.
Caution
Hanging heavy equipment from
the power outlet can cause
damage not covered by the
vehicle warranty. The power
outlets are designed for
accessory power plugs only, such
as cell phone charge cords.
Power Outlet 110/120 Volt
Alternating Current
If equipped, this power outlet is on
the rear of the center console. It can
be used to plug in electrical
equipment with a maximum limit of
150 watts.
An indicator light on the outlet
comes on when in use. The light
comes on when the ignition is in
ON/RUN, equipment requiring less
than 150 watts is plugged into the
outlet, and no system fault is
detected.
The indicator light does not come on
when the ignition is in LOCK/OFF or
if the equipment is not fully seated
into the outlet.
If you try to connect equipment
using more than 150 watts or a
system fault is detected, the
equipment may operate for a short
period and turn itself off.
A protection circuit shuts off the
power supply and the indicator light
turns off. To reset the circuit, unplug
the item and plug it back in or turn
the Remote Accessory Power (RAP)
off and then back on. See
Retained
Accessory Power (RAP)
0
180
.
Prolonged usage of the power outlet
at the maximum load of 150 watts
may cause the outlet to overheat
and automatically shut down. The
power restarts when equipment that
operates within the limit is plugged
into the outlet and a system fault is
not detected.
The power outlet is not designed for
the following equipment, and may
not work properly if any of the
following is plugged in:
.
Equipment with high initial peak
wattage such as:
compressor-driven refrigerators
and electric power tools.
.
Other equipment requiring an
extremely stable power supply
such as:
microcomputer-controlled
electric blankets, touch sensor
lamps, etc.
.
Medical equipment.

Instruments and Controls
Cigarette Lighter
If equipped, push the lighter down
and it will pop up when it is ready to
be used. The ignition switch must
be in the ACC/ACCESSORY or ON/
RUN position to use the lighter.
Caution
Holding a cigarette lighter in while
it is heating does not let the
lighter back away from the
heating element when it is hot.
Damage from overheating can
occur to the lighter or heating
element, or a fuse could be
blown. Do not hold a cigarette
lighter in while it is heating.
It is not recommended to use the
cigarette lighter to plug in auxiliary
electrical equipment.
Ashtrays
If equipped with an ashtray, it is
under the climate control system.
Press the ashtray cover to open. To
empty, grasp both sides of the
ashtray and remove.
Caution
If papers, pins, or other
flammable items are put in the
ashtray, hot cigarettes or other
smoking materials could ignite
them and possibly damage the
vehicle. Never put flammable
items in the ashtray.
Warning Lights,
Gauges, and
Indicators
Warning lights and gauges can
signal that something is wrong
before it becomes serious enough
to cause an expensive repair or
replacement. Paying attention to the
warning lights and gauges could
prevent injury.
Some warning lights come on briefly
when the engine is started to
indicate they are working. When
one of the warning lights comes on
and stays on while driving, or when
one of the gauges shows there may
be a problem, check the section that
explains what to do. Waiting to do
repairs can be costly and even
dangerous.
Lighting
151
If after signaling a turn or lane
change the arrow flashes rapidly or
does not come on, a signal bulb
might be burned out.
Have any burned out bulbs
replaced. If the bulb is not burned
out, check the fuse. See
Fuses and
Circuit Breakers

.
Fog Lamps
To turn on the fog lamps,
if equipped, the ignition and the
headlamps or parking lamps must
be on.
#
(Fog Lamps, If Equipped) :
Press to turn on or off. An indicator
light on the instrument cluster
comes on when the fog lamps
are on.
Some localities have laws that
require the headlamps to be on
along with the fog lamps.

Engine Oil
To ensure proper engine
performance and long life, careful
attention must be paid to engine oil.
Following these simple, but
important steps will help protect
your investment:
.
Always use engine oil approved
to the proper specification and of
the proper viscosity grade. See
Selecting the Right Engine Oil
in this section.
.
Check the engine oil level
regularly and maintain the
proper oil level. See
Checking
Engine Oil
and
When to Add
Engine Oil
in this section.
.
Change the engine oil at the
appropriate time. See
Engine Oil
Life System
0
230
.
.
Always dispose of engine oil
properly. See
What to Do with
Used Oil
in this section.
Checking Engine Oil
It is a good idea to check the engine
oil level at each fuel fill. In order to
get an accurate reading, the oil
must be warm and the vehicle must
be on level ground. The engine oil
dipstick handle is a loop. See
Engine Compartment Overview
0
223
for the location of the engine
oil dipstick.
Obtaining an accurate oil level
reading is essential:
1.
If the engine has been running
recently, turn off the engine and
allow several minutes for the oil
to drain back into the oil pan.
Checking the oil level too soon
after engine shutoff will not
provide an accurate oil level
reading.
{
Warning
The engine oil dipstick handle
may be hot; it could burn you.
Use a towel or glove to touch the
dipstick handle.

Electrical System
High Voltage Devices and
Wiring
{
Warning
Exposure to high voltage can
cause shock, burns, and even
death. The high voltage
components in the vehicle can
only be serviced by technicians
with special training.
High voltage components are
identified by labels. Do not
remove, open, take apart,
or modify these components.
High voltage cable or wiring has
orange covering or labels. Do not
probe, tamper with, cut, or modify
high voltage cable or wiring.
Electrical System
Overload
The vehicle has fuses and circuit
breakers to protect against an
electrical system overload.
When the current electrical load is
too heavy, the circuit breaker opens
and closes, protecting the circuit
until the current load returns to
normal or the problem is fixed. This
greatly reduces the chance of circuit
overload and fire caused by
electrical problems.
Fuses and circuit breakers protect
power devices in the vehicle.
Replace a bad fuse with a new one
of the identical size and rating.
If there is a problem on the road and
a fuse needs to be replaced, the
same amperage fuse can be
borrowed. Choose some feature of
the vehicle that is not needed to use
and replace it as soon as possible.
Headlamp Wiring
An electrical overload may cause
the lamps to go on and off, or in
some cases to remain off. Have the
headlamp wiring checked right away
if the lamps go on and off or
remain off.
250
Vehicle Care
Windshield Wipers
If the wiper motor overheats due to
heavy snow or ice, the windshield
wipers will stop until the motor cools
and will then restart.
Although the circuit is protected
from electrical overload, overload
due to heavy snow or ice may
cause wiper linkage damage.
Always clear ice and heavy snow
from the windshield before using the
windshield wipers.
If the overload is caused by an
electrical problem and not snow or
ice, be sure to get it fixed.
Fuses and Circuit
Breakers
The wiring circuits in the vehicle are
protected from short circuits by a
combination of fuses and circuit
breakers. This greatly reduces the
chance of damage caused by
electrical problems.
To check a fuse, look at the
silver-colored band inside the fuse.
If the band is broken or melted,
replace the fuse. Be sure to replace
a bad fuse with a new one of the
identical size and rating.
Fuses of the same amperage can
be temporarily borrowed from
another fuse location, if a fuse goes
out. Replace the fuse as soon as
possible.
To identify and check fuses, circuit
breakers, and relays, see
Engine
Compartment Fuse Block

Engine Compartment
Fuse Block
To remove the fuse block cover,
press the three retaining clips on the

Caution
Spilling liquid on any electrical
component on the vehicle may
damage it. Always keep the
covers on any electrical
component.

information regarding the tire
warranty and where to get
service. For additional
information refer to the tire
manufacturer.
{
Warning
.
Poorly maintained and
improperly used tires are
dangerous.
.
Overloading the tires can
cause overheating as a
result of too much
flexing. There could be a
blowout and a serious
crash. See

(Continued)
Warning (Continued)
.
Underinflated tires pose
the same danger as
overloaded tires. The
resulting crash could
cause serious injury.
Check all tires frequently
to maintain the
recommended pressure.
Tire pressure should be
checked when the tires
are cold.
.
Overinflated tires are
more likely to be cut,
punctured, or broken by
a sudden impact
such
as when hitting a pothole.
Keep tires at the
recommended pressure.
.
Worn or old tires can
cause a crash. If the
tread is badly worn,
replace them.
