Warnings and Abnormal Operations

Normal Operating Procedures

Door Locks

CAUTION

Unlocked doors can be dangerous. Passengers -- especially children -- can easily open the doors and fall out. When a door is locked, the inside handle wonít open it. Outsiders can easily enter through an unlocked door when you slow down or stop your vehicle. This may not be so obvious: You increase the chance of being thrown out of the vehicle in a crash if the doors arenít locked. Wear safety belts properly, lock your doors, and you will be far better off whenever you drive your vehicle.

Remote Hatch/Trunk Lid Release

To use the remote hatch/trunk lid release on automatic transmission vehicles,

To use the manual release cables to open the hatch and you have lost battery power

 

To use the manual release cable to open the trunk lid

 

CAUTION

It can be dangerous to drive with the hatch/trunk lid open because carbon monoxide (CO) gas can come into your vehicle. You canít see or smell CO. It can cause unconsciousness and even death.

If you must drive with the hatch/trunk lid open or if electrical wiring or other cable connections must pass through the seal between the body and the hatch/trunk lid:

See "Engine Exhaust" in the Index.

NOTICE:

If you put things in the hatch/trunk area, be sure they wonít break the glass when you close it. Never slam the hatch/trunk lid down. You could break the glass or damage the defogger grid. When you close the hatch/trunk lid, make sure you pull down from the center, not the sides. If you pull the hatch/trunk lid down from the side too often, the weatherstrip can be damaged.

NOTICE:

Do not store heavy or sharp objects in the three storage compartments located in the hatch/trunk area. If you do, the objects could damage the underbody.

  1. With your foot off the accelerator pedal, turn the ignition key to START and hold it there.
  2. If your engine still wonít start (or starts but then stops), it could be flooded with too much gasoline.

NOTICE: Your engine is designed to work with the electronics in your vehicle. If you add electrical parts or accessories, you could change the way the engine operates. Before adding electrical equipment, check with your dealer. If you donít, your engine might not perform properly. If you ever have to have your vehicle towed, see the part of this manual that tells how to do it without damaging your vehicle. See "Towing Your Vehicle" in the Index.

Automatic Transmission Operation

There are several different positions for your shift lever.

PARK (P):

CAUTION

It is dangerous to get out of your vehicle if the shift lever is not fully in PARK (P) with the parking brake firmly set. Your vehicle can roll. Donít leave your vehicle when the engine is running unless you have to. If you have left the engine running, the vehicle can move suddenly. You or others could be injured. To be sure your vehicle wonít move, even when youíre on fairly level ground, always set your parking brake and move the shift lever to PARK (P). See "Shifting Into PARK (P)" in the Index.

Return to Automatic Transmission Operation

REVERSE (R): Use this gear to back up.

NOTICE:

Shifting to REVERSE (R) while your vehicle is moving forward could damage your transmission. Shift to REVERSE (R) only after your vehicle is stopped.

NEUTRAL (N):

CAUTION

Shifting out of PARK (P) or NEUTRAL (N) while your engine is "racing" (running at high speed) is dangerous. Unless your foot is firmly on the brake pedal, your vehicle could move very rapidly. You could lose control and hit people or objects. Donít shift out of PARK (P) or NEUTRAL (N) while your engine is racing.

NOTICE:

Damage to your transmission caused by shifting out of PARK (P) or NEUTRAL (N) with the engine racing isnít covered by your warranty.

Running Your Engine While Youíre Parked (Automatic Transmission)

Itís better not to park with the engine running.

CAUTION

Idling the engine with the climate control system off could allow dangerous exhaust into your vehicle (see the earlier Caution under "Engine Exhaust").

Also, idling in a closed-in place can let deadly carbon monoxide (CO) into your vehicle even if the fan switch is at the highest setting. One place this can happen is a garage. Exhaust, with CO, can come in easily. NEVER park in a garage with the engine running.

Another closed-in place can be a blizzard. (See "Blizzard" in the Index.)

Storing the Roof Panel

CAUTION

If the roof panel is not stored properly, it could be thrown about the vehicle in a crash or sudden maneuver. People in the vehicle could be injured. Whenever you store the roof panel in the vehicle, always be sure that it is stored securely in the rear area using the storage pins.

NOTICE:

To avoid damage to the roof panel, paint and weatherstripping, do not drop or rest it on its edges. Place the roof panel in the egg-shaped stowage receivers after removing it from the vehicle.

  1. Turn the roof panel so that the rear edge of the panel is facing the storage area.
  2. Push the panel forward until the pins bottom out in the receivers.
  3. There are two spring-loaded storage pins on the rear wall of the storage compartment (A).
  4. Gently lower the roof panel onto the carpet ledge.
  5. Gently lift and lower the roof panel to be sure it is locked into place.

 

Return To Roof Panel (Coupe)

Installing the Roof Panel

 CAUTION:

An improperly attached roof panel may fall into or fly off the vehicle. You or others could be injured. After installing the roof panel, always check that it is firmly attached by pushing up on the underside of the panel. Check now and then to be sure the roof panel is firmly in place.

NOTICE:

To avoid damage to the roof panel, paint and weatherstripping, do not drop or rest it on its edges.  

  1. Check to be sure that the front handles and rear latch on the ceiling are in their opened positions before attempting to install the roof panel. 
  2. If the roof panel is stored in the rear area,
  3. Remove the roof panel from the storage compartment.
  4. In most cases,
  5. Position the rear edge of the roof panel to the weatherstrip on the back of the roof opening (A).
  6. Rotate the front handles toward the side doors to the closed position.
  7. Hook the rear latch by pushing the lever up to the locked position.
  8. Grasp and tug the roof panel up and down andside-to-side to make sure the roof panel is securely installed.

The cable is located underneath the carpeting behind the driver and passenger seats in the center of the vehicle.

NOTICE:

Be sure that the rear edge (B) of the convertible top is in the full-down position before lowering the top into the storage compartment or damage to the top may occur.

5. Push forward on the front edge (A) of the convertible top to allow the rear edge (B) of the convertible top to be rotated to its full-down position. 

6. Then move the top rearward to its fully-stored position.

7. After the top is stored, apply one even push on the center of the front edge (A) of the convertible top to assure the top is fully retracted.

8. Close the storage compartment lid (C) by closing with a swift firm motion.

Return To Convertible (Option)

Raising Your Convertible Top

1. Park on a level surface, set the parking brake firmly and shift an automatic transmission into PARK (P).

2. Tilt the driverís seat forward and press the storage compartment release button, or use the manual release cable if battery power has been lost.

3.Pull the top up by firmly gripping the front edge (A) of the convertible top with your hand and applying a brisk firm upward and forward motion to get the top in the full-up position.

4.Lift the rear edge (B) of the convertible top to its full-up position by first raising the front edge (A).

5.Close the storage compartment lid (C) by closing with a swift, firm motion.

6.Lower the rear edge (B) of the convertible top by first slightly pushing the front edge (A) of the convertible top forward.
