Vehicles Without Wheel Covers
1. Mount the road tire on the axle.
2. Install the remaining lug nuts with the cone shaped end of the nut toward thewheel. Lightly tighten the lug nuts.
To avoid the risk of forcing the vehicle off the jack, do not fully tighten the lug nuts
until the vehicle has been lowered. Failure to follow this warning may result in
3. Lower the vehicle to the ground by turning the jack handle counterclockwise.
4. Finish tightening the lug nuts. Push down on the wrench while at the end of the handle for increased leverage. Tighten the lug nuts in a star pattern until each nut
has been tightened twice. The correct tightness of each lug nut is 100 ft/lbs
(135 N·m). If in doubt about the correct tightness, have them checked with a
torque wrench by your authorized dealer or service station.
5. After 25 miles (40 km) check the lug nut torque with a torque wrench to ensure that all lug nuts are properly seated against the wheel.
If your vehicle has a discharged battery it can be jump-started using a set of jumper
cables and a battery in another vehicle or by using a portable battery booster pack.
Jump-starting can be dangerous if done improperly so please follow the procedures
in this section carefully.
When using a portable battery booster pack follow the manufacturer’s operating
instructions and precautions.
Do not use a portable battery booster pack or any other booster source with a
system voltage greater than 12 Volts or damage to the battery, starter motor,
alternator or electrical system may occur.
Do not attempt jump-starting if the battery is frozen. It could rupture or explode
and cause personal injury.
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• Take care to avoid the radiator cooling fan whenever the hood is raised. It canstart anytime the ignition switch is ON. You can be injured by moving fan
• Remove any metal jewelry such as rings, watch bands and bracelets that could
make an inadvertent electrical contact. You could be seriously 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.
1. Set the parking brake, shift the automatic transmission into PARK (manual transmission to NEUTRAL) and turn the ignition to LOCK.
2. Turn off the heater, radio, and all unnecessary electrical accessories.
3. 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.
Do not allow vehicles to touch each other as this could establish a ground
connection and personal injury could result.
Failure to follow this jump-starting procedure could result in personal injury or
property damage due to battery explosion.
Failure to follow these procedures could result in damage to the charging system
of the booster vehicle or the discharged vehicle.
Remove Air Intake before proceeding with this Jump-Starting procedure.
Connecting The Jumper Cables
1. Connect the positive (+)end of the jumper cable to the positive (+)post of the
2. Connect the opposite end of the positive (+)jumper cable to the positive (+)post
of the booster battery.
3. Connect the negative end (-)of the jumper cable to the negative (-)post of the

4. Connect the opposite end of the negative(-)jumper cable to a good engine ground
(exposed metal part of the discharged vehicle’s engine) away from the battery and
the fuel injection system.
Do not connect the jumper 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. Only use the specific ground point, do not use any other exposed
5. 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.
6. Once the engine is started, remove the jumper cables in the reverse sequence:
Disconnecting The Jumper Cables
1. Disconnect the negative (-)end of the jumper cable from the engine ground of the
vehicle with the discharged battery.
2. Disconnect the opposite end of the negative (-)jumper cable from the negative (-)
post of the booster battery.
3. Disconnect the positive (+)end of the jumper cable from the positive (+)post of
the booster battery.
4. Disconnect the opposite end of the positive (+)jumper cable from the positive (+)
post of the vehicle with the discharged battery.
5. Reinstall the air intake duct.
If frequent jump-starting is required to start your vehicle you should have the battery
and charging system inspected at your authorized dealer.
Accessories plugged into the vehicle power outlets draw power from the vehicle’s
battery, even when not in use (i.e., cellular devices, etc.). Eventually, if plugged in
long enough without engine operation, the vehicle’s battery will discharge suffi-
ciently to degrade battery life and/or prevent the engine from starting.
SHIFT LEVER OVERRIDE
If a malfunction occurs and the shift lever cannot be moved out of the PARK position,
you can use the following procedure to temporarily move the shift lever:
1. Turn the engine OFF.
2. Firmly apply the parking brake.
3. Using a small screwdriver or similar tool, remove the shift lever override access cover (located on the right side of the shift lever housing).
