HOMELINKTWIRELESS CONTROL SYSTEM (IF EQUIPPED)
The HomeLinktWireless Control System, located on the driver's visor,
provides a convenient way to replace up to three hand-held transmitters
with a single built-in device. This feature will learn the radio frequency
codes of most current transmitters to operate garage doors, entry gate
operators, security systems, entry door locks, and home or office lighting.
When programming your HomeLinktWireless Control System to
a garage door or gate, be sure that people and objects are out of
the way to prevent potential harm or damage.
Do not use the HomeLinktWireless Control System with any garage
door opener that lacks safety stop and reverse features as required by
U.S. federal safety standards (this includes any garage door opener
model manufactured before April 1, 1982). A garage door which cannot
detect an object, signaling the door to stop and reverse, does not meet
current U.S. federal safety standards. For more information, contact
Retain the original transmitter for use in other vehicles as well as for
future programming procedures (i.e. new HomeLinktequipped vehicle
purchase). It is also suggested that upon the sale of the vehicle, the
programmed Homelinktbuttons be erased for security purposes, refer to
Programmingin this section.
Do not program HomeLinktwith the vehicle parked in the garage.
Note:Your vehicle may require the ignition switch to be turned to the
ACC position for programming and/or operation of the HomeLinkt.Itis

²Rear seats (if equipped)
The front outboard and rear safety restraints in the vehicle are
combination lap and shoulder belts. The front passenger and rear seat
safety belts have two types of locking modes described below:
Vehicle sensitive mode
The vehicle sensitive mode is the normal retractor mode, allowing free
shoulder belt length adjustment to your movements and locking in
response to vehicle movement. For example, if the driver brakes
suddenly or turns a corner sharply, or the vehicle receives an impact of
approximately 8 km/h (5 mph) or more, the combination safety belts will
lock to help reduce forward movement of the driver and passengers.
The front seat belt system can also be made to lock manually by quickly
pulling on the shoulder belt. Rear seat belts (if equipped) cannot be
made to lock up by pulling quickly on the belt.
Automatic locking mode
In this mode, the shoulder belt is automatically pre-locked. The belt will
still retract to remove any slack in the shoulder belt.
The automatic locking mode is not available on the driver safety belt.
When to use the automatic locking mode
²Anytimea child safety seat is installed in a passenger front or
outboard rear seating position with Regular Cab or SuperCab.
SuperCrew and SuperCab models include the center seating position
of the second row. Children 12 years old and under should be properly
