The arrangement of control lamps on an instrument guard depends on model of the car and engine execution. The pictograms presented in the present description are available on the corresponding control lamps.

Cистема of inflatable safety cushions

The control lamp burns after ignition inclusion within several seconds. On cars with the disconnected inflatable pillow for the forward passenger the control lamp blinks within about 12 seconds.

If the lamp does not go out or during movement will start to burn, blink or flicker, the system of inflatable safety cushions is faulty. Such system should be urgently checked in the service enterprise Volkswagen.

The turn index at movement with the trailer

The control lamp blinks together with turn indexes on the car and the trailer.

In case on the car or on the trailer one of lamps of indexes of turn failed, the control lamp does not blink.

Back antifog lamp

After inclusion of a back antifog lamp the control lamp lights up.

Lay fires

The control lamp burns at included lay fires.

Electronic anticreeping system

At ignition inclusion automatically there is an inquiry of a code of the ignition key. Carrying out comparison of data proves to be true a blinking of a control lamp.

In case not coordinated key is used, character of a blinking of a control lamp – this blinking with short breaks changes now. It is impossible to use the car.

Turn index

Depending on from what party of the car the turn indexes blink, the left or right control lamp at the same time blinks. If one of lamps of indexes of turn failed, the control lamp blinks twice quicker, than usually. It does not occur at trailer towage.

Driving beam

The control lamp burns at the included driving beam and when giving a light signal.

Prestarting heater (only for cars with the diesel engine)

At the cold engine the control lamp lights up at situation inclusion at movement ("Ignition is included").

If the control lamp thus did not light up, therefore, there is a malfunction in a prestarting heater – the qualified help is required.

After the control lamp went out, it is necessary to start the engine at once.

At the engine, heated-up to working temperature, the control lamp does not light up – it is possible to start the engine immediately.

If during movement of the car equipped with the diesel engine, there will be violations in management of operation of the engine about what the blinking control lamp will let know, the engine should be checked urgently at the service enterprise Volkswagen.

Antiprobuksovochny system (ASR)

The control lamp lights up at inclusion of ignition and should go out approximately in 2 seconds.

The lamp blinks at movement during operation of antiprobuksovochny system.

At the switched-off antiprobuksovochny system or at violation in its work the control lamp burns constantly.

As the antiprobuksovochny system works together with anti-blocking system and protivobuksovochny system, at violations in work of anti-blocking system also control lamp of antiprobuksovochny system ASR burns.

System of stabilization (ESP)

The control lamp lights up at inclusion of ignition and should go out approximately in 2 seconds.

The electronic system of stabilization includes also antiprobuksovochny system.

The lamp blinks at movement during operation of electronic system of stabilization.

At the switched-off system or at violation in its work the control lamp burns constantly.

As the system of stabilization works together with anti-blocking and antiprobuksovochny systems, at failure of anti-blocking system burns as well a lamp of system of stabilization.

Anti-blocking system (ABS)

The control lamp warns about malfunction in anti-blocking system and in protivobuksovochny system.

Anti-blocking system (ABS)

The control lamp lights up after inclusion of ignition or during engine start for some seconds. It dies away after the completion of process of automatic check of operability of system.

If the control lamp at inclusion of ignition does not light up, after several seconds after inclusion of ignition does not die away or lights up during movement, anti-blocking system not as it should be.

In the presence of malfunction in ABS probably following:

 – if during movement only one control lamp of anti-blocking system burns, the car can be still braked by one normally functioning working brake system without anti-blocking system. It is necessary to address as soon as possible in the service enterprise Volkswagen;
 – if the control lamp of anti-blocking system burns together with a control lamp of brake system, it means that there is a malfunction not only in ABS, but also in brake system. It is necessary to expect changes in normal work of brake system.


Prevention

After fire of both control lamps it is necessary to stop and check immediately level of brake liquid in a tank. If level is lower than "MIN" mark, to continue movement it is impossible – the qualified help is necessary.

If level of brake liquid in norm, malfunction in ABS is possible. Owing to violation of normal work of ABS when braking probably premature blocking of back wheels. Under certain conditions it can conduct to failure of back brake mechanisms.

It is necessary to follow with the increased care in the next service enterprise Volkswagen for malfunction elimination.


Protivobuksovochny system (EDS)

The Protivobuksovochny system (system of blocking of differential with electronic control) works together with ABS. To malfunction in противобуксовочнои to system points fire of a control lamp of ABS. It is necessary to address rather whenever possible in the service enterprise Volkswagen.

Parking brake

At the tightened parking brake and the included ignition the control lamp burns. It should go out, when the parking brake is released.

Category of the storage battery

The control lamp lights up at ignition inclusion. It should go out after start of the engine.

The drive of the generator is carried out by means of a durable maple belt with ribs.

If during movement the control lamp lights up, it is necessary to stop, switch off the engine and to check a condition of a poliklinovy belt.

In case the tension of a belt weakened or the belt is broken off, to continue movement it is impossible – the pump of system of cooling of the engine is not put any more in action. The condition of a belt should be checked, the belt should be if necessary replaced.

If the control lamp burns, and the belt of a drive of the pump of system of cooling of the engine did not weaken and is not torn, it is possible to continue movement to the next service enterprise Volkswagen.

As the storage battery is continuously discharged, it is necessary to switch off everything those consumers of the electric power which inclusion is unessential.

Seat belts

The control lamp (only on cars for export to the separate countries) lights up after ignition inclusion approximately for 6 seconds as a reminder on need to put on seat belts.

If seat belts are not put on, after inclusion of ignition the sound signal sounds. It abates after putting on of seat belts or approximately in 6 seconds.

Temperature of cooling liquid cooling liquid / level

The control lamp burns at ignition inclusion some seconds: working capacity check.

In case the control lamp does not die away further or at movement starts to burn or blink, it testifies or to too high temperature of cooling liquid, or about too low level of cooling liquid in cooling system. As in addition prevention three times are given a sound signal.

It is necessary to stop the car, to switch off the engine and to check level of cooling liquid. If necessary to add cooling liquid.


Prevention

When do not open a cowl when you see that from a motor compartment there is a steam or cooling liquid – danger of receiving a burn follows. Wait until steam or a leak cooling liquid will cease to leave.

Watch that your hands did not get to a zone of rotation of the fan! The fan can suddenly start to rotate – even at the switched-off ignition!

To avoid a burn at high temperature of cooling liquid, you should consider the following: be attentive when opening a stopper of a broad tank of system of cooling. At the hot engine in cooling system an elevated pressure. Therefore before an otvertyvaniye of a stopper of a broad tank it is necessary to allow to the engine to cool down; for protection of the person and hands against steam and more hotly cooling liquid cover a radiator stopper with rather big piece of a dense obtirochny material.

Watch that cooling liquid did not get on hot details of system of release or other hot elements of a design. The low-temperature additive containing in cooling liquid can ignite.


If level of cooling liquid in norm, violation in work of system of cooling can be caused by malfunction of the fan. Check a safety lock of the fan and if necessary replace it.

If the control lamp does not die away, though level of cooling liquid normal and a fan safety lock исправнен, it is not necessary to continue movement – the qualified help is necessary.

In case the reason is covered in malfunction of the fan and provided that level of cooling liquid in norm, and the control lamp went out, it is possible to continue movement to the next service enterprise Volkswagen. To use for liquid cooling a stream of counter air, it is necessary to avoid engine and movement idling with very small speed.

Pressure of oil in the engine

The control lamp lights up for some seconds at ignition inclusion for working capacity check.

If the control lamp does not die away, as the additional prevention 3 times a sound signal sound. It is impossible to start the engine! It is necessary to check oil level in the engine and if necessary to add oil.

If at movement the control lamp lights up or blinks, at frequency of rotation of the engine more than 1500 rpm as the additional prevention 3 times sound a sound signal. It is necessary to stop, switch off the engine, to check level of oil and if necessary oil to add.

If the control lamp blinks, in spite of the fact that oil level in the engine normal to continue movement it is impossible. The engine also should not idle. The qualified help is necessary.

In case during movement the engine works at excessively low turns (frequency of rotation lower than frequency of rotation of idling), can to happen so that the control lamp of pressure of oil will light up. Then it is necessary to increase frequency of rotation of the engine a pedal of an accelerator or to pass to lower transfer.


Prevention

The control lamp of pressure of oil is not a control device of level of oil in the engine! Therefore it is necessary to check regularly oil level, it is best of all at each fuelling.


Brake system

The control lamp burns at too small level of brake liquid.

Ignition should be thus included.

On cars without a separate control lamp of lay brake system the control lamp of working brake system burns as well at the tightened lever of lay brake system.
The lamp dies away at a lever otpuskaniye.

On cars with anti-blocking system (ABS) the control lamp lights up for some seconds after inclusion of ignition or engine start-up. At ABS failure the control lamp of brake system burns together with a control lamp of ABS.
Prevention

If after engine start the control lamp does not go out or during movement will light up, it testifies to too low level of brake liquid in a tank. Immediately it is necessary to stop. To continue movement it is impossible – the qualified help is necessary.

If the control lamp of brake system burns together with a control lamp of ABS, violation in ABS work is possible. When braking blocking of back wheels is possible. Under certain conditions it can conduct to failure of back brake mechanisms.

It is necessary to follow with the increased care in the next service enterprise Volkswagen for malfunction elimination.


Liquid level for stekloomyvatel

The control lamp lights up at too low level of liquid for обмыва a windshield in a tank.

Fuel stock

The control lamp lights up, when the stock of fuel goes down approximately to 8 liters.
