*[IN02800(ALL)01/95] Buying a Ford Extended Service Plan
*[IN02900(ALL)01/94] If you bought your vehicle in the U.S., you can buy a Ford
Extended Service Plan for your vehicle. This optional contract
provides service protection for a longer period of time than the
basic warranty that comes with your vehicle.
*[IN03000(ALL)01/95] You do not have to buy this option when you buy your vehicle.
However, your option to purchase the Ford Extended Service
Plan runs out after 18 months or 18,000 miles. See your dealer
for more details about the Ford Extended Service Plan.
*[IN03100(ALL)01/95] If you purchased a Canadian vehicle and did not take
advantage of the Ford Extended Service Plan at the time of
purchase, you may still be eligible. See your dealer for the
details.
%
*[IN04100(ALL)01/95] Breaking Your Vehicle In
*[IN04200(ALL)03/95] Your new vehicle goes through an adjustment or break-in
period during the first 1,000 miles (1,600 km) that you drive it.
During the break-in period, you need to pay careful attention to
how you drive your vehicle.
%
*[IN04300(ALL)01/95] ■ Avoid sudden stops. Because your vehicle has new brake
linings, you should take these steps:
*[IN04400(ALL)01/95] — Watch traffic carefully so that you can anticipate when to
stop.
*[IN04500(ALL)01/95] — Begin braking well in advance.
*[IN04600(ALL)01/95] — Apply the brakes gradually.
*[IN04700(ALL)01/95] The break-in period for new brake linings lasts for 100 miles
(160 km) of city driving or 1,000 miles (1,600 km) of
highway driving.

retighten to proper torque specification at 500 miles/800 km
after any wheel change or any other time the wheel lug nuts
have been loosened.
%
*[IN04900(ALL)01/95] ■ Use only the type of engine oil that Ford recommends. See
Engine oil recommendations in the Index. Do not use special
“break-in” oils.
*[IN05000(ALL)04/95] Your vehicle is equipped with an Electronic Powertrain Control
Module that limits engine and/or vehicle speeds with a cut-out
mode to promote durability.

%
*[IN05101(ALL)04/95] Washing and Polishing Your Vehicle
*[IN05201(ALL)04/95] Wash the outside of your vehicle, including the underside, with
a mild detergent.
*[IN05301(ALL)04/95] DO NOT:
*[IN05401(ALL)04/95] ■ Wash your vehicle with hot water
*[IN05501(ALL)04/95] ■ Wash your vehicle while it sits in direct sunlight
*[IN05600(ALL)04/95] ■ Wash your vehicle while the body is hot
*[IN05700(ALL)05/95] Pollen, bird droppings and tree sap can damage the paint,
especially in hot weather. Wash your vehicle as often as
necessary to keep it clean.

*[IN05900(ALL)05/95] Paint damage resulting from fallout is not related to a defect in
paint materials or workmanship and therefore is not covered by
warranty. Ford, however, believes that continual improvement
in customer satisfaction is a high priority. For this reason, Ford
has authorized its dealers to repair, at no charge to the owner,
the surfaces of new vehicles damaged by environmental fallout
within 12 months or 12,000 miles (20,000 km) of purchase,
whichever comes first. Customers may be required to bring their
vehicle in for inspection by a Ford representative.
*[IN06000(ALL)04/95] Polish your vehicle to remove harmful deposits and protect the
finish.
%
*[IN06100(ALL)04/95] Cleaning Chrome and Aluminum Parts
*[IN06200(ALL)04/95] Wash chrome and aluminum parts with a mild detergent. Do
not use steel wool, abrasive cleaners, fuel, or strong detergents.
%
*[IN06300(ALL)04/95] Cleaning Plastic Parts
*[IN06400(ALL)04/95] Some of your vehicle’s exterior trim parts are plastic. Clean with
a tar and road oil remover if necessary. Use a vinyl cleaner for
routine cleaning.
*[IN06500(ALL)04/95] Do not clean plastic parts with thinners, solvents or
petroleum-based cleaners.
%
*[IN06600(ALL)04/95] If you have your vehicle rustproofed, remove oversprayed
rustproofing with a tar and road oil remover. If rustproofing is
not removed from plastic and rubber parts, it can cause
deterioration.

Safety Restraints
*[SR00400(ALL)06/95] Safety Belts
*[SR00500(ALL)03/95] The use of safety belts helps to restrain you and your
passengers in case of a collision. In most states and in Canada,
the law requires their use. We strongly recommend that you use
them every time you travel in your vehicle.
*[SR00600(ALL)01/95] Safety belts provide best restraint when:
*[SR00700(ALL)01/95] ■ the seatback is upright
*[SR00800(ALL)01/95] ■ the occupant is sitting upright (not slouched)
*[SR00900(ALL)01/95] ■ the lap belt is snug and low on the hips
*[SR01000(ALL)01/95] ■ the shoulder belt is snug against the chest
*[SR01100(ALL)01/95] ■ the knees are straight forward
*[SR01500(ALL)01/95] See the following sections in this chapter for directions on how
to properly use these safety belts. Also see Safety Restraints for
Children in this chapter for special instructions about using
safety belts for children.
*[SR01600(ALL)03/95]
RWARNING
Make sure that you and your passengers, including
pregnant women, wear safety belts. Be sure that the lap
belt portion of your safety belt fits snugly and as low as
possible around the hips. If safety belts are not used
properly, the risk of you or your passengers being
injured in a collision greatly increases.

*[SR01700(ALL)05/95]
RWARNING
Passengers should not be allowed to ride in the cargo
area. Persons not riding in a seat with a fastened seat
belt are much more likely to suffer serious injury in a
collision. Cargo should always be secured to prevent it
from shifting and causing damage to the vehicle or harm
to passengers.
*[SR01800(ALL)05/95]
RWARNING
Failure to follow these precautions could increase the risk
and/or severity of injury in a collision. 1) Use the
shoulder belt on the outside shoulder only. Never wear
the shoulder belt under the arm. 2) Never swing it
around your neck over the inside shoulder. 3) Never use
a single belt for more than one person.
*[SR01900(ALL)05/95]
RWARNING
To reduce the risk of serious injury in a collision, always
drive and ride with your seatback upright and the lap
belt snug and low across the hips.
*[SR02000(ALL)05/95]
RWARNING
To reduce the risk of serious injury in a collision,
children should always ride with the seatback upright.

*[SR02100(ALL)05/95]
RWARNING
Never let a passenger hold a child on his or her lap
while the vehicle is moving. The passenger cannot
protect the child from injury in a collision.
*[SR02200(ALL)03/95]
RWARNING
Never use a single belt for more than one person or
across more than one seating position. This greatly
increases the risk that one or both of the people will be
injured in a collision. Each seating position in your
vehicle has a specific safety belt assembly which is made
up of one buckle and one tongue that are designed to be
used as a pair.
*[SR02300(ALL)05/95] Lock the doors of your vehicle before driving to lessen the risk
of the door coming open in a collision.
*[SR02700(ALL)05/95] Combination Lap and Shoulder Belts
*[SR02800(ALL)06/95] While your vehicle is in motion, the combination lap and
shoulder belt adjusts to your movement. However, if you brake
hard, turn hard, or if your vehicle receives an impact of 5 mph
(8 km/h) or more, the lap/shoulder belt locks and helps reduce
your forward movement.
*[SR02900(ALL)05/95] After you get into your vehicle, close the door and lock it. Then
adjust the seat to the position that suits you best.

[SR03830(ALL)05/95] Shoulder Belt Adjustment (Driver and Right Front

[SR03860(ALL)11/93] Combination Lap and Shoulder Belt — Second Row
Bench Seat
[SR03901(ALL)11/93] There is a unique safety restraint system for the outside seating
position of the second row bench seat. It is very important that
you read and understand this section before anyone rides in the
outside seating position (near the sliding door) of the
two-passenger bench seat.
[SR03910(ALL)05/95] In addition to safety belt anchorages in the floor and roof
structures, the second row bench seat has a detachable safety
belt anchor mounted to the right window side of the seat. The
safety belt should always remain attached to this anchor except
when removing this seat.
[SR03915(ALL)12/93] The second row passenger side outboard seating position uses a
hook above the sliding door to stow the shoulder safety belt when
entering or exiting the vehicle or when it is not being used.

[SR03940(ALL)08/94] 1. Disengage the safety belt from the seat by inserting a key or
small screwdriver into the slot provided on the detachable
anchor (see Figure 1). When this shoulder belt assembly is free
of the seat, allow the retractor to wind up the slack in the belt.
[SR03950(ALL)11/93] 2. Using the clip attached to the end of the shoulder belt, clip
the end of the belt to the stationary portion of the shoulder
belt (see Figure 2). The end of the shoulder belt must be
clipped in order to keep it from striking anything during
vehicle operation.

[SR03980(ALL)12/93] After re-installing the second row bench seat, make sure that the
safety belt is not twisted before you insert it into the detachable
anchor. A twisted safety belt may cause the retractor to work
improperly. Then insert the detachable anchor tongue into the
detachable anchor until you hear a “snap” and feel the latch

*[SR03990(ALL)06/95]
RWARNING
When reinstalling a rear seat in your vehicle it must be
placed in its original position. Improper installation of
the seat will prevent correct use of the safety belts and
could increase the risk of injury. Refer to the warning
label on the seat belt.
[SR04001(ALL)05/95] Your vehicle is equipped with a dual locking mode retractor on
the shoulder belt portion of the combination lap/shoulder safety
belt for front passenger and rear seat window passengers.
[SR04100(ALL)05/95] Dual locking mode retractors operate in two ways:
[SR04200(ALL)05/95] Vehicle Sensitive (Emergency) Locking Mode
[SR04300(ALL)05/95] In this operating mode, the shoulder belt retractor will allow the
occupant freedom of movement, locking tight only on hard
braking, hard cornering or impacts of approximately five mph
(8 km/h) or more.
[SR04400(ALL)05/95] Automatic Locking Mode
[SR04500(ALL)05/95] In this operating mode, the shoulder belt retractor will be
automatically locked and remain locked when the combination
lap/shoulder safety belt is buckled, and does not allow the
occupant freedom of movement. This mode provides the
following:
[SR04600(ALL)05/95] ■ A tight lap/shoulder belt fit on occupant
[SR04700(ALL)05/95] ■ Child seat or infant carrier restraint
[SR04800(ALL)05/95] Rear-facing infant seats should never be placed in the front seat.
[SR04900(ALL)05/95] This mode must be used when installing a child seat on the
front passenger seat and rear window seats where dual locking
retractors are provided.
[SR05000(ALL)05/95] To switch the retractor from the emergency locking mode to the
automatic locking mode, perform the following steps:
[SR05100(ALL)05/95] 1. Buckle the lap/shoulder combination belt.

[SR05200(ALL)05/95] 2. Grasp the shoulder portion of the belt and pull downward
until all of the belt is extracted, and when allowed to retract,
a clicking sound will be heard. At this time, the belt retractor
is in the automatic locking mode (child restraint mode).
[SR05300(ALL)05/95] 3. A clicking sound will be heard as the belt is allowed to
retract. This indicates that the retractor is in the automatic
locking mode.
[SR05401(ALL)05/95] NOTE: When the combination lap/shoulder belt is unbuckled
and allowed to retract completely, the retractor will
switch back to the vehicle sensitive (emergency)
locking mode. See detailed instructions under Safety
Seats for Children later in this chapter.
*[SR05501(ALL)05/95] Lap Belts
[SR05601(ALL)05/95] The lap belt in the center of the rear seat does not adjust
automatically. You must adjust it to fit snugly and as low as
possible around your hips. Do not wear it around your waist.
[SR05701(ALL)05/95] If you need to lengthen the belt, unfasten it and tip the belt
tongue at a right angle to the belt. Pull the belt tongue over
your lap until it reaches the buckle.
*[SR05801(ALL)06/95] If you need to shorten the belt, pull on the loose end of the
webbing until the belt fits snugly.
[SR05900(ALL)05/95] To unfasten the belt, push the release button on the buckle.

*[SR06100(ALL)05/95] Safety Belt Maintenance
*[SR06200(ALL)05/95] Check the safety belt systems periodically to make sure that
they work properly and are not damaged.
*[SR06300(ALL)05/95] All safety belt assemblies, including retractors, buckles, front
seat belt buckle support assemblies (slide bar) (if so equipped),
child safety seat tether bracket assemblies (if so equipped), and
attaching hardware, should be inspected after any collision. Ford
recommends that all safety belt assemblies used in vehicles
involved in a collision be replaced. However, if the collision was
minor and a qualified technician finds that the belts do not
show damage and continue to operate properly, they do not
need to be replaced. Safety belt assemblies not in use during a
collision should also be inspected and replaced if either damage
or improper operation is noted.
%
*[SR06400(ALL)05/95] Cleaning the Safety Belts
*[SR06500(ALL)05/95] Clean the safety belts with any mild soap solution that is
recommended for cleaning upholstery or carpets. Do not bleach
or dye the belt webbing because this may weaken it.
%
*[SR06600(ALL)05/95] Safety Belt Extension Assembly
*[SR06700(ALL)05/95] For some people, the safety belt may be too short even when it
is fully extended. You can add about eight inches (20 cm) to the
belt length with a safety belt extension assembly (part number
611C22). Safety belt extensions are available at no cost from
your dealer.
*[SR06800(ALL)05/95]
RWARNING
Failure to follow these instructions will affect the
performance of the safety belts and increase the risk of
personal injury.

*[SR08200(ALL)04/95] Air Bag Supplemental Restraint System
(SRS)
*[SR08450(ALL)05/95] The driver and right front passenger air bags are Supplemental
Restraint Systems (SRS), provided at these seating positions in
addition to the lap/shoulder belt, and are designed to
supplement the protection provided to properly belted
occupants in moderate to severe frontal collisions. The
supplemental air bag system does not provide restraint to the
lower body.
*[SR08600(ALL)05/95] The Importance of Wearing Safety Belts
*[SR08700(ALL)05/95]
RWARNING
Safety belts must be worn by all vehicle occupants to be
properly restrained and help reduce the risk of injury in
a collision.
[SR08750(ALL)11/93]
RWARNING
All occupants of the vehicle, including the driver, should
always wear their safety belts, whether or not an airbag
Supplemental Restraint System is also provided at their
seating position. Failure to do so may increase the risk of
severe injury or death in the event of a collision.
*[SR08800(ALL)01/95] There are four very important reasons to use safety belts even
with an air bag system. Use your safety belts to:
*[SR08900(ALL)01/95] ■ help keep you in the proper position (away from the air bag)
when it inflates
*[SR09000(ALL)01/95] ■ reduce the risk of harm in rollover, side or rear impact
collisions, because an air bag is not designed to inflate in
such situations

*[SR09100(ALL)01/95] ■ reduce the risk of harm in frontal collisions that are not
severe enough to activate the supplemental air bag
*[SR09200(ALL)01/95] ■ reduce the risk of being thrown from your vehicle
%
*[SR09300(ALL)01/95] The Importance of Being Properly Seated
*[SR09400(ALL)05/95] In a collision, the air bag must inflate extremely fast to help
provide additional protection for you. In order to do this, the
air bag must inflate with considerable force. If you are not
seated in a normal riding position with your back against the
seatback, the air bag may not protect you properly and could
possibly hurt you as it inflates.
*[SR09800(ALL)05/95]
RWARNING
If a passenger is not properly seated and restrained, an
inflating air bag could cause serious injury.
*[SR09890(ALL)05/95] Your vehicle is equipped with a right front passenger air bag.
Air bags deploy with great force, faster than the blink of an eye.
Front passengers, especially children and small adults, must
never sit on the front edge of the seat, stand near the glove
compartment of the instrument panel, or lean over near the air
bag cover when the vehicle is moving. All occupants should sit
with their backs against the seatback, move the seat to the most
rearward position if possible and use the safety belts. Children
weighing less than 40 lbs. (18 kg) always should use child or
infant seats.
*[SR09900(ALL)05/95]
RWARNING
When using forward-facing child seats move the
passenger seat as far back from the instrument panel as
possible. NEVER SECURE REAR-FACING INFANT
SEATS IN THE FRONT SEAT.

*[SR09920(ALL)05/95] THE FORCE OF THE RAPIDLY INFLATING PASSENGER AIR
BAG COULD PUSH THE TOP OF THE REAR-FACING SEAT
AGAINST THE VEHICLE SEATBACK, ARMRESTS OR
CONSOLE. REAR-FACING INFANT SEATS MUST ALWAYS
BE SECURED IN THE REAR SEAT.
*[SR10100(ALL)05/95]
RWARNING
Do not place objects or mount equipment on or near the
air bag cover on the steering wheel or in front seat areas
that may come in contact with a deploying air bag.
Failure to follow this instruction may increase the risk of
personal injury in the event of a collision.
*[SR10200(ALL)06/95] For further information about the proper mounting of
equipment in the front seat of this vehicle, please refer to Ford’s
brochure entitled Some Important Information About Air Bag
Supplemental Restraint System which can be obtained by calling
Helm Inc. at 1-800-782-4356. Ask for brochure FPS-8602.
*[SR10300(ALL)06/95] For additional important safety information on the proper use of
seat belts, child seats, and infant seats, please read the other
sections of this part of the Owner Guide, especially sections
entitled Safety Belts for Children and Safety Seats for Children.
*[SR10400(ALL)01/95] How the Air Bag Supplemental Restraint System
Operates
*[SR10500(ALL)06/95] The Air Bag Supplemental Restraint System consists of the
driver and passenger air bags, impact sensors, a system
diagnostic module, a readiness light and tone, and the electrical
wiring which connects the components.
*[SR10600(ALL)05/95] The driver air bag is in the center of the steering wheel and is
indicated by the letters “SRS.” The right front passenger seat air
bag is in the upper right-hand section of the instrument panel
ledge above the glove compartment. The letters “SRS” appear
there. Both air bags are designed to stay out of sight until they
are activated.

*[SR11500(ALL)05/95]
RWARNING
Do not attempt to service, repair, or modify the Air Bag
Supplemental Restraint System or its fuses. See your
Ford or Lincoln-Mercury dealer.
*[SR11600(ALL)05/95] If a collision occurs, the sensors sense the severity of the impact
and activates the air bags if necessary. The air bag system is
designed to deploy in frontal and front-angled collisions more
severe than hitting a parked vehicle (of similar size and weight)
head-on at about 28 mph (45 km/h). Because the system senses
the crash severity rather than vehicle speed, some frontal
collisions at speeds above 28 mph (45 km/h) will not inflate the
air bag.
*[SR11650(ALL)05/95] When the sensors activate the system, the air bags inflate
rapidly, filling with non-toxic nitrogen gas in a fraction of a
second. Immediately after inflation, the air bags deflate by
releasing the nitrogen gas through vent holes. The whole
process takes place in a matter of seconds.
*[SR12500(ALL)05/95]
RWARNING
Air bag system components get hot after inflation. Do
not touch them after inflation.

RWARNING
If the air bag is inflated, THE AIR BAG WILL NOT
FUNCTION AGAIN AND MUST BE REPLACED
IMMEDIATELY. If the air bag is not replaced, the
unrepaired area will increase the risk of injury in a
collision.
*[SR12910(ALL)05/95] To ensure that the air bag system will operate as intended in a
crash, the system is equipped with a diagnostic module, which
controls a readiness lamp and a warning tone. The diagnostic
module monitors its own circuits, the air bag electrical system,
the air bag readiness light, the air bag power, and the air bag
inflators.

25
*[SR12920(ALL)05/95] The air bag system uses a readiness light and a tone to indicate
the condition of the system. The readiness light is in the
instrument cluster. When you turn the ignition to the ON
position, this light will illuminate for approximately six (6)
seconds and then turn off. This indicates that the system is
operating normally. NOTE: Maintenance of the air bag system is
not required.
%
*[SR12930(ALL)05/95] A problem with the system is indicated by one or more of the
following:
*[SR12940(ALL)05/95] ■ the readiness light will either flash or stay lit,
*[SR12950(ALL)05/95] ■ or it will not light immediately after ignition is turned on,
% [SR12960(ALL)05/95] ■ a group of five beeps will be heard. The tone pattern will
repeat periodically until the problem and light are repaired.
[SR12970(ALL)05/95] If any of these things happen, even intermittently, have the air
bag system serviced at your Ford or Lincoln-Mercury dealer
immediately.
%
*[SR13000(ALL)03/95] Disposal of supplemental air bag equipped vehicles
[SR13150(ALL)02/95] For disposal of air bags or air bag equipped vehicles, see your
local Ford or Lincoln-Mercury dealer. Air bags MUST be
disposed of by qualified personnel.
*[SR13700(ALL)05/95] Safety Restraints for Children
*[SR13800(ALL)02/95] In the U.S. and Canada, you are required by law to use safety
restraints for children. If small children ride in your vehicle —
this generally includes children who are four years old or
younger and who weigh 40 pounds (18 kg) or less — you must
put them in safety seats that are made specially for children.
Safety belts alone do not provide maximum protection for these
children. Check your local and state laws for specific
requirements.

*[SR13900(ALL)05/95]
RWARNING
Never let a passenger hold a child on his or her lap
while the vehicle is moving. The passenger cannot
protect the child from injury in a collision.
*[SR14000(ALL)05/95]
RWARNING
Passengers should not be allowed to ride in the cargo
area. Persons not riding in a seat with a fastened seat
belt are much more likely to suffer serious injury in a
collision. Cargo should always be secured to prevent it
from shifting and causing damage to the vehicle or harm
to passengers.
*[SR14100(ALL)05/95]
RWARNING
Carefully follow all of the manufacturer’s instructions
included with the safety seat you put in your vehicle. If
you do not install and use the safety seat properly, the
child may be injured in a sudden stop or collision.
*[SR14200(ALL)05/95]
RWARNING
Never leave a child unattended in your vehicle.
*[SR14300(ALL)05/95]

*[SR14400(ALL)05/95] When possible, put children in the rear seat of your vehicle. Accident
statistics suggest that children are safer when properly restrained in the
rear seating positions than in the front seating positions.
*[SR14500(ALL)05/95] Built-In Child Seat (If equipped)
[SR14600(ALL)04/95] The second row bench seat may include two optional built-in
child safety seats (one on the driver side and one on the
passenger side). This child restraint is to be used only by
children who are at least one year old, weigh between 9 and
27 kilograms (20 and 60 pounds) and whose shoulders (top) are
below the bottom of the headrest in the full up position.
*[SR14625(ALL)05/95] If your child is less than one year old or weighs less than
9 kilograms (20 pounds), always use a rear facing infant or
convertible seat because a child of that size is not sufficiently
developed to withstand crash forces in a front facing position.
Follow the specific manufacturer’s instructions for weight and
height restrictions.
*[SR14700(ALL)05/95]
RWARNING
Always latch the vehicle seat to the floor, whether the
seat is occupied or empty. If not latched, the seat may
cause injury during a sudden stop.
*[SR15200(ALL)05/95] Children must be properly buckled before riding in the vehicle.
It is the law in every state and province. This child seat
conforms to all Federal/Canadian motor vehicle safety
standards.
*[SR15301(ALL)05/95] Built-in child seat belt retractors
*[SR15320(ALL)06/95] The belts on the built-in child seat are equipped with a retractor
that locks when both belt tongues are latched into the crotch
safety belt and buckle.
*[SR15340(ALL)04/95] The retractor will switch from the emergency locking mode to
the automatic locking mode when the shoulder belts are pulled
all the way out. The retractor will switch back to emergency
locking mode when the belts are unbuckled and the shoulder
belts retract completely.

*[SR15360(ALL)04/95] The automatic locking mode must be used to hold small
children in position, particularly sleeping children and those
who may try to squirm out of the belts. The emergency locking
mode is also used while buckling the belts.
*[SR15380(ALL)03/95] Frequently check the child seat’s lap and shoulder harness belts
for correct placement and tightness. Use the child seat only if
the harness belts will stay snug when belts are placed into the
lock mode with a child in the seat. If belts do not remain snug,
take the vehicle to the dealer for child seat repair.

RWARNING
All built-in child restraints, including seats, buckles,
retractors, seat latches, interlocks, and attaching hardware
should be inspected by a qualified dealer technician after
any collision.
*[SR19620(ALL)05/95] If the child seat was in use during a collision, Ford recommends
replacing it. However, if the collision was minor and a qualified
tehcnician finds that the child restraints do not show damage
and continue to operate properly, they do not need to be
replaced. If there is any bending of the vehicle seat back or seat
structure, it should also be replaced. Built-in child seats not in
use during a collision should also be inspected and replaced if
either damage or improper operation is noted.
*[SR19700(ALL)05/95] Cleaning
*[SR19800(ALL)05/95] Your Built-In Child Seat may be cleaned with mild soap and
