Buick LeSabre - 1996 Fuse Box Diagram

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
transmitter.
Get
out of the
car,
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
alarrn.
If
the
alarm
does
not
sound when it should,
check
to
see
if
the
hornworks. 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 activate
the
theft-deterrent
system
when
leaving
your vehicle.
I1
Your vehicle
is
equipped
with
the
PASS-Key
11
(Personalized Automotive
Security
System)
theft-deterrent
system.
PASS,-Key
II
is a passive
theft-deterrent system.
It works when you insert
or remove the
key
from
the
ignition.
PASS-Key
11
uses a resistor
pellet
in
the
ignition
key
that matches a decoder in your vehicle.
When
the
PASS-Key
II
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.
2-15
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
another 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 PASS-Key
11.
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 another
ignition key.
See your Buick dealer
or a locksmith who can service
the PASS-Key
I1
to have
a
new key made.
If you’re ever
driving and 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 I1 system,
however,
is
not working properly and must be serviced
by your Buick dealer. Your vehicle is not protected by
the PASS-Key I1 system.
If
you lose or damage a PASS-Key
I1
ignition key, see
your Buick dealer or a locksmith who can service
PASS-Key
I1
to
have a new key made.
If
a
bulb
is
burned out,
replace
it
to
help
avoid an
accident.
If
the
arrows don’t go
on
at
all
when
you
signal
a
turn,
check
the
fuse
(see
Fuses
and
Circuit
Breakers”
in
the
Index)
and for burned-out bulbs.
lbrn Signal On Chime
If
your
turn
signal
is
left
on for more than
3/4

Electrical
System
Add-on Electrical
Equipment
I
NOTICE:
Don’t
add
anything
electrical
to
your
Buick
unless
you
check
with
your
dealer
first.
Some
electrical
equipment can damage
your
vehicle
and the damage
wouldn’t
be
covered
by
your
warranty.
Some add-on electrical
equipment
can
keep
other components from
workingas
they
should.
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
an intern a1 circl
ui
t
breaker. 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
an internal
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, be sure to have
it
fixed.
Power
Windows
and
Other
Power
Accessories
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.
MaxifusedRelay
Center
To
check the fuses in this underhood fuse center, turn
the two knobs one-quarter turn counterclockwise and
loosen the metal wing nut on the passenger side of the
cover. Then remove the cover. The inside of the cover
has a chart that explains the features and controls
governed
by
each fuse and relay.
6-58
Fuses
and
Circuit
Breakers
The wiring circuits in your vehicle are protected from
short
circuits by a combination of fuses,
circuitbreakers
and fusible thermal links. This greatly reduces the
chance
of
damage caused by electrical problems.
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.
If
you
ever have a problem on the road and don’t have a
spare
fuse, you can borrow one that has the same
amperage. Just pick some feature of your vehicle that
you
can get along without
--
like the
radio
or
cigarette
lighter
--
and use its fuse, if it
is
the correct amperage.
Replace it as soon as
you can.
There are two fuse blocks in your vehicle: the driver’s
side and passenger’s
side
fuse
blocks.
Driver’s
Side
Fuse
Block
The driver’s side fuse block is
to
the left
of
the steering
wheel, under the instrument panel.
Snap off the cover
to
reveal
the
fuses. You’ll
find
a
fuse
puller clipped to the inside of the cover. Place the wide
end of the fuse puller over the plastic end of the fuse.
Squeeze the ends over the fuse and pull
it
out.
Spare
fuses are located in the slots labeled “Spare” on
the following
chart.
When finished, replace the cover by snapping
it
back up
into place.
