FUEL PUMP
SHUT-OFF SWITCH
UNLEADED FUEL
RECOMMENDATIONS
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 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 footwell
area in the right upper corner.
For optimum performance,
use “Regular” unleaded fuel
with a pump (R+M)/2 octane
rating of at least 87. We do
not recommend the use of
gasolines labeled as
“Regular” with octane ratings
of 86 or lower that are sold in
high altitude areas.
All information contained in this Quick Reference Guide was accurate at the
time of duplication. We reserve the right to change features, operation
and/or functionality of any vehicle specification at any time. Your Ford dealer
is the best source for the most current information.
For detailed operating and safety information, please consult your

TIRE PRESSURE
ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE
UNDERSTANDING THE CVT (IF EQUIPPED)
Safe operation of your Five
Hundred requires that your
tires be properly inflated. The
Ford recommended inflation
pressure is found on the Tire
Label or the Certification
Label located near the front
door latch on the driver's
side. At least once a month
and before long trips, inspect
each tire and check the air
pressure with a tire gauge.
Don't forget the spare. Air
pressure should be checked
when the tires are cold.
Inflate all tires to the inflation
pressure recommended by
Ford Motor Company.
In addition to your New
Vehicle Limited Warranty,
Ford provides new vehicle
owners with a complimentary
roadside assistance program.
This service is available
24 hours a day, seven days
a week, for three years or
36,000 miles (60,000 km).
It covers changing a flat tire,
jump starts, limited fuel
delivery, lock-out assistance,
and towing of your vehicle.
Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)
HOOD RELEASE
REAR WINDOW BUFFETING
Unlike traditional automatic transmissions, the CVT offers more
responsive performance and increased fuel economy.
To open the hood, pull the
hood release handle under
the bottom of the instrument
panel near the steering
column. Go to the front of the
vehicle and release the
auxiliary latch located under
the front center of the hood.
Use the prop rod to support
the raised hood.
When one or both of your
rear windows are fully open,
you may experience a wind
throb or buffeting noise. This
is common among all vehicles
and can be eliminated simply
by lowering a front window
two to three inches.
The use of fluids other than the recommended fluid could
seriously damage internal transmission components. For more
information, please consult your Owner’s Guide.

POWER MIRRORS
To adjust your mirrors, rotate
the control clockwise to
adjust the right mirror and
counterclockwise to adjust
the left mirror. Move the
control in the direction you
wish to tilt the mirror. Then
rotate the control to the
center position to lock the
mirrors in place.
REMOTE ENTRY
SYSTEM
KEYLESS ENTRY
KEY PAD
Your vehicle is equipped with
a remote entry system, which
allows you to lock or unlock
the vehicle's doors and open
the trunk without a key. It also
allows you to activate the
panic alarm with the key in the
1 (LOCK) or 2 (ACC) position.
The remote entry system can
also control the memory seat,
power mirrors, and adjustable
pedals feature (if equipped).
For more information, please
consult your Owner's Guide.
The keyless entry key pad
can be used to lock or unlock
the doors without using a
key. It can also control the
memory seat, power mirrors,
and adjustable pedals
features (if equipped).
For more information, please
consult your Owner’s Guide.
MEMORY FEATURE
(IF EQUIPPED)
This feature will allow you to set two
positions for the driver’s seat,
power mirrors, and adjustable
pedals (if equipped). Set the
position by pressing the SET
button (indicator will illuminate) then
press the 1 or 2 button to set the
position to either Driver 1 or Driver
2. This memory setting can then be
recalled when you press the 1 or 2
button, enter Customer Code 1 or
2 on the keypad, or when you
press unlock on the remote entry
system (one of your remote
transmitters is associated with
Driver 1 and the other transmitter is
associated with Driver 2).
As traditional automatic transmissions shift up or down in
gears, the shifting in gear ratios is noticeable by increasing and
decreasing engine RPM, which causes a slight energy loss as
the gears change. These gear changes can be felt by the driver.

The CVT is a fully automatic transmission that electronically
monitors vehicle system inputs/outputs and driver demands to
select the desired drive ratio. Unlike traditional automatic
transmissions, the CVT continually adjusts the optimum
overall drive ratio between engine and drive wheels for all
operating conditions.
With the CVT, there is no energy transfer loss from shifting
because there is no gear shifting up or down. Acceleration up
to vehicle operating speed is smooth and continuous,
uninterrupted by gear shifting. The same holds true for coasting
down to idle: smooth and continuous.
