• The Audio Jack allows a portable device, such as an MP3 player or a cassette player, to be plugged into the radio and utilize the vehicle’s sound system, using a
3.5 mm audio cable, to amplify the source and play through the vehicle speakers.
• Touching the Player soft-key then choose AUX source will change the mode to auxiliary device if the Audio Jack is connected, allowing the music from your
portable device to be heard through the vehicle's speakers.
• The functions of the portable device are controlled using the device buttons. The volume may be controlled using the radio or portable device.
2. USB Port
• Connect your iPod®or compatible device using a USB cable into the USB Port.
USB Memory sticks with audio files can also be used. Then, audio from the device
can be played on the vehicles sound system while providing metadata (artist, track

• If your vehicle has a discharged batteryit can be jump-started using a set of
jumper cables and a battery in another
vehicle or by using a portable battery
• Jump-starting can be dangerous if done improperly so please follow the
procedures in this section carefully.
NOTE: When using a portable battery
booster pack follow the manufacturer's
operating instructions and precautions.
Preparations for Jump-Start
• The battery in your vehicle is located between the left front headlight assembly
and the left front wheel splash shield. To allow jump-starting there are remote
battery posts located on the left side of the engine compartment.
• Set the parking brake, shift the automatic transmission into PARK and turn the ignition to LOCK.
• Turn off the heater, radio, and all unnecessary electrical accessories.
• Remove the protective cover over the remote positive (+)battery post. To remove
the cover, press the locking tab and pull upward on the cover.
• If using another vehicle to jump-start the battery, park the vehicle within the jumper cables reach, set the parking brake and make sure the ignition is OFF.
• Connect the positive (+)end of the jumper cable to the remote positive (+)post of
the discharged vehicle.
• Connect the opposite end of the positive (+)jumper cable to the positive (+)post
of the booster battery.
• Connect the negative end (-)of the jumper cable to the negative (-)post of the
• Connect the opposite end of the negative (-)jumper cable to the remote negative
(-) post of the vehicle with the discharged battery.
• Start the engine in the vehicle that has the booster battery, let the engine idle a few minutes, and then start the engine in the vehicle with the discharged battery.
Once the engine is started, remove the jumper cables in the reverse sequence:
• Disconnect the negative (-)jumper cable from the remote negative (-)post of the
vehicle with the discharged battery.
• Disconnect the negative end (-)of the jumper cable from the negative (-)post of
the booster battery.

• Disconnect the opposite end of the positive(+)jumper cable from the positive (+)
post of the booster battery.
• Disconnect the positive (+)end of the jumper cable from the remote positive (+)
post of the discharged vehicle.
• Reinstall the protective cover over the remote positive (+)battery post of the
• If frequent jump-starting is required to start your vehicle you should have the battery and charging system inspected at your authorized dealer.
• Do not use a portable battery booster pack or any other booster source with asystem voltage greater than 12 Volts or damage to the battery, starter motor,
alternator or electrical system may occur.
• Failure to follow these procedures could result in damage to the charging system of the booster vehicle or the discharged vehicle.
• Accessories that can be plugged into the vehicle power outlets 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 the engine from starting.
• When temperatures are below the freezing point, electrolyte in a dischargedbattery may freeze. Do not attempt jump-starting because the battery could
rupture or explode and cause personal injury. Battery temperature must be
brought above the freezing point before attempting a jump-start.
• Take care to avoid the radiator cooling fan whenever the hood is raised. It can start anytime the ignition switch is on. You can be injured by moving fan
• Remove any metal jewelry, such as watch bands or bracelets, that might make an inadvertent electrical contact. You could be severely injured.
• Batteries contain sulfuric acid that can burn your skin or eyes and generate hydrogen gas which is flammable and explosive. Keep open flames or sparks
away from the battery.
• Do not allow vehicles to touch each other as this could establish a ground connection and personal injury could result.
• Failure to follow this procedure could result in personal injury or property damage due to battery explosion.
• Do not connect the cable to the negative post (-)of the discharged battery.
The resulting electrical spark could cause the battery to explode and could
result in personal injury.
