• The engine is running.

• The shift lever is in any position other than P or N.

• The front-wheel drive control lever or switch is in L4.

• The driver’s door is closed.

Crawl Control is temporarily canceled when

Vehicle speed exceeds 15 mph (25 km/h). The Crawl Control indicator flashes until the vehicle speed is reduced.

Automatic system cancelation

In the following situations, the system will cease operation and a buzzer will sound to alert the driver. The Crawl Control indicator will flash until the system is turned off completely.

• When the shift lever is shifted to P or N

• When the front-wheel drive control lever or switch is shifted to H4

• When the driver’s door is opened

• When the system is malfunctioning

• When the brake system overheats

Stop the vehicle in a safe place. (There is no problem with continuing normal driving.)

• When the automatic transmission system overheats

Stop the vehicle in a safe place until the automatic transmission fluid temperature warning light goes off.

Sounds and vibrations caused by the Crawl Control system

• A sound may be heard from the engine compartment when the engine is started or just after the vehicle begins to move. This sound does not indicate that a malfunction has occurred in Crawl Control system.

• Either of the following conditions may occur when the Crawl Control system is operating. None of these indicates that a malfunction has occurred.

• Vibrations may be felt through the vehicle body and steering.

• A motor sound may be heard after the vehicle comes to a stop.


When using Crawl Control

• Do not overly rely on Crawl Control. This function does not extend the vehicle’s performance limitations. Always check the terrain thoroughly and drive safely.

• The recommended speed modes for the listed terrains  are only a reference. The selected mode may not be suitable to actual off-road conditions due to factors such as the type or unevenness of the terrain or the degree of incline. Check the actual terrain thoroughly and drive safely.

• After activating Crawl Control, make sure that the Crawl Control indicator comes on. If the indicator flashes, the vehicle is not under system control.

When driving on the following surfaces, the system may not be able to maintain a fixed low speed, which may result in an accident:

• Extremely steep inclines

• Extremely uneven surfaces

• Snow-covered roads, or other slippery surfaces
