Buick Regal - 1998 Fuse Box Diagram

I1
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
anotherkey 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 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 then come
on.
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 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 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-
1
112. In Canada, call 1-800-268-6800.
2-16
Turn Signal
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 arrow flashes
faster
than normal 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 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
314
mile (1.2 km).
Headlamp
High/Low
Beam
Changer
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, this light
on
the instrument
panel also will be
on.

2-53
Have you recently cnanged 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
one
or more of these
conditions,
change the
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.
Qil
Warning
Light
If you have a problem with
your oil, this light may stay
on after you start your
engine,
or come on when
you are
driving.
This
indicatesthat 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
the following
situations:
0
0
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.)
Sometimes when the engine is idling at a stop, the
light may
blink
on and off. This
is
normal.
2-71
The red RESET button
is
located
inside your
instrument panel fuse
block.
(It’s the first button in the
top row of the fuse block.)
The
LOW
TIRE
light will come
on
and flash
three
times.
Then
it will go off. If the
light doesn’t go off, see
your
dealer
for
service.
The system
completes
the
calibration
process
during
driving.
The system
normally
takes
15
to
20
minutes of driving
in
each
of
three
speed
ranges
to “learn”
tire
pressures.
The
speed
ranges are
15
to
40
mph
(25
to
65
km/h),
40
to
65
mph
(65
to
105
km/h)
and
above
65
mph
(105
km/h).
When
learning
is
complete,
the
system
will
alert
you
after
2-8
minutes if a
tire
is
12
psi
(83
kPa)
different from the
other
three
tires.
Detection
thresholds
may
be
higher
and
detection
times
may
be
longer
on
rough
roads,
curves
and
at
high
speeds. The system
is
not
capable
of
detection
at
speeds
greater
than
70
mph
(1
10
km/h).
Tire
Inspection
and
Rotation
Tires should be rotated every
6,000
to
8,000
miles
(10
000
to
13
000
km).
Any time
you
notice unusual
wear, rotate your tires
as
soon
as
possible and check
wheel alignment.
Also check for
damaged tires or
wheels. See “When It’s Time for New Tires”
and
“Wheel
Replacement” later in
this
section
for
more
information.
The purpose
of
regular rotation is to achieve more
uniform wear for
all
tires on the vehicle. The first
rotation is the most important.
See “Scheduled
Maintenance
Services”
in
the
Index for scheduled
rotation intervals.

NOTICE:
Don’t
add
anything
electrical
to
your
vehicle
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 vehicle, see “Servicing
Your Air Bag-Equipped Vehicle” in the Index.
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
checkedright 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.
6-61
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.
Instrument
Panel
Fuse
Block
Some
fuses are in a
fuse
block on the passenger’s
side of the instrument panel.
Pull off the cover labeled
