HOW TO USE THIS MANUAL
HOW TO USE THIS MANUAL
Essential Information
Each time direction instructions (left/right or
forwards/backwards) about the vehicle are
given, these must be intended as regarding an
occupant in the driver's seat. Special cases not
complying with this rule will be properly specified in the text.
The figures in this User Guide are provided by
way of example only: this might imply that some
details of the image do not correspond to the
actual arrangement of your vehicle.
In addition, the User Guide has been conceived
considering vehicles with the steering wheel on
the left side; it is therefore possible that in
2
vehicles with the steering wheel on the right
side, the position or construction of some controls is not exactly mirror-like with respect to the
figure.
To identify the chapter with the information
needed you can consult the index at the end of
this User Guide.
Chapters can be rapidly identified with dedicated graphic tabs, at the side of each odd
page. A few pages further there is a key for
getting to know the chapter order and the relevant symbols in the tabs. There is always a
textual indication of the current chapter at the
side of each even page.
Symbols
Some vehicle components have colored labels
whose symbols indicate precautions to be observed when using this component.
WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS
While reading this User Guide you will find a
series of WARNINGS to be followed to prevent
incorrect use of components which could cause
accidents or injuries.
There are also CAUTIONS that must be followed
to prevent against procedures that could result
in damage to your vehicle.

GETTING TO KNOW YOUR VEHICLE
KEYS
Key Fob
NOTE:
In the ON/RUN position, key fob commands are
disabled if the vehicle is at or above 5 MPH.
Your vehicle uses a keyless ignition system. The
ignition system consists of a key fob with Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) and a START/STOP
push button ignition system. The Remote Keyless Entry system consists of a key fob and
Keyless Enter-N-Go feature if equipped.
To remove the emergency key, slide the mechanical release button on the back of the key
fob sideways with your thumb and then pull the
key out with your other hand.
NOTE:
The key fob may not be found if it is located next
to a mobile phone, laptop or other electronic
device; these devices may block the key fob’s
wireless signal.
The key fob allows you to lock or unlock the
doors and trunk from distances up to approximately 66 feet (20 m) using a handheld key fob.
The key fob does not need to be pointed at the
vehicle to activate the system.
NOTE:
SRT vehicles, equipped with the 6.2L Supercharged engine, come with three key fobs (two
red and one black) that allow for different engine power levels. Please refer to the “Drive
Mode Supplement” for further descriptions.
12
The emergency key allows for entry into the
vehicle should the battery in the vehicle or the
key fob go dead. The emergency key is also for
locking/unlocking the glove compartment. You
can keep the emergency key with you when
valet parking.

6 — Emergency
Key
The key fob also contains an emergency key,
which is stored in the rear of the key fob.
NOTE:
In case the ignition switch does not change with
the push of a button, the key fob may have a low
or dead battery. In this situation, a backup
method can be used to operate the ignition
switch. Put the nose side of the key fob (side
opposite of the Emergency Key) against the
ENGINE START/STOP button and push to operate the ignition switch.
To Unlock The Doors
Push and release the unlock button on the key
fob once to unlock the driver's door or twice
within five seconds to unlock all doors.
The turn signal lights will flash to acknowledge
the unlock signal. The illuminated entry system
will also be activated.
NOTE:
All door unlock settings can be programmed to
your convenience through Uconnect Settings.
Refer to “Uconnect Settings” in “Multimedia”
in the Owner’s Manual for further information.
• Unlock the driver door on the first push of the
key fob unlock button.
• Unlock all doors on the first push of the key
fob unlock button.
NOTE:
To unlock doors and trunk with passive entry,
Refer to “Keyless Enter-N-Go — Passive Entry”
located in “Doors” in “Getting To Know Your
Vehicle” in the Owner’s Manual for further information.
NOTE:
When you use the key fob to open any door, the
courtesy lights, overhead lights, and approach
lighting in the outside mirrors (if equipped) will
turn on. Refer to “Interior Lights” in “Getting To
Know Your Vehicle” in the Owner’s Manual for
further information
Request For Additional Remote Controls
NOTE:
Only key fobs that are programmed to the vehicle electronics can be used to start and operate the vehicle. Once a key fob is programmed
to a vehicle, it cannot be programmed to any
other vehicle.
To Lock The Doors And Trunk
Push and release the lock button on the key fob
to lock all doors.
WARNING!
The turn signal lights will flash and the horn will
chirp to acknowledge the signal if programmed.
Refer to “Uconnect Settings” in “Multimedia”
in the Owner’s Manual for further programmable
information.
• Always remove the key fobs from the vehicle and lock all doors when leaving the
vehicle unattended.
• For vehicles equipped with Keyless EnterN-Go — Ignition, always remember to
place the ignition in the OFF mode.
NOTE:
To lock the doors with passive entry, Refer to
“Keyless Enter-N-Go — Passive Entry” located
in “Doors” in “Getting To Know Your Vehicle” in
the Owner’s Manual for further information.
Duplication of key fobs may be performed at an
authorized dealer. This procedure consists of
programming a blank key fob to the vehicle
electronics. A blank key fob is one that has
never been programmed.
If one or more doors are open, or the trunk is
open, the doors will lock. The doors will unlock
automatically if the key is left inside the passenger compartment, otherwise the doors will stay
locked.
NOTE:
When having the Sentry Key Immobilizer System serviced, bring all vehicle keys with you to
an authorized dealer.

damage when the system is started again.
Operating Tips
Summer Operation
The engine cooling system must be protected
with a high-quality antifreeze coolant to provide
proper corrosion protection and to protect
against engine overheating. OAT coolant (conforming to MS.90032) is recommended.
Winter Operation
To ensure the best possible heater and defroster
performance, make sure the engine cooling system is functioning properly and the proper
amount, type, and concentration of coolant is
used. Use of the Air Recirculation mode during
Winter months is not recommended, because it
may cause window fogging.
Window Fogging
Vehicle windows tend to fog on the inside in
mild, rainy, and/or humid weather. To clear the
windows, select Defrost or Mix mode and increase the front blower speed. Do not use the
Recirculation mode without A/C for long periods, as fogging may occur.
CAUTION!
Failure to follow these cautions can cause
damage to the heating elements:
• Use care when washing the inside of the
rear window. Do not use abrasive window
cleaners on the interior surface of the
window. Use a soft cloth and a mild
washing solution, wiping parallel to the
CAUTION!
heating elements. Labels can be peeled
off after soaking with warm water.
• Do not use scrapers, sharp instruments,
or abrasive window cleaners on the interior surface of the window.
• Keep all objects a safe distance from the
window.
Outside Air Intake
Make sure the air intake, located directly in
front of the windshield, is free of obstructions,
such as leaves. Leaves collected in the air intake
may reduce airflow, and if they enter the plenum, they could plug the water drains. In Winter
months, make sure the air intake is clear of ice,
slush, and snow.
Cabin Air Filter
The climate control system filters out dust and
pollen from the air. Contact an authorized dealer
to service your cabin air filter, and to have it
replaced when needed.

For efficient programming and accurate transmission of the radio-frequency signal, it is recommended that a new battery be placed in the
hand-held transmitter of the device that is being
programmed to the HomeLink system. Make
sure your hand-held transmitter is programmed
to activate the device you are trying to program
your HomeLink button to.
Ensure that your vehicle is parked outside of the
garage before you begin programming.
It is recommended that you erase all the channels of your HomeLink before you use it for the
first time.
If you have any problems, or require assistance,
please call toll-free 1-800-355-3515 or, on the
Internet at HomeLink.com for information or

Identifying Whether You Have A Rolling
Code Or Non-Rolling Code Device
Programming HomeLink To A Garage Door
Opener
Before programming a device to one of your
HomeLink buttons, you must determine
whether the device has a rolling code or nonrolling code.
To program any of the HomeLink buttons to
activate your garage door opener motor, follow
the steps below:
Rolling Code Devices
To determine if your device has a rolling code, a
good indicator is its manufacturing date. Typically, devices manufactured after 1995 have
rolling codes. A device with a rolling code will
also have a “LEARN” or “TRAIN” button located where the antenna is attached to the
device. The button may not be immediately
visible when looking at the device. The name
and color of the button may vary slightly by
manufacturer.
NOTE:
The “LEARN” or “TRAIN” button is not the
button you normally use to operate the device.
Non-rolling Code Devices
Most devices manufactured before 1995 will
not have a rolling code. These devices will also
not have a “LEARN” or “TRAIN” button.
NOTE:
Make sure the garage door opener motor is
plugged in before moving on to the rolling code/
non-rolling code final steps.
Rolling Code Garage Door Opener Final Steps
NOTE:
All HomeLink buttons are programmed using this
procedure. You do not need to erase all channels
when programming additional buttons.
NOTE:
You have 30 seconds in which to initiate rolling
code final step 2, after completing rolling code
final step 1.
1. Place the ignition switch into the ON/RUN
position.
1. At the garage door opener motor (in the
garage), locate the “LEARN” or “TRAIN”
button. This can usually be found where the
hanging antenna wire is attached to the
garage door opener motor. Firmly push and
release the “LEARN” or “TRAIN” button.
2. Place the garage door opener transmitter
1 to 3 inches (3 to 8 cm) away from the
HomeLink button you wish to program, while
keeping the HomeLink indicator light in
view.
3. Push and hold the HomeLink button you
want to program while you push and hold the
garage door opener transmitter button you
are trying to replicate.
2. Return to the vehicle and push the programmed HomeLink button three times
(holding the button for two seconds each
time). If the garage door opener motor operates, programming is complete.
4. Continue to hold both buttons and observe
the HomeLink indicator light. The
HomeLink indicator light will flash slowly
and then rapidly. Once this happens, release
both buttons.
3. Push the programmed HomeLink button to
confirm that the garage door opener motor
operates. If the garage door opener motor
does not operate, repeat the final steps for
the rolling code procedure.
43
GETTING TO KNOW YOUR VEHICLE
Non-Rolling Code Garage Door Opener Final
Steps
1. Push and hold the programmed HomeLink
button and observe the HomeLink indicator
light. If the HomeLink indicator light stays
on constantly, programming is complete.
2. Push the programmed HomeLink button to
confirm that the garage door opener motor
operates. If the garage door opener motor
does not operate, repeat the steps from the
beginning.
WARNING!
• Your motorized door or gate will open and
close while you are programming the universal transceiver. Do not program the
transceiver if people or pets are in the path
of the door or gate.
• Do not run your vehicle in a closed garage
or confined area while programming the
transceiver. Exhaust gas from your vehicle
contains Carbon Monoxide (CO) which is
odorless and colorless. Carbon Monoxide is
44
WARNING!
poisonous when inhaled and can cause
you and others to be severely injured or
killed.
Programming HomeLink To A
Miscellaneous Device
Refer to “Programming HomeLink To A Garage
Door Opener” for the procedure on how to program HomeLink to a miscellaneous device, as it
follows the same procedure. Be sure to determine if the device has a rolling code, or nonrolling code before beginning the programming
process.
NOTE:
Canadian radio frequency laws require transmitter signals to time-out (or quit) after several
seconds of transmission, which may not be long
enough for HomeLink to pick up the signal
during programming. Similar to this Canadian
law, some U.S. gate operators are designed to
time-out in the same manner. The procedure
may need to be preformed multiple times to
successfully pair the device to your HomeLink
buttons.
Reprogramming A Single HomeLink Button
To reprogram a single HomeLink button that has
been previously trained, without erasing all the
channels, follow the procedure below. Be sure
to determine whether the new device you want
to program the HomeLink button to has a Rolling Code, or Non-rolling Code.
1. Cycle the ignition to the ON/RUN position,
without starting the engine.
2. Push and hold the desired HomeLink button
until the HomeLink Indicator light begins to
flash after 20 seconds. Do not release the
button.
3. Without releasing the button, proceed with
Step 2 in “Programming HomeLink To A
Garage Door Opener” and follow all remaining steps.

driver with a visual indication within the instrument cluster display when the driver configured
gear shift point has been reached and the driver
is still accelerating. This indication notifies the
driver to change gear corresponding to the configured RPMs in the head unit.
WARNING LIGHTS AND MESSAGES
The warning/indicator lights will illuminate in
the instrument panel together with a dedicated
message and/or acoustic signal when applicable. These indications are indicative and precautionary and as such must not be considered
as exhaustive and/or alternative to the information contained in the Owner’s Manual, which
you are advised to read carefully in all cases.
Always refer to the information in this chapter in
the event of a failure indication. All active telltales will display first if applicable. The system
check menu may appear different based upon
equipment options and current vehicle status.
Some telltales are optional and may not appear.
Red Warning Lights
— Seat Belt Reminder Warning Light
This light indicates when the driver or passenger
seat belt is unbuckled. When the ignition is first
placed in the ON/RUN or ACC/ON/RUN position
and if the driver’s seat belt is unbuckled, a
chime will sound and the light will turn on.
When driving, if the driver or front passenger
seat belt remains unbuckled, the Seat Belt
Reminder Light will flash or remain on continuously and a chime will sound.
Refer to “Occupant Restraint Systems” in
“Safety” for further information.
— Air Bag Warning Light
This light indicates a fault with the air bag, and
will turn on for four to eight seconds as a bulb
check when the ignition is placed in the ON/
RUN or ACC/ON/RUN position. This light will
illuminate with a single chime when a fault with
the air bag has been detected, it will stay on
until the fault is cleared. If the light is either not
on during startup, stays on, or turns on while
driving, have the system inspected at an authorized dealer as soon as possible.
— 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.
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.
NOTE:
The light may flash momentarily during sharp
cornering maneuvers, which change fluid level
conditions. The vehicle should have service performed, and the brake fluid level checked.
If brake failure is indicated, immediate repair is
necessary.
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.
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.

53
GETTING TO KNOW YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL
Certain conditions, such as a loose or missing
gas cap, poor quality fuel, etc., may illuminate
the light after engine start. The vehicle should
be serviced if the light stays on through several
typical driving styles. In most situations, the
vehicle will drive normally and will not require
towing.
When the engine is running, the MIL may flash
to alert serious conditions that could lead to
immediate loss of power or severe catalytic
converter damage. The vehicle should be serviced as soon as possible if this occurs.
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.
54
CAUTION!
Prolonged driving with the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) on could cause damage to
the vehicle 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.
— Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
Active Warning Light — If Equipped
This light will indicate when the Electronic Stability Control system is Active. The “ESC Indicator Light” in the instrument cluster will come
on when the ignition is placed in the ON/RUN or
ACC/ON/RUN position, and when ESC is activated. 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), see an authorized dealer as soon as
possible to have the problem diagnosed and
corrected.
• The “ESC Off Indicator Light” and the “ESC
Indicator Light” come on momentarily each
time the ignition is placed in the ON/RUN or
ACC/ON/RUN position.
• The ESC system will make buzzing or clicking
sounds when it is active. This is normal; the
sounds will stop when ESC becomes inactive.
• This light will come on when the vehicle is in
an ESC event.
— Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Off
Warning Light — If Equipped
This light indicates the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) is off.
Each time the ignition is turned to ON/RUN or
ACC/ON/RUN, the ESC system will be on, even
if it was turned off previously.
The ESC OFF indicator will be lit any time the
Traction Mode is set to Sport, Track or Full OFF
in Drive Modes.
— Low Washer Fluid Warning Light —
If Equipped
This warning light will illuminate when the
windshield washer fluid is low.
— Tire Pressure Monitoring System
(TPMS) Warning Light
The warning light switches on and a message is
displayed to indicate that the tire pressure is
lower than the recommended value and/or that
slow pressure loss is occurring. In these cases,
optimal tire duration and fuel consumption may
not be guaranteed.
Should one or more tires be in the condition
mentioned above, the display will show the indications corresponding to each tire in sequence.
CAUTION!
Do not continue driving with one or more flat
tires as handling may be compromised. Stop
the vehicle, avoiding sharp braking and steering. If a tire puncture occurs, repair immediately using the dedicated tire repair kit and
contact your authorized dealer as soon as
possible.
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.
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. 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.
55
GETTING TO KNOW YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL
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. Using aftermarket tire sealants may cause the Tire Pressure Monitoring
System (TPMS) sensor to become inoperable. After using an aftermarket tire sealant it
is recommended that you take your vehicle to
your authorized dealer to have your sensor
function checked.
— Anti-Lock Brake (ABS) Warning
Light
This light monitors the Anti-Lock Brake System
(ABS). The light will turn on when the ignition is
placed in the ON/RUN or ACC/ON/RUN position
and may stay on for as long as four seconds.
If the ABS light remains on or turns on while
driving, then the Anti-Lock portion of the brake
system is not functioning and service is required
56
as soon as possible. However, the conventional
brake system will continue to operate normally,
assuming the Brake Warning Light is not also
on.
If the ABS light does not turn on when the

ONBOARD DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM —
OBD II
Your vehicle is equipped with a sophisticated
Onboard Diagnostic system called OBD II. This
system monitors the performance of the emissions, engine, and transmission control systems. When these systems are operating properly, your vehicle will provide excellent
performance and fuel economy, as well as engine emissions well within current government
regulations.
If any of these systems require service, the OBD
II system will turn on the Malfunction Indicator
Light (MIL). It will also store diagnostic codes
and other information to assist your service
technician in making repairs. Although your
vehicle will usually be drivable and not need
towing, see an authorized dealer for service as
soon as possible.
CAUTION!
• Prolonged driving with the MIL on could
cause further damage to the emission control system. It could also affect fuel
economy and driveability. The vehicle
must be serviced before any emissions
tests can be performed.
• If the MIL is flashing while the vehicle is
running, severe catalytic converter damage and power loss will soon occur. Immediate service is required.
Onboard Diagnostic System (OBD II)
Cybersecurity
Your vehicle is required to have an Onboard
Diagnostic system (OBD II) and a connection
port to allow access to information related to the
performance of your emissions controls. Authorized service technicians may need to access
this information to assist with the diagnosis and
service of your vehicle and emissions system.
WARNING!
• Access, or allow others to access, information stored in your vehicle systems, including personal information.
For further information, refer to “Cybersecurity”
in “Multimedia”.
WARNING!
• ONLY an authorized service technician
should connect equipment to the OBD II
connection port in order to read the VIN,
diagnose, or service your vehicle.
• If unauthorized equipment is connected to
the OBD II connection port, such as a
driver-behavior tracking device, it may:
• Be possible that vehicle systems, including safety related systems, could
be impaired or a loss of vehicle control
could occur that may result in an accident involving serious injury or
death.

SAFETY
AUXILIARY DRIVING SYSTEMS
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. Refer to “Modes
Of Operation” for further information.
Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) —
If Equipped
The Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) system uses
two radar 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 detection zone covers approximately
one lane width on both sides of the vehicle 12 ft
(3.8 m). The zone length starts at the outside
rear view mirror and extends approximately
10 ft (3 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.
Rear Detection Zones
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.
Automatic Transmission Vehicles
The BSM system sensors operate when the
vehicle is in any forward gear or REVERSE.
Manual Transmission Vehicles
The BSM system sensors operate when the
vehicle is in any gear.
62
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.
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 vehicle’s
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 — If Equipped
The Rear Cross Path (RCP) feature is intended
to aid the drivers 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 3 mph (5 km/h), to
objects moving a maximum of approximately
20 mph (32 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 alerts, including reducing the radio volume so that the alert can be better heard.
WARNING!
Rear Cross Path Detection (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.
Modes Of Operation
Three selectable modes of operation are available in the Uconnect System. Refer to
“Uconnect Settings/Customer Programmable
Features” in “Multimedia” in your Owner’s
Manual 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 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 volume is
reduced so that the alert can be better heard.
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
audio alerts will be issued. In addition to the
audible alert the radio (if on) volume will be
reduced so that the alert can be better heard.
When the system is in RCP, the system shall
respond with both visual and audible alerts
when a detected object is present. Whenever an
63
SAFETY
audible alert is requested, the radio volume is
reduced so that the alert can be better heard.
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.
General Information
The following regulatory statement applies to all
Radio Frequency (RF) devices equipped in this
vehicle:
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC
Rules and with Industry Canada license-exempt
RSS standard(s). Operation is subject to the
following two conditions:
1. This device may not cause harmful
interference.
2. This device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may
cause undesired operation.
64
NOTE:
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance
could void the user’s authority to operate the
equipment.
Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
Operation
The Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system
provides the driver with audible warnings, visual
warnings (within the instrument cluster display), 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 Stability Control (ESC) System, 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.
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.
Turning FCW On Or Off
The Forward Collision activation/deactivation is
located in "Uconnect Settings" under "Safety
And Driving Assistance.” Forward Collision can
be checked or unchecked.
When FCW is selected off, there will be an "FCW
OFF" icon that appears in the instrument cluster
display.
NOTE:
SRT Models:
The FCW system’s default state is on. If the
system is turned off followed by the ignition
being turned to OFF, the FCW system will reset
to on when the vehicle’s engine is restarted.
NOTE:
Base Models:
• The FCW system’s default state is on. If the
system is turned off followed by the ignition
being turned to OFF, the FCW system will reset
to on when the vehicle’s engine is restarted.
• FCW system is temporarily turned off when
ESC Full-Off Mode is active.
Changing FCW Status
The default status of FCW is the “Far” setting in
the “On” setting. This allows the system to warn
the driver of a possible collision with the vehicle
in front using an audible and visual warning
when the other vehicle is at a farther distance
than the “Medium” setting and will apply active
braking.
Changing the FCW status to the “Near” setting,
allows the system to warn you of a possible
collision with the vehicle in front of you when
you are much closer. This setting provides less
reaction time than the “Medium” and “Far”
setting, which allows for a more dynamic driving
experience.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
The Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) will
warn the driver of a low tire pressure based on
the vehicle recommended cold placard pressure.
The tire pressure will vary with temperature by
about 1 psi (7 kPa) for every 12°F (6.5°C). This
means that when the outside temperature decreases, the tire pressure will decrease. Tire
pressure should always be set based on cold
inflation tire pressure. This is defined as the tire
pressure after the vehicle has not been driven
for at least three hours, or driven less than
1 mile (1.6 km) after a three hour period. The
cold tire inflation pressure must not exceed the
maximum inflation pressure molded into the
tire sidewall. Refer to “Tires” in “Servicing And
Maintenance” for information on how to properly inflate the vehicle’s tires. The tire pressure
will also increase as the vehicle is driven - this is
normal and there should be no adjustment for
this increased pressure.
The TPMS will warn the driver of a low tire
pressure if the tire pressure falls below the
low-pressure warning limit for any reason, including low temperature effects and natural
pressure loss through the tire.
The TPMS will continue to warn the driver of low
tire pressure as long as the condition exists, and
will not turn off until the tire pressure is at or
above the recommended cold placard pressure.
65
SAFETY
Once the low tire pressure warning (Tire Pressure Monitoring [TPM] Telltale Light) illuminates, you must increase the tire pressure to the
recommended cold placard pressure in order for
the TPM Telltale Light to turn off. The system
will automatically update and the TPM Telltale
Light will turn off once the system receives the
updated tire pressures. The vehicle may need to
be driven for up to 20 minutes above 15 mph
(24 km/h) in order for the TPMS to receive this
information.
NOTE:
When filling warm tires, the tire pressure may
need to be increased up to an additional 4 psi
(28 kPa) above the recommended cold placard
pressure in order to turn the Tire Pressure Monitoring Telltale Light off.
For example, your vehicle may have a recommended cold (parked for more than three hours)
placard pressure of 30 psi (207 kPa). If the
ambient temperature is 68°F (20°C) and the
measured tire pressure is 27 psi (186 kPa), a
temperature drop to 20°F (-7°C) will decrease
the tire pressure to approximately 23 psi
(158 kPa). This tire pressure is sufficiently low
enough to turn on the TPM Telltale Light. Driv-
66
ing the vehicle may cause the tire pressure to
rise to approximately 27 psi (186 kPa), but the
TPM Telltale Light will still be on. In this situation, the TPM Telltale Light will turn off only
after the tires are inflated to the vehicle’s recommended cold placard pressure value.
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. The
TPM sensor is not designed for use on
aftermarket wheels and may contribute to
a poor overall system performance or sensor damage. Customers are encouraged to
use OEM wheels to assure proper TPM
feature operation.
• Using aftermarket tire sealants may cause
the Tire Pressure Monitoring System
(TPMS) sensor to become inoperable. After using an aftermarket tire sealant it is
CAUTION!
recommended that you take your vehicle to
your authorized dealer to have your sensor
function checked.
• After inspecting or adjusting the tire pressure always reinstall the valve stem cap.
This will prevent moisture and dirt from
entering the valve stem, which could damage the TPMS sensor.
NOTE:
• The TPMS is not intended to replace normal
tire care and maintenance or to provide warning of a tire failure or condition.
• The TPMS should not be used as a tire pressure gauge while adjusting your tire 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.
• The TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire
maintenance, and it is the driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure using an
accurate tire pressure gauge, even if underinflation has not reached the level to trigger
illumination of the TPM Telltale Light.
• Seasonal temperature changes will affect tire
pressure, and the TPMS will monitor the actual tire pressure in the tire.
Premium System
The Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) uses
wireless technology with wheel rim mounted
electronic sensors to monitor tire pressure levels. Sensors, mounted to each wheel as part of
the valve stem, transmit tire pressure readings
to the receiver module.
NOTE:
It is particularly important for you to check the
tire pressure in all of the tires on your vehicle
monthly and to maintain the proper pressure.
The TPMS consists of the following components:
• Receiver module
• Four tire pressure monitoring sensors
• Various tire pressure monitoring system messages, which display in the instrument cluster
• Tire pressure monitoring telltale light
Tire Pressure Monitoring Low Pressure Warnings
The “Tire Pressure Monitoring Telltale Light” will illuminate in the
instrument cluster and a chime
will sound when tire pressure is
low in one or more of the four
active road tires. In addition, the instrument
cluster will display an “Inflate to XX” message
and a graphic showing the pressure values of
each tire with the low tire pressure values shown
in a different color.
Tire Pressure Monitor Display
Should this occur, you should stop as soon as
possible and inflate the tires with a low pressure
condition (those shown in a different color in the
instrument cluster graphic) to the vehicle’s recommended cold placard pressure inflation
value as shown in the “Inflate to XX” message.
Once the system receives the updated tire pressures, the system will automatically update, the
graphic display in the instrument cluster will
change color back to the original color, and the
TPM Telltale Light will turn off. The vehicle may
67
SAFETY
need to be driven for up to 20 minutes above
15 mph (24 km/h) in order for the TPMS to
receive this information.
NOTE:
When filling warm tires, the tire pressure may
need to be increased up to an additional 4 psi
(28 kPa) above the recommended cold placard
pressure in order to turn the Tire Pressure Monitoring Telltale Light off.
Service Tire Pressure System Warning
• Using tire chains on the vehicle.
If a system fault is detected, the TPM Telltale
Light will flash on and off for 75 seconds and
then remain on solid. The system fault will also
sound a chime. In addition, the instrument
cluster will display a "Service Tire Pressure System" message for a minimum of five seconds
and then display dashes (- -) in place of the
pressure value to indicate which sensor is not
being received.
• Using wheels/tires not equipped with TPM
sensors.
If the ignition switch is cycled, this sequence
will repeat, providing the system fault still exists. If the system fault no longer exists, the
TPM Telltale Light will no longer flash, and the
"Service Tire Pressure System" message will no
longer display, and a pressure value will display
in place of the dashes. A system fault can occur
due to any of the following:
• Signal interference due to electronic devices
or driving next to facilities emitting the same
radio frequencies as the TPM sensors.
Low Tire Pressure Monitor Display
• Installing aftermarket window tinting that
contains materials that may block radio wave
signals.
• Accumulation of snow or ice around the
wheels or wheel housings.
68
Vehicles With Compact Spare
1. The compact spare tire or non-matching full
size does not have a tire pressure monitoring
sensor. Therefore, the TPMS will not monitor
the pressure in the compact spare tire.
2. If you install the compact or non-matching
full size spare tire in place of a road tire that
has a pressure below the low-pressure warning limit, upon the next ignition key cycle,
the “TPMS Telltale Light” will remain on and
a chime will sound. In addition, the graphic
in the instrument cluster will still display a
different color pressure value and an "Inflate
to XX" message.
3. After driving the vehicle for up to 20 minutes
above 15 mph (24 km/h), the “TPMS Telltale Light” will flash on and off for 75 seconds and then remain on solid. In addition,
the instrument cluster will display a “Service
Tire Pressure System” message for five seconds and then display dashes (- -) in place of
the pressure value.
4. For each subsequent ignition key cycle, a
chime will sound, the “TPMS Telltale Light”
will flash on and off for 75 seconds and then
remain on solid, and the instrument cluster
will display a “Service Tire Pressure System”
message for five seconds and then display
dashes (- -) in place of the pressure value.
5. Once you repair or replace the original road
tire and reinstall it on the vehicle in place of
the compact spare or non-matching full size,
the TPMS will update automatically. In addition, the “TPMS Telltale Light” will turn off
and the graphic in the instrument cluster will
display a new pressure value instead of
dashes (- -), as long as no tire pressure is
below the low-pressure warning limit in any
of the four active road tires. The vehicle may
need to be driven for up to 20 minutes above
15 mph (24 km/h) in order for the TPMS to
receive this information.
TPMS Deactivation — If Equipped
The TPMS can be deactivated if replacing all
four wheel and tire assemblies (road tires) with
wheel and tire assemblies that do not have
TPMS Sensors, such as when installing winter
wheel and tire assemblies on your vehicle.
To deactivate the TPMS, first replace all four
wheel and tire assemblies (road tires) with tires
not equipped with Tire Pressure Monitoring
(TPM) Sensors. Then, drive the vehicle for
20 minutes above 15 mph (24 km/h). The
TPMS will chime, the "TPM Telltale Light" will
flash on and off for 75 seconds and then remain
on. The instrument cluster will display the “Service Tire Pressure System” message and then
display dashes (--) in place of the pressure
values.
Beginning with the next ignition cycle, the
TPMS will no longer chime or display the “Service Tire Pressure System” message in the instrument cluster but dashes (--) will remain in
place of the pressure values.
To reactivate the TPMS, replace all four wheel
and tire assemblies (road tires) with tires
equipped with TPM sensors. Then, drive the
vehicle for up to 20 minutes above 15 mph
(24 km/h). The TPMS will chime, the "TPM
Telltale Light" will flash on and off for 75 seconds and then turn off. The instrument cluster
will display the “Service Tire Pressure System”
message and then display pressure values in
place of the dashes. On the next ignition cycle
the "Service Tire Pressure System" message will
no longer be displayed as long as no system
fault exists.

SAFETY
OCCUPANT RESTRAINT SYSTEMS
Some of the most important safety features in
your vehicle are the restraint systems:
Occupant Restraint Systems Features
• Seat Belt Systems
• Supplemental Restraint Systems (SRS) Air
Bags
• Child Restraints
Some of the safety features described in this
section may be standard equipment on some
models, or may be optional equipment on others. If you are not sure, ask an authorized dealer.
Important Safety Precautions
Please pay close attention to the information in
this section. It tells you how to use your restraint
system properly, to keep you and your passengers as safe as possible.
Here are some simple steps you can take to
minimize the risk of harm from a deploying air
bag:
1. Children 12 years old and under should
always ride buckled up in the rear seat of a
vehicle with a rear seat.
5. You should read the instructions provided
with your child restraint to make sure that
you are using it properly.
If your vehicle is not equipped with a rear
seat, FCA recommends that you do not
allow children 12 years old and under to
ride in your vehicle.
6. All occupants should always wear their lap
and shoulder belts properly.
2. If a child from 2 to 12 years old (not in a
rear-facing child restraint) must ride in the
front passenger seat, move the seat as far
back as possible and use the proper child
restraint (refer to “Child Restraints” in this
section for further information).
3. Children that are not big enough to wear the
vehicle seat belt properly (refer to “Child
Restraints” in this section for further information) should be secured in the rear seat of
a vehicle with a rear seat in child restraints or
belt-positioning booster seats. Older children who do not use child restraints or beltpositioning booster seats should ride properly buckled up in the rear seat of a vehicle
with a rear seat.
4. Never allow children to slide the shoulder
belt behind them or under their arm.
70
7. The driver and front passenger seats should
be moved back as far as practical to allow
the front air bags room to inflate.
8. Do not lean against the door or window. If
your vehicle has side air bags, and deployment occurs, the side air bags will inflate
forcefully into the space between occupants
and the door and occupants could be
injured.
9. If the air bag system in this vehicle needs to
be modified to accommodate a disabled
person, refer to the “Customer Assistance”
section for customer service contact
information.
WARNING!
• Never place a rear-facing child restraint in
front of an air bag. A deploying passenger
front air bag can cause death or serious
WARNING!
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 the
rear seat of a vehicle with a rear seat.
Seat Belt Systems
Buckle up even though you are an excellent
driver, even on short trips. Someone on the road
may be a poor driver and could cause a collision
that includes you. This can happen far away
from home or on your own street.
Research has shown that seat belts save lives,
and they can reduce the seriousness of injuries
in a collision. Some of the worst injuries happen
when people are thrown from the vehicle. Seat
belts reduce the possibility of ejection and the
risk of injury caused by striking the inside of the
vehicle. Everyone in a motor vehicle should be
belted at all times.
Vehicles Without Passenger Seating Installed
If your vehicle does not have a factory installed
front passenger seat and/or rear passenger
seats, the features described in this section may
not be available in your vehicle.
This vehicle has been designed to maximize
total performance. In doing so, the audio system, and deletion of passenger seats may affect
the NVH (Noise, Vibration, and Harshness)
characteristics. As a result, the interior (driver
cockpit) Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH)
will be louder overall. The audio system and lack
of passenger seats may affect the NVH characteristics. The standard vehicle comes equipped
with a two speaker audio system but there is an
optional premium audio system available. Furthermore, the rear seats and seat belt system
are deleted and the front passenger seat and
seat belt system may be deleted to increase
vehicle performance.
WARNING!
• If the passenger and/or rear seats have
been removed do not ride in those areas. In
a collision, people riding in these areas are
more likely to be seriously injured or killed.
• If this vehicle was not factory equipped
with a passenger seat, NEVER attempt to
install a passenger seat because the safety
systems, including the air bags and seatbelt, may not properly protect you.
• It is dangerous to ride in a cargo area,
inside or outside of a vehicle. In a collision,
people riding in these areas are more likely
to be seriously injured or killed.
• Only ride in available seating positions
equipped with seat belt systems. Always
properly wear your seat belt. Failure to do
so could result in an increased risk of
serious injury or death in the event of an
accident.
• Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat
and using a seat belt properly. Occupants,
including the driver, should always wear
their seat belts whether or not an air bag is
also provided at their seating positions to
71
SAFETY
WARNING!
minimize the risk of severe injury or death
in the event of a crash.
• All occupants, including the driver, should
not operate a vehicle or sit in a vehicle’s
seat if the head restraints are not in place
of their proper positions in order to minimize the risk of neck injury in the event of
a crash.
• 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.
Enhanced Seat Belt Use Reminder System
(BeltAlert)
Driver and Passenger BeltAlert (if equipped)
BeltAlert is a feature intended to remind the
driver and outboard front seat passenger (if
equipped with outboard front passenger seat
BeltAlert) to buckle their seat belts. The Belt
Alert feature is active whenever the ignition
switch is in the START or ON/RUN position.
72
Initial Indication
If the driver is unbuckled when the ignition
switch is first in the START or ON/RUN position,
a chime will signal for a few seconds. If the
driver or outboard front seat passenger (if
equipped with outboard front passenger seat
BeltAlert) is unbuckled when the ignition switch
is first in the START or ON/RUN position the
Seat Belt Reminder Light will turn on and remain on until both outboard front seat belts are
buckled. The outboard front passenger seat
BeltAlert is not active when an outboard front
passenger seat is unoccupied.
BeltAlert Warning Sequence
The BeltAlert warning sequence is activated
when the vehicle is moving above a specified
vehicle speed range and the driver or outboard
front seat passenger is unbuckled (if equipped
with outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert)
(the outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert is
not active when the outboard front passenger
seat is unoccupied). The BeltAlert warning sequence starts by blinking the Seat Belt Reminder Light and sounding an intermittent
chime. Once the BeltAlert warning sequence
has completed, the Seat Belt Reminder Light
will remain on until the seat belts are buckled.
The BeltAlert warning sequence may repeat
based on vehicle speed until the driver and
occupied outboard front seat passenger seat
belts are buckled. The driver should instruct all
occupants to buckle their seat belts.
Change of Status
If the driver or outboard front seat passenger (if
equipped with outboard front passenger seat
BeltAlert) unbuckles their seat belt while the
vehicle is traveling, the BeltAlert warning sequence will begin until the seat belts are buckled again.
The outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert is
not active when the outboard front passenger
seat is unoccupied. BeltAlert may be triggered
when an animal or other items are placed on the
outboard front passenger seat or when the seat
is folded flat (if equipped). It is recommended
that pets be restrained in the rear seat (if
equipped) in pet harnesses or pet carriers that
are secured by seat belts, and cargo is properly
stowed.
BeltAlert can be activated or deactivated by an
authorized dealer. FCA US LLC does not recommend deactivating BeltAlert.
NOTE:
If BeltAlert has been deactivated and the driver
or outboard front seat passenger (if equipped
with outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert) is
unbuckled the Seat Belt Reminder Light will
turn on and remain on until the driver and
outboard front seat passenger seat belts are
buckled.
Lap/Shoulder Belts
All seating positions in your vehicle are
equipped with lap/shoulder belts.
The seat belt webbing retractor will lock only
during very sudden stops or collisions. This
feature allows the shoulder part of the seat belt
to move freely with you under normal conditions. However, in a collision the seat belt will
lock and reduce your risk of striking the inside of
the vehicle or being thrown out of the vehicle.
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 belt even though you have air bags.
• 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.
• It is dangerous to ride in a cargo area,
inside or outside of a vehicle. In a collision,
people riding in these areas are more likely
to be seriously injured or killed.
• Do not allow people to ride in any area of
your vehicle that is not equipped with seats
and seat belts.
• Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat
and using a seat belt properly. Occupants,
including the driver, should always wear
their seat belts whether or not an air bag is
WARNING!
also provided at their seating position to
minimize the risk of severe injury or death
in the event of a crash.
• Wearing your seat belt incorrectly could
make your injuries in a collision much
worse. You might suffer internal injuries, or
you could even slide out of the seat belt.
Follow these instructions to wear your seat
belt safely and to keep your passengers
safe, too.
• Two people should never be belted into a
single seat belt. People belted together
can crash into one another in a collision,
hurting one another badly. Never use a
lap/shoulder belt or a lap belt for more than
one person, no matter what their size.
WARNING!
• A lap belt worn too high can increase the
risk of injury in a collision. The seat belt
forces won’t be at the strong hip and pelvic
bones, but across your abdomen. Always
wear the lap part of your seat belt as low as
possible and keep it snug.
73
SAFETY
WARNING!
WARNING!
• A twisted seat belt may not protect you
properly. In a collision, it could even cut
into you. Be sure the seat belt is flat
against your body, without twists. If you
can’t straighten a seat belt in your vehicle,
take it to an authorized dealer immediately
and have it fixed.
• A seat belt that is buckled into the wrong
buckle will not protect you properly. The
lap portion could ride too high on your
body, possibly causing internal injuries.
Always buckle your seat belt into the
buckle nearest you.
• 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 seat belt that is worn under your arm is
dangerous. Your body could strike the inside surfaces of the vehicle in a collision,
increasing head and neck injury. A seat
belt worn under the arm can cause internal
injuries. Ribs aren’t as strong as shoulder
bones. Wear the seat belt over your shoul-
der so that your strongest bones will take
the force in a collision.
• 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 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 seat belt system. Seat belt
assemblies must be replaced after a collision.

Lap/Shoulder Belt Operating Instructions
1. Enter the vehicle and close the door. Sit
back and adjust the seat.
2. The seat belt latch plate is above the back of
the front seat, and next to your arm in the
rear seat (for vehicles equipped with a rear
seat). Grasp the latch plate and pull out the
seat belt. Slide the latch plate up the webbing as far as necessary to allow the seat belt
to go around your lap.
Pulling Out The Latch Plate
1 — Seat Belt Buckle
2 — Seat Belt
5. 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.
6. To release the seat belt, push the red button
on the buckle. The seat belt will automatically retract to its stowed position. If necessary, slide the latch plate down the webbing
to allow the seat belt to retract fully.
Lap/Shoulder Belt Untwisting Procedure
Inserting Latch Plate Into Buckle
3. When the seat belt is long enough to fit,
insert the latch plate into the buckle until
you hear a “click.”
4. 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.
Use the following procedure to untwist a twisted
lap/shoulder belt.
1. Position the latch plate as close as possible
to the anchor point.
2. At about 6 to 12 inches (15 to 30 cm) above
the latch plate, grasp and twist the seat belt
webbing 180 degrees to create a fold that
begins immediately above the latch plate.
3. Slide the latch plate upward over the folded
webbing. The folded webbing must enter the
slot at the top of the latch plate.
4. Continue to slide the latch plate up until it
clears the folded webbing and the seat belt
is no longer twisted.
Seat Belt Extender
If a seat belt is not long enough to fit properly,
even when the webbing is fully extended and
the adjustable upper shoulder belt anchorage (if
equipped) is in its lowest position, an authorized dealer can provide you with a Seat Belt
Extender. The Seat Belt Extender should be
used only if the existing seat belt is not long
enough. When the Seat Belt Extender is not
required for a different occupant, it must be
removed.
WARNING!
• ONLY use a Seat Belt Extender if it is
physically required in order to properly fit
the original seat belt system. DO NOT USE
the Seat Belt Extender if, when worn, the
distance between the front edge of the
Seat Belt Extender buckle and the center
of the occupant’s body is LESS than
6 inches.
75
SAFETY
WARNING!
• Using a Seat Belt Extender when not
needed can increase the risk of serious
injury or death in a collision. Only use the
Seat Belt Extender when the lap belt is not
long enough and only use in the recommended seating positions. Remove and
store the Seat Belt Extender when not
needed.
Seat Belts And Pregnant Women
Seat belts must be worn by all occupants including pregnant women: the risk of injury in
the event of an accident is reduced for the
mother and the unborn child if they are wearing
a seat belt.
The pretensioners are triggered by the Occupant
Restraint Controller (ORC). Like the air bags,
the pretensioners are single use items. A deployed pretensioner or a deployed air bag must
be replaced immediately.
Position the lap belt snug and low below the
abdomen and across the strong bones of the
hips. Place the shoulder belt across the chest
and away from the neck. Never place the shoulder belt behind the back or under the arm.
Energy Management Feature
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. These devices may improve the performance of the seat belt by removing slack from
the seat belt early in a collision. Pretensioners
work for all size occupants, including those in
child restraints.
Pregnant Women And Seat Belts
76
NOTE:
These devices are not a substitute for proper
seat belt placement by the occupant. The seat
belt still must be worn snugly and positioned
properly.
The front seat belt system is equipped with an
Energy Management feature that may help further reduce the risk of injury in the event of a
collision. The seat belt system has a retractor
assembly that is designed to release webbing in
a controlled manner.
Switchable Automatic Locking Retractors
(ALR)
The seat belts in the passenger seating positions are equipped with a Switchable Automatic
Locking Retractor (ALR) which is used to secure
a child restraint system. For additional information, refer to “Installing Child Restraints Using
The Vehicle Seat Belt” under the “Child Restraints” section of this manual. The figure
below illustrates the locking feature for each
seating position.

In Automatic Locking Mode, the shoulder belt is
automatically pre-locked. The seat belt will still
retract to remove any slack in the shoulder belt.
Use the Automatic Locking Mode anytime a
child restraint is installed in a seating position
that has a seat belt with this feature. Children
12 years old and under should always be properly restrained in the rear seat of a vehicle with a
rear seat.

SAFETY
How To Engage The Automatic Locking Mode
1. Buckle the combination lap and shoulder
belt.
2. Grasp the shoulder portion and pull downward until the entire seat belt is extracted.
3. Allow the seat belt to retract. As the seat belt
retracts, you will hear a clicking sound. This
indicates the seat belt is now in the Automatic Locking Mode.
How To Disengage The Automatic Locking Mode
Unbuckle the combination lap/shoulder belt
and allow it to retract completely to disengage
the Automatic Locking Mode and activate the
vehicle sensitive (emergency) locking mode.
WARNING!
• The seat belt assembly must be replaced if
the switchable Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) feature or any other seat belt
function is not working properly when
checked according to the procedures in
the Service Manual.
78
WARNING!
• Failure to replace the seat belt assembly
could increase the risk of injury in collisions.
• Do not use the Automatic Locking Mode to
restrain occupants who are wearing the
seat belt or children who are using booster
seats. The locked mode is only used to
install rear-facing or forward-facing child
restraints that have a harness for restraining the child.
Supplemental Restraint Systems (SRS)
All passenger occupants within the vehicle
must be in a seat equipped with a Seat Belt
System and Head Restraint for the safety of the
passenger. If the passenger and/or rear seats
have been removed do not ride in those areas.
Some of the safety features described in this
section may be standard equipment on some
models, or may be optional equipment on others. If you are not sure, ask your authorized
dealer.
The air bag system must be ready to protect you
in a collision. The Occupant Restraint Controller
(ORC) monitors the internal circuits and interconnecting wiring associated with the electrical
Air Bag System Components. Your vehicle may
be equipped with the following Air Bag System
Components:
Air Bag System Components
• Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC)
• Air Bag Warning Light
• Steering Wheel and Column
• Instrument Panel
• Knee Impact Bolsters
• Driver and Front Passenger Air Bags
• Seat Belt Buckle Switch
• Supplemental Side Air Bags
• Front and Side Impact Sensors
• Seat Belt Pretensioners
• Seat Track Position Sensors
NOTE:
Vehicles with front passenger seat deleted will
not be equipped with the Seat Belt Buckle
Switch, Seat Belt Pretensioner, Supplemental
Seat Mounted Side Airbag, and Seat Track Position Sensors for the front passenger.
All passenger occupants within the vehicle
must be in a seat equipped with a Seat Belt
System and Head Restraint for the safety of the
passenger. If the passenger and/or rear seats
have been removed do not ride in those areas.
Air Bag Warning Light
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 contains a backup power supply system that may deploy the air bag system even if
the battery loses power or it becomes disconnected prior to deployment.
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 in 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.
The ORC also includes diagnostics that will
illuminate the instrument panel Air Bag Warning Light if a malfunction is detected that could
affect the air bag system. The diagnostics also
record the nature of the malfunction. While the
air bag system is designed to be maintenance
free, if any of the following occurs, have an
authorized dealer service the air bag system
immediately.
• The Air Bag Warning Light does not come on
during the four to eight seconds when the
ignition switch is first in the ON/RUN position.
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.
WARNING!
Ignoring the Air Bag Warning Light in your
instrument panel could mean you won’t have
the air bag system to protect you in a collision. If the light does not come on as a bulb
check when the ignition is first turned on,
stays on after you start the vehicle, or if it
comes on as you drive, have an authorized
dealer service the air bag system immediately.
• The Air Bag Warning Light remains on after
the four to eight-second interval.
Redundant Air Bag Warning Light
• The Air Bag Warning Light comes on intermittently or remains on while driving.
If a fault with the Air Bag Warning Light is
detected, which could affect the Supplemental
Restraint System (SRS), the Redundant Air Bag
Warning Light will illuminate on the instrument
79
SAFETY
panel. The Redundant Air Bag Warning Light
will stay on until the fault is cleared. In addition,
a single chime will sound to alert you that the
Redundant Air Bag Warning Light has come on
and a fault has been detected. If the Redundant
Air Bag Warning Light comes on intermittently
or remains on while driving have an authorized
dealer service the vehicle immediately.
WARNING!
cluding death. Air bags need room to inflate. Sit back, comfortably extending your
arms to reach the steering wheel or instrument panel.
• Never place a rear-facing child restraint in
front of an air bag. A deploying passenger
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 the
rear seat of a vehicle with a rear seat.
For additional information regarding the Redundant Air Bag Warning Light refer to “Getting To
Know Your Instrument Panel” section of this
manual.
Front Air Bags
This vehicle has front air bags and lap/shoulder
belts for both the driver and front passenger.
The front air bags are a supplement to the seat
belt restraint systems. The driver front air bag is
mounted in the center of the steering wheel.
The passenger front air bag is mounted in the
instrument panel, above the glove compartment. The words “SRS AIRBAG” or “AIRBAG”
are embossed on the air bag covers.

Driver And Passenger Front Air Bag Features
The Advanced Front Air Bag system has multistage driver and front passenger air bags. This
system provides output appropriate to the severity and type of collision as determined by the
Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC), which
may receive information from the front impact
sensors (if equipped) or other system components.
The first stage inflator is triggered immediately
during an impact that requires air bag deployment. A low energy output is used in less severe
collisions. A higher energy output is used for
more severe collisions.
This vehicle may be equipped with a driver
and/or front passenger seat belt buckle switch
that detects whether the driver or front passenger seat belt is buckled. The seat belt buckle
switch may adjust the inflation rate of the Advanced Front Air Bags.
This vehicle may be equipped with driver and/or
front passenger seat track position sensors that
may adjust the inflation rate of the Advanced
Front Air Bags based upon seat position.
WARNING!
• 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.
• Do not put anything on or around the air
bag covers or attempt to open them manu-
WARNING!
ally. You may damage the air bags and you
could be injured because the air bags may
no longer be functional. The protective
covers for the air bag cushions are designed to open only when the air bags are
inflating.
• 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, air bags
won’t deploy at all. Always wear your seat
belts even though you have air bags.
Front Air Bag Operation
Front Air Bags are designed to provide additional protection by supplementing the seat
belts. Front air bags are not expected to reduce
the risk of injury in rear, side, or rollover collisions. The 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, 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.
When the ORC detects a collision requiring the
front air bags, it signals the inflator units. A
large quantity of non-toxic gas is generated to
inflate the front air bags.
The steering wheel hub trim cover and the upper
passenger side of the instrument panel separate
and fold out of the way as the air bags inflate to
their full size. The front air bags fully inflate in
less time than it takes to blink your eyes. The
front air bags then quickly deflate while helping
to restrain the driver and front passenger.
81
SAFETY
Knee Impact Bolsters
The Knee Impact Bolsters help protect the
knees of the driver and front passenger, and
position the front occupants for improved interaction with the front air bags.
The SABs may help to reduce the risk of occupant injury during certain side impacts, in addition to the injury reduction potential provided
by the seat belts and body structure.
WARNING!
WARNING!
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.
• Do not drill, cut, or tamper with the knee
impact bolsters in any way.
• Do not mount any accessories to the knee
impact bolsters such as alarm lights, stereos, citizen band radios, etc.
Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtains
(SABICs)
Supplemental Side Air Bags
This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental
Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtains (SABICs).
Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Air Bags (SABs)
This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental
Seat-Mounted Side Air Bags (SABs).
Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Air Bags

events.
WARNING!
Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable
Curtain (SABIC) Label Location
SABICs may help reduce the risk of head and
other injuries to front and rear seat outboard
occupants in certain side impacts, in addition to
the injury reduction potential provided by the
seat belts and body structure.
The SABIC deploys downward, covering the side
windows. An inflating SABIC pushes the outside edge of the headliner out of the way and
covers the window. The SABICs inflate with
enough force to injure occupants if they are not
• Do not mount equipment, or 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.
• 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.
Side Impacts
The Side Air Bags are designed to activate in
certain side impacts. The Occupant Restraint
Controller (ORC) determines whether the deployment of the Side Air Bags in a particular
impact event is appropriate, based on the severity and type of collision. The side impact sensors
aid the ORC in determining the appropriate
response to impact events. The system is calibrated to deploy the Side Air Bags on the impact
side of the vehicle during impacts that require
Side Air Bag occupant protection. In side impacts, the Side Air Bags deploy independently;
a left side impact deploys the left Side Air Bags
only and a right-side impact deploys the right
Side Air Bags only. Vehicle damage by itself is
not a good indicator of whether or not Side Air
Bags should have deployed.
The Side Air Bags will not deploy in all side
collisions, including some collisions at certain
angles, or some side collisions that do not impact the area of the passenger compartment.
The Side Air Bags may deploy during angled or
offset frontal collisions where the front air bags
deploy.
83
SAFETY
Side Air Bags are a supplement to the seat belt
restraint system. Side Air Bags deploy in less
time than it takes to blink your eyes.
WARNING!
• Occupants, including children, who are up
against or very close to Side Air Bags can
be seriously injured or killed. Occupants,
including children, should never lean on or
sleep against the door, side windows, or
area where the side air bags inflate, even if
they are in an infant or child restraint.
• Seat belts (and child restraints where appropriate) are necessary for your protection
in all collisions. They also help keep you in
position, away from an inflating Side Air
Bag. To get the best protection from the
Side Air Bags, occupants must wear their
seat belts properly and sit upright with
their backs against the seats. Children
must be properly restrained in a child restraint or booster seat that is appropriate
for the size of the child.
84
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.
NOTE:
Air bag covers may not be obvious in the interior
trim, but they will open during air bag deployment.
Rollover Events
Side Air Bags are designed to activate in certain
rollover events. The ORC determines whether
the deployment of the Side Air Bags in a particular 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.
The Side Air Bags will not deploy in all rollover
events. The rollover sensing system determines
if a rollover event may be in progress and
whether deployment is appropriate. In the event
the vehicle experiences a rollover or near rollover event, and deployment of the Side Air Bags
is appropriate, the rollover sensing system will
also deploy the seat belt pretensioners on both
sides of the vehicle.
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.
Air Bag System Components
NOTE:
The Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) monitors the internal circuits and interconnecting
wiring associated with electrical Air Bag System
Components listed below:
• Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC)
• Air Bag Warning Light
• Steering Wheel and Column
• Instrument Panel
Switch, Seat Belt Pretensioner, Supplemental
Seat Mounted Side Airbag, and Seat Track Position Sensors for the front passenger.
All passenger occupants within the vehicle
must be in a seat equipped with a Seat Belt
System and Head Restraint for the safety of the
passenger. If the passenger and/or rear seats
have been removed do not ride in those areas.
If A Deployment Occurs
The front air bags are designed to deflate immediately after deployment.
• Knee Impact Bolsters
• Driver and Front Passenger Air Bags
• Seat Belt Buckle Switch
• Supplemental Side Air Bags
• Front and Side Impact Sensors
• Seat Belt Pretensioners
• Seat Track Position Sensors
NOTE:
Vehicles with front passenger seat deleted will
not be equipped with the Seat Belt Buckle
NOTE:
Front and/or side air bags will not deploy in all
collisions. This does not mean something is
wrong with the air bag system.
If you do have a collision which deploys the air
bags, any or all of the following may occur:
• The air bag material may sometimes cause
abrasions and/or skin reddening to the occupants as the air bags deploy and unfold. The
abrasions are similar to friction rope burns or
those you might get sliding along a carpet or
gymnasium floor. They are not caused by contact with chemicals. They are not permanent
and normally heal quickly. However, if you
haven’t healed significantly within a few days,
or if you have any blistering, see your doctor
immediately.
• As the air bags deflate, you may see some
smoke-like particles. The particles are a normal by-product of the process that generates
the non-toxic gas used for air bag inflation.
These airborne particles may irritate the skin,
eyes, nose, or throat. If you have skin or eye
irritation, rinse the area with cool water. For
nose or throat irritation, move to fresh air. If
the irritation continues, see your doctor. If
these particles settle on your clothing, follow
the garment manufacturer’s instructions for
cleaning.
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.
WARNING!
Deployed air bags and seat belt pretensioners cannot protect you in another collision.
Have the air bags, seat belt pretensioners,
and the seat belt retractor assemblies re-

placed by an authorized dealer immediately.
Also, have the Occupant Restraint Controller
System serviced as well.
NOTE:
• Air bag covers may not be obvious in the
interior trim, but they will open during air bag
deployment.
• After any collision, the vehicle should be
taken to an authorized dealer immediately.
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 (If Equipped)
• Cut off battery power to the electric motor (If
Equipped)
• Flash hazard lights as long as the battery has
power
86
• 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.
Your vehicle may also be designed to perform
any of these other functions in response to the
Enhanced Accident Response System:
• Turn off the Fuel Filter Heater, Turn off the
HVAC Blower Motor, Close the HVAC Circulation Door
• Cut off battery power to the:
– Engine
– Electric Motor (if equipped)
– Electric power steering
– Brake booster
– Electric park brake
– Automatic transmission gear selector
– Horn
– Front wiper
– Headlamp washer pump
NOTE:
After an accident, remember to cycle the ignition to the STOP (OFF/LOCK) position and remove the key from the ignition switch to avoid
draining the battery. 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. If there are no fuel leaks or
damage to the vehicle electrical devices (e.g.
headlights) after an accident, reset the system
by following the procedure described below.
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.
Maintaining Your Air Bag System
WARNING!
• Modifications to any part of the air bag
system could cause it to fail when you need
it. You could be injured if the air bag
system is not there to protect you. Do not
modify the components or wiring, including adding any kind of badges or stickers to
the steering wheel hub trim cover or the
upper passenger side of the instrument
panel. Do not modify the front bumper,
vehicle body structure, or add aftermarket
side steps or running boards.
• It is dangerous to try to repair any part of
the air bag system yourself. Be sure to tell
anyone who works on your vehicle that it
has an air bag system.
• Do not attempt to modify any part of your
air bag system. The air bag may inflate
accidentally or may not function properly if
modifications are made. Take your vehicle
to an authorized dealer for any air bag
system service. If your seat, including your
trim cover and cushion, needs to be serviced in any way (including removal or
WARNING!
loosening/tightening of seat attachment
bolts), take the vehicle to an authorized
dealer. Only manufacturer approved seat
accessories may be used. If it is necessary
to modify the air bag system for persons
with disabilities, contact an authorized
dealer.
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;
• 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.
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.

belts were buckled/fastened;
87
SAFETY
Child Restraints
Everyone in your vehicle needs to be buckled up
at all times, including babies and children.
Every state in the United States, and every
Canadian province, requires that small children
ride in proper restraint systems. This is the law,
and you can be prosecuted for ignoring it.
Children 12 years or younger should ride properly buckled up in a rear seat, if available.
If your vehicle is not equipped with a rear seat,
FCA recommends that you do not allow children
12 years old and under to ride in your vehicle. If
the rear seats are not present in your vehicle,
NEVER attempt to install a child restraint in
these positions.
According to crash statistics, children are safer
when properly restrained in the rear seats rather
than in the front.
88
WARNING!
In a collision, an unrestrained child 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 badly injured or
killed. Any child riding in your vehicle should
be in a proper restraint for the child’s size.
There are different sizes and types of restraints
for children from newborn size to the child
almost large enough for an adult safety belt.
Always check the child seat Owner’s Manual to
make sure you have the correct seat for your
child. Carefully read and follow all the instructions and warnings in the child restraint Owner’s
Manual and on all the labels attached to the
child restraint.
Before buying any restraint system, make sure
that it has a label certifying that it meets all
applicable Safety Standards. You should also
make sure that you can install it in the vehicle
where you will use it.

89
SAFETY
Infant And Child Restraints
Safety experts recommend that children ride
rear-facing in the vehicle until they are two years
old or until they reach either the height or
weight limit of their rear-facing child restraint.
Two types of child restraints can be used rearfacing: infant carriers and convertible child
seats.
The infant carrier is only used rear-facing in the
vehicle. It is recommended for children from
birth until they reach the weight or height limit
of the infant carrier. Convertible child seats can
be used either rear-facing or forward-facing in
the vehicle. Convertible child seats often have a
higher weight limit in the rear-facing direction
than infant carriers do, so they can be used
rear-facing by children who have outgrown their
infant carrier but are still less than at least two
years old. Children should remain rear-facing
until they reach the highest weight or height
allowed by their convertible child seat.
WARNING!
• Never place a rear-facing child restraint in
front of an air bag. A deploying passenger
90
WARNING!
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 the
rear seat of a vehicle with a rear seat.
Older Children And Child Restraints
NOTE:
If your vehicle is not equipped with a rear seat,
FCA recommends that you do not allow children
12 years old and under to ride in your vehicle. If
the rear seats are not present in your vehicle,
NEVER attempt to install a child restraint in
these positions.
Children who are two years old or who have
outgrown their rear-facing convertible child seat
can ride forward-facing in the vehicle. Forwardfacing child seats and convertible child seats
used in the forward-facing direction are for children who are over two years old or who have
outgrown the rear-facing weight or height limit
of their rear-facing convertible child seat. Chil-
dren should remain in a forward-facing child
seat with a harness for as long as possible, up to
the highest weight or height allowed by the child
seat.
All children whose weight or height is above the
forward-facing limit for the child seat should
use a belt-positioning booster seat until the
vehicle’s seat belts fit properly. If the child
cannot sit with knees bent over the vehicle’s
seat cushion while the child’s back is against
the seatback, they should use a belt-positioning
booster seat. The child and belt-positioning
booster seat are held in the vehicle by the seat
belt.
WARNING!
• Improper installation can lead to failure of
an infant or child restraint. It could come
loose in a collision. The child could be
badly injured or killed. Follow the child
restraint manufacturer’s directions exactly
when installing an infant or child restraint.
• After a child restraint is installed in the
vehicle, do not move the vehicle seat forward or rearward because it can loosen the
WARNING!
child restraint attachments. Remove the
child restraint before adjusting the vehicle
seat position. When the vehicle seat has
been adjusted, reinstall the child restraint.
• When your child restraint is not in use,
secure it in the vehicle with the seat belt or
LATCH anchorages, or remove it from the
vehicle. Do not leave it loose in the vehicle.
In a sudden stop or accident, it could strike
the occupants or seatbacks and cause serious personal injury.
Children Too Large For Booster Seats
NOTE:
If your vehicle is not equipped with a rear seat,
FCA recommends that you do not allow children
12 years old and under to ride in your vehicle. If
the rear seats are not present in your vehicle,
NEVER attempt to install a child restraint in
these positions.
Children who are large enough to wear the
shoulder belt comfortably, and whose legs are
long enough to bend over the front of the seat
when their back is against the seatback, should
use the seat belt in a rear seat. Use this simple
5-step test to decide whether the child can use
the vehicle’s seat belt alone:
WARNING!
1. Can the child sit all the way back against the
back of the vehicle seat?
Never allow a child to put the shoulder belt
under an arm or behind their back. In a
crash, the shoulder belt will not protect a
child properly, which may result in serious
injury or death. A child must always wear
both the lap and shoulder portions of the seat
belt correctly.
2. Do the child’s knees bend comfortably over
the front of the vehicle seat – while the child
is still sitting all the way back?
3. Does the shoulder belt cross the child’s
shoulder between their neck and arm?
4. Is the lap part of the belt as low as possible,
touching the child’s thighs and not the
stomach?
5. Can the child stay seated like this for the
whole trip?
WARNING!
If the rear or front passenger seats are not
present in your vehicle, NEVER install a child
restraint in these positions.
If the answer to any of these questions was
“no,” then the child still needs to use a booster
seat in this vehicle. If the child is using the
lap/shoulder belt, check seat belt fit periodically
and make sure the seat belt buckle is latched. A
child’s squirming or slouching can move the
belt out of position. If the shoulder belt contacts
the face or neck, move the child closer to the
center of the vehicle, or use a booster seat to
position the seat belt on the child correctly.

Lower Anchors And Tethers For CHildren
(LATCH) Restraint System
LATCH Label
Your vehicle is equipped with the child restraint
anchorage system called LATCH, which stands
for Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren. The
LATCH system has three vehicle anchor points
for installing LATCH-equipped child seats.
There are two lower anchorages located at the
back of the seat cushion where it meets the
seatback and one top tether anchorage located
behind the seating position. These anchorages
are used to install LATCH-equipped child seats
without using the vehicle’s seat belts. Some
seating positions may have a top tether anchorage but no lower anchorages. In these seating
positions, the seat belt must be used with the
top tether anchorage to install the child restraint. Please see the following table for more
information.
LATCH Positions For Installing Child Restraints In This Vehicle
WARNING!
If the rear or front passenger seats are not
present in your vehicle, NEVER install a child
restraint in these positions.
Vehicles Without Passenger Seating Installed
If your vehicle is not equipped with a rear
passenger seat, your vehicle is not equipped
with LATCH anchorages. If your vehicle is not
equipped with a rear seat, FCA recommends
that you do not allow children 12 years old and
under to ride in your vehicle. If the rear seats are
not present in your vehicle, NEVER attempt to
install a child restraint in these positions. If you
must install a forward facing child restraint in
the front passenger seat, then you must use the
seat belt system to secure the restraint.

SAFETY
Locating The LATCH Anchorages
Locating The Upper Tether Anchorages
There are tether strap anchorages behind
each rear seating position located in the panel
between the rear seatback and the rear window.
They are found under a plastic cover with the
tether anchorage symbol on it.
WARNING!
If the rear or front passenger seats are not
present in your vehicle, NEVER install a child
restraint in these positions.
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 Anchorages
WARNING!
If the rear or front passenger seats are not
present in your vehicle, NEVER install a child
restraint in these positions.
96
Tether Strap Anchorages
LATCH-compatible child restraint systems will
be equipped with a rigid bar or a flexible strap
on each side. Each will have a hook or connector
to attach to the lower anchorage and a way to
tighten the connection to the anchorage.
Forward-facing child restraints and some rearfacing child restraints will also be equipped with
a tether strap. The tether strap will have a hook
at the end to attach to the top tether anchorage
and a way to tighten the strap after it is attached
to the anchorage.
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.
WARNING!
Never use the same lower anchorage to attach more than one child restraint. Please
refer to “To Install A LATCH-Compatible
Child Restraint” for typical installation instructions.
Always follow the directions of the child restraint manufacturer when installing your child
restraint. Not all child restraint systems will be
installed as described here.
To Install A LATCH-Compatible Child Restraint
If the selected seating position has a Switchable
Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) seat belt,
stow the seat belt, following the instructions
below. See the section “Installing Child Restraints Using the Vehicle Seat Belt” to check
what type of seat belt each seating position has.
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. Place the child seat between the lower anchorages for that seating position. For some
second row seats, you may need to recline
the seat and / or raise the head restraint to
get a better fit. If the rear seat can be moved
forward and rearward in the vehicle, you may
wish to move it to its rear-most position to
make room for the child seat. You may also
move the front seat forward to allow more
room for the child seat.
3. Attach the lower hooks or connectors of the
child restraint to the lower anchorages in the
selected seating position.
4. If the child restraint has a tether strap, connect it to the top tether anchorage. See the
section “Installing Child Restraints Using
the Top Tether Anchorage” for directions to
attach a tether anchor.
5. 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.
6. 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.
How To Stow An Unused Switchable-ALR
(ALR) Seat Belt:
When using the LATCH attaching system to
install a child restraint, stow all ALR seat belts
that are not being used by other occupants or
being used to secure child restraints. An unused
belt could injure a child if they play with it and
97
SAFETY
accidentally lock the seat belt retractor. Before
installing a child restraint using the LATCH
system, buckle the seat belt behind the child
restraint and out of the child’s reach. If the
buckled seat belt interferes with the child restraint installation, instead of buckling it behind
the child restraint, route the seat belt through
the child restraint belt path and then buckle it.
Do not lock the seat belt. Remind all children in
the vehicle that the seat belts are not toys and
that they should not play with them.
WARNING!
• Improper installation of a child restraint to
the LATCH anchorages can lead to failure
of the restraint. The child could be badly
injured or killed. Follow the child restraint
manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or child restraint.
• Child restraint anchorages are designed to
withstand only those loads imposed by
correctly-fitted child restraints. Under no
circumstances are they to be used for adult
seat belts, harnesses, or for attaching other
items or equipment to the vehicle.
98
Installing Child Restraints Using The Vehicle Seat Belt
NOTE:
If your vehicle is not equipped with a rear seat,
FCA recommends that you do not allow children
12 years old and under to ride in your vehicle. If
the rear seats are not present in your vehicle,
NEVER attempt to install a child restraint in
these positions.
Child restraint systems are designed to be secured in vehicle seats by lap belts or the lap belt
portion of a lap/shoulder belt.
WARNING!
• Never place a rear-facing child restraint in
front of an air bag. A deploying passenger
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.
WARNING!
• Improper installation or failure to properly
secure a child restraint can lead to failure
of the restraint. The child could be badly
injured or killed.
• Follow the child restraint manufacturer’s
directions exactly when installing an infant
or child restraint.
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 so that it is not necessary to
use a locking clip. The ALR retractor can be
“switched” into a locked mode by pulling all of
the webbing out of the retractor and then letting
the webbing retract back into the retractor. If it
is locked, the ALR will make a clicking noise
while the webbing is pulled back into the retractor. Refer to the “Automatic Locking Mode”
description in “Switchable Automatic Locking
Retractors (ALR)” under “Occupant Restraint
Systems” for additional information on ALR.
Please see the table below and the following
sections for more information.

Installing A Child Restraint With A Switchable Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR):
Child restraint systems are designed to be secured in vehicle seats by lap belts or the lap belt
portion of a lap/shoulder belt.
WARNING!
• Improper installation or failure to properly
secure a child restraint can lead to failure
of the restraint. The child could be badly
injured or killed.
100
WARNING!
• Follow the child restraint manufacturer’s
directions exactly when installing an infant
or child restraint.
1. Place the child seat in the center of the
seating position. For some second row seats,
you may need to recline the seat and/or raise
the head restraint to get a better fit. If the
rear seat can be moved forward and rearward
in the vehicle, you may wish to move it to its
rear-most position to make room for the child
seat. You may also move the front seat forward to allow more room for the child seat.
2. 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.
3. Slide the latch plate into the buckle until you
hear a “click.”
4. Pull on the webbing to make the lap portion
tight against the child seat.
5. 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.
6. 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 step 5.
7. Finally, pull up on any excess webbing to
tighten the lap portion around the child restraint while you push the child restraint
rearward and downward into the vehicle
seat.
8. 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
the section “Installing Child Restraints Using the Top Tether Anchorage” for directions
to attach a tether anchor.
9. 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.
Any seat belt system will loosen with time, so
check the belt occasionally, and pull it tight if
necessary.
WARNING!

See the section “Lower Anchors and Tethers
for CHildren (LATCH) Restraint System” for
the location of approved tether anchorages in
your vehicle.
Installing Child Restraints Using The Top
Tether Anchorage:
WARNING!
If the rear or front passenger seats are not
present in your vehicle, NEVER install a child
restraint in these positions.
WARNING!
Do not attach a tether strap for a rear-facing
car seat to any location in front of the car
seat, including the seat frame or a tether
anchorage. Only attach the tether strap of a
rear-facing car seat to the tether anchorage
that is approved for that seating position,
1. Look behind the seating position where you
plan to install the child restraint to find the
tether anchorage. You may need to move the
seat forward to provide better access to the
tether anchorage. If there is no top tether
anchorage for that seating position, move
the child restraint to another position in the
vehicle if one is available.
101
SAFETY
2. Rotate or lift the cover to access the anchor
directly behind the seat where you are placing the child restraint.
3. Route the tether strap to provide the most
direct path for the strap between the anchor
and the child seat. 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.

instructions.
102
NOTE:
If your vehicle is not equipped with a rear seat,
FCA recommends that you do not allow children
12 years old and under to ride in your vehicle. If
the rear seats are not present in your vehicle,
NEVER attempt to install a child restraint in
these positions. If you must install a forward
facing child restraint in the front passenger
seat, then you must use the seat belt system to
secure the restraint. A top tether strap extension
may be needed to reach the tether anchor on
the rear shelf directly behind the passenger
seat.
WARNING!
• An incorrectly anchored tether strap could
lead to increased head motion and possible injury to the child. Use only the anchorage position 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.
Transporting Pets
Air Bags deploying in the front seat could harm
your pet. An unrestrained pet will be thrown
about and possibly injured, or injure a passenger during panic braking or in a collision.
Pets should be restrained in the rear seat in pet
harnesses or pet carriers that are secured by
seat belts.
SAFETY TIPS
Transporting Passengers
NEVER TRANSPORT PASSENGERS IN THE
CARGO AREA.
WARNING!
• Do not leave children or animals inside
parked vehicles in hot weather. Interior
heat build-up may cause serious injury or
death.
• It is extremely dangerous to ride in a cargo
area, inside or outside of a vehicle. In a
collision, people riding in these areas are
more likely to be seriously injured or killed.
• Do not allow people to ride in any area of
your vehicle that is not equipped with seats
and seat belts.
• Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat
and using a seat belt properly.
Exhaust Gas
WARNING!
Exhaust gases can injure or kill. They contain
carbon monoxide (CO), which is colorless
and odorless. Breathing it can make you
unconscious and can eventually poison you.
To avoid breathing (CO), follow these safety
tips:
• Do not run the engine in a closed garage or
in confined areas any longer than needed
to move your vehicle in or out of the area.
• If you are required to drive with the trunk/
liftgate/rear doors open, make sure that all
windows are closed and the climate control
BLOWER switch is set at high speed. DO
NOT use the recirculation mode.
• If it is necessary to sit in a parked vehicle
with the engine running, adjust your heating or cooling controls to force outside air
into the vehicle. Set the blower at high
speed.
103
SAFETY
The best protection against carbon monoxide
entry into the vehicle body is a properly maintained engine exhaust system.
Whenever a change is noticed in the sound of
the exhaust system, when exhaust fumes can be
detected inside the vehicle, or when the underside or rear of the vehicle is damaged, have a
competent mechanic inspect the complete exhaust system and adjacent body areas for broken, damaged, deteriorated, or mispositioned
parts. Open seams or loose connections could
permit exhaust fumes to seep into the passenger compartment. In addition, inspect the exhaust system each time the vehicle is raised for
lubrication or oil change. Replace as required.
Safety Checks You Should Make Inside
The Vehicle
Seat Belts
Inspect the seat belt system periodically, checking for cuts, frays, and loose parts. Damaged
parts must be replaced immediately. Do not
disassemble or modify the system.
104
Front seat belt assemblies must be replaced
after a collision. Rear seat belt assemblies must
be replaced after a collision if they have been
damaged (i.e., bent retractor, torn webbing,
etc.). If there is any question regarding seat belt
or retractor condition, replace the seat belt.
Defroster
Check operation by selecting the defrost mode
and place the blower control on high speed. You
should be able to feel the air directed against
the windshield. See your authorized dealer for
service if your defroster is inoperable.
Air Bag Warning Light
The Air Bag warning light
will turn on for
four to eight seconds as a bulb check when the
ignition switch is first turned to ON/RUN. If the
light is either not on during starting, stays on, or
turns on while driving, have the system inspected at your authorized dealer as soon as
possible. After the bulb check, this light will
illuminate with a single chime when a fault with
the Air Bag System has been detected. It will
stay on until the fault is removed. If the light
comes on intermittently or remains on while
driving, have your authorized dealer service the
vehicle immediately.
Refer to “Occupant Restraint Systems” in
“Safety” for further information.
Floor Mat Safety Information

the PARK position, or it could roll.
For vehicles equipped with the 3.6L or 5.7L use
the following engine break-in recommendations:
• If the ignition switch is left in the RUN position, the system will automatically time out
after 30 minutes of inactivity if the vehicle
speed is 0 mph (0 km/h) and the engine is not
running.
• If the vehicle speed is above 5 mph (8 km/h),
the ENGINE START/STOP button must be
held for two seconds or three short pushes in a
row before the engine will shut off. The ignition switch position will remain in the ACC
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 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. However, wide-open throttle
acceleration in low gear can be detrimental and
should be avoided.
109
STARTING AND OPERATING
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 “Fluids
And Lubricants” in “Technical Specifications”.
This wearing in occurs mainly during the first
500 miles (805 km) and continues through the
first oil change interval.
It is recommended for the operator to observe
the following driving behaviors during the new
vehicle break-in period:
0 to 100 miles (0 to 161 km):
CAUTION!
• Do not allow the engine to operate at idle for
an extended period of time.
Never use Non-Detergent Oil or Straight Mineral Oil in the engine or damage may result.
• Press the accelerator pedal slowly and not
more than halfway to avoid rapid acceleration.
• Avoid aggressive braking.
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.
For vehicles equipped with the 6.4L use the
following engine break-in recommendations:
Despite modern technology and World Class
manufacturing methods, the moving parts of
the vehicle must still wear in with each other.

• Press the accelerator pedal slowly and not
more than halfway to avoid rapid acceleration
in lower gears (1st to 3rd gears).
• Avoid aggressive braking.
• Drive with the engine speed less than
5,000 RPM.
• Maintain vehicle speed below 70 mph
(112 km/h) and observe local speed limits.
300 to 500 miles (483 to 805 km):
• Exercise the full engine rpm range, shifting
manually (paddles or gear shift) at higher
rpms when possible.
• Do not perform sustained operation with the
accelerator pedal at wide open throttle.
• Maintain vehicle speed below 85 mph
(136 km/h) and observe local speed limits.
For the first 1500 miles (2414 km):
• Do not participate in track events, sport driving schools, or similar activities during the

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION —
IF EQUIPPED
WARNING!
• Never use the PARK position as a substitute for the parking brake. Always apply
the parking brake fully when exiting the
vehicle to guard against vehicle movement
and possible injury or damage.
112
WARNING!
WARNING!
• Your vehicle could move and injure you
and others if it is not in PARK. Check by
trying to move the transmission gear selector out of PARK with the brake pedal released. Make sure the transmission is in
PARK before exiting the vehicle.
• The transmission may not engage PARK if
the vehicle is moving. Always bring the
vehicle to a complete stop before shifting
to PARK, and verify that the transmission
gear position indicator solidly indicates
PARK (P) without blinking. Ensure that the
vehicle is completely stopped, and the
PARK position is properly indicated, before exiting the vehicle.
• It is dangerous to shift out of PARK or
NEUTRAL if the engine speed is higher
than idle speed. If your foot is not firmly
pressing the brake pedal, the vehicle could
accelerate quickly forward or in reverse.
You could lose control of the vehicle and
hit someone or something. Only shift into
gear when the engine is idling normally
and your foot is firmly pressing the brake
pedal.
• Unintended movement of a vehicle could
injure those in or near the vehicle. As with
all vehicles, you should never exit a vehicle
while the engine is running. Before exiting
a vehicle, always come to a complete stop,
then apply the parking brake, shift the
transmission into PARK, and turn the ignition OFF. When the ignition is in the OFF
mode, the transmission is locked in PARK,
securing the vehicle against unwanted
movement.
• When exiting the vehicle, always make
sure the ignition is in the 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
transmission gear selector.
WARNING!
• Do not leave the key fob in or near the
vehicle (or in a location accessible to children), and do not leave the ignition in the
ACC or ON/RUN mode. A child could operate power windows, other controls, or
move the vehicle.
CAUTION!
Damage to the transmission may occur if the
following precautions are not observed:
• Shift into or out of PARK or REVERSE only
after the vehicle has come to a complete
stop.
• Do not shift between PARK, REVERSE,
NEUTRAL, or DRIVE when the engine is
above idle speed.
• Before shifting into any gear, make sure
your foot is firmly pressing the brake pedal.
NOTE:
You must press and hold the brake pedal while
shifting out of PARK.
Eight-Speed Automatic Transmission
The transmission gear range (PRNDM) is displayed both on the gear selector and in the
instrument cluster.
To select a gear range, press the lock button on
the gear selector and move the selector 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.
NOTE:
In the event of a mismatch between the gear
selector position and the actual transmission
gear (for example, driver selects PARK while
driving), the position indicator will blink continuously until the selector is returned to the
proper position, or the requested shift can be
completed.
Transmission Gear Selector
1 — Lock Button
2 — Gear Selector
The electronically-controlled transmission adapts
its shift schedule based on driver inputs, along
with environmental and road conditions. 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).
113
STARTING AND OPERATING
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.
Refer to Automatic Transmission in the Owner’s
Manual for further details.
The transmission gear selector provides PARK,
REVERSE, NEUTRAL, DRIVE, and MANUAL
(AutoStick) shift positions. Manual shifts can
be made using the AutoStick shift control. Toggling the gear selector 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. Refer to "AutoStick" in this section for
further information.
AutoStick is a driver-interactive transmission
feature providing manual shift control, giving
you more control of the vehicle. AutoStick allows you to maximize engine braking, eliminate
undesirable upshifts and downshifts, and improve overall vehicle performance.
NOTE:
If the gear selector 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 gear selector
to the right (into the DRIVE [D] position) for
access to PARK, REVERSE, and NEUTRAL.
When the gear selector is in the DRIVE (D)
position, the transmission will operate automatically, shifting between the eight available
gears. To activate AutoStick, move the gear
selector 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 gear selector is in the MANUAL
(M) position, tap the gear selector forward (-) (or
tap the (-) shift paddle on the steering wheel, if

Operation
NOTE:
• Tapping one of the steering wheel-mounted
shift paddles (+/-), if equipped, while the gear
selector 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 gear selector remains in DRIVE) after a period of time, depending on accelerator pedal activity.
• In some models, the shift paddles may be
disabled (or re-enabled, as desired) using
Drive Mode Set-Up, accessed by selecting
Performance Control from the Apps menu in
the Uconnect screen.
In AutoStick mode, the transmission will shift up
or down when (+/-) is manually selected by the
driver (using the gear selector, 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 (gear selector 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 (gear
selector in MANUAL position), manual gear
selection will be maintained until the gear
selector 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 gear selector 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 enabled.
• The system may revert to automatic shift
mode if a fault or overheat condition is
detected.
To disengage AutoStick mode, return the gear
selector to the DRIVE position, or press and hold
the (+) shift paddle (if equipped, and the gear
selector 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.

set when the vehicle speed is above 20 mph
(32 km/h), the set speed shall be the current
speed of the vehicle.
If the ACC sensor detects a vehicle ahead, ACC
will apply limited braking or acceleration automatically to maintain a preset following distance, while matching the speed of the vehicle
ahead.
NOTE:
ACC cannot be set if there is a stationary vehicle
in front of your vehicle in close proximity.
If the sensor does not detect a vehicle ahead of
you, ACC will maintain a fixed set speed.

shown is dependant on the chosen speed unit of
U.S. (mph) or Metric (km/h):
U.S. Speed (mph)
• Pushing the SET (+) button once will result in
a 1 mph increase in set speed. Each subsequent tap of the button results in an increase
of 1 mph.
• If the button is continually pushed, the set
speed will continue to increase in 5 mph
increments until the button is released. The
increase in set speed is reflected in the instrument cluster display.
Metric Speed (km/h)
• Pushing the SET (+) button once will result in
a 1 km/h increase in set speed. Each subsequent tap of the button results in an increase
of 1 km/h.
122
• If the button is continually pushed, the set

a 1 km/h decrease in set speed. Each subsequent tap of the button results in a decrease
of 1 km/h.
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
15 mph (24 km/h) when following a target
vehicle.
• 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).
To Resume
If there is a set speed in memory push the RES
(resume) button and then remove your foot from
the accelerator pedal. The instrument cluster
display will display the last set speed.
NOTE:
ACC cannot be resumed if there is a stationary

dangerous. You could accidentally set the
system or cause it to go faster than you want.
You could lose control and have an accident.
Always leave the system OFF when you are
not using it.
Setting The Following Distance
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 appears in the instrument cluster display.
• 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 Normal (Fixed Speed) Cruise Control
123
STARTING AND OPERATING
mode. While in the Normal (Fixed Speed)
Cruise 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) Cruise Control off.

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
124
WARNING!
WARNING!
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) Cruise Control mode
for cruising at a constant preset speed. For
additional information, refer to “Normal
(Fixed Speed) Cruise Control Mode” in
your Owner’s Manual.
WARNING!
Normal (Fixed Speed) Cruise 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.

IN CASE OF EMERGENCY
FUSES
General Information
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.
Do not place a fuse inside a circuit breaker
cavity or vice versa. 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, transmission system) or steering system blows,
contact an authorized dealer.
134
The fuses protect electrical systems against
excessive current.
When a device does not work, you must check
the fuse element inside the blade fuse for a
break/melt.
Also, please be aware that when using power
outlets for extended periods of time with the
engine off may result in vehicle battery discharge.
Underhood 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.

WARNING!
Do not attempt jump starting if the battery is
frozen. It could rupture or explode and cause
personal injury.
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.
NOTE:
When using a portable battery booster pack,
follow the manufacturer's operating instructions
and precautions.
Preparations For Jump Start
JUMP STARTING
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.
The battery is stored under an access cover in
the trunk. Remote battery posts are located on
the right side of the engine compartment for
jump starting.
WARNING!
• 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.
Jump Starting Locations
(+) — Positive Terminal
(-) — Negative Terminal
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.
1. Apply the parking brake, shift into PARK (automatic transmission) or FIRST GEAR (manual
transmission) and cycle the ignition to 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 OFF.
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 remote positive (+) post of the
vehicle with the discharged battery.
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.
153
IN CASE OF EMERGENCY
4. Connect the opposite end of the negative (-)
jumper cable to the remote negative (-) post
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.
WARNING!
3. Disconnect the positive (+) end of the
jumper cable from the positive (+) post of
the booster battery.
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
personal 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.
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 remote negative (-)
post of the vehicle with the discharged
battery.
154
4. Disconnect the opposite end of the positive
(+) jumper cable from the remote 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 an 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 devices,
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.
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 while preventing
vehicle motion with the brakes.
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.
CAUTION!
Driving with a hot cooling system could damage your vehicle. If the temperature gauge
reads HOT (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
HOT (H), and you hear continuous chimes,
turn the engine off immediately and call for
service.
MANUAL PARK RELEASE —
8 SPEED TRANSMISSION
2. Remove the console storage bin to access
the Manual Park Release lever.
WARNING!
Always secure your vehicle by fully applying
the parking brake before activating the
Manual Park Release. In addition, you
should be seated in the driver's seat with your
foot firmly on the brake pedal when activating the Manual Park Release. Activating the
Manual Park Release will allow your vehicle
to roll away if it is not secured by the parking
brake, or by proper connection to a tow vehicle. Activating the Manual Park Release on
an unsecured vehicle could lead to serious
injury or death for those in or around the
vehicle.
In order to move the vehicle in cases where the
transmission will not shift out of PARK (such as a
dead battery), a Manual Park Release is available.
Follow these steps to use the Manual Park
Release:
1. Firmly apply the parking brake.
Console Storage Bin
3. Using a small screwdriver or similar tool, fish
the tether strap up through the opening in
the console base.
4. Press and maintain firm pressure on the
brake pedal.
5. Insert the screwdriver into the slot in the
center of the lever, and disengage the lever
locking tab by pushing it to the right.
155
IN CASE OF EMERGENCY
6. While holding the locking tab in the disengaged position, pull the tether strap to rotate
the lever up and rearward until it locks in
place in the vertical position. The vehicle is
now out of PARK and can be moved. Release
the parking brake only when the vehicle is
securely connected to a tow vehicle.
To Reset The Manual Park Release:
1. Push the latch (at the base of the lever, on
the rear side) rearward (away from the lever)
to unlatch the lever.
2. Rotate the Manual Park Release lever forward and down, to its original position, until
the locking tab snaps into place to secure
the lever.
3. Pull up gently on the tether strap to confirm
that the lever is locked in its stowed position.
4. Tuck the tether strap into the base of the
console. Reinstall the console storage bin.
FREEING A STUCK VEHICLE
Tether Strap
156
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 gear selector. Then
shift back and forth between DRIVE and REVERSE (with automatic transmission) or FIRST
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.
NOTE:
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
press the brake pedal to engage DRIVE or
REVERSE.
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.
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 “Safety” in the
Owner’s Manual for further information. Once
the vehicle has been freed, push the "ESC Off"
switch again to restore "ESC On" mode.
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.
CAUTION!
• When “rocking” a stuck vehicle by shifting
between DRIVE / FIRST 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).

The manufacturer recommends towing your vehicle with all four wheels OFF the ground using
a flatbed.
If the transmission and driveline are operable,
AWD models can also be towed with the ignition
in the ON/RUN mode, the transmission in NEUTRAL (not in PARK!), and the rear wheels OFF
the ground with no limitation on speed or distance. Since the ignition MUST be in the ON/
RUN mode to tow in this manner, AWD vehicles
must be towed with ALL FOUR wheels OFF the
ground (e.g. on a flatbed truck) if the key fob is
unavailable.
If flatbed equipment is not available, and the
transmission is operable, the vehicle may be flat
towed (with all four wheels on the ground) under
the following conditions:
CAUTION!
• The transmission must be in NEUTRAL. Refer
to "Manual Park Release" in this section for
instructions on shifting the automatic transmission to NEUTRAL when the engine is off.
If the transmission is not operable, or the vehicle must be towed faster than 30 mph
(48 km/h) or farther than 30 miles (48 km),
then the only acceptable method of towing is
with a flatbed truck.
CAUTION!

requirements can cause severe engine and/or
transmission damage. Damage from improper towing is not covered under the New
Vehicle Limited Warranty.
• The towing distance must not exceed
30 miles (48 km).
• The towing speed must not exceed 30 mph
(48 km/h).
• Towing this vehicle using any other method
can cause severe transmission and/or
transfer case damage.
• Damage from improper towing is not covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE
SCHEDULED SERVICING
3.6L And 5.7L Engines
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 shorttrips, 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 (800 km).
The “Oil Change Required” message will be
displayed in the instrument cluster and a single
chime will sound, indicating that an oil change
is necessary.
162
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 “Instrument Cluster Display” in “Getting
To Know Your Instrument Panel” in this guide,
or “Instrument Cluster Display” in “Getting To
Know Your Instrument Panel” in your Owner’s
Manual 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.

Definition
The vehicle B-Pillar is the structural member of the body located behind the front door.
Cold tire inflation pressure is defined as the tire pressure after the vehicle has not been
driven for at least three hours, or driven less than 1 mile (1.6 km) after sitting for a minimum of three hours. Inflation pressure is measured in units of PSI (pounds per square
inch) or kPa (kilopascals).
The maximum inflation pressure is the maximum permissible cold tire inflation pressure for
this tire. The maximum inflation pressure is molded into the sidewall.
Vehicle manufacturer's recommended cold tire inflation pressure as shown on the tire placard.
A label permanently attached to the vehicle describing the vehicle’s loading capacity, the
original equipment tire sizes and the recommended cold tire inflation pressures.
Tire Loading And Tire Pressure
This placard tells you important information
about the:
NOTE:
The proper cold tire inflation pressure is listed
on the driver’s side B-Pillar or the rear edge of
the driver's side door.
1. Number of people that can be carried in the
vehicle.
2. Total weight your vehicle can carry.
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.
3. Tire size designed for your vehicle.
4. Cold tire inflation pressures for the front,
rear, and spare tires.
Loading
Example Tire Placard Location (B-Pillar)
Tire And Loading Information Placard
Tire And Loading Information Placard
Example Tire Placard Location (Door)
The vehicle maximum load on the tire must not
exceed the load carrying capacity of the tire on
your vehicle. You will not exceed the tire's load
carrying capacity if you adhere to the loading
conditions, tire size, and cold tire inflation pressures specified on the Tire and Loading Information placard in “Vehicle Loading” in the
“Starting And Operating” section of your Owner’s Manual.
NOTE:
Under a maximum loaded vehicle condition,
gross axle weight ratings (GAWRs) for the front
and rear axles must not be exceeded.
179
SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE
To determine the maximum loading conditions
of your vehicle, locate the statement “The combined weight of occupants and cargo should
never exceed XXX kg or XXX lbs” on the Tire and
Loading Information placard. The combined
weight of occupants, cargo/luggage and trailer
tongue weight (if applicable) should never exceed the weight referenced here.
Steps For Determining Correct Load
Limit—
(1) Locate the statement “The combined weight of occupants and cargo
should never exceed XXX kg or XXX lbs.”
on your vehicle's placard.
(2) Determine the combined weight of
the driver and passengers that will be
riding in your vehicle.
(3) Subtract the combined weight of the
driver and passengers from XXX kg or
XXX lbs.
180
(4) The resulting figure equals the available amount of cargo and luggage load
capacity. For example, if “XXX” amount
equals 1400 lbs. and there will be five
150 lb passengers in your vehicle, the
amount of available cargo and luggage
load capacity is 650 lbs. (1400-750
(5x150) = 650 lbs.)
(5) Determine the combined weight of
luggage and cargo being loaded on the
vehicle. That weight may not safely exceed the available cargo and luggage
load capacity calculated in Step 4.
(6) If your vehicle will be towing a trailer,
load from your trailer will be transferred
to your vehicle. Consult this manual to
determine how this reduces the available cargo and luggage load capacity of
your vehicle.
Metric Example For Load Limit
For example, if “XXX” amount equals 635 kg
and there will be five 68 kg passengers in your
vehicle, the amount of available cargo and luggage load capacity is 295 kg (635-340 (5x68)
= 295 kg) as shown in step 4.
NOTE:
• If your vehicle will be towing a trailer, load
from your trailer will be transferred to your
vehicle. The following table shows examples
on how to calculate total load, cargo/luggage,
and towing capacities of your vehicle with
varying seating configurations and number
and size of occupants. This table is for illustration purposes only and may not be accurate
for the seating and load carry capacity of your
vehicle.
• For the following example, the combined
weight of occupants and cargo should never
exceed 865 lbs (392 kg).
181
SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE
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.
Tires — General Information
Tire Pressure
Proper tire inflation pressure is essential to the
safe and satisfactory operation of your vehicle.
Four primary areas are affected by improper tire
pressure:
• Safety and Vehicle Stability
• Economy
• Tread Wear
• Ride Comfort
Safety
WARNING!
• Improperly inflated tires are dangerous
and can cause collisions.
• Underinflation increases tire flexing and
can result in overheating and tire failure.
• Overinflation reduces a tire's ability to
cushion shock. Objects on the road and
chuckholes can cause damage that result
in tire failure.
• Overinflated or underinflated tires can affect vehicle handling and can fail suddenly, resulting in loss of vehicle control.
• Unequal tire pressures can cause steering
problems. You could lose control of your
vehicle.
• Unequal tire pressures from one side of the
vehicle to the other can cause the vehicle
to drift to the right or left.
• Always drive with each tire inflated to the
recommended cold tire inflation pressure.
Both under-inflation and over-inflation affect
the stability of the vehicle and can produce a
feeling of sluggish response or over responsiveness in the steering.
NOTE:
• Unequal tire pressures from side to side may
cause erratic and unpredictable steering response.
• Unequal tire pressure from side to side may
cause the vehicle to drift left or right.
Fuel Economy
Underinflated tires will increase tire rolling resistance resulting in higher fuel consumption.
Tread Wear
Improper cold tire inflation pressures can cause
abnormal wear patterns and reduced tread life,
resulting in the need for earlier tire replacement.
Ride Comfort And Vehicle Stability
Proper tire inflation contributes to a comfortable ride. Over-inflation produces a jarring and
uncomfortable ride.
182
Tire Inflation Pressures
The proper cold tire inflation pressure is listed
on the driver's side B-Pillar or rear edge of the
driver's side door.
At least once a month:
• Check and adjust tire pressure with a good
quality pocket-type pressure gauge. Do not
make a visual judgement when determining
proper inflation. Tires may look properly inflated even when they are under-inflated.
• Inspect tires for signs of tire wear or visible
damage.
CAUTION!
After inspecting or adjusting the tire pressure, always reinstall the valve stem cap.
This will prevent moisture and dirt from entering the valve stem, which could damage
the valve stem.
Inflation pressures specified on the placard are
always “cold tire inflation pressure”. Cold tire
inflation pressure is defined as the tire pressure
after the vehicle has not been driven for at least
three hours, or driven less than 1 mile (1.6 km)
after sitting for a minimum of three hours. The
cold tire inflation pressure must not exceed the
maximum inflation pressure molded into the
tire sidewall.
Check tire pressures more often if subject to a
wide range of outdoor temperatures, as tire
pressures vary with temperature changes.
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 = 68°F (20°C)
and the outside temperature = 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.
Tire pressure may increase from 2 to 6 psi (13 to
40 kPa) during operation. DO NOT reduce this
normal pressure build up or your tire pressure
will be too low.
Tire Pressures For High Speed Operation
The manufacturer advocates driving at safe
speeds and within posted speed limits. Where
speed limits or conditions are such that the
vehicle can be driven at high speeds, maintaining correct tire inflation pressure is very important. Increased tire pressure and reduced vehicle loading may be required for high-speed
vehicle operation. Refer to an authorized tire
dealer or original equipment vehicle dealer for
recommended safe operating speeds, loading
and cold tire inflation pressures.
WARNING!
High speed driving with your vehicle under
maximum load is dangerous. The added
strain on your tires could cause them to fail.
You could have a serious collision. Do not
drive a vehicle loaded to the maximum capacity at continuous speeds above 75 mph
(120 km/h).
183
SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE
Radial Ply Tires
WARNING!
Combining radial ply tires with other types of
tires on your vehicle will cause your vehicle to
handle poorly. The instability could cause a
collision. Always use radial ply tires in sets of
four. Never combine them with other types of
tires.
Tire Repair
If your tire becomes damaged, it may be repaired if it meets the following criteria:
• The tire has not been driven on when flat.
• The damage is only on the tread section of
your tire (sidewall damage is not repairable).
Damaged Run Flat tires, or Run Flat tires that
have experienced a loss of pressure should be
replaced immediately with another Run Flat tire
of identical size and service description (Load
Index and Speed Symbol).
Run Flat Tires — If Equipped
Run Flat tires allow you the capability to drive
50 miles (80 km) at 50 mph (80 km/h) after a
rapid loss of inflation pressure. This rapid loss of
inflation is referred to as the Run Flat mode. A
Run Flat mode occurs when the tire inflation
pressure is of/or below 14 psi (96 kPa). Once a
Run Flat tire reaches the run flat mode it has
limited driving capabilities and needs to be
replaced immediately. A Run Flat tire is not
repairable.
• The puncture is no greater than a ¼ of an inch
(6 mm).
It is not recommended driving a vehicle loaded
at full capacity or to tow a trailer while a tire is in
the run flat mode.
Consult an authorized tire dealer for tire repairs
and additional information.
See the tire pressure monitoring section for
more information.
184
Tire Spinning
When stuck in mud, sand, snow, or ice conditions, do not spin your vehicle's wheels above
30 mph (48 km/h) or for longer than 30 seconds continuously without stopping.
Refer to “Freeing A Stuck Vehicle” in “In Case
Of Emergency” for further information.
WARNING!
Fast spinning tires can be dangerous. Forces
generated by excessive wheel speeds may
cause tire damage or failure. A tire could
explode and injure someone. Do not spin
your vehicle's wheels faster than 30 mph
(48 km/h) for more than 30 seconds continuously when you are stuck, and do not let
anyone near a spinning wheel, no matter
what the speed.
Tread Wear Indicators
Life Of Tire
Tread wear indicators are in the original equipment tires to help you in determining when your
tires should be replaced.
The service life of a tire is dependent upon
varying factors including, but not limited to:
Tire Tread
1 — Worn Tire
2 — New Tire
These indicators are molded into the bottom of
the tread grooves. They will appear as bands
when the tread depth becomes a 1/16 of an
inch (1.6 mm). When the tread is worn to the
tread wear indicators, the tire should be replaced. Refer to “Replacement Tires” in this
section for further information.
Keep dismounted tires in a cool, dry place with
as little exposure to light as possible. Protect
tires from contact with oil, grease, and gasoline.
• Driving style.
Replacement Tires
• Tire pressure - Improper cold tire inflation
pressures can cause uneven wear patterns to
develop across the tire tread. These abnormal
wear patterns will reduce tread life, resulting
in the need for earlier tire replacement.
The tires on your new vehicle provide a balance
of many characteristics. They should be inspected regularly for wear and correct cold tire
inflation pressures. The manufacturer strongly
recommends that you use tires equivalent to the
originals in size, quality and performance when
replacement is needed. Refer to the paragraph
on “Tread Wear Indicators” in this section. Refer to the Tire and Loading Information placard
or the Vehicle Certification Label for the size
designation of your tire. The Load Index and
Speed Symbol for your tire will be found on the
original equipment tire sidewall.
• Distance driven.
• Performance tires, tires with a speed rating of
V or higher, and Summer tires typically have a
reduced tread life. Rotation of these tires per
the vehicle scheduled maintenance is highly
recommended.
WARNING!
Tires and the spare tire should be replaced
after six years, regardless of the remaining
tread. Failure to follow this warning can result in sudden tire failure. You could lose
control and have a collision resulting in serious injury or death.
See the Tire Sizing Chart example found in the
“Tire Safety Information” section of this manual
for more information relating to the Load Index
and Speed Symbol of a tire.
185
SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE
It is recommended to replace the two front tires
or two rear tires as a pair. Replacing just one tire
can seriously affect your vehicle’s handling. If
you ever replace a wheel, make sure that the
wheel’s specifications match those of the original wheels.
It is recommended you contact an authorized
tire dealer or original equipment dealer with any
questions you may have on tire specifications or
capability. Failure to use equivalent replacement tires may adversely affect the safety, handling, and ride of your vehicle.
WARNING!
or death. Use only the tire and wheel sizes
with load ratings approved for your vehicle.
• Never use a tire with a smaller load index
or capacity, other than what was originally
equipped on your vehicle. Using a tire with
a smaller load index could result in tire
overloading and failure. You could lose
control and have a collision.
• Failure to equip your vehicle with tires
having adequate speed capability can result in sudden tire failure and loss of vehicle control.
WARNING!
• Do not use a tire, wheel size, load rating, or
speed rating other than that specified for
your vehicle. Some combinations of unapproved tires and wheels may change suspension dimensions and performance
characteristics, resulting in changes to
steering, handling, and braking of your
vehicle. This can cause unpredictable handling and stress to steering and suspension
components. You could lose control and
have a collision resulting in serious injury
186
CAUTION!
Replacing original tires with tires of a different size may result in false speedometer and
odometer readings.
Tire Types
All Season Tires — If Equipped
All Season tires provide traction for all seasons
(Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter). Traction
levels may vary between different all season
tires. All season tires can be identified by the
M+S, M&S, M/S or MS designation on the tire
sidewall. Use all season tires only in sets of four;
failure to do so may adversely affect the safety
and handling of your vehicle.
Summer Or Three Season Tires —
If Equipped
Summer tires provide traction in both wet and
dry conditions, and are not intended to be
driven in snow or on ice. If your vehicle is
equipped with Summer tires, be aware these
tires are not designed for Winter or cold driving
conditions. Install Winter tires on your vehicle
when ambient temperatures are less than 40°F
(5°C) or if roads are covered with ice or snow.
For more information, contact an authorized
dealer.
Summer tires do not contain the all season
designation or mountain/snowflake symbol on
the tire sidewall. Use Summer tires only in sets
of four; failure to do so may adversely affect the
safety and handling of your vehicle.
WARNING!
Do not use Summer tires in snow/ice conditions. You could lose vehicle control, resulting in severe injury or death. Driving too fast
for conditions also creates the possibility of
loss of vehicle control.
Snow Tires
Some areas of the country require the use of
snow tires during the Winter. Snow tires can be
identified by a “mountain/snowflake” symbol
on the tire sidewall.
If you need snow tires,
select tires equivalent in
size and type to the
original
equipment
tires. Use snow tires
only in sets of four; failure to do so may adversely affect the safety
and handling of your vehicle.
Snow tires generally have lower speed ratings
than what was originally equipped with your
vehicle and should not be operated at sustained
speeds over 75 mph (120 km/h). For speeds
above 75 mph (120 km/h) refer to original
equipment or an authorized tire dealer for recommended safe operating speeds, loading and
cold tire inflation pressures.
Spare Tire Matching Original Equipped Tire
And Wheel — If Equipped
While studded tires improve performance on
ice, skid and traction capability on wet or dry
surfaces may be poorer than that of nonstudded tires. Some states prohibit studded
tires; therefore, local laws should be checked
before using these tire types.
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.
Spare Tires — If Equipped
Compact Spare Tire — If Equipped
For vehicles equipped with Tire Service Kit instead of a spare tire, please refer to “Tire Service
Kit” in “In Case Of Emergency” in the Owner’s
Manual for further information.
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.
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.
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.

tire failure and loss of vehicle control.
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
limited 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 using mild (neutral Ph) soap and water
to maintain their luster and to prevent corrosion.
Wash wheels with the same soap solution recommended for the body of the vehicle and
remember to always wash when the surfaces are
not hot to the touch.
Your wheels are susceptible to deterioration
caused by salt, sodium chloride, magnesium
chloride, calcium chloride, etc., and other road
chemicals used to melt ice or control dust on
dirt roads. Use a soft cloth or sponge and mild
soap to wipe away promptly. Do not use harsh
chemicals or a stiff brush. They can damage the
wheel’s protective coating that helps keep them
from corroding and tarnishing.
CAUTION!
Avoid products or automatic car washes that
use acidic solutions or strong alkaline additives or harsh brushes. Many aftermarket
wheel cleaners and automatic car washes
may damage the wheel's protective finish.
Such damage is not covered by the New
Vehicle Limited Warranty. Only car wash
soap, Mopar Wheel Cleaner or equivalent is
recommended.
When cleaning extremely dirty wheels including
excessive brake dust, care must be taken in the
selection of tire and wheel cleaning chemicals
and equipment to prevent damage to the
wheels. Mopar Wheel Treatment or Mopar
Chrome Cleaner or their equivalent is recommended or select a non-abrasive, non-acidic
cleaner for aluminum or chrome wheels.
CAUTION!
Do not use scouring pads, steel wool, a bristle
brush, metal polishes or oven cleaner. These
products may damage the wheel's protective
finish. Such damage is not covered by the
New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Only car wash
soap, Mopar Wheel Cleaner or equivalent is
recommended.
NOTE:
If you intend parking or storing your vehicle for
an extended period after cleaning the wheels
with wheel cleaner, drive your vehicle and apply
the brakes to remove the water droplets from the
brake components. This activity will remove the
red rust on the brake rotors and prevent vehicle
vibration when braking.

QUALITY GRADES
The following tire grading categories
were established by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The
specific grade rating assigned by the
tire's manufacturer in each category is
shown on the sidewall of the tires on your
vehicle.
190
All passenger vehicle tires must conform
to Federal safety requirements in addition to these grades.
Treadwear
The Treadwear grade is a comparative
rating, based on the wear rate of the tire
when tested under controlled conditions
on a specified government test course.
For example, a tire graded 150 would
wear one and one-half times as well on
the government course as a tire graded
100. The relative performance of tires
depends upon the actual conditions of
their use, however, and may depart significantly from the norm due to variations in driving habits, service practices,
and differences in road characteristics
and climate.
pavement, as measured under controlled conditions on specified government test surfaces of asphalt and concrete. A tire marked C may have poor
traction performance.
WARNING!
The traction grade assigned to this tire
is based on straight-ahead braking
traction tests, and does not include
acceleration, cornering, hydroplaning,
or peak traction characteristics.
Temperature Grades
Traction Grades
The Temperature grades are A (the highest), B, and C, representing the tire's
resistance to the generation of heat and
its ability to dissipate heat, when tested
under controlled conditions on a specified indoor laboratory test wheel.
The Traction grades, from highest to lowest, are AA, A, B, and C. These grades
represent the tire's ability to stop on wet
Sustained high temperature can cause
the material of the tire to degenerate and
reduce tire life, and excessive tempera-
ture can lead to sudden tire failure. The
grade C corresponds to a level of performance, which all passenger vehicle tires
must meet under the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 109. Grades B
and A represent higher levels of performance on the laboratory test wheel, than
the minimum required by law.
WARNING!
The temperature grade for this tire is
established for a tire that is properly
inflated and not overloaded. Excessive
speed, under-inflation, or excessive
loading, either separately or in combination, can cause heat buildup and
possible tire failure.

**Use only your authorized dealer recommended lug nuts/bolts and clean or remove any
dirt or oil before tightening.
Proper lug nut/bolt torque is very important to
ensure that the wheel is properly mounted to the
vehicle. Any time a wheel has been removed
and reinstalled on the vehicle, the lug nuts/bolts
should be torqued using a properly calibrated
torque wrench using a high quality six sided
(hex) deep wall socket.
Inspect the wheel mounting surface prior to
mounting the tire and remove any corrosion or
loose particles.

CYBERSECURITY
Your vehicle may be a connected vehicle and
may be equipped with both wired and wireless
networks. These networks allow your vehicle to
send and receive information. This information
allows systems and features in your vehicle to
function properly.
Your vehicle may be equipped with certain security features to reduce the risk of unauthorized and unlawful access to vehicle systems and
wireless communications. Vehicle software
technology continues to evolve over time and
FCA US LLC, working with its suppliers, evaluates and takes appropriate steps as needed.
Similar to a computer or other devices, your
vehicle may require software updates to improve the usability and performance of your
systems or to reduce the potential risk of unauthorized and unlawful access to your vehicle
systems.
The risk of unauthorized and unlawful access to
your vehicle systems may still exist, even if the
most recent version of vehicle software (such as
Uconnect software) is installed.
WARNING!
• It is not possible to know or to predict all of
the possible outcomes if your vehicle’s systems are breached. It may be possible that
vehicle systems, including safety related
systems, could be impaired or a loss of
vehicle control could occur that may result
in an accident involving serious injury or
death.
• ONLY insert media (e.g., USB, SD card, or
CD) into your vehicle if it came from a
trusted source. Media of unknown origin
could possibly contain malicious software,
and if installed in your vehicle, it may
increase the possibility for vehicle systems
to be breached.
• As always, if you experience unusual vehicle behavior, take your vehicle to your
nearest authorized dealer immediately.
NOTE:
• FCA US LLC or your dealer may contact you
directly regarding software updates.
• To help further improve vehicle security and
minimize the potential risk of a security
breach, vehicle owners should:
– Routinely check www.driveuconnect.com/
support/software-update.html (U.S. Residents) or www.driveuconnect.ca (Canadian Residents) to learn about available
Uconnect software updates.
– Only connect and use trusted media devices (e.g. personal mobile phones,
USBs, CDs).
Privacy of any wireless and wired communications cannot be assured. Third parties may unlawfully intercept information and private communications without your consent. For further
information, refer to ”Data Collection & Privacy”
in your Uconnect Owner’s Manual Supplement
or “Onboard Diagnostic System (OBD II) Cybersecurity” in “Getting To Know Your Instrument
Panel” in your Owner’s Manual.
