Operating tips

WARNING

Before driving the vehicle, return the seatback to an upright seating position after manually releasing it. Also, make sure the seat is locked in place. Failure to do so may cause the seat to move in a collision or sudden stop. This may result in damage to the seat or personal injury.

CAUTION

● Do not operate the power recline switch when the seatback has been manually released using the upper seatback release lever 1 . Doing so can damage the seat.
● Do not pull on the upper seatback release lever or the trim to return the seatback to a normal seating position. Doing so may damage the seat.

● The power seat motor has an auto-reset overload protection circuit. If the motor stops during operation, wait 30 seconds, then reactivate the switch.
● Do not operate the power seat switch for a long period of time when the engine is off. This will discharge the battery.
● Pull up on the upper seatback release lever to release the seatback only. Push the seatback forward to allow for access to items behind the front seat. Push the seatback to the rear of the vehicle to return the seatback to the upright and locked position. The upper seatback release lever does not need to be used.

The reclining feature allows adjustment of the seatback for occupants of different sizes for added comfort and to help obtain proper seat belt fit (see “Precautions on seat belt usage” later in this section). Also, the seatback can be reclined to allow occupants to rest when the vehicle is stopped and the transmission is in P (Park) or N (Neutral) position with the parking brake fully applied.
