emergency situation even while driving. If you must stop the engine, do either of the
following operations:
• Press and hold the ENGINE START/STOP button for two seconds.
• Firmly press the ENGINE START/STOP button three times.

The steering wheel will not lock. However, because turning off the engine disables
the power assist the engine provides to the steering and braking systems, it will
require significantly more physical effort and time to steer and slow the vehicle. Use
both feet on the brake pedal to slow down the vehicle and stop immediately in a
safe place.

The gear position automatically changes to

Jump Starting

Turn off the power to electric devices, such as audio and lights. Turn off the engine,
then open the hood.

1. Connect the first jumper cable to your

vehicle’s battery + terminal.

2. Connect the other end of the first jumper

cable to the booster battery + terminal.

u

Use a 12-volt booster battery only.

u

When using an automotive battery
charger to boost your 12-volt battery,
select a lower charging voltage than 15-
volt. Check the charger manual for the
proper setting.

3. Connect the second jumper cable to the

booster battery — terminal.

4. Connect the other end of the second

jumper cable to the engine mounting bolt
as shown. Do not connect this jumper cable
to any other part.

5. If your vehicle is connected to another

vehicle, start the assisting vehicle’s engine
and increase its rpm slightly.

6. Attempt to start your vehicle’s engine. If it

turns over slowly, check that the jumper
cables have good metal-to-metal contact.

Jump Starting Procedure

1

Jump Starting

Securely attach the jumper cables clips so that they
do not come off when the engine vibrates. Also be
careful not to tangle the jumper cables or allow the
cable ends to touch each other while attaching or
detaching the jumper cables.

Battery performance degrades in cold conditions and
may prevent the engine from starting.

WARNING

A battery can explode if you do not follow
the correct procedure, seriously injuring
anyone nearby.

Keep all sparks, open flames, and smoking
materials away from the battery.

What to do when the indicator comes on while driving

Depress the brake pedal lightly to check pedal pressure.
• If normal, check the brake fluid level the next time you stop.
• If abnormal, take immediate action. If necessary, downshift the

transmission to slow the vehicle using engine braking.

It is dangerous to drive with low brake fluid. If there
is no resistance from the brake pedal, stop
immediately in a safe place. If necessary downshift
the gears.

If the brake system indicator and ABS indicator come
on simultaneously, the electronic brake distribution
system is not working. This can result in vehicle
instability under sudden braking.
Have your vehicle inspected by a dealer immediately.

If the Brake System Indicator (Red) blinks at the same
time when the Brake System Indicator (Amber) comes
on, the parking brake may not work.
Avoid using the parking brake and have your vehicle
checked by a dealer immediately.

2 If the Brake System Indicator (Red) Comes

On or Blinks at the Same Time When the
Brake System Indicator (Amber) Comes On

P. 612

If you repeatedly operate the electric parking brake in
a short period of time, the brake stops operating to
prevent heating of the system and the indicator
blinks.
