Remember, the 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 or the remote keyless entry transmitter.
To avoid activating the alarm by accident:
D
The vehicle should be locked with the key
after
the
doors are closed if you don’t want to activate the
theft
-
deterrent system.
D
Always unlock a door with a key or use the remote
keyless entry transmitter. (Pressing the unlock button
on the remote keyless entry transmitter disables the
theft
-
deterrent system.) Unlocking a door any other
way will activate the alarm. Cycling the ignition
without disarming the theft
-
deterrent system will
also activate the alarm.
If you activate the alarm by accident, unlock the driver’s
door with your key. You can also turn off the alarm by
using the remote keyless entry transmitter. The alarm
won’t stop if you try to unlock a door in any other way.
Testing the Alarm
1.
From inside the vehicle, roll down the window, then
get out of the vehicle, keeping the door open.
2.
From outside the vehicle, with the door open, lock
the vehicle using the power door lock or the remote
keyless entry transmitter and close the door. Wait
30 seconds until the SECURITY light stops flashing.
3.
Reach in and unlock the door using the manual lock
and open the door. The horn will sound and the
headlamps will flash.
If the alarm does not sound when it should, 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 fuse does not need to be replaced, you
may need to have your vehicle serviced.
To reduce the possibility of theft, always activate
the optional theft
-
deterrent system when leaving
your vehicle.

Turn and Lane Change Signals
To signal a turn, move the turn signal/multifunction
lever all the way up or down. The lever returns
automatically when the turn is complete.
This arrow on the
instrument panel cluster
will flash in the direction of
the turn or lane change.
Raise or lower the lever until the arrow starts to flash to
signal a lane change. Hold it there until the lane change
is complete. The lever returns when it is released.
Arrows that flash rapidly when signaling for a turn or
lane change may be caused by a burned
-
out front signal
bulb. (This does not occur with a burned
-
out rear bulb).
Other drivers won’t see the turn signal. Replace
burned
-
out bulbs to help avoid possible accidents.
Check the fuse (see “Fuses and Circuit Breakers” in the
Index) and for burned
-
out bulbs if the arrow fails to
work when signaling a turn.
Headlamp High/Low Beam
With the Twilight Sentinel
R
on or with the lamp
control dial turned to the headlamp position, push the
turn signal/multifunction lever on the driver’s side of
the steering wheel away from you to turn on the
high
-
beam headlamps.
This light on the instrument
panel cluster will be on,
indicating high
-
beam usage.
Pull the lever back to the original position to return to
low
-
beam headlamps. For more information, see
“Headlamps” in the Index.
Flash-To-Pass
This feature uses the high
-
beam headlamps to signal the
driver in front of you that you want to pass. This feature
will work with either the headlamps on or off.
To use, pull the turn signal lever toward you and release.
2-56
Rear Power Sunshade (Option)
The power rear sunshade helps reduce the amount of
heat and light from the sun entering through the rear
window. The sunshade increases the comfort level of the
rear seat passengers as well as keeping your vehicle a
little cooler when it’s parked in a sunny area.
This button is located on the
instrument panel, near the
radio. To use, press the
button. The button returns
to its original position when
released. The rear sunshade
automatically raises. To
lower the sunshade, press
the button again.
Accessory Power Outlet
The accessory power outlet is located on the center
console. Open the cover to use the power outlet.
When not in use, replace the cover.
The outlet can be used to plug in electrical equipment
such as a cellular telephone, CB radio, etc. Follow the
proper installation instructions that are included with
any electrical equipment you install.
Certain power accessory plugs may not be compatible to
the power accessory 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.
NOTICE:
Be sure to turn off any electrical equipment when
not in use. Leaving electrical equipment on for
extended periods can drain your battery.

3.
Open the hoods and locate the batteries. You’ll also
need to open the power distribution fuse block cover
to access the positive (+) terminal on the battery
(see arrow).
CAUTION:
An electric fan can start up even when the engine
is not running and can injure you. Keep hands,
clothing and tools away from any underhood
electric fan.
CAUTION:
Using a match near a battery can cause battery
gas to explode. People have been hurt doing this,
and some have been blinded. Use a flashlight
if you need more light.
Be sure the battery has enough water. You don’t
need to add water to the ACDelco
R
battery
installed in every new GM vehicle. But if a
battery has filler caps, be sure the right amount
of fluid is there. If it is low, add water to take
care of that first. If you don’t, explosive gas could
be present.
Battery fluid contains acid that can burn you.
Don’t get it on you. If you accidentally get it in
your eyes or on your skin, flush the place with
water and get medical help immediately.
6-30
Battery
Your new vehicle comes with a maintenance free
ACDelco
R
battery. When it’s time for a new battery, get
one that has the replacement number shown on the
original battery’s label. We recommend an ACDelco
battery. See “Engine Compartment Overview” in the
Index for battery location.
WARNING: Battery posts, terminals and related
accessories contain lead and lead compounds, chemicals
known to the State of California to cause cancer and
reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.
CAUTION:
Batteries have acid that can burn you and gas
that can explode. You can be badly hurt if you
aren’t careful. See “Jump Starting” in the Index
for tips on working around a battery without
getting hurt.
After a power loss, such as disconnecting the battery or
removing the maxi fuses in the power distribution fuse
block, the following steps must be performed to
calibrate the electronic throttle control. If this is not
done, the engine will not run properly.
1.
Turn the ignition key to the RUN position. Do not
start the engine.
2.
Leave the ignition in the RUN position for at least
three minutes so that the electronic throttle control
will cycle and re
-
learn its home position.
3.
Turn the ignition to OFF.
4.
Start and run the engine for at least 30 seconds.
Also, for your audio system, see “Theft
-
Deterrent
Feature” in the Index.
Bulb Replacement
For any bulb changing procedure not listed in this
section, contact your dealer service department.
For bulb types, see “Replacement Bulbs” in the Index.

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.
Headlamp Wiring
The headlamp wiring has several fuses which are
powered by a MaxiFuse
R
. An electrical overload will
cause the lamps to go on and off, or in some cases to
remain off. If this happens, have the headlamp wiring
checked right away.
Windshield Wiper Fuses
If the windshield wiper motor overheats due to heavy
snow or ice, the wipers 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 Options
Circuit breakers 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.
6-57
Power Distribution Fuse Block
This fuse block is attached to the engine compartment
relay center located on top of the battery. Simply lift the
lid to open. If you have any questions about the power
distribution fuse block, consult your dealer.
Please note that if a power loss has occurred, such as
disconnecting the battery or removing the Maxi Fuses in
the power distribution fuse block, there are steps that
must be followed to calibrate the electronic throttle
control (ETC). If these steps are not done, the engine
will not run properly. For information regarding these
steps, see “Battery” earlier in this section.
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.
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. 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
instrument panel fuse block and the engine
compartment relay center.

Instrument Panel Fuse Block (Driver’s Side)
The fuse block is located below the steering wheel on
