During normal operation, the THEFT SYSTEM light
will go off approximately five seconds after the key is
turned to the ON ignition position.
If the engine stalls and the THEFT SYSTEM light
flashes, wait until the light stops flashing before trying
to restart the engine. Remember to release the key from
START as soon as the engine starts.
If the engine is running and the THEFT SYSTEM light
comes on, you will be able to restart the engine if you
turn the engine off. However, your Passlock system is
not working properly and must be serviced by your
dealer. Your vehicle is not protected by Passlock at this
time. You may also want to check the fuses (see “Fuses
and Circuit Breakers” in the Index). See your dealer
for service.

New Vehicle “Break
-
In”
NOTICE:
Your vehicle doesn’t need an elaborate
“break
-
in.” But it will perform better in the long
run if you follow these guidelines:
D
Don’t drive at any one speed
--
fast or
slow
--
for the first 500 miles (805 km).
Don’t make full
-
throttle starts.
D
Avoid making hard stops for the first
200 miles (322 km) or so. During this time
your new brake linings aren’t yet broken
in. Hard stops with new linings can mean
premature wear and earlier replacement.
Follow this breaking
-
in guideline every
time you get new brake linings.
D
Don’t tow a trailer during break
-
in.
See “Towing a Trailer” in the Index for
more information.

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.
As you signal a turn or a lane change, if the arrows flash
rapidly, a signal bulb may be burned out and other
drivers won’t see your turn signal.
If a bulb is burned out, replace it to help avoid an
accident. If the arrows don’t go on at all when you
signal a turn, check the fuse (see “Fuses and Circuit
Breakers” in the Index) and for burned
-
out bulbs.
Headlamp High/Low Beam Changer
To change the headlamps from low beam to high or high
beam to low, pull the turn signal lever all the way
toward you. Then release it.
When the high beams are
on, this light on the
instrument panel will also
be on.
Flash-to-Pass
This feature lets you use your high
-
beam headlamps to
signal a driver in front of you that you want to pass.
To use it, pull the turn signal/multifunction lever toward
you until the high
-
beam headlamps come on, then
release the lever to turn them off.

Ashtrays and Cigarette Lighter
(If Equipped)
To use the lighter, push it in all the way and let go.
When it’s ready, it will pop back out by itself.
NOTICE:
Don’t hold a cigarette lighter in with your hand
while it is heating. If you do, it won’t be able to
back away from the heating element when it’s
ready. That can make it overheat, damaging the
lighter and the heating element.
To clean the center console ashtray, remove the entire
ashtray and empty it. The ashtray can be placed in the
rear cupholder for the rear seat passengers to use.
NOTICE:
Don’t put papers and other things that burn into
your ashtrays. If you do, cigarettes or other
smoking materials could set them on fire,
causing damage.
Sun Visors
To block out glare, you can swing down the visors. You
can also swing them to the side.
Accessory Power Outlet
(If Equipped)
The accessory power outlet is located in the center
console to the left of the shift lever. Just remove the plug
from the outlet and follow the proper installation
instructions that are included with any electrical
equipment you install.
These circuits are protected by a fuse and have
maximum current levels.

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 dealer or qualified service center check the
vehicle. Your dealer has the proper test equipment and
diagnostic tools to fix any mechanical or electrical
problems that may have developed.
Oil Pressure Light
If you have a low engine oil
pressure problem, this light
will
stay on
after you start
your engine, or
come on
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.
The oil light could also come on in
three other situations:
D
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 you turn the
ignition to START. 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.
D
If you’re idling at a stop sign, the light may blink on
and then off.
D
If you make a hard stop, the light may come on for a
moment. This is normal.

Towing Your Vehicle from the
Front 3-Speed Automatic Transaxle
(With a Dolly)
You may tow your vehicle using a towing dolly if you
have a three
-
speed automatic transaxle. Follow these steps:
1.
Put the front wheels on a dolly.
2.
Set the parking brake.
3.
Open the fuse panel on the driver’s side of the
instrument panel. Remove the fuse labeled
CLS/PCM. This will keep your battery from draining
while towing.
4.
Turn the ignition key to OFF to unlock the steering
wheel. See “Ignition Positions” in the Index.
5.
Clamp the steering wheel in a straight
-
ahead position
with a clamping device designed for towing.
6.
Release the parking brake.
When you are finished towing, make sure you replace
the CLS/PCM fuse in the instrument panel fuse block.
See “Fuses and Circuit Breakers” in the Index.

Towing Your Vehicle From the
Front 4-Speed Automatic and
5-Speed Manual Transaxles
(Without a Dolly)
You may tow your vehicle with all four wheels on the
ground if you have a four
-
speed automatic or a
five
-
speed manual transaxle. Follow these steps:
1.
Set the parking brake.
2.
Open the fuse panel on the driver’s side of the
instrument panel. Remove the fuse labeled
CLS/PCM. This will keep your battery from draining
while towing.
3.
Turn the ignition key to OFF to unlock the
steering wheel.
4.
Shift your transaxle to NEUTRAL (N).
5.
Release the parking brake.
When you are finished towing, make sure you replace
the CLS/PCM fuse in the instrument panel fuse block.
See “Fuses and Circuit Breakers” in the Index.
NOTICE:
Make sure that the towing speed does not exceed
65 mph (110 km/h), or your vehicle could be
badly damaged.

Headlamp Wiring
The headlamp wiring is protected by fuses. Should your
headlamps fail to function, have your headlamp fuses
checked right away.
Windshield Wipers Fuse
The windshield wiper motor is protected by a 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, have
it fixed.
Power Windows and Other Power Options
Circuit breakers in the fuse panel 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.
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. This greatly reduces the
chance of damage 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 some feature of your vehicle that
you can get along without
--
like the radio or cigarette
lighter
--
and use its fuse if it is the correct amperage.
Replace it as soon as you can.
There are two fuse blocks in your vehicle: the
instrument panel fuse block and the engine compartment
fuse block.
