Keys

The key is a component of electronic system of blocking of start-up of the engine. The spare keys ordered in representation office of the Opel company, 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 when receiving insurance compensation in case of a damage, and also problems at presentation of guarantee claims.

Store a spare key in a reliable place.

In a head of a key the microchip by means of which automatic shutdown of system of an immobilization of the engine is made is built in. At loss of a key address in representation office of the manufacturing company of the car.

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

  1. At start of the engine watch, that the ring of a charm and other metal subjects did not touch a plastic head of a key;
  2. Do not allow key contact during engine start with other keys equipped with a microchip in which the chip 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 passing of alarm impulses;
  5. Do not subject a key to long influence of high temperature and straight lines solar a beam;
  6. Hold a key dry, do not allow contact it with water and other liquids;
  7. Do not leave a key near sources of electromagnetic radiation.

Unlocking and locking of doors by a key outside of the car

For car unlocking 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 the corresponding direction, then to pull for the handle.

Locking of doors from within

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


On the models equipped with the electric drive of window regulators, when keeping key in the provision of locking for some time there should be an automatic closing of all left opened windows, and on the Cabriolet models 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 a clamp opening a key and turn it to the right — after a zakhlopyvaniye the door can be open only outside.

Remote control

The DU panel is built in a head of a key and allows to operate functioning of the uniform lock (doors, a trunk lid, the hatch of a jellied mouth of a fuel tank), the anticreeping alarm system and a drive of harmonious top on the Cabriolet models.

Management of activators of locks

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

When unlocking 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 door opening after operation of door activators simply pull for the handle. Locking of doors is made by pressing the button.

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

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

  1. Range of operation 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 below);
  3. Synchronization of a radiator with an intake as a result of frequent use of the panel from excessively big distance is broken — execute repeated synchronization (see below);
  4. Attempt to make repeated activation of locks later excessively short period — wait not less than 30 seconds, then repeat attempt;
  5. The active hindrances connected with functioning on proximity 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 (see above item. Unlocking and locking of doors by a key outside of the car).

In default act as follows: When unlocking a door turn a key in the door lock in the direction A, having overcome a resistance point, then return it to vertical situation. When locking — to turn in the direction B against the stop, then to return to a starting position.

Replacement of an element of a food

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

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Through a special opening hook a latch of fixing of the DU panel 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 was 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 synchronization of a radiator and the receiver (see below).

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

At violations of serviceability of functioning of the device of remote control it is necessary to make its repeated synchronization: include ignition — within 30 seconds the system will be in a synchronization mode; quickly press any of buttons of the key of the DU panel built in a head. The successful conclusion of process of synchronization proves to be true single operation of activators of door locks.

Switch ignition / lock of blocking of a steering column

The lock of ignition 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 situation)
ON (II) — ignition is included
START (III) — engine start

The situation "LOCK" (0) — blocking

The key can be entered into the lock or is taken from it only in this situation. At ignition key turn from the situation "LOCK" (0) in the situation "ACC" (I) there is an unblocking of a steering column. To turn a key from the situation "ACC" (I) in the situation "LOCK" (0), it is necessary to press slightly previously it, having a little drowned in the lock. Besides, on the models equipped with automatic transmission, an additional condition of permission of start obligatory transfer of the lever of the selector to the situation "R" is.

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

Blocking the helmsman of a column sometimes brings 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), at the same time turning a key in the lock.

At all do not take a key from the lock from the ignition lock 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!

The situation "ACC" (I) — lay

In this position of the ignition key possibility of functioning of auxiliary consumers of the electric power (an audiosystem, the lighter, the heater fan, screen wipers etc.) is provided.

The situation "ON" (II) — ignition is included

The ignition key is in this situation constantly during car movement, and also at operation of the engine on single turns. An electric food of all systems and the additional equipment established on the car is at the same time provided. At key turn from the situation "ACC" (I) the situation "ON" (II) quickly joins some from located on an instrument guard of the car of control lamps, confirming serviceability of functioning of the relevant control systems.

On some models at key turn in the situation "ON" (II) there is an automatic inclusion of head headlights (DRL).

The situation "START" (III) — start

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

If the car is equipped with immobilization system, start of the engine will be blocked, if the anticreeping system does not identify a key code (see below).

System of an immobilization of the engine

The device of an immobilization of the engine can enter into a standard complete set of anticreeping system of some models (more simply — an immobilizator). The device serves for prevention of attempts of unauthorized start of the engine and is effective anticreeping remedy, protecting the car from car thieves.

In a head of keys of the models equipped with system of an immobilization of the engine, the microchip making shutdown of the anti-theft device immobilizing the engine enters.

Damage of a microchip can lead to loss of possibility of implementation of start of the engine! Do not allow excessive heating of keys, do not leave them for a long time under the influence of direct sunshine; try not to drop keys and not to put on them heavy subjects; avoid the moisture influence, the become wet 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 of the car equipped with an immobilizator can be started only by means of the ignition key equipped with the built in microchip. In a microchip the special code is ciphered, and the anticreeping system makes blocking shutdown only in case of its identification. Attempt of start of the engine by means of any other key or a master key leads to shutdown of a chain of start of the engine.

At ignition inclusion (the ignition key will turn in the situation "ON" [II]) the control lamp of system of an immobilization lights up for some seconds, then dies away (see. Dashboard, item. Control lamp of the device of preheat of the engine (diesel models)). The blinking of the indicator says that the system did not identify a key code. In this case it is necessary to switch off ignition (a key — in the situation "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 being in the lock of ignition if close are any other key with the built-in microchip. For reliable identification of a code we advise to keep each key in a separate sheaf.

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

The blinking of a control lamp of an immobilizator occurs also at key turn in the ignition lock from the situation "ON" (II) (ignition is included) in the situation 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 an immobilizator design. It can break normal functioning of electronic systems of the car and make it uncontrollable.

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

Turning on / shutdown of the anticreeping alarm system

Inclusion

The anticreeping alarm system provides control of attempts of unlocking of the cowl, all doors, a cover and a luggage compartment, in addition, volume sensors enter into a complete set of system in salon, and also inclination / blow sensors.
