19. Trip Odometer Button
Press and release this button to toggle between the odometer and trip odometer displays. This button is also used to reset the trip odometer to 0. While the display is showing the trip odometer, press and hold the button for approximately 2 seconds and the display will reset to 0.
20. Odometer/Trip Odometer
The odometer shows the total distance the vehicle has been driven.
The odometer will "illuminate" when the driver’s door has been opened, and will remain on for 20 seconds after exiting the vehicle.
U.S. federal regulations require that upon transfer of vehicle ownership, the seller certify to the purchaser the correct mileage that the vehicle has been driven. Therefore, if the odometer reading is changed during repair or replacement, be sure to keep a record of the reading before and after the service so the correct mileage can be determined.
The trip odometer shows individual mileage up to 999.9 miles (1 600 km). To switch from odometer to trip odometer, press the trip odometer button.
21.Anti-Lock (ABS) Warning Light
After ignition is turned on, illuminates to indi cate function check at vehicle start-up. If light remains on after start-up or comes on and stays on at road speeds, it may indicate that the ABS has detected a malfunction or has become inoperative. The system reverts to standard non-anti-lock brakes.
If both the red BRAKE warning light and the amber ABS warning light are on, see your dealer immediately. Refer to "Anti-Lock Brake System" in Section 5 of this manual.
22. Brake Warning Light
After ignition is turned on, illuminates to in dicate function check at vehicle start-up. Indicates parking brake is applied. If the light stays on when the parking brake is off, it indicates a possible brake system fluid leak or low pressure level, see your authorized dealer immediately.

RADIO GENERAL INFORMATION
Radio Broadcast Signals
Your new radio will provide excellent reception under most operating conditions. Like any system, however, car radios have performance limitations, due to mobile operation and natural phenomena, which might lead you to believe your sound system is malfunctioning. To help you understand and save you concern about these "apparent" malfunctions, you must understand a point or two about the transmission and reception of radio signals.
Two Types of Signals
There are two basic types of radio signals... AM or Amplitude Modulation, in which the transmitted sound causes the amplitude, or height, of the radio waves to vary... and FM or Frequency Modulation, in which the frequency of the wave is varied to carry the sound.
Radio waves may pick up electrical disturbances during transmission. They mainly affect the wave amplitude, and thus remain a part of the AM reception. They interfere very little with the frequency variations that carry the FM signal.
AM sound is based on wave amplitude, so AM reception can be disrupted by such things as lightning, power lines and neon signs.
Because FM transmission is based on frequency variations, interference that consists of amplitude variations can be filtered out, leaving the reception relatively clear, which is the major feature of FM radio.

Radio Security Code
This radio is equipped with an anti-theft feature which requires that a four digit code number be entered whenever the power supply is interrupted (such as a disconnected battery). The four digit code can be found on the last page of this manual. Please remove this page from the manual and store it in a safe place outside of the vehicle.
To enter the code, turn the key to the ON or ACC position and press the ON/VOL control. The word CODE will appear on the display. Enter your four digit code by pressing the appropriate preset buttons in sequence. Your radio is now ready for basic operation.
If an invalid code is entered into the radio, the radio will allow two more attempts. After a third attempt of entering an invalid code, the radio will go into a lockup mode. This is to prevent continuous attempts at entering the wrong code until the right code is found.
Once a radio is in this lockup mode, it must be in a state where battery is applied for approximately 30 minutes. During this time, if the radio is on, the display will show "WAIT". After approximately 30 minutes, (radio on) radio will display "CODE" thereby again querying the operator for the 4 digit anti-theft code.
