Do not put any part of your body under the vehicle supported by a jack. Personal injury may occur.
Do not start or run the engine while your vehicle is supported by the jack.
Stop the vehicle on a level firm ground, firmly set the parking brake and put the transmission in “P” (automatic) or reverse (manual).

When raising the vehicle, do not place any objects on top of or underneath the jack.
