used for either the driver or front passenger seating position. See your INFINITI dealer for assistance if the extender is required.
Only INFINITI belt extenders, made by the same company which made the original equipment seat belts, should be used with the INFINITI seat belts. Adults and children who can use the standard seat belt should not use an extender. Such unnecessary use could result in serious personal injury in the event of an accident. Never use seat belt extenders to install child restraints. If the child restraint is not secured properly, the child could be seriously injured in a collision or a sudden stop.
After adjustment, release the adjustment button and try to move the shoulder belt anchor up and down to make sure it is securely fixed in position. The shoulder belt anchor height should be adjusted to the position best for you. Failure to do so may reduce the effectiveness of the entire restraint system and increase the chance or severity of injury in an accident.
A To adjust, push the button , and then move the shoulder belt anchor to the desired position, so that the belt passes over the center of the shoulder. The belt should be away from your face and neck, but not falling off of your shoulder. Release the button to lock the shoulder belt anchor into position.
SEAT BELT EXTENDERS
If, because of body size or driving position, it is not possible to properly fit the lapshoulder belt and fasten it, an extender is available. The extender adds approximately 8 in (200 mm) of length and may be

Then brush it, wipe with a cloth and allow it to dry in the shade. Do not allow the seat belts to retract until they are completely dry. If dirt builds up in the shoulder belt guide of the seat belt anchors, the seat belts may retract slowly. Wipe the shoulder belt guide with a clean, dry cloth. Periodically check to see that the seat belt and the metal components such as buckles, tongues, retractors, flexible wires and anchors work properly. If loose parts, deterioration, cuts or other damage on the webbing are found, the entire belt assembly should be replaced.

6. Check that the retractor is in the automatic locking mode by trying to pull more seat belt out of the retractor. If you cannot pull any more seat belt webbing out of the retractor, the retractor is in the automatic locking mode. 7. Check to make sure that the child restraint is properly secured prior to each use. If the seat belt is not locked, repeat steps 3 through 6. After the child restraint is removed and the seat belt is fully retracted, the automatic locking mode (child restraint mode) is canceled.
4. Allow the seat belt to retract. Pull up on the shoulder belt to remove any slack in the belt.
5. Before placing the child in the child restraint, use force to push the child restraint from side to side, and tug it forward to make sure that it is securely held in place. It should not move more than 1 inch (25 mm). If it does move more than 1 inch (25 mm), pull again on the shoulder belt to further tighten the child restraint. If unable to properly secure the restraint, move the restraint to another rear seating position and try again, or try a different child restraint. Not all child restraints fit in all types of vehicles.

SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM PRECAUTIONS ON SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM
This Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) section contains important information concerning the driver and passenger front impact supplemental air bags (INFINITI advanced air bag system), front seat sideimpact supplemental air bags, curtain side-impact air bags and front seat pretensioner seat belts. Supplemental front impact air bag system: The INFINITI advanced air bag system can help cushion the impact force to the face and chest of the driver and front passenger in certain frontal collisions. Supplemental side-impact air bag system: This system can help cushion the impact force to the chest area of the driver and front passenger in certain side impact collisions. The front seat side-impact supplemental air bags are designed to inflate on the side where the vehicle is impacted. Supplemental side-impact curtain air bag system: This system can help cushion the impact force to the head of occupants in front and rear outboard seating positions in certain side impact collisions. The curtain side-impact air bags are designed to inflate on the side where the vehicle is impacted. These supplemental restraint systems are designed to supplement the crash protection provided by the driver and passenger seat belts and are not a substitute for them. Seat belts should always be correctly worn and the occupant seated a suitable distance away from the steering wheel, instrument panel and door finishers. (See Seat belts earlier in this section for instructions and precautions on seat belt usage.) After turning the ignition key to the ON position, the supplemental air bag warning light illuminates. The supplemental air bag warning light will turn off after about 7 seconds if the systems are operational.
all vehicle occupants are seated and restrained properly. Using the passenger air bag status light, you can monitor when the front passenger air bag is automatically turned OFF with the seat occupied. The light will not illuminate when the front passenger seat is unoccupied. If an adult occupant is in the seat but the passenger air bag status light is illuminated indicating that the air bag is OFF, it could be that the person is a small adult, or is not sitting on the seat properly or is not using the seat belt properly. If a child restraint must be used in the front seat, the passenger air bag status light may or may not be illuminated, depending on the size of the child and the type of child restraint being used. If the status light is not lit (indicating that the air bag might inflate in a crash), it could be that the child restraint or seat belt is not being used properly. In rare cases, the passenger air bag status light will not illuminate even though the air bag is OFF. If such situations happen, properly position and restrain the occupant or child re-

straint. Otherwise reposition the occupant or child restraint in a rear seat. If you have any questions about whether your passenger air bag is working as designed, your dealer can use a special tool to confirm that it is working properly. The air bag system and passenger air bag status light will take a few seconds to register a change in the passenger seat status. For example, if a large adult who is sitting in the front passenger seat exits the vehicle, the passenger air bag status light will change from OFF to ON for a few seconds and then to OFF. This is normal system operation and does not indicate a malfunction. If a malfunction occurs in the front passenger air bag system, the supplemental air bag warning light , located in the meter and gauges area will blink. Have the system checked by an INFINITI dealer.
wheel pad or on the instrument panel. Also, do not place any objects between any occupant and the steering wheel or instrument panel. Such objects may become dangerous projectiles and cause injury if the supplemental front air bag inflates. Immediately after inflation, several front air bag system components will be hot. Do not touch them; you may severely burn yourself. No unauthorized changes should be made to any components or wiring of the supplemental air bag system. This is to prevent accidental inflation of the supplemental air bag or damage to the supplemental air bag system. Do not make unauthorized changes to your vehicles electrical system, suspension system or front end structure. This could affect proper operation of the supplemental front air bag system. Tampering with the supplemental air bag system may result in serious per
When the supplemental side air bag and curtain side-impact air bag inflate, a fairly loud noise may be heard, followed by release of smoke. This smoke is not harmful and does not indicate a fire. Care should be taken not to inhale it, as it may cause irritation and choking. Those with a history of a breathing condition should get fresh air promptly. Supplemental side air bags, along with the use of seat belts, help to cushion the impact force on the chest of the front occupants. Curtain side-impact air bags help to cushion the impact force to the head of occupants in the front and rear outboard seating positions. They can help save lives and reduce serious injuries. However, an inflating side air bag and curtain sideimpact air bag may cause abrasions or
When selling your vehicle, we request that you inform the buyer about the supplemental front air bag system and guide the buyer to the appropriate sections in this Owners Manual.

other injuries. Supplemental side air bags and curtain side-impact air bags do not provide restraint to the lower body. The seat belts should be correctly worn and the driver and passenger seated upright as far as practical away from the side air bag. Rear seat passengers should be seated as far away as practical from the door finishers and side roof rails. The side air bags and curtain side-impact air bag inflate quickly in order to help protect the out-ofposition occupants. Because of this, the force of the side air bag and curtain sideimpact air bag inflating can increase the risk of injury if the occupant is too close to, or is against, these air bag modules during inflation. The side air bag and curtain sideimpact air bag will deflate quickly after the collision is over. The supplemental side air bags and curtain side-impact air bags operate only when the ignition switch is in the ON or START positions. After turning the ignition key to the ON position, the supplemental air bag warning light illuminates. The supplemental air bag warning light will turn off after about 7 seconds if the system is operational.
Do not place any objects near the seatback of the front seats. Also, do not place any objects (an umbrella, bag, etc.) between the front door finisher and the front seat. Such objects may become dangerous projectiles and cause injury if the supplemental side air bag inflates. Right after inflation, several side air bag and curtain side-impact air bag system components will be hot. Do not touch them; you may severely burn yourself. No unauthorized changes should be made to any components or wiring of this side air bag and curtain air bag system. This is to prevent accidental inflation of the side air bag and curtain air bag or damage to the side air bag and curtain air bag system. Do not make unauthorized changes to your vehicles electrical system, suspension system or side panel. This could affect proper operation of the supplemental side air bag and curtain side
Operation The malfunction indicator lamp will come on in one of two ways: Malfunction indicator lamp on steady An emission control system malfunction has been detected. Check the fuel filler cap. If the fuel filler cap is loose or missing, tighten or install the cap and continue to drive the vehicle. The lamp should turn off after a few driving trips. If the lamp does not turn off after a few driving trips, have the vehicle inspected by an INFINITI dealer. You do not need to have your vehicle towed to the dealer. Malfunction indicator lamp blinking An engine misfire has been detected which may damage the emission control system. To reduce or avoid emission control system damage: a) Do not drive at speeds above 45 MPH (72 km/h). b) Avoid hard acceleration or deceleration. c) Avoid steep uphill grades. d) If possible, reduce the amount of cargo being hauled or towed.
The malfunction indicator lamp may stop blinking and come on steady. Have the vehicle inspected by an INFINITI dealer. You do not need to have your vehicle towed to the dealer.
Malfunction indicator lamp (MIL)
If the malfunction indicator lamp comes on steady or blinks while the engine is running, it may indicate a potential emission control malfunction. The malfunction indicator lamp may also come on steady if the fuel filler cap is loose or missing, or if the vehicle runs out of fuel. Check to make sure the fuel filler cap is installed and closed tightly, and that the vehicle has at least 3 US gallons (14 liters) of fuel in the fuel tank. After a few driving trips, the lamp should turn off if no other potential emission control system malfunction exists. If this indicator lamp comes on steady for 20 seconds and then blinks for 10 seconds when the engine is not running, it indicates that the vehicle is not ready for an emission control system inspection/ maintenance test. See Readiness for inspection/maintenance (I/M) test in the 9. Technical and consumer information section of this manual.
Continued vehicle operation without having the emission control system checked and repaired as necessary could lead to poor driveability, reduced fuel economy, and possible damage to the emission control system.
when a vehicle is moved or when a vibration occurs. The system helps deter vehicle theft but cannot prevent it, nor can it prevent the theft of interior or exterior vehicle components in all situations. Always secure your vehicle even if parking for a brief period. Never leave your keys in the vehicle, and always lock it when unattended. Be aware of your surroundings, and park in secure, well-lit areas whenever possible. Many devices offering additional protection, such as component locks, identification markers, and tracking systems, are available at auto supply stores and specialty shops. Your INFINITI dealer may also offer such equipment. Check with your insurance company to see if you may be eligible for discounts for various theft protection features.
Your vehicle has two types of security systems, as follows: Vehicle security INFINITI Vehicle Immobilizer System The security condition will be shown by the security indicator light.
How to arm the vehicle security system
1. Close all windows. The system can be armed even if the windows are open. 2. Remove the key from the ignition switch. 3. Close all doors, hood and trunk. Lock all doors. The doors can be locked with the electronic ignition key, power door lock switch or with the key.

4. Confirm that the security indicator light A comes on. The security indicator light glows for about 30 seconds and then blinks. The system is now armed. If, during this 30 second time period, the door or trunk lid is unlocked with the electronic ignition key or the key, or the ignition key is turned to the ACC or ON position, the system will not be armed. Even when the driver and/or passengers are in the vehicle, the system will be armed with all doors, hood, and trunk lid locked and ignition key off. When turning the ignition to ACC, the system will be disarmed.
Push the LDW switch again or restart the engine to turn the system on. Modes can be changed to automatic mode or manual mode by pushing and holding the LDW switch for more than 4 seconds while the LDW system ON indicator is off. See Lane departure warning (LDW) system in the 5. Starting and driving section.
The Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system will blink an indicator light on the instrument panel and sound a chime to alert the driver if the vehicle is traveling close to either the left or the right of a traveling lane with detectable lane markers. The system comes on automatically in its automatic mode when the ignition switch is pushed to the ON position. The LDW sys2 tem ON indicator will illuminate. To cancel the LDW system, push the LDW 1 switch to turn off the system. The LDW 2 system ON indicator will go off.

Set the switch to the SPORT position when you desire a firm feeling all the time.
B AUTO MODE
Set the switch to the AUTO position for normal driving. The damping force will automatically adjust according to the road surface and driving conditions.
The active damper suspension controls damping force and helps minimize the movement of the vehicle body. It helps stable driving when the vehicle moves up and down on large rolling roads or when the vehicle body leans during cornering with a high centrifugal force. The damping force of the shock absorbers can be adjusted to the level you desire. Set the switch to the position you desire while the ignition switch is ON.
The vehicle should be driven with the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) System ON for most driving conditions. If the vehicle is stuck in mud or snow, the VDC system reduces the engine output to reduce wheel spin. The engine speed will be reduced even if the accelerator is depressed to the floor. If maximum engine power is needed to free a stuck vehicle, turn the VDC system off.

The system should respond correctly to all voice commands without difficulty. If problems are encountered, try the following solutions. Where the solutions are listed by number, try each solution in turn, starting with number 1, until the problem is resolved.
Symptom Solution 1. Ensure that the command is valid. See List of voice commands earlier in this section. 2. Ensure that the command is spoken after the tone. 3. Speak clearly without pausing between words and at a level appropriate to the ambient noise level in the vehicle. System fails to interpret the command correctly. 4. Ensure that the ambient noise level is not excessive (for example, windows open or defroster on). NOTE: If it is too noisy to use the phone, it is likely that the voice commands will not be recognized. 5. If more than one command was said at a time, try saying the commands separately. 6. If the system consistently fails to recognize commands, the voice training procedure should be carried out to improve the recognition response for the speaker. See Speaker adaptation (SA) mode earlier in this section. The system consistently selects the wrong entry from the phone book. 1. Ensure that the phone book entry name requested matches what was originally stored. This can be confirmed by using the List Names command. See Phone book earlier in this section. 2. Replace one of the names being confused with a new name.
Monitor, climate, audio and voice-activated control systems 4-53
INFINITI VOICE RECOGNITION SYSTEM
The INFINITI Voice Recognition System provides a safe and convenient way of controlling vehicle systems such as the audio, climate control and navigation (if so equipped). The system is controlled by the TALK switch located on the steering wheel. Voice commands are picked up by a microphone. When giving a command, voice feedback will be heard through the speaker, and messages will be shown on the display. Voice feedback can be turned off. Personal directories of nametags for radio station presets can be created, and spoken command help is provided. On-line help (general such as Help, and more specific such as Help Radio) Speak in a natural voice without pausing between words.

The GVW must not exceed GVWR or GAWR as specified on the
TOWING A TRAILER
Your engine, axle or other parts could be damaged. For the first 500 miles (800 km) that you tow a trailer, do not drive over 50 MPH (80 km/h) and do not make starts at full throttle. This helps the engine and other parts of your vehicle wear in at the heavier loads.
MAXIMUM LOAD LIMITS Maximum trailer loads
Never allow the total trailer load to exceed the value specified in the Towing Load/Specification Chart found later in this section. The total trailer load equals trailer weight plus its cargo weight. Towing loads greater than specified or using improper towing equipment could adversely affect vehicle handling, braking and performance. The ability of your vehicle to tow a trailer is not only related to the maximum trailer loads, but also the places you plan to tow. Tow weights appropriate for level highway driving may have to be reduced on very steep grades or in low traction situations (for example, on slippery boat ramps).
Overloading or improper loading of a trailer and its cargo can adversely affect vehicle handling, braking and performance and may lead to accidents.
Your new vehicle was designed to be used primarily to carry passengers and cargo. Remember that towing a trailer will place additional loads on your vehicles engine, drive train, steering, braking and other systems. An INFINITI Towing Guide (U.S. only) is available on the website at www.infiniti.com. This guide includes information on trailer towing capability and the special equipment reguired for towing.
Vehicle damage resulting from improper towing procedures are not covered by INFINITI warranties.
Do not tow a trailer or haul a heavy load for the first 500 miles (800 km).
Keep the tongue load between 9 and 11%
9-18 Technical and consumer information
of the total trailer load within the maximum tongue load limits shown in the following Towing Load/Specification chart. If the tongue load becomes excessive, rearrange cargo to allow for proper tongue load.
