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.
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 24-Hour Towing Assistance (new vehicles
purchased in the U.S.) or Roadside Assistance (new vehicles purchased in Canada) in
electronic format. We hope you find it useful. If you are the first registered owner of your
vehicle, you may obtain a printed copy of the Owner’s Manual, Navigation/Media Center
Manuals or Warranty Booklet by calling 1-800-423-6343 (U.S.) or 1-800-387-1143

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.
The User Guide has been prepared to help you quickly become acquainted with the
important features of your vehicle. It contains most everything 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.
Vehicles Sold In Canada
With respect to any vehicles sold in Canada, the name Chrysler Group LLC shall be
deemed to be deleted and the name Chrysler Canada Inc. used in substitution
therefore.
WARNING!
• Pedals that cannot move freely can cause loss of vehicle control and increase
the risk of serious personal injury.

INTRODUCTION/WELCOME
WARNING!
(Continued)
• 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 Passive
Entry, Keyless 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.

GETTING STARTED
WARNING!
Leaving unattended children in a vehicle is dangerous for a number of reasons.
A child or others could be severely injured or killed. Children should be warned
not to touch the parking brake, brake pedal, or the shift lever. Do not leave the
Key Fob in the ignition. A child could operate power windows, other controls, or
move the vehicle.
REMOTE START
• Press the REMOTE START button x2 twice within five seconds. Pressing the
REMOTE START button a third time shuts the engine off.
• To drive the vehicle, press the UNLOCK button, insert the Key Fob in the ignition
and turn to the ON/RUN position.
• With remote start, the engine will only run for 15 minutes (timeout) unless the
ignition Key Fob is placed in the ON/RUN position.
• The vehicle must be started with the Key Fob after two consecutive timeouts.
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.
THEFT ALARM
To Arm
• Press the Key Fob LOCK button or the power door lock switch while the door is
open.
To Disarm
• Press the Key Fob UNLOCK button and turn the ignition to the ON/RUN position.
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.
9
GETTING STARTED
• 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 airbag 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.
SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) —
AIRBAGS
• This vehicle has Advanced Front Airbags for both the driver and right front
passenger as a supplement to the seat belt restraint system. The Advanced Front
Airbags will not deploy in every type of collision.
• Advanced Front Airbags are designed to provide additional protection by
supplementing the seat belts in certain frontal collisions depending on the severity
and type of collision. Advanced Front Airbags are not expected to reduce the risk
of injury in rear, side, or rollover collisions.
• This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Side Airbag Inflatable Curtains to
protect the driver, front and rear passengers sitting next to a window.
• This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Airbags to provide
enhanced protection to help protect an occupant during a side impact.
• If the Airbag Warning Light
is not on during starting, stays on, or turns on
while 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).
10
GETTING STARTED
WARNING!
• Relying on the airbags alone could lead to more severe injuries in a collision.
The airbags work with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In some
collisions, the airbags won't deploy at all. Always wear your seat belts even
though you have airbags.
• Being too close to the steering wheel or instrument panel during Advanced
Front Airbag deployment could cause serious injury, including death. Airbags
need room to inflate. Sit back, comfortably extending your arms to reach the
steering wheel or instrument panel.
• Supplemental Side Airbag Inflatable Curtains and Supplemental
Seat-Mounted Side Airbags 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 Airbag Inflatable Curtain and/or
Seat-Mounted Side Airbag during deployment could cause you to be severely
injured or killed.
• Do not drive your vehicle after the airbags have deployed. If you are involved
in another collision, the airbags will not be in place to protect you.
• After any collision, the vehicle should be taken to an authorized dealer
immediately.
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.
Installing The LATCH - Compatible Child Restraint System
• Each vehicle, except commercial cargo vehicles, is equipped with the child
restraint anchorage system called LATCH, which stands for Lower Anchors and
Tether for CHildren.
• Two LATCH child restraint anchorage systems are installed on all second-row seats
and in the center position on all third row fold-in-floor seats.
• Second-row seats also feature tether strap anchorages, located in the rear surface
of the seatback.
• In addition, all third row fold-in-floor seats are equipped with a child restraint
tether anchor at the center seating position.
11
GETTING STARTED
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 child restraint attachment straps
to ease the installation.
NOTE: It is recommended to loosen the top
tether strap and route it loosely prior to
securing the lower anchors so the top tether
strap is not trapped between the vehicle
seat and child restraint.
• Attach the lower child restraint attachment straps to the vehicle’s lower anchor
bars. Ensure that the lower attachment strap is firmly engaged and that the hook is
secure.
• Tighten the lower attachment strap while firmly pushing the child restraint
rearward and downward into the vehicle seat. Remove all slack in the lower
attachment straps.
Installing The Top Tether Strap (With Either Lower Anchors Or Vehicle Seat Belt):
• Route the top tether strap under the adjustable head restraint between the steel
posts.
• Provide enough slack for the tether
strap to reach the tether anchor
located near the bottom of the seat
back.
• Clip tether hook to tether anchor.
Ensure that the hook is firmly engaged
and secure.
• Remove all slack and tighten tether
strap according to child restraint
manufacturer’s instructions.
NOTE: The top tether strap is always to be secured, regardless of if the child restraint
is installed with the lower anchors or the vehicle seat belt.
12
GETTING STARTED
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.
• Once you have completed securing the child restraint with the seat belt, secure the
top tether strap.
WARNING!
• 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.
• Failure to comply with the following conditions could result in you and others
being severely injured or killed:
• 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.
• Rearward-facing child seats must never be used in the front seat of a vehicle
with a front passenger airbag. An airbag deployment could cause infants in
this position to be severely injured or killed.

preset settings. The memory seat buttons are located on the driver's door panel.
14
GETTING STARTED
• Adjust all memory profile settings, press the SET button then press 1 or 2 within
five seconds.
• To program a Key Fob to the memory position, press and release the LOCK button
within 10 seconds on the Key Fob to be programmed.
• Place the ignition switch in the ON position, select Remote Linked to Memory in

CAUTION!
DO NOT place any article under a power seat or impede its ability to move as it
may cause damage to the seat controls. Seat travel may become limited if
movement is stopped by an obstruction in the seat's path.
WARNING!
• Adjusting a seat while the vehicle is moving is dangerous. The sudden
movement of the seat could cause you to lose control. The seat belt might
not be properly adjusted, and you could be severely injured or killed. Only
adjust a seat while the vehicle is parked.
• Do not ride with the seatback reclined so that the seat belt is no longer
resting against your chest. In a collision, you could slide under the seat belt
and be severely injured or killed. Use the recliner only when the vehicle is
parked.
HEATED SEATS

located on the center instrument panel
area.
• Press the switch once to select
High-level heating. Press the switch a
second time to select Low-level
heating. Press the switch a third time

CAUTION!
Repeated overheating of the seat could damage the heating element and/or
degrade the material of the seat.
WARNING!
• Persons who are unable to feel pain to the skin because of advanced age,
chronic illness, diabetes, spinal cord injury, medication, alcohol use,
exhaustion or other physical conditions must exercise care when using the
seat heater. It may cause burns even at low temperatures, especially if used
for long periods of time.
• Do not place anything on the seat that insulates against heat, such as a
blanket or cushion. This may cause the seat heater to overheat. Sitting in a
seat that has been overheated could cause serious burns due to the increased
surface temperature of the seat.

16
GETTING STARTED
• Pull upward on the tilt lever to lock the column firmly in place.
WARNING!
Do not adjust the steering wheel while driving. The tilt adjustment must be
locked while driving. Adjusting the steering wheel while driving or driving

24-HOUR TOWING ASSISTANCE - U.S. ONLY
• Dial toll-free 1-800-521-2779 or 1-800-363-4869 for Canadian residents.
• Provide your name, vehicle identification number and license plate number.
• Provide your location, including 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) 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.
• 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.
• 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 upon subsequent vehicle
start-ups as long as the malfunction exists.
55
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• 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.
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 or flashes continuously 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 and call for service.
• 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 service center
for service if your vehicle overheats.
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.
• We recommend you drive to the nearest service center and have the vehicle
serviced immediately.
56
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
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) Indicator Light/Brake Assist System (BAS)
Warning Light
• If the ESC/BAS warning 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.
- 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.
57
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
- 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.
- Airbag Warning Light
• If the light is not on during starting, stays on, or turns on while driving, have the
vehicle serviced by an authorized service center immediately.
Fuel Cap/Loose Gas Cap Message

• Fully depress the accelerator pedal three times within 10 seconds.
• Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position.
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, shift transmission into NEUTRAL, but do not
increase engine idle speed.
58
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
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 Fan 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.
• 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.
CAUTION!
Driving with a hot cooling system could damage your vehicle. If the temperature
gauge reads HOT (H), pull over and stop the vehicle. Idle the vehicle with the
air conditioner turned off until the pointer drops back into the normal range. If
the pointer remains on HOT (H), and you hear continuous chimes, 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.

or changing the wheel.
• Getting under a jacked-up vehicle is dangerous. The vehicle could slip off the
jack and fall on you. You could be crushed. Never get 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 a service center where it can be raised on a lift.
• The jack is designed to use 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.
• If it is necessary to retrieve the spare tire from under the vehicle on the side
of the vehicle close to moving traffic, pull far enough off the road to avoid the
danger of being hit.
• The compact spare tire is for emergency use only. Installation of this compact
spare tire affects vehicle handling.
• Do not drive more than 50 mph (80 km/h) with a compact spare tire.
• Keep the compact spare tire inflated to the cold tire inflation pressure, listed
on either your tire placard or limited use spare tire and wheel assembly.
• Replace (or repair) the original tire at the first opportunity and reinstall it on
your vehicle. Failure to do so could result in loss of vehicle control.
• Carefully follow these tire changing procedures 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.
• Raising the vehicle higher than necessary can make the vehicle less stable
and could cause it to slip off the jack and hurt someone near it. Raise the
vehicle only enough to remove the tire.
• 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.

WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
JUMP-STARTING
• If your vehicle has a discharged battery
it can be jump-started using a set of
jumper cables and a battery in another
vehicle or by using a portable battery
booster pack.
• Jump-starting can be dangerous if
done improperly so please follow the
procedures in this section carefully.
NOTE: When using a portable battery
booster pack follow the manufacturer’s
operating instructions and precautions.
Preparations for Jump-Start
• The battery in your vehicle is located on the left side of the engine compartment.
• Set the parking brake, shift the automatic transmission into PARK and turn the
ignition to LOCK.
• Turn off the heater, radio, and all unnecessary electrical accessories.
• If using another vehicle to jump-start the battery, park the vehicle within the
jumper cables reach, set the parking brake and make sure the ignition is OFF.
Jump-Starting Procedure
• Connect the positive (+) end of the jumper cable to the positive (+) post of the
discharged vehicle.
• Connect the opposite end of the positive (+) jumper cable to the positive (+) post
of the booster battery.
• Connect the negative end (-) of the jumper cable to the negative (-) post of the
booster battery.
• Connect the opposite end of the negative (-) jumper cable to a good engine ground
(exposed metal part of the discharged vehicle's engine) away from the battery and
fuel injection system.
• Start the engine in the vehicle that has the booster battery, let the engine idle a
few minutes, and then start the engine in the vehicle with the discharged battery.
Once the engine is started, remove the jumper cables in the reverse sequence:
• Disconnect the negative (-) jumper cable from the negative (-) post of the vehicle
with the discharged battery.
• Disconnect the negative end (-) of the jumper cable from the negative (-) post of
the booster battery.
• Disconnect the opposite end of the positive (+) jumper cable from the positive (+)
post of the booster battery.
64
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• Disconnect the positive (+) end of the jumper cable from the positive (+) post of
the discharged vehicle.
• If frequent jump-starting is required to start your vehicle you should have the
battery and charging system inspected at your authorized dealer.
CAUTION!
• Do not use a portable battery booster pack or any other booster source with a
system voltage greater than 12 Volts or damage to the battery, starter motor,
alternator or electrical system may occur.
• Failure to follow these procedures could result in damage to the charging
system of the booster vehicle or the discharged vehicle.
• Accessories that can be plugged into the vehicle power outlets draw power
from the vehicle’s battery, even when not in use (i.e., cellular phones, etc.).
Eventually, if plugged in long enough, the vehicle’s battery will discharge
sufficiently to degrade battery life and/or prevent the engine from starting.
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 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.
• Do not connect the cable to the negative post (-) of the discharged battery.
The resulting electrical spark could cause the battery to explode and could
result in personal injury.
65
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
SHIFT LEVER OVERRIDE
• If a malfunction occurs and the shift
lever cannot be moved out of the PARK
position, you can use the following
procedure to temporarily move the shift
lever:
• To access the shift lever override,
remove the cover located to the top
right of the shift lever in the
instrument panel.
• Firmly set the parking brake.
• Turn the ignition switch to the ACC
or ON position without starting the
engine.
• Press and maintain firm pressure on
the brake pedal.
• The override can be activated by
pressing the white-colored tab,
which can be accessed through the
hole in the instrument panel.
• Move the shift lever into the NEUTRAL position.
• The vehicle may then be started in NEUTRAL.
• Reinstall the override cover.

WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
FREEING A STUCK VEHICLE
• If your vehicle becomes stuck in mud, sand or snow, it can often be moved by a
rocking motion. Turn your steering wheel right and left to clear the area around the
front wheels. Then, move the shift lever back and forth between REVERSE and 1st
gear. Using minimal accelerator pedal pressure to maintain the rocking motion,
without spinning the wheels, is most effective.
NOTE: If your vehicle is equipped with Electronic Stability Program (ESP) or Traction
, turn the system off before attempting to “rock” the vehicle.
Control
CAUTION!
• When “rocking” a stuck vehicle by moving between 1st and REVERSE, 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.
68
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
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.
69
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
OPENING THE HOOD
• Pull the hood release lever located on
the instrument panel, below the
steering column.
• Raise the hood and locate the safety
catch lever, in the middle of the hood
opening.
• Move the safety latch while lifting the
hood at the same time.
• Insert the support rod into the slot on
the hood.
• To close the hood, remove the support
rod and place it in the retaining clip,
then lower the hood slowly.
WARNING!
Be sure the hood is fully latched before driving your vehicle. If the hood is not
fully latched, it could open when the vehicle is in motion and block your vision.
Failure to follow this warning could result in serious injury or death.
ADDING FUEL
Fuel Filler Cap (Gas Cap)
• The gas cap is located behind the fuel
filler door on the left side of the
vehicle. If the gas cap is lost or
damaged, be sure the replacement cap
is for use with this vehicle.
• When the fuel nozzle “clicks” or shuts
off, the fuel tank is full.
• Tighten the gas cap until you hear a
“clicking” sound. This is an indication
that the gas cap is properly tightened.
If not properly tightened, the MIL
(Malfunction Indicator Light) may
come on.
NOTE: The driver’s side sliding door cannot be opened while the fuel door is open.
70
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
CAUTION!
• Damage to the fuel system or emissions control system could result from
using an improper gas cap. A poorly fitting cap could let impurities into the fuel
system and may cause the MIL to turn on, due to fuel vapors escaping from the
system.
• To avoid fuel spillage and overfilling, do not “top off” the fuel tank after
filling.
WARNING!
• Never have any smoking materials lit in or near the vehicle when the gas cap
is removed or the tank filled.
• Never add fuel when the engine is running. This is in violation of most state
and federal fire regulations and will cause the MIL to turn on.
• A fire may result if gasoline is pumped into a portable container that is inside
of a vehicle. You could be burned. Always place gas containers on the ground
while filling.

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!
• 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.
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.

NOTES
88
Driving and Alcohol: Drunken driving is one of the most frequent causes of collisions.
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 a collision. Your perceptions are less sharp, your
reflexes are slower, and your judgment is impaired when you have been drinking.
Never drink and then drive.
This guide has been prepared to help you get quickly acquainted with your
new Dodge and to provide a convenient reference source for common
questions. 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.
