PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION
WARNINGS
Airbags DO NOT inflate slowly or
gently, and the risk of injury from a
deploying airbag is the greatest close
to the trim covering the airbag module.
All occupants of the vehicle,
including the driver, should always
properly wear their safety belts, even
when an airbag supplemental restraint
system is provided.
Always transport children 12 years
old and under in the back seat and
always properly use appropriate
child restraints.
Never place your arm over the airbag
module as a deploying airbag can
result in serious arm fractures or
other injuries.
Airbags can kill or injure a child in a
child seat. NEVER place a rear-facing
child seat in front of an active airbag.
If you must use a forward-facing child seat
in the front seat, move the seat all the way
back.
Do not attempt to service, repair, or
modify the airbag supplemental
restraint systems or its fuses.
Contact your authorized dealer as soon as
possible.
Several airbag system components
get hot after inflation. Do not touch
them after inflation.
If the airbag has deployed, the airbag
will not function again and must be
replaced immediately. If the airbag
is not replaced, the unrepaired area will
increase the risk of injury in a collision.
All occupants of the vehicle,
including the driver, should always
properly wear their safety belts, even
when an air bag supplemental restraint
system is provided.
The airbags are a supplemental restraint
system and are designed to work with the
safety belts to help protect the driver and
right front passenger from certain upper
body injuries. Airbags DO NOT inflate
slowly; there is a risk of injury from a
deploying airbag.
Note:
You will hear a loud bang and see a
cloud of harmless powdery residue if an
airbag deploys. This is normal.
The airbags inflate and deflate rapidly
upon activation. After airbag deployment,
it is normal to notice a smoke-like, powdery
residue or smell the burnt propellant. This
may consist of cornstarch, talcum powder
(to lubricate the bag) or sodium
compounds (e.g., baking soda) that result
from the combustion process that inflates
the airbag. Small amounts of sodium
hydroxide may be present which may
irritate the skin and eyes, but none of the
residue is toxic. While the system is
designed to help reduce serious injuries,
contact with a deploying airbag may also
cause abrasions or swelling. Temporary
hearing loss is also a possibility as a result
of the noise associated with a deploying
airbag. Because airbags must inflate
rapidly and with considerable force, there
is the risk of death or serious injuries such
as fractures, facial and eye injuries or
internal injuries, particularly to occupants
who are not properly restrained or are
otherwise out of position at the time of
airbag deployment. Thus, it is extremely
important that occupants be properly
restrained as far away from the airbag
module as possible while maintaining
vehicle control.
Routine maintenance of the airbags is not
required.
35
Supplementary Restraints System
Wait at least two minutes and verify
that the airbag readiness lamp is no
longer illuminated.
If the airbag readiness lamp remains
illuminated, this may or may not be a
problem due to the front passenger
sensing system.
DO NOT attempt to repair or service the
system; take your vehicle immediately to
an authorized dealer.
If it is necessary to modify an advanced
front airbag system to accommodate a
person with disabilities, contact your
authorized dealer.
SIDE AIRBAGS
WARNINGS
Do not place objects or mount
equipment on or near the airbag
cover, on the side of the seatbacks
(of the front seats), or in front seat areas
that may come into contact with a
deploying airbag. Failure to follow these
instructions may increase the risk of
personal injury in the event of a collision.
Do not use accessory seat covers.
The use of accessory seat covers
may prevent the deployment of the
side airbags and increase the risk of injury
in an accident.
Do not lean your head on the door.
The side airbag could injure you as it
deploys from the side of the
seatback.
Do not attempt to service, repair, or
modify the airbag, its fuses or the
seat cover on a seat containing an
airbag. Contact your authorized dealer as
soon as possible.
WARNINGS
If the side airbag has deployed, the
airbag will not function again. The
side airbag system (including the
seat) must be inspected and serviced by
an authorized dealer. If the airbag is not
replaced, the unrepaired area will increase
the risk of injury in a collision.
The side airbags are fitted on the outboard
side of the seatbacks of the front seats. In
certain lateral collisions, the airbag on the
side affected by the collision will be
inflated. The airbag was designed to inflate
between the door panel and occupant to
further enhance the protection provided
occupants in side impact collisions.

The system consists of the following:
A label or embossed side panel
indicating that side airbags are fitted
to your vehicle.

Note:
The passenger sensing system will
deactivate the passenger seat-mounted
side airbag if it detects an empty, unbuckled
passenger seat.
The design and development of the side
airbag system included recommended
testing procedures that were developed
by a group of automotive safety experts
known as the Side Airbag Technical
Working Group. These recommended
testing procedures help reduce the risk of
injuries related to the deployment of side
airbags.
SAFETY CANOPY®
WARNINGS
Do not place objects or mount
equipment on or near the headliner
at the siderail that may come into
contact with a deploying curtain airbag.
Failure to follow these instructions may
increase the risk of personal injury in the
event of a collision.
Do not lean your head on the door.
The curtain airbag could injure you
as it deploys from the headliner.
Do not attempt to service, repair, or
modify the curtain airbags, its fuses,
the A, B, or C pillar trim, or the
headliner on a vehicle containing curtain
airbags. Contact your authorized dealer as
soon as possible.
All occupants of the vehicle including
the driver should always wear their
safety belts even when an airbag
supplemental restraint system and curtain
airbag is provided.
To reduce risk of injury, do not
obstruct or place objects in the
deployment path of the curtain
airbag.
WARNINGS
If the curtain airbags have deployed,
the curtain airbags will not function
again. The curtain airbags (including
the A, B and C pillar trim and headliner)
must be inspected and serviced by an
authorized dealer. If the curtain airbag is
not replaced, the unrepaired area will
increase the risk of injury in a collision.
The Safety Canopy will deploy during
significant side collisions or when a certain
likelihood of a rollover event is detected
by the rollover sensor. The Safety Canopy
is mounted to the roof side-rail sheet
metal, behind the headliner, above each
row of seats. In certain lateral collisions or
rollover events, the Safety Canopy will be
activated, regardless of which seats are
occupied. The Safety Canopy is designed
to inflate between the side window area
and occupants to further enhance
protection provided in side impact
collisions and rollover events.

will damage the outlet and blow the fuse.
Note:
Do not hang any type of accessory or
accessory bracket from the plug.
Note:
Do not use the power point over the
vehicle capacity of 12 volt DC 180 watts or
a fuse may blow.
Note:
Do not use the power point for
operating a cigar lighter element.
Note:
Improper use of the power point can
cause damage not covered by your
warranty.
Note:
Always keep the power point caps
closed when not in use.
Run the engine for full capacity use of the
power point. To prevent the battery from
being discharged:
Do not use the power point longer than
necessary when the engine is not
running.
Do not leave devices plugged in
overnight or when the vehicle is parked
for extended periods.
Locations
Power points may be found:
on the center console
inside the center console storage bin
on the rear of the center console.
110 Volt AC Power Point
(If Equipped)
WARNING
Do not keep electrical devices
plugged in the power point whenever
the device is not in use. Do not use
any extension cord with the 110 volt AC
power point, since it will defeat the safety
protection design. Doing so my cause the
power point to overload due to powering
multiple devices that can reach beyond
the 150 watt load limit and could result in
fire or serious injury.
Note:
The power point will turn off when
the ignition is switched off or the battery
voltage drops below 11 volts.
E143941
The power point is used for powering
electrical devices that require up to 150
watts. It is located on the rear of the center
console.
When the indicator light, located on the
power point, is:
on
power point is working, ignition is
on and a device is plugged in.
off
power point is off, ignition is off
or no device is plugged in.
flashing
power point is in fault mode.

TOWING A TRAILER
WARNINGS
Do not exceed the GVWR or the
GAWR specified on the certification
label.
Towing trailers beyond the maximum
recommended gross trailer weight
exceeds the limit of the vehicle and
could result in engine damage,
transmission damage, structural damage,
loss of vehicle control, vehicle rollover and
personal injury.
Your vehicle may have electrical items,
such as fuses or relays, related to towing.
See the Fuses chapter.
Your vehicle's load capacity designation
is by weight, not by volume, so you cannot
necessarily use all available space when
loading a vehicle.
Towing a trailer places an extra load on
your vehicle's engine, transmission, axle,
brakes, tires and suspension. Inspect these
components periodically during, and after,
any towing operation.
Load Placement
To help minimize how trailer movement
affects your vehicle when driving:
Load the heaviest items closest to the
trailer floor.
Load the heaviest items centered
between the left and right side trailer
tires.
Load the heaviest items above the
trailer axles or just slightly forward
toward the trailer tongue. Do not allow
the final trailer tongue weight to go
above or below 10-15% of the loaded
trailer weight.
Select a tow bar with the correct rise
or drop. When both the loaded vehicle
and trailer are connected, the trailer
frame should be level, or slightly angled
down toward your vehicle, when
viewed from the side.
When driving with a trailer or payload, a
slight takeoff vibration or shudder may be
present due to the increased payload
weight. Additional information regarding
proper trailer loading and setting your
vehicle up for towing is located in another
chapter of this manual. See
Load Limit
(page 183). You can also find the
information in the
RV & Trailer Towing
Guide
, available at an authorized dealer.
TRAILER SWAY CONTROL
(IF
EQUIPPED)
Note:
This feature does not prevent trailer
sway, but reduces it once it begins.
Note:
This feature cannot stop all trailers
from swaying.
Note:
In some cases, if vehicle speed is too
high, the system may activate multiple
times, gradually reducing vehicle speed.
This feature applies the vehicle brakes at
individual wheels and, if necessary, reduces
engine power. If the trailer begins to sway,
the stability control light flashes. The first
thing to do is slow the vehicle down, then
pull safely to the side of the road and
check for proper tongue load and trailer
load distribution. See
Load Carrying
(page 181).

CHANGING A FUSE
Fuses
WARNING
Always replace a fuse with one that
has the specified amperage rating.
Using a fuse with a higher amperage
rating can cause severe wire damage and
could start a fire.
E142430
If electrical components in the vehicle are
not working, a fuse may have blown. Blown
fuses are identified by a broken wire within
the fuse. Check the appropriate fuses
before replacing any electrical
components.

FUSE SPECIFICATION CHART
Pre-Fuse Box
Your vehicle is equipped with a pre-fuse
box located in the engine compartment
attached to the positive battery post. This
box contains several high current fuses. If
replacement of these high current fuses is
required, see your authorized dealer.
Power Distribution Box
WARNINGS
Always disconnect the battery before
servicing high current fuses.
WARNINGS
To reduce risk of electrical shock,
always replace the cover to the
power distribution box before
reconnecting the battery or refilling fluid
reservoirs.
The power distribution box is located in
the engine compartment. It has
high-current fuses that protect your
vehicle's main electrical systems from
overloads.
If the battery has been disconnected and
reconnected, some features will need to
be reset. See
Changing the 12V Battery
(page 231).
