steering lock and ignition switch
||When the ignition/anti-theft key is
withdrawn from the lock, the lock-tounge will lock the steering
column when the steering-wheel is to the right or to the left
(according to the model) of the straight-ahead position. The key
can only be inserted or withdrawn in this fully anti-clockwise
||TO UNLIOCK THE STEERING:- Insert
the key fully, turn clockwise, rocking the steering wheel slightly
to ease the movement of the lock-tounge.
||TO SWITCH THE IGNITION ON:-
Continue to turn the key to its first stop 1; in this position the
ignition is on, the fuel gauge operates, the engine-oil pressure
warning lamp and other warning lamps light up; direction indicators
and wipers become usable, also heating and demisting.
||TO OPERATE THE STARTER MOTOR:-
Turn the key further, against spring-resistance, to operate the
starter-motor (2); release the key which will return to the "Ignition-on"
position (1). If the engine stops or does not start at the first
attempt, wait 3 to 4 seconds, and repeat the operation; NEVER
OPERATE THE STARTER MOTOR (KEY IN CLOCKWISE DIRECTION) WHEN THE
ENGINE IS RUNNING.
||TO SWITCH OFF THE IGNITION:-
Turn the key anti-clockwise from position (1) to position (0).
||TO LOCK THE STEERING:- After the
vehicle has stopped, withdraw the key and turn the steering wheel
until the lock-tounge clicks home.
||References (0), (1) and (2) above
are descriptive only; they are not marked on the lock.
Never turn the key to the "steering locked"
position (0) while the vehicle is moving, free-wheeling or
coasting; the steering can lock, with serious consequences if
the key is withdrawn, even partly.
|Important note: On no
account seperate the ignition switch from the anti-theft lock, or
attempt to use non-standard components or adaptaitions; inadvertent
locking of the steering could result, with dangerous consequences.
