Power
Door
Locks
With power door locks,
you
can lock or unlock
all
the
doors of
your
vehicle from
the driver or front
passenger
door lock switch.
Automatic
Door
Locks
Just close your doors and
turn on the
ignition. If
you
have
an
automatic
transaxle, all of the doors will
lock
when
you
move
your
shiftlever out of
PARK
(P)
or
NEUTRAL
(N). If
you have a manual
transaxle,
all
of
the doors will
lock
when
the vehicle reaches about
8
mph
(1
3
km/h).
If someone needs
to get out while
the
vehicle
is
running,
have
that
person
use
the
manual
or
power lock. When
the door is closed again, it will
lock
automatically
when
you
move
your
shift lever out of
PARK (P)
or
NEUTRAL
(N).
If
you
have a manual
transaxle, the doors will
lock
when
the
vehicle
reaches
about
8
mph
(1
3
km/h).
All doors will
automatically
unlock
when
the
key
is
turned
to the
OFF
position.
If
you
don’t
want
the doors to automatically
unlock
when
the
key
is
turned
to
theOFF position,
you
can
remove
the
DR UNLK fuse. For fuse location, see
Fuses
and
Circuit
Breakers”
in
the
Index.

If you
park
in
a
lot where someone will
be watching
your vehicle, it’s
best to lock it
up and take your
keys.
But what if
you
have to leave your ignition key? What if
you have to leave something valuable in your vehicle?
Put your valuables
in
a
storage area, like your
trunk
or glove box.
0
Lock the glove box.
0
Lock all the doors except the driver’s.

Then take the door key with you.
Your
vc
cle is equipped with the Passlock
theft-deterrent system.
Passlock
is
a passive theft-deterrent system. The system
is armed once the key is removed from the ignition.
Passlock enables fuel if the ignition lock cylinder is
turned
with a valid key, If a correct key is not used, fuel
is disabled.
During normal operation, the SECURITY light will go
off after the engine is started. In the unlikely event that
the engine stalls and the SECURITY light flashes, wait
until the light stops flashing before trying to restart the
engine. Remember to release the key from the START
position as soon
as the engine starts.
If
after several tries
the vehicle still does not start, the vehicle may
need
service. At this time, you
may also want to check the
fuses (see “Fuses and Circuit Breakers” in the Index).
See your Oldsmobile retailer for service.
If the SECURITY light comes on while the engine is
running, a problem has been detected and the system
may need service. See your retailer for service.
In
an
emergency, call the Oldsmobile Roadside
Assistance Program at
1-800-442-OLDS
(6537).
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
will
flash
in
the
direction
of
the
turn or lane
change.
As
you
signal
a
turn or a lane change, if the arrows
don’t
flash
but just stay on, 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).
Headlamp
High/Low
Beam
To change the
headlamps
from
low
beam
to
high
or
high
to
low,
pull
the
turn
signal
lever
all
the
way
toward
you.
Then
release it.
When
the
high
beams
are
on, a blue light
on
the
instrument
panel
also
will
be
on.
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.
A
warning
chime
signal
will come on
if
you have
left
your
turn
signal
on
for
more
than
3/4
mile
(1
km).
The headlamp
high/low
beam
indicator
may
flash
if the
Daytime
Running
Lights
(DRL)
system
is
experiencing
a problem or if a headlamp
is
malfunctioning.

Open the visor cover to expose the vanity mirror.
The auxiliary power outlet is located in the front storage
armrest. You can use it to plug in
an additional electrical
accessory. Just open the armrest lid and remove the plug
from the auxiliary outlet. Be sure to follow the proper
installation instructions that are included with
any
electrical accessory you install. The auxiliary power
outlet is protected by a fuse and has a maximum current
level.

Push down on the tab
marked with a hanger
symbol to fold down the

Your instrument panel is designed to let you know at a
glance how your vehicle is running. You’ll know how

Have you recently changed 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 this condition, 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 retailer or qualified service center check the
vehicle. Your retailer has the proper test equipment and
diagnostic tools to fix any mechanical
or
electrical
problems that may have developed.
If
you have a low engine oil
pressure problem, this light
will stay on after you start
your engine, or come on
when you are driving.
This indicates that
your engine is not receiving enough
oil. The engine could be low on oil,
or could have some
other oil problem. Have
it
fixed immediately.
The light could also come on
in
the following situations:
When the ignition is on but the engine is not running,
the light will come on as a test to show
you it
is
working, but the light will go out when
you
turn
the
ignition to
START.
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.

NOTICE:
Do
not tow
your
vehicle

Electrical
System
Add-on Electrical
Equipment
NOTICE:
Don’t
add
anything
electrical
to your
Oldsmobile
unless
you
check
with
your
retailer
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
Oldsmobile, see
“Servicing Your Air Bag-Equipped Oldsmobile”
in
the Index.
Headlamp
Wiring
The
headlamp
wiring is protected
by a circuit breaker
in
the fuse block. 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 wiring
checked
right
away.
Windshield
Wipers
The windshield
wiper
motor
is
protected
by
an
internal
circuit
breaker
anda 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
and
not
snow, etc., be sure to get 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
or goes
away.
Fuses
and
Circuit
Bre;abcla
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.
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. Just pick a 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
fuse block.
