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,
do the following:
1.
Turn the ignition key to RUN, then to OFF. This
will disarm the content theft
-
deterrent/alarm system
(if equipped).
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. See “Fuses and Circuit
Breakers” in the Index.
3.
Turn the ignition key 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 the vehicle. Leave the ignition in RUN.
4.
Press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons
on the first transmitter for 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
the buttons.
If the transmitters don’t work, or if you’d rather not
match the transmitters yourself, see your dealer.
2-21
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
Pontiac Roadside Assistance Center. See “Roadside
Assistance” in the Index for more information.
2-23
Entering Programming Mode
To program any feature, your vehicle must be in the
programming mode. Follow these steps:
1.
Put your key in the ignition.
2.
Turn the ignition to RUN to disarm the content
theft
-
deterrent/alarm system.
3.
Turn the ignition to OFF.
4.
Remove the RADIO fuse. This fuse is in the
main fuse block, located on the left side of your
instrument panel. See “Fuses and Circuit Breakers”
in the Index.
5.
Turn the ignition toward you to ACC.
6.
Count the number of chimes you hear. You will
hear one or two chimes depending on the features
your vehicle is equipped with. Refer to the chart
shown previously.
You can now program your choices.
To exit the programming mode, follow the steps
listed under “Leaving Programming Mode” later
in this section.
Exit Lighting and Delayed Illumination
With exit lighting, your interior lamps will come on
for up to 25 seconds when the key is removed from
the ignition.
With delayed illumination, your interior lamps will
come on and stay on for up to 25 seconds when
entering your vehicle and up to five seconds when
leaving your vehicle.
Programmable Modes
Mode 1:
Both Off
Mode 2:
Delayed Illumination Only
Mode 3:
Exit Lighting Only
Mode 4:
Both On
2-29
When your vehicle was shipped from the factory, it was
programmed in Mode 4. The mode to which the vehicle
has been programmed may have been changed since it
left the factory. To determine the mode to which your
vehicle is programmed or to program your vehicle to a
different mode, do the following:
1.
Turn the parking lamps on and off.
2.
Count the number of chimes you hear. The number
of chimes tells you which mode your vehicle is set
for. (If you do not wish to change the current mode,
you can either exit the programming mode by
following the instructions later in this section or
program the next feature available on your vehicle.)
3.
Turn the parking lamps on and off, again, until you
hear the number of chimes that corresponds to the
mode selection you want.
The mode you selected is now set. You can either exit
the programming mode by following the instructions
next in this section or program the next feature available
on your vehicle.
Exiting Programming Mode
When programming is complete, turn the ignition to
OFF and reinstall the RADIO fuse.
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.
2-36
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.
4.
Before starting the engine, be sure to unplug
and store the cord as it was before to keep it away
from moving engine parts. If you don’t, it could
be damaged.
How long should you keep the coolant heater plugged
in? The answer depends on the outside temperature, the
kind of oil you have, and some other things. Instead of
trying to list everything here, we ask that you contact
your dealer in the area where you’ll be parking your
vehicle. The dealer can give you the best advice for
that particular area.
2-51
Turn Signal/Multifunction Lever
The lever located on the left side of the steering column
includes the following:
D
Turn Signal and Lane Change Indicator
D
Headlamp High/Low
-
Beam Changer
D
Windshield Wipers
D
Windshield Washer
D
Cruise Control
Turn Signal and Lane Change Indicator
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 cluster 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.
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).
2-64
Ashtray and Cigarette Lighter
Lift up the cover to open the ashtray. To remove it, lift
up on either side of the ashtray. If you have an automatic
transmission, the ashtray is near the front of the console.
If you have a manual transmission, the ashtray is in front
of the cupholder.
NOTICE:
Don’t put papers and other things that burn
into your ashtray. If you do, cigarettes or other
smoking materials could set them on fire,
causing damage.
To use the lighter, push it in all the way and let go.
When it’s ready, it will pop back out 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.
2-65
Accessory Power Outlet
The accessory power outlet 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.
Certain accessory power plugs may not be compatible
to the accessory power outlet and could result in blown
vehicle or adapter fuses. If you experience a problem see
your dealer for additional information on the accessory
power plugs.
NOTICE:
When using the accessory power outlet:
D
The maximum load of any electrical
equipment should not exceed 3 amps.
D
Be sure to turn off any electrical equipment
when not in use. Leaving electrical
equipment on for extended periods can
drain your battery.
We recommend that you see a qualified technician or
your dealer for the proper installation of your equipment.
Floor Mats
Your vehicle’s floor mats are custom
-
fitted to the floor
wells. Be sure the driver’s floor mat is in place. If it
isn’t, it could interfere with the accelerator pedal, brake
pedal or with the clutch pedal on manual transmissions.
T
-
Top Roof Panels (If Equipped)
Removing the T-Top Roof Panels
CAUTION:
Don’t try to remove the T
-
top panel while the
vehicle is moving. Trying to remove the T
-
top
panel while the vehicle is moving could cause an
accident. The panel could fall into the vehicle and
cause you to lose control, or it could fly off and
strike another vehicle. You or others could be
injured. Remove the T
-
top panel only when the
vehicle is parked.

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 or ice, 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.
6-64
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.
The main fuse block is located behind a cover on the left
side of your instrument panel.
The other two are located in the engine compartment on
the driver’s side. 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.
