The audiosystem is not a part of a base complete set of the car and is established as the additional equipment. Some updatings of the car can be equipped with an autoradio tape recorder which is shown on an illustration. Attentively read this Section and familiarize in the description of the device and functionality of the autoradio tape recorder established on your car.
If on the car other autoradio tape recorder is established, read the corresponding Operation manual which is attached to the car.

AM/FM stereoradio tape recorder

The stereophonic autoradio tape recorder established on your car, is simple in management and provides high-quality reception of broadcasts in AM and FM ranges. The radio receiver allows to remember and automatically to be adjusted on 6 radio stations working in a range of AM, and 12 radio stations in FM range.
Cassette a deck with function of an automatic reversion provides possibility of continuous reproduction of records on both paths of a magnetic tape without audiocassette shift.

Radio receiver

For functioning of a radio receiver it is required, that the ignition key was turned in situation I (ACCESSORY – Auxiliary consumers of the electric power) or II (ON – Ignition is included). For inclusion of a radio receiver press the SW VOL/BAL button.

Adjustment of level of loudness is made by rotation of the same SW VOL/BAL button.

On the display of an autoradio tape recorder the indicator of the included radio range and value of frequency of the current control of a radio receiver is highlighted. The AM/FM 1-2 button is intended for switching of ranges of AM, FM 1 and FM 2. If the broadcasting in one of поддиапазонов FM is conducted in a stereophonic mode, on the display of an autoradio tape recorder there is a ST indicator. The stereophonic mode in a radio range of AM is absent.
In any of three ranges the radio receiver allows to make control by three ways: manually (TUNE), semi-automatic (SEEK) go on previously chosen radio stations which frequencies are brought in memory of a radio receiver.

MANUAL CONTROL (TUNE function). It is made by means of the TUNE/SEEK key. Press on top ^ or v the lower part of the TUNE/SEEK key respectively to increase or reduce frequency of control of a radio receiver. By pressing and key deduction in the pressed situation frequency of control starts to change continuously. The current frequency of control of a radio receiver is reflected in the display. Release the TUNE/SEEK key as soon as the receiver will be adjusted on the necessary frequency. To change frequency of control for one discrete step, shortly press and release the TUNE/SEEK key.

SEMI-AUTOMATIC CONTROL (SEEK function). At inclusion of this function the radio receiver finds in the current range radio station with a strong signal and is adjusted on it. For radio receiver inclusion in a mode of semi-automatic control it is necessary to press and hold the TUNE/SEEK key until you will not hear a short sound signal. Radio station search will occur to a strong signal in bottom or top поддиапазоне rather current control of a radio receiver depending on what part of a key you pressed – bottom or top. Search stops, as soon as the receiver finds the first radio station with a strong signal.

Radio receiver control for previously chosen stations is made by means of six buttons 1-6. You can bring in memory of a radio receiver of frequency of your eighteen favourite stations (on six radio stations on each of ranges of AM, FM1 and FM2).

To bring in memory of a radio receiver frequency of the chosen station, execute the following.


1. By means of the AM/FM1-2 button include a demanded radio range. Each of six buttons of automatic control allows to remember in one station in ranges of AM, FM1 and FM2.
2. By means of the TUNE/SEEK key adjust a radio receiver on desirable station, using a mode of manual or semi-automatic control.
3. Choose for this station one of six buttons of preliminary control, press and hold it until will hear a short sound signal.
4. Repeat operations with the first on the third to bring in memory of a radio receiver of frequency of six stations working in a range of AM, and twelve stations broadcasting in a range of FM. Now it is enough to press any of six buttons that the radio receiver was adjusted on the station previously chosen by you. Frequencies of preliminary control of a radio receiver are erased at failure (the strong category) or shutdown of the storage battery.

Adjustment of balance and sound timbre

Regulators of balance of loudspeakers. By means of the SW VOL/BAL button the balance of the left/right loudspeakers, and by means of the FADER handle – balance of forward/back loudspeakers of the speaker system is regulated.

The ring rotary FADER handle is located coaxially with the SW VOL/BAL button. Rotating the FADER handle on or counter-clockwise, establish desirable relative loudness of lobbies and back loudspeakers. For adjustment of balance of the left/right loudspeakers it is necessary to extend previously on itself the SW VOL/BAL button. The balance of the left/right loudspeakers is regulated by SW VOL/BAL button rotation.

Regulator of a timbre of a sound of BASS/TRE. Rotating the BASS/TRE handle in this or that party adjust to the taste a sound timbre in a range of low frequencies. For adjustment of a timbre of a sound in a range of high frequencies extend the BASS/TRE handle on itself and rotate it in the necessary direction, achieving a desirable timbre.

Cassette deck

Include an autoradio tape recorder, having pressed the SW VOL/BAL button. Develop an audiocassette so that its party with an open site of a magnetic film was on the right. Then insert an audiocassette into a reception window cassette decks. The audiocassette should enter into a reception window almost completely. After that there is an automatic loading of an audiocassette into position and record reproduction begins.

Indicators which are executed in the form of arrows and are located on the autoradio tape recorder display, show the direction of movement of a magnetic film and a lost path. At record reproduction on the top path of a film (in that provision of an audiocassette as you inserted it in a deck) the indicator will burn. To replace a magnetic path and to switch the direction of movement of a film to the return, press at the same time on both buttons of fast rewind of a film.

Function of an automatic reverse provides possibility of continuous playing of an audiocassette: at achievement of the end spittles cassette a deck automatically are switched by the direction of rewind of a film to the return.

Thus record on the second path of a magnetic film is reproduced. To take an audiocassette from decks, press the button located to the left of a window of loading.

Fast rewind of a film

Two buttons located to the right of a window of loading of an audiocassette, are intended for inclusion of modes of fast rewind of a magnetic film forward and back. The right button includes fast rewind of a film back, and left – forward. To stop fast rewind of a film forward or back, it is necessary to press shortly respectively the right or left button. If in a mode of fast rewind the end of a magnetic film is reached, the direction of movement of a film automatically changes on the return and record reproduction joins.

In use autoradio tape recorders the magnetic head cassette decks gradually becomes soiled deposits of a dust and showered particles of a magnetic layer which get on it from a film. At considerable pollution of a magnetic head quality of a sound at reproduction of records worsens. In order to avoid it it is necessary periodically, through each 30 business hours cassette decks, to make cleaning of a magnetic head.

If you do not look after properly for cassette wild and regularly to clean a magnetic head with the specified periodicity, it can turn out so that the ordinary cleaning cartridge is unable remove the collected pollution.

Cassette a deck of your autoradio tape recorder it is calculated on use of audiocassettes with duration of record to 100 minutes. Application of more capacious audiocassettes with a thin magnetic film can lead to refusal cassette decks or to film damage.

Attentively examine an audiocassette before inserting it into a reception window decks. If the magnetic film was partially unwound from the coil, tighten it, rotating a coil nave in the relevant party by means of a pencil or fingers.

If the paper sticker of an audiocassette departed, glue or remove it completely. Otherwise the lagged behind sticker can lead to audiocassette jamming in attempt to take it from decks.

Do not leave an audiocassette in such places where they are exposed to influence of high temperature or high humidity, for example, on the top shelf of the control panel or in the most cassette a deck. If the audiocassette was heated strongly up or overcooled, do not insert it in cassette to a deck until its temperature is not normalized.
