Use the key to turn
the ignition switch to
four different positions.
The ignition switch
is located on the center
9 (OFF/LOCK): This position locks the ignition and
transmission. It is a theft-deterrent feature. You will only
be able to remove the key when the ignition is turned
to OFF/LOCK and the vehicle has power.
Notice: Using a tool to force the key from the
ignition switch could cause damage or break the key.
Use the correct key and turn the key only with your
hand. Make sure the key is all the way in. If it is, turn
the steering wheel left and right while you turn the
key hard. If none of this works, then your vehicle
ACC (Accessory): This position lets you use things
like the radio and the windshield wipers when the
engine is off.
Notice: Lengthy operation of features such as the
radio in the accessory ignition position may drain
the battery and prevent your vehicle from starting.
Do not operate your vehicle in the accessory ignition
position for a long period of time.
R (RUN): This is the position for driving.
/ (START): This position starts the engine.
Retained Accessory Power (RAP)
Your vehicle is equipped with a Retained Accessory
Power (RAP) feature which will allow certain features
of your vehicle to continue to work up to 10 minutes after
the ignition key is turned to OFF/LOCK.
Your radio, power windows, DVD player, sunroof (option)
and overhead console will work when the ignition key is in
RUN or ACCESSORY. Once the key is turned from RUN
to OFF/LOCK, these features will continue to work for up
to 10 minutes or until a door is opened.
