INTRODUCTION/WELCOME
WELCOME FROM FCA US LLC
Congratulations on selecting your new FCA US LLC (“FCA US”) vehicle. Be assured that
it represents precision workmanship, distinctive styling, and high quality - all essentials
that are traditional to our vehicles.
Your new FCA US 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 reserves the right to make changes in design and specifications
and/or make additions to or improvements to its products without imposing any obligation
upon itself to install them on products previously manufactured.
This User Guide has been prepared to help you quickly become acquainted with the
important features of your vehicle. It contains most things you will need to operate and
maintain the vehicle, including emergency information.
The DVD includes a computer application containing detailed Owner's information which
can be viewed on a personal computer or MAC computer. The multimedia DVD also
includes videos which can be played on any standard DVD player (including the Uconnect
Touchscreen Radios if equipped with DVD player capabilities). 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.
FCA US is committed to protecting our environment and natural resources. By converting
from paper to electronic delivery for the majority of the user information for your vehicle,
together we greatly reduce the demand for tree-based products and lessen the stress on
our environment.

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 transmission gear
selector.
• Do not leave the key fob in or near the vehicle, or in a location accessible to children.
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.

INTRODUCTION/WELCOME
USE OF AFTERMARKET PRODUCTS (ELECTRONICS)
The use of aftermarket devices including cell phones, MP3 players, GPS systems, or
chargers may affect the performance of on-board wireless features including Keyless
Enter-N-Go and Remote Start range. If you are experiencing difficulties with any of your
wireless features, try disconnecting your aftermarket devices to see if the situation
improves. If your symptoms persist, please see an authorized dealer.
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
WARNING!
• 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 severely injured or killed. Children should be
warned not to touch the parking brake, brake pedal, or the transmission gear
selector. Do not leave the Key Fob inside 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 start the vehicle, operate power
windows, other controls, or move the vehicle.
• Do not leave children or animals inside parked vehicles in hot weather. Interior heat
build-up may cause them to be severely injured or killed.
• 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
• Push the REMOTE START button
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 the UNLOCK button and cycle the ignition to the ON/RUN
position.
With Remote Start, the engine will only run for 15 minutes (timeout) unless the ignition
is cycled to the ON/RUN position.
The vehicle must be cycled to the ON/RUN position after two consecutive timeouts.
WARNING!
• Do not start or run an engine in a closed garage or confined area. Exhaust gas
contains Carbon Monoxide (CO) which is odorless and colorless. Carbon Monoxide
is poisonous and can cause you or others to be severely injured or killed when
inhaled.
• Keep Key Fob transmitters away from children. Operation of the Remote Start
System, windows, door locks or other controls could cause you and others to be
severely injured or killed.
KEYLESS ENTER-N-GO
Introduction To Keyless Enter-N-Go
The Keyless Enter-N-Go system is an enhancement to the vehicle's Key Fob. This feature
allows you to lock and unlock the vehicle's door(s) and trunk without having to push the
Key Fob lock or unlock buttons as well as starting and stopping the vehicle with the push
of a button.
15
GETTING STARTED
To Unlock From The Driver Or Passenger Side:
• With a valid Keyless Enter-N-Go Key Fob
located outside the vehicle and within 5
ft (1.5 m) of the driver or passenger side
door handle, lift either front door handle
to unlock the door automatically.
Lift The Door Handle To Unlock
To Lock The Vehicle
• Both front door handles have buttons located on the outside of the handle. With one of
the vehicle's Keyless Enter-N-Go Key Fobs located outside the vehicle and within 5 ft
(1.5 m) of the driver's or passenger front door handle, push the door handle button to
lock all four doors and trunk.
• Do NOT grab the door handle when pushing the door handle lock button. This could
unlock the door(s).
Push The Door Handle Button To Lock
Do NOT Grab The Handle When Locking
NOTE:
• If “Unlock All Doors 1st Press” is programmed, all doors will unlock when you grab hold

“Unlock All Doors 1st Press,” refer to the “Uconnect Settings” in your vehicle's Owner's
Manual on the DVD or “Programmable Features” in this guide for further information.
• If a Key Fob is detected in the vehicle when locking the vehicle using the power door
lock switch, the doors will unlock and the horn will chirp three times. On the third
attempt, your Key Fob can be locked inside the vehicle.
16
GETTING STARTED
• After pushing the Keyless Enter-N-Go LOCK button, you must wait two seconds before
you can lock or unlock the vehicle using the door handle. This is done to allow you to
check if the vehicle is locked by pulling the door handle without the vehicle reacting
and unlocking.
• If a Keyless Enter-N-Go door handle has not been used for 72 hours, the Keyless
Enter-N-Go feature for that handle may time out. Pulling the deactivated front door
handle will reactivate the door handle's Keyless Enter-N-Go feature.

located outside the vehicle and within 5
ft (1.5 m) of the deck lid, push the
button on the right side of applique
which is located on the deck lid.

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
• Seat Track Position Sensors
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.
22
GETTING STARTED
• 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.
• 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 rollover or 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.
23
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
pushed. The hazard lights can be deactivated by pushing the hazard light button.
• Turn on the interior lights, which remain on as long as the battery has power.
• Unlock the power door locks.
Enhanced Accident Response System Reset Procedure
In order to reset the Enhanced Accident Response System functions after an event, the
ignition switch must be changed from ignition START or ON/RUN to ignition OFF.
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.
24
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 START or ON/RUN position. If the ignition switch is in the
OFF position or in the ACC 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
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 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.
25
GETTING STARTED
These data can help provide a better understanding of the circumstances in which crashes
and injuries occur.
NOTE:
EDR data are recorded by your vehicle only if a non-trivial crash situation occurs; no data
are recorded by the EDR under normal driving conditions and no personal data (e.g.,
name, gender, age, and crash location) are recorded. However, other parties, such as law
enforcement, could combine the EDR data with the type of personally identifying data
routinely acquired during a crash investigation.
To read data recorded by an EDR, special equipment is required, and access to the vehicle
or the EDR is needed. In addition to the vehicle manufacturer, other parties, such as law
enforcement, that have the special equipment, can read the information if they have
access to the vehicle or the EDR.
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:1-866-732-8243
• 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.
• All rear seating positions have lower anchors and top tether anchors.
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).
26
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.
LATCH Lower Anchors
Locating Tether Anchorages
In addition, there are tether strap anchorages behind each rear seating position located in the panel between the rear seatback and the rear window. These tether
strap anchorages are under a plastic cover
with the tether anchorage symbol
on it.
Tether Anchorages
Center Seat LATCH
If a child restraint installed in the center position blocks the seat belt webbing or buckle
for the outboard position, do not use that outboard position. If a child seat in the center
position blocks the outboard LATCH anchors or seat belt, do not install a child seat in that
outboard position.
27
GETTING STARTED
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.
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 Anchorage 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.
28
GETTING STARTED
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.
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 Strap Installation
1. Rotate or lift the cover to access the anchor directly behind the seat where you are
placing the child restraint.
2. Route the tether strap to provide the most direct path for the strap between the anchor
and the child seat.
3. 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.
4. 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.
• Never place a rear-facing child restraint in front of an air bag. A deploying Passenger
Advanced Front Air Bag can cause death or serious injury to a child 12 years or
younger, including a child in a rear-facing child restraint.
• Only use a rear-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.
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.
NOTE:
Do not reverse the head restraints (making the rear of the head restraint face forward) in
an attempt to gain additional clearance to the back of your head.
30
GETTING STARTED
Reactive Head Restraints — Front Seats
The front driver and passenger seats are equipped with Reactive Head Restraints (RHR).
In the event of a rear impact the RHRs will automatically extend forward minimizing the
gap between the back of the occupants head and the RHR.
The RHRs will automatically return to their normal position following a rear impact. If the
RHRs do not return to their normal position see your authorized dealer immediately.
To raise the head restraint, pull upward on the head restraint. To lower the head restraint,
push the adjustment button located at the base of the head restraint and push downward
on the head restraint.
NOTE:
To remove the head restraint, raise it as far as it can go then push the release button and
the adjustment button at the base of each post while pulling the head restraint up. To
reinstall the head restraint, put the head restraint posts into the holes and push
downward. Then adjust the head restraint to the appropriate height.
WARNING!
• A loose head restraint thrown forward in a collision or hard stop could cause serious
injury or death to occupants of the vehicle. Always securely stow removed head
restraints in a location outside the occupant compartment.
• ALL the head restraints MUST be reinstalled in the vehicle to properly protect the
occupants. Follow the re-installation instructions above prior to operating the
vehicle or occupying a seat.
• Do not place items over the top of the Reactive Head Restraint, such as coats, seat
covers or portable DVD players. These items may interfere with the operation of the
Reactive Head Restraint in the event of a collision and could result in serious injury
or death.
Rear Head Restraints
The center head restraint has two adjustable positions, up or down. When the center seat
is being occupied the head restraint should be in the raised position. When there are no
occupants in the center seat the head restraint can be lowered for maximum visibility for
the driver.
To raise the head restraint, pull upward on the head restraint. To lower the head restraint,
push the adjustment button located at the base of the head restraint and push downward

ENGINE BREAK-IN RECOMMENDATIONS
3.6L Engine Break-In
For vehicles equipped with the 3.6L, use the following engine break-in recommendations:
A long break-in period is not required for the drivetrain (engine, transmission, clutch, and
rear axle) in your new vehicle.
Drive moderately during the first 300 mi (500 km). After the initial 60 mi (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. However, wide-open throttle acceleration in low gear can
be detrimental and should be avoided.
The engine oil, transmission fluid, and axle lubricant installed at the factory is high-quality
and energy-conserving. Oil, fluid, and lubricant changes should be consistent with
anticipated climate and conditions under which vehicle operations will occur. For the
recommended viscosity and quality grades, refer to “Maintenance Procedures” in “Maintaining Your Vehicle”.
CAUTION!
Never use Non-Detergent Oil or Straight Mineral Oil in the engine or damage may
result.
NOTE:
A new engine may consume some oil during its first few thousand miles (kilometers) of
operation. This should be considered a normal part of the break-in and not interpreted as
an indication of difficulty. Please check your oil level with the engine oil indicator often
during the break in period. Add oil as required.

subsequent tap of the button results in an increase of 1 km/h.
• If the button is continually pushed, the set speed will continue to increase in 10 km/h
increments until the button is released. The increase in set speed is reflected in the DID.
To Decrease Speed
While ACC is set, the set speed can be decreased by pushing the SET - button.
The drivers preferred units can be selected through the instrument panel settings if
equipped. Refer to “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” in the Owner’s Manual on the
DVD for more information. The speed increment shown is dependant on the speed of U.S.
(mph) or Metric (km/h) units:
U.S. Speed (mph)
• Pushing the SET - button once will result in a 1 mph decrease in set speed. Each
subsequent tap of the button results in a decrease of 1 mph.
• If the button is continually pushed, the set speed will continue to decrease in 5 mph
decrements until the button is released. The decrease in set speed is reflected in the DID.
Metric Speed (km/h)
• Pushing the SET - button once will result in a 1 km/h decrease in set speed. Each
subsequent tap of the button results in a decrease of 1 km/h.
• If the button is continually pushed, the set speed will continue to decrease in 10 km/h
decrements until the button is released. The decrease in set speed is reflected in the DID.
NOTE:
• When you override and push the SET + button or SET - buttons, the new Set Speed will
be the current speed of the vehicle.
• When you use the SET - button to decelerate, if the engine’s braking power does not
slow the vehicle sufficiently to reach the set speed, the brake system will automatically
slow the vehicle.
• The ACC system applies the brake down to a full stop when following a target vehicle.
If an ACC host vehicle follows a target vehicle to a standstill, the host vehicle will release
the vehicle brakes two seconds after coming to a full stop.
• The ACC system maintains set speed when driving up hill and down hill. However, a
slight speed change on moderate hills is normal. In addition, downshifting may occur
while climbing uphill or descending downhill. This is normal operation and necessary
to maintain set speed. When driving up hill and down hill, the ACC system will cancel
if the braking temperature exceeds normal range (overheated).

Distance Setting (ACC Only)
The specified following distance for ACC can be set by varying the distance setting
between four bars (longest), three bars (long), two bars (medium) and one bar (short).
Using this distance setting and the vehicle speed, ACC calculates and sets the distance
to the vehicle ahead. This distance setting displays in the DID.
• To increase the distance setting, push the Distance Setting—Increase button and
release. Each time the button is pushed, the distance setting increases by one bar
(longer).
• To decrease the distance setting, push the Distance Setting—Decrease button and
release. Each time the button is pushed, the distance setting decreases by one bar
(shorter).
Changing Modes (ACC Only)
If desired, the Adaptive Cruise Control mode can be turned off and the system can be
operated as a normal (Fixed Speed) Speed Control mode. When in the normal (Fixed
Speed) Speed Control mode the distance setting feature will be disabled and the system
will maintain the speed you set.
• To change between the different cruise control modes, push the ADAPTIVE CRUISE
CONTROL (ACC) ON/OFF button which turns the ACC and the normal (Fixed Speed)
Speed Control OFF.
• Pushing the normal (Fixed Speed) SPEED CONTROL ON/OFF button will result in
turning ON (changing to) the normal (Fixed Speed) Speed Control mode.

O P E R AT I N G Y O U R V E H I C L E
WARNING!
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is a convenience system. It is not a substitute for active
driving involvement. It is always the driver’s responsibility to be attentive of road,
traffic, and weather conditions, vehicle speed, distance to the vehicle ahead; and, most
importantly, brake operation to ensure safe operation of the vehicle under all road
conditions. Your complete attention is always required while driving to maintain safe
control of your vehicle. Failure to follow these warnings can result in a collision and
death or serious personal injury.
The ACC system:
• Does not react to pedestrians, oncoming vehicles, and stationary objects (e.g., a
stopped vehicle in a traffic jam or a disabled vehicle).
• Cannot take street, traffic, and weather conditions into account, and may be limited
upon adverse sight distance conditions.
• Does not always fully recognize complex driving conditions, which can result in
wrong or missing distance warnings.
• Will bring the vehicle to a complete stop while following a target vehicle and hold
the vehicle for 2 seconds in the stop position. If the target vehicle does not start
moving within two seconds the ACC system will display a message that the system
will release the brakes and that the brakes must be applied manually. An audible
chime will sound when the brakes are released.
You should switch off the ACC system:
• When driving in fog, heavy rain, heavy snow, sleet, heavy traffic, and complex
driving situations (i.e., in highway construction zones).
• When entering a turn lane or highway off ramp; when driving on roads that are
winding, icy, snow-covered, slippery, or have steep uphill or downhill slopes.
• When towing a trailer up or down steep slopes.
• When circumstances do not allow safe driving at a constant speed.
The Cruise Control system has two control modes:
• Adaptive Cruise Control mode for maintaining an appropriate distance between
vehicles.
• Normal (fixed speed) electronic speed control mode for cruising at a constant
preset speed. For additional information, refer to “Normal (Fixed Speed) Cruise
Control Mode” in this section.
Normal (fixed speed) electronic speed control will not react to preceding vehicles.
Always be aware of the mode selected.
You can change the mode by using the Cruise Control buttons. The two control modes
function differently. Always confirm which mode is selected.

FORWARD COLLISION WARNING (FCW)
The Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system provides the driver with audible warnings
and visual warnings within the Driver Information Display (DID), to warn the driver when
it detects a potential frontal collision. The warnings are intended to provide the driver with
enough time to react, avoid or mitigate the potential collision.
NOTE:
FCW 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.
Turning FCW ON Or OFF
The forward collision button is located on the switch panel below the Uconnect display.
• To turn the FCW system OFF, push the forward collision button once (LED turns on).
• To turn the FCW system back ON, push the forward collision button again (LED turns
off).
NOTE:
• The default status of FCW is “On”, this allows the system to warn you of a possible
collision with the vehicle in front of you.
• Changing the FCW status to “Off” prevents the system from warning you of a possible
collision with the vehicle in front of you. If FCW is set to “Off”, “FCW OFF” will be
displayed in the Driver Information Display (DID).
Changing FCW Status
The FCW feature has two settings and can be changed within the Uconnect System
Screen:
• Far
• Near
Far
The default status of FCW is the “Far” setting.
The far setting provides warnings for potential collisions more distant in front of the
vehicle, allowing the driver to have the most reaction time to avoid a collision.
More cautious drivers that do not mind frequent warnings may prefer this setting.
NOTE:
This setting gives you the most reaction time.
59
O P E R AT I N G Y O U R V E H I C L E
Near
Changing the FCW status to the “Near” setting, allows the system to warn you of a
potential frontal collision when you are much closer.
This setting provides less reaction time than the “Far” setting, which allows for a more
dynamic driving experience.
More dynamic or aggressive drivers that want to avoid frequent warnings may prefer this
setting.
Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details.
WARNING!
Forward Collision Warning (FCW) is not intended to avoid a collision on its own, nor can
FCW 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.
LANESENSE
The LaneSense system can be enabled and disabled with the LaneSense button, located
on the switch panel below the Uconnect display.
• Push the LaneSense button
to turn the system ON (LED turns off).
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 Driver Information Display (DID) 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 Driver Information Display (DID) 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.
Refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details.
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.

PARKVIEW REAR BACK UP CAMERA
Your vehicle may be equipped with the ParkView Rear Back Up Camera that allows you to
see an on-screen image of the rear surroundings of your vehicle whenever the shift
lever/gear selector is put into REVERSE. The ParkView camera is located on the rear of the
vehicle above the rear license plate. The image will be displayed in the touchscreen
display along with a caution note to “check entire surroundings” across the top of the
screen. After five seconds this note will disappear.
NOTE:
The ParkView Rear Back Up Camera has programmable modes of operation that may be
selected through the Uconnect System. Refer to “Uconnect Settings” in “Understanding
Your Instrument Panel” in the Owner’s Manual on the DVD for further information.
If your vehicle is equipped with the Camera Delay feature and it is turned ON, the rear
camera image will be displayed for up to 10 seconds when the vehicle is shifted out of
REVERSE unless the forward vehicle speed exceeds 8 mph (13 km/h), the transmission
is shifted into "PARK" or the vehicle's ignition is cycled to the OFF position.
When the Vehicle is shifted out of Reverse (with camera delay turned OFF) the rear camera
mode is exited and the last touchscreen appears again.
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. The active
guide lines will show separate zones that will help indicate the distance to the rear of the
vehicle.
Different colored zones indicate the distance to the rear of the vehicle.
WARNING!
Drivers must be careful when backing up even when using the ParkView Rear Back Up
Camera. Always check carefully behind your vehicle, and be sure to check for
pedestrians, animals, other vehicles, obstructions, or blind spots before backing up.
You are responsible for the safety of your surroundings and must continue to pay
attention while backing up. Failure to do so can result in serious injury or death.
CAUTION!
• To avoid vehicle damage, ParkView should only be used as a parking aid. The
ParkView camera is unable to view every obstacle or object in your drive path.
• To avoid vehicle damage, the vehicle must be driven slowly when using ParkView to
be able to stop in time when an obstacle is seen. It is recommended that the driver
look frequently over his/her shoulder when using ParkView.
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.

BLIND SPOT MONITORING
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.
The BSM warning light, located in the outside mirrors, will illuminate if a vehicle moves
into a blind spot zone.
The BSM system can also be configured to sound an audible (chime) alert and mute the
radio to notify you of objects that have entered the detection zones.
Refer to “Blind Spot Monitoring” in “Understanding The Features Of Your Vehicle” in your
Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details.
EIGHT-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
The transmission gear range (PRNDM) is displayed both on the shift lever and in the Driver
Information Display (DID).
To select a gear range, press the lock button on the shift lever and move the lever rearward
or forward. To shift the transmission out of PARK, the engine must be running and the
brake pedal must be pressed. You must also press the brake pedal to shift from NEUTRAL
into DRIVE or REVERSE when the vehicle is stopped or moving at low speeds. Select the
DRIVE range for normal driving.
The electronically-controlled transmission
provides a precise shift schedule. The transmission electronics are self-calibrating;
therefore, the first few shifts on a new vehicle
may be somewhat abrupt. This is a normal
condition, and precision shifts will develop
within a few hundred miles (kilometers).
Only shift from DRIVE to PARK or REVERSE when the accelerator pedal is released and the vehicle is stopped. Be sure
to keep your foot on the brake pedal when
shifting between these gears.
The transmission shift lever has PARK, RETransmission Shift Lever
VERSE, NEUTRAL, DRIVE, and MANUAL
(Autostick) shift positions. Manual shifts can 1 — Lock Button
be made using the Autostick shift control 2 — Shift Lever
(refer to “AutoStick” in this section for further information). Toggling the shift lever forward (-) or rearward (+) while in the MANUAL
(AutoStick) position (beside the DRIVE position) will manually select the transmission gear,
and will display the current gear in the instrument cluster as M1, M2, M3, etc.
62
O P E R AT I N G Y O U R V E H I C L E
NOTE:
If the shift lever cannot be moved to the PARK, REVERSE, or NEUTRAL position (when
pushed forward) it is probably in the MANUAL (AutoStick, +/-) position (beside the DRIVE
position). In MANUAL (AutoStick) mode, the transmission gear is displayed in the
instrument cluster (as M1, M2, M3, etc.). Move the shift lever to the right (into the DRIVE
[D] position) for access to PARK, REVERSE, and NEUTRAL.
Refer to Automatic Transmission in the Owner’s Manual on your DVD for further
information.
AUTOSTICK/STEERING WHEEL MOUNTED PADDLE SHIFTERS
AutoStick is a driver-interactive transmission feature that offers manual gear shifting to
provide you with more control of the vehicle. AutoStick allows you to maximize engine
braking, and improve overall vehicle performance.
This system can also provide you with more
control during passing, city driving, cold
slippery conditions, mountain driving,
trailer towing, and many other situations.
Operation
When the shift lever is in the DRIVE (D)
Shifter Paddles
position, the transmission will operate au2 — (+) Shift
tomatically, shifting between the eight 1 — (–) Shift
Paddle
Paddle
available gears. To activate AutoStick, move
the shift lever into the MANUAL (M) position (beside the DRIVE position). The current transmission gear will be displayed in
the instrument cluster, along with a highlighted "M" (Manual) indication. When the shift
lever is in the MANUAL (M) position, tap the shift lever forward (-) (or tap the (-) shift
paddle on the steering wheel, if equipped) to downshift the transmission to the next lower
gear, or tap the lever rearward (+) (or tap the (+) shift paddle, if equipped) to command an
upshift.
NOTE:
Tapping one of the steering wheel-mounted shift paddles (+/-), if equipped, while the shift
lever is in DRIVE, will activate a temporary AutoStick mode. Tapping (-) to enter AutoStick
mode will downshift the transmission to the next lower gear, while tapping (+) to enter
AutoStick mode will retain the current gear. The current gear will be displayed in the
instrument cluster, but the "M" will not be highlighted. The transmission will revert back
to normal operation (if the shift lever remains in DRIVE) after a period of time, depending
on accelerator pedal activity.
63
O P E R AT I N G Y O U R V E H I C L E
In AutoStick mode, the transmission will shift up or down when (+/-) is manually selected
by the driver (using the shift lever, or the shift paddles [if equipped]), unless an engine
lugging or overspeed condition would result. It will remain in the selected gear until
another upshift or downshift is chosen, except as described below.
• In temporary AutoStick mode (shift lever in DRIVE), the transmission will automatically
shift up when maximum engine speed is reached. If the accelerator is fully depressed,
the transmission will downshift when possible (based on current vehicle speed and
gear, except 6.2L and 6.4L models). Lack of accelerator pedal activity will cause the
transmission to revert to automatic operation.
• If normal AutoStick mode is engaged (shift lever in MANUAL position), manual gear
selection will be maintained until the shift lever is returned to DRIVE, or as described
below. The transmission will not upshift automatically at redline in this mode, nor will
downshifts be obtained if the accelerator pedal is pressed to the floor.
• The transmission will automatically downshift as the vehicle slows (to prevent engine
lugging) and will display the current gear.
• The transmission will automatically downshift to first gear when coming to a stop. After
a stop, the driver should manually upshift (+) the transmission as the vehicle is
accelerated.
• You can start out, from a stop, in first or second gear. Tapping (+) (at a stop) will allow
starting in second gear. Starting out in second gear can be helpful in snowy or icy
conditions.
• If a requested downshift would cause the engine to over-speed, that shift will not occur.
• The system will ignore attempts to upshift at too low of a vehicle speed.
• Holding the (-) paddle depressed (if equipped), or holding the shift lever in the (-)
position, will downshift the transmission to the lowest gear possible at the current
speed.
• Transmission shifting will be more noticeable when AutoStick is engaged.
• The system may revert to automatic shift mode if a fault or overheat condition is
detected.
To disengage AutoStick mode, return the shift lever to the DRIVE position, or press and
hold the (+) shift paddle (if equipped, and the shift lever is already in DRIVE) until “D” is
once again indicated in the instrument cluster. You can shift in or out of the AutoStick
mode at any time without taking your foot off the accelerator pedal.
WARNING!
Do not downshift for additional engine braking on a slippery surface. The drive wheels
could lose their grip and the vehicle could skid, causing a collision or personal injury.

WARNING!
• ALWAYS obey traffic laws and pay attention to the road. Some Uconnect Access
services, including 9-1-1 and Assist, will NOT work without an operable 1X
(voice/data) or 3G (data) network connection.
• ALWAYS drive safely with your hands on the steering wheel. You have full responsibility and assume all risks related to the use of the Uconnect features and
applications in this vehicle. Only use Uconnect when it is safe to do so. Failure to
do so may result in an accident involving serious injury or death.
• Ignoring the rearview mirror light could mean you may not have 9-1-1 Call service
if needed. If the rearview mirror light is illuminated, have an authorized dealer
service the 9-1-1 Call system immediately.
• The Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) turns on the Air Bag Warning Light on the
instrument panel if a malfunction is detected in any part of the airbag system. If the
Air Bag Warning Light is illuminated, the air bag system may not be working
properly and the 9-1-1 system may not send a signal to a 9-1-1 operator if an air bag
is deployed. If the Air Bag Warning Light is illuminated, have an authorized dealer
service your vehicle immediately.
• If anyone in the vehicle could be in danger (e.g., fire or smoke is visible, dangerous
road conditions or location), do not wait for voice contact from a 9-1-1 operator. All
occupants should exit the vehicle immediately and move to a safe location.
• The 9-1-1 Call system is embedded into the vehicle’s electrical system. Do not add
aftermarket electrical equipment to the vehicle’s electrical system. This may
prevent your vehicle from sending a signal to initiate an emergency call. To avoid
interference that can cause the 9-1-1 Call system to fail, never add aftermarket
equipment (e.g., two-way mobile radio, CB radio, data recorder, etc.) to your
vehicle’s electrical system or modify the antennas on your vehicle.
• IF YOUR VEHICLE LOSES BATTERY POWER FOR ANY REASON (INCLUDING
DURING OR AFTER AN ACCIDENT), the Uconnect features, apps and services,
among others, will not operate.

purchase a Wifi Hotspot subscription at the Uconnect Store. After you've made your
purchase, turn on your signal and connect your passengers devices. It's never been
easier to bring your home or office with you.

INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WARNING LIGHTS
– Low Fuel Warning Light
This warning light indicates when the fuel level reaches approximately 1.5 gal (5.8 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 when this light
turns on.
We recommend you do not operate the vehicle or engine damage will occur. Have the
vehicle serviced immediately.
– Anti-Lock Brake (ABS) Light
This light monitors the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS).
If the light is not on during startup, stays on, or turns on while driving we recommend you
contact the nearest authorized dealer and have the vehicle serviced immediately.
– Air Bag Warning Light
If the light is not on during startup, stays on, or turns on while driving have the vehicle
serviced by an authorized dealer immediately.
158
W H AT T O D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
– Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) Indicator Light
This light informs you of a problem with the system.
If a problem is detected, the light will come on while the engine is running. Cycle the
ignition when the vehicle has completely stopped and the shift lever is placed in the PARK
position; the light should turn off.
If the light remains lit with the engine running, your vehicle will usually be drivable.
However, see an authorized dealer 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) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more
of your tires is significantly under-inflated. Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale
illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible and inflate them to
the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to
overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire
tread life and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability.
IF THE LIGHT STARTS FLASHING INDICATING A LOW TIRE PRESSURE, ADJUST THE
AIR PRESSURE IN THE LOW TIRE TO THE AIR PRESSURE SHOWN ON THE VEHICLE
PLACARD OR TIRE INFLATION PRESSURE LABEL LOCATED ON THE DRIVER'S DOOR.
NOTE:
AFTER INFLATION, THE VEHICLE MAY NEED TO BE DRIVEN FOR 20 MINUTES
BEFORE THE FLASHING LIGHT WILL TURN OFF.
Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the
driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not
reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.
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.
159
W H AT T O D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
When the system detects a malfunction, the telltale will flash for approximately one
minute and then remain continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon
subsequent vehicle start-ups as long as the malfunction exists. 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 or flashes continuously while driving, safely pull over and stop the
vehicle. If the A/C system is on, turn it off. Also, shift the transmission into NEUTRAL and
idle the vehicle. If the temperature reading does not return to normal, turn the engine off
immediately.
We recommend that you do not operate the vehicle or engine damage will occur. Have the
vehicle serviced immediately.
WARNING!
A hot engine cooling system is dangerous. You or others could be badly burned by
steam or boiling coolant.

W H AT T O D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
– Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Indicator Light
The “ESC Indicator Light” in the instrument cluster will come on when the ignition switch
is turned to the ON/RUN position. It should go out with the engine running. If the “ESC
Indicator Light” comes on continuously with the engine running, a malfunction has been
detected in the ESC system.
If this light remains on after several ignition cycles, and the vehicle has been driven
several miles (kilometers) at speeds greater than 30 mph (48 km/h), we recommend you
drive to the nearest service center and have the vehicle serviced immediately.
– 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 brake system master
cylinder reservoir.
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 OFF position to the ON/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
ON/RUN position.
NOTE:
This light shows only that the parking brake is applied. It does not show the degree of
brake application.

W H AT T O D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
IF YOUR ENGINE OVERHEATS
In any of the following situations, you can reduce the potential for overheating by taking
the appropriate action.
• On the highways — slow down.
• In city traffic — while stopped, place the transmission in NEUTRAL, but do not
increase the engine idle speed.
NOTE:
There are steps that you can take to slow down an impending overheat condition:
• If your air conditioner (A/C) is on, turn it off. The A/C system adds heat to the engine
cooling system and turning the A/C off can help remove this heat.
• You can also turn the temperature control to maximum heat, the mode control to floor
and the blower control to high. This allows the heater core to act as a supplement to the
radiator and aids in removing heat from the engine cooling system.
CAUTION!
Driving with a hot cooling system could damage your vehicle. If the temperature gauge
reads “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,” turn the engine off immediately and call for service.
WARNING!
You or others can be badly burned by hot engine coolant (antifreeze) or steam from your
radiator. If you see or hear steam coming from under the hood, do not open the hood
until the radiator has had time to cool. Never try to open a cooling system pressure cap

• Do not lift or carry the Tire Service Kit by the hoses.
WARNING!
• Do not attempt to seal a tire on the side of the vehicle closest to traffic. Pull far
enough off the road to avoid the danger of being hit when using the Tire Service Kit.
• Do not use Tire Service Kit or drive the vehicle under the following circumstances:
• If the puncture in the tire tread is approximately 1/4 inch (6 mm) or larger.
• If the tire has any sidewall damage.
• If the tire has any damage from driving with extremely low tire pressure.
• If the tire has any damage from driving on a flat tire.
• If the wheel has any damage.
• If you are unsure of the condition of the tire or the wheel.
• Keep Tire Service Kit away from open flames or heat source.
• A loose Tire Service Kit thrown forward in a collision or hard stop could endanger the
occupants of the vehicle. Always stow the Tire Service Kit in the place provided.
Failure to follow these warnings can result in injuries that are serious or fatal to you,
your passengers, and others around you.
• Take care not to allow the contents of Tire Service Kit to come in contact with hair,
eyes, or clothing. Tire Service Kit sealant is harmful if inhaled, swallowed, or
absorbed through the skin. It causes skin, eye, and respiratory irritation. Flush
immediately with plenty of water if there is any contact with eyes or skin. Change
clothing as soon as possible, if there is any contact with clothing.
• Tire Service Kit Sealant solution contains latex. In case of an allergic reaction or
rash, consult a physician immediately. Keep Tire Service Kit out of reach of
children. If swallowed, rinse mouth immediately with plenty of water and drink

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.
Push and hold the lock button on the shift lever. Then shift back and forth between DRIVE
and REVERSE while gently pressing the accelerator. Use the least amount of accelerator
pedal pressure that will maintain the rocking motion, without spinning the wheels or
racing the engine.
NOTE:
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 2
seconds, you must press the brake pedal to engage DRIVE or REVERSE.
185
W H AT T O D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
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 transmission failure during prolonged efforts to free a stuck vehicle.
NOTE:
Push the "ESC Off" switch, 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” in your Owner's Manual on the DVD for further information.
Once the vehicle has been freed, push the "ESC Off" switch again to restore "ESC On"
mode.
CAUTION!
• When “rocking” a stuck vehicle by shifting between DRIVE 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).

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 — NON-SRT
Your vehicle is equipped with an automatic oil change indicator system. The oil change
indicator system will remind you that it is time to take your vehicle in for scheduled
maintenance.
Based on engine operation conditions, the oil change indicator message will illuminate.
This means that service is required for your vehicle. Operating conditions such as frequent
short-trips, trailer tow, extremely hot or cold ambient temperatures, and E85 fuel usage
will influence when the “Change Oil” or “Oil Change Required” message is displayed.
Severe Operating Conditions can cause the change oil message to illuminate as early as
3,500 miles (5,600 km) since last reset. Have your vehicle serviced as soon as possible,
within the next 500 miles (805 km).
The “Oil Change Required” message will be displayed in the DID and a single chime will
sound, indicating that an oil change is necessary.
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
“Instrument Cluster Warning Lights” in “What To Do In Emergencies” in this guide or
“Driver Information Dispay (DID)” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” in your
Owners 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.
201
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
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 predominantly at idle or only very low engine RPM’s. This
type of vehicle use is considered Severe Duty.
Once A Month Or Before A Long Trip:
• Check engine oil level
• Check windshield washer fluid level
• Check tire pressure and look for unusual wear or damage. Rotate tires at the first sign
of irregular wear, even if it occurs before your next scheduled service.
• Check the fluid levels of the coolant reservoir, brake master cylinder, and power
steering (if equipped) and fill as needed.
• Check function of all interior and exterior lights
Required Maintenance Intervals:
Refer to the maintenance schedules on the following page for the required maintenance
intervals.
At Every Oil Change Interval As Indicated By Oil Change Indicator System:
• Change oil and filter
• Rotate the tires. Rotate at the first sign of irregular wear, even if it occurs before your next
scheduled service
• Inspect battery and clean and tighten terminals as required
• Inspect brake pads, shoes, rotors, drums, hoses and park brake
• Inspect engine cooling system protection and hoses
• Inspect exhaust system
• Inspect engine air cleaner if using in dusty or off-road conditions

FUSES
WARNING!
• When replacing a blown fuse, always use an appropriate replacement fuse with the
same amp rating as the original fuse. Never replace a fuse with another fuse of
higher amp rating. Never replace a blown fuse with metal wires or any other
material. Failure to use proper fuses may result in serious personal injury, fire and/or
property damage.
• Before replacing a fuse, make sure that the ignition is off and that all the other
services are switched off and/or disengaged.
• If the replaced fuse blows again, contact an authorized dealer.
• If a general protection fuse for safety systems (air bag system, braking system),
power unit systems (engine system, gearbox system) or steering system blows,
contact an authorized dealer.
Front Power Distribution Center (Fuses)
The Front Power Distribution Center is located in the engine compartment. This module
contains fuses and relays. Fuse cavity location and descriptions are printed on the inside
of the power distribution center cover.
CAUTION!
• When installing the power distribution center cover, it is important to ensure the
cover is properly positioned and fully latched. Failure to do so may allow water to get
into the power distribution center and possibly result in an electrical system failure.
• When replacing a blown fuse, it is important to use only a fuse having the correct
amperage rating. The use of a fuse with a rating other than indicated may result in
a dangerous electrical system overload. If a properly rated fuse continues to blow,
it indicates a problem in the circuit that must be corrected.

TIRES — GENERAL INFORMATION
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 or B pillar.
NOTE:
Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD or
the Tire Information Supplement located in
your Owner’s Information kit 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.
220
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.
221
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.

Emergency Refueling
A funnel is provided (located in the trunk in the spare tire area) to open the flapper door
to allow for emergency refueling with a gas can.
Emergency Fuel Funnel
CAUTION!
To avoid fuel spillage and overfilling, do not “top off” the fuel tank after filling.
WARNING!
• Never have any smoking materials lit in or near the vehicle when the fuel door is
open or the tank is being filled.
• Never add fuel when the engine is running. This is in violation of most state and
federal fire regulations and/or local bylaws, and will cause the MIL to turn on.
• A fire may result if gasoline is pumped into a portable container that is inside of a
vehicle. You could be burned. Always place gas containers on the ground while
filling.
FLEXIBLE FUEL (3.6L ENGINE ONLY) — IF EQUIPPED
E-85 General Information
The information in this section is unique for Flexible Fuel vehicles only. These vehicles
can be identified by a unique fuel filler door label that states Ethanol (E-85) or Unleaded
Gasoline Only and a yellow fuel cap. Refer to the Owner’s Manual on the DVD for further
information.
CAUTION!
Only vehicles with the E-85 fuel filler door label or a yellow gas cap can operate on
E-85.

REPORTING SAFETY DEFECTS IN THE UNITED STATES
If you believe that your vehicle has a defect that could cause a collision or cause injury or
death, you should immediately inform the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
(NHTSA) in addition to notifying the manufacturer.
If NHTSA receives similar complaints, it may open an investigation, and if it finds that a
safety defect exists in a group of vehicles, it may order a recall and remedy campaign.
However, NHTSA cannot become involved in individual problems between you, your
authorized dealer and the manufacturer.
To contact NHTSA, you may either call the Auto Safety Hotline toll free at
1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov; or write to:
Administrator, NHTSA, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., West Building, Washington, D.C.
20590. You can also obtain other information about motor vehicle safety from
http://www.safercar.gov.
In Canada
If you believe that your vehicle has a safety defect, you should contact the Customer
Service Department immediately. Canadian customers who wish to report a safety defect
to the Canadian government should contact Transport Canada, Motor Vehicle Defect
Investigations and Recalls at 1-800-333-0510 or go to http://www.tc.gc.ca/roadsafety/.
