Buick Regal - 1997 Fuse Box Diagram

Buick Regal - 1997 Fuse Box Diagram

I1
Your vehicle
is
equipped
with the PASS-Key
I1
(Personalized
Automotive
Security
System)
theft-deterrent system.
PASS-Key
TI
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
flashing,
the
key
may be
dirty or wet.
Turn
the
ignition
off.
Clean and dry the key. Wait about three minutes and try
again.
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 come
on. 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
comes
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
IT
ignition key, see
your Buick dealer or
a
locksmith who
can
service
the
PASS-Key
I1
to have a new
key made.
2-17
-
As
you signal
a
turn or
a
lane
change,
if the arrow
flashes
faster than normal, 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 for burned-out bulbs and then 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
3/4
mile
(1.2
km).
Headlamp
HigWLow
Beam
To
change your headlamps
from low beams to high
beams, 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.
Flash-to-Pass
Feature
This
feature lets
you
use your high-beam headlamps to
signal
the
driver
in
front
of
you that
you
want to pass.
It
works even
if
your headlamps are
off.
To
use it,
pull
the turn signal lever toward you a little,
but not
so
far that you hear
a
click.
If
your headlamps are off or on low beam, your
high-beam headlamps will turn
on.
They’ll stay on as
long as
you
hold the lever toward you and the
high-beam indicator on the dash will come
on. Release
the lever to turn
the
high-beam headlamps off.

NOTICE:
Adding some electrical equipment
to your vehicle
can
damage
it
or
keep other
things
from working
as
they should. This wouldn’t be covered by your
warranty. Check with your dealer before adding
electrical equipment and never use anything that
exceeds the fuse rating.
Auxiliary Power Connection
Your vehicle is equipped
with an auxiliary power
connection.
This
feature can
be used
to
add
aftermarket
electrical
equipment
to
your vehicle.
It is located on the passenger’s side
of
the vehicle,
below the fuse
panel.
For
information on accessing the
connection and electrical
hookup,please refer to your
service manual.

Tire
Pressure
Monitor
Light
LOW
TI
RE
The tire
pressure
monitor
system
can alert you to
a
large change in the pressure
in
one
tire. The system
won’t alert you before you
drive that a
tire is low or
flat.
Each
time you start
your
Buick, you must drive
10 to
20
miles
(15
to
30
km)
before the system will
work properly.
After you’ve
driven
10
to
20
miles
(15
to
30
km), the
LOW
TIRE
light will come on if the
pressure
in
one tire
becomes at least 10 psi
(69
kPa)
higher or lower than the
other
three tires. The tire pressure
monitor system
detects
differences in tire rotation speeds that are
caused
by changes in tire pressure. It will not alert you
if
the
pressure in more than
one
tire
is low or high or
if
the
system
is not calibrated properly.
The
system can alert
you about
a low tire
--
but it doesn’t measure tire
pressure,
and it doesn’t replace normal tire
maintenance.
See “Tires’’
in
the Index.
When the LOW
TIRE
light
comes
on,
you should
stop
as
soon
as you can and check all your tires for
damage.
(If
a
tire is flat,
see “If
a
Tire Goes Flat” in the Index.)
Also, check the tire pressure in all four tires as soon
as
you can.
(See “Inflation
-
Tire
Pressure” in the Index.)
The
LOW
TIRE
light will
stay on until you
turn
off
the ignition or press the red
RESET button, which is
located inside your
instrument panel fuse block.
(It’s the first button in
the
top row
of the fuse block.)
Don’t press the RESET button without first checking
and adjusting the pressure in all four tires.
If
you press
the button when the tire pressure is
incorrect,
the
check
tire
pressure system will not work properly
and
may
not alert you when a tire is low.
Any time
you
adjust
the tire pressure, you’ll need
to
calibrate the check tire pressure
system.
You’ll
also neea
to
calibrate the system whenever you
buy
new tires,
have tires repaired or rotate your tires.
The
oil
light could
also
come on
in
the
following
situations:
The light
will
come
on
briefly
when
you
turn
on
the
ignition
to
show
you
that
it is working
properly.
(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.)
0
Sometimes
when
the
engine
is idling at a stop,
the
light may blink
on
and
off.
This is normal.
Don’t
keep
driving
if
the
oil
pressure
is
low.
If
you
do,
your
engine
can
become
so
hot
that it
catches
fire. You
or
others
could
be
burned.
Check
your
oil as
soon
as
possible
and
have
your
vehicle
serviced.
NOTICE:
Damage
to
your
engine
from
neglected
oil
problems
can
be
costly
and
is not
covered by
your
warranty.
Low
Oil
Level
Light
LOW
OIL
Your
engine is equipped
with
an
oil
level
monitoring
system.
When
the
ignition
key is turned
on, the
LOW
OIL
light will
come
on
briefly.
If
the
light
does
not
come on briefly,
have it fixed
so
it will be ready
to
warn
you
if
there’s a problem.
If
the
light
stays
on,
stop
the
vehicle
on
a
level
surface
and
turn
the
engine
off.
Check
the
oil
level
using the
engine
oil
dipstick.
(See
“Engine
Oil”
in
the
Index.)
If
the
light
does
not
flash,
have
the
low
oil
level
sensor
system
repaired
so
it will be
ready
to warn you if there’s
a problem.
The
oil
level
monitoring
system
only checks
oil
level
during
the brief period
between
key
on
and
engine
crank.
It
does
not monitor
engine
oil
level
when the
engine
is
running.
Additionally,
an oil
level
check
is
only
performed
if
the
engine
has been turned
off
for a
considerable
period of time,
allowing
the
oil
normally
in
circulation
to
drain
back
into
the
oil
pan.

theIndex.
Headlamp
Wiring
The
headlampwiring 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.
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.
6-58
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.
