AUTOMATIC HEADLAMP SYSTEM
INTELLIBEAM™ AUTOMATIC
HEADLAMPS (if equipped)
IntelliBeam uses a digital light
sensor behind the inside rearview
mirror to maximize forward night
vision. The system automatically
switches on the high-beam
headlamps when no other vehicle
traffic is present, and switches to
low beam intensity when the
headlamps or taillamps of other
vehicles are detected. The system
operates only when driving over
20 mph (32 km/h).
The system is turned on
automatically when the headlamp
system is set to AUTO and the turn
signal/multifunction lever is in the
low beam position.
To turn off the system, press the
(On/Off) button on the inside
rearview mirror. Press the button
again to turn the system back on.
Your vehicle is equipped with an
Automatic Headlamp System,
which automatically turns on the
Daytime Running Lamps (DRL)
during the day and the headlamps
and other exterior lamps at night
or when necessary.
The system uses a light sensor,
located on top of the instrument
panel, to determine light conditions.
For proper system operation, avoid
placing any objects on or near
the sensor.
Exterior Lamp Controls
The exterior lamps also can be
operated manually using the control
knob located on the left side of the
instrument panel. The knob can be
rotated to the following positions:

TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR
The Tire Pressure Monitor alerts
you when a significant reduction
in pressure occurs in one or more
of your vehicle’s tires by
illuminating the (Low Tire
Pressure) warning light on the
instrument panel cluster. The low
tire pressure warning light
will remain on until you correct
the tire pressure.
A CHECK TIRE PRESSURE message
may also appear on the DIC
(if equipped).
Correcting the Tire Pressure
When the low tire pressure warning
light illuminates, you must fill the
tire to the proper tire inflation
pressure (just as you must refuel
the vehicle when the low fuel
warning light illuminates). The Tire
and Loading Information label
shows the correct inflation pressure
for the tires when they’re cold.
“Cold” means your vehicle has been
sitting for at least three hours or
driven no more than one mile.
You can temporarily clear the DIC
message by acknowledging it with
your DIC controls. However, at the
next vehicle start-up, the DIC
message will reappear if the tire
pressure has not been corrected.
During cooler conditions, the low
tire pressure warning light may
appear when the vehicle is first
started and then turn off as you
start to drive the vehicle. This
could be an early indicator that
your tire pressures are getting
low and need to be inflated to the
proper pressure.
Note: The Tire Pressure Monitor can alert
you about low tire pressure, but it doesn’t
replace normal monthly tire maintenance.
