New
Vehicle “Break-In”
NOTICE:
Your modern Buick doesn’t need an
elaborate
“break-in.” But it will perform
better
in
the
long
run if you
follow
these guidelines:
Don’t drive
at
any one speed
--
fast or
slow
--
for
the
first
500
miles
(805
km).
Don’t make
full-throttle
starts.
200
miles
(322
km) or
so.
During
this
time
your new brake linings aren’t yet broken
in. Hard stops with new linings can
mean
premature wear and
earlier
replacement.
Follow this
breaking-in guideline every
time you get new brake linings.
Don’t
tow
a
trailer
during break-in. See
“Towing
a
Trailer” in the
Index
for
more
information.
Avoid making hard stops
for
the
first
2-13
Turn and
Lane
Change
Signals
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.
A
green
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.
AS
you
signal
a
turn
or a
lane
change,
if
the
arrows
flash
at
twice
the
normal
rate,
a
signal
bulb
may
be
burned
out.
If
a
bulb
is
burned
out,
have
it
replaced
to
help
avoid
an
accident. If the mows 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.
Thrn

Chime
A
chime
will
sound
if
your

to
remind
you
to
turn
your

NOTICE:
Do
not
tow
your
vehicle
from
the

or
your
vehicle
could
be
badly
damaged
and
the
costly
repairs
would
not

Electrical
System
Add-on Electrical
Equipment
NOTICE:
Don’t
add
anything
electrical
to
your
h i c k
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
a
circuit
breaker
in
the
fuse
block. 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
wiring
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
and
not
snow,
etc., be
sure
to
get
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
or
goes
away.
6-56
Fuses
and
Circuit
Breakers
The
wiring
circuits
in
your
car
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.
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
a
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
instrument
panel
fuse block
and
the
engine
compartment
fuse
block.
