1.3.5. Protivobuksovochny system (TCS)

The Protivobuksovochny system (PBS) promotes increase of traction properties of the car and traffic safety at the expense of regulation of the torque developed by the engine, and a pritormazhivaniye of a slipping wheel. If the PBS system finds pro-slipping of a driving wheel, it gives command for reduction of a torque of the engine and includes the corresponding wheel brake. It prevents wheel failure in slipping and decrease in force of adhesion with a paving.
Thus on a slippery covering supply of fuel in the engine is automatically regulated, and the torque of optimum size which excludes intensive slipping of wheels and decrease in force of adhesion of wheels with a basic surface is brought to wheels.

To disconnect PBS system, press the DSC OFF switch.

Indicator operation/signalling device of malfunction of protivobuksovochny and protivozanosny systems.
The indicator lights up for some seconds after turn of the switch of ignition in the situation "ON" (ignition is included). The signaling device blinks at operation of protivobuksovochny system (PBS) or protivozanosny system (CCD).
If the signaling device continues to burn, normal functioning of PBS systems and a CCD is probably broken.

The blinking of a signaling device can be accompanied by quiet characteristic noise, and starting with a motor compartment. It testifies to normal work of protivobuksovochny system. At car movement on a slippery paving, for example on svezhevypavshy snow, the engine cannot develop high turns if the PBS system is included.
