Buick LeSabre - 1997 Fuse Box Diagram

Testing
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
while
the
door
is
open,
or
with
the
Remote
Keyless
Entry
transmitter. Get
out of
the
vehicle,
close
the
door
and
wait
for
the
SECURITY
light
to
go
out.
Then
reach
in. through
thewindow,
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
activate
the
theft-deterrent
systemwhen leaving
your
vehicle.
I1
Your vehicle
is
equipped
with
the PASS-Key
II
(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
thePASS-Key
11
system senses that
someone
is
using
the
wrong key,
it
shuts down
thevehicle’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.
2-17
The ignition key must
be
clean and dry before it’s
inserted in the ignition or
the
engine may not start. If the
engine
doesnot start and the
SECURITY
light turns on,
the
key
may be dirty or wet. Turn the ignition off.
Clean and dry the key.
Wait about three minutes and
try
again. Tf
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 the SECURITY light turns on
and stays on, you
will be able
to restart your
engine if
you turn it off. Your PASS-Key
TI
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 Ehick dealer or
a locksmith who can service
PASS-Key IT
to have a new key made.
2-18
Tur-n and Lane Change Indicator
The turn signal has two upward (for right) and two
downward
(for left) positions. These
positions allow you
to signal a turn or
a
lane
change.
To signal a turn, move the
lever
all
the
way
up or down.
When
the
turn
is finished,
the
lever
will
return
automatically.
An arrow
on the instrument
panel will flash in the
direction of the turn or
lane
change.
To
signal a
lane
change,
just raise or lower the lever
until the arrow starts to flash. Hold
it
there
until
you
complete your lane
change.
The
lever will return by
itself when you release
it.
If the arrows
just stay on and don’t flash as you signal
a
turn
or
a lane change,
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 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.
Turn
Signal
On
Chime
If
your
turn
signal
is
left on
formore than
3/4
of a mile
(1.2
km),
a
chime will sound at each
flash
of
the turn
signal.
To
turn off the chime,
move the
turn
sjgnal lever
to
the
off
position.

Electrical System
Add-on Electrical Equipment
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 working as 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 internal circuit
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.
6-55
Maxifuse/Relay
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
chartthat explains the features and controls
governed by each
fuse and relay.
Fuses
and
Circuit
Breakers
The wiring circuits
in
your vehicle are protected from
short circuits by a
combination of fuses,
circuit breakers
and
fusiblethermal links.
Thisgreatly 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
fuseblocks.
6-56
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
theplastic 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.

Block
Additional
fuses are located in the relay center, on the
passenger’s side, below
the
instrument
panel.
You
must
remove the sound insulator on the right side
of
the
passenger
footwell
to
replace these fuses.
Since
the
replacement
of
these
fuses
can
be
difficult,
we
recommend
that
you
see
your
dealer
for
fuse
replacement.
