Use the hood prop rod to secure the hood in the open position. Place the upper end of the prop rod in the hole on the underside of the hood.

CAUTION!
To prevent possible damage:

• Before closing hood, make sure the hood prop rod is fully seated into its storage retaining clips.

• Lower the hood to approximately 6 in (15.2 cm) above the closed position and drop the hood to latch it.

• Never drive your vehicle unless the hood is fully closed, with both latches engaged.

WARNING!
Be sure the hood is fully latched before driving your vehicle. If the hood is not fully latched, it could open when the vehicle is in motion and block your vision.

Failure to follow this warning could result in serious injury or death.
