check
with
your
dealer
first.
Some
electrical
equipment
can
damage
your

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.
Headlamp
Wiring
The headlamp wiring is protected by a
circuit breaker
in
the lamp switch. An electrical overload will cause the
lamps to
go
on and
off
or, in some cases,
to
remain
off.
If
this happens, have your headlamp system 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, have
it
fixed.
Power
Windows
and

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.

Fuses
and
Circuit
Breakers
. .
The wiring circuits in your vehicle
are protected from
short
circuits by a combination of fuses,
circuit breakers,
and fusible
thermal links in the wiring itself.
This
greatly reduces the chance
of
damape caused by
electrical
problems.
The
fuse panel is located inside the glove box, on
the left side.
To
change a
fuse, open the glove box. Pull down on
the
fuse
panel latch and open the door. Pull
the
fuse
straight out.
To identify and check
fuses,
refer to the Fuse
Usage chart.
Look
at the silver-colored band inside the fuse.
If
the
band is broken or melted, replace the fuse.
Be
sure
you
replace
abad fuse with a new one
of
the identical size
and rating.
