Rotate the headlamp control clockwise to the second position to
turn on the headlamps. Pull the headlamp control towards you to
turn on the foglamps. Rotate the control counterclockwise to
initiate the auto lamps. (This light-sensitive system turns your
exterior lamps on and off automatically. It also keeps the lights on
for approximately 20 seconds after the ignition switch is turned to
the OFF position.) To turn the system off, rotate the control
clockwise to the OFF position.
3 ABS Light
Your anti-lock braking system (ABS) detects the onset of wheel lockup
during brake applications and helps prevent wheels from locking
during extreme braking situations. The ABS warning light will
illuminate when you start your engine; however, if it stays on,
continues to flash or fails to illuminate, see your dealership's service
You must be traveling at or above 30 miles per hour to use the
speed control system. Press ON to enable speed control. Press
SET + to set a speed. To set a higher speed, accelerate to the
desired speed, press and release SET +. To establish a lower
speed, depress the brake pedal; when the desired vehicle speed
is reached, press SET + /SET -. To return to a previously set speed,
press RES. To disengage speed control and erase the previously
programmed set speed, press OFF.
12Parking Brake Release
Pull the release lever to release the parking brake. Driving with the
parking brake on will cause the brakes to wear out quickly and
reduce fuel economy. The parking brake is not recommended to
stop a moving vehicle. However, if the normal brakes fail, the
parking brake can be used to stop your vehicle in an emergency.
Since the parking brake applies only the rear brakes, the vehicle’s
stopping distance will increase greatly and the handling of your
vehicle will be adversely affected.
11Advance Trac™ (if equipped)
By monitoring vehicle speed, yaw, lateral acceleration, and
intended direction, the AdvanceTrac™ system provides enhanced
traction and stability on slippery surfaces, or in emergency
maneuvers. The system defaults to on. If your vehicle should
become stuck, try switching the system off by pressing the
AdvanceTrac™ button on the center console. When the system is
functioning, a yellow icon will flash.
To clear thin ice and fog from the windshield, choose defroster

This light will illuminate briefly when you start your vehicle to ensure
that the engine warning system is functional. If it comes on after the
engine is started, one of your engine’s emission control systems
may be malfunctioning. Or, it may stay on because your vehicle is out
of fuel, existing fuel quality is poor, or the fuel cap hasn’t been
properly tightened. If you have added high quality fuel or tightened
the fuel cap and the light continues to stay on, remember that it can
take three driving cycles for the light to turn off. (A driving cycle
consists of a cold engine startup followed by mixed city/highway
driving.) No additional vehicle service would be required.
