Illustrated table of contents
The vehicle should be driven with the Vehicle
Dynamic Control (VDC) system on for most driv-
ing conditions.
If the vehicle is stuck in mud or snow, the VDC
system reduces the engine output to reduce
wheel spin. The engine speed will be reduced
even if the accelerator is depressed to the floor. If
maximum engine power is needed to free a stuck
vehicle, turn the VDC system off.
To turn off the VDC system, push the VDC OFF
switch. The
indicator will come on.
Push the VDC OFF switch again or restart the
engine to turn on the system. See “Vehicle Dy-
namic Control (VDC) system”in the “Starting and
driving” section.
The power outlets are for powering electrical
accessories such as cellular telephones. They
are rated at 12 Volt, 120 W (10A) maximum.
Type A:
The power outlet
±
A
in the front console
box is powered directly by the battery.
Type B:
The power outlet
±
A
in the front console
box is powered only when the ignition switch is in
the ACC or ON position.
The power outlet
±
B
on the center console near
the shift selector is powered only when the igni-
tion switch is in the ACC or ON position.
CAUTION
The outlet and plug may be hot during
or immediately after use.
Only certain power outlets are designed
for use with a cigarette lighter unit. Do
not use any other power outlet for an
accessory
lighter.
See
your
NISSAN
dealer for additional information.
Do not use with accessories that ex-
ceed a 12 volt, 120W (10A) power draw.
Do not use double adapters or more
than one electrical accessory.
Use power outlets with the engine run-
ning to avoid discharging the vehicle
battery.
Avoid using power outlets when the air
conditioner, headlights or rear window
defroster is on.
Before
inserting
or
disconnecting
a
plug, be sure the electrical accessory
being used is turned OFF.
Push the plug in as far as it will go. If
good contact is not made, the plug may
overheat or the internal temperature
fuse may open.

MEMORY STORAGE FUNCTION
Two positions for the driver’s seat, steering col-
umn, and outside mirrors can be stored in the
automatic drive positioner memory. Follow these
procedures to use the memory system.
1. Set the Continuously Variable Transmission
(CVT) shift selector to the P (Park) position.
2. Place the ignition in the ON position.
3. Adjust the driver’s seat, steering column,
and outside mirrors to the desired positions
by
manually
operating
each
adjusting
switch.
For
additional
information,
see
“Seats”in the “Safety—Seats, seat belts and
supplemental restraint system” section and
“Outside mirrors” in this section.
During this step, do not place the ignition
switch in any position other than ON.
4. Push the SET switch and, within 5 seconds,
push the memory switch (1 or 2).
The indicator light for the pushed memory
switch will come on and stay on for approxi-
mately 5 seconds after pushing the switch.
After the indicator light goes off, the se-
lected positions are stored in the selected
memory (1 or 2).
If a new memory is stored in the same memory
switch, the previous memory will be deleted.
Linking a keyfob to a stored memory
position
Each keyfob can be linked to a stored memory
position (memory switch 1 or 2) with the follow-
ing procedure.
1. Follow the steps for storing a memory posi-
tion.
2. While the indicator light for the memory
switch being set is illuminated for 5 sec-
onds, press the
button on the keyfob.
The indicator light will blink. After the indica-
tor light goes off, the keyfob is linked to that
memory setting.
With the ignition switch placed in the OFF posi-
tion, press the
button on the keyfob. The
driver’s seat and outside mirrors will move to the
memorized position.
NOTE:
If a new memory position is saved to the
memory switch, the keyfob automatically
re-links.
Confirming memory storage
Place the ignition switch in the ON position
and push the SET switch. If the main memory
has not been stored, the indicator light will
come on for approximately 0.5 seconds.
When the memory has stored the position,
the indicator light will stay on for approxi-
mately 5 seconds.
If the battery cable is disconnected, or if the
fuse opens, the memory storage function will
be canceled and must be restarted before a
stored memory position can be set again.
Drive the vehicle over 25 MPH (40 km/h) to
restart the memory storage function. You
can also restart the memory storage function
using the following procedure.
LRS2009

Pre-driving checks and adjustments
1. Connect the battery cable or replace the
fuse.
2. Open and close the driver’s door more than
2 times with the ignition switch in the LOCK
position.
Once the memory storage function has been
restarted, you can store a memory position.
See “Memory storage function” in this sec-
tion.
Selecting the memorized position
Set the shift selector to the P (Park) position,
then:
Within 45 seconds of opening the driver’s
door, push the memory switch (1 or 2) or
Place the ignition switch in the ON position
and push the memory switch (1 or 2).
The driver’s seat, steering column, and outside
mirrors will move to the memorized position with
the indicator light blinking, and then the light will
stay on for approximately 5 seconds.
ENTRY/EXIT FUNCTION
This system is designed so that the driver’s seat
and automatic operation steering column will au-
tomatically move when the shift selector is in the
P (Park) position. This allows the driver to get into
and out of the driver’s seat more easily.
The driver’s seat will slide backward and the
steering wheel will move up when the driver’s
door is opened and the ignition switch is in the
LOCK position.
The driver’s seat and steering wheel will return to
the previous position when the driver’s door is
closed and the ignition switch is pushed.
The entry/exit function can be adjusted or can-
celed. See “Comfort & Convenience settings” in
the “Monitor, climate, audio, phone and voice
recognition systems” section of this manual.
Restarting the entry/exit function
If the battery cable is disconnected or if the fuse
opens, the entry/exit function will be disabled.
Drive the vehicle over 25 MPH (40 km/h) to
restart the entry/exit function. You can also restart
the entry/exit function using the following proce-
dure.
1. Connect the battery cable or replace the
fuse.
2. Open and close the driver’s door more than
2 times with the ignition switch in the LOCK
position.
The entry/exit function should now work properly.
SYSTEM OPERATION
The automatic drive positioner system will not
work or will stop operating under the following
conditions:
When the vehicle speed is above 4 MPH (7
km/h).
When any of the memory switches are
pushed while the automatic drive positioner
is operating.
When the adjusting switch for the driver’s
seat is turned on while the automatic drive
positioner is operating.
When the seat has been already moved to
the memorized position.
When no seat position is stored in the
memory switch.
When the shift selector is moved from P
(Park) to any other position.
When the driver’s door remains open more
than 45 seconds and the ignition switch is
not in the ON position.
The automatic drive positioner system can be
adjusted and canceled for vehicles with naviga-
tion system. See “Comfort & Convenience set-
tings” in the “Monitor, climate, audio, phone and
voice recognition systems”section of this manual.

If a type A fuse is used to replace a type B fuse,
the type A fuse will not be level with the fuse
pocket as shown in the illustration. This will not
affect the performance of the fuse. Make sure the
fuse is installed in the fuse box securely.
Type B fuses cannot be installed in the under-
hood fuse boxes. Only use type A fuses in the
underhood fuse boxes.
