F o r a l l v e h i c l e s :
P o s i t i o n 1 :
To l o c k t h e s t e e r i n g w h e e l withdraw
key and turn w h e e l until you hear the lock-
ing pin engage.
We recommend that the steering wheel al-
ways be locked w h e n you leave the vehicle.
The possibility of your vehicle being stolen
is drastically reduced in this way.
N o t e
If lights or turn signals are not switched off,
a buzzer* will sound, after the ignition key
has been removed, when the driver's door
is open.
P o s i t i o n 2 :
If the key is difficult to turn in the lock or can-
not be turned to this position at all, the steer-
ing wheel must be rocked to and fro slightly
to release the locking pin.
P o s i t i o n 3 :
In this position the headlights and other
heavy current consumers are switched off.
Before the starter can be operated again the
key must be turned back to position 1 . The
non-repeat mechanism in the ignition lock
prevents the starter from being operated
when engine is running, as this could dam-
age the starter.
I g n i t i o n k e y
l o c k *
On vehicles with an automatic gearbox*
after switching off the ignition the ignition
key can only be withdrawn if the selector
lever is in the " P " position
When the ignition key has been withdrawn
the selector lever is locked in this position.
E l e c t r o n i c
i m m o b i l i z e r
The immobilizer prevents unauthorized per-
sons using your vehicle.
A micro-chip is located in the head of the
key which automatically deactivates the im-
mobilizer w h e n the key is inserted in the
ignition lock.
The system is automatically activated when
the ignition is switched off.

p o i s o n i n g .
Before starting, move gear lever to neu-
tral (with automatic gearbox, selector lever
in " P " or "IM" position) and apply handbrake
firmly.
On vehicles with a manual gearbox de-
I press the clutch pedal when operating
starter so that starter only has to turn en-
gine.
As soon as engine starts, release the
ignition key so that starter can disengage.
After starting a cold engine it may sound
noisy for a moment or t w o because the oil
pressure has to build up in the hydraulic
tappets first. This is normal and no cause for
alarm.
Do not
warm
engine
up by
run-
ning
it with
vehicle
stationary.
Drive
off straight
away.
Do not overrev or use full throttle until
the engine has reached the normal operat-
ing temperature.

P e t r o l e n g i n e s
These engines are equipped with a petrol in-
jection system that automatically supplies
the correct fuel/air mixture at all ambient
temperatures.
When engine is c o l d o r a t o p e r a t i n g
t e m p e r a t u r e do n o t accelerate before or
during the starting procedure.
If the engine does not start at once, stop
using the starter after 10 sees, wait about
half a minute and then try again.
If the engine still does not start, the electric
fuel pump fuse may have blown - see
Booklet 3.2, "Fuses".
When the engine is v e r y h o t it may be
necessary to accelerate slightly after the
engine has started.
