Fuel Cap:

Loose Gas Cap essage

If a “gas cap” message (shown as gASCAP) appears, tighten the gas cap until a “clicking” sound is heard.

Press the odometer reset button to turn the message off.

If the message continues to appear for more than three days after tightening the gas cap, see your dealer.

Tire Pressure Monitoring

System (TPMS):

A Tire Pressure Monitoring Light and a “low tire” message will display in your instrument cluster along with an audible chime if one or more of your vehicle’s four road tires are significantly under-inflated.

Check the inflation pressure of each tire and inflate to the recommended pressure for your vehicle. The tire pressures recommended for your vehicle are found on the “Tire and Loading Information” label located on the driver’s side door opening. The TPMS light should not be used as a tire pressure gauge when adjusting your tire pressure.

It is recommended that you check the tire pressure in the morning when tires are cool; inflate each tire to the recommended pressure for your vehicle. The light will turn off after your vehicle’s tire pressures are properly inflated and the pressure has been recognized. The vehicle may need to be driven for up to 20 minutes above 15 mph (25 km/h) before the light will turn off.

Temperature changes can affect tire pressure, causing the TPMS light to turn on. Tire pressures will also increase as the vehicle is driven - this is normal and you should not adjust for this increased pressure.

Driving on under-inflated tires reduces your vehicle’s fuel efficiency and tire tread life. If a spare tire is in use on the vehicle, the TPMS light may turn on. Refer to your Owner’s Manual.

Oil Change Indicator:


If an “oil change” message (shown as CHAngE Oil or Oil Change Required) appears and a single chime sounds, it is time for your next

required oil change.
