For blocking of steering to turn a steering wheel at the taken-out ignition key before click of fixing of a lock finger of steering.

Note
If after extraction of a key from the lock of ignition remained not switched off devices of lighting or the index of turn, then at the time of opening of a door of the driver the sound signal like "buzzer" will join.

Situation 2
If the key in the lock of ignition does not turn or turns hardly in this situation, it is necessary to shake a little a steering wheel to the left-to the right – the wheel will be unblocked.

Before each new attempt to launch the engine it is necessary to return the ignition key in situation 1. The device of blocking of repeated inclusion of a starter placed in the ignition lock prevents inclusion of a starter at rotation of a bent shaft of the engine and by that protects a starter from breakage.
