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

INTRODUCTION/WELCOME
VEHICLES SOLD IN CANADA
With respect to any vehicles sold in Canada, the name FCA US LLC shall be deemed to be
deleted and the name FCA Canada Inc. used in substitution (excluding legal lines).
WARNING!
• Pedals that cannot move freely can cause loss of vehicle control and increase the
risk of serious personal injury.
• Always make sure that objects cannot fall into the driver foot well while the vehicle
is moving. Objects can become trapped under the brake pedal and accelerator
pedal causing a loss of vehicle control.
• Failure to properly follow floor mat installation or mounting can cause interference
with the brake pedal and accelerator pedal operation causing loss of control of the
vehicle.
• Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle.
Allowing children to be in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a number of
reasons. A child or others could be seriously or fatally injured. Children should be
warned not to touch the parking brake, brake pedal or the shift lever/transmission
gear selector.
• Do not leave the key fob in or near the vehicle, or in a location accessible to
children, and do not leave the ignition of a vehicle equipped with Keyless
Enter-N-Go™ in the ACC or ON/RUN mode. A child could operate power windows,
other controls, or move the vehicle.
• Never use the “PARK” position as a substitute for the parking brake. Always apply
the parking brake fully when parked to guard against vehicle movement and
possible injury or damage.
• Refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details.
USE OF AFTERMARKET PRODUCTS (ELECTRONICS)
The use of aftermarket devices including cell phones, MP3 players, GPS systems, or
chargers may affect the performance of on-board wireless features including Keyless
Enter-N-Go and Remote Start range. If you are experiencing difficulties with any of your
wireless features, try disconnecting your aftermarket devices to see if the situation
improves. If your symptoms persist, please see an authorized dealer.
When it comes to service, remember that your authorized dealer knows your vehicle best,
has factory-trained technicians and genuine MOPAR® parts, and cares about your
satisfaction.

GETTING STARTED
NOTE:
• If “Unlock All Doors 1st Press” is programmed, all doors will unlock when you grab hold
of the front driver's door handle. To select between “Unlock Driver Door 1st Press” and
“Unlock All Doors 1st Press,” refer to the “Electronic Vehicle Information Center
(EVIC)” in your vehicles Owner's Manual on the DVD or “Programmable Features” in

VEHICLE SECURITY ALARM
The Vehicle Security Alarm monitors the vehicle doors for unauthorized entry and the
Keyless Enter-N-Go™ START/STOP button for unauthorized operation. While the Vehicle
Security Alarm is armed, interior switches for door locks and decklid release are disabled.
If something triggers the alarm, the Vehicle Security Alarm will provide the following
audible and visible signals: the horn will pulse, the park lamps and/or turn signals will
flash, and the Vehicle Security Light in the instrument cluster will flash.
To Arm The System:
Lock the door using either the power door lock switch (one door must be open) or the
LOCK button on the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter (doors can be open or
closed), and close all doors.
The Vehicle Security Light in the instrument cluster will flash for 16 seconds. This shows
that the Vehicle Security Alarm is arming. During this period, if a door is opened, the
ignition is cycled to ON/RUN, or the power door locks are unlocked in any manner, the
Vehicle Security Alarm will automatically disarm.
NOTE:
• The Vehicle Security Alarm will not arm if you lock the doors with the manual door lock
plungers.
• Once armed, the Vehicle Security Alarm disables the unlock switch on the driver door
trim panel and passenger door trim panel.
13
GETTING STARTED
To Disarm The System:
Push the Key Fob UNLOCK button or cycle the ignition to the ON/RUN position.
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
previously described 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.
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, and the horn will sound. If this occurs, disarm the Vehicle Security Alarm.

• All seating positions in your vehicle are equipped with lap/shoulder belts.
• Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly.
• Position the lap belt so that it is snug and lies low across your hips, below your
abdomen. To remove slack in the lap belt portion, pull up on the shoulder belt. To loosen
the lap belt if it is too tight, tilt the latch plate and pull on the lap belt. A snug seat belt
reduces the risk of sliding under the seat belt in a collision.
• Position the shoulder belt across the shoulder and chest with minimal, if any slack so
that it is comfortable and not resting on your neck. The retractor will withdraw any slack
in the shoulder belt.
Seat Belt Pretensioner
• The front seat belt system is equipped with pretensioning devices that are designed to
remove slack from the seat belt in the event of a collision.
• A deployed pretensioner or a deployed air bag must be replaced immediately.
14
GETTING STARTED
WARNING!
• In a collision, you and your passengers can suffer much greater injuries if you are
not properly buckled up. You can strike the interior of your vehicle or other
passengers, or you can be thrown out of the vehicle. Always be sure you and others
in your vehicle are buckled up properly.
• A shoulder belt placed behind you will not protect you from injury during a collision.
You are more likely to hit your head in a collision if you do not wear your shoulder
belt. The lap and shoulder belt are meant to be used together.
• A seat belt that is too loose will not protect you properly. In a sudden stop, you could
move too far forward, increasing the possibility of injury. Wear your seat belt snugly.
• A frayed or torn seat belt could rip apart in a collision and leave you with no
protection. Inspect the seat belt system periodically, checking for cuts, frays, or
loose parts. Damaged parts must be replaced immediately. Do not disassemble or
modify the system. Seat belt assemblies must be replaced after a collision.
SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) — AIR BAGS
Air Bag System Components
Your vehicle may be equipped with the following air bag system components:
• Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC)
• Air Bag Warning Light
• Steering Wheel and Column
• Instrument Panel
• Knee Impact Bolsters
• Advanced Front Air Bags
• Supplemental Side Air Bags
• Supplemental Knee Air Bags
• Front and Side Impact Sensors
• Seat Belt Pretentioners
• Seat Belt Buckle Switch
• Seat Track Position Sensors
15
GETTING STARTED
Advanced Front Air Bags
• This vehicle has Advanced Front Air Bags for both the driver and front passenger as a
supplement to the seat belt restraint systems. The Advanced Front Air Bags will not
deploy in every type of collision.
• Advanced Front Air Bags are designed to provide additional protection by supplementing the seat belts. Advanced Front Air Bags are not expected to reduce the risk of injury
in rear, side, or rollover collisions.
• The Advanced Front Air Bags will not deploy in all frontal collisions, including some
that may produce substantial vehicle damage — for example, some pole collisions,
truck underrides, and angle offset collisions.
• On the other hand, depending on the type and location of impact, Advanced Front Air
Bags may deploy in crashes with little vehicle front-end damage but that produce a
severe initial deceleration.
• Because air bag sensors measure vehicle deceleration over time, vehicle speed and
damage by themselves are not good indicators of whether or not an air bag should have
deployed.
• Seat belts are necessary for your protection in all collisions, and also are needed to help
keep you in position, away from an inflating air bag.
• The air bags must be ready to inflate for your protection in a collision. The Occupant
Restraint Controller (ORC) monitors the internal circuits and interconnecting wiring
associated with air bag system electrical components.
• The ORC turns on the Air Bag Warning Light in the instrument panel for approximately
four to eight seconds for a self-check when the ignition switch is first turned to the
ON/RUN position. After the self-check, the Air Bag Warning Light will turn off. If the
ORC detects a malfunction in any part of the system, it turns on the Air Bag Warning
Light, either momentarily or continuously. A single chime will sound to alert you if the
light comes on again after initial startup.
• The ORC monitors the readiness of the electronic parts of the air bag system whenever
the ignition switch is in the START or ON/RUN position. If the ignition switch is in the
OFF position or in the ACC position, the air bag system is not on and the air bags will
not inflate.
• If the Air Bag Warning Light in the instrument panel is not on during the four to eight
seconds when the ignition switch is first turned to the ON/RUN position, stays on, or
turns on while driving, have the vehicle serviced by an authorized service center
immediately.
NOTE:
If the speedometer, tachometer, or any engine related gauges are not working, the
Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) may also be disabled. In this condition the air bags
may not be ready to inflate for your protection. Have an authorized dealer service the air
bag system immediately.
16
GETTING STARTED
• After any collision, the vehicle should be taken to an authorized dealer immediately.
• Do not drive your vehicle after the air bags have deployed. If you are involved in another
collision, the air bags will not be in place to protect you.
• If it is necessary to modify the air bag system for persons with disabilities, contact your
authorized dealer.
• Refer to “Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)” in “Things To Know Before Starting
Your Vehicle” in the Owner's Manual on the DVD for further information.
Supplemental Knee Air Bags
This vehicle is equipped with a Supplemental Driver Knee Air Bag mounted in the
instrument panel below the steering column. The Supplemental Driver Knee Air Bag
provides enhanced protection during a frontal impact by working together with the seat
belts, pretensioners, and Advanced Front Air Bags.
WARNING!
• Relying on the air bags alone could lead to more severe injuries in a collision. The
air bags work with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In some collisions, the air
bags won't deploy at all. Always wear your seat belts even though you have air bags.
• Being too close to the steering wheel or instrument panel during Advanced Front Air
Bag deployment could cause serious injury, including death. Air bags need room to
inflate. Sit back, comfortably extending your arms to reach the steering wheel or
instrument panel.
• No objects should be placed over or near the air bag on the instrument panel or
steering wheel because any such objects could cause harm if the vehicle is in a
collision severe enough to cause the air bag to inflate.
Supplemental Side Air Bags
• This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Air Bags (SABs)
located in the outboard side of the front seats. The SABs are marked with a SRS
AIRBAG or AIRBAG label sewn into the outboard side of the seats.
• This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtains (SABICs)
located above the side windows. The trim covering the SABICs is labeled SRS AIRBAG
or AIRBAG. The SABICs may help reduce the risk of partial or complete ejection of
vehicle occupants through side windows in certain side impact events.
• The SABICs and SABs (“Side Air Bags”) are designed to activate in certain side
impacts and certain rollover events. The Occupant Restraint Controller (“ORC”)
determines whether the deployment of the Side Air Bags in a particular side impact or
rollover event is appropriate, based on the severity and type of collision. Vehicle damage
by itself is not a good indicator of whether or not Side Air Bags should have deployed.
17
GETTING STARTED
WARNING!
• Side Air Bags need room to inflate. Do not lean against the door or window. Sit
upright in the center of the seat.
• Being too close to the Side Air Bags during deployment could cause you to be
severely injured or killed.
• Relying on the Side Air Bags alone could lead to more severe injuries in a collision.
The Side Air Bags work with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In some
collisions, Side Air Bags won’t deploy at all. Always wear your seat belt even though
you have Side Air Bags.
• This vehicle is equipped with left and right Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable
Curtains (SABICs). Do not stack luggage or other cargo up high enough to block the
deployment of the SABICs. The trim covering above the side windows where the
SABIC and its deployment path are located should remain free from any obstructions.
• This vehicle is equipped with SABICs. In order for the SABICs to work as intended,
do not install any accessory items in your vehicle which could alter the roof. Do not
add an aftermarket sunroof to your vehicle. Do not add roof racks that require
permanent attachments (bolts or screws) for installation on the vehicle roof. Do not
drill into the roof of the vehicle for any reason.
• Do not use accessory seat covers or place objects between you and the Side Air
Bags; the performance could be adversely affected and/or objects could be pushed
into you, causing serious injury.
CHILD RESTRAINTS
Children 12 years or younger should ride properly buckled up in a rear seat, if available.
According to crash statistics, children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seats
rather than in the front.
Every state in the United States and all Canadian provinces require that small children
ride in proper restraint systems. This is the law, and you can be prosecuted for ignoring it.
NOTE:
• For additional information, refer to www.Seatcheck.org or call 1-866-SEATCHECK
(1-866-732-8243 ).
• Canadian residents should refer to Transport Canada’s website for additional information: http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/motorvehiclesafety/safedrivers-childsafety-index-53.htm
LATCH – Lower Anchors And Tethers For CHildren
• Your vehicle is equipped with the child restraint anchorage system called LATCH,
which stands for Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren.
• The second row seating positions and the third row center position have lower anchors
and top tether anchors.
18
GETTING STARTED
LATCH System Weight Limit
You may use the LATCH anchorage system until the combined weight of the child and the
child restraint is 65 lbs (29.5 kg). Use the seat belt and tether anchor instead of the
LATCH system once the combined weight is more than 65 lbs (29.5 kg).
Locating LATCH Anchorages
The lower anchorages are round bars that are found at the rear of the seat cushion
where it meets the seatback. They are just visible when you lean into the rear seat to install
the child restraint. You will easily feel them if you run your finger along the gap between
the seatback and seat cushion.
Lower Anchorages
Locating Tether Anchorages
In addition, there are tether strap anchors located behind each rear seatback, near
the floor.
Center Seat LATCH
If a child restraint installed in the center
position blocks the seat belt webbing or
buckle for the outboard position, do not use
that outboard position. If a child seat in the
center position blocks the outboard LATCH
anchors or seat belt, do not install a child
seat in that outboard position.
Tether Anchorages
19
GETTING STARTED
Installing The Child Restraint Using The LATCH Lower Anchors
NOTE:
Never “share” a LATCH anchorage with two or more child restraints.
1. Loosen the adjusters on the lower straps and on the tether strap of the child seat so that
you can more easily attach the hooks or connectors to the vehicle anchorages.
2. Attach the lower hooks or connectors of the child restraint to the lower anchorages in
the selected seating position.
3. If the child restraint has a tether strap, connect it to the top tether anchorage. See
below for directions to attach a tether anchor.
4. Tighten all of the straps as you push the child restraint rearward and downward into the
seat. Remove slack in the straps according to the child restraint manufacturer’s
instructions.
5. Test that the child restraint is installed tightly by pulling back and forth on the child
seat at the belt path. It should not move more than 1 inch (25.4 mm) in any direction.
Installing The Child Restraint Using The Vehicle Seat Belts
Except for the center position in the third row, all of the seat belts in the passenger seating
positions are equipped with a Switchable Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR). The third row
center position is equipped with a cinching latch plate. Both types of seat belts are designed
to keep the lap portion of the seat belt tight around the child restraint. Any seat belt system
will loosen with time, so check the belt occasionally, and pull it tight if necessary.
Tether Anchorage Weight Limit
Always use the tether anchor when using the seat belt to install a forward facing child
restraint, up to the recommended weight limit of the child restraint.
To Install A Child Seat Using An ALR:
1. Pull enough of the seat belt webbing from the retractor to pass it through the belt path
of the child restraint. Do not twist the belt webbing in the belt path.
2. Slide the latch plate into the buckle until you hear a “click.”
3. Pull on the webbing to make the lap portion tight against the child seat.
4. To lock the seat belt, pull down on the shoulder part of the belt until you have pulled
all the seat belt webbing out of the retractor. Then, allow the webbing to retract back
into the retractor. As the webbing retracts, you will hear a clicking sound. This means
the seat belt is now in the Automatic Locking mode.
5. Try to pull the webbing out of the retractor. If it is locked, you should not be able to pull
out any webbing. If the retractor is not locked, repeat the last step.
6. Finally, pull up on any extra webbing to tighten the lap portion around the child restraint
while you push the child restraint rearward and downward into the vehicle seat.
20
GETTING STARTED
7. If the child restraint has a top tether strap and the seating position has a top tether
anchorage, connect the tether strap to the anchorage and tighten the tether strap. See
below for directions to attach a tether anchor.
8. Test that the child restraint is installed tightly by pulling back and forth on the child
seat at the belt path. It should not move more than 1 inch (25.4 mm) in any direction.
To Install A Child Seat Using A Cinching Latch Plate:
1. Place the child seat in the center of the seating position.
2. Next, pull enough of the seat belt webbing from the retractor to pass it through the belt
path of the child restraint. Do not twist the belt webbing in the belt path.
3. Slide the latch plate into the buckle until you hear a “click.”
4. Finally, pull up on any excess webbing to tighten the lap portion around the child
restraint while you push the child restraint rearward and downward into the vehicle
seat.
5. If the child restraint has a top tether strap and the seating position has a top tether
anchorage, connect the tether strap to the anchorage and tighten the tether strap. See
below for directions to attach a tether anchor.
6. Test that the child restraint is installed tightly by pulling back and forth on the child
seat at the belt path. It should not move more than 1 inch (25.4 mm) in any direction.
Installing The Top Tether Strap (With Either Lower Anchors Or Vehicle Seat
Belt):
When installing a forward-facing child restraint, always secure the top tether strap, up to
the tether anchor weight limit, whether the child restraint is installed with the lower
anchors or the vehicle seat belt.
21
GETTING STARTED
Tether Strap Installation
1. Route the tether strap to provide the most direct path for the strap between the anchor
and the child seat.
2. If your vehicle is equipped with adjustable rear head restraints, raise the head
restraint, and where possible, route the tether strap under the head restraint and
between the two posts. If not possible, lower the head restraint and pass the tether
strap around the outboard side of the head restraint.
3. Attach the tether strap hook of the child restraint to the top tether anchorage and
remove slack in the tether strap according to the child restraint manufacturer’s
instructions.

WARNING!
• In a collision, an unrestrained child, even a tiny baby, can become a projectile
inside the vehicle. The force required to hold even an infant on your lap could
become so great that you could not hold the child, no matter how strong you are.
The child and others could be severely injured or killed. Any child riding in your
vehicle should be in a proper restraint for the child's size.
• Rearward-facing child seats must never be used in the front seat of a vehicle with
a front passenger air bag. An air bag deployment could cause severe injury or death
to infants in this position.
• Only use a rearward-facing child restraint in a vehicle with a rear seat.
• Improper installation of a child restraint to the LATCH anchorages can lead to failure of
an infant or child restraint. The child could be severely injured or killed. Follow the
manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or child restraint.
• An incorrectly anchored tether strap could lead to increased head motion and
possible injury to the child. Use only the anchor positions directly behind the child
seat to secure a child restraint top tether strap.
• If your vehicle is equipped with a split rear seat, make sure the tether strap does not
slip into the opening between the seatbacks as you remove slack in the strap.
HEAD RESTRAINTS
Head restraints are designed to reduce the risk of injury by restricting head movement in
the event of a rear impact. Head restraints should be adjusted so that the top of the head
restraint is located above the top of your ear.
WARNING!
The head restraints for all occupants must be properly installed and adjusted prior to
operating the vehicle or occupying a seat. Head restraints should never be adjusted
while the vehicle is in motion. Driving a vehicle with the head restraints improperly
adjusted or removed could cause serious injury or death in the event of a collision.
Active Head Restraints — Front Seats
Active Head Restraints are passive, deployable components, and vehicles with this
equipment cannot be readily identified by any markings, only through visual inspection of
the head restraint. The Active Head Restraints (AHR) will be split in two halves, with the
front half being soft foam and trim, the back half being decorative plastic.
When AHRs deploy during a rear impact, the front half of the head restraint extends
forward to minimize the gap between the back of the occupant’s head and the AHR. This
system is designed to help prevent or reduce the extent of injuries to the driver and front
passenger in certain types of rear impacts. Refer to “Occupant Restraints” in “Things To
Know Before Starting” in your Owner’s Manual on the DVD for further information.
23
GETTING STARTED
To raise the head restraint, pull upward on the head restraint. To lower the head restraint,
push the adjustment button, located at the base of the head restraint, and push downward
on the head restraint.
For comfort the Active Head Restraints can be tilted forward and rearward. To tilt the head
restraint closer to the back of your head, pull forward on the bottom of the head restraint.
Push rearward on the bottom of the head restraint to move the head restraint away from
your head.
NOTE:
• The head restraints should only be removed by qualified technicians, for service
purposes only. If either of the head restraints require removal, see your authorized
dealer.
• In the event of deployment of an Active Head Restraint, refer to “Occupant Restraints”
in “Things To Know Before Starting” in your Owner’s Manual on the DVD for further
information.
WARNING!
• Do not place items over the top of the Active Head Restraint, such as coats, seat
covers or portable DVD players. These items may interfere with the operation of the
Active Head Restraint in the event of a collision and could result in serious injury or
death.
• Active Head Restraints may be deployed if they are struck by an object such as a
hand, foot or loose cargo. To avoid accidental deployment of the Active Head
Restraint ensure that all cargo is secured, as loose cargo could contact the Active
Head Restraint during sudden stops. Failure to follow this warning could cause
personal injury if the Active Head Restraint is deployed.
Head Restraints — Second Row Quad Seats
To raise the head restraint, pull upward on the head restraint. To lower the head restraint,
push the adjustment button, located at the base of the head restraint, and push downward

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

– Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) Indicator Light
This light informs you of a problem with the system.
If a problem is detected, the light will come on while the engine is running. Cycle the
ignition when the vehicle has completely stopped and the shift lever is placed in the PARK
position; the light should turn off.
If the light remains lit with the engine running, your vehicle will usually be drivable.
However, see an authorized dealer immediately. If the light is flashing when the engine is
running, immediate service is required, and you may experience reduced performance, an
elevated/rough idle or engine stall, and your vehicle may require towing.
– Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Light
Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly when cold and
inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the
vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a different size
than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should
determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires).
As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a tire pressure
monitoring system (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more
of your tires is significantly under-inflated. Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale
illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible and inflate them to
the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to
overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire
tread life and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability.
IF THE LIGHT STARTS FLASHING INDICATING A LOW TIRE PRESSURE, ADJUST THE
AIR PRESSURE IN THE LOW TIRE TO THE AIR PRESSURE SHOWN ON THE VEHICLE
PLACARD OR TIRE INFLATION PRESSURE LABEL LOCATED ON THE DRIVER'S DOOR.
NOTE:
AFTER INFLATION, THE VEHICLE MAY NEED TO BE DRIVEN FOR 20 MINUTES
BEFORE THE FLASHING LIGHT WILL TURN OFF.
Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the
driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not
reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.
Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction indicator to indicate when
the system is not operating properly. The TPMS malfunction indicator is combined with
the low tire pressure telltale.
When the system detects a malfunction, the telltale will flash for approximately one
minute and then remain continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon
subsequent vehicle start-ups as long as the malfunction exists. When the malfunction
indicator is illuminated, the system may not be able to detect or signal low tire pressure
as intended. TPMS malfunctions may occur for a variety of reasons, including the
installation of replacement or alternate tires or wheels on the vehicle that prevent the
78
W H AT T O D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
TPMS from functioning properly. Always check the TPMS malfunction telltale after
replacing one or more tires or wheels on your vehicle to ensure that the replacement or
alternate tires and wheels allow the TPMS to continue to function properly.
NOTE:
Tire pressures change by approximately 1 psi (7 kPa) per 12° F (7° C) of air temperature
change. Keep this in mind when checking tire pressure inside a garage, especially in the
Winter. Example: If garage temperature is 68°F (20°C), and the outside temperature is
32°F (0°C), then the cold tire inflation pressure should be increased by 3 psi (21 kPa),
which equals 1 psi (7 kPa) for every 12°F (7°C) for this outside temperature condition.
CAUTION!
The TPMS has been optimized for the original equipment tires and wheels. TPMS
pressures and warning have been established for the tire size equipped on your vehicle.
Undesirable system operation or sensor damage may result when using replacement
equipment that is not of the same size, type, and/or style. Aftermarket wheels can
cause sensor damage. Do not use tire sealant from a can, or balance beads if your
vehicle is equipped with a TPMS, as damage to the sensors may result.
- Engine Temperature Warning Light
• This light warns of an overheated engine condition.
• If the light turns on or flashes continuously while driving, safely pull over and stop the
vehicle. If the A/C system is on, turn it off. Also, shift the transmission into NEUTRAL
and idle the vehicle. If the temperature reading does not return to normal, turn the
engine off immediately and call for service.
• We recommend that you do not operate the vehicle or engine damage will occur. Have
the vehicle serviced immediately.
WARNING!
A hot engine cooling system is dangerous. You or others could be badly burned by
steam or boiling coolant.
– Seat Belt Reminder Light
When the ignition switch is first turned to the ON/RUN position, this light will turn on for
four to eight seconds as a bulb check. During the bulb check, if the driver's seat belt is
unbuckled, a chime will sound. After the bulb check or when driving, if the driver or front
passenger seat belt remains unbuckled, the Seat Belt Indicator Light will flash or remain
on continuously. Refer to “Seat Belt Systems” in “Things To Know Before Starting” in your
Owner’s Manual on the DVD for further information.
79
W H AT T O D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
– Brake Warning Light
This light monitors various brake functions, including brake fluid level and parking brake
application. If the brake light turns on, it may indicate that the parking brake is applied,
that the brake fluid level is low, or that there is a problem with the anti-lock brake system
reservoir.
If the light remains on when the parking brake has been disengaged, and the fluid level is
at the full mark on the master cylinder reservoir, it indicates a possible brake hydraulic
system malfunction or that a problem with the Brake Booster has been detected by the
Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)/Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system. In this case, the
light will remain on until the condition has been corrected. If the problem is related to the
brake booster, the ABS pump will run when applying the brake, and a brake pedal
pulsation may be felt during each stop.
The dual brake system provides a reserve braking capacity in the event of a failure to a
portion of the hydraulic system. A leak in either half of the dual brake system is indicated
by the Brake Warning Light, which will turn on when the brake fluid level in the master
cylinder has dropped below a specified level. The light will remain on until the cause is
corrected.
Vehicles equipped with the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) are also equipped with
Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD). In the event of an EBD failure, the Brake
Warning Light will turn on along with the ABS Light. Immediate repair to the ABS system
is required.
Operation of the Brake Warning Light can be checked by turning the ignition switch from
the OFF position to the ON/RUN position. The light should illuminate for approximately
two seconds. The light should then turn off unless the parking brake is applied or a brake
fault is detected. If the light does not illuminate, have the light inspected by an authorized
dealer.
The light also will turn on when the parking brake is applied with the ignition switch in the
ON/RUN position.
NOTE:
This light shows only that the parking brake is applied. It does not show the degree of
brake application.
WARNING!
Driving a vehicle with the red brake light on is dangerous. Part of the brake system may
have failed. It will take longer to stop the vehicle. You could have a collision. Have the
vehicle checked immediately.

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

Tire Service Kit Usage Precautions
• Replace the Tire Service Kit Sealant Bottle (1) and Sealant Hose (6) prior to the
expiration date (printed on the bottle label) to assure optimum operation of the system.
Refer to “Sealing A Tire With Tire Service Kit” section (F) “Sealant Bottle and Hose
Replacement.”
• The Sealant Bottle (1) and Sealant Hose (6) are a one tire application use. After each
use, always replace these components immediately at an authorized dealer.
• When the Tire Service Kit sealant is in a liquid form, clean water, and a damp cloth will
remove the material from the vehicle or tire and wheel components. Once the sealant
dries, it can easily be peeled off and properly discarded.
• For optimum performance, make sure the valve stem on the wheel is free of debris
before connecting the Tire Service Kit.
• You can use the Tire Service Kit air pump to inflate bicycle tires. The kit also comes with
two needles, located in the Accessory Storage Compartment (on the bottom of the air
pump) for inflating sport balls, rafts, or similar inflatable items. However, use only the
Air Pump Hose (7) and make sure the Mode Select Knob (5) is in the Air Mode when
inflating such items to avoid injecting sealant into them. The Tire Service Kit Sealant is
only intended to seal punctures less than 1/4 inch (6 mm) diameter in the tread of your
vehicle.
• Do not lift or carry the Tire Service Kit by the hoses.
Sealing A Tire With Tire Service Kit
(A) Whenever You Stop To Use Tire Service Kit:
1. Pull over to a safe location and turn on the vehicle’s Hazard Warning flashers.
2. Verify that the valve stem (on the wheel with the deflated tire) is in a position that is
near to the ground. This will allow the Tire Service Kit Hoses (6) and (7) to reach the
valve stem and keep the Tire Service Kit flat on the ground. This will provide the best
positioning of the kit when injecting the sealant into the deflated tire and running the
air pump. Move the vehicle as necessary to place the valve stem in this position before
proceeding.
3. Place the transmission in PARK (auto transmission) or in Gear (manual transmission)
and cycle the ignition to the OFF position.
4. Set the parking brake.
(B) Setting Up To Use Tire Service Kit:
1. Turn the Mode Select Knob (5) to the Sealant Mode position.
2. Uncoil the Sealant Hose (6) and then remove the cap from the fitting at the end of the
hose.
3. Place the Tire Service Kit flat on the ground next to the deflated tire.
4. Remove the cap from the valve stem and then screw the fitting at the end of the
Sealant Hose (6) onto the valve stem.
85
W H AT T O D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
5. Uncoil the Power Plug (8) and insert the plug into the vehicle’s 12 Volt power outlet.
6. Do not remove foreign objects (e.g., screws or nails) from the tire.
(C) Injecting Tire Service Kit Sealant Into The Deflated Tire:
Always start the engine before turning ON the Tire Service Kit.
NOTE:
Manual transmission vehicles must have the parking brake engaged and the shift lever in
NEUTRAL.
After pushing the Power Button (4), the sealant (white fluid) will flow from the Sealant
Bottle (1) through the Sealant Hose (6) and into the tire.

3. The Sealant Bottle (1) may be empty due to previous use. Call for assistance.
NOTE:
If the Mode Select Knob (5) is on Air Mode and the pump is operating, air will dispense
from the Air Pump Hose (7) only, not the Sealant Hose (6).
If the sealant (white fluid) does flow through the Sealant Hose (6):
1. Continue to operate the pump until sealant is no longer flowing through the hose
(typically takes 30 - 70 seconds). As the sealant flows through the Sealant Hose (6),
the Pressure Gauge (3) can read as high as 70 psi (4.8 Bar). The Pressure Gauge (3)
will decrease quickly from approximately 70 psi (4.8 Bar) to the actual tire pressure
when the Sealant Bottle (1) is empty.
2. The pump will start to inject air into the tire immediately after the Sealant Bottle (1)
is empty. Continue to operate the pump and inflate the tire to the pressure indicated
on the tire pressure label on the driver-side latch pillar (recommended pressure).
Check the tire pressure by looking at the Pressure Gauge (3).
If the tire does not inflate to at least 26 psi (1.8 Bar) pressure within 15 minutes:
The tire is too badly damaged. Do not attempt to drive the vehicle further. Call for
assistance.

continuing.
1. Turn the Mode Select Knob (5) to the Air Mode position.
2. Uncoil the Air Pump Hose (7) (black in color) and screw the fitting at the end of hose
(7) onto the valve stem.
3. Uncoil the power plug and insert the plug into the vehicles 12 Volt power outlet.
4. Check the pressure in the tire by reading the Pressure Gauge (3).
If tire pressure is less than 19 psi (1.3 Bar), the tire is too badly damaged. Do not attempt
to drive the vehicle further. Call for assistance.
If the tire pressure is 19 psi (1.3 Bar) or higher:
1. Push the Power Button (4) to turn on Tire Service Kit and inflate the tire to the pressure
indicated on the tire and loading information label on the driver-side door opening.

WARNING!
• Do not attempt to change a tire on the side of the vehicle close to moving traffic.
Pull far enough off the road to avoid the danger of being hit when operating the jack
or changing the wheel.
• Being under a jacked-up vehicle is dangerous. The vehicle could slip off the jack
and fall on you. You could be crushed. Never put any part of your body under a
vehicle that is on a jack. If you need to get under a raised vehicle, take it to a service
center where it can be raised on a lift.
• Never start or run the engine while the vehicle is on a jack.
• 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.
• Carefully follow these tire changing warnings to help prevent personal injury or
damage to your vehicle:
• Always park on a firm, level surface as far from the edge of the roadway as possible
before raising the vehicle.
• Turn on the Hazard Warning flasher.
• Block the wheel diagonally opposite the wheel to be raised.
• Set the parking brake firmly and set an automatic transmission in PARK; a manual
transmission in REVERSE.
• Do not let anyone sit in the vehicle when it is on a jack.
• Do not get under the vehicle when it is on a jack.
• Only use the jack in the positions indicated and for lifting this vehicle during a tire
change.
• If working on or near a roadway, be extremely careful of motor traffic.
• To assure that spare tires, flat or inflated, are securely stowed, spares must be
stowed with the valve stem facing the ground.
• Raising the vehicle higher than necessary can make the vehicle less stable. It could
slip off the jack and hurt someone near it. Raise the vehicle only enough to remove
the tire.
• To avoid the risk of forcing the vehicle off the jack, do not tighten the wheel nuts
fully until the vehicle has been lowered. Failure to follow this warning may result in
personal injury.
• 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. Have the deflated (flat) tire repaired or replaced immediately.
• Verify that both retainer tabs of the wheel spacer have been properly extended
through the center of the wheel and spare tire/cover assembly. Failure to properly
engage both retainer tabs could result in loss of the spare tire and cover assembly,
which will cause vehicle damage and may cause loss of vehicle control.

JUMP-STARTING
If your vehicle has a discharged battery it can be jump-started using a set of jumper cables
and a battery in another vehicle or by using a portable battery booster pack.
Jump-starting can be dangerous if done improperly so please follow the procedures in this
section carefully.
NOTE:
When using a portable battery booster pack
follow the manufacturer’s operating instructions and precautions.
Preparations For Jump-Start
• The battery in your vehicle is located on
the left side of the engine compartment.
• Set the parking brake, shift the automatic transmission into PARK and turn
the ignition to LOCK.
• Turn off the heater, radio, and all unnecessary electrical accessories.
Positive Battery Post
• If using another vehicle to jump-start the
battery, park the vehicle within the
jumper cables reach, set the parking brake and make sure the ignition is OFF.
Jump-Starting Procedure
1. Connect the positive (+) end of the jumper cable to the positive (+) post of the vehicle
with the discharged battery.
2. Connect the opposite end of the positive (+) jumper cable to the positive (+) post of the
booster battery.
3. Connect the negative (-) end of the jumper cable to the negative (-) post of the booster
battery.
4. Connect the opposite end of the negative (-) jumper cable to a good engine ground
(exposed metal part of the discharged vehicle’s engine) away from the battery and the
fuel injection system.
5. Start the engine in the vehicle that has the booster battery, let the engine idle a few
minutes, and then start the engine in the vehicle with the discharged battery.
Once the engine is started, remove the jumper cables in the reverse sequence:
1. Disconnect the negative (-) end of the jumper cable from the engine ground of the
vehicle with the discharged battery.
2. Disconnect the opposite end of the negative (-) jumper cable from the negative (-) post
of the booster battery.
102
W H AT T O D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
3. Disconnect the positive (+) end of the jumper cable from the positive (+) post of the
booster battery.
4. Disconnect the opposite end of the positive (+) jumper cable from the positive (+) post
of the vehicle with the discharged battery.
NOTE:
If frequent jump-starting is required to start your vehicle you should have the battery and
charging system inspected at your authorized dealer.
CAUTION!
• Do not use a portable battery booster pack or any other booster source with a system
voltage greater than 12 Volts or damage to the battery, starter motor, alternator or
electrical system may occur.
• Failure to follow these procedures could result in damage to the charging system of
the booster vehicle or the discharged vehicle.
• Accessories that can be plugged into the vehicle power outlets draw power from the
vehicle’s battery, even when not in use (e.g., cellular phones, etc.). Eventually, if
plugged in long enough, the vehicle’s battery discharges sufficiently to degrade
battery life and/or prevent the engine from starting.
WARNING!
• When temperatures are below the freezing point, electrolyte in a discharged battery
may freeze. Do not attempt jump-starting because the battery could rupture or
explode and cause personal injury. Battery temperature must be brought above the
freezing point before attempting a jump-start.
• Take care to avoid the radiator cooling fan whenever the hood is raised. It can start
anytime the ignition switch is on. You can be injured by moving fan blades.
• Remove any metal jewelry, such as watch bands or bracelets, that might make an
inadvertent electrical contact. You could be severely injured.
• Batteries contain sulfuric acid that can burn your skin or eyes and generate
hydrogen gas which is flammable and explosive. Keep open flames or sparks away
from the battery.
• Do not allow vehicles to touch each other as this could establish a ground
connection and personal injury could result.
• Failure to follow this procedure could result in personal injury or property damage
due to battery explosion.
• Do not connect the cable to the negative post (-) of the discharged battery. The
resulting electrical spark could cause the battery to explode and could result in
personal injury.

BEST METHOD
FREEING A STUCK VEHICLE
If your vehicle becomes stuck in mud, sand or snow, it can often be moved using a rocking
motion. Turn your steering wheel right and left to clear the area around the front wheels.
Then shift back and forth between DRIVE and REVERSE while gently pushing the
accelerator. Use the least amount of accelerator pedal pressure that will maintain the
rocking motion, without spinning the wheels or racing the engine.
NOTE:
Push the "ESC Off" switch, to place the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system in
"Partial Off" mode before rocking the vehicle. Once the vehicle has been freed, push the
"ESC Off" switch again to restore "ESC On" mode.
CAUTION!
• When “rocking” a stuck vehicle by shifting between REVERSE and DRIVE, do not
spin the wheels faster than 15 mph (24 km/h), or drivetrain damage may result.
• Revving the engine or spinning the wheels too fast may lead to transmission
overheating and failure. It can also damage the tires. Do not spin the wheels above
30 mph (48 km/h) while in gear (no transmission shifting occurring).
WARNING!
Fast spinning tires can be dangerous. Forces generated by excessive wheel speeds may
cause tire damage or failure. A tire could explode and injure someone. Do not spin your
vehicle's wheels faster than 30 mph (48 km/h) when you are stuck. Do not let anyone
near a spinning wheel, no matter what the speed.

EVENT DATA RECORDER (EDR)
This vehicle is equipped with an Event Data Recorder (EDR). The main purpose of an EDR
is to record, in certain crash or near crash-like situations, such as an air bag deployment
or hitting a road obstacle, data that will assist in understanding how a vehicle’s systems
performed. The EDR is designed to record data related to vehicle dynamics and safety
systems for a short period of time, typically 30 seconds or less. The EDR in this vehicle is
designed to record such data as:
• How various systems in your vehicle were operating.
• Whether or not the driver and passenger safety belts were buckled/fastened.
• How far (if at all) the driver was depressing the accelerator and/or brake pedal.
• How fast the vehicle was traveling.
These data can help provide a better understanding of the circumstances in which crashes
and injuries occur.
NOTE:
EDR data is recorded by your vehicle only if a non-trivial crash situation occurs; no data is
recorded by the EDR under normal driving conditions and no personal data (e.g. name,
gender, age, and crash location) is recorded. However, other parties, such as law
enforcement, could combine the EDR data with the type of personally identifying data
routinely acquired during a crash investigation.
To read data recorded by an EDR, special equipment is required, and access to the vehicle
or the EDR is needed. In addition to the vehicle manufacturer, other parties such as law
enforcement, that have the special equipment, can read the information if they have
access to the vehicle or the EDR.

MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
For information on the maintenance procedures for your vehicle, please refer to “Maintenance Procedures” in “Maintaining Your Vehicle” in your Owner’s Manual or applicable
supplement on the DVD for further details.
MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE
Your vehicle is equipped with an automatic oil change indicator system. The oil change
indicator system will remind you that it is time to take your vehicle in for scheduled
maintenance.
Based on engine operation conditions, the oil change indicator message will illuminate.
This means that service is required for your vehicle. Operating conditions such as frequent
short-trips, trailer tow, extremely hot or cold ambient temperatures, and E85 fuel usage
will influence when the “Oil Change Required” message is displayed. Severe Operating
Conditions can cause the change oil message to illuminate as early as 3,500 miles
(5,600 km) since last reset. Have your vehicle serviced as soon as possible, within the
next 500 miles (805 km).
Your authorized dealer will reset the oil change indicator message after completing the
scheduled oil change. If a scheduled oil change is performed by someone other than your
authorized dealer, the message can be reset by referring to the steps described under
“Instrument Cluster Warning Lights” in “What To Do In Emergencies” in this guide or
“Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)” in “Understanding Your Instrument
Panel” in your Owner’s Manual on the DVD for further information.
NOTE:
Under no circumstances should oil change intervals exceed 10,000 miles (16,000 km),
twelve months or 350 hours of engine run time, whichever comes first. The 350 hours of
engine run or idle time is generally only a concern for fleet customers.
Severe Duty All Models
Change Engine Oil at 4,000 miles (6,500 km) if the vehicle is operated in a dusty and off
road environment or is operated predominately at idle or only very low engine RPM’s. This
type of vehicle use is considered Severe Duty.

center contains cartridge fuses and mini-fuses. A label that identifies each component
may be printed or embossed on the inside of the cover.
CAUTION!
• When installing the Totally Integrated Power Module cover, it is important to ensure the
cover is properly positioned and fully latched. Failure to do so may allow water to get into
the Integrated Power Module, and possibly result in a electrical system failure.
• When replacing a blown fuse, it is important to use only a fuse having the correct
amperage rating. The use of a fuse with a rating other than indicated may result in
a dangerous electrical system overload. If a properly rated fuse continues to blow,
it indicates a problem in the circuit that must be corrected.
The numbers inside the TIPM cover correspond to the following table.

MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
TIRE PRESSURES
Check the inflation pressure of each tire, including the spare tire (if equipped), at least
monthly and inflate to the recommended pressure for your vehicle.
The tire pressures recommended for your vehicle are found on the “Tire and Loading
Information” label located on the driver’s side door opening.
NOTE:
Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD for
more information regarding tire warnings
and instructions.
Tire And Loading Information Location
(Example)
WARNING!
• Overloading of your tires is dangerous. Overloading can cause tire failure, affect
vehicle handling, and increase your stopping distance. Use tires of the recommended load capacity for your vehicle. Never overload them.
• Improperly inflated tires are dangerous and can cause collisions. Under-inflation
increases tire flexing and can result in over-heating and tire failure. Over-inflation
reduces a tire’s ability to cushion shock. Objects on the road and chuck holes can
cause damage that results in tire failure. Unequal tire pressures can cause steering
problems. You could lose control of your vehicle. Over-inflated or under-inflated
tires can affect vehicle handling and can fail suddenly, resulting in loss of vehicle
control. Always drive with each tire inflated to the recommended cold tire inflation
pressure.
120
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
SPARE TIRES — IF EQUIPPED
NOTE:
For vehicles equipped with Tire Service Kit instead of a spare tire, please refer to “Tire
Service Kit” in “What To Do In Emergencies” on your DVD for further information.
CAUTION!
Because of the reduced ground clearance, do not take your vehicle through an
automatic car wash with a compact or limited-use temporary spare installed. Damage
to the vehicle may result.
Spare Tire Matching Original Equipped Tire And Wheel — If Equipped
Your vehicle may be equipped with a spare tire and wheel equivalent in look and function
to the original equipment tire and wheel found on the front or rear axle of your vehicle. This
spare tire may be used in the tire rotation for your vehicle. If your vehicle has this option,
refer to an authorized tire dealer for the recommended tire rotation pattern.
Compact Spare Tire — If Equipped
The compact spare is for temporary emergency use only. You can identify if your vehicle
is equipped with a compact spare by looking at the spare tire description on the Tire and
Loading Information Placard located on the driver’s side door opening or on the sidewall
of the tire. Compact spare tire descriptions begin with the letter “T” or “S” preceding the
size designation. Example: T145/80D18 103M.
T, S = Temporary Spare Tire
Since this tire has limited tread life, the original equipment tire should be repaired (or
replaced) and reinstalled on your vehicle at the first opportunity.
Do not install a wheel cover or attempt to mount a conventional tire on the compact spare
wheel, since the wheel is designed specifically for the compact spare tire. Do not install
more than one compact spare tire and wheel on the vehicle at any given time.
WARNING!
Compact spares are for temporary emergency use only. With these spares, do not drive
more than 50 mph (80 km/h). Temporary use spares have limited tread life. When the
tread is worn to the tread wear indicators, the temporary use spare tire needs to be
replaced. Be sure to follow the warnings, which apply to your spare. Failure to do so
could result in spare tire failure and loss of vehicle control.
121
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
Full Size Spare — If Equipped
The full size spare is for temporary emergency use only. This tire may look like the
originally equipped tire on the front or rear axle of your vehicle, but it is not. This spare tire
may have limited tread life. When the tread is worn to the tread wear indicators, the
temporary use full size spare tire needs to be replaced. Since it is not the same as your
original equipment tire, replace (or repair) the original equipment tire and reinstall on the
vehicle at the first opportunity.
Limited-Use Spare — If Equipped
The limited-use spare tire is for temporary emergency use only. This tire is identified by a
label located on the limited-use spare wheel. This label contains the driving limitations for
this spare. This tire may look like the original equipped tire on the front or rear axle of your
vehicle, but it is not. Installation of this limited-use spare tire affects vehicle handling.
Since it is not the same as your original equipment tire, replace (or repair) the original
equipment tire and reinstall on the vehicle at the first opportunity.
WARNING!
Limited-use spares are for emergency use only. Installation of this limited-use spare
tire affects vehicle handling. With this tire, do not drive more than the speed listed on
the limit-use spare wheel. Keep inflated to the cold tire inflation pressures listed on
your Tire and Loading Information Placard located on the driver’s side B-Pillar or the
rear edge of the driver’s side door. Replace (or repair) the original equipment tire at the
first opportunity and reinstall it on your vehicle. Failure to do so could result in loss of
vehicle control.
122
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
ADDING FUEL
Fuel Filler Cap (Gas Cap)
The gas cap is located behind the fuel filler door on the left side of the vehicle. If the gas
cap is lost or damaged, be sure the replacement cap is for use with this vehicle.
When the fuel nozzle “clicks” or shuts off,
the fuel tank is full.
Tighten the gas cap until you hear a “clicking” sound. This is an indication that the
gas cap is properly tightened. If not properly
tightened, the MIL (Malfunction Indicator
Light) may come on.
NOTE:
The driver’s side sliding door cannot be
opened while the fuel door is open.
Fuel Filler
CAUTION!
• Damage to the fuel system or emissions control system could result from using an
improper gas cap. A poorly fitting cap could let impurities into the fuel system and
may cause the MIL to turn on, due to fuel vapors escaping from the system.
• To avoid fuel spillage and overfilling, do not “top off” the fuel tank after filling.
WARNING!
• Never have any smoking materials lit in or near the vehicle when the gas cap is
removed or the tank filled.
• Never add fuel when the engine is running. This is in violation of most state and
federal fire regulations and/or local bylaws, and will cause the MIL to turn on.
• A fire may result if gasoline is pumped into a portable container that is inside of a vehicle.
You could be burned. Always place gas containers on the ground while filling.
E-85 FLEXIBLE FUEL — (3.6L ENGINE ONLY)
Refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details.
CAUTION!
Only vehicles with the E-85 fuel filler door label or a yellow gas cap can operate on E-85.
123
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
WHEEL AND WHEEL TRIM CARE
All wheels and wheel trim, especially aluminum and chrome plated wheels, should be
cleaned regularly with a mild soap and water to prevent corrosion.
To remove heavy soil and/or excessive brake dust, use MOPAR® Wheel Cleaner or
equivalent or select a non-abrasive, non-acidic cleaner.
CAUTION!
Do not use scouring pads, steel wool, a bristle brush, or metal polishes. Do not use oven
cleaner. These products may damage the wheel's protective finish. Avoid automatic car
washes that use acidic solutions or harsh brushes that may damage the wheel's
protective finish. Only MOPAR® Wheel Cleaner or equivalent is recommended.
