the side of the
shift lever. The
display on the
instrument panel
cluster will show
the current gear
selection.
The transmission will be limited to the gear selected
and lower gears. Gears higher than the

If current vehicle speed is too high or
too low for the requested gear, the shift
will not occur.
See Section 2 of your Owner Manual.
StabiliTrak ® – Stability Control
System
StabiliTrak is an advanced computercontrolled vehicle stability and traction
enhancement system that assists with
directional control of the vehicle in
difficult driving conditions. It turns on
automatically every time you start your
vehicle.
To limit wheelspin and help maintain
directional control, you should always

Tire Pressure Monitor
The Tire Pressure Monitor alerts you
when a significant reduction in pressure
occurs in one or more of your vehicle’s
tires by illuminating the
(Low Tire
Pressure) warning light on the instrument panel. The low tire pressure
warning light will remain on until you
correct the tire pressure.
A CHECK TIRE PRESSURE message
may appear on the DIC.
Correcting the Tire Pressure
When the low tire pressure warning light
illuminates, you must fill the tire to the
proper tire inflation pressure. The Tire
and Loading Information label, located
on the center pillar below the driver’s
door latch, shows the correct inflation
pressure for the tires when they’re cold.
“Cold” means your vehicle has been
sitting for at least three hours or driven
no more than one mile.
You can temporarily remove the DIC
message by acknowledging it with your
DIC controls. However, at the next
vehicle startup, the DIC message will
reappear if the tire pressure has not
been corrected.
You may notice during cooler conditions
that the low tire pressure warning light
will appear when the vehicle is first
started and then turn off as you start to
drive the vehicle. This could be an early
indicator that your tire pressures are getting low and need to be inflated to the
proper pressure.
Note: The Tire Pressure Monitor can
alert you about low tire pressure, but it
doesn’t replace normal monthly tire
maintenance.
See Section 5 of your Owner Manual.
Resetting the Oil Life System
The Oil Life System calculates engine oil
life based on vehicle use and displays
CHANGE OIL SOON in the Driver
Information Center (DIC) when it’s
necessary to change your engine oil and
filter. The Oil Life System should be
reset to 100% only following an oil
change.
To reset the Oil Life System (without
DIC):
1. Turn on the ignition, with the engine
off.

five seconds.
3. Turn off the ignition.
To reset the Oil Life System (with DIC):
