1.24. Control lamps


1–temperature of cooling liquid

The index works at the included ignition. However after inclusion should pass some time before arrow installation in the situation corresponding to the actual temperature.

Interval of temperatures of the cold engine

While the arrow is in the left part of a scale, avoid the raised turns and engine loading!

Working interval of temperatures

At a normal mode of movement of the shooter of the index of temperature should hesitate within an average part of a scale.

At considerable loading of the engine and high temperature of external air of the shooter can depart and further to the right on a scale. It should not become a reason for alarm, the alarm lamp of system of cooling does not blink yet.

Alarm lamp

The blinking of an alarm lamp of temperature / level of cooling liquid during movement testifies to falling of its level or an overheat. Stop, muffle the engine and establish the reason of malfunctions.


The red sector of a scale corresponds to a range of the maximum turns, admissible is short-term for the rolled and heated-up engine. It is recommended, however, the latest at achievement by an arrow of this sector of a scale to be switched to an overgear or to lower gas. In a running in it is necessary to avoid high-speed modes.

3–temperature of external air

The index works at the included ignition.

When switching the display of cars with the automatic conditioner by the Fahrenheit scale (° F) the index of temperature of external air respectively automatically changes indication to indications.

At temperatures from +5 ° With to 0 ° With on the display to the right of the main indications there is a symbol in the form of a snowflake.

At temperatures from 0 ° With to–5 ° With a snowflake appears to the left of the main indication.

Emergence of a symbol in the form of a snowflake warns the driver about need of manifestation of extra care in view of danger of ice.

On the motionless car or at movement with very small speed indication of temperature can be slightly higher than the actual temperature owing to heat radiated by the engine.


Division of a scale of a speedometer on sector is defined by engine type. Therefore divergences with an illustration are possible. The speedometer is equipped with the digital counter of the general and single run, and also the index a maintenance interval.

Run counters

The top counter registers the general, and bottom – single run. Accuracy of counting of single run of the bottom counter makes 100 m.

The counter of single run is established on zero by pressing a minimum within 2 seconds of the button of dumping, nearby with a speedometer.

Index of intervals of maintenance

After ignition inclusion on a place of the counter of single run within several seconds indication of the next maintenance blinks. At approach of term of the next maintenance indication blinks within about 60 seconds also after engine start. At desire, without waiting a total time of the expiration of indication, (near a speedometer) it is possible to be switched by pressing of the button of dumping to the counter of single run.

Indication of the next maintenance appears in advance – for 1000 km or in 10 days. Emergence of the following indication is possible:

OEL – service – oil replacement

ln 1 – inspection service

ln 2 – additional maintenance

After carrying out maintenance indication comes back to a starting position at the Audi enterprise.

Display of faults

In the presence of malfunction in a combination of devices on a place of indications of the counter of single run there is "dEF" indication. Malfunction urgently eliminate at the Audi enterprise.

5–button of dumping of the counter of single run

The counter of single run is established on zero by pressing a minimum within 2 seconds of the button of dumping, nearby with a speedometer.

6–the index of level of fuel in a tank

After inclusion of ignition and after filling should pass 2 minutes before arrow installation in corresponding to the actual rest of fuel situation.

Capacity of a fuel tank of front-wheel cars makes about 80 liters, and all-wheel drive about 75 liters. These are approximate values. Actually filled quantity can differ from these sizes a little.

If the arrow reached a reserve field, it means that in a stock there were about 12 liters.

Fire of a symbol of a gas station in a combination of devices reminds, besides, of need of filling. Never develop fuel to a dry tank.

8–strelochny hours

Time is established by the button of a regulator of brightness of illumination of devices. At each single pulling and turn of the button of the shooter jumps for one minute. If to hold the button in the extended situation, having turned it, shooters will make a fresh start slowly, and then everything to run a scale quicker.

9–temperature of oil of the engine

While oil did not get warm, it is not necessary to try to realize full capacity of the engine. If an arrow of the device as the exception, will come into a range of high temperatures, it is necessary to lower engine turns. After that the arrow should come back to a normal working range. If the arrow remains in a range of high temperatures, stop, muffle the engine and check oil level. If level in norm and after start-up of the engine does not blink an alarm lamp of pressure of oil, it is possible, avoiding high turns, to reach to the next enterprise Audi.


The voltmeter shows tension of an electric onboard network. Normal amount: 12–14 volts. At a voltage reduction at the working engine below 12 volts check power supply (the accumulator and the generator) at the Audi enterprise. During engine start-up tension can fall below 8 volts.

11-illumination of devices

At the included lighting brightness control of illumination of devices by button rotation is possible.
