INTRODUCTION
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.
This is a specialized utility vehicle designed for
both on-road and off-road use. It can go places
and perform tasks for which conventional two–
wheel drive vehicles were not intended. It
handles and maneuvers differently from many
passenger cars both on-road and off-road, so
take time to become familiar with your vehicle.
Before you start to drive this vehicle, read the
Owner’s Manual and all the Supplements. Be
sure you are familiar with all vehicle controls,
particularly those used for braking, steering,
and transmission and transfer case shifting.
Learn how your vehicle handles on different
road surfaces. Your driving skills will improve
with experience, but as in driving any vehicle,
take it easy as you begin. When driving off-road
or working the vehicle, don’t overload it or
expect it to overcome the forces of nature.
Always observe local laws wherever you drive.
4
As with other vehicles of this type, failure to
operate this vehicle correctly may result in loss
of control or an accident. Be sure to read the
“On-Road/ Off-Road Driving Tips” in Section 5
of this manual.
To keep your vehicle running at its best, have
your vehicle serviced at recommended intervals by an authorized dealer or distributor who
has the qualified personnel, special tools and
equipment to perform all service.
NOTE:
After you read the manual, it should be
stored in the vehicle for convenient referencing and remain with the vehicle when
sold so that the new owner will be aware of
all safety warnings.
The manufacturer and its distributors are vitally
interested in your complete satisfaction with
this vehicle. If you encounter a service or
warranty problem which is not resolved to your
satisfaction, discuss the matter with your authorized dealer or distributor’s management.
Failure to operate this vehicle correctly may
result in loss of control or an accident.
Your authorized dealer or distributor will be
happy to assist you with any questions about
your vehicle.
Operating this vehicle at excessive speeds or
while intoxicated may result in loss of control,
collision with other vehicles or objects, going
off the road, or overturning; any of which may
lead to serious injury or death. Also, failure to
use seat belts subjects the driver and passengers to a greater risk of injury or death.
ROLLOVER WARNING
Utility vehicles have a significantly higher rollover rate than other types of vehicles. This
vehicle has a higher ground clearance and a
higher center of gravity than many passenger
cars. It is capable of performing better in a
wide variety of off-road applications. Driven in
an unsafe manner, all vehicles can go out of
control. Because of the higher center of gravity,
if this vehicle is out of control it may roll over
when some other vehicles may not.
Do not attempt sharp turns, abrupt maneuvers,
or other unsafe driving actions that can cause
loss of vehicle control. Failure to operate this
vehicle safely may result in an accident, rollover of the vehicle, and severe or fatal injury.
Drive carefully.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
ALL MATERIAL CONTAINED IN THIS PUBLICATION IS BASED ON THE LATEST INFORMATION AVAILABLE AT TIME OF PUBLICATION
APPROVAL. THE RIGHT IS RESERVED TO
PUBLISH REVISIONS AT ANY TIME.
This Owner’s Manual has been prepared with
the assistance of service and engineering specialists to acquaint you with the operation and
maintenance of your new vehicle. It is supplemented by a Warranty Information Booklet and
various customer-oriented documents. You are
urged to read these publications carefully. Following the instructions and recommendations
in this Owner’s Manual will help assure safe
and enjoyable operation of your vehicle.
Rollover Warning Label
Failure to use driver and passenger seat
belts provided is a major cause of severe or
fatal injury. In a rollover crash, an unbelted
person is significantly more likely to die than a
person wearing a seat belt. Always buckle up.
After you have read the Owner’s Manual, it
should be stored in the vehicle for convenient
reference and remain with the vehicle when
sold.
The manufacturer reserves the right to make
changes in design and specifications, and/or
to make additions to or improvements in its
products without imposing any obligations
upon itself to install them on products previously manufactured.
The Owner’s Manual illustrates and describes
the features that are standard or available as
extra cost options. Therefore, some of the
equipment and accessories in this publication
may not appear on your vehicle.
NOTE:
Be sure to read the Owner’s Manual first
before driving your vehicle and before attaching or installing parts/accessories or
making other modifications to the vehicle.
In view of the many replacement parts and
accessories from various manufacturers available on the market, the manufacturer cannot be
certain that the driving safety of your vehicle
will not be impaired by the attachment or installation of such parts. Even if such parts are
officially-approved (for example, by a general
operating permit for the part or by constructing
the part in an officially approved design), or if
5
an individual operating permit was issued for
the vehicle after the attachment or installation
of such parts, it cannot be implicitly assumed
that the driving safety of your vehicle is unimpaired. Therefore, neither experts nor official
agencies are liable. Therefore the manufacturer
only assumes responsibility when parts, which
are expressly authorized or recommended by
the manufacturer, are attached or installed at
an authorized dealer. The same applies when
modifications to the original condition are subsequently made on the manufacturer’s vehicles.
Your warranties do not cover any part that the
manufacturer did not supply. Nor do they cover
the cost of any repairs or adjustments that
might be caused or needed because of the
6
installation or use of non-manufacturer parts,
components, equipment, materials, or additives. Nor do your warranties cover the costs of
repairing damage or conditions caused by any
changes to your vehicle that do not comply with
the manufacturers specifications.
Original Mopar姞 parts and accessories and
other products approved by the manufacturer,
including qualified advice, are available at your
authorized dealer.
When it comes to service, remember that your
authorized dealer knows your vehicle best, has
the factory-trained technicians and genuine
Mopar姞 parts, and is interested in your satisfaction.

emergency key with you when valet parking.
A WORD ABOUT YOUR KEYS
Your vehicle uses a keyless ignition system.
This system consists of a Key Fob with Remote
Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter and a Wireless
Ignition Node (WIN) with integral ignition
switch. You can insert the Key Fob into the
ignition switch with either side up.
To remove the emergency key, slide the mechanical latch at the top of the Key Fob sideways with your thumb and then pull the key out
with your other hand.
Wireless Ignition Node (WIN)
The Wireless Ignition Node (WIN) operates
similar to an ignition switch. It has four operating positions, three of which are detented and
one spring-loaded. The detented positions are
LOCK, ACC, and ON. The START position is a
spring-loaded momentary contact position.
When released from the START position, the
switch automatically returns to the detented ON
position.

Emergency Key Removal
NOTE:
You can insert the double-sided emergency
key into the lock cylinders with either side
up.
Removing Key Fob From Ignition
Place the shift lever in PARK. Turn the key to the
LOCK position and then remove the Key Fob.
NOTE:
• For vehicles not equipped with the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC),
the power window switches, radio, power
sunroof (if equipped), and power outlets
will remain active for 10 minutes after the
ignition switch is turned to the LOCK
position. Opening either front door will
cancel this feature.
• For vehicles equipped with the EVIC, the
power window switches, radio, power
sunroof (if equipped), and power outlets
will remain active for up to 60 minutes
after the ignition switch is turned to the
LOCK position. Opening either front door
will cancel this feature. The time for this
feature is programmable. Refer to “Delay
Power Off to Accessories Until Exit,” under “Personal Settings (Customer-Programmable Features),” under “Electronic
Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) – If
Equipped” in Section 4.
WARNING!
Never leave children alone in a vehicle. Leaving unattended children in a vehicle is dangerous for a number of reasons. A child or others
could be seriously or fatally injured. Do not
leave the Key Fob in the ignition. A child could
operate power windows, other controls, or
move the vehicle.
CAUTION!
An unlocked car is an invitation to thieves.
Always remove the Key Fob from the ignition
and lock all doors when leaving the vehicle
unattended.
Key-In-Ignition Reminder
Opening the driver’s door when the Key Fob is
in the ignition and the ignition switch position is
OFF or ACC, sounds a signal to remind you to
remove the Key Fob.
NOTE:
The Key-In-Ignition reminder only sounds
when the Key Fob is placed in the LOCK or
ACC ignition position.
SENTRY KEY姞
The Sentry Key姞 Immobilizer system prevents
unauthorized vehicle operation by disabling
the engine. The system does not need to be
armed or activated. Operation is automatic,
regardless of whether the vehicle is locked or
unlocked.
The system uses the factory-mated Key Fob
with Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter
and Wireless Ignition Node (WIN) to prevent
unauthorized vehicle operation. Therefore, only
Key Fobs that are programmed to the vehicle
can be used to start and operate the vehicle.
The system will shut the engine off in two
seconds if an invalid Key Fob is used to start
the engine.
After turning the ignition switch to the ON
position, the Vehicle Security Light will turn on
for three seconds for a bulb check. If the light
remains on after the bulb check, it indicates
that there is a problem with the electronics. In
addition, if the light begins to flash after the
bulb check, it indicates that someone used an
invalid Key Fob to start the engine. Either of
these conditions will result in the engine being
shut off after two seconds.
13
If the Vehicle Security Light turns on during
normal vehicle operation (vehicle running for
longer than 10 seconds), it indicates that there
is a fault in the electronics. Should this occur,
have the vehicle serviced as soon as possible
by an authorized dealer.
CAUTION!
Always remove the keys from the vehicle and
lock all doors when leaving the vehicle unattended.
NOTE:
The Sentry Key姞 Immobilizer system is not
compatible with aftermarket remote starting
systems. Use of these systems may result in
vehicle starting problems and loss of security protection.
At the time of purchase, the original owner is
provided with a four-digit Personal Identification Number (PIN). Keep the PIN in a secure
location. This number is required for authorized
dealer replacement of Key Fobs. Duplication of
Key Fobs may be performed at an authorized
dealer.
All of the Key Fobs provided with your new
vehicle have been programmed to the vehicle
electronics.
Replacement Keys
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.
14
NOTE:
When having the Sentry Key姞 Immobilizer
system serviced, bring all vehicle ignition
keys with you to an authorized dealer.
Customer Key Programming
Programming Key Fobs or RKE transmitters
may be performed at an authorized dealer.
General Information
The Sentry Key姞 operates on a carrier frequency of 433.92 MHz. The Sentry Key姞 Immobilizer system will be used in the following
European countries, which apply Directive
1999/5/EC: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic,
Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece,
Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania,
Russian Federation, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden,
Switzerland, Yugoslavia, and United Kingdom.
Operation is subject to the following conditions:
• This device may not cause harmful interference.
• This device must accept any interference
that may be received, including interference
that may cause undesired operation.
VEHICLE SECURITY ALARM — IF
EQUIPPED
The Vehicle Security Alarm monitors the hood,
liftgate, liftgate flipper glass, vehicle doors for
unauthorized entry, and the ignition switch for
unauthorized operation. If something triggers
the alarm, the Vehicle Security Alarm will prevent the vehicle from starting and provide the
following audio and visual signals: the horn will
pulse, the headlights will flash, the park lights
will flash, and the Vehicle Security Light in the
instrument cluster will flash.
To Set the Alarm
Remove the key from the ignition switch and
either press a power door lock switch while the
driver or passenger door is open, or press the
LOCK button on the Remote Keyless Entry
(RKE) transmitter. After the last door is closed,
or if all doors are closed, the Vehicle Security
Alarm will arm itself in about 16 seconds.
During that time, the Vehicle Security Light will
flash. If it does not illuminate, the Vehicle Security Alarm is not arming. Also, if you open a door
during the arming period, the Vehicle Security
Alarm will cancel the arming process. If you
wish to rearm the Vehicle Security Alarm after
closing the door, you must repeat one of the
previously-described arming sequences.
To Disarm the System
Either press the UNLOCK button on the RKE
transmitter, or insert a valid ignition key into the
ignition switch, and turn the key to the ON
position.
NOTE:
• The driver’s door key cylinder cannot arm
or disarm the Vehicle Security Alarm.
• When the Vehicle Security Alarm is
armed, the interior power door lock
switches will not unlock the doors.
ILLUMINATED ENTRY
The Vehicle Security Alarm is designed to protect your vehicle; however, you can create
conditions where the Vehicle Security Alarm will
give you a false alarm. If one of the previouslydescribed arming sequences has occurred,
the Vehicle Security Alarm will arm, regardless
of whether you are in the vehicle or not. If you
remain in the vehicle and open a door, the
alarm will sound. If this occurs, disarm the
Vehicle Security Alarm.
The lights also will fade to off if you turn on the
ignition after you close all the doors.
The interior lights come on when you open any
door or use the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE)
transmitter to unlock any door. They will remain
on for approximately 30 seconds after all doors
are closed then fade to off.
REMOTE KEYLESS ENTRY (RKE)
This system allows you to lock or unlock the
doors or liftgate from distances up to approximately 30 ft (9 m) using a hand-held Key Fob
with RKE transmitter. The RKE transmitter does
not need to be pointed at the vehicle to activate
the system.
If the Vehicle Security Alarm is armed, and the
battery becomes disconnected, the Vehicle
Security Alarm will remain armed when the
battery is reconnected. The exterior lights will
flash, the horn will sound, and the ignition will
not start the vehicle. If this occurs, disarm the
Vehicle Security Alarm.
15
NOTE:
Inserting the Key Fob with RKE transmitter
into the ignition switch disables all buttons
on that RKE transmitter; however, the buttons on the remaining RKE transmitters will
continue to work. Driving at speeds 5 mph
(8 km/h) and above disables all RKE transmitter buttons for all RKE transmitters.
Key Fob with RKE Transmitter
To Unlock the Doors
Press and release the UNLOCK button on the
RKE transmitter once to unlock the driver’s
door or twice to unlock all doors. The turn
signal lights will flash to acknowledge the unlock signal. The illuminated entry system will
also turn on.
16
Remote Key Unlock, Driver Door/All Doors

• For vehicles equipped with the Electronic
Vehicle Information Center (EVIC), refer to
“Remote Key Unlock,” under “Personal Settings (Customer-Programmable Features)” in
the “Electronic Vehicle Information Center
(EVIC),” in Section 4 of this manual.
Flash Lights with Remote Key Lock
This feature will cause the turn signal lights to
flash when the doors are locked or unlocked
with the RKE transmitter. This feature can be
turned on or off. To change the current setting,
proceed as follows:
• For vehicles equipped with the Electronic

OCCUPANT RESTRAINTS
Some of the most important safety features in
your vehicle are the restraint systems:
• Three-point lap and shoulder belts for the
driver and all passengers
• Advanced Front Airbags for driver and front
passenger
21
• Supplemental Side Airbag Inflatable Curtains (SABIC) for the driver and passengers
seated next to a window — if equipped
tion on LATCH, see Lower Anchors and Tether
for CHildren (LATCH) in this section.
• Knee bolsters/blockers for front seat occupants
NOTE:
The Advanced Front Airbags have a multistage inflator design. This allows the airbag
to have different rates of inflation based on
severity and type of collision.
• Front seat belts incorporate pretensioners to
enhance occupant protection by managing
occupant energy during an impact event —
if equipped
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.
• An energy-absorbing steering column and
steering wheel
• All seat belt systems (except the driver’s)
include Automatic Locking Retractors (ALRs),
which lock the seat belt webbing into position
by extending the belt all the way out and then
adjusting the belt to the desired length to
restrain a child seat or secure a large item in

WARNING!
In a collision, you and your passengers can
suffer much greater injuries if you are not
properly buckled up. You can strike the interior
of your vehicle or other passengers, or you
can be thrown out of the vehicle. Always be
sure you and others in your vehicle are buckled up properly.
Buckle up even though you are an excellent
driver, even on short trips. Someone on the
road may be a poor driver and 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.
Lap/Shoulder Belts
All seating positions in your vehicle have combination lap/shoulder belts. The belt webbing
retractor is designed to lock during very sudden stops or collisions. This feature allows the
shoulder part of the belt to move freely with you
under normal conditions. But in a collision, the
belt will lock and reduce the risk of you striking
the inside of the vehicle or being thrown out.
WARNING!
• Wearing a seat belt incorrectly is dangerous. Seat belts are designed to go around
the large bones of your body. These are the
strongest parts of your body and can take
the forces of a collision the best. Wearing
your belt in the wrong place could make
your injuries in a collision much worse. You
might suffer internal injuries, or you could
even slide out of part of the 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 an accident,
hurting one another badly. Never use a
lap/shoulder belt or a lap belt for more than
one person, no matter what their size.
(Continued)
WARNING! (Continued)
• 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.

3. When the belt is long enough to fit, insert the
latch plate into the buckle until you hear a
“click.”
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
your seat. Grasp the latch plate and pull out the
belt. Slide the latch plate up the webbing as far
as necessary to make the belt go around your
lap.

23
WARNING!
• A 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 belt into the buckle nearest you.
• A belt that is too loose will not protect you
as well. In a sudden stop you could move
too far forward, increasing the possibility of
injury. Wear your seat belt snugly.
• A belt that is worn under your arm is very
dangerous. Your body could strike the inside surfaces of the vehicle in a collision,
increasing head and neck injury. A belt
worn under the arm can cause internal
injuries. Ribs aren’t as strong as shoulder
bones. Wear the belt over your shoulder so
that your strongest bones will take the force
in a collision.
(Continued)
WARNING! (Continued)
• 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.
4. 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.
WARNING!
• A lap belt worn too high can increase the
risk of injury in a collision. The 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.
(Continued)
24
WARNING! (Continued)
• A twisted belt can’t do its job as well. In a
collision, it could even cut into you. Be sure
the belt is straight. If you can’t straighten a
belt in your vehicle, take it to your authorized dealer and have it fixed.
5. 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.

6. To release the belt, push the red button
marked PRESS on the buckle. The belt will
automatically retract to its stowed position. If
necessary, slide the latch plate down the webbing to allow it to retract fully.
latched, pull downward on the shoulder belt
anchorage until it is locked into position.
In the rear seat, move toward the center of the
seat to position the belt away from your neck.
Energy Management Feature
WARNING!
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 an accident if
they have been damaged (bent retractor, torn
webbing, etc.).
Adjustable Upper Shoulder Belt
Anchorage
In the front seating positions, the shoulder belt
can be adjusted upward or downward to position the belt away from your neck. Press the
release button to release the anchorage, and
then move it up or down to the position that
serves you best.
This vehicle has a safety belt system with an
Energy Management feature in the front seating
positions to help further reduce the risk of injury
in the event of a head-on collision.
Adjusting Upper Shoulder Belt
As a guide, if you are shorter than average, you
will prefer a lower position, and if you are taller
than average, you will prefer a higher position.
When you release the anchorage, try to move it
up or down to make sure that it is locked in
position.
NOTE:
The adjustable upper shoulder belt anchorage is equipped with an Easy Up feature.
This feature allows the shoulder belt anchorage to be adjusted in the upward position without pressing the release button. To
verify the shoulder belt anchorage is
This safety belt system has a retractor assembly that is designed to release webbing in a
controlled manner. This feature is designed to
help reduce the belt force acting on the occupant’s chest.
WARNING!
• The belt and retractor assembly must be
replaced if the seat belt assembly 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.
(Continued)
25
WARNING! (Continued)
• Failure to replace the belt and retractor
assembly could increase the risk of injury in
collisions.
Automatic Locking Retractors (ALR)
Mode — If Equipped
In this mode, the shoulder belt is automatically
pre-locked. The belt will still retract to remove
any slack in the shoulder belt.
When to Use the Automatic Locking Mode
Use the Automatic Locking Mode anytime a
child safety seat is installed in the rear center
seating position. Children 12 years old and
younger should be properly restrained in the
rear seat whenever possible.
How to Use the Automatic Locking Mode
1. Buckle the combination lap and shoulder
belt.
2. Grasp the shoulder portion and pull downward until the entire belt is fully extended.
26
3. Allow the belt to retract. As the belt retracts,
you will hear a clicking sound. This indicates
the safety belt is now in the Automatic Locking
Mode.
How to Disengage the Automatic Locking
Mode
Disconnect 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.
Seat Belt Pretensioners — If
Equipped
The driver and front passenger seat belts may
be equipped with a pretensioning device that is
designed to remove any slack from the seat
belt systems in the event of a collision. This
device improves the performance of the seat
belt by assuring that the belt is tight around the
occupant early in a collision. Pretensioners
work for all size occupants, including those in
child restraints.
NOTE:
These devices are not a substitute for
proper seat belt placement by the occupant.
The seat belt must still be worn snugly and
positioned properly.
The pretensioners are triggered by the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC). Like the airbags, the pretensioners are single use items.
After a collision deploys the airbags and/or
pretensioners, a deployed airbag and/or pretensioner must be replaced immediately.
Enhanced Seat Belt Use Reminder
System (BeltAlert姞)
If the driver’s seat belt has not been buckled
within 60 seconds of starting the vehicle and if
the vehicle speed is greater than 5 mph
(8 km/h), the BeltAlert姞 will alert the driver to
buckle the seat belt. The driver should also
instruct all other occupants to buckle their seat
belts. Once the warning is triggered, the
BeltAlert姞 will continue to chime and flash the
Seat Belt Reminder Light for 96 seconds or until
the driver’s seat belt is buckled. The BeltAlert姞
will be reactivated if the driver’s seat belt is
unbuckled for more than 10 seconds and the
vehicle speed is greater than 5 mph (8 km/h).
Supplemental Restraint Systems
(SRS) — Airbags
NOTE:
• BeltAlert姞 can be enabled or disabled by
your authorized dealer.
• Chrysler Group LLC does not recommend
deactivating BeltAlert姞.
Although BeltAlert姞 has been deactivated,
the Seat Belt Reminder Light will continue to
illuminate while the driver seat belt remains
unfastened.
This vehicle has airbags for both the driver and
front passenger as a supplement to the seat
belt restraint systems. The driver’s front airbag
is mounted in the center of the steering wheel.
The passenger’s front airbag is mounted in the
instrument panel, above the glove compartment. The words SRS AIRBAG are embossed
on the airbag covers.
Seat Belts and Pregnant Women
We recommend that pregnant women use the
seat belts throughout their pregnancy. Keeping
the mother safe is the best way to keep the
baby safe.
Pregnant women should wear the lap part of
the belt across the thighs and as snug across
the hips as possible. Keep the belt low so that
it does not come across the abdomen. That
way the strong bones of the hips will take the
force if there is a collision.
NOTE:
These airbags are certified to regulations for
Advanced Airbags.
The Advanced Front Airbags have a multistage
inflator design. This allows the airbag to have
different rates of inflation based on the severity
and type of collision.
This vehicle may also be equipped with
Supplemental Side Airbag Inflatable Curtains
(SABIC) to protect the driver, front, and rear
passengers sitting next to a window. If the
vehicle is equipped with SABIC airbags, they
are located above the side windows and their
covers are also labeled: SRS AIRBAG.
NOTE:
Airbag covers may not be obvious in the
interior trim; but they will open during airbag
deployment.

Airbag System Components
The airbag system consists of the following:
• Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC)
• Airbag Warning Light
• Driver Front Airbag
27
• Front Passenger Airbag
• Front and Side Impact Sensors
• Steering Wheel and Column
• Instrument Panel
• Knee Impact Bolster
• Front Seat Belt Pretensioners — if equipped
• Supplemental Side Airbag Inflatable Curtains (SABIC) — if equipped
Advanced Front Airbag Features
The Advanced Front Airbag system has multistage driver and front passenger airbags. 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 impact sensors at the front of the car.
The first stage inflator is triggered immediately
during an impact that requires airbag deployment. The timing of the second stage determines whether the output force is low, medium,
or high. If a low output is sufficient to meet the
need, the remaining gas in the inflator is expended.
28
WARNING!
• Do not put anything on or around the airbag
covers or attempt to open them manually.
You may damage the airbags and you
could be injured because the airbags may
no longer be functional. The protective covers for the airbag cushions are designed to
open only when the airbags are inflating.
• Do not drill, cut or tamper with the knee
bolster in any way.
• Do not mount any accessories to the knee
bolster such as alarm lights, stereos, citizen band radios, etc.
Supplemental Side Airbag Inflatable
Curtain (SABIC) — If Equipped
SABIC airbags offer side-impact and vehicle
rollover protection to front and rear seat outboard occupants in addition to that provided by
the body structure. Each airbag features inflated chambers placed adjacent to the head of
each outboard occupant that reduce the potential for side-impact head injuries. The curtains
deploy downward, covering both windows on
the impact side.
Supplemental Side Airbag Inflatable Curtain
(SABIC) Location
NOTE:
• Should a vehicle rollover occur, the pretensioners and/or SABIC airbags on both
sides of the vehicle may deploy.
• Airbag covers may not be obvious in the
interior trim; but they will open during
airbag deployment.
The system includes sensors adjacent to both
front and rear seat occupants that are calibrated to deploy the SABIC airbags during
impacts that require airbag occupant protection.
WARNING!
• If your vehicle is equipped with left and right
Side Airbag Inflatable Curtain (SABIC), do
not stack luggage or other cargo up high
enough to block the location of the SABIC.
The area where the side curtain airbag is
located should remain free from any obstructions.
• Do not use accessory seat covers or place
objects between you and the side airbags;
the performance could be adversely affected and/or objects could be pushed into
you, causing serious injury.
Along with seat belts and pretensioners, Advanced Front Airbags work with the knee bolsters to provide improved protection for the
driver and front passenger. Side airbags also
work with seat belts to improve occupant protection.
Knee Impact Bolsters
The Knee Impact Bolsters help protect the
knees of the driver and the front passenger,
and position everyone for the best interaction
with the Advanced Front airbag.
Here are some simple steps you can take to
minimize the risk of harm from a deploying
airbag:
Children 12 years old and younger should
always ride buckled up in a rear seat.
WARNING!
Infants in rear-facing child restraints should
NEVER ride in the front seat of a vehicle with
a passenger front airbag. An airbag deployment can cause severe injury or death to
infants in that position.
Children that are not big enough to wear the
vehicle seat belt properly (see Section on Child
Restraints) should be secured in the rear seat
in child restraints or belt-positioning booster
seats. Older children who do not use child
restraints or belt-positioning booster seats
should ride properly buckled up in the rear
seat. Never allow children to slide the shoulder
belt behind them or under their arm.
If a child from 1 to 12 years old (not in a rear
facing child seat) must ride in the front passenger seat, move the seat as far back as possible
and use the proper child restraint. (Refer to
information on Child Restraints in this section.)
You should read the instructions provided with
your child restraint to make sure that you are
using it properly.
All occupants should ALWAYS wear their lap
and shoulder belts properly.
The driver and front passenger seats should be
moved back as far as practical to allow the
Advanced Front Airbags room to inflate.
Do not lean against the door. If your vehicle has
side airbags, and deployment occurs, the side
airbags will inflate forcefully into the space
between you and the door.
If the airbag system in this vehicle needs to be
modified to accommodate a disabled person,
contact the Customer Center. Phone numbers
are provided under ⬙If You Need Assistance⬙ in
Section 9 of this manual.
29
WARNING!
• Relying on the airbags alone could lead to
more severe injuries in a collision. The
airbags work with your seat belt to restrain
you properly. In some collisions, the airbags won’t deploy at all. Always wear your
seat belts even though you have airbags.
• Being too close to the steering wheel or
instrument panel during front airbag deployment could cause serious injury, including death. Airbags need room to inflate.
Sit back, comfortably extending your arms
to reach the steering wheel or instrument
panel.
• Side airbags also need room to inflate. Do
not lean against the door. Sit upright in the
center of the seat.
Airbag Deployment Sensors and
Controls
Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC)
The ORC is part of a regulated safety system
required for this vehicle.
30
The ORC determines if deployment of the front
and/or side airbags in a frontal or side collision
is required. Based on the impact sensors signals, a central electronic ORC deploys the
Advanced Front Airbags, SABIC airbags — if
equipped, and front seat belt pretensioners —
if equipped, as required, depending on severity and type of impact.
The side airbags will not deploy in all side
collisions. Side airbag deployment will depend
on the severity and type of collision.
Advanced Front Airbags are designed to provide additional protection by supplementing
the seat belts in certain frontal collisions depending on the severity and type of collision.
Advanced Front Airbags are not expected to
reduce the risk of injury in rear, side, or rollover
collisions.
Seat belts are necessary for your protection in
all collisions, and also are needed to help keep
you in position, away from an inflating airbag.
The Advanced Front Airbags will not deploy in
all frontal collisions, including some that may
produce substantial vehicle damage — for
example, some pole collisions, truck underrides, and angle offset collisions. On the other
hand, depending on the type and location of
impact, Advanced Front Airbags may deploy in
crashes with little vehicle front-end damage but
that produce a severe initial deceleration.
Because airbag sensors measure vehicle deceleration over time, vehicle speed and damage by themselves are not good indicators of
whether or not an airbag should have deployed.
The ORC monitors the readiness of the electronic parts of the system whenever the ignition
switch is in the START or ON position. If the key
is in the LOCK position, in the ACC position, or
not in the ignition, the airbags are not on and
will not inflate.
The ORC contains a backup power supply
system that may deploy the airbags even if the
battery loses power or it becomes disconnected prior to deployment.
Also, the ORC turns on the Airbag
Warning Light in the instrument
panel for approximately six to eight
seconds for a self-check when the
ignition is first turned on. After the
self-check, the Airbag Warning
Light will turn off. If the ORC detects a malfunction in any part of the system, it turns on the
Airbag Warning Light, either momentarily or
continuously. A single chime will sound if the
light comes on again after initial startup.
It also includes diagnostics that will illuminate
the instrument cluster Airbag Warning Light if a
malfunction is noted. The diagnostics also
record the nature of the malfunction.
WARNING!
Ignoring the Airbag Warning Light in your
instrument panel could mean you won’t have
the airbags to protect you in a collision. If the
light does not come on, stays on after you
start the vehicle, or if it comes on as you drive,
have the airbag system checked right away.
Driver and Passenger Airbag Inflator Units
The Driver and Passenger Airbag/Inflator Units
are located in the center of the steering wheel
and the right side of the instrument panel.
When the ORC detects a collision requiring the
airbags, it signals the inflator units. A large
quantity of non-toxic gas is generated to inflate
the Advanced Front Airbags. Different airbag
inflation rates are possible, based on the collision type and severity. The steering wheel hub
trim cover and the upper right side of the
instrument panel separate and fold out of the
way as the bags inflate to their full size. The
bags fully inflate in about 50 to 70 milliseconds.
This is about half of the time it takes to blink
your eyes. The bags then quickly deflate while
helping to restrain the driver and front passenger.
The driver front airbag gas is vented through
the vent holes in the sides of the airbag. The
passenger front airbag gas is vented through
the vent holes in the sides of the airbag. In this
way, the airbags do not interfere with your
control of the vehicle.
Supplemental Side Airbag Inflatable
Curtain (SABIC) Inflator Units — If
Equipped
During collisions where the impact is confined
to a particular area of the side of the vehicle,
the ORC may deploy the SABIC Airbags, depending on severity and type of collision. In
these events, the ORC will deploy the SABIC
only on the impact side of the vehicle.
A quantity of non-toxic gas is generated to
inflate the side curtain airbag. The inflating side
curtain airbag pushes the outside edge of the
headliner out of the way and covers the window. The airbag inflates in about 30 ms (about
one-quarter of the time that it takes to blink your
eyes) with enough force to injure you if you are
not belted and seated properly, or if items are
positioned in the area where the side curtain
airbag inflates. This especially applies to children. The side curtain airbag is only about
3-1/2 in (9 cm) thick when it is inflated.
Because airbag sensors estimate deceleration
over time, vehicle speed and damage are not
good indicators of whether or not an airbag
should have deployed.
31
NOTE:
In a rollover the pretensioners and/or SABIC
airbags may deploy on both sides of the
vehicle.
• Turn on the interior lights, which remain on as
long as the battery has power or until the
ignition key is removed.
Front and Side Impact Sensors
In front and side impacts, impact sensors aid
the ORC in determining appropriate response
to impact events. Additional sensors in the
ORC determine the level of airbag deployment
and provide verification.
If a Deployment Occurs
The front airbags are designed to deflate immediately after deployment.
Enhanced Accident Response System
In the event of an impact causing airbag deployment, if the communication network remains intact, and the power remains intact,
depending on the nature of the event the ORC
will determine whether to have the Enhanced
Accident Response System perform the following functions:
• Cut off fuel to the engine.
• Flash hazard lights as long as the battery
has power or until the ignition key is turned
off.
32
• Unlock the doors automatically.
NOTE:
Front and/or side airbags will not deploy in
all collisions. This does not mean something is wrong with the airbag system.
If you do have a collision which deploys the
airbags, any or all of the following may occur:
• The nylon airbag material may sometimes
cause abrasions and/or skin reddening to the
driver and front passenger as the airbags
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 airbags 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 airbag 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 airbags have
deployed. If you are involved in another collision, the airbags will not be in place to protect
you.
WARNING!
Deployed airbags and seat belt pretensioners
cannot protect you in another collision. Have
the airbags, seat belt pretensioners, and the
front passenger seat belt retractor assembly
replaced by an authorized dealer as soon as
possible. Also, have the Occupant Restraint
Controller (ORC) system serviced as well.
Maintaining Your Airbag System
WARNING!
• Modifications to any part of the airbag
system could cause it to fail when you need
it. You could be injured if the airbag 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 right
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 airbag system yourself. Be sure to tell
anyone who works on your vehicle that it
has an airbag system.
(Continued)
WARNING! (Continued)
• Do not attempt to modify any part of your
advanced airbag system. The airbag may
inflate accidentally or may not function
properly if modifications are made. Take
your vehicle to an authorized dealer for any
advanced airbag system service. If your
seat, including your trim cover and cushion,
needs to be serviced in any way (including
removal or loosening/tightening of seat attachment bolts), take the vehicle to your
authorized dealer. Only manufacturer approved seat accessories may be used. If it
is necessary to modify an advanced airbag
system for persons with disabilities, contact
your authorized dealer.
Airbag Warning Light
You will want to have the airbags
ready to inflate for your protection
in a collision. While the airbag system is designed to be maintenance free, if any of the following
occurs, have an authorized dealer service the
system immediately.
• The Airbag Warning Light does not come on
for approximately six to eight seconds when
the ignition switch is first turned ON.
• The light remains on after the approximate
six to eight-second interval.
• The light comes on and remains on while
driving.
NOTE:
If the speedometer, tachometer, or any engine related gauges are not working, the
Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) may
also be disabled. The airbags may not be
ready to inflate for your protection. Promptly
check the fuse block for blown fuses. Refer
to the label located on the inside of the fuse
block cover for the proper airbag fuses. See
your authorized dealer if the fuse is good.
33
Event Data Recorder (EDR)
In the event of an accident, your vehicle is
designed to record up to five seconds of specific vehicle data parameters (see list below) in
an event data recorder prior to the moment of
airbag deployment, or near deployment (if applicable), and up to a quarter second of either
high-speed deceleration data or change in
velocity during and/or after airbag deployment
or near-deployment. EDR data is ONLY recorded if an airbag deploys, or nearly deploys,
and is otherwise unavailable.
NOTE:
1. A near-deployment event occurs when
the airbag sensor detects severe vehicle
deceleration usually indicative of a crash,
but not severe enough to warrant airbag
deployment.
2. Under certain circumstances, EDR data
may not be recorded (e.g., loss of battery
power).
In conjunction with other data gathered during
a complete accident investigation, the electronic data may be used by Chrysler Group
LLC and others to learn more about the pos34
sible causes of crashes and associated injuries
in order to assess and improve vehicle performance. In addition to crash investigations initiated by Chrysler Group LLC, such investigations may be requested by customers,
insurance carriers, government officials, and
professional crash researchers, such as those
associated with universities, and with hospital
and insurance organizations.
In the event that an investigation is undertaken
by Chrysler Group LLC (regardless of initiative), the company or its designated representative will first obtain permission of the appropriate custodial entity for the vehicle (usually
the vehicle owner or lessee) before accessing
the electronic data stored, unless ordered to
download data by a court with legal jurisdiction
(i.e., pursuant to a warrant). A copy of the data
will be provided to the custodial entity upon
request. General data that does not identify
particular vehicles or crashes may be released
for incorporation in aggregate crash databases, such as those maintained by the government officials and various states. Data of a
potentially sensitive nature, such as would
identify a particular driver, vehicle, or crash, will
be treated confidentially. Confidential data will
not be disclosed by Chrysler Group LLC to any
third party except when:
1. Used for research purposes, such as to
match data with a particular crash record in an
aggregate database, provided confidentiality
of personal data is thereafter preserved.
2. Used in defense of litigation involving a
Chrysler Group LLC product.
3. Requested by police under a legal warrant.
4. Otherwise required by law.
Data parameters that are recorded:
• Diagnostic trouble code(s) and warning light
status for electronically-controlled safety
systems, including the airbag system
• Vehicle speed
• Engine RPM
• Brake switch status
• Pedal position
• And other parameters depending on vehicle
configuration

rather than in the front.
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
ensure you have the right seat for your child.
Use the restraint that is correct for your child.
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 can become so great that
you could not hold the child, no matter how
strong you are. The child and others could be
badly injured. Any child riding in your vehicle
should be in a proper restraint for the child’s
size.
Infants and Child Restraints
• Safety experts recommend that children ride
rearward-facing in the vehicle until they are
at least one year old and weigh at least
20 lbs (9 kg). Two types of child restraints
can be used rearward-facing: infant carriers
and convertible child seats.
• The infant carrier is only used rearwardfacing in the vehicle. It is recommended for
children who weigh up to about 20 lbs (9 kg).
Convertible child seats often have a higher
weight limit in the rearward-facing direction
than infant carriers do, so they can be used
35
rearward-facing by children who weigh more
than 20 lbs (9 kg) but are less than one year
old. Both types of child restraints are held in
the vehicle by the lap/shoulder belt or the
LATCH child restraint anchorage system
(Refer to LATCH — Child Seat Anchorage
System in this section.)
WARNING!
• Rearward-facing child seats must NEVER
be used in the front seat of a vehicle with
the front passenger airbag unless the airbag is turned off. An airbag deployment
could cause severe injury or death to infants in this position.
• 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 manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an
infant or child restraint.
(Continued)
36
WARNING! (Continued)
• A rearward-facing infant restraint should
only be used in a rear seat. A rearwardfacing infant restraint in the front seat may
be struck by a deploying passenger airbag
which may cause severe or fatal injury to
the infant.
Here are some tips for getting the most out of
your child restraint:
• Before buying any restraint system, make
sure that it has a label certifying that it meets
all applicable Safety Standards. Chrysler
Group LLC also recommends that you try a
child restraint in the vehicle seats where you
will use it before you buy it.
• The restraint must be appropriate for your
child’s weight and height. Check the label on
the restraint for weight and height limits.
• Carefully follow the instructions that come
with the restraint. If you install the restraint
improperly, it may not work when you need it.
• Except for the second row center seating
position, all passenger seat belts are
equipped with cinching latch plates. The
second row center position has an automatic
locking retractor. Both types of seat belts are
designed to keep the lap portion tight
around the child restraint so that it is not
necessary to use a locking clip. If the seat
belt has a cinching latch plate, pulling up on
the shoulder portion of the lap/shoulder belt
will tighten the belt (the cinching latch plate
will keep the belt tight; however, any seat belt
system will loosen with time, so check the
belt occasionally and pull it tight if necessary). For the second row center seat belt
with the automatic locking retractor, pull the
belt from the retractor until there is enough
allowance to pass it through the child restraint and slide the latch plate into the
buckle. Then, pull the belt until it is fully
extended from the retractor. Allow the belt to
return into the retractor, pulling on the excess
webbing to tighten the lap portion around the
child restraint. For additional information, refer to ⬙Automatic Locking Mode⬙ earlier in
this section.
• In the rear seat, you may have trouble tightening the lap/shoulder belt on the child restraint because the buckle or latch plate is
too close to the belt path opening on the
restraint. Disconnect the latch plate from the
buckle and twist the short buckle-end belt
several times to shorten it. Insert the latch
plate into the buckle with the release button
facing out.
• If the belt still cannot be tightened, or if
pulling and pushing on the restraint loosens
the belt, disconnect the latch plate from the
buckle, turn the buckle around, and insert
the latch plate into the buckle again. If you
still cannot make the child restraint secure,
try a different seating position.
• Buckle the child into the restraint exactly as
the manufacturer’s instructions tell you.
• When your child restraint is not in use, secure it in the vehicle with the seat belt or
remove it from the vehicle. Do not leave it
loose in the vehicle. In a sudden stop or
collision, it could strike the occupants or
seatbacks and cause serious personal injury.
Older Children and Child Restraints
Children who weigh more than 20 lbs (9 kg),
and who are older than one year, can ride
forward-facing in the vehicle. Forward-facing
child seats and convertible child seats used in
the forward-facing direction are for children
who weigh 20 to 40 lbs (9 to 18 kg), and who
are older than one year. These child seats are
also held in the vehicle by the lap/shoulder belt
or the LATCH child restraint anchorage system
(Refer to LATCH — Child Seat Anchorage
System in this section.)
The belt-positioning booster seat is for children
weighing more than 40 lbs (18 kg), but who are
still too small to fit the vehicle’s seat belts
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 lap/shoulder belt.
Children Too Large for Booster Seats
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 lap/shoulder belt in a rear seat.
• Make sure that the child is upright in the seat.
• The lap portion should be low on the hips
and as snug as possible.
• Check belt fit periodically. 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. Never allow a child to put the shoulder belt under an arm or behind the back.
LATCH — Child Seat Anchorage System
(Lower Anchors and Tether for CHildren)
Your vehicle’s rear seat is equipped with the
child restraint anchorage system called
LATCH. The LATCH system provides for the
installation of the child restraint without using
the vehicle’s seat belts, instead securing the
child restraint using lower anchorages and
upper tether straps from the child restraint to
the vehicle structure.
LATCH-compatible child restraint systems are
now available. However, because the lower
37
anchorages are to be introduced over a period
of years, child restraint systems having attachments for those anchorages will continue to
also have features for installation using the
vehicle’s seat belts. Child restraints having
tether straps and hooks for connection to the
top tether anchorages, have been available for
some time. For some older child restraints,
many child restraint manufacturers offer
add-on tether strap kits or retro-fit kits. You are
urged to take advantage of all the available
attachments provided with your child restraint
in any vehicle.
NOTE:
When using the LATCH attaching system to
install a child restraint, please ensure that
all seat belts not being used for occupant
restraints are stowed and out of reach of
children. Remind all children in the vehicle
that the seat belts are not toys and should
not be played with, and never leave your
child unattended in the vehicle.
All three rear seating positions have lower
anchorages that are capable of accommodating LATCH-compatible child seats having flex38
ible, webbing-mounted lower attachments.
Child seats with fixed lower attachments must
be installed in the outboard positions only.
Regardless of the specific type of lower attachment, NEVER install LATCH-compatible child
seats such that two seats share a common
lower anchorage.
If you are installing LATCH-compatible child
restraints in adjacent rear seating positions,
you can use the LATCH anchors or the vehicle’s seat belt for the outboard position, but you
must use the vehicle’s seat belt at the center
position. If your child restraints are not LATCHcompatible, you can only install the child restraints using the vehicle’s seat belts. For typical installation instructions, refer to “Installing
the LATCH-Compatible Child Restraint System”.
Installing the LATCH-Compatible Child
Restraint System
We urge you to carefully follow the directions of
the manufacturer when installing your child
restraint. Not all child restraint systems will be
installed as described here. Again, carefully
follow the installation instructions that were provided with the child restraint system.
The rear seat lower anchorages are round bars,
located at the rear of the seat cushion where it
meets the seatback, and 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 intersection of the seatback
and seat cushion surfaces.
Latch Anchorages
In addition, there are tether strap anchorages
behind each rear seating position located on
the back of the seat.
Tether Strap Mounting
Many, but not all restraint systems will be
equipped with separate straps on each side,
with each having a hook or connector for
attachment to the lower anchorage and a
means of adjusting the tension in the strap.
Forward-facing toddler restraints and some
rear-facing infant restraints will also be
equipped with a tether strap, a hook for attachment to the tether strap anchorage and a
means of adjusting the tension of the strap.
First, loosen the adjusters on the lower straps
and on the tether strap so that you can more
easily attach the hooks or connectors to the
vehicle anchorages. Next, attach the lower
hooks or connectors over the top of the anchorage bars, pushing aside the seat cover material. Then, locate the tether anchorage directly
behind the seat where you are placing the child
restraint and attach the tether strap to the
anchorage, being careful to route the tether
strap to provide the most direct path between
the anchor and the child restraint. Finally,
tighten all three straps as you push the child
restraint rearward and downward into the seat,
removing slack in the straps according to the
child restraint manufacturer’s instructions.
WARNING!
Improper installation of a child restraint to the
LATCH anchorages can lead to failure of an
infant or child restraint. The child could be
badly injured or killed. Follow the manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or child restraint.
Installing Child Restraints Using the
Vehicle Seat Belts
The passenger seat belts are equipped with
either cinching latch plates or automatic locking retractors, which are designed to keep the
lap portion tight around the child restraint so
that it is not necessary to use a locking clip. If
the seat belt has a cinching latch plate, pulling
up on the shoulder portion of the lap/shoulder
belt will tighten the belt. The cinching latch
plate will keep the belt tight; however, any seat
belt system will loosen with time, so check the
belt occasionally and pull it tight if necessary.
For seat belts having an Automatic Locking
Retractor (ALR), pull the belt from the retractor
until there is enough allowance to pass it
through the child restraint and slide the latch
plate into the buckle. Then, pull the belt until it
is fully extended from the retractor. Allow the
belt to return into the retractor, pulling on the
excess webbing to tighten the lap portion
around the child restraint. Refer to “Automatic
Locking Mode” earlier in this section.
In the rear seat, you may have trouble tightening the lap/shoulder belt on the child restraint
because the buckle or latch plate is too close to
the belt path opening on the restraint. Disconnect the latch plate from the buckle and twist
the short buckle-end belt several times to
shorten it. Insert the latch plate into the buckle
with the release button facing out.
39
should be restrained in the rear seat in pet
harnesses or pet carriers that are secured by
seat belts.
If the belt still can’t be tightened, or if pulling
and pushing on the restraint loosens the belt,
you may need to do something more. Disconnect the latch plate from the buckle, turn the
buckle around, and insert the latch plate into
the buckle again. If you still can’t make the child
restraint secure, try a different seating position.
ENGINE BREAK-IN
RECOMMENDATIONS
A long break-in period is not required for the
engine and drivetrain (transmission and axle) in
your vehicle.
To attach a child restraint tether strap:
Route the tether strap over the seatback and
headrests and attach the hook to the tether
anchor located on the back of the seat.
WARNING!
Always remove the subwoofer from the vehicle whenever the tether anchors behind the
subwoofer are required for proper installation
of a child restraining device. In the event of an
accident, or under severe vehicle maneuvers,
leaving the subwoofer unsecured in the vehicle could result in serious or fatal injury to
anyone in the vehicle.
40
Tether Strap Mounting
WARNING!
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.
Transporting Pets
Airbags 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
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. The recommended viscosity and quality grades are
shown in “Engine Oil”, under “Maintenance
Procedures” in section 7 of this manual. NONDETERGENT OR STRAIGHT MINERAL OILS
MUST NEVER BE USED.
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.
Additional Requirements For Diesel
Engine — If Equipped
During the first 1500 km avoid heavy loads, e.g.
driving at full throttle. Do not exceed 2/3 of the
maximum permissible engine speed for each
gear. Change gear in good time. Do not shift
down a gear manually in order to brake.
SAFETY TIPS
Transporting Passengers
NEVER TRANSPORT PASSENGERS IN THE
CARGO AREA.
WARNING!
• 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 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.
If you are required to drive with the trunk/liftgate
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.
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.
41
Safety Checks You Should Make
Inside the Vehicle
Seat Belts
Inspect the belt system periodically, checking
for cuts, frays, and loose parts. Damaged parts
must be replaced immediately. Do not disassemble or modify the system.
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 belt or
retractor condition, replace the belt.
Airbag Warning Light
The light should come on and remain on for six
to eight seconds as a bulb check when the
ignition switch is first turned ON. If the light is
not lit during starting, see your authorized
dealer. If the light stays on, flickers, or comes
on while driving, have the system checked by
an authorized dealer.
42
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.
Periodic Safety Checks You Should
Make Outside the Vehicle
Tires
Examine tires for excessive tread wear and
uneven wear patterns. Check for stones, nails,
glass, or other objects lodged in the tread.
Inspect the tread and sidewall for cuts and
cracks. Check the wheel nuts for tightness.
Check the tires (including spare) for proper
pressure.
Lights
Have someone observe the operation of exterior lights while you work the controls. Check
turn signal and high beam indicator lights on
the instrument panel.
Door Latches
Check for positive closing, latching, and locking.
Fluid Leaks
Check area under vehicle after overnight parking for fuel, engine coolant, oil, or other fluid
leaks. Also, if gasoline fumes are detected or if
fuel, power steering fluid, or brake fluid leaks
are suspected, the cause should be located
and corrected immediately.

fold anytime the knob is turned. The ignition
switch does not have to be in the ON position.
NOTE:
The power mirror knob must be used to
return the mirror from the folded position

Phone
To begin using your uconnect™ phone, you
must pair your compatible Bluetooth姞 enabled
cellular phone (refer to “Compatible Phones”
section to learn about the phone type).

• You will be asked to say a four-digit Personal
Identification Number (PIN), which you will
later need to enter into your cellular phone.
You can enter any four-digit PIN. You will not
need to remember this PIN after the initial
pairing process.
• For identification purposes, you will be
prompted to give the uconnect™ phone a
name for your cellular phone. Each cellular
phone that is paired should be given a
unique phone name.

your uconnect™ phone. The priority allows
the uconnect™ phone to know which cellular
phone to use if multiple cellular phones are
in the vehicle at the same time. For example,
53
if priority 3 and priority 5 phones are present

Front ParkSense姞 Sensors
The six Front ParkSense姞 sensors, located in
the front fascia/bumper, monitor the area in
front of the vehicle that is within the sensors
field of view. The monitored area seems oval in
shape. The sensors can detect obstacles from
approximately 11.8 in (30 cm) up to 59 in
(150 cm) from the front fascia/bumper in the
horizontal direction, depending on the location
and orientation of the obstacle and the type of
obstacle.
Front ParkSense姞 Warning Display
The Front ParkSense姞 warning display (located
on the instrument panel), provides both audio
and visual warnings to indicate the distance
between the front fascia and the detected
obstacle.
Front ParkSense姞 LED Display
When the ignition switch is turned to the ON
position, the warning display will turn ON all of
its LEDs for about one second. Each side of the
warning display has six yellow and two red
LEDs. The vehicle is close to the obstacle when
the red LED is ON. The system illuminates the
two outer most yellow LEDs when it is ON and
detecting no obstacles.
When the obstacle is detected at a distance of
about 59 in (150 cm) from the front fascia/
bumper, some of the LEDs of the warning
display will be ON. As the distance of the
detected obstacle to the front fascia/bumper
decreases, more LEDs are illuminated. When
the warning display has the first red LEDs ON,
the warning display will actuate an intermittent
tone for about 10 seconds. The radio will be
muted while the tone is actuated.
When the detected obstacle is about 11.8 in
(30 cm) from the front fascia/bumper, the warning display will actuate a continuous tone for
about 10 seconds and it will turn ON all LEDs,
including both red LEDs, on the corresponding
side of the display. The radio will be muted
while the tone is actuated.
Enable/Disable ParkSense姞
ParkSense姞 can be enabled and disabled with
a switch located in the switch bank of the
instrument panel.
When the switch is pressed to disable the system, the instrument
cluster will display the “PARK ASSIST DISABLED” message. Refer
to “Electronic Vehicle Information Center
(EVIC)” in Section 4, for further information.
When the shift lever is moved to REVERSE and
the system is disabled, the instrument cluster
will actuate a single chime, once per ignition
cycle, and it will display the message.
The ParkSense姞 switch LED will be ON when
ParkSense姞 is disabled or defective. The ParkSense姞 switch LED will be OFF when the
system is enabled.
Service the ParkSense姞
When ParkSense姞 is defective, the instrument
cluster will actuate a single chime, once per
ignition cycle, and it will display the “SERVICE
PARK ASSIST SYSTEM” message. Refer to
“Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)”
in Section 4 for further information. The ParkSense姞 display will also light the red LEDs
indicating a problem. Under this condition
ParkSense姞 will not operate.
If “SERVICE PARK ASSIST SYSTEM” appears
in the Electronic Vehicle Information Center
(EVIC) after making sure the fascia/bumper is
clean, please see your authorized dealer.
93
Cleaning the ParkSense姞
Clean the ParkSense姞 sensors with water, car
wash soap and a soft cloth. Do not use rough or
hard cloths. Do not scratch or poke the sensors. Otherwise, you could damage the sensors.
ParkSense姞 System Usage
Precautions
NOTE:
• Ensure that the front and rear bumpers
are free of dirt and debris to keep the
ParkSense姞 system operating properly.
• Jackhammers, large trucks, and other vibrations could affect the performance of
ParkSense姞.
• When you turn ParkSense姞 off, the instrument cluster will display “PARK ASSIST
DISABLED.” Furthermore, once you turn
ParkSense姞 off, it remains off until you
turn it on again, even if you cycle the
ignition key.
94
• When you move the shift lever to the
REVERSE position and ParkSense姞 is
turned off, a single chime will sound once
per ignition cycle and the instrument
cluster will display “PARK ASSIST DISABLED.”
• ParkSense姞, when on, will MUTE the radio
when it is sounding a tone.
• If a ParkSense姞 system malfunction occurs, a single chime will sound once per
ignition cycle. In addition, the Electronic
Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) will display “SERVICE PARK ASSIST SYSTEM”
and the LED in the ParkSense姞 switch will
illuminate. If this occurs, see your authorized dealer for service.
• Clean the ParkSense姞 sensors regularly,
taking care not to scratch or damage
them. The sensors must not be covered
with ice, snow, slush, mud, dirt or debris.
Failure to do so can result in the system
not working properly. The system might
not detect an obstacle near the fascia/
bumper, or it could provide a false indication that an obstacle is present.
• Objects must not be within 12 in (30 cm)
from the rear fascia/bumper while driving
the vehicle. Failure to do so can result in
the system misinterpreting a close object
as a sensor problem, causing the “SERVICE PARK ASSIST SYSTEM” message to
be displayed in the instrument cluster.
CAUTION!
• ParkSense姞 is only a parking aid and it is
unable to recognize every obstacle, including small obstacles. Parking curbs might be
temporarily detected or not detected at all.
Obstacles located above or below the sensors will not be detected when they are in
close proximity.
• The vehicle must be driven slowly when
using ParkSense姞 to be able to stop in time
when the obstacle is detected. It is recommended that the driver looks over his/her
shoulder when using ParkSense姞.
WARNING!
• Drivers must be careful when backing up
even when using the ParkSense姞 system.
Always check carefully behind your vehicle,
look behind you, and be sure to check for
pedestrians, animals, other vehicles, obstructions, and blind spots before backing
up. You are responsible for safety and must
continue to pay attention to your surroundings. Failure to do so can result in serious
injury or death.
(Continued)
WARNING! (Continued)
• Before using ParkSense姞, it is strongly
recommended that the ball mount and hitch
ball assembly is disconnected from the
vehicle when the vehicle is not used for
towing. Failure to do so can result in injury
or damage to vehicles or obstacles because the hitch ball will be much closer to
the obstacle than the rear fascia when the
warning display turns the red LEDs ON.
Also, the ParkSense姞 sensors could detect
the ball mount and hitch ball assembly,
depending on its size and shape, giving a
false indication that an obstacle is behind
the vehicle.
PARKVIEW姞 REAR BACK UP
CAMERA — IF EQUIPPED
Your vehicle may be equipped with the ParkView姞 Rear Back Up Camera that allows you to
see an on-screen image of the rear of your
vehicle whenever the shift lever is put into

liftgate.
WARNING!
Drivers must be careful when backing up even
when using the ParkView姞 Rear Back Up
Camera. Always check carefully behind your
vehicle, and be sure to check for pedestrians,
animals, other vehicles, obstructions, or blind
spots before backing up. You are responsible
for the safety of your surroundings and must
continue to pay attention while backing up.
Failure to do so can result in serious injury or
death.
CAUTION!
• To avoid vehicle damage, ParkView姞
should only be used as a parking aid. The
ParkView姞 camera is unable to view every
obstacle or object in your drive path.

ROOF LUGGAGE RACK — IF
EQUIPPED
The crossbars and siderails are designed to
carry the weight on vehicles equipped with a
luggage rack. The load must not exceed
150 lbs (68 kg), and should be uniformly distributed over the luggage rack crossbars.
NOTE:
If not equipped with crossbars, your authorized dealer can order and install MOPAR姞
crossbars built specifically for this roof rack
system.
Distribute cargo weight evenly on the roof rack
crossbars. The roof rack does not increase the
total load carrying capacity of the vehicle. Be
sure the total load of cargo inside the vehicle
plus that on the external rack does not exceed
the maximum vehicle load capacity.
(Continued)
103
The optional crossbars must be installed using
the correct orientation (the longer crossbar
toward the front).
The optional crossbars must also be secured in
one of the seven detent positions marked with
an arrow on the siderails to prevent movement.
To move the crossbars, loosen the thumb
screws, located at the upper edge of each
crossbar, approximately eight turns, then move
the crossbar to the desired position, keeping
the crossbars parallel to the rack frame. Once
the crossbar is in one of the seven detent
positions, retighten the thumb screws to lock
the crossbar into position.
NOTE:
• To help control wind noise when the
crossbars are not in use, place the front
crossbar in the second detent from the
front of the vehicle and the rear crossbar
in the last detent closest to the rear of the
vehicle.
• If the rear crossbar (or any metallic object) is placed over the satellite radio
antenna (if equipped), you may experience interruption of satellite radio recep104
tion. For improved satellite radio reception, place the rear crossbar in the second
detent from the rear of the vehicle when
not in use.
• The grab handles on the back of the
vehicle (if equipped) are not to be used as
a towing feature.
CAUTION!
• To prevent damage to the roof of your
vehicle, DO NOT carry any loads on the
roof rack without the crossbars installed.
The load should be secured and placed on
top of the crossbars, not directly on the
roof. If it is necessary to place the load on
the roof, place a blanket or some other
protection between the load and the roof
surface.
• To avoid damage to the roof rack and
vehicle, do not exceed the maximum roof
rack load capacity of 150 lbs (68 kg).
Always distribute heavy loads as evenly as
possible and secure the load appropriately.
(Continued)
CAUTION! (Continued)
• Long loads which extend over the windshield, such as wood panels or surfboards,
or loads with large frontal area should be
secured to both the front and rear of the
vehicle.
• Travel at reduced speeds and turn corners
carefully when carrying large or heavy
loads on the roof rack. Wind forces, due to
natural causes or nearby truck traffic, can
add sudden upward lift to a load. This is
especially true on large flat loads and may
result in damage to the cargo or your
vehicle.
WARNING!
Cargo must be securely tied before driving
your vehicle. Improperly secured loads can fly
off the vehicle, particularly at high speeds,
resulting in personal injury or property damage. Follow the roof rack cautions when carrying cargo on your roof rack.

DESCRIPTION
1. Speedometer
Indicates vehicle speed.
2. 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 Program (ESP) system. In this case, the light will
remain on until the condition has been corrected. If the problem is related to the brake
112
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 an accident. 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 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 position.
NOTE:
This light shows only that the parking brake
is applied. It does not show the degree of
brake application.
3. Turn Signal Indicator
The arrows will flash with the exterior turn
signals when the turn signal lever is operated. A tone will chime if the turn signals are left on for more than 1 mile (1.6 km).
4. High Beam Indicator Light
Indicates that headlights are on high
beam.
5. Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL)
The Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL)
is part of an onboard diagnostic system called OBD II that monitors engine and automatic transmission control systems. The light will illuminate
when the key is in the ON position before
engine start. If the bulb does not come on when
turning the key from OFF to ON, have the
condition checked promptly.
Certain conditions such as a loose or missing
gas cap, poor fuel quality, etc., may illuminate
the light after engine start. The vehicle should
be serviced if the light stays on through several
of your typical driving cycles. In most situations, the vehicle will drive normally and will not
require towing.
CAUTION!
Prolonged driving with the MIL on could cause
damage to the engine control system. It also
could affect fuel economy and drivability. If the
MIL is flashing, severe catalytic converter
damage and power loss will soon occur. Immediate service is required.
WARNING!
A malfunctioning catalytic converter, as referenced above, can reach higher temperatures
than in normal operating conditions. This can
cause a fire if you drive slowly or park over
flammable substances such as dry plants or
wood or cardboard, etc. This could result in
death or serious injury to the driver, occupants
or others.
6. Airbag Warning Light
This light turns on and remains on
for six to eight seconds as a bulb
check when the ignition switch is
first turned ON. If the light is not on
during starting, stays on, or turns
on while driving, have the system
inspected by an authorized dealer as soon as
possible.
7. Anti-Lock Brake (ABS) Light
This light monitors the Anti-Lock
Brake System (ABS). The light will
turn on when the ignition switch is
turned to the ON position and may
stay on for as long as four seconds.
If the ABS light remains on or turns on while
driving, it indicates that the Anti-Lock portion of
the brake system is not functioning and that
service is required. However, the conventional
brake system will continue to operate normally
if the BRAKE warning light is not on.
If the ABS light is on, the brake system should
be serviced as soon as possible to restore the
benefits of Anti-Lock brakes. If the ABS light
113
does not turn on when the Ignition switch is
turned to the ON position, have the light inspected by an authorized dealer.
8. Tachometer
Indicates the engine speed in revolutions per
minute (RPM).
9. Vehicle Security Light
This light will flash rapidly for approximately 15 seconds when the
vehicle theft alarm is arming. The
light will flash at a slower speed
continuously after the alarm is set.
The security light will also come on
for about three seconds when the ignition is first
turned on.
10. Oil Pressure Warning Light
This light indicates low engine oil pressure. The light should turn on momentarily when the engine is started. If the
light turns on while driving, stop the vehicle and
shut off the engine as soon as possible. A
chime will sound for four minutes when this light
turns on.
114
Do not operate the vehicle until the cause is
corrected. This light does not indicate how
much oil is in the engine. The engine oil level
must be checked under the hood.
11. Electronic Stability Program (ESP)
Indicator Light / Traction Control System
(TCS) Indicator Light
If this indicator light flashes during
acceleration, apply as little throttle
as possible. While driving, ease up
on the accelerator. Adapt your
speed and driving to the prevailing
road conditions, and do not switch
off the Electronic Stability Program (ESP), or
Traction Control System (TCS).
12. Low Fuel Warning Light
When the fuel level reaches approximately 8.7 Liters (2.3 U.S. Gallons) this
light will come on and remain on until
fuel is added. The “Low Fuel Warning
Light” may turn on and off again, especially
during and after hard braking, accelerations, or
turns. This occurs due to the shifting of the fuel
in the tank. Also, a single chime will sound.
13. Temperature Gauge
The temperature gauge shows engine coolant
temperature. Any reading within the normal
range indicates that the engine cooling system
is operating satisfactorily.
The gauge pointer will likely indicate a higher
temperature when driving in hot weather, up
mountain grades, or when towing a trailer. It
should not be allowed to exceed the upper
limits of the normal operating range.
CAUTION!
Driving with a hot engine cooling system could
damage your vehicle. If the temperature
gauge reads “H” pull over and stop the vehicle. Idle the vehicle with the air conditioner
turned off until the pointer drops back into the
normal range. If the pointer remains on the “H”
and you hear continuous chimes, turn the
engine off immediately, and call an authorized
dealership for service.
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 dealership for service if your vehicle overheats. If you decide to look under
the hood yourself, see Section 7 of this
manual. Follow the warnings under the Cooling System Pressure Cap paragraph.

a soft cloth, wiping from center to edge.
3. Do not apply paper or tape to the disc; avoid
scratching the disc.
4. Do not use solvents such as benzene, thinner, cleaners, or anti-static sprays.
5. Store the disc in its case after playing.
6. Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight.
7. Do not store the disc where temperatures
may become too high.
NOTE:
If you experience difficulty in playing a particular disc, it may be damaged (i.e.,
scratched, reflective coating removed, a
hair, moisture or dew on the disc) oversized,
or have protection encoding. Try a known
good disc before considering disc player
service.
RADIO OPERATION AND CELLULAR
PHONES
Under certain conditions, the cellular phone
being on in your vehicle can cause erratic or
noisy performance from your radio. This condition may be lessened or eliminated by relocating the cellular phone antenna. This condition
is not harmful to the radio. If your radio performance does not satisfactorily “clear” by the
repositioning of the antenna, it is recommended that the radio volume be turned down
or off during cellular phone operation.
CLIMATE CONTROLS
Automatic Temperature Control
(ATC)
The Automatic Temperature Control (ATC) system automatically maintains the interior comfort
level desired by the driver and passenger.
Automatic Climate Controls (ATC)
NOTE:
The numbers on the temperature dial represent a comfort setting when the Mode knob
is set to Auto, and not the actual air temperature.
Begin by turning the right mode knob to AUTO,
and place the blower control (left knob) to
either LO AUTO or HI AUTO. The LO AUTO
position should be used for front seat occupants only. The HI AUTO position should be
used when more air flow is desired, or when
rear seat occupants are present. Dial in the
comfort setting you would like the system to
maintain by rotating the driver’s or passenger’s
control knob. Once the comfort level is selected the system will maintain that level automatically using the heating system. Should the
desired comfort level require air conditioning,
the system will automatically make the adjustment.
You will experience the greatest efficiency by
simply allowing the system to function automatically. Selecting the OFF position on the fan
control stops the system completely.
NOTE:
The temperature setting can be adjusted at
any time without affecting automatic control
operation. However, if the driver and/or passenger temperature knobs are set to the full
hot or full cold positions, the air temperature
out of the ducts will be full hot or full cold
respectively. With the temperature setting in
these positions, the system does not attempt automatic comfort control.
The air conditioning in this system is
automatic. Pressing this button while in
AUTO mode will cause the LED to flash
three times and remain off. This indicates that the system is in AUTO and requesting the air conditioning is not necessary.
The system will automatically control recirculation. However, pressing this button will temporarily put
the system in Recirculation mode.
This can be used when outside
conditions such as smoke, odors,
dust, or high humidity are present. This will
cause the LED to illuminate.
131
NOTE:
• The surface of the climate control panel,
and the top center of the instrument panel
should be kept free of debris due to the
climate control sensor’s location. Mud on
the windshield may also cause poor operation of this system.
• To provide you with maximum comfort in
the automatic mode, during cold start-ups
the blower fan will remain off until the
engine warms up. However, the fan will
engage immediately if the defrost mode is
selected or if you manually select a
blower speed.
• Under certain conditions (after the vehicle
is turned off) the climate control system
may recalibrate and a noise may be heard
for 20 seconds. This is part of normal
operation.
132
• Most of the time, when in Automatic operation, you can temporarily put the system into Recirculation mode by pressing
the Recirculation button. However, under
certain conditions in automatic the system is blowing air out of the defrost vents.
When these conditions are present and
the Recirculation button is pressed, the
indicator will flash and remain off. This
tells you that you are unable to go into
Recirculation mode at this time. If you
would like to go to Recirculation mode,
you must first move your mode knob to
panel, panel/floor or floor, then hit the
Recirculation button. This feature will reduce the possibility of window fogging.
Manual Operation
This system offers a full complement of manual
override features which consist of Blower Preferred Automatic, Mode Preferred Automatic
with Manual Air Temperature Control and
Manual. This means the customer can override
the blower, mode and disable automatic temperature control completely.
NOTE:
• For vehicles equipped with Remote Start,
the climate controls will not function during Remote Start operation if the blower
control is left in the “O” (Off) position.
• Please read the Automatic Temperature
Control Operation Chart below for details.
133
NOTE:
Regardless of the type of operation, when a
temperature knob is set to the full clockwise
or full counterclockwise position, the system will deliver full hot or full cold air out of
the ducts, respectively.
The operator can override the AUTO mode
setting and select the direction of the air by
rotating the right mode knob to one of the
following positions. When the Mode is set to
any position other than AUTO, The automatic
control of air temperature is disabled. The user
must adjust the temperature knobs to obtain
the desired temperature.
• Defrost
Air is directed to the windshield through
the outlets at the base of the windshield. Air is also directed to the front
door windows through the side window demister grilles. Some airflow is delivered to the floor
while in defrost so that comfort can be maintained.
134
NOTE:
The defrost mode is not automatically selected. It must be manually selected, when
desired.
gers. These registers can be closed to block
airflow. The center console outlets deliver conditioned air while the floor outlets deliver heated
air.
• Defrost/Floor
Air flows through the front and rear floor
outlets and the outlets at the base of the
windshield. Air is also directed to the
front door windows through the side
window demister grilles. Some airflow is delivered to the floor while in defrost so that comfort
can be maintained.
• Panel
Air flows through the outlets located in the
instrument panel. Air flows through the
registers in the back of the center console
to the rear seat passengers. These registers
can be closed to block airflow.
• Floor
Air flows through the floor outlets located under the instrument panel and
into the rear seating area through vents
under the front seats. Some airflow is delivered
to defrost while in floor mode, so that comfort
can be maintained.
• Bi-Level
Air flows both through the outlets located
in the instrument panel and those located on the floor. Air flows through the
registers in the back of the center console, and
under the front seats to the rear seat passen-
Depress this button to turn on and off
the air conditioning during manual operation only. Conditioned outside air is
then directed through the outlets selected on the mode control dial. The button
includes an LED that illuminates when manual
operation is selected.
NOTE:
To manually control the air conditioning, the
mode selector must be moved out of the
AUTO position.
This button can be used to block
out smoke, odors, dust, high humidity, or if rapid cooling is desired. The Recirculation mode
should only be used temporarily.
The button includes an LED that
illuminates, indicating that the Recirculation
mode is active. You may use this feature separately.
NOTE:
Extended use of recirculation may cause the
windows to fog. If the interior of the windows begins to fog, press the Recirculation
icon button to return to outside air. Some
temperature/humidity conditions will cause
captured interior air to condense on windows and hamper visibility. For this reason,
the system will not allow Recirculation to be
selected while in the defrost or defrost/floor
modes. Attempting to use recirculation
while in these modes will cause the LED in
the button to blink and then turn off.
Summer Operation
The engine cooling system in air conditioned
vehicles must be protected with a high-quality
antifreeze coolant to provide proper corrosion
protection and to protect against engine overheating. A solution of 50% ethylene glycol
antifreeze coolant and 50% water is recommended. Refer to “Maintenance Procedures” in
Section 7 of this manual for proper coolant
selection.
Winter Operation
Use of the air Recirculation mode during winter
months is not recommended because it may
cause window fogging.
NOTE:
Refer to the “Operating Tips” chart (for
Manual A/C Control) in this section for suggested control settings in different weather
conditions.
Vacation Storage
Anytime you store your vehicle, or keep it out of
service (i.e. vacation) for two weeks or more,
run the air conditioning system at idle for about
five minutes in the fresh air and high blower
setting. This will ensure adequate system lubrication to minimize the possibility of compressor
damage when the system is started again.
Window Fogging
Interior fogging on the windshield can be
quickly removed by turning the mode selector
to Defrost, and turning on the high blower. The
Defrost/Floor mode can be used to maintain a
clear windshield and provide sufficient heating.
If side window fogging becomes a problem
increase blower speed. Vehicle windows tend
to fog on the inside in mild but rainy or humid
weather.
NOTE:
Recirculation without A/C should not be
used for long periods as fogging may occur.
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.

to the START position and release it as soon as
the starter engages. The starter motor will continue to run, and it will disengage automatically
when the engine is running. If the engine fails to
start, the starter will disengage automatically in
10 seconds. If this occurs, turn the ignition
switch to the LOCK position, wait 10 to 15 seconds, then repeat the “Normal Starting” procedure.
Extreme Cold Weather
(Below ⫺20°F or ⫺29°C)
To ensure reliable starting at these temperatures, use of an externally powered electric
engine block heater (available from your authorized dealer) is recommended.
WARNING!
• Never pour fuel or other flammable liquids
into the throttle body air inlet opening in an
attempt to start the vehicle. This could
result in a flash fire causing serious personal injury.
• Do not attempt to push or tow your vehicle
to get it started. Vehicles equipped with an
automatic transmission cannot be started
this way. Unburned fuel could enter the
catalytic converter and, once the engine
has started, ignite and damage the converter and vehicle. If the vehicle has a
discharged battery, booster cables may be
used to obtain a start from a booster battery
or the battery in another vehicle. This type
of start can be dangerous if done improperly. Refer to Section 6 for proper jumpstarting procedures and follow them carefully.
141
If the engine fails to start after you have followed the “Normal Starting” or “Extreme Cold
Weather” procedures, it may be flooded. To
clear any excess fuel, push the accelerator
pedal all the way to the floor and hold it. Then,
turn the ignition switch to the START position
and release it as soon as the starter engages.
The starter motor will disengage automatically
in 10 seconds. Once this occurs, release the
accelerator pedal, turn the ignition switch to the
LOCK position, wait 10 to 15 seconds, then
repeat the “Normal Starting” procedure.
CAUTION!
To prevent damage to the starter, wait 10 to
15 seconds before trying again.
After Starting
The idle speed is controlled automatically, and
it will decrease as the engine warms up.
Normal Starting — Diesel Engines
Observe the following when the engine is operating.
• All message center lights are off.
• Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) is off.
142
• Low Oil Pressure Light is off.
Cold Weather Precautions
Operation in ambient temperature below 32°F
(0°C) may require special considerations. The
following chart suggests these options.
*No. 1 Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel (ULSD)
should only be used where extended arctic
conditions (-10°F/-23°C) exist.
NOTE:
• Use of Climatized ULSD Diesel Fuel or
Number 1 ULSD Diesel Fuel results in a
noticeable decrease in fuel economy.
• Climatized ULSD Diesel Fuel is a blend of
Number 2 ULSD and Number 1 ULSD
Diesel Fuels, which reduces the temperature at which wax crystals form in fuel.
NOTE:
This engine requires the use of “Ultra Low
Sulfur Diesel Fuel.” Use of incorrect fuel
could result in exhaust system damage. Refer to “Fuel Requirements” in this section
for further details on fuel recommendations.
Battery Blanket Usage
A battery loses 60% of its cranking power as
the battery temperature decreases to 0°F
(-18°C). For the same decrease in temperature,
the engine requires twice as much power to
crank at the same RPM. The use of battery
blankets will greatly increase starting capability
at low temperatures. Suitable battery blankets
are available from your authorized MOPAR姞
dealer.
Engine Starting Procedure
WARNING!
NEVER pour fuel or other flammable liquid
into the air inlet opening in an attempt to start
the vehicle. This could result in a flash fire
causing serious personal injury.
1. The shift lever must be in the NEUTRAL or
PARK position before you can start the engine.
2. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
3. Watch for the “Wait To Start Light” in the
instrument cluster. Refer to “Instrument Cluster”
in Section 4 of this manual. It will glow for two to
ten seconds or more, depending on engine
temperature. When the “Wait To Start Light”
goes out, the engine is ready to start.
4. Tip Start Feature
Do not press the accelerator. Use the Fob with
Integrated Key (FOBIK) to briefly turn the ignition switch to the START position and then
release it. The starter motor will continue to run,
and it will automatically disengage when the
engine is running. If the engine fails to start, the
starter will disengage automatically in 20 seconds. The starter can be disengaged by turning the ignition switch to the OFF position, if
required.
5. After the engine starts, allow it to idle for
approximately 30 seconds before driving. This
allows oil to circulate and lubricate the turbocharger.
Avoid prolonged idling in ambient temperatures below 0°F (-18°C). 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 and injector nozzles. Also,
the unburned fuel can enter the crankcase,
diluting the oil and causing rapid wear to the
engine.
Engine Warm-Up
Avoid full throttle operation when the engine is
cold. When starting a cold engine, bring the
engine up to operating speed slowly to allow
the oil pressure to stabilize as the engine
warms up.
NOTE:
High-speed, no-load running of a cold engine can result in excessive white smoke
and poor engine performance. No-load engine speeds should be kept under 1,200
RPM during the warm-up period, especially
in cold ambient temperature conditions.
If temperatures are below 32°F (0°C), operate
the engine at moderate speeds for five minutes
before full loads are applied.
Engine Idling - In Cold Weather
Avoid prolonged idling in ambient temperatures below 0°F (-18°C). 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 and injector nozzles. Also,
the unburned fuel can enter the crankcase,
diluting the oil and causing rapid wear to the
engine.
Stopping The Engine
Before turning off your turbo diesel engine,
always allow the engine to return to normal idle
speed and run for several seconds. This assures proper lubrication of the turbocharger.
This is particularly necessary after any period
of hard driving.
Idle the engine a few minutes before routine
shutdown. After full load operation, idle the
engine three to five minutes before shutting it
down. This idle period will allow the lubricating
143
oil and coolant to carry excess heat away from
the combustion chamber, bearings, internal
components, and turbocharger. This is especially important for turbocharged, charge air
cooled engines.
AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
CAUTION!
Damage to the transmission may occur if the
following precautions are not observed:
• Shift into PARK only after the vehicle has
come to a complete stop.
• Shift into or out of REVERSE only after the
vehicle has come to a complete stop and
the engine is at idle speed.
• Do not shift from REVERSE, PARK, or
NEUTRAL into any forward gear when the
engine is above idle speed.
• Before shifting into any gear, make sure
your foot is firmly on the brake pedal.
WARNING!
It is dangerous to move the shift lever out of
PARK or NEUTRAL if the engine speed is
higher than idle speed. If your foot is not firmly
on 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 when your foot is
firmly on the brake pedal.
Key Ignition Park Interlock
This vehicle is equipped with a Key Ignition
Park Interlock which requires the shift lever to
be placed in PARK prior to rotating the ignition
switch to the LOCK position. The key fob can
only be removed from the ignition switch when
the ignition switch is in the LOCK position and
once removed the shift lever is locked in PARK.
Brake/Transmission Shift Interlock
System
This vehicle is equipped with a Brake Transmission Shift Interlock System (BTSI) that holds the
shift lever in the PARK position when the igni-
144
tion switch is in the LOCK position. To move the
shift lever out of the PARK position, the ignition
switch must be turned to the ON or START
position (engine running or not) and the brake
pedal must be pressed.
Brake/Transmission Interlock
Manual Override
Your vehicle may be equipped with a shift lock
manual override. The manual override may be
used in the event that the shift lever should fail
to move from PARK with the ignition switch in
the ON position and the brake pedal pressed.
To operate the shift lock manual override, perform the following steps:
1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position
without starting the engine.
2. Firmly set the parking brake.
3. Using a flat-bladed screwdriver, carefully
remove the shift lock manual override cover,
which is located on the PRNDL bezel.
4. Press and maintain firm pressure on the
brake pedal.
5. Using the screwdriver, reach into the manual
override opening. Press and hold the shift lock
lever down.
Five–Speed Automatic Transmission
The electronically-controlled transmission provides a precise shift schedule. The transmission electronics are self-calibrating; therefore,
the first few shifts on a new vehicle may be
somewhat abrupt. This is a normal condition,
and precision shifts will develop within a few
hundred miles/kilometers.
NOTE:
After selecting any gear range, wait a moment to allow the selected gear to engage
before accelerating. This is especially important when the engine is cold. If there is a
need to restart the engine, be sure to turn
the ignition switch to the LOCK position
before restarting. Transmission gear engagement may be delayed after restarting
the engine if the ignition switch is not turned
to the LOCK position first.
WARNING!
• Never use the PARK position as a substitute for the parking brake. Always apply the
parking brake fully when parked to guard
against vehicle movement and possible
injury or damage.
• It is dangerous to move the shift lever out of
PARK or NEUTRAL if the engine speed is
higher than idle speed. If your foot is not
firmly on 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
when your right foot is firmly on the brake
pedal.
PARK
This range supplements the parking brake by
locking the transmission. The engine can be
started in this range. Never use PARK while the
vehicle is in motion. Apply the parking brake
REVERSE
This range is for moving the vehicle backward.
Use only after the vehicle has come to a
complete stop.
Gear Ranges

6. Move the shift lever into the NEUTRAL position.
7. The vehicle may then be started in NEUTRAL.
Have your vehicle inspected by your local
authorized dealer if the shift lock manual override has been used.
when leaving the vehicle in this range. Always
apply the parking brake first, then place the
shift lever into the PARK position.
145
NEUTRAL
This range is used when vehicle is standing for
prolonged periods with engine running. Engine
may be started in this range. Set the parking
brake if you must leave the vehicle.
NOTE:
Towing the vehicle, coasting, or driving for
any other reason with the shift lever in
NEUTRAL can result in severe transmission
damage. Refer to “Recreational Towing” in
Section 5 and “Towing a Disabled Vehicle”
in Section 6 of this manual.
DRIVE
This range should only be selected when the
vehicle is at a complete stop and the brakes
are firmly applied. The transmission automatically upshifts through fifth gear. The DRIVE
position provides optimum driving characteristics under all normal operating conditions.
Electronic Range Select (ERS) Operation
The Electronic Range Select (ERS) shift control
allows you to move the shift lever left (-) or right
(+) when the shift lever is in the DRIVE position,
allowing you to limit the highest available gear.
For example, if the driver shifts the transmission
146
into ERS 3 (third gear), the transmission will
never shift above third gear, but can shift down
to 2 (second) or 1 (first), when needed.
NOTE:
• If you pull and hold (not tap) the shift lever
to the left (-), the transmission will downshift to the lowest gear that can be attained without overrevving the engine.
The display will show the gear the vehicle
is in and will limit the top gear to the one
displayed.
• If you pull and hold (not tap) the shift lever
to the right (+), the transmission will exit
the gear limiting mode and shift to the
appropriate gear. The display will read
ⴖDⴖ.
3.7L and 3.0L Diesel Engine
When in the DRIVE position, the first tap to the
left (-) will shift down one gear and will display
that gear. For example, if you are in DRIVE and
are in 5th gear, when you tap the shift lever one
time to the left (-), the transmission will downshift to 4th gear and the display will show 4.
Another tap to the left (-) will shift the transmission into 3rd gear.
5.7L Engine
On vehicles equipped with 5.7L engines, use of
ERS (or TOW/HAUL mode) also enables an
additional underdrive gear which is not normally used during through-gear accelerations.
This additional gear improves vehicle performance and cooling capability when towing a
trailer on certain grades. ERS 1, 2, and 3 are
underdrive gears; ERS 4 is direct drive. ERS 5
(Overdrive) is the same as the normal 4th gear.
When in the DRIVE position in 1st through 4th
gear, the first tap to the left (-) will display the
ERS designation for the current gear (the transmission will not downshift). For example, if you
are in DRIVE and are in 3rd (direct) gear, when
you tap the shift lever one time to the left (-), the
display will show 4 (ERS 4 is direct gear).
Another tap to the left (-) will shift the transmission down to ERS 3 (the added underdrive
gear). When in the DRIVE position in 5th gear,
the first tap to the left (-) will downshift the
transmission and display 5 (ERS 5 is the same
as normal 4th gear). Another tap to the left (-)
will shift the transmission down to ERS 4 (direct
gear).
WARNING!
Do not downshift for additional engine braking
on a slippery surface. The drive wheels could
lose their grip and the vehicle could skid.

conditions are present:
• the shift lever is in DRIVE;
• the engine coolant has reached normal operating temperature;
• vehicle speed is above approximately
30 mph (48 km/h);
• the TOW/HAUL switch has not been activated;
* Applies to vehicles equipped with 5.7L
engine only.
• transmission has reached normal operating
temperature.
NOTE:
To select the proper gear position for maximum deceleration (engine braking), move
the shift lever to the left “D(-)” and hold it
there. The transmission will shift to the
range from which the vehicle can best be
slowed down.
NOTE:
• If the vehicle is started in extremely cold
temperatures, the transmission may not
shift into Overdrive and will automatically
select the most desirable gear for operation at this temperature. Normal operation
will resume when the transmission fluid
temperature has risen to a suitable level.
Refer to the “Note” under “Torque Converter Clutch” later in this section.
Overdrive Operation
The automatic transmission includes an electronically controlled Overdrive (5th gear for
3.7L and 3.0L diesel engine, 4th and 5th gears
• During cold temperature operation you
may notice delayed upshifts, depending
on engine and transmission temperature.
This feature improves the warmup time of
the engine and transmission.
• If the transmission temperature gets extremely hot, the transmission will automatically select the most desirable gear
for operation at this temperature. If the
transmission temperature becomes hot
enough, the “TRANSMISSION OVER
TEMP” message may display, and the
transmission may downshift out of Overdrive until the transmission cools down.
After cool down, the transmission will
resume normal operation.
In high ambient temperatures with sustained
high engine speed and load, an upshift, followed shortly thereafter by a downshift, may
occur. The “TOW/HAUL” indicator light will turn
off. This is a normal part of the overheat protection strategy when operating in the TOW/
HAUL mode.
The transmission will downshift from Overdrive,
to the most desirable gear, if the accelerator
147
pedal is fully pressed at vehicle speeds above
approximately 35 mph (56 km/h).
When to Use TOW/HAUL Mode — If
Equipped
When driving in hilly areas, towing a trailer,
carrying a heavy load, etc., and frequent transmission shifting occurs, press the TOW/HAUL
switch. This will improve performance and reduce the potential for transmission overheating
or failure due to excessive shifting. When operating in TOW/HAUL mode, the transmission will
shift into direct gear and Overdrive will be
enabled under steady cruise conditions.
The “TOW/HAUL” indicator light will illuminate
in the instrument cluster to indicate when the
switch has been activated. Pressing the switch
a second time restores normal operation. If the
TOW/HAUL mode is desired, the switch must
be pressed each time the engine is started.
Transmission Limp Home Mode
Transmission function is monitored for abnormal conditions. If a condition is detected that
could result in transmission damage, the Transmission Limp Home Mode will be engaged. In
this mode, the transmission will remain in the
current gear (3.7L and 3.0L diesel engine) or in
direct gear (5.7L engine) until the vehicle is
brought to a stop.
To reset the transmission, use the following
procedure:
1. Stop the vehicle.
2. Move the shift lever into the PARK position.
3. Turn the engine off, and be sure to turn the
ignition switch to the LOCK position.
TOW/HAUL Switch
148
4. Wait approximately 10 seconds, then restart
the engine.
5. Move the shift lever to the desired gear
range.
If the problem is no longer detected, the transmission will return to normal operation. If the
problem persists, PARK, REVERSE, and NEUTRAL will continue to operate. Only 2nd gear
(3.7L and 3.0L diesel engine) or 3rd gear (5.7L
engine) will be available in the DRIVE position.
Have the transmission checked at your authorized dealer as soon as possible.
Torque Converter Clutch
A feature, designed to improve fuel economy,
has been included in the automatic transmission on your vehicle. A clutch within the torque
converter engages automatically, at a calibrated speed, at light throttle. It engages at
higher speeds under heavier acceleration. This
may result in a slightly different feeling or
response during normal operation in high gear.
When the vehicle speed drops below a calibrated speed, or during acceleration, the
clutch automatically and smoothly disengages.
The feature is operational in Overdrive and in
DRIVE.
NOTE:
• The torque converter clutch will not engage until the transmission fluid and engine coolant are warm [usually after 1 to
3 miles (1.6 to 4.8 km) of driving]. Because
the engine speed is higher when the
torque converter clutch is not engaged, it
may seem as if the transmission is not
shifting into Overdrive when cold. This is
normal. Manually shifting (using the ERS
shift control) between 4 (direct gear) and
5/D (Overdrive gear) positions will demonstrate that the transmission is able to
shift into and out of Overdrive. For vehicles with 5.7L engine (which have two
Overdrive gears), the transmission may
not shift into the top Overdrive gear (normal 5th gear) until the transmission fluid
and engine coolant are warm.
• If the vehicle has not been driven in several days, the first few seconds of operation after shifting the transmission into
gear may seem sluggish. This is due to
the fluid partially draining from the torque
converter into the transmission. This condition is normal and will not cause dam-
age to the transmission. The torque converter will refill within five seconds of
shifting from PARK into any other gear
position.
Rocking the Vehicle
If the vehicle becomes stuck in snow, sand, or
mud, it can often be moved by a rocking
motion. Move the shift lever between DRIVE
and REVERSE, while applying slight pressure
to the accelerator.
overheating and reduce the risk of transmission
failure during prolonged efforts to free a stuck
vehicle.
CAUTION!
When “rocking” a stuck vehicle by moving
between “First” and REVERSE, do not spin
the wheels faster than 15 mph (24 km/h) or
drivetrain damage may result.
NOTE:
The Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and
Traction Control System (TCS) (if equipped)
should be turned OFF before attempting to
rock the vehicle. Refer to “Electronic Brake
Control System” in Section 3 of this manual.
FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE OPERATION
The least amount of accelerator pedal pressure
to maintain the rocking motion, without spinning
the wheels or racing the engine, is most effective. Racing the engine or spinning the wheels,
due to the frustration of not freeing the vehicle,
may lead to transmission overheating and failure. Allow the engine to idle with the shift lever
in NEUTRAL for at least one minute after every
five rocking-motion cycles. This will minimize
• 4WD HI
Quadra-Trac II姞 Operating
Instructions/Precautions — If
Equipped
The Quadra-Trac II姞 transfer case provides
three mode positions:
• NEUTRAL (N)
• 4WD LOW
The Quadra-Trac II姞 transfer case is fully automatic in the normal driving 4WD HI mode.
149
When additional traction is required, the 4WD
LOW position can be used to lock the front and
rear driveshafts together and force the front
and rear wheels to rotate at the same speed.
The 4WD LOW position is intended for loose,
slippery road surfaces only. Driving in the 4WD
LOW position on dry hard surfaced roads may
cause increased tire wear and damage to
driveline components.
When operating your vehicle in 4WD LOW, the
engine speed is approximately three times that
of the 4WD HI position at a given road speed.
Take care not to overspeed the engine and do
not exceed 25 mph (40 km/h).
Proper operation of four-wheel drive vehicles
depends on tires of equal size, type, and
circumference on each wheel. Any difference
will adversely affect shifting and cause damage
to the transfer case.
Because four-wheel drive provides improved
traction, there is a tendency to exceed safe
turning and stopping speeds. Do not go faster
than road conditions permit.
150
WARNING!
You or others could be injured if you leave the
vehicle unattended with the transfer case in
the N (Neutral) position without first fully engaging the parking brake. The transfer case N
(Neutral) position disengages both the front
and rear driveshafts from the powertrain and
will allow the vehicle to move regardless of the
transmission position. The parking brake
should always be applied when the driver is
not in the vehicle.
Shift Positions
For additional information on the appropriate
use of each transfer case mode position, see
the information below:
4WD HI
All roads surfaces such as ice, snow, gravel,
sand, and dry hard pavement.
NEUTRAL (N)
Disengages both the front and rear driveshafts
from the powertrain. To be used for flat towing
behind another vehicle. Refer to “Recreational
Towing” in Section 5 of this manual.
4WD LOW
Low speed four-wheel drive. Locks the front
and rear driveshafts together. Forces the front
and rear wheels to rotate at the same speed.
Additional traction and maximum pulling power
for loose, slippery road surfaces only. Do not
exceed 25 mph (40 km/h).
Shifting Procedures
4WD HI to 4WD LOW
With the vehicle at speeds of 0 to 3 mph (0 to
5 km/h), the ignition switch in the ON position or
engine running, shift the transmission into NEUTRAL, and raise the transfer case T-handle. The
“4WD LOW” indicator light in the instrument
cluster, will begin to flash and remain on solid
when the shift is complete. Release the
T-handle.
NOTE:
If shift conditions/interlocks are not met, or
a transfer case motor temperature protection condition exists, a “CHECK SHIFT PROCEDURES” message will flash from the
EVIC (Electronic Vehicle Information Center). Refer to “Electronic Vehicle Information
Center (EVIC)” in Section 4 of this manual.
Shifter T-Handle
4WD LOW to 4WD HI
With the vehicle at speeds of 0 to 3 mph (0 to
5 km/h), the ignition switch in the ON position or
engine running, shift the transmission into NEUTRAL, and raise the transfer case T-handle. The
“4WD LOW” indicator light in the instrument
cluster, will flash and go out when the shift is
complete. Release the T-handle.
NOTE:
• If shift conditions/interlocks are not met,
or a transfer case motor temperature protection condition exists, a “CHECK SHIFT
PROCEDURES” message will flash from
the EVIC (Electronic Vehicle Information
Center). Refer to “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)” in Section 4 of this
manual.
• Shifting into or out of 4WD LOW is possible with the vehicle completely stopped,
however difficulty may occur due to the
mating clutch teeth not being properly
aligned. Several attempts may be required for clutch teeth alignment and shift
completion to occur. The preferred
method is with the vehicle rolling 0 to
3 mph (0 to 5 km/h). If the vehicle is
moving faster than 3 mph (5 km/h), the
transfer case will not allow the shift.
3. Place transmission into NEUTRAL.
4. Hold down the NEUTRAL (N) “pin” switch
(with a pen, etc.) for four seconds until the LED
lamp by the switch starts to blink indicating
shift in progress. The lamp will stop blinking
(stay on solid) when the NEUTRAL (N) shift is
complete. A “4WD SYSTEM IN NEUTRAL”
message will display on the EVIC (Electronic
Vehicle Information Center). Refer to “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)” in
Section 4 of this manual.
NEUTRAL (N) Shift Procedure
1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position,
engine off.
2. Vehicle stopped, with foot on brake.

Quadra-Drive姞 II System — If
Equipped
The optional Quadra-Drive姞 II System features
three torque transfer couplings. The couplings
include ELSD (Electronic Limited-Slip Differential) front and rear axles and Quadra-Trac II姞
transfer case. The optional ELSD axles are fully
automatic and require no driver input to operate. Under normal driving conditions, the units
function as standard axles, balancing torque
evenly between left and right wheels. With a
traction difference between left and right
wheels, the coupling will sense a speed difference. As one wheel begins to spin faster than
the other, torque will automatically transfer from
the wheel that has less traction, to the wheel
that has traction. While the transfer case and
axle couplings differ in design, their operation
is similar. Follow the Quadra-Trac II姞 transfer

case shifting information, preceding this section, for shifting this system.
ON-ROAD DRIVING TIPS
Utility vehicles have higher ground clearance
and a narrower track to make them capable of
performing in a wide variety of off-road applications. Specific design characteristics give
them a higher center of gravity than ordinary
cars.
An advantage of the higher ground clearance
is a better view of the road, allowing you to
anticipate problems. They are not designed for
cornering at the same speeds as conventional
two-wheel drive vehicles any more than lowslung sports cars are designed to perform
satisfactorily in off-road conditions. If at all
possible, avoid sharp turns or abrupt maneuvers. As with other vehicles of this type, failure
to operate this vehicle correctly may result in
loss of control or vehicle rollover.
OFF-ROAD DRIVING TIPS
NOTE:
Prior to off-road driving, remove the front air
dam to prevent damage. The front air dam is
attached to the lower front fascia with quarter turn fasteners and can be removed by
hand.
When to Use 4WD LOW Range — If
Equipped
When off-road driving, shift to 4WD LOW for
additional traction. This range should be limited
to extreme situations such as deep snow, mud,
or sand where additional low speed pulling
power is needed. Vehicle speeds in excess of
25 mph (40 km/h) should be avoided when in
4WD LOW range.
Driving Through Water
Although your vehicle is capable of driving
through water, there are a number of precautions that must be considered before entering
the water.
CAUTION!
When driving through water, do not exceed
5 mph (8 km/h). Always check water depth
before entering, as a precaution, and check all
fluids afterward. Driving through water may
cause damage that may not be covered by the
new vehicle limited warranty.
Driving through water more than a few inches/
centimeters deep will require extra caution to
ensure safety and prevent damage to your
vehicle. If you must drive through water, try to
determine the depth and the bottom condition
(and location of any obstacles) prior to entering. Proceed with caution and maintain a
steady controlled speed less than 5 mph
(8 km/h) in deep water to minimize wave effects.
Flowing Water
If the water is swift flowing and rising (as in
storm run-off), avoid crossing until the water
level recedes and/or the flow rate is reduced. If
you must cross flowing water avoid depths in
excess of 9 in (23 cm). The flowing water can
erode the streambed, causing your vehicle to
sink into deeper water. Determine exit point(s)
that are downstream of your entry point to allow
for drifting.
forward motion. Over-revving the engine can
spin the wheels and traction will be lost.
Avoid abrupt downshifts on icy or slippery
roads, because engine braking may cause
skidding and loss of control.
Standing Water
Avoid driving in standing water deeper than
20 in (51 cm), and reduce speed appropriately
to minimize wave effects. Maximum speed in
20 in (51 cm) of water is less than 5 mph
(8 km/h).
Hill Climbing
Maintenance
After driving through deep water, inspect your
vehicle fluids and lubricants (engine oil, transmission oil, axle, transfer case) to assure the
fluids have not been contaminated. Contaminated fluid (milky, foamy in appearance) should
be flushed/changed as soon as possible to
prevent component damage.
Before climbing a steep hill, shift the transmission to a lower gear and shift the transfer
case to 4WD LOW. Use first gear and 4WD
LOW for very steep hills.
Driving in Snow, Mud and Sand
In heavy snow, when pulling a load, or for
additional control at slower speeds, shift the
transmission to a low gear and shift the transfer
case to 4WD LOW if necessary. Refer to “FourWheel Drive Operation” in this section. Do not
shift to a lower gear than necessary to maintain
NOTE:
Before attempting to climb a hill, determine
the conditions at the crest and/or on the
other side.
If you stall or begin to lose forward motion
while climbing a steep hill, allow your vehicle to
come to a stop and immediately apply the
brakes. Restart the engine, and shift into REVERSE. Back slowly down the hill, allowing the
compression braking of the engine to help
regulate your speed. If the brakes are required
to control vehicle speed, apply them lightly and
avoid locking or skidding the tires.
153
WARNING!
If the engine stalls, you lose forward motion,
or cannot make it to the top of a steep hill or
grade, never attempt to turn around. To do so
may result in tipping and rolling the vehicle.
Always back carefully straight down a hill in
REVERSE gear. Never back down a hill in
NEUTRAL using only the brake.
Remember, never drive diagonally across a
hill always drive straight up or down.
If the wheels start to slip as you approach the
crest of a hill, ease off the accelerator and
maintain forward motion by turning the front
wheels slowly. This may provide a fresh “bite”
into the surface and will usually provide traction
to complete the climb.
Traction Downhill
Shift the transmission into a low gear, and the
transfer case into 4WD LOW range. Let the
vehicle go slowly down the hill with all four
wheels turning against engine compression
drag. This will permit you to control the vehicle
speed and direction.
154
When descending mountains or hills, repeated
braking can cause brake fade with loss of
braking control. Avoid repeated heavy braking
by downshifting the transmission whenever
possible.
After Driving Off-Road
Off-road operation puts more stress on your
vehicle than does most on-road driving. After
going off-road, it is always a good idea to
check for damage. That way you can get any
problems taken care of right away and have
your vehicle ready when you need it.
• Completely inspect the underbody of your
vehicle. Check the tires, body structure,
steering, suspension, and exhaust system
for damage.
• Check threaded fasteners for looseness,
particularly on the chassis, drivetrain components, steering, and suspension. Retighten them, if required, and torque to the
values specified in the Service Manual.
• Check for accumulations of plants or brush.
These things could be a fire hazard. They
might hide damage to fuel lines, brake
hoses, axle pinion seals, and propeller
shafts.
• After extended operation in mud, sand, water, or similar dirty conditions, have brake
rotors, wheels, brake linings, and axle yokes
inspected and cleaned as soon as possible.
WARNING!
Abrasive material in any part of the brakes
may cause excessive wear or unpredictable
braking. You might not have full braking power
when you need it to prevent an accident. If
you have been operating your vehicle in dirty
conditions, get your brakes checked and
cleaned as necessary.
• If you experience unusual vibration after
driving in mud, slush or similar conditions,
check the wheels for impacted material. Impacted material can cause a wheel imbalance and freeing the wheels of it will correct
the situation.
POWER STEERING
The standard power steering system will give
you good vehicle response and increased ease
of maneuverability in tight spaces. The system
will provide mechanical steering capability if
power assist is lost.
If for some reason the power assist is interrupted, it will still be possible to steer your
vehicle. Under these conditions, you will observe a substantial increase in steering effort,
especially at very low vehicle speeds and
during parking maneuvers.
NOTE:
Increased noise levels at the end of the
steering wheel travel are considered normal
and do not indicate that there is a problem
with the power steering system.
Upon initial start-up in cold weather, the
power steering pump may make noise for a
short amount of time. This is due to the cold,
thick fluid in the steering system. This noise
should be considered normal, and it does
not in any way damage the steering system.
WARNING!
Continued operation with reduced power
steering assist could pose a safety risk to
yourself and others. Service should be obtained as soon as possible.
CAUTION!
Prolonged operation of the steering system at
the end of the steering wheel travel will increase the steering fluid temperature and it
should be avoided when possible. Damage to
the power steering pump may occur.
Power Steering Fluid Check
The power steering system requires the use of
MOPAR姞 Hydraulic System Power Steering
Fluid or equivalent, which meets Chrysler Material Standard MS-10838.
CAUTION!
Do not use chemical flushes in your power
steering system as the chemicals can damage your power steering components. Such
damage is not covered by the New Vehicle
Limited Warranty.
WARNING!
Do not use Automatic Transmission Fluid
(ATF), or other types of power steering fluids,
when servicing the power steering system of
this vehicle. Damage to the power steering
system can result from the use of the wrong
power steering fluid.
Checking the power steering fluid level at a
defined service interval is not required. The
fluid should only be checked if a leak is suspected, abnormal noises are apparent, and/or
the system is not functioning as anticipated.
Coordinate inspection efforts through an authorized dealer.
155
WARNING!
Fluid level should be checked on a level
surface and with the engine off to prevent
injury from moving parts and to ensure accurate fluid level reading. Do not overfill. Use
only manufacturers recommended power
steering fluid.
If necessary, add fluid to restore to the proper
indicated level. With a clean cloth, wipe any
spilled fluid from all surfaces.
PARKING BRAKE
Before leaving the vehicle, make sure that the
parking brake is fully applied and place the
shift lever in the PARK position.
The parking brake lever is located in the center
console. To apply the parking brake, pull the
lever up as firmly as possible. To release the
parking brake, pull the lever up slightly, press
the center button, then lower the lever completely.
MULTI-DISPLACEMENT SYSTEM
(MDS) (IF EQUIPPED) – 5.7L ENGINE
ONLY
This feature offers improved fuel economy by
shutting off four of the engine’s eight cylinders
during light load and cruise conditions. The
system is automatic with no driver inputs or
additional driving skills required.
NOTE:
The MDS system may take some time to
return to full functionality after a battery
disconnect.
156
Parking Brake
When the parking brake is applied with the
ignition switch in the ON position, the “Brake
Warning Light” in the instrument cluster will
illuminate.
NOTE:
• When the parking brake is applied vehicle
speed is detected, the light will flash and
a chime will sound to alert the driver. Fully
release the parking brake before attempting to move the vehicle.
• This light only shows that the parking
brake is applied. It does not show the
degree of brake application.
When parking on a hill, it is important to turn the
front wheels toward the curb on a downhill
grade and away from the curb on an uphill
grade. For vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission, apply the parking brake
before placing the shift lever in PARK, otherwise the load on the transmission locking
mechanism may make it difficult to move the
shift lever out of PARK. The parking brake
should always be applied whenever the driver
is not in the vehicle.
WARNING!
• Never use the PARK position as a substitute for the parking brake. Always apply the
parking brake fully when parked to guard
against vehicle movement and possible
injury or damage.
• Never leave children alone in a vehicle.
Leaving unattended children in a vehicle is
dangerous for a number of reasons. A child
or others could be seriously or fatally injured.
• Do not leave the key fob in the ignition
switch. A child could operate power windows, other controls, or move the vehicle.
• Be sure the parking brake is fully disengaged before driving; failure to do so can
lead to brake failure and an accident.
• Always fully apply the parking brake when
leaving your vehicle, or it may roll and
cause damage or injury. Also be certain to
leave the transmission in PARK. Failure to
do so may allow the vehicle to roll and
cause damage or injury.
CAUTION!
If the “Brake Warning Light” remains on with
the parking brake released, a brake system
malfunction is indicated. Have the brake system serviced by an authorized dealer immediately.
ANTI-LOCK BRAKE SYSTEM
The Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) is designed
to aid the driver in maintaining vehicle control
under adverse braking conditions. The system
operates with a separate computer to modulate
hydraulic pressure, to prevent wheel lock-up
and help avoid skidding on slippery surfaces.
All vehicle wheels and tires must be the same
size and type, and tires must be properly
inflated, to produce accurate signals for the
computer.
The ABS conducts a low-speed self-test at
about 12 mph (20 km/h). If you have your foot
lightly on the brake while this test is occurring,
you may feel slight pedal movement. The
movement can be more apparent on ice and
snow. This is normal.
The ABS pump motor runs during the self-test
at 12 mph (20 km/h) and during an ABS stop.
The pump motor makes a low humming noise
during operation, which is normal.
WARNING!
• Pumping of the Anti-Lock Brakes will diminish their effectiveness and may lead to an
accident. Pumping makes the stopping distance longer. Just press firmly on your
brake pedal when you need to slow down
or stop.
(Continued)
WARNING!
Significant over or under-inflation of tires or
mixing sizes of tires or wheels on the vehicle
can lead to loss of braking effectiveness.
157
WARNING! (Continued)
• The ABS cannot prevent the natural laws of
physics from acting on the vehicle, nor can
it increase braking or steering efficiency
beyond that afforded by the condition of the
vehicle brakes and tires or the traction
afforded.
• The ABS cannot prevent accidents, including those resulting from excessive speed in
turns, following another vehicle too closely,
or hydroplaning. Only a safe, attentive, and
skillful driver can prevent accidents.
• The capabilities of an ABS equipped vehicle must never be exploited in a reckless
or dangerous manner, which could jeopardize the user’s safety or the safety of
others.
CAUTION!
The ABS is subject to possible detrimental
effects of electronic interference caused by
improperly installed aftermarket radios or telephones.
158
NOTE:
During severe braking conditions, a pulsing
sensation may occur and a clicking noise
will be heard. This is normal, indicating that
the ABS is functioning.
• Do not “ride” the brakes by resting your foot
on the pedal. This could overheat the brakes
and result in unpredictable braking action,
longer stopping distances, or brake damage.
• When descending mountains or hills, repeated braking can cause brake fade with
loss of braking control. Avoid repeated
heavy braking by downshifting the transmission or locking out overdrive whenever possible.
• Engines may idle at higher speeds during
warm-up, which could cause rear wheels to
spin and result in loss of vehicle control. Be
especially careful while driving on slippery
roads, in close-quarter maneuvering, parking, or stopping.
• Do not drive too fast for road conditions,
especially when roads are wet or slushy. A
wedge of water can build up between the tire
tread and the road. This hydroplaning action
can cause loss of traction, braking ability,
and control.
• After going through deep water or a car
wash, brakes may become wet, resulting in
decreased performance and unpredictable
braking action. Dry the brakes by gentle,
intermittent pedal action while driving at very
slow speeds.
ELECTRONIC BRAKE CONTROL
SYSTEM
Your vehicle is equipped with an advanced
electronic brake control system that includes
the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS), Traction
Control System (TCS), Brake Assist System
(BAS), Electronic Roll Mitigation (ERM), and
Electronic Stability Program (ESP). All five of
these systems work together to enhance vehicle stability and control in various driving
conditions.
Also, your vehicle is equipped with TSC (Trailer
Sway Control) and, if it has 4WD with the NV245
two-speed transfer case, HSA (Hill Start Assist)
and HDC (Hill Descent Control).
Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)
Traction Control System (TCS)
This system aids the driver in maintaining vehicle control under adverse braking conditions.
The system controls hydraulic brake pressure
to prevent wheel lock-up and help avoid skidding on slippery surfaces during braking. Refer
to “Anti-Lock Brake System” in Section 5 of this
manual for more information about ABS.
This system monitors the amount of wheel spin
of each of the driven wheels. If wheel spin is
detected, brake pressure is applied to the
slipping wheel(s) and engine power is reduced
to provide enhanced acceleration and stability.
A feature of the TCS system functions similar to
a limited-slip differential and controls the wheel
spin across a driven axle. If one wheel on a
driven axle is spinning faster than the other, the
system will apply the brake of the spinning
wheel. This will allow more engine torque to be
applied to the wheel that is not spinning. This
feature remains active even if TCS and ESP are
in either the “Partial Off” or “Full Off” modes.
Refer to “ESP (Electronic Stability Program)” in
this section for more information.
WARNING!
The ABS cannot prevent the natural laws of
physics from acting on the vehicle, nor can it
increase the traction afforded by prevailing
road conditions. The ABS cannot prevent accidents, including those resulting from excessive speed in turns, driving on very slippery
surfaces, or hydroplaning. Only a safe, attentive, and skillful driver can prevent accidents.
The capabilities of an ABS-equipped vehicle
must never be exploited in a reckless or
dangerous manner which could jeopardize
the user’s safety or the safety of others.
Brake Assist System (BAS)
The BAS is designed to optimize the vehicle’s
braking capability during emergency braking
maneuvers. The system detects an emergency
braking situation by sensing the rate and
amount of brake application and then applies
optimum pressure to the brakes. This can help
reduce braking distances. The BAS comple-
ments the anti-lock brake system (ABS). Applying the brakes very quickly results in the best
BAS assistance. To receive the benefit of the
system, you must apply continuous braking
pressure during the stopping sequence (do not
“pump” the brakes). Do not reduce brake pedal
pressure unless braking is no longer desired.
Once the brake pedal is released, the BAS is
deactivated.
WARNING!
The BAS cannot prevent the natural laws of
physics from acting on the vehicle, nor can it
increase the traction afforded by prevailing
road conditions. The BAS cannot prevent
accidents, including those resulting from excessive speed in turns, driving on very slippery surfaces, or hydroplaning. Only a safe,
attentive, and skillful driver can prevent accidents. The capabilities of a BAS-equipped
vehicle must never be exploited in a reckless
or dangerous manner which could jeopardize
the user’s safety or the safety of others.
159
Electronic Roll Mitigation (ERM)
This system anticipates the potential for wheel
lift by monitoring the driver’s steering wheel
input and the speed of the vehicle. When ERM
determines that the rate of change of the steering wheel angle and vehicle speed are sufficient to potentially cause wheel lift, it then
applies the brake of the appropriate wheel and
may also reduce engine power to lessen the
chance that wheel lift will occur. ERM will only
intervene during very severe or evasive driving
maneuvers.
ERM can only reduce the chance of wheel lift
occurring during severe or evasive driving maneuvers. It cannot prevent wheel lift due to
other factors such as road conditions, leaving
the roadway or striking objects or other vehicles.
NOTE:
Anytime the ESP system is in the “Full Off”
mode, ERM is disabled. Refer to ESP (Electronic Stability Program) for a complete explanation of the available ESP modes.
160
WARNING!
Many factors, such as vehicle loading, road
conditions and driving conditions, influence
the chance that wheel lift or rollover may
occur. ERM cannot prevent all wheel lift or
rollovers, especially those that involve leaving
the roadway or striking objects or other vehicles. Only a safe, attentive, and skillful driver
can prevent accidents. The capabilities of an
ERM-equipped vehicle must never be exploited in a reckless or dangerous manner
which could jeopardize the user’s safety or the
safety of others.
Electronic Stability Program (ESP)
This system enhances directional control and
stability of the vehicle under various driving
conditions. ESP corrects for oversteering or
understeering of the vehicle by applying the
brake of the appropriate wheel to assist in
counteracting the oversteer or understeer condition. Engine power may also be reduced to
help the vehicle maintain the desired path.
ESP uses sensors in the vehicle to determine
the vehicle path intended by the driver and
compares it to the actual path of the vehicle.
When the actual path does not match the
intended path, ESP applies the brake of the
appropriate wheel to assist in counteracting the
oversteer or understeer condition.
• Oversteer - when the vehicle is turning more
than appropriate for the steering wheel position.
• Understeer - when the vehicle is turning less
than appropriate for the steering wheel position.
The ESP/TCS Indicator Light, located in the
instrument cluster starts to flash as soon as the
tires lose traction and the ESP system becomes
active. The ESP/TCS Indicator Light also
flashes when the TCS is active. If the ESP/TCS
Indicator Light begins to flash during acceleration, ease up on the accelerator and apply as
little throttle as possible. Be sure to adapt your
speed and driving to the prevailing road conditions.
WARNING!
ESP (Electronic Stability Program) cannot
prevent the natural laws of physics from acting on the vehicle, nor can it increase the
traction afforded by prevailing road conditions. ESP cannot prevent accidents, including those resulting from excessive speed in
turns, driving on very slippery surfaces, or
hydroplaning. Only a safe, attentive, and skillful driver can prevent accidents. The capabilities of an ESP-equipped vehicle must never
be exploited in a reckless or dangerous manner which could jeopardize the user’s safety
or the safety of others.
The ESP system has three available operating
modes in 4WD HIGH range, and one operating
mode in 4WD LOW range.
High Range (4WD Models)
On
This is the normal operating mode for ESP in
4WD HIGH range. Whenever the vehicle is
started or the transfer case (if equipped) is
shifted from 4WD LOW range or NEUTRAL
back to 4WD HIGH range, the ESP system will
be in this “On” mode. This mode should be
used for most driving situations. ESP should
only be turned to “Partial Off” or “Full Off” mode
for specific reasons as noted below.
Partial Off
This mode is entered by momentarily pressing
the ESP OFF switch. When in “Partial Off”
mode, the TCS portion of ESP, except for the
“limited slip” feature described in the TCS
section, has been disabled and the ESP/TCS
Indicator Light will be illuminated. All other
stability features of ESP function normally. This
mode is intended to be used if the vehicle is in
deep snow, sand, or gravel conditions and
more wheel spin than ESP would normally allow
is required to gain traction. To turn ESP on
again, momentarily press the ESP OFF switch.
This will restore the normal “ESP On” mode of
operation.
ESP OFF Switch
NOTE:
To improve the vehicle’s traction when driving with snow chains, or starting off in deep
snow, sand, or gravel, it may be desirable to
switch to the “Partial Off” mode by pressing
the ESP OFF switch. Once the situation
requiring ESP to be switched to the “Partial
Off” mode is overcome, turn ESP back on by
momentarily pressing the ESP OFF switch.
This may be done while the vehicle is in
motion.
161
Full Off (4WD Models Only)
This mode is intended for off-highway or offroad use when ESP stability features could
inhibit vehicle maneuverability due to trail conditions. This mode is entered by pressing and
holding the ESP OFF switch for five seconds
when the vehicle is stopped and the engine is
running. After five seconds, the ESP/TCS Indicator Light will illuminate, and the “ESP OFF”
message will appear in the Electronic Vehicle
Information Center (EVIC). Refer to “Electronic
Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)” in Section 4
of this manual for more information.
In this mode, ESP and TCS, except for the
“limited slip” feature described in the TCS
section, are turned off until the vehicle reaches
a speed of 40 mph (64 km/h). At 40 mph
(64 km/h), the system returns to “Partial Off”
mode, described above. When the vehicle
speed drops below 35 mph (56 km/h), the ESP
system shuts off. ESP is deactivated at low
vehicle speeds so that it will not interfere with
off-road driving, but ESP function returns to
provide the stability feature at speeds above
40 mph (64 km/h). The ESP/TCS Indicator Light
will always be illuminated when ESP is off. To
162
turn ESP on again, momentarily press the ESP
OFF switch. This will restore the normal “ESP
On” mode of operation.
NOTE:
The “ESP OFF” message will display, and
the audible chime will sound, when the shift
lever is placed in the PARK position from
any other position, and then moved out of
the PARK position. This will occur even if
the message was previously cleared.
WARNING!
With the ESP switched off, the enhanced
vehicle stability offered by ESP and ERM are
unavailable. In an emergency evasive maneuver, the ESP and ERM systems will not engage to assist in maintaining stability. The
“Full Off” ESP mode is intended for off-road
use only.
4WD Low Range
Full Off
This is the normal operating mode for ESP in
4WD LOW range. Whenever the vehicle is
started in 4WD LOW range, or the transfer case
(if equipped) is shifted from 4WD HIGH range
or NEUTRAL to 4WD LOW range, the ESP
system will be in this “Full Off” mode. In 4WD
LOW range, ESP and TCS, except for the
“limited slip” feature described in the TCS
section, are turned off until the vehicle reaches
a speed of 40 mph (64 km/h). At 40 mph
(64 km/h), the normal ESP stability function
returns, but TCS remains off. When the vehicle
speed drops below 35 mph (56 km/h), the ESP
system shuts off. ESP is deactivated at low
vehicle speeds in 4WD LOW range so that it will
not interfere with off-road driving, but ESP function returns to provide the stability feature at
speeds above 40 mph (64 km/h). The ESP/TCS
Indicator Light will always be illuminated in
4WD LOW range when ESP is off.
NOTE:
The “ESP OFF” message will display, and
the audible chime will sound, when the shift
lever is placed in the PARK position from
any other position, and then moved out of
the PARK position. This will occur even if
the message was previously cleared
WARNING!
With the ESP switched off, the enhanced
vehicle stability offered by ESP and ERM are
unavailable. In an emergency evasive maneuver, the ESP and ERM systems will not engage to assist in maintaining stability. The
“Full Off” mode is intended for off-road use
only.
Trailer Sway Control (TSC)
TSC uses sensors in the vehicle to recognize
an excessively swaying trailer and will take the
appropriate actions to attempt to stop the sway.
The system may reduce engine power and
apply the brake of the appropriate wheel(s) to
counteract the sway of the trailer. TSC will
become active automatically once an exces-
sively swaying trailer is recognized. No driver
action is required. Note that TSC cannot stop all
trailers from swaying. Always use caution when
towing a trailer and follow the trailer tongue
weight recommendations. Refer to “Trailer Towing” in Section 5 of this manual for more information on towing a trailer with your vehicle.
When TSC is functioning, the ESP/TCS Indicator Light will flash, the engine power may be
reduced and you may feel the brakes being
applied to individual wheels to attempt to stop
the trailer from swaying. TSC is disabled when
the ESP system is in the “Partial Off” or “Full Off”
modes.
WARNING!
If TSC activates while driving, slow the vehicle
down, stop at the nearest safe location, and
adjust the trailer load to eliminate trailer sway.
Hill Start Assist (HSA) – 4WD
Models With NV245 Two–Speed
Transfer Case Only
The HSA system is designed to assist the driver
when starting a vehicle from a stop on a hill.
HSA will maintain the level of brake pressure
the driver applied for a short period of time after
the driver takes their foot off of the brake pedal.
If the driver does not apply the throttle during
this short period of time, the system will release
brake pressure and the vehicle will roll down
the hill. The system will release brake pressure
in proportion to the amount of throttle applied
as the vehicle starts to move in the intended
direction of travel.
HSA Activation Criteria
The following criteria must be met in order for
HSA to activate:
• Vehicle must be stopped.
• Vehicle must be on a 8% grade or greater
hill.
163
• Gear selection matches vehicle uphill direction (i.e., vehicle facing uphill is in forward
gear; vehicle backing uphill is in REVERSE
gear).
HSA will work in REVERSE and all forward
gears when the activation criteria have been
met. The system will not activate if the vehicle is
placed in NEUTRAL or PARK.
WARNING!
There may be situations on minor hills (i.e.,
less than 8%), with a loaded vehicle, or while
pulling a trailer, when the system will not
activate and slight rolling may occur. This
could cause a collision with another vehicle or
object. Always remember the driver is responsible for braking the vehicle.
Towing with HSA
HSA will provide assistance when starting on a
grade when pulling a trailer.
164
WARNING!
• If you use a trailer brake controller with your
trailer, your trailer brakes may be activated
and deactivated with the brake switch. If so,
when the brake pedal is released, there
may not be enough brake pressure to hold
the vehicle and trailer on a hill and this
could cause a collision with another vehicle
or object behind you. In order to avoid
rolling down the hill while resuming acceleration, manually activate the trailer brake
prior to releasing the brake pedal. Always
remember the driver is responsible for
braking the vehicle.
• HSA is not a parking brake. If you stop the
vehicle on a hill without putting the transmission in PARK and using the parking
brake, it will roll down the hill and could
cause a collision with another vehicle or
object. Always remember to use the parking brake while parking on a hill, and that
the driver is responsible for braking the
vehicle.
HSA Off
If you wish to turn off the HSA system, it can be
done using the Customer Programmable Features in the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC). Refer to “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)” in Section 4 of this manual.
Hill Descent Control (HDC) – 4WD
Models With NV245 Two–Speed
Transfer Case Only
HDC maintains vehicle speed while descending hills during off-road driving situations and is
available in 4WD LOW range only. To enable
HDC (transfer case must be in 4WD LOW
range), press the HDC switch. If the HDC
switch is pressed when the vehicle is not in
4WD LOW range, the light in the switch will
flash for five seconds and HDC will not be
enabled.
• 3rd = 4 mph (6 km/h)
• 4th = 5.5 mph (9 km/h)
• 5th = 7.5 mph (12 km/h)
• REVERSE = 1 mph (1.6 km/h)
• NEUTRAL = 2.5 mph (4 km/h)
• PARK — HDC will not function
Hill Descent Switch
When HDC is properly enabled, the message
“HILL DESCENT CONTROL” will appear in the
EVIC and the light in the switch will be illuminated. HDC will automatically apply the brakes
to control downhill speed when necessary.
HDC has the capability to sense terrain and will
only activate when the vehicle is descending a
hill. It will usually not activate on level ground.
The HDC speed may be adjusted by the driver
to suit the driving conditions. The speed corresponds to the transmission gear selected.
• 1st = 1 mph (1.6 km/h)
HDC also has the capability to sense rough
terrain, and will automatically adjust to a slightly
slower set speed [about 0.3 mph (0.5 km/h)
than normal].
HDC operation can be overridden with brake
application to slow the vehicle down below the
HDC control speed. Conversely, if more speed
is desired during HDC control, the accelerator
pedal will increase vehicle speed in the usual
manner. When either the brake or the accelerator is released, HDC will control the vehicle
back to the original set speed.
HDC is intended for low speed off-road driving only. At vehicle speeds above 30 mph
(48 km/h), HDC will no longer function. When
the vehicle speed drops below 30 mph
(48 km/h), HDC function will automatically resume and the vehicle speed will return to the
chosen set speed.
WARNING!
HDC is only intended to assist the driver in
controlling vehicle speed when descending
hills. The driver must remain attentive to the
driving conditions and is responsible for maintaining a safe vehicle speed.
ESP/BAS Warning Light and
ESP/TCS Indicator Light
The malfunction indicator light for
the ESP is combined with the BAS
indicator. The ESP/BAS Warning
Light and the ESP/TCS Indicator
Light in the instrument cluster both
come on when the ignition switch
is turned to the ON position. They should both
go out with the engine running.
• 2nd = 2.5 mph (4 km/h)
165
If the ESP/BAS Warning Light
comes on continuously with the
engine running, a malfunction has
been detected in either the ESP or
the BAS system, or both. If this
light remains on after several ignition switch cycles, and the vehicle has been
driven several miles at speeds greater than
30 mph (48 km/h), see your authorized dealer
as soon as possible to have the problem diagnosed and corrected.
NOTE:
• The ESP/TCS Indicator Light and the ESP/
BAS Warning Light come on momentarily
each time the ignition switch is turned to
the ON position.
• Each time the ignition switch is turned to
the ON position, the ESP System will be
ON even if it was previously turned off.
• The ESP Control System will make buzzing or clicking sounds when it is active.
This is normal; the sounds will stop when
the ESP becomes inactive following the
maneuver that caused the ESP activation.
TIRES — GENERAL INFORMATION
Tire Pressure
Proper tire inflation pressure is essential to the
safe and satisfactory operation of your vehicle.
Three primary areas are affected by improper
tire pressure:
Safety
WARNING!
• Improperly inflated tires are dangerous and
can cause accidents.
• Under-inflation increases tire flexing and
can result in tire failure.
• Over-inflation reduces a tire’s ability to
cushion shock. Objects on the road and
chuck holes can cause damage that results
in tire failure.
• Unequal tire pressures can cause steering
problems. You could lose control of your
vehicle.
• Over-inflated or under-inflated tires can affect vehicle handling and can fail suddenly,
resulting in loss of vehicle control.
(Continued)
166
WARNING! (Continued)
Always drive with each tire inflated to the
recommended pressure.
Economy
Improper inflation pressures can cause uneven
wear patterns to develop across the tire tread.
These abnormal wear patterns will reduce
tread life resulting in a need for earlier tire
replacement. Under-inflation also increases tire
rolling resistance and results in higher fuel
consumption.
Ride Comfort and Vehicle Stability
Proper tire inflation contributes to a comfortable
ride. Over-inflation produces a jarring and uncomfortable ride. Both under-inflation and overinflation affect the stability of the vehicle and
can produce a feeling of sluggish response or
over responsiveness in the steering.
Unequal tire pressures can cause erratic and
unpredictable steering response.
Unequal tire pressure from side to side may
cause the vehicle to drift left or right.
Tire Inflation Pressures
High Speed Operation
The proper cold tire inflation pressure for passenger cars is listed on either the face of the
driver’s door or the driver’s side “B” pillar. For
vehicles other than passenger cars, the cold
tire inflation pressures are listed on the driver’s
side “B” pillar, glove box door, or the Certification Label.
The manufacturer advocates driving at safe
speeds within posted speed limits. Where
speed limits or conditions are such that the
vehicle can be driven at high speeds, correct
tire inflation pressure is very important.
The tire pressure should be checked and adjusted at least once every month. Check more
often if subject to a wide range of outdoor
temperatures, as tire pressures vary with temperature changes.
WARNING!
Combining radial ply tires with other types of
tires on your vehicle will cause your vehicle to
handle poorly. The instability could cause an
accident. Always use radial tires in sets of
four. Never combine them with other types of
tires.
Inflation pressures specified on the chart are
always “Cold Inflation Pressure.” Cold inflation
pressure is defined as the tire pressure after the
vehicle has been idle for at least three hours, or
driven less than a mile (1.6 km) after a threehour period. The cold inflation pressure must
not exceed the maximum values molded into
the tire sidewall.
Tire pressures may increase from 2 to 6 psi
(0.14 to 0.41 bar) [14 to 41 kPa] during operation. DO NOT reduce this normal pressure
buildup.
Radial-Ply Tires
Cuts and punctures in radial tires are repairable
only in the tread area because of sidewall
flexing. Consult your dealer for radial tire repairs.
Tire Spinning
When stuck in mud, sand, snow, or ice conditions, do not spin your vehicle’s wheels above
30 mph (48 km/h).
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, and do not let anyone near
a spinning wheel, no matter what the speed.
Tire Chains
CAUTION!
To avoid damage to your vehicle or tires,
observe the following precautions:
• Because of restricted chain clearance between tires and other suspension components, it is important that only chains in
good condition are used. Broken chains
can cause serious damage. Stop the vehicle immediately if noise occurs that could
indicate chain breakage. Remove the damaged parts of the chain before further use.
(Continued)
167
CAUTION! (Continued)
• Install chains on rear tires only, observing
the tire chain manufacturer’s instructions
on the method of installation and conditions
for use.
• For vehicles outfitted with 17⬙ wheels, do
not install tire chains or traction devices on
tires larger than 235/65R17.
• For vehicles outfitted with 18⬙ wheels, do
not install tire chains or traction devices on
tires larger than 235/60R18. Tires larger
than this may not provide sufficient body
clearance with chains or other traction devices.
• Use SAE class S tire chains or traction
devices only.
• Install chains snugly and tighten after
1/2 mile (0.8 km) of driving.
(Continued)
168
CAUTION! (Continued)
• Do not exceed 30 mph (50 km/h), unless
otherwise specified by the chain manufacturer. (Always use the lower suggested
operating speed of the chain manufacturer
if different than the speed recommended by
the manufacturer.) .
• Drive cautiously, avoiding large bumps,
potholes and extreme driving maneuvers.
• Do not drive for prolonged periods on dry
pavement.
NOTE:
In order to avoid damage to tires, chains,
and your vehicle, do not drive for a prolonged period of time on dry pavement.
Observe the tire chain manufacturer’s instructions on method of installation, operating speed, and conditions for usage.
Always use the lower suggested operating
speed if both the chain manufacturer and vehicle manufacturer suggest a maximum speed.
This notice applies to all chain traction devices,
including link and cable (radial) chains.
Treadwear Indicators
These indicators are narrow strips 1/16 in
(1.6 mm) thick and are found in the tread
pattern grooves.
When the tread pattern is worn down to these
treadwear indicators, the tires should be replaced.
1 — Worn Tire
2 — New Tire
Overloading your vehicle, long trips in very hot
weather, and driving on bad roads may result in
greater wear.
Life of Tire
The service life of a tire is dependent upon
varying factors including but not limited to:
• Driving style
• Tire pressure
• Distance driven
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 an accident resulting in serious
injury or death.
Keep unmounted tires in a cool, dry place with
as little exposure to light as possible. Protect
tires from contact with oil, grease and gasoline.
Replacement Tires
The tires on your new vehicle provide a balance
of many characteristics. They should be inspected regularly for wear and correct inflation
pressure. The manufacturer strongly recommends that you use tires equivalent to the
originals in quality and performance when replacement is needed (see section on tread
wear indicators). Failure to use equivalent replacement tires may adversely affect the safety,
handling and ride of your vehicle. We recommend that you contact your local authorized
dealer on any questions you may have on tire
specifications or capability.
WARNING!
• Do not use a tire, wheel size or 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 stress to steering and suspension
components. You could lose control and
have an accident resulting in serious injury
or death. Use only the tire and wheel sizes
with load ratings approved for your vehicle.
WARNING! (Continued)
• Never use a tire smaller than the minimum
tire size listed on your vehicle’s tire placard
unless explicitly instructed to do so by the
vehicle manufacturer (reference tire chain
information in this manual). Using an
under-sized tire could result in tire overloading and failure.
• Failure to equip your vehicle with tires
having adequate speed capability can result in sudden tire failure and loss of vehicle
control.
• Overloading your tires is dangerous. Like
under-inflation, overloading can cause tire
failure. Use tires of the recommended load
capacity for your vehicle — never overload
them.
(Continued)
169
CAUTION!
Replacing original tires with tires of a different
size may result in false speedometer and
odometer readings. This can also affect vehicle performance and can do potential damage to the driveline. Check with your dealer
before replacing tires with a different size.
Directional Tread Pattern Tires - If
Equipped
Your vehicle may be equipped with tires using
a directional tread pattern. These tires are
designed to optimize dry handling as well as
wet performance. To obtain the full benefits of
this design, the tires must be installed so that
they rotate in the correct direction. The rotation
direction of this type of tire is indicated by
arrows on the side wall of the tire. The full size
spare tire is mounted as a direct replacement
for the right side of the vehicle. For a flat tire on
the left side of the vehicle, the full size spare
can be used as mounted. If this is required,
correct the rotation as soon as possible to
restore optimum wet performance.
170
TIRE ROTATION
RECOMMENDATIONS
Non-Directional Tires Only
Tires on the front and rear axles of vehicles
operate at different loads and perform different
steering, handling, and braking functions. For
these reasons, they wear at unequal rates and
develop irregular wear patterns. These effects
can be reduced by timely rotation of tires. The
benefits of rotation are especially worthwhile
with aggressive tread designs such as those on
On/Off Road type tires. Rotation will increase
tread life, help to maintain mud, snow, and wet
traction levels, and contribute to a smooth,
quiet ride.
Tire Rotation
Refer to the “Maintenance Schedule” in Section 8 for the proper maintenance intervals.
More frequent rotation is permissible if desired.
The reasons for any rapid or unusual wear
should be corrected prior to rotation being
performed.
TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR SYSTEM
(TPMS)
The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
will warn the driver of a low tire pressure based
on the vehicle recommended cold tire pressure.
The tire pressure will vary with temperature by
about 1 psi (7 kPa) for every 12°F (–11°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. Refer
to the “Tires – General Information” in this
section 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 threshold for any reason,
including low temperature effects, or 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 recommended cold tire pressure. Once
the “TIRE LOW PRESSURE” message appears,
the tire pressure must be increased to the
recommended cold tire pressure in order for
the “TIRE LOW PRESSURE” message to be
turned off. The system will automatically update
and the “TIRE LOW PRESSURE” message will
turn off once the updated tire pressures have
been received. The vehicle may need to be
driven for up to 20 minutes above 15 mph
(24 km/h) to receive this information.
For example, your vehicle has a recommended
cold (parked for more than three hours) tire
pressure of 33 psi (227 kPa). If the ambient
temperature is 68°F (20°C) and the measured
tire pressure is 28 psi (193 kPa), a temperature
drop to 20°F (-7°C) will decrease the tire pressure to approximately 24 psi (165 kPa). This tire
pressure is sufficiently low enough to display
the “TIRE LOW PRESSURE” message. Driving
the vehicle may cause the tire pressure to rise
to approximately 28 psi (193 kPa), but the
“TIRE LOW PRESSURE” message will still display. In this situation, the “TIRE LOW PRESSURE” message will turn OFF only after the
tires have been inflated to the vehicle’s recommended cold tire pressure value.
CAUTION!
• The TPMS has been optimized for the
original equipment tires and wheels. TPMS
pressures 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 aftermarket tire
sealants or balance beads if your vehicle is
equipped with a TPMS, as damage to the
sensors may result.
• 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 Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensor.
171
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 gauge,
even if under-inflation has not reached
the level to trigger the display of the
“TIRE LOW PRESSURE” message.
• Seasonal temperature changes will affect
tire pressure, and the TPMS will monitor
the actual tire pressure in the tire.
172
Base 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 regularly check the tire pressure in all of your
tires, 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 Electronic
Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)
A tire pressure monitoring sensor is located in
the spare wheel, if the vehicle is equipped with
a matching full-size spare wheel and tire assembly. The matching full-size spare tire can be
used in place of any of the four road tires. A low
spare tire will not cause the ⬙TIRE LOW PRESSURE⬙ message to display or the chime to
sound.
TIRE LOW PRESSURE Warning
A ⬙TIRE LOW PRESSURE⬙ message will display
in the instrument cluster, and an audible chime
will be activated, when one or more of the four
active road tire pressures are low. Should this
occur, you should stop as soon as possible,
check the inflation pressure of each tire on your
vehicle, and inflate each tire to the vehicle’s
recommended cold placard pressure value.
The system will automatically update and the
⬙TIRE LOW PRESSURE⬙ message will no longer
display, once the updated tire pressures have
been received. The vehicle may need to be
driven for up to 20 minutes above 15 mph
(24 km/h) to receive this information.
CHECK TPM SYSTEM Warning
The ⬙CHECK TPM SYSTEM⬙ message will be
displayed when a system fault is detected. The
system fault will also sound a chime. If the
ignition switch is cycled, this sequence will
repeat, providing the system fault still exists.
The ⬙CHECK TPM SYSTEM⬙ message will no
longer be displayed when the fault condition no
longer exists. A system fault can occur by any
of the following:
1. Jamming due to electronic devices or driving next to facilities emitting the same Radio
Frequencies as the TPM sensors.
2. Installing some form of aftermarket window
tinting that affects radio wave signals.
3. Lots of snow or ice around the wheels or
wheel housings.
4. Using tire chains on the vehicle.
5. Using wheels/tires not equipped with TPM
sensors.
NOTE:
• If your vehicle is equipped with a matching full-size spare wheel and tire assembly, it has a tire pressure monitoring sensor, and can be monitored by the Tire
Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). In
the event that the matching full-size spare
tire is swapped with a low pressure road
tire, the next ignition switch cycle will still
show the ⴖTIRE LOW PRESSUREⴖ message, and a chime to sound. Driving the
vehicle for up to 20 minutes above 15 mph
(24 km/h) will turn off the ⴖTIRE LOW
PRESSUREⴖ message, as long as none of
the road tires are below the low pressure
warning threshold.
• If your vehicle is not equipped with a
matching full-size spare wheel and tire
assembly, it does not have a tire pressure
monitoring sensor in the spare tire. The
TPMS will not be able to monitor the tire
pressure. If you install the spare tire, in
place of a road tire, that has a pressure
below the low-pressure warning limit,
upon the next ignition switch cycle, a
chime will sound and the ⴖTIRE LOW
PRESSUREⴖ message will still be displayed. After driving the vehicle for up to
20 minutes above 15 mph (25 km/h), the
ⴖCHECK TPM SYSTEMⴖ message will be
displayed. For each subsequent ignition
switch cycle, a chime will sound and the
ⴖCHECK TPM SYSTEMⴖ message will be
displayed. Once you repair or replace the
original road tire, and reinstall it on the
vehicle in place of the spare tire, the
TPMS will update automatically and the
ⴖCHECK TPM SYSTEMⴖ message will turn
off, 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.
Premium System — If Equipped
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 regularly check the tire pressure in all of your
tires and to maintain the proper pressure.
The Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) consists of the following components:
• Receiver Module
• Four Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensors
• Three Trigger Modules (mounted in three of
the four wheel wells)
173
• Various Tire Pressure Monitoring System
Messages, which display in the Electronic
Vehicle Information Center (EVIC), and a
graphic displaying tire pressures
NOTE:
Your system can be set to display pressure
units in PSI, kPa, or BAR.
A tire pressure monitoring sensor is located in
the spare wheel, if the vehicle is equipped with
a matching full-size spare wheel and tire assembly. The matching full-size spare tire can be
used in place of any of the four road tires. A low
spare tire will set the “SPARE LOW PRESSURE”
message, but it will not cause the chime to
sound.
Tire Pressure Monitoring Low Pressure
Warnings
When one or more of the four active road tire
pressures are low, an audible chime will sound,
the EVIC will display one or more Low Pressure
messages (Left Front, Left Rear, Right Front,
Right Rear) for three seconds, and a graphic
display of the pressure value(s) with the low
tire(s) “flashing.” Refer to “Electronic Vehicle
Information Center (EVIC)” in Section 4 of this
manual.
174
CHECK TPM SYSTEM Warning
When a system fault is detected, a chime will
sound. The EVIC will display a “CHECK TPM
SYSTEM” message. This message is then followed by a graphic display, with “- -“ in place of
the pressure value(s), indicating which Tire
Pressure Monitoring Sensor(s) is not being received.
NOTE:
Your system can be set to display pressure
units in PSI, kPa, or BAR.
Should a low tire condition occur on any of the
four active road tire(s), you should stop as soon
as possible, and inflate the low tire(s) that is
“flashing” on the graphic display to the vehicle’s recommended cold tire pressure. The
system will automatically update, the graphic
display of the pressure value(s) will stop “flashing,” and the Low Pressure text message(s) will
switch off once the updated tire pressure(s)
have been received. The vehicle may need to
be driven for up to 20 minutes above 15 mph
(24 km/h) to receive this information.
If the ignition switch is cycled, this sequence
will repeat, providing the system fault still exists. If the system fault no longer exists, the
⬙CHECK TPM SYSTEM⬙ message will not be
present, and a pressure value will be displayed
instead of dashes. A system fault can occur by
any of the following:
1. Jamming due to electronic devices or driving next to facilities emitting the same Radio
Frequencies as the TPM sensors.
2. Installing some form of aftermarket window
tinting that affects radio wave signals.
3. Lots of snow or ice around the wheels or
wheel housings.
4. Using tire chains on the vehicle.
5. Using wheels/tires not equipped with TPM
sensors.
The EVIC will also display a ⬙CHECK TPM
SYSTEM⬙ message when a system fault is
detected possibly related to the trigger component. In this case, the ⬙CHECK TPM SYSTEM⬙
message is then followed by a graphic display,
with pressure values still shown. This indicates
the pressure values are still being received
from the TPM Sensors. However, the system
still needs to be serviced as long as the
⬙CHECK TPM SYSTEM⬙ message exists.
NOTE:
• If your vehicle is equipped with a matching full-size spare wheel and tire assembly, it has a tire pressure monitoring sensor, and can be monitored by the Tire
Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). In
the event that the matching full-size spare
tire is swapped with a low pressure road
tire, the next ignition switch cycle will still
cause a chime to sound, a Low Pressure
message to appear in the EVIC, and the
graphic display will still show the low tire
pressure value “flashing.” Driving the vehicle for up to 20 minutes above 15 mph
(24 km/h) will turn off the Low Pressure
message as long as none of road tires are
below the low pressure warning threshold. The EVIC will also display a “SPARE
LOW PRESSURE” message, and the
graphic display will show a tire pressure
value in place of the “flashing” low tire
pressure value.
• If your vehicle is not equipped with a
matching full-size spare wheel and tire
assembly, it does not have a tire pressure
monitoring sensor in the spare tire. The
TPMS will not be able to monitor the tire
pressure. If you install the spare tire in
place of a road tire that has a pressure
below the low-pressure warning limit,
upon the next ignition switch cycle, a
chime will sound, and the EVIC will still
display a Low Pressure message and a
“flashing” pressure value in the graphic
display. After driving the vehicle for up to
20 minutes above 15 mph (24 km/h), the
EVIC will display a “CHECK TPM SYSTEMⴖ message and then display dashes (-) in place of the pressure value. For each
subsequent ignition switch cycle, a chime
will sound, the EVIC will display a
ⴖCHECK TPM SYSTEMⴖ message and then
display dashes (- -) in place of the pressure value. Once you repair or replace the
original road tire, and reinstall it on the
vehicle in place of the spare tire, the
TPMS will update automatically.
In addition, the graphic in the EVIC will display
a new pressure value instead of dashes (- -), as
long as no tire pressure is below the lowpressure warning limit in any of the four active
road tires. The vehicle may need to be driven
175
for up to 20 minutes above 15 mph (24 km/h) in
order for the TPMS to receive this information.
TPMS Deactivation
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 24 km/h (15 mph). The TPMS
will chime and the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) will display the “CHECK TPM
SYSTEM” message. Beginning with the next
ignition switch cycle, the TPMS will no longer
chime or display the “CHECK TPM SYSTEM”
message in the EVIC.
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 24 km/h
(15 mph). The TPMS will chime and the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) will
display the “CHECK TPM SYSTEM” message a
176
maximum of 60 seconds as long as no system
fault exists. On the next ignition switch cycle the
⬙CHECK TPM SYSTEM⬙ message will no longer
be displayed as long as no system fault exists.
General Information
Transmitter and receivers operate on a carrier
frequency of 433.92 MHz as required by EEC
regulations. These devices must be certified to
conform to specific regulations in each individual country. Two sets of regulations are
involved: ETS (European Telecommunication
Standard) 300–220, which most countries use,
and German BZT federal regulation 225Z125,
which is based on ETC 300–220 but has additional unique requirements. Other defined requirements are noted in ANNEX VI of COMMISSION DIRECTIVE 95/56/EC. Operation is
subject to the following conditions:
• This device may not cause harmful interference.
• This device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may
cause undesired operation.
FUEL REQUIREMENTS —
GASOLINE ENGINE
3.7 Engine
These engines are designed to meet all emissions regulations and provide excellent fuel
economy and performance when using highquality unleaded gasoline with a minimum research octane rating of 91. The use of premium
gasoline is not recommended, as it will not
provide any benefit over regular gasoline in
these engines.
5.7L Engine
Theses engines are designed to meet all emissions regulations and provide satisfactory fuel
economy and performance when using highquality unleaded gasoline having an octane
range of 91 to 95. The manufacturer recommends the use of 95 octane for optimum performance. The use of premium gasoline is not
recommended, as it will not provide any benefit
over regular gasoline in these engines.
Light spark knock at low engine speeds is not
harmful to your engine. However, continued
heavy spark knock at high speeds can cause
damage, and immediate service is required.
Poor quality gasoline can cause problems such
as hard starting, stalling, and hesitations. If you
experience these symptoms, try another brand
of gasoline before considering service for the
vehicle.
Poor quality gasoline can cause problems such
as hard starting, stalling and stumble. If you
experience these problems, try another brand
of gasoline before considering service for the
vehicle.
Over 40 auto manufacturers worldwide have
issued and endorsed consistent gasoline
specifications (the Worldwide Fuel Charter,
WWFC) which define fuel properties necessary
to deliver enhanced emissions, performance,
and durability for your vehicle. The manufacturer recommends the use of gasoline that
meets the WWFC specifications if they are
available.
Methanol
(Methyl or Wood Alcohol) is used in a variety of
concentrations when blended with unleaded
gasoline. You may find fuels containing 3% or
more Methanol along with other alcohols called
cosolvents. Problems that result from using
Methanol/gasoline or E85 Ethanol blends are
not the responsibility of the manufacturer. While
MTBE is an oxygenate made from Methanol, it
does not have the negative effects of Methanol.
Besides using unleaded gasoline with the
proper octane rating, gasolines that contain
detergents, corrosion and stability additives
are recommended. Using gasolines that have
these additives may help improve fuel
economy, reduce emissions, and maintain vehicle performance.
CAUTION!
DO NOT use gasolines containing Methanol
or E85 Ethanol. Use of these blends may
result in starting and driveability problems and
may damage critical fuel system components.
Ethanol
The manufacturer recommends that your vehicle be operated on fuel containing no more
than 10% Ethanol. Purchasing your fuel from a
reputable supplier may reduce the risk of exceeding this 10% limit and/or of receiving fuel
with abnormal properties. It should also be
noted that an increase in fuel consumption
should be expected when using Ethanolblended fuels, due to the lower energy content
of Ethanol.
Problems that result from using Methanol/
gasoline or E85 Ethanol blends are not the
responsibility of the manufacturer. While MTBE
is an oxygenate made from Methanol, it does
not have the negative effects of Methanol.
CAUTION!
Use of fuel with Ethanol content higher than
10% may result in engine malfunction, starting
and operating difficulties and materials degradation. These adverse effects could result in
permanent damage to your vehicle.
177
Clean Air Gasoline
Many gasolines are now being blended that
contribute to cleaner air, especially in those
areas where air pollution levels are high. These
new blends provide a cleaner burning fuel and
some are referred to as “reformulated gasoline.”
The manufacturer supports these efforts toward
cleaner air. You can help by using these blends
as they become available.
Materials Added to Fuel
Besides using unleaded gasoline with the
proper octane rating, gasolines that contain
detergents, corrosion and stability additives
are recommended. Using gasolines that have
these additives will help improve fuel economy,
reduce emissions, and maintain vehicle performance.
Indiscriminate use of fuel system cleaning
agents should be avoided. Many of these materials intended for gum and varnish removal
may contain active solvents or similar ingredients. These can harm fuel system gasket and
diaphragm materials.
178
WARNING!
Carbon monoxide (CO) in exhaust gases is
deadly. Follow the precautions below to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning:
• Do not inhale exhaust gases. They contain
carbon monoxide, a colorless and odorless
gas which can kill. Never run the engine in
a closed area, such as a garage, and never
sit in a parked vehicle with the engine
running for an extended period. If the vehicle is stopped in an open area with the
engine running for more than a short period, adjust the ventilation system to force
fresh, outside air into the vehicle.
• Guard against carbon monoxide with
proper maintenance. Have the exhaust
system inspected every time the vehicle is
raised. Have any abnormal conditions repaired promptly. Until repaired, drive with
all side windows fully open.
(Continued)
WARNING! (Continued)
• Keep the liftgate closed when driving your
vehicle to prevent carbon monoxide and
other poisonous exhaust gases from entering the vehicle.
FUEL REQUIREMENTS — DIESEL
ENGINE
Use good quality diesel fuel from a reputable
supplier. 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.
CAUTION!
The manufacturer 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.
ADDING FUEL
Locking Fuel Filler Cap (Gas Cap)
The locking fuel cap is located on the left side
of the vehicle. If the fuel cap is lost or damaged,
be sure the replacement cap is for use with this
vehicle.
4. Rotate the ignition key back to the left to
remove.
5. To replace the cap, insert it into the filler
neck and tighten to the right until at least three
clicks are heard.
WARNING!
Do not use alcohol or gasoline as a fuelblending agent. They can be unstable under
certain conditions and hazardous or explosive
when mixed with diesel fuel.
Diesel fuel is seldom completely free of water.
To prevent fuel system trouble, drain the accumulated water from the fuel/water separator
using the provided fuel/water separator drain. If
you buy good quality fuel and follow the cold
weather advice above, fuel conditioners should
not be required in your vehicle. If available in
your area, a high cetane “premium” diesel fuel
may offer improved cold-starting and warm-up
performance.
3. After removing the gas cap, place the gas
cap tether cable over a hook on the inside of
the fuel door. This keeps the gas cap suspended away from the body and protects the
vehicle’s surface.
Fuel Filler Door
1. Turn off the engine.
2. Insert the ignition key into the fuel cap and
turn the key one-quarter turn to the right, then
rotate the fuel cap to the left to remove.
CAUTION!
• Damage to the fuel system or emissions
control system could result from using an
improper fuel tank filler tube cap (gas cap).
• A poorly fitting gas cap could let impurities
into the fuel system.
• A poorly fitting gas cap may cause the
Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) to turn on.
• To avoid fuel spillage and overfilling, do not
“top off” the fuel tank after filling. When the
fuel nozzle “clicks” or shuts off, the fuel tank
is full.
179
WARNING!
• Remove the fuel tank filler tube cap (gas
cap) slowly to prevent fuel spray from the
filler neck, which may cause injury.
• The volatility of some gasolines may cause
a buildup of pressure in the fuel tank that
may increase while you drive. This pressure can result in a spray of gasoline and/or
vapors when the cap is removed from a hot
vehicle. Removing the cap slowly allows
the pressure to vent and prevents fuel
spray.
• Never have any smoking materials lit in or
near the vehicle when the gas cap is removed or the tank filled.
• Never add fuel to the vehicle when the
engine is running.
• A fire may result if gasoline is pumped into
a portable container that is inside of a
vehicle. You could be burned. Always place
gas containers on the ground while filling.

NOTE:
• Tighten the gas cap until you hear a
“clicking” sound. This is an indication
that the gas cap is tightened properly. The
MIL in the instrument cluster may turn on
if the gas cap is not secured properly.
Make sure that the gas cap is tightened
each time the vehicle is refueled.
• When the fuel nozzle “clicks” or shuts off,
the fuel tank is full.
Loose Fuel Filler Cap Message
If the vehicle diagnostic system determines
that the fuel filler cap is loose, improperly
installed, or damaged, a “CHECK GAS CAP”

TRAILER TOWING
In this section you will find safety tips and
information on limits to the type of towing you
can reasonably do with your vehicle. Before
towing a trailer carefully review this information
to tow your load as efficiently and safely as
possible.
To maintain warranty coverage, follow the requirements and recommendations in this
manual concerning vehicles used for trailer
towing.
Common Towing Definitions
The following trailer towing related definitions
will assist you in understanding the following
information:
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR)
The GVWR is the total allowable weight of your
vehicle. This includes driver, passengers,
cargo and tongue weight. The total load must
be limited so that you do not exceed the GVWR.
Gross Trailer Weight (GTW)
The GTW is the weight of the trailer plus the
weight of all cargo, consumables and equipment (permanent or temporary) loaded in or on
the trailer in its ⬙loaded and ready for operation⬙
condition. The recommended way to measure
GTW is to put your fully loaded trailer on a
vehicle scale. The entire weight of the trailer
must be supported by the scale.
Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR)
The GCWR is the total permissible weight of
your vehicle and trailer when weighed in combination.
NOTE:
The GCWR rating includes a 150 lbs (68 kg)
allowance for the presence of a driver.
Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR)
The GAWR is the maximum capacity of the front
and rear axles. Distribute the load over the front
and rear axles evenly. Make sure that you do
not exceed either front or rear GAWR.
WARNING!
It is important that you do not exceed the
maximum front or rear GAWR. A dangerous
driving condition can result if either rating is
exceeded. You could lose control of the vehicle and have an accident.
Tongue Weight (TW)
The tongue weight is the downward force exerted on the hitch ball by the trailer. In most
cases, it should not be less than 7% or more
than 10% of the trailer load. Tongue weight
must not exceed the lesser of either the hitch
certification rating, or the trailer tongue chassis
rating. It should never be less than 4% of the
trailer load, and not less than 55 lbs (25 kg).
You must consider tongue load as part of the
load on your vehicle and its GAWR.
WARNING!
An improperly adjusted hitch system may
reduce handling, stability and braking performance and could result in an accident. Consult with your hitch and trailer manufacturer or
a reputable trailer/caravan dealer for additional information.
Breakaway Cable Attachment
European braking regulations for braked trailers up to 7,700 lbs (3 500 kg), require trailers to
be fitted with either a secondary coupling or
breakaway cable.
The recommended location for attaching the
normal trailer’s breakaway cable is in the
stamped slot located on the sidewall of the
hitch receiver.
With Attachment Point
• For detachable tow bar pass the cable
through the attachment point and clip it back
onto itself.
Frontal Area
The frontal area is the maximum height and
maximum width of the front of a trailer.
Detachable Ball Clip Loop Method
181
• For fixed ball tow bar attach the clip directly
to the designated point. This alternative must
be specifically permitted by the trailer manufacturer since the clip may not be sufficiently
strong for use in the way.
Without Attachment Points
• For detachable ball tow bar you must follow
the recommended manufacturer or supplier
procedure.
• For fixed ball tow bar loop the cable around
the neck of the tow ball. If you fit the cable
like this, use a single loop only.

Maximum trailer towing speed is limited to 62 mph (100 km/h) unless local laws require a lower speed.
NOTE:
The trailer tongue weight must be considered as part of the combined weight of
occupants and cargo, and should never exceed the weight referenced on the Tire and
Loading Information placard. Refer to
“Tires–General Information” in this section.
Consider the following items when computing
the weight on the rear axle of the vehicle:
for the maximum combined weight of occupants and cargo for your vehicle.
• The tongue weight of the trailer.
Towing Requirements
• The weight of any other type of cargo or
equipment put in or on your vehicle.
To promote proper break-in of your new vehicle
drivetrain components the following guidelines
are recommended:
Trailer and Tongue Weight
NOTE:
Remember that everything put into or on the
trailer adds to the load on your vehicle. Also,
additional factory-installed options, or
dealer-installed options, must be considered as part of the total load on your vehicle.
Refer to the Tire and Loading Information
placard, located on the drivers door pillar,
Loads balanced over the wheels or heavier in
the rear can cause the trailer to sway severely
side to side which will cause loss of control of
the vehicle and trailer. Failure to load trailers
heavier in front is the cause of many trailer
accidents.
Never exceed the maximum tongue weight
stamped on your trailer hitch.
• The weight of the driver and all passengers.
CAUTION!
• Avoid towing a trailer for the first 500 miles
(805 km) of vehicle operation. Doing so
may damage your vehicle.
• During the first 500 miles (805 km) of trailer
towing, limit your speed to 50 mph
(80 km/h).
183
WARNING!
Improper towing can lead to an injury accident. Follow these guidelines to make your
trailer towing as safe as possible:
• Make certain that the load is secured in the
trailer and will not shift during travel. When
trailering cargo that is not fully secured,
dynamic load shifts can occur that may be
difficult for the driver to control. You could
lose control of your vehicle and have an
accident.
• All trailer hitches should be professionally
installed on your vehicle.
• When hauling cargo or towing a trailer, do
not overload your vehicle or trailer. Overloading can cause a loss of control, poor
performance or damage to brakes, axle,
engine, transmission, steering, suspension, chassis structure or tires.
(Continued)
184
WARNING! (Continued)
• Safety chains must always be used between your vehicle and trailer. Always connect the chains to the frame or hook retainers of the vehicle hitch. Cross the chains
under the trailer tongue and allow enough
slack for turning corners.
• Vehicles with trailers should not be parked
on a grade. When parking, apply the parking brake on the tow vehicle. Put the tow
vehicle automatic transmission in PARK.
Always, block or ⬙chock⬙ the trailer wheels.
• GCWR must not be exceeded.
• Total weight must be distributed between the tow vehicle and the trailer
such that the following four ratings are
not exceeded:
1. GVWR
2. GTW
3. GAWR
4. Tongue weight rating for the trailer hitch
utilized.
Towing Requirements – Tires
− Do not attempt to tow a trailer while using a
compact spare tire.
− Proper tire inflation pressures are essential
for the safe and satisfactory operation of
your vehicle. Refer to “Tires – General Information” in this section for proper tire inflation
procedures.
− Check the trailer tires for proper tire inflation
pressures before trailer usage.
− Check for signs of tire wear or visible tire
damage before towing a trailer. Refer to
“Tires – General Information” in this section
for proper inspection procedures.
− When replacing tires, refer to “Tires – General Information” in this section for proper tire
replacement procedures. Replacing tires
with a higher load carrying capacity will not
increase the vehicle’s GVWR and GAWR
limits.
Towing Requirements – Trailer Brakes
− Do not interconnect the hydraulic brake system or vacuum system of your vehicle with
that of the trailer. This could cause inadequate braking and possible personal injury.
− When towing a trailer equipped with a hydraulic surge actuated brake system, an
electronic brake controller is not required.
− Trailer brakes are recommended for trailers
over 1,000 lbs (450 kg) and required for
trailers in excess of 1,653 lbs (750 kg).
CAUTION!
If the trailer weighs more than 1,000 lbs
(450 kg) loaded, it should have its own brakes
and they should be of adequate capacity.
Failure to do this could lead to accelerated
brake lining wear, higher brake pedal effort,
and longer stopping distances.
WARNING!
• Do not connect trailer brakes to your vehicle’s hydraulic brake lines. It can overload
your brake system and cause it to fail. You
might not have brakes when you need
them and could have an accident.
• Towing any trailer will increase your stopping distance. When towing you should
allow for additional space between your
vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.
Failure to do so could result in an accident.
Towing Requirements – Trailer Lights &
Wiring
Whenever you pull a trailer, regardless of the
trailer size, stop lights and turn signals on the
trailer are required for motoring safety.
The Trailer Tow Package may include a 7 pin or
a 13 pin wiring harness. Use a factory approved trailer harness and connector.
NOTE:
Do not cut or splice wiring into the vehicles
wiring harness.
The electrical connections are all complete to
the vehicle but you must mate the harness to a
trailer connector.

− Do not use in hilly terrain or with heavy loads.
− When using the speed control, if you experience speed drops greater than 10 mph
(16 km/h), disengage until you can get back
to cruising speed.
− Use speed control in flat terrain and with light
loads to maximize fuel efficiency.
Cooling System
To reduce potential for engine and transmission
overheating, take the following actions:
− City Driving
When stopped for short periods of time, shift
the transmission into NEUTRAL and increase
engine idle speed.
− Highway Driving
Reduce speed.
− Air Conditioning
Turn off temporarily.
Trailer Hitch Attaching Points
Your vehicle will require extra equipment to tow
a trailer safely and efficiently. The trailer tow
hitch must be attached to your vehicle using
the provided attaching points on the vehicle’s
frame. Refer to the following chart to determine
the accurate attaching points. Other equip187
ment, such as trailer sway controls and braking
equipment, trailer equalizing (leveling) equipment and low profile mirrors, may also be
required or strongly recommended.

HAZARD WARNING FLASHERS
IF YOUR ENGINE OVERHEATS
The Hazard Warning flasher switch is located
on the switch bank just above the climate
controls.
In any of the following situations, you can
reduce the potential for overheating by taking
the appropriate action.
Press the switch to turn on the Hazard
Warning flasher. When the switch is
activated, all directional turn signals will
flash on and off to warn oncoming
traffic of an emergency. Press the switch a
second time to turn off the Hazard Warning
flasher.
• On the highways — Slow down.
This is an emergency warning system and
should not be used when the vehicle is in
motion. Use it when your vehicle is disabled
and is creating a safety hazard for other motorists.
If it is necessary to leave the vehicle to go for
service, the Hazard Warning flasher will continue to operate with the ignition key removed
and the vehicle locked.
NOTE:
With extended use, the Hazard Warning
flasher may run down your battery.
192
• In city traffic — While stopped, shift the
transmission to NEUTRAL, but do not increase the engine idle speed.
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.
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.
JACKING AND TIRE CHANGING
WARNING!
• Getting under a jacked-up vehicle is dangerous. The vehicle could slip off the jack
and fall on you. You could be crushed.
Never get any part of your body under a
vehicle that is on a jack. If you need to get
under a raised vehicle, take it to a service
center where it can be raised on a lift.
• The jack is designed to be used 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.
Jack Location
The scissor-type jack and tire changing tools
are located in the passenger side compartment, behind the second row seat.
nut is located under a plastic cover at the
center-rear of the cargo floor area, just inside
the liftgate opening.
CAUTION!
Do not use power tools to winch the tire up or
down. Impact type tools can damage the
winch mechanism.
Jack Storage Location
Spare Tire Stowage
The spare tire is stowed under the rear of the
vehicle by means of a cable winch mechanism.
To remove or stow the spare, use the jack
handle to rotate the “spare tire drive” nut. The
Lowering/Raising Spare Tire
193
Spare Tire Removal
Fit the jack handle extension over the drive nut.
Use the lug wrench to rotate the nut counterclockwise until the spare is on the ground with
enough slack in the cable to allow you to pull
the tire out from under the vehicle.
CAUTION!
• The winch mechanism is designed for use
with the jack extension tube only. Use of an
air wrench or other power tools is not
recommended and can damage the winch.
• When the spare is clear, tilt the retainer at
the end of the cable and pull it through the
center of the wheel.
Preparations for Jacking
1. Park the vehicle on a firm, level surface.
Avoid ice or slippery surfaces.
WARNING!
Do not attempt to change a tire on the side of
the vehicle closest to moving traffic. Pull far
enough off the road to avoid being hit when
operating the jack or changing the wheel.
2. Set the parking brake.
3. Place the shift lever into PARK.
4. Turn the ignition OFF.
5. Turn on the Hazard Warning flasher.
6. Block both the front
and rear of the wheel
diagonally opposite of
the jacking position. For
example, if changing
the right front tire, block
the left rear wheel.
NOTE:
Passengers should not remain in the vehicle
when the vehicle is being jacked.
Jacking Instructions
WARNING!
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.
• 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.
• Never start or run the engine with the
vehicle on a jack.
• 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.
(Continued)
194
WARNING! (Continued)
• 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.
• Turn on the Hazard Warning flasher.
2. Loosen (but do not remove) the wheel lug
nuts by turning them to the left, one turn, while
the wheel is still on the ground.
3. Assemble the jack and jacking tools as
shown. Connect jack handle driver (1) to two
extensions (2) then to the lug wrench (3).
Front Jacking Location
Jack Warning Label
1. Remove the spare tire, jack, and tools from
storage.
4. Locate the jack as shown. For the front axle,
place it under the front lower control arm. Do
not raise the vehicle until you are sure the
jack is fully engaged.

For the rear axle, place it under the axle near
the wheel to be changed. Ensure the jack is
closest to the inside of the wheel when jacking
on the rear axle. Do not raise the vehicle until
you are sure the jack is fully engaged.
WARNING!
Raising the vehicle higher than necessary can
make the vehicle less stable. It could slip off
the jack and hurt someone near it. Raise the
vehicle only enough to remove the tire.
6. Remove the lug nuts and wheel.
7. Position the spare wheel/tire on the vehicle
and install the lug nuts with the cone-shaped
end toward the wheel. Lightly tighten the nuts.
To avoid the risk of forcing the vehicle off the
jack, do not tighten the nuts fully until the
vehicle has been lowered.
Rear Jacking Location
5. Raise the vehicle by turning the jack screw
clockwise. Raise the vehicle only until the tire
just clears the surface and enough clearance is
obtained to install the spare tire. Minimum tire
lift provides maximum stability.
196
8. Lower the vehicle by turning the jack screw
counterclockwise, and remove the jack and
wheel blocks.
9. Finish tightening the lug nuts. Push down on
the wrench while tightening for increased leverage. Alternate nuts until each nut has been
tightened twice. The correct wheel nut tightness is 95 ft lbs (130 N·m). If in doubt about the
correct tightness, have them checked with a
torque wrench by your authorized dealer or at a
service station.
10. Lower the jack to its fully closed position.
WARNING!
A loose tire or jack, thrown forward in a
collision or hard stop could endanger the
occupants of the vehicle. Always stow the jack
parts and the spare tire in the places provided.
11. Secure the tire, jack, and tools in their
proper locations.
NOTE:
A tire should be stowed with the “beauty”
side up. Storing the tire upside down may
result in scratching or damage to the wheel
face. Continue winching up the tire until you
hear the winch “ratchet” three times. Double
check to ensure the tire is snug against the
underbody of the vehicle. Damage to the
winch cable may result if the vehicle is
driven with the tire loose.
WARNING!
Do not use power tools to winch the tire up or
down. Impact-type tools may damage the
winch mechanism.
12. Reinstall the plastic plug into the floor of the
cargo area.
JUMP-STARTING
If the vehicle has a discharged battery, booster
cables may be used to obtain a start from a

ONBOARD DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM
(OBD)
Your vehicle is equipped with a sophisticated
onboard diagnostic system called OBD II. This
system monitors the performance of the emissions, engine, and automatic 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 your authorized dealer for
service as soon as possible.
CAUTION!
Prolonged driving with the light on could
cause further damage to the emission control
system. It could also affect fuel economy and
drivability.
If the indicator light is flashing, severe catalytic
converter damage and power loss will soon
occur. Immediate service is required.
REPLACEMENT PARTS
Use of genuine MOPAR姞 parts for normal/
scheduled maintenance and repairs is highly
recommended to ensure the designed performance. Damage or failures caused by the use
of non-MOPAR姞 parts for maintenance and
repairs will not be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
The pages that follow contain the required
maintenance services determined by the engineers who designed your vehicle.
Besides those maintenance items specified in
the fixed maintenance schedule, there are
other components which may require servicing
or replacement in the future.
CAUTION!
• Failure to properly maintain your vehicle or
perform repairs and service when necessary could result in more costly repairs,
damage to other components or negatively
impact vehicle performance. Immediately
have potential malfunctions examined by
an authorized dealership or qualified repair
center.
• Your vehicle has been built with improved
fluids that protect the performance and
durability of your vehicle and also allow
extended maintenance intervals. Do not
use chemical flushes in these components
as the chemicals can damage your engine,
transmission, power steering or air conditioning. Such damage is not covered by the
New Vehicle Limited Warranty. If a flush is
needed because of component malfunction, use only the specified fluid for the
flushing procedure.

Engine Oil – Gasoline Engines
Checking Oil Level
To assure proper lubrication of your vehicle’s
engine, the engine oil must be maintained at
the correct level. The best time to check the
engine oil level is about five minutes after a fully
warmed up engine is shut off or before starting
the engine after it has sat overnight.
Checking the oil while the vehicle is on level
ground will improve the accuracy of the oil level
readings. Maintain the oil level in the SAFE level
range. Adding 1 U.S. Quart (0.95L) of oil when
the level is at the bottom of the SAFE range will
result in the level being at the top of the SAFE
range.
CAUTION!
Overfilling or underfilling the crankcase will
cause aeration or loss of oil pressure. This
could damage your engine.
Change Engine Oil
Refer to the “Maintenance Schedule” in Section 8 for the proper maintenance intervals.

• It is essential when replacing the cables on
the battery that the positive cable is attached to the positive post, and the negative cable is attached to the negative post.
Battery posts are marked (+) positive and
(-) negative and identified on the battery
case.
• If a “fast charger” is used while battery is in
the vehicle, disconnect both vehicle battery
cables before connecting the charger to the
battery. Do not use a “fast charger” to
provide starting voltage.
Air Conditioner Maintenance
For best possible performance, your air conditioner should be checked and serviced by an
authorized dealer at the start of each warm
season. This service should include cleaning of
the condenser fins and a performance test.
Drive belt condition should also be checked at
this time.
CAUTION!
Do not use chemical flushes in your air conditioning system as the chemicals can damage your air conditioning components. Such
damage is not covered by the New Vehicle
Limited Warranty.
WARNING!
• Use only refrigerants and compressor lubricants approved by the manufacturer for
your air conditioning system. Some unapproved refrigerants are flammable and can
explode, injuring you. Other unapproved
refrigerants or lubricants can cause the
system to fail, requiring costly repairs.
• The air conditioning system contains refrigerant under high pressure. To avoid risk of
personal injury or damage to the system,
adding refrigerant or any repair requiring
lines to be disconnected should be done by
an experienced repairman.
NOTE:
Use only manufacturer approved A/C System Sealers, Stop Leak Products, Seal Conditioners, Compressor Oil, and Refrigerants.
Refrigerant Recovery and Recycling
R-134a Air Conditioning Refrigerant is a hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) that is endorsed by the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and is
an ozone-saving product. However, the manufacturer recommends that air conditioning service be performed by authorized dealers or
other service facilities using recovery and recycling equipment.
Body Lubrication
Locks and all body pivot points, including such
items as seat tracks, door hinge pivot points
and rollers, liftgate, tailgate, sliding doors and
hood hinges, should be lubricated periodically
with a lithium based grease, such as MOPAR姞
Spray White Lube or equivalent to assure quiet,
easy operation and to protect against rust and
wear. Prior to the application of any lubricant,
the parts concerned should be wiped clean to
remove dust and grit; after lubricating excess
oil and grease should be removed. Particular
attention should also be given to hood latching
components to ensure proper function. When
performing other underhood services, the hood
latch, release mechanism and safety catch
should be cleaned and lubricated.
The external lock cylinders should be lubricated twice a year, preferably in the Fall and
Spring. Apply a small amount of a high quality
lubricant, such as MOPAR姞 Lock Cylinder Lubricant or equivalent directly into the lock cylinder.
Windshield Wiper Blades
Clean the rubber edges of the wiper blades
and the windshield periodically with a sponge
or soft cloth and a mild nonabrasive cleaner to
remove accumulations of salt or road film.
Operation of the wipers on dry glass for long
periods may cause deterioration of the wiper
blades. Always use washer fluid when using
the wipers to remove salt or dirt from a dry
windshield.
Avoid using the wiper blades to wipe frost or
ice from the windshield. Keep the blade rubber
out of contact with petroleum products such as
engine oil, gasoline, etc.
209
NOTE:
Life expectancy of wiper blades varies depending on geographical area and frequency of use. Poor performance of blades
may be present with chattering, marks, water lines or wet spots. If any condition is
present please proceed to clean wiper
blades with humid cloth removing any debris that may be affecting its function.
Adding Washer Fluid
On vehicles equipped with a Electronic Vehicle
Information Center (EVIC), the low washer fluid
level will be indicated. When the sensor detects
a low fluid level, the windshield will light on the
vehicle graphic outline and the “WASHER
FLUID LOW” message will be displayed.
The fluid reservoir for the windshield washers
and the rear window washer is shared. The fluid
reservoir is located in the engine compartment,
be sure to check the fluid level at regular
intervals. Fill the reservoir with windshield
washer solvent only (not radiator antifreeze).
When refilling the washer fluid reservoir, take
some washer fluid and apply it to a cloth or
towel and wipe clean the wiper blades, this will
210
help blade performance. To prevent freeze-up
of your windshield washer system in cold
weather, select a solution or mixture that meets
or exceeds the temperature range of your climate. This rating information can be found on
most washer fluid containers.
WARNING!
Commercially available windshield washer
solvents are flammable. They could ignite and
burn you. Care must be exercised when filling
or working around the washer solution.
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.
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, refer to Exhaust Gas in
the Safety Tips section of this manual.
Exhaust System
The best protection against carbon monoxide
entry into the vehicle body is a properly maintained engine exhaust system.
If you notice a change in the sound of the
exhaust system; or if the exhaust fumes can be
detected inside the vehicle; or when the underside or rear of the vehicle is damaged; have an
authorized technician inspect the complete exhaust system and adjacent body areas for
broken, damaged, deteriorated, or mispositioned parts. Open seams or loose connections
CAUTION!
The catalytic converter requires the use of
unleaded fuel only. Leaded gasoline will destroy the effectiveness of the catalyst as an
emissions control device and may seriously
reduce engine performance and cause serious damage to the engine.
Under normal operating conditions, the catalytic converter will not require maintenance.
However, it is important to keep the engine
properly tuned to assure proper catalyst operation and prevent possible catalyst damage.
CAUTION!
Damage to the catalytic converter can result if
your vehicle is not kept in proper operating
condition. In the event of engine malfunction,
particularly involving engine misfire or other
apparent loss of performance, have your vehicle serviced promptly. Continued operation
of your vehicle with a severe malfunction
could cause the converter to overheat, resulting in possible damage to the converter and
vehicle.
NOTE:
Intentional tampering with emissions control systems can result in civil penalties
being assessed against you.
WARNING!
A hot exhaust system can start a fire if you
park over materials that can burn. Such materials might be grass or leaves coming into
contact with your exhaust system. Do not park
or operate your vehicle in areas where your
exhaust system can contact anything that can
burn.
In unusual situations involving grossly malfunctioning engine operation, a scorching odor may
suggest severe and abnormal catalyst overheating. If this occurs, stop the vehicle, turn off
the engine and allow it to cool. Service, including a tuneup to manufacturer’s specifications,
should be obtained immediately.
To minimize the possibility of catalytic converter
damage:
• Do not try to start the engine by pushing or
towing the vehicle.
• Do not idle the engine with any spark plug
wires disconnected or removed, such as
when diagnostic testing, or for prolonged
periods during very rough idle or malfunctioning operating conditions.
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.
• Do not shut off the engine or interrupt the
ignition, when the transmission is in gear and
the vehicle is in motion.
211
Engine Coolant Checks
Check the engine coolant (antifreeze) protection every 12 months (before the onset of
freezing weather, where applicable). If the engine coolant (antifreeze) is dirty or rusty in
appearance, the system should be drained,
flushed and refilled with fresh engine coolant
(antifreeze). Check the front of the A/C condenser for any accumulation of bugs, leaves,
etc. If dirty, clean by gently spraying water from
a garden hose vertically down the face of the
condenser.
Check the engine cooling system hoses for
brittle rubber, cracking, tears, cuts, and tightness of the connection at the coolant recovery
bottle and radiator. Inspect the entire system
for leaks.
With the engine at normal operating temperature (but not running), check the cooling system pressure cap for proper vacuum sealing by
draining a small amount of engine coolant
(antifreeze) from the radiator drain cock. If the
cap is sealing properly, the engine coolant
(antifreeze) will begin to drain from the coolant
212
recovery bottle. DO NOT REMOVE THE COOLANT PRESSURE CAP WHEN THE COOLING
SYSTEM IS HOT.
Cooling System – Drain, Flush, and Refill
If the engine coolant (antifreeze) is dirty and
contains a considerable amount of sediment,
clean and flush with reliable cooling system
cleaner. Follow with a thorough rinsing to remove all deposits and chemicals. Properly dispose of the old engine coolant (antifreeze).
Refer to the “Maintenance Schedule” in Section 8 for the proper maintenance intervals.
Selection Of Coolant
Use only the manufacturer’s recommended engine coolant (antifreeze). Refer to “Fluids, Lubricants, and Genuine Parts” in this section for
the correct fluid type.
CAUTION!
• Mixing of engine coolant (antifreeze), other
than the specified HOAT engine coolant
(antifreeze), may result in engine damage
and may decrease corrosion protection. If a
non-HOAT engine coolant (antifreeze) is
introduced into the cooling system in an
emergency, it should be replaced with the
specified engine coolant (antifreeze) as
soon as possible.
• Do not use water alone or alcohol based
engine coolant (antifreeze) products. Do
not use additional rust inhibitors or antirust
products, as they may not be compatible
with the engine coolant (antifreeze) and
may plug the radiator.
• This vehicle has not been designed for use
with Propylene Glycol-based engine coolant (antifreeze). Use of Propylene Glycolbased engine coolant (antifreeze) is not
recommended.
Adding Coolant
Your vehicle has been built with an improved
engine coolant (antifreeze) that allows extended maintenance intervals. This engine
coolant (antifreeze) can be used up to 5 Years
or 102,000 miles (170 000 km) before replacement. To prevent reducing this extended maintenance period, it is important that you use the
same engine coolant (antifreeze) throughout
the life of your vehicle. Please review these
recommendations for using Hybrid Organic
Additive Technology (HOAT) engine coolant
(antifreeze).
When adding engine coolant (antifreeze):
• The manufacturer recommends using MOPAR姞 Antifreeze/ Coolant 5–Year/100,000 Mile
Formula HOAT (Hybrid Organic Additive
Technology) or equivalent.
• Mix a minimum solution of 50% HOAT engine
coolant (antifreeze) and distilled water. Use
higher concentrations (not to exceed 70%) if
temperatures below -34°F (-37°C) are anticipated.
• Use only high purity water such as distilled
or deionized water when mixing the water/
engine coolant (antifreeze) solution. The use
of lower quality water will reduce the amount
of corrosion protection in the engine cooling
system.
Please note that it is the owner’s responsibility
to maintain the proper level of protection
against freezing according to the temperatures
occurring in the area where the vehicle is
operated.
NOTE:
Mixing engine coolant (antifreeze) types will
decrease the life of the engine coolant (antifreeze) and will require more frequent engine coolant (antifreeze) changes.
Cooling System Pressure Cap
The cap must be fully tightened to prevent loss
of engine coolant (antifreeze), and to ensure
that engine coolant (antifreeze) will return to the
radiator from the coolant recovery tank.
The cap should be inspected and cleaned if
there is any accumulation of foreign material on
the sealing surfaces.
WARNING!
• The warning words DO NOT OPEN HOT
on the cooling system pressure cap are a
safety precaution. Never add engine coolant (antifreeze) when the engine is overheated. Do not loosen or remove the cap to
cool an overheated engine. Heat causes
pressure to build up in the cooling system.
To prevent scalding or injury, do not remove
the pressure cap while the system is hot or
under pressure.
• Do not use a pressure cap other than the
one specified for your vehicle. Personal
injury or engine damage may result.
Disposal of Used Engine Coolant
Used ethylene glycol-based engine coolant
(antifreeze) is a regulated substance requiring
proper disposal. Check with your local authorities to determine the disposal rules for your
community. To prevent ingestion by animals
and children, do not store ethylene glycolbased engine coolant (antifreeze) in open containers or allow it to remain in puddles on the
ground. If ingested by a child or pet, seek
213
emergency assistance immediately. Clean up
any ground spills immediately.
Coolant Level
The coolant bottle provides a quick visual
method for determining that the engine coolant
(antifreeze) level is adequate. With the engine
idling, and warm to normal operating temperature, the level of the engine coolant (antifreeze)
in the bottle should be between the ranges
indicated on the bottle.
The radiator normally remains completely full,
so there is no need to remove the radiator cap,
unless checking for engine coolant (antifreeze)
freeze point or replacing engine coolant (antifreeze). Advise your service attendant of this.
As long as the engine operating temperature is
satisfactory, the coolant bottle need only be
checked once a month.
When additional engine coolant (antifreeze) is
needed to maintain the proper level, it should
be added to the coolant bottle. Do not overfill.
214
Points To Remember
NOTE:
When the vehicle is stopped after a few
miles (kilometers) of operation, you may
observe vapor coming from the front of the
engine compartment. This is normally a result of moisture from rain, snow, or high
humidity accumulating on the radiator and
being vaporized when the thermostat opens,
allowing hot engine coolant (antifreeze) to
enter the radiator.
If an examination of your engine compartment
shows no evidence of radiator or hose leaks,
the vehicle may be safely driven. The vapor will
soon dissipate.
• If frequent engine coolant (antifreeze) additions are required, or if the level in the
coolant recovery bottle does not drop when
the engine cools, the cooling system should
be pressure tested for leaks.
• Maintain engine coolant (antifreeze) concentration at 50% HOAT engine coolant (antifreeze) (minimum) and distilled water for
proper corrosion protection of your engine,
which contains aluminum components.
• Make sure that the radiator and coolant
recovery bottle hoses are not kinked or obstructed.
• Do not overfill the coolant recovery bottle.
• Keep the front of the radiator clean. If your
vehicle is equipped with air conditioning,
keep the front of the condenser clean.
• Check engine coolant (antifreeze) freeze
point in the radiator and in the coolant recovery bottle. If engine coolant (antifreeze)
needs to be added, contents of coolant
recovery bottle must also be protected
against freezing.
• Do not change the thermostat for Summer or
Winter operation. If replacement is ever necessary, install ONLY the correct type thermostat. Other designs may result in unsatisfactory cooling performance, poor gas mileage,
and increased emissions.
Brake System
In order to assure brake system performance,
all brake system components should be periodically inspected. Refer to the “Maintenance
Schedule” in Section 8 for the proper maintenance intervals.
WARNING!
Riding the brakes can lead to brake failure
and possibly an accident. Driving with your
foot resting or riding on the brake pedal can
result in abnormally high brake temperatures,
excessive lining wear, and possible brake
damage. You would not have your full braking
capacity in an emergency.
Fluid Level Check – Brake Master Cylinder
The fluid level of the master cylinder should be
checked when performing under the hood service, or immediately if the brake system warning lamp indicates system failure.
The brake master cylinder has a translucent
plastic reservoir. On the outboard side of the
reservoir, there is a “MAX” dot and a “MIN” dot.
The fluid level must be kept within these two
dots. Do not add fluid above the MAX mark,
because leakage may occur at the cap.
With disc brakes, the fluid level can be expected to fall as the brake linings wear. However, an unexpected drop in fluid level may be
caused by a leak and a system check should
be conducted.
Refer to “Fluids, Lubricants, and Genuine
Parts” in this section for the correct fluid type.
WARNING!
• Use only manufacturer’s recommended
brake fluid. Refer to “Fluids, Lubricants,
and Genuine Parts” in this section for the
correct fluid type. Using the wrong type of
brake fluid can severely damage your
brake system and/or impair its performance. The proper type of brake fluid for
your vehicle is also labeled on the original
factory installed hydraulic master cylinder
reservoir.
(Continued)
WARNING! (Continued)
• To avoid contamination from foreign matter
or moisture, use only new brake fluid or
fluid that has been in a tightly closed container. Keep the master cylinder reservoir
cap secured at all times. Brake fluid in a
open container absorbs moisture from the
air resulting in a lower boiling point. This
may cause it to boil unexpectedly during
hard or prolonged braking, resulting in sudden brake failure. This could result in a
accident.
• Overfilling the brake fluid reservoir can
result in spilling brake fluid on hot engine
parts, causing the brake fluid to catch fire.
Brake fluid can also damage painted and
vinyl surfaces, care should be taken to
avoid its contact with these surfaces.
• Do not allow petroleum based fluid to contaminate the brake fluid. Brake seal components could be damaged, causing partial
or complete brake failure. This could result
in an accident.
215
Front/Rear Axle Fluid
Front Axle Fluid Level Check
Lubricant should be to the bottom of the oil fill
hole.
Rear Axle Fluid Level Check
Lubricant should be 1/2 inch (1 cm) below the
oil fill hole.
Adding Fluid
Add lubricant only at the fill hole and only to the
level specified above.
Selection of Lubricant
Use only the manufacturer’s recommended
fluid. Refer to “Fluids, Lubricants, and Genuine
Parts” in this section for the correct fluid type.
Transfer Case
Fluid Level Check
Inspect the transfer case for fluid leaks. If a fluid
leak is found, the transfer case fluid level can
be checked by removing the filler plug located
on the back side of the transfer case. The fluid
level should be at the bottom edge of the filler
plug hole when the vehicle is in a level position.
216
Adding Fluid
Add fluid at the filler hole, until it runs out of the
hole, when the vehicle is in a level position.
Drain
First remove fill plug, then remove drain plug.
Recommended tightening torque for drain and
fill plugs is 15 to 25 ft lbs (20 to 34 N·m).
CAUTION!
When installing plugs, do not overtighten. You
could damage them and cause them to leak.
Selection of Lubricant
Use only the manufacturer’s recommended
fluid. Refer to “Fluids, Lubricants, and Genuine
Parts” in this section for the correct fluid type.
Automatic Transmission
Selection of Lubricant
It is important that the proper lubricant is used
in the transmission to assure optimum transmission performance. Use only the manufacturer’s
recommended transmission fluid. Refer to “Fluids, Lubricants, and Genuine Parts” in this
section for the correct fluid type. It is important
that the transmission fluid be maintained at the
prescribed level using the recommended fluid.
CAUTION!
Using a transmission fluid other than the
manufacturer’s recommended fluid may
cause deterioration in transmission shift quality and/or torque converter shudder. Using a
transmission fluid other than the manufacturer’s recommended fluid will result in more
frequent fluid and filter changes. Refer to
“Fluids, Lubricants, and Genuine Parts” in this
section for the correct fluid type.
Special Additives
Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) is an engineered product and its performance may be
impaired by supplemental additives. Therefore,
do not add any fluid additives to the transmission. The only exception to this policy is the use
of special dyes to aid in detecting fluid leaks. In
addition, avoid using transmission sealers as
they may adversely affect seals.
CAUTION!
Do not use chemical flushes in your transmission as the chemicals can damage your transmission components. Such damage is not
covered by the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
Fluid Level Check – 3.7L and 3.0L Diesel
Engine
Regular fluid level checks are not required. For
this reason, the dipstick is omitted.
If you notice fluid loss or shift lever malfunction,
have your authorized dealer check the transmission fluid level.
CAUTION!
• Using a transmission fluid other than the
manufacturer’s recommended fluid may
cause deterioration in transmission shift
quality and/or torque converter shudder.
Using a transmission fluid other than that
recommended by the manufacturer will result in more frequent fluid and filter
changes. Refer to “Fluids, Lubricants, and
Genuine Parts” in this section for the correct fluid type.
• The fluid level is preset at the factory and it
does not require adjustment under normal
operating conditions. If a transmission fluid
leak occurs, visit your authorized dealer
immediately. Severe damage to the transmission may occur. Your authorized dealer
has the proper tools to adjust the fluid level
accurately.
Fluid Level Check – 5.7L Engine
Check the fluid level while the transmission is at
normal operating temperature. This occurs after at least 15 miles (25 km) of driving. At
normal operating temperature the fluid cannot
be held comfortably between the fingertips.
To check the fluid level properly, the following
procedure must be used:
1. Operate the engine at idle speed and normal operating temperature.
2. The vehicle must be on level ground.
3. Fully apply the parking brake, and press the
brake pedal.
4. Place the shift lever momentarily in each
gear position ending with the shift lever in
PARK.
5. Remove the dipstick, wipe it clean and
reinsert it until seated.
6. Remove the dipstick again, and note the
fluid level on both sides. The fluid level should
be between the “HOT” (upper) reference holes
on the dipstick at normal operating temperature. The fluid level is only valid if there is a solid
coating of oil on both sides of the dipstick. If the
fluid is low, add as required into the dipstick
tube. Do not overfill. After adding any quantity
of oil through the oil fill tube, wait a minimum of
217
two minutes for the oil to fully drain into the
transmission before rechecking the fluid level.
NOTE:
If it is necessary to check the transmission
below the operating temperature, the fluid
level should be between the two “COLD”
(lower) holes on the dipstick with the fluid at
approximately 70°F (21°C) (room temperature). If the fluid level is correctly established at room temperature, it should be
between the “HOT” (upper) reference holes
when the transmission reaches 180°F
(82°C). Remember it is best to check the
level at the normal operating temperature.
CAUTION!
Be aware that if the fluid temperature is below
50°F (10°C) it may not register on the dipstick.
Do not add fluid until the temperature is
elevated enough to produce an accurate
reading.
7. Check for leaks. Release parking brake.
To prevent dirt and water from entering the
transmission after checking or replenishing
218
fluid, make certain that the dipstick cap is
properly reseated. It is normal for the dipstick
cap to spring back slightly from its fully seated
position, as long as its seal remains engaged in
the dipstick tube.
Maintenance After Off-Road Driving
After extended operation in mud, sand or water,
or similar dirty conditions, have your brake
discs, brake linings, and axle joints inspected
and cleaned as soon as possible. This will
prevent any abrasive material from causing
excessive wear or unpredictable braking action.
After driving off-road, completely inspect the
underbody of your vehicle. Check the tires,
body structure, steering, suspension and exhaust system for damage. Check threaded
fasteners for looseness, particularly on the
chassis, drivetrain components, steering and
suspension. Retighten, if required, to torque
values specified in the Service Manual. Also
check for accumulations of vegetation or brush
that could become a fire hazard, or conceal
damage to fuel lines, brake hoses, axle pinion
seals, and propeller shafts.
CAUTION!
Under frequent heavy-duty driving conditions,
change all lubricants, and lubricate body components, all driveline joints and steering linkage more often than in normal service, to
prevent excessive wear.
Appearance Care and Protection
from Corrosion
Protection of Body and Paint from
Corrosion
Vehicle body care requirements vary according
to geographic locations and usage. Chemicals
that make roads passable in snow and ice, and
those that are sprayed on trees and road
surfaces during other seasons, are highly corrosive to the metal in your vehicle.
The following maintenance recommendations
will enable you to obtain maximum benefit from
the corrosion resistance built into your vehicle.
What Causes Corrosion?
Corrosion is the result of deterioration or removal of paint and protective coatings from
your vehicle.
The most common causes are:
• Road salt, dirt and moisture accumulation.
• Stone and gravel impact.
• Insects, tree sap and tar.
• Salt in the air near seacoast localities.
• Atmospheric fallout/industrial pollutants.
Washing
• Wash your vehicle regularly. Always wash
your vehicle in the shade using MOPAR姞 Car
Wash or a mild car wash soap, and rinse the
panels completely with clear water.
• If insects, tar, or other similar deposits have
accumulated on your vehicle, use MOPAR姞
Super Kleen Bug and Tar Remover or
equivalent to remove.
• Use a high quality cleaner wax, such as
MOPAR姞 Cleaner Wax to remove road film,
stains, and to protect your paint finish. Take
care never to scratch the paint.
• Avoid using abrasive compounds and power
buffing that may diminish the gloss or thin
out the paint finish.
CAUTION!
• Do not use abrasive or strong cleaning
materials such as steel wool or scouring
powder, which will scratch metal and
painted surfaces.
• Use of power washers exceeding 1,200 psi
(8 274 kPa) can result in damage or removal of paint and decals.
Special Care
• If you drive on salted or dusty roads or if you
drive near the ocean, hose off the undercarriage at least once a month.
• It is important that the drain holes in the lower
edges of the doors, rocker panels and tailgate must be kept clear and open.
• If you detect any stone chips or scratches in
the paint, touch them up immediately. The
cost of such repairs is considered the responsibility of the owner.
• If your vehicle is damaged due to an accident or similar cause which destroys the
paint and protective coating, have your ve-
hicle repaired as soon as possible. The cost
of such repairs is considered the responsibility of the owner.
• If you carry special cargo such as chemicals, fertilizers, de-icer salt, etc., assure that
such materials are well packaged and
sealed.
• If a lot of driving is done on gravel roads,
consider mud or stone shields behind each
wheel.
• Use MOPAR姞 Touch Up Paint or equivalent
on scratches or chips as soon as possible.
Your authorized dealer has touch up paint to
match the color of 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, use MOPAR姞
Wheel Cleaner or select a nonabrasive, nonacidic cleaner. Do not use scouring pads, steel
wool, a bristle brush or metal polishes. Only
MOPAR姞 cleaners or equivalent are recommended. Do not use oven cleaner. Avoid auto219
matic car washes that use acidic solutions or
harsh brushes that may damage the wheels’
protective finish.
Interior Care
Use MOPAR姞 Total Clean or equivalent to clean
fabric upholstery and carpeting.
clean your leather upholstery. Application of a
leather conditioner is not required to maintain
the original condition.
Stain Repel Fabric Cleaning Procedure – If
Equipped
Stain Repel seats may be cleaned in the following manner:
Interior Trim should be cleaned starting with a
damp cloth, a damp cloth with MOPAR姞 Total
Clean or equivalent, then MOPAR姞 Spot & Stain
Remover or equivalent, if absolutely necessary.
Do not use harsh cleaners or Armor All姞. Use
MOPAR姞 Total Clean or equivalent to clean
vinyl upholstery.
WARNING!
Do not use volatile solvents for cleaning purposes. Many are potentially flammable, and if
used in closed areas, they may cause respiratory harm.
Leather Seat Care And Cleaning
MOPAR姞 Total Clean or equivalent is specifically recommended for leather upholstery.
Cleaning Headlights
Your vehicle has plastic headlights that are
lighter and less susceptible to stone breakage
than glass headlights.
• Remove as much of the stain as possible by
blotting with a clean, dry towel.
• Blot any remaining stain with a clean, damp
towel.
• For tough stains, apply MOPAR姞 Total Clean
or a mild soap solution to a clean, damp
cloth and remove the stain. Use a fresh,
damp towel to remove soap residue.
• For grease stains, apply MOPAR姞 MultiPurpose Cleaner or equivalent to a clean,
damp cloth and remove the stain. Use a
fresh, damp towel to remove soap residue.
• Do not use any harsh solvents or any other
form of protectants on Stain Repel products.
220
Your leather upholstery can be best preserved
by regular cleaning with a damp soft cloth.
Small particles of dirt can act as an abrasive
and damage the leather upholstery and should
be removed promptly with a damp cloth. Stubborn soils can be removed easily with a soft
cloth and MOPAR姞 Total Clean or equivalent.
Care should be taken to avoid soaking your
leather upholstery with any liquid. Please do
not use polishes, oils, cleaning fluids, solvents,
detergents, or ammonia-based cleaners to
Plastic is not as scratch-resistant as glass and
therefore different lens cleaning procedures
must be followed.
To minimize the possibility of scratching the
lenses and reducing light output, avoid wiping
with a dry cloth. To remove road dirt, wash with
a mild soap solution followed by rinsing.
Do not use abrasive cleaning components,
solvents, steel wool or other aggressive material to clean the lenses.
Glass Surfaces
All glass surfaces should be cleaned on a
regular basis with MOPAR姞 Glass Cleaner or
any commercial household-type glass cleaner.
Never use an abrasive type cleaner. Use caution when cleaning inside rear windows
equipped with electric defrosters. Do not use
scrapers or other sharp instruments which may
scratch the elements.
When cleaning the rearview mirror, spray
cleaner on the towel or rag that you are using.
Do not spray cleaner directly on the mirror.
Cleaning Plastic Instrument Cluster Lenses
The lenses in front of the instruments in this
vehicle are molded in clear plastic. When
cleaning the lenses, care must be taken to
avoid scratching the plastic.
1. Clean with a wet soft rag. A mild soap
solution may be used, but do not use high
alcohol content or abrasive cleaners. If soap is
used, wipe clean with a clean damp rag.
2. Dry with a soft tissue.
Seat Belt Maintenance
Do not bleach, dye or clean the belts with
chemical solvents or abrasive cleaners. This
will weaken the fabric. Sun damage will also
weaken the fabric.
If the belts need cleaning, use MOPAR姞 Total
Clean, a mild soap solution, or lukewarm water.
Do not remove the belts from the vehicle to
wash them.
Replace the belts if they appear frayed or worn
or if the buckles do not work properly.
Dry with a soft tissue.

If you are leaving your vehicle dormant for more
than 21 days you may want to take steps to
protect your battery. You may:
• Remove fuse #27 in the Intelligent Power
Module labeled Ignition-Off Draw (IOD#1).
• Or, disconnect the negative cable from the
battery.
• Anytime you store your vehicle, or keep it out
of service (i.e. vacation) for two weeks or
more, run the air conditioning system at idle
for about five minutes in the fresh air and
high blower setting. This will ensure adequate system lubrication to minimize the
possibility of compressor damage when the
system is started again.

If a bulb needs to be replaced, visit your
authorized dealer or refer to the applicable
Service Manual.
BULB REPLACEMENT
High Intensity Discharge Headlamps
(HID) — If Equipped
The headlamps are a type of high voltage
discharge tube. High voltage can remain in the
circuit even with the headlight switch off and
the key fob removed. Because of this, you
should not attempt to service a headlamp
bulb yourself. If a headlamp bulb fails, take
your vehicle to an authorized dealer for
service.
WARNING!
A transient high tension occurs at the bulb
sockets of High Intensity Discharge (HID)
headlamps when the headlight switch is
turned ON. It may cause serious electrical
shock or electrocution if not serviced properly.
See your authorized dealer for service.
NOTE:
On vehicles equipped with High Intensity
Discharge Headlamps (HID), when the headlamps are turned on, there is a blue hue to
the lamps. This diminishes and becomes
more white after approximately 10 seconds,
as the system charges.

Use good quality diesel fuel from a reputable supplier in your vehicle. The manufacturer 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 20F or -7C), 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
Maintenance Schedule — Gasoline
Engine
The oil change indicator system will remind you
that it is time to take your vehicle in for scheduled maintenance.
On Electronic Vehicle Information Center
(EVIC) equipped vehicles “Oil Change Required” will be displayed in the EVIC and a
single chime will sound, indicating that an oil
change is necessary.
The oil change indicator message will illuminate approximately 7,000 miles (11 200 km)
after the most recent oil change was performed. Have your vehicle serviced as soon as
234
possible, within 500 miles (800 km). However,
an earlier oil change at 3,000 miles (5 000 km)
may be required if the vehicle is operated
under “Severe Duty Conditions” later in this
section.
NOTE:
• The oil change indicator message will not
monitor the time since the last oil change.
Change your vehicles oil if it has been
6 months since your last oil change even
if the oil change indicator message is
NOT illuminated.
• Change your engine oil more often if you
drive your vehicle off-road for an extended period of time.
• Under no circumstances should oil
change intervals exceed 7,500 miles
(12 000 km) or 6 months, whichever
comes first.
Your authorized dealer will reset the oil change
indicator message after completing the scheduled oil change. If this 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” in Section 4
of this manual.
At Each Stop for Fuel
• Check the engine oil level about 5 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.
• Check the windshield washer solvent and
add if required.
Once a Month
• Check tire pressure and look for unusual
wear or damage.
• Inspect the battery and clean and tighten the
terminals as required.
• Check the fluid levels of the coolant reservoir, brake master cylinder, power steering
and transmission (5.7L only) and add as
needed.
• Check all lights and other electrical items for
correct operation.
Severe Duty Conditions
†† Change the engine oil and engine oil filter at
every 3,000 miles (5 000 km) or 3 months if
using your vehicle under any of the following
severe duty conditions:
• Stop and go driving.
At Each Oil Change
• Driving in dusty conditions.
• Change the engine oil filter.
• Short trips of less than 10 miles (16 km).
• Inspect the brake hoses and lines.
• Trailer towing.
CAUTION!
Failure to perform the required maintenance
items may result in damage to the vehicle.

† This maintenance is recommended by the
manufacturer to the owner, but is not required
to maintain emissions warranty.
WARNING!
You can be badly injured working on or around
a motor vehicle. Do only that service work for
which you have the knowledge and the right
equipment. If you have any doubt about your
ability to perform a service job, take your
vehicle to a competent mechanic.
Maintenance Schedule — Diesel
Engine
To help you have the best driving experience
possible, the manufacturer has identified the
specific vehicle maintenance service intervals
that are required to keep your vehicle operating
properly and safely.
• Check the engine oil level about 15 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.
The manufacturer recommends that these
maintenance intervals be performed at your
selling dealer. The technicians at your dealership know your vehicle best, and have access
to factory trained information, genuine MOPAR姞 parts, and specially designed electronic
and mechanical tools that can help prevent
future costly repairs.
• Check the windshield washer solvent and
add if required.
The maintenance intervals shown should be
performed as indicated in this section.
• Check the fluid levels of the coolant reservoir, brake master cylinder, and power steering and add as needed.
NOTE:
Under no circumstances should oil change
intervals exceed 12,500 miles (20 000 km) or
12 months, whichever comes first.
