    Scheduled Maintenance and
    Mechanical Repairs

    Parking aid

    One of the best ways for you to make sure
    that your vehicle provides years of service
    is to have it maintained in line with our
    recommendations using parts that
    conform to the specifications detailed in
    this Owner’s Manual. Genuine Ford and
    Motorcraft parts meet or exceed these
    specifications.

    We hope that you never experience a
    collision, but accidents do happen. Genuine
    Ford replacement collision parts meet our
    stringent requirements for fit, finish,
    structural integrity, corrosion protection
    and dent resistance. During vehicle
    development we validate these parts
    deliver the intended level of protection as
    a whole system. A great way to know for
    sure you are getting this level of protection
    is to use genuine Ford replacement

    EQUIPMENT

    Your vehicle has been built to the highest
    standards using quality parts. We
    recommend that you demand the use of
    genuine Ford and Motorcraft parts
    whenever your vehicle requires scheduled
    maintenance or repair. You can clearly
    identify genuine Ford and Motorcraft parts
    by looking for the Ford, FoMoCo or
    Motorcraft branding on the parts or their
    packaging.

    Using mobile communications equipment
    is becoming increasingly important in the
    conduct of business and personal affairs.
    However, you must not compromise your
    own or others’ safety when using such
    equipment. Mobile communications can
    enhance personal safety and security when

    Child Safety
    INSTALLING CHILD SEATS

    WARNINGS
    If your vehicle has been involved in a
    crash, have the child seats checked
    by an authorized dealer.
    Note: Mandatory use of child seats varies
    from country to country.
    Only child seats certified to ECE-R44.03
    (or later) have been tested and approved
    for use in your vehicle. A choice of these
    are available from an authorized dealer.

    Child Seats for Different Mass
    Groups
    Use the correct child seat as follows:
    Baby Safety Seat

    WARNINGS
    Use an approved child seat to secure
    children less than 59 inches (150
    centimeters) tall in the rear seat.
    Extreme Hazard! Do not use a
    rearward facing child seat on a seat
    protected by an air bag in front of it!

    Secure children that weigh less than 29
    pounds (13 kilograms) in a rearward facing
    baby safety seat (Group 0+) on the rear
    seat.

    Read and follow the manufacturer’s

    Child Safety
    Child Safety Seat

    Booster Seat (Group 2)

    Secure children that weigh between 29
    and 40 pounds (13 and 18 kilograms) in a
    child safety seat (Group 1) on the rear seat.

    Secure children that weigh more than 33
    pounds (15 kilograms) but are less than 59
    inches (150 centimeters) tall in a booster
    seat or a booster cushion.

    Booster Seats

    We recommend that you use a booster
    seat that combines a cushion with a
    backrest instead of a booster cushion only.
    The raised seating position will allow you
    to position the shoulder strap of the adult
    safety belt over the center of your child’s
    shoulder and the lap strap tightly across
    their hips.

    WARNINGS
    Do not install a booster seat or a
    booster cushion with only the lap
    strap of the safety belt.
    Do not install a booster seat or a
    booster cushion with a safety belt
    that is slack or twisted.

    Booster Cushion (Group 3)

    Do not put the safety belt under your
    child’s arm or behind their back.
    Do not use pillows, books or towels
    to boost your child’s height.
    Make sure that your children sit in an
    upright position.
    Note: When using a child seat on a rear
    seat, make sure that the child seat rests
    tightly against the vehicle seat. It may be
    necessary to lift or remove the head
    restraint. See Head Restraints (page 82).

    ISOFIX Anchor Points

    Attaching a Child Seat with Top
    Tethers

    WARNING

    WARNINGS
    Do not attach a tether strap to
    anything other than the correct
    tether anchor point.

    Use an anti-rotation device when
    using the ISOFIX system. We
    recommend the use of a top tether
    or support leg.

    Make sure that the top tether strap
    is not slack or twisted and is properly
    located on the anchor point.

    Note: When you are purchasing an ISOFIX
    seat, make sure that you know the correct
    mass group and ISOFIX size class for the
    intended seating locations. See Child Seat
    Positioning (page 18).

    Note: Where applicable, remove the
    luggage cover to ease installation. See
    Luggage Covers (page 121).

    Your vehicle has ISOFIX anchor points that
    accommodate universally approved
    ISOFIX child seats.

    Note: You may need to raise or remove the
    head restraint to ease installation. See
    Head Restraints (page 82).

    The ISOFIX system comprises two rigid
    attachment arms on the child seat that
    attach to anchor points on the outboard
    rear seats, where the cushion and backrest
    meet. Tether anchor points are located
    behind the outboard rear seats for child
    seats with a top tether.

    1.

    Route the tether strap under the head
    restraint to the anchor point.

    Top Tether Anchor Points

    2. Push the child seat back firmly to
    engage the ISOFIX lower anchor points.
    3. Tighten the tether strap in line with the
    child seat manufacturer's instructions.

    WARNINGS
    The child seat must rest tightly
    against the vehicle seat. It may be
    necessary to lift or remove the head
    restraint. See Head Restraints (page 82).

    WARNINGS
    See an authorized dealer for the
    latest details relating to our
    recommended child seats.

    Note: When using a child seat on a front
    seat, always adjust the front passenger's
    seat to its fully rearward position. If it proves
    difficult to tighten the lap section of the
    safety belt without slack remaining, adjust
    the seatback to the fully upright position
    and raise the height of the seat. See Seats
    (page 82).

    Extreme Hazard! Do not use a
    rearward facing child seat on a seat
    protected by an air bag in front of it!
    When using a child seat with a
    support leg, the support leg must
    rest securely on the floor.

    Supplementary Restraints System
    Note: You will hear a loud bang and see a
    cloud of harmless powdery residue if an
    airbag deploys. This is normal.

    PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION
    WARNINGS
    Extreme Hazard! Never use a
    rearward facing child restraint on a
    seat protected by an active airbag in
    front of it. Death or serious injury to the
    child can occur.

    Note: Only wipe airbag covers with a damp
    cloth.

    DRIVER AIRBAG

    Do not modify the front of your
    vehicle in any way. This could
    adversely affect deployment of the
    airbags. Failure to adhere to this warning
    could result in serious personal injury or
    death.
    Wear a safety belt and keep
    sufficient distance between yourself
    and the steering wheel. Only when
    you use the safety belt correctly, can it hold
    you in a position that allows the airbag to
    achieve its optimum effect. See Sitting
    in the Correct Position (page 82). Failure
    to adhere to this warning could result in
    serious personal injury or death.

    The airbag will deploy during significant
    frontal collisions or collisions that are up
    to 30 degrees from the left or the right. The
    airbag will inflate within a few thousandths
    of a second and deflate on contact with
    the occupant, thus cushioning forward
    body movement. During minor frontal
    collisions, overturns, rear collisions and
    side collisions, the airbag will not deploy.

    Repairs to the steering wheel,
    steering column, seats, airbags and
    safety belts must be carried out by
    an authorized dealer. Failure to adhere to
    this warning could result in serious
    personal injury or death.
    Keep the areas in front of the airbags
    free from obstruction. Do not affix
    anything to or over the airbag covers.
    In the event of a crash, hard objects could
    cause serious personal injury or death.
    Do not puncture the seat with sharp
    objects. This could damage and
    adversely affect deployment of the
    airbags. Failure to adhere to this warning
    could result in serious personal injury or
    death.
    Use seat covers designed for seats
    with side airbags. Have these fitted
    by an authorized dealer. Failure to
    adhere to this warning could result in
    serious personal injury or death.

    SIDE AIRBAGS
    WARNING

    Note: The airbag has a lower deployment
    threshold than the front airbags. During a
    minor collision, it is possible that only the
    knee airbag will deploy.

    Use seat covers designed for seats
    with side airbags. Have these fitted
    by an authorized dealer.

    SIDE CURTAIN AIRBAGS

    The airbags are located inside the
    seatback of the front seats. There is a label
    attached to the side of the seatback to
    indicate this.

    The airbags are located over the front and
    rear side windows.
    The airbag will deploy during significant
    lateral collisions. It will also deploy during
    significant frontal angled collisions. The
    curtain airbag will not deploy in minor
    lateral and frontal collisions, rear collisions,
    or overturns.

    The airbag will deploy during significant

    WARNING
    Do not attempt to open the airbag
    cover.
    The airbag will deploy during frontal
    collisions or collisions that are up to 30
    degrees from the left or the right. The
    airbag will inflate within a few thousandths

    between the driver’s knees and the steering
    column. During overturns, rear collisions
    and side collisions, the knee airbag will not
    deploy.

    GENERAL INFORMATION ON
    RADIO FREQUENCIES

    REMOTE CONTROL
    You can program a maximum of eight
    remote controls to your vehicle. This
    includes any that were supplied with your
    vehicle. The remote controls must remain
    inside your vehicle during the programming
    procedure. Fasten the front safety belts
    and close all doors to make sure that
    conflicting chimes do not sound during
    programming.

    Note: Changes or modifications not
    expressly approved by the party responsible
    for compliance could void the user’s
    authority to operate the equipment.
    The typical operating range for your
    transmitter is approximately 33 ft (10 m).
    A decrease in operating range could be
    caused by:
    • weather conditions
    • nearby radio towers
    • structures around your vehicle
    • other vehicles parked next to your
    vehicle.

    MyKey™
    Optional Settings

    PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION

    You can configure MyKey settings when
    you first create a MyKey. You can also
    change the settings afterward with an
    admin key.

    The system allows you to program keys
    with restricted driving modes to promote
    good driving habits. You can use all but one
    of the keys programmed to your vehicle
    with these restricted modes.

    The following settings can be configured
    using an admin key:
    • Various vehicle speed limits can be set.
    Warnings will be shown in the display
    followed by an audible tone when your
    vehicle reaches the set speed. You
    cannot override the set speed by fully
    depressing the accelerator pedal.
    • Various vehicle speed reminders can
    be set. Warnings will be shown in the
    display followed by an audible tone
    when the set vehicle speed is
    exceeded.
    • Audio system maximum volume of
    45%. A message will be shown in the
    display when you attempt to exceed
    the limited volume. Automatic volume
    control will be disabled.
    • Always on setting. When this is
    selected you will not be able to disable
    emergency assistance or the do not
    disturb feature.

    Any keys that have not been programmed
    are referred to as an administrator key or
    admin key. These can be used to:
    • create a MyKey
    • program optional MyKey settings
    • clear all MyKey features.
    When you have programmed a MyKey, you
    can access the following information using
    the information display:
    • How many admin keys and MyKeys are
    programmed to your vehicle.
    • The total distance your vehicle has
    traveled using a MyKey.
    Note: Switch the ignition on to use the
    system.
    Note: All MyKeys are programmed to the
    same settings. You cannot program them
    individually.

    Standard Settings

    Vehicles with Keyless Entry

    The following settings cannot be changed:
    • Safety belt minder. You cannot disable
    this feature. The audio system will
    mute when this feature is activated.
    • Low fuel level warning. When the fuel
    level is low, warnings will be shown in
    the display followed by an audible
    tone.
    • Driver assist features, for example
    navigation and parking aids. These
    systems turn on automatically
    whenever you switch the ignition on.

    If a MyKey and an admin key are present,
    your vehicle will recognize the admin key
    only.

    key to clear all MyKeys. If the distance does
    not accumulate as expected, then the
    intended user is not using the MyKey, or an
    admin key user recently cleared and then
    recreated a MyKey.

    MANUAL LIFTGATE

    To Open the Liftgate

    WARNINGS
    It is extremely dangerous to ride in a
    cargo area, inside or outside of your
    vehicle. In a crash, people riding in
    these areas are more likely to be seriously
    injured or killed. Do not allow people to ride
    in any area of your vehicle that is not
    equipped with seats and safety belts. Make
    sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat
    and properly using a safety belt. Failure to
    follow this warning could result in serious
    personal injury or death.
    Make sure to close and latch the
    liftgate to prevent drawing exhaust
    fumes into your vehicle. This will also
    prevent passengers and cargo from falling
    out. If you must drive with the liftgate open,
    keep the vents or windows open so outside
    air comes into your vehicle. Failure to
    follow this warning could result in serious
    personal injury.

    Press the button located in the top of the
    liftgate pull cup handle to unlatch the
    liftgate, then pull on the outside handle.
    Opening With the Remote Control
    Press the button twice within
    three seconds.
    To Close the Liftgate

    Note: Be careful when opening or closing
    the liftgate in a garage or other enclosed
    area to avoid damaging the liftgate.
    Note: Do not hang anything, for example a
    bike rack, from the glass or liftgate. This
    could damage the liftgate and its
    components.
    Note: Do not leave the liftgate open when
    driving. This could damage the liftgate and
    its components.

    A recessed grip is located inside the liftgate
    to help with closing.

    Passive Key

    KEYLESS ENTRY

    Your vehicle can be locked and unlocked
    with the passive key. You can use the
    passive key as a remote control. See
    Locking and Unlocking (page 34).

    General Information
    WARNING
    The system may not function if the
    key is close to metal objects or
    electronic devices such as cell
    phones.

    Locking Your Vehicle

    The system will not function if:
    • Your vehicle battery has no charge.
    • The passive key frequencies are
    jammed.
    • The passive key battery is flat.
    Note: If the system does not function, you
    will need to use the key blade to lock and
    unlock your vehicle.
    WARNING

    The system allows you to operate your
    vehicle without the use of a key or remote
    control.

    Your vehicle does not lock itself
    automatically. If you do not press a
    locking button your vehicle will
    remain unlocked.
    Locking buttons are located on each of the
    front doors.
    For central locking and to arm the alarm,
    press a locking button once.
    For double locking and to arm the alarm,
    press a locking button twice within three
    seconds.
    Note: When locking your vehicle, do not
    grip the door handle.

    Passive locking and unlocking requires a
    valid passive key to be located within one
    of the three external detection ranges.
    These are located approximately five feet
    (one and a half meters) from the front
    door handles and the liftgate.

    Note: Your vehicle will remain locked for
    approximately three seconds. When the
    delay period is over, you can open the doors
    again, provided the passive key is within the
    respective detection range.
    Two short flashes of the direction
    indicators confirms that all the doors and
    the liftgate have been locked and that the
    alarm has been armed.

    doors locked.

    Any keys left inside your vehicle interior
    when it is locked will be disabled.
    You cannot use a disabled key to switch
    the ignition on or start the engine.

    Note: If a second valid passive key is
    located within the liftgate detection range,
    the liftgate can be closed.

    You must enable all passive keys again in
    order to use them.
    To enable all your passive keys, unlock your
    vehicle using a passive key that has not
    been disabled or the remote control
    unlocking function.

    Unlocking Your Vehicle
    Note: When your vehicle remains locked
    for longer than three days, the system will
    enter an energy-saving mode. This is to
    prevent your vehicle battery running out of
    charge. When your vehicle is unlocked while
    in this mode, the reaction time of the system
    may be a little longer than normal. To exit
    the energy-saving mode, unlock your
    vehicle.

    All passive keys will then be enabled if you
    switch the ignition on or you start your
    vehicle with a valid key.

    Locking and Unlocking the Doors
    with the Key Blade

    Note: A valid passive key must be located
    within the detection range of that door.
    One long flash of the direction indicators
    confirms that all the doors and the liftgate
    have been unlocked and that the alarm
    has been disarmed.
    Unlocking Only the Driver's Door
    If the unlocking function is reprogrammed
    so that only the driver’s door and the
    liftgate are unlocked. See Remote
    Control (page 26). Note the following:

    PASSIVE ANTI-THEFT
    SYSTEM
    Principle of Operation
    The system prevents someone from
    starting the engine with an incorrectly
    coded key.

    Perimeter alarm.
    Perimeter alarm with interior sensors.
    Category one alarm with interior
    sensors and battery back-up sounder.

    Perimeter Alarm
    The perimeter alarm is a deterrent against
    unauthorized access to your vehicle
    through the doors and the hood. It also
    protects the audio unit.

    Coded Keys
    If you lose a key, you can obtain a
    replacement from an authorized dealer. If
    possible, provide them with the key
    number from the tag provided with the
    original keys. You can also obtain extra
    keys from an authorized dealer.

    Interior Sensors

    Note: Have all of your remaining keys
    erased and recoded if you lose a key. Have
    replacement keys coded together with
    recoding your remaining keys. See an
    authorized dealer for further information.
    WARNINGS
    Do not cover up the interior lamp unit
    sensors.

    Note: Do not shield your keys with metal
    objects. This may prevent the receiver from
    recognizing a coded key.

    Do not arm the alarm with full guard
    if passengers, animals or other
    moving objects are inside your
    vehicle.

    Arming the Engine Immobilizer
    When you switch the ignition off the engine
    immobilizer will arm automatically after a
    short time.

    The sensors act as a deterrent against
    unauthorized intrusion by sensing any
    movement within your vehicle.

    Disarming the Engine Immobilizer
    When you switch the ignition on the engine
    immobilizer will disarm automatically if a
    correctly coded key is used.

    Battery Back-up Sounder
    The battery back-up sounder is an extra
    alarm system which will sound a siren
    when the alarm is triggered. When you lock
    your vehicle the system is armed. The
    sounder has its own battery and will sound
    an alarm siren even if someone
    disconnects your vehicle battery or the
    battery back-up sounder itself.

    If you are unable to start the engine with a
    correctly coded key, have your vehicle
    checked by an authorized dealer.

    or the hood without a valid key or
    remote control.
    If someone removes the audio or
    navigation system.
    If you switch the ignition on without a
    valid key.
    If the interior sensors detect movement
    within your vehicle.
    On vehicles with a battery back-up
    sounder, if someone disconnects your
    vehicle battery or the battery back-up
    sounder itself.

    If you select Ask on Exit, the message
    Reduced guard? appears in the

    alarm permanently to reduced guard. It sets
    it to reduced guard only for the current
    ignition cycle. If you regularly set the alarm
    to reduced guard, select Ask on Exit.

    Any further attempts to perform one of the
    above will trigger the alarm again.

    GENERAL INFORMATION

    LIGHTING CONTROL

    Condensation in Lamp Assemblies

    Lighting Control Positions

    Exterior lamps have vents to
    accommodate normal changes in air
    pressure.
    Condensation can be a natural by-product
    of this design. When moist air enters the
    lamp assembly through the vents, there is
    a possibility that condensation can occur
    when the temperature is cold. When
    normal condensation occurs, a fine mist
    can form on the interior of the lens. The
    fine mist eventually clears and exits
    through the vents during normal operation.
    Clearing time may take as long as 48 hours
    under dry weather conditions.

    A

    Off

    Examples of acceptable condensation are:
    • The presence of a fine mist (no streaks,
    drip marks or large droplets).
    • A fine mist covers less than 50% of the
    lens.

    B

    Parking lamps, instrument panel
    lamps, license plate lamps and
    tail lamps

    C

    Headlamps

    Parking Lamps

    Examples of unacceptable condensation
    are:
    • A water puddle inside the lamp.
    • Streaks, drip marks or large droplets
    present on the interior of the lens.

    Note: Prolonged use of the parking lamps
    will cause the battery to run out of charge.
    Switch the ignition off.
    Turn the lighting control to position B.

    If you see any unacceptable condensation,
    have your vehicle checked by an authorized
    dealer.

    High Beams

    Pull the lever fully toward you to switch
    the high beams on.

    Push the lever forward to switch the high
    beams off.

    Note: If you have autolamps and
    autowipers switched on the low beam
    headlamps will turn on automatically when
    the windshield wipers operate continuously.

    Headlamp Flasher
    Pull the lever toward you slightly and
    release it to flash the headlamps.

    Note: You may have to manually switch
    the headlamps on in severe weather
    conditions.

    you can only switch the high beam
    headlamps on once the system has turned
    the headlamps on.

    INSTRUMENT LIGHTING
    DIMMER

    The headlamps will switch on and off
    automatically in low light situations or
    during inclement weather.
    The headlamps will remain on for a period
    of time after you switch the ignition off.
    Use the information display controls to
    adjust the period of time that the
    headlamps will remain on. See
    Information Displays (page 62).
    When the headlamp switch is in the
    Autolamps position, the windshield wiper
    activated exterior lamps will turn on within
    10 seconds when you switch the
    windshield wipers on. The exterior lamps
    will turn off after a short period of time
    when you switch the windshield wipers off.

    Press it repeatedly or press it and hold it
    until the desired level is reached.
    Note: If you disconnect the battery or it
    loses charge the instrument lighting will
    return to its brightest setting.

    This feature does not turn on the exterior
    lamps:
    • During a single wipe.
    • While the wipers are on to clear washer
    fluid during a wash condition.
    • If the wipers are in automatic or
    intermittent modes.

    Climate Control
    Air Conditioning

    PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION

    The system directs air through the
    evaporator for cooling. The evaporator
    extracts humidity from the air to help keep
    the windows free of mist. The system
    directs the resulting condensation to the
    outside of your vehicle, which may cause
    a small pool to form under your vehicle.
    This is normal.

    Outside Air
    Keep the air intakes in front of the
    windshield free from obstruction (such as
    snow or leaves) to allow the climate
    control system to function effectively.

    Recirculated Air

    Note: The air conditioning operates only
    when the temperature is above 39°F (4°C).

    WARNING
    Prolonged use of recirculated air may
    cause the windows to mist up. If the
    windows mist up, follow the settings
    for demisting the windshield.

    Note: When you use air conditioning, your
    vehicle uses more fuel.

    AIR VENTS

    The air currently in the passenger
    compartment recirculates. Outside air does
    not enter your vehicle.

    Center Air Vents

    Heating
    Heating performance depends on the
    temperature of the engine coolant.

    General Information on Controlling
    the Interior Climate
    Fully close all the windows.
    Warming the Interior
    Direct the air toward your feet. In cold or
    humid weather conditions, direct some of
    the air toward the windshield and the door
    windows.
    Cooling the Interior
    Direct the air toward your face.

    Temperature Control

    Note: Do not place objects under the front
    seats as this may interfere with the airflow
    to the rear seats.
    Note: Remove any snow, ice or leaves from
    the air intake area at the base of the
    windshield.
    Manual Climate Control
    Note: To reduce fogging of the windshield
    during humid weather, adjust the air
    distribution control to the windshield air
    vents position. Increase the temperature
    and fan speed to improve clearing, if
    required.
    Automatic Climate Control

    You can set the temperature between 61°F
    (16°C) and 82°F (28°C) in steps of 1°F
    (0.5°C). In position low, the system will
    switch to permanent cooling. In position
    high, the system will switch to permanent
    heating.

    Note: Do not adjust the settings when your
    vehicle interior is extremely hot or cold. The
    system automatically adjusts to the
    previously stored settings. For the system
    to function efficiently, the instrument panel
    and side air vents should be fully open.

    Note: If you select either position low or
    high, the system will not regulate a stable
    temperature.

    Note: At low ambient temperatures with
    AUTO selected, the air stream is directed
    toward the windshield and side windows
    for as long as the engine remains cold.

    HINTS ON CONTROLLING THE
    INTERIOR CLIMATE

    Note: When the system is switched off,
    outside air is prevented from entering your
    vehicle.

    General Hints

    Note: When the system is in AUTO mode
    and the interior and exterior temperatures
    are high, the system automatically selects
    recirculated air to maximize cooling of the
    interior. When the selected air temperature
    is reached, the system automatically selects
    outside air.

    Note: Prolonged use of recirculated air may
    cause the windows to fog up.
    Note: A small amount of air may be felt
    from the footwell air vents regardless of the
    air distribution setting.

    Note: When you select windshield
    defrosting and defogging, the instrument
    panel and footwell level functions
    automatically switch off and air conditioning
    switches on. Outside air flows into your
    vehicle.

    Note: To reduce humidity build-up inside
    your vehicle, do not drive with the system
    switched off or with recirculated air always
    switched on.

    Seats


    SITTING IN THE CORRECT
    POSITION
    WARNINGS
    Do not recline the seat backrest too
    far as this can cause the occupant
    to slide under the safety belt,
    resulting in serious injury in the event of a
    crash.



    Sitting improperly, out of position or
    with the seat backrest reclined too
    far, can result in serious injury or
    death in the event of a crash. Always sit
    upright against your seat backrest, with
    your feet on the floor.





    Do not place objects higher than the
    seat backrest to reduce the risk of
    serious injury in the event of a crash
    or during heavy braking.

    Adjust the head restraint so that the
    top of it is level with the top of your
    head and as far forward as possible.
    Make sure that you remain
    comfortable.
    Keep sufficient distance between
    yourself and the steering wheel. We
    recommend a minimum of 10 inches
    (25 centimeters) between your
    breastbone and the airbag cover.
    Hold the steering wheel with your arms
    slightly bent.
    Bend your legs slightly so that you can
    press the pedals fully.
    Position the shoulder strap of the
    safety belt over the center of your
    shoulder and position the lap strap
    tightly across your hips.

    Make sure that your driving position is
    comfortable and that you can maintain full
    control of your vehicle.

    HEAD RESTRAINTS
    WARNING
    Fully adjust the head restraint before
    you sit in or operate your vehicle. This
    will help minimize the risk of neck
    injury in the event of a collision. Do not
    adjust the head restraint when your vehicle
    is moving.

    Adjusting the Head Restraints
    When you use them properly, the seat,
    head restraint, safety belt and airbags will
    provide optimum protection in the event
    of a crash.

    Adjust the head restraint so that the top
    of it is level with the top of your head.

    We recommend that you follow these
    guidelines:
    • Sit in an upright position with the base
    of your spine as far back as possible.
    • Do not recline the seat backrest more
    than 30 degrees.

    HEATED SEATS

    FRONT SEAT ARMREST

    WARNING
    People who are unable to feel pain
    to their skin because of advanced
    age, chronic illness, diabetes, spinal
    cord injury, medication, alcohol use,
    exhaustion or other physical conditions,
    must exercise care when using the heated
    seat. The heated seat may cause burns
    even at low temperatures, especially if
    used for long periods of time. Do not place
    anything on the seat that insulates against
    heat, such as a blanket or cushion. This
    may cause the heated seat to overheat.
    Do not puncture the seat with pins, needles
    or other pointed objects. This may damage
    the heating element which may cause the
    heated seat to overheat. An overheated
    seat may cause serious personal injury.
    Do not do the following:
    • Place heavy objects on the seat.
    • Operate the heated seat if water or any
    other liquid is spilled on the seat. Allow
    the seat to dry thoroughly.
    • Operate the heated seats unless the
    engine is running. Doing so could drain
    your vehicle battery.
    For item location: See Climate Control
    (page 74).
    The heated seat will only operate with the
    ignition switched on.
    The maximum temperature is reached
    after five or six minutes. It is regulated
    thermostatically.

    Starting and Stopping the Engine
    GENERAL INFORMATION

    IGNITION SWITCH

    WARNINGS
    Extended idling at high engine
    speeds can produce very high
    temperatures in the engine and
    exhaust system, creating the risk of fire or
    other damage.
    Do not park, idle or drive your vehicle
    on dry grass or other dry ground
    cover. The emission system heats up
    the engine compartment and exhaust
    system, creating the risk of fire.

    0(off) - The ignition is off.
    Note: When you switch the ignition off and
    leave your vehicle, do not leave your key in
    the ignition. This could cause your vehicle
    battery to lose charge.

    Do not start the engine in a closed
    garage or in other enclosed areas.
    Exhaust fumes can be toxic. Always
    open the garage door before you start the
    engine.

    I (accessory) - Allows the electrical
    accessories such as the radio to operate
    while the engine is not running.

    If you smell exhaust fumes inside
    your vehicle, have your vehicle
    checked by an authorized dealer
    immediately. Do not drive your vehicle if
    you smell exhaust fumes.

    Note: Do not leave the ignition key in this
    position for too long to avoid your vehicle
    battery losing charge.
    II (on) - All electrical circuits operational.
    Warning lamps and indicators are
    illuminated.

    If you disconnect the battery, your vehicle
    may exhibit some unusual driving
    characteristics for approximately 5 miles
    (8 kilometers) after you reconnect it. This
    is because the engine management system
    must realign itself with the engine. You can
    disregard any unusual driving
    characteristics during this period.

    III (start) - cranks the engine. Release the
    key as soon as the engine starts.

    KEYLESS STARTING
    WARNINGS
    The system may not function if the
    key is close to metal objects or

    Starting and Stopping the Engine
    The diesel particulate filter on your vehicle
    requires periodic regeneration to maintain
    its correct function. Your vehicle will carry
    out this process automatically.

    Release the accelerator pedal. Wait until
    the engine has reached idle speed and then
    switch it off.

    If your journeys meet one of the following
    conditions:
    • You drive only short distances.
    • You frequently switch the ignition on
    and off.
    • Your journeys contain a high level of
    acceleration and deceleration.
    You must carry out occasional trips with
    the following conditions to assist the
    regeneration process:
    • Drive your vehicle in more favorable
    conditions, which you will find at higher
    vehicle speeds in normal driving, on a
    main road or freeway for a minimum
    of 20 minutes. This drive may include
    short stops that will not affect the
    regeneration process.
    • Avoid prolonged idling and always
    observe speed limits and road
    conditions.
    • Do not switch the ignition off.
    • Select a suitable gear to ideally
    maintain engine speed between 1500
    and 3000 RPM.

    SWITCHING OFF THE ENGINE
    Vehicles With a Turbocharger
    WARNING
    Do not switch the engine off when it
    is running at high speed. If you do, the
    turbocharger will continue running
    after the engine oil pressure has dropped
    to zero. This will lead to premature
    turbocharger bearing wear.

    Fuel and Refueling


    SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
    WARNINGS
    Do not overfill the fuel tank. The
    pressure in an overfilled tank may
    cause leakage and lead to fuel spray
    and fire.
    The fuel system may be under
    pressure. If you hear a hissing sound
    near the fuel filler door (Easy Fuel
    capless fuel system), do not refuel until
    the sound stops. Otherwise, fuel may spray
    out, which could cause serious personal
    injury.



    Automotive fuels can cause serious
    injury or death if misused or
    mishandled.



    Flow of fuel through a fuel pump
    nozzle can produce static electricity.
    This can cause a fire if you are filling
    an ungrounded fuel container.


    Fuel ethanol and gasoline may
    contain benzene, which is a
    cancer-causing agent.
    When refueling always shut the
    engine off and never allow sparks or
    open flames near the filler neck.
    Never smoke or use a cell phone while
    refueling. Fuel vapor is extremely
    hazardous under certain conditions. Avoid
    inhaling excess fumes.



    Observe the following guidelines when
    handling automotive fuel:




    Extinguish all smoking materials and
    any open flames before refueling your
    vehicle.
    Always turn off the vehicle before
    refueling.

    Automotive fuels can be harmful or
    fatal if swallowed. Fuel such as
    gasoline is highly toxic and if
    swallowed can cause death or
    permanent injury. If fuel is swallowed,
    call a physician immediately, even if no
    symptoms are immediately apparent.
    The toxic effects of fuel may not be
    visible for hours.
    Avoid inhaling fuel vapors. Inhaling too
    much fuel vapor of any kind can lead
    to eye and respiratory tract irritation.
    In severe cases, excessive or prolonged
    breathing of fuel vapor can cause
    serious illness and permanent injury.
    Avoid getting fuel liquid in your eyes. If
    fuel is splashed in the eyes, remove
    contact lenses (if worn), flush with
    water for 15 minutes and seek medical
    attention. Failure to seek proper
    medical attention could lead to
    permanent injury.
    Fuels can also be harmful if absorbed
    through the skin. If fuel is splashed on
    the skin, clothing or both, promptly
    remove contaminated clothing and
    wash skin thoroughly with soap and
    water. Repeated or prolonged skin
    contact with fuel liquid or vapor causes
    skin irritation.
    Be particularly careful if you are taking
    “Antabuse” or other forms of disulfiram
    for the treatment of alcoholism.
    Breathing gasoline vapors, or skin
    contact could cause an adverse
    reaction. In sensitive individuals, serious
    personal injury or sickness may result.
    If fuel is splashed on the skin, promptly
    wash skin thoroughly with soap and
    water. Consult a physician immediately
    if you experience an adverse reaction.

    Do not use leaded gasoline or
    gasoline with additives containing
    other metallic compounds (e.g.
    manganese-based). They could damage
    the emission system.

    Note: We do not recommend the use of
    additional additives or other engine
    treatments for normal vehicle use.
    Note: We do not recommend the use of
    additional additives to prevent fuel waxing.

    Note: We recommend that you use only
    high quality fuel.

    Long-Term Storage

    Note: We do not recommend the use of
    additional additives or other engine
    treatments for normal vehicle use.

    Most diesel fuels contain biodiesel. We
    recommend that you fill the fuel tank with
    fuel that does not contain biodiesel if you
    intend to store your vehicle for more than
    two months. Alternatively, we recommend
    that you seek advice from your dealer.

    Use minimum 95 octane unleaded
    gasoline that meets the specification
    defined by EN 228 or the equivalent
    national specification.

    RUNNING OUT OF FUEL

    Your vehicle is suitable for use with ethanol
    blends up to 10% (E5 and E10).

    Avoid running out of fuel because this
    situation may have an adverse effect on
    powertrain components.

    Long-Term Storage
    Most gasoline contains ethanol. We
    recommend that you fill the fuel tank with
    fuel that does not contain ethanol if you
    intend to store your vehicle for more than
    two months. Alternatively, we recommend
    that you seek advice from an authorized
    dealer.

    If you have run out of fuel:


    FUEL QUALITY - DIESEL


    WARNINGS
    Do not mix diesel with oil, gasoline
    or other liquids. This could cause a
    chemical reaction.

    You may need to cycle the ignition from
    off to on several times after refueling
    to allow the fuel system to pump the
    fuel from the tank to the engine. On
    restarting, cranking time will take a few
    seconds longer than normal. With
    keyless ignition, just start the engine.
    Crank time will be longer than usual.
    Normally, adding 1 gallon (4.6 liters) of
    fuel is enough to restart the engine. If
    your vehicle is out of fuel and on a
    steep grade, more fuel may be required.

    Do not add kerosene, paraffin or
    gasoline to diesel. This could cause
    damage to the fuel system.

    Refilling With a Portable Fuel
    Container

    1.

    Locate the plastic funnel in the glove
    box.
    2. Slowly insert the funnel into the
    capless fuel system.
    3. Fill your vehicle with fuel from the
    portable fuel container.
    4. When done, clean the funnel or
    properly dispose of it. Extra funnels can
    be purchased from your authorized
    dealer if you choose to dispose of the
    funnel.

    WARNINGS
    Do not insert the nozzle of portable
    fuel containers or aftermarket
    funnels into the capless fuel system.
    This could damage the fuel system and its
    seal, and may cause fuel to run onto the
    ground instead of filling the tank, which
    could result in serious personal injury.
    Do not try to pry open or push open
    the capless fuel system with foreign
    objects. This could damage the fuel
    system and its seal and cause injury to you
    or others.

    CATALYTIC CONVERTER
    WARNING
    Do not park or idle your vehicle over
    dry leaves, dry grass or other
    combustible materials. The exhaust
    will radiate a considerable amount of heat
    during use, and after you have switched
    the engine off. This is a potential fire
    hazard.

    When filling your vehicle's fuel tank from
    a portable fuel container, use the funnel
    included with your vehicle.
    Use the following guidelines to avoid
    electrostatic charge build-up when filling
    an ungrounded fuel container:





    Place approved fuel container on the
    ground.
    Do not fill a fuel container while it is in
    the vehicle (including the cargo area).
    Keep the fuel pump nozzle in contact
    with the fuel container while filling.
    Do not use a device that would hold
    the fuel pump handle in the fill position.

    Driving with a Catalytic Converter
    WARNINGS
    Avoid running out of fuel.
    Do not crank the engine for long
    periods.
    Do not run the engine when a spark
    plug lead is disconnected.
    Do not push-start or tow-start your
    vehicle. Use booster cables. See
    Jump Starting the Vehicle (page
    132).
    Do not switch the ignition off when
    driving.

    Fuel and Refueling
    REFUELING
    WARNINGS
    Do not attempt to start the engine if
    you have filled the fuel tank with the
    incorrect fuel. This could damage the
    engine. Have the system checked by an
    authorized dealer immediately.
    Do not use any kind of flames or heat
    near the fuel system. The fuel system
    is under pressure. There is a risk of
    injury if the fuel system is leaking.
    1.

    If you use a high pressure spray to
    wash your vehicle, only spray the fuel
    filler flap briefly from a distance not
    less than 8 inches (200 millimeters).

    Press the flap to open it. Open the flap
    fully until it engages.

    We recommend that you wait at
    least 10 seconds before removing the
    fuel pipe nozzle to allow any residual
    fuel to drain into the fuel tank.
    Stop refueling after the fuel nozzle
    stops the second time. Additional
    fuel will fill the expansion space in
    the fuel tank which could lead to fuel
    overflowing. Fuel spillage could be
    hazardous to other road users.
    Do not remove the nozzle from its
    fully inserted position during the
    entire refueling process.
    Note: It is not possible to fully open the
    sliding door when the fuel filler flap is open.

    Note: When you insert the correct size fuel
    nozzle, a spring loaded inhibitor will open.
    This helps to avoid filling up with the wrong
    fuel.

    Note: Your vehicle does not have a fuel filler
    cap.

    2. Insert the fuel nozzle up to and
    including the first notch on the nozzle
    A. Keep it resting on the cover of the
    fuel pipe opening.

    Fuel and Refueling
    FUEL CONSUMPTION
    We derive CO2 and fuel consumption
    figures in laboratory tests according to
    Regulation (EC) 715/2007 or CR (EC)
    692/2008 and subsequent amendments.
    They are intended as a comparison
    between makes and models of vehicles.
    They are not intended to represent the real
    world fuel consumption you may get from
    your vehicle.
    Real world fuel consumption is governed
    by many factors, for example driving style,
    high speed driving, stop-start driving, air
    conditioning usage, the accessories fitted,
    payload and towing.

    3. Hold the nozzle in position B during
    refilling. Holding the nozzle in position
    A may affect the flow of fuel and shut
    off the fuel nozzle before the fuel tank
    is full.

    The advertised capacity is the indicated
    capacity and the empty reserve combined.
    Indicated capacity is the difference in the
    amount of fuel in the fuel tank and when
    the fuel gauge indicates empty. Empty
    reserve is the amount of fuel in the fuel
    tank after the fuel gauge indicates empty.
    Note: The amount of fuel in the empty
    reserve varies and should not be relied upon
    to increase driving range. When refueling
    your vehicle after the fuel gauge indicates
    empty, you might not be able to refuel the
    full amount of the advertised capacity due
    to the empty reserve still present in the fuel
    tank.
    4. Operate the nozzle within the area
    shown.

    Filling the Fuel Tank
    For consistent results when refueling:



    Switch the ignition off.
    Allow no more than two automatic
    shut-offs when refueling.

    Results are most accurate when the
    refueling method is consistent.

    5. Slightly raise the fuel nozzle to remove
    it.

    Calculating Fuel Economy

    4. Subtract your initial odometer reading
    from the current odometer reading.
    5. Calculate fuel economy by dividing
    miles traveled by gallons used (For
    Metric: Multiply liters used by 100, then
    divide by kilometers traveled).

    Do not measure fuel economy during the
    first 1000 mi (1,600 km) of driving (this is
    the engine break-in period). A more
    accurate measurement is obtained after
    2500 mi (4,000 km). Also, fuel expense,
    frequency of fill ups or fuel gauge readings
    are not accurate ways to measure fuel
    economy.

    Keep a record for at least one month and
    record the type of driving (city or freeway).
    This provides an accurate estimate of your
    vehicle’s fuel economy under current
    driving conditions. Additionally, keeping
    records during summer and winter show
    how temperature impacts fuel economy.
    In general, your vehicle will use more fuel
    in cold temperatures.

    1.

    Fill the fuel tank completely and record
    the initial odometer reading.
    2. Each time you fill the fuel tank, record
    the amount of fuel added.
    3. After at least three fill ups, fill the fuel
    tank and record the current odometer
    reading.

    Transmission
    The system makes it easier to pull away
    when your vehicle is on a slope without the
    need to use the parking brake.
    When the system is active, your vehicle will
    remain stationary on the slope for two to
    three seconds after you release the brake
    pedal. This allows you time to move your
    foot from the brake to the accelerator
    pedal. The brakes are released
    automatically once the engine has
    developed sufficient drive to prevent your
    vehicle from rolling down the slope. This
    is an advantage when pulling away on a
    slope, (for example from a car park ramp,
    traffic lights or when reversing uphill into
    a parking space).

    Note: The lever is pink.
    4. Apply the brake pedal. Using a suitable
    tool rotate the lever forward while
    pulling the transmission selector lever
    out of the park position and into the
    neutral position.
    Note: See an authorized dealer as soon as
    possible if this procedure is used.

    The system will activate automatically on
    any slope which can result in significant
    vehicle rollback.

    Using Hill Start Assist
    1.

    Press the brake pedal to bring your
    vehicle to a complete standstill. Keep
    the brake pedal pressed.
    2. If the sensors detect that your vehicle
    is on a slope, the system will be
    activated automatically.
    3. When you remove your foot from the
    brake pedal, your vehicle will remain
    on the slope without rolling away for
    approximately two or three seconds.
    This hold time will automatically be
    extended if you are in the process of
    driving off.
    4. Drive off in the normal manner. The
    brakes will be released automatically.

    HILL START ASSIST
    WARNINGS
    The system does not replace the
    parking brake. When you leave your
    vehicle, always apply the parking
    brake and move the transmission selector
    lever into position P (Park).
    You must remain in your vehicle once
    you have activated the system.
    During all times, you are responsible
    for controlling your vehicle,
    supervising the system and
    intervening, if required.

    Switching the System On and Off
    Note: The system can only be switched on
    and off for manual transmissions.

    If the engine is revved excessively, or
    if a malfunction is detected, the
    system will be deactivated.

    Note: Once you have switched off the
    system, it will remain off until you switch it
    on again.

    Brakes
    GENERAL INFORMATION

    HINTS ON DRIVING WITH
    ANTI-LOCK BRAKES

    WARNING

    Note: When the system is operating, the
    brake pedal will pulse and may travel
    further. Maintain pressure on the brake
    pedal. You may also hear a noise from the
    system. This is normal.

    The system does not relieve you of
    your responsibility to drive with due
    care and attention.
    Note: Occasional brake noise is normal. If
    a metal-to-metal, continuous grinding or
    continuous squeal sound is present, the
    brake linings may be worn-out. If the vehicle
    has continuous vibration or shudder in the
    steering wheel while braking, have your
    vehicle checked by an authorized dealer.

    The anti-lock braking system will not
    eliminate the risks when:
    • You drive too closely to the vehicle in
    front of you.
    • Your vehicle is hydroplaning.
    • You take corners too fast.
    • The road surface is poor.

    Note: Brake dust may accumulate on the
    wheels, even under normal driving
    conditions. Some dust is inevitable as the
    brakes wear. See Cleaning the Alloy
    Wheels (page 164).

    PARKING BRAKE
    Vehicles With Automatic
    Transmission

    Wet brakes result in reduced braking
    efficiency. Gently press the brake pedal a
    few times when driving from a car wash or
    standing water to dry the brakes.

    WARNING
    Always set the parking brake fully
    and leave your vehicle with the
    transmission selector lever in
    position P.

    Emergency Brake Assist
    Emergency brake assist detects when you
    brake heavily by measuring the rate at
    which you press the brake pedal. It
    provides maximum braking efficiency as
    long as you press the pedal. Emergency
    brake assist can reduce stopping distances
    in critical situations.

    Note: If you park your vehicle on a hill and
    facing uphill move the transmission selector
    lever to position P and turn the steering
    wheel away from the curb.
    Note: If you park your vehicle on a hill and
    facing downhill move the transmission
    selector lever to position P and turn the
    steering wheel toward the curb.

    Anti-lock Brake System
    This system helps you maintain steering
    control and vehicle stability during
    emergency stops by keeping the brakes
    from locking.

    Vehicles With Manual
    Transmission
    WARNING
    Always set the parking brake fully.

    Stability Control
    PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION

    Stability Control Warning Lamp

    Electronic Stability Program

    While driving, it flashes when the system
    is operating. See Warning Lamps and
    Indicators (page 57).

    WARNING
    The system does not relieve you of
    your responsibility to drive with due
    care and attention. Failure to do so
    could result in loss of vehicle control,
    personal injury or death.

    USING STABILITY CONTROL
    Note: The system automatically switches
    on every time you switch the ignition on.
    You can switch the system on and off using
    the information display. See General
    Information (page 62).

    A

    Without ESP

    B

    With ESP

    The system supports stability when your
    vehicle starts to slide away from your
    intended path. The system performs this
    by braking individual wheels and reducing
    engine torque as required.
    The system also provides an enhanced
    traction control function by reducing
    engine torque if the wheels spin when you
    accelerate. This improves your ability to
    pull away on slippery roads or loose
    surfaces, and improves comfort by limiting
    wheel spin in hairpin bends.

    Parking Aids
    Note: The outer sensors may detect the
    side walls of a garage. If the distance
    between the outer sensors and the side wall
    remains constant for three seconds, the
    alert will turn off. As you continue the inner
    sensors will detect objects directly behind
    your vehicle.

    PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION
    WARNINGS
    The system does not relieve you of
    your responsibility to drive with due
    care and attention.
    If your vehicles has a non-Ford
    approved trailer tow module the
    system may not correctly detect
    objects.

    PARKING AID
    WARNINGS
    Sensing is only an aid to detect some
    objects when moving forward or
    backward at low speeds. Traffic
    control systems, inclement weather or an
    external motor and fan can affect the
    sensors; this may include reduced
    performance or false activation. To help
    avoid personal injury you must read and
    understand the limitations of the system
    detailed in this section.

    The sensors may not detect objects
    in heavy rain or other conditions that
    cause disruptive reflections.
    The sensors may not detect objects
    with surfaces that absorb ultrasonic
    waves.
    The system does not detect objects
    that are moving away from your
    vehicle. They will only be detected
    shortly after they start to move toward
    your vehicle.

    The parking aid system may not
    prevent contact with small or moving
    objects that are close to the ground.
    The parking aid system gives an audible
    warning when it detects a large object
    helping to avoid damage to your vehicle.
    To help avoid personal injury you must take
    care when using the parking aid system.

    Take particular care when reversing
    with a tow ball arm or a rear fitted
    accessory. For example, a bicycle
    carrier. The rear parking aid will only
    indicate the approximate distance from
    the rear bumper to an object.
    If you use a high pressure spray to
    wash your vehicle, only spray the
    sensors briefly from a distance not
    less than eight inches (20 centimeters).

    Note: Some add-on equipment can cause
    reduced performance or false activation.
    For example, large trailer hitches, bike or
    surfboard racks.

    Note: If your vehicle has a tow ball arm, the
    system is turned off automatically when
    trailer lamps (or lighting boards) are
    connected to the 13-pin socket through a
    Ford approved trailer tow module.

    Note: The parking aid system sensors must
    be kept clean and free from snow or ice to
    avoid reduced performance or false
    activation. Do not clean the sensors with
    sharp objects.

    Note: Keep the sensors free from dirt, ice
    or snow. Do not clean with sharp objects.

    Note: If the parking aid sensors are
    misaligned due to vehicle bumper damage
    it will cause reduced performance or false
    activation.

    Note: The system may emit false alerts if
    it detects a signal using the same frequency
    as the sensors or if your vehicle is fully
    loaded.

    Parking Aids
    The parking aid system gives an audible
    warning and reduces the radio volume
    when it detects a large object within a
    limited range of your vehicle’s bumpers.
    Note: When the parking aid system no
    longer detects a large object the radio
    volume will return to the previous level.

    Rear Sensing System
    The rear parking aid sensors turn on
    automatically when you move the
    transmission selector lever to R (reverse)
    and your vehicle is moving at a speed of
    less than 3 mph (5 km/h). Moving your
    vehicle closer to a large object will increase
    the audible warning repeat rate. When the
    object is less than 12 inches (30
    centimeters) from the center of your
    vehicle’s rear bumper the audible warning
    will sound continuously. If the object is
    more than 12 inches (30 centimeters) from
    the side of your vehicle’s rear bumper the
    audible warning will sound for three
    seconds. If the object is less than 12 inches
    (30 centimeters) from the side of your
    vehicle’s rear bumper the audible warning
    will sound continuously.

    A

    The rear parking aid sensor
    coverage area is up to 72 inches
    (183 centimeters) from the
    center of your vehicle’s rear
    bumper. There is a decreased
    coverage area at the outer
    corners.

    The system detects large objects when
    you move the transmission selector lever
    to R (reverse):
    • and your vehicle is moving toward the
    object at a speed of less than 3 mph
    (5 km/h)
    • and your vehicle is not moving but a
    moving object is approaching the rear
    of your vehicle at a speed of less than
    3 mph (5 km/h)
    • and your vehicle is moving at a speed
    of less than 3 mph (5 km/h) and a
    moving object is approaching the rear
    of your vehicle at a speed of less than
    3 mph (5 km/h).
    Move the transmission selector lever from
    R (reverse) or press the parking aid button
    to switch the system off. If a fault is
    present in the system, a warning message
    appears in the information display and
    does not allow you to switch the system
    on.

    Parking Aids
    Front and Rear Sensing System

    Audible warnings will sound when large
    objects are within the sensor coverage
    areas of either bumper in the following
    manner:
    • You will hear a high-pitched tone from
    the front audio system speakers when
    large objects are within the sensor
    coverage area of your vehicle’s front
    bumper. Moving your vehicle closer to
    a large object will increase the audible
    warning repeat rate.
    • You will hear a lower-pitched tone
    from the rear audio system speakers
    when large objects are within the
    sensor coverage area of your vehicle’s
    rear bumper. Moving your vehicle closer
    to a large object will increase the
    audible warning repeat rate.
    • The parking aid system prioritises
    audible warnings based on large
    objects that are the closest to your
    vehicle’s front or rear bumper. For
    example, if an object is 24 inches (60
    centimeters) from your vehicle’s front
    bumper and at the same time, an
    object is only 16 inches (40
    centimeters) from your vehicle’s rear
    bumper, you will hear the
    lower-pitched tone from the rear audio
    system speakers.
    • You will hear an alternating audible
    warning from the front and rear audio
    system speakers if large objects are
    less than 12 inches (30 centimeters)
    from your vehicle’s front and rear
    bumpers.
    • If the object is more than 12 inches (30
    centimeters) from the side of your
    vehicle’s bumper area the audible
    warning will sound for three seconds.
    If the object is less than 12 inches (30
    centimeters) from the side of your
    vehicle’s bumper area the audible
    warning will sound continuously.

    The front and rear parking aid sensors turn
    on automatically when you move the
    transmission selector lever to R (reverse),
    D (drive) or L (low) and your vehicle is
    moving at a speed of less than 7 mph (12
    km/h).

    A

    The front parking aid sensor
    coverage area is up to 31 inches
    (80 centimeters) from the
    center of your vehicle’s front
    bumper and up to 14 inches (35
    centimeters) to the side of your
    vehicle’s front bumper. The rear
    parking aid sensor coverage area
    is up to 72 inches (183
    centimeters) from the center of
    your vehicle’s rear bumper. There
    is a decreased coverage area at
    the outer corners.

    If the engine stops after the system
    has been switched on, the hazard
    warning flashers will turn on.
    The system may not function when
    driving around sharp curves.

    At all times you are responsible for
    controlling your vehicle, supervising
    the system and intervening if
    required.

    Note: Keep the windshield free from
    obstructions such as bird droppings, insects,
    snow or ice.

    Never look directly into the sensor
    with any type of object. There is a risk
    of eye injury.

    Note: Keep the hood free of ice and snow,
    otherwise the system may not function
    correctly.

    If the sensor becomes blocked the
    system may not function.

    A sensor is mounted behind the interior
    rear view mirror. It continuously monitors
    conditions to decide when to intervene.

    To achieve full system performance,
    you must bed the braking system in.
    See Breaking-In (page 129).

    The system is designed to help you reduce
    low speed collisions into the rear of

    value. The vehicle maximum permissible
    trailer nose weight may be lower.
    The stability of your vehicle to trailer
    combination is very much dependent on
    the quality of the trailer.

    The anti-lock braking system does
    not control the overrun brake on the
    trailer. This could result in the loss of
    vehicle control, serious personal injury or
    death.

    Towing a trailer changes the vehicle
    handling characteristics and increases
    stopping distances. Adapt your speed and
    driving behavior to the load of the trailer.

    When towing a trailer:



    Place loads as low as possible and
    central to the axle of your trailer. If you
    are towing with an unladen vehicle, the
    load in your trailer should be placed
    toward the nose, within the maximum
    nose load, as this gives the best
    stability. See Capacities and
    Specifications (page 180).
    The trailer nose weight (vertical weight
    on the tow ball), is essential for the
    driving stability of your vehicle and
    trailer.
    The vertical weight on the tow ball
    should be at least 4% of the trailer
    weight and not exceed the maximum
    permissable weight. See Capacities
    and Specifications (page 180).
    Reduce speed immediately if the trailer
    shows any sign of swaying.
    Use a low gear when descending a
    steep downhill gradient.

    The gross train weight stated on the
    vehicle identification plate applies for road
    gradients up to 12% and altitudes up to
    3281 feet (1000 meters) when towing a
    trailer. In mountainous regions the engine
    performance decreases due to lower air
    density with increasing altitude. In high
    altitude regions above 3281feet (1000
    metres), the stipulated maximum
    permitted gross train weight must be
    reduced by 10% for every extra 3281 feet
    (1000 metres).

    Obey country specific regulations for
    towing a trailer.
    Do not exceed 62 mph (100 km/h)
    even if a country allows higher speeds
    under certain conditions.

    DRIVING THROUGH WATER

    Tires

    WARNINGS
    Drive through water in an emergency
    only and not as part of normal
    driving.

    WARNING
    New tires need to be run-in for
    approximately 300 miles (500
    kilometers). During this time, you
    may experience different driving
    characteristics.

    Engine damage can occur if water
    enters the air filter.
    In an emergency, you can drive your vehicle
    through water to a maximum depth of 8
    inches (200 millimeters) and at a
    maximum speed of 6 mph (10 km/h). You
    must take extra care when driving through
    flowing water.

    Brakes and Clutch
    WARNING
    Avoid heavy use of the brakes and
    clutch if possible for the first 100
    miles (150 kilometers) in town and
    for the first 1000 miles (1500 kilometers)
    on freeways.

    When driving in water, maintain a low
    speed and do not stop your vehicle. After
    driving through water and as soon as it is
    safe to do so:
    • Depress the brake pedal lightly to
    check that the brakes are functioning
    correctly.
    • Check that the horn works.
    • Check that your vehicle's lamps are
    fully operational.
    • Check the power assistance
    of the steering system.

    Engine
    WARNING
    Avoid driving too fast during the first
    1000 miles (1500 kilometers). Vary
    your speed frequently and change
    up through the gears early. Do not labor
    the engine.
    Vehicles With a Diesel Engine

    FLOOR MATS

    During the first 2000 miles (3000
    kilometers), you may notice a ticking sound
    when your vehicle slows down. This is due
    to adjustments of your new diesel engine
    and is normal.

    WARNINGS
    Always use floor mats that are
    designed to fit the foot well of your
    vehicle. Only use floor mats that
    leave the pedal area unobstructed. Only
    use floor mats that are firmly secured to
    retention posts so that they cannot slip out
    of position and interfere with the pedals
    or impair safe operation of your vehicle in
    other ways.

    COLD WEATHER
    PRECAUTIONS
    The functional operation of some
    components and systems can be affected
    at temperatures below -13°F (-25°C).

    Driving Hints
    WARNINGS
    Pedals that cannot move freely can
    cause loss of vehicle control and
    increase the risk of serious personal
    injury.
    Always make sure that the floor
    mats are properly attached to the
    retention posts in the carpet that are
    supplied with your vehicle. Floor mats must
    be properly secured to both retention posts
    to make sure mats do not shift out of
    position.

    To install floor mats, position the floor mat
    so that the eyelet is over the retention post
    and press down to lock in.

    Never place floor mats or any other
    covering in the vehicle foot well that
    cannot be properly secured to
    prevent them from moving and interfering
    with the pedals or the ability to control the
    vehicle.

    To remove the floor mat, reverse the
    installation procedure.

    Never place floor mats or any other
    covering on top of already installed
    floor mats. Floor mats should always
    rest on top of vehicle carpeting surface and
    not another floor mat or other covering.
    Additional floor mats or any other covering
    will reduce the pedal clearance and
    potentially interfere with pedal operation.
    Check attachment of floor mats on
    a regular basis. Always properly
    reinstall and secure floor mats that
    have been removed for cleaning or
    replacement.
    Always make sure that objects
    cannot fall into the driver foot well
    while the vehicle is moving. Objects
    that are loose can become trapped under
    the pedals causing a loss of vehicle control.
    Failure to properly follow floor mat
    installation or attachment
    instructions can potentially cause
    interference with pedal operation causing
    a loss of vehicle control.

    Adding Oil

    Adding Engine Coolant

    WARNINGS
    Only add oil when the engine is cold.
    If the engine is hot, wait 10 minutes
    for the engine to cool down. Failure
    to take care may result in personal injury.

    WARNINGS
    Only add coolant when the engine is
    cold. If the engine is hot, wait 10
    minutes for the engine to cool down.
    Do not remove the filler cap when
    the engine is running.

    Do not remove the filler cap when
    the engine is running. Failure to take
    care may result in personal injury.

    Do not remove the filler cap when
    the engine is hot. Wait for the engine
    to cool down.

    1. Remove the filler cap.
    2. Add oil that meets Ford specifications.
    See Technical Specifications (page
    160).
    3. Replace the filler cap. Turn it until you
    feel a strong resistance.
    Note: Do not add oil further than the
    maximum mark. Oil levels above the
    maximum mark may cause engine damage.

    Undiluted coolant is flammable and
    may ignite if spilt on a hot exhaust.
    Note: In an emergency, you can add just
    water to the cooling system to reach a
    vehicle service station. Have the system
    checked by an authorized dealer as soon as
    possible.

    Note: Soak up any spillage with an
    absorbent cloth immediately.

    Note: Prolonged use of incorrect dilution
    of the coolant can cause engine damage
    from corrosion, overheating or freezing.

    ENGINE COOLANT CHECK

    Note: Do not add coolant further than the
    MAX mark.
    1.

    Remove the filler cap. Any pressure will
    escape slowly as you unscrew the cap.
    2. Add a 50/50 mixture of coolant and
    water using fluid that meets the Ford
    specifications. See Technical
    Specifications (page 160).
    3. Replace the filler cap. Turn it until you
    feel a strong resistance.

    WARNING
    Do not allow the fluid to touch your
    skin or eyes. If this happens, rinse the
    affected areas immediately with
    plenty of water and contact your physician.
    Note: Make sure that the level is between
    the MIN and the MAX marks.
    Note: Coolant expands when it is hot. The
    level may therefore extend beyond the MAX
    mark.
    If the level is at the MIN mark, add coolant
    immediately.

    Maintenance
    BRAKE AND CLUTCH FLUID
    CHECK
    WARNINGS
    Do not use any fluid other than the
    recommended brake fluid as this will
    reduce brake efficiency. Use of
    incorrect fluid could result in the loss of
    vehicle control, serious personal injury or
    death.
    Only use brake fluid from a sealed
    container. Contamination with dirt,
    water, petroleum products or other
    materials may result in brake system
    damage or failure. Failure to adhere to this
    warning could result in the loss of vehicle
    control, serious personal injury or death.

    See Technical Specifications (page 160).
    Note: The brake and the clutch systems are
    supplied from the same reservoir.

    Do not allow the fluid to touch your
    skin or eyes. This could cause serious
    personal injury. Rinse the affected
    areas immediately with plenty of water
    and consult a physician.

    WASHER FLUID CHECK
    Note: The reservoir supplies the front and
    rear washer systems.

    A fluid level between the MAX and
    MIN lines is within the normal
    operating range and there is no need
    to add fluid. A fluid level outside of the
    normal operating range could compromise
    the performance of the brake or clutch
    systems. Have your vehicle checked
    immediately.

    When adding fluid, use a mixture of washer
    fluid and water to help prevent freezing in
    cold weather and improve the cleaning
    capability. We recommend that you use
    only high quality washer fluid.
    For information on fluid dilution, refer to
    the product instructions.

    CHANGING THE 12V BATTERY
    WARNING
    For vehicles with Start-Stop the
    battery requirement is different. You
    must replace the battery with one of
    exactly the same specification.
    The battery is located in the engine
    compartment. See Maintenance (page
    143).

    Your engine has been designed to be used with Castrol and Ford Engine Oil, which gives
    a fuel economy benefit while maintaining the durability of your engine.
    Adding oil: If you are unable to find an oil that meets the specification defined by
    WSS-M2C913-C or WSS-M2C948-B (gasoline engines only), you must use SAE 5W-30
    that meets the specification defined by ACEA A5/B5.
    Using oils other than the one specified can result in longer engine cranking periods, reduced
    engine performance, reduced fuel economy and increased emission levels.
    Castrol engine oil recommended.

    Vehicle Care
    Note: Industrial-strength (heavy-duty)
    cleaners, or cleaning chemicals, may cause
    damage over a period of time.

    CLEANING THE EXTERIOR
    Note: If you use a car wash with a waxing
    cycle, make sure that you remove the wax
    from the windshield and the wiper blades.

    Body Paintwork Preservation

    Note: Prior to using a car wash facility
    check the suitability of it for your vehicle.

    WARNINGS
    Do not polish your vehicle in strong
    sunshine.

    Note: Some car washes use water at high
    pressure. Due to this, water droplets may
    enter inside your vehicle and could also
    damage certain parts of your vehicle.

    Do not allow polish to touch plastic
    surfaces. It could be difficult to
    remove.

    Note: Remove the aerial before using an
    automatic car wash.
    Note: Switch the heater blower off to
    prevent contamination of the fresh air filter.

    Do not apply polish to the windshield
    or rear window. This could cause the
    wipers to become noisy and they
    may not clear the window properly.

    We recommend that you wash your vehicle
    with a sponge and lukewarm water
    containing a car shampoo.

    We recommend that you wax the
    paintwork once or twice a year.

    Cleaning the Headlamps

    CLEANING THE INTERIOR

    Note: Do not scrape the headlamp lenses
    or use abrasives, alcoholic solvents or
    chemical solvents to clean them.

    Note: Do not allow air fresheners and hand
    sanitizers to spill on interior surfaces. If a
    spill occurs, wipe off immediately. Damage
    may not be covered by your warranty.

    Note: Do not wipe the headlamps when
    they are dry.

    Safety Belts

    Cleaning the Rear Window

    Note: Do not use abrasives, or chemical
    solvents to clean them.

    Note: Do not scrape the inside of the rear
    window or use abrasives or chemical
    solvents to clean it.

    Note: Do not allow moisture to penetrate
    the safety belt retractor mechanism.

    Use a clean, lint free cloth or a damp
    chamois leather to clean the inside of the
    rear window.

    Clean them with interior cleaner or water
    applied with a soft sponge. Let them dry
    naturally, away from artificial heat.

    Cleaning the Chrome Trim

    Instrument Cluster Screens, LCD
    Screens and Radio Screens

    Note: Do not use abrasives or chemical
    solvents. Use soapy water.

    Note: Do not use abrasives, alcoholic
    solvents or chemical solvents to clean them.

    Note: Do not apply cleaning product to hot
    surfaces and do not leave cleaning product
    on chrome surfaces for a period of time
    exceeding that which is recommended.

    Vehicle Care
    Rear Windows

    Note: Some automatic car washes may
    cause damage to the finish on your wheel
    rims and covers.

    Note: Do not use any abrasive materials to
    clean the interior of the rear windows.

    Alloy wheels and wheel covers are coated
    with a clear coat paint finish. To maintain
    their condition we recommend that you:
    • Clean them weekly with the
    recommended wheel and tire cleaner.
    • Use a sponge to remove heavy
    deposits of dirt and brake dust
    accumulation.
    • Rinse them thoroughly with a
    pressurized stream of water when you
    have completed the cleaning process.

    Note: Do not install stickers or labels to the
    interior of the rear windows.

    REPAIRING MINOR PAINT
    DAMAGE
    You should repair paintwork damage
    caused by stones from the road or minor
    scratches as soon as possible. A choice of
    products are available from an authorized
    dealer.

    We recommend that you use Ford service
    wheel cleaner. Make sure that you read
    and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

    Remove particles such as bird droppings,
    tree sap, insect deposits, tar spots, road
    salt and industrial fallout before repairing
    paint chips.

    Using other non-recommended cleaning
    products can result in severe and
    permanent cosmetic damage.

    Always read and follow the manufacturer’s
    instructions before using the products.

    CLEANING THE ALLOY
    WHEELS
    Note: Do not apply a cleaning chemical to
    warm or hot wheel rims and covers.
    Note: Industrial-strength (heavy-duty)
    cleaners, or cleaning chemicals, in
    combination with brush agitation to remove
    brake dust and dirt, could wear away the
    clear coat finish over a period of time.
    Note: Do not use hydrofluoric acid-based
    or high caustic-based wheel cleaners, steel
    wool, fuels or strong household detergent.
    Note: If you intend parking your vehicle for
    an extended period after cleaning the
    wheels with a wheel cleaner, drive your
    vehicle for a few minutes before doing so.
    This will reduce the risk of increased
    corrosion of the brake discs, brake pads and
    linings.

    Wheels and Tires
    GENERAL INFORMATION

    WARNINGS
    Do not use the kit on run flat tires.

    A decal with tire pressure data is located
    in the driver’s door opening.

    Do not try to seal damage to the
    tire’s sidewall.

    Check and set the tire pressure at the
    ambient temperature in which you are
    intending to drive your vehicle and when
    the tires are cold.

    The kit seals most tire punctures [with a
    diameter of up to ¼ inch (six millimeters)]
    to temporarily restore mobility.

    Note: Check your tire pressures regularly to
    optimize fuel economy.

    You must observe the following rules when
    using the kit:

    Note: Use only approved wheel and tire
    sizes. Using other sizes could damage your
    vehicle and will make the National Type
    Approval invalid.



    Note: If you change the diameter of the tires
    from that fitted at the factory, the
    speedometer may not display the correct
    speed. Take your vehicle to an authorized
    dealer to have the engine management
    system reprogrammed.



    Note: If you intend to change the size of the
    wheels from that fitted at the factory, check
    the suitability with an authorized dealer.




    TEMPORARY MOBILITY KIT



    Your vehicle may not have a spare tire.
    Therefore you will have a temporary
    mobility kit which will only repair one
    damaged tire.

    Drive with caution and avoid making
    sudden steering or driving manoeuvres,
    especially if your vehicle is heavily
    laden or you are towing a trailer.
    The kit will provide you with an
    emergency temporary repair, enabling
    you to continue your journey to the next
    vehicle or tire dealer, or to drive a
    maximum distance of 125 miles
    (200 kilometers).
    Do not exceed a maximum speed of
    50 mph (80 km/h).
    Keep the kit out of the reach of
    children.
    Only use the kit when the ambient
    temperature is between -40°F
    (–40°C) and +158°F (+70°C).

    Using the Kit

    The kit is located in the spare wheel well.
    WARNINGS
    Compressed air can act as an
    explosive or propellant.

    General Information
    WARNINGS
    Depending on the type and extent of
    tire damage, some tires can only be
    partially sealed or not sealed at all.
    Loss of tire pressure can affect vehicle
    handling, leading to loss of vehicle control.

    Never leave the kit unattended while
    in use.
    Do not keep the compressor
    operating for more than 10 minutes.
    You must only use the kit for the
    vehicle with which it was supplied.

    Do not use the kit on a previously
    damaged tire, for example when it
    has been driven under inflated.

    Wheels and Tires












    Park your vehicle at the roadside so
    that you do not obstruct the flow of
    traffic and so that you are able to use
    the kit without being in danger.
    Apply the parking brake, even if you
    have parked on a level road, to make
    sure that your vehicle will not move.
    Do not attempt to remove foreign
    objects like nails or screws penetrating
    the tire.
    Leave the engine running while the kit
    is in use, but not if your vehicle is in an
    enclosed or poorly ventilated area (e.g,
    inside a building). In these
    circumstances, switch the compressor
    on with the engine switched off.
    You must replace the sealant bottle
    with a new one before the expiry date
    (see top of bottle).
    Inform all other users of your vehicle
    that the tire has been temporarily
    sealed with the kit. Make them aware
    of the special driving conditions that
    must be observed.

    WARNINGS
    If the tire inflation pressure does not
    reach 26 psi (1.8 bar) within 10
    minutes, the tire may have suffered
    excessive damage, making a temporary
    repair impossible. Do not continue driving
    with this tire.

    Inflating the Tire
    WARNINGS
    Check the sidewall of the tire prior to
    inflation. If there are any cracks,
    bumps or similar damage, do not
    attempt to inflate the tire.
    Do not stand directly beside the tire
    while the compressor is operating.
    Watch the sidewall of the tire. If any
    cracks, bumps or similar damage
    appears, switch off the compressor
    and let the air out by means of the pressure
    relief valve I. Do not continue driving with
    this tire.
    The sealant contains natural rubber
    latex. Avoid contact with skin and
    clothing. If this happens, rinse the
    affected areas immediately with plenty of
    water and contact a Physician.

    12. Inflate the tire for no longer than 10
    minutes to an inflation pressure of
    minimum 26 psi (1.8 bar) and a
    maximum of 51 psi (3.5 bar). Move
    the compressor switch G to position
    0 and check the current tire pressure
    with pressure gauge E.
    Note: If a tire pressure of 26 psi (1.8 bar) is
    not reached do not continue.

    Note: After you have switched the
    compressor off, you may hear air escaping
    from the damaged tire. This is normal and
    can be ignored provided that the specified
    minimum tire pressure has been reached.
    13.

    Remove the power plug F from the
    cigar lighter socket or auxiliary power
    socket.
    14. Quickly unscrew the hose C from the

    pressure is less than 14.7 psi (1 bar) or if
    there are any cracks, bumps or similar
    damage visible, do not continue driving
    with this tire.
    18.

    Stop your vehicle after driving
    approximately two miles (three
    kilometers). Check, and where
    necessary, adjust the pressure of the
    damaged tire.

    inform your tire dealer that the tire
    contains sealant. You must renew the
    sealant bottle B and hose C as soon
    as possible once used.
    Note: Remember that the kit only provides
    temporary mobility. Regulations concerning
    tire repair after using the kit may differ from
    country to country. You should consult a tire
    specialist for advice.

    TIRE CARE

    To make sure the front and rear tires of
    your vehicle wear evenly and last longer,
    we recommend that you swap the tires
    from front to rear and vice versa at regular
    intervals of between 3000 and 6000 miles
    (5000 and 10000 kilometers).
    WARNING
    Do not scrub the sidewalls of the
    tires when you are parking.
    If you have to mount a curb, do so slowly
    and approach it with the wheels at
    right-angles to the curb.

    WARNING

    Examine the tires regularly for cuts, foreign
    objects and uneven wear of the tread.
    Uneven wear could mean that the wheel
    alignment is outside specification.

    Before driving, make sure the tire is
    adjusted to the recommended
    inflation pressure. See Technical
    Specifications (page 178). You must,
    monitor the tire pressure until the sealed
    tire is replaced.

    Check the tire pressures (including the
    spare) when cold, every two weeks.

    USING WINTER TIRES

    Empty sealant bottles can be disposed of
    together with normal household waste.
    Return remains of sealant to an authorized
    dealer or dispose of it in compliance with
    local waste disposal regulations.

    If winter tires are used you must inflate
    them to the same tire pressures as those
    listed in the tire pressure table. See
    Technical Specifications (page 178).

    USING SNOW CHAINS

    WARNINGS
    Do not drive on significantly
    under-inflated tires. This may cause
    the tires to overheat and fail.
    Under-inflation reduces fuel efficiency, tire
    tread life and may also affect your ability
    to drive your vehicle safely.

    WARNINGS
    Do not exceed 30 mph (50 km/h).
    Do not use snow chains on snow-free
    roads.

    Do not bend or damage the valves
    when you are inflating the tires.

    Only fit snow chains to specified
    tires. See Technical Specifications
    (page 178).

    Have tires installed by an authorized
    dealer.

    If your vehicle has wheel trims,
    remove them before fitting snow
    chains.

    The deflation detection system will alert
    you if there is a change of air pressure in
    any tire. It does this by using the anti-lock
    braking sensors to detect the rolling
    circumference of the wheels. When the
    circumference changes, this indicates low
    tire pressure. A warning message is
    displayed in the information display and
    the message indicator will illuminate. See
    Information Messages (page 66).

    Note: The anti-lock braking system will
    continue to operate normally.
    Only use small link snow chains.
    Only use snow chains on the front wheels.

    Vehicles with Stability Control
    When stability control is on, your vehicle
    may exhibit some unusual driving
    characteristics. To reduce this, switch
    traction control off. See Using Stability
    Control (page 110).

    If a low pressure warning message is
    displayed in the information display, check
    the tire pressures as soon as possible and
    inflate them to the recommended
    pressure. See Technical Specifications
    (page 178).

    TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING
    SYSTEM - VEHICLES BUILT UP
    TO: 01-06-2014

    If this happens frequently, have the cause
    determined and rectified as soon as
    possible.
    Apart from a too low tire pressure or a
    damaged tire, the following situations can
    affect the rolling circumference:
    • Vehicle load is uneven.
    • When using a trailer or traveling up and
    down an incline.
    • Using snow chains.
    • Driving on soft surfaces such as snow
    or mud.

    WARNINGS
    The system does not relieve you of
    your responsibility to regularly check
    the tire pressures.
    The system will only provide a low
    tire pressure warning. It will not
    inflate the tires.

    Note: The system will still function
    correctly, but there may be an increased
    detection time.

    System Reset

    As a driver assistance feature, your vehicle
    has a tire pressure monitoring system. A
    warning lamp will illuminate when one or
    more of the tires are significantly
    under-inflated. If the low tire pressure
    warning lamp illuminates, you should stop
    your vehicle as soon as it is safe to do so,
    check the tires and inflate them to the
    correct pressure.

    Note: Do not reset the system when your
    vehicle is moving.
    Note: You should reset the system
    following any adjustment to the tire
    pressures or any changing of tires.
    1. Switch the ignition on.
    2. Using the information display control,
    navigate to Menu > Vehicle settings
    > Deflation detection.
    3. Press and hold the OK button until
    confirmation appears.

    Driving on under-inflated tires can:
    • Cause them to overheat.
    • Lead to tire failure.
    • Reduce fuel efficiency.
    • Reduce tire life.
    • Affect vehicle handling or stopping
    ability.

    TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING
    SYSTEM - VEHICLES BUILT
    FROM: 02-06-2014

    The system is not a substitute for correct
    tire maintenance.

    WARNING

    You must maintain the correct tire
    pressures, even if low tire pressure has not
    illuminated the warning lamp.

    The tire pressure monitoring system
    is not a substitute for manually
    checking tire pressures. You should
    periodically check tire pressures using a
    pressure gauge. Failure to correctly
    maintain tire pressures could increase the
    risk of tire failure, loss of control, vehicle
    rollover and personal injury.

    The tire pressure monitoring system has a
    system malfunction indicator to warn you
    when the system is not operating correctly.
    The malfunction indicator and low tire
    pressure warning lamp have a combined
    function. When the system detects a
    malfunction, the warning lamp will flash
    for approximately one minute and then
    remain illuminated. This sequence will
    occur every time you switch the ignition on
    while the malfunction remains. The system
    has detected a fault that requires service.

    You must check the tire pressures
    (including the spare tire where applicable)
    every two weeks when the tires are cold.

    When the malfunction indicator is
    illuminated, the system may not be able
    to detect or signal low tire pressures. A
    malfunction may occur for a variety of
    reasons, including the installation of a
    replacement tire or wheel that prevents
    the system from functioning correctly.
    Always check the tire pressure monitoring
    system malfunction warning after

    You must inflate the tires to the correct
    pressure.
    See Wheels and Tires (page 165). The tire
    pressures are also on the tire inflation
    pressure label (located on the edge of
    driver door or the B-Pillar).

    Understanding the Tire Pressure
    Monitoring System

    replacing one or more tires or wheels on
    your vehicle. Make sure the replacement
    tires or wheels allow the system to
    continue to function correctly. See When
    the Temporary Spare Tire is Installed
    in this section.

    The system measures the pressure in the
    four road tires and sends the tire pressure
    readings to your vehicle.
    The system detects this lower pressure as
    being significantly below the correct
    inflation pressure and the warning lamp
    illuminates. You must inflate the tires to
    the correct pressure.

    Changing Tires With a Tire
    Pressure Monitoring System

    When the Temporary Spare Tire is
    Installed
    If you need to replace a road wheel and
    tire with the temporary spare wheel, the
    system will continue to identify a defect.
    This is to remind you to repair the damaged
    road wheel and tire and refit the repaired
    road wheel and tire assembly to your
    vehicle. To restore the correct operation
    of the system, you must have the repaired
    road wheel and tire assembly refitted to
    your vehicle. For additional information,
    see Changing Tires with a Tire Pressure
    Monitoring System in this section.

    You should always have tires serviced by
    an authorized dealer.
    Note: Each road wheel and tire is fitted with
    a tire pressure sensor located inside the
    wheel and tire assembly cavity. The pressure
    sensor attaches to the valve stem. The tire
    covers the pressure sensor and it is not
    visible unless the tire is removed. Take care
    when changing the tire to avoid damaging
    the sensor.

    When You Believe the System is Not
    Operating Correctly
    The main function of the system is to warn
    you when the tire pressures are low. It can
    also warn you in the event the system is
    no longer capable of operating correctly.
    See the following chart for information
    concerning the system:

    The tires need to be periodically rotated
    to provide consistent performance and
    maximum tire life, the system needs to
    know when the tires have been rotated to
    determine which set of tires are on the
    front and rear axles. With this information,
    the system can detect and correctly warn

    of low tire pressures.

    How Temperature Affects the Tire
    Pressures
    Under normal driving conditions tire
    pressures may increase by up to 4 psi
    (0.3 bar) from a cold start situation.

    CHANGING A ROAD WHEEL

    If the vehicle is stationary overnight and
    the temperature significantly lower than
    the daytime temperature, tire pressures
    may decrease by up to 3 psi (0.2 bar) when
    there is a drop in the ambient temperature
    of 31°F (17°C) or more. The system detects
    this pressure decrease as being
    significantly below the correct inflation
    pressure and the warning lamp illuminates.

    You can obtain a replacement locking lug
    nut key and replacement locking lug nuts
    from an authorized dealer using the
    reference number certificate.

    Lug Nuts

    Vehicles With a Spare Wheel
    If the spare wheel is exactly the same type
    and size as the other fitted road wheels,
    you can replace the existing road wheel
    with the spare wheel and continue to drive
    in the normal manner.

    When Inflating the Tires
    When inflating the tires the system may
    not respond immediately to the air added
    to the tires.

    If the spare wheel is different to the other
    road wheels, it will carry a yellow label with
    the appropriate speed limit.

    If the Warning Lamp is On:

    Refer to the following information before
    changing the road wheel.

    1.

    Check each tire to verify that none are
    flat.
    2. If one or more tires are flat, repair as
    necessary.
    3. Check the tire pressures and inflate all
    the tires to the correct pressure.

    WARNINGS
    Drive the shortest possible distances.
    Do not fit more than one spare wheel
    on your vehicle at any one time.

    Audio System
    GENERAL INFORMATION
    Radio Frequencies and Reception Factors
    Radio reception factors

    Distance and Strength

    The further you travel away from an FM station, the weaker
    the signal and the weaker the reception.

    Terrain

    Hills, mountains, tall buildings, bridges, tunnels, freeway
    overpasses, parking garages, dense tree foliage and
    thunderstorms can interfere with the reception.

    Station overload

    When you pass near a radio transmission tower, a stronger
    signal can override a weaker signal and can cause interference in the audio system.

    MP3 and WMA Track and Folder
    Structure

    CD and CD Player Information
    Note: CD units play commercially pressed
    4.75-inch (12 centimeter) audio compact
    discs only. Due to technical incompatibility,
    certain recordable and re-recordable
    compact discs may not function correctly
    when used in Ford CD players.

    Audio systems capable of recognizing and
    playing MP3 and WMA individual tracks
    and folder structures work as follows:
    • There are two different modes for MP3
    and WMA disc playback: MP3 and
    WMA track mode (system default) and
    MP3 and WMA folder mode.
    • MP3 and WMA track mode ignores any
    folder structure on the MP3 and WMA
    disc. The player numbers each MP3
    and WMA track on the disc (noted by
    the MP3 or WMA file extension) from
    T001 to a maximum of T255. The
    maximum number of playable MP3 and
    WMA files may be less depending on
    the structure of the CD and exact
    model of radio present.

    Note: Do not insert CDs with homemade
    paper (adhesive) labels into the CD player
    as the label may peel and cause the CD to
    become jammed. You should use a
    permanent felt tip marker rather than
    adhesive labels on your homemade CDs.
    Ballpoint pens may damage CDs. Please
    contact an authorized dealer for further
    information.
    Note: Do not use any irregularly shaped
    discs or discs with a scratch protection film
    attached.
    Always handle discs by their edges only.
    Clean the disc with an approved CD
    cleaner only. Wipe it from the center of the
    disc toward the edge. Do not clean in a
    circular motion.
    Do not expose discs to direct sunlight or
    heat sources for extended periods.

    Audio System




    MP3 and WMA folder mode represents
    a folder structure consisting of one
    level of folders. The CD player numbers
    all MP3 and WMA tracks on the disc
    (noted by the MP3 or WMA file
    extension) and all folders containing
    MP3 and WMA files, from F001 (folder)
    T001 (track) to F253 T255.
    Creating discs with only one level of
    folders helps with navigation through
    the disc files.

    In track mode, the system displays and
    plays the structure as if it were only one
    level deep (all MP3 and WMA files play,
    regardless of being in a specific folder). In
    folder mode, the system only plays the
    MP3 and WMA files in the current folder.

    AUDIO UNIT - VEHICLES WITH:
    AM/FM/CD
    WARNING

    If you are burning your own MP3 and WMA
    discs, it is important to understand how
    the system reads the structures you create.
    While various files may be present, (files
    with extensions other than MP3 and
    WMA), only files with the MP3 and WMA
    extension are played; other files are
    ignored by the system. This enables you to
    use the same MP3 and WMA disc for a
    variety of tasks on your work computer,
    home computer and your in-vehicle
    system.

    Driving while distracted can result in
    loss of vehicle control, crash and
    injury. We strongly recommend that
    you use extreme caution when using any
    device that may take your focus off the
    road. Your primary responsibility is the safe
    operation of your vehicle. We recommend
    against the use of any hand-held device
    while driving and encourage the use of
    voice-operated systems when possible.
    Make sure you are aware of all applicable
    local laws that may affect the use of
    electronic devices while driving.

    3. Press and hold one of the preset
    buttons. A progress bar and message
    will appear. When the progress bar
    completes the station has been stored.
    The audio unit will also mute
    momentarily as confirmation.

    When traffic information is broadcast, it
    will automatically interrupt normal radio
    or CD playback and Traffic
    announcement will appear in the display.
    If a non-traffic station is selected or
    recalled using a preset button, the audio
    unit will remain on that station unless TA
    or TRAFFIC is turned off, then on again.

    You can repeat this on each waveband and
    for each preset button.
    Note: When you drive to another part of the
    country, stations that broadcast on
    alternative frequencies and are stored on
    preset buttons, may be updated with the
    correct frequency and station name for that
    area.

    Note: If traffic announcement is on and you
    select a preset or manual tune to a non
    traffic announcement station no traffic
    announcement will be heard.
    Note: When you are listening to a non
    traffic announcement station and turn
    traffic announcement off and on again a TP
    seek will occur.

    Autostore Control
    Note: This will store up to a maximum of
    the six strongest signals available, either
    from the AM or the FM waveband and
    overwrite the previously stored stations. You
    can also store stations manually in the same
    way as other wavebands.



    Traffic Announcement Volume
    Traffic announcements interrupt normal
    broadcasts at a preset minimum level that
    is usually louder than normal listening
    volumes.

    Press and hold the RADIO button.
    When the search is complete, sound is
    restored and the strongest signals are
    stored on the autostore presets.

    To adjust the preset volume:


    Traffic Information Control
    Many stations that broadcast on the FM
    waveband have a TP code to signify that
    they carry traffic program information.

    Use the volume control to make the
    necessary adjustment during an
    incoming traffic announcement
    broadcast. The display will show the
    level selected.

    Ending Traffic Announcements
    The audio unit will return to normal
    operation at the end of each traffic
    announcement. To end the announcement
    prematurely, press TA or TRAFFIC during
    the announcement.

    Turning Traffic Announcements On and
    Off
    Before you can receive traffic
    announcements, you must press either the
    TA or TRAFFIC button. A TA display will
    appear to show the feature is switched on.

    Note: If you press TA or TRAFFIC at any
    other time it will switch all announcements
    off.

    If you are already tuned to a station that
    broadcasts traffic information, TP will also
    be displayed. Otherwise the unit will search
    for a traffic program.

    Automatic Volume Control
    When available, automatic volume control
    adjusts the volume level to compensate
    for engine noise and road speed noise.

    and if necessary, it will search once across
    the selected waveband for a genuine
    alternative frequency.
    It will restore radio reception when it finds
    one or if one is not found, the unit will
    return to the original stored frequency.

    News Broadcasts

    When selected, AF will be shown in the
    display.

    Your audio unit may interrupt normal

    The display will indicate there is an
    incoming announcement, during news
    broadcasts. When the audio unit interrupts
    for a news broadcast the preset volume
    level will be the same as traffic
    announcements.

    Regional Mode
    Regional mode controls the behavior of
    alternative frequencies switching between
    regionally related networks of a parent
    broadcaster. A broadcaster may run a fairly
    large network across a large part of the
    country. At various times of the day this
    large network may be broken down into a
    number of smaller regional networks,
    typically centered on major towns or cities.
    When the network is not split into regional
    variants, the whole network carries the
    same programming.

    1. Press the MENU button.
    2. Select AUDIO or AUDIO SETTINGS.
    3. Scroll to NEWS and turn on or off with
    the OK button.
    4. Press the MENU button to return.

    Alternative Frequencies
    The majority of programs that broadcast
    on the FM waveband have a program
    identification code, it can be recognized by
    audio units.

    Regional mode ON: This prevents random
    alternative frequency switches when
    neighboring regional networks are not
    carrying the same programming.

    When your vehicle moves from one
    transmission area to another with the
    alternative frequencies tuning switched
    on, this function will search for the
    strongest station signal.

    Regional mode OFF: This allows a larger
    coverage area if neighboring regional
    networks are carrying the same
    programming, but can cause random
    alternative frequency switches if they are
    not.

    Under certain conditions, alternative
    frequencies tuning may temporarily disrupt
    normal reception.
