Management of RKPP and transfer case

The special protection device provides that the driver cannot casually be switched from the 5th transfer to a backing. Before the lever of gear shifting can be included on a backing, it should be established in neutral situation.


Movement with a drive on four wheels (all-wheel drive cars)

These cars are equipped with a constant drive on four wheels with blocking of a transfer case.

Blocking of a transfer case is switched off

The car can move in the majority of road conditions with the switched-off blocking of a transfer case.

Blocking of a transfer case is included

At the included blocking of a transfer case lobbies and back wheels are connected with each other.

Include blocking of a transfer case only to release the car, zavyazshy in dirt etc. Consider the following instructions to improve dynamic characteristics and force of draft of tires, and to reduce fuel consumption and wear of rubber.

Inclusion and switching off of blocking of a transfer case

Blocking of a transfer case copes with the help of the electric preselektorny switch, at the expense of what blocking of a transfer case joins mechanically or switched off with a small delay to reduce pushes when switching and to increase reliability.

"Inclusion" When a key will be latched, the indicator while process of switching will not end starts to blink. After that the indicator starts to burn constantly. As the following confirmation of the completion of process of switching the acoustic signal while the indicator will not stop to blink sounds and will not start to burn constantly.
"Switching off" Press a key that it отщелкнулась, and blocking was switched off. After the completion of process of switching the indicator will go out.

Before parking the car, blocking of a transfer case should be switched off, key switching in the situation "Switching off" as blocking of a transfer case cannot be switched off on the standing car.

Never include blocking of a transfer case under following conditions as differently a kinetic chain (forward and back differential, the transfer case) can be damaged.

If the spare wheel is established

As the spare wheel less usual wheel, a difference arising because of it among turns cannot be compensated at the included blocking of a transfer case.

If antisliding chains are established

(You can, however include blocking of a transfer case for short time for simplification of a start of motion under trying conditions).

Put on antisliding chains only forward wheels.

If the car is towed with the raised wheels (forward or back).

If at the included blocking of a transfer case of a brake are exposed to strong influence.

At strong braking lobbies and back wheels can be blocked, so the car can bring.

For this reason have on brakes no too strong influence that wheels were not blocked.

Normal movement on dry roads

Do not include blocking if you move with high speed on автобану or the highway of local value.

If you make abrupt turn, for example, at a parking or in a city cycle

In these conditions of a wheel can rotate with different speeds. At the included blocking of a transfer case of the tire can be erased because of it about a road surface.

  • Consider that at fast movement on the crude road forward wheels can lose coupling with the road. Hydroplaning is appreciable on cars with a forward drive by sudden increase in number of turns of the engine. Therefore choose a high-speed mode according to road conditions.
  • Never include blocking of a transfer case when the car is at the verifying roller stand (at check of brakes of the car).
  • Otherwise the transfer case will try to level a difference in speed between wheels which are put in action by verifying rollers, and wheels which stand on the earth.
  • For car check at the roller verifying stand the driveshaft should be weakened and blocking of a transfer case is included.
