Carry out the following procedures if the tires spin or the vehicle becomes stuck in mud, dirt, or snow.
Stop the engine. Set the parking brake and shift the shift lever to “P”.
Remove the mud, snow or sand from around the rear wheels.
Place wood, stones or some other material under the rear wheels to help provide traction.
Restart the engine.
Shift the shift lever to “D” or “R” position and release the parking brake. Then, while exercising caution, depress the accelerator pedal.
Press to turn off Active TRAC.
If you choose to push the vehicle back and forth to free it, make sure the surrounding area is clear, to avoid striking other vehicles, objects or people. The vehicle may also lunge forward or lunge back suddenly as it becomes free.
Use extreme caution.
Be careful not to shift the shift lever with the accelerator pedal depressed.
This may lead to unexpected rapid acceleration of the vehicle that may cause an accident resulting in death or serious injury.
