The onboard computer and the help at a parking

Depending on model and a car complete set the multipurpose display (SID) type 1 or 2 can be established.



The display is used as well for display of the information of an audiosystem.


By means of the button it is possible to choose one of following functions:

DIST ааааааааа

Distance to a place of appointment/counter of the passed way;

ARRIV аааааа

Arrival estimated time;

ALARM ааааа

Alarm clock function;

SPD W аааааа

The prevention of speed (sound signal).

By means of the button it is possible to choose one of following functions:

TEMP ааааааа

Air temperature;

D.T.E. ааааааа

Settlement distance which can be passed on the remained volume of fuel;

FUEL 0 ааааа

The average expense of fuel after installation on 0;

SPD 0 ааааааа

Average speed after installation on 0.

Irrespective of chosen function SID automatically includes the prevention of ice if the external temperature makes from-3 to +3 hailstones (except a mode NIGHT PANEL).

For dump of values of all functions, except DIST, ALARM and SPD W, press button "CLEAR" and keep it within not less than 4 seconds.

Installation of values of functions SPD 0, SPD W, DIST, ARRIV, ALARM

For installation of values of the given functions at first choose corresponding function by buttons or, and then press and keep button "SET" not less than 1 with (figures on the display should start to blink).

By means of buttons or expose the necessary value.

To null value it is possible, having pressed button "CLEAR".

In summary press button "SET".

At installation of zero value of function of speed and an alarm clock these functions are disconnected. Besides, values for these functions are not erased from memory at engine deenergizing.

The included function is marked with a sign on the display.

Calculation of an arrival time and average speed

For arrival time calculation establish distance to destination (DIST) and choose function ARRIV. The Arrival time pays off on the basis of average speed in last 20 minutes of movement. At a stop its time is added up the time of arrival. At a choice of function DIST the remained distance to destination is displayed. When the distance to destination reaches zero, DIST carries out function of the passed way. As initial size for the counter of the passed way last preset value of function DIST is used.

For arrival time calculation at certain speed of movement establish distance to destination (DIST), speed of movement (SPD 0) and choose function ARRIV.

For calculation of average speed (SPD 0), necessary for arrival in the destination removed on distance (DIST), and in set time (ARRIV) operate similarly.

Check mode

At engine start approximately within 4 seconds on the display the inscription CHECK ("CHECK") is deduced. If the message on check arrives during movement, the sound signal is distributed and on the display before the given message the inscription INFO DISPL is deduced. If there are some messages, to the left of an inscription there is a symbol "+". Messages appear in priority sequence, depending on their importance. For removal of the message from the display quickly press button "CLEAR". The list of possible messages is more low resulted:


Headlights / back lanterns / antifog headlights/stoplights do not work


Low level of a liquid стеклоомывателя


Add ОЖ


Replace the battery in a key


The key is not identified


Service of the anticreeping alarm system


Transmission overheat


It is time on servicing


Fill fuel


Check up level of impellent oil

* For removal of the given message is short press button "CLEAR", and then press it once again and keep not less than 8 seconds while on the display there will be no inscription SERVICE and the sound signal will not be distributed.

Mode NIGHT PANEL (the Night panel)

The given mode is intended for comfort increase at driving in a night-time for the account of reduction of volume of the information which are given out to the driver – the most important counters and indicators burn only. Inclusion and mode deenergizing is made by pressing the button NIGHT PANEL.

Units of measurements and languages

SID can work on one of 6 languages (Swedish, English, German, French, Italian, Spanish) and one of 4 sets of units of measure (the metric, American and two mixed sets).

For an input in a mode of installation of a set of units of measure and language simultaneously press and keep buttons "CLEAR" and SET during 4 with, the sound signal yet will not be distributed.

Establish demanded units of measure by means of buttons or and confirm a choice with button "SET". Then in the same way choose demanded language and confirm a choice.

Time and date installation

Time is established by two small buttons located in the left part. For time display at the switched off ignition press one of buttons SID, except NIGHT PANEL.

For date installation choose function TEMP and keep button "SET" not less than 1 second (the sound signal will be distributed and on the display year will start to blink).

Establish current year by means of buttons or and confirm a choice with button "SET". Then in the same way establish month and date, confirming each input.


By means of buttons with arrows it is possible to choose one of functions (TEMP, D.T.E., FUEL 0, SPD 0). The description of functions is resulted above for SID 2.

The message on ice and messages on checks stands out similarly SID 2.

Inclusion and mode deenergizing NIGHT PANEL, and also dump of all values are made similarly SID 2. For input acknowledgement button "CLEAR" is used.

For installation of units of measure and display language press simultaneously button "CLEAR" and an arrow upwards and keep them during 4 with. Further procedure is carried out similarly SID 2.

For date installation in a mode TEMP press during 1 about simultaneously button "CLEAR" and an arrow downwards. Further procedure is carried out similarly SID 2.

The acoustic help at a parking

The device of maintenance of the help at a parking is established as an additional accessory. Remember that small and-or narrow subjects can be not always found out system.

The system contains 4 ultrasonic gauges-radiators located in a back bumper which register subjects on distance to 1.8 m behind the car.

The system is activated automatically at inclusion of a backing and at subject detection deduces on display SID the message PARK ASSIST together with generation of short sound signals. Signals become frequent in process of car approach to an obstacle and at distance less than 30 sm turn to continuous tone. Character of signals considerably varies at distance of 90 sm is a distance most conveniently for luggage carrier unloading/loading.

The help system at a parking can be disconnected. For this purpose at the activated system press and keep button "CLEAR" before occurrence on the message display PARK ASSIST OFF. In the same way the system joins. Besides, the system joins always at ignition inclusion.

At detection of internal malfunction (for example, at pollution of gauges) and it gives out to impossibility of work of system a constant sound to inform the driver on it.
