Just
close
your doors
and
turn on the ignition. All of the
doors will lock when
you
move your shift lever
out of
PARK
(P)
or NEUTRAL (N). All doors will unlock
automatically when the ignition is turned off.
If someone needs to get out while
the
vehicle
is running,
have that
person
use the manual or power lock. When
the
door is closed again, it will lock
automatically as long as
the shift lever is
out
of
PARK
(P)
or NEUTRAL (N)
and
the ignition
is on. Note that
the door must
be opened,
then closed, or the door will

If
you
don’t .want the doors
to

Parking

If
you park in
a
lot where someone will be watching
your vehicle, it’s best to lock it up and take your keys.
But what if
you have to leave your ignition key? What if
you
have to leave something valuable in your vehicle?

or

Your vehicle
is
equipped
with
the
PASS-Key I1
(Personalized Automotive
Security System)
theft-deterrent system.
PASS-Key I1 is a passive
theft-deterrent system. It
works when
you insert or
remove
the
key from
the
ignition.
PASS-Key I1 uses a resistor pellet
in
the ignition key
that matches
a
decoder
in
your vehicle.
When the PASS-Key I1 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 is 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.
2-8
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
for
burned-out bulbs and check
the
fuse
(see
Fuses and Circuit Breakers’’ in
the
Index).
A
chime will sound
if
you leave
your turn signal on for
more than 1/2 mile
(0.8
km).
Headlamp
High/Low
Beam
To change your headlamps
from low beam to high
beam, or high
to
low, pull
the multifunction
lever all
the way toward
you. Then
release it. When
the
high
beams
are
on,
a
light on
the
instrument
panel
also will
be on.
Windshield
Wipers
To
control the windshield
wipers, turn the band
marked WIPER.
For
a
single
wiping
cycle,
turn the
band to MIST. Hold
it
there
until the wipers
start, then
let
go. The wipers will stop
after one cycle.
If
you want
more
cycles, hold the band
on
MIST
longer.
For steady wiping at low speed, turn the band to
LO.
For
high-speed wiping, turn the band further, to
HI.
To
stop
the wipers, turn the band to
OFF.
You can set the wiper speed for
a
long or
short delay
between wipes. This
can be very useful in light rain or
snow. Turn the band to choose
the delay time. The
closer to
LO,
the shorter
the delay.
Be sure
to
clear
ice and snow from the wiper blades
before using them.
If
they’re
frozen
to
the windshield,
carefully loosen or thaw them. If your blades do become
damaged, get new blades
or
blade
inserts.
Have you recently changed brands of fuel?
If
so,
be sure
to fuel your vehicle with quality
fuel
(see
“Fuel”
in
the Index). Poor
fuel
quality will cause your
engine not to run as efficiently as designed. You may
notice this as stalling after start-up, stalling when you
put the vehicle into gear, misfiring, hesitation
on
acceleration or
stumbling on acceleration. (These
conditions may
go
away once the engine is warmed up.)
This will be detected by the system and cause
the
light
to turn on.
If
you experience this condition,
changethe fuel brand
you use.
It
will require at least
one
full
tank
of
the
proper fuel to turn the light off.
If
none of the above steps have made the light turn off,
have your dealer or qualified service center check the
vehicle. Your dealer has
the proper test equipment and
diagnostic tools
to
fix any mechanical or electrical
problems that may have developed.
Oil
Warning
Light
If
you have a problem with
your
oil, this light may
stay
on after you start your
engine,
or
come on when
This indicates that oil is not going through your engine
quickly enough to keep
it
lubricated. The
engine
could
be low on oil or could have some
other oil problem.
Have it fixed right away.
The oil light could also come on
in
two other situations:
When the ignition is on but the engine
is
not
running,
the light will come on as a
test
to show you it is
working, but the light will go
out
when you turn the
ignition to START.
If it
doesn’t
come
on with the
ignition on, you
may have a problem with the fuse
or
bulb. Have it fixed right away.

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

covered
by
your
warranty.
Some
add-on
electrical
equipment
can
keep
other
components
from
working
as
they
should.
Headlamp
Wiring
The headlamp wiring is protected by a circuit breaker in
the underhood electrical center. 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.
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.

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 fires 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.
