If you don’t want to
activate the theft-deterrent
system,
lock
the door by using the door
key
or
the
manual door
lock
switch.
Always unlock a
door
with
a
key, or use the remote
keyless entry system transmitter. Unlocking
a
door
any other way will set
off
the
alarm.
If
you set off the alarm by accident, unlock any door
with your key.
You can
also turn off the
alarm by using the remote
keyless entry transmitter, if you have
it.
The alarm won’t
stop if you
try to unlock a
door any other way.

From
inside
the vehicle, roll down the window.
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 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
alarm.
If
the alarm does not sound when it
should, but the
vehicle’s lamps
flash,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.
If the alarm
does not sound
flash, the vehicle should be
service center.

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
decoderin your vehicle.
2-17
When
thePASS-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
thistime, 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
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.
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 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. The
SECURITY light will flash.
But you don’t have to wait
three minutes before trying another ignition key.
See your 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
torestart your engine
if
you turn it off. Your PASS-Key
I1
system, however,
is not working properly and must be serviced by
your 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 dealer or
a
locksmith who can service PASS-Key I1
to have a new
key made. In
an
emergency, call the
Buick Premium Roadside Assistance Center at
1-800-252- 11 12. In Canada, call 1-800-268-6800.

Headlamp High/Low Beam Changer and

Windshield Wipers and Washer
Cruise
Control
Turn
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
yourturn 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.
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.
Maxifuse@/Relay
Center
To check
the
fuses
in
this underhood fuse center,
turn the
two
knobs
one-quarter
turn to the left
(counterclockwise)
and
loosen
the metal wing nut
on
the passenger
sideof 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.
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.
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
theroad 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.

the replacement
of
these
