Do not place objects or
mount equipment on or
near the air bag covers that may
come into contact with an
inflating air bag.
Do not attempt to service,
repair, or modify the Air
Bag Supplemental Restraint
System or its fuses. See your
Ford or Lincoln-Mercury dealer.

2. Apply the parking brake.
3. Turn ignition key to Lock and
remove the key.
4. Re-insert the ignition key and
turn it to Off.
5. Shift the transmission to N
(Neutral).
6. Start the vehicle.
If you need to use the above
procedure, it is possible that a fuse
has blown and your brakelamps
may not be functioning. Refer to
the
Roadside emergencies
chapter for instructions on
replacing fuses.
Do not drive your vehicle
until you verify that the
brakelamps are working.
Manual transmission operation
(if equipped)
Using the clutch
Vehicles equipped with a manual
transmission have a starter
interlock that prevents cranking
the engine unless the clutch pedal
is fully depressed.

Careless or high speed driving
while plowing snow which results
in vehicle decelerations equivalent
to or greater than the air bag
deployment impact speeds listed
above can deploy the air bag. Such
driving also increases the risk of
accidents.
All occupants of the
vehicle, including the
driver, should always wear their
safety belts.
Never remove or defeat the
“tripping mechanisms” designed
into the snow removal equipment
by its manufacturer. Doing so may
cause damage to the vehicle and
the snow removal equipment as
well as possible air bag
deployment.
Do not attempt to service,
repair, or modify the Air
Bag Supplemental Restraint
System or its fuses. See your
Ford or Lincoln-Mercury dealer.
Engine temperature while
plowing
When driving with a plow, your
engine may run at a higher
temperature than normal because
the attached snowplow blade will
restrict airflow to the radiator.

REPLACING BLOWN FUSES
If electrical components in the
vehicle are not working, a fuse
may have blown. Blown fuses are
identified by a broken element.
Check the appropriate fuses before
replacing any electrical
components.
Even after a fuse is replaced, it
may continue to blow if the cause
of the overload is not identified
and corrected. If a fuse continues
to blow, have the vehicle’s
electrical system checked.

CHANGING FLAT TIRES
If you get a flat tire while driving,
do not apply the brakes heavily.
Instead, gradually reduce the
speed while holding the steering
wheel firmly. Move the vehicle to a
safe spot off to the side of the
road.
