These are some examples of vehicle symbols you may find on your vehicle:
Your vehicle is equipped
with the PASS-Key
III is a passive
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.
When the PASS-Key
III 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
When trying to start the vehicle, if the engine does not
start and the SECURITY light comes on, the key may
have a damaged transponder. Turn the ignition off and
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
and Circuit Breakers on page 5-99
. 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
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 programming additional keys only.
If you lose or damage your keys,
only a GM dealer can service PASS-Key
have new keys made. To program additional keys you
will need two current driver’s keys. You must 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.
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
An arrow on the instrument
panel cluster will flash in
the direction of the
turn or lane change.
If your vehicle is equipped with the Head-Up Display
(HUD), an arrow will also appear in the display area
to indicate the direction of the turn or lane change.
Head-Up Display (HUD) on page 3-18
You may also have an arrow in the outside mirror that
flashes when the turn signal is used. See
Mirrors on page 2-39
for more information.
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 arrows
flash at twice the normal rate, this may indicate that a
signal bulb may be burned out and other drivers will not
see your turn signal.
If a bulb is burned out, replace it to help avoid an
accident. If the arrows do not go on at all when you
signal a turn, check the fuse and check for burned-out
Fuses and Circuit Breakers on page 5-99
If you have a trailer towing option with added wiring for
the trailer lamps, the signal indicator will flash even if
a turn signal bulb is burned out. Check the front and
rear turn signal lamps regularly to make sure they
are working. You do not need to add a different flasher.
Turn Signal On Chime
If your turn signal is left on for more than 3/4 of a mile
(1.2 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.
Care of the HUD
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 You Can’t See The HUD Image When
the Ignition is On
If the ignition is on and you can’t see the HUD image,
check to see if:
The headlamps are on.
Something is covering the HUD unit.
The HUD dimmer control is adjusted properly.
The HUD image is adjusted to the proper height.
A fuse is blown. See
Fuses and Circuit Breakers on
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.
Ultrasonic Rear Parking Assist
Your vehicle may be equipped with Ultrasonic Rear
Parking Assist (URPA). URPA is designed to help you
park while in REVERSE (R) and operates only at
speeds less than 3 mph (5 km/h). URPA can help you
avoid colliding with objects such as parked vehicles.
The system can detect objects 5 feet (1.5 m) behind
your vehicle and tell you how close those objects are to
your rear bumper.
The URPA display is located inside the vehicle, above
the rear window. It has three color-coded lights that can
be seen through the rearview mirror.
Even with the Ultrasonic Rear Park Assist
system, the driver must check carefully before
backing up. The system does not operate above
typical backing speeds of 3 mph (5 km/h) while
Certain electrical accessories may not be compatible to
the accessory power outlet and could result in blown
vehicle or adapter fuses. If you experience a problem
see your dealer for additional information on accessory
Adding any electrical equipment to your
vehicle may damage it or keep other components
from working as they should. The repairs would not
be covered by your warranty. Check with your
dealer before adding electrical equipment.
When adding electrical equipment, be sure to follow
the proper installation instructions included with
Improper use of the power outlet can cause
damage not covered by your warranty. Do not
hang any type of accessory or accessory bracket
from the plug because the power outlets are
designed for accessory power plugs only.
Ashtrays and Cigarette Lighter
The front ashtray is located under the climate control
panel on the center console. Press on the door to
release the ashtray. To close, press on the door again.
To empty the ashtray, remove it from the center
console by gripping the edges and pulling straight out.
To reinstall, push the tray back into place.
The rear ashtrays are located on each rear door panel.
To remove a rear ashtray, open the lid and ease the
ashtray upward until the edge can be grasped to pull the
ashtray up and out.
If you put papers or other flammable items
in the ashtray, hot cigarettes or other smoking
materials could ignite them and possibly damage
your vehicle. Never put flammable items in the
There is a cigarette lighter near the front ashtray.
To use it, push it in all the way and let go. When it’s
ready, it will pop back out by itself.
Holding a cigarette lighter in while it is
heating will not allow the lighter to back away from
the heating element when it is hot. Damage from
overheating may occur to the lighter or heating
element, or a fuse could be blown. Do not hold a
cigarette lighter in while it is heating.

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 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.
There are four fuse blocks in your vehicle: the main and
auxiliary instrument panel fuse blocks, the underhood
fuse block and the rear fuse block.
Main and Auxiliary Instrument Panel
The main and auxiliary instrument panel fuse blocks are
located under the instrument panel, on the passenger’s
side of the vehicle. Lamps, connectors and the
HVAC duct temperature sensors may need to be
disconnected and removed to allow access to these
Remove the hush panel on the passenger’s side to
reveal the fuses by performing the following steps:
1. Remove the two screws located along the front
edge of the panel.
2. Lower the hush panel.
3. Remove the fuse block cover.
4. Place the wide end of the fuse puller over the
plastic end of the fuse.
5. Squeeze the ends over the fuse and pull it out.
When finished, reinstall the fuse block cover and
the hush panel. Reinstall lamps, connectors and HVAC
duct temperature sensors if they were removed.

protection needed in a crash. If the safety belt
hasn’t been routed through the seat cushion
at all, it won’t be there to work for the next
passenger. The person sitting in that position
could be badly injured. After reinstalling the
