The driver’s primary responsibility is the safe operation of the vehicle. Driving while
distracted can result in loss of vehicle control, resulting in a collision and personal
injury. Chrysler Group LLC strongly recommends that the driver use extreme caution
when using any device or feature that may take their attention off the road. Use of any
electrical devices such as cell phones, computers, portable radios, vehicle navigation
or other devices by the driver while the vehicle is moving is dangerous and could lead
to a serious collision. Texting while driving is also dangerous and should never be
done while the vehicle is moving. If you find yourself unable to devote your full
attention to vehicle operation, pull off the road to a safe location and stop your
vehicle. Some States or Provinces prohibit the use of cellular telephones or texting
while driving. It is always the driver’s responsibility to comply with all local laws.
DRIVING AND ALCOHOL
Drunken driving is one of the most frequent causes of collisions. Your driving ability
can be seriously impaired with blood alcohol levels far below the legal minimum. If
you are drinking, don’t drive. Ride with a designated non-drinking driver, call a cab,
a friend, or use public transportation.
WARNING
Driving after drinking can lead to a collision. Your perceptions are less sharp,
your reflexes are slower, and your judgment is impaired when you have been
drinking. Never drink and then drive.

INTRODUCTION/WELCOME
WELCOME FROM CHRYSLER GROUP LLC
Congratulations on selecting your new Chrysler Group LLC vehicle. Be assured that it
represents precision workmanship, distinctive styling, and high quality - all essentials that are traditional to our vehicles.
Your new Chrysler Group LLC vehicle has characteristics to enhance the driver's
control under some driving conditions. These are to assist the driver and are never a
substitute for attentive driving. They can never take the driver's place. Always drive
carefully.
Your new vehicle has many features for the comfort and convenience of you and your
passengers. Some of these should not be used when driving because they take your
eyes from the road or your attention from driving. Never text while driving or take your
eyes more than momentarily off the road.
This guide illustrates and describes the operation of features and equipment that are
either standard or optional on this vehicle. This guide may also include a description
of features and equipment that are no longer available or were not ordered on this
vehicle. Please disregard any features and equipment described in this guide that are
not available on this vehicle. Chrysler Group LLC reserves the right to make changes
in design and specifications and/or make additions to or improvements to its
products without imposing any obligation upon itself to install them on products
previously manufactured.
This User Guide has been prepared to help you quickly become acquainted with the
important features of your vehicle. It contains most things you will need to operate
and maintain the vehicle, including emergency information.
The DVD includes a computer application containing detailed owner's information
which can be viewed on a personal computer or MAC computer. The multimedia DVD
also includes videos which can be played on any standard DVD player (including the
Uconnect® Touch-Screen Radios). Additional DVD operational information is located
on the back of the DVD sleeve.
For complete owner information, refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD in the owner’s
kit provided at the time of new vehicle purchase. For your convenience, the information
contained on the DVD may also be printed and saved for future reference.
Chrysler Group LLC is committed to protecting our environment and natural resources. By converting from paper to electronic delivery for the majority of the user
information for your vehicle, together we greatly reduce the demand for tree-based
products and lessen the stress on our environment.

the doors. To remove the emergency key, slide the button at the top of the Key Fob
sideways with your thumb and then pull the key out with your other hand.
WARNING!
• Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle.
Allowing children to be in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a number of
reasons. A child or others could be severely injured or killed. Children should
be warned not to touch the parking brake, brake pedal, or the shift lever. Do not
leave the Key Fob in or near the vehicle, or in a location accessible to children,
and do not leave a vehicle equipped with Keyless Enter-N-G0™ in the ACC or
ON/RUN mode. A child could start the vehicle, operate power windows, other
controls, or move the vehicle.
• Do not leave children or animals inside parked vehicles in hot weather. Interior
heat build-up may cause them to be severely injured or killed.
10

starter will disengage automatically after 10 seconds.
• To stop the cranking of the engine
prior to the engine starting, press the button again.
NOTE:
In case the ignition switch does not change with the push of a button, the RKE
transmitter (Key Fob) may have a low or dead battery. In this situation a back up
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.
Stopping
• Bring the vehicle to a complete stop.
• Place the shift lever in the PARK position.
• Press the ENGINE START/STOP button once. The ignition switch will return to the

• The vehicle must be started with the Key Fob after two consecutive timeouts.
12
GETTING STARTED
WARNING!
• Do not start or run an engine in a closed garage or confined area. Exhaust gas
contains Carbon Monoxide (CO) which is odorless and colorless. Carbon
Monoxide is poisonous and can cause you or others to be severely injured or
killed when inhaled.
• Keep Key Fob transmitters away from children. Operation of the Remote Start
System, windows, door locks or other controls could cause you and others to be
severely injured or killed.
THEFT ALARM
To Arm:
• Press the Key Fob LOCK button or the power door lock switch while the door is
open.
To Disarm:
• Press the Key Fob UNLOCK button or turn the ignition to the ON/RUN position.
SEAT BELT
• Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly.
• Position the lap belt across your thighs, below your abdomen. To remove slack in
the lap portion, pull up a bit 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 belt reduces the risk of
sliding under the belt in a collision.
• Position the shoulder belt on your chest so that it is comfortable and not resting
on your neck. The retractor will withdraw any slack in the belt.
• 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 belt that is too loose will not protect you properly. In a sudden stop you could
move too far forward, increasing the possibility of injury. Wear your seat belt
snugly.
• A frayed or torn belt could rip apart in a collision and leave you with no protection.
Inspect the belt system periodically, checking for cuts, frays, or loose parts.
Damaged parts must be replaced immediately. Do not disassemble or modify the
system. Seat belt assemblies must be replaced after a collision if they have been
damaged (bent retractor, torn webbing, etc.).
• A deployed air bag must be replaced immediately.
13
GETTING STARTED
WARNING!
In a collision, you and your passengers can suffer much greater injuries if you are
not buckled up properly. 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.
SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) — AIR BAGS
• This vehicle has Advanced Front Air Bags for both the driver and right front
passenger as a supplement to the seat belt restraint system. The Advanced Front
Air Bags will not deploy in every type of collision.
• Advanced Front Air Bags are designed to provide additional protection by
supplementing the seat belts in certain frontal collisions depending on several
factors, including the severity and type of collision. Advanced Front Air Bags are
not expected to reduce the risk of injury in rear, side, or rollover collisions.
is not on during starting, stays on, or turns on
• If the Air Bag Warning Light
while driving, have the vehicle serviced by an authorized service center immediately.
• Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details regarding the
Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)
WARNING!
• Relying on the air bags alone could lead to more severe injuries in a collision.
The air bags work with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In some
collisions, the air bags won't deploy at all. Always wear your seat belts even
though you have air bags.
• Being too close to the steering wheel or instrument panel during Advanced
Front Air Bag deployment could cause serious injury, including death. Air bags
need room to inflate. Sit back, comfortably extending your arms to reach the
steering wheel or instrument panel.
• 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.
• After any collision, the vehicle should be taken to an authorized dealer
immediately.
14
GETTING STARTED
CHILD RESTRAINTS
• Children 12 years and under should ride properly buckled up in a rear seat, if
available. According to crash statistics, children are safer when properly restrained
in the rear seats rather than in the front.
• Every state in the United States and all Canadian provinces require that small
children ride in proper restraint systems. This is the law, and you can be
prosecuted for ignoring it.
NOTE:
• For additional information, refer to www.seatcheck.org or call 1–866–SEAT-CHECK
(1–866–732–8243).
• Canadian residents, should refer to Transport Canada’s website for additional
informationhttp://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/roadsafety/safedrivers-childsafety-index-53.htm.
Installing The LATCH - Compatible Child Restraint System
• Your vehicle’s second row passenger seats are equipped with the child restraint
anchorage system called LATCH, which stands for Lower Anchors and Tether for
CHildren. LATCH child restraint anchorage systems are installed in the rear seat
outboard positions.
• LATCH equipped seating positions have both lower anchor bars, located at the
back of the seat cushion, and tether strap anchorages, located behind the seat
back.
Installing The Lower Attachments:
• The vehicle lower anchorages are round bars located at the rear of the seat cushion
where it meets the seatback. The rear seat lower anchors can be readily identified
located on the seatback directly above the anchorages and are
by the symbol
just visible when you lean into the rear seat to install the child restraint.
• Loosen the child seat adjusters on the
lower straps and on the tether strap so
that you can attach the hooks or connectors to the vehicle anchors more
easily.
• Attach the lower hooks or connectors
over the top of the seatcover material.
• Then tighten the straps as you push
the child restraint rearward and downward into the seat.
15
GETTING STARTED
Tether Anchorage Points At The Right And Center Front Seat (Regular Cab - All Seats):
• Place the child restraint on the seat and adjust the tether strap so that it will reach over
the seat back under the head restraint to the tether anchor directly behind the seat.
• Lift the cover (if equipped), and attach
the hook to the square opening in the
sheet metal.
• Install the child restraint and remove
the slack in the tether strap according
to the manufacturer's instructions.
Child Restraint Installation Sequence (Mega Cab® - Rear Seats):
• Place a child restraint on each outboard rear seat and adjust the tether strap so that it
will reach under the head restraint to the tether anchor directly behind the seat.
• Lift the cover, and attach the hook to the square opening in the sheet metal.
• Install the child restraint and remove the slack in the tether strap according to the
manufacturer's instructions.
Child Restraints Installation Sequence (Quad Cab®/Crew Cab - Rear Seats)
The top tether anchorages in this vehicle are tether strap loops located between the rear
glass and the back of the rear seat. There is a tether strap loop located behind each seating
position. Follow the steps below to attach the tether strap of the child restraint.
Right or Left Outboard Seats:
1. Raise the head restraint and reach between the rear seat and rear glass to access
the tether strap loop.

2. Place a child restraint on the seat and adjust the tether strap so that it will reach
over the seat back, under the head restraint, through the tether strap loop behind
the seat and over to the tether strap loop behind the center seat.
3. Pass the tether strap hook under the head restraint behind the child seat, through
the tether strap loop behind the seat and over to the center tether strap loop.
4. Attach the hook to the center tether
strap loop (see diagram). Tighten the
tether strap according to the child
seat manufacturer’s instructions.
NOTE:
If there are child seats in both of the
outboard (left and right) seating positions, the tether strap hooks of both child
seats should be connected to the center
tether strap loop. This is the correct way
to tether two outboard child seats.
Tether Strap Through Outboard Tether Strap

Center Seat:
1. Raise the head restraint and reach
between the rear seat and rear glass to
access the tether strap loop.
2. Place a child restraint on the seat and

will loosen with time, so check the belt occasionally, and pull it tight if necessary.
• Route the tether strap to provide the most direct path for the strap between the
anchor and the child seat, preferably between the head restraint posts underneath
the head restraint.
18
GETTING STARTED
• Attach the tether strap hook of the child restraint to the tether anchor and remove
slack in the tether strap according to the child restraint manufacturer’s
instructions.
NOTE:
Ensure that the tether strap does not slip into the opening between the seatbacks as
you remove slack in the strap.
WARNING!
• In a collision, an unrestrained child, even a tiny baby, can become a projectile
inside the vehicle. The force required to hold even an infant on your lap could
become so great that you could not hold the child, no matter how strong you
are. The child and others could be severely injured or killed. Any child riding in
your vehicle should be in a proper restraint for the child's size.
• Improper installation of a child restraint to the LATCH anchorages can lead to
failure of an infant or child restraint. The child could be severely injured or
killed. Follow the manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or
child restraint.
• An incorrectly anchored tether strap could lead to increased head motion and
possible injury to the child. Use only the anchor positions directly behind the
child seat to secure a child restraint top tether strap.
• Rearward-facing child seats must never be used in the front seat of a vehicle
with a front passenger air bag. An air bag deployment could cause severe injury
or death to infants in this position.

23
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
ENGINE BREAK-IN RECOMMENDATIONS
• A long break-in period is not required for the engine and drivetrain (transmission
and axle) in your vehicle.
• Drive moderately during the first 300 miles (500 km). After the initial 60 miles
(100 km), speeds up to 50 or 55 mph (80 or 90 km/h) are desirable.
• While cruising, brief full-throttle acceleration within the limits of local traffic laws
contributes to a good break-in. Wide-open throttle acceleration in low gear can be
detrimental and should be avoided.
• The engine oil installed in the engine at the factory is a high-quality energy
conserving type lubricant. Oil changes should be consistent with anticipated
climate conditions under which vehicle operations will occur. For the recommended viscosity and quality grades, refer to “Maintaining Your Vehicle”.
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 to an engine problem or malfunction.
CAUTION!
Never use Non-Detergent Oil or Straight Mineral Oil in the engine or damage may
result.
DIESEL ENGINE BREAK-IN RECOMMENDATIONS

a safe location.
• The 9-1-1 Call system is embedded into the vehicle’s electrical system. Do not
add any aftermarket electrical equipment to the vehicle’s electrical system.
This may prevent your vehicle from sending a signal to initiate an emergency
call. To avoid interference that can cause the 9-1-1 Call system to fail, never
add aftermarket equipment (e.g., two-way mobile radio, CB radio, data
recorder, etc.) to your vehicle’s electrical system or modify the antennas on
your vehicle. IF YOUR VEHICLE LOSES BATTERY POWER FOR ANY REASON

MEDIA HUB – PLAYING iPod/USB/MP3 DEVICES
• There are many ways to play music from iPod®/MP3 players or USB devices
through your vehicle's sound system.
Audio Jack (AUX)
• The AUX allows a portable device, such as an MP3 player or an iPod®, to be
plugged into the radio and utilize the vehicle’s sound system, using a 3.5 mm
audio cable, to amplify the source and play through the vehicle speakers.
• Touching the Media soft-key then choosing AUX source will change the mode to
auxiliary device if the audio jack is connected, allowing the music from your
portable device to be heard through the vehicle's speakers. In order to activate the
AUX, plug in the audio jack.
• The functions of the portable device are controlled using the device buttons. The
volume may be controlled using the radio or portable device.
• To route the audio cable out of the center console, use the access cut out in the
front of the console.
USB Port
• Connect your iPod® or compatible device using a USB cable into the USB Port.
USB Memory sticks with audio files can also be used. Then, audio from the device
can be played on the vehicles sound system while providing metadata (artist, track
title, album, etc.) information on the radio display.
• When connected, the iPod®/compatible USB device can be controlled using the
radio or Steering Wheel Audio Controls to play, skip to the next or previous track,
browse, and list the contents.
• The iPod® battery charges when plugged into the USB port (if supported by the
specific device).
• To route the USB/iPod® cable out of the center console, use the access cut out.
61
ELECTRONICS
NOTE:
When connecting your iPod® device for the first time, the system may take several
minutes to read your music, depending on the number of files. For example, the
system will take approximately 5 minutes for every 1000 songs loaded on the device.
Also during the reading process, the Shuffle and Browse functions will be disabled.
This process is needed to ensure the full use of your iPod® features and only happens
the first time it is connected. After the first time, the reading process of your iPod®
will take considerably less time unless changes are made or new songs are added to
the playlist.
• The USB port supports certain Mini, Classic, Nano, Touch, and iPhone® devices.
The USB port also supports playing music from compatible external USB Mass
Storage Class memory devices. Some iPod® software versions may not fully
support the USB port features. Please visit Apple’s website for iPod® software
updates.
SD Card
• Play songs stored on an SD card inserted into the SD card slot.
• Song playback can be controlled using the radio or Steering Wheel Audio Controls
to play, skip to the next or previous track, browse, and list the contents.
Bluetooth® Streaming Audio
• If equipped with Uconnect® Voice Command, your Bluetooth-equipped iPod®
devices, cell phones or other media players, may also be able to stream music to
your vehicle's sound system. Your connected device must be Bluetoothcompatible, and paired with your system (see Uconnect® Phone for pairing
instructions). You can access the music from your connected Bluetooth® device by
touching the Bluetooth® soft-key while in Media mode.

• There are many ways to play music from iPod®/MP3 players or USB devices
through your vehicle's sound system.
79
ELECTRONICS
Audio Jack (AUX)
• The AUX allows a portable device, such as an MP3 player or an iPod®, to be
plugged into the radio and utilize the vehicle’s sound system, using a 3.5 mm
audio cable, to amplify the source and play through the vehicle speakers.
• Touching the Media soft-key then choosing AUX source will change the mode to
auxiliary device if the audio jack is connected, allowing the music from your
portable device to be heard through the vehicle's speakers. In order to activate the
AUX, plug in the audio jack.
• The functions of the portable device are controlled using the device buttons. The
volume may be controlled using the radio or portable device.
• To route the audio cable out of the center console, use the access cut out in the
front of the console.
USB Port
• Connect your iPod® or compatible device using a USB cable into the USB Port.
USB Memory sticks with audio files can also be used. Then, audio from the device
can be played on the vehicles sound system while providing metadata (artist, track
title, album, etc.) information on the radio display.
• When connected, the iPod®/compatible USB device can be controlled using the
radio or Steering Wheel Audio Controls to play, skip to the next or previous track,
browse, and list the contents.
• The iPod® battery charges when plugged into the USB port (if supported by the
specific device).
• To route the USB/iPod® cable out of the center console, use the access cut out.
NOTE:
When connecting your iPod® device for the first time, the system may take several
minutes to read your music, depending on the number of files. For example, the
system will take approximately five minutes for every 1000 songs loaded on the
device. Also during the reading process, the Shuffle and Browse functions will be
disabled. This process is needed to ensure the full use of your iPod® features and
only happens the first time it is connected. After the first time, the reading process
of your iPod® will take considerably less time unless changes are made or new songs
are added to the playlist.
• The USB port supports certain Mini, Classic, Nano, Touch, and iPhone® devices.
The USB port also supports playing music from compatible external USB Mass
Storage Class memory devices. Some iPod® software versions may not fully
support the USB port features. Please visit Apple’s website for iPod® software
updates.
SD Card
• Play songs stored on an SD card inserted into the SD card slot.
• Song playback can be controlled using the radio or Steering Wheel Audio Controls
to play, skip to the next or previous track, browse, and list the contents.

ELECTRONICS
Bluetooth® Streaming Audio
• If equipped with Uconnect® Voice Command, your Bluetooth-equipped iPod®
devices, cell phones or other media players, may also be able to stream music to
your vehicle's sound system. Your connected device must be Bluetoothcompatible, and paired with your system (see Uconnect® Phone for pairing
instructions). You can access the music from your connected Bluetooth® device by
touching the Bluetooth® soft-key while in Media mode.

DIESEL
DIESEL ENGINE BREAK-IN RECOMMENDATIONS
• The Cummins® turbocharged diesel engine does not require a break-in period due
to its construction. Normal operation is allowed, providing the following recommendations are followed:
• Warm up the engine before placing it under load.
• Do not operate the engine at idle for prolonged periods.
• Use the appropriate transmission gear to prevent engine lugging.
• Observe vehicle oil pressure and temperature indicators.
• Check the coolant and oil levels frequently.
• Vary throttle position at highway speeds when carrying or towing significant
weight.
NOTE:
Light duty operation such as light trailer towing or no load operation will extend the
time before the engine is at full efficiency. Reduced fuel economy and power may be
seen at this time.
• Because of the construction of the Cummins® turbocharged diesel engine, engine
run-in is enhanced by loaded operating conditions which allow the engine parts to
achieve final finish and fit during the first 6,000 miles (10 000 km).
DIESEL ENGINE STARTING PROCEDURES
Engine Block Heater
• For ambient temperatures below 0°F (-18°C), engine block heater usage is
recommended.
• For ambient temperatures below –20°F (-29°C), engine block heater usage is
required.
• The engine block heater cord is routed under the hood to the right side and can be
located just behind the grille near the headlamp.
• Connect the heater cord to a ground-fault interrupter protected 110–115 volt AC
electrical outlet with a grounded, three-wire extension cord.
NOTE:
The block heater will require 110 volts AC and 6.5 amps to activate the heater
element.
• The block heater must be plugged in at least one hour to have an adequate
warming effect on the coolant.
Water In Fuel Message
indicator appears in the cluster and a chime
• If a Water In Fuel message or

light appears
• In extremely cold weather below 0°F (-18°C) it may be beneficial to cycle the
manifold heaters twice before attempting to start the engine. This can be
accomplished by turning the ignition OFF for at least five seconds and then back
ON after the “Wait To Start Light” has turned off, but before the engine is started.
However, excessive cycling of the manifold heaters will result in damage to the
heater elements or reduced battery voltage.
• Refer to the Owner's Manual Diesel Supplement on the DVD for further details.
Engine Idling
• Avoid prolonged engine idling. Long periods of idling may be harmful to your
engine because combustion chamber temperatures can drop so low that the fuel
may not burn completely.
• Incomplete combustion allows carbon and varnish to form on piston rings, engine
valves, and injector nozzles. Also, the unburned fuel can enter the crankcase,
diluting the oil and causing rapid wear to the engine.
• If the engine is allowed to idle, under some conditions the idle speed may increase
to 900 RPM then return to normal idle speed. This is normal operation.
WARNING!
Remember to disconnect the cord before driving. Damage to the 110–115 volt
electrical cord could cause electrocution.

DIESEL EXHAUST FLUID
• Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) sometimes known simply by the name of its active
component, UREA—is a key component of selective catalytic reduction (SCR)
systems, which help diesel vehicles meet stringent emission regulations. DEF is a
liquid reducing agent that reacts with engine exhaust in the presence of a catalyst
to convert smog-forming nitrogen oxides (NOx) into harmless nitrogen and water
vapor.
• Your vehicle is equipped with a Selective Catalytic Reduction system in order to
meet the very stringent diesel emissions standards required by the Environmental
Protection Agency. Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) is the first and only
technology in decades to be as good for the environment as it is good for business
and vehicle performance.
• The purpose of the SCR system is to reduce levels of NOx (oxides of nitrogen
emitted from engines) that are harmful to our health and the environment to an
almost near-zero level. Small quantities of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) are injected
into the exhaust upstream of a catalyst where, when vaporized, convert smogforming nitrogen oxides (NOx) into harmless nitrogen (N2) and water vapor (H2O),
two natural components of the air we breathe. You can operate with the comfort
that your vehicle is contributing to a cleaner, healthier world environment for this
and generations to come.
System Overview
• This vehicle is equipped with a Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) injection system and
a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) catalyst to meet the emission requirements.
• The DEF injection system consists of the following components:
• DEF tank
• DEF pump
• DEF injector
• Electronically-heated DEF lines
• DEF control module
• NOx sensors
• NH3 sensor
• Temperature sensors
• SCR catalyst
• The DEF injection system and SCR catalyst enable the achievement of diesel
emissions requirements; while maintaining outstanding fuel economy, drivability,
torque and power ratings.
NOTE:
• Your vehicle is equipped with a DEF injection system. You may occasionally hear
an audible clicking noise. This is normal operation.
• The DEF pump will run for a period of time after engine shutdown to purge the DEF
system. This is normal operation.
115
DIESEL
Diesel Exhaust Fluid Storage
• Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is considered a very stable product with a long shelf
life. If DEF is kept in temperatures between 10° to 90°F (-12° to 32°C), it will last
a minimum of one year.
• DEF is subject to freezing at the lowest temperatures. For example, DEF may
freeze at temperatures at or below 12° F (-11° C). The system has been designed
to operate in this environment.
NOTE:
When working with DEF, it is important to know that:
• Any containers or parts that come into contact with DEF must be DEF compatible
(plastic or stainless steel). Copper, brass, aluminum, iron or non-stainless steel
should be avoided as they are subject to corrosion by DEF.
• If DEF is spilled, it should be wiped up completely.
Adding Diesel Exhaust Fluid
• The DEF gauge (located in the instrument cluster) will display the level of DEF
remaining in the tank.
NOTE:
Driving conditions (altitude, vehicle speed, load, etc.) will effect the amount of DEF
that is used in your vehicle.
DEF Fill Procedure
• Remove cap from DEF tank (located on drivers side of the vehicle).
• Insert DEF container into DEF tank.
• Reinstall cap onto DEF tank.
• Refer to your Owner's Manual on the
DVD for further details.
CAUTION!
• To avoid DEF spillage and overfilling, do not “top off” the DEF tank after filling.
• When DEF is spilled, clean the area immediately with water or a mild solvent.

possible. While driving, ease up on the accelerator. Adapt your speed and driving
to the prevailing road conditions. To improve the vehicle's traction when starting
off in deep snow, sand or gravel, it may be desirable to switch the ESC system off.
- Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Light
• Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly, when cold and
inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the
vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a different
size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you
should determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires.)
• As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a Tire Pressure
Monitoring System (TPMS) which display in the Electronic Vehicle Information
Center (EVIC) when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated.
Accordingly, when the low tire pressure EVIC display illuminates, you should stop
and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure.
Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can
lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life,
and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability.
• IF THE LIGHT STARTS FLASHING INDICATING A LOW TIRE PRESSURE, ADJUST THE AIR
PRESSURE IN THE LOW TIRE TO THE AIR PRESSURE SHOWN ON THE VEHICLE PLACARD
OR TIRE INFLATION PRESSURE LABEL LOCATED ON THE DRIVER'S DOOR. NOTE: AFTER
INFLATION, THE VEHICLE MAY NEED TO BE DRIVEN FOR 20 MINUTES BEFORE THE
FLASHING LIGHT WILL TURN OFF.
• Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the
driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not
reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low EVIC display.
117
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction indicator to
indicate when the system is not operating properly. The TPMS malfunction
indicator is combined with the low tire pressure telltale. When the system detects
a malfunction, the telltale will flash for approximately one minute and then remain
continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue each time the vehicle is
restarted as long as the malfunction exists.
• When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may not be able to
detect or signal low tire pressure as intended. TPMS malfunctions may occur for a
variety of reasons, including the installation of replacement or alternate tires or
wheels on the vehicle that prevent the TPMS from functioning properly. Always
check the TPMS malfunction telltale after replacing one or more tires or wheels on
your vehicle, to ensure that the replacement or alternate tires and wheels allow the
TPMS to continue to function properly.
NOTE:
Tire pressures change by approximately 1 psi (7 kPa) per 12° F (7° C) of air
temperature change. Keep this in mind when checking tire pressure inside a garage,
especially in the Winter. Example: If garage temperature is 68°F (20°C) and the
outside temperature is 32°F (0°C), then the cold tire inflation pressure should be
increased by 3 psi (21 kPa), which equals 1 psi (7 kPa) for every 12°F (7°C) for this
outside temperature condition.
CAUTION!
The TPMS has been optimized for the original equipment tires and wheels. TPMS
pressures and warning have been established for the tire size equipped on your vehicle.
Undesirable system operation or sensor damage may result when using replacement
equipment that is not of the same size, type, and/or style. Aftermarket wheels can cause
sensor damage. Do not use tire sealant from a can, or balance beads if your vehicle is
equipped with a TPMS, as damage to the sensors may result.
- Engine Temperature Warning Light
• This light warns of an overheated engine condition.
• If the light turns on and a warning chime sounds while driving, safely pull over and
stop the vehicle. If the A/C system is on, turn it off. Also, shift the transmission into
NEUTRAL and idle the vehicle. If the temperature reading does not return to
normal, turn the engine off immediately.
• We recommend that you do not operate the vehicle or engine damage will occur.
Have the vehicle serviced immediately.
WARNING!
A hot engine cooling system is dangerous. You or others could be badly burned by
steam or boiling coolant. You may want to call an authorized dealer for service if
your vehicle overheats.

119
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
- Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) Light
• This light informs you of a problem with the Electronic Throttle Control (ETC)
system.
• If a problem is detected, the light will come on while the engine is running. Cycle
the ignition when the vehicle has completely stopped and the shift lever is placed
in the PARK position; the light should turn off.
• If the light remains lit with the engine running, your vehicle will usually be
drivable; however, see an authorized service center immediately. If the light is
flashing when the engine is running, immediate service is required and you may
experience reduced performance, an elevated/rough idle or engine stall and your
vehicle may require towing.
- Air Bag Warning Light
• If the light is not on during starting, stays on, or turns on while driving, have the
vehicle serviced by an authorized service center immediately.
- SERV (Service) 4WD Indicator Light
• The SERV 4WD light monitors the electric shift four-wheel drive system. If the

120
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
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 engine idle speed.
NOTE:
There are steps that you can take to slow down an impending overheat condition:
• If your air conditioner (A/C) is on, turn it off. The A/C system adds heat to the
engine cooling system and turning the A/C off can help remove this heat.
• You can also turn the temperature control to maximum heat, the mode control to
floor and the blower control to high. This allows the heater core to act as a
supplement to the radiator and aids in removing heat from the engine cooling
system.
CAUTION!
Driving with a hot cooling system could damage your vehicle. If the temperature
gauge reads 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.
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.

JACKING AND TIRE CHANGING
4500/5500 Models
• These vehicles do not come equipped with a jack.
NOTE:
Jacking and tire changing on 4500/5500 models should be performed by an
authorized dealer, or knowledgeable service personnel with the appropriate heavy
duty equipment, like a tire service company.
Preparations For Jacking
1. Park the vehicle on a firm, level surface. Avoid ice or slippery areas.
2. Turn on the Hazard Warning flasher.
3. Set the parking brake.
4. Place the shift lever into PARK (automatic transmission) or REVERSE (manual
transmission). On 4-Wheel drive vehicles, shift the transfer case to the “4L” position.
5. Turn OFF the ignition.
• Block both the front and rear of the
wheel diagonally opposite the jacking
position. For example, if the right front
wheel is being changed, block the left
rear wheel.
NOTE:
Passengers should not remain in the vehicle when the vehicle is being jacked.
Jacking Instructions
Instructions
1. If equipped, remove the spare wheel,
jack, and tools from storage.
2. Using the wheel wrench, loosen, but
do not remove, the wheel nuts by
turning them counterclockwise one
turn while the wheel is still on the
ground.
122
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
3. When changing the front wheel, assemble the jack drive tube to the jack and
connect the drive tube to the extension tube. Place the jack under the axle as
close to the tire as possible with the drive tubes extending to the front. Connect
the jack tube extension and wheel wrench.
When changing a rear wheel, assemble the jack drive tube to the jack
and connect the drive tube to the
extension tube. Securely place the
jack under the sway bar bracket (unless both tires are flat on one side,
then place jack under shock bracket)
facing forward in vehicle. Connect
the jack tube extension and lug
wrench.
Before raising the wheel off the ground,
make sure that the jack will not damage
surrounding truck parts and adjust the
jack position as required.
NOTE:
If the jack will not lower by turning the
dial (thumbwheel) by hand, it may be
necessary to use the jack drive tube in
order to lower the jack.
4. By rotating the wheel wrench clockwise, raise the vehicle until the wheel
just clears the surface.
5. Remove the wheel nuts and pull the
wheel off. Install the spare wheel and
wheel nuts with the cone shaped end
of the nuts toward the wheel on single
rear wheel (SRW) models. On dual
rear wheel models (DRW) the lug nuts
are a two-piece assembly with a flat face. Lightly tighten the nuts. To avoid risk of
forcing the vehicle off the jack, do not fully tighten the nuts until the vehicle has
been lowered.
6. Using the wheel wrench, finish tightening the nuts using a crisscross pattern. The
correct nut tightness is 135 ft lbs (183 N·m) torque for single rear wheel (SRW)
models and 145 ft lbs (197 N·m) for dual rear wheel models. If in doubt about the
correct tightness, have them checked with a torque wrench by your authorized
dealer or at a service station.
7. Install wheel center cap (if equipped) and remove wheel blocks. Do not install
chrome or aluminum wheel center caps on the spare wheel. This may result in cap
damage.
123
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
8. Lower the jack to its fully closed position. If the jack will not lower by turning the
dial (thumbwheel) by hand, it may be necessary to use the jack drive tube in order
to lower the jack. Stow the replaced tire, jack, and tools as previously described.
9. Adjust the tire pressure when possible.
NOTE:
Do not oil wheel studs. For chrome wheels, do not substitute with chrome plated
wheel nuts.
Hub Caps/Wheel Covers
• The hub caps must be removed before raising the vehicle off the ground.
• For single rear-wheel (SRW) models, use the blade on the end of the lug wrench
to pry the hub cap off. Insert the blade end into the pry-off notch and carefully pop
off the hub cap with a back-and-forth motion.
• On models with dual rear wheels (DRW), you must first remove the hub caps. The
jack handle driver has a hook at one end that will fit in the pry off notch of the rear
hub caps. Position the hook and pull out on the ratchet firmly. The hub cap should
pop off. The wheel skins can now be removed. For the front hub cap use the blade
on the end of the lug wrench to pry the caps off. The wheel skin can now be
removed.
• You must use the flat end of the lug wrench to pry off the wheel skins. Insert the
flat tip completely and using a back-and-forth motion, loosen the wheel skin.
Repeat this procedure around the tire until the skin pops off.
• Replace the wheel skins first using a rubber mallet. When replacing the hub caps,
tilt the cap retainer over the lug nut bolt circle and strike the high side down with
a rubber mallet. Be sure that the hub caps and wheel skins are firmly seated
around the wheel.
Dual Rear Wheels
• Dual wheels are flat mounted, center piloted. The lug nuts are a two-piece
assembly. When the tires are being rotated or replaced, clean these lug nuts and
add two drops of oil at the interface between the hex and the washer.
• Slots in the wheels will assist in properly orienting the inner and outer
wheels. Align these slots when assembling the wheels for best access to the
tire valve on the inner wheel. The tires
of both dual wheels must be completely off the ground when tightening
to insure wheel centering and maximum wheel clamping.
124
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• Dual wheel models require a special heavy-duty lug nut tightening adapter
(included with the vehicle) to correctly tighten the lug nuts. Also, when it is
necessary to remove and install dual rear wheels, use a proper vehicle lifting
device.
NOTE:
When installing a spare tire (if equipped) as part of a dual rear wheel end
combination, the tire diameter of the two individual tires must be compared. If there
is a significant difference, the larger tire should be installed in a front location. The
correct direction of rotation for dual tire installations must also be observed.
These dual rear wheels should be tightened as follows:
1. Tighten the wheel nuts in the numbered sequence to a snug fit.
2. Retighten the wheel nuts in the same
sequence to the torques listed in the
table. Go through the sequence a second time to verify that specific torque
has been achieved. Retighten to
specifications at 100 miles (160 km)
and after 500 miles (800 km).
• It is recommended that wheel stud
nuts be kept torqued to specifications
at all times. Torque wheel stud nuts to
specifications at each lubrication
interval.
Wheel Nuts
• All wheel nuts should be tightened
occasionally to eliminate the possibility of wheel studs being sheared or the
bolt holes in the wheels becoming
elongated. This is especially important
during the first few hundred miles/
kilometers of operation to allow the wheel nuts to become properly set. All wheel
nuts should first be firmly seated against the wheel. The wheel nuts should then be
tightened to recommended torque. Tighten the wheel nuts to final torque in
increments. Progress around the bolt circle, tightening the wheel nut opposite to
the wheel nut just previously tightened until final torque is achieved. Recommended torques are shown in the following chart.

To Stow the Flat Or Spare
• Refer to Upfitters Body Builders Guide for information on stowing your spare tire
(if equipped).
CAUTION!
• Do not attempt to raise the vehicle by jacking on locations other than those
indicated in the Jacking Instructions for this vehicle.
• Use extreme caution when removing the front and rear center caps. Damage
can occur to the center cap and/or the wheel if screwdriver type tools are used.
A pulling motion, not a pry off motion, is recommended to remove the caps.
• Use a back and forth motion to remove the hub cap. Do not use a twisting
motion when removing the hub cap, damage to the hub cap; finish may occur.
• The rear hub caps on the dual rear wheel has two pry off notches. Make sure
that the hook of the jack handle driver is located squarely in the cap notch
before attempting to pull off.
126
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
WARNING!
• Do not attempt to change a tire on the side of the vehicle close to moving
traffic. Pull far enough off the road to avoid the danger of being hit when
operating the jack or changing the wheel.
• Being under a jacked-up vehicle is dangerous. The vehicle could slip off the
jack and fall on you. You could be crushed. Never put any part of your body
under a vehicle that is on a jack.
• Never start or run the engine while the vehicle is on a jack. if you need to get
under a raised vehicle, take it to a authorized dealer where it can be raised on
a lift.
• The jack is designed to use as a tool for changing tires only. The jack should not
be used to lift the vehicle for service purposes. The vehicle should be jacked on
a firm, level surface only. Avoid ice or slippery areas.
• After using the jack and tools, always reinstall them in the original carrier and
location. While driving you may experience abrupt stopping, rapid acceleration, or sharp turns. A loose jack, tools, bracket or other objects in the vehicle
may move around with force, resulting in serious injury.
• Carefully follow these tire changing warnings to help prevent personal injury or
damage to your vehicle:
• Always park on a firm, level surface as far from the edge of the roadway as
possible before raising the vehicle.
• Turn on the Hazard Warning flasher.
• Block the wheel diagonally opposite the wheel to be raised.
• Set the parking brake firmly and set an automatic transmission in PARK; a
manual transmission in REVERSE.
• Do not let anyone sit in the vehicle when it is on a jack.
• Do not get under the vehicle when it is on a jack.
• Only use the jack in the positions indicated and for lifting this vehicle during
a tire change.
• If working on or near a roadway, be extremely careful of motor traffic.
• To assure that spare tires, flat or inflated, are securely stowed, spares must be
stowed with the valve stem facing the ground.
• Raising the vehicle higher than necessary can make the vehicle unstable and
cause a collision. It could slip off the jack and hurt someone near it. Raise the
vehicle only enough to remove the tire.
• A loose tire or jack thrown forward in a collision or hard stop could injure
someone in the vehicle. Always stow the jack parts and the extra tire and wheel
in the places provided.
127
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
HOISTING
• A conventional floor jack may be used at the jacking locations. Refer to the
graphics that show jacking locations. However, a floor jack or frame hoist must
never be used on any other parts of the underbody.
CAUTION!
Never use a floor jack directly under the differential housing of a loaded truck or
damage to your vehicle may result.
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.
NOTE:
When using a portable battery booster pack follow the manufacturer’s operating
instructions and precautions.
Preparations for Jump-Start
• The battery in your vehicle is located
in the front of the engine compartment, behind the left headlight
assembly.
• Set the parking brake, shift the automatic transmission into PARK and turn
the ignition to LOCK.
• Turn off the heater, radio, and all unnecessary electrical accessories.
• 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.
128
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
Jump-Starting Procedure
• Connect the positive (+) end of the jumper cable to the positive (+) post of the
discharged vehicle.
• Connect the opposite end of the positive (+) jumper cable to the positive (+) post
of the booster battery.
• Connect the negative end (-) of the jumper cable to the negative (-) post of the
booster battery.
• Connect the opposite end of the negative (-) jumper cable to a good engine ground
(exposed metal part of the discharged vehicle’s engine) away from the battery and
the fuel injection system.
• 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.
Once the engine is started, remove the jumper cables in the reverse sequence:
• Disconnect the negative (-) jumper cable from the engine ground of the vehicle
with the discharged battery.
• Disconnect the negative end (-) of the jumper cable from the negative (-) post of
the booster battery.
• Disconnect the opposite end of the positive (+) jumper cable from the positive (+)
post of the booster battery.
• Disconnect the positive (+) end of the jumper cable from the positive (+) post of
the discharged vehicle.
• If frequent jump-starting is required to start your vehicle you should have the
battery and charging system inspected at your authorized dealer.
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.
• Failure to follow these procedures could result in damage to the charging
system of the booster vehicle or the discharged vehicle.
• Accessories that can be plugged into the vehicle power outlets draw power from
the vehicle’s battery, even when not in use (i.e., cellular phones, etc.).
Eventually, if plugged in long enough, the vehicle’s battery will discharge
sufficiently to degrade battery life and/or prevent the engine from starting.
129
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
WARNING!
• When temperatures are below the freezing point, electrolyte in a discharged
battery may freeze. Do not attempt jump-starting because the battery could
rupture or explode and cause personal injury. Battery temperature must be
brought above the freezing point before attempting a jump-start.
• Take care to avoid the radiator cooling fan whenever the hood is raised. It can
start anytime the ignition switch is on. You can be injured by moving fan
blades.
• Remove any metal jewelry, such as watch bands or bracelets, that might make
an inadvertent electrical contact. You could be severely 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.
• Do not allow vehicles to touch each other as this could establish a ground
connection and personal injury could result.
• Failure to follow this procedure could result in personal injury or property
damage due to battery explosion.
• Do not connect the 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.
EMERGENCY TOW HOOKS
• If your vehicle is equipped with tow hooks, they are mounted in the front.
• For off-road recovery, it is recommended to use both of the front tow hooks to
minimize the risk of damage to the vehicle.
CAUTION!
Tow hooks are for emergency use only, to rescue a vehicle stranded off-road. Do not
use tow hooks for tow truck hookup or highway towing. You could damage your
vehicle. Tow straps are recommended when towing the vehicle; chains may cause
vehicle damage.
WARNING!
• Chains are not recommended for freeing a stuck vehicle. Chains may break,
causing serious injury or death.
• Stand clear of vehicles when pulling with tow hooks. Tow straps and chains may
break, causing serious injury.

FREEING A STUCK VEHICLE
• If your vehicle becomes stuck in mud, sand or snow, it can often be moved by a
rocking motion. Turn your steering wheel right and left to clear the area around the
front wheels. Then, move the shift lever back and forth between REVERSE and
DRIVE. Using minimal accelerator pedal pressure to maintain the rocking motion,
without spinning the wheels, is most effective.
• Allow the engine to idle with the transmission shift lever in NEUTRAL for at least
one minute after every five rocking-motion cycles. This will minimize overheating
and reduce the risk of transmission failure during prolonged efforts to free a stuck
vehicle.
NOTE:
If your vehicle is equipped with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) then press the
"ESC Off" switch, to place the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system in "Partial
Off" mode, before rocking the vehicle.
CAUTION!
Revving the engine or spinning the wheels too fast may lead to transmission
overheating and failure. It can also damage the tires. Do not spin the wheels above
30 mph (48 km/h) while in gear (no transmission shifting occurring).
WARNING!
Fast spinning tires can be dangerous. Forces generated by excessive wheel speeds
may cause 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) when you are stuck. Do
not let anyone near a spinning wheel, no matter what the speed.
133
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
EVENT DATA RECORDER (EDR)
• This vehicle is equipped with an Event Data Recorder (EDR). The main purpose of
an EDR is to record, in certain crash or near crash-like situations, such as an air
bag deployment or hitting a road obstacle, data that will assist in understanding
how a vehicle’s systems performed. The EDR is designed to record data related to
vehicle dynamics and safety systems for a short period of time, typically 30
seconds or less. The EDR in this vehicle is designed to record such data as:
• How various systems in your vehicle were operating.
• Whether or not the driver and passenger safety belts were buckled/fastened.
• How far (if at all) the driver was depressing the accelerator and/or brake pedal.
• 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.

Fluid, Lubricant, or Genuine Part
Use good quality diesel fuel from a reputable supplier in your vehicle. Federal
law requires that you must fuel this vehicle with Ultra Low Sulfur Highway Diesel fuel (15 ppm Sulfur maximum) and
prohibits the use of Low Sulfur Highway
Diesel fuel (500 ppm Sulfur maximum)
to avoid damage to the emissions control
system. For most year-round service, No.
2 diesel fuel meeting ASTM specification
D-975 Grade S15 will provide good performance. If the vehicle is exposed to
extreme cold (below 20°F or -7 °C), or is
required to operate at colder than normal
conditions for prolonged periods, use
climatized No. 2 diesel fuel or dilute the
No. 2 diesel fuel with 50% No. 1 diesel
fuel. This will provide better protection
from fuel gelling or wax-plugging of the
fuel filters. This vehicle is fully compatible with biodiesel blends up to 5% biodiesel meeting ASTM specification
D-975.

MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE – GASOLINE ENGINE
Your vehicle is equipped with an automatic oil change indicator system. The oil
change indicator system will remind you that it is time to take your vehicle in for
scheduled maintenance.
Based on engine operation conditions, the oil change indicator message will
illuminate. This means that service is required for your vehicle. Operating conditions
such as frequent short-trips, trailer tow, extremely hot or cold ambient temperatures,
and E85 fuel usage will influence when the “Oil Change Required” message is
displayed. Severe Operating Conditions can cause the change oil message to
illuminate as early as 3,500 miles (5,600 km) since last reset. Have your vehicle
serviced as soon as possible, within the next 500 miles (805 km).
Your authorized dealer will reset the oil change indicator message after completing
the scheduled oil change. If a scheduled oil change is performed by someone other
than your authorized dealer, the message can be reset by referring to the steps
described under “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)/Oil Change Required” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” for further information
NOTE:
Under no circumstances should oil change intervals exceed 10,000 miles
(16,000 km) or twelve months, whichever comes first.

CAUTION!
Failure to perform the required maintenance items may result in damage to the
vehicle.
At Each Stop For Fuel
• Check the engine oil level at least 30 minutes after a fully warmed engine is shut
off. Checking the oil level while the vehicle is on level ground will improve the
accuracy of the oil level reading. Add oil only when the level is at or below the ADD
or MIN mark.
Once A Month
• Inspect the batteries, and clean and tighten the terminals as required.
• Check the fluid levels of the coolant reservoir, brake master cylinder, and
automatic transmission (if equipped), and add as needed.
At Each Oil Change
• Change the engine oil filter.
• Inspect the exhaust system.
• Check the coolant level, hoses, and clamps.
• Lubricate outer tie rod ends.
Inspection and service should also be performed anytime a malfunction is observed
or suspected. Retain all receipts.
Oil Change Indicator System — Cummins® Diesel
Your vehicle is equipped with an engine oil change indicator system. This system will
alert you when it is time to change your engine oil by displaying the words “Oil
Change Due” on your Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC). The oil change
reminder will remind the owner to change the engine oil every 15,000 miles or 500
hours, whichever comes first, except for the Chassis Cab models that are using B20
biodiesel, which are 12,500 miles or 400 hours, whichever comes first. Failure to
change the engine oil per the maintenance schedule can result in internal engine
damage.
For information on resetting the Oil Change Indicator message, refer to “Oil Change
Due” under “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)/EVIC Warning Lights” in
“Understanding Your Instrument Panel” for further information.
Replace the engine oil and oil filter every 15,000 miles (24 000 km) or six months, or
sooner if prompted by the oil change indicator system. Under no circumstances should oil
change intervals exceed 15,000 miles (24 000 km) or six months, whichever comes first.
146
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
NOTE:
• Under no circumstances should oil change intervals exceed 15,000 miles
(24,000 km) or six months or 500 Hours, whichever comes first.
• Replace the engine oil and oil filter every 12,500 miles (20 000 km) when
running B20 fuel (Chassis Cab Only).
If Chassis Cab models are operated with greater than 5% levels of Biodiesel, the oil
change interval must not exceed 12,500 miles (20 000 km) under any circumstances. See the Fuel Requirements section for more information regarding operation of Chassis Cab models configured for use with Biodiesel blend (B6-B20) fuel
meeting ASTM specification D-7467.
Perform Service Indicator
Your vehicle will require emissions maintenance at a set interval. To help remind you
when this maintenance is due, the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) will
display “Perform Service”. When the “Perform Service” message is displayed on the
EVIC it is necessary to have the emissions maintenance performed. Emissions
maintenance may include replacing the Closed Crankcase Ventilation (CCV) filter
element. The procedure for clearing and resetting the “Perform Service” indicator
message is located in the appropriate Service Information.

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.

MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
TIRE PRESSURES
• Check the inflation pressure of each tire, including the spare tire, at least monthly
and inflate to the recommended pressure for your vehicle.
• The tire pressures recommended for your vehicle are found on the “Tire and
Loading Information” label located on the driver’s side door opening.
NOTE:
Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD
for more information regarding tire warnings and instructions.
WARNING!
• Overloading of your tires is dangerous. Overloading can cause tire failure,
affect vehicle handling, and increase your stopping distance. Use tires of the
recommended load capacity for your vehicle. Never overload them.
• Improperly inflated tires are dangerous and can cause collisions. Underinflation is the leading cause of tire failure and may result in severe cracking,
component separation, or “blow out”. Over-inflation reduces a tire’s ability to
cushion shock. Objects on the road and chuck holes can cause damage that
results in tire failure. Unequal tire pressures can cause steering problems. You
could lose control of your vehicle. Over-inflated or under-inflated tires can
affect vehicle handling and can fail suddenly, resulting in loss of vehicle
control.
155
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
WHEEL AND WHEEL TRIM CARE
• All wheels and wheel trim, especially aluminum and chrome plated wheels,
should be cleaned regularly with a mild soap and water to prevent corrosion.
• To remove heavy soil and/or excessive brake dust, use MOPAR® Wheel Cleaner or
equivalent or select a non-abrasive, non-acidic cleaner.
CAUTION!
Do not use scouring pads, steel wool, a bristle brush, or metal polishes. Do not use
oven cleaner. These products may damage the wheel's protective finish. Avoid
automatic car washes that use acidic solutions or harsh brushes that may damage
the wheel's protective finish. Only MOPAR® Wheel Cleaner or equivalent is
recommended.

that a safety defect exists in a group of vehicles, it may order a recall and remedy
campaign. However, NHTSA cannot become involved in individual problems
between you, your authorized dealer and the manufacturer.

This guide has been prepared to help you get quickly acquainted with
your new RAM and to provide a convenient reference source for common
questions. However, it is not a substitute for your Owner’s Manual.
For complete operational instructions, maintenance procedures and
important safety messages, please consult your Owner’s Manual,
Navigation/Uconnect® Manuals and other Warning Labels in your vehicle.
Not all features shown in this guide may apply to your vehicle. For
additional information on accessories to help personalize your vehicle,
visit www.mopar.com or your local RAM dealer.
If you are the first registered retail owner of your vehicle, you
may obtain a complimentary printed copy of the Owner’s Manual,
Navigation/Uconnect® Manuals or Warranty Booklet by calling
1-866-726-4636 (U.S.) or 1-800-387-1143 (Canada) or by
contacting your dealer.
IMPORTANT
This User Guide is intended to familiarize you with the important
features of your vehicle. The DVD enclosed contains your Owner’s Manual,
Navigation/Uconnect® Manuals, Warranty Booklets, Tire Warranty and
Roadside Assistance (new vehicles purchased in the U.S.) or Roadside
Assistance (new vehicles purchased in Canada) in electronic format.
We hope you find it useful. Replacement DVD kits may be purchased
by visiting www.techauthority.com. Copyright 2014 Chrysler Group LLC.
The driver’s primary responsibility is the safe operation of the vehicle. Driving while
distracted can result in loss of vehicle control, resulting in a collision and personal
injury. Chrysler Group LLC strongly recommends that the driver use extreme caution
when using any device or feature that may take their attention off the road. Use of any
electrical devices such as cell phones, computers, portable radios, vehicle navigation
or other devices by the driver while the vehicle is moving is dangerous and could lead
to a serious collision. Texting while driving is also dangerous and should never be
done while the vehicle is moving. If you find yourself unable to devote your full
attention to vehicle operation, pull off the road to a safe location and stop your
vehicle. Some States or Provinces prohibit the use of cellular telephones or texting
while driving. It is always the driver’s responsibility to comply with all local laws.
DRIVING AND ALCOHOL
Drunken driving is one of the most frequent causes of collisions. Your driving ability
can be seriously impaired with blood alcohol levels far below the legal minimum. If
you are drinking, don’t drive. Ride with a designated non-drinking driver, call a cab,
a friend, or use public transportation.
WARNING
Driving after drinking can lead to a collision. Your perceptions are less sharp,
your reflexes are slower, and your judgment is impaired when you have been
drinking. Never drink and then drive.
