Enhanced Accident Response System
If the airbags deploy after an impact and the electrical
system
remains
functional,
vehicles
equipped
with
power door locks will unlock automatically, the engine
will shut off and the hazard lights will turn on. In
addition, approximately five seconds after the vehicle has
stopped moving, the interior lights will light until the
ignition switch is turned OFF.
Airbag Light
You will want to have the airbags ready to
inflate for your protection in an impact. While
the airbag system is designed to be mainte-
nance free, if any of the following occurs, have
an authorized dealer service the system promptly:
The airbag light does not come on or flickers during
the 2.5 to 8 seconds when the ignition switch is first
turned ON.
The light remains on or flickers after the 2.5 to 8
seconds interval.
The light flickers or comes on and remains on while
driving.
NOTE:
If the speedometer, tachometer or any engine
related gauges are not working, the airbag control mod-
ule may also be disabled. The airbags may not be ready
to inflate for your protection. Promptly check the fuse
block for blown fuses. Refer to “Fuse Block” in Section 7.
See your authorized dealer if the fuse is good.

THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE STARTING YOUR VEHICLE
the rear windows open, open the front and rear windows
together to minimize the buffeting. If the buffeting occurs
with the sunroof open, adjust the sunroof opening to
minimize the buffeting, or open any window.
Sunroof Maintenance
Use only a nonabrasive cleaner and a soft cloth to clean
the glass panel.
ELECTRICAL POWER OUTLETS
This vehicle has three 12 Volt auxiliary power outlets that
can provide up to 20 Amps of current for accessories
designed for use with the standard power outlet adapt-
ers.
The
outlet
located
in
the
lower
portion
of
the
instrument panel has a snap on plastic cap so that it can
be covered when not in use. As a safety precaution, the
outlet in the instrument panel only operates with the
ignition switch ON. When the optional Cigar Lighter
heating element is used, it heats when pushed in and
pops out automatically when ready for use.
To preserve
the heating element, do not hold the lighter in the
heating position.
There are two additional 12 Volt (20 total Amps for both
outlets) power outlets, one located in the storage bin of
the center console and another located in the right rear
cargo
area.
These
outlets
can
be
configured
by
the
customer
to
operate
only
when
the
ignition
is
ON
(switched battery fed) or with the ignition ON or OFF
(battery fed) to allow for cellular telephone charging and
operation while the ignition is OFF.
NOTE:
All accessories connected to these outlets should
be removed or turned OFF when the vehicle is not in use
to protect the battery against discharge (unless the cus-
tomer has configured the fuse block to switched battery
feed). (See page 186 for more information.)

Electrical Outlet Use With Engine OFF (Battery
Fed Configuration)
CAUTION!
Many accessories that can be plugged in draw
power from the vehicle’s battery, even when not in
use
(i.e.,
cellular
phones,
etc.).
Eventually,
if
plugged in long enough, the vehicle’s battery will
discharge
sufficiently
to
degrade
battery
life
and/or prevent engine starting.
Accessories that draw higher power (i.e., coolers,
vacuum cleaners, lights, etc.) will discharge the
battery even more quickly. Only use these inter-
mittently and with greater caution.
(Continued)
CAUTION! (Continued)
After the use of high power draw accessories or
long periods of the vehicle not being started (with
accessories still plugged in), the vehicle must be
driven a sufficient length of time to allow the
generator to recharge the vehicle’s battery.
Configuring Power Outlets
To configure the outlets, be sure the ignition is OFF before
removing the fuse. The “reconfigurable” fuse location is a
special design that allows the fuse to be installed in two
different ways. If the fuse is located in the
9
Upper or Top
Position
9
the outlets will work at all times. If the fuse is
located in the
9
Lower or Bottom Position
9
the power
outlets will only work when the ignition is ON.

NOTE:
The fuse block is located in the left side kick
panel behind a removable cover near the park brake
pedal. A fuse puller is attached to the inside surface of the
fuse panel cover to aid in removing fuses, if necessary.

INSTRUMENT CLUSTER DESCRIPTION
1. Fuel Gauge
The fuel gauge shows level of fuel in the tank when
ignition switch is in the ON position.
2. Temperature Gauge
The temperature gauge shows engine coolant tempera-
ture. Any reading within the normal range indicates that
the engine cooling system is operating satisfactorily. The
gauge pointer will likely indicate a higher temperature
when driving in hot weather, up mountain grades, or
when towing a trailer. It should not be allowed to exceed
the upper limits of the normal operating range.
CAUTION!
Do not leave your vehicle unattended with the en-
gine running as you would not be able to react to the
temperature indicator if the engine overheats.
The gauge pointer will remain near its last reading when
the engine is turned off. It will return to a true reading
when the engine is restarted.
3. Turn Signal Indicators
When a turn signal is activated, a right-pointing or
left-pointing arrow lights up and flashes to indicate the
direction
of
the
turn.
These
indicators
also
indicate
proper operation of the front and rear turn signal lights.
If either indicator flashes at a faster rate than normal,
check for a defective bulb. If either indicator fails to light
up when the lever is moved, check for a defective fuse or
turn signal LED. A single chime is activated when the
left/right turn signal is left on with the engine RPM
vehicle speed greater than 15 mph (24 km/h) for more
than one mile.
4. Low Fuel Warning Light
This indicator lights when the fuel gauge reads
1/16 of a tank or less.

Vehicle Warning Messages
For non-Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)
equipped vehicles, when the appropriate conditions ex-
ist, messages such as “door ajar” (indicates that a door(s)
may be ajar), “gASCAP” (which indicates that your gas
cap is possibly loose or damaged),
9
CHANgE OIL”
(indicates that the engine oil should be changed), “Lo-
WASH” (low washer fluid), and “noFUSE” (indicates
that the IOD fuse is removed from the Integrated Power
Module), will display in the odometer.
NOTE:
If the vehicle is equipped with an EVIC, most
warnings will display in the EVIC. For additional infor-
mation, refer to “Electronic Vehicle Information Center
(EVIC) — If Equipped” in Section 3.
The outside temperature will display in the odometer for
non-EVIC equipped vehicles. Pressing the trip odometer
RESET button toggles the feature back to the odometer.
Change Oil Message
Your vehicle is equipped with an engine oil change
indicator system. The “Change Oil” message will flash in
the instrument cluster odometer for approximately 12
seconds after a single chime has sounded to indicate the
next scheduled oil change interval. The engine oil change
indicator system is duty cycle based, which means the
engine oil change interval may fluctuate dependent upon
your personal driving style.
Unless reset, this message will continue to display each
time you turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN
position. To turn off the message temporarily, press and
release the Trip Odometer button on the instrument
cluster. To reset the oil change indicator system (after
performing the scheduled maintenance) refer to the fol-
lowing procedure.
1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position
(Do not
start the engine).

FUSES
CAUTION!
When replacing a blown fuse, it is important to use
only a fuse having the correct amperage rating. The
use of a fuse with a rating other than indicated may
result in a dangerous electrical system overload. If a
properly rated fuse continues to blow, it suggests a
problem in the circuit that must be corrected.
Interior Fuses
The fuse block contains blade-type mini-fuses, relays,
and circuit breakers for high-current circuits. It is located
in the left kick panel. It is accessible through a snap-in
cover.

INSTALLATION OF RADIO TRANSMITTING
EQUIPMENT
Special design considerations are incorporated into this
vehicle’s electronic system to provide immunity to radio
frequency signals. Mobile two-way radios and telephone
equipment must be installed properly by trained person-
nel. The following must be observed during installation.
The positive power connection should be made directly
to the battery and fused as close to the battery as possible.
The negative power connection should be made to body
sheet metal adjacent to the negative battery connection.
This connection should not be fused.
Antennas for two-way radios should be mounted on the
roof or the rear area of the vehicle. Care should be used
in mounting antennas with magnet bases. Magnets may
affect the accuracy or operation of the compass on
vehicles so equipped.
The antenna cable should be as short as practical and
routed away from the vehicle wiring when possible. Use
only fully shielded coaxial cable.
Carefully match the antenna and cable to the radio to
ensure a low Standing Wave Ratio (SWR).
Mobile radio equipment with output power greater than
normal may require special precautions.
All installations should be checked for possible interfer-
ence between the communications equipment and the
vehicle’s electronic systems.
