Box 21–8004 Auburn Hills, MI 48321–8004 Phone: 1-844-Alfa-USA (1-844-253-2872) READ THIS CAREFULLY Refueling Do not use fuel containing methanol or ethanol E85. Using these mixtures may cause misfiring and driving issues, as well as damage vital components of the supply system. For further details on the use of the correct fuel, see the "Fuel Requirements" paragraph in the "Technical Specifications" chapter. Starting The Engine Make sure that the electric park brake is engaged and that the transmission is in PARK (P) or NEUTRAL (N). Next, press the brake pedal, and then push the engine START/STOP button. Parking On Flammable Material The catalytic converter develops high temperatures during operation. Do not park the vehicle on grass, dry leaves, pine needles or other flammable material: fire hazard. Respecting The Environment The vehicle is fitted with a system that carries out a continuous diagnosis of the emission-related components in order to help protect the environment. Electrical Accessories If you decide to add electrical accessories after purchasing the vehicle, (with the risk of gradually draining the battery), contact your authorized dealer. They can calculate the overall electrical requirement and check that the vehicle's electric system can support the required load. Scheduled Servicing Correctly performed maintenance procedures are essential for ensuring that your vehicle continuously maintains its quality in performance and safety features, environmental friendliness, and low running costs. VEHICLE CHANGES / ALTERATIONS Accessories Purchased By The Owner Warning! Any change or alteration of the vehicle might seriously affect its safety and road handling, thus causing accidents, in which the occupants could even be fatally injured. If you decide to install electrical accessories that require a permanent electrical supply (e.g. radio, satellite anti-theft system, etc.) or accessories that in any case drain the electrical supply after purchasing the vehicle, contact your authorized dealer. Dealer personnel will check whether the vehicles's electrical system is able to withstand the load required or whether it needs to be integrated with a more powerful battery. Note: Use caution when adding additional spoilers, alloy wheel rims, or non-standard wheel hubs: they could reduce the ventilation of the brakes and affect efficiency under sharp and repeated braking, or on long descents. Make sure that nothing obstructs the pedals (mats, etc.). FCA US LLC shall not be liable for damage caused by the installation of accessories either not supplied or recommended by FCA US LLC and/or not installed in compliance with the provided instructions. Installing Electrical/Electronic Devices FCA US LLC authorizes the installation of transceivers provided that installation is carried out at a specialized center, in compliance with manufacturer's specifications. Note: Local authorities may not allow the vehicle on the road if devices that modify the features of the vehicle have been installed. This also may void the warranty in relation to faults caused by the change either directly or indirectly related to it. FCA US LLC shall not be liable for damage caused by the installation of accessories either not supplied or recommended by FCA US LLC and/or not installed in compliance with the provided instructions. Radio Transmitters And Mobile Phones Radio transmitter equipment (vehicle mobile phones, CB radios, amateur radio etc.) cannot be used inside the vehicle unless a separate antenna is mounted externally. Transmission and reception of these devices may be affected by the shielding effect of the vehicle body. As far as the use of approved mobile phones is concerned, follow the usage instructions provided by the mobile phone Manufacturer. Caution! The use of these devices inside the passenger compartment (without an external antenna) may cause the electrical systems to malfunction. This could compromise the safety of the vehicle in addition to constituting a potential hazard for passengers' health. If mobile phones/laptops/smartphones/tablets are inside the vehicle and/or close to the electronic key, a reduced performance of the Passive Entry/Keyless Start system may occur may occur.

Operation is subject to the following two conditions: 1. This device may not cause harmful interference, and 2. This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. Note: Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment. ENGINE IMMOBILIZER Engine Immobilizer Operation The Engine Immobilizer system prevents unauthorized use of the vehicle by disabling engine starting. The system does not need to be enabled or activated. Operation of the immobilizer is automatic whether the vehicle's doors are locked or unlocked. When the ignition is set to ON, the Engine Immobilizer system identifies the code transmitted by the key. If the code is recognized as valid, the Engine Immobilizer system enables engine starting. When the ignition is brought back to STOP, the Engine Immobilizer system deactivates the control unit controlling the engine, disabling engine starting. For the correct engine starting procedures, refer to “Starting The Engine” in “Starting And Operating.” Irregular Operation If the key code is not recognized during starting, the Engine Immobilizer Failure/Break-in Attempt icon is displayed on the instrument panel (refer to "Warning Lights And Messages" in "Getting To Know Your Instrument Panel"). This condition leads to the engine turning off after two seconds. In this case, switch the ignition to STOP and then to ON; if it is still blocked, try with the other keys provided. If it is still not possible to start the engine, contact an authorized dealer. If the Engine Immobilizer Failure/ Break-in Attempt icon is displayed while driving, this means that the system is running a self-diagnosis (e.g. due to a voltage drop). If the display persists, contact an authorized dealer. Note: Do not tamper with the Engine Immobilizer system. Any modifications or alterations could cause the protection function to be deactivated. The Engine Immobilizer system is not compatible with certain aftermarket remote starting systems. The use of these devices could cause problems when starting, as well as the deactivation of the protection function. All keys provided with the vehicle have been programmed in accordance with the electronics on the vehicle itself. Each key has its own code which must be stored by the system's control unit. Contact an authorized dealer to have new keys (up to eight) stored with a code. SECURITY ALARM SYSTEM — IF EQUIPPED button, located on the exterior door handle. For further information, refer to "Passive Entry" in "Doors.” Alarm Activation While armed, the alarm will sound in the following scenarios: Opening of doors/hood/trunk lid (perimeter protection) Operation of ignition with a key which is not validated Cutting of the battery cables Movement inside the passenger compartment (volumetric protection — if equipped) Unexpected lifting/tilting of the vehicle (anti-lift protection — if equipped) Activation of the alarm triggers the acoustic warning and the turn signals. Note: The alarm system is activated by the Engine Immobilizer system, which is automatically activated when you get out of the vehicle with the key fob and lock the doors. 04056S0003EM Passive Entry Door Handle Button When the alarm is armed, the warning lights on the panels of the interior front door handles will flash. To Disarm The Alarm Push the unlock button to disarm the alarm. While disarming, the following operations are performed: Two brief flashes of the turn signals (if programmed) Two brief acoustic signals (if programmed) To Arm The Alarm With the doors, hood, and trunk lid closed and the keyless ignition system placed in the STOP position, push and release the lock button on the key fob. The alarm can also be armed by pushing the Passive Entry door handle If a second acoustic signal is emitted after the alarm is already armed, wait about four seconds and disarm the alarm by pushing the unlock button. Verify that the doors, hood, and trunk lid are closed correctly and then rearm the system by pushing the lock button on the key fob. If the alarm emits an acoustic signal even when the doors, hood, and trunk lid are correctly closed, a fault has occurred in system operation. In this case, contact an authorized dealer. 04046S0001EM Doors are unlocked The alarm can also be disarmed using the Passive Entry System, by grasping one of the Passive Entry front door handles with a valid key fob in hand to unlock. For further information refer to "Passive Entry" in "Doors.” Lock/Unlock Buttons The activation of the alarm is preceded by a self-diagnosis stage: if a fault is detected, the system emits a further acoustic signal. 19 GETTING TO KNOW YOUR VEHICLE DOORS Locking And Unlocking Doors From The Inside 04056S0003EM Passive Entry Door Handle Button Note: The alarm does not disarm when the doors are unlocked by inserting the blade of the emergency key, found inside the key fob, into the door handle lock cylinder. Volumetric/Anti-Lift Protection — If Equipped To ensure the correct operation of the Volumetric/Anti-Lift Protection system, completely close the side windows. To disable the function, push the Volumetric/Anti-Lift Protection button before activating the alarm. When the function is disabled, this is indicated by the light on the Volumetric/Anti-Lift Protection button flashing for several seconds. 04046S0002EM Volumetric/Anti-Lift Protection Button Any disabling of the Volumetric/Anti-Lift Protection must be repeated each time the instrument panel is switched off.

Before exiting a vehicle, always shift the automatic transmission into PARK, apply the parking brake, turn the engine OFF, remove the key fob from the vehicle and lock your 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 gear selector. Do not leave the key fob in or near the vehicle, or in a location accessible to children. A child could operate power windows, other controls, or move the vehicle. Locking/Unlocking Doors From The Outside When locking the doors from the outside with the doors closed, push the lock button on the key fob. The door lock can be activated with all doors locked and the trunk lid open. When the lock button on the key fob is pushed, all locks are activated, including the open trunk lid. The trunk lid will be locked when it is closed. When unlocking the doors from the outside, push the unlock button on the key fob. Locking/Unlocking Doors From The Outside In An Emergency If the battery is discharged or the key fob is inoperable, you can lock or unlock the doors from the outside by inserting the blade of the emergency key, found inside the key fob, into the door handle lock cylinder and turn the emergency key as follows. Lock — Turn the emergency key to the right (clockwise) Unlock — Turn the emergency key to the left (counter clockwise) Caution! An unlocked vehicle is an invitation. Always remove the key from the ignition and lock all of the doors when leaving the vehicle unattended. Passive Entry — If Equipped The Passive Entry system can identify the presence of a key fob near the doors and trunk lid. The system enables the doors and trunk lid to be locked or unlocked without pushing any button on the key fob. The key fob is detected only after the system recognizes the presence of a hand on one of the front door handles. If the detected key fob is valid, the doors and the trunk lid are unlocked (refer to the Information and Entertainment System Owner’s Manual Supplement for Passive Entry Settings).

If the wiper switch is left on and the wipers freeze to the windshield, damage to the wiper motor may occur when the vehicle is restarted. Always remove any buildup of snow that prevents the windshield wiper blades from returning to the off position. If the windshield wiper control is turned off and the blades cannot return to the off position, damage to the wiper motor may occur. 39 GETTING TO KNOW YOUR VEHICLE Windshield Wiper/Washers 04146S0001EM Windshield Wiper Switch Operation: The switch on the wiper stalk can be set to the following positions: Windshield Wiper Off. Low Sensitivity Rain Sensing. High Sensitivity Rain Sensing. Low Continuous Wiper Speed. High Continuous Wiper Speed. Windshield Wiper Operation Rotating the switch to the position activates the first (low) level continuous speed of the windshield wipers in manual mode. Rotating the switch to the position activates the second (high) level continuous speed of the windshield wipers in manual mode. Rain Sensors Rotating the switch to the position, activates the first, less sensitive level of the Rain Sensing function. Rotating the switch to the position, activates the second, more sensitive level of the Rain Sensing function. Refer to “Rain Sensor” in this section for more information on how this system functions. Note: This function does not activate the windshield washer. To spray windshield washer fluid onto the windshield, the washing function must be used. Windshield Washer Operation Pull the stalk toward the steering wheel to operate the windshield washer. Keep the stalk pulled to activate both the windshield washer jet and the windshield wiper with a single movement. The wipers and washers will continue to operate until you let go of the stalk. The windshield wiper stops working three strokes after the stalk is released, followed by a final stroke six seconds later to complete the cycle. Sudden loss of visibility through the windshield could lead to a collision. You might not see other vehicles or other obstacles. To avoid sudden icing of the windshield during freezing weather, warm the windshield with the defroster before and during windshield washer use. Mist Use this feature when weather conditions make occasional usage of the wipers necessary. Push the stalk upward to the MIST position and release for a single wiping cycle. This function is useful to remove small deposits of dust from the windshield or morning dew. Warning! Rain Sensor The Rain Sensor is located behind the interior rear view mirror. This feature senses moisture on the windshield and automatically activates the wipers for the driver. 04146S0002EM Rain Sensor 40 The feature is especially useful for road splash or over spray from the windshield washers of the vehicle ahead. Rotate the end of the multifunction lever to one of four settings to activate this feature. The sensor has an adjustment range that varies progressively from wiper still (no stroke) when the windshield is dry, to wiper at continuous speed (fast operation) with intense rain. Activation Rotating the wiper switch to position or activates the rain sensor. The activation of the rain sensor system is done by tapping the wiper stalk upwards while the switch is in the or position. The variation in sensitivity during rain sensor operation is also signaled by a stroke of the wiper (command acquired and implemented). This stroke is also executed with the windshield dry. If the windshield washer is used with the rain sensor activated, the normal washing cycle is performed, after which the rain sensor resumes its normal automatic operation. Note: Keep the glass in the sensor area clean. Deactivation Use the wiper switch or cycle the ignition to STOP. If the ignition is cycled to the STOP position and the wiper switch is left in or position, no wiping cycle will occur even if it rains when the vehicle is next started (ignition at ON). This prevents accidental activation of the rain sensor when the engine is started (e.g. when the windshield is being washed by hand or the wipers are stuck to the windshield by ice). You can restore the automatic functioning of the rain sensor by tapping the wiper stalk upwards once the vehicle has been restarted. When the rain sensor is reactivated using any of the functions described above, reactivation is indicated by a single tap of the windshield wipers, regardless of the condition of the windshield. In the event of malfunction of the rain sensor while it is active, the windshield wiper operates intermittently at a speed consistent with the sensitivity setting of the rain sensor, whether or not there is rain on the glass for as long as the sensor failure is indicated on the display. The sensor continues to operate and it is possible to set the windshield wiper to continuous mode or . The failure indication remains on for as long as the sensor is active. The rain sensor is able to recognize and automatically adjust itself in the presence of the following conditions: Presence of dirt on the controlled surface (e.g. salt, dirt, etc.). Presence of streaks of water caused by the worn window wiper blades. Difference between day and night. 41 GETTING TO KNOW YOUR VEHICLE CLIMATE CONTROL Passenger Compartment Air Vents Side Air Vents To adjust the position of the Side Air Vents, move the Side Air Vent Adjuster (2) in any direction.

Air Recirculation And Air Quality System (AQS) Air Recirculation is managed according to the following operating mode: Automatic engagement: indicator is illuminated above the “A” on the Air Recirculation Button Forced activation (air circulation always activated): indicator illuminated icon on the Air above the Recirculation Button Forced deactivation (air recirculation always off with intake of outside air): both indicators not illuminated on the Air Recirculation Button The three operating conditions are obtained by pushing the Air Recirculation Button in sequence. Enabling The Air Quality System (AQS) Function — If Equipped When the automatic recirculation function is selected, the AQS function automatically activates internal air recirculation when the outside air is polluted (e.g. in heavy traffic and tunnels). At low external temperatures or in high humidity, the automatic function turns off to avoid fogging up the windows. The user can select the function again by pushing the Air Recirculation Button. In automatic operation, air recirculation will be controlled by the system according to outside environmental conditions. Note: With the AQS function active and after the internal air recirculation system has been functioning for a set amount of time, the Climate Control System enables air intake to cycle the air in the passenger compartment for a set time. The AQS function is disabled during the air changes. The engagement of the recirculation system makes it possible to reach the required heating or cooling conditions faster. It is, however, inadvisable to use it on rainy/cold days as it can increase the possibility of the windows fogging. When the outside temperature is low, recirculation is forced off to prevent the windows from fogging up. A/C Compressor Push the A/C button to activate or deactivate the A/C compressor (indicator illuminated when activated). The A/C compressor will remain off even after the engine has stopped. When the A/C compressor is turned off, the system deactivates air recirculation to prevent the windows from fogging up. If the climate control system can maintain the temperature, with the A/C turned off, the AUTO feature will remain on and the AUTO button indicator light will not switch off. To restore automatic control of the A/C compressor, push the A/C button or the AUTO button. With the A/C compressor off, the air speed can be set manually using the Air Speed Adjustment Knob. When the A/C compressor is on, and the engine is running, air speed cannot be lower than the minimum speed (only one indicator light is lit). Note: When the A/C is off the Climate Control system can not produce air that is colder than the current outside temperature. Under certain environmental conditions, windows could fog up rapidly, since the air is not dehumidified. Front Defroster And MAX-DEF Function Push the Front Defroster button (indicator illuminated) to defrost the windshield and side windows. While in MAX-DEF function, the air conditioner will: Activate the air conditioner compressor when the weather allows Turn air recirculation off Set the maximum air temperature (HI) on both the driver and passenger side Activate a blower speed based on the temperature of the engine coolant Adjust the air flow towards the windshield and front side windows Activate the Rear Window Defroster Display the fan speed (indicators illuminated) and current air distribution setting Note: The MAX-DEF function remains active for approximately three minutes once the engine coolant reaches the proper temperature. When the function is on, AUTO mode will deactivate. The only manual operations possible are adjusting blower speed and turning off the Rear Window Defroster. Pushing the button switches off the MAX-DEF function. Rear Defroster Push the Rear Defroster button to activate (indicators illuminated) the Rear Defroster. The Rear Defroster will turn off after 20 minutes or once the engine is turned off. To reactive the Rear Defroster, push the Rear Defroster button. Note: To avoid damage, do not apply stickers over the interior heating filaments of the Rear Defroster. Humidity Sensor The Humidity Sensor helps to prevent the windows from fogging up. The AUTO function (indicator illuminated) must be on for the Humidity Sensor to function. When outside temperature is low, the system may turn the compressor on and turn air recirculation off for safer driving. 47 GETTING TO KNOW YOUR VEHICLE Switching Off/On The Climate Control System Switching Off The Climate Control System Rotate the Air Speed Adjustment Knob completely counterclockwise to turn off the Climate Control System. With the air conditioner off: Air recirculation is on The A/C compressor is off The fan is off The heated rear window can be activated/deactivated Note: The climate control system stores the previously set temperatures and resumes operation when any button on the system is pushed. Switching On The Climate Control System To switch the climate control system on in automatic mode, push the AUTO button. Stop/Start The climate control system manages the Stop/Start system. Stop/Start has the engine shut off when vehicle speed is 0 mph (0 km/h) to maintain comfort within the vehicle. 48 Stop/Start will deactivate in the following scenarios: The climate control system is in AUTO mode (indicator illuminated), and the vehicle has yet to reach the set temperature The climate control system is in LO maximum cooling The climate control system is in HI maximum heating The climate control system is in the MAX-DEF status When the Stop/Start system is active, the engine will restart if the inside temperature changes significantly, or if the LO setting, or MAX-DEF setting, is activated. With Stop/Start system on, air flow is reduced to keep the compartment comfort conditions for longer. Until the temperature drastically changes within the cabin, the climate control system will continue to maintain the temperature while the engine is off. By deactivating the Stop/Start system with the button located on the dashboard, the climate control system will take priority over the engine shutting off. Note: In harsh climate conditions, limit the use of the Stop/Start system to prevent the compressor from continuously switching on and off. This will cause rapid misting of the windows and the accumulation of humidity in the passenger compartment. When the Stop/Start system is on, the climate control system will always take air in from outside, reducing the probability of the windows fogging up. Additional Heater — If Equipped Note: The additional heater automatically operates if the outside temperature and engine coolant temperature are low. The heater will not operate if battery voltage is low. System Maintenance In winter, the Climate Control System must be turned on at least once a month for approximately ten minutes. Have the system inspected at an authorized dealer before the summer.

Push and hold the desired HomeLink button (1, 2 or 3). When the HomeLink indicator begins to flash slowly, move the portable remote 55 GETTING TO KNOW YOUR VEHICLE 56 control one to three inches from the HomeLink system (keeping the programmable button pushed down). 2. If the indicator does not begin to flash quickly, change the distance between the HomeLink and the portable remote control and try the procedure again. 3. The HomeLink indicator flashes, first slowly and then quickly. When the indicator starts to flash quickly, release both buttons. Using The Homelink System The HomeLink system activates the garage door or gate motor, just like the portable remote control. The car must be within the range of the garage door and the ignition must be in the ON position. Push the programmed button (1, 2 or 3). While the signal is being transmitted, the indicator is lit and the system (garage door, gate, etc.) will respond. If the HomeLink system does not operate, the original portable remote control may be equipped with an alternative code (refer to “Alternative Code Synchronization”). If necessary, the original remote control can still be used to operate the system. Alternative Code Synchronization To check whether the garage door or gate motor has an alternative code, proceed as follows: 1. Read the garage door or gate motor manufacturer manual. 2. The portable remote control seems to have programmed to the HomeLink system, but the garage door or gate can be neither opened or closed. 3. Push the programmed button and keep it pushed (1, 2 or 3). With an alternative code system, the indicator flashes briefly, and then remains off for two seconds. This sequence is repeated for 20 seconds. Warning! Vehicle exhaust contains carbon monoxide, a dangerous gas. Do not run your vehicle in the garage while programming the transceiver. Exhaust gas can cause serious injury or death. Your motorized door or gate will open and close while you are programming the universal transceiver. Do not program the transceiver if people, pets or other objects are in the path of the door or gate. Only use this transceiver with a garage door opener that has a “stop and reverse” feature as required by Federal safety standards. This includes most garage door opener models manufactured after 1982. Do not use a garage door opener without these safety features. Call toll-free 1-800-355-3515 or, on the Internet at HomeLink.com for safety information or assistance. Note: To program Homelink using an Alternative Code, the car must be within range of the garage door. Activate the handbrake and turn the ignition to ON, without starting the engine. Proceed as follows: 1. Locate the “Learn” or “Train” button on the garage door or gate motor. The color and position may vary depending on the manufacturer (consult the garage door or gate manual). Push the “Learn” or “Train” button (this normally activates the setting warning light). 2. Push the desired HomeLink button (1, 2 or 3). When the HomeLink indicator begins to flash slowly, move the portable remote control one to three inches from the HomeLink system (keeping the programmable button pushed down). 3. Within 30 seconds, push the programmed key (1, 2 or 3) and release it. Push the programmed button a second time and release it to conclude the operation. For some motors, the operation will probably have to be repeated a third time to end the setting. The motor should now be capable of recognizing the signal transmitted by HomeLink and then open/close the door or gate. Programming A Single Key It is possible to program another original remote control on an already programmed HomeLink key by canceling the previously stored frequency. Warning! Vehicle exhaust contains carbon monoxide, a dangerous gas. Do not run your vehicle in the garage while programming the transceiver. Exhaust gas can cause serious injury or death. Your motorized door or gate will open and close while you are programming the universal transceiver. Do not program the transceiver if people, pets or other objects are in the path of the door or gate. Only use this transceiver with a garage door opener that has a “stop and reverse” feature as required by Federal safety standards.

Proceed as follows: 1. Push the desired HomeLink button and keep it pushed (1, 2 or 3). Do not release the button until the last operation has been performed. 2. When the HomeLink indicator begins to flash slowly, move the portable remote control 1 to 3 inches from the system (keeping the programmable button pressed down). If the indicator does not begin to flash quickly, change the distance between the HomeLink and the portable remote control and try the procedure again. The HomeLink indicator flashes, first slowly and then quickly. When the indicator starts to flash quickly, release both buttons on the remote control. The system previously programmed to HomeLink has now been deleted and the new system is ready to use. This does not affect the other two HomeLink buttons in any way. Deleting Programmed Keys It is recommended to delete HomeLink programming before selling the car. All three keys are deleted simultaneously. Proceed as follows: 1. Push and hold the outer buttons (1 and 3). After about ten seconds, the indicator will start to flash. 2. Release both keys.

WARNING LIGHTS AND MESSAGES ON THE INSTRUMENT PANEL The following pages consist of warning lights and messages. Note: The warning light turns on together with a dedicated message and/or chime when applicable. These indications are precautionary and as such must not be considered as exhaustive and/or alternative to the information contained in the Owner’s Manual, which you are advised to read carefully in all cases. Always refer to the information in this section in the event of a failure indication. The failure indicators appearing on the display are divided into two categories: very serious and less serious faults. Serious faults are indicated by a repeated and prolonged warning "cycle.” Less serious faults are indicated by a warning "cycle" with a shorter duration. You can stop the warning cycle in both cases by pushing the button located on the windshield wiper stalk. The instrument panel warning light will stay on until the cause of the failure is eliminated. Red Warning Lights Warning Light What It Means What To Do INSUFFICIENT BRAKE FLUID/ELECTRIC PARK BRAKE ON 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. For low brake fluid level, go to an authorized dealer to have the system checked as soon as possible. Release the electric park brake, then check that the warning light has turned off. If the warning light stays on, contact an authorized dealer. ELECTRONIC BRAKING FORCE DISTRIBUTION (EBD) FAILURE The simultaneous turning on of the BRAKE (red) and (amber) warning lights with the engine on indicates either a failure of the EBD system or that the system is not available. In this case, the rear wheels may suddenly lock and the vehicle may swerve when braking abruptly. Drive very carefully to the nearest authorized dealer to have the system inspected immediately. 69 GETTING TO KNOW YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL Warning Light What It Means What To Do AIR BAG WARNING LIGHT This light will turn on for four to eight seconds as a bulb check when the ignition is placed in the ON/RUN position. If the light is either not on during startup, stays on, or turns on while driving, have the system inspected at an authorized dealer as soon as possible. This light will illuminate with a single chime when a fault with the Air Bag Warning Light has been detected, it will stay on until the fault is cleared. If the light comes on intermittently or remains on while driving, have an authorized dealer service the vehicle immediately. If the problem persists, contact an authorized dealer. SEAT BELT REMINDER WARNING LIGHT When the ignition is first placed in the ON/RUN position, if the driver’s seat belt is unbuckled, a chime will sound and the light will turn on. When driving, if the driver or front passenger seat belt remains unbuckled, the Seat Belt Reminder Light will flash or remain on continuously and a chime will sound. Refer to “Occupant Restraints” in “Safety” for further information. Always wear your seat belt when operating the vehicle. OIL TEMPERATURE WARNING LIGHT This telltale indicates engine oil temperature is high. Stop the vehicle and shut off the engine as soon as possible. If the problem persists, contact an authorized dealer. Warning! The fault of the warning light is signaled by the turning on of the icon on the instrument panel. In this case, the warning light may not indicate any faults with the restraint systems. Before proceeding, contact an authorized dealer to have the system checked immediately. If the warning light does not turn on when the ignition device is moved to ON or if it stays on when driving (together with the message on the display), there might be a fault in the restraint systems; in this case, the air bags or pretensioners may not deploy in the event of an accident or, in a lower number of cases, they could deploy erroneously. Before proceeding, contact an authorized dealer to have the system checked immediately. 70 Amber Warning Lights Warning Light What It Means What To Do ANTI-LOCK BRAKE (ABS) INDICATOR LIGHT This light monitors the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS). The light will turn on when the ignition is placed in the ON/RUN position and may stay on for as long as four seconds. If the ABS light remains on or turns on while driving, then the Anti-Lock portion of the brake system is not functioning and service is required. However, the conventional brake system will continue to operate normally if the brake indicator 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 does not turn on when the ignition is placed in the ON/RUN position, have the light inspected by an authorized dealer. Drive carefully and contact an authorized dealer as soon as possible. TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING INDICATOR LIGHT The warning light switches on and a message is displayed to indicate that the tire pressure is lower than the recommended value and/or that slow pressure loss is occurring. In these cases, optimal tire duration and fuel consumption may not be guaranteed. Should one or more tires be in the condition mentioned above, the display will show the indications corresponding to each tire in sequence. Continue driving for up to 50 miles (80 km) at a speed no higher then 50 mph (80 km/h). Contact an authorized dealer to have the tire repaired. 71 GETTING TO KNOW YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL 72 Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires.) As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated. Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability. Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale. Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction indicator to indicate when the system is not operating properly. The TPMS malfunction indicator is combined with the low tire pressure telltale. When the system detects a malfunction, the telltale will flash for approximately one minute and then remain continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon subsequent vehicle start-ups as long as the malfunction exists. When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may not be able to detect or signal low tire pressure as intended. TPMS malfunctions may occur for a variety of reasons, including the installation of replacement or alternate tires or wheels on the vehicle that prevent the TPMS from functioning properly. Always check the TPMS malfunction telltale after replacing one or more tires or wheels on your vehicle, to ensure that the replacement or alternate tires and wheels allow the TPMS to continue to function properly. Caution! The TPMS has been optimized for the original equipment tires and wheels. TPMS pressures and warning have been established for the tire size equipped on your vehicle. Undesirable system operation or sensor damage may result when using replacement equipment that is not of the same size, type, and/or style. Aftermarket wheels can cause sensor damage. Using aftermarket tire sealants may cause the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) sensor to become inoperable. After using an aftermarket tire sealant it is recommended that you take your vehicle to an authorized dealership to have your sensor function checked. Warning Light What It Means Tire Pressure Low The indicator light will illuminate to indicate that the tire pressure is lower than the recommended value and/or that slow pressure loss is occurring. In these cases, optimal tire duration and fuel consumption may not be guaranteed. What To Do In any situation in which the message on the display is "See Manual", it is ESSENTIAL to refer to “Auxiliary Driving Systems” in “Safety,” strictly complying with the indications that you find there. ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL (ESC) INDICATOR LIGHT When the ignition is cycled to ON, the indicator light illuminates, but should turn off as soon as the engine is started. ESC System Intervention: Intervention by the system is indicated by the flashing of the indicator light: it indicates that the vehicle is in critical stability and grip conditions. ESC System Failure: If the indicator light does not turn off, or if it stays on with the engine running, a failure was found in the ESC system. In these cases, contact an authorized dealer as soon as possible. Hill Start Assist System Failure: The illumination of the indicator light indicates a Hill Start Assist system failure. 73 GETTING TO KNOW YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL Warning Light What It Means What To Do ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL (ESC) OFF INDICATOR LIGHT — IF EQUIPPED When the ignition is cycled to ON, the indicator light illuminates, but should turn off as soon as the engine is started.

It also alerts the driver of when these components are no longer in peak condition by switching on the warning light on the instrument panel (see “Warning Lights And Messages” paragraph in this chapter). The aim of the OBD system (Onboard Diagnostic) is to: Monitor the efficiency of the system Indicate an increase in emissions Indicate the need to replace damaged components The vehicle also has a connector, which can interface with appropriate tools, that makes it possible to read the error codes stored in the electronic control units together with a series of specific parameters for engine operation and diagnosis. This check can be carried out by your authorized dealer. Note: After eliminating a fault, to check the system completely, your authorized dealer is obliged to run tests and, if necessary certain road tests. Your vehicle is required to have an Onboard Diagnostic system (OBD II) and a connection port to allow access to information related to the performance of your emissions controls. Authorized service technicians may need to access this information to assist with the diagnosis and service of your vehicle and emissions system. Warning! ONLY an authorized service technician should connect equipment to the OBD II connection port in order to diagnose or service your vehicle. If unauthorized equipment is connected to the OBD II connection port, such as a driver-behavior tracking device, it may: Be possible that vehicle systems, including safety related systems, could be impaired or a loss of vehicle control could occur that may result in an accident involving serious injury or death. Access, or allow others to access, information stored in your vehicle systems, including personal information. SAFETY This very important section describes the safety systems that your vehicle may be equipped with, and provides instructions on how to use them correctly. ACTIVE SAFETY SYSTEMS . . . . . .92 AUXILIARY DRIVING SYSTEMS . . . .95 OCCUPANT RESTRAINT SYSTEMS . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .104 SAFETY TIPS . . . . . . . . . . . . . .128 91 SAFETY ACTIVE SAFETY SYSTEMS The vehicle may be equipped with the following active safety devices: Anti-Lock Braking (ABS) System Drive Train Control (DTC) System Electronic Stability Control (ESC) System Traction Control System (TCS) Panic Brake Assist (PBA) System Hill Start Assist (HSA) System Dynamic Steering Torque (DST) System For the operation of the systems, see the following pages. Anti-Lock Braking (ABS) System An integral part of the braking system, the ABS prevents one or more wheels from locking and slipping in all road surface conditions, regardless of the intensity of the braking action. The system ensures that the vehicle can be controlled even during emergency braking, allowing the driver to optimize stopping distances. The system intervenes during braking when the wheels are about to lock, typically in emergency braking or low-grip conditions where locking may be more frequent. The system also improves control and stability of the vehicle when braking on a surface where the grip of the left and right wheels varies, such as in a corner. The Electronic Braking Force Distribution (EBD) system works with the ABS, allowing the brake force to be distributed between the front and rear wheels. System Intervention The ABS equipped on this vehicle is provided with the "Brake-by-wire" (Integrated Brake System - IBS) function. With this system, the command given by pressing the brake pedal is not transmitted hydraulically, but electrically. Therefore, the light pulsation that is felt on the pedal with the traditional system is no longer noticeable. Warning! The ABS contains sophisticated electronic equipment that may be susceptible to interference caused by improperly installed or high output radio transmitting equipment. This interference can cause possible loss of anti-lock braking capability. Installation of such equipment should be performed by qualified professionals. Pumping of the Anti-Lock Brakes will diminish their effectiveness and may lead to a collision. Pumping makes the stopping 92 distance longer. Just press firmly on your brake pedal when you need to slow down or stop. 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 collisions, including those resulting from excessive speed in turns, following another vehicle too closely, or hydroplaning. The capabilities of an ABS equipped vehicle must never be exploited in a reckless or dangerous manner that could jeopardize the user’s safety or the safety of others. Drive Train Control (DTC) System — If Equipped Some models of this vehicle are equipped with an All-Wheel Drive system (AWD), which offers an optimal drive for countless driving conditions and road surfaces. The system reduces the slipping of the tires to a minimum, automatically redistributing the torque to the front and rear wheels as needed. To maximize fuel savings, the vehicle with AWD automatically passes to rear-wheel drive (RWD) when the road and environmental conditions are such that they wouldn't cause the tires to slip. When the road and environmental conditions require better traction, the vehicle automatically goes to AWD mode. The driving mode, RWD or AWD, is shown on the instrument cluster display. Note: If the system failure symbol switches on, after starting the engine or while driving, it means that the AWD system is not working properly. If the warning message activates frequently, it is recommended to carry out the maintenance operations. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) System The ESC system improves the directional control and stability of the vehicle in various driving conditions. The ESC system corrects the vehicle’s understeer and oversteer, distributing the brake force on the appropriate wheels. The torque supplied by the engine can also be reduced in order to maintain control of the vehicle. The ESC system uses sensors installed on the vehicle to determine the path that the driver intends to follow and compares it with the vehicle’s effective path. When the real path deviates from the desired path, the ESC system intervenes to counter the vehicle’s understeer or oversteer. Oversteer occurs when the vehicle is turning more than it should according to the angle of the steering wheel. Understeer occurs when the vehicle is turning less than it should according to the angle of the steering wheel. System Intervention The intervention of the system is indicated by the flashing of the ESC warning light on the instrument panel, to inform the driver that the vehicle stability and grip are critical. Warning! Electronic Stability Control (ESC) cannot prevent the natural laws of physics from acting on the vehicle, nor can it increase the traction afforded by prevailing road conditions. ESC cannot prevent accidents, including those resulting from excessive speed in turns, driving on very slippery surfaces, or hydroplaning. ESC also cannot prevent accidents resulting from loss of vehicle control due to inappropriate driver input for the conditions. Only a safe, attentive, and skillful driver can prevent accidents. The capabilities of an ESC equipped vehicle must never be exploited in a reckless or dangerous manner which could jeopardize the user’s safety or the safety of others. Vehicle modifications, or failure to properly maintain your vehicle, may change the handling characteristics of your vehicle, and may negatively affect the performance of the ESC system. Changes to the steering system, suspension, braking system, tire type and size or wheel size may adversely affect ESC performance. Improperly inflated and unevenly worn tires may also degrade ESC performance. Any vehicle modification or poor vehicle maintenance that reduces the effectiveness of the ESC system can increase the risk of loss of vehicle control, vehicle rollover, personal injury and death. Traction Control System (TCS) The system automatically operates in the event of slipping, loss of grip on wet roads (hydroplaning), and acceleration on one or both drive wheels on roads that are slippery, snowy, icy, etc. Depending on the slipping conditions, two different control systems are activated: If the slipping involves both drive wheels, the system intervenes, reducing the power transmitted by the engine. If the slipping only involves one of the drive wheels, the Brake Limited Differential (BLD) function is activated, automatically braking the wheel which is slipping (the behavior of a self-locking differential is simulated). This will increase the engine torque transferred to the wheel which isn't slipping. 93 SAFETY System Intervention The intervention of the system is indicated by the flashing of the ESC warning light on the instrument panel, to inform the driver that the vehicle stability and grip are critical. Panic Brake Assist (PBA) System The PBA system is designed to improve the vehicle’s braking capacity during emergency braking. The system detects emergency braking by monitoring the speed and force with which the brake pedal is pressed, and consequently applies the optimal brake pressure. This can reduce the braking distance: the PBA system therefore complements the ABS. Maximum assistance from the PBA system is obtained by pressing the brake pedal very quickly. In addition, the brake pedal should be pressed continuously during braking, avoiding intermittent presses, to get the most out of the system. Do not reduce pressure on the brake pedal until braking is no longer necessary. The PBA system is deactivated when the brake pedal is released. 94 Warning! The Panic Brake Assist (PBA) cannot prevent the natural laws of physics from acting on the vehicle, nor can it increase the traction afforded by prevailing road conditions. PBA cannot prevent collisions, including those resulting from excessive speed in turns, driving on very slippery surfaces, or hydroplaning. The capabilities of a PBA-equipped vehicle must never be exploited in a reckless or dangerous manner, which could jeopardize the user's safety or the safety of others. Hill Start Assist (HSA) System This is an integral part of the ESC system and facilitates starting on slopes, activating automatically in the following cases: Uphill: vehicle stationary on a road with a gradient higher than 5%, engine running, brake pressed and transmission in NEUTRAL (N) or gear other than REVERSE (R) engaged. Downhill: vehicle stationary on a road with a gradient higher than 5%, engine running, brake pressed and reverse gear engaged. When setting off, the ESC system control unit maintains the braking pressure on the wheels until the engine torque necessary for starting is reached, or in any case for a maximum of two seconds, allowing your right foot to be moved easily from the brake pedal to the accelerator. The system will automatically deactivate after two seconds without starting, gradually releasing the braking pressure. During this release stage, it is possible to hear a typical mechanical brake release noise, indicating the imminent movement of the vehicle. Warning! There may be situations where the Hill Start Assist (HSA) will not activate and slight rolling may occur, such as on minor hills or with a loaded vehicle, or while pulling a trailer. HSA is not a substitute for active driving involvement. It is always the driver’s responsibility to be attentive to distance to other vehicles, people, and objects, and most importantly brake operation to ensure safe operation of the vehicle under all road conditions. Your complete attention is always required while driving to maintain safe control of your vehicle. Failure to follow these warnings can result in a collision or serious personal injury. Dynamic Steering Torque (DST) System The DST function uses the integration of the ESC system with the electric power steering to increase the safety level of the whole vehicle. In critical situations (braking on surfaces with different grip conditions), the ESC system controls the steering through the DST function to implement an additional torque contribution on the steering wheel in order to suggest the most correct maneuver to the driver. The coordinated action of the brakes and steering increases the sensation of safety and control of the vehicle. Note: The DST feature is only meant to help the driver realize the correct course of action through small torques on the steering wheel, which means the effectiveness of the DST feature is highly dependent on the driver’s sensitivity and overall reaction to the applied torque. It is very important to realize that this feature will not steer the vehicle, meaning the driver is still responsible for steering the vehicle. AUXILIARY DRIVING SYSTEMS The following auxiliary driving systems are available in this vehicle: warning light located within the door mirror on the side in which the other vehicle was detected. Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) Forward Collision Warning (FCW) Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) System The Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) system uses two radar sensors, located in the rear bumper (one for each side), to detect the presence of other vehicles in the rear side blind spots of your vehicle. 06016S0001EM Rear Sensor Location The system warns the driver about the presence of other vehicles in the detection area by illuminating the 06016S0002EM BSM Indicator Light When the engine is started the warning light turns on to signal the driver that the system is active. Sensors The sensors are activated when any forward gear is engaged at a speed higher than approximately 6 mph (10 km/h) or when REVERSE is engaged. The sensors are temporarily deactivated when the vehicle is stationary and in PARK (P). The detection area of the system covers approximately a lane on both sides of the vehicle which is around 9 ft (3 m). This area begins from the door mirror and extends for approximately 19 ft (6 m) towards the rear part of the vehicle. 95 SAFETY When the sensors are active, the system monitors the detection areas on both sides of the vehicle and warns the driver about the possible presence of vehicles in these areas. While driving, the system monitors the detection area from three different input points (side, rear and front) to check whether an alert needs to be sent to the driver. The system can detect the presence of a vehicle in one of these three areas. Note: The system does not alert the driver for the presence of fixed object (e.g. safety barriers, poles, walls, etc.). However, in some circumstances, the system may activate in the presence of these objects. This is normal and does not indicate a system malfunction. The system does not alert the driver about the presence of vehicles coming from the opposite direction, in the adjacent lanes. vehicle’s mirrors, glance over your shoulder, and use your turn signal before changing lanes. Failure to do so can result in serious injury or death. Note: For the system to operate correctly, the rear bumper area where the radar sensors are located must stay free from snow, ice and dirt gathered from the road surface. Do not cover the rear bumper area where the radar sensors are located with any object (e.g. adhesives, bike rack, etc.). If you wish to install the tow hook after purchasing the vehicle, you need to deactivate the system via the Information and Entertainment System. To access the function, select the following items in sequence on the main menu: 1. “Settings.” 2. “Safety.” Warning! The Blind Spot Monitoring system is only an aid to help detect objects in the blind spot zones. The BSM system is not designed to detect pedestrians, bicyclists, or animals. Even if your vehicle is equipped with the BSM system, always check your 96 3. “Blind Spot Alert.” Rear View The system detects vehicles coming from the rear part of your vehicle on both sides and entering the rear detection area with a difference in speed of less than 31 mph (50 km/h) with relation to your vehicle. Overtaking Vehicles If another vehicle is overtaken slowly, with a difference in speed of less than approximately 15 mph (25 km/h) and the vehicle stays in the blind spot for approximately 1.5 seconds, the warning light on the door mirror of the corresponding side illuminates. If the difference in speed between the two vehicles is greater than approximately 15 mph (25 km/h), the warning light does not illuminate. Rear Cross Path Detection (RCP) System This system helps the driver during reverse maneuvers in the case of reduced visibility. The RCP system monitors the rear detection areas on both sides of the vehicle to detect objects moving towards the sides of the vehicle, with a minimum speed between approximately 1 mph (1 km/h) and 2 mph (3 km/h) and objects moving at a maximum speed of 21 mph (35 km/h), in areas such as parking lots. The system activation is signaled to the driver by an acoustic warning. Note: If the sensors are covered by objects or vehicles, the system will not warn the driver. Warning! Rear Cross Path Detection (RCP) is not a back up aid system. It is intended to be used to help a driver detect an oncoming vehicle in a parking lot situation. Drivers must be careful when backing up, even when using RCP. Always check carefully behind your vehicle, look behind you, and be sure to check for pedestrians, animals, other vehicles, obstructions, and blind spots before backing up. Failure to do so can result in serious injury or death. The warning will be fixed if the driver stays in the same lane. Forward Collision Warning (FCW) System "Blind Spot Alert" Function Deactivation When the system is deactivated ("Blind Spot Alert" mode off), the BSM or RCP systems will not emit neither an acoustic nor visual warnings. The BSM system will store the operating mode running when the engine was stopped. Each time the engine is started, the operating mode stored previously will be recalled and used. This is a driving assistance system which comprises a radar located behind the front bumper and a camera located in the central part of the windshield. General Information Operating Mode The system may be activated/ deactivated via the Information and Entertainment System. To access the function, select the following items on the main menu in sequence: 1. “Settings.” 2. “Safety.” This vehicle has systems that operate on radio frequency that comply with Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules and with Industry Canada Standards RSSGEN/210/220/310. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: 3. “Blind Spot Alert.” 1. The device may not cause harmful interference. "Blind Spot Alert,” "Visual" Mode When the system is enabled, the warning light within the door mirror on the side of the detected object illuminates. The visual warning on the mirror will blink if the driver activates the turn signals, thus indicating the intention to change lane. 2. The device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device. Changes or modifications to any of these systems by other than an authorized service facility could void authorization to use this equipment. 06016S0003EM Front Bumper Radar Location 06016S0004EM Windshield Camera Location In the event of an imminent collision, the system intervenes by automatically braking the vehicle to prevent the crash or reduce its effects. 97 SAFETY 98 The system provides the driver with audible and visual signals through specific messages on the instrument cluster display. The system may lightly brake to warn the driver if a possible frontal accident is detected (limited braking). Signals and limited braking are intended to allow the driver to react promptly, in order to prevent or reduce the effects of a potential accident. In situations with the risk of collision, if the system detects no intervention by the driver, it provides automatic braking to help slow the vehicle and mitigate the potential frontal collision (automatic braking). If intervention by the driver on the brake pedal is detected, but not deemed sufficient, the system may intervene in order to improve the reaction of the braking system, therefore reducing vehicle speed further (additional assistance in braking stage). The system will intervene automatically in case of imminent collision or impact against a pedestrian crossing the road (speed under 31 mph (50 km/h)). Note: For safety reasons, when the vehicle has stopped, the brake calipers may remain blocked for about two seconds. Make sure you press the brake pedal if the vehicle moves slightly forward. Warning! Forward Collision Warning (FCW) is not intended to avoid a collision on its own, nor can FCW detect every type of potential collision. The driver has the responsibility to avoid a collision by controlling the vehicle via braking and steering. Failure to follow this warning could lead to serious injury or death. Engagement/Disengagement The following functions can be selected in sequence using the Information and Entertainment System: 1. “Settings.” 2. “Safety.” 3. “Forward Collision Warning.” 4. “Mode.” Select from among three operating modes: Warning And Brake: the system (if active), in addition to the visual and audible warnings, provides limited braking, automatic braking and additional assistance in braking stage, where the driver does not brake sufficiently in the event of a potential frontal impact. Only Warning: the system (if active), does not provide limited braking, but guarantees automatic braking or additional assistance in braking stage, where the driver does not brake at all or not sufficiently in the event of a potential frontal impact. Disable: the system does not provide visual and audible warnings, limited braking, automatic braking or additional assistance in braking stage. The system will therefore provide no indication of a possible accident. Activation/Deactivation The Forward Collision Warning system is activated whenever the engine is started regardless of what is shown on the Information and Entertainment System. Following a deactivation, the system will not warn the driver about the possible collision with the preceding vehicle, regardless of the setting selected with the Information and Entertainment System. Note: Each time the engine is started, the system is activated regardless of what setting was selected when the engine was turned OFF This function is not active at a speed lower than 4 mph (7 km/h) or higher than 124 mph (200 km/h). The system is active: Each time the engine is started. In the Information and Entertainment System. When the ignition is in the ON position. The vehicle speed is between 4 mph (7 km/h) and 124 mph (200 km/h). When the front seat belts are fastened. Changing The System Sensitivity The sensitivity of the system can be changed through the Information and Entertainment System menu, choosing from one of the following three options: "Near", "Med" or "Far". Refer to the description in the “Information and Entertainment System Supplement” for how to change the settings. The default setting is "Med". With this setting, the system warns the driver of a possible collision with the vehicle in front when that vehicle is at a standard distance, between that of the other two settings. With the system sensitivity set to "Far", the system will warn the driver of a possible collision with the vehicle in front when that vehicle is at a greater distance, thus providing the possibility of acting on the brakes more lightly and gradually. This setting provides the drivers with the maximum possible reaction time to prevent a potential accident. With the option set to "Near", the system will alert the driver of a possible collision with the vehicle in front when that vehicle is close. This setting offers the driver a lower reaction time compared to the "Med" and "Far" settings, in the event of a potential collision, but permits more dynamic driving of the vehicle. The system sensitivity setting is kept in the memory when the engine is turned OFF. System Limited Operation Signal If a dedicated message is displayed, a condition limiting the system operation may have occurred. The possible reasons of this limitation are something blocking the camera view or a fault. If an obstruction is signaled, clean the area of the windshield indicated in. Although the vehicle can still be driven in normal conditions, the system may be not completely available. When the conditions limiting the system functions end, this will go back to normal and complete operation. Should the fault persist, contact an authorized dealer. System Failure Signaling If the system turns off and a dedicated message is shown on the display, it means that there is a fault with the system. In this case, it is still possible to drive the vehicle, but you are advised to contact an authorized dealer as soon as possible. Radar Indication Not Available If conditions are such that the radar cannot detect obstacles correctly, the system is deactivated and a dedicated message appears on the display. This generally occurs in the event of poor visibility, such as when it is snowing or raining heavily. The function of this system can also be temporarily reduced due to obstructions such as mud, dirt or ice on the bumper. In such cases, a dedicated message will be shown on the display and the system will be deactivated. This message can sometimes appear in conditions of high reflectivity (e.g. tunnels with reflective tiles or ice or snow). When the conditions limiting the system functions end, it will go back to normal and complete operation. In certain cases, this dedicated message could be displayed when the radar is not detecting any vehicles or objects within its view range. If atmospheric conditions are not the reason behind this message, check if the sensor is dirty. It could be necessary to clean or remove any obstructions in the area. 99 SAFETY 100 If the message appears frequently, even in the absence of atmospheric conditions such as snow, rain, mud or other obstructions, contact an authorized dealer for a sensor alignment check. In the absence of visible obstructions, manually removing the decorative cover trim and cleaning the radar surface could be required. Have this operation performed at an authorized dealer. Note: It is recommended that you do not install devices, accessories or aerodynamic attachments in front of the sensor or darken it in any way, as this can compromise the correct functioning of the system. Frontal Collision Alarm With Active Braking — If Equipped If this function is selected, the brakes are operated to reduce the speed of the vehicle in the event of potential frontal impact. This function applies an additional braking pressure if the braking pressure applied by the driver does not suffice to prevent potential frontal impact. The function is active with speed above 4 mph (7 km/h). Driving In Special Conditions In certain driving conditions, system intervention might be unexpected or delayed. The driver must therefore be very careful, keeping control of the vehicle to drive in complete safety. Driving close to a bend. The vehicle ahead is leaving a roundabout. Vehicles with small dimensions and/or not aligned in the driving lane. Lane change by other vehicles. Vehicles traveling at right angles to the vehicle. System intervention might be unexpected or delayed. The driver must therefore be very careful, keeping control of the vehicle to drive in complete safety. Note: In particularly complex traffic conditions, the driver can deactivate the system manually through the Information and Entertainment System. Driving Close To A Bend When entering or leaving a wide bend, the system may detect a vehicle in front you, but not driving on the same driving lane. In cases such as these, the system may intervene. 06016S0005EM Driving Around Wide Curves The Vehicle Ahead Is Leaving A Roundabout On a roundabout, the system could intervene if it detects a vehicle ahead which is leaving the roundabout. 06016S0010EM Driving In Roundabouts Vehicles With Small Dimensions And/Or Not Aligned In The Driving Lane The system cannot detect vehicles in front of you but outside the range of the radar sensor and may therefore not react in the presence of small vehicles, such as bicycles or motorcycles. Warning! The system has not been designed to prevent impacts and cannot detect possible conditions leading to an accident in advance. Failure to take into account this warning may lead to serious or fatal injuries. 06016S0007EM Other Vehicles Changing Lanes Vehicles Traveling At Right Angles To The Vehicle The system may temporarily react to a vehicle that is passing through the radar sensor’s operating range at right angles. 06016S0006EM Driving Near Small Vehicles Lane Change By Other Vehicles Vehicles suddenly changing lanes to enter the same lane as your vehicle within the operating range of the radar sensor, may cause the system to intervene. 06016S0008EM Other Vehicle Passing Through Radar Range The system may activate, assessing the trajectory of the vehicle, for the presence of reflecting metal objects different from other vehicles, such as safety barriers, road signs, barriers before parking lots, tollgates, level crossings, gates, railways, objects near road constructions sites or higher than the vehicle (e.g. a fly-over). In the same way, the system may intervene inside multi-story parking lots or tunnels, or due to a glare on the road surface. These possible activations are a consequence of the real driving scenario coverage by the system and must not be regarded as faults. The system has been designed for road use only. If the vehicle is driven on a track, the system must be deactivated to avoid unnecessary warnings. Automatic deactivation is signaled by the dedicated warning light/symbol switching on in the instrument panel (refer to the instructions in the "Warning Lights And Messages On The Instrument Panel" in "Getting To Know Your Instrument Panel" for further information). 101 SAFETY 102 Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) This vehicle is equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that sends the inflation pressure information of each tire to the control unit, and will signal the driver in the event of insufficient tire pressure. Tire pressure will vary with temperature by approximately 1 psi (7 kPa) for every 12°F (6.5°C). This means that when the outside temperature decreases, the tire pressure will also decrease. Tire pressure should always be set based on cold inflation tire pressure. This is defined as the tire pressure after the vehicle has not been driven for at least three hours, or driven less than 1 mile (1.6 km) after a three hour period. The cold tire inflation pressure must not exceed the maximum inflation pressure molded into the tire sidewall. Refer to “Tires” in “Servicing And Maintenance” for information on how to properly inflate the vehicle’s tires. The tire pressure will also increase as the vehicle is driven. This is normal, and there should be no adjustment for this increased pressure. The TPMS will signal the driver if pressure falls below the warning limit for any reason, including the effects of low temperature and normal loss of pressure from the tire. The TPMS will stop indicating insufficient tire pressure when pressure is equal to or greater than the prescribed cold inflation level. Therefore, if insufficient tire pressure is indicated by the ( ) warning light displaying in the instrument cluster, increase the inflation pressure up to the prescribed cold inflation value. The system will automatically update, and the “Tire Pressure Monitoring Telltale Light” will turn off once the system receives the updated tire pressures. The vehicle may need to be driven for up to 20 minutes above 15 mph (24 km/h) in order for the TPMS to receive this information. Operating Example For example, your vehicle may have a recommended cold (parked for more than three hours) placard 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 low enough to turn on the “Tire Pressure Monitoring Warning Light.” Driving the vehicle may cause the tire pressure to rise to approximately 28 psi (193 kPa), but the “Tire Pressure Monitoring Telltale Light” will still be on. In this situation, the “Tire Pressure Monitoring Warning Light” will turn off only after the tires are inflated to the vehicle’s recommended cold placard pressure value. Caution! The TPMS has been optimized for the original equipment tires and wheels. TPMS pressures and warning have been established for the tire size equipped on your vehicle. Undesirable system operation or sensor damage may result when using replacement equipment that is not of the same size, type, and/or style. The TPM sensor is not designed for use on aftermarket wheels and may contribute to a poor overall system performance or sensor damage. Customers are encouraged to use OEM wheels to assure proper TPM feature operation. Using aftermarket tire sealants may cause the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) sensor to become inoperable. After using an aftermarket tire sealant it is recommended that you take your vehicle to your authorized dealer to have your sensor function checked. After inspecting or adjusting the tire pressure always reinstall the valve stem cap. This will prevent moisture and dirt from entering the valve stem, which could damage the TPMS sensor. INSUFFICIENT TIRE PRESSURE INDICATION If an insufficient pressure value is detected on one or more tires, the warning light in the instrument cluster will display alongside the dedicated messages, the system will highlight the tire or tires with insufficient pressure graphically, and an acoustic signal will be emitted. In this case, stop the vehicle, check the inflation pressure of each tire, and inflate the necessary tire or tires to the correct cold inflation pressure value, shown on the display or in the dedicated TPMS menu. TPMS TEMPORARILY DISABLED TPMS Check Message When a system fault is detected, the “Tire Pressure Monitoring Telltale Light” will flash on and off for 75 seconds, and then remain on solid. The system fault will also sound a chime. If the ignition is cycled, this sequence will repeat, provided that the system fault still exists. The “Tire Pressure Monitoring Telltale Light” will turn off when the fault condition no longer exists. A system fault can occur due to any of the following: Jamming due to electronic devices or driving next to facilities emitting the same radio frequencies as the TPMS sensors. Installing some form of aftermarket window tinting that affects radio wave signals. Accumulation of snow or ice around the wheels or wheel housings. Using tire chains on the vehicle. Using wheels/tires not equipped with TPMS sensors. After the punctured tire has been repaired with the original tire sealant contained in the Tire Repair Kit, the previous condition must be restored so that the warning light is off during normal driving. TPMS Deactivation The TPMS can be deactivated by replacing all four wheel and tire assemblies (road tires) with wheel and tire assemblies that do not have TPMS Sensors, such as when installing winter wheel and tire assemblies on your vehicle. To deactivate the TPMS, first replace all four wheel and tire assemblies (road tires) with tires not equipped with Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPM) Sensors. Then, drive the vehicle for 20 minutes above 15 mph (24 km/h). The TPMS will chime, the "TPM Telltale Light" will flash on and off for 75 seconds and then remain on. The instrument cluster will display the “SERVICE TPM SYSTEM” message and then display dashes (--) in place of the pressure values. Beginning with the next ignition switch cycle, the TPMS will no longer chime or display the “SERVICE TPM SYSTEM” message in the instrument cluster. Instead, dashes (--) will remain in place of the pressure values. To reactivate the TPMS, replace all four wheel and tire assemblies (road tires) with tires equipped with TPM sensors. Then, drive the vehicle for up to 20 minutes above 15 mph (24 km/h). The TPMS will chime, the "TPM Telltale Light" will flash on and off for 75 seconds and then turn off. The instrument cluster will display the “SERVICE TPM SYSTEM” message and then display pressure values in place of the dashes. On the next ignition switch cycle the "SERVICE TPM SYSTEM" message will no longer be displayed, as long as no system fault exists. 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 underinflated tire will cause the tire to overheat, and can lead to tire failure. Underinflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability. 103 SAFETY The TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure using an accurate tire pressure gauge, even if underinflation has not reached the level to trigger illumination of the “Tire Pressure Monitoring Telltale Light”. Seasonal temperature changes will affect tire pressure, and the TPMS will monitor the actual tire pressure in the tire.

If you are not sure, ask your authorized dealer. Important Safety Precautions Please pay close attention to the information in this section. It tells you how to use your restraint system properly, to keep you and your passengers as safe as possible. Here are some simple steps you can take to minimize the risk of harm from a deploying air bag: 1. Children 12 years old and under should always ride buckled up in a vehicle with a rear seat. 2. If a child from 2 to 12 years old (not in a rear-facing child restraint) must ride in the front passenger seat, move the seat as far back as possible and use the proper child restraint (refer to “Child Restraints” in this section for further information). 3. Children that are not big enough to wear the vehicle seat belt properly (refer to “Child Restraints” in this section for further information) should be secured in a vehicle with a 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 a vehicle with a rear seat. 4. Never allow children to slide the shoulder belt behind them or under their arm. 5. You should read the instructions provided with your child restraint to make sure that you are using it properly. 6. All occupants should always wear their lap and shoulder belts properly. 7. The driver and front passenger seats should be moved back as far as practical to allow the front air bags room to inflate. 8. Do not lean against the door or window. If your vehicle has side air bags, and deployment occurs, the side air bags will inflate forcefully into the space between occupants and the door and occupants could be injured. 9. If the air bag system in this vehicle needs to be modified to accommodate a disabled person, refer to the “Customer Assistance” section for customer service contact information. Warning! Never place a rear-facing child restraint in front of an air bag. A deploying passenger front air bag can cause death or serious injury to a child 12 years or younger, including a child in a rear-facing child restraint. Only use a rear-facing child restraint in a vehicle with a rear seat. Seat Belt Systems Buckle up even though you are an excellent driver, even on short trips. Someone on the road may be a poor driver and could cause a collision that includes you. This can happen far away from home or on your own street. Research has shown that seat belts save lives, and they can reduce the seriousness of injuries in a collision. Some of the worst injuries happen when people are thrown from the vehicle. Seat belts reduce the possibility of ejection and the risk of injury caused by striking the inside of the vehicle. Everyone in a motor vehicle should be belted at all times. Enhanced Seat Belt Use Reminder System (BeltAlert) Driver And Passenger BeltAlert — If Equipped BeltAlert is a feature intended to remind the driver and outboard front seat passenger (if equipped with outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert) to buckle their seat belts. The Belt Alert feature is active whenever the ignition switch is in the START or ON/RUN position. Initial Indication If the driver is unbuckled when the ignition switch is first in the START or ON/RUN position, a chime will signal for a few seconds. If the driver or outboard front seat passenger (if equipped with outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert) is unbuckled when the ignition switch is first in the START or ON/RUN position the Seat Belt Reminder Light will turn on and remain on until both outboard front seat belts are buckled. The outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert is not active when an outboard front passenger seat is unoccupied. BeltAlert Warning Sequence The BeltAlert warning sequence is activated when the vehicle is moving above a specified vehicle speed range and the driver or outboard front seat passenger is unbuckled (if equipped with outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert) (the outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert is not active when the outboard front passenger seat is unoccupied). The BeltAlert warning sequence starts by blinking the Seat Belt Reminder Light and sounding an intermittent chime. Once the BeltAlert warning sequence has completed, the Seat Belt Reminder Light will remain on until the seat belts are buckled. The BeltAlert warning sequence may repeat based on vehicle speed until the driver and occupied outboard front seat passenger seat belts are buckled. The driver should instruct all occupants to buckle their seat belts. Change Of Status If the driver or outboard front seat passenger (if equipped with outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert) unbuckles their seat belt while the vehicle is traveling, the BeltAlert warning sequence will begin until the seat belts are buckled again. The outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert is not active when the outboard front passenger seat is unoccupied. BeltAlert may be triggered when an animal or other items are 105 SAFETY placed on the outboard front passenger seat or when the seat is folded flat (if equipped). It is recommended that pets be restrained in the rear seat (if equipped) in pet harnesses or pet carriers that are secured by seat belts, and cargo is properly stowed. BeltAlert can be activated or deactivated by your authorized dealer. FCA US LLC does not recommend deactivating BeltAlert. Note: If BeltAlert has been deactivated and the driver or outboard front seat passenger (if equipped with outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert) is unbuckled the Seat Belt Reminder Light will turn on and remain on until the driver and outboard front seat passenger seat belts are buckled. Lap/Shoulder Belts All seating positions in your vehicle are equipped with lap/shoulder belts. The seat belt webbing retractor will lock only during very sudden stops or collisions. This feature allows the shoulder part of the seat belt to move freely with you under normal conditions. However, in a collision the seat belt will lock and reduce your risk of striking the inside of the vehicle or being thrown out of the vehicle. 106 Warning! Relying on the air bags alone could lead to more severe injuries in a collision. The air bags work with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In some collisions, the air bags won’t deploy at all. Always wear your seat belt even though you have air bags. In a collision, you and your passengers can suffer much greater injuries if you are not properly buckled up. You can strike the interior of your vehicle or other passengers, or you can be thrown out of the vehicle. Always be sure you and others in your vehicle are buckled up properly. It is dangerous to ride in a cargo area, inside or outside of a vehicle. In a collision, people riding in these areas are more likely to be seriously injured or killed. Do not allow people to ride in any area of your vehicle that is not equipped with seats and seat belts. Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly. Occupants, including the driver, should always wear their seat belts whether or not an air bag is also provided at their seating position to minimize the risk of severe injury or death in the event of a crash. Wearing your seat belt incorrectly could make your injuries in a collision much worse. You might suffer internal injuries, or you could even slide out of the seat belt. Follow these instructions to wear your seat belt safely and to keep your passengers safe, too. Two people should never be belted into a single seat belt. People belted together can crash into one another in a collision, hurting one another badly. Never use a lap/shoulder belt or a lap belt for more than one person, no matter what their size. Warning! A lap belt worn too high can increase the risk of injury in a collision. The seat belt forces won’t be at the strong hip and pelvic bones, but across your abdomen. Always wear the lap part of your seat belt as low as possible and keep it snug. A twisted seat belt may not protect you properly. In a collision, it could even cut into you. Be sure the seat belt is flat against your body, without twists. If you can’t straighten a seat belt in your vehicle, take it to your authorized dealer immediately and have it fixed. A seat belt that is buckled into the wrong buckle will not protect you properly. The lap portion could ride too high on your body, possibly causing internal injuries. Always buckle your seat belt into the buckle nearest you. A seat belt that is too loose will not protect you properly. In a sudden stop, you could move too far forward, increasing the possibility of injury. Wear your seat belt snugly. A seat belt that is worn under your arm is dangerous. Your body could strike the inside surfaces of the vehicle in a collision, increasing head and neck injury. A seat belt worn under the arm can cause internal injuries. Ribs aren’t as strong as shoulder bones. Wear the seat belt over your shoulder so that your strongest bones will take the force in a collision. 3. When the seat belt is long enough to fit, insert the latch plate into the buckle until you hear a “click.” A shoulder belt placed behind you will not protect you from injury during a collision. You are more likely to hit your head in a collision if you do not wear your shoulder belt. The lap and shoulder belt are meant to be used together. A frayed or torn seat belt could rip apart in a collision and leave you with no protection. Inspect the seat belt system periodically, checking for cuts, frays, or loose parts. Damaged parts must be replaced immediately. Do not disassemble or modify the seat belt system. Seat belt assemblies must be replaced after a collision. Lap/Shoulder Belt Operating Instructions 1. Enter the vehicle and close the door. Sit back and adjust the seat. 2. The seat belt latch plate is above the back of the front seat, and next to your arm in the rear seat (for vehicles equipped with a rear seat). Grasp the latch plate and pull out the seat belt. Slide the latch plate up the webbing as far as necessary to allow the seat belt to go around your lap. 6. To release the seat belt, push the red button on the buckle. The seat belt will automatically retract to its stowed position. If necessary, slide the latch plate down the webbing to allow the seat belt to retract fully. Lap/Shoulder Belt Untwisting Procedure Use the following procedure to untwist a twisted lap/shoulder belt. 1. Position the latch plate as close as possible to the anchor point. 06046S0001NA Seat Belt Latch Plate Inserted Into Seat Belt Buckle 4. Position the lap belt so that it is snug and lies low across your hips, below your abdomen. To remove slack in the lap belt portion, pull up on the shoulder belt. To loosen the lap belt if it is too tight, tilt the latch plate and pull on the lap belt. A snug seat belt reduces the risk of sliding under the seat belt in a collision. 5. Position the shoulder belt across the shoulder and chest with minimal, if any slack so that it is comfortable and not resting on your neck. The retractor will withdraw any slack in the shoulder belt. 2. At about 6 to 12 inches (15 to 30 cm) above the latch plate, grasp and twist the seat belt webbing 180 degrees to create a fold that begins immediately above the latch plate. 3. Slide the latch plate upward over the folded webbing. The folded webbing must enter the slot at the top of the latch plate. 4. Continue to slide the latch plate up until it clears the folded webbing and the seat belt is no longer twisted. 107 SAFETY Second Row Center Seat Belt Operating Instructions belt to detach from the lower anchor when the seat is folded. The mini-latch plate and regular latch plate can then be stored out of the way in the parcel tray for added convenience to open up utilization of the storage areas behind the front seats when the seat is not occupied. 3. Route the shoulder belt to the inside of the right head restraint. 4. When the seat belt is long enough to fit, insert the mini-latch plate into the mini-buckle until you hear a “click.” Warning! 2. Grasp the mini-latch plate and pull the seat belt over the seat. 5. Sit back in seat. Slide the regular latch plate up the webbing as far as necessary to allow the seat belt to go around your lap. 06056S0002EM 1 — Seat Belt Buckle 2 — Seat Belt Latch Plate 108 3 — Mini 5 — Mini Latch Plate Buckle 4 — Mini Release Seat Belt Buckle The second row center seat belt features a seat belt with a mini-latch plate and buckle, which allows the seat 9. To release the seat belt, push the red button on the buckle. 10. To disengage the mini-latch plate from the mini-buckle for storage, insert the regular latch plate into the black button on the top of the mini-buckle. The seat belt will automatically retract to its stowed position. If necessary, slide the latch plate down the webbing to allow the seat belt to retract fully. Insert the mini-latch plate and regular latch plate into its stowed position. 1. Remove the mini-latch plate and regular latch plate from its stowed position in the right rear side trim panel. Second Row Seat Belts 8. 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 seat belt. 6. When the seat belt is long enough to fit, insert the latch plate into the buckle until you hear a “click.” 7. 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, pull on the lap belt. A snug seat belt reduces the risk of sliding under the seat belt in a collision. If the mini-latch plate and mini-buckle are not properly connected when the seat belt is used by an occupant, the seat belt will not be able to provide proper restraint and will increase the risk of injury in a collision. When reattaching the mini-latch plate and mini-buckle, ensure the seat belt webbing is not twisted. If the webbing is twisted, follow the preceding procedure to detach the mini-latch plate and mini-buckle, untwist the webbing, and reattach the mini-latch plate and mini-buckle. Seat Belts And Pregnant Women 0226075266 Pregnant Women And Seat Belts Seat belts must be worn by all occupants including pregnant women: the risk of injury in the event of an accident is reduced for the mother and the unborn child if they are wearing a seat belt. Position the lap belt snug and low below the abdomen and across the strong bones of the hips. Place the shoulder belt across the chest and away from the neck. Never place the shoulder belt behind the back or under the arm. Seat Belt Pretensioner The front seat belt system is equipped with pretensioning devices that are designed to remove slack from the seat belt in the event of a collision. These devices may improve the performance of the seat belt by removing slack from the seat belt early in a collision. Pretensioners work for all size occupants, including those in child restraints. Note: These devices are not a substitute for proper seat belt placement by the occupant. The seat belt still must be worn snugly and positioned properly. The pretensioners are triggered by the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC). Like the air bags, the pretensioners are single use items. A deployed pretensioner or a deployed air bag must be replaced immediately. Energy Management Feature The front seat belt system is equipped with an Energy Management feature that may help further reduce the risk of injury in the event of a collision. The seat belt system has a retractor assembly that is designed to release webbing in a controlled manner. Switchable Automatic Locking Retractors (ALR) The seat belts in the passenger seating positions are equipped with a Switchable Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) which is used to secure a child restraint system. For additional information, refer to “Installing Child Restraints Using The Vehicle Seat Belt” under the “Child Restraints” section of this manual. The figure below illustrates the locking feature for each seating position. 06086S0102NA ALR — Switchable Automatic Locking Retractor If the passenger seating position is equipped with an ALR and is being used for normal usage, only pull the seat belt webbing out far enough to comfortably wrap around the occupant’s mid-section so as to not activate the ALR. If the ALR is activated, you will hear a clicking sound as the seat belt retracts. Allow the webbing to retract completely in this case and then carefully pull out only the amount of webbing necessary to comfortably wrap around the occupant’s mid-section. Slide the latch plate into the buckle until you hear a "click." In Automatic Locking Mode, the shoulder belt is automatically pre-locked. The seat belt will still retract to remove any slack in the shoulder belt. Use the Automatic Locking Mode anytime a child restraint is installed in a seating position that has a seat belt 109 SAFETY with this feature. Children 12 years old and under should always be properly restrained in a vehicle with a rear seat. Warning! Never place a rear-facing child restraint in front of an air bag. A deploying passenger front air bag can cause death or serious injury to a child 12 years or younger, including a child in a rear-facing child restraint. Only use a rear-facing child restraint in a vehicle with a rear seat. How To Engage The Automatic Locking Mode 1. Buckle the combination lap and shoulder belt. 2. Grasp the shoulder portion and pull downward until the entire seat belt is extracted. 3. Allow the seat belt to retract. As the seat belt retracts, you will hear a clicking sound. This indicates the seat belt is now in the Automatic Locking Mode. How To Disengage The Automatic Locking Mode Unbuckle the combination lap/shoulder belt and allow it to retract completely to disengage the Automatic Locking Mode and activate the vehicle sensitive (emergency) locking mode. 110 Warning! The seat belt assembly must be replaced if the switchable Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) feature or any other seat belt function is not working properly when checked according to the procedures in the Service Manual. Failure to replace the seat belt assembly could increase the risk of injury in collisions. Do not use the Automatic Locking Mode to restrain occupants who are wearing the seat belt or children who are using booster seats. The locked mode is only used to install rear-facing or forward-facing child restraints that have a harness for restraining the child. Bag System Components. Your vehicle may be equipped with the following Air Bag System Components: Air Bag System Components Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) Air Bag Warning Light Steering Wheel and Column Instrument Panel Knee Impact Bolsters Driver and Front Passenger Air Bags Supplemental Side Air Bags Supplemental Knee Air Bags Front and Side Impact Sensors Seat Belt Pretensioners Seat Track Position Sensors Supplemental Restraint Systems (SRS) Some of the safety features described in this section may be standard equipment on some models, or may be optional equipment on others. If you are not sure, ask your authorized dealer. The air bag system must be ready to protect you in a collision. The Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) monitors the internal circuits and interconnecting wiring associated with the electrical Air Seat Belt Buckle Switch Air Bag Warning Light The ORC monitors the readiness of the electronic parts of the air bag system whenever the ignition switch is in the START or ON/RUN position. If the ignition switch is in the OFF position or in the ACC position, the air bag system is not on and the air bags will not inflate. The ORC contains a backup power supply system that may deploy the air bag system even if the battery loses power or it becomes disconnected prior to deployment. The ORC turns on the Air Bag Warning Light in the instrument panel for approximately four to eight seconds for a self-check when the ignition switch is first in the ON/RUN position. After the self-check, the Air Bag Warning Light will turn off. If the ORC detects a malfunction in any part of the system, it turns on the Air Bag Warning Light, either momentarily or continuously. A single chime will sound to alert you if the light comes on again after initial startup. The ORC also includes diagnostics that will illuminate the instrument panel Air Bag Warning Light if a malfunction is detected that could affect the air bag system. The diagnostics also record the nature of the malfunction. While the air bag system is designed to be maintenance free, if any of the following occurs, have an authorized dealer service the air bag system immediately. The Air Bag Warning Light remains on after the four to eight-second interval. Redundant Air Bag Warning Light The Air Bag Warning Light comes on intermittently or remains on while driving. 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. If a fault with the Air Bag Warning Light is detected, which could affect the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), the Redundant Air Bag Warning Light will illuminate on the instrument panel. The Redundant Air Bag Warning Light will stay on until the fault is cleared. In addition, a single chime will sound to alert you that the Redundant Air Bag Warning Light has come on and a fault has been detected. If the Redundant Air Bag Warning Light comes on intermittently or remains on while driving have an authorized dealer service the vehicle immediately. For additional information regarding the Redundant Air Bag Warning Light, refer to “Warning Lights And Messages” in the “Getting To Know Your Instrument Panel” section of this manual. Warning! Ignoring the Air Bag Warning Light in your instrument panel could mean you won’t have the air bag system to protect you in a collision. If the light does not come on as a bulb check when the ignition is first turned on, stays on after you start the vehicle, or if it comes on as you drive, have an authorized dealer service the air bag system immediately. The Air Bag Warning Light does not come on during the four to eight seconds when the ignition switch is first in the ON/RUN position. 111 SAFETY Front Air Bags This vehicle has front air bags and lap/shoulder belts for both the driver and front passenger. The front air bags are a supplement to the seat belt restraint systems. The driver front air bag is mounted in the center of the steering wheel. The passenger front air bag is mounted in the instrument panel, above the glove compartment. The words “SRS AIRBAG” or “AIRBAG” are embossed on the air bag covers. Driver And Passenger Front Air Bag Features 06106S0002EM Passenger Air Bag Warning! Being too close to the steering wheel or instrument panel during 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. 06106S0001EM Driver Air Bag Never place a rear-facing child restraint in front of an air bag. A deploying passenger front air bag can cause death or serious injury to a child 12 years or younger, including a child in a rear-facing child restraint. Only use a rear-facing child restraint in a vehicle with a rear seat. 112 The Advanced Front Air Bag system has multistage driver and front passenger air bags. This system provides output appropriate to the severity and type of collision as determined by the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC), which may receive information from the front impact sensors (if equipped) or other system components. The first stage inflator is triggered immediately during an impact that requires air bag deployment. A low energy output is used in less severe collisions. A higher energy output is used for more severe collisions. This vehicle may be equipped with a driver and/or front passenger seat belt buckle switch that detects whether the driver or front passenger seat belt is buckled. The seat belt buckle switch may adjust the inflation rate of the Advanced Front Air Bags. This vehicle may be equipped with driver and/or front passenger seat track position sensors that may adjust the inflation rate of the Advanced Front Air Bags based upon seat position. Warning! No objects should be placed over or near the air bag on the instrument panel or steering wheel because any such objects could cause harm if the vehicle is in a collision severe enough to cause the air bag to inflate. Do not put anything on or around the air bag covers or attempt to open them manually. You may damage the air bags and you could be injured because the air bags may no longer be functional. The protective covers for the air bag cushions are designed to open only when the air bags are inflating. Relying on the air bags alone could lead to more severe injuries in a collision. The air bags work with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In some collisions, air bags won’t deploy at all. Always wear your seat belts even though you have air bags. Front Air Bag Operation Front Air Bags are designed to provide additional protection by supplementing the seat belts. Front air bags are not expected to reduce the risk of injury in rear, side, or rollover collisions. The front air bags will not deploy in all frontal collisions, including some that may produce substantial vehicle damage — for example, some pole collisions, truck underrides, and angle offset collisions. On the other hand, depending on the type and location of impact, front air bags may deploy in crashes with little vehicle front-end damage but that produce a severe initial deceleration. Because air bag sensors measure vehicle deceleration over time, vehicle speed and damage by themselves are not good indicators of whether or not an air bag should have deployed. Seat belts are necessary for your protection in all collisions, and also are needed to help keep you in position, away from an inflating air bag. When the ORC detects a collision requiring the front air bags, it signals the inflator units. A large quantity of non-toxic gas is generated to inflate the front air bags. The steering wheel hub trim cover and the upper right side of the instrument panel separate and fold out of the way as the air bags inflate to their full size. The front air bags fully inflate in less time than it takes to blink your eyes. The front air bags then quickly deflate while helping to restrain the driver and front passenger. Knee Impact Bolsters The Knee Impact Bolsters help protect the knees of the driver and front passenger, and position the front occupants for improved interaction with the front air bags. Warning! Do not drill, cut, or tamper with the knee impact bolsters in any way. Do not mount any accessories to the knee impact bolsters such as alarm lights, stereos, citizen band radios, etc. Supplemental Driver And Front Passenger Knee Air Bags This vehicle is equipped with a Supplemental Driver Knee Air Bag mounted in the instrument panel below the steering column and a Supplemental Passenger Knee Air Bag mounted in the instrument panel below the glove compartment. 113 SAFETY The Supplemental Knee Air Bags provide enhanced protection during a frontal impact by working together with the seat belts, pretensioners, and front air bags. Supplemental Side Air Bags Your vehicle is equipped with two types of side air bags: 1. 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. speed and with such a high force that it could injure occupants if they are not seated properly, or if items are positioned in the area where the SAB inflates. Children are at an even greater risk of injury from a deploying air bag. Warning! Do not use accessory seat covers or place objects between you and the Side Air Bags; the performance could be adversely affected and/or objects could be pushed into you, causing serious injury. 06096S0102NA Driver Knee Air Bag 06106S0004EM 2. Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtains (SABICs): Located above the side windows. The trim covering the SABICs is labeled “SRS AIRBAG” or “AIRBAG.” Front Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Air Bag 06096S0103NA Front Passenger Knee Air Bag The SABs may help to reduce the risk of occupant injury during certain side impacts and/or vehicle rollover events, in addition to the injury reduction potential provided by the seat belts and body structure. When the SAB deploys, it opens the seam on the outboard side of the seatback’s trim cover. The inflating SAB deploys through the seat seam into the space between the occupant and the door. The SAB moves at a very high 114 06106S0005EM Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtain (SABIC) Label Location SABICs may help reduce the risk of head or other injuries to front and rear seat outboard occupants in certain side impacts and/or vehicle rollover events, in addition to the injury reduction potential provided by the seat belts and body structure. The SABICs deploy downward, covering the side windows. An inflating SABIC pushes the outside edge of the trim out of the way and covers the window. The SABICs inflate with enough force to injure occupants if they are not belted and seated properly, or if items are positioned in the area where the SABICs inflate. Children are at an even greater risk of injury from a deploying air bag. Warning! 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. 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. 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. Side Air Bags are a supplement to the seat belt restraint system. Side Air Bags deploy in less time than it takes to blink your eyes. Warning! Occupants, including children, who are up against or very close to Side Air Bags can be seriously injured or killed. Occupants, including children, should never lean on or sleep against the door, side windows, or area where the side air bags inflate, even if they are in an infant or child restraint. Seat belts (and child restraints where appropriate) are necessary for your protection in all collisions. They also help keep you in position, away from an inflating Side Air Bag. To get the best protection from the Side Air Bags, occupants must wear their seat belts properly and sit upright with their backs against the seats. Children must be properly restrained in a child restraint or booster seat that is appropriate for the size of the child. Warning! Side Air Bags need room to inflate. Do not lean against the door or window. Sit upright in the center of the seat. Being too close to the Side Air Bags during deployment could cause you to be severely injured or killed. Relying on the Side Air Bags alone could lead to more severe injuries in a collision. The Side Air Bags work with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In some collisions, Side Air Bags won’t deploy at all. Always wear your seat belt even though you have Side Air Bags. Note: Air bag covers may not be obvious in the interior trim, but they will open during air bag deployment. Side Impacts In side impacts, the side impact sensors aid the ORC in determining the appropriate response to impact events. The system is calibrated to deploy the Side Air Bags on the impact side of the vehicle during impacts that require Side Air Bag occupant protection. In side impacts, the Side Air Bags deploy independently; a left side impact deploys the left Side Air Bags only and a right side impact deploys the right Side Air Bags only. 115 SAFETY 116 The Side Air Bags will not deploy in all side collisions, including some collisions at certain angles, or some side collisions that do not impact the area of the passenger compartment. The Side Air Bags may deploy during angled or offset frontal collisions where the front air bags deploy. Rollover Events Side Air Bags are designed to activate in certain rollover events. The ORC determines whether the deployment of the Side Air Bags in a particular rollover event is appropriate, based on the severity and type of collision. Vehicle damage by itself is not a good indicator of whether or not Side Air Bags should have deployed. The Side Air Bags will not deploy in all rollover events. The rollover sensing system determines if a rollover event may be in progress and whether deployment is appropriate. In the event the vehicle experiences a rollover or near rollover event, and deployment of the Side Air Bags is appropriate, the rollover sensing system will also deploy the seat belt pretensioners on both sides of the vehicle. The SABICs may help reduce the risk of partial or complete ejection of vehicle occupants through side windows in certain rollover or side impact events. The Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) monitors the internal circuits and interconnecting wiring associated with electrical Air Bag System Components listed below: Air Bag System Components Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) Air Bag Warning Light Steering Wheel and Column Instrument Panel Knee Impact Bolsters Driver and Front Passenger Air Bags Supplemental Side Air Bags Supplemental Knee Air Bags Front and Side Impact Sensors Seat Belt Pretensioners Seat Track Position Sensors Seat Belt Buckle Switch If A Deployment Occurs The front air bags are designed to deflate immediately after deployment. Note: Front and/or side air bags will not deploy in all collisions. This does not mean something is wrong with the air bag system. If you do have a collision which deploys the air bags, any or all of the following may occur: The air bag material may sometimes cause abrasions and/or skin reddening to the occupants as the air bags deploy and unfold. The abrasions are similar to friction rope burns or those you might get sliding along a carpet or gymnasium floor. They are not caused by contact with chemicals. They are not permanent and normally heal quickly. However, if you haven’t healed significantly within a few days, or if you have any blistering, see your doctor immediately. As the air bags deflate, you may see some smoke-like particles. The particles are a normal by-product of the process that generates the non-toxic gas used for air bag inflation. These airborne particles may irritate the skin, eyes, nose, or throat. If you have skin or eye irritation, rinse the area with cool water. For nose or throat irritation, move to fresh air. If the irritation continues, see your doctor. If these particles settle on your clothing, follow the garment manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning. Do not drive your vehicle after the air bags have deployed. If you are involved in another collision, the air bags will not be in place to protect you. Warning! Deployed air bags and seat belt pretensioners cannot protect you in another collision. Have the air bags, seat belt pretensioners, and the seat belt retractor assemblies replaced by an authorized dealer immediately. Also, have the Occupant Restraint Controller System serviced as well. lights can be deactivated by pressing the hazard light button. Turn on the interior lights, which remain on as long as the battery has power or for 15 minutes from the intervention of the Enhanced Accident Response System. Unlock the power door locks. Turn off the Fuel Pump Heater (if equipped). Turn off the HVAC Blower Motor. Note: Air bag covers may not be obvious in the interior trim, but they will open during air bag deployment. After any collision, the vehicle should be taken to an authorized dealer immediately. Enhanced Accident Response System In the event of an impact, if the communication network remains intact, and the power remains intact, depending on the nature of the event, the ORC will determine whether to have the Enhanced Accident Response System perform the following functions: Cut off fuel to the engine. Flash hazard lights as long as the battery has power or until the hazard light button is pressed. The hazard STOP/OFF/LOCK. Carefully check the vehicle for fuel leaks in the engine compartment and on the ground near the engine compartment and fuel tank before resetting the system and starting the engine.

Modifications to any part of the air bag system could cause it to fail when you need it. You could be injured if the air bag system is not there to protect you. Do not modify the components or wiring, including adding any kind of badges or stickers to the steering wheel hub trim cover or the upper 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 air bag system yourself. Be sure to tell anyone who works on your vehicle that it has an air bag system. Do not attempt to modify any part of your air bag system. The air bag may inflate accidentally or may not function properly if modifications are made. Take your vehicle to an authorized dealer for any air bag system service. If your seat, including your trim cover and cushion, needs to be serviced in any way (including removal or 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 the air bag system for persons with disabilities, contact your authorized dealer. Event Data Recorder (EDR) This vehicle is equipped with an event data recorder (EDR). The main purpose of an EDR is to record, in certain crash or near crash-like situations, such as an air bag deployment or hitting a road obstacle, data that will assist in understanding how a vehicle’s systems performed. The EDR is designed to record data related to vehicle dynamics and safety systems for a short period of time, typically 30 seconds or less. The EDR in this vehicle is designed to record such data as: How various systems in your vehicle were operating; 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; and, How fast the vehicle was traveling. These data can help provide a better understanding of the circumstances in which crashes and injuries occur. Note: EDR data are recorded by your vehicle only if a non-trivial crash situation occurs; no data are recorded by the EDR under normal driving conditions and no personal data (e.g., name, gender, age, and crash location) are recorded. However, other parties, such as law enforcement, could combine the EDR data with the type of personally identifying data routinely acquired during a crash investigation. To read data recorded by an EDR, special equipment is required, and access to the vehicle or the EDR is needed. In addition to the vehicle manufacturer, other parties, such as law enforcement, that have the special equipment, can read the information if they have access to the vehicle or the EDR. Child Restraints Everyone in your vehicle needs to be buckled up at all times, including babies and children. Every state in the United States, and every Canadian province, requires that small children ride in proper restraint systems. This is the law, and you can be prosecuted for ignoring it. Children 12 years or younger should ride properly buckled up in a rear seat, if available. According to crash statistics, children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seats rather than in the front. 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. There are different sizes and types of restraints for children from newborn size to the child almost large enough for an adult safety belt. Always check the child seat Owner’s Manual to make sure you have the correct seat for your child. Carefully read and follow all the instructions and warnings in the child restraint Owner’s Manual and on all the labels attached to the child restraint. Before buying any restraint system, make sure that it has a label certifying that it meets all applicable Safety Standards. You should also make sure that you can install it in the vehicle where you will use it. Note: For additional information, refer to www.safercar.gov/parents/index.htm or call: 1–888–327–4236 Warning! In a collision, an unrestrained child can become a projectile inside the vehicle. The force required to hold even an infant on your lap could become so great that Canadian residents should refer to Transport Canada’s website for additional information: http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/ motorvehiclesafety/safedriverschildsafety-index-53.htm 119 SAFETY Summary Of Recommendations For Restraining Children In Vehicles Child Size, Height, Weight or Age Children who are two years old or younger and who have not reached the height or weight limits of their child restraint Either an Infant Carrier or a Convertible Child Restraint, facing rearward in the rear seat of the vehicle Small Children Children who are at least two years old or who have out-grown the height or weight limit of their rear-facing child restraint Forward-Facing Child Restraint with a five-point Harness, facing forward in the rear seat of the vehicle Larger Children Children who have out-grown their forward-facing child restraint, but are too small to properly fit the vehicle’s seat belt Belt Positioning Booster Seat and the vehicle seat belt, seated in the rear seat of the vehicle Children 12 years old or younger, who have out-grown the height or weight limit of their booster seat Vehicle Seat Belt, seated in the rear seat of the vehicle Infants and Toddlers Children Too Large for Child Restraints Infant And Child Restraints 120 Recommended Type of Child Restraint Safety experts recommend that children ride rear-facing in the vehicle until they are two years old or until they reach either the height or weight limit of their rear-facing child restraint. Two types of child restraints can be used rear-facing: infant carriers and convertible child seats. The infant carrier is only used rear-facing in the vehicle. It is recommended for children from birth until they reach the weight or height limit of the infant carrier. Convertible child seats can be used either rear-facing or forward-facing in the vehicle. Convertible child seats often have a higher weight limit in the rear-facing direction than infant carriers do, so they can be used rear-facing by children who have outgrown their infant carrier but are still less than at least two years old. Children should remain rear-facing until they reach the highest weight or height allowed by their convertible child seat. Warning! Never place a rear-facing child restraint in front of an air bag. A deploying passenger front air bag can cause death or serious injury to a child 12 years or younger, including a child in a rear-facing child restraint. Only use a rear-facing child restraint in a vehicle with a rear seat. Older Children And Child Restraints Children who are two years old or who have outgrown their rear-facing convertible child seat 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 are over two years old or who have outgrown the rear-facing weight or height limit of their rear-facing convertible child seat. Children should remain in a forward-facing child seat with a harness for as long as possible, up to the highest weight or height allowed by the child seat. All children whose weight or height is above the forward-facing limit for the child seat should use a belt-positioning booster seat until the vehicle’s seat belts fit properly. If the child cannot sit with knees bent over the vehicle’s seat cushion while the child’s back is against the seatback, they should use a belt-positioning booster seat. The child and belt-positioning booster seat are held in the vehicle by the seat belt. Warning! Improper installation can lead to failure of an infant or child restraint. It could come loose in a collision. The child could be badly injured or killed. Follow the child restraint manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or child restraint. After a child restraint is installed in the vehicle, do not move the vehicle seat forward or rearward because it can loosen the child restraint attachments. Remove the child restraint before adjusting the vehicle seat position. When the vehicle seat has been adjusted, reinstall the child restraint. When your child restraint is not in use, secure it in the vehicle with the seat belt or LATCH anchorages, or remove it from the vehicle. Do not leave it loose in the vehicle. In a sudden stop or accident, it could strike the occupants or seatbacks and cause serious personal injury. Children Too Large For Booster Seats Children who are large enough to wear the shoulder belt comfortably, and whose legs are long enough to bend over the front of the seat when their back is against the seatback, should use the seat belt in a rear seat. Use this simple 5-step test to decide whether the child can use the vehicle’s seat belt alone: 1. Can the child sit all the way back against the back of the vehicle seat? 2. Do the child’s knees bend comfortably over the front of the vehicle seat – while they are still sitting all the way back? 3. Does the shoulder belt cross the child’s shoulder between their neck and arm? 4. Is the lap part of the belt as low as possible, touching the child’s thighs and not their stomach? If the answer to any of these questions was “no,” then the child still needs to use a booster seat in this vehicle. If the child is using the lap/shoulder belt, check seat belt fit periodically and make sure the seat belt buckle is latched. A child’s squirming or slouching can move the belt out of position. If the shoulder belt contacts the face or neck, move the child closer to the center of the vehicle, or use a booster seat to position the seat belt on the child correctly. Warning! Never allow a child to put the shoulder belt under an arm or behind their back. In a crash, the shoulder belt will not protect a child properly, which may result in serious injury or death. A child must always wear both the lap and shoulder portions of the seat belt correctly. 5. Can the child stay seated like this for the whole trip? 121 SAFETY Recommendations For Attaching Child Restraints Use Any Attachment Method Shown With An “X” Below Restraint Type Combined Weight of the Child + Child Restraint Rear-Facing Child Restraint Up to 65 lbs (29.5 kg) Rear-Facing Child Restraint More than 65 lbs (29.5 kg) Forward-Facing Child Restraint Up to 65 lbs (29.5 kg) Forward-Facing Child Restraint More than 65 lbs (29.5 kg) Lower Anchors And Tethers For CHildren (LATCH) Restraint System 022668173 LATCH Label Your vehicle is equipped with the child restraint anchorage system called LATCH, which stands for Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren. 122 LATCH – Lower Anchors Only Seat Belt Only X X LATCH – Lower Anchors + Top Tether Anchor Seat Belt + Top Tether Anchor X X X X The LATCH system has three vehicle anchor points for installing LATCH-equipped child seats. There are two lower anchorages located at the back of the seat cushion where it meets the seatback and one top tether anchorage located behind the seating position. These anchorages are used to install LATCH-equipped child seats without using the vehicle’s seat belts. Some seating positions may have a top tether anchorage but no lower anchorages. In these seating positions, the seat belt must be used with the top tether anchorage to install the child restraint. Please see the following table for more information. LATCH Positions For Installing Child Restraints In This Vehicle 06086S0101NA LATCH Positions Lower Anchorage Symbol (2 Anchorages Per Seating Position) Top Tether Anchorage Symbol Frequently Asked Questions About Installing Child Restraints With LATCH 65 lbs (29.5 kg) 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). Can the LATCH anchorages and the seat belt be used together to attach a rear-facing or forward-facing child restraint? No Do not use the seat belt when you use the LATCH anchorage system to attach a rear-facing or forward-facing child restraint. Booster seats may be attached to the LATCH anchorages if allowed by the booster seat manufacturer. See your booster seat owner’s manual for more information. Can a child seat be installed in the center position using the inner LATCH lower anchorage? No Use the seat belt and tether anchor to install a child seat in the center seating position. Can two child restraints be attached using a common lower LATCH anchorage? No Never “share” a LATCH anchorage with two or more child restraints. If the center position does not have dedicated LATCH lower anchorages, use the seat belt to install a child seat in the center position next to a child seat using the LATCH anchorages in an outboard position. Can the rear-facing child restraint touch the back of the front passenger seat? Yes The child seat may touch the back of the front passenger seat if the child restraint manufacturer also allows contact. See your child restraint owner’s manual for more information. Can the head restraints be removed? Yes All rear passenger head restraints can be removed. What is the weight limit (child’s weight + weight of the child restraint) for using the LATCH anchorage system to attach the child restraint? 123 SAFETY Locating The LATCH Anchorages Locating The Upper Tether Anchorages The lower anchorages are round bars that are found at the rear of the seat cushion where it meets the seatback, below the anchorage symbols on the seatback. They are just visible when you lean into the rear seat to install the child restraint. You will easily feel them if you run your finger along the gap between the seatback and seat cushion. There are tether strap anchorages behind each rear seating position located in the panel between the rear seatback and the rear window. They are found under a plastic cover with the tether anchorage symbol on it. restraints will also be equipped with a tether strap. The tether strap will have a hook at the end to attach to the top tether anchorage and a way to tighten the strap after it is attached to the anchorage. Center Seat LATCH Warning! Do not install a child restraint in the center position using the LATCH system. This position is not approved for installing child seats using the LATCH attachments. You must use the seat belt and tether anchor to install a child seat in the center seating position. 06086S0104NA Never use the same lower anchorage to attach more than one child restraint. Please refer to “Installing The LATCH-Compatible Child Restraint System” for typical installation instructions. Upper Tether Anchorage Location 06086S0009EM LATCH Anchorage Locations 1 — LATCH Anchorage Bar 2 — LATCH Anchorage Locations 124 LATCH-compatible child restraint systems will be equipped with a rigid bar or a flexible strap on each side. Each will have a hook or connector to attach to the lower anchorage and a way to tighten the connection to the anchorage. Forward-facing child restraints and some rear-facing child Always follow the directions of the child restraint manufacturer when installing your child restraint. Not all child restraint systems will be installed as described here. To Install A LATCH-Compatible Child Restraint If the selected seating position has a Switchable Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) seat belt, stow the seat belt, following the instructions below. See the section “Installing Child Restraints Using The Vehicle Seat Belt” to check what type of seat belt each seating position has. 1. Loosen the adjusters on the lower straps and on the tether strap of the child seat so that you can more easily attach the hooks or connectors to the vehicle anchorages. 2. Place the child seat between the lower anchorages for that seating position. For some second row seats, you may need to recline the seat and/or raise the head restraint to get a better fit. If the rear seat can be moved forward and rearward in the vehicle, you may wish to move it to its rear-most position to make room for the child seat. You may also move the front seat forward to allow more room for the child seat. 3. Attach the lower hooks or connectors of the child restraint to the lower anchorages in the selected seating position. 4. If the child restraint has a tether strap, connect it to the top tether anchorage. See the section “Installing Child Restraints Using The Top Tether Anchorage” for directions to attach a tether anchor. 5. Tighten all of the straps as you push the child restraint rearward and downward into the seat. Remove slack in the straps according to the child restraint manufacturer’s instructions. 6. Test that the child restraint is installed tightly by pulling back and forth on the child seat at the belt path. It should not move more than 1 inch (25.4 mm) in any direction. How To Stow An Unused Switchable-ALR (ALR) Seat Belt: When using the LATCH attaching system to install a child restraint, stow all ALR seat belts that are not being used by other occupants or being used to secure child restraints. An unused belt could injure a child if they play with it and accidentally lock the seat belt retractor. Before installing a child restraint using the LATCH system, buckle the seat belt behind the child restraint and out of the child’s reach. If the buckled seat belt interferes with the child restraint installation, instead of buckling it behind the child restraint, route the seat belt through the child restraint belt path and then buckle it. Do not lock the seat belt. Remind all children in the vehicle that the seat belts are not toys and that they should not play with them. Warning! Improper installation of a child restraint to the LATCH anchorages can lead to failure of the restraint. The child could be badly injured or killed. Follow the child restraint manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or child restraint. Child restraint anchorages are designed to withstand only those loads imposed by correctly-fitted child restraints. Under no circumstances are they to be used for adult seat belts, harnesses, or for attaching other items or equipment to the vehicle. Installing Child Restraints Using The Vehicle Seat Belt Child restraint systems are designed to be secured in vehicle seats by lap belts or the lap belt portion of a lap/shoulder belt. Warning! Improper installation or failure to properly secure a child restraint can lead to failure of the restraint. The child could be badly injured or killed. 125 SAFETY Follow the child restraint manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or child restraint. The seat belts in the passenger seating positions are equipped with a Switchable Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) that is designed to keep the lap portion of the seat belt tight around the child restraint so that it is not necessary to use a locking clip. The ALR retractor can be “switched” into a locked mode by pulling all of the webbing out of the retractor and then letting the webbing retract back into the retractor. If it is locked, the ALR will make a clicking noise while the webbing is pulled back into the retractor. Refer to the “Automatic Locking Mode” description in “Switchable Automatic Locking Retractors (ALR)” under “Occupant Restraint Systems” for additional information on ALR. Please see the table below and the following sections for more information. Lap/Shoulder Belt Systems For Installing Child Restraints In This Vehicle 06086S0102NA Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) Locations ALR = Switchable Automatic Locking Retractor Top Tether Anchorage Symbol Frequently Asked Questions About Installing Child Restraints With Seat Belts 126 What is the weight limit (child’s weight + weight of the child restraint) for using the Tether Anchor with the seat belt to attach a forward facing child restraint? Weight limit of the Child Restraint 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. Can the rear-facing child restraint touch the back of the front passenger seat? Yes Contact between the front passenger seat and the child restraint is allowed, if the child restraint manufacturer also allows contact. Can the head restraints be removed? Yes All rear passenger head restraints can be removed. Can the buckle stalk be twisted to tighten the seat belt against the belt path of the child restraint? No Do not twist the buckle stalk in a seating position with an ALR retractor. Installing A Child Restraint With A Switchable Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR): Child restraint systems are designed to be secured in vehicle seats by lap belts or the lap belt portion of a lap/shoulder belt. Warning! Improper installation or failure to properly secure a child restraint can lead to failure of the restraint. The child could be badly injured or killed. Follow the child restraint manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or child restraint. 1. Place the child seat in the center of the seating position. For some second row seats, you may need to recline the seat and/or raise the head restraint to get a better fit. If the rear seat can be moved forward and rearward in the vehicle, you may wish to move it to its rear-most position to make room for the child seat. You may also move the front seat forward to allow more room for the child seat. 2. Pull enough of the seat belt webbing from the retractor to pass it through the belt path of the child restraint. Do not twist the belt webbing in the belt path. 3. Slide the latch plate into the buckle until you hear a “click.” 4. Pull on the webbing to make the lap portion tight against the child seat. 5. To lock the seat belt, pull down on the shoulder part of the belt until you have pulled all the seat belt webbing out of the retractor. Then, allow the webbing to retract back into the retractor. As the webbing retracts, you will hear a clicking sound. This means the seat belt is now in the Automatic Locking mode. 6. Try to pull the webbing out of the retractor. If it is locked, you should not be able to pull out any webbing. If the retractor is not locked, repeat step 5. 7. Finally, pull up on any excess webbing to tighten the lap portion around the child restraint while you push the child restraint rearward and downward into the vehicle seat. 8. If the child restraint has a top tether strap and the seating position has a top tether anchorage, connect the tether strap to the anchorage and tighten the tether strap. See the section “Installing Child Restraints Using the Top Tether Anchorage” for directions to attach a tether anchor. 9. Test that the child restraint is installed tightly by pulling back and forth on the child seat at the belt path. It should not move more than 1 inch (25.4 mm) in any direction. Any seat belt system will loosen with time, so check the belt occasionally, and pull it tight if necessary. Installing Child Restraints Using The Top Tether Anchorage: Warning! Do not attach a tether strap for a rear-facing car seat to any location in front of the car seat, including the seat frame or a tether anchorage. Only attach the tether strap of a rear-facing car seat to the tether anchorage that is approved for that seating position, located behind the top of the vehicle seat. See the section “Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH) Restraint System” for the location of approved tether anchorages in your vehicle. 1. Look behind the seating position where you plan to install the child restraint to find the tether anchorage. 127 SAFETY You may need to move the seat forward to provide better access to the tether anchorage. If there is no top tether anchorage for that seating position, move the child restraint to another position in the vehicle if one is available. 2. Rotate or lift the cover to access the anchor directly behind the seat where you are placing the child restraint. 4. Attach the tether strap hook of the child restraint to the top tether anchorage as shown in the diagram. 5. Remove slack in the tether strap according to the child restraint manufacturer’s instructions. 06086S0104NA 3. Route the tether strap to provide the most direct path for the strap between the anchor and the child seat. If your vehicle is equipped with adjustable rear head restraints, raise the head restraint, and where possible, route the tether strap under the head restraint and between the two posts. If not possible, lower the head restraint and pass the tether strap around the outboard side of the head restraint. 128 Transporting Passengers NEVER TRANSPORT PASSENGERS IN THE CARGO AREA. Warning! Warning! An incorrectly anchored tether strap could lead to increased head motion and possible injury to the child. Use only the anchorage position directly behind the child seat to secure a child restraint top tether strap. Upper Tether Anchorage Location SAFETY TIPS If your vehicle is equipped with a split rear seat, make sure the tether strap does not slip into the opening between the seatbacks as you remove slack in the strap. Transporting Pets Air Bags deploying in the front seat could harm your pet. An unrestrained pet will be thrown about and possibly injured, or injure a passenger during panic braking or in a collision. Pets should be restrained in the rear seat in pet harnesses or pet carriers that are secured by seat belts. Do not leave children or animals inside parked vehicles in hot weather. Interior heat build-up may cause serious injury or death. It is extremely dangerous to ride in a cargo area, inside or outside of a vehicle. In a collision, people riding in these areas are more likely to be seriously injured or killed. Do not allow people to ride in any area of your vehicle that is not equipped with seats and seat belts. Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly. Exhaust Gas Warning! Exhaust gases can injure or kill. They contain carbon monoxide (CO), which is colorless and odorless. Breathing it can make you unconscious and can eventually poison you. To avoid breathing (CO), follow these safety tips: Do not run the engine in a closed garage or in confined areas any longer than needed to move your vehicle in or out of the area. If you are required to drive with the trunk/liftgate/rear doors open, make sure that all windows are closed and the climate control BLOWER switch is set at high speed. DO NOT use the recirculation mode. If it is necessary to sit in a parked vehicle with the engine running, adjust your heating or cooling controls to force outside air into the vehicle. Set the blower at high speed. The best protection against carbon monoxide entry into the vehicle body is a properly maintained engine exhaust system. Whenever a change is noticed in the sound of the exhaust system, when exhaust fumes can be detected inside the vehicle, or when the underside or rear of the vehicle is damaged, have a competent mechanic inspect the complete exhaust system and adjacent body areas for broken, damaged, deteriorated, or mispositioned parts. Open seams or loose connections could permit exhaust fumes to seep into the passenger compartment. In addition, inspect the exhaust system each time the vehicle is raised for lubrication or oil change. Replace as required. Safety Checks You Should Make Inside The Vehicle Seat Belts Inspect the seat belt system periodically, checking for cuts, frays, and loose parts. Damaged parts must be replaced immediately. Do not disassemble or modify the system. Front seat belt assemblies must be replaced after a collision. Rear seat belt assemblies must be replaced after a collision if they have been damaged (i.e., bent retractor, torn webbing, etc.). If there is any question regarding seat belt or retractor condition, replace the seat belt. Air Bag Warning Light The Air Bag warning light will turn on for four to eight seconds as a bulb check when the ignition switch is first turned to ON/RUN. If the light is either not on during starting, stays on, or turns on while driving, have the system inspected at an authorized dealer as soon as possible. This light will illuminate with a single chime when a fault with the Air Bag Warning Light has been detected, it will stay on until the fault is cleared. If the light comes on intermittently or remains on while driving, have an authorized dealer service the vehicle immediately. Refer to “Occupant Restraint Systems” in “Safety” for further information. 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. Floor Mat Safety Information Always use floor mats designed to fit your vehicle. Only use a floor mat that does not interfere with the operation of the pedal assemblies. Only use a floor mat that is securely attached using the floor mat fasteners so it cannot slip out of position and interfere with the pedal assemblies or impair safe operation of your vehicle in other ways. Warning! An improperly attached, damaged, folded, or stacked floor mat, or damaged floor mat fasteners may cause your floor mat to interfere with the accelerator, brake, or clutch pedals and cause a loss of vehicle control. To prevent SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH: ALWAYS securely attach your floor mat using the floor mat fasteners. DO NOT install your floor mat upside down or turn your floor mat over. Lightly pull to confirm mat is secured using the floor mat fasteners on a regular basis. 129 SAFETY ALWAYS REMOVE THE EXISTING FLOOR MAT FROM THE VEHICLE before installing any other floor mat. NEVER install or stack an additional floor mat on top of an existing floor mat. ONLY install floor mats designed to fit your vehicle. NEVER install a floor mat that cannot be properly attached and secured to your vehicle. If a floor mat needs to be replaced, only use a FCA approved floor mat for the specific make, model, and year of your vehicle. ONLY use the driver’s side floor mat on the driver’s side floor area. To check for interference, with the vehicle properly parked with the engine off, fully depress the accelerator, the brake, and the clutch pedal (if present) to check for interference. If your floor mat interferes with the operation of any pedal, or is not secure to the floor, remove the floor mat from the vehicle and place the floor mat in your trunk. ONLY use the passenger’s side floor mat on the passenger’s side floor area. ALWAYS make sure objects cannot fall or slide into the driver’s side floor area when the vehicle is moving. Objects can become trapped under accelerator, brake, or clutch pedals and could cause a loss of vehicle control. NEVER place any objects under the floor mat (e.g., towels, keys, etc.). These objects could change the position of the floor mat and may cause interference with the accelerator, brake, or clutch pedals. 130 If the vehicle carpet has been removed and re-installed, always properly attach carpet to the floor and check the floor mat fasteners are secure to the vehicle carpet. Fully depress each pedal to check for interference with the accelerator, brake, or clutch pedals then re-install the floor mats. It is recommended to only use mild soap and water to clean your floor mats. After cleaning, always check your floor mat has been properly installed and is secured to your vehicle using the floor mat fasteners by lightly pulling mat. 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 or sidewall. Inspect the tread for cuts and cracks. Inspect sidewalls for cuts, cracks, and bulges. Check the wheel nuts for tightness. Check the tires (including spare) for proper cold inflation pressure. Lights Have someone observe the operation of brake lights and exterior lights while you work the controls. Check turn signal and high beam indicator lights on the instrument panel. Door Latches Check for proper closing, latching, and locking. Fluid Leaks Check area under vehicle after overnight parking for fuel, coolant, oil, or other fluid leaks. Also, if gasoline fumes are detected or if fuel, or brake fluid leaks are suspected. The cause should be located and corrected immediately. STARTING AND OPERATING Let’s get to the core of the vehicle, and see how you can explore its fullest potential.

Never press the accelerator pedal before starting the engine. If necessary, messages indicating the starting procedure can be shown in the display. Warning! When leaving the vehicle, always remove the key fob from the vehicle and lock your vehicle. Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle. Allowing children to be in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a number of reasons. A child or others could be seriously or fatally injured. Children should be warned not to touch the parking brake, brake pedal or the transmission gear selector. Do not leave the key fob in or near the vehicle, or in a location accessible to children. A child could operate power windows, other controls, or move the vehicle. Do not leave children or animals inside parked vehicles in hot weather. Interior heat build-up may cause serious injury or death. 132 Starting Procedure Proceed as follows: 1. Apply the electric park brake and set the gear selector to PARK (P) or NEUTRAL (N). 2. Fully depress the brake pedal without touching the accelerator. 3. Briefly push the ignition button. 4. If the engine doesn't start within a few seconds, you need to repeat the procedure. If the problem persists, contact an authorized dealer. Warning! Never pour fuel or other flammable liquid into the throttle body air inlet opening in an attempt to start the vehicle. This could result in 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 “Emergency Starting” in “In Case Of Emergency” for further information. Caution! To prevent damage to the starter, do not continuously crank the engine for more than 25 seconds at a time. Wait 60 seconds before trying again. Remote Starting System — If Equipped This system uses the key fob to start the engine conveniently from outside the vehicle while still maintaining security. The system has a range of at least 300 feet (91 meters). The remote starting system also activates the climate control (if equipped), the heated seats (if equipped), and the heated steering wheel (if equipped), depending on temperatures outside and inside of the vehicle. Note: The vehicle must be equipped with an automatic transmission in order to include remote start. Obstructions between the vehicle and key fob may reduce this range. How to use Remote Start All of the following conditions must be met before the engine will remote start: Gear selector in PARK (P). Doors closed. Hood closed. Trunk closed. Hazard switch off. Brake switch inactive (brake pedal not pressed). Battery at an acceptable charge level. PANIC button not pushed. System not disabled from previous remote start event. Vehicle alarm system indicator flashing. Ignition in the OFF mode (if equipped with keyless ignition system). Fuel level meets minimum requirement. Remote Start Comfort Systems — If Equipped When Remote Start is activated, the heated steering wheel and driver heated seat features will automatically turn on in cold weather. These features will stay on through the duration of remote start also until the ignition is cycled to the ON/RUN mode. Remote Start Windshield Wiper De–Icer Activation — If Equipped When remote start is active and the outside ambient temperature is less than 39°F (4°C), the Windshield Wiper De-Icer will be enabled. Exiting remote start will resume previous operation, except if the Windshield Wiper De-Icer is active. The Windshield Wiper De-Icer timer and operation will continue. Cold Weather Operation To prevent possible engine damage while starting at low temperatures, this vehicle will inhibit engine cranking when the ambient temperature is less than –22° F (–30° C) and the oil temperature sensor reading indicates an engine block heater has not been used. An externally-powered electric engine block heater is available as optional equipment or from your authorized dealer. The message “plug in engine heater” will be displayed in the instrument cluster when the ambient temperature is below 5° F (–15° C) at the time the engine is shut off as a reminder to avoid possible crank delays at the next cold start. Caution! Use of the recommended oil and adhering to the prescribed oil change intervals is important to prevent engine damage and ensure satisfactory starting in cold conditions. Extended Park Starting If the vehicle has not been started or driven for at least 35 days, it is advisable to follow the indications below. To start the engine, proceed as follows: 1. Briefly push the ignition button 2. If the engine does not start, wait five seconds and let the starter cool down and then repeat the starting procedure 3. If the engine does not start after eight attempts, let the starter cool down for at least 10 seconds, and then repeat the starting procedure If the problem persists, contact your authorized dealer. Note: After prolonged vehicle inactivity, very difficult starting, that can be noticed through rapid fatigue of the starter, might also be due to a discharged battery. In this case, see the "Emergency Starting" section in the "In Case Of Emergency" chapter. 133 STARTING AND OPERATING If Engine Fails To Start Starting the Engine with Key Fob Battery Run Down or Drained If the ignition does not respond when the button is pushed, the key fob battery might be run down or drained. Therefore, the system does not detect the presence of the key fob in the vehicle, and will display a dedicated message. In this case, follow the instructions outlined in "Starting With A Discharged Key Fob Battery" in the "Getting To Know Your Vehicle" chapter, and start the engine normally. Warning! Never pour fuel or other flammable liquid into the throttle body air inlet opening in an attempt to start the vehicle. This could result in 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 134 dangerous if done improperly. Refer to “Emergency Starting” in “In Case Of Emergency” for further information. Caution! To prevent damage to the starter, do not continuously crank the engine for more than 25 seconds at a time. Wait 60 seconds before trying again. After Starting — Warming Up The Engine Proceed as follows: Travel slowly, letting the engine run at a reduced RPM, without accelerating suddenly. It is recommended to wait until the digital engine coolant temperature indicator starts to rise for maximum performance. Stopping The Engine To stop the engine, proceed as follows: 1. Park the vehicle in a position that is not dangerous for oncoming traffic. 2. Engage the PARK (P) mode. 3. With engine idling, push the START/STOP button on the steering wheel to STOP the engine. Note: Do not leave the ignition in ON mode when the engine is off. To shut off the engine with vehicle speed greater than 5 mph (8 km/h), you must push and hold the ignition or push the START/STOP button three times consecutively within a few seconds. The engine will shut down, and the ignition will be placed in the ON mode With the keyless ignition system, it is possible to go away from the vehicle taking the key fob with you, without the engine switching off. The vehicle will inform about the absence of the key on board, only if the doors are closed. Stopping the engine (cycling from the ON to the STOP position) the accessories are still powered for about three minutes, or until a door is opened. When the ignition is in the STOP/OFF mode, the window switches remain active for three minutes. Opening a front door will cancel this function. After severe driving, idle the engine to allow the temperature inside the engine compartment to cool before shutting off the engine. Turbocharger Cool Down It is recommended before switching the vehicle off, to keep the engine idling for a few minutes so that the turbocharger can be suitably lubricated. This procedure is particularly recommended after severe driving. After a full load operation, keep the engine idling for three to five minutes before switching it off. This time allows the lubricating oil and the engine coolant to eliminate the excessive heat from combustion chamber, bearings, inner components and turbocharger. ENGINE BLOCK HEATER — IF EQUIPPED The engine block heater warms the engine and permits quicker starts in cold weather. Connect the cord to a 110-115 Volt AC electrical outlet with a grounded, three-wire extension cord. For ambient temperatures below 0°F (-18°C), the engine block heater is recommended. For ambient temperatures below -20°F (-29°C), the engine block heater is required. The engine block heater cord is routed under the hood, behind to the driver’s side headlamp. Follow the steps below to properly use the engine block heater: 1. Locate the engine block heater cord (access door on the passenger side wiper cowl). Note: The engine block heater cord is a factory installed option. If your vehicle is not equipped, heater cords are available from your authorized dealer. The engine block heater will require 110 Volts AC and 6.5 Amps to activate the heater element. The engine block heater must be plugged in at least 1 hour to have a warming effect on the engine and at least 4 hours to have a warming effect when ambient temperatures are below -20 F (-29 C) Warning! Remember to disconnect the engine block heater cord before driving. Damage to the 110-115 Volt electrical cord could cause electrocution. 2. Pull the cord to the front of the vehicle and plug it into a grounded, three-wire extension cord. 3. After the vehicle is running, properly stow away behind access door on the passenger side wiper cowl. 135 STARTING AND OPERATING ELECTRIC PARK BRAKE The vehicle is equipped with electric park brake to guarantee better use and optimal performance compared to a manually operated park brake. The electric parking brake features a switch located on the center console, a motor with caliper for each rear wheel, and an electronic control module. 07046S0001EM Electric Park Brake Switch The electric parking brake can be engaged in two ways: Manually, by pulling the switch on the center console. Automatically, in "Safe Hold" or "Auto Park Brake" conditions. Note: Normally, the electric parking brake is engaged automatically when the engine is stopped. This function can be deactivated/activated on the Information and Entertainment system 136 by selecting the following items in sequence on the main menu: "Settings", "Driver Assistance" and "Automatic Parking Brake". In addition to engaging the electric park brake, along with steering and positioning chocks in front of the wheels (when on a steep slope), you must always place the vehicle in the PARK (P) mode before leaving. Should the vehicle battery be faulty, the battery must be replaced in order to unlock the electric park brake. Engaging The Park Brake Manually Briefly pull the switch located on the center console to manually engage the electric park brake when the vehicle is stationary. Noise may be heard from the rear of the vehicle when engaging the electric parking brake. A slight movement of the brake pedal may be detected when engaging the electric parking brake with the brake pedal pressed. With the electric parking brake engaged, the BRAKE warning light on the instrument panel and the switch will illuminate. Caution! With the Electronic Parking Brake failure warning light on, some functions of the electric parking brake are deactivated. In this case the driver is responsible for brake activation and vehicle parking in complete safety conditions. If, under exceptional circumstances, the use of the brake is required with the vehicle in motion, keep the switch on the center console pulled as long as the brake action is necessary. The BRAKE warning light may turn on with the hydraulic system temporarily unavailable, in this case braking is controlled by the motors. The brake lights will also automatically turn on in the same way as for normal braking with the use of the brake pedal. Release the switch on the center console to stop the braking action with the vehicle in motion. If, through this procedure, the vehicle is braked until a speed below 1.9 mph (3 km/h) is reached and the switch is kept pulled, the park brake will definitively engage. Note: Driving the vehicle with the electric parking brake engaged, or using it several times to slow down the vehicle, may cause severe damage to the braking system. Disengaging The Electric Park Brake Manually In order to manually release the park brake, the ignition should be in the ON mode. Press the brake pedal, and then push the switch on the center console briefly. Noise may be heard from the rear of the vehicle, and a slight movement of the brake pedal may be detected during disengagement. After disengaging the electric parking brake, the BRAKE warning light on the instrument panel and the light on the switch will turn off. If the BRAKE warning light on the instrument panel remains on with the electric parking brake disengaged, this indicates a fault: in this case, contact an authorized dealer. Warning! Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle. Allowing children to be in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a number of reasons. A child or others could be seriously or fatally injured. Children should be warned not to touch the park brake, brake pedal or the gear selector. Do not leave the key fob in or near the vehicle or in a location accessible to children. A child could operate power windows, other controls, or move the vehicle. Be sure the park brake is fully disengaged before driving; failure to do so can lead to brake failure and a collision. Always fully apply the park brake when leaving your vehicle, or it may roll and cause damage or injury. Caution! Never use gear position PARK (P) instead of the electric parking brake. Always engage the electric parking brake when parking the vehicle to prevent injury or damage caused by the unexpected movement of the vehicle. Electric Park Brake Operating Modes The electric park brake may operate as follows: "Dynamic Operating Mode": this mode is activated by pulling the switch repeatedly while driving. "Static Engagement and Release Mode": with the vehicle stationary, the electric park brake can be activated by pulling the switch on the center console once. On the other hand, push the switch and the brake pedal at the same time to disengage the brake. "Drive Away Release" — if equipped: the electric park brake will automatically disengage with the driver side seat belt fastened and the detection of an action performed by the driver to move the vehicle (forward gear or reverse gear). "Safe Hold": if the vehicle speed is lower than 1.9 mph (3 km/h), the gear selector is not in PARK (P) position and the driver's intention of leaving the vehicle is detected, the electric park brake will automatically engage to hold the vehicle in safety conditions. "Auto Park Brake": if the vehicle speed is below 1.9 mph (3 km/h), the electric park brake will automatically engage when the gear selector is in PARK (P) position. The light on the switch located on the center console switches on together with the BRAKE warning light on the instrument panel when the park brake is engaged and applied to the wheels. Each automatic park brake engagement can be cancelled by pressing the switch on the center console and at the same time moving the gear selector for the transmission to position PARK (P). 137 STARTING AND OPERATING Safe Hold Safe Hold is a safety function that automatically engages the electric park brake in the event of a dangerous condition for the vehicle. The electric park brake engages automatically to prevent vehicle movement if: The vehicle speed is below 2 mph (3 km/h). A transmission operating mode different from PARK (P) is activated. The driver's seat belt is not fastened. The driver side door is open. No attempts to apply pressure on the brake pedal have been detected. The “Safe Hold” function can be temporarily disabled by pressing the switch located on the center console and the brake pedal at the same time, with the vehicle stationary and the driver side door open. Once disabled, the function will activate again when the vehicle speed reaches 12 mph (20 km/h) or the ignition is cycled to STOP and then to ON. AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION The vehicle can be equipped with an electronically controlled 8-speed automatic transmission where gear shifting automatically takes place, depending on the vehicle usage instantaneous parameters (vehicle speed, grade, and accelerator pedal position). The new transmission is an absolute innovation, as it can match the Stop/Start system with the traditional automatic transmissions with built-in torque converter. For further information, refer to the “Stop/Start” section within this chapter. Manual gear shifting can still occur thanks to the "sequential mode" position for the gear selector. Warning! It is dangerous to shift out of PARK or NEUTRAL if the engine speed is higher than idle speed. If your foot is not firmly pressing the brake pedal, the vehicle could accelerate quickly forward or in reverse. You could lose control of the vehicle and hit someone or something. Only shift into gear when the engine is idling normally and your foot is firmly pressing the brake pedal. Unintended movement of a vehicle could injure those in or near the vehicle. 138 As with all vehicles, you should never exit a vehicle while the engine is running. Before exiting a vehicle, always apply the park brake, shift the transmission into PARK, and turn the ignition STOP/OFF. When the ignition is in the STOP/OFF mode, the transmission is locked in PARK, securing the vehicle against unwanted movement. When leaving the vehicle, always make sure the ignition is in the STOP/OFF mode, remove the key fob from the vehicle, and lock the vehicle. Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle. Allowing children to be in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a number of reasons. A child or others could be seriously or fatally injured. Children should be warned not to touch the parking brake, brake pedal or the transmission gear selector. Do not leave the key fob in or near the vehicle (or in a location accessible to children), and do not leave the ignition in the AVV or ON mode. A child could operate power windows, other controls, or move the vehicle. Caution! Damage to the transmission may occur if the following precautions are not observed: Shift into or out of PARK or REVERSE only after the vehicle has come to a complete stop. Do not shift between PARK, REVERSE, NEUTRAL, or DRIVE when the engine is above idle speed. Before shifting into any gear, make sure your foot is firmly pressing the brake pedal. Display The following information is shown on the dedicated area of the display: In Automatic Mode: the active mode (P, R, N, D) and with "D" the current gear number. In Manual Drive Mode (Sequential): the mode (M), the current gear and the double or single gear shift request, both up and down (single or double arrow). Gear Selector The gear functioning is controlled by the gear selector, which can assume the following positions: P = PARK R = REVERSE N = NEUTRAL D = DRIVE, (automatic forward speed) AutoStick: + manually shift to higher gear; – manually shift to lower gear The positions diagram is illustrated on the top of the gear selector. 07076S0005EM Gear Selector 3 — Gear Selector Button 07076S0002EM Gear Selector Center Console 1 — Gear Selector 2 — PARK (P) Button 07076S0001EM Gear Display To select a mode, move the gear selector forward or backwards, together with pressing the brake pedal and button to engage REVERSE (R). The letter corresponding to the mode selected on the gear selector lights up and appears on the instrument cluster display. The gear selector is a joystick style shifting mechanism which returns to the center position automatically. It can be pushed forward twice and rearward twice, based on the starting condition. The PARK (P) mode can be enabled/disabled by pushing the PARK (P) button. To transition the vehicle into REVERSE (R) mode from DRIVE (D) mode, or into DRIVE (D) mode from REVERSE (R) mode, it is necessary to move the gear selector by pushing the gear selector button. 139 STARTING AND OPERATING When using AutoStick, activate it by moving the gear selector from DRIVE (D) to the left and then forward toward the - symbol or backward toward the + symbol and the gear is changed. To shift out of PARK (P), or to pass from position NEUTRAL (N) to position DRIVE (D) or REVERSE (R), the vehicle must be moving at a low speed or stopped, and the brake pedal must also be pressed. Warning! Note: DO NOT accelerate while shifting from position PARK (P) or NEUTRAL (N) to another position. After selecting a gear, wait a few seconds before accelerating. This precaution is particularly important with engine cold. Transmission Operating Modes PARK (P) The transmission is locked in this mode. The engine can be started in this mode. Note: Never try to engage PARK (P) mode when the vehicle is moving. Before leaving the vehicle, make sure this mode is engaged (letter P shown on the display and gear selector) and that the park brake is engaged. When parking on a flat surface, first engage the PARK (P) mode and then engage the electric park brake. 140 When parking uphill, before activating the PARK (P) mode, engage the electric park brake. Otherwise, it could be difficult to engage the (P) mode. To check that the PARK (P) mode is actually engaged, make sure (P) is illuminated on the display and on the gear selector. Never use the PARK position as a substitute for the park brake. Always apply the park brake fully when parked to guard against vehicle movement and possible injury or damage. Your vehicle could move and injure you and others if it is not in PARK. Check by trying to move the gear selector out of PARK with the brake pedal released. Make sure the transmission is in PARK before leaving the vehicle. It is dangerous to shift out of PARK or NEUTRAL if the engine speed is higher than idle speed. If your foot is not firmly pressing the brake pedal, the vehicle could accelerate quickly forward or in reverse. You could lose control of the vehicle and hit someone or something. Only shift into gear when the engine is idling normally and your foot is firmly pressing the brake pedal. Unintended movement of a vehicle could injure those in or near the vehicle. As with all vehicles, you should never exit a vehicle while the engine is running. Before exiting a vehicle, always apply the park brake, shift the transmission into PARK, and turn the ignition STOP/OFF. When the ignition is in the STOP/OFF mode, the transmission is locked in PARK, securing the vehicle against unwanted movement. When leaving the vehicle, always make sure the ignition is in the STOP/OFF mode, remove the key fob from the vehicle, and lock the vehicle. Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle. Allowing children to be in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a number of reasons. A child or others could be seriously or fatally injured. Children should be warned not to touch the park brake, brake pedal or the 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 in the ON mode. A child could operate power windows, other controls, or move the vehicle. Caution! Before moving the transmission gear selector out of PARK, you must push the ignition button to cycle from STOP/OFF mode to the ON mode, and also press the brake pedal. Otherwise, damage to the gear selector could result. DO NOT race the engine when shifting from PARK or NEUTRAL into another gear range, as this can damage the drivetrain. REVERSE (R) Select this mode only with the vehicle at a standstill. NEUTRAL (N) Use this range when the vehicle is standing for prolonged periods with the engine running. The engine may be started in this range. Apply the electric park brake and shift the transmission into PARK (P) if you must leave the vehicle. Warning! Do not coast in NEUTRAL and never turn off the ignition to coast down a hill. These are unsafe practices that limit your response to changing traffic or road conditions. You might lose control of the vehicle and have a collision. DRIVE (D) Use this mode in normal driving conditions. Shifting from DRIVE (D) to PARK (P) or REVERSE (R) modes must take place only after releasing the accelerator pedal, with vehicle at a standstill and brake pedal pressed. This mode ensures automatic engagement of the most suitable gears for driving needs and maximum fuel economy in terms of consumption. In this position, the transmission shifts the gears automatically, selecting the most suitable for forward driving among those available as you go. In this way the vehicle's optimal driving characteristics are provided for all conditions. AutoStick In the case of frequent shifting (e.g. for sport driving, when the vehicle is driven with a heavy load, on slopes, when towing heavy trailers), it is recommended to use the Autostick (sequential shifting) mode to select and keep a lower fixed ratio. In these conditions, the use of a lower gear improves vehicle performance, preventing overheating. It is possible to shift from DRIVE (D) mode to sequential mode regardless of vehicle speed. Activation Starting from DRIVE (D), move the selector to the left (– and + indication of the trim) to activate the sequential drive mode. The gear engaged will be shown on the display. Shifting is made by moving the gear selector forwards, towards symbol – or backwards, towards symbol +. Steering Wheel Shift Paddles — If Equipped The gear can also be manually shifted by using the paddles behind the steering wheel. Pull the right paddle (+) toward the steering wheel and release it to engage a higher gear, and perform the same operation with the left paddle (-) to engage a lower gear. 07076S0006EM Steering Wheel Shift Paddles Note: If only one manual shift is necessary, the letter (D) will remain on the display with the engaged gear next to it. Deactivation To deactivate the sequential driving mode, bring the gear selector back in position DRIVE (D) ("automatic" driving mode). 141 STARTING AND OPERATING Warning! Do not downshift for additional engine braking on a slippery surface. The drive wheels could lose their grip and the vehicle could skid, causing a collision or personal injury. Note: To select the correct gear for maximum deceleration (engine brake), just keep the gear paddle pulled (–): the transmission goes to an operating mode in which the vehicle can slow down easily. The vehicle will keep the gear selected by the driver until the safety conditions allow it. This means, for example, that the system will try to prevent the engine from switching off, automatically downshifting if the engine speed is too low. Automatic Transmission Limp Home Mode Transmission function is monitored electronically for abnormal conditions. If a condition is detected that could result in transmission damage, Transmission Limp Home Mode is activated. 142 In this condition, the transmission stays in fourth gear, regardless of the selected gear. Positions PARK (P), REVERSE (R) and NEUTRAL (N) still work. The symbol might light up in the instrument cluster. Temporary failure In the event of a momentary problem, the transmission can be reset to regain all forward gears by performing the following steps: 1. Stop the vehicle. 2. Shift the transmission into PARK (P), if possible. If not, shift the transmission to NEUTRAL (N). 3. Push and hold the ignition until the engine turns OFF. 4. Wait for about 10 seconds, then restart the engine. 5. Shift into the desired gear range. If the problem is no longer detected, the transmission will return to normal operation. Note: Even if the transmission can be reset, we recommend that you visit your authorized dealer at your earliest possible convenience. Your authorized dealer has diagnostic equipment to determine if the problem could reoccur. If the transmission cannot be reset, service is required at your authorized dealer. Brake/Transmission Shift Interlock System This vehicle is equipped with a Brake Transmission Shift Interlock system (BTSI) that holds the gear selector in PARK (P) unless the brakes are applied. This system prevents you from moving the gear selector from position PARK (P) unless the brakes are applied. To shift the transmission out of PARK (P), the ignition must be cycled to the AVV mode (engine running or not) and the brake pedal must be pressed. Brake/Transmission Shift Interlock Disabling Only if strictly necessary (e.g. pushing the vehicle, conveyor vehicle washing systems) inhibit the automatic activation of PARK (P) mode when stopping the engine, or proceed as described below: 1. Vehicle at a standstill. 2. NEUTRAL (N) mode activated. 3. Push the ignition button for at least three seconds. The automatic park brake engagement function when the engine is stopped can also be deactivated on the Information and Entertainment system by selecting the following functions on the main menu: "Settings", "Driver Assistance" and "Automatic Parking Brake". Important Notes Failure to comply with what is reported below may damage the transmission: Shift into PARK (P) mode only with the vehicle at a standstill. Select REVERSE (R) mode, or pass from REVERSE to another mode only with the vehicle at a standstill and engine idling. Do not change between PARK (P), REVERSE (R), NEUTRAL (N) or DRIVE (D) modes with engine running at a speed above idling. Before activating any transmission operating mode, fully depress the brake pedal. Note: The unexpected movement of the vehicle can injure the occupants or people nearby. Do not leave the vehicle with engine running: before getting out of the passenger compartment always engage the electric park brake, select the PARK (P) mode, stop the engine. Warning! It is dangerous to shift out of PARK or NEUTRAL if the engine speed is higher than idle speed. If your foot is not firmly pressing the brake pedal, the vehicle could accelerate quickly forward or in reverse. You could lose control of the vehicle and hit someone or something. Only shift into gear when the engine is idling normally and your foot is firmly pressing the brake pedal. Unintended movement of a vehicle could injure those in or near the vehicle. As with all vehicles, you should never exit a vehicle while the engine is running. Before exiting a vehicle, always apply the park brake, shift the transmission into PARK, and turn the ignition STOP/OFF. When the ignition is in the STOP/OFF mode, the transmission is locked in PARK, securing the vehicle against unwanted movement. When leaving the vehicle, always make sure the ignition is in the STOP/OFF mode, remove the key fob from the vehicle, and lock the vehicle. Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle. Allowing children to be in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a number of reasons. A child or others could be seriously or fatally injured. Children should be warned not to touch the parking brake, brake pedal or the transmission gear selector. Caution! Only engage the gear with engine at idling while fully depressing the brake pedal. If the transmission temperature exceeds the normal operating limits, the transmission control unit may change the gear engagement order and reduce the drive torque. If the transmission overheats, it could operate incorrectly until it cools down. When using the vehicle with extremely low external temperatures, the transmission operation may change depending on the engine and transmission temperature, as well as vehicle speed. Activation of the torque converter clutch and of the eighth gear is inhibited until the transmission oil is correctly warmed up. Complete operation of the transmission will be enabled as soon as the fluid temperature reaches the predefined value. Do not leave the key fob in or near the vehicle (or in a location accessible to children), and do not leave the ignition in the AVV or ON mode. A child could operate power windows, other controls, or move the vehicle. 143 STARTING AND OPERATING ALFA DNA SELECTOR Alfa DNA System This vehicle is equipped with an Alfa DNA system selector (located on the center console). There are four modes of operation to be selected according to driving style and road conditions: On the instrument panel display, the different modes are characterized by different colors: Natural - Blue Dynamic - Red Advanced Efficiency - Green Activation It is activated by rotating the selector to the letter "n", the displays light up in blue. 07116S0002EM Natural Mode 07076S0003EM Mode Display 07076S0004BASE Alfa DNA System Selector d = Dynamic (sports driving mode). n = Natural (mode for driving in normal conditions). a = Advanced Efficiency (ECO driving mode for maximum fuel savings). = Adjusts the calibration of the active suspension (if equipped). The symbol of the active mode lights up in red on the selector. Each driving mode is graphically different in frame color and contents of each individual "performance" screen. The "Performance" screen graphically reproduces some parameters closely linked to the efficiency of the driving style, with a view to limiting consumption. Driving Modes "Natural" Mode “Natural” Mode is characterized by reduced engine performance and ECO shifting strategy for the automatic transmission. 07116S0001EM Natural Mode Performance Display 144 "Advanced Efficiency" Mode Activation It is activated by rotating the selector to the letter "a", the displays light up in green. "Dynamic" Mode Activation It is activated by rotating the selector to the letter "d", the displays light up in red. 07116S0006EM Dynamic Mode Performance Display 07116S0003EM Dynamic Mode ESC and ASR systems: intervention thresholds that ensure more enjoyable, sportier driving while guaranteeing the stability of the vehicle. Engine and transmission: adoption of sports mapping. Warning! The "Performance" screen displays parameters related to vehicle stability, the graphs illustrate the trend of the longitudinal/lateral accelerations (G-meter information), considering gravity acceleration as a reference unit. Lateral acceleration peaks are displayed on the right. 07116S0005EM Advanced Efficiency Mode ESC and ASR systems: intervention thresholds aimed at ensuring maximum safety in low-grip driving conditions. It is advisable to select "Advanced Efficiency" mode in the presence of low-grip road surfaces. Engine and transmission: standard response. In "Dynamic", the sensitivity of the accelerator pedal increases considerably. Consequently, driving is less fluid and comfortable. 145 STARTING AND OPERATING 146 The "Performance" screen graphically displays some parameters closely related to the vehicle consumption. 07116S0008EM Advanced Efficiency Mode Performance Display Driving Mode Deactivation To deactivate any driving mode, simply move the selector to any other mode. Note: When the engine is next started, the "Advanced Efficiency", "Dynamic" and "Natural" mode selected previously is retained. The system will reactivate in "Advanced Efficiency", "Dynamic" or "Natural" mode, depending on which mode was selected before the engine was stopped. When the engine is next started, the "Race" mode selected previously is not retained. The system will reactivate in "Dynamic" mode. It is not possible to go directly from "Dynamic" mode to "Advanced Efficiency" mode and vice versa. You must always activate the “Natural” mode first and then select the other mode. ALFA ACTIVE SUSPENSION (AAS) — IF EQUIPPED The vehicle's electronic suspensions management system is the result of a sophisticated elaboration of the various board sensors, aimed at optimizing the vehicle's performance. The system continuously monitors the damping of the suspensions through the actuator installed on each shock absorber. This way, the calibration of the shock absorbers can be adjusted to the conditions of the road surface and to the dynamic conditions of the vehicle, improving its comfort and road holding. The driver can choose, even while driving, (only in "Dynamic” mode), between two types of suspension calibration: a more sporty or a more comfortable one. By pressing the button, the system prepares to work with a shock absorber calibration which favours driving comfort. STOP/START SYSTEM Stop/Start System 04306S0001BASE “Alfa DNA” System Selector In case of a system failure, the symbol and a dedicated message will be shown on the instrument panel display. The Stop/Start system automatically shuts off the engine during a vehicle stop if the required conditions are met. Releasing the brake pedal or accelerator pedal will automatically restart the engine. The function was developed to increase vehicle efficiency by reducing fuel consumption, gas emissions, and sound pollution. Operating Mode Stopping the Engine With vehicle at a standstill and brake pedal pressed, the engine switches off if the gear selector is in a position other than REVERSE (R). The system does not operate when the gear selector is in REVERSE (R), in order to making parking maneuvers easier. In the event of stops uphill, engine switching off is disabled to make the "Hill Start Assist" function available (works only with running engine). NOTE: The engine can only be automatically stopped after having run at about 6 mph (10 km/h). After an automatic restart, the vehicle only needs to exceed a speed of 0.3 mph (0.5 km/h) to stop the engine. Engine stopping is signaled by the symbol lighting up on the instrument cluster display. Restarting the Engine To restart the engine, release the brake pedal. With brake pressed, if the gear selector is in automatic mode - DRIVE (D) - the engine can be restarted by moving the gear selector to REVERSE (R) or NEUTRAL (N) or "AutoStick". With brake pressed, if the gear selector is in "AutoStick" mode, the engine can be restarted by moving the gear selector to "+" or "–", or REVERSE (R) or NEUTRAL (N). When the engine has been stopped automatically, keeping the brake pedal pressed, the brake can be released keeping the engine off by quickly shifting the gear selector to PARK (P). To restart the engine, just move the gear selector out of a position other than PARK (P). 147 STARTING AND OPERATING System Manual Activation/Deactivation To manually activate/deactivate the system, push the button located in the control panel on the left of the steering wheel. 07126S0051EM Stop/Start Button System Activation The activation of the system is indicated by the symbol lighting up on the display. In this condition, the light on the button is off. System Deactivation A message will appear on the display when the system is deactivated. In this condition, the light on the button is on. Note: Each time the engine is started, the system is activated regardless of where was when it was previously switched off. 148 Possible Reasons The Engine Does Not Autostop For higher comfort and increased safety, and to reduce emissions, there are certain conditions where the engine will not autostop despite the system being active, such as: Engine still cold. Especially cold outside temperature. Battery not sufficiently charged. Driver's door not shut. Driver's seat belt not fastened. Reverse gear engaged (e.g. for parking maneuvers). With the automatic climate control active, an adequate cabin heating or cooling comfort has not been reached or with MAX-DEF function active. During the first period of use, to initialize the system. Steering angle beyond threshold. Engine Restarting Conditions Due to comfort, emission control and safety reasons, the engine can restart automatically without any action by the driver, under special conditions, such as: Battery not sufficiently charged. Reduced braking system vacuum (e.g. if the brake pedal is pressed repeatedly). Vehicle moving (e.g. when driving on roads with a grade). Engine stopping by the Stop/Start system for more than approx. three minutes. With the automatic climate control active, an adjustment in cabin heating or cooling is made or with MAX-DEF function active. Safety Functions When the engine is stopped through the Stop/Start system, if the driver releases their seat belt, opens the driver's or passenger's door, or opens the hood from inside the vehicle, the engine can be restarted only by using the ignition. This condition is indicated to the driver both through a buzzer and a message on the instrument cluster display. Irregular Operation In the event of malfunction, the Stop/Start system is deactivated. For failure indications, see the "Warning Lights and Messages" paragraph, "Getting To Know Your Instrument Panel" chapter. Vehicle Inactivity In the event of vehicle inactivity (or if the battery is replaced), special attention must be paid to the disconnection of the battery power supply. Proceed as follows: Remove connector from socket to disconnect sensor (battery status monitoring) installed on the negative pole of the battery. This sensor should never be disconnected from the pole except if the battery is replaced. SPEED LIMITER Description This feature allows the speed of the vehicle to be limited to speeds, which can be set by the driver. The maximum speed can be set with the vehicle stationary or in motion. The minimum speed that can be set is 18 mph (30mk/h). When this feature is active, the vehicle speed depends on the pressing of the accelerator pedal until the programmed speed limit is reached (see "Speed Limit Programming" paragraph). Activating The Device 07126S0002EM Battery Power Supply 1 — Socket 2 — Sensor 3 — Connector Note: After setting the ignition to STOP and having closed the driver side door, wait at least one minute before disconnecting the electrical supply from the battery. When reconnecting the electrical supply to the battery, make sure that the ignition is in the STOP mode and the driver side door is closed. The feature can be activated/ deactivated through the Information and Entertainment System. Activating The Device To access this feature on the main menu, select the following items in sequence: "Settings", "Safety", “Speed Limiter” and “ON”. The activation of this feature is signaled by the displaying of the green symbol along with the last speed set. The Speed Limiter feature can remain active concurrently with the Speed Control system. If a speed limit below the one indicated in the Speed Control is selected, the Speed Control speed will be lowered to that of the Speed Limiter. This function remains available in RACE mode. 07136S0001EM Speed Limiter Display Speed Limit Programming The speed limit can be programmed through the Information and Entertainment System. To access the function on the main menu, select the following items in sequence: "Settings", "Safety" and "Speed Limiter Set Speed". By turning the Rotary Pad, the speed increases by 5 mph (5 km/h), from a minimum of 18 mph (30 km/h) to a maximum of 112 mph (180 km/h). Exceeding The Programmed Speed By fully pressing the accelerator pedal, the programmed speed can be exceeded even with the device active (e.g. in the event of overtaking). The device is disabled until the speed drops below the set limit, after which it reactivates automatically. 149 STARTING AND OPERATING Programmed Speed Icon Flashing The programmed speed will flash in the following scenarios: When the accelerator pedal has been fully pressed and the vehicle has exceeded the programmed speed. Activating the system after setting a limit below the effective speed of the vehicle. In the event of overtake acceleration. Deactivating The Device The feature can be activated/ deactivated through the Information and Entertainment System. Deactivating The Device To access this feature on the main menu, select the following items in sequence: "Settings", "Safety", “Speed Limiter” and “OFF”.

Temporary Signal Loss When the devices loses the signal, the white symbol without the speed indication illuminates on the display. System Failure If there is a system failure, the amber symbol illuminates on the display. 150 ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROL (CRUISE CONTROL) Electronic Speed Control Description This is an electronically controlled driving assistance feature that allows the desired vehicle speed to be maintained, without having to press the accelerator pedal. This feature can be used at a speed above 25 mph (40 km/h) on long stretches of dry, straight roads with few variations (highways). The speed control buttons are located on the left side of the steering wheel. Warning! Speed Control can be dangerous where the system cannot maintain a constant speed. Your vehicle could go too fast for the conditions, and you could lose control and have an accident. Do not use Speed Control in heavy traffic or on roads that are winding, icy, snow-covered or slippery. Activating To activate the Electronic Speed Control System, push the on/off button location on the left side of the steering wheel. Note: To ensure correct operation, the speed control is designed to deactivate if more than one function is operated simultaneously. In this case, the system can be reactivated by pushing the on/off button and setting the desired speed. It is not recommended to use this feature in city traffic. While driving downhill, the system could brake the vehicle to keep the set speed the same. 07146S0001EM Electronic Speed Control On/Off Switch The activation of the system is signaled by the white warning light illuminating in the instrument cluster display. The Electronic Speed Control function can remain active at the same time as the Speed Limiter System. If a speed limit below the one indicated in the set speed control, the speed control speed will be lowered to that of the Speed Limiter. Note: The system cannot be engaged in FIRST or REVERSE gear. It is advisable to engage it in THIRD gear or higher if using the Autostick feature. By keeping the button pushed, the set speed will increase until the button is released. The new speed will then be set. At every movement of the SET switch, the set speed can be adjusted. 07146S0002EM Set Switch Location Warning! Leaving the Speed Control system on when not in use is dangerous. You could accidentally set the system or cause it to go faster than you want. You could lose control and have an accident. Always leave the system OFF when you are not using it. Setting The Desired Speed To set a desired speed, proceed as follows: 1. Turn the Electronic Speed Control on. 2. When the vehicle has reached the desired speed, push the SET switch up or down and release to activate. When the accelerator is released, the vehicle will keep the selected speed automatically. If needed (when overtaking for instance), you can accelerate beyond the set speed by pressing the accelerator. When you release the pedal, the vehicle goes back to the previously set speed. When traveling downhill with the system active, the vehicle speed may slightly exceed the set one. Note: Before pushing the SET switch, the vehicle must be traveling at a constant speed on a flat surface. Increasing/Decreasing Speed Increasing Speed Once the Electronic Speed Control has been activated, the speed can be increased by pushing the SET switch upward. Decreasing Speed When the feature is active, to reduce the speed, push the SET switch downward. By keeping the button pushed, the set speed will decrease until the button is released. The new speed will then be set. At every movement of the SET switch, the set speed can be adjusted. Note: Moving the SET switch allows to adjust the speed according to the selected unit of measurement set on the Information and Entertainment System (see dedicated supplement). Accelerating When Overtaking Press the accelerator as you would normally. When the pedal is released, the vehicle will return to the set speed. Use Of The Feature On Hilly Routes The feature can automatically downshift to keep the set speed when driving on hilly routes. On steep grades, the loss or gain in speed may be considerable and is advisable to deactivate the Electronic Speed Control. 151 STARTING AND OPERATING Note: The feature keeps the speed set even uphill and downhill. A slight variation in the speed on slight rises is completely normal. Recalling The Speed Note: Before returning to the previously set speed, you must accelerate to a speed close to that speed, then push the RES button and release it. While in DRIVE (D), push and release the RES button to recall the previously set speed. Deactivating Lightly pressing the brake pedal deactivates the speed control without deleting the set speed. The speed control may also be deactivated by applying the electric park brake or when the braking system is operated (e.g. operation of the ESC system). The set speed is deleted in the following cases: Pushing the on/off button twice. The ignition is cycled to the STOP position If there is a malfunction with the Electronic Speed Control. ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL (ACC) — IF EQUIPPED System Description The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is a driver assist system that combines the speed control functions for controlling the distance from the vehicle ahead. The system allows to set and hold the vehicle at the desired speed without needing to press the accelerator. It also allows to set and hold a distance from the vehicle ahead (these settings are set by the driver). The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) uses a radar sensor located behind the front bumper and a camera located in the center/upper part of the windshield, to detect the presence of a vehicle close ahead. 07146S0003EM Resume Button Location In Autostick (sequential) mode, before recalling the previously set speed, you should accelerate until you are close to that speed. Then, push and release the RES button. 06016S0003EM Front Bumper Radar Location 152 Driving on icy, snowy, slippery roads, roads with steep climbs and descents, or roads with numerous turns and bends Entering a turn lane Towing a trailer When circumstances do not allow safe driving at a constant speed 06016S0004EM Windshield Camera Location This system enhances driving comfort while on the highway or out of town with light traffic. If the sensor does not detect a vehicle ahead, the system will maintain a fixed set speed. If the sensor detects a vehicle ahead, the device automatically intervenes by braking (or accelerating) slightly in order not to exceed the original set speed, so that the vehicle keeps the preset distance, seeking to adapt to the speed of the vehicle ahead. Note: Adaptive Cruise Control performance is not guaranteed under the following circumstances, and it is recommended to turn the system off when: Driving in fog, heavy rain, or snow Driving in heavy traffic or construction zones Warning! Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is a convenience system. It is not a substitute for active driving involvement. It is always the driver’s responsibility to be attentive of road, traffic, and weather conditions, vehicle speed, distance to the vehicle ahead; and, most importantly, brake operation to ensure safe operation of the vehicle under all road conditions. Your complete attention is always required while driving to maintain safe control of your vehicle. Failure to follow these warnings can result in a collision and death or serious personal injury. The ACC system: Does not react to pedestrians, oncoming vehicles, and stationary objects (e.g., a stopped vehicle in a traffic jam or a disabled vehicle). Does not always fully recognize complex driving conditions, which can result in wrong or missing distance warnings. Will bring the vehicle to a complete stop while following a target vehicle and hold the vehicle for approximately 3 minutes in the stop position. If the target vehicle does not start moving within 3 minutes the parking brake will be activated, and the ACC system will be canceled. You should switch off the ACC system: When driving in fog, heavy rain, heavy snow, sleet, heavy traffic, and complex driving situations (i.e., in highway construction zones). When entering a turn lane or highway off ramp; when driving on roads that are winding, icy, snow-covered, slippery, or have steep uphill or downhill slopes. When circumstances do not allow safe driving at a constant speed. Activation/Deactivation The system has four operating states: Enabled (speed not set) Activated (speed set) Paused Deactivated Cannot take street, traffic, and weather conditions into account, and may be limited upon adverse sight distance conditions. 153 STARTING AND OPERATING Enabling/Activating To enable the system, push and release the button located on the left side on the steering wheel. Warning! Leaving the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system on when not in use is dangerous. You could accidentally set the system or cause it to go faster than you want. You could lose control and have a collision. Always leave the system off when you are not using it. 07146S0017EM 07146S0010EM On/Off Button When the system is enabled and ready to operate, the display shows the white icon above dashes in place of the speed. Pausing/Deactivating With the feature enabled (speed not set), push the (on/off) button to disable. With the feature active (speed set), push the (on/off) button to pause. The display will show the icon in white with the speed in brackets. To then deactivate the feature, push the (on/off) button again. Setting The Desired Speed 07146S0016EM Enabled Icons Setting a speed activates the system. The display shows the icon in green with the set speed. 154 The speed can be set from a minimum of 20 mph (30 km/h) to a maximum of 110 mph (180 km/h). When the vehicle reaches the desired speed, push the SET switch upward or downward and release it to activate the system. When the accelerator is released, the vehicle will maintain the set speed automatically. SET Switch While the accelerator pedal is pressed, the system will not be able to control the distance between the vehicle and the one ahead. In this case, the speed will be determined only by the position of the accelerator pedal. The system will return to normal operation as soon as the accelerator pedal is released. The system cannot be set: When pressing the brake pedal. When the brakes are overheated. When the electric park brake has been operated. When either PARK (P), REVERSE (R) or NEUTRAL (N) is engaged. When the engine rpm is above a maximum threshold. When the vehicle speed is not within the operational speed range. When the ESC (or ABS or other stability control systems) are operating or have just operated. When the ESC system is off. When the Forward Collision Warning system (if equipped) is braking automatically. In the event of system failure. When the engine is OFF. In case of obstruction of the radar sensor (in this case the bumper area where it is located must be cleaned). If the system is set, the conditions described above also cause a cancellation or deactivation of the system. These situations may vary according to the conditions. Note: The system will not be deactivated when speeds higher than those set are reached by pressing the accelerator pedal above 110 mph (180 km/h). In these situations, the system may not work correctly and it is recommended to deactivate it. To Vary The Speed Setting Increasing Speed Once the system has been activated, you can increase the speed by lifting the SET switch. Each time it is operated, the speed increases by 1 mph. By holding the button up, the set speed will increase in increments of 5 mph until the button is released. Then, the new speed will be set. Decreasing Speed Once the system has been activated, you can decrease the speed by lowering the SET switch. Each time it is operated, the speed decreases by 1 mph. By holding the button down, the set speed will decrease in increments of 5 mph until the button is released. Then, the new speed will be set. Note: Moving the SET switch allows you to adjust the speed according to the selected unit of measurement ("US" or "metric") set on the Information and Entertainment System (see dedicated supplement) When the unit of measurement is set to metric, holding the SET switch the speed will change in 10 km/h increments By keeping the accelerator pedal depressed, the vehicle can continue to accelerate beyond the set speed. In this case, use the SET switch to set the speed to the vehicle’s current speed When you push the SET button to reduce the speed, the braking system intervenes automatically if the engine brake does not slow the vehicle down sufficiently to reach the set speed. The device holds the set speed uphill and downhill; however a slight variation is entirely normal, particularly on slight inclines The transmission could change to a lower gear when driving downhill, or when accelerating. This is normal and necessary to maintain the set speed The system will disable while driving if the brakes overheat Accelerating When Overtaking When driving with ACC activated and following a vehicle, the system will provide an additional acceleration up to the ACC set speed to assist in passing the vehicle. This additional acceleration is triggered when the driver utilizes the left turn signal and will only be active when passing on the left hand side. The system detects the direction of traffic automatically when the vehicle passes from left-hand traffic to right-hand traffic. In this case, the overtaking assist function is only active when the reference vehicle is overtaken on the right. The additional acceleration is deactivated when the driver uses the right direction indicator and returns to the original lane. 155 STARTING AND OPERATING Resuming The Speed Once the system has been canceled but not deactivated, to resume a previously set speed, simply push the RES button and remove your foot from the accelerator to recall it. The system will be set to the last stored speed. accelerate or decelerate too sharply for safe operation. Failure to follow these warnings can result in a collision and death or serious personal injury. Setting The Distance Between Vehicles The distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead may be set to one bar (short), two bars (medium), three bars (long), or four bars (maximum). The setting is four (maximum) the first time the system is used. After the distance has been modified by the driver, the new distance will be stored also after the system is deactivated and reactivated. To Decrease The Distance Push and release the distance button to decrease the distance setting. The distance setting decreases by one bar (shorter) every time the button is pushed. 07146S0018EM RES (Resume) Button Before returning to the previously set speed, bring the speed close to that value, then push the RES button and release it. Warning! The Resume function should only be used if traffic and road conditions permit. Resuming a set speed that is too high or too low for prevailing traffic and road conditions could cause the vehicle to 156 07146S0019EM Distance Icons The distances from the vehicle ahead are proportional to speed. The interval of time with relation to the vehicle ahead remains constant and varies from one second (for the short distance one-bar setting) to two seconds (for the maximum distance four-bar setting). The set distance is shown on the display by a dedicated icon. 07146S0015EM Distance Button The set speed is held if there are no vehicles ahead. Once the shortest distance has been selected, the next push of the button will set the maximum distance. If a slower vehicle is detected in the same lane, the vehicle icon on the display illuminates from grey to white. The system automatically adjusts the vehicle’s speed to keep the set distance, independently of the set speed. The vehicle holds the set distance until: The vehicle ahead accelerates to a speed higher than the set speed. The vehicle ahead leaves the lane or the detection field of the Adaptive Cruise Control system sensor. The distance setting is changed. The Adaptive Cruise Control system is deactivated/paused. Warning! The maximum breaking applied by the system is limited. The driver may apply the brakes in all cases if needed. If the system predicts that the braking level is insufficient to hold the set distance, either “BRAKE!” or a dedicated message is displayed to warn the driver of approaching the vehicle ahead. An acoustic signal is also emitted. In this case, it is advised to brake immediately as necessary to hold a safe distance from the vehicle ahead. The driver is responsible for ensuring that there are no pedestrians, other vehicles or objectives along the direction of the vehicle. Failure to comply with these precautions may cause serious accidents and injuries. The driver is fully responsible for holding a safe distance from the vehicle ahead respecting the highway code in force in the respective country. “Stop And Go” Function The “Stop and Go” operating strategy allows you to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead until the vehicle has completely stopped. It will also restart the vehicle automatically if the vehicle ahead drives away within two seconds, otherwise it is necessary to press the accelerator pedal or push the RES button to restart. Warning! When the ACC system is resumed, the driver must ensure that there are no pedestrians, vehicles or objects in the path of the vehicle. Failure to follow these warnings can result in a collision and death or serious personal injury. Deactivation The system is deactivated and the set speed is canceled if: The (on/off) button is pushed (when the system is on or paused). The ignition is cycled to STOP. The system is canceled (the set speed and distance are stored): When the system is paused (Refer to the “Activation / Deactivation” section). When the conditions shown in the “Setting The Desired Speed” section occur. Limited Operation Warning If the dedicated message is shown on the display, a condition limiting the Adaptive Cruise Control operation may have occurred. This could be due to an obstruction of the vehicle’s sensor or camera. It could also be due to a fault in the system. If an obstruction is detected, clean the area of the windshield opposite the interior rear view mirror, where the camera is located, as well as the area of the front bumper where the sensor is located. Then check that the message has disappeared. When the conditions limiting the system functions end, normal operation will resume. Should the fault persist, contact an authorized dealer. Precautions While Driving The system may not work correctly in some driving conditions (see below). The driver must control the vehicle at all times. Vehicle Not Aligned The system may not detect a vehicle traveling in the same lane, in the same direction, but is not aligned. It also may not detect a vehicle which is cutting in from a side lane. Sufficient distance from the vehicles ahead may not be guaranteed in these cases. 157 STARTING AND OPERATING The non-aligned vehicle can weave in and out of the driving lane causing the vehicle to brake or accelerate unexpectedly. Steering And Curves Driving on curves with the system set could limit speed and acceleration to guarantee vehicle stability, even if no vehicles are detected ahead. When leaving the curve, the system resets the previously set speed. Using The System On Slopes When driving on roads with a variable incline, the system may not detect the presence of a vehicle in the lane. System performance could be limited according to speed, load, traffic conditions and steep slopes. Small Vehicles Some narrow vehicles (e.g. bicycles and motorcycles) traveling near the outer edges of the lane or which enter the lane from curb side are not detected until they are fully in the lane. Lane Change The system may not detect the presence of a vehicle until it is fully in your lane. 07146S0013EM Small Vehicles Sufficient distance from the vehicles ahead may not be guaranteed in these cases. 07146S0011EM Steering And Curves Note: In cases of narrow curves, the performance of the system could be limited. In this case, it is advisable to deactivate the system. The system only limits the speed DURING a bend and not BEFORE it. 158 07146S0012EM Lane Change In this case, sufficient distance from the vehicle which is changing lanes may not be guaranteed. It is advisable to pay the utmost attention at all times and be always ready to apply the brakes if needed. Stationary Objects And Vehicles The system cannot detect the presence of stationary vehicles or objects. For example, the system will not operate if the vehicle ahead leaves the lane and a vehicle ahead of that one is stationary in that lane. Pay the utmost attention at all times and be always ready to apply the brakes if needed. Objects And Vehicles Moving In Opposite Or Crosswise Direction The system cannot detect the presence of objects or vehicles traveling in opposite or crosswise directions and consequently will not activate.

Operation is subject to the following two conditions: 1. The device may not cause harmful interference. PARK SENSORS SYSTEM Vehicles With Rear Sensors Only The parking sensors, located in the rear bumper, detect obstacles while the vehicle is in REVERSE. When an obstacle is detected, an acoustic alert will sound and visual indications will be displayed on the instrument cluster. 2. The device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device. Changes or modifications to any of these systems by other than an authorized service facility could void authorization to use this equipment. 07176S0001EM Rear Sensor Location 07146S0014EM Objects And Vehicles Moving In Opposite Or Crosswise Direction 159 STARTING AND OPERATING Engagement/Disengagement To turn the system off, push the Park Sensors System button located to the left of the headlight switch. The indicator light within the button will illuminate when the system is turned off. Pushing the button a second time will turn the system back on, and the indicator light will turn off. System Activation/Deactivation The system, when engaged, is automatically activated by engaging the REVERSE gear. It is deactivated by engaging another gear. Acoustic Signal When REVERSE is engaged and there is an obstacle behind the vehicle, an acoustic signal with variable frequency will sound. The acoustic signal increases in frequency as the distance between the vehicle and the obstacle decreases. The acoustic signal becomes continuous when the distance between the vehicle and the obstacle is less than 11 inches (30 cm), and stops if the distance increases. 07176S0052EM Park Sensor
