Operation
Your vehicle is equipped
Ill
(Personalized Automotive
Security System)
theft-deterrent system.
Ill
is a passive
theft deterrent system.
This means
you
don’t
have
to do anything different
to arm or disarm the
system. It works
when
you
insert or
remove the key
from the ignition.
Ill
system
senses that someone
is using the wrong key, it shuts down the vehicle’s
starter and fuel systems.
The starter will not work and
fuel will stop being delivered to the engine. Anyone
using a trial-and-error method to start the vehicle will be
discouraged because of the high number of electrical
key codes.
When trying to start the
vehicle
if
the
engine
does
not
start and the SECURITY
message
comes
on,
the
key
may
have
a
damaged transponder. Turn
the ignition
off
and try again.
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
on
page
5-96.
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
II
I
to have
a
new key made.
It
is possible for the [email protected]
Ill
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.
If
all the currently programmed keys are
lost
or
do
not operate, you
must
see
your dealer or
a
locksmith
who can service [email protected]
Ill
to have
keys
made
and
programmed to the system.
See your dealer who
can service [email protected]
Ill
to get
a
new
key blank that is a cut exactly as the
ignition
key
that operates the system.

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.
An arrow on the instrument
panel cluster and the HUD
display 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 arrow
flashes faster than normal, 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 check the
fuse.
See
Fuses
and
Circuit Breakers
on
page
5-96.
If
you have
a trailer towing option with
added
wiring
for
the trailer lamps, the signal indicator will
flash
at
a
normal rate even
if
a turn signal bulb is burned
out.
Check the front and
rear turn signal
lamps
regularly
to make sure they are working.
Turn
Signal
On
Chime
If
either turn signal is left on for
more
than
3/4
mile
(1.2
km), a
chime
will
sound to let
the
driver
know to
turn
it
off.
If
you
need to leave the signal on
for
more
than
3/4
mile
(1.2
km), turn
off
the signal and
then turn it
back
on.
Headlamp
High/Low-Beam
Changer
To
change the headlamps
from
low to high,
simply
push
the turn signal lever away from you.
Then
release
it.
To
change
the
headlamps
from high to low,
pull
the
lever
toward you.

When
the high beams are
on,
this
light,
on
the
instrument panel
cluster
and
the
HUD
display,
will
also
be
on.

If
the
sun
comes
out
or
it becomes cloudy, you may
need
to
adjust
the
HUD
brightness
again using
the
dimmer
knob.
Polarized
sunglasses could make the
HUD
image
harder
to
see.
When
you
first
start
the
vehicle the display
will
show
BUICK
and
the h i c k logo
for
a
few
seconds.
If
it
is cold
outside,
this
display
may stay on
for up to a minute.
Clean
the
inside
of
the
windshield as needed
to remove
any
dirt
or
film that reduces
the
sharpness or clarity
of
the
HUD
image.
To
clean
the
HUD,
spray
household
glass
cleaner
on
a
soft,
clean
cloth.
Wipe
the HUD lens gently,
then
dry
it.
Do
not
spray
cleaner
directly
on
the lens because the
cleaner
could
leak
into
the
unit.
If
the ignition is on and
you can’t
see the HUD image,
check to see if one
of
the following
conditions
exist:
0
The HUD unit
is
covered,
0
the HUD dimmer knob is adjusted incorrectly,
0
the HUD image
is
not adjusted
to the proper height,
0
ambient light (in the direction
your
vehicle is
facing) is
low,
or
a
fuse is blown. See
Fuses
and
Circuit
Breakers
on
page
5-96.
If
you
ever have to have your
windshield replaced, be
sure to get one that is designed for
the
HUD
or
your
HUD image may look blurred and
out
of
focus.

Notice:
If
the other
system isn’t a
12-volt
system
with a negative ground,
both vehicles can be
damaged.
2.
Get the vehicles close enough
so
the
jumper cables
can
reach, but be sure the vehicles aren’t touching
each
other.
If they are, it could cause
a
ground
connection you
don’t
want.
You
wouldn’t be able to
start your vehicle, and the bad grounding could
damage the electrical systems.
To
avoid the possibility
of
the vehicles rolling, set
the parking brake firmly on both vehicles involved in
the jump starting procedure. Put
an automatic
transaxle in PARK
(P)
or
a
manualtransaxle
in NEUTRAL before setting the parking brake.
Notice:
If you leave your radio on, it could
be
badly
damaged.
The repairs wouldn’t
be
covered
by
your
warranty.
3.
Turn
off
the ignition on both vehicles. Unplug
unnecessary accessories plugged into the cigarette
lighter or in the accessory
power outlet(s). Turn
off
the radios and all
lamps that aren’t needed. This
will avoid sparks and help save both batteries.
And it could save your radio!
4.
Open
the
hoods
and locate the
batteries. Find the
positive
(+)
and
negative
(-)
terminals
on
each
vehicle.
You will not need to access
your

for
jump
starting. Your vehicle has
a
remote
positive
(+)
jump starting terminal for
that
purpose.
The
terminal
is located under a tethered cap
at
the
front of the
underhood fuse and
relay
center. See
Engine
Compartment
Overview
on
page
5-12
for
more
information on location.
Flip the cap
up to access
the
remote
positive

Power
Windows
and
Other
Power
Options
Circuit breakers in the
floor console fuse block
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.
Fuses and
Circuit
Breakers
The wiring circuits in your
vehicle are protected
from
short circuits by a combination of fuses,

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
or
use
one
of
the
spare fuses in the
underhood fuse and
relay center. 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 right amperage.
Replace
it as soon
as you
can.
There are two fuse blocks in your
vehicle:
the
floor
console fuse block and
the
underhood fuse and
relay
center.
