stop.
*[II03800(ALL)01/96] — Begin braking well in advance.
*[II03900(ALL)01/96] — Apply the brakes gradually.
*[II04000(ALL)01/96] 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.

*[IS02200(ALL)03/96] Brake System Light
[IS02300(ALL)07/96] The warning light for the brakes indicates two things — that
either the parking brake is on or not fully released, or that the
brake fluid level is low in the master cylinder reservoir. If the
fluid level is low, add fluid to the reservoir as defined under

*[IS03200(ALL)03/96] NOTE: If a fault occurs in the anti-lock system, and the brake
warning light is not lit, the anti-lock system is
disabled but normal brake function remains
operational.
%
*[IS03300(ALL)03/96] Safety Belt Warning Light and Chime
*[IS03400(ALL)03/96] This warning light and chime remind you to fasten your safety
belt. The following conditions will take place:
[IS03500(ALL)12/95] ■ If the driver does not fasten the safety belt before the

*[IS04300(ALL)05/96] The light comes on briefly when you turn the ignition key to
ON, but it should turn off when the engine starts. If the light
does not come on when you turn the ignition to ON or if it
comes on and stays on when you are driving, have your vehicle
serviced as soon as possible. This indicates a possible problem
with one of the vehicle’s emission control systems. You do not
need to have your vehicle towed in.
[IS04400(ALL)05/96] If the light turns on and off at one (1) second intervals while
you are driving the vehicle, it means that the engine is
misfiring. If this condition persists, damage could occur to the
engine or catalytic convertor. Have your vehicle serviced at the
first opportunity. You do not need to have your vehicle towed
in.
[IS04500(ALL)05/96] If the light turns on and off on rare occasions while you are
driving, it means that a malfunction occurred and the condition
corrected itself.
*[IS04600(ALL)08/96] An example of a condition which corrects itself occurs when an
engine running out of fuel begins to misfire. In this case, the
Service Engine Soon Warning Light may turn on and will then
set a Diagnostic Trouble Code indicating that the engine was
misfiring while the last of the fuel was being consumed. After
refueling, the Service Engine Soon Warning Light will turn off
after the vehicle has completed three consecutive warm up
cycles without a misfire condition occurring. A warm up cycle
consists of engine start from a cold condition (engine at ambient
temperature) and running until the engine reaches normal
operating temperature.
[IS04700(ALL)08/96] On the fourth engine start up, the Service Engine Soon Warning
Light will turn off as soon as the engine begins to crank. It is
not necessary to have the engine serviced.

*[IS04800(ALL)05/96] Under certain conditions, the Service Engine Soon Light may
come on if the fuel cap is not properly installed. If the Service
Engine Soon Light comes on and you suspect that the fuel cap
is not properly installed, pull off the road as soon as it is safely
possible and turn off the engine. Remove and replace the cap,
making sure it is properly seated.
*[IS04900(ALL)05/96] After completing the three consecutive warm up cycles and on
the fourth engine start up, the Service Engine Soon Warning
Light should turn off. If the light does not go off after the
fourth engine re-start, have your vehicle serviced by your dealer
or a qualified technician.
%
*[IS05000(ALL)01/96] Charging System Light
[IS05100(ALL)07/96] This light indicates that your battery is not being charged. The
light illuminates briefly during the display self-test every time
you turn your ignition key to the ON position. The light will go
off when the key is turned to the START position. The light
should stay off when the self-test is done if the engine is
running and the alternator is charging.
*[IS05200(ALL)03/96] If the light stays on or illuminates when the engine is running,
have the electrical system checked as soon as possible.

The oil pressure light
[IS05600(ALL)12/95] This light indicates the engine’s oil pressure, not the oil level.
However, if your engine’s oil level is low, it could affect the oil
pressure. The light should come on every time your ignition key
is turned to ON or START, and should go out when the engine
starts. If the light stays on or turns on while the engine is
running, you have lost oil pressure and continued operation will
cause severe engine damage.
*[IS05700(ALL)08/96] If you lose engine oil pressure:
*[IS05800(ALL)08/96] 1. Pull off the road as soon as safely possible.
*[IS05900(ALL)08/96] 2. Shut off the engine immediately. If you do not stop the
engine as soon as safely possible, severe engine damage
could result.
[IS06000(ALL)08/96] 3. Check the engine’s oil level. (See “Checking and Adding
Engine Oil” in the Maintenance and Care chapter of this
Owner Guide.) If you do not follow these instructions, you
or others could be injured. To ensure an accurate reading,
your vehicle should be on level ground.
[IS06100(ALL)08/96] 4. If the level is low, add only as much oil as necessary before
you start the engine again. Do not overfill. Do not operate
the engine if the light is on regardless of the oil level.

*[AS01900(ALL)03/96] How to tune radio stations
*[AS02000(ALL)10/95] There are four ways for you to tune in a particular station. You
can manually locate the station using the “SCAN/TUNE”
button, “SEEK” the station, “SCAN” to the station or select the
station by using the memory buttons, which you can set to any
desired frequency. These four methods are described below.
*[AS02100(ALL)10/95] ■ Using the “SCAN/TUNE” button to manually tune
*[AS02200(ALL)04/96] You can change the frequency up or down one increment at
a time (FM changes in increments of 200kHz; AM changes in
increments of 10kHz) by first pressing the “SCAN/TUNE”
button twice (display shows “TUNE”), then — within
approximately five seconds —pressing and releasing either
the top a or bottom b half of the “SEEK” button. To
change frequencies quickly, press and hold down either the
top or bottom half of the “SEEK” button. While you are
manually tuning, the display will show a blinking “M”.
*[AS02300(ALL)03/96] Manual tuning adjusts your radio to any allowable broadcast
frequency, whether or not a station is present on that
frequency. (See All About Radio Frequencies in this section.)
*[AS02400(ALL)04/96] ■ Using the “SEEK” function
*[AS02500(ALL)04/96] This feature on your radio allows you to automatically select
listenable stations up or down the frequency band. Press the
top a half of the “SEEK” button to select the next listenable
station up the frequency band. Press the bottom b half of
the button to select the next listenable station down the
frequency band. By pressing and holding the button,
listenable stations can be passed over to reach the desired
station.

Memory Store features
[AS03700(ALL)09/95] NOTE: If no stations are in memory presets, you can activate
the feature by pressing and holding the “AUTO
PRESET” button for approximately three seconds.
Auto Memory Load sets all memory buttons in AM,
FM1 and FM2 sequentially by seeking out the first
five strong stations for the respective band and storing
them in memory buttons 1-5. (FM2 will store the
second set of strong stations from the FM band.)
*[AS03800(ALL)05/96] With Auto Memory Store, you can continually set strong
stations into your memory buttons without losing your existing
memory presets, which is especially helpful while traveling.
Your radio will automatically set your memory buttons to the
strong local stations so you don’t have to continually manually
tune to existing stations.
*[AS03900(ALL)02/96] Activate Auto Memory Store by pushing the “AUTO PRESET”
button once. Your radio will set the first five strong stations of
the band you are in (AM, FM1 or FM2) into the memory
buttons. The display will show “AUTO,” then run through the
frequencies, stopping momentarily on the stations being set into
the memory buttons. The radio is now in the “AUTO” mode
and the display will show “AUTO” each time a preset is
activated.
*[AS04000(ALL)10/95] NOTE: If there are fewer than five strong stations in the
frequency band, the remaining unfilled buttons will
store the last strong station detected on the band.
*[AS04100(ALL)03/96] After all stations have been filled, the radio will begin playing
the station stored on memory button 1.

second set of strong stations from the FM band.)
*[AS10260(ALL)05/96] With Auto Memory Store, you can continually set strong
stations into your memory buttons without losing your existing
memory presets, which is especially helpful while traveling.
Your radio will automatically set your memory buttons to the
strong local stations so you don’t have to continually manually
tune to existing stations.
