Turn
and
Lane
Change
Signals
The turn
signal
has
two
upward
(for
right)
and
two
downward
(for left) positions.
These
positions
allow
you
to
signal
a
turn
or
a
lane
change.
To
signal a
turn,
move
the
lever
all
the
way
up
or
down.
When
the
turn
is
finished,
the
lever
will
return
automatically.
An
arrow
on
the
instrument
panel
will
flash
in the
direction of the turn or
lane change.
To signal
a
lane
change,
just raise
or
lower
the
lever
until
the
arrow
starts
to
flash. Hold it there
until
you
complete
your
lane
change.
The
lever will
return
by
itself
when
you
release
it.
A
warning
chime
signal
will
come
on
if
you
have left
your
turn
signal
on
for
more
than
3/4
mile
(1
km).
As
you
signal
a
turn
or
a
lane
change,
if
the
arrow
flashes
rapidly,
a
signal
bulb
may
be
burned
out and
other
drivers
won’t
see
your
turn
signal.
If a
bulbis burned
out,
replace
it to
help
avoid
an
accident.
If
the
arrow
doesn’t
go
on
at
all
when
you
signal
a
turn,
check for burned-out
bulbs
and
then
check
the
fuse
(see
Fuses
and
Circuit
Breakers”
in the
Index).

Your instrument
panel
is
designed
to
let you
know
at
a
glance
how
your
vehicle
is
running.
You’ll
know
how
fast
you’re
going,
how
much
fuel you’re
using,
and
many
other
things
you’ll
need
to
drive
safely

Have
you
recently
changed
brands
of fuel?
If
so,
be sure to fuel your
vehicle
with
quality
fuel (see
“Fuel” in the Index).
Poor
fuel quality
will cause your
engine
not
to
run
as
efficiently as designed.
You
may
notice
this
as
stalling
after
start-up,
stalling
when you
put the vehicle into gear,
misfiring,
hesitation
on
acceleration or stumbling
on
acceleration.
(These
conditions
may
go
away
once
the
engine
is warmed
up.)
This
will
be
detected
by
the system
and
cause
the light
to
turn
on.
If
you
experience one or
more of these
conditions,
change the fuel brand
you
use.
It will
require
at
least one
full tank of the
proper fuel to
turn
the light
off.
If
none of the above
steps
have
made
the light turn
off,
have
your
retailer
or qualified
service
center
check
the
vehicle. Your retailer
has
the proper test equipment
and
diagnostic
tools
to fix any
mechanical
or
electrical
problems
that
may
have
developed.
Oil
Pressure
Warning
Light
If
you
have
a
low
engine
oil
pressure
problem,
this
light
will
stay on after
you
start
your
engine,
or
come on
and
you
will
hear
a
chime
when
you
are
driving.
This
indicates
that
your
engine
is not
receiving
enough
oil. The engine
could
be
low
on
oil,
or
could
have
some
other oil problem.
Have
it fixed
immediately.
When the ignition is on
but the engine
is
not
running,
the light will come on as
a
test
to
show
you it
is
working,
but the light will
go
out when the en-gine
is
running.
If
it doesn’t
come
on
with
the
ignition
on,
you may have
a
problem
with
the fuse or bulb.
Have
it
fixed right away.

Headlamp
Wiring
The
headlamp
wiring
is
protected
by
fuses,
one
for each
headlamp,
in
the
fuse block.
An
electrical
overload
will
cause
the
lamps
to
turn
off.
If
this
happens,
have
your
headlamp
wiring
checked
right
away.
.dshield
Wipers
rne windshield
wiper
motor
is
protected by
an internal
circuit
breaker
and
a
fuse.
If
the
motor
overheats
due
to
heavy
snow,
etc.,
the
wiper
will
stop
until
the
motor
cools.
If
the
overload is caused
by
some
electrical
problem
and
not
snow,
etc.,
be
sure
to
get
it fixed.
Power
Windows
and
Other
Power
Options
Circuit
breakers
in
the
fuse block
protect
the
power
windows
and
other
power
accessories.
When
the
current
load
is
too
heavy,
the
circuit
breaker
opens
and
closes,
protecting
the
circuit
until
the
problem
is
fixed
or
goes
away.

Fuses
and
Circuit
Breakers
The
wiring
circuits
in your
vehicle
are
protected
from
short circuits by a combination of fuses, circuit
breakers
and fusible thermal
links
in the
wiring itself.
This
greatly
reduces
the
chance
of fires
caused
by
electrical
problems.
Look at
the
silver-colored
band
inside the fuse.
If
the
band is broken or melted, replace the fuse. Be
sure
you
replace a bad fuse with a new one of the
identical
size
and rating.
If
you
ever
have
a problem
on
the
road
and
don’t
have
a
spare-
fuse, you
can
borrow
one
that
has
the
same
amperage.
Just pick a feature
of
your
vehicle
that
you
can
get
along
without
--
like the
radioor cigarette
lighter
--
and
use its fuse,
if
it
is
the
correct
amperage.
Replace it as
soon
as
you
can.
Also,
there are
spare
fuses
in the left side
instrument
panel
fuse block.
There
are
three
fuse blocks in your
vehicle:
two

and
the
