Turn and Lane-Change Signals
The turn signal has one upward (for right) and one
downward (for left) positions, which 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 returns automatically
to the original position.
An arrow on the instrument
panel cluster flashes in the
direction of the turn or
lane change.
To signal a lane change, slightly raise or lower the lever
until the arrow starts to flash and release the lever.
The turn signal flashes automatically three times.
As you signal a turn or a lane change, if the arrows
flash rapidly, a signal bulb may be burned out and other
drivers will not see your turn signal.
If a bulb is burned out, replace it to help avoid an
accident. If the arrows do not go on at all when you
signal a turn, check the fuse, see
Fuses and Circuit
Breakers on page 5-97
and for burned-out bulbs.

Accessory Power Outlet(s)
The accessory power outlets can be used to connect
electrical equipment such as a cellular phone or
CB radio.
The accessory power outlets are located on the rear
of the center storage console and in the rear cargo
compartment. There may be a power outlet located
inside the instrument panel storage area below
the climate controls.
To use the outlets, remove the cover. When not in use,
always cover the outlet with the protective cap.
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 you experience
a problem, see your dealer/retailer for additional
information on the accessory power outlet.
Notice:
Adding any electrical equipment to your
vehicle may damage it or keep other components
from working as they should. The repairs would

Dinghy Towing
Front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive vehicles may be
dinghy towed from the front. You can also tow these
vehicles by placing them on a platform trailer with all
four wheels off of the ground. For other towing options,
see “Dolly Towing” following in this section.
For vehicles being dinghy towed, the vehicle should be
run at the beginning of each day and at each RV fuel stop
for about five minutes. This will ensure proper lubrication
of transmission components.
To tow your vehicle from the front with all four wheels
on the ground:
1. Position and attach the vehicle to tow it behind the
recreational vehicle.
2. Turn the ignition key to ACC/ACCESSORY.
3. Shift the transmission to NEUTRAL (N).
4. Turn fog lamps and all accessories off.
5. Remove the IGN SW fuse from the Instrument
Panel Fuse Block. See
Instrument Panel Fuse
Block on page 5-97
.

If you tow your vehicle without performing
each of the steps listed under “Dinghy Towing,”
you could damage the automatic transmission.
Be sure to follow all steps of the dinghy towing
procedure prior to and after towing your vehicle.
Notice:
If your vehicle has a four-speed automatic
transmission, it can be dinghy towed from the front
for unlimited miles at 65 mph (105 km/h). If you
exceed 65 mph (105 km/h) while towing your vehicle,
it could be damaged. The repairs would not be
covered by your warranty. Never exceed 65 mph
(105 km/h) while towing your vehicle.
Once you have reached your destination:
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Shift the transmission to PARK (P).
4-42
3. Reinstall the IGN SW fuse into the Instrument
Panel Fuse Block.
4. Turn the ignition key to LOCK/OFF and remove the
key from the ignition.

Too much or too little fluid can damage the
transmission. Be sure that the transmission fluid
is at the proper level before towing with all four
wheels on the ground.
Notice:
Don’t tow a vehicle with the front drive
wheels on the ground if one of the front tires is a
compact spare tire. Towing with two different
tire sizes on the front of the vehicle can cause
severe damage to the transmission.
Dolly Towing (All-Wheel-Drive Vehicles)
All-wheel-drive vehicles should not be towed with two
wheels on the ground. To properly tow these vehicles,
they should be placed on a platform trailer with all four
wheels off of the ground or dinghy towed from the front.
Dolly Towing (Front-Wheel-Drive
Vehicles)
Front-wheel-drive VUE Red Line vehicles should not
be towed with two wheels on the ground. To properly
tow these vehicles, they should be placed on a platform
trailer with all four wheels off of the ground or dinghy
towed from the front.
To tow your front-wheel-drive vehicle from the front with
two wheels on the ground, do the following:
1. Put the front wheels on a dolly.
2. Move the shift lever to PARK (P).

Engine Oil
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 5-12
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.
5-15
4. Open the hood on the other vehicle and locate the
positive (+) and negative (
) terminal locations on
that vehicle.
Open the hood on your vehicle and find the remote
positive (+) and remote negative (
) jump starting
terminals.
The vehicle is equipped with a remote positive (+)
terminal. This is located in the engine compartment
on the driver’s side of the vehicle, on the underhood
fuse block. See
Engine Compartment Overview on
page 5-12
for more information on location.
To uncover the remote positive (+) terminal, press
the tab on the bottom of the fuse block and lift
the cover up.
The remote negative (
) terminal is a stud on the
driver’s side near the underhood fuse block.
See
Engine Compartment Overview on page 5-12
.
Place the negative (-) jumper cable clamp on
the negative (
) terminal on top of the battery.
{
CAUTION:
An electric fan can start up even when the
engine is not running and can injure you.
Keep hands, clothing and tools away from
any underhood electric fan.
5-38
To disconnect the jumper cables from both vehicles, do
the following:
1. Disconnect the black negative (
) cable from the
vehicle that had the dead battery.
2. Disconnect the black negative (
) cable from the
vehicle with the good battery.
3. Disconnect the red positive (+) cable from the
vehicle with the good battery.
4. Disconnect the red positive (+) cable from the other
vehicle.
5. Return the underhood fuse block cover to its
original position, if applicable.
All-Wheel Drive
If you have an all-wheel-drive vehicle, be sure to
perform the lubricant checks described in this section.
Transfer Case
When to Check and Change Lubricant
Refer to the Maintenance Schedule to determine how
often to check the lubricant and when to change it.
See
Scheduled Maintenance on page 6-3
.
How to Check Lubricant
A. Fill Plug
B. Drain Plug
To get an accurate reading, the vehicle should be on a
level surface.
If the level is below the bottom of the filler plug hole,
located on the transfer case, you’ll need to add
some lubricant. Add enough lubricant to raise the
level to the bottom of the filler plug hole. A fluid loss
could indicate a problem; check and have it repaired,
if needed.

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 1-70
.
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.
5-96
Fuses and Circuit Breakers
The wiring circuits in your vehicle are protected from
short circuits by fuses. This greatly reduces the chance of
circuit overload and fire caused by electrical problems.
There are two fuse blocks — the underhood fuse block,
and the instrument panel fuse block.
To identify and check fuses and relays, refer to the
Fuse Usage Chart on the inside surface of the
fuse panel door.
Instrument Panel Fuse Block
The instrument panel fuse block is located on the
passenger side of the lower console.
Pull the latch of the fuse box cover straight back to
access the fuses.
