    Introduction
    ABOUT THIS MANUAL
    Thank you for choosing Ford. We
    recommend that you take some time to
    get to know your vehicle by reading this
    manual. The more that you know about
    it, the greater the safety and pleasure you
    will get from driving it.
    WARNING
    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.

    Introduction
    Parking aid

    In general, this technical information
    documents the condition of parts,
    modules, systems or the environment:
    • Operating conditions of system
    components (e.g. filling levels).
    • Status messages of the vehicle and its
    individual components (e.g. number of
    wheel revolutions/rotational speed,
    deceleration, lateral acceleration).
    • Malfunction and defects in important
    system components (e.g. lighting and
    brake system).
    • Vehicle reactions in particular driving
    situations (e.g. inflation of an airbag,
    activation of the stability regulation
    system).
    • Environmental conditions (e.g.
    temperature).

    Parking brake

    Power steering fluid

    Power windows front/rear

    Power window lockout

    Service engine soon

    Side airbag

    These data are exclusively technical and
    help identification and correction of errors
    as well as optimisation of vehicle
    functions. Motion profiles indicating
    travelled routes cannot be created with
    these data.

    Shield the eyes

    Stability control

    If services are used (e.g. repair works,
    service processes, warranty cases, quality
    assurance), employees of the service
    network (including manufacturers) are
    able to read out this technical information
    from the event and error data storage
    modules using special diagnostic devices.
    If required, you will receive further
    information. After an error has been
    corrected, these data are deleted from the
    error storage module or they are constantly
    overwritten.

    DATA RECORDING
    A large number of electronic components
    of your vehicle contain data storage
    modules temporarily or permanently
    storing technical data about the condition
    of the vehicle, events and errors.

    When using the vehicle, situations may
    occur in which these technical data related
    to other information (accident report,
    damages on the vehicle, witness
    statements etc.) may be associated with
    a specific person - possibly, with the
    assistance of an expert.

    Introduction
    Warranty on Replacement Parts

    Additional functions contractually agreed
    upon with the client (e.g. vehicle location
    in emergency cases) allow the
    transmission of particular vehicle data
    from the vehicle.

    Genuine Ford and Motorcraft replacement
    parts are the only replacement parts that
    benefit from a Ford Warranty. Damage
    caused to your vehicle as a result of the
    failure of non-Ford parts may not be
    covered by the Ford Warranty. For
    additional information, refer to the terms
    and conditions of the Ford Warranty.

    REPLACEMENT PARTS
    RECOMMENDATION
    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.

    MOBILE COMMUNICATIONS
    EQUIPMENT
    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
    appropriately used, particularly in
    emergency situations. Safety must be
    paramount when using mobile
    communications equipment to avoid
    negating these benefits. Mobile
    communication equipment includes, but
    is not limited to, cellular phones, pagers,
    portable email devices, text messaging
    devices and portable two-way radios.

    Scheduled Maintenance and
    Mechanical Repairs
    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.

    WARNING

    Collision Repairs

    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.

    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
    collision parts.

    Child Safety
    INSTALLING CHILD SEATS

    WARNINGS
    Do not leave children or pets
    unattended in your vehicle.
    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-R129,
    ECE-R44.03 or later have been tested and
    approved for use in your vehicle. A choice
    of child seats are available from authorized
    dealers.

    Child Seats for Different Mass
    Groups
    Use the correct child seat as follows:
    Baby Safety Seat (Group 0+)

    WARNINGS
    Use an approved child seat to secure
    children less than 59 in (150 cm) tall
    on the rear seat.
    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.
    Read and follow the manufacturer’s
    instructions when you are installing
    a child seat.

    Secure children that weigh less than 29 lb
    (13 kg) in a rearward facing baby safety
    seat on the rear seat.

    Do not modify child seats in any way.
    Do not hold a child on your lap when
    your vehicle is moving.

    Child Safety
    Child Safety Seat (Group 1)

    Note: When using a child seat on a rear
    seat, adjust the front seat in a position to
    prevent contact with the rear passenger,
    child feet or child legs.
    Booster Seat (Group 2)

    Secure children that weigh between 29 lb
    (13 kg) and 40 lb (18 kg)in a child safety
    seat on the rear seat.

    Booster Seats
    Secure children that weigh more than 33 lb
    (15 kg) but are less than 59.06 in (150 cm)
    tall in a booster seat or a booster cushion.

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

    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
    your child's hips.

    Do not install a booster seat or a
    booster cushion with a safety belt
    that is slack or twisted.
    Do not put the safety belt under your
    child’s arm or behind your child's
    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: Make sure the child seat rests tightly
    against the vehicle seat. If necessary, adjust
    the seat backrest to an upright position. It
    may also be necessary to lift or remove the
    head restraint. See Head Restraints (page
    104).

    Child Safety
    Booster Cushion (Group 3)

    Your vehicle has ISOFIX anchor points that
    accommodate universally approved
    ISOFIX child seats.
    The ISOFIX system has two rigid
    attachment arms on the child seat. These
    attach to anchor points on the second row
    seats, where the cushion and backrest
    meet. For child seats with a top tether,
    tether anchor points are on the rear of the
    second row seats.

    Attaching a Child Seat With Top
    Tethers
    WARNINGS
    Do not attach the top tether strap to
    anything other than the correct top
    tether strap anchor point.

    ISOFIX Anchor Points

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

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

    Follow the child seat manufacturer’s
    instructions for installing a child seat with
    a top tether.

    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 20).

    Note: When using a child seat on a front
    seat, always adjust the front passenger seat
    as far back as possible. If it proves difficult
    to tighten the lap section of the safety belt

    Safety Belts
    Using Safety Belts During
    Pregnancy

    FASTENING THE SAFETY
    BELTS
    WARNINGS
    You have not fastened the safety
    belt correctly if you do not hear a
    distinct click. Failure to fasten the
    safety belt correctly could reduce its
    effectiveness and increase the risk of injury
    in a crash.
    Make sure that your safety belt is
    securely stored away and is not
    outside your vehicle when closing the
    door. Failure of an occupant to be able to
    use a trapped safety belt increases the risk
    of serious personal injury or death.

    WARNING
    Position the safety belt correctly for
    your safety and that of your unborn
    child. Do not use only the lap strap
    or the shoulder strap. Failure to adjust the
    safety belt correctly could reduce its
    effectiveness and increase the risk of injury
    in a crash.
    Pregnant women should always wear their
    safety belt. The lap belt portion of a
    combination lap and shoulder belt should
    be positioned low across the hips below
    the belly and worn as tight as comfort will
    allow. The shoulder belt portion of a
    combination lap and shoulder belt should
    be positioned to cross the middle of the
    shoulder and the center of the chest.

    SAFETY BELT HEIGHT
    ADJUSTMENT

    Pull the safety belt out steadily. It may lock
    if you pull it sharply or if your vehicle is on
    a slope.

    WARNING

    Insert the tongue into the buckle until you
    hear a distinct click.

    Position the safety belt height
    adjusters so that the belt rests
    across the middle of your shoulder.
    Failure to adjust the safety belt correctly
    could reduce the effectiveness of the
    safety belt and increase the risk of injury in
    a crash.

    To release the safety belt press the red
    button on the buckle. Hold the tongue and
    let the safety belt retract to its stowed
    position.

    WARNING
    The system will only provide
    protection when you use the safety
    belt correctly.
    The warning lamp illuminates and an
    audible warning will sound when the
    following conditions have been met:
    • The front safety belts have not been
    fastened.
    • Your vehicle exceeds a relatively low
    speed.
    It will also illuminate and sound if a front
    safety belt is unfastened when your vehicle
    is moving.
    If you do not fasten your safety belt the
    warning switches off automatically after
    approximately five minutes.

    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 104). 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.

    PASSENGER AIRBAG

    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.

    Supplementary Restraints System
    The passenger airbag will deploy during
    significant frontal or near-frontal collisions.
    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 front passenger
    airbag will not deploy.

    SIDE CURTAIN AIRBAGS

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

    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 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 airbag will deploy during significant
    lateral collisions. It might also deploy
    during significant frontal collisions. The
    airbag will not deploy in minor lateral and
    frontal collisions, rear collisions, or
    overturns.

    Note: Changes or modifications not
    expressly approved by the party responsible
    for compliance could void the user’s
    authority to operate the equipment.

    Intelligent Access Key

    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.

    Key Blade

    The radio frequency used by your remote
    control can also be used by other radio
    transmitters, for example amateur radios,
    medical equipment, wireless headphones,
    wireless remote controls, cell phones,
    battery chargers and alarm systems. If the
    frequencies are jammed, you will not be
    able to use your remote control. You can
    lock and unlock the doors with the key.

    The intelligent access key also contains a
    removable key blade that you can use to
    unlock your vehicle.

    Note: Make sure your vehicle is locked
    before leaving it unattended.
    Note: If you are in range, the remote control
    will operate if you press any button
    unintentionally.
    Note: The remote control contains sensitive
    electrical components. Exposure to moisture
    or impact may cause permanent damage.
    To release the key blade:
    1.

    Press and hold the buttons on the
    edges to release the cover. Carefully

    PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION

    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
    traction control, navigation and parking
    aids. These systems turn on
    automatically whenever you switch the
    ignition on.

    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.
    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 configurable 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.

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

    Note: All MyKeys are programmed to the
    same settings. You cannot program them
    individually.
    Note: For vehicles with push-button start,
    when both a MyKey and an admin remote
    transmitter are present, the admin remote
    transmitter will be recognized by the vehicle
    while switching the ignition on to start the
    vehicle.

    WARNING
    Do not set MyKey maximum speed
    limit to a limit that will prevent the
    driver from maintaining a safe speed
    considering posted speed limits and
    prevailing road conditions. The driver is
    always responsible to drive in accordance
    with local laws and prevailing conditions.
    Failure to do so could result in accident or
    injury.

    possible gas strut failure. A repetitive
    chime sounds and the liftgate closes under
    control. Remove any excessive weight from
    the liftgate. If the liftgate continues to
    close after opening, have the system
    checked by an authorized dealer.

    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.

    LIFTGATE
    WARNINGS
    It is extremely dangerous to ride in a
    cargo area, inside or outside of a
    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.

    Note: The system recalls the new
    programmed height until you reprogram it,
    even if you disconnect the battery.
    When operating the power liftgate after
    you have programmed a lower height than
    full-open, you can fully open the liftgate
    by manually pushing it upward to the
    maximum open position.

    Obstacle Detection
    When Closing

    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.

    The system stops when it detects an
    obstacle. Two short tones sound and the
    system reverses to open. Once you remove
    the obstacle, you can power close the
    liftgate.

    Keep keys out of reach of children.
    Do not allow children to play near an
    open or moving power liftgate.

    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
    (1.5 meters) from the front door handles
    and the liftgate.

    Locking buttons are located on each of the
    front doors.
    For central locking and to arm the alarm,
    press a locking button once.

    Note: The system may not function if the
    passive key is close to metal objects or
    electronic devices, for example keys or a cell
    phone.

    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 Key
    Your vehicle can be locked and unlocked
    using the passive key. You can also use the
    passive key as a remote control to lock and
    unlock your vehicle. See Locking and
    Unlocking (page 38).

    Note: Keep the door handle surface clean
    to make sure the system operates correctly.
    Note: Your vehicle will remain locked for
    approximately one second. When the delay
    period is over, you can open the doors again,
    provided the passive key is within the
    respective detection range.

    Locking Your Vehicle
    Note: Your vehicle does not automatically
    lock. If you do not touch a locking sensor
    your vehicle will remain unlocked.

    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.
    Liftgate
    The liftgate cannot be closed and will
    reopen if the passive key is located inside
    the luggage compartment with the doors
    locked.
    Note: If a second valid passive key is
    located within the liftgate detection range,
    the liftgate can be closed.

    Unlocking Your Vehicle

    You cannot use a disabled key to switch
    the ignition on or start the engine.
    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. All
    passive keys will then be enabled if you
    switch the ignition on or you start your
    vehicle with a valid key.
    Note: You can still start your vehicle when
    the passive key is in the back-up position.
    See Push Button Ignition Switch (page
    118).

    Pull an exterior door handle to unlock and
    open the door. Do not touch the lock
    sensor on the front of the handle.

    Locking and Unlocking the Doors
    with the Key Blade

    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.
    Note: A valid passive key must be located
    within the detection range of that door.
    Unlocking Only the Driver's Door
    You can program the system so that only
    the driver door is unlocked. See Locking
    and Unlocking (page 38).
    If the unlocking function is reprogrammed
    so that only the driver door is unlocked the
    following will occur:
    • If the driver’s door is the first door
    which is opened, the other doors will
    remain locked. All the other doors can
    be unlocked from inside your vehicle
    by pressing the unlock button located
    on the driver's and front passenger's
    door. Doors can be unlocked
    individually by pulling the interior door
    handles on those doors.
    • If the front passenger's door is the first
    door which is opened, all the doors and
    the liftgate will be unlocked.

    1. Carefully remove the cover.
    2. Remove the key blade and insert it into
    the lock.
    Note: Only the driver's door handle has a
    lock cylinder.

    Principle of Operation
    The system prevents someone from
    starting the engine with an incorrectly
    coded key.

    Alarm System

    Note: Do not leave correctly coded keys in
    the vehicle. Always take your keys and lock
    all doors when leaving the vehicle.

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

    WARNING

    Coded Keys
    Perimeter Alarm

    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.

    The perimeter alarm is a deterrent against
    unauthorized access to your vehicle
    through the doors and the hood.
    Interior Sensors

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

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

    Note: Do not cover up the interior lamp unit
    sensors.

    Disarming the Engine Immobilizer

    Note: Make sure you switch the windshield
    wipers and vehicle power off before using
    an automatic car wash.
    Note: If streaks or smears appear on the
    windshield, clean the windshield and the
    wiper blades. See Checking the Wiper
    Blades (page 241). If that does not resolve
    the issue, install new wiper blades. See
    Changing the Wiper Blades (page 241).
    Note: Do not operate the wipers on a dry
    windshield. This may scratch the glass,
    damage the wiper blades or cause the wiper
    motor to burn out. Always use the
    windshield washers before wiping a dry
    windshield.

    The autowipers feature uses a rain sensor.
    You can find it in the area around the
    interior mirror. The rain sensor monitors
    the amount of moisture on the windshield
    and automatically turns on the wipers. It
    adjusts the wiper speed by the amount of
    moisture that the sensor detects on the
    windshield.

    Note: Move to position O marked on the
    wiper lever to switch off.

    autowiper system is on, the
    autowiper sensitivity setting adjusts
    the wiper speed according to the
    moisture on the windshield only.
    • When you lower the sensitivity, the
    wipers remain in their ready
    position only. They do not wipe the
    windshield automatically unless
    the sensor detects moisture.
    • Move the wiper lever position up to
    the second position to wipe the
    windshield on-demand.
    • Rotate the control up to high
    sensitivity, and the wipers turn on when
    the rain sensor detects a small amount
    of moisture on the windshield.
    • When you set the wiper control to
    a higher sensitivity, the wipers wipe
    the windshield once.
    • Remember to move the wiper lever
    position up to the second position
    to wipe the windshield on-demand.

    Switch the autowipers on by moving the
    wiper lever up to the first position.
    Switch the autowipers off by moving the

    Information (page 80). The autowipers
    feature functions only when you select the
    menu choice in the information display and
    you move the wiper lever up to the first
    position. The autowipers feature then
    remains on in the information display menu
    until you change it to intermittent wipe.

    WINDSHIELD WASHERS
    Note: Do not operate the washers when
    the washer reservoir is empty. This may
    cause the washer pump to overheat.

    Note: If you switch autolamps on in
    conjunction with autowipers, your low beam
    headlamps turn on automatically when the
    rain sensor activates the windshield wipers
    continuously. See Autolamps (page 61).
    Keep the outside of the windshield clean.
    The rain sensor is very sensitive. If the area
    around the mirror is dirty, then the wipers
    may operate if dirt, mist or insects hit the
    windshield.

    To operate the washers and spray the
    windshield, pull the lever toward you.
    When you release the lever, the wipers will
    operate for a short time.

    Wet or winter driving conditions with ice,
    snow or salty road mist can cause
    inconsistent and unexpected wiping or
    smearing. In these conditions, you can do
    the following to help keep your windshield
    clear:
    • Lower the sensitivity of the autowipers
    to reduce the amount of smearing.
    • Switch to normal or high-speed wipe
    by moving the wiper lever up.
    • Switch the autowipers off and switch
    intermittent mode on through the

    GENERAL INFORMATION

    LIGHTING CONTROL

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

    DAYTIME RUNNING LAMPS

    WARNINGS
    Check and replace wiper blades
    regularly to ensure the camera
    sensor has a clear view through the
    windscreen. Replacement wiper blades
    must be the correct length.

    WARNING
    Always remember to switch your
    headlamps on in low light situations
    or during inclement weather. The
    system does not activate the tail lamps
    and may not provide adequate lighting
    during these conditions. Failure to activate
    your headlamps under these conditions
    may result in a collision.

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

    To switch the system on:

    Note: Reflective road signs may be
    detected as oncoming traffic and the
    headlamps will be switched to low beam.

    1. Switch the ignition on.
    2. Switch the lighting control to the off or
    autolamp position.

    Note: Always fit Ford Original Parts when
    replacing headlamp bulbs. Other bulbs may
    reduce system performance.
    The system will automatically switch on
    high beams if it is dark enough and no other
    traffic is present. If it detects an
    approaching vehicle’s headlamps or tail
    lamps, or street lighting ahead the system
    will switch off high beam before it can
    distract other road users. Low beam will
    remain on.

    AUTOMATIC HIGH BEAM
    CONTROL
    WARNINGS
    The system does not relieve you of
    your responsibility to drive with due
    care and attention. A manual
    override may be necessary if the system
    fails to switch the high beam on or off.

    A camera sensor is centrally mounted
    behind the windshield of your vehicle. This
    monitors conditions continuously to decide
    when to switch the high beams on and off.

    A manual override may be required
    when approaching other road users
    such as cyclists.

    Once the system is active the high beam
    will switch on if:
    • It is dark enough to require the use of
    high beams and
    • there is no traffic or street lighting
    ahead and
    • vehicle speed is greater than 25 mph
    (40 km/h).

    Do not use the system in fog.
    In cold and severe weather
    conditions the system may not
    function. A manual override may be
    necessary in these cases.

    The high beam will switch off if:
    • The rear fog lamps are switched on.
    • The ambient light is high enough that
    high beam is not required.
    • An approaching vehicle's headlamps
    or tail lamps are detected.

    The system may not deactivate the
    high beam if the lights of oncoming
    vehicles are hidden by obstacles (for
    example guard rails).
