Turn and Lane-Change Signals
The turn signal has an upward (for right) and a
downward (for left) position. 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.
To signal a lane change, 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.
An arrow on the instrument
panel cluster will flash in
the direction of the turn or
lane change.
If you signal a turn or a lane change and notice the
arrow flashing rapidly, a signal bulb may be burned out
and other drivers won’t see your turn signal.
If a bulb is burned out, have it replaced to help avoid an
accident. If the arrows don’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.

Accessory Power Outlet
With the accessory power outlet, you can plug in
auxiliary electrical equipment.
The accessory power outlet is located in the center
console storage area.
To use the outlet, the ignition must be in ON or ACC.
Pull down the cover the small cover to access the outlet.
NOTICE:
When using the accessory power outlet,
maximum electrical loads must not exceed
15 amps. Always turn off any electrical
equipment when not in use. Leaving electrical
equipment on for extended periods will drain
your battery.
These circuits are protected by a fuse and have
maximum current levels.
Certain power accessory plugs may not be compatible to
the power accessory outlet and could result in blown
vehicle or adapter fuses. If you experience a problem see
your dealer for additional information on the power
accessory plugs.
NOTICE:
Adding some electrical equipment to your vehicle
can damage it or keep other things from working
as they should. This wouldn’t be covered by your
warranty. Check with your dealer before adding
electrical equipment, and never use anything that
exceeds the amperage rating.
When adding electrical equipment, be sure to follow the
proper installation instructions included with the
equipment.
NOTICE:
Power outlets are designed for accessory plugs
only. Do not hang any type of accessory or
accessory bracket from the plug. Improper use of
the power outlet can cause damage not covered
by your warranty.

Oil Pressure Light
If you have a problem with
your oil, this light may stay
on after you start your
engine or come on when
you are driving.
This indicates that there is not enough oil pressure to
keep your engine properly lubricated and cool.
The engine could be low on oil, or have some other oil
related problem. Have it fixed right away.
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
Sometimes when the engine is idling at a stop, the
light may blink on and off. This is normal.
D
If you make a hard stop, the light may come on for a
moment. This is normal.
CAUTION:
Don’t keep driving if the oil pressure is low.
If you do, your engine can become so hot that it
catches fire. You or others could be burned.
Check your oil as soon as possible and have
your vehicle serviced.
NOTICE:
Damage to your engine from neglected oil
problems can be costly and is not covered by
your warranty.

Electrical System
Add-On Electrical Equipment
NOTICE:
Don’t add anything electrical to your vehicle
unless you check with your dealer first. Some
electrical equipment can damage your vehicle
and the damage wouldn’t be covered by your
warranty. Some add
-
on electrical equipment
can keep other components from working as
they should.
Your vehicle has an air bag system. Before attempting to
add anything electrical to your vehicle, see “Servicing
Your Air Bag
-
Equipped Vehicle” in the Index.
Headlamps Wiring
The headlamp wiring is protected by a circuit breaker.
An electrical overload will cause the lamps to go on and
off, or in some cases to remain off. If this happens, have
your headlamp wiring checked right away.
Windshield Wipers Fuses
The windshield wiper motor is protected by a circuit
breaker and a fuse. If the motor overheats due to heavy
snow or ice, the wiper will stop until the motor cools. If
the overload is caused by some electrical problem, and
not snow or ice, be sure to get it fixed.
Power Windows and Other Power Options
Circuit breakers 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.
6-72
Fuses and Circuit Breakers
The wiring circuits in your vehicle are protected from
short circuits by 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 correct size.
If you ever have a problem on the road and don’t have a
spare fuse, you can borrow one. Just pick some feature
of your vehicle that you can get along without
--
like the
radio or air conditioner
--
and use its fuse, if it is of the
value you need. Replace it as soon as you can.
Before replacing a fuse, turn every electrical switch off.
Instrument Panel Fuse Block
The instrument panel fuse block is located underneath
the instrument panel on the driver’s side of the vehicle.
