  12. WARNING NOTIFICATION FUNCTION (FOR TELEMATICS SYSTEM (w/ Telematics Transceiver for G-BOOK))

    Note


    • Before performing inspections or repairs which may cause warning messages or DTCs to occur, such as a simulation test or road test, it is necessary to activate warning notification restraint mode so that the G-BOOK center does not recognize the warnings as real ones.

    • Warning notification restraint mode can be entered by using the GTS or operating the remote touch.

    Tech Tips

    The warning notification function sends a warning on signal, received from the combination meter assembly via CAN communication, to the G-BOOK center using the telematics transceiver if a warning is displayed in the vehicle due to a vehicle malfunction.

  13. STRICT PROHIBITION OF MANUAL EMERGENCY CALL USING EMERGENCY CALL SERVICE (FOR TELEMATICS SYSTEM (w/ Telematics Transceiver for G-BOOK))


    1. Do not make an emergency call when not in emergency situations. For inspections, use the manual maintenance check.

      Note


      • If the emergency call service is used to connect to the G-BOOK center when not in an emergency situation, an unnecessary workload will be generated at the G-BOOK center. This may cause a delayed response by the G-BOOK center to other emergency calls.

      • If emergency vehicles are dispatched due to an accidental operation of the emergency call switch, you may be charged or punished according to related laws.

    2. If the emergency call switch is accidentally operated;


      1. If the emergency call switch is accidentally operated, contact the G-BOOK center to tell them that the call was made by mistake.

      2. An emergency call cannot be halted or finished from the vehicle. Only the G-BOOK center can halt or finish the call.

      3. If the G-BOOK center cannot be informed that the call was made by mistake, the center will report to authorities, emergency facilities and dealerships in compliance with its agreements. As a result, emergency vehicles may be dispatched.

  14. ALARM NOTIFICATION FUNCTION (FOR TELEMATICS SYSTEM (w/ Telematics Transceiver for G-BOOK))


    1. If the theft deterrent system is activated, the G-BOOK center makes a phone call to the customer.

      Note


      • When servicing the vehicle, make sure that the vehicle does not experience any conditions that could cause a telephone call to be made by a G-BOOK operator.

      • Before performing inspections or repairs which may activate the alarm notification function, be sure to inform the customer that they may receive a telephone call from a G-BOOK operator.

      Tech Tips

      The alarm notifications can be canceled via multi-display screen.

  15. STRICT PROHIBITION OF MANUAL EMERGENCY CALL USING EMERGENCY CALL SERVICE (FOR TELEMATICS SYSTEM (w/ Telematics Transceiver except G-BOOK))


    1. Do not make emergency calls in non-emergency situations. When performing an inspection, use the manual maintenance check.

      Note


      • If the emergency call service is used to connect to the PSAP in a non-emergency situation, an unnecessary workload will be generated at the PSAP. This may cause a delayed response by the PSAP to other emergency calls.

      • If emergency vehicles are dispatched due to an accidental operation of the emergency call switch, you may be charged or punished according to local law.

    2. If the emergency call switch is accidentally operated:


      1. Contact the PSAP to tell them that the call was made by mistake.

      2. An emergency call cannot be halted or finished from the vehicle. Only the PSAP can halt or finish an emergency call.

      3. If the PSAP cannot be informed that the emergency call was made by mistake, the center will report an emergency to authorities, emergency facilities and dealerships in compliance with its agreements. As a result, emergency vehicles may be dispatched.

  16. FOR VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH CATALYTIC CONVERTER

    CAUTION:

    If a large amount of unburned gasoline or gasoline vapors flow into the converter, it may cause converter overheating and create a fire hazard. To prevent this, observe the following precautions:


    1. Use only unleaded gasoline.

    2. Avoid performing unnecessary spark tests.


      1. Perform a spark test only when absolutely necessary. Perform this test as rapidly as possible.

      2. While testing, never race the engine unless instructed.

    3. Avoid a prolonged engine compression measurement. Engine compression measurements must be performed as rapidly as possible.

    4. Do not run the engine when the fuel tank is nearly empty. This may cause the engine to misfire and create an extra load on the converter.
