Headlights and Exterior Lights
The headlight switch is located on the multifunction lever to the left of the steering column.

To turn ON your front parking lights, tail lights, license plate light and instrument panel lights, turn the headlight switch to THIS position. To turn ON the front headlights, turn the switch to THIS position. All the other lights will stay ON.

To turn ON the high beam headlights, push this lever forward. You'll see a blue indicator light illuminate. To return to low beam pull the lever back toward you. The blue light will turn off. To make your high beam headlights flash ON and OFF, pull the lever toward you and release it.

To signal turns, move it upward for a right turn, down for a left turn. When you've completed the turn, the signal cancels automatically. To signal a lane change, push and hold this lever lightly up or down, not as far as for a complete turn. Release the lever to finish signaling the lane change.

Fog lights create a wide beam pattern, focused lower than the headlights. This minimizes reflected light and helps you see better in foggy conditions. To use the fog lights, your headlights must be ON and low beam selected. Rotate the collar to THIS position and your fog lights will come ON. Rotate the collar to the OFF position to return to low beam and deactivate the fog lights. If you turn the high beam headlights ON, the fog lights will automatically turn OFF.

You can preset the headlights to automatically operate based on exterior lighting conditions. To activate this system, simply turn the headlight switch to the AUTO position, then turn on the ignition. To turn the system OFF, turn the headlight switch to any other setting. The Autolight system will also keep the headlights ON for a period of time after you turn the ignition OFF and open any doors. There is a light sensor that controls the Autolight system on the top of the instrument panel. Keep that area clear of papers and other material.

Shift Mode
Shift ranges can be selected manually when the shift selector is placed in the manual shift gate. In the manual shift mode, the shift range is displayed on the position indicator in the meter. While in the manual shift mode:
• Moving the shift selector to the + (up) side will shift the transmission to a higher range.
• Moving the shift selector to the -- (down) side will shift the transmission to a lower range.

Use 6th gear for all normal forward driving at highway speeds.

Use 5th gear when driving up long slopes, or for engine braking when driving down long slopes. 4th through 2nd gears can also be used for hill climbing or engine braking on downhill grades.

1st gear can be used for climbing steep hills slowly, driving slowly, or for maximum engine braking on steep downhill grades.

Remember not to drive at high speeds for extended periods of time in lower than 6th gear. This reduces fuel economy.

Return the shift selector to the D (Drive) position to return the transmission to the automatic driving mode.

Automatic Climate Controls
The AUTO mode may be used all year round. The system automatically regulates and maintains fan speed, airflow and temperature in the cabin. To turn the system ON, press the AUTO button. The indicator light turns ON when the system is activated.

The AUTO function can be turned OFF by either changing the fan speed or by pressing the DEFROSTER, MODE or OFF buttons. To reactivate automatic control, press the AUTO button.

To turn the entire climate control system OFF, press the OFF button.

Your vehicle has separate temperature control buttons for the driver and front seat passenger. The driver's temperature control will set the temperature for both driver and passenger if the DUAL control is not activated. Press the blue down arrow for cooler air or press the red up arrow for warmer air.

If you want to adjust the passenger side temperature independently from the driver's side, press the DUAL button or press either the blue down arrow for cooler air or press the red up arrow for warmer air.

The passenger's side temperature will be displayed on the monitor. To switch back to driver control, press the DUAL button again.

The DUAL control mode cannot be activated when the defrost is on.

The manual air flow control button provides a choice of airflow outlets. Press repeatedly to cycle through these choices:

• Air will flow from center and side vents.
• Air will flow from center and side vents and foot outlets.
• Air will flow mainly from foot outlets.
• Air will flow from the defroster vents and foot outlets.

Your choices are displayed on the monitor.

To recirculate air inside your vehicle, press this Air Recirculation button; its indicator will light up. This helps A/C efficiency and helps block outside odors from entering the cabin. Press the Air Recirculation button again to turn OFF and this will allow fresh air from the outside to be drawn into your vehicle.

Please be aware that the Air Recirculation feature will not activate while in Defrost mode because allowing outside air to enter the vehicle improves defogging performance.

Press the CLIMATE button on the control panel to turn the display to the Climate mode. Climate control settings can be changed on the screen.
