the indicator will start blinking for a short time and then stay on; however, this is 
normal and is no cause for concern.

If the Battery Is Dead

Securely attach the jumper cables clips so that they 
do not come off when the engine vibrates. Also be 
careful not to tangle the jumper cables or allow the 
cable ends to touch each other while attaching or 
detaching the jumper cables.

Battery performance degrades in cold conditions and 
may prevent the engine from starting.

WARNING

A battery can explode if you do not follow 
the correct procedure, seriously injuring 
anyone nearby.

Keep all sparks, open flames, and smoking 
materials away from the battery.

If there is no coolant in the reserve tank, 
check that the radiator is cool. Cover the 
radiator cap with a heavy cloth and open 
the cap. If necessary, add coolant up to 
the base of the filler neck, and put the 
cap back on.

Last thing to do

Once the engine has cooled sufficiently, restart it and check the temperature gauge. 
If the temperature gauge needle has gone down, resume driving. If it has not gone 
down, contact a dealer for repairs.

How to Handle Overheating

If the coolant is leaking, contact a dealer for repairs.

Use water as an emergency/temporary measure only. 
Have a dealer flush the system with proper antifreeze 
as soon as possible.

WARNING

Removing the radiator cap while the 
engine is hot can cause the coolant to spray 
out, seriously scalding you.
