Tilt/telescopic steering  - Pre-driving checks and adjustments - Infiniti JX Owners Manual - Infiniti JX

WARNING
● Do not adjust the steering wheel while driving. You could lose control of your vehicle and cause an accident.
● Do not adjust the steering wheel any closer to you than is necessary for proper steering operation and comfort.

The drivers air bag inflates with great force. If you are unrestrained, leaning forward, sitting sideways or out of position in any way, you are at greater risk of injury or death in a crash. You may also receive serious or fatal injuries from the air bag if you are up against it when it inflates. Always sit back against the seatback and as far away as practical from the steering wheel. Always use the seat belts.

Tilt and telescopic operation

To adjust the steering wheel move the switch 1 in the following directions:

To adjust the steering wheel move the switch 1 in the following directions:

● Adjust the steering wheel forward or backward in direction 3 to the desired telescopic position.
● Adjust the steering wheel up or down in direction 2 to the desired tilt position.

CAUTION
For vehicles with automatic drive positioner:

Failure to reset the tilt and telescoping functions of the steering wheel after the vehicles battery has been discharged may result in the poor position for the driver.

For vehicles with automatic drive positioner: Both the tilt and telescopic steering operation must be reset after the vehicles battery has been discharged in order to prevent the tilt and telescopic operation from locking in one position. When the battery has been recharged or replaced, perform the following:

● For telescopic operation: Adjust the switch 1 so the steering wheel moves to the most forward and backward position 3 that can be reached.
● For tilt operation: Adjust the switch 1 so the steering wheel moves to the highest position 2 that can be reached.

Performing these operations resets the range of the steering wheels tilt and telescopic function.

Entry/Exit function

The automatic drive positioner system will make the steering wheel move up automatically when the drivers door is opened and the ignition switch is in the LOCK position. This lets the driver get into and out of the seat more easily. The steering wheel moves back into position when the drivers door is closed and the ignition switch is pushed.

For more information, see Automatic drive positioner in this section.
