If
you
have
a
problem
with
your oil, this
light
may
stay
on
after
you
start
your
engine,
or
come
on
when
you
are
driving.
This
indicates that oil is not
going
through
your
engine
quickly
enough
to
keep it
lubricated.
The engine
could
be
low
on
oil,
or
could
have
some
other
oil
problem.
Have
it
fixed
right
away.
The
oil
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
toSTART.
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.

On
four
cylinder
engines,
when
the engine
is
idling
at
a
stop,
the
light
may
blink
on and
off.
In
addition,
if
you
make
a
hard
stop,
the
light
may
come
on
for
a
moment. This is normal.
Don’t keep
driving
if the oil pressure
is low.
If
you
do, your
engine can become
so
hot that
it
catches
fire. You or
others could be
burned.
Check
your oil
as
soon
as possible and have
your vehicle serviced.

Headlamp
Wiring
The
headlamp
wiring
is
protected
by
a
circuit
breaker
located
in
the
instrument
panel
fuse
block.
An

cases
tb
remain
off.'
If
this
happens,
have
your
headlamp
system
checked
right
away.
Windshield
Wipers
The
windshield
wiper
motor
is

the
wiper
will.
stop
until
the

fixed.
Power
Windows
and
Other
Power
Options
Circuit
breakers
in
the
fuse
panel
protect
the
power
windows

When
the
current
load
is
too
heavy,
the
circuit
breaker
opens
and
closes,
protecting

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,
circuit
breakers
and
fusible
links.
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
to
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
hasthe same

Just
pick
a
feature
of
your
vehicle
that
you

get
along
without
--
like
the radio
or

lighter
--
and
use
its
fuse,
if
it
is
the
correct
amperage.
Replace it as
soon
as
you
can.
There
