Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) off indicator light (if so equipped)

The light comes on when the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) off switch is pushed to OFF. This indicates the VDC system and Traction Control System (TCS) are not operating.

墌 07.7.25/Z33-D/V5.0 墍

This light also comes on when the ignition switch is turned to the ON position. The light will turn off if the VDC system is operational. When the VDC off indicator light and slip indi- cator light come on with the VDC system turned on, this light alerts the driver to the fact that the system’s fail-safe mode is operating, that is the VDC system may not be functioning properly. Have the system checked by a NISSAN dealer. If a malfunction occurs in the system, the VDC system function will be canceled but the vehicle is still driveable. For additional information, see “Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system” in the “5. Starting and driving” section of this manual.

Soft top indicator light (Roadster models)

This light illuminates when the soft top is being operated or it is stopped before reaching a full open/close state. When the top is fully opened, the light will turn off. When the top is fully closed, the light will flash. The soft top can be moved with the soft top operating switch only under all of the following conditions: 쐌 When the vehicle is stopped. 쐌 When the foot brake pedal is depressed. 쐌 When the ignition switch is ON.

CAUTION

Operate the soft top with the engine running to prevent a discharged battery.

When the soft top is in motion, and any of the above conditions are discontinued or the pas- senger power seat switches (on the cushion or the seatback) are operated, the top will stop moving. Remove your hand from the operating switch, and push it again under the above conditions until the top is fully opened or closed. The soft top indicator light will turn off when the top open operation is completely finished. When closing the top, the light, which is illuminated, will begin to flash when the top close operation is completely finished. Securely engage the top to the vehicle by operating the top latch lever. The light will turn off. If the soft top indicator light flashes with the ignition switch ON (whether the top is operated or not, and when the top is engaged), it may indicate the electric soft top control unit is not functioning properly. Have your vehicle checked by a NISSAN dealer as soon as possible. For more details about top the electric soft operation, see “Soft top” in the “3. Pre-driving checks and adjustments” section.

Turn signal/hazard indicator lights

The light flashes when the turn signal switch lever or hazard switch is turned on. AUDIBLE REMINDERS Key reminder chime The chime will sound if the driver’s side door is opened while the key is left in the ignition switch (ignition switch is turned off).

SECURITY SYSTEMS

SIC2132

Your vehicle has two types of security systems, as follows: 쐌 Vehicle Security System 쐌 NISSAN Vehicle Immobilizer System The security condition will be shown by the security indicator light. VEHICLE SECURITY SYSTEM The vehicle security system provides visual and audible alarm signals if someone opens the doors or rear hatch/trunk lid when the system is armed. It is not, however, a motion detection type system that activates 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 the vehicle 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 sup- ply stores and specialty shops. A NISSAN dealer may also offer such equipment. Check with your insurance company to see if you may be eligible for discounts for various theft protection fea- tures.

NISSAN VEHICLE IMMOBILIZER SYSTEM The NISSAN Vehicle Immobilizer System will not allow the engine to start without the use of the registered key.

If the engine fails to start using the registered key (for example, when interference is caused by another registered key, an automated toll road device or automated payment device on the key ring), restart the engine using the following procedures:

Instruments and controls 2-19

墌 07.7.25/Z33-D/V5.0 墍

1. Leave the ignition switch in the ON position

for approximately 5 seconds.

2. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF or LOCK position and wait approximately 10 seconds.

3. Repeat steps 1 and 2.

4. Restart the engine while holding the device (which may have caused the interference) separate from the registered key. If this procedure allows the engine to start, NISSAN recommends placing the registered key on a separate key ring to avoid interfer- ence from other devices.

HEADLIGHT AND TURN SIGNAL SWITCH XENON HEADLIGHTS

WARNING

HIGH VOLTAGE

쐌 When xenon headlights are on, they produce a high voltage. To prevent an electric shock, never attempt to modify or disassemble. Always have your xenon headlights replaced at a NISSAN dealer.

쐌 Xenon headlights provide consider- ably more light than conventional headlights. If they are not correctly aimed, they might temporarily blind an oncoming driver or the driver ahead of you and cause a serious accident. If headlights are not aimed correctly, immediately take your ve- hicle to a NISSAN dealer and have the headlights adjusted correctly.

When the xenon headlight is initially turned on, its brightness or color varies slightly. However, the color and brightness will soon stabilize.

2-24 Instruments and controls

쐌 The life of xenon headlights will be shortened by frequent on-off operation. It is generally desirable not to turn off
