FUSES AND RELAYS
Fuses
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.
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.

CHANGING THE TIRES
If you get a flat tire while driving,
do not apply the brake heavily.
Instead, gradually decrease your
speed. Hold the steering wheel
firmly and slowly move to a safe
place on the side of the road.
Temporary spare tire
information
Your vehicle may have a temporary
or full-size spare tire. The
temporary spare tire for your
vehicle is labeled as such. It is
smaller than a regular tire and is
designed for emergency use only.
Replace this tire with a full-size
tire as soon as possible.
If you use the temporary
spare tire continuously or
do not follow these precautions,
the tire could fail, causing you to
lose control of the vehicle,
possibly injuring yourself or
others.
