Acura CL (2003 year). Instruction — page 7

See page

for important safety

information and a warning about how to
properly position the head restraints.

15

The front head restraints help
protect you and your passenger from
whiplash and other injuries. They are
most effective when you adjust them
so the back of the occupant’s head
rests against the center of the
restraint. A taller person should
adjust the restraint as high as
possible.

The front head restraints adjust for
height. You need both hands to
adjust the restraint. Do not attempt
to adjust it while driving. To raise it,
pull upward. To lower the restraint,
push the release button sideways
and push the restraint down.

To remove a head restraint for
cleaning or repair, pull it up as far as
it will go. Push the release button
and pull the restraint out of the seat-
back.

The outside mirrors are heated to re-
move fog and frost. With the ignition
switch ON (II), turn on the heaters
by pressing the button. The light in
the button comes on as a reminder.
Press the button again to turn the
heaters off.

Push the appropriate edge of the
adjustment switch to move the
mirror right, left, up, or down.

When you finish, move the
selector switch to the center (off)
position. This turns off the
adjustment switch so you can’t
move a mirror out of position by
accidentally bumping the switch.

Outside mirror positions can be
stored in the driving position
memory system (see page

).

With the selector switch in the
center (off) position, the passenger’s
side mirror will pivot downward
slightly when you shift the
transmission into reverse. This gives
you a better view of that side of the
vehicle while parallel parking. The
mirror returns to its original position
when you take the transmission out
of reverse.

Turn the ignition switch ON (II).
You cannot add a new driving
position in the memory unless the
ignition switch is ON (II). You can
recall a memorized position with
the ignition switch in any position.

Store a driving position as explained
in this section only when the car is
parked.

Your Acura has a memory feature
for the driver’s seat and outside
mirror positions.

Two seat and outside mirror
positions, for different drivers or
driving conditions, can be stored in
separate memories. You select a
memorized position by pushing the
appropriate button or using the
appropriate remote transmitter
(Memory 1 or Memory 2).

Adjust the seat to a comfortable
position (see page

).

Press and release the MEMO
button on the control panel. You
will hear a beep. Immediately
press and hold one of the memory
buttons (1 or 2) until you hear two
beeps. The indicator light in the
memory button will come on. The
current positions of the driver’s
seat and outside mirrors are now
stored.

Adjust the outside mirrors for best
visibility (see page

).

Doing any of the following after
pressing the MEMO button will
cancel the storing procedure.

Not pressing a memory button
within 5 seconds.

Readjusting the seat position.

The system will move the seat and
outside mirrors to the memorized
positions. The indicator light in the
selected memory button will flash
during movement. When the
adjustments are complete, you will
hear two beeps and the indicator
light will remain on.

Readjusting the outside mirror
position.

Each memory button stores only one
driving position. Storing a new
position erases the previous setting
stored in that button’s memory. If
you want to add a new position while
retaining the current one, use the
other memory button.

All stored driving positions will be
lost if your car’s battery goes dead or
is disconnected.

Press the desired memory button
(1 or 2) until you hear a beep, then
release the button.

You can select memorized positions
as follows.

Make sure the parking brake is set
and the shift lever is in Park (A/T)
or a forward gear (M/T).

You cannot select a memorized
position if the transmission is in
Reverse. Shift to another gear,
then select.

If the parking brake is not set, you
must press and hold the memory
button until the adjustment is
complete.

the memorized position, the
indicator light in the memory button
will go out. To keep this driving
position for later use, you must store
it in the driving position memory.

Follow these precautions whenever
you use the seat heaters:

Use the HI setting only to heat the
seats quickly. Select the LO
setting when the seats feel warm.
The HI setting draws large
amounts of current from the
battery.

Do not use the seat heaters, even
on the LO setting, if the engine is
left idling for an extended period.
They can weaken the battery,
causing hard starting.

The HI or LO indicator lights and
remains lit until you turn it off by
pushing the opposite side of the
switch lightly. The indicator will turn
off.

In HI, the heater turns off when the
seat gets warm, and turns back on
after the seat’s temperature drops. It
continues to cycle as long as you
leave it set on HI. The HI indicator
remains lit as a reminder that you
have the heater on.

In LO, the heater runs continuously.
It does not cycle with temperature
changes.

Because of the sensors for the side
airbag system, there is no heater in
the passenger’s seat-back.

Both front seats are equipped with
seat heaters. The ignition switch
must be ON (II) to use them. Push
the front of the switch, HI, to rapidly
heat up the seat. After the seat
reaches a comfortable temperature,
select LO by pushing the back of the
switch. This will keep the seat warm.

the heater switch to turn the power
on or off. The pilot lamp lights and
remains on while the heaters are on.

Do not use the seat heaters when the
engine is off or when idling for a
long period of time. They can drain
the battery, making your car hard to
start.

Because of the sensors for the side
airbag system, there is no heater in
the passenger’s seat-back.

Each door has a switch that controls
its window. To open the window,

powered. Turn the ignition switch to
ON (II) to raise or lower either
window.

Closing a power window on
someone’s hands or fingers can
cause serious injury.

Make sure your passengers are
away from the windows before
closing them.

Main Menu

Table of Contents

————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The power window system has a key-
off delay function. The windows will
still operate for up to ten minutes
after you turn off the ignition.
Opening either door cancels the
delay function. You must turn the
ignition switch ON (II) again before
you can raise or lower the windows.

Auto reverse stops sensing when the
window is almost closed. You should
always check that all passengers and
objects are away from the window
before closing it.

If the driver’s window runs into any
obstacle while it is closing
automatically, it will stop, and then
reverse direction. To close the
window, remove the obstacle, then
use the window switch again.

The MAIN switch controls power to
the passenger’s window. With this
switch off, the passenger’s window
cannot be raised or lowered. The
MAIN switch does not affect the driv-
er’s window. Keep the MAIN switch
off when you have children in the car
so they do not injure themselves by
operating the window unintentionally.
The lights inside the switches come
on when you turn the parking lights
or headlights on.

If your car’s battery is disconnected
or goes dead, or the driver’s window
fuse is removed, the AUTO function
will be disabled. The power window
system needs to be reset after
reconnecting the battery or installing
the fuse. You should do the following.

Start the engine. Push down on
the driver’s window switch until
the window is fully open.

If the power windows do not operate
properly after resetting, have your
car checked by an Acura dealer.

Pull back on the driver’s window
switch to close the window
completely, then hold the switch
for a second or two more.
