Driving your vehicle

The severe weather conditions of
winter quickly wear out tires and
cause other problems. To minimize
winter driving problems, you should
take the following suggestions:

Snow or Icy Conditions

You need to keep sufficient distance
between your vehicle and the vehicle
in front of you.
Apply the brakes gently. Speeding,
rapid acceleration, sudden brake
applications, and sharp turns are
potentially very hazardous practices.
During deceleration, use regenera-
tive braking to the fullest extent.
Sudden brake applications on snowy
or icy roads may cause the vehicle to
skid.
To drive your vehicle in deep snow, it
may be necessary to use snow tires
or to install tire chains on your tires.
Always carry emergency equipment.
Some of the items you may want to
carry include tire chains, tow straps
or chains, a flashlight, emergency
flares, sand, a shovel, jumper cables,
a window scraper, gloves, ground
cloth, coveralls, a blanket, etc.

Snow tires

If you mount snow tires on your vehi-
cle, make sure to use radial tires of
the same size and load range as the
original tires. Mount snow tires on all
four wheels to balance your vehicle’s
handling in all weather conditions.
The traction provided by snow tires
on dry roads may not be as high as
your vehicle's original equipment
tires. Check with the tire dealer for
maximum speed recommendations.

Information 

Do not install studded tires without
first checking local, state and munici-
pal regulations for possible restric-
tions against their use.

Air cleaner filter (FCEV)

The snow may block the air cleaner
filter after driving the vehicle in heavy
snow when the ambient temperature
is below 50°F (10°C).
If a warning message "Air filter
blocked. Check filter or see user
manual" appears on LCD display
after turning off the vehicle, remove
the snow from the inside of the air
cleaner filter and turn on and off the
vehicle. If the warning message is
displayed again, the exhaust pipe
may be blocked. Then, move your
vehicle indoors and leave it inside
more than one day to defrost the
exhaust pipe.
If the warning message is displayed
again, have the vehicle checked by
an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

Snow tires should be equivalent
in size and type to the vehicle's
standard tires. Otherwise, the
safety and handling of your
vehicle may be adversely affect-
ed.

Tire chains

Since the sidewalls of radial tires are
thinner than other types of tires, they
may be damaged by mounting some
types of tire chains on them.
Therefore, the use of snow tires is
recommended instead of tire chains.
Do not mount tire chains on vehicles
equipped with aluminum wheels; if
possible use a wire type chain. If tire
chains must be used, use genuine
HYUNDAI parts and install the tire
chain after reviewing the instructions
provided with the tire chains.
Damage to your vehicle caused by
improper tire chain use is not cov-
ered by your vehicle manufacturer’s
warranty.

Information 

• Install tire chains only in pairs and

on the front tires. It should be noted
that installing tire chains on the
tires will provide a greater driving
force, but will not prevent side
skids.

• Do not install studded tires without

first checking local, state and
municipal regulations for possible
restrictions against their use.

Chain Installation

When installing tire chains, follow the
manufacturer's instructions and
mount them as tightly possible. Drive
slowly (less than 20 mph (30 km/h))
with chains installed. If you hear the
chains contacting the body or chas-
sis, stop and tighten them. If they still
make contact, slow down until the
noise stops. Remove the tire chains
as soon as you begin driving on
cleared roads.
When mounting snow chains, park
the vehicle on level ground away
from traffic. Turn on the vehicle
Hazard Warning Flasher and place a
triangular emergency warning device
behind the vehicle (if available).
Always place the vehicle in P (Park),
apply the parking brake and turn off
the vehicle before installing snow
chains.

i

The use of tire chains may
adversely affect vehicle han-
dling:

Drive less than 20 mph (30
km/h) or the chain manufac-
turer's recommended speed
limit, whichever is lower.

Drive carefully and avoid
bumps, holes, sharp turns,
and other road hazards, which
may cause the vehicle to
bounce.

Avoid sharp turns or locked
wheel braking.

WARNING  

OFE058102 

5-132

Driving your vehicle

When using tire chains:
• Wrong size chains or improperly

installed chains can damage
your vehicle's brake lines, sus-
pension, body and wheels.

• Use SAE "S" class or wire

chains.

• If you hear noise caused by

chains contacting the body,
retighten the chain to prevent
contact with the vehicle body.

• To prevent body damage,

retighten the chains after driving
0.3~0.6 miles (0.5~1.0 km).

• Do not use tire chains on vehi-

cles equipped with aluminum
wheels. If unavoidable, use a
wire type chain.

• Use wire chains less than 0.47 in

(12 mm) thick to prevent damage
to the chain's connection.

Winter Precautions

Use high quality ethylene glycol
coolant

Your vehicle is delivered with high
quality ethylene glycol coolant in the
cooling system. It is the only type of
coolant that should be used because
it helps prevent corrosion in the cool-
ing system, lubricates the water
pump and prevents freezing. Be sure
to replace or replenish your coolant
in accordance with the maintenance
schedule in chapter 7. Before winter,
have your coolant tested to assure
that its freezing point is sufficient for
the temperatures anticipated during
the winter.

Use approved window washer
anti-freeze in system

To keep the water in the window
washer system from freezing, add an
approved window washer anti-freeze
solution in accordance with instruc-
tions on the container. Window wash-
er anti-freeze is available from an
authorized HYUNDAI dealer and
most auto parts outlets. Do not use
coolant or other types of anti-freeze
as these may damage the paint fin-
ish.

Do not let your parking brake
freeze

Under some conditions your parking
brake can freeze in the engaged
position. This is most likely to happen
when there is an accumulation of
snow or ice around or near the rear
brakes or if the brakes are wet. If
there is a risk the parking brake may
freeze, apply it only temporarily while
you shift to P (Park) and block the
rear wheels so the car cannot roll.
Then release the parking brake.

Do not let ice and snow accu-
mulate underneath

Under some conditions, snow and
ice can build up under the fenders
and interfere with the steering. When
driving in severe winter conditions
where this may happen, you should
periodically check underneath the
car to be sure the movement of the
front wheels and the steering com-
ponents is not obstructed.

Don't place foreign objects or
materials in the fuel cell power
module compartment

Placement of foreign object or mate-
rials which prevent cooling of the
vehicle, in the fuel cell power module
compartment, may cause a failure.
The manufacturer is not responsible
for the damage caused by such
placement.

To keep locks from freezing

To keep the locks from freezing,
squirt an approved de-icer fluid or
glycerine into the key opening. If a
lock is covered with ice, squirt it with
an approved de-icing fluid to remove
the ice. If the lock is frozen internally,
you may be able to thaw it out by
using a heated key. Handle the heat-
ed key with care to avoid injury.

5-134

Driving your vehicle

Two labels on your driver's door sill
show how much weight your vehicle
was designed to carry: the Tire and
Loading Information Label and the
Certification Label.
Before loading your vehicle, familiar-
ize yourself with the following terms
for determining your vehicle's weight
ratings, from the vehicle's specifica-
tions and the Certification Label:

Base Curb Weight

This is the weight of the vehicle
including a full tank of fuel and all
standard equipment. It does not
include passengers, cargo, or option-
al equipment.

Vehicle Curb Weight

This is the weight of your new vehicle
when you picked it up from your deal-
er plus any aftermarket equipment.

Cargo Weight

This figure includes all weight added
to the Base Curb Weight, including
cargo and optional equipment.

GAW (Gross Axle Weight)

This is the total weight placed on
each axle (front and rear) - including
vehicle curb weight and all payload.

GAWR (Gross Axle Weight Rating)

This is the maximum allowable
weight that can be carried by a single
axle (front or rear). These numbers
are shown on the Certification Label.
The total load on each axle must
never exceed its GAWR.

GVW (Gross Vehicle Weight)

This is the Base Curb Weight plus
actual Cargo Weight plus passen-
gers.

GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight
Rating)

This is the maximum allowable
weight of the fully loaded vehicle
(including all options, equipment,
passengers and cargo). The GVWR
is shown on the Certification Label
located on the driver’s door sill.

The label located on the driver's door
sill gives the original tire size, cold
tire pressures recommended for your
vehicle, the number of people that
can be in your vehicle and vehicle
capacity weight.

Vehicle capacity weight

903 lbs. (410 kg)

Vehicle capacity weight is the maxi-
mum combined weight of occupants
and cargo. If your vehicle is equipped
with a trailer, the combined weight
includes the tongue load.

Seating capacity

Total : 5 persons

(Front seat : 2 persons,
Rear seat : 3 persons)

Seating capacity is the maximum
number of occupants including a
driver, your vehicle may carry.
However, the seating capacity may
be reduced based upon the weight of
all of the occupants, and the weight
of the cargo being carried or towed.
Do not overload the vehicle as there
is a limit to the total weight, or load
limit including occupants and cargo,
the vehicle can carry.

Towing capacity

We do not recommend using this
vehicle for trailer towing.

Cargo  capacity

The cargo capacity of your vehicle
will increase or decrease depending
on the weight and the number of
occupants and the tongue load, if
your vehicle is equipped with a trailer.

Steps for determining correct
load limit

1. Locate the statement "The com-

bined weight of occupants and
cargo should never exceed XXX
kg or XXX lbs." on your vehicle's
placard.

2. Determine the combined weight of

the driver and passengers that will
be riding in your vehicle.

3. Subtract the combined weight of

the driver and passengers from
XXX kg or XXX lbs.

4. The resulting figure equals the

available amount of cargo and lug-
gage load capacity. For example, if
the "XXX" amount equals 1400
lbs. and there will be five 150 lb
passengers in your vehicle, the
amount of available cargo and lug-
gage load capacity is 650 lbs.
(1400 - 750 (5 x 150) = 650 lbs.)

5. Determine the combined weight of

luggage and cargo being loaded
on the vehicle. That weight may
not safely exceed the available
cargo and luggage load capacity
calculated in Step 4.

5-136

Driving your vehicle

6. If your vehicle will be towing a trail-

er, load from your trailer will be
transferred to your vehicle. Consult
this manual to determine how this
reduces the available cargo and
luggage load capacity of your vehi-
cle.

Do not overload the vehicle as
there is a limit to the total
weight, or load limit, including
occupants and cargo, the vehi-
cle can carry. Overloading can
shorten the life of the vehicle. If
the GVWR or the GAWR is
exceeded, parts on the vehicle
can be broken, and it can
change the handling of your
vehicle. These could cause you
to lose control and result in an
accident.

Driving your vehicle

Certification label

The certification label is located on
the driver’s door sill at the center pil-
lar and shows the maximum allow-
able weight of the fully loaded vehi-
cle. This is called the GVWR (Gross
Vehicle Weight Rating). The GVWR
includes the weight of the vehicle, all
occupants, fuel and cargo.
This label also tells you the maxi-
mum weight that can be supported
by the front and rear axles, called
Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR).

The total weight of the vehicle,
including all occupants, accessories,
cargo, and trailer tongue load must
not exceed the Gross Vehicle Weight
Rating (GVWR) or the Gross Axle
Weight Rating (GAWR). To find out
the actual loads on your front and
rear axles, you need to go to a weigh
station and weigh your vehicle. Be
sure to spread out your load equally
on both sides of the centerline.

OBH059070

Overloading

Never exceed the GVWR for
your vehicle, the GAWR for
either the front or rear axle
and vehicle capacity weight.
Exceeding these ratings can
affect your vehicle’s handling
and braking ability, and cause
an accident.

Do not overload your vehicle.
Overloading your vehicle can
cause heat buildup in your
vehicle’s tires and possible
tire failure, increased stop-
ping distances and poor vehi-
cle handling-all of which may
result in a crash.

The hazard warning flasher serves
as a warning to other drivers to exer-
cise extreme caution when approach-
ing, overtaking, or passing your vehi-
cle.
It should be used whenever emer-
gency repairs are being made or
when the vehicle is stopped near the
edge of a roadway.

To turn the hazard warning flasher
on or off, press the hazard warning
flasher button. The button is located
in the center fascia panel. Both the
left and right turn signal lights will

If a fire occurs

1. Stop the vehicle, shift gear to the

P(Park) position, engage the park-
ing brake, and turn the vehicle off.

The flow of hydrogen into the fuel

cell stack will be shut off to prevent
the electricity from being generat-
ed.

2. If the fire is small, which can be

extinguished with fire extinguisher,
use carbon dioxide extinguisher.

You can also extinguish the fire

with water when the vehicle power
is turned off.

If the fire is too big to be extin-
guished with the fire extinguisher,
evacuate from the vehicle, call the
fire department, and let them know
the vehicle is a Fuel Cell Electric
Vehicle. Do not come close to the
vehicle until the fire is totally extin-
guished.

Emergency venting of hydro-
gen gas

If the temperature near the safety
valve located at the rear under vehi-
cle is over 230°F (110°C) caused by
a fire or other reasons, the safety
valve will open to vent hydrogen gas.
Venting the hydrogen gas makes a
loud noise because the venting
speed is very fast. Stay well away
from the vehicle. The discharge of
hydrogen gas from the vehicle is
flammable and could cause a fire.

If a submersion in water
occurs

If your vehicle was flooded and has
soaked carpeting or water on the
flooring, you should not try to start
the vehicle by pressing the POWER
button.
Contact an authorized HYUNDAI
dealer immediately.

If the vehicle stalls at a cross-
road or crossing

If the vehicle stalls at a crossroad or
crossing, set the gear in the N
(Neutral) position and then push the
vehicle to a safe place.

If you have a flat tire while
driving

If a tire goes flat while you are driv-
ing:
1. Take your foot off the accelerator

pedal and let the vehicle slow
down while driving straight ahead.
Do not apply the brakes immedi-
ately or attempt to pull off the road
as this may cause a loss of con-
trol. When the vehicle has slowed
to such a speed that it is safe to do
so, brake carefully and pull off the
road. Drive off the road as far as
possible and park on firm, level
ground. If you are on a divided
highway, do not park in the medi-
an area between the two traffic
lanes.

2. When the vehicle is stopped, turn

on your emergency hazard flash-
ers, set the parking brake and shift
gear to the P(Park) position.

3. Have all passengers get out of the

vehicle. Be sure they all get out on
the side of the vehicle that is away
from traffic.

If the vehicle stalls while driv-
ing

1. Reduce your speed gradually,

keeping a straight line. Move cau-
tiously off the road to a safe place.

2. Turn on your emergency flashers.
3. Try to start the vehicle again. If

your vehicle will not start, contact
an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

• Be sure the shift lever is in P

(Park). The vehicle starts only
when the shift lever is in P (Park).

• This vehicle does not have a regu-

lar 12 V battery that needs period-
ic replacement. It is lithium ion
polymer type integrated into the

charge. If the 12 V battery is discon-
nected prior
to starting the vehicle, press the 12 V
Battery Reset switch again and then
immediately start the vehicle as
explained.
Repeated use of the 12 V Battery
Reset switch without a sufficient
vehicle ON cycle (30 Min+) may
cause over discharge of the 12 V bat-
tery, which will prevent the vehicle
from starting. If the 12 V battery is
over discharged to a point that the
reset does not work, try to jump-start
the vehicle.

Information

After starting the vehicle (

indica-

tor on), the 12 V battery is being
charged whether the accelerator pedal
is depressed or not.

External power source using 12 V
battery
The use of external power acces-
sories may reduce performance
and function of the vehicle.
Especially, the use of dash cam-
eras may shut off the power of the
vehicle prior to the dash camera's
automatic shut-down.
If the power of the vehicle is shut
off, start the vehicle as explained.
(refer to "Using the 12 V Battery
Switch")

Jump Starting

In the event vehicle still does not
have a functional 12 V battery (check
if interior lights will not turn on) then
you can try a jump start using a 12 V
booster pack or jumper cables from
another vehicle's 12 V battery
according to the following instruc-
tions.

1. Position the vehicles close enough

that the jumper cables will reach,
but do not allow the vehicles to
touch.

2. Avoid fans or any moving parts in

the fuel cell power module com-
partment at all times, even when
the vehicles are turned off.

3. Turn off all electrical devices such

as radios, lights, air conditioning,
etc. Put the vehicles in P (Park)
and set the parking brake. Turn
both vehicles OFF.

NOTICE

Jump starting can be danger-
ous if done incorrectly. Follow
the jump starting procedure in
this section to avoid serious
injury or damage to your vehi-
cle. If in doubt about how to
properly jump start your vehi-
cle, we strongly recommend
that you have a service techni-
cian or towing service do it for
you.

CAUTION

Before jump starting, make sure
to correctly identify the positive
(+) and negative (-) terminals to
avoid reverse polarity connec-
tions.

Tire Pressure Monitoring
System

Each tire, including the spare (if pro-
vided), should be checked monthly
when cold and inflated to the inflation
pressure recommended by the vehi-
cle manufacturer on the vehicle plac-
ard 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 pres-
sure 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 pres-
sure telltale illuminates, you should
stop and check your tires as soon as
possible, and inflate them to the
proper pressure. Driving on a signifi-
cantly under-inflated tire causes the
tire to overheat and can lead to tire
failure.
Under-inflation also reduces fuel effi-
ciency 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 mainte-
nance, and it is the driver's responsi-
bility to maintain correct tire pres-
sure, even if under-inflation has not
reached the level to trigger illumina-
tion 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 mal-
function indicator is combined with
the low tire pressure telltale. When
the system detects a malfunction,
the telltale will flash for approximate-
ly one minute and then remain con-
tinuously illuminated. This sequence
will continue upon subsequent vehi-
cle start-ups as long as the malfunc-
tion exists.
When the malfunction indicator is
illuminated, the system may not be
able to detect or signal low tire pres-
sure as intended. TPMS malfunc-
tions may occur for a variety of rea-
sons, including the installation of
replacement or 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 alter-
nate tires and wheels allow the TPMS
to continue to function properly.

Over-inflation or under-inflation
can reduce tire life, adversely
affect vehicle handling, and
lead to sudden tire failure that
may cause loss of vehicle con-
trol resulting in an accident.

TPMS Malfunction
Indicator

The TPMS Malfunction Indicator will
illuminate after it blinks for approxi-
mately one minute when there is a
problem with the Tire Pressure
Monitoring System.
Have the system checked by an
authorized HYUNDAI dealer as soon
as possible.

If there is a malfunction with the
TPMS, the individual tire pres-
sures in the cluster LCD display
will not be available. Have the sys-
tem checked by an authorized
HYUNDAI dealer as soon as possi-
ble.

NOTICE

In winter or cold weather, the
Low Tire  Pressure Telltale  may
be illuminated if the tire pres-
sure was adjusted to the recom-
mended tire inflation pressure
in warm weather. It does not
mean your TPMS is malfunc-
tioning because the decreased
temperature leads to a propor-
tional lowering of tire pressure.
When you drive your vehicle
from a warm area to a cold area
or from a cold area to a warm
area, or the outside temperature
is greatly higher or lower, you
should check the tire inflation
pressure and adjust the tires to
the recommended tire inflation
pressure.

CAUTION

Low pressure damage

Significantly low tire pressure
makes the vehicle unstable and
can contribute to loss of vehicle
control and increased braking
distances.
Continued driving on low pres-
sure tires can cause the tires to
overheat and fail.

operation of the TPMS.

Changing a Tire with TPMS

If you have a flat tire, the Low Tire
Pressure and position indicator will
come on. Have the flat tire repaired
by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer
as soon as possible.

Once the original tire equipped with
a tire pressure monitoring sensor is
reinflated to the recommended pres-
sure and reinstalled on the vehicle,
the Low Tire Pressure position indi-
cator and TPMS Malfunction
Indicator will go off within a few min-
utes of driving.

If the indicators do not disappear
after a few minutes, please visit an
authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
Each wheel is equipped with a tire
pressure sensor mounted inside the
tire behind the valve stem. You must
use TPMS specific wheels. It is rec-
ommended that you always have
your tires serviced by an authorized
HYUNDAI dealer.

NOTICE

Never use a puncture-repairing
agent not approved by HYUNDAI
dealer to repair and/or inflate a
low pressure tire. Tire sealant
not approved by HYUNDAI deal-
er may damage the tire pressure
sensor.

CAUTION

6-16

What to do in an emergency

You may not be able identify a tire
with low pressure by simply looking
at it. Always use a good quality tire
pressure gage to measure the tire's
inflation pressure. Please note that a
tire that is hot (from being driven) will
have a higher pressure measure-
ment than a tire that is cold.
A cold tire means the vehicle has
been sitting for 3 hours and driven for
less than 1 mile (1.6 km) in that 3
hour period.
Allow the tire to cool before measur-
ing the inflation pressure. Always be
sure the tire is cold before inflating to
the recommended pressure.

What to do in an emergency

Introduction

With the Tire Mobility Kit you stay
mobile even after experiencing a tire
puncture.
The compressor and sealing com-
pound system effectively and com-
fortably seals most punctures in a
passenger car tire caused by nails
or similar objects and reinflates the
tire.
After you ensure that the tire is  prop-
erly sealed you can drive cautiously
on the tire (distance up to 120 miles
(200 km)) at a max. speed of (50
mph (80 km/h)) in order to reach a
service station or tire dealer for the
tire replacement.
It is possible that some tires, espe-
cially with larger punctures or dam-
age to the sidewall, cannot be sealed
completely.
Air pressure loss in the tire may
adversely affect tire performance.
For this reason, you should avoid
abrupt steering or other driving
maneuvers, especially if the vehicle
is heavily loaded or if a trailer is in
use.

The Tire Mobility Kit is not designed
or intended as a permanent tire
repair method and is to be used for
one tire only.
This instruction shows you step by
step how to temporarily seal the
puncture simply and reliably.
Read the section "Notes on the safe
use of the Tire Mobility Kit".

Notes on the safe use of the
Tire Mobility Kit

• Park your car at the side of the

road so that you can work with the
Tire Mobility Kit away from moving
traffic.

• To be sure your vehicle will not

move, even when you're on fairly
level ground, always set your park-
ing brake.

• Only use the Tire Mobility Kit for

sealing/inflation passenger car
tires. Only punctured areas located
within the tread region of the tire
can be sealed using the tire mobil-
ity kit.

• Do not use on motorcycles, bicy-

cles or any other type of tires.

• When the tire and wheel are dam-

aged, do not use Tire Mobility Kit
for your safety.

• Use of the Tire Mobility Kit may not

be effective for tire damage larger
than approximately 0.16 in. (4
mm).
Please contact the nearest
HYUNDAI dealership if the tire
cannot be made roadworthy with
the Tire Mobility Kit.

• Do not use the Tire Mobility Kit if a

tire is severely damaged by driving
run flat or with insufficient air pres-
sure.

• Do not remove any foreign objects

such as nails or screws that have
penetrated the tire.

• Provided the car is outdoors, leave

the vehicle ON (

indicator ON).

Otherwise operating the compres-
sor may eventually drain the car
battery.

• Never leave the Tire Mobility Kit

unattended while it is being used.

• Do not leave the compressor run-

ning for more than 10 minutes at a
time or it may overheat.

• In case of skin contact with the-

sealant, wash the area thoroughly-
with plenty of water. If the irritation-
persists, seek medical attention.

• In case of eye contact with the

sealant,flush your eyes for at least
15 minutes. If the irritation persists,
seek medical attention.

• In case of swallowing the

sealant,rinse the mouth and drink
plenty ofwater. However, never give
anythingto an unconscious person
and seek medical attention imme-
diately.

• Long time exposure to the sealant-

may cause damage to bodily tissue
such as kidney, etc.

What to do in an emergency

Distributing the sealant

9. Immediately drive approximately

4~6 miles (7~10 km or about 10
minutes) to evenly distribute the
sealant in the tire.

Do not exceed a speed of 50 mph
(80 km/h). If possible, do not fall
below a speed of 12 mph (20 km/h).
While driving, if you experience any
unusual vibration, ride disturbance or
noise, reduce your speed and drive
with caution until you can safely pull
off of the side of the road.

10. After driving approximately 4~6

miles (7~10 km or about 
10 minutes), stop at a safe loca-
tion.

11. Connect the other end of the fill-

ing hose (3) directly into the tire
valve.

12. Plug the compressor power cord

into the vehicle power outlet.
