with the damaged components of system of production of the fulfilled gases open all side windows and include at full capacity ventilation of salon.
  • Before a start of motion check density of closing of a door of a back and its folding glass (at the corresponding complete set of the car).

Catalytic converter

Violation of service conditions of the engine can lead to failure of the expensive catalytic converter. In case of any disturbing symptoms, in particular such as admissions of ignition or decrease in efficiency of return of the engine it is necessary to make diagnostics and service of the car immediately. Its further operation can lead to failure of the catalytic converter!

The cars equipped with the catalytic converter are subject to filling only with unleaded fuel. High content of lead in ethylated fuel is capable to lead to noticeable decrease in efficiency of the converter and its bystry exit out of operation. Under usual service conditions of the car the catalytic converter does not need regular service. Nevertheless it is necessary to pay attention to observance of the correct settings of the engine.

Violation of the international sealing of adjusting devices of systems of decrease in toxicity is pursued by the law!

Do not park the car over easily flammable objects, on the sites overgrown with a dry grass or the filled-up fallen leaves.

At long operation of not adjusted engine there can be a characteristic pungent smell which is usually accompanying rubber curing process. This smell is a sign of a serious overheat of the catalytic converter. The car has to be immediately stopped, the engine is killed and cooled. Then without any delay it is necessary to make adjustment of the engine.

To minimize probability of failure of the catalytic converter try to follow the following rules:

  • You do not suppress the engine and do not interrupt sparking in cylinders at the transmission established on transfer, and also during the movement of the car.
  • Do not start the engine by towage or pushing of the car.
  • Do not allow functioning of the engine on single turns with the wire disconnected from the VV spark plug.
  • Avoid long operation of the engine on single turns in case of violation of their stability.
  • Do not allow full production of the fuel which is contained in a gasoline tank.
