Windshield Wipers

The right lever controls the wind-

shield wipers and washers. The
rotary switch at the end of the lever

has three positions:

INT: intermittent

In intermittent, the wipers operate
every few seconds. In low speed and
high speed, the wipers run continu-
ously.

To operate the wipers in mist mode,

push the control lever down. The
wipers run at high speed until you
release the lever. This gives you a

quick way to clear the windshield.

Windshield Washers

To clean the windshield, pull back on

the wiper control lever. The washers

spray until you release the lever.

The wipers run at low speed while
you’re pulling the lever, then

Cruise Control

LS, GS and GS-R models
Cruise control allows you to maintain

a set speed above 25 mph (40 km/h)

without keeping your foot on the

accelerator pedal. It should be used
for cruising on straight, open
highways. It is not recommended for
conditions such as city driving,
winding roads, slippery roads, heavy
rain, or bad weather. You should
have full control of the car under
those conditions.

The cruise control, as it operates,

moves the accelerator pedal. You can
damage your car’s accelerator
mechanism by resting your foot under
the pedal and blocking the movement.

Instruments and Controls

NOTICE

Improper use of the cruise

control can lead to a crash.

Use the cruise control only

when traveling on open

highways in good weather.

Keys and Locks

These keys contain electronic

circuits that are activated by the
Immobilizer System. They will not
work to start the engine if the
circuits are damaged.

Protect the keys from direct
sunlight, high temperature, and
high humidity.

Do not drop the keys or set heavy
objects on them.

Keep the keys away from liquids.
If they get wet, dry them immedi-
ately with a soft cloth.

The keys do not contain batteries.

Do not try to take them apart.

Immobilizer System

The Immobilizer System protects
your car from theft. A properly-

coded master or valet key must be
used in the ignition switch for the
engine to start. If an improperly-
coded key (or other device) is used,
the engine’s fuel system is disabled.

When you turn the ignition switch to

ON (II), the Immobilizer System
indicator should come on for a few
seconds, then go out. If the indicator
starts to blink, it means the system
does not recognize the coding of the

key. Turn the ignition switch to

LOCK (0), remove the key, reinsert
it, and turn the switch to ON (II)
again.

The system may not recognize your

key’s coding if another immobilizer
key or other metal object is near the
ignition switch when you insert the
key. To make sure the system
recognizes the key code:

Do not keep other immobilizer
keys on the same key ring.

Use a plastic or leather key fob,
not metal.

Keep other keys away from your
car’s key and the ignition switch

while trying to start the engine.

If the system repeatedly does not
recognize the coding of your key,
contact your Acura dealer.

This indicator will also blink several

times when you turn the ignition

switch from ON (II) to ACCESSORY

(I) or LOCK (0).
