Matching Transmitter(s) To Your Vehicle
Each remote keyless entry transmitter is coded to
prevent another transmitter from unlocking your vehicle.
If a transmitter is lost or stolen, a replacement can be
purchased through your dealer. Remember to bring any
remaining transmitters with you when you go to your
dealer. When the dealer matches the replacement
transmitter to your vehicle, any remaining transmitters
must also be matched. Once your dealer has coded the
new transmitter, the lost transmitter will not unlock your
vehicle. Each vehicle can have only four transmitters
matched to it.
Have each transmitter you intend to match ready for the
next steps. To match transmitters to your vehicle:
1.
Turn the ignition to RUN, then to OFF. This will
disarm the Content Theft
-
Deterrent System (if your
vehicle has this option).
2.
Remove the RADIO fuse. This fuse is located in the
main fuse block, which is located on the left side of
your instrument panel. The RADIO fuse is located
on the lower right
-
hand corner of the panel. See
Fuses and Circuit Breakers” in the Index.
3.
Turn the ignition from OFF to RUN three times
quickly (within five seconds). The vehicle will
respond by locking the doors, unlocking the driver’s
door and releasing the hatch. Your transmitter is now
ready to match your vehicle. Leave the ignition
in RUN.
4.
Press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on
the first transmitter for up to 15 seconds. The vehicle
will respond as in Step 3.
5.
Repeat Step 4 for the remaining transmitters.
6.
When you have finished matching all of your
transmitters, replace the RADIO fuse.
7.
Check that all transmitters work by pressing
their buttons.
If the transmitters don’t work, or if you’d rather not
match the transmitters yourself, see your Pontiac dealer.

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 stays on
when you try to start the vehicle, the key may be dirty or
wet. Turn the ignition off.
Clean and dry the key. Wait about three minutes and try
again. The SECURITY light may remain on during this
time. 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 fuses (see “Fuses and Circuit Breakers” in the
Index). 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 dealer 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 dealer or a locksmith who can service the
PASS
-
Key II to have a new key made.
If you’re ever driving and the SECURITY light comes
on and stays on, you will be able to restart your engine if
you turn it off. Your PASS
-
Key II system, however, is
not working properly and must be serviced by your
dealer. Your vehicle is not protected by the
PASS
-
Key II system.
If you lose or damage a PASS
-
Key II ignition key, see
your dealer or a locksmith who can service PASS
-
Key II
to have a new key made. In an emergency, call the

New Vehicle “Break
-
In”
NOTICE:
Your vehicle doesn’t need an elaborate
“break
-
in.” But it will perform better in the long
run if you follow these guidelines:
D
Keep your speed at 55 mph (88 km/h) or
less for the first 500 miles (805 km).
D
Don’t drive at any one speed
--
fast or
slow
--
for the first 500 miles (805 km).
Don’t make full
-
throttle starts.
D
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.
D
Don’t tow a trailer during break
-
in.
See “Towing a Trailer” in the Index for
more information.

up. Usually,
the coolant heater should be plugged in a minimum of
four hours prior to starting your vehicle.
To Use the Engine Coolant Heater
1.
Turn off the engine.
2.
Open the hood and unwrap the electrical cord.
The cord is attached to the outside of the underhood
fuse box.
3.
Plug it into a normal, grounded 110
-
volt AC outlet.
CAUTION:
Plugging the cord into an ungrounded outlet
could cause an electrical shock. Also, the wrong
kind of extension cord could overheat and cause
a fire. You could be seriously injured. Plug the
cord into a properly grounded three
-
prong
110
-
volt AC outlet. If the cord won’t reach, use a
heavy
-
duty three
-
prong extension cord rated for
at least 15 amps.

As you signal a turn or a lane change, if the arrows don’t
flash but just stay on as you signal a turn or lane change,
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).
Headlamp High/Low Beam Changer
When the high beams
are on, this light on the
instrument panel also
will be on.
To change the headlamps from low beam to high or
from high beam to low, pull the turn signal lever all the
way toward you. Then release it.
Windshield Wipers
You control the windshield wipers by turning the band
with the wiper symbol on it, located on the turn
signal/multifunction lever.
For a single wiping cycle, turn the band to MIST. Hold
it there until the wipers start, then let go. The wipers will
stop after one cycle. If you want more cycles, hold the
band on MIST longer.
You can set the wiper speed for a long or short delay
between wipes. This can be very useful in light rain or
snow. Turn the band to choose the delay time. The
closer to LO, the shorter the delay.
For steady wiping at low speed, turn the band away
from you to the LO position. For high
-
speed wiping,
turn the band further, to HI. To stop the wipers, turn the
band to OFF.
Damaged wiper blades may prevent you from seeing
well enough to drive safely. To avoid damage, be sure to
clear ice and snow from the wiper blades before using
them. If they’re frozen to the windshield, carefully
loosen or thaw them. If your blades do become
damaged, get new blades or blade inserts.
Heavy snow or ice can overload your wipers. A circuit
breaker will stop them until the motor cools. Clear away
snow or ice to prevent an overload.

To use the lighter, push it in all the way and let go.
When it’s ready, it will pop back by itself.
NOTICE:
Don’t hold a cigarette lighter in with your hand
while it is heating. If you do, it won’t be able to
back away from the heating element when it’s
ready. That can make it overheat, damaging the
lighter and the heating element.
If you plug accessories into your cigarette lighter, such
as heating devices or air compressors, these accessories
should have a rated current of less than 15 amps.
Exceeding this limit will result in a blown fuse.
Sun Visors
To block out glare, you can swing down the visors.
You can also swing them to the side.
Visor Vanity Mirror
Pull down the sun visor and lift the cover to expose
the vanity mirror.
Accessory Plug
This plug is located behind a closed lid in front of the
parking brake on the console. The plug can be used to
connect electrical equipment such as a cellular phone or
a CB radio. Be sure to follow the installation
instructions included with the equipment.

Electrical System
Add-On Electrical Equipment
NOTICE:
Don’t add anything electrical to your vehicle
unless you check with your dealer 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.
Headlamps
The headlamp wiring is protected by a 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 wiring 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 and
not snow, etc., be sure to get it fixed.
Power Windows and Other Power Options
Circuit breakers 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.
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 in the wiring itself. This
greatly reduces the chance of fires caused by
electrical problems.

There are three fuse centers on your vehicle. One (main
fuse block) is located behind a cover in the left side of
your instrument panel.
The other two are in the engine compartment. Open the
cover on the boxes to expose the fuses.
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 correct size.
If you ever have a problem on the road and don’t have a
spare fuse, you can borrow one. Just pick some feature
of your car that you can get along without
--
like the
radio or cigarette lighter
--
and use its fuse, if it is the
size you need. Replace it as soon as you can.
