2-19
If a door is opened without the key or remote
keyless entry transmitter, the alarm will go off.
Your vehicle’s lamps will flash and the horn will sound
for 30 seconds. The lamps and horn will then turn off
to save battery power.
Remember, the content theft
-
deterrent system won’t
activate if you lock the doors with a key or use the
manual door lock. It activates only if you use a power
door lock switch with a door open, or with the remote
keyless entry transmitter. You should also remember
that you can start your vehicle with the correct ignition
key if the alarm has been set off.
Here’s how to avoid setting off the alarm by accident:
D
If you don’t want to activate the theft
-
deterrent
system, the vehicle should be locked with the door
key
after
the doors are closed.
D
Always unlock a door with a key, or use the remote
keyless entry 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
pressing the button with the unlock symbol on the
remote keyless entry transmitter. The alarm won’t
stop if you try to unlock a door any other way.
Testing the Alarm
The alarm can be tested by following these steps:
1.
From inside the vehicle, roll down the driver’s
window and open the driver’s door.
2.
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.
3.
Get out of the car, close the door and wait for the
SECURITY light to go out.
4.
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 or the vehicle’s lamps do not
flash, the vehicle should be serviced by an authorized
service center.
2-21
If the engine still does not start, and the key appears to
be undamaged, 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 engine still does
not start with the other key, your vehicle needs service.
If your vehicle does start, the first key may be faulty.
See your dealer who can service the PASS
-
Key III to
have a new key made.
It is possible for the PASS
-
Key III decoder to learn
the transponder value of a new or replacement key.
Up to 10 additional keys may be programmed for
the vehicle. This procedure is for learning additional
keys only.
Canadian Owners:
If you lose or damage your keys,
only a GM dealer can service PASS
-
Key III to have
new keys made. To program additional keys you will
need two current driver’s keys (black in color). You add
a step to the following procedure. After Step 2 repeat
Steps 1 and 2 with the second current driver’s key.
Then continue with Step 3.
To program the new key, do the following:
1.
Insert the current driver’s key (black in color) in the
ignition and start the engine. If the engine will not
start, see your dealer for service.
2.
After the engine has started, turn the key to OFF, and
remove the key.
3.
Insert the key to be programmed and turn it to RUN
within 10 seconds of removing the previous key.
4.
The SECURITY telltale light will turn off once the
key has been programmed. It may not be apparent
that the SECURITY light went on due to how
quickly the key is programmed.
5.
Repeat Steps 1 through 4 if additional keys are to
be programmed.
If you are ever driving and the SECURITY light comes
on and stays on, you will be able to restart your engine
if you turn it off. Your PASS
-
Key III system, however,
is not working properly and must be serviced by your
dealer. Your vehicle is not protected by the PASS
-
Key
III system at this time.
If you lose or damage a PASS
-
Key III key, see your
dealer to have a new key made.
2-37
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 for more than 0.8 miles
(1.3 km), a chime will sound at each flash of the turn
signal. To turn off the chime, move the turn signal lever
to the off position.
Headlamp High/Low-Beam Changer
To change the headlamps from low beam to high beam
or high beam to low beam, pull the turn signal lever
toward you and release it.
When the high beams are
on, this light located on the
instrument panel will also
be on.
If your vehicle is equipped with the Head
-
Up Display
(HUD), an arrow will also appear in the display area to
indicate the high beams are on (See “Head
-
Up Display
(HUD)” in Index for more information).
Flash-To-Pass
This feature lets you use the high
-
beam headlamps to
signal the driver in front of you that you want to pass.
It works even if your headlamps are off.
Pull the turn signal lever toward you briefly to
flash
-
to
-
pass.
If the headlamps are off or on low beam, the 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 instrument panel cluster will come on. Release
the lever to turn the high
-
beam headlamps off.

Sun Visors
Illuminated Visor Vanity Mirrors
When you open the cover to either the passenger’s
or driver’s visor vanity mirror, the lamps will turn on.
The brightness of the lamp can be adjusted by sliding
the switch up or down.
Dual Sun Visors
Each sun visor has two parts, so that both the windshield
and door glass can be shaded at the same time. To use
the dual sun visors, flip the first visor down and turn it
toward the window. Then, flip the second visor down
toward the windshield.
Auxiliary Power Outlets
Your vehicle may have one or three power outlets
depending on the type of front seat you have. If your
vehicle has front bucket seats with a center console,
you will find one outlet inside the storage compartment
and the other on the lower front edge of the console.
(An extra power outlet can be found in the ashtray.)
The power outlets can be used to plug in electrical
equipment such as a cellular telephone or CB radio.
Follow the proper installation instructions that are
included with the equipment you install.
Certain power accessory plugs may not be compatible
to the auxiliary power outlet and could result in blown
vehicle or adapter fuses. If you experience a problem
see your dealer for additional information on the power
accessory plugs.
The auxiliary power outlets will only operate when the
ignition key is in RUN and for 10 minutes after turning
the ignition off. If you would like the outlets to operate
regardless of ignition position, and for unlimited periods
of time, see “Engine Compartment Bussed Electrical
Center” in the Index or see your dealer.
NOTICE:
When using an auxiliary outlet:
D
The maximum load of any electrical
equipment should not exceed 15 amps.
D
Be sure to turn off any electrical
equipment when not in use. Leaving
electrical equipment on for extended
periods of time can drain your battery.
2-94
If the sun comes out and the sky becomes cloudy, you
may need to adjust the HUD brightness using the
dimmer control. Polarized sunglasses could make the
HUD image harder to see.
To change the display from English to metric units,
push the ENG/MET button located to the left of the
steering column.
Clean the inside of the windshield as necessary to
remove any dirt or film that reduces the sharpness
or clarity of the HUD image.
To clean the HUD lens, spray household glass cleaner
on a soft, clean cloth. Gently wipe and dry the HUD
lens. Do not spray cleaner directly on the lens to avoid
cleaner leaking inside the unit.
If the ignition is on and you can’t see the HUD image,
check to see if:
D
Something is covering the HUD unit.
D
The HUD dimmer control is adjusted properly.
D
The HUD image is adjusted to the proper height.
D
A fuse is blown. See “Fuses and Circuit Breakers” in
the Index.
Keep in mind that your windshield is part of the HUD
system. If you ever have to have your windshield
replaced, be sure to get one that is designed for HUD
or your HUD image may look blurred or out of focus.

Electrical System
Add-On Electrical Equipment
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.
Power Windows and Other
Power Accessories
Circuit breakers in the rear electrical center 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.
Fuses and Circuit Breakers
The wiring circuits in your vehicle are protected from
short circuits by a combination of fuses and circuit
breakers. 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.
You will find a fuse puller clipped in both of the bussed
electrical centers. Snap the wide end of the fuse puller at
the side indentations and pull the fuse out.
The MaxiFuses are located in two Bussed Electrical
Centers (BEC), one located near the engine compartment
on the passenger’s side and the other under the rear seat
on the driver’s side. If a MaxiFuse should blow, have
your vehicle serviced by your dealer immediately.
6-63
Engine Compartment Bussed Electrical
Center (BEC)
The front Bussed Electrical
Center (BEC) is located in
the front of the engine
compartment on the
passenger’s side. Lift the
cover to gain access.
See “Engine Compartment
Overview” in the Index
for more information
on location.
On some vehicles, there may be an additional cover
that you will need to lift to gain access to the fuses.
Fuse 22 or 23 can be moved to the outer position
to provide continuous power to the auxiliary outlet
or cigarette lighter when the ignition is not ON.
See your dealer for additional assistance, if needed.
