Starting the engine

Do not operate the starter motor continuously for more than 10 seconds.

Do not operate the starter motor continuously for more than 10 seconds.

If the engine fails to start after operating the starter for 5 to 10 seconds, wait for 10 seconds or more before trying again.

NOTE
It may be difficult to start the engine when the battery has been disconnected and reconnected (for maintenance or other purposes). This difficulty is caused by the electronically controlled throttles self-diagnosis function. To overcome it, keep the ignition switch in the ON position for approximately 10 seconds before starting the engine.

For non-turbo models, to protect the engine while the shift lever is in the neutral position (MT models)/select lever is in the P or N position (AT models), the engine is controlled so that the engine speed may not become too high even if the accelerator pedal is depressed hard.
