136 Driving and Operating
Manual Transmission
The shift lever should be in Neutral and the
parking brake engaged. Hold the clutch
pedal down to the floor, press the brake
pedal and start the engine.
Key Access
1. With your foot off the accelerator pedal,
turn the ignition key to START. When
the engine starts, let go of the key. The
idle speed will go down as the engine
warms. Do not race the engine
immediately after starting it. Allow the
oil to warm up and lubricate all moving
parts.
Caution
Cranking the engine for long periods of
time, by trying to start the engine
immediately after cranking has ended,
can overheat and damage the cranking
motor, and drain the battery. Wait at
least 15 seconds between each try, to let
the cranking motor cool down.
2. If the engine does not start after five to
10 seconds, especially in very cold
weather (below 18 °C or 0 °F), it could
be flooded with too much gasoline. Push
the accelerator pedal all the way to the
floor and hold it there as you hold the
key in START for a maximum of
15 seconds. Wait at least 15 seconds
between each try, to allow the cranking
motor to cool. When the engine starts,
let go of the key and accelerator. If the
vehicle starts briefly but then stops
again, repeat the procedure. This clears
the extra gasoline from the engine. Do
not race the engine immediately after
starting it. Operate the engine and
transmission gently until the oil warms
up and lubricates all moving parts.
Keyless Access
1. With the Keyless Access system, the RKE
transmitter must be in the vehicle. For
vehicles with an automatic transmission,
press the brake pedal, then press ENGINE
START/STOP on the instrument panel.
For vehicles with a manual transmission,
press the clutch pedal and the brake
pedal first, then press ENGINE
START/STOP.
The idle speed will go down as the
engine gets warm. Do not race the
engine immediately after starting it.
If the RKE transmitter is not in the
vehicle, if there is interference, or if the
RKE battery is low, a Driver Information
Center (DIC) message will display. See
Driver Information Center (DIC) 0 82 and
Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) System
Operation (Key Access) 0 9 or
Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) System
Operation (Keyless Access) 0 11.
Caution
Cranking the engine for long periods of
time, by trying to start the engine
immediately after cranking has ended,
can overheat and damage the cranking
motor, and drain the battery. Wait at
least 15 seconds between each try, to let
the cranking motor cool down.
2. If the engine does not start after five to
10 seconds, especially in very cold
weather (below 18 °C or 0 °F), it could
be flooded with too much gasoline. Try
pushing the accelerator pedal all the way
to the floor and holding it there as you
press ENGINE START/STOP, for up to a
maximum of 15 seconds. Wait at least
15 seconds between each try, to allow
the cranking motor to cool down. When
the engine starts, let go of the button
and the accelerator. If the vehicle starts
briefly but then stops again, do the
same thing. This clears the extra gasoline
