Dinghy towing (front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive vehicles with 5at five- speed automatic transaxle) 1. Position and attach the vehicle behind the recreational vehicle. 2. Turn the ignition key to acc. 3. Turn fog lamps and all accessories off. Notice: start the engine and shift through all gear positions. The final shift must be “d” (drive) to “n” (neutral). Failure to perform this final shift may cause internal damage to the transaxle assembly. Never shift from “r” (reverse) to “n” (neutral) as the final shift, to avoid internal damage to transaxle. 4. Perform transaxle lubrication procedure: set the parking brake. Start the engine. Apply and hold the brake pedal until the end of step 4.5. To ensure proper automatic transaxle lubrication, shift transaxle through “p” (park), “r” (reverse), “n” (neutral), “d” (drive – automatic overdrive), “i” (intermediate), “l” (low). 4.5. Shift to “d” (drive), then to “n” (neutral) and let the engine run for 3 minutes. If you tow or tow and park the vehicle for more than seven hours in one day, you must repeat the procedure. 4.6. Turn off the engine, and leave the key in the acc position. 4.7. Release the parking brake. 4.1. 4.2. 4.3. 4.4.
