1.16.2. Central blocking


Blocking of doors, back door or door of a luggage carrier, folding cover of a tank

To turn a key in the lock at the driver's doors back and then to return to vertical position or to press a clamp on the driver's door.

To turn a key in the lock of a door of the driver forward and then to return to vertical position or to extend up a clamp on the driver's door.

The pressed clamp of an open door jumps out when closing up: at the same time all doors will be unblocked (protection from blocking).

If when closing the handle of a door is wrung out, the clamp does not jump out up.
The recorded doors will be unblocked at accident independently (for assistance outside) – a condition: it is impossible to switch off ignition.

At an overload due to frequent inclusions through short periods power supply on a comment 30 sec. will be interrupted.

At electronic control by forward and back windows closing of windows outside is possible (except in Cabrib): to hold a key in the provision of closing of a door until windows are not closed.

Mechanical anticreeping protection

Blocking: when closing a door of the driver to turn a key in situation A and to withdraw it. All doors are blocked.


Not to block if people are in the car! The unblocking is impossible FROM WITHIN.

Unblocking: to turn a key in the lock of a door of the driver to situation B and to pull out a key.

Any other measures the unblocking of doors is impossible therefore to store a spare key in the reliable place!

Back door, trunk lid

It is blocked: at vertical position a vent in the lock.

It is unblocked: at horizontal position a vent in the lock.

The lock opens by pressing its head.

For closing of a back door on its inside there is a capture.

Open back door, open trunk lid

In transit large-size freights it is not necessary to make a trip with an open or lean-to trunk lid (an open or lean-to door of a back) as because of turbulences of air streams poisonous exhaust gases can get in salon.

Caravan: If there is no other opportunity, to open a back door only so that the nomerny sign was always visible.

Installation of various devices of production of Opel on a back door or a trunk lid increases their weight. Therefore if they are not fixed in open situation any more, it is necessary to address in an authorized workshop of Opel for installation of the strengthened springs.

Central blocking of a back door or trunk lid

The central blocking and anticreeping protection cannot be included or switched off via locks of a back door or trunk lid.

At horizontal position a lock head vent the blocking / unblocking of a back door or a trunk lid and a cover of a gasoline tank occurs along with a blocking / unblocking of one of forward doors.

At vertical position a lock head vent the back door and a trunk lid remain blocked even in that case when one of forward doors is unblocked.
