When the power mode is set to any mode 
other than OFF and you remove the keyless 
remote from the vehicle and shut the door, an 
alarm will sound. If the alarm continues to 
sound, place the keyless remote in another 
location.

When the power mode is in 
ACCESSORY

The alarm will sound from outside the vehicle.

When the power mode is in ON

An alarm will sound both inside and outside 
the vehicle. In addition, a warning indicator 
will appear on the instrument panel.

Keyless Remote Reminder

1

Keyless Remote Reminder

When the keyless remote is within the system’s 
operational range, and all the doors are closed, the 
warning function cancels.

If the keyless remote is taken out of the vehicle after 
the engine has been started, you can no longer 
change the 

ENGINE START/STOP

 button mode or 

restart the engine. Always make sure if the keyless 
remote is in your vehicle when you operate the 

ENGINE START/STOP

 button.

Removing the keyless remote from the vehicle 
through a window does not activate the warning 
buzzer.

Do not put the keyless remote on the dashboard or in 
the glove box. It may cause the warning buzzer to 
activate. Under some other conditions that can 
prevent the vehicle from locating the keyless remote, 
the warning buzzer may also activate even if the 
keyless remote is within the system’s operational 
range.

Auto High-Beam

Continued

Co

Auto High-Beam

The front wide view camera detects the light sources ahead of the vehicle such as 
the lights of a preceding or oncoming vehicle, or street lights. When you are driving 
at night, the system automatically switches the headlights between low beam and 
high beam depending on the situation.

When all of the following conditions have been met, the auto high-beam indicator 
comes on and the auto high-beam is activated.

The power mode is in ON.

The light switch is in 

AUTO

.

The lever is in the low beam position.

The headlights have been automatically 
activated.

It is dark outside the vehicle.

If the auto high-beam indicator does not come on even when all the conditions have 
been met, carry out the following procedure and the indicator will come on.

Pull the lever toward you for flashing the high beams then release it while driving.

1

Auto High-Beam

The auto high-beam system does not always operate 
in every situation. This system is just for assisting the 
driver. Always observe your surroundings and switch 
the headlights between high beam and low beam 
manually if necessary.

If you find the timing of beam changes inconvenient 
for driving, change the headlight beams manually.

The range and the distance at which the camera can 
recognize varies depending on conditions 
surrounding your vehicle.

Regarding the handling of the camera mounted to 
the inside of the windshield, refer to the following.

2

Front Wide View Camera

 P. 603

For the auto high-beam to work properly:

Do not place an object that reflects light on the 
dashboard.

Keep the windshield around the camera clean. 
When cleaning the windshield, be careful not to 
apply the windshield cleanser to the camera lens.

Do not attach an object, sticker or film to the area 
around the camera.

Do not touch the camera lens.

If the camera receives a strong impact, or repairing of 
the area near the camera is required, consult a dealer.

Automatic switching between high-beam and low-beam

When auto high-beam is active, the headlights switch between high beam and low 
beam based on the following conditions.

1

How to Use the Auto High-Beam

In the following cases, the auto high-beam system 
may not switch the headlights properly or the 
switching timing may be changed. In case of the 
automatic switching operation does not fit for your 
driving habits, please switch the headlights manually.

The brightness of the lights from the preceding or 
oncoming vehicle is intense or poor.

Visibility is poor due to the weather (rain, snow, 
fog, windshield frost, etc.).

Surrounding light sources, such as street lights, 
electric billboards and traffic lights are illuminating 
the road ahead.

The brightness level of the road ahead constantly 
changes.

The road is bumpy or has many curves.

A vehicle suddenly appears in front of you, or a 
vehicle in front of you is not in the preceding or 
oncoming direction.

Your vehicle is tilted with a heavy load in the rear.

A traffic sign, mirror, or other reflective object 
ahead is reflecting strong light toward the vehicle.

The oncoming vehicle frequently disappears under 
roadside trees or behind median barriers.

The preceding or oncoming vehicle is a motorcycle, 
bicycle, mobility scooter, or other small vehicle.

The auto high-beam system keeps the headlight low 
beam when:

Windshield wipers are operating at a high speed.

The camera has detected a dense fog.

Switching to high beam:

All of the following conditions must 
be met before the high beams turn 
on.

Your vehicle speed is 25 mph (40 
km/h) or more.

There are no preceding or 
oncoming vehicle with headlights 
or taillights turned on.

There are few street lights on the 
road ahead.

Switching to low beam:

One of the following conditions 
must be met before the low beams 
turn on.

Your vehicle speed is 15 mph (24 
km/h) or less.

There is a preceding or oncoming 
vehicle with headlights or 
taillights turned on.

There are many street lights on 
the road ahead.

their seat-back to a comfortable, upright 
position.

Reclining a seat-back so that the shoulder part of the belt no longer rests against the 
occupant’s chest reduces the protective capability of the belt. It also increases the 
chance of sliding under the belt in a crash and being seriously injured. The farther a 
seat-back is reclined, the greater the risk of injury.

Adjusting the Seat-Backs

1

Adjusting the Seat-Backs

Do not put a cushion, or other object, between the 
seat-back and your back.

Doing so may interfere with proper seat belt or airbag 
operation.

If you cannot get far enough away from the steering 
wheel and still reach the controls, we recommend 
that you investigate whether some type of adaptive 
equipment may help.

3

WARNING

Reclining the seat-back too far can result in 
serious injury or death in a crash.

Adjust the seat-back to an upright position, 
and sit well back in the seat.

Exhaust Gas Hazard

To lock a seat-back upright, push it backwards until it 
locks.
When returning the seat-back to its original position, 
push it firmly back. Also, make sure all rear shoulder 
belts are positioned in front of the seat-back.

Make sure that the folded seat-back does not press 
against the front passenger seat, as this can cause the 
weight sensors in the front passenger seat to work 
improperly.

This feature alerts you to the possible presence of passengers or items in the rear

OFF if the rear doors were opened shortly before or after the power mode was set

Maintain a Proper Sitting Position

After all occupants have adjusted their seats and head restraints

*1

, and put on their 

seat belts, it is very important that they continue to sit upright, well back in their 
seats, with their feet on the floor, until the vehicle is safely parked and the engine is 
off.

Sitting improperly can increase the chance of injury during a crash. For example, if 
an occupant slouches, lies down, turns sideways, sits forward, leans forward or 
sideways, or puts one or both feet up, the chance of injury during a crash is greatly 
increased.

In addition, an occupant who is out of position in the front seat can be seriously or 
fatally injured in a crash by striking interior parts of the vehicle or being struck by an 
inflating front airbag.

Head Restraints

Your vehicle is equipped with head restraints in all seating positions.

Head restraints are most effective for 
protection against whiplash and other rear-
impact crash injuries when the center of the 
back of the occupant’s head rests against the 
center of the restraint. The tops of the 
occupant’s ears should be level with the 
center height of the restraint.

To raise the head restraint:

Pull it upward.

To lower the head restraint:

Push it down while pressing the release 
button.

Adjusting the Front Head Restraints

In order for the head restraint system to work 
properly:

Do not hang any items on the head restraints, or 
from the restraint legs.

Do not place any objects between an occupant and 
the seat-back.

Install each restraint in its proper location.

3

WARNING

Improperly positioning head restraints 
reduces their effectiveness and increases 
the likelihood of serious injury in a crash.

Make sure head restraints are in place and 
positioned properly before driving.

Position head in the center of the 
head restraint.
