Buick Park Avenue - 1994 Fuse Box Diagram

If
you set off the alarm by accident, unlock any door
with your
key.
You can also turn off the alarm by using the Keyless
Entry System, if
you
have it. The alarm
won’t
stop
if
you try
to
unlock a door any
other way.
How
to Test The
Alarm
The alarm can be tested by first having the driver’s
window down. Activate the system by locking
the
doors
with
the
power door lock switch
or
the Remote Keyless
Entry System. Get out
of
the car and close the door and
wait for
the
SECURITY
light to
go
out. Then reach
in
through the window, unlock the door with the manual
door
lock,
and open the door. This should set off the
alarm.
If the alarm does not sound when
it
should, check to
see
if the horn works. The horn fuse may be blown. To
replace the
fuse,
see “Fuses and Circuit Breakers”
in
the
Index.
To
reduce the possibility of theft, always
activatethe
theft deterrent system when leaving your vehicle.
Your vehicle is equipped with the [email protected]
(Personalized Automotive Security System) theft
deterrent system. PASS-Key%
is
a passive theft
deterrent system. This means you don’t have to do
anything different
to
arm
or
disarm the system. It works
when
you insert or
remove the
key
from the ignition.
[email protected] uses a resistor pellet in the ignition key
that matches a
decoder
in
your vehicle.
77
When the PASS-Key%
system senses that someone is
using the wrong key,
it
shuts down the vehicle’s starter
and fuel
systems. For about three minutes,
the
starter
won’t
work and
fuel
won’t go to the engine. If someone
tries to start your vehicle again or uses another key
during this time, the vehicle will not start. This
discourages someone from randomly trying different
keys with different resistor pellets in an attempt to make
a match.
The ignition key must be clean and dry before it’s
inserted in the ignition or
the
engine may
not start. If the
engine
does not start and the “SECURITY’’ light comes
on, the key may be dirty
or
wet. Turn the ignition off.
Clean and dry the key.
Wait about three minutes and try
again.
The security light may remain on during this
time. If
the
starter still won’t work, and the key appears
to
be clean and dry, wait about three minutes and
try
the
other ignition key.
At this time, you
may also want to
check the fuse (see “Fuses and Circuit Breakers”
in
the
Index). If
the
starter won’t work with the other key,
your
vehicle needs service. If your vehicle does start, the first
ignition key may be faulty. See your
Buick dealer or
a
locksmith who can service the [email protected]
If
you accidentally use a key that has a damaged or
missing resistor pellet, the starter won’t
work and the
“SECURITY” light
will
flash. But
you
don’t have to
wait three minutes before trying one of the other ignition
keys.
See your Buick dealer or
a
locksmith who can service
the [email protected] have a new
key made.
If you’re ever driving and the “SECURITY” light comes
on and stays on,
you
will
be able to restart your engine
if
you
turn
it
off. Your PASS-Key%
system, however, is
not working properly
and
must
be
serviced by your
Buick dealer. Your vehicle is
not protected by the
PASS-Key% system.
If
you lose or damage a [email protected] ignition key, see
your Buick dealer or
a locksmith who can service
new
key made.

A green arrow on
the
instrument panel
will
flash
in
the
direction of the turn
To
signal a lane change,
just raise or lower the lever
until
the green arrow starts to
flash. Hold
it
there
until
you complete your lane change. The lever will return by
itself when
you release
it.
As
you signal a turn or a
lane
change,
if
the arrows
don’t
flash but just stay on, a signal bulb may be burned out
and
other
drivers won’t see your turn signal.
If a bulb is burned out, replace it to help avoid an
accident. If the green arrows don’t go on at all when
you
signal a
turn,
check the fuse (see “Fuses
in
the Index)
and for burned-out bulbs.
If
you have a trailer towing option
with
added wiring for
the trailer lights, a different turn signal flasher is used.
With this flasher installed, the signal indicator
will
flash
even
if
a turn signal bulb is burned out. Check the front
and rear turn signal lights regularly to make sure they
are working.
Operation
of
Lights
Although your vehicle’s lighting system (headlights,
parking lights, fog lamps, side marker lights and
taillights) meets all applicable federal lighting
requirements, certain states and provinces may apply
their own lighting regulations that may require special
attention before you operate these lights.
For example, some jurisdictions may require that
you
operate your fog lamps only when
your lower beam
lights are
also
on,
or
that headlights be turned on
whenever you must
use
your
windshield wipers. In
addition, most jurisdictions prohibit driving solely
with
parking lights, especially at dawn or
dusk.
It
is
recommended that you check with
your own state or
provincial highway authority for
applicable lighting
regulations.

Your vehicle has an
air
bag
system. Before attempting to
add
anything
electrical
to your Buick, see “Servicing
Your Air Bag-Equipped Buick” in the Index.
Fuses and
Circuit Breakers
The wiring circuits in your
car
are protected from short
circuits
by
a
combination
of fuses,
circuit breakers and
fusible
thermal links in the wiring itself.
The
fuse panel is located under the instrument panel,
next to
the
parking brake.
L
Remove the cover to
accessthe fuses.
To
put the cover
on, insert the tabs into the lower part of the fuse panel
and snap it in place.
277
Look at the silver-colored band inside the fuse. If the
band is broken or melted, replace the fuse. Be sure
you
replace
a bad fuse with a new one of the identical size
and rating.
There
are additional fuses located behind the right sound
insulator panel on the passenger side. If these require
service, see your Buick dealer.
Maxifuse/Relay
Center
To check the fuses in this underhood fuse center, turn
the two knobs
1/4
turn counterclockwise and remove the
cover. There is a chart inside the cover that explains the
features and controls governed by each fuse and relay.
The PASS-Key
fuse
is located in the right side relay
center.
Headlights
The headlight wiring is protected by
a
circuit breaker
in
the underhood fuse center.
An
electrical overload
will
cause the lights to
go on and off, or
in
some cases to
remain off. If this happens, have your headlight wiring
checked right away.
Windshield
Wipers
The windshield wiper motor is protected by a circuit
breaker and a fuse. If
the
motor overheats due to heavy
snow,
etc., the wiper will
stop
until the motor cools. If
the
overload is caused by some electrical problem and
not
snow,
etc.,
be sure
to get it fixed.
Power
Windows and Other
Power
Options
Circuit breakers in the fuse panel protect the power
windows and other power accessories. When the current
load is too heavy, the circuit breaker opens and closes,
protecting the circuit until the problem
is
fixed or goes
away.
