Pontiac Sunfire - 1997 Fuse Box Diagram

Pontiac Sunfire - 1997 Fuse Box Diagram

When you park your Pontiac and open the driver’s door,
you’ll
hear
a
chime reminding you to remove your key
from the ignition and take
it
with you. Always do this.
Your steering wheel will be locked, and
so
will your
ignition. If
you have an automatic transaxle, taking your
key
out
also
locks your transaxle. And remember to lock
the doors.
Parking
at
Night
Park in a lighted spot, close all windows and lock your
vehicle. Remember to keep your valuables out
of
sight.
Put them in a storage area, or take them with you.
Parking
Lots
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 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.
Lock the glove box.
Lock all the doors except the driver’s.
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 SYSTEM light
will
go
off after the engine is started.
If
the engine stalls
and the THEFT SYSTEM 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
SYSTEM
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
fuses (see “Fuses and Circuit Breakers” in the Index).
See your Pontiac dealer
for
service.
If the THEFT SYSTEM 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-ROADSIDE or 1-800-762-3743.

If
a
bulb is burned out, replace it to hlelp avoid
an
accident. If the arrows don’t
go

fuse
(see “Fuses
and
Circuit
Breakers’’
in the Index) and for burned-out bulbs.

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

is
left in the tank,
and
many
other
things you’ll
need to drive safely and economically.

Warning
Light
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.

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

Headlamp
Wiring
Fuses
and
Circuit
Breakers
The headlamp wiring is protected by fuses. Should your
headlamps fail
to function, have your headlamp fuses
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.
The wiring circuits in your vehicle are protected from
short circuits by a combination of fuses, circuit breakers
and fusible thermal 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 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 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
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.
