Fuel, engine coolant, oil and exhaust gas leakage
Look under the body of your vehicle to check for fuel, engine coolant, oil and exhaust gas leaks.
► If you see a suspicious fuel leak or if you smell fuel, do not operate the vehicle; we recommend you to call for assistance.
Exterior and interior lamp operation
Operate the combination lamp switch to check that all lamps are functioning properly.
If the lamps do not illuminate, the probable cause is a blown fuse or defective lamp bulb. Check the fuses first. If there is no blown fuses, check the lamp bulbs.
For information regarding the inspection and replacement of the fuses and the lamp bulbs, refer to “Fuses” and “Replacement of lamp bulbs”.
If the fuses and bulbs are all OK, we recommend you to have your vehicle checked and repaired.
Meter, gauge and indicator/warning lamps operation
Run the engine to check the operation of all meters, gauges, and indicator/warning lamps.
If there is anything wrong, we recommend you to have your vehicle inspected.
Hinges and latches lubrication
Check all latches and hinges, and, if necessary, have them lubricated.
