The driver’s primary responsibility is the safe operation of the vehicle. Driving while distracted can
result in loss of vehicle control, resulting in a collision and personal injury. Chrysler Group LLC
strongly recommends that the driver use extreme caution when using any device or feature that may
take their attention off the road. Use of any electrical devices such as cell phones, computers,
portable radios, vehicle navigation or other devices by the driver while the vehicle is moving is
dangerous and could lead to a serious collision. Texting while driving is also dangerous and should
never be done while the vehicle is moving. If you find yourself unable to devote your full attention to
vehicle operation, pull off the road to a safe location and stop your vehicle. Some States or Provinces
prohibit the use of cellular telephones or texting while driving. It is always the driver’s responsibility
to comply with all local laws.
1135181_13a_Dodge_ Journey_User_Guide_051512.indd 2
driving and alcohol
Drunken driving is one of the most frequent causes
of accidents. Your driving ability can be seriously impaired with
blood alcohol levels far below the legal minimum. If you are
drinking, don’t drive. Ride with a designated non-drinking driver,
call a cab, a friend, or use public transportation.
WARNING!
Driving after drinking can lead to an accident. Your perceptions
are less sharp, your reflexes are slower, and your judgment is
impaired when you have been drinking. Never drink and then drive.

INTRODUCTION/WELCOME
WELCOME FROM CHRYSLER GROUP LLC
Congratulations on selecting your new Chrysler Group LLC vehicle. Be assured that it
represents precision workmanship, distinctive styling, and high quality - all essentials that
are traditional to our vehicles.
Your new Chrysler Group LLC vehicle has characteristics to enhance the driver's control
under some driving conditions. These are to assist the driver and are never a substitute for
attentive driving. They can never take the driver's place. Always drive carefully.
Your new vehicle has many features for the comfort and convenience of you and your
passengers. Some of these should not be used when driving because they take your eyes
from the road or your attention from driving. Never text while driving or take your eyes more
than momentarily off the road.
This guide illustrates and describes the operation of features and equipment that are either
standard or optional on this vehicle. This guide may also include a description of features
and equipment that are no longer available or were not ordered on this vehicle. Please
disregard any features and equipment described in this guide that are not available on this
vehicle. Chrysler Group LLC reserves the right to make changes in design and specifications and/or make additions to or improvements to its products without imposing any
obligation upon itself to install them on products previously manufactured.
This User Guide has been prepared to help you quickly become acquainted with the
important features of your vehicle. It contains most things you will need to operate and
maintain the vehicle, including emergency information.
The DVD includes a computer application containing detailed owner's information which
can be viewed on a personal computer or MAC computer. The multimedia DVD also includes
videos which can be played on any standard DVD player (including the Media Center
Touch-Screen Radios). Additional DVD operational information is located on the back of the
DVD sleeve.
For complete owner information, refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD in the owner’s
kit provided at the time of new vehicle purchase. For your convenience, the information
contained on the DVD may also be printed and saved for future reference.
Chrysler Group LLC is committed to protecting our environment and natural resources. By
converting from paper to electronic delivery for the majority of the user information for your
vehicle, together we greatly reduce the demand for tree-based products and lessen the
stress on our environment.

•
Pedals that cannot move freely can cause loss of vehicle control and increase the
risk of serious personal injury.
Always make sure that objects cannot fall into the driver foot well while the vehicle is
moving. Objects can become trapped under the brake pedal and accelerator pedal
causing a loss of vehicle control.
Failure to properly follow floor mat installation or mounting can cause interference
with the brake pedal and accelerator pedal operation causing loss of control of the
vehicle.
Never use the ‘PARK’ position as a substitute for the parking brake. Always apply the
parking brake fully when parked to guard against vehicle movement and possible
injury or damage.
Refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details.
USE OF AFTERMARKET PRODUCTS (ELECTRONICS)
The use of aftermarket devices including cell phones, MP3 players, GPS systems, or
chargers may affect the performance of on-board wireless features including Keyless
Enter-N-Go™ and Remote Start range. If you are experiencing difficulties with any of your
wireless features, try disconnecting your aftermarket devices to see if the situation
improves. If your symptoms persist, please see an authorized dealer.

WARNING!
•
•
•
When leaving the vehicle, always remove the key fob from the ignition and lock your
vehicle.
Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle.
Allowing children to be in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a number of reasons.
A child or others could be seriously or fatally injured. Children should be warned not
to touch the parking brake, brake pedal or the shift lever.
Do not leave the key fob in or near the vehicle (or in a location accessible to children),

GETTING STARTED
WARNING!
•
•
Do not start or run an engine in a closed garage or confined area. Exhaust gas
contains Carbon Monoxide (CO) which is odorless and colorless. Carbon Monoxide is
poisonous and can cause you or others to be severely injured or killed when inhaled.
Keep Key Fob transmitters away from children. Operation of the Remote Start
System, windows, door locks or other controls could cause you and others to be
severely injured or killed.
KEYLESS ENTER-N-GO™
• The Keyless Enter-N-Go™ system is an enhancement to the vehicle's Key Fob. This
feature allows you to lock and unlock the vehicle's door(s) and liftgate without having to
press the Key Fob lock or unlock buttons, as well as starting and stopping the vehicle with
the press of a button.
To Unlock From The Driver or Passenger Side:
• With a valid Keyless Enter-N-Go™ Key Fob located outside the vehicle and within 5 ft
(1.5m) of the driver or passenger side door handle, grab either front door handle to unlock
the door automatically.
To Lock the Vehicle:
• Both front door handles have LOCK buttons
located on the outside of the handle. With
one of the vehicle's Keyless Enter-N-Go™
Key Fobs located outside the vehicle and
within 5 feet (1.5 meters) of the driver's or
passenger front door handle, press the
door handle LOCK button to lock all four
doors and liftgate.
NOTE:
• If “Unlock All Doors 1st Press” is programmed all doors will unlock when you
grab hold of the front driver's door handle.
To select between “Unlock Driver Door 1st
Press” and “Unlock All Doors 1st Press,”
refer to the Uconnect Touch™ Settings in
your vehicle's Owner's Manual on the DVD
or Programmable Features in this guide
for further information.
9
GETTING STARTED

press the liftgate button. If “Unlock Driver Door 1st Press” is programmed only the liftgate
will unlock when you press the liftgate button. To select between “Unlock Driver Door 1st
Press” and “Unlock All Doors 1st Press”, refer to the Uconnect Touch™ Settings in your
vehicle's Owner's Manual on the DVD or Programmable Features in this guide for further
information.
• If a Key Fob is detected in the vehicle when locking the vehicle using the power door lock
switch, the doors and liftgate will unlock and the horn will chirp three times. On the third
attempt, your Key Fob can be locked inside the vehicle.
• After pressing the Keyless Enter-N-Go™ LOCK button, you must wait 2 seconds before
you can lock or unlock the vehicle using the door handle. This is done to allow you to
check if the vehicle is locked by pulling the door handle, without the vehicle reacting and
unlocking.
• If a Keyless Enter-N-Go™ door handle has not been used for 72 hours, the Keyless
Enter-N-Go™ feature for that handle may time out. Pulling the deactivated front door
handle will reactivate the door handle's Keyless Enter-N-Go™ feature.

within 3 feet (1 meter) of the liftgate, press
the button located to the left of the liftgate
handle to unlock the liftgate. Press the
button a second time to lock the liftgate.
NOTE:

GETTING STARTED
THEFT ALARM
To Arm:
• Press the Keyless Enter-N-Go™ Start/Stop button until the Electronic Vehicle Information
Center (EVIC) indicates that the vehicle ignition is “OFF”. Press the power door lock
switch while the door is open, press the Key Fob LOCK button, or with one of the Key Fobs
located outside the vehicle and within 5 ft (1.5 m) of the driver's and passenger front door
handles, press the Keyless Enter-N-Go™ LOCK button located on the door handle.
NOTE:
After pressing the Keyless Enter-N-Go™ LOCK button, you must wait two seconds before
you can lock or unlock the vehicle via the door handle.
To Disarm:
• Press the Key Fob UNLOCK button or with one of the Key Fobs located outside the vehicle
and within 5 ft (1.5 m) of the driver's and passenger front door handles, grab the Keyless
Enter-N-Go™ door handle and enter the vehicle, then press the Keyless Enter-N-Go™
Start/Stop button (requires at least one valid Key Fob in the vehicle).
SEAT BELT
• Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly.
• Position the lap belt across your thighs, below your abdomen. To remove slack in the lap
portion, pull up a bit on the shoulder belt. To loosen the lap belt if it is too tight, tilt the latch
plate and pull on the lap belt. A snug belt reduces the risk of sliding under the belt in a
collision.
• Position the shoulder belt on your chest so that it is comfortable and not resting on your
neck. The retractor will withdraw any slack in the belt.
• A shoulder belt placed behind you will not protect you from injury during a collision. You
are more likely to hit your head in a collision if you do not wear your shoulder belt. The lap
and shoulder belt are meant to be used together.
• A belt that is too loose will not protect you properly. In a sudden stop you could move too
far forward, increasing the possibility of injury. Wear your seat belt snugly.
• A frayed or torn belt could rip apart in a collision and leave you with no protection. Inspect the
belt system periodically, checking for cuts, frays, or loose parts. Damaged parts must be
replaced immediately. Do not disassemble or modify the system. Seat belt assemblies must
be replaced after a collision if they have been damaged (bent retractor, torn webbing, etc.).
• The seat belts for both front seating positions are equipped with pretensioning devices
that are designed to remove slack from the seat belt in the event of a collision.
• A deployed pretensioner or a deployed air bag must be replaced immediately.
WARNING!
In a collision, you and your passengers can suffer much greater injuries if you are not
buckled up properly. You can strike the interior of your vehicle or other passengers, or you
can be thrown out of the vehicle. Always be sure you and others in your vehicle are
buckled up properly.
12
GETTING STARTED
SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) — AIR BAGS
• This vehicle has Advanced Front Air Bags for both the driver and right front passenger as
a supplement to the seat belt restraint system. The Advanced Front Air Bags will not
deploy in every type of collision.
• Advanced Front Air Bags are designed to provide additional protection by supplementing
the seat belts in certain frontal collisions depending on several factors, including the
severity and type of collision. Advanced Front Air Bags are not expected to reduce the
risk of injury in rear, side, or rollover collisions.
• This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtains to protect the
driver, front and rear passengers sitting next to a window.
• This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Air Bags to provide
enhanced protection to help protect an occupant during a side impact.
• This vehicle is equipped with a Supplemental Driver Side Knee Air Bag to provide enhanced protection and work together with the Driver Advanced Front Air Bag during a
frontal impact.
is not on during starting, stays on, or turns on while
• If the Air Bag Warning Light
driving, have the vehicle serviced by an authorized service center immediately.
• Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details regarding the Supplemental
Restraint System (SRS).
WARNING!
•
•
•
•
•
•
Relying on the air bags alone could lead to more severe injuries in a collision. The air
bags work with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In some collisions, the air bags
won't deploy at all. Always wear your seat belts even though you have air bags.
Being too close to the steering wheel or instrument panel during Advanced Front Air
Bag deployment could cause serious injury, including death. Air bags need room to
inflate. Sit back, comfortably extending your arms to reach the steering wheel or
instrument panel.
Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtains and Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side
Air Bags need room to inflate. Do not lean against the door or window. Sit upright in
the center of the seat.
Being too close to the Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtain and/or SeatMounted Side Air Bag during deployment could cause you to be severely injured or killed.
Do not drive your vehicle after the air bags have deployed. If you are involved in
another collision, the air bags will not be in place to protect you.
After any collision, the vehicle should be taken to an authorized dealer immediately.
13
GETTING STARTED
CHILD RESTRAINTS
• Children 12 years and under should ride properly buckled up in a rear seat, if available.
According to crash statistics, children are safer when properly restrained in the rear
seats rather than in the front.
• Every state in the United States and all Canadian provinces require that small children
ride in proper restraint systems. This is the law, and you can be prosecuted for ignoring it.
Integrated Child Booster Seat
• The Integrated Child Booster Seat is located in each outboard second-row passenger seat.
NOTE:
Refer to the Integrated Child Booster Seat information label located on the front lower panel
of the opened Booster Seat for child weight specifications.
• To position a child into the Integrated Child Booster Seat follow these steps:
• Slide the second row seat to the full rear position to use the Integrated Child Booster
Seat.
NOTE:
The second row bench with Integrated Child Booster Seat must remain in the full rear
position during use.
• Pull the release loop forward to release the latch and seat cushion.
• Lift the seat cushion up and push back
to lock it in the booster seat position.
• Place the child upright in the seat with
their back firmly against the seatback.
• Grasp the latch plate and pull out the
seat belt.
• Slide the latch plate up the webbing as
far as necessary to allow the seat belt to
go around the child’s lap.
NOTE:
The lap portion of the seat belt should be low
on the hips and as snug as possible.
• Once the seat belt is long enough to fit
properly, insert the latch plate into the
buckle until you hear a “click.”
• To remove the slack from the lap belt,
pull upward on the shoulder portion of
the seat belt.
14
GETTING STARTED
Installing The LATCH - Compatible Child Restraint System
• Your vehicle’s second row passenger seats are equipped with the child restraint anchorage system called LATCH, which stands for Lower Anchors and Tether for CHildren.
• All three second-row passenger seating positions have lower anchors that are capable of
accommodating LATCH-compatible child seats.
• Rigid fixed lower attachments can only be used in the outboard seating positions.
Flexible lower attachments can be used in all seating positions.
• When installing a child seat in the center seating position use one lower anchorage from
the outboard seating position and the center seat dedicated lower anchorage. If two
child seats are installed in adjacent seating positions you must use the vehicle seat belt
in the center seating position.
• You should NEVER install LATCH-compatible child seats so that two seats share a
common lower anchorage.
Installing The Lower Attachments:
• The vehicle lower anchorages are round bars located at the rear of the seat cushion where
it meets the seatback.
• Loosen the child seat adjusters on the
lower straps and on the tether strap so
that you can more easily attach the hooks
or connectors to the vehicle anchors.
• Attach the lower hooks or connectors over
the top of the seatcover material.
• Tighten all three straps as you push the
child restraint rearward and downward
into the seat, removing slack in the straps
according to the child restraint manufacturer’s instructions.
Installing The Top Tether Strap (With Either Lower Anchors Or Vehicle Seat Belt):
• Attach the tether strap to the anchor directly behind the seat where you are placing the
child restraint, being careful to route the tether strap to provide the most direct path
between the anchor and the child restraint, preferably between the head restraint posts
underneath the head restraint.
• Remove all slack and tighten tether strap
according to child restraint manufacturer’s instructions.
NOTE:
Ensure that the tether strap does not slip
into the opening between the seatbacks as
you remove slack in the strap.

Installing The Child Restraint Using The Vehicle Seat Belts
• To install a child restraint, first, pull enough of the seat belt webbing from the retractor to
route it through the belt path of the child restraint and slide the latch plate into the
buckle.
• Next, extract all the seat belt webbing out of the retractor and then allow the belt to retract
into the retractor. Finally, pull on any excess webbing to tighten the lap portion around the
child restraint. Any seat belt system will loosen with time, so check the belt occasionally,
and pull it tight if necessary.
• Route the tether strap to provide the most direct path for the strap between the anchor
and the child seat, preferably between the head restraint posts underneath the head
restraint.
• Attach the tether strap hook of the child restraint to the tether anchor and remove slack
in the tether strap according to the child restraint manufacturer's instructions.
NOTE:
Ensure that the tether strap does not slip into the opening between the seatbacks as you
remove slack in the strap.

In a collision, an unrestrained child, even a tiny baby, can become a projectile inside
the vehicle. The force required to hold even an infant on your lap could become so
great that you could not hold the child, no matter how strong you are. The child and
others could be severely injured or killed. Any child riding in your vehicle should be in
a proper restraint for the child's size.
Rearward-facing child seats must NEVER be used in the front seat of a vehicle with a
front passenger air bag. An air bag deployment could cause severe injury or death to
infants in this position.
Improper installation of a child restraint to the LATCH anchorages can lead to failure
of an infant or child restraint. The child could be severely injured or killed. Follow the
manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or child restraint.
An incorrectly anchored tether strap could lead to increased head motion and
possible injury to the child. Use only the anchor positions directly behind the child
seat to secure a child restraint top tether strap.

23
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
ENGINE BREAK-IN RECOMMENDATIONS
• A long break-in period is not required for the engine and drivetrain (transmission and axle)
in your vehicle.
• Drive moderately during the first 300 miles (500 km). After the initial 60 miles (100 km),
speeds up to 50 or 55 mph (80 or 90 km/h) are desirable.
• While cruising, brief full-throttle acceleration within the limits of local traffic laws contributes to a good break-in. Wide-open throttle acceleration in low gear can be detrimental and should be avoided.
• The engine oil installed in the engine at the factory is a high-quality energy conserving
type lubricant. Oil changes should be consistent with anticipated climate conditions
under which vehicle operations will occur. For the recommended viscosity and quality
grades, refer to “Maintaining Your Vehicle”.
NOTE:
A new engine may consume some oil during its first few thousand miles (kilometers) of
operation. This should be considered a normal part of the break-in and not interpreted as an
indication of difficulty.
CAUTION!
Never use Non-Detergent Oil or Straight Mineral Oil in the engine or damage may result.

PLAYING iPod/USB/MP3 DEVICES
• There are many ways to play music from iPod®/MP3 players or USB devices through your
vehicle's sound system.
1. Audio Jack
• The Audio Jack, located in the center console, allows a portable device, such as an MP3
player or an iPod, to be plugged into the radio and utilize the vehicle’s sound system,
using a 3.5 mm audio cable, to amplify the source and play through the vehicle speakers.
• Touching the Player soft-key then choose AUX source will change the mode to auxiliary
device if the Audio Jack is connected, allowing the music from your portable device to be
heard through the vehicle's speakers.
• The functions of the portable device are controlled using the device buttons. The volume
may be controlled using the radio or portable device.
• To route the audio cable out of the center console, use the access cut out in the front of
the console.
2. USB Port
• Connect your iPod® or compatible device using a USB cable into the USB Port. The USB
Port is contained within the center console. USB Memory sticks with audio files can also
be used. Then, audio from the device can be played on the vehicles sound system while
providing metadata (artist, track title, album, etc.) information on the radio display.
• When connected, the iPod®/compatible USB device can be controlled using the radio or
Steering Wheel Audio Controls to play, skip to the next or previous track, browse, and list
the contents.
48
ELECTRONICS
• The iPod® battery charges when plugged into the USB port (if supported by the specific
device).
• To route the USB/iPod® cable out of the center console, use the access cut out in the front
of the console.
NOTE:
• When connecting your iPod® device for the first time, the system may take several
minutes to read your music, depending on the number of files. For example, the system
will take approximately 5 minutes for every 1000 songs loaded on the device. Also during
the reading process, the Shuffle and Browse functions will be disabled. This process is
needed to ensure the full use of your iPod® features and only happens the first time it is
connected. After the first time, the reading process of your iPod® will take considerably
less time unless changes are made or new songs are added to the playlist.
• The USB port supports certain Mini, Classic, Nano, Touch, and iPhone® devices. The USB
port also supports playing music from compatible external USB Mass Storage Class
memory devices. Some iPod® software versions may not fully support the USB port
features. Please visit Apple’s website for iPod® software updates.
3. SD Card (8.4 & 8.4N Only)
• Play songs stored on an SD card inserted into the SD card slot, located on the radio
faceplate.
• Song playback can be controlled using the radio or Steering Wheel Audio Controls to play,
skip to the next or previous track, browse, and list the contents.
4. Bluetooth® Streaming Audio
• If equipped with Uconnect™ Voice Command, your Bluetooth-equipped iPod® devices,
cell phones or other media players, may also be able to stream music to your vehicle's
sound system. Your connected device must be Bluetooth-compatible, and paired with
your Uconnect Touch® system (see Uconnect™ Phone for pairing instructions). You can

ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE
• Dial toll-free 1-800-521-2779 for U.S. Residents or 1-800-363-4869 for Canadian Residents.
• Provide your name, vehicle identification number, license plate number, and your location,
including the telephone number from which you are calling.
• Briefly describe the nature of the problem and answer a few simple questions.
• You will be given the name of the service provider and an estimated time of arrival. If you feel
you are in an “unsafe situation”, please let us know. With your consent, we will contact local
police or safety authorities.
INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WARNING LIGHTS
- Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light
• If this indicator light flashes during acceleration, apply as little throttle as possible. While
driving, ease up on the accelerator. Adapt your speed and driving to the prevailing road
conditions. To improve the vehicle's traction when starting off in deep snow, sand or
gravel, it may be desirable to switch the ESC system off.
- Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Light
• Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly, when cold and
inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the
vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a different size
than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should
determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires.)
• As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more of your
tires is significantly under-inflated. Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale
illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to
the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to
overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire
tread life, and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability.
• IF THE LIGHT STARTS FLASHING INDICATING A LOW TIRE PRESSURE, ADJUST THE
AIR PRESSURE IN THE LOW TIRE TO THE AIR PRESSURE SHOWN ON THE VEHICLE
PLACARD OR TIRE INFLATION PRESSURE LABEL LOCATED ON THE DRIVER'S DOOR.
NOTE: AFTER INFLATION, THE VEHICLE MAY NEED TO BE DRIVEN FOR 20 MINUTES
BEFORE THE FLASHING LIGHT WILL TURN OFF.
• Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the
driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not
reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.
65
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction indicator to indicate when
the system is not operating properly. The TPMS malfunction indicator is combined with the
low tire pressure telltale. When the system detects a malfunction, the telltale will flash for
approximately one minute and then remain continuously illuminated. This sequence will
continue each time the vehicle is restarted as long as the malfunction exists.
• When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may not be able to detect or
signal low tire pressure as intended. TPMS malfunctions may occur for a variety of reasons,
including the installation of replacement or alternate tires or wheels on the vehicle that
prevent the TPMS from functioning properly. Always check the TPMS malfunction telltale
after replacing one or more tires or wheels on your vehicle, to ensure that the replacement
or alternate tires and wheels allow the TPMS to continue to function properly.
NOTE:
Tire pressures change by approximately 1 psi (7 kPa) per 12° F (7° C) of air temperature change.
Keep this in mind when checking tire pressure inside a garage, especially in the Winter.
Example: If garage temperature is 68°F (20°C) and the outside temperature is 32°F (0°C), then
the cold tire inflation pressure should be increased by 3 psi (21 kPa), which equals 1 psi (7 kPa)
for every 12°F (7°C) for this outside temperature condition.
CAUTION!
The TPMS has been optimized for the original equipment tires and wheels. TPMS
pressures and warning have been established for the tire size equipped on your vehicle.
Undesirable system operation or sensor damage may result when using replacement
equipment that is not of the same size, type, and/or style. Aftermarket wheels can cause
sensor damage. Do not use tire sealant from a can, or balance beads if your vehicle is
equipped with a TPMS, as damage to the sensors may result.
- Engine Temperature Warning Light
• This light warns of an overheated engine condition.
• If the light turns on and a warning chime sounds while driving, safely pull over and stop the
vehicle. If the A/C system is on, turn it off. Also, shift the transmission into NEUTRAL and
idle the vehicle. If the temperature reading does not return to normal, turn the engine off
immediately.
• We recommend that you do not operate the vehicle or engine damage will occur. Have the
vehicle serviced immediately.
WARNING!
A hot engine cooling system is dangerous. You or others could be badly burned by steam
or boiling coolant. You may want to call an authorized dealer for service if your vehicle
overheats.
66
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
BRAKE - Brake Warning Light
• The Brake Warning light illuminates when there is either a system malfunction or the
parking brake is applied. If the light is on and the parking brake is not applied, it indicates
a possible brake hydraulic malfunction, brake booster problem or an Anti-Lock Brake
System problem.
• Please have your vehicle serviced immediately.
WARNING!
Driving a vehicle with the red brake light on is dangerous. Part of the brake system may
have failed. It will take longer to stop the vehicle. You could have a collision. Have the
vehicle checked immediately.
- Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL)
• Certain conditions, such as a loose or missing gas cap, poor fuel quality, etc., may
illuminate the MIL after engine start. The vehicle should be serviced if the light stays on
through several typical driving cycles. In most situations, the vehicle will drive normally
and not require towing.
• If the MIL flashes when the engine is running, serious conditions may exist that could lead
to immediate loss of power or severe catalytic converter damage. We recommend you do
not operate the vehicle. Have the vehicle serviced immediately.
- Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Malfunction Indicator Light
• If the ESC indicator light comes on continuously with the engine running, a malfunction
has been detected.
• If this light remains on after several ignition cycles, and the vehicle has been driven
several miles (kilometers) at speeds greater than 30 mph (48 km/h), we recommend you
drive to the nearest service center and have the vehicle serviced immediately.
- Charging System Light
• This light shows the status of the electrical charging system. If the charging system light
remains on, it means that the vehicle is experiencing a problem with the charging
system.
• We recommend you do not continue driving if the charging system light is on. Have the
vehicle serviced immediately.
- Oil Pressure Warning Light
• This light indicates low engine oil pressure. If the light turns on while driving, stop the
vehicle and shut off the engine as soon as possible. A chime will sound for four minutes
when this light turns on.
• We recommend you do not operate the vehicle or engine damage will occur. Have the
vehicle serviced immediately.
67
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
- Anti-Lock Brake (ABS) Light
• This light monitors the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS).
• If the light is not on during starting, stays on, or turns on while driving, we recommend you
drive to the nearest service center and have the vehicle serviced immediately.
- Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) Light
• This light informs you of a problem with the Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) system.
• If a problem is detected, the light will come on while the engine is running. Cycle the
ignition when the vehicle has completely stopped and the shift lever is placed in the
PARK position; the light should turn off.
• If the light remains lit with the engine running, your vehicle will usually be drivable;
however, see an authorized service center immediately. If the light is flashing when the
engine is running, immediate service is required and you may experience reduced
performance, an elevated/rough idle or engine stall and your vehicle may require towing.
- Air Bag Warning Light

68
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
IF YOUR ENGINE OVERHEATS
• In any of the following situations, you can reduce the potential for overheating by taking
the appropriate action.
• On the highways — slow down.
• In city traffic — while stopped, place the transmission in NEUTRAL, but do not increase
engine idle speed.
NOTE:
There are steps that you can take to slow down an impending overheat condition:
• If your air conditioner (A/C) is on, turn it off. The A/C system adds heat to the engine
cooling system and turning the A/C off can help remove this heat.
• You can also turn the temperature control to maximum heat, the mode control to floor
and the blower control to high. This allows the heater core to act as a supplement to the
radiator and aids in removing heat from the engine cooling system.
CAUTION!
Driving with a hot cooling system could damage your vehicle. If the temperature gauge
reads 240°F (116 °C) or greater pull over and stop the vehicle. Idle the vehicle with the air
conditioner turned off until the pointer drops back into the normal range 200–230°F
(93–110°C). If the pointer remains at 240°F (116°C) or greater and you hear a chime, turn
the engine off immediately and call for service.
WARNING!
You or others can be badly burned by hot engine coolant (antifreeze) or steam from your
radiator. If you see or hear steam coming from under the hood, do not open the hood until
the radiator has had time to cool. Never try to open a cooling system pressure cap when
the radiator or coolant bottle is hot.

Do not attempt to change a tire on the side of the vehicle close to moving traffic. Pull
far enough off the road to avoid the danger of being hit when operating the jack or
changing the wheel.
Being under a jacked-up vehicle is dangerous. The vehicle could slip off the jack and
fall on you. You could be crushed. Never put any part of your body under a vehicle that
is on a jack. If you need to get under a raised vehicle, take it to an authorized service
center where it can be raised on a lift.
Never start or run the engine while the vehicle is on a jack.
The jack is designed to be used as a tool for changing tires only. The jack should not
be used to lift the vehicle for service purposes. The vehicle should be jacked on a firm
level surface only. Avoid ice or slippery areas.
Carefully follow these tire changing warnings to help prevent personal injury or
damage to your vehicle:
Always park on a firm, level surface as far from the edge of the roadway as possible
before raising the vehicle.
Turn on the Hazard Warning flasher.
Block the wheel diagonally opposite the wheel to be raised.
Set the parking brake firmly and set an automatic transmission in PARK.
Do not let anyone sit in the vehicle when it is on a jack.
Do not get under the vehicle when it is on a jack.
Only use the jack in the positions indicated and for lifting this vehicle during a tire
change.
If working on or near a roadway, be extremely careful of motor traffic.
To assure that spare tires, flat or inflated, are securely stowed, spares must be
stowed with the valve stem facing the ground.
Raising the vehicle higher than necessary can make the vehicle less stable. It could
slip off the jack and hurt someone near it. Raise the vehicle only enough to remove
the tire.
To avoid possible personal injury, handle the wheel covers with care to avoid contact
with any sharp edges.
To avoid the risk of forcing the vehicle off the jack, do not tighten the wheel nuts fully
until the vehicle has been lowered. Failure to follow this warning may result in
personal injury.
A loose tire or jack, thrown forward in a collision or hard stop could endanger the
occupants of the vehicle. Always stow the jack parts and the spare tire in the places
provided. Have the deflated (flat) tire repaired or replaced immediately.

WARNING!
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
When temperatures are below the freezing point, electrolyte in a discharged battery
may freeze. Do not attempt jump-starting because the battery could rupture or
explode and cause personal injury. Battery temperature must be brought above the
freezing point before attempting a jump-start.
Take care to avoid the radiator cooling fan whenever the hood is raised. It can start
anytime the ignition switch is on. You can be injured by moving fan blades.
Remove any metal jewelry, such as watch bands or bracelets, that might make an
inadvertent electrical contact. You could be severely injured.
Batteries contain sulfuric acid that can burn your skin or eyes and generate hydrogen
gas which is flammable and explosive. Keep open flames or sparks away from the
battery.
Do not allow vehicles to touch each other as this could establish a ground connection
and personal injury could result.
Failure to follow this procedure could result in personal injury or property damage
due to battery explosion.

WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
FREEING A STUCK VEHICLE
• If your vehicle becomes stuck in mud, sand or snow, it can often be moved using a rocking
motion. Turn your steering wheel right and left to clear the area around the front wheels.
Then shift back and forth between DRIVE and REVERSE while gently pressing the
accelerator. Use the least amount of accelerator pedal pressure that will maintain the
rocking motion, without spinning the wheels or racing the engine.
NOTE:
Press the "ESC Off" switch, to place the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system in "Partial
Off" mode before rocking the vehicle. Once the vehicle has been freed, press the "ESC Off"
switch again to restore "ESC On" mode.
CAUTION!
•
•
When “rocking” a stuck vehicle by moving between REVERSE and DRIVE, do not spin
the wheels faster than 15 mph (24 km/h), or drivetrain damage may result.
Revving the engine or spinning the wheels too fast may lead to transmission overheating and failure. It can also damage the tires. Do not spin the wheels above
30 mph (48 km/h) while in gear (no transmission shifting occurring).
WARNING!
Fast spinning tires can be dangerous. Forces generated by excessive wheel speeds may
cause tire damage or failure. A tire could explode and injure someone. Do not spin your
vehicle's wheels faster than 30 mph (48 km/h) when you are stuck. Do not let anyone
near a spinning wheel, no matter what the speed.

EVENT DATA RECORDER (EDR)
• This vehicle is equipped with an Event Data Recorder (EDR). The main purpose of an EDR
is to record, in certain crash or near crash-like situations, such as an air bag deployment
or hitting a road obstacle, data that will assist in understanding how a vehicle’s systems
performed. The EDR is designed to record data related to vehicle dynamics and safety
systems for a short period of time, typically 30 seconds or less. The EDR in this vehicle is
designed to record such data as:
• How various systems in your vehicle were operating;
• Whether or not the driver and passenger safety belts were buckled/fastened;
• How far (if at all) the driver was depressing the accelerator and/or brake pedal; and,
• How fast the vehicle was traveling.
• These data can help provide a better understanding of the circumstances in which
crashes and injuries occur.
NOTE:
EDR data are recorded by your vehicle only if a non-trivial crash situation occurs; no data are
recorded by the EDR under normal driving conditions and no personal data (e.g. name,
gender, age, and crash location) are recorded. However, other parties, such as law enforcement, could combine the EDR data with the type of personally identifying data routinely
acquired during a crash investigation.
• To read data recorded by an EDR, special equipment is required, and access to the vehicle
or the EDR is needed. In addition to the vehicle manufacturer, other parties such as law
enforcement, that have the special equipment, can read the information if they have
access to the vehicle or the EDR.

MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE
Your vehicle is equipped with an automatic oil change indicator system. The oil change
indicator system will remind you that it is time to take your vehicle in for scheduled
maintenance.
Based on engine operation conditions, the oil change indicator message will illuminate.
This means that service is required for your vehicle. Operating conditions such as frequent
short-trips, trailer tow, extremely hot or cold ambient temperatures, and E85 fuel usage will
influence when the “Change Oil” or “Oil Change Required” message is displayed. Severe
Operating Conditions can cause the change oil message to illuminate as early as 3,500
miles (5,600 km) since last reset. Have your vehicle serviced as soon as possible, within the
next 500 miles (805 km).
On Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) equipped vehicles, “Oil Change Required”
will be displayed in the EVIC and a single chime will sound, indicating that an oil change is
necessary.
On Non-EVIC equipped vehicles, “Change Oil” will flash in the instrument cluster odometer
and a single chime will sound, indicating that an oil change is necessary.
88
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
Your authorized dealer will reset the oil change indicator message after completing the
scheduled oil change. If a scheduled oil change is performed by someone other than your
authorized dealer, the message can be reset by referring to the steps described under
“Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)/Oil Change Required” in “Understanding Your
Instrument Panel” or under “Instrument Cluster Description/Odometer/Trip Odometer” in
“Understanding Your Instrument Panel” for further information.

TIRE PRESSURES
• Check the inflation pressure of each tire, including the spare tire, at least monthly and
inflate to the recommended pressure for your vehicle.
• The tire pressures recommended for your vehicle are found on the “Tire and Loading
Information” label located on the driver’s side door opening.
NOTE:
Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD for
more information regarding tire warnings
and instructions.
WARNING!
•
•
96
Overloading of your tires is dangerous. Overloading can cause tire failure, affect
vehicle handling, and increase your stopping distance. Use tires of the recommended load capacity for your vehicle. Never overload them.
Improperly inflated tires are dangerous and can cause collisions. Under-inflation is
the leading cause of tire failure and may result in severe cracking, component
separation, or “blow out”. Over-inflation reduces a tire’s ability to cushion shock.
Objects on the road and chuck holes can cause damage that results in tire failure.
Unequal tire pressures can cause steering problems. You could lose control of your
vehicle. Over-inflated or under-inflated tires can affect vehicle handling and can fail
suddenly, resulting in loss of vehicle control.
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
WHEEL AND WHEEL TRIM CARE
• All wheels and wheel trim, especially aluminum and chrome plated wheels, should be
cleaned regularly with a mild soap and water to prevent corrosion.
• To remove heavy soil and/or excessive brake dust, use MOPAR® Wheel Cleaner or
equivalent or select a non-abrasive, non-acidic cleaner.
CAUTION!
Do not use scouring pads, steel wool, a bristle brush, or metal polishes. Do not use oven
cleaner. These products may damage the wheel's protective finish. Avoid automatic car
washes that use acidic solutions or harsh brushes that may damage the wheel's protective finish. Only MOPAR® Wheel Cleaner or equivalent is recommended.

However, it is not a substitute for your Owner’s Manual.
For complete operational instructions, maintenance procedures and important
safety messages, please consult your Owner’s Manual, Navigation/Media Center
Manuals, Multimedia User Manual and other Warning Labels in your vehicle.
Not all features shown in this guide may apply to your vehicle. For additional
information on accessories to help personalize your vehicle, visit www.mopar.com
or your local Dodge dealer.
IMPORTANT
This User Guide is intended to familiarize you with the important features of your vehicle. The DVD
enclosed contains your Owner’s Manual, Navigation/Media Center Manuals, Warranty Booklets, Tire
Warranty and Roadside Assistance (new vehicles purchased in the U.S.) or Roadside Assistance

The driver’s primary responsibility is the safe operation of the vehicle. Driving while distracted can
result in loss of vehicle control, resulting in a collision and personal injury. Chrysler Group LLC
strongly recommends that the driver use extreme caution when using any device or feature that may
take their attention off the road. Use of any electrical devices such as cell phones, computers,
portable radios, vehicle navigation or other devices by the driver while the vehicle is moving is
dangerous and could lead to a serious collision. Texting while driving is also dangerous and should
never be done while the vehicle is moving. If you find yourself unable to devote your full attention to
vehicle operation, pull off the road to a safe location and stop your vehicle. Some States or Provinces
prohibit the use of cellular telephones or texting while driving. It is always the driver’s responsibility
to comply with all local laws.

driving and alcohol
Drunken driving is one of the most frequent causes
of accidents. Your driving ability can be seriously impaired with
blood alcohol levels far below the legal minimum. If you are
drinking, don’t drive. Ride with a designated non-drinking driver,
call a cab, a friend, or use public transportation.
WARNING!
Driving after drinking can lead to an accident. Your perceptions
are less sharp, your reflexes are slower, and your judgment is
impaired when you have been drinking. Never drink and then drive.
