To quickly locate information about the vehicle, use the Index in the back of the manual. It is an alphabetical list of what is in the manual and the page number where it can be found at Owners Manuals.
Starting the Engine
When first starting the vehicle, the engine idle speed will be elevated to allow the catalytic converter, an emissions control device, to quickly reach operating temperature. After approximately 20 seconds, the engine will begin to transition to its normal, quieter idle speed, which can vary depending on the temperature. This is normal operation.
Programming Transmitters to the Vehicle
Only RKE transmitters programmed to the vehicle will work. If a transmitter is lost or stolen, a replacement can be purchased and programmed through your dealer. The vehicle can be reprogrammed so that lost or stolen transmitters no longer work. Each vehicle can have up to eight transmitters matched to it.
Automatic Safety Belt Tightening System
The vehicle may have the Automatic Safety Belt Tightening System. Each time the vehicle is started with the front safety belts buckled, the system activates once to tighten the safety belts when the forward vehicle speed exceeds the threshold for activation. The system also activates during emergency braking and/or sudden driving maneuvers and releases when driving conditions return to normal.
