Oldsmobile 88 - 1998 Fuse Box Diagram

Oldsmobile 88 - 1998 Fuse Box Diagram

The ignition
key
must
be
clean
and
dry
before it’s
inserted in the ignition
or
the
engine may
not
start.
If
the
engine
does
not
start and the SECURITY
light is on, the
key
may
be
dirty
or wet.
Turn
the ignition
off.
Clean
and
dry
the key.
Wait
about
three
minutes
and
try
again.
If
the starter still won’t
work,
and
the
key
appears
to be
clean
and
dry,
wait
about
three
minutes
and
try
another
ignition
key.
At
this
time,
you
may
also
want
to
check the fuse (see
Fuses
and Circuit Breakers” in the
Index
j.
If
the starter
won’t
work
with
the other key,
your
vehicle
needs
service.
If
your
vehicle
does
start, the first
ignition
key
may
be
faulty.
See your
retailer
or
a
locksmith
who can service
the
PASS-Key
II.
If
you
accidentally
use
a
key
that
has
a
damaged
or
missing
resistor
pellet,
the starter
won’t
work. The
SECURITY light will flash. But
you
don’t
have
to wait
three
minutes
before
trying
another
ignition
key.
See your
retailer or a
locksmith
who
can
service
the
PASS-Key
IT
to
have
a
new
key
made.
If
you’re
ever
driving
and
the SECURITY light comes
on
and
remains
on, you
will be able to restart
your
engine
if
you
turn
it
off.
Your
PASS-Key
11
system,
however, is not
working
properly
and
must
be
serviced
by
your
retailer.
Your
vehicle
is not
protected
by
the
PASS-Key
11
system.
If
you lose or
damage
a
PASS-Key
11
ignition
key,
see your
retailer
or
a
locksmith
who
can
service
PASS-Key
11
to have
a
new
key
made.
In an
emergency, call the
Oldsmobile
Roadside
Assistance
Center
at
1-800-442-OLDS
(6537). In Canada,
call 1-800-268-6800.
2-15
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
the fuse. See “Fuses
and Circuit Breakers”
in
the
Index.
If
you
have
added
wiring
for towing
a
trailer,
a
differenl
turn
signal flasher may
be
used.
With
this
flasher
installed, the signal
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.
lbrn
Signal
On
Chime
If
your
turnsignal 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.
Headlamp
High/Low
Beam
Changer
To change the headlamps from low
beam
to
high
beam
or
high
beams
to low beam,
pull
the
turn
signal
lever
toward
you.
Then
release
it.
When
the
high
beams
are on, this light on the
instrument
panel
will
also
be on.
Flash-To-Pass
Feature
This
feature lets you
use
your
high-beam
headlamps
to
signal
a
driver
in front of
you
that
you
want
to pass. It
works
even
if
your
headlamps
are
off.
To
use it, pull
the
turn
signal
lever
toward
you
a
little,
but
not
so
far that
you
hear
a
click.
If
your
headlamps
are
off
or on
low
beam,
your
high-beam
headlamps
will
turn
on.
They’ll
stay
on
as
long as you
hold
the
lever toward
you
and
the
high-beam
indicator
on the dash
will
come
on.
Release
the lever
to
turn
the high-beam
headlamps
off.

NOTICE:
Don’t
add
anything
electrical
to
your
vehicle
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
vehicle,
see “Servicing
Your
Air
Bag-Equipped
Vehicle”
in the
Index.
Headlamp
Wiring
The
headlamp
wiring
is
protected
by
an internal
circuit
breaker.
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
system
checked
right
away.
Windshield
Wipers
The windshield
wiper
motor
is
protected
by
an
internal
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,
be
sure
to
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
or
goes
away.
Maxifuse@/Relay
Center
To check
the
fuses
in
this
underhood
fuse
center,
turn
the
two
knobs
one-quarter
of a
turn
to
the
left
(counterclockwise)
and
loosen
the metal
wing
nut
on
the
passenger’s
side of the
cover.
Then
remove
the
cover.
The inside of the
cover
has
a
chart
that
explains
the
features
and
controls
controlled
by
each
fuse
and
relay.
6-52
Fuses
and
Circuit
Breakers
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
useits fuse,
if it is the correct
amperage.
Replace it as
soon
as
you
can.
There
are
two
fuse blocks in your
vehicle: the driver’s
side
and
passenger’s
side fuse blocks.
Driver’s
Side
Fuse
Block
The driver’s side fuse block
is
to the left of the
steering
wheel,
under
the instrument
panel.
Snap
off
the cover
to
reveal
the
fuses.
You’ll
find
a
fuse
puller
clipped
to
the
inside
of the cover.
Place
the
wide
end of the fuse puller
over
the plastic
end of the fuse.
Squeeze
the
ends
over
the fuse and
pull it out.
Spare fuses
are
located
in
the
slots
labeled
“Spare”
on
the
following
chart.
When
finished,
replace
the
cover
by
snapping
it back
up
into
place.

Passenger’s
Side
Fuse
Block
Additional
fuses
are
located
in the
relay
center,
on
the
passenger’s
side,
below
the instrument
panel. You
must
remove
the
sound
insulator
on
the
right
side
of
the
passenger
footwell
to
replace
these
fuses.
Since replacing
these
fuses
is
difficult,
we
recommend
that
you see your
retailer
if
you
need
one
replaced.
