A MESSAGE FROM CHRYSLER GROUP LLC

Chrysler Group LLC welcomes you as a turbocharged diesel-powered vehicle owner. Your diesel vehicle will sound, feel, drive and operate differently from a gasolinepowered vehicle. It is important that you read and understand this manual.

Almost 100% of the heavy trucks in the United States and Canada are diesel-powered because of the fuel economy, rugged durability, and high torque which permits pulling heavy loads.

You may find that some of the starting, operating, and maintenance procedures are different. However, they are simple to follow and careful adherence to them will ensure that you take full advantage of the features of this engine.

NOTE:

Some aftermarket products may cause severe engine/ transmission and/or exhaust system damage. Your vehicle’s Powertrain Control Systems can detect and store information about vehicle modifications that increase horsepower and torque output such as whether or not performance-enhancing powertrain components, commonly referred to as downloaders, power boxes, or performance chips have been used.

Any chassis/suspension or tire size modifications to the vehicle will effect the performance of the Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning System.

This information cannot be erased and will stay in the system’s memory even if the modification is removed. This information can be retrieved by Chrysler Group LLC, and service and repair facilities, when servicing your vehicle. This information may be used to determine if repair will be covered by New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

There is a probability that the use of a “performance chip” will prohibit the engine from starting. In this instance, the vehicle will need to be serviced by a authorized dealer in order to return the vehicle to it’s factory settings.

8 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE STARTING YOUR VEHICLE

REMOTE STARTING SYSTEM

This system uses the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter to start the engine conveniently from outside the vehicle while still maintaining security. The system has a range of

approximately 300 ft (91 m).

NOTE:

The vehicle must be equipped with an automatic transmission to be equipped with Remote Start.

Obstructions between the vehicle and the RKE transmitter may reduce this range.

The Remote Start system will wait for the “Wait To Start” amber telltale to extinguish before cranking the engine. This allows time for the engine pre-heat cycle to pre-heat the cylinder air, and is normal in cold

weather. Refer to “Electronic Vehicle Information Display (EVIC)” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” for further information on the “Wait To Start” amber telltale and the pre-heat cycle.

How To Use Remote Start

All of the following conditions must be met before the engine will remote start:

Shift lever in PARK

Doors closed

Hood closed

HAZARD switch off

BRAKE switch inactive (brake pedal not pressed)

Battery at an acceptable charge level

RKE PANIC button not pressed

Fuel meets minimum requirement

System not disabled from previous remote start event

Vehicle security alarm not active

Water In Fuel Indicator Light is not illuminated

“Wait To Start” telltale is not illuminated

WARNING!

Do not start or run an engine in a closed garage or confined area. Exhaust gas contains Carbon Monoxide (CO) which is odorless and colorless. Carbon Monoxide is poisonous and can cause serious injury or death when inhaled.

Keep Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitters away from children. Operation of the Remote Start System, windows, door locks or other controls could cause serious injury or death.

THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE STARTING YOUR VEHICLE 9

ENGINE BREAK-IN RECOMMENDATIONS

The diesel engine does not require a break-in period due

to its construction. Normal operation is allowed, provid- 2 ing the following recommendations are followed:

Warm up the engine before placing it under load.

Do not operate the engine at idle for prolonged periods.

Use the appropriate transmission gear to prevent engine lugging.

Observe vehicle oil pressure and temperature indicators.

Check the coolant and oil levels frequently.

Vary throttle position at highway speeds when carrying or towing significant weight.

10 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE STARTING YOUR VEHICLE

NOTE: Light duty operation such as light trailer towing or no load operation will extend the time before the engine is at full efficiency. Reduced fuel economy and power may be seen at this time.

The engine oil installed in the engine at the factory is a high-quality energy conserving type lubricant. Oil changes should be consistent with anticipated climate conditions under which vehicle operations will occur. The recommended viscosity and quality grades are shown under “Fluids, Lubricants and Genuine Parts”, under “Maintaining Your Vehicle” in this manual. NONDETERGENT OR STRAIGHT MINERAL OILS MUST NEVER BE USED.

2. Seat Belt Reminder Light

When the ignition switch is first turned to the ON/RUN position, this light will turn on for four to eight seconds as a bulb check. During the bulb

check, if the driver’s seat belt is unbuckled, a chime will sound. After the bulb check or when driving, if the driver or front passenger seat belt remains unbuckled, the Seat Belt Indicator Light will flash or remain on continuously. Refer to “Occupant Restraints” in “Things To Know Before Starting Your Vehicle” for further information.

UNDERSTANDING YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL 13

 

3. Anti-Lock Brake (ABS) Light

 

This light monitors the Anti-Lock Brake System

 

(ABS). The light will turn on when the ignition

 

switch is turned to the ON/RUN position and

3

may stay on for as long as four seconds.

 

If the ABS light remains on or turns on while driving, it

 

indicates that the Anti-Lock portion of the brake system

 

is not functioning and that service is required. However,

 

the conventional brake system will continue to operate

 

normally if the BRAKE warning light is not on.

 

If the ABS light is on, the brake system should be serviced

 

as soon as possible to restore the benefits of Anti-Lock

 

brakes. If the ABS light does not turn on when the

 

ignition switch is turned to the ON/RUN position, have

 

the light inspected by an authorized dealer.

 

4. High Beam Indicator

 

Indicates that headlights are on high beam.

 

14 UNDERSTANDING YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL

5. Front Fog Light Indicator — If Equipped

This indicator will illuminate when the front fog lights are on.

6. LH Selectable DID

This area of the cluster will display selectable information such as compass, outside temperature, etc. For further information, refer to “Driver Information Display (DID)” in this section.

7. Turn Signal Indicator

The arrows will flash with the exterior turn signals when the turn signal lever is operated. A tone will chime, and a DID message will appear if either turn

signal is left on for more than 1 mile (1.6 km).

NOTE: If either indicator flashes at a rapid rate, check for a defective outside light bulb.

8.Speedometer

Indicates vehicle speed.

9.RH Selectable DID

This area of the cluster will display selectable information such as compass, outside temperature, etc. For further information, refer to “Driver Information Display (DID)” in this section.

10. Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL)

The Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) is part of an onboard diagnostic system called OBD II that monitors engine and automatic transmission control systems. The light will illuminate when the key is in

the ON/RUN position before engine start. If the bulb does not come on when turning the key from OFF to ON/RUN, have the condition checked promptly.

Certain conditions, poor fuel quality, etc., may illuminate the light after engine start. The vehicle should be serviced if the light stays on through several of your typical driving cycles. In most situations, the vehicle will drive normally and will not require towing.

CAUTION!

Prolonged driving with the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) on could cause damage to the engine control system. It also could affect fuel economy and driveability. If the MIL is flashing, severe catalytic converter damage and power loss will soon occur. Immediate service is required.

UNDERSTANDING YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL 15

WARNING!

A malfunctioning catalytic converter, as referenced above, can reach higher temperatures than in normal operating conditions. This can cause a fire if you drive 3 slowly or park over flammable substances such as dry plants, wood, cardboard, etc. This could result in death

or serious injury to the driver, occupants or others.

11. Electronic Park Brake Failure Indicator —

If Equipped

This light indicates the Electronic Parking

Brake system requires service.

16 UNDERSTANDING YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL

12. Temperature Gauge

The temperature gauge shows engine coolant temperature. Any reading within the normal range indicates that the engine cooling system is operating properly.

The gauge pointer will likely indicate a higher temperature when driving in hot weather, up mountain grades, or when towing a trailer. It should not be allowed to exceed the upper limits of the normal operating range.

NOTE: Temperature readings in the orange range of the gauge are acceptable under some high load condition. If the gauge points to the H or #Engine Temperature Hot# DID message appears a light and a single chime will require driver correction.

CAUTION!

Driving with a hot engine cooling system could damage your vehicle. If the temperature gauge reads “H” pull over and stop the vehicle. Idle the vehicle with the air conditioner turned off until the pointer drops back into the normal range. If the pointer remains on the “H” and you hear continuous chimes, turn the engine off immediately and call an authorized dealer for service.

WARNING!

A hot engine cooling system is dangerous. You or others could be badly burned by steam or boiling coolant. You may want to call an authorized dealer for service if your vehicle overheats. If you decide to look under the hood yourself, see “Maintaining Your Vehicle”. Follow the warnings under the Cooling System Pressure Cap paragraph.

13. Brake Warning Light

This light monitors various brake functions, including brake fluid level and parking brake application. If the brake light turns on it may indicate that the parking brake is applied, that

the brake fluid level is low, or that there is a problem with the anti-lock brake system reservoir.

UNDERSTANDING YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL 17

If the light remains on when the parking brake has been disengaged, and the fluid level is at the full mark on the master cylinder reservoir, it indicates a possible brake hydraulic system malfunction or that a problem with the Brake Booster has been detected by the Anti-Lock Brake 3 System (ABS) / Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system.

In this case, the light will remain on until the condition has been corrected. If the problem is related to the brake booster, the ABS pump will run when applying the brake and a brake pedal pulsation may be felt during each stop.

The dual brake system provides a reserve braking capacity in the event of a failure to a portion of the hydraulic system. A leak in either half of the dual brake system is indicated by the Brake Warning Light, which will turn on when the brake fluid level in the master cylinder has dropped below a specified level.

The light will remain on until the cause is corrected.

18 UNDERSTANDING YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL

NOTE: The light may flash momentarily during sharp cornering maneuvers, which change fluid level conditions. The vehicle should have service performed, and the brake fluid level checked.

If brake failure is indicated, immediate repair is necessary.

WARNING!

Driving a vehicle with the red brake light on is dangerous. Part of the brake system may have failed. It will take longer to stop the vehicle. You could have a collision. Have the vehicle checked immediately.

Vehicles equipped with the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS), are also equipped with Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD). In the event of an EBD failure, the Brake Warning Light will turn on along with the ABS Light. Immediate repair to the ABS system is required.

Operation of the Brake Warning Light can be checked by turning the ignition switch from the OFF position to the ON/RUN position. The light should illuminate for approximately two seconds. The light should then turn off unless the parking brake is applied or a brake fault is detected. If the light does not illuminate, have the light inspected by an authorized dealer.

The light also will turn on when the parking brake is applied with the ignition switch in the ON/RUN position.

NOTE: This light shows only that the parking brake is applied. It does not show the degree of brake application.

14. Fuel Gauge/Fuel Door Reminder

The fuel pump symbol points to the side of the vehicle where the fuel door is located. The pointer shows the level of fuel in the fuel tank when the ignition switch is in the ON/RUN position.

15. Tire Pressure Monitoring Telltale Light

Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle

placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires.)

As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated. Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also

UNDERSTANDING YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL 19

reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability.

Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has 3 not reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.

Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction indicator to indicate when the system is not operating properly. The TPMS malfunction indicator is combined with the low tire pressure telltale. When the system detects a malfunction, the telltale will flash for approximately one minute and then remain continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon subsequent vehicle start-ups as long as the malfunction exists. When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may not be able to detect or signal low tire pressure as intended. TPMS malfunctions may occur for a variety of reasons, including the installation of replacement or

20 UNDERSTANDING YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL

alternate tires or wheels on the vehicle that prevent the TPMS from functioning properly. Always check the TPMS malfunction telltale after replacing one or more tires or wheels on your vehicle, to ensure that the replacement or alternate tires and wheels allow the TPMS to continue to function properly.

CAUTION!

The TPMS has been optimized for the original equipment tires and wheels. TPMS pressures and warning have been established for the tire size equipped on your vehicle. Undesirable system operation or sensor damage may result when using replacement equipment that is not of the same size, type, and/or style. Aftermarket wheels can cause sensor damage. Using aftermarket tire sealants may cause the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

(Continued)

CAUTION! (Continued)

sensor to become inoperable. After using an aftermarket tire sealant it is recommended that you take your vehicle to an authorized dealership to have your sensor function checked.

16. Driver Information Display (DID)

The odometer display shows the total distance the vehicle has been driven.

U.S. Federal regulations require that upon transfer of vehicle ownership, the seller certify to the purchaser the correct mileage that the vehicle has been driven. If your odometer needs to be repaired or serviced, the repair technician should leave the odometer reading the same as it was before the repair or service. If she/he cannot do so, then the odometer must be set at zero, and a sticker must be placed in the door jamb stating what the mileage was before the repair or service. It is a good idea for you

to make a record of the odometer reading before the repair/service, so that you can be sure that it is properly reset, or that the door jamb sticker is accurate if the odometer must be reset at zero.

When the appropriate conditions exist, this Driver Information Display (DID) messages. Refer to “Driver Information Display” of your owners manual for more information.

17. Selectable DID Menu

This area of the cluster will display the DID selectable menu. For further information, refer to “Driver Information Display (DID)” in this section.

18. Air Bag Warning Light

This light will turn on for four to eight seconds as a bulb check when the ignition switch is first turned to the ON/RUN position. If the light is either not on during starting, stays on, or turns

UNDERSTANDING YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL 21

on while driving, have the system inspected at an authorized dealer as soon as possible. Refer to “Occupant Restraints” in “Things To Know Before Starting Your Vehicle” of your owners manual for further information.

19. Vehicle Security Light

3

This light will flash rapidly for approximately 15 seconds when the vehicle theft alarm is arming. The light will flash at a slower speed continuously after the alarm is set. The security

light will also come on for about three seconds when the ignition is first turned on.

20. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) OFF Indicator Light — If Equipped

This light indicates the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) is off.

22 UNDERSTANDING YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL

21. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Activation/ Malfunction Indicator Light — If Equipped

The “ESC Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light” in the instrument cluster will come on when the ignition switch is turned to the ON/RUN position. It should go out with the

engine running. If the “ESC Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light” comes on continuously with the engine running, a malfunction has been detected in the ESC system. If this light remains on after several ignition cycles, and the vehicle has been driven several miles (kilometers) at speeds greater than 30 mph (48 km/h), see your authorized dealer as soon as possible to have the problem diagnosed and corrected.

NOTE:

The “ESC Off Indicator Light” and the “ESC Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light” come on momentarily each time the ignition switch is turned to ON/RUN.

Each time the ignition is turned to ON/RUN, the ESC system will be ON, even if it was turned off previously.

The ESC system will make buzzing or clicking sounds when it is active. This is normal; the sounds will stop when ESC becomes inactive following the maneuver that caused the ESC activation.

22.Park/Headlight ON Indicator — If Equipped

This indicator will illuminate when the park lights or headlights are turned on.

The “Water In Fuel Indicator Light” will illuminate when there is water detected in the fuel filters. If this light remains on, DO NOT start the vehicle before you drain the water from the

fuel filters to prevent engine damage. Refer to “Maintenance Procedures/Draining Fuel/Water Separator Filters” in “Maintaining Your Vehicle” for further information.

Wait To Start Light

The “Wait To Start” telltale will illuminate for approximately two seconds when the ignition is turned to the RUN position. It’s duration may be longer based on colder operating conditions. Vehicle will not initiate start until telltale is out. Refer to “Starting Procedures” in “Starting and Operating” for further informa-

tion.

NOTE: The “Wait To Start” telltale may not illuminate if the intake manifold temperature is warm enough.

Low Diesel Exhaust Fluid Light

This telltale will turn on to indicate the Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is low.

Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Messages

This engine meets all required diesel engine emissions standards. To achieve these emissions standards, your vehicle is equipped with a state-of-the-art engine and exhaust system. These systems are seamlessly integrated into your vehicle and managed by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). The PCM manages engine combustion to allow the exhaust system’s catalyst to trap and burn Particulate Matter (PM) pollutants, with no input or interaction on your part.

WARNING!

A hot exhaust system can start a fire if you park over materials that can burn. Such materials might be grass or leaves coming into contact with your exhaust system. Do not park or operate your vehicle in areas where your exhaust system can contact anything that can burn.

UNDERSTANDING YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL 29

Your vehicle has the ability to alert you to additional maintenance required on your vehicle or engine. Refer to the following messages that may be displayed on your Driver Information Display (DID):

Exhaust Filter XX% Full Safely Drive at Highway 3

Speeds to Remedy — This message will be displayed on the Driver Information Display (DID) if the exhaust particulate filter reaches 80% of its maximum storage capacity. Under conditions of exclusive short duration and low speed driving cycles, your diesel engine and exhaust after-treatment system may never reach the conditions required to cleanse the filter to remove the trapped PM. If this occurs, the “Exhaust Filter XX% Full Safely Drive at Highway Speeds to Remedy” message will be displayed in the DID. If this message is displayed, you will hear one chime to assist in alerting you of this condition. By simply driving your vehicle at highway speeds for up to 20 minutes, you can remedy the condition in the particulate filter

30 UNDERSTANDING YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL

system and allow your diesel engine and exhaust after-treatment system to cleanse the filter to remove the trapped PM and restore the system to normal operating condition.

Exhaust System — Regeneration In Process Exhaust Filter XX% Full — This message indicates that the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is self-cleaning. Maintain your current driving condition until regeneration is completed.

Exhaust System — Regeneration Completed — This message indicates that the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) self-cleaning is completed. If this message is displayed, you will hear one chime to assist in alerting you of this condition.

Exhaust Service Required — See Dealer Now — This messages indicates regeneration has been disabled due to a system malfunction. At this point the engine Powertrain Control Module (PCM) will register a fault code, the instrument panel will display a MIL light.

CAUTION!

See your authorized dealer, as damage to the exhaust system could occur soon with continued operation.

Exhaust Filter Full — Power Reduced See Dealer

This message indicates the PCM has derated the engine to limit the likelihood of permanent damage to the after-treatment system. If this condition is not corrected and a dealer service is not performed, extensive exhaust after-treatment damage can occur. To correct this condition it will be necessary to have your vehicle serviced by your local authorized dealer.

NOTE: Failing to follow the oil change indicator, changing your oil and resetting the oil change indicator by 0 miles remaining will prevent the diesel exhaust filter from performing it’s cleaning routine. This will shortly result in a Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) and reduced engine power. Only an authorized dealer will be able to correct this condition.

CAUTION!

See your authorized dealer, as damage to the exhaust system could occur soon with continued operation.

Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) Warning Messages

Your vehicle will begin displaying warning messages when the DEF level reaches a driving range of approximately 500 miles. If the following warning message

NOTE:

The gauge may take up to five seconds to update after adding a gallon or more of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) to the DEF tank. If you have a fault related to the DEF system, the gauge may not update to the new level. See your authorized dealer for service.

The DEF gauge may also not immediately update after a refill if the temperature of the DEF fluid is below 12F (-11C). The DEF line heater will possibly warm up the DEF fluid and allow the gauge to update after a period of run time. Under very cold conditions, it is possible that the gauge may not reflect the new fill level for several drives.
