1.1.36. Parking brake

GENERAL INFORMATION

For turning on of the parking brake it is necessary to pull rather strongly up the lever (it is specified by an arrow) parking brake. In the presence of a big bias of the road it is necessary to include in addition the 1st transfer or to establish a mode of lay blocking of an automatic transmission.

The lever of the parking brake always is necessary for cocking rather strongly in order that subsequently it was impossible to move with parking brake not up to the end released through an oversight.

At the tightened parking brake and the included ignition the control lamp of brake system lights up.

For an otpuskaniye of the parking brake the lever a few to pull up, to press the button of blocking and completely to wring out the lever down.


Prevention

In order to avoid an uncontrollable skatyvaniye of the car you after a full stop of the car should tighten the parking brake reliably always. In addition include one of transfers of a mechanical transmission or put the selector of an automatic transmission in a position of "R".

Do not forget that the tightened parking brake before a start of motion should be released completely. Not completely released parking brake causes an overheat of brake mechanisms that negatively influences efficiency of braking. Besides, it conducts to the accelerated wear of overlays of back brake mechanisms.
