Auto Idle Stop

To help maximize fuel economy, the engine automatically stops when the vehicle 
comes to a stop, depending on environmental and vehicle operating conditions. The 
indicator (green) comes on at this time.

The environmental and vehicle conditions that 
impact Auto Idle Stop system operation are 
varied.

If the driver’s door is opened while the

to notify you that the Auto Idle Stop function 
is in operation.

A message associated with Auto Idle Stop 
appears on the driver information interface.

Auto Idle Stop

The 12-volt battery installed in this vehicle is 
specifically designed for a model with Auto Idle Stop. 
Using a 12-volt battery other than this specified type 
may shorten the 12-volt battery life, and prevent 
Auto Idle Stop from activating. If you need to replace 
the 12-volt battery, make sure to select the specified 
type. Ask a dealer for more details.

The duration of the Auto Idle Stop operation:

Increase in the ECON mode, compared to when the 
ECON mode is off, with climate control in use.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Driving

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Instead of directly measuring the pressure in each tire, the TPMS on this vehicle 
monitors and compares the rolling radius and rotational characteristics of each 
wheel and tire while you are driving to determine if one or more tires are 
significantly under-inflated.

This will cause the low tire pressure/TPMS 
indicator to come on and a message to appear 
on the gauge.

U.S. models

1

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

The system does not monitor the tires when driving 
at low speed.

Conditions such as low ambient temperature and 
altitude change directly affect tire pressure and can 
trigger the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator to come on.

Tire pressure checked and inflated in:

Warm weather can become under-inflated in 
colder weather.

Cold weather can become over-inflated in warmer 
weather.

The low tire pressure/TPMS indicator will not come 
on as a result of over inflation.

The TPMS may not function properly if tire type and 
size are mixed. Make sure to use the same size and 
type of tire.

Checking and Maintaining Tires

steering wheel.

You drive on snowy or slippery roads.

Tire chains are used.

The low tire pressure/TPMS indicator may come on 
under the following conditions:

A compact spare tire is used.

There is a heavier and uneven load on the tires than 
the condition at calibration.

Tire chains are used.

TPMS Calibration

1

TPMS Calibration

TPMS cannot be calibrated if a compact spare tire is 
installed.
The calibration process requires approximately 30 
minutes of cumulative driving at speeds between 
31-62 mph (50-100 km/h).
During this period, if power mode is set to ON and 
the vehicle is not moved within 45 seconds, you may 
notice the low tire pressure indicator comes on 
briefly. This is normal and indicates that the 
calibration process is not yet complete.

If the tire chains are installed, remove them before 
calibrating the TPMS.

If the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator comes on even 
when the properly inflated specified regular tires are 
installed, have your vehicle checked by a dealer.

We recommend that the tires be replaced with the 
same brand, model, and size as the originals. Ask a 
dealer for details.
