Keys

The key is a component of electronic system of blocking of start-up of the engine. The spare keys ordered in representation branch of company Opel, guarantee trouble-free functioning of electronic system of blocking of start-up of the engine. It will allow you to avoid superfluous expenses and possible difficulties at reception of insurance compensation in case of a damage, and also problems at a presentation of guarantee claims.

Store a spare key in a reliable place.

In a key head the microchip by means of which automatic switching-off of system иммобилизации the engine is made is built in. At key loss address in representation branch of the company-manufacturer of the car.

At using the equipped microchip a key it is necessary to observe some special methods of precaution:

  1. At engine start watch, that the ring of a charm and other metal subjects did not touch a plastic head of a key;
  2. Do not suppose contact of a key during start of the engine with other keys equipped with a microchip in which the microcircuit with the transceiver (including with keys from other cars is established);
  3. Do not bend a head of a key and try not to subject a key to shock loadings;
  4. Do not place a head of a key in any protective covers, capable to interfere with passage of alarm impulses;
  5. Do not subject a key to long influence of a heat and straight lines solar a beam;
  6. Hold a key dry, do not suppose its contact to water and other liquids;
  7. Do not leave a key near to sources of electromagnetic radiation.

Unlocking and lock-out of doors by a key outside of the car

For unlocking of the car by a key outside of the car it is necessary to insert a key into the lock of a door and to turn it in a corresponding direction, then to pull for the handle.

Lock-out of doors from within

Lock-out of doors from within is made by утапливания push-button switches of blocking of the locks which have been built in from above in bottom edges of window apertures.


On the models equipped with the electric drive стеклоподъемников, at key keeping in position of lock-out during some time there should be an automatic closing of all left opened windows, and on models the Cabriolet to the electric drive of elevating top, — roof lifting.

Additional blocking of locks of back doors (Child Lock)

Additional blocking is provided for the purpose of the prevention of casual unlocking of back doors of the car as a result of pranks of children transported on a back seat.

Open a door, insert into an aperture of a clamp a key and turn it to the right, — after захлопывания the door can be opened only outside.

Remote control

Panel DU is built in a head of a key and allows to operate functioning of the uniform lock (a door, a luggage carrier cover, лючок a jellied mouth of a petrol tank), the anticreeping alarm system and a drive of collapsible top on models the Cabriolet.

Management of activators of locks

Range of action of a radiator of the panel makes about 3 metres and can be reduced as a result of any influence of passive or active hindrances.

At unlocking of doors by means of the key of a remote control built in in a head, direct a hand with the key clamped in it on the car and press the button. Serviceability of functioning of the panel proves to be true a luminescence of the light-emitting diode built in it. For opening of a door after operation of door activators simply pull for the handle. Lock-out of doors is made by pressing the button.

Avoid hit on moisture panel DU, try not to subject to its influence of direct solar beams.

Refusals of operation of activators of the uniform lock on command from panel DU can speak the several reasons:

  1. Range of action of the panel is exceeded, — repeat attempt from shorter distance;
  2. The internal element of a food of the panel is discharged, — replace the battery (see more low);
  3. Synchronisation of a radiator with an intake as a result of frequent use of the panel from excessively big distance is broken, — execute repeated synchronisation (see more low);
  4. Attempt to make repeated activation of locks after excessively short time interval, — wait not less than 30 seconds, then repeat attempt;
  5. The active hindrances connected with functioning on affinity of a source of a powerful radio emission take place, — repeat attempt from shorter distance, in case of need unlock a door by means of a key (Unlocking and lock-out of doors by a key outside of the car see above the item).

In default operate as follows: At door unlocking turn a key in the door lock in a direction And, having overcome a resistance point, then return it in vertical position. At lock-out, — to turn in a direction In against the stop, then to return in a starting position.

Replacement of an element of a food

If range of action of the panel of a remote control mean decreases, it is necessary to make replacement of an element of a food.

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Through a special aperture hook a latch of fixing of panel DU a small screw-driver.
  1. Separate the panel from a key, open its cover.

  1. Make replacement of an element of a food.

As replaceable use an element of the same type as that has been established in the panel earlier. Track observance of polarity of a replaceable element.


Replacement of an element of a food should be made within 3 minutes after opening of a cover of the panel, otherwise it is necessary to make repeated synchronisation of a radiator and the receiver (see more low).

Synchronisation of a radiator and the receiver of the device of remote control

At infringements of serviceability of functioning of the device of remote control it is necessary to make its repeated synchronisation: include ignition, — within 30 seconds the system will be in a synchronisation mode; quickly press any of buttons of the key of panel DU built in a head. Successful end of process of synchronisation proves to be true unitary operation of activators of door-locks.

The switch of ignition / the lock of blocking of a steering column

The ignition lock is located on the right on a steering column. The key can occupy one of four positions in the lock:

LOCK (0) — blocking
ACC (I) — auxiliary consumers of the electric power (lay position)
ON (II) — ignition is included
START (III) — engine start

Position «LOCK» (0) — blocking

The key can be entered into the lock or is taken from it only in the given position. At turn of the ignition key from position «LOCK» (0) in position «ACC» (I) occurs разблокирование a steering column. To turn a key from position «ACC» (I) in position «LOCK» (0), it is necessary to press slightly preliminary it, a few having drowned in the lock. Besides, on the models equipped with automatic transmission, an additional condition of the permission of start obligatory transfer of the lever of the selector in position «Р» is.

Blocking of a steering column is carried out automatically at attempt to turn a steering wheel after extraction of a key from the ignition lock.

Blocking of a steering column sometimes results impossibility to turn a key in the ignition lock. In such situation it is necessary to turn slightly a steering wheel in this or that party (for the purpose of loading removal), simultaneously turning a key in the lock.

At all do not take a key from the lock from the lock of ignition during movement! It will inevitably lead to blocking of a steering column and control loss over management. Take out a key from the lock only after a full stop of the car!

Position «ACC» (I) — lay

The ignition key is in the given position constantly during car movement, and also at engine work on single turns. An electric food of all systems and the additional equipment established on the car is simultaneously provided. At turn of a key from position «ACC» (I) position «ON» (II) quickly joins some from located on an instrument guard of the car of control lamps, confirming serviceability of functioning of corresponding control systems.

On some models at key turn in position «ON» (II) there is an automatic inclusion of head headlights (DRL).

Position «START» (III) — start

At key turn in this position there is a starter inclusion. After realisation of start of the engine the key should be released, and it will automatically return to position «ON» (II).

If the car is equipped by system иммобилизации engine start will be blocked if the anticreeping system does not identify a key code (see more low).

System иммобилизации the engine

The device can enter into a standard complete set of anticreeping system of some models иммобилизации the engine (easier — иммобилизатор). The device serves for prevention of attempts of unapproved start of the engine and is effective anticreeping means, protecting the car from car thieves.

In a head of keys of the models equipped with system иммобилизации of the engine, the microchip making switching-off иммобилизующего the engine of the antijoy ride device enters.

Microchip damage can lead to loss of possibility of realisation of start of the engine! Do not suppose excessive heating of keys, do not leave them for a long time under the influence of direct solar beams; try not to drop keys and not to put on them heavy subjects; avoid the moisture influence, the become wet complete set accurately wipe dry a soft fabric.


No replaceable elements of a food to a microchip are provided, — at all do not undertake independent attempts to disassemble a key head!

The engine equipped иммобилизатором the car can be started only by means of the ignition key equipped with a built in microchip. In a microchip the special code is ciphered, and the anticreeping system makes blocking switching-off only in case of its identification. Attempt of start of the engine by means of any other key or a master key leads to switching-off of a chain of start of the engine.

At ignition inclusion (the ignition key will turn in position «ON» [II]) the control lamp of system иммобилизации lights up for some seconds, then dies away (the Panel of devices, the item the Control lamp of the device of preheat of the engine (diesel models)) see. The indicator blinking says that the system did not identify a key code. In this case it is necessary to switch off ignition (a key — in position «LOCK» [0]) and to take out a key from the lock, then to repeat attempt.

There is a probability of neoknowledge system of a code of the key which is in the lock of ignition if close are any other key with the built in microchip. For reliable identification of a code is advised to hold each key in a separate sheaf.

If the system repeatedly refuses to identify a key code, address on a car repair shop of the company-manufacturer of the car.

The blinking of a control lamp иммобилизатора occurs also at key turn in the lock of ignition from position «ON» (II) (ignition is included) in position ACC (I) (lay) or LOCK (0) (blocking of the lock of a steering column).

Do not undertake attempts to make any changes and additions in a design иммобилизатора. It can break normal functioning of electronic systems of the car and make its uncontrollable.

In case of loss of a key and impossibility of start of the engine, address on a car repair shop of the company-manufacturer of the car.
