1.1.5. Violations of paramount importance (red pictograms)

GENERAL INFORMATION

The following messages on violations of normal work or the prevention of paramount importance are possible:

– pressure of oil the too low;
– violation in brake system;
– level of cooling liquid too low or temperature of cooling liquid the too high;
– brake system together with anti-blocking system.

These pictograms of paramount importance warn about danger. Therefore it is necessary to stop and muffle the engine!

If some violations of paramount importance are noted, pictograms appear one for another approximately for 2 seconds everyone. Pictograms blink until violation will not be eliminated.

Pressure of oil in the engine

Text message: "STOP! OLSTAND PRUFEN" ("STOP! CHECK OIL LEVEL").

If at movement there is this message, it is necessary to stop and switch off the engine. Check oil level in the engine and if necessary add oil.

If the pictogram blinks in spite of the fact that oil level in the engine in norm, to continue movement it is impossible. The engine should not work even at single turns – the qualified help is necessary.


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


Text message "STOP! BREMSFLUSSIGKEIT PRUFEN"
"STOP' CHECK BRAKE LIQUID".

The pictogram appears at too small level of brake liquid.

It is necessary to stop the car and to check level of brake liquid.


Prevention

If level of brake liquid in a tank too low, it is necessary to look for urgently the next service enterprise Volkswagen for check of working brake system. On a way there it is necessary ready to need to be stronger to press a brake pedal when braking, to increase in a brake way and to the increased free wheeling of a brake pedal.

If level of brake liquid in norm, violation of normal work of ABS is possible. Thus probably when braking early blocking of back wheels. At opredelenny circumstances it can conduct to failures of back brake mechanisms.

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


Temperature of cooling liquid cooling liquid / level

Text message: "STOP! KUHLMITTEL PRUFEN" ("STOP! CHECK COOLING LIQUID").

If during movement the pictogram lights up or blinks, it is possible or excessive temperature increase of cooling liquid, or too low level of cooling liquid.

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

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 serviceable, 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 text message on the display disappeared, 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.


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.


Anti-blocking system (ABS)

Text message of STOP! ABS STORUNG"
"STOP! VIOLATION IN WORK АБС"

The pictogram signals about violations in work of anti-blocking system and protivobuksovochny system.

In the presence of malfunction in ABS probably following:

 – if 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 not only there is a malfunction in ABS, but also 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 of ABS is possible. Owing to violation of normal work of ABS, when braking probably premature blocking of back wheels.

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


Protivobuksovochny system (EDS)

The Protivobuksovochny system works together with anti-blocking system. To malfunction in protivobuksovochny system points fire of a control lamp of ABS. It is necessary to address rather whenever possible in the service enterprise Volkswagen.
