all
of the
doors
will
lock
when
you
move

when
the
vehicle
reaches
about
8

If
someone
needs to get
out

Passlock
TM
Your vehicle
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 THEFT SYS light will go
off
after the engine is started.
If
the engine stalls and the
THEFT
SYS 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
you
are driving and the THEFT
SYS
light comes on, you will be able to restart the engine
if
you
turn
the engine
off.
However, your Passlock system
is not
working
properly
and must be serviced by
your
dealer. Your vehicle is not protected by Passlock at
this
time.
You
may also want to check the fuse (see “Fuses
and Circuit Breakers” in the Index). See your Pontiac
dealer for service.
If
the THEFT
SYS
light comes on while the engine is
running,
a
problem has been detected and the system
may
need
service. See your dealer for service.
In an
emergency, call the Pontiac Roadside Assistance
Center at 1-800-ROADSIB or 1-800-762-3743.
New
Vehicle “Break-InSS
NOTICE:
Your modern
Pontiac doesn’t need an
elaborate
“break-in,”
But
it will perform
better
in
the
long
run
if
you
follow these
guidelines:
0
0
0
Don’t drive at any
one
speed
--
fast
or
slow
--
for
the
first
500
miles
(805
km).
Don’t make
full-throttle
starts,
Avoid making
hard
stops
for
the
first
200
miles
(322
km)
or
so,
During
this
time
your new brake
linings
aren’t
yet broken
in. Hard
stops with new linings can
mean
premature
wear
and
earlier
replacement.
Follow this
breaking-in
guideline
every
time you get new brake
linings,
Don’t tow
a
trailer
during
break-in,
See “Towing a
Trailer”
in
the
Index
for
more
information.
2-13
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.
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
warningchime signal will come on
if
you have left
your turn signal on for more than
3/4
mile
(1
km).
As
you signal a turn or a lane change,
if
the arrows flash
rapidly, 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 the
fuse (see “Fuses and Circuit
Breakers” in the Index). If the arrows still do not flash,
have your Pontiac Dealer service department check the
bulb in the instrument panel.
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 light on the instrument
panel
also
will be on.
The headlamp high/low beam indicator may flash
if
the
Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) system is experiencing
a problem
or
if
a headlamp is malfunctioning.

If
you have an accessory power outlet, you can plug in
an additional electrical accessory. The outlet is located

instructions that are included with any electrical
equipment you install. The accessory power outlet is
protected by a fuse and
has a maximum current level.

Headlamp
Wiring
The headlamp wiring is protected by a circuit breaker
located in the instrument panel fuse block. An electrical
overload will cause the headlamps to go on and off, or
in
some cases to remain off. If this happens, have your
headlamp system checked right away.
Windshield
Wipers
The windshield
wiper motor is protected by a circuit
breaker
and a 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, have
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.
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 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.
