Chapter 2 - Instruments and controls
Shiftlock (automatic transmission only)
When your car is parked, the gear selector is locked in the (P)ark position. To release the selector from this position, turn the ignition key to position II (or start the engine), depress the brake pedal, press the button on the front side of th
e gear selector and move the selector from (P)ark.
If it is necessary to manually override the shiftlock system:
Keylock (automatic transmission only)
This means that when you switch off the ignition, the gear selector must be in the (P)ark position before the starting (ignition) key can be removed from the ignition switch.
Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)
The ABS system in your car performs a self-diagnostic test when the vehicle first reaches the speed of approximately 12 mph (20 km/h). The brake pedal will pulsate several times and a sound may be audible from the ABS control module. This is normal.
Fuel tank cover
The fuel tank cover is locked and must be popped open using the control on the driver's door (see illustration on page 16).
The pages in this section provide detailed descriptions of the vehicle's instruments and controls. Note that vehicles may be equipped differently, depending on special legal requirements.

1 Fuel gauge
The fuel tank holds approximately 18.4 US gals. (70 liters). When the warning light comes on there is approximately 1.8 US gals. (8 liters) of fuel remaining. See "Refueling" for further information.
2 Temperature gauge
Do not drive the car with the pointer in the red range. The pointer should be approximately midway on the gauge face when driving. If the pointer approaches the red range repeatedly, check coolant level. See page 130.
4 Clock, ambient temperature sensor, trip computer (certain models)
5 Trip odometer
Used for measuring shorter distances. The last digit indicates 1/10 mile/kilometer.
7 Trip odometer reset button
Reads thousands of engine rpm. The engine should not be operated in red range. The highest permitted constant engine speed is 6,200 rpm.
