Power Windows

Power Windows

The windows can be opened/closed
by operating the power window
switches.

WARNING

Make sure the opening is clear before
closing a window:

Closing a power window is dangerous.
A person's hands, head, or even neck
could be caught by the window and
result in serious injury or even death.
This warning applies especially to
children.

Never allow children to play with
power window switches:

Power window switches that are not
locked with the power window lock
switch would allow children to operate
power windows unintentionally, which
could result in serious injury if a child's
hands, head or neck becomes caught
by the window.

Make sure nothing blocks the window
just before it reaches the fully closed
position or while fully holding up the
power window switch:

Blocking the power window just before
it reaches the fully closed position or
while fully holding up the power
window switch is dangerous.
In this case, the jam-safe function may
not prevent the window from closing
all the way. If fingers are caught,
serious injuries could occur.

Do not let a child put a hand or head
out of the window while driving the
vehicle:

If the person's hand or head hits
something outside the vehicle, or
sudden braking is applied, it could
result in serious injury or death.

NOTE

When driving with only 1 of the rear
windows open, your ears might
experience a resonating sound.
However, this does not indicate a
problem. The sound can be reduced
by slightly opening a front window or
by changing the size of the rear
window opening.

Opening/Closing Windows

The window opens while the switch is
pressed and it closes while the switch
is pulled up with the ignition switched
ON. Do not open or close 3 or more
