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. FCA US 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.
This guide has been prepared to help you get quickly acquainted with
your new FIAT vehicle and to provide a convenient reference source

INTRODUCTION/WELCOME
WELCOME FROM FIAT
Congratulations on selecting your new FIAT vehicle. Be assured that it represents precision workmanship, distinctive styling, and high quality - all essentials that are traditional to
our vehicles.
Your new FIAT 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. FCA US 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. 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.
We are 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.

INTRODUCTION/WELCOME
VEHICLES SOLD IN CANADA
With respect to any vehicles sold in Canada, the name FCA US LLC shall be deemed to
be deleted and the name FCA Canada Inc. used in substitution (excluding legal lines).
WARNING!
• 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 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/transmission
gear selector.
• Do not leave the Key Fob in or near the vehicle, or in a location accessible to children, and do not leave the ignition of a vehicle equipped with Keyless Enter-N-Go
in the ACC or ON/RUN mode. A child could operate power windows, other controls, or move 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. 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.
When it comes to service, remember that your authorized dealer knows your vehicle
best, has factory-trained technicians and genuine MOPAR® parts, and cares about your
satisfaction.

GETTING STARTED
• 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 transmission gear selector.
• Do not leave the Key Fob in or near the vehicle (or in a location accessible to children), and do not leave the ignition of a vehicle equipped with Keyless Enter-N-Go in
the ON/RUN mode. A child could operate power windows, other controls, or move
the vehicle.
REMOTE START
This system uses the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter to start the engine conveniently from outside the vehicle while still maintaining security. The system has a range of
at least 300 ft (91 m).
The Remote Starting System also activates the Climate Control and (if equipped) the
optional heated seats and optional heated steering wheel depending on temperatures
outside and inside the car.
• Push REMOTE START button 2 on the Key Fob twice within five seconds. Pushing
the REMOTE START button a third time shuts the engine off.

• To drive the vehicle, push UNLOCK button, insert the key (in case of Integrated Key)
in the ignition and turn to the MAR/RUN position.
• With Remote Start, the engine will only run for 15 minutes (timeout) unless the ignition key is placed in the MAR/RUN position.
• The vehicle must be started with the mechanical key or 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 serious injury or death when inhaled.
• Keep Key Fob transmitters away from children. Operation of the Remote Start
System, windows, door locks or other controls could cause serious injury or death.
Remote Start Windshield Wiper De–icer Activation — If Equipped
When Remote Start is active and the outside ambient temperature is less than 41° F
(5° C), the wiper De-Icer will be enabled. On exiting Remote Start, resume the previous
operation except if the De-Icer is active; the De-Icer timer and operation will continue.

GETTING STARTED
VEHICLE SECURITY ALARM
The Vehicle Security Alarm monitors the vehicle doors for unauthorized entry and the
Keyless Enter-N-Go START/STOP button for unauthorized operation. While the Vehicle
Security Alarm is armed, interior switches for door locks and decklid release are disabled.
If something triggers the alarm, the Vehicle Security Alarm will provide the following audible and visible signals: the horn will pulse, the park lamps and/or turn signals will flash,
and the Vehicle Security Light in the instrument cluster will flash.
To Arm:
Lock the door using either the power door lock switch (one door must be open) or the
LOCK button on the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter (doors can be open or
closed), and close all doors.
The Vehicle Security Light in the instrument cluster will flash for 16 seconds. This shows
that the Vehicle Security Alarm is arming. During this period, if a door is opened, the ignition is cycled to MAR/RUN, or the power door locks are unlocked in any manner, the
Vehicle Security Alarm will automatically disarm.
NOTE:
• The Vehicle Security Alarm will not arm if you lock the doors with the manual door
lock plungers.
• Once armed, the Vehicle Security Alarm disables the unlock switch on the driver door
trim panel and passenger door trim panel.
To Disarm The System:
Push the Key Fob UNLOCK button or cycle the ignition to the MAR/RUN position.
The Vehicle Security Alarm is designed to protect your vehicle. However, you can create
conditions where the Vehicle Security Alarm will give you a false alarm. If one of the previously described arming sequences has occurred, the Vehicle Security Alarm will arm regardless of whether you are in the vehicle or not. If you remain in the vehicle and open
a door, the alarm will sound. If this occurs, disarm the Vehicle Security Alarm.
If the Vehicle Security Alarm is armed and the battery becomes disconnected, the Vehicle
Security Alarm will remain armed when the battery is reconnected. The exterior lights
will flash, and the horn will sound. If this occurs, disarm the Vehicle Security Alarm.

GETTING STARTED
SEAT BELT SYSTEMS
Lap/Shoulder Belts
• All seating positions in your vehicle are equipped with lap/shoulder belts.
• Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly.
• Position the lap belt so that it is snug and lies low across your hips, below your abdomen. To remove slack in the lap belt portion, pull up 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 seat belt
reduces the risk of sliding under the seat belt in a collision.
• Position the shoulder belt across the shoulder and chest with minimal, if any slack so
that it is comfortable and not resting on your neck. The retractor will withdraw any
slack in the shoulder belt.
Seat Belt Pretensioner
• The front seat belt system is 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 properly buckled up. 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.
• 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 seat 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 seat belt could rip apart in a collision and leave you with no protection. Inspect the seat 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.

GETTING STARTED
SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) — AIR BAGS
Air Bag System Components
Your vehicle may be equipped with the following air bag system components:
• Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC)
• Air Bag Warning Light
• Steering Wheel and Column
• Instrument Panel
• Knee Impact Bolsters
• Advanced Front Air Bags
• Supplemental Side Air Bags
• Supplemental Knee Air Bags
• Front and Side Impact Sensors
• Seat Belt Pretenioners
• Seat Belt Buckle Switch

Advanced Front Air Bags
• This vehicle has Advanced Front Air Bags for both the driver and front passenger as a
supplement to the seat belt restraint systems. 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. Advanced Front Air Bags are not expected to reduce the risk of
injury in rear, side, or rollover collisions.
• The Advanced Front Air Bags will not deploy in all frontal collisions, including some that
may produce substantial vehicle damage — for example, some pole collisions, truck
underrides, and angle offset collisions.
• On the other hand, depending on the type and location of impact, Advanced Front Air
Bags may deploy in crashes with little vehicle front-end damage but that produce a
severe initial deceleration.
• Because air bag sensors measure vehicle deceleration over time, vehicle speed and
damage by themselves are not good indicators of whether or not an air bag should
have deployed.
• Seat belts are necessary for your protection in all collisions, and also are needed to
help keep you in position, away from an inflating air bag.
• After any collision, the vehicle should be taken to an authorized dealer immediately.
• 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.
17
GETTING STARTED
• If it is necessary to modify the air bag system for persons with disabilities, contact your
authorized dealer.
• Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details regarding the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS).
Supplemental Knee Air Bags
This vehicle is equipped with a Supplemental Driver Knee Air Bag mounted in the instrument panel below the steering column. The Supplemental Driver Knee Air Bag provides
enhanced protection during a frontal impact by working together with the seat belts, pretensioners, and Advanced Front Air Bags.
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.
• No objects should be placed over or near the air bag on the instrument panel or
steering wheel because any such objects could cause harm if the vehicle is in a
collision severe enough to cause the air bag to inflate.
Supplemental Side Air Bags
• This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Air Bags (SABs) located
in the outboard side of the front seats. The SABs are marked with a SRS AIRBAG or
AIRBAG label sewn into the outboard side of the seats.
• This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtains (SABICs)
located above the side windows. The trim covering the SABICs is labeled SRS AIRBAG
or AIRBAG. The SABICs may help reduce the risk of partial or complete ejection of
vehicle occupants through side windows in certain side impact events.
• The SABICs and SABs (“Side Air Bags”) are designed to activate in certain side impacts
and certain rollover events. The Occupant Restraint Controller (“ORC”) determines
whether the deployment of the Side Air Bags in a particular side impact or rollover
event is appropriate, based on the severity and type of collision. Vehicle damage by
itself is not a good indicator of whether or not Side Air Bags should have deployed.
18
GETTING STARTED
WARNING!
• 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 Side Air Bags during deployment could cause you to be
severely injured or killed.
• Relying on the Side Air Bags alone could lead to more severe injuries in a collision.
The Side Air Bags work with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In some collisions, Side Air Bags won’t deploy at all. Always wear your seat belt even though
you have Side Air Bags.
• This vehicle is equipped with left and right Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable
Curtains (SABICs). Do not stack luggage or other cargo up high enough to block
the deployment of the SABICs. The trim covering above the side windows where
the SABIC and its deployment path are located should remain free from any obstructions.
• This vehicle is equipped with SABICs. In order for the SABICs to work as intended, do not install any accessory items in your vehicle which could alter the
roof. Do not add an aftermarket sunroof to your vehicle. Do not add roof racks
that require permanent attachments (bolts or screws) for installation on the vehicle roof. Do not drill into the roof of the vehicle for any reason.
• Do not use accessory seat covers or place objects between you and the Side Air
Bags; the performance could be adversely affected and/or objects could be pushed
into you, causing serious injury.
ENHANCED ACCIDENT RESPONSE SYSTEM
In the event of an impact, if the communication network remains intact, and the power
remains intact, depending on the nature of the event, the ORC will determine whether
to have the Enhanced Accident Response System perform the following functions:
• Cut off fuel to the engine.
• Flash hazard lights as long as the battery has power or until the hazard light button is
pressed. The hazard lights can be deactivated by pressing the hazard light button.
• Turn on the interior lights, which remain on as long as the battery has power or for
15 minutes from the intervention of the Enhanced Accident Response System.
• Unlock the power door locks.
• Turn off the Fuel Pump Heater.
• Turn off the HVAC Blower Motor.
• Close the HVAC Circulation Door.
19
GETTING STARTED
ENHANCED ACCIDENT RESPONSE SYSTEM RESET PROCEDURE
After the event occurs, when the system is active, a message regarding fuel cutoff is displayed. Turn the ignition switch from ignition AVV/START or MAR/ACC/ON/RUN to ignition STOP/OFF/LOCK. Carefully check the vehicle for fuel leaks in the engine compartment and on the ground near the engine compartment and fuel tank before resetting
the system and starting the engine.
Depending on the nature of the event the left and right turn signal lights, located in the
instrument panel, may both be blinking and will continue to blink. In order to move your

GETTING STARTED
Air Bag Warning Light
• The air bags must be ready to inflate for your protection in a collision. The Occupant
Restraint Controller (ORC) monitors the internal circuits and interconnecting wiring
associated with air bag system electrical components.
• The ORC monitors the readiness of the electronic parts of the air bag system whenever the ignition switch is in the AVV/START or MAR/ACC/ON/RUN position. If the
ignition switch is in the STOP/OFF/LOCK position the air bag system is not on and the
air bags will not inflate.
• The ORC turns on the Air Bag Warning Light in the instrument panel for approximately four to eight seconds for a self-check when the ignition switch is first turned to
the MAR/ACC/ON/RUN position. After the self-check, the Air Bag Warning Light will
turn off. If the ORC detects a malfunction in any part of the system, it turns on the
Air Bag Warning Light, either momentarily or continuously. A single chime will sound to
alert you if the light comes on again after initial startup.
• If the Air Bag Warning Light in the instrument panel is not on during the four to eight
seconds when the ignition switch is first turned to the MAR/ACC/ON/RUN position,
stays on, or turns on while driving, have the vehicle serviced by an authorized service
center immediately.
NOTE:
If the speedometer, tachometer, or any engine related gauges are not working, the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) may also be disabled. In this condition the air bags may
not be ready to inflate for your protection. Have an authorized dealer service the air bag
system immediately.
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.
21
GETTING STARTED
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.
CHILD RESTRAINTS
Children 12 years or younger 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.
NOTE:
• For additional information, refer to www.Seatcheck.org or call 1-866-SEATCHECK
(1-866-732-8243).
• Canadian residents should refer to Transport Canada’s website for additional information: http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/motorvehiclesafety/safedrivers-childsafety-index-53.htm
LATCH – Lower Anchors And Tethers For CHildren
• Your vehicle is equipped with the child restraint anchorage system called LATCH, which
stands for Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren.
• The rear outboard seating positions have lower anchors and top tether anchors. The
rear center seating position has a top tether anchor only.
LATCH System Weight Limit
You may use the LATCH anchorage system until the combined weight of the child and
the child restraint is 65 lbs (29.5 kg). Use the seat belt and tether anchor instead of the
LATCH system once the combined weight is more than 65 lbs (29.5 kg).
22
GETTING STARTED
Locating LATCH Anchorages
The lower anchorages are round bars
that are found at the rear of the seat cushion where it meets the seatback, below the
anchorage symbols on the seatback. They
are just visible when you lean into the rear
seat to install the child restraint. You will
easily feel them if you run your finger along
the gap between the seatback and seat
cushion.
Lower Anchors
Locating Tether Anchorages
In addition, there are tether strap anchorages behind each rear seating position located on the back of the seat.
Tether Anchors
Center Seat LATCH
Do not install a child restraint in the center position using the LATCH system. Use the
seat belt and tether anchor to install a child seat in the center seating position.
Installing The Child Restraint Using The LATCH Lower Anchors
NOTE:
Never “share” a LATCH anchorage with two or more child restraints.
1. Loosen the adjusters on the lower straps and on the tether strap of the child seat so
that you can more easily attach the hooks or connectors to the vehicle anchorages.
2. Attach the lower hooks or connectors of the child restraint to the lower anchorages
in the selected seating position.
23
GETTING STARTED
3. If the child restraint has a tether strap, connect it to the top tether anchorage. See
below for directions to attach a tether anchor.
4. Tighten all of the straps as you push the child restraint rearward and downward into
the seat. Remove slack in the straps according to the child restraint manufacturer’s
instructions.
5. Test that the child restraint is installed tightly by pulling back and forth on the child seat
at the belt path. It should not move more than 1 inch (25.4 mm) in any direction.
Installing The Child Restraint Using The Vehicle Seat Belts
The seat belts in the passenger seating positions are equipped with a Switchable Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) that is designed to keep the lap portion of the seat belt
tight around the child restraint. Any seat belt system will loosen with time, so check the
belt occasionally, and pull it tight if necessary.
Tether Weight Limit
Always use the tether anchor when using the seat belt to install a forward facing child
restraint, up to the recommended weight limit of the child restraint.
To Install A Child Seat Using An ALR:
1. Pull enough of the seat belt webbing from the retractor to pass it through the belt
path of the child restraint. Do not twist the belt webbing in the belt path.
2. Slide the latch plate into the buckle until you hear a “click.”
3. Pull on the webbing to make the lap portion tight against the child seat.
4. To lock the seat belt, pull down on the shoulder part of the belt until you have pulled
all the seat belt webbing out of the retractor. Then, allow the webbing to retract back
into the retractor. As the webbing retracts, you will hear a clicking sound. This means
the seat belt is now in the Automatic Locking mode.
5. Try to pull the webbing out of the retractor. If it is locked, you should not be able to
pull out any webbing. If the retractor is not locked, repeat the last step.
6. Finally, pull up on any extra webbing to tighten the lap portion around the child restraint while you push the child restraint rearward and downward into the vehicle
seat.
7. If the child restraint has a top tether strap and the seating position has a top tether
anchorage, connect the tether strap to the anchorage and tighten the tether strap.
See below for directions to attach a tether anchor.
8. Test that the child restraint is installed tightly by pulling back and forth on the child seat
at the belt path. It should not move more than 1 inch (25.4 mm) in any direction.
24
GETTING STARTED
Installing The Top Tether Strap (With Either Lower Anchors Or Vehicle
Seat Belt):
When installing a forward-facing child restraint, always secure the top tether strap, up to
the tether anchor weight limit, whether the child restraint is installed with the lower anchors or the vehicle seat belt.
Tether Anchorage Installation
1. Route the tether strap to provide the
most direct path for the strap between
the anchor and the child seat.
2. If your vehicle is equipped with adjustable rear head restraints, raise the head
restraint, and where possible, route the
tether strap under the head restraint
and between the two posts. If not possible, lower the head restraint and pass
the tether strap around the outboard
side of the head restraint.
Tether Anchorage Locations
3. Attach the tether strap hook of the
child restraint to the top tether anchorage and remove slack in the tether strap according to the child restraint manufacturer’s instructions.
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.
• 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.
• Only use a rearward-facing child restraint in a vehicle with a rear seat.
• 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.
• If your vehicle is equipped with a split rear seat, make sure the tether strap does
not slip into the opening between the seatbacks as you remove slack in the strap.
25
GETTING STARTED
HEAD RESTRAINTS
Head restraints are designed to reduce the risk of injury by restricting head movement in
the event of a rear impact. Head restraints should be adjusted so that the top of the
head restraint is located above the top of your ear.
WARNING!
The head restraints for all occupants must be properly adjusted prior to operating the
vehicle or occupying a seat. Head restraints should never be adjusted while the vehicle
is in motion. Driving a vehicle with the head restraints improperly adjusted or removed
could cause serious injury or death in the event of a collision.

34
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. Refer to “Maintaining Your Vehicle” for the recommended viscosity and quality grades.
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 an engine problem or malfunction.
CAUTION!
Never use Non-Detergent Oil or Straight Mineral Oil in the engine or damage may
result.

and depress the throttle pedal. For safety
reasons, your seat belt must also be fastened.
Park Brake Switch
NOTE:
• You may hear a slight whirring sound from the back of the vehicle while the parking
brake engages or disengages.
• If your foot is on the brake pedal while you are engaging or disengaging the parking
brake, you may notice a small amount of brake pedal movement.
• The new Auto Park Brake feature can be used to apply the park brake automatically
every time you park the vehicle. Auto Park Brake can be enabled and disabled in the
Settings menu in Uconnect or in “Safe Hold” conditions.
• The parking brake can be engaged even when the ignition switch is OFF, however, it
can only be disengaged when the ignition switch is in the ON/RUN position.
• Safehold is a new feature that will automatically apply the park brake under certain
conditions. The EPB monitors the status of the driver’s seat belt, driver’s door and
pedal positions to determine if the driver may have exited while the vehicle is still capable of moving and will then automatically apply the park brake to prevent the vehicle
from rolling.
• The EPB fault lamp will illuminate if the EPB switch is held for longer than 20 seconds
in either the released or applied position. The light will extinguish upon releasing the
switch.
• Refer to the Starting and Operating section of your vehicle’s Owner’s Manual on the
DVD for further details.
48
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
CAUTION!
If the Brake System Warning Light remains on with the parking brake released, a brake
system malfunction is indicated. Have the brake system serviced by an authorized
dealer immediately.
WARNING!
• 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.
• When leaving the vehicle, always make sure the keyless ignition node is in the
STOP/OFF mode, remove the Key Fob from the vehicle and lock the 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, and do not leave a vehicle equipped with Keyless Enter-N-Go™in the MAR/
RUN mode. A child could operate power windows, other controls, or move the
vehicle.
• Be sure the parking brake is fully disengaged before driving; failure to do so can
lead to brake failure and a collision.
• Always fully apply the parking brake when leaving your vehicle, or it may roll and
cause damage or injury. Also be certain to leave the transmission in PARK. Failure
to do so may allow the vehicle to roll and cause damage or injury.

DYNAMIC SELECTOR — IF EQUIPPED
The Dynamic Selector combines the capabilities of the vehicle control systems, along with
driver input, to provide the best performance in all driving conditions.
The Dynamic Selector consists of the following positions:
Auto Mode – This mode is designed for
comfort and safety in normal driving conditions. In versions equipped with all-wheel
drive this mode also reduces fuel consumption, as automatically alters the distribution
of torque between the front and rear axle.
All Weather Mode – This mode offers increased traction control and stability control for low traction conditions such as
driving on a dirt road or off road.
Sport Mode – This mode is designed to inDynamic Selector Switch
crease steering feedback to the driver with a
slight increase in effort and changes the
transmission shift schedules for more aggressive shifting. This driving mode is useful while
driving on twisty roads where more steering precision is desired in spirited cornering.
Warning Messages
In the event of a system fault, the system automatically defaults to "Auto" mode and a
message will appear in the EVIC display. Refer to “Electronic Vehicle Information Center
(EVIC)” in “Getting To Know Your Instrument Cluster” for further information.
BLIND SPOT MONITORING (BSM) — IF EQUIPPED
The Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) system uses two radar-based sensors, located inside the
rear bumper fascia, to detect highway licensable vehicles (automobiles, trucks, motorcycles,
etc.) that enter the blind spot zones from the rear/front/side of the vehicle.
When the vehicle is started, the BSM warning light will momentarily illuminate in both
outside rear view mirrors to let the driver know that the system is operational. The BSM
system sensors operate when the vehicle is in any forward gear or REVERSE and enters
stand-by mode when the vehicle is in PARK.
50
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
The BSM detection zone covers approximately one lane width on both sides of the vehicle, 10 ft (3 m). The zone length starts at the outside mirror and extends approximately
20 ft (6 m) beyond the rear bumper of the vehicle. The BSM system monitors the detection zones on both sides of the vehicle when the vehicle speed reaches approximately
6 mph (10 km/h) or higher and will alert the driver of vehicles in these areas.
NOTE:
• The BSM system does NOT alert the driver about rapidly approaching vehicles that
are outside the detection zones.
• If a trailer is connected to the vehicle, it is necessary to deactivate BSM system manually by settings menu to avoid a miss-detection. Refer to “Uconnect Settings” in “Multimedia” in your Owner’s Manual on the DVD for further information.
The area on the rear fascia where the radar sensors are located must remain free of
snow, ice, and dirt/road contamination so that the BSM system can function properly. Do
not block the radar sensors located on the rear fascia with foreign objects (bumper stickers, bicycle racks, etc.).
The BSM system notifies the driver of objects in the detection zones by illuminating the
BSM warning light located in the outside mirrors in addition to sounding an audible
(chime) alert and reducing the radio volume.
The BSM system monitors the detection zone from three different entry points (side,
rear, front) while driving to see if an alert is necessary. The BSM system will issue an alert
during these types of zone entries.
Entering From The Side
Vehicles that move into your adjacent lanes from either side of the vehicle.
Entering From The Rear
Vehicles that come up from behind your vehicle on either side and enter the rear detection zone with a relative speed of less than 31 mph (50 km/h).
Overtaking Traffic
If you pass another vehicle slowly with a relative speed less than 15 mph (25 km/h) and
the vehicle remains in the blind spot for approximately 1.5 seconds, the warning light will
be illuminated. If the difference in speed between the two vehicles is greater than
15 mph (25 km/h), the warning light will not illuminate.
The BSM system is designed not to issue an alert on stationary objects such as guardrails,
posts, walls, foliage, berms, etc. However, occasionally the system may alert on such objects. This is normal operation and your vehicle does not require service.
The BSM system will not alert you of objects that are traveling in the opposite direction
of the vehicle in adjacent lanes.
51
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
WARNING!
The Blind Spot Monitoring system is only an aid to help detect objects in the blind spot
zones. The BSM system is not designed to detect pedestrians, bicyclists, or animals. Even
if your vehicle is equipped with the BSM system, always check your vehicles mirrors,
glance over your shoulder, and use your turn signal before changing lanes. Failure to do
so can result in serious injury or death.
Rear Cross Path (RCP)
The Rear Cross Path (RCP) feature is intended to aid the driver when backing out of
parking spaces where their vision of oncoming vehicles may be blocked. Proceed slowly
and cautiously out of the parking space until the rear end of the vehicle is exposed. The
RCP system will then have a clear view of the cross traffic and if an oncoming vehicle is
detected, alert the driver.
RCP monitors the rear detection zones on both sides of the vehicle, for objects that are
moving toward the side of the vehicle with a minimum speed of approximately 1 mph
(2 km/h), to objects moving a maximum of approximately 22 mph (35 km/h), such as in
parking lot situations.
NOTE:
In a parking lot situation, oncoming vehicles can be obscured by vehicles parked on either
side. If the sensors are blocked by other structures or vehicles, the system will not be
able to alert the driver.
When RCP is on and the vehicle is in REVERSE, the driver is alerted using both the visual and audible alarms, including reducing the radio volume.
WARNING!
RCP is not a Back Up Aid system. It is intended to be used to help a driver detect an
oncoming vehicle in a parking lot situation. Drivers must be careful when backing up,
even when using RCP. Always check carefully behind your vehicle, look behind you, and
be sure to check for pedestrians, animals, other vehicles, obstructions, and blind spots
before backing up. Failure to do so can result in serious injury or death.
52
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
Mode Of Operation
Three selectable modes of operation are available in the Uconnect System. Refer to
“Uconnect Settings” in “Multimedia” in your Owner’s Manual on the DVD for further
information.
Blind Spot Alert Lights Only
When operating in Blind Spot Alert mode, the BSM system will provide a visual alert in
the appropriate side view mirror based on a detected object. However, when the system
is operating in Rear Cross Path (RCP) mode, the system will respond with both visual
and audible alerts when a detected object is present. Whenever an audible alert is requested, the radio is muted.
Blind Spot Alert Lights/Chime
When operating in Blind Spot Alert Lights/Chime mode, the BSM system will provide a
visual alert in the appropriate side view mirror based on a detected object. If the turn
signal is then activated, and it corresponds to an alert present on that side of the vehicle,
an audible chime will also be sounded. Whenever a turn signal and detected object are
present on the same side at the same time, both the visual and audible alerts will be issued. In addition to the audible alert, the radio (if on) will also be muted.
NOTE:
Whenever an audible alert is requested by the BSM system, the radio is also muted.
When the system is in RCP, the system will respond with both visual and audible alerts
when a detected object is present. Whenever an audible alert is requested, the radio is
also muted. Turn/hazard signal status is ignored; the RCP state always requests the chime.
Blind Spot Alert Off
When the BSM system is turned off, there will be no visual or audible alerts from either
the BSM or RCP systems.
NOTE:
The BSM system will store the current operating mode when the vehicle is shut off. Each
time the vehicle is started the previously stored mode will be recalled and used.
Blind Spot Monitoring Fault Warnings
Sensor Blinded
In the case of a sensor blinded:
• BSM Mirror Warning Lights are turned on continuously.
• A instrument cluster message will display “Blind Spot Monitoring Unavailable - Wipe
Rear Bumper Corners.”
NOTE:
The rear bumper must be clean and free of any obstructing debris.
53
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
System Not Available
In the case of the system being temporary unavailable:
• BSM Mirror Warning Lights are turned on continuously.
• A instrument cluster message will display “Blind Spot Monitoring Temporary
Unavailable.”
In the case of the system being completely unavailable:
• A chime will turn on.
• A instrument cluster message will display “Blind Spot Monitoring Unavailable - Service
Required.”
NOTE:
Vehicle must be taken to the nearest authorized dealer for service.
BRAKE CONTROL — IF EQUIPPED
Brake Control
The Brake Control system with mitigation provides the driver with audible warnings, visual warnings (within the EVIC), and may apply a brake jerk to warn the driver when it
detects a potential frontal collision. The warnings and limited braking are intended to provide the driver with enough time to react, avoid or mitigate the potential collision.
NOTE:
• Brake Control monitors the information from the forward looking sensors as well as
the Electronic Brake Controller (EBC), to calculate the probability of a forward collision. When the system determines that a forward collision is probable, the driver will
be provided with audible and visual warnings and may provide a brake jerk warning.
• If the driver does not take action based upon these progressive warnings, then the
system will provide a limited level of active braking to help slow the vehicle and mitigate the potential forward collision. If the driver reacts to the warnings by braking and
the system determines that the driver intends to avoid the collision by braking but has
not applied sufficient brake force, the system will compensate and provide additional
brake force as required.
Vehicles With A Manual Transmission: After the end of the intervention of automatic
braking, the engine could stall, unless the driver can depress the clutch pedal.
54
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
Vehicles With Automatic Transmission: After the end of the intervention of automatic
braking, the transmission may remain in last gear stored: therefore the car could lurch
forward, once the brakes release a few seconds later. If the Brake Control event stops
the vehicle completely, the system will hold the vehicle at standstill for two seconds and
then release the brakes.
If a Brake Control event begins at a speed below 20 mph (32 km/h), the system may
provide the maximum braking possible to mitigate the potential forward collision. If the
Brake Control event stops the vehicle completely, the system will hold the vehicle at
standstill for two seconds and then release the brakes.
When the system determines a collision
with the vehicle in front of you is no longer probable, the warning message will be
deactivated.
NOTE:
• The minimum speed for Brake Control
activation is 4 mph (7 km/h).
• The maximum speed for Brake Control
activation is 124 mph (200 km/h).
Brake Control Message
• The Brake Control alerts may be triggered on objects other than vehicles such as
guard rails or sign posts based on the course prediction. This is expected and is a part
of normal Brake Control activation and functionality.
• The Brake Control system is intended for on-road use only. If the vehicle is taken offroad, the Brake Control system should be deactivated to prevent unnecessary warnings
to the surroundings.
• The system is active only if the front seat belts are fastened.
WARNING!
Brake Control is not intended to avoid a collision on its own, nor can Brake Control
detect every type of potential collision. The driver has the responsibility to avoid a collision by controlling the vehicle via braking and steering. Failure to follow this warning
could lead to serious injury or death.
55
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
Turning Brake Control ON Or OFF
The Brake Control menu setting is located in the Uconnect settings.
NOTE:
The default status of Brake Control is “Warning + Active Braking,” this allows the system
to warn you of a possible collision with the vehicle in front of you and enable the active
braking.
• Changing the Brake Control status to “Off” deactivates the system, so no warning or
active braking will be available in case of a possible collision
• Changing the Brake Control status to “Only warning” prevents the system from providing limited active braking, or additional brake support if the driver is not braking
adequately in the event of a potential frontal collision, but maintains the audible and
visual warnings.
Changing the status of the system is only possible with the vehicle at a complete stop.
NOTE:
The Brake Control system state is not kept in memory from one key cycle to the next. If
the system is turned OFF, it will turn On when the vehicle is restarted.
Changing Brake Control Sensitivity
By changing the settings on the menu of the Uconnect system, you can change the sensitivity of the system by choosing one of the following three options: "Near", "Medium" or
"Far". Refer to “Multimedia” in the Owner’s Manual on the DVD for further information.
The default option is "Medium". This setting provides that the system notify the driver of
a possible accident with the vehicle ahead of it when the latter is at a standard distance,
intermediate between the other two possible settings.
By setting the sensitivity of the system to "Far", the system will warn the driver of a possible accident with the vehicle in front when the latter is at a greater distance, giving you
the chance to act on the brakes in a more limited and gradual. This setting gives the
driver the maximum possible time of reaction to prevent a possible accident.
By changing the option to "Near", the system will warn the driver of a possible accident
with the vehicle ahead of it when the latter is a reduced distance. This setting offers a

OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
Brake Control Limited Warning
If the EVIC displays “Brake Control Limited Functionality” or “Brake Control Limited
Functionality Clean Front Windshield” momentarily, there may be a condition that limits
Brake Control functionality. Although the vehicle is still drivable under normal conditions,
the active braking may not be fully available. Once the condition that limited the system
performance is no longer present, the system will return to its full performance state.
If the problem persists, see your authorized dealer.
Service Brake Control Warning
If the system turns off, and the EVIC displays:
• Brake Control Unavailable Service Required
This indicates there is an internal system fault. Although the vehicle is still drivable under
normal conditions, have the system checked by an authorized dealer.
“Wipe Front Radar Sensor In Front Of Vehicle” Warning
The “Brake Control Front Radar Sensor Temporarily Blocked” warning will display when
conditions temporarily limit system performance. This most often occurs at times of poor
visibility, such as in snow or heavy rain. The system may also become temporarily blinded
due to obstructions, such as mud, dirt or ice. In these cases, the EVIC will display “Brake
Control Front Radar Sensor Temporarily Blocked” and the system will deactivate.
The “Brake Control Front Radar Sensor Temporarily Blocked” message can sometimes be
displayed while driving in highly reflective areas (i.e. tunnels with reflective tiles, or ice and
snow). The system will recover after the vehicle has left these areas. Under rare conditions, when the radar is not tracking any vehicles or objects in its path this warning may
temporarily occur.
If weather conditions are not a factor, the driver should examine the sensor. It may require cleaning or removal of an obstruction. The sensor is located behind the lower
grille. In absence of visible obstructions on the bumper, it could be necessary to wipe off
the radar directly on the surface, after having the radar cover removed. It’s recommended that your authorized dealer perform’s this operation.
NOTE:
• If the “Brake Control Front Radar Sensor Temporarily Blocked” message occurs frequently (e.g. more than once on every trip) without any snow, rain, mud, or other obstruction, have the radar sensor realigned at your authorized dealer.
• Installing a snow plow, front-end protector, an aftermarket grille or modifying the grille
is not recommended. Doing so may block the sensor and inhibit Brake Control
operation.
57
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
Precautions While Driving With Brake Control
In certain driving conditions, such as:
• Driving in the vicinity of a curve
• Small vehicles and/or not aligned to the lane
• Lane changing of other vehicles
• Passing of vehicles in an oncoming intersection
The intervention of the system could be unexpected or delayed. The driver must therefore always pay particular attention, while maintaining control of the car to drive in complete safety.
Driving In The Vicinity Of A Curve
Entering or exiting a large curve, the system could detect the presence of a vehicle that
is in front of the car, but that does not preside in the same lane. In cases such as this, the
system might respond.
Small Vehicles And/Or Not Aligned To The Lane
The system is not able to detect the presence of vehicles that are in front of the car but
placed outside the field of action of the radar sensor and could therefore not react in
the presence of small vehicles such as bicycles or motorcycles.
Lane Changing Of Other Vehicles
Vehicles that suddenly change lane, while standing in the traffic lane of their car and inside the field of action of the radar sensor may cause the intervention of the system.
Passing Of Vehicles In An Oncoming Intersection
The system could temporarily react to a vehicle that crossed the range of the radar sensor, in an oncoming intersection.
58
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
LANESENSE — IF EQUIPPED
LaneSense Operation
The LaneSense system is operational at speeds above 37 mph (60 km/h) and below
112 mph (180 km/h). The LaneSense system uses a forward looking camera to detect
lane markings and measure vehicle position within the lane boundaries.
When both lane markings are detected and the driver unintentionally drifts out of the
lane (no turn signal applied), the LaneSense system provides a haptic warning in the form
of torque applied to the steering wheel to prompt the driver to remain within the lane
boundaries. If the driver continues to unintentionally drift out of the lane, the LaneSense
system provides a visual warning through the Electronic Vehicle Information Center
(EVIC) to prompt the driver to remain within the lane boundaries.
The driver may manually override the haptic warning by applying torque into the steering
wheel at any time.
When only a single lane marking is detected and the driver unintentionally drifts across
the lane marking (no turn signal applied), the LaneSense system provides a visual warning
through the EVIC to prompt the driver to remain within the lane. When only a single
lane marking is detected, a haptic (torque) warning will not be provided.
NOTE:
When operating conditions have been met, the LaneSense system will monitor if the
driver’s hands are on the steering wheel and provides an audible warning to the driver
when the driver’s hands are not detected on the steering wheel. The system will cancel if
the driver does not return their hands to the wheel.
59
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
Turning LaneSense ON Or OFF
The default status of LaneSense is “OFF”.
The LaneSense button is located on the end of the turn signal stalk located on the steering column.
To turn the LaneSense system ON, push the Lane Assist button (LED
turns OFF). A “Lane Sense On” message is shown in the EVIC.
To turn the LaneSense system OFF, push the Lane Assist button once
(LED turns ON).
NOTE:
The LaneSense system will retain the last system state ON or OFF from the last ignition
cycle when the ignition is changed to the ON/RUN position.
LaneSense Warning Message
The LaneSense system will indicate the current lane drift condition through the Electronic
Vehicle Information Center (EVIC).
3.5 EVIC Screen
When the LaneSense system is ON, the lane lines are gray when both of the lane
boundaries have not been detected and the LaneSense indicator is solid white.
Left Lane Departure — Only Left Lane Detected
• When the LaneSense system is ON, the Lane Assist indicator is solid white when only
the left lane marking has been detected and the system is ready to provide visual
warnings in the EVIC if an unintentional lane departure occurs.
• When the LaneSense system senses the lane has been approached and is in a lane departure situation, the left thick lane line flashes yellow (on/off), the left thin line remains solid
yellow and the LaneSense indicator changes from solid white to flashing yellow.
NOTE:
The LaneSense system operates with the similar behavior for a right lane departure
when only the right lane marking has been detected.
60
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
Left Lane Departure — Both Lanes Detected
• When the LaneSense system is ON, the lane lines turn from gray to white to indicate
that both of the lane markings have been detected. The LaneSense indicator is solid
green when both lane markings have been detected and the system is “armed” to provide visual warnings in the EVIC and a torque warning in the steering wheel if an unintentional lane departure occurs.
• When the LaneSense system senses a lane drift situation, the left thick lane line and
left thin line turn solid yellow. The LaneSense indicator changes from solid green to
solid yellow. At this time torque is applied to the steering wheel in the opposite direction of the lane boundary.
For example: If approaching the left side of the lane the steering wheel will turn to the
right.
• When the LaneSense system senses the lane has been approached and is in a lane
departure situation, the left thick lane line flashes yellow (on/off) and the left thin line
remains solid yellow. The LaneSense indicator changes from solid yellow to flashing yellow. At this time torque is applied to the steering wheel in the opposite direction of
the lane boundary.
For example: If approaching the left side of the lane the steering wheel will turn to the
right.
NOTE:
The LaneSense system operates with the similar behavior for a right lane departure.
Changing LaneSense Status
The LaneSense system has settings to adjust the intensity of the torque warning and the
warning zone sensitivity (early/late) that you can configure through the Uconnect system
screen.
NOTE:
• When enabled the system operates above 37 mph (60 km/h) and below 112 mph
(180 km/h).
• Use of the turn signal suppresses the warnings.
• The system will not apply torque to the steering wheel whenever a safety system engages. (anti-lock brakes, traction control system, electronic stability control, forward collision warning, etc.).

OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
PARKSENSE REAR PARK ASSIST — IF EQUIPPED
The ParkSense Rear Park Assist system provides visual and audible indications of the distance between the rear fascia and a detected obstacle when backing up, e.g. during a
parking maneuver.
ParkSense will retain the last system state (enabled or disabled) from the last ignition
cycle when the ignition is changed to the MAR/RUN position.
ParkSense can be active only when the shift lever/gear selector is in REVERSE.
ParkSense Sensors
The four ParkSense sensors, located in the rear fascia/bumper, monitor the area behind
the vehicle that is within the sensors’ field of view. The sensors can detect obstacles from
approximately 12 in (30 cm) up to 59 in (150 cm) from the rear fascia/bumper in the
horizontal direction, depending on the location, type and orientation of the obstacle.
Chime
By shifting the vehicle in REVERSE and in the case of the presence of a rear obstacle, an
acoustic signal that varies with the distance of the obstacle from the bumper is activated.
The frequency of the acoustic signal:
• Increases with the distance between car and object decreases.
• Becomes continuous when the distance that separates the car from the obstacle is less
than approximately 12 inches (30 cm), while terminates immediately if the distance to
the obstacle increases.
• Remains constant if the distance between car and obstacle remains unchanged. If this
situation occurs for the side sensors, the signal is stopped after approximately three
seconds to avoid, for example, it activates in case of maneuver along a wall.
When the system emits a beeping sound, the volume of the Uconnect system, if turned
on, is automatically lowered by ParkSense.
Detection Distances
If the sensors detect more obstacles, it is taken into account only what is the shorter distance.
62
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
Instrument Cluster Display
ParkSense is displayed on the instrument cluster only if you have selected the item
"sound and display" inside the "Settings" menu of the Uconnect system.
If an obstacle is detected in the center rear region, the display will show a single solid arc
in the center rear region and will produce a one-half second tone. As the vehicle moves
closer to the obstacle, the display will show the single arc moving closer to the vehicle
and the sound tone will change from slow, to fast, to continuous.
If an obstacle is detected in the left and/or right rear region, the display will show a single
flashing arc in the left and/or right rear region and will produce a fast sound tone. As the
vehicle moves closer to the obstacle, the display will show the single arc moving closer to
the vehicle and the tone will change from fast to continuous.
In general, the car is closest to the obstacle when the display shows only a flashing arc
and the chime becomes continuous.
The color on the display depends on the distance and location of the obstacle.
Enabling And Disabling ParkSense
ParkSense can be enabled and disabled with the ParkSense switch.
When the ParkSense switch is pushed to disable the system, the instrument cluster will
display the “PARKSENSE OFF” message for approximately five seconds. Refer to “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)” in “Getting To Know Your Instrument Panel” in
your owner’s manual on the DVD for further information. When the shift lever is moved
to REVERSE and the system is disabled, the EVIC will display the “PARKSENSE OFF”
message for as long as the vehicle is in REVERSE.
The ParkSense switch LED will be ON when ParkSense is disabled or requires service.
The ParkSense switch LED will be OFF when the system is enabled. If the ParkSense
switch is pushed, and requires service, the ParkSense switch LED will blink momentarily,
and then the LED will be ON.
ParkSense will remember the previous state when the vehicle is switch off.
CAUTION!
After turning off the ignition, the ParkSense remains in this setting until the next key
cycle, even in the case of changing the setting of starting MAR/RUN to STOP/OFF and
then again in MAR/RUN.
63
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
Service The Rear Park Assist System
During vehicle start up, when the ParkSense Rear Park Assist System has detected a
faulted condition, the instrument cluster will actuate a single chime, once per ignition
cycle, and it will display the “PARK ASSIST UNAVAILABLE WIPE REAR SENSORS” or the
“PARK ASSIST UNAVAILABLE SERVICE REQUIRED” message. Refer to “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)” in “Getting To Know Your Instrument Cluster” in your
owner’s manual on the DVD for further information. When the shift lever is moved to
REVERSE and the system has detected a faulted condition, the EVIC will display the
"PARK ASSIST UNAVAILABLE WIPE REAR SENSORS" or "PARK ASSIST UNAVAILABLE
SERVICE REQUIRED" message for as long as the vehicle is in REVERSE. Under this condition, Rear Park Assist will not operate.
If “PARK ASSIST UNAVAILABLE WIPE REAR SENSORS” appears in the Electronic Vehicle
Information Center (EVIC) make sure the outer surface and the underside of the rear
fascia/bumper is clean and clear of snow, ice, mud, dirt or other obstructions and then
cycle the ignition. If the message continues to appear, see an authorized dealer.
If “PARK ASSIST UNAVAILABLE SERVICE REQUIRED” appears in the EVIC, see an authorized dealer.
Park Assist System Usage Precautions
NOTE:
• Ensure that the outer surface and the underside of the rear bumper is clean and clear
of snow, ice, mud, dirt or other obstruction to keep the Rear Park Assist system operating properly.
• Jackhammers, large trucks, and other vibrations could affect the performance of Rear
Park Assist.
• Clean the Rear Park Assist sensors regularly, taking care not to scratch or damage
them. The sensors must not be covered with ice, snow, slush, mud, dirt or debris. Failure to do so can result in the system not working properly. The Rear Park Assist system might not detect an obstacle behind the fascia/bumper, or it could provide a false
indication that an obstacle is behind the fascia/bumper.
• Objects such as bicycle carriers, etc., must not be placed within 12 inches (30 cm)
from the rear fascia/bumper while driving the vehicle. Failure to do so can result in the
system misinterpreting a close object as a sensor problem, causing a failure indication
to be displayed in the instrument cluster.
64
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
CAUTION!
• Rear Park Assist is only a parking aid and it is unable to recognize every obstacle,
including small obstacles. Parking curbs might be temporarily detected or not detected at all. Obstacles located above or below the sensors will not be detected
when they are in close proximity.
• The vehicle must be driven slowly when using Rear Park Assist in order to be able
to stop in time when an obstacle is detected. It is recommended that the driver
looks over his/her shoulder when using Rear Park Assist.
WARNING!
• Drivers must be careful when backing up even when using the Rear Park Assist
system. Always check carefully behind your vehicle, look behind you, and be sure
to check for pedestrians, animals, other vehicles, obstructions, and blind spots before backing up. You are responsible for safety and must continue to pay attention
to your surroundings. Failure to do so can result in serious injury or death.
• Before using the Rear Park Assist System, it is strongly recommended that the ball
mount and hitch ball assembly is disconnected from the vehicle when the vehicle
is not used for towing. Failure to do so can result in injury or damage to vehicles
or obstacles because the hitch ball will be much closer to the obstacle than the
rear fascia when the warning display turns on the single flashing arc and sounds
the continuous tone. Also, the sensors could detect the ball mount and hitch ball
assembly, depending on its size and shape, giving a false indication that an obstacle
is behind the vehicle.
If it’s necessary to keep the trailer hitch and hitch ball assembly mounted for a long period, it is possible to filter out the trailer hitch and hitch ball assembly presence in sensor
field of view. The filtering operation must be performed only by an authorized dealer.
65
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
PARKVIEW REAR BACK UP CAMERA — IF EQUIPPED
The ParkView Rear Back Up Camera that allows you to see an on-screen image of your
vehicle's rear surroundings when the shift lever is put into REVERSE. The image will be
displayed on the touchscreen display along with a note to “check entire surroundings”
across the top of the screen. After five seconds this note will disappear. The ParkView
camera is located above the rear license plate.
When the vehicle is shifted out of REVERSE (with camera delay turned OFF),
the rear camera mode is exited and the
navigation or audio screen appears again.
When the vehicle is shifted out of REVERSE (with camera delay turned ON), the
camera image will continue to be displayed
for up to 10 seconds after shifting out of
REVERSE unless the vehicle speed exceeds
8 mph (13 km/h), the vehicle is shifted into
PARK or the ignition is switched to the
STOP/OFF position.
A touchscreen button to disable the camParking Camera
era is available when the vehicle is not in
REVERSE. Display of the camera image
after shifting out of REVERSE can be disabled via Uconnect Settings.
When enabled, active guide lines are overlaid on the image to illustrate the width of the
vehicle and its projected backup path based on the steering wheel position.
When enabled, fixed guide lines are overlaid on the image to illustrate the width of the
vehicle.
Different colored zones indicate the distance to the rear of the vehicle.
The following table shows the approximate distances for each zone:
Zone
Red
Yellow
Green
Distance to the rear of the vehicle
0 - 1 ft (0 - 30 cm)
1 ft - 3 ft (30 cm - 1 m)
3 ft or greater (1 m or greater)
NOTE:
If snow, ice, mud, or any foreign substance builds up on the camera lens, clean the lens,
rinse with water, and dry with a soft cloth. Do not cover the lens.

MEDIA HUB – 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.
Audio Jack (AUX)
The AUX 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.
USB/Audio Jack (AUX)
1 — AUX/Audio Jack
• Press the MEDIA button, press “Select
2 — USB Port
Source” and 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. To
activate the AUX, plug in the audio jack.
• 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.
92
ELECTRONICS
USB Port
Connect your iPod or compatible device using a USB cable into the USB Port. 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.
The USB device 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.
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 five minutes for every 1,000 songs loaded on the device. Also
during the reading process, the Shuffle and Browse functions will be disabled. This process ensures 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 play list.
• 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.
93
ELECTRONICS
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 system (see Uconnect Phone for pairing instructions). You can access the music from your
connected Bluetooth device by pressing the “Bluetooth” button on the touchscreen while
in Media mode.

INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WARNING LIGHTS
- Low Fuel Warning Light
This warning light indicates when the fuel level reaches approximately 2.0 gal (7.8 L). This
light will turn on and a single chime will sound.
- 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). The light will turn on when the
ignition switch is turned to the MAR/RUN position and may stay on for as long as four
seconds.
If the ABS light remains on or turns on while driving, it indicates that the Anti-Lock portion of the brake system is not functioning and that service is required. However, the
conventional brake system will continue to operate normally if the BRAKE warning light is
not on.
130
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
If the ABS light is on, the brake system should be serviced as soon as possible to restore
the benefits of Anti-Lock brakes. If the ABS light does not turn on when the ignition
switch is turned to the MAR/RUN position, have the light inspected by an authorized
dealer.
- Air Bag Warning Light
This light will turn on for four to eight seconds as a bulb check when the ignition switch
is first turned to the MAR/RUN position. If the light is either not on during starting, stays
on, or turns on while driving, have the system inspected at an authorized dealer as soon
as possible. Refer to “Occupant Restraints” in “Safety” in your Owner’s Manual on the
DVD for further information.
NOTE:
The Air Bag System is designed to be maintenance free.
- 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 key when the vehicle has completely stopped and the shift lever/gear selector 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.
- 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) which display in the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) or
Driver Information Display (DID) when one or more of your tires is significantly underinflated. Accordingly, when the low tire pressure EVIC or DID display 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.
131
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
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 EVIC or DID display.
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.

- Brake Warning Light
This light monitors various brake functions, including brake fluid level and parking brake
application. If the brake light turns on, it may indicate that the parking brake is applied,
that the brake fluid level is low, or that there is a problem with the anti-lock brake system reservoir.
133
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
If the light remains on when the parking brake has been disengaged, and the fluid level is
at the full mark on the master cylinder reservoir, it indicates a possible brake hydraulic
system malfunction or that a problem with the Brake Booster has been detected by the
Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)/Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system. In this case, the
light will remain on until the condition has been corrected. If the problem is related to
the brake booster, the ABS pump will run when applying the brake, and a brake pedal
pulsation may be felt during each stop.
The dual brake system provides a reserve braking capacity in the event of a failure to a portion of the hydraulic system. A leak in either half of the dual brake system is indicated by
the Brake Warning Light, which will turn on when the brake fluid level in the master cylinder
has dropped below a specified level. The light will remain on until the cause is corrected.
Vehicles equipped with the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) are also equipped with Electronic
Brake Force Distribution (EBD). In the event of an EBD failure, the Brake Warning Light will
turn on along with the ABS Light. Immediate repair to the ABS system is required.
Operation of the Brake Warning Light can be checked by turning the ignition switch from
the STOP/OFF position to the MAR/RUN position. The light should illuminate for approximately two seconds. The light should then turn off unless the parking brake is applied or a brake fault is detected. If the light does not illuminate, have the light inspected
by an authorized dealer.
The light also will turn on when the parking brake is applied with the ignition switch in
the MAR/RUN position.
NOTE:
This light shows only that the parking brake is applied. It does not show the degree of
brake application.
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.
- Electronic Park Brake Failure Indicator
By placing the ignition in MAR position, the light turns on but should go out after a few
seconds. The light comes on when it detects a failure in electric parking brake. The display
shows the message dedicated. Please contact your authorized dealer as soon as possible.
NOTE:
In this case, with heavy braking the rear wheels may lock early and increase the possibility
of skidding.

turning the key from STOP/OFF to MAR/RUN, have the condition checked promptly.
Certain conditions, poor fuel quality, etc., may illuminate the light after engine start. The
vehicle should be serviced if the light stays on through several of your typical driving
cycles. In most situations, the vehicle will drive normally and will not require towing.
CAUTION!
Prolonged driving with the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) on could cause damage to
the engine control system. It also could affect fuel economy and driveability. If the MIL
is flashing, severe catalytic converter damage and power loss will soon occur. Immediate
service is required.
WARNING!
A malfunctioning catalytic converter, as referenced above, can reach higher temperatures
than in normal operating conditions. This can cause a fire if you drive slowly or park
over flammable substances such as dry plants, wood, cardboard, etc. This could result in
death or serious injury to the driver, occupants or others.

WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
IF YOUR ENGINE OVERHEATS
In any of the following situations, you can reduce the potential for overheating your engine by taking the appropriate action.
• On the highways — slow down.
• In city traffic — while stopped, put transmission in NEUTRAL, but do not increase engine idle speed.
CAUTION!
Driving with a hot cooling system could damage your vehicle. If the temperature gauge
reads “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 the “H” and you hear continuous chimes, turn the engine off immediately and call
for service.
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.
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.

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.
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.
WARNING!
Do not attempt jump-starting if the battery is frozen. It could rupture or explode and
cause personal injury.
151
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
Preparations For Jump Start
The battery in your vehicle is located in the front of the engine compartment, behind the
left headlight assembly.
NOTE:
The positive battery post is covered with a
protective cap. Lift up on the cap to gain
access to the positive battery post.
Battery Posts
1 — Positive Battery Post
2 — Negative Battery Post
WARNING!
• 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 rings, watch bands and bracelets that could
make an inadvertent electrical contact. You could be seriously 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.
Proceed as follows:
1. Set the Electric Park Brake, shift the automatic transmission into PARK (manual transmission in NEUTRAL) and turn the ignition to STOP/OFF.
2. Turn off the heater, radio, and all unnecessary electrical accessories.
3. 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 STOP/OFF.
152
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
WARNING!
Do not allow vehicles to touch each other as this could establish a ground connection
and personal injury could result.
Jump Starting Procedure
WARNING!
Failure to follow this jump-starting procedure could result in personal injury or property damage due to battery explosion.
CAUTION!
Failure to follow these procedures could result in damage to the charging system of the
booster vehicle or the discharged vehicle.
Connecting The Jumper Cables
1. Connect the positive (+) end of the jumper cable to the positive (+) post of the discharged vehicle.
2. Connect the opposite end of the positive (+) jumper cable to the positive (+) post of
the booster battery.
3. Connect the negative (-) end of the jumper cable to the negative (-) post of the
booster battery.
4. 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 the
fuel injection system.
WARNING!
Do not connect the jumper cable to the negative (-) post of the discharged battery.
The resulting electrical spark could cause the battery to explode and could result in
serious injury. Only use the specific ground point, do not use any other exposed metal
parts.
5. 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.
153
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
6. Once the engine is started, remove the jumper cables in the reverse sequence:
Disconnecting The Jumper Cables
1. Disconnect the negative (-) end of the jumper cable from the engine ground of the
vehicle with the discharged battery.
2. Disconnect the opposite end of the negative (-) jumper cable from the negative (-)
post of the booster battery.
3. Disconnect the positive (+) end of the jumper cable from the positive (+) post of the
booster battery.
4. Disconnect the opposite end of the positive (+) jumper cable from the positive (+)
post of the vehicle with the discharged battery.
If frequent jump starting is required to start your vehicle you should have the battery
and charging system inspected at your authorized dealer.
CAUTION!
Accessories 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 without engine operation, the vehicle’s battery will discharge sufficiently to degrade battery life and/or prevent the engine from starting.
FREEING A STUCK VEHICLE
If your vehicle becomes stuck in mud, sand or snow, it can often be moved using a rocking motion. Turn the steering wheel right and left to clear the area around the front
wheels. For vehicles with automatic transmission, push and hold the lock button on the
shift lever. Then shift back and forth between DRIVE and REVERSE (with automatic
transmission) or 2ND GEAR and REVERSE (with manual transmission), 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.
154
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
For Vehicles With Automatic Transmission:
Shifts between DRIVE and REVERSE can only be achieved at wheel speeds of 5 mph
(8 km/h) or less. Whenever the transmission remains in NEUTRAL for more than two
seconds, you must push the brake pedal to engage DRIVE or REVERSE.
NOTE:
Push the "ESC Off" switch (if necessary), to place the Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
system in "Partial Off" mode, before rocking the vehicle. Refer to “Electronic Brake Control” in “Starting And Operating” for further information. Once the vehicle has been
freed, push the "ESC Off" switch again to restore "ESC On" mode.
CAUTION!
• Racing the engine or spinning the wheels may lead to transmission overheating and
failure. Allow the engine to idle with the transmission in NEUTRAL for at least
one minute after every five rocking-motion cycles. This will minimize overheating
and reduce the risk of clutch or transmission failure during prolonged efforts to
free a stuck vehicle.
• When “rocking” a stuck vehicle by shifting between DRIVE/2nd gear 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 damage, or even failure, of the axle and tires. A tire could explode and injure
someone. Do not spin your vehicle's wheels faster than 30 mph (48 km/h) or for longer than 30 seconds continuously without stopping when you are stuck and do not let
anyone near a spinning wheel, no matter what the speed.

MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
For information on the maintenance procedures for your vehicle, please refer to “Maintenance Procedures” in “Maintaining Your Vehicle” in your Owner’s Manual or applicable
supplement on the DVD for further details.
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 in
the instrument cluster. This means that service is required for your vehicle. Operating
conditions such as frequent short-trips, trailer tow and extremely hot or cold ambient
temperatures 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).
169
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)” in “Getting To Know Your Instrument Cluster” in your Owner’s Manual on the DVD for further information.
NOTE:
Under no circumstances should oil change intervals exceed 10,000 miles (16,000 km),
twelve months or 350 hours of engine run time, whichever comes first. The 350 hours
of engine run or idle time is generally only a concern for fleet customers.
Severe Duty All Models
Change Engine Oil at 4,000 miles (6,500 km) if the vehicle is operated in a dusty and off
road environment or is operated predominately at idle or only very low engine RPM’s.
This type of vehicle use is considered Severe Duty.
NOTE:
The Oil Change Indicator will not illuminate under these conditions.
Once A Month Or Before A Long Trip:
• Check engine oil level.
• Check windshield washer fluid level.
• Check the tire inflation pressures and look for unusual wear or damage.
• Check the fluid levels of the coolant reservoir, and brake master cylinder reservoir, and
fill as needed.
• Check function of all interior and exterior lights.
Required Maintenance Intervals
At Every Oil Change Interval As Indicated By Oil Change Indicator System:
Change oil and filter.
Inspect battery and clean and tighten terminals as required.
Inspect brake pads, shoes, rotors, drums, and hoses.
Inspect engine cooling system protection and hoses.
Check and adjust hand brake.
Inspect exhaust system.
Inspect engine air filter if using in dusty or off-road conditions.
Refer to the “Maintenance Chart” on the following page for the required maintenance
intervals.

ADDING FUEL
The Capless Fuel System uses a flapper placed at the filler pipe of the fuel tank; it opens
and closes automatically upon insertion/extraction of the fuel nozzle.
The Capless Fuel System is designed so that it prevents the filling of an incorrect type of
fuel.
Opening The Door
For filling proceed as follows:
1. Open the door, by pushing and releasing on the indentation point indicated by the
arrow.
2. Insert the fuel nozzle in the filler pipe
and proceed with filling the fuel tank.
3. Before removing the nozzle, wait at least
10 seconds to allow the fuel to flow
inside of the tank.
4. Pull the nozzle from the filler pipe and
then close the door.

MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
TIRE PRESSURES
Check the inflation pressure of each tire, including the spare tire (if equipped), 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.
Tire And Loading Information Location
(Example)
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
increases tire flexing and can result in over-heating and tire failure. 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. Always drive with each tire inflated to the recommended cold tire inflation pressure.
181
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
SPARE TIRES — IF EQUIPPED
NOTE:
For vehicles equipped with Tire Service Kit instead of a spare tire, please refer to “Tire
Service Kit” in “What To Do In Emergencies” on your DVD for further information.
CAUTION!
Because of the reduced ground clearance, do not take your vehicle through an automatic car wash with a compact or limited-use temporary spare installed. Damage to the
vehicle may result.
Spare Tire Matching Original Equipped Tire And Wheel — If Equipped
Your vehicle may be equipped with a spare tire and wheel equivalent in look and function to the original equipment tire and wheel found on the front or rear axle of your
vehicle. This spare tire may be used in the tire rotation for your vehicle. If your vehicle
has this option, refer to an authorized tire dealer for the recommended tire rotation
pattern.
Compact Spare Tire — If Equipped
The compact spare is for temporary emergency use only. You can identify if your vehicle
is equipped with a compact spare by looking at the spare tire description on the Tire and
Loading Information Placard located on the driver’s side door opening or on the sidewall
of the tire. Compact spare tire descriptions begin with the letter “T” or “S” preceding
the size designation. Example: T145/80D18 103M.
T, S = Temporary Spare Tire
Since this tire has limited tread life, the original equipment tire should be repaired (or
replaced) and reinstalled on your vehicle at the first opportunity.
Do not install a wheel cover or attempt to mount a conventional tire on the compact
spare wheel, since the wheel is designed specifically for the compact spare tire. Do not
install more than one compact spare tire and wheel on the vehicle at any given time.
WARNING!
Compact spares are for temporary emergency use only. With these spares, do not drive
more than 50 mph (80 km/h). Temporary use spares have limited tread life. When the
tread is worn to the tread wear indicators, the temporary use spare tire needs to be
replaced. Be sure to follow the warnings, which apply to your spare. Failure to do so
could result in spare tire failure and loss of vehicle control.
182
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
Full Size Spare — If Equipped
The full size spare is for temporary emergency use only. This tire may look like the originally equipped tire on the front or rear axle of your vehicle, but it is not. This spare tire
may have limited tread life. When the tread is worn to the tread wear indicators, the
temporary use full size spare tire needs to be replaced. Since it is not the same as your
original equipment tire, replace (or repair) the original equipment tire and reinstall on the
vehicle at the first opportunity.
Limited-Use Spare — If Equipped
The limited-use spare tire is for temporary emergency use only. This tire is identified by a
label located on the limited-use spare wheel. This label contains the driving limitations for
this spare. This tire may look like the original equipped tire on the front or rear axle of
your vehicle, but it is not. Installation of this limited-use spare tire affects vehicle handling.
Since it is not the same as your original equipment tire, replace (or repair) the original
equipment tire and reinstall on the vehicle at the first opportunity.
WARNING!
Limited-use spares are for emergency use only. Installation of this limited-use spare tire
affects vehicle handling. With this tire, do not drive more than the speed listed on the
limit-use spare wheel. Keep inflated to the cold tire inflation pressures listed on your
Tire and Loading Information Placard located on the driver’s side B-Pillar or the rear
edge of the driver’s side door. Replace (or repair) the original equipment tire at the
first opportunity and reinstall it on your vehicle. Failure to do so could result 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.

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. FCA US 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.
This guide has been prepared to help you get quickly acquainted with
your new FIAT vehicle and to provide a convenient reference source
