Windshield Washer
{
CAUTION
In freezing weather, do not use
your washer until the windshield
is warmed. Otherwise the
washer fluid can form ice on
the windshield, blocking your
vision.
Pull the windshield wiper lever
toward you to spray washer fluid
on the windshield. The wipers will
run for a few cycles to clear the
windshield. For more wash cycles,
pull the lever forward and hold.
Rear Window Wiper/
Washer
For vehicles with the rear wiper/
washer feature, it is turned on by
moving the windshield wiper lever.
To turn the rear wiper on or off,
push the windshield wiper lever.
To turn on the rear washer, hold the
windshield wiper lever toward the
front of the vehicle to spray the rear
window.
The rear wiper turns on
automatically when the windshield
wiper is turned on and the shift lever
is in REVERSE (R).
The rear window washer uses the
same fluid bottle as the windshield
washer. However, the rear window
washer will run out of fluid before the
windshield washer. If washer fluid
sprays onto the windshield but not
the rear window, check the fluid
level. See
Windshield Washer
Fluid on page 9-20
.
For information on replacing the
rear wiper blades, see
Windshield
Wiper Blade Replacement on
page 9-21
.
Accessory Power
Outlet(s)
The 12-volt accessory power outlets
can be used to connect electrical
equipment, such as a cellular phone.
There may be a accessory power
outlet located inside the console
below the climate controls.
Notice:
Leaving electrical
equipment on for extended
periods will drain the battery.
Always turn off electrical
equipment when not in use and
do not plug in equipment that
exceeds the maximum 20 ampere
rating.
Certain electrical accessories may
not be compatible with the accessory
power outlet and could result in
blown vehicle or adapter fuses.
If there is a problem, see your
dealer/retailer for additional
information on the accessory
power outlet.

Instruments and Controls
DIC Warnings and
Messages (Base and
Uplevel Systems)
Messages are displayed on the DIC
to notify the driver that the status of
the vehicle has changed and that
some action may be needed by
the driver to correct the condition.
Multiple messages may appear
one after another.
The DIC monitors some fluid levels,
battery of the Remote Keyless Entry
(RKE) transmitter, the theft-deterrent
system on vehicles with this feature,
the brake light switch, and important
exterior lights, including wiring and
fuses.
Some messages may not require
immediate action, but you can
acknowledge that you received the
messages and to clear them from the
display by doing one of the following:
Press the OK button on the base
level audio system.
Press the multifunction knob, if
your vehicle has this feature,
on the uplevel audio system.
Press the left thumbwheel, if your
vehicle has this feature, on the
steering wheel.
If there are several warning
messages, acknowledge them
one at a time.
Some messages cannot be cleared
from the DIC display because they
are more urgent. These messages
require action before they can
be cleared. You should take any
messages that appear on the display
seriously and remember that clearing
the messages will only make the
messages disappear, not correct
the problem.
Warning messages for the uplevel
DIC follow. On the base level
DIC, messages appear in an
abbreviated form.
Brakelight check - - -
This message displays when there
is a problem with the vehicle lighting.
The source of the problem is
displayed as text. For example,
“Brakelight check right”.

Engine Oil
If the low oil level light appears on
the instrument cluster, check
the engine oil level right away.
See
Low Oil Level Light on
page 4-23
. You should check the
engine oil level regularly; this is just
a reminder.
Checking Engine Oil
It is a good idea to check the
engine oil every time you get fuel.
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 yellow loop. See
Engine
Compartment Overview on page 9-6
for the location of the engine oil
dipstick.
1. Turn off the engine and give the
oil several minutes to drain back
into the oil pan. If you do not
do this, the oil dipstick might not
show the actual level.
2. Pull the dipstick and clean it with
a paper towel or cloth, then push
it back in all the way. Remove it
again, keeping the tip down
and check the level.

Electrical System
Add-On Electrical
Equipment
Notice:
Do not add anything
electrical to your vehicle unless
you check with your dealer/retailer
first. Some electrical equipment
can damage your vehicle and the
damage would not be covered by
your warranty. Some add-on
electrical equipment can keep
other components from working
as they should.
Add-on equipment can drain your
vehicle’s battery, even if your vehicle
is not operating.
Your vehicle has an airbag system.
Before attempting to add anything
electrical to your vehicle, see
Servicing Your Airbag-Equipped
Vehicle on page 1-34
.
Headlamp Wiring
The headlamp wiring is protected
by fuses in the fuse block.
An electrical overload will cause
the lamps to turn off. If this happens,
have your headlamp wiring checked
right away.
Vehicle Service and Care
9-33
Windshield Wiper Fuses
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 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
The wiring circuits in your 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.
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.
There are two fuse blocks in
your vehicle: one in the engine
compartment and one in the trunk.
There is a fuse puller located
on the rear compartment fuse block.
See
Rear Compartment Fuse
Block on page 9-36
. It can be used
to easily remove fuses from the
fuse block.
Engine Compartment
Fuse Block
The engine compartment fuse block
is located in the front left side of
the engine compartment.
Engine
Compartment Overview on
page 9-6
.
To open the fuse block cover,
insert a tool into the latch and turn.
Pull up on the cover to remove.
Notice:
Spilling liquid on any
electrical components on
your vehicle may damage it.
Always keep the covers on any
electrical component.

Tires
Your new vehicle comes with
high-quality tires made by
a leading tire manufacturer.
If you ever have questions about
the tire warranty and where to
obtain service, see the “Limited
Warranty, Maintenance and
Owner Assistance Information”
manual for details.
{
CAUTION
Poorly maintained and
improperly used tires are
dangerous.
Overloading your tires can
cause overheating as a
result of too much flexing.
You could have an air-out
and a serious accident.
See
Loading the Vehicle
on page 8-30
.
(Continued)
CAUTION
(Continued)
Underinflated tires pose
the same danger as
overloaded tires.
The resulting accident
could cause serious
injury. Check all tires
frequently to maintain the
recommended pressure.
Tire pressure should be
checked when your tires
are cold. See
Inflation - Tire
Pressure on page 9-46
.
Overinflated tires are more
likely to be cut, punctured,
or broken by a sudden
impact — such as when
you hit a pothole. Keep
tires at the recommended
pressure.
