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
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-ROADSIDE
or 1-800-762-3743.
(In
Canada,
call
1-800-268-6800).

’hrn
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
warning
chime
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

NOTICE:
Don’t

anything
electrical
to your

with
your
dealer
first.
Some
electrical
equipment
can
damage
your

system.
Before
attempting
to
add
anything
electrical
to
your
vehicle,
see
“Servicing
Your

in
the
Index.
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.
6-59
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.
