Ignition lock, transmission and темпостат

Switch of ignition and blocking of a steering column

Never take out a key during the movement of the car as it will lead to blocking of a steering wheel and loss of driving. Do not leave a key in the provision of "ON" if the engine does not work. At the same time the accumulator can be discharged, and ignition can be damaged.


At a car complete set system of blocking of the engine, at taking out of a key the system of blocking of the engine will automatically work.


The switch of ignition and blocking the helmsman of a column is located to the right of a steering column (address an accompanying illustration).

The description of position of the ignition key in the lock is given below.

"START" – inclusion of a starter. The key will return to the provision of "ON" at an otpuskaniye.

"ON" – turning on of the engine and service equipment of all types. This normal situation when driving.

"ASS" – auxiliary devices, such as the radio receiver, work, however the engine is switched off.

"LOCK" – the engine is switched off, and the steering wheel is blocked. The key can be taken out only in this situation. It is necessary to press a key to turn it from the provision of "ASS" in the provision of "LOCK". If the key is taken out, the system of blocking of the engine will be automatically installed. At start of the engine the key can seem got stuck in the provision of "LOCK" (blocking). For its release from this situation at first be convinced that the key is pressed against the stop, and then slightly rotate a steering wheel, carefully turning a key.

Automatic transmission

The selector lever, switches of the AT modes of the Toyota Land Cruiser model and their description is given in an accompanying illustration.

 

Governing bodies of transmission of the Lexus LX models of 470 cm in Governing bodies and methods of safe operation of the car.

When using the regulator of a tempostat, even at inclusion of the lowering transfer by switching off of the raising transfer, braking by the engine will not be carried out as it is involved темпостат.

System of distribution of torque between driving wheels

System of blocking of interaxal differential

Use the lever of the choice of the mode and the switch of blocking of interaxal differential (address an accompanying illustration) for the choice of the following modes of the transfer case and interaxal differential.

"N" (position of the raising transfers)

The position "H" of the lever of the regulator of the four-wheel drive provides the mode of blocking or an unblocking of interaxal differential depending on a position of the corresponding button.

Use this situation at the unblocked interaxal differential for normal driving on all types of roads, from dry roads with a hard coating to wet roads, and also roads covered with ice or snow. This position provides big economy, more silent driving, the smallest wear and the best driving.

Use this situation at the blocked interaxal differential for increase in draft, at feeling of loss of power, for example, when sliding wheels in the mode "H" with the unblocked interaxal differential.

"N" (neutral situation)

To wheels it is not transferred any power. Use this position only at control of the winch or other equipment. The car has to be stopped.

"L" (the provision of the lowering transfers, interaxal differential it is blocked)

Use this situation for the maximum power and draft. Use the provision "L" under trying conditions of driving when the car badly gives in to management even in the mode "H" with the blocked interaxal differential.

Inclusion of a control lamp of blocking of interaxal differential demonstrates blocking activation.

Keep in mind that if not To/L dies away when pressing the button of blocking of interaxal differential, conduct the car directly at acceleration or delay or be developed.

Procedure of switching

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. For switching between the modes of an unblocking and blocking of a position "H" press the button of blocking of interaxal differential.
2. For switching between H and L broadcasts stop the car, install the transmission in situation "N" and switch a control lever by the drive to four wheels.

Never switch the drive regulator lever to four wheels in case of sliding of the car. Before carrying out switching, stop sliding or spinning of the car.

System of blocking of forward and back differentials

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. The system of blocking of forward and back differentials is intended for use only in case of pro-slipping of wheels in a ditch or on the slippery or uneven road. This system is effective in case of slipping of one of wheels or one right or one left couple of wheels.

Do not use blocking of back differential in the conditions differing from given above. Otherwise great efforts of steering and careful management when performing turns will be required. Especially use of forward differential as addition to back extremely will complicate steering and can lead to a car drift during acceleration or braking of the engine.

2. For blocking of back differential press and turn the switch clockwise, yet you will not hear click. If it does not help, turn the switch clockwise against the stop to block forward differential in addition to back.
3. On forget to stop the car before performance of blocking of differential.
4. For simple blocking turn the switch of blocking and carefully press an accelerator pedal.
5. If the switch is in the included situation, the control lamp will blink. Wait several seconds until the system finishes operation. After the differential will be blocked, the control lamp will stop blinking and will constantly burn.
6. If the back differential is blocked, the anti-blocking brake system does not work. If at this time the control lamp of "ABS" lights up, it is normal.

Do not block differential until wheels do not stop slipping. Otherwise the car can move in the unforeseen direction if the differential is blocked that can lead to possible damage of components of blocking of differential. You do not drive the car at a speed over 8 km/h if the differential is blocked.

7. To unblock differential, turn the switch against the stop counterclockwise.
8. Unblock differential as soon as the car starts.
9. For a simple unblocking slightly turn a steering wheel in any direction at the movement of the car.
10. If the differential is brought out of gearing, the control lamp will go out.
11. The differential will be also unblocked when switching the lever of the regulator of the drive to four wheels in situation "H". Do not forget to install the switch in the switched-off situation after use of this function.
12. For check of an indicator lamp turn the ignition key in the provision of "ON", however do not start the engine.

System of blocking of back differential

The system of blocking of back differential is intended for use only in case of pro-slipping of wheels in a ditch or on the slippery/uneven road.

This system of blocking of differential is effective in case of slipping of one of back wheels.

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. For blocking of back differential press and turn the switch clockwise, yet you will not hear click.
2. Do not forget to stop the car before performance of blocking of differential.
3. For simple blocking turn the switch of blocking and carefully press an accelerator pedal.
4. If the switch is in the included situation, the control lamp will blink. Wait several seconds until the system finishes operation. After the differential will be blocked, To/L will stop blinking and will constantly burn.
5. If the back differential is blocked, the ABS system does not work. If at this time lights up To/L the ABS system, it is normal.

Do not block differential until wheels do not stop slipping. Otherwise the car can move in the unforeseen direction if the differential is blocked that can lead to the road accident. It can lead to possible damage of components of blocking of differential also. You do not drive the car at a speed over 8 km/h if the differential is blocked.

6. To unblock differential, turn the switch against the stop counterclockwise.
7. Unblock differential as soon as the car starts.
8. For a simple unblocking slightly turn a steering wheel in any direction at the movement of the car.
9. If the differential is brought out of gearing, the control lamp will go out.
10. The differential will be also unblocked if you switch the drive regulator lever to four wheels to situation "H". Do not forget to install the switch in the switched-off situation after use of this function.
11. For check of an indicator lamp turn the ignition key in the provision of "ON", however do not start the engine.

Control system of speed (Tempostat)

Function of speed control allows to conduct the car at a desirable speed over 40 km/h even if to take away a leg from an accelerator pedal.

Speed can be supported at higher or low level within the characteristic of the engine though little change of speed can happen upon transition to the raising or lowering transfer. On steep slopes there can be a bigger change of speed therefore it is better to conduct the car without resorting to a tempostat.

For ensuring the maximum control over the movement of the car do not use темпостат when driving in the conditions of heavy traffic of transport either under the changing traffic conditions or on slippery (wet, covered with ice or snow) roads, and also at strong wind. Avoid increase in speed at the movement down descent. If car speed too bystry, disconnect темпостат and pass to the lowering transfer for braking use with the engine for the purpose of delay.

Inclusion and switching off of system

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

For management tempostaty press the CRUISE ON OFF button. At the same time the burning control lamp on the control panel will show that now it is possible to establish the desirable speed of the car. By the second pressing the system will be switched completely off.

In order to avoid casual inclusion of a tempostat you hold the CRUISE ON OFF switch switched off if you do not use темпостат.

Choice of cruiser speed

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Accelerate the car to the required speed, press the regulator in the direction of "SET/COAST" down and release it, the high-speed mode further chosen will be supported tempostaty automatically.
2. If speed is not satisfactory, move the lever for more bystry speed up or move for lower speed down. Each push-up changes installation of speed to 1.6 km/h. After installation of speed it is possible to take away a leg from an accelerator pedal.
3. In need of acceleration for example, when overtaking clamp an accelerator pedal with a sufficient force to exceed the established speed. If to release a pedal, the car will return to the speed established before acceleration performance.

Cancellation of the chosen high-speed mode

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. It is possible to cancel the chosen high-speed mode having pressed a brake pedal, or having pulled the lever in the direction of "CANCEL" and having released it.
2. If the speed of the car goes down lower than 40 km/h, the chosen high-speed mode will be automatically cancelled.
3. If the speed of the car falls more than 16 km/h below the chosen value, cruiser installations will also be automatically cancelled.
4. If cancellation of the chosen high-speed mode happens on any to other, excellent from listed above, the reasons, check the car at the representative of Toyota or Lexus to the first opportunity.

Return to the cruiser mode after compulsory reduction of speed

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Press the lever in the direction of "RES/ACC" up and take it in this situation. Release the lever when desirable speed is reached. At that time so far the lever will be pressed, the car will gradually gather speed.
2. However it is to return rather to higher speed, it is necessary to accelerate the car course, and then to press the lever down in the direction of "SET/COAST".

Return to the cruiser mode after compulsory acceleration

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Press the lever in the direction of "SET/COAST" down and take it in this situation. Release the lever when desirable speed is reached. While the lever will be pressed, the car will gradually reduce speed.
2. However it is to return rather to lower speed, it is necessary to reduce speed of the car, and then to press the lever down in the direction of "SET/COAST".
3. Even if to switch off the raising transfer at the included tempostat, braking by the engine will not be carried out because it is not switched off темпостат. For reduction of speed of the car return to slower speed by means of the lever of a tempostat or pressing of a brake pedal. If the brake pedal is used, темпостат it will be switched off.

Renewal of previously established speed

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. If previously established speed was cancelled by switching of the lever of the regulator, or pressing of a pedal of a brake, then when pressing the lever up in the direction of "RES/ACC" the speed established before cancellation will be restored.
2. However if the speed of the car falls lower than 40 km/h, previously established speed will not be resumed.

The warning signal of malfunction in system of a tempostat

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. If the control lamp of "CRUISE" on the control panel blinks when using a tempostat, press the CRUISE ON OFF button for switching off of system, and then press the button for inclusion of system again.
2. In case there is one of the following actions, in a tempostata there are malfunctions.

  • The control lamp does not burn.
  • The control lamp blinks again.
  • The control lamp dies away after highlighting.

3. In this case address the representative of Toyota for check of the car.
