Switching off: to turn a key in situation II (ignition is included), it is possible to start the engine.

At inclusion ignition during a short interval of time the control lamp of electronic devices of the engine (is absent in cars with the diesel engine) is shone. If this lamp at inclusion ignition blinks - the system is faulty and to start the engine it is impossible.

Before repeated attempt of start-up of the engine, return a key to situation • also wait approximately during 2 seconds.

If the engine after several attempts is not started, address in an authorized workshop of Orel firm for the help.

If the control lamp of electronic devices of the engine is lit after its start-up, the system of electronic control by operation of the engine is faulty.

Electronic blocking of start-up of the engine does not block a door. Therefore at an exit from the car always block locks of doors and turn on the device of the anticreeping alarm system.

All cars with electronic blocking of start-up of the engine are supplied with the special passport in which all data on the car are specified. Do not leave by no means this passport in the car.


At visit of authorized workshops of Orel firm show this passport.

Central blocking

Central blocking of doors, trunk lids, covers of a fuel tank.

Blocking: turn a key (in the lock of forward doors or trunk lids) or press a clamp (on doors of the driver).

Unblocking: turn a key (in the lock of forward doors or trunk lids) or extend up a clamp (on one of forward doors).

The pressed clamp of an open door of the driver when closing jumps out up: all doors will be unblocked (protection from blocking).

If when closing the handle of a door is wrung out, the clamp up does not jump out.

The fixed doors will be unblocked at failure independently (for assistance outside) - a condition:

it is impossible to switch off ignition.

At an overload at the expense of frequent inclusions through short periods электропи the taniye on about 30 seconds will be interrupted.

At electronic control by windows, probably, closing of windows outside: hold a key in the provision of closing of a door until windows will not be closed.

Mechanical anticreeping protection (on all doors)

Inclusion and switching off only at key turn in the lock of a door of the driver. Clamps of all doors are blocked from opening.

Do not block, if in the car there are people! The unblocking from within is impossible.

And = Blocking: when closing a door of the driver slowly turn a key to the right in horizontal situation, take out.

In = Unblocking: turn a key back through vertical situation against the stop (any other measures it is impossible. therefore store in a reliable place a spare key!).

Trunk lid

It is blocked: at the vertical provision of a shliyets in the lock.

It is unblocked: at the horizontal provision of a shliyets in the lock.

The lock opens by pressing its head.


The registration plate is distinguishable and according to instructions is shined only at the closed trunk lid. Therefore it is forbidden to go with an open trunk lid.

At installation original принадлеж nosty firm Orel on a trunk lid, its weight increases. If it any more does not keep in open situation, it is necessary to address in an authorized workshop of Orel firm for installation of the strengthened springs.

The central blocking, through a trunk lid

At the horizontal provision of a shliyets of a head of a trunk lid there is its blocking together with doors of the car and a tank cover.

Unblocking: a key in vertical situation.

At an unblocking through one of forward doors the trunk lid remains blocked (except a case when the key was taken out from the trunk lid lock in horizontal situation).


Key turn to the right against the stop and transfer back to horizontal situation.

All doors and tank cover also will be unblocked.

At the switched-on anti-theft device the trunk lid will be unblocked only.

Via the lock of a trunk lid it is impossible neither to include, nor to switch off the anti-theft device of control of doors.

If after an unblocking it is necessary to block again, transfer a key to vertical situation.

To provide blocking and unblocking possibility through forward doors, return a key to horizontal situation.

Signaling anti-theft device

Inclusion and switching off together with the mechanical anti-theft device:

And = it is included

In = it is switched off

The signaling anti-theft device supervises:

– doors, trunk lid, engine cowl;
– car salon;
– radio receiver;
– ignition and starter;
– the power-supply circuit of an anticreeping signal also interferes with engine start.

The integrated self-checking

After inclusion the system during about 10 seconds inspects. About malfunctions the system signals a blinking of a light-emitting diode (LED) in ультразву the kovy sensor from the forward passenger (above lateral glass, the shooter in drawing). Address in an authorized workshop of Orel firm. Samodiagnosti provides fast search of malfunctions.

Light-emitting diode (LED)

Within the first 10 seconds:

– check, an inclusion delay burns =
– blinks = a door, a luggage carrier are open or the system is faulty

about 10 seconds later:

– blinks = the device it is included
– the comment of 1 second = switching off function burns

Inclusion with control of salon of the car:

– a window, the sliding hatch, doors, a luggage carrier and a cowl of the engine to close;
– turn on the signaling anti-theft device, LED burns about 10 seconds.

After that the device is activated. LED continues to blink before device switching off. Inclusion without control of salon of the car:

– close a luggage carrier and an engine cowl;
– the key in the ultrasonic sensor from the driver (above lateral glass, the shooter in drawing), LED blinks at most 10 seconds;
– close doors;
– turn on the signaling device, LED burns about 10 seconds. After that the device is activated without salon control (e.g. if in salon there are animals).

Opening and luggage carrier closing at the switched-on signaling anti-theft device:

And = to unblock, open a luggage carrier, to close,

In = to block, in 10 seconds control of a luggage carrier and salon will be again activated.

If blocking is not made, later 10 seconds during opening the signal will be distributed.


During an inclusion phase ultrasonic sensors will involve at most 3, other sensors — any quantity of signals. The signal stands out.

– acoustic (siren, 30 seconds) and
– optical (signal blinking, 5 minutes).

The signal is disconnected by switching off of the signaling device.
