CAUTION! To avoid damage to the mirror during cleaning, never spray any cleaning solution directly onto the mirror. Apply the solution onto a clean cloth and wipe the mirror clean.

Outside Mirrors

To receive maximum benefit, adjust the outside mirror(s) to center on the adjacent lane of traffic and a slight overlap of the view obtained from the inside mirror.

NOTE: The passenger side convex outside mirror will give a much wider view to the rear, and especially of the lane next to your vehicle.

WARNING! Vehicles and other objects seen in the passenger side convex mirror will look smaller and farther away than they really are. Relying too much on your passenger side convex mirror could cause you to collide with another vehicle or other object. Use your inside mirror when judging the size or distance of a vehicle seen in the passenger side convex mirror.

Exterior Mirrors Folding Feature — If Equipped

Some models have exterior mirrors that are hinged. The hinge allows the mirror to pivot forward and rearward to resist damage. The hinge has three detent positions, full forward, full rearward, and normal.

Outside Mirror Auto Dimmer — If Equipped

This mirror automatically adjusts for annoying headlight glare from vehicles behind you. You can turn this feature on or off by pressing the button at the base of the Inside Rearview Mirror. This feature is also available on the passenger outside mirror of mirrors equipped with turn signal and approach lighting.

Outside Mirrors with Turn Signal & Approach Lighting — If Equipped

Driver and passenger outside mirrors with turn signal and approach lighting contain four LEDs, which are located in the upper outer corner of each mirror. Three of the LEDs are turn signal indicators, which flash with the corresponding turn signal lights in the front and rear of the vehicle. Turning on the hazard flashers will also activate these LEDs. The fourth (uppermost) LED supplies illuminated entry lighting, which turns on in both mirrors when you use the keyless entry transmitter or open any door. This LED shines outward to illuminate the front and rear door handles. It also shines downward to illuminate the area in front of the doors. The illuminated entry lighting fades to off after about 30 seconds or it will fade to off immediately once the ignition switch is turned ON from the LOCK position. NOTE: The approach lighting will not function when the gear selector lever is moved out of the P (PARK) position.

Tilt in Reverse Feature — If Equipped

The Tilt in Reverse feature tilts the outside rearview mirrors downward when the ignition switch is in the ON position and the transmission is in the R (Reverse) position. This feature provides the driver with a better view of the ground and vehicle in the area of the rear tires when backing up. The mirrors will move back to their previous position when the transmission is shifted out of R (Reverse). The Tilt in Reverse feature can be enabled or disabled through the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) — if equipped. For details, “Personal Settings (Customer Programmable Features)” under “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)” in Section 4 of this manual.

Power Remote Control Mirrors

The power mirror switch is located on the driver’s door trim panel next to the power door lock switch. A rotary knob selects the left mirror, right mirror, or off position.

After selecting a mirror, move the knob in the same direction you want the mirror to move. Use the center off position to guard against accidentally moving a mirror position.

Power Mirror Control

HANDS–FREE COMMUNICATION (UConnect™) — IF EQUIPPED

UConnect™ is a voice-activated, hands-free, in- vehicle communications system. UConnect™ allows you to dial a phone number with your cellular phone using simple voice commands (e.g., Call” “Mike” ”Work or Dial” “248-555-1212). Your cellular phone’s audio is transmitted through your vehicle’s audio system; the system will automatically mute your radio when using the UConnect™ system. NOTE: The UConnect™ system use requires a cellular phone equipped with the Bluetooth Hands-Free Profile, version 0.96 or higher. See www.chrysler.com/uconnect for supported phones. UConnect™ allows you to transfer calls between the system and your cellular phone as you enter or exit your vehicle, and enables you to mute the system’s microphone for private conversation. The UConnect™ phonebook enables you to store up to 32 names and four numbers per name. Each language has a separate 32-name phonebook accessible only in that language. This system is driven through your Bluetooth™ Hands-Free profile cellular phone. UConnect™ features Bluetooth™ technology — the global standard that enables different electronic devices to connect to each other without wires or a docking station, so UConnect works no matter where you stow your cellular phone (be it your purse, pocket, or briefcase), as long as your phone is turned on and has been paired to the vehicle’s UConnect™ system. The UConnect™ system allows up to seven cellular phones to be linked to system. Only one linked (or paired) cellular phone can be used with the system at a time. The system is available in English, Spanish, or French languages (as equipped).

The rearview mirror contains the microphone for the system and the control buttons that will enable you to access the system.

UConnect™ Switches

The UConnect™ system can be used with any HandsFree Profile certified Bluetooth™ cellular phone. See www.chrysler.com/uconnect for supported phones. If your cellular phone supports a different profile (e.g., Headset Profile), you may not be able to use any UConnect™ features. Refer to your cellular service provider or the phone manufacturer for details. The UConnect™ system is fully integrated with the vehicle’s audio system. The volume of the UConnect™ system can be adjusted either from the radio volume control knob, or from the steering wheel radio control (right switch), if so equipped. The radio display will be used for visual prompts from the UConnect™ system such as CELL or caller ID on certain radios.

Operations

Voice commands can be used to operate the UConnect™ system and to navigate through the UConnect™ menu structure. Voice commands are required after most UConnect™ system prompts. You will be prompted for a specific command and then guided through the available options.

• Prior to giving a voice command, one must wait for the voice on beep, which follows the Ready prompt or another prompt.

• For certain operations, compound commands can be used. For example, instead of saying Setup and then Phone Pairing, the following compound command can be said: Setup Phone Pairing.

• For each feature explanation in this section, only the combined form of the voice command is given. You can also break the commands into parts and say each part of the command, when you are asked for it. For example, you can use the combined form voice command Phonebook New Entry, or you can break the combined form command into two voice commands: Phonebook and New Entry. Please remember, the UConnect™ system works best when you talk in a normal conversational tone, as if speaking to some one sitting eight feet away from you.

Voice Command Tree

“Voice Tree” at the end of this section.

Help Command

If you need assistance at any prompt, or if you want to know your options are at any prompt, say Help following the voice on beep. The UConnect™ system will play all the options at any prompt if you ask for help. To activate the UConnect™ system from idle, simply press the ’Phone’ button and follow audible prompts for directions. All UConnect™ system sessions begin with a press of the ’Phone’ button on the mirror.

Cancel Command

At any prompt, after the voice on beep, you can say Cancel and you will be returned to the main menu. However, in a few instances the system will take you back to the previous menu.

ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROL

When engaged, this device takes over the accelerator operation at speeds greater than 25 mph (40 km/h).

Electronic Speed Control Operation

The speed control lever (located on the left side of the steering column) operates the system.

To Activate:

Push the speed control lever inward (toward the steering column) and release (“ON/OFF”). The indicator light in the lever (and in the
instrument cluster on some models) will illuminate to show that the speed control system is ON. To turn the system OFF, push the lever inward (toward the steering column) again and release. At this time, the system and the indicator light will turn off.

WARNING! Leaving the Electronic Speed Control system on when not in use is dangerous. You could accidentally set the system or cause it to go faster than you want. You could lose control and have an accident. Always leave the system OFF when you aren’t using it.

To Set At A Desired Speed:

When the vehicle reaches the speed desired, push the lever down and release (“SET/DECEL”). Remove your foot from the accelerator pedal and the vehicle will operate at the selected speed.

 NOTE:

• Speed control will only function in third, fourth, or fifth gear when in the Autostick Mode (if equipped).

• The speed control may not engage if a different size tire is installed on one wheel, such as the compact spare tire.

To Deactivate:

The system will disable Electronic Speed Control without erasing the memory if you:

 • Softly tap the brake pedal.

• Depress the brake pedal.

• Push the speed control lever away from you (“CANCEL”). Pushing and releasing the lever (“ON/OFF”) or turning off the ignition erases the set speed from memory.

To Resume Speed:

If you deactivated the speed control without erasing the set speed from memory and your vehicle speed is above 20 mph (32 km/h) you can resume the previous set speed. To do so, push the lever up and release (RES/ ACCEL), and then remove your foot from the accelerator pedal.

To Vary the Speed Setting:

When the speed control is set, you can increase speed by pushing the lever up and holding (“RES/ACCEL”). When the lever is released, a new set speed will be established. Pushing the lever up and releasing (“RES/ACCEL”) once will result in a 1 mph (1.6 km/h) speed increase. Each time the lever is pushed up and released, speed increases so that pushing the lever up and releasing three times will increase speed by 3 mph (4.8 km/h), etc. To decrease speed while speed control is set, push the lever down and hold (“SET/DECEL”). Release the lever when the desired speed is reached, and a new set speed will be established. Pushing down and releasing the lever (“SET/DECEL”) once will result in a 1 mph (1.6 km/h) speed decrease. Each time the lever is pushed down and released, speed decreases.

To Accelerate For Passing:

Depress the accelerator as you would normally. When the pedal is released, the vehicle will return to the set speed.

NOTE: The speed control system maintains speed up and down hills. A slight speed change on moderate hills is normal. Four speed automatic transmissions will experience a downshift to 3rd gear while climbing uphill or descending downhill. This downshift to 3rd gear is necessary to maintain vehicle set speed. On steep hills, a greater speed loss or gain may occur so it may be preferable to drive without speed control.

WARNING! Speed Control can be dangerous where the system can’t maintain a constant speed. Your vehicle could go too fast for the conditions, and you could lose control. An accident could be the result. Don’t use Speed Control in heavy traffic or on roads that are winding, icy, snow-covered, or slippery.

ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL (ACC) — IF EQUIPPED

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) increases the driving convenience provided by cruise control while traveling on highways and major roadways. However, it is not a safety system and not designed to prevent collisions. ACC will allow you to keep cruise control engaged in light to moderate traffic conditions without the constant need to reset your cruise control. ACC utilizes an infrared sensor designed to detect a vehicle directly ahead in your path within a distance of 328 ft (100 m).

 NOTE:

• If the sensor does not detect a vehicle directly ahead of you, ACC will function in the same way as standard cruise control system. For additional information, “Electronic Speed Control” in this section.

• If the ACC sensor detects a vehicle ahead, ACC will apply limited braking or acceleration automatically so that your vehicle maintains a preset following distance.

WARNING!

• Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is a convenience system. It is not a substitute for active driving involvement. It is always the driver’s responsibility to be attentive of road, traffic, and weather conditions, vehicle speed, distance to the vehicle ahead, and most importantly brake operation to ensure safe operation of the vehicle under all road conditions. Your complete attention is always required while driving to maintain safe control of your vehicle. Failure to follow these warnings can result in an accident or serious personal injury.

• The ACC system:

 − Does not react to pedestrians, oncoming vehicles, and stationary objects (i.e. a stopped vehicle in a traffic jam or a disabled vehicle).

− Does not predict the lane curvature or the movement of preceding vehicles and will not compensate for such changes. − Cannot take street, traffic, and weather conditions into account, and may be limited upon adverse sight distance conditions.

 − Does not always fully recognize complex driving conditions, which can result in wrong or missing distance warnings.

 − May not detect a vehicle ahead when strong light (for example, sunrise or sunset) is directly shining on the front of the vehicle.

− Can only apply a maximum of 25% of the vehicle’s braking capability, and will not bring the vehicle to a complete stop.

WARNING!

You should switch off the ACC system:

• When driving in fog; heavy rain; heavy snow; sleet; heavy traffic; and complex driving situations (i.e. in highway construction zones).

• When entering a turn lane or highway off ramp; when driving on roads that are winding, icy, snow-covered, slippery, or have steep uphill or downhill slopes; and when towing a trailer.

• When circumstances do not allow safe driving at a constant speed. Failure to follow these warnings can result in an accident or serious personal injury.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) Operation

The speed control lever (located on the left side of the steering column) operates the ACC system.

Activating Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

You can only activate ACC if the vehicle speed is between 25 mph and 100 mph (Canada 30 km/h and 180 km/h). When the system is turned on and in the READY state, the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) displays “ACC READY.” When the system is OFF, the EVIC displays “ACC OFF.”

NOTE: You cannot enable ACC under the following conditions:

 • When you apply the brakes. • When the parking brake is set.

• When the automatic transmission is in P (Park), R (Reverse), or N (Neutral).

 • When the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) is switched off.

• When pressing the RES/ACCEL switch without a previously set speed in memory.

To Activate:

Push the speed control lever inward (toward the steering column) and release (“ON/OFF”). The ACC menu in the EVIC displays “ACC READY.”

To turn the system OFF, push the lever inward (toward the steering column) again and release. At this time, the system will turn off and the EVIC will display “ACC OFF.”

WARNING! Leaving the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system on when not in use is dangerous. You could accidentally set the system or cause it to go faster than you want. You could lose control and have an accident. Always leave the system OFF when you aren’t using it.

To Set a Desired Speed:

When the vehicle reaches the speed desired, push the lever down and release (“SET/DECEL”). The EVIC will display the set speed.

Remove your foot from the accelerator pedal. If you do not, the vehicle may continue to accelerate beyond the set speed. If this occurs:

• The message “DRIVER OVERRIDE” will display in the EVIC.

• The system will not be controlling the distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead.

 • The vehicle speed will only be determined by the position of the accelerator pedal.

To Cancel:

The system will disable ACC without erasing the memory if:

• You softly tap the brake pedal. • You depress the brake pedal.

• You push the speed control lever away from you (“CANCEL”).

• If ESP/TCS activates

To Turn Off:

The system will turn off and erase the set speed in memory if:

• You push and release the lever (“ON/OFF”).

• You turn off the ignition.

• You switch off ESP.

 To Resume Speed:

 Push the lever up and release (“RES/ACCEL”), and then remove your foot from the accelerator pedal. The EVIC will display the last set speed.

WARNING! The Resume function should only be used if traffic and road conditions permit. Resuming a set speed that is too high or too low for prevailing traffic and road conditions could cause the vehicle to accelerate or decelerate to sharply for safe operation. This could cause an accident and/or serious injury.

To Vary the Speed Setting:

While ACC is set, you can increase the set speed by lifting and holding the lever up (“RES/ACCEL”). If the lever is continually held, the set speed will continue to increase in 5 mph (Canada 10 km/h) increments until the lever is released. The increase in set speed is reflected in the EVIC display. Lifting the lever up and releasing once will result in a 1 mph (Canada 1 km/h) increase in set speed. Each subsequent lift and release of the lever results in an increase of 1 mph (Canada 1 km/h). While ACC is set, the set speed can be decreased by pushing the lever down and holding (“SET/DECEL”). If the lever is continually held, the set speed will continue to decrease in 5 mph (Canada 10 km/h) increments until the lever is released. The decrease in set speed is reflected in the EVIC display. Pushing the lever down and releasing once will result in a 1 mph (Canada 1 km/h) decrease in set speed. Each subsequent push and release of the lever results in a decrease of 1 mph (Canada 1 km/h).

NOTE:

• When you use the lever to decelerate, if the engine’s braking power does not slow the vehicle sufficiently to reach the set speed, the brake system will automatically slow the vehicle.

 • The ACC system maintains set speed when driving up hill and down hill. However, a slight speed change on moderate hills is normal. In addition, downshifting may occur while climbing uphill or descending downhill. This is normal operation and necessary to maintain set speed.

Setting the Following Distance in ACC

The specified following distance for ACC can be set by varying the distance setting between long, medium, and short. Using this distance setting and the vehicle speed, ACC calculates and sets the distance to the vehicle ahead. This distance setting displays in the EVIC.

You can change the distance setting by pulling the lever toward you and release (“DISTANCE”). Each time this is done, the distance setting toggles between long, medium, and short. If there is no vehicle ahead, the vehicle will maintain the set speed. If a slower moving vehicle is detected in the same lane, the EVIC displays the “Sensed Vehicle Indicator” icon, and the system adjusts vehicle speed automatically to maintain the distance setting, regardless of the set speed.

The vehicle will then maintain the set distance until:

• The vehicle ahead accelerates to a speed above the set speed.

• The vehicle ahead moves out of your lane or view of the sensor.

• The vehicle ahead slows to a speed below 18 mph (26 km/h) and the system automatically disables itself.

 • The distance setting is changed.

• The system disengages. ( information on ACC Activation). The maximum braking applied by ACC is limited; however, the driver can always apply the brakes manually, if necessary.

A Proximity Warning will alert the driver if ACC predicts that its maximum braking level is not sufficient to maintain the set distance. If this occurs, a visual alert (“ATTENTION”) will flash in the EVIC and a chime will sound while ACC continues to apply its maximum braking capacity. When this occurs, you should immediately apply the brakes as needed to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) Menu

The EVIC displays the current ACC system settings. The EVIC is located in the upper part of the instrument cluster between the speedometer and the tachometer. The information it displays depends on ACC system status.

Press the Menu button (located on the steering wheel) repeatedly until one of the following displays in the EVIC:

ACC OFF

− When ACC is deactivated, the display will read “ACC OFF.”

ACC READY

− When ACC is activated, the display will read “ACC READY.”

ACC SET

− When ACC is set, the set speed will display.

The set speed will continue to display in place of the odometer reading when changing the EVIC display while ACC is set.

The ACC SET screen will display once again if any ACC activity occurs, which may include any of the following:

• Set speed change

• Distance setting change

• System cancel

• Acquisition/loss of Target

• Driver override

System off

• Proximity warning

 • ACC unavailable/service ACC warning

The EVIC will return to the last display selected after 5 seconds of no ACC activity.

Display Warnings & Maintenance

ACC Unavailable Warning

The ACC Unavailable Warning will display when conditions temporarily limit system performance. This most often occurs at times of poor visibility, such as in snow, fog, heavy rain, or when driving into direct sunlight (sunrise or sunset). The ACC system may also become temporarily unavailable due to obstructions, such as dirt or ice. In these cases, the EVIC will display “ACC UNAVAILABLE.”

If weather conditions are not a factor, the driver should examine the sensor. It may require cleaning or removal of an obstruction. The sensor is located behind the grille, slightly offset from the center of the grille.

ACC Sensor Location

To keep the ACC System operating properly, it is important to note the following maintenance items:

• Always keep the sensor clean. Carefully wipe the sensor lens with a soft cloth. Be cautious not to damage the sensor lens.

 • Do not remove any screws from the sensor or the sensor mount. Doing so could cause an ACC system malfunction or failure and require a sensor realignment.

 • If the sensor is damaged due to an accident, see your authorized dealer for service.

• Do not attach or install any accessories near the sensor, including transparent material or aftermarket grilles. Doing so could cause an ACC system failure or malfunction.

 When the condition that deactivated the system is no longer present, the system will return to the “ACC Off” state and will resume function by simply reactivating it.

 NOTE: Installing a vehicle front-end protector or an aftermarket grille or modifying the grille is not recommended. Doing so may block the sensor and inhibit ACC operation.

Service ACC Warning

 If the system turns off, and the EVIC displays “SERVICE ACC,” it indicates there is an internal system fault that requires service from an authorized dealer.

Precautions While Driving with ACC

In certain driving situations, ACC may have detection issues. In these cases, ACC may brake late or unexpectedly. The driver needs to stay alert and may need to intervene.

Offset Driving

ACC may not detect a vehicle in the same lane that is offset from your direct line of travel. There will not be sufficient distance to the vehicle ahead. The offset vehicle may move in and out of the line of travel, which can cause your vehicle to brake or accelerate unexpectedly.

Turns and Bends

 In turns or bends, ACC may detect a vehicle ahead too late or too early. This may cause your vehicle to brake late or unexpectedly. Give extra attention in curves and be ready to apply the brakes if necessary. Be sure to select an appropriate speed while driving in curves.

ACC may occasionally provide braking and/or a driver alert that you consider unnecessary. This may be the system’s response to signs, guardrails, and other stationary objects in a curve. This is normal operation and your vehicle does not require service.

Lane Changing ACC will not detect a vehicle until it is completely in the lane in which you are travelling. In the illustration shown, ACC has not yet detected the vehicle changing lanes, and it will not until it may be too late to take action. ACC will not detect a vehicle until it is completely in the lane. There will not be sufficient distance to the lanechanging vehicle. Always be attentive and ready to apply the brakes if necessary.

Using ACC on Hills

When driving on hills, ACC may not detect a vehicle in your lane. Depending on the speed, vehicle load, traffic conditions, and the steepness of the hills, ACC performance may be limited.

Narrow Vehicles

Some narrow vehicles traveling near the outer edges of the lane or edging into the lane are not detected until they have moved fully into the lane. There will not be sufficient distance to the vehicle ahead.

General Information

REAR PARK ASSIST SYSTEM — IF EQUIPPED

The Rear Park Assist System is a driver aid that senses for obstacles behind the vehicle. Refer to the Warnings, Cautions, and Notes in this section for system limitations and usage recommendations. The Rear Park Assist System is active when the driver shifts the transmission into the R (Reverse) position, and the parking brake is not applied, and the vehicle speed is less than 10 mph (16 km/h). The system can be turned on or off when the vehicle is in PARK through the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) — if equipped. For details,“Personal Settings (Customer Programmable Features)” under “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)” in Section 4 of this manual.

The system uses four sensors located in the rear bumper to scan for obstacles up to 59 inches (150 cm) away from the rear bumper fascia. The warning display located above the rear window provides both visible and audible warnings to indicate the range of the object.

Rear Park Assist Indicator

The warning display contains two sets of yellow and red LEDs, one set to warn of obstacles behind the left rear of the vehicle and the other set to warn of obstacles behind the right rear of the vehicle. The driver can view the LEDs either through the rear view mirror or by looking at the display above the rear window. The system dimly illuminates the two outer most yellow LEDs when it is ON and detecting no obstacles. The following chart shows the warning display operation when the system is detecting an obstacle:

WARNING DISPLAY DISTANCES

NOTE: The Rear Park Assist system will MUTE the radio, if on, when the system is sounding an audio tone.

WARNING!

 • Drivers must be careful when backing up even when using the Rear Park Assist System. Always check carefully behind your vehicle, look behind you, and be sure to check for pedestrians, animals, other vehicles, obstructions, and blind spots before backing up. You are responsible for safety and must continue to pay attention to your surroundings. Failure to do so can result in serious injury or death.

 • Before using the Rear Park Assist System, it is strongly recommended that the ball mount and hitch ball assembly is disconnected from the vehicle when the vehicle is not used for towing. Failure to do so can result in injury or damage to vehicles or obstacles because the hitch ball will be much closer to the obstacle than the rear fascia when the warning display turns the red LEDs ON. Also, the sensors could detect the ball mount and hitch ball assembly, depending on its size and shape, giving a false indication that an obstacle is behind the vehicle.

CAUTION!

• The Rear Park Assist System is only a parking aid and it is unable to recognize every obstacle, including small obstacles. Parking curbs might be temporarily detected or not detected at all. Obstacles located above or below the sensors will not be detected when they are in close proximity.

 • The vehicle must be driven slowly when using the Rear Park Assist System to be able to stop in time when the obstacle is detected. It is recommended that the driver looks over his/her shoulder when using the Rear Park Assist System.

NOTE:

• Ensure that the rear bumper is free of dirt and debris to keep the system operating properly.

• Jackhammers, large trucks, and other vibrations could affect the performance of the system.

If “Service Park Assist System” appears in the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) after making sure the rear bumper is clean please see your authorized dealer.

GARAGE DOOR OPENER (HomeLink) — IF EQUIPPED

The HomeLink Universal Transceiver replaces up to three remote controls (hand held transmitters) that operate devices such as garage door openers, motorized gates, or home lighting. It triggers these devices at the push of a button. The Universal Transceiver operates off your vehicle’s battery and charging system; no batteries are needed.

 NOTE: The HomeLink Universal Transceiver is disabled when the Vehicle Security Alarm is active. For additional information on HomeLink, call 1–800– 355–3515, or on the internet at www.homelink.com.

WARNING!

 • A moving garage door can cause injury to people and pets in the path of the door. People or pets could be seriously or fatally injured. Only use this transceiver with a garage door opener that has a “stop and reverse” feature as required by federal safety standards. This includes most garage door opener models manufactured after 1982. Do not use a garage door opener without these safety features it could cause injury or death. Call tollfree 1–800–355–3515 or, on the Internet at www.homelink.com for safety information or assistance.

• Vehicle exhaust contains carbon monoxide, a dangerous gas. Do not run the vehicle’s exhaust while training the transceiver. Exhaust gas can cause serious injury or death.

• Your motorized door or gate will open and close while you are training the Universal Transceiver. Do not train the transceiver if people or pets are in the path of the door or gate. A moving door or gate can cause serious injury or death to people and pets or damage to objects.

Programming HomeLink

NOTE: When programming a garage door opener, it is advised to park outside the garage. It is also recommended that you install a new battery in the hand-held transmitter of the device being programmed. This will allow for quicker training and accurate transmission of the radio-frequency signal. The Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) features a driver-interactive display, which includes HomeLink system messages. The EVIC is located in the upper part of the cluster between the speedometer and tachometer.

Electronic Vehicle Information Center

1. Press and hold the two outer HomeLink buttons. Release the buttons only when the EVIC displays “Channels Cleared” (after 20 seconds); however, do not hold the buttons for longer than 30 seconds. Do not repeat this step if programming a second or third hand-held transmitter to the remaining HomeLink buttons.

HomeLink Buttons

2. Position the end of your hand-held transmitter 1-3 inches (3-8 cm) away from the HomeLink buttons.

3. Simultaneously press and hold the HomeLink button (that you want to train) and the hand-held transmitter button. Do not release the buttons until Step 4 is complete.

NOTE: Some gate operators and garage door openers may require you to replace this Programming Step 3 with procedures noted under Gate Operator/Canadian Programming.

4. The EVIC will display “Channel X Training” (where X is Channel 1, 2, or 3). Release both buttons after the EVIC displays “Channel X Trained.”

NOTE: If the EVIC displays “Did Not Train,” repeat Steps 2–4.

5. Press and hold the just trained HomeLink button and observe the EVIC display. If the EVIC displays “Channel X Transmit” (where X is Channel 1, 2, or 3), then programming is complete, and your device should activate when the HomeLink button is pressed and released.

NOTE: To program the remaining two HomeLink buttons, begin with Programming Step 2. Do not repeat Step 1.

NOTE: If your garage door opener fails to respond to the programmed HomeLink Universal Transceiver, and your garage door opener is manufactured after 1995, it may have a multiple security code system (rolling code system). Please proceed to Steps 6–8 to complete the programming of a rolling code equipped device (most common garage door openers require this step.

6. At the garage door opener receiver (motor-head unit) in the garage, locate the learn or smart button. This can usually be found where the hanging antenna wire is attached to the motor-head unit.

 7. Firmly press and release the learn or smart button. (The name and color of the button may vary by manufacturer.) NOTE: You will have 30 seconds in which to initiate Step 8.

8. Return to the vehicle and firmly press, hold for two seconds, and release the programmed HomeLink button. Repeat the press/hold/release sequence a second time, and, depending on the brand of the garage door opener (or other rolling code equipped device), repeat this sequence a third time to complete the programming. HomeLink should now activate your rolling code equipped device.

NOTE: To program the remaining two HomeLink buttons, begin with Programming Step 2. Do not repeat Step 1. For questions or comments, please contact HomeLink at www.homelink.com or 1-800-355-3515.

Canadian Programming/Gate Programming

Canadian radio-frequency laws require transmitter signals to time-out (or quit) after several seconds of transmission, which may not be long enough for HomeLink to pick up the signal during programming. Similar to this Canadian law, some U.S. gate operators are designed to time-out in the same manner. If you live in Canada or you are having difficulties programming a gate operator by using the Programming procedures (regardless of where you live), replace Programming HomeLink Step 3 with the following:

NOTE: If programming a garage door opener or gate operator, it is advised to unplug the device during the cycling process to prevent possible overheating. 3. Continue to press and hold the HomeLink button while you press and release your hand-held transmitter every two seconds until the frequency signal is accepted successfully by HomeLink. The EVIC will display “Channel X Trained” (where X is Channel 1, 2, or 3). Proceed with Programming Step 4 to complete the procedure.

Using HomeLink

To operate, simply press and release the programmed HomeLink button. Activation will now occur for the trained device (i.e. garage door opener, gate operator, security system, entry door lock, home/office lighting, etc.). For convenience, the hand-held transmitter of the device may also be used at any time. In the event that there are still programming difficulties or questions, contact HomeLink at: www.homelink.com or 1-800-355- 3515.

Erasing HomeLink Buttons

To erase programming from the three buttons (individual buttons cannot be erased but can be reprogrammed — note below), follow the step noted:

• Press and hold the two outer HomeLink buttons. Release the buttons only when the EVIC displays “Channels Cleared” (after 20 seconds); however, do not hold the buttons for longer than 30 seconds. HomeLink is now in the train (or learning) mode and can be programmed at any time beginning with Programming Step 2.

Reprogramming a Single HomeLink Button

To program a device a previously trained HomeLink button, follow these steps:

1. Press and hold the desired HomeLink button. Do NOT release the button.

2. The EVIC will display “Channel X Transmit” (where X is Channel 1, 2, or 3) for 20 seconds and then change to “Channel X Training.” Without releasing the HomeLink button, proceed with Programming Step 2.

For questions or comments, contact HomeLink at www.homelink.com or 1-800-355-3515.

NOTE: The sunshade cannot be closed if the sunroof is open.

 Wind Buffeting

Wind buffeting can be described as the perception of pressure on the ears or a helicopter type sound in the ears. Your vehicle may exhibit wind buffeting with the windows down, or the sunroof (if equipped) in certain open or partially open positions. This is a normal occurrence and can be minimized. If the buffeting occurs with the rear windows open, then open the front and rear windows together to minimize the buffeting. If the buffeting occurs with the sunroof open, then adjust the sunroof opening to minimize the buffeting or open any window.

 Sunroof Maintenance

Use only a non-abrasive cleaner and a soft cloth to clean the glass panel.

Ignition Off Operation

 For vehicles not equipped with the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC), the power sunroof switch will remain active for 10 minutes after the ignition switch is turned off. Opening either front door will cancel this feature.

For vehicles equipped with the EVIC, the power sunroof switch will remain active for up to 60 minutes after the ignition switch is turned off. Opening either front door will cancel this feature.

For details, “Delay Power Off to Accessories Until Exit,” under “Personal Settings (Customer Programmable Features),” under “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)” in Section 4 of this manual.

Sunroof Fully Closed

Press the switch forward and release to ensure that the sunroof is fully closed.

ELECTRICAL POWER OUTLETS

There are two 12-volt electrical outlets on this vehicle. Both of the outlets are protected by a fuse. The 12-volt power outlet next to the ash receiver tray (if equipped with an optional Smoker’s Package) has power available only when the ignition is on. This outlet will also operate a conventional cigar lighter unit.

WARNING!

Do not place ashes inside the cubby bin located on the center console on vehicles not equipped with the ash receiver tray. A fire leading to bodily injury could result.

NOTE: If desired, the power outlet next to the ash receiver tray (if equipped) can be converted by your authorized dealer to provide power with the ignition switch in the LOCK position.

Front Power Outlet

The center console outlet is powered directly from the battery (power available at all times). Items plugged into this outlet may discharge the battery and/or prevent engine starting.

Center Console Power Outlet

Electrical Outlet Use With Engine Off

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 degrade the battery even more quickly. Only use these intermittently and with greater caution.

• 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 alternator to recharge the vehicle’s battery.

• 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

CUP HOLDERS

STORAGE

Console Features

The center console contains a large storage bin. The storage bin contains a four-slot coin holder (designed to hold various size coins) and a rubber mat at the bottom of the bin for noise control. The bin is large enough to hold a portable AC/DC converter to power laptops, games, or other electrical equipment. Two slots at the top right side of the bin provide clearance for power cords to pass conveniently out of the bin with the lid closed. This feature is ideal for games, laptops, cell phones, or other electrical equipment. The console’s front-opening lid allows for easy access to the storage bin for the both the driver and the front passenger. The inside portion of the arm rest lid contains a penholder, a tissue holder, and a tire gauge holder. In addition to the internal storage, the console contains two shift bezel cubby bins with rubber mats for holding small items. For vehicles not equipped with navigation radio, the console also contains an extra storage bin located below the climate control, which holds up to four CD jewel cases.

Cargo Area

The 60/40 split-folding rear seat provides cargo-carrying versatility. The seatbacks fold down easily by pulling nylon tabs between the seatbacks and the bolsters. When the seats are folded down, they provide a continuous, nearly flat extension of the load floor. When the seatback is folded to the upright position, make sure it is latched by strongly pulling on the top of the seatback above the seat strap.

WARNING!

• Be certain that the seatback is securely locked into position. If the seatback in not securely locked into position, the seat will not provide the proper stability for child seats and/or passengers. An improperly latched seat could cause serious injury.

• The cargo area in the rear of the vehicle (with the rear seatbacks in the locked-up or folded down position) should not be used as a play area by children when the vehicle is in motion. They could be seriously injured in an accident. Children should be seated and using the proper restraint system.

• To help protect against personal injury, passengers should not be seated in the rear cargo area. The rear cargo space is intended for load carrying purposes only, not for passengers, who should sit in seats and use seat belts.

WARNING!

• The weight and position of cargo and passengers can change the vehicle center of gravity and vehicle handling. To avoid loss of control resulting in personal injury, follow these guidelines for loading your vehicle:

• Always place cargo evenly on the cargo floor. Put heavier objects as low and as far forward as possible.

 • Place as much cargo as possible in front of the rear axle. Too much weight or improperly placed weight over or behind the rear axle can cause the rear of the vehicle to sway.

• Do not pile luggage or cargo higher than the top of the seatback. This could impair visibility or become a dangerous projectile in a sudden stop or collision.

LOAD LEVELING SYSTEM — IF EQUIPPED

The automatic load leveling system will provide a levelriding vehicle under most passenger and cargo loading conditions. A hydraulic pump contained within the shock absorbers raises the rear of the vehicle to the correct height. It takes approximately 1 mile (1.6 km) of driving for the leveling to complete depending on road surface conditions. If the leveled vehicle is not moved for approximately 15 hours, the leveling system will bleed itself down. The vehicle must be driven to reset the system.
