FUSES – If your electrical components are not working properly, a fuse may have blown.
For more information, please see your Owner’s Guide.
FUEL PUMP SHUT-OFF SWITCH – This device stops the electric fuel pump from sending fuel to
the engine when your vehicle has had a substantial jolt. After an accident, if you find that the
engine cranks, but does not start, this switch may have been activated. The fuel pump shut-off
switch is located in the front passenger’s footwell, behind a flip-up cover, by the kick panel
access cover.
LOCATION OF SPARE TIRE – If you get a flat tire while driving, do not apply the brake heavily.
Instead, gradually decrease your speed. Hold the steering wheel firmly and slowly move to a safe
place on the side of the road. Your vehicle is equipped with a temporary spare tire located
under the vehicle, just forward of the rear bumper. The temporary spare tire is designed for
emergency use only and should be replaced as soon as possible. The jack and tools are located
under the carpeted floor panel in the rear cargo area. For complete details on how to change
your tire, refer to the Roadside Emergencies chapter in your Owner’s Guide.
TIRE PRESSURE – Your tire pressure is properly set at the dealership according to the recommended
specifications found on the Safety Compliance Certification Label or Tire Label located on the
B-Pillar or the edge of the driver’s door. Check your tire pressure at least once a month and before
long trips (including spare). As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure warning light
when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated. Improperly inflated tires can affect
vehicle handling and can fail suddenly, possibly resulting in loss of vehicle control. Refer to the
Tires, Wheels and Loading chapter in your Owner’s Guide for more details and safety information.
