Start by pushing or towage

Cars with electronic system of injection or automatic transmission

In this case your engine cannot be started pushing or towage of the car. Use the auxiliary battery or the battery of other car and auxiliary cables.

Cars with the manual transmission


For start of the car – provided that the battery is not discharged – it is necessary to implement the following items for preparation of the car. To avoid damages, check that bumpers of both cars were at one height, protect bumpers covers or other slips.
  1. Switch-off all unnecessary electric devices.
  2. Install the ignition key in situation "ON (II)".
  3. Before pushing squeeze out coupling and include the third transfer.
  4. When the car accelerates to speed about 15 km/h slowly include coupling and half squeeze out the accelerator pedal until the engine is started.

Do not start the car at all towage as because of sudden breakthrough forward at start of the engine both cars can be damaged.

Too weak battery can be revealed on the following signs (on diesel cars):

  • Refusal of candles of an incandescence (at an external temperature below 20 °C).
  • The valve of interruption in supply of fuel remains open. In both cases the engine cannot be started.
