1.9.4. Switch of the choice of the mode of the movement (DB)


S – standarny (to move the switch forward).

In – position of the lever of the choice the D and 3rd car starts with small gas on the 2nd transfer. With big gas the car starts on 1 transfer.

Е – economic regime (to move the switch back to E).

At position of the lever D or the 3rd car also starts at full gas on the 2nd transfer.

Switchings to high or low transfers occurs at full gas at low speeds and turns of the engine as well as in situation S.


The program E provides quiet, comfortable and economic driving and facilitates driving on winter slippery roads.

At the choice of too big gas the program E is automatically disconnected.

Do not exceed the most admissible values of speed on separate transfers (see marking on a speedometer).

Switch back to other position of the lever (brake switching) only when the speed of the car does not exceed the most admissible in this desirable position of the lever speed. Excess of turns leads to damage of the engine.

On slippery roads any brake switchings are impossible.
