If the engine still fails to start, press the accelerator to the floor and try again; this will allow the engine to crank with the fuel shut off in case the engine is flooded with fuel.

21 DRIVING Braking system Four-Wheel Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) Four-Wheel Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) –This vehicle is equipped with a four-wheel anti-lock braking system (ABS). This system helps you maintain steering control during emergency stops by keeping the brakes from locking. Noise from the ABS pump motor and brake pedal pulsation may be observed during ABS braking and the brake pedal may suddenly travel a little farther as soon as the ABS braking is done and normal brake operation resumes. These are normal characteristics of the ABS and should be no reason for concern. ABS Warning Lamp ABS Warning Lamp –The ABS lamp in the instrument cluster illuminates when the ignition is turned on. If the light does not illuminate during start up, remains on or flashes, the ABS may be disabled and needs to be reported to the FAM. Using ABS Using ABS –When hard braking is required, apply continuous force on the brake pedal; do not pump the brake as this will reduce the effectiveness of the ABS and will increase your stopping distance. The ABS will be activated immediately, allowing you to retain full steering control during hard braking on slippery surfaces. However, the ABS does not decrease stopping distance.

22 DRIVING Four-Wheel Drive (4WD) Operation When four-wheel drive (4WD) is engaged, power is supplied to all four wheels through a transfer case. 4WD can be selected when additional traction is desired. When four-wheel drive (4WD) is engaged, power is supplied to all four wheels through a transfer case. 4WD can be selected when additional traction is desired. 4WD operation is not recommended on dry pavement. Doing so could result in difficult disengagement of the transfer case, increased tire wear and decreased fuel economy. 4WD operation is not recommended on dry pavement. Doing so could result in difficult disengagement of the transfer case, increased tire wear and decreased fuel economy. For proper operation, make sure that each hub is fully engaged and that both hubs are set to the same position (both set to LOCK or both set to AUTO). To engage LOCK, turn the hub locks completely clockwise; to engage AUTO, turn the hub locks completely counterclockwise. For proper operation, make sure that each hub is fully engaged and that both hubs are set to the same position (both set to LOCK or both set to AUTO). To engage LOCK, turn the hub locks completely clockwise; to engage AUTO, turn the hub locks completely counterclockwise.

Sends power to the rear wheels only –4h (4WD High) - For winter and off-road conditions. Sends power to the front and rear wheels –4L (4WD Low) - For low-speed off-road applications that require extra power such as steep grades, deep sand or pulling a boat out of the water. Sends power to the front and rear wheels. The electronic shift is designed to allow up to 45 seconds before a shift command is performed. The electronic shift is designed to allow up to 45 seconds before a shift command is performed. Note: Some noise may be heard as the 4WD system shifts or engages. This is normal.
