Diesel only! Please be prepared this truck gets about 10 mpg and is loud and slow: 0-60 in about 30 seconds!
Starting her engine is easy once you’ve done it once, and you can watch me do it in my [quick start video, which I can text you the link to open easily: https://youtu.be/qHLMOSFufNs]. But if you’re sitting in the drivers seat genuinely unclear on what to do, you haven’t geeked out on humvee youtube videos enough! As a refresher though: start by inserting the ignition key fully (grooves face down) and turning the key to the right 45* degrees. Meanwhile, shift to N - neutral. Then, turn her toggle switch to the right from ENG. STOP to RUN. Now, you must WAIT approx. 12 seconds for the WAIT light above to dim off, and ONLY then may you turn right to START until she turns over. Switch returns to run position and to shut her off, you turn left to ENG. STOP. Then, you can turn and remove the ignition key. Always fully engage the handbrake (as there is no P for parking) it releases when you pull the safety collar up. Finally, make sure the radio is off by holding the power button approx. 2 seconds until it dims gray. Blue means it’s been left on and can eventually waste the battery. If that happens, you’ll need to jumpstart the front battery which is under the passenger seat (jump box included, but not always charged. Once running, idle or drive for 30 minutes. Remember: always make sure to fill with diesel!
