Resetting the Power Sliding Door
The power sliding door may operate incorrectly or not at
all because of the following conditions:
A low voltage or dead battery,
disconnecting the battery, or
if the instrument panel PWR/HEATED SEAT PSD
fuse or the underhood fuse 5, 27 or 29 are removed
See “Fuses and Circuit Breakers” in the Index for more
information about your fuse panel.
If any of these conditions occur, the power sliding door
will need to be reset. If your vehicle has the optional
dual power sliding doors, both doors will have to be
reset. To do this, follow the directions listed here.
It will be easier if you read through them once before
beginning this procedure.
Check to be sure the power sliding door is unlocked
and securely closed.

dealer for service.
Canceling the Sliding Door Security Lock
Unlock the sliding door and open the door from
Move the security lock lever all the way down.
The sliding door lock will now work normally.
If the engine still does not start, and the key appears to be
undamaged, try another ignition key. At this time, you
may also want to check the instrument panel PASS KEY
fuse. If the engine still does not start with the other key,
your vehicle needs service. If your vehicle does start, the
first key may be faulty. See your dealer or a locksmith
who can service the PASS
Key III to have a new key
made. See “Fuses and Circuit Breakers” in the Index.
It is possible for the PASS
Key III decoder to learn
the transponder value of a new or replacement key. Up
to 10 additional keys may be programmed for the
vehicle. This procedure is for learning additional keys
only. If all the currently programmed keys are lost or
do not operate, you must see your dealer or a locksmith
who can service PASS
Key III to have keys made and
programmed to the system.
See your dealer or a locksmith who can service
Key III to get a new key blank that is cut
exactly as the ignition key that operates the system.
If you lose or damage your keys,
only a GM dealer can service PASS
Key III to have new
keys made. To program additional keys you will need
two current driver’s keys (black in color). You must add
a step to the following procedure. After Step 3 repeat
Steps 1 through 3 with the second current driver’s key.
Then continue with Step 4.
To program the new key:
Verify the new key has PK3 stamped on it.
Insert the ignition key in the ignition and start the engine.
If the engine will not start see your dealer for service.
After the engine has started, turn the key to OFF and
remove the key.
Insert the key to be programmed and turn it to RUN
within 10 seconds of removing the previous key.
The security message will turn off once the key has
been programmed. It may not be apparent that the
security message went on due to how quickly the key
Repeat Steps 1 through 4 if additional keys are to
If you are ever driving and the security message comes on
and stays on, you will be able to restart your engine if you
turn it off. Your PASS
Key III system, however, is not
working properly and must be serviced by your dealer.
Your vehicle is not protected by the PASS
system at this time.
If you lose or damage a PASS
Key III key, see your
dealer or a locksmith who can service PASS
Key III to
have a new key made. In an emergency, call Pontiac
Roadside Assistance. See “Roadside Assistance” in the
Index for more information.
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 for burned
out bulbs and check
the fuse. See “Bulb Replacement” and “Fuses and
Circuit Breakers” in the Index.
If you have a trailer towing option with added wiring
for the trailer lamps, the signal indicator will flash at
a normal rate even if a turn signal bulb is burned out.
Check the front and rear turn signal lamps regularly
to make sure they are working.
Turn Signal On Chime
If either turn signal is left on for more than 3/4 mile
(1.2 km), a chime will sound to let the driver know to
turn it off.
If you need to leave the signal on for more than 3/4 mile
(1.2 km), turn off the signal and then turn it back on.

the remote positive (+) terminal. You should always
use the remote positive (+) terminal instead of the
positive (+) terminal on your battery.
An electric fan can start up even when the engine
is not running and can injure you. Keep hands,
clothing and tools away from any underhood
Using a match near a battery can cause battery
gas to explode. People have been hurt doing this,
and some have been blinded. Use a flashlight if
you need more light.
Be sure the battery has enough water. You don’t
need to add water to the ACDelco
installed in every new GM vehicle. But if a
battery has filler caps, be sure the right amount
of fluid is there. If it is low, add water to take
care of that first. If you don’t, explosive gas
could be present.
Battery fluid contains acid that can burn you.
Don’t get it on you. If you accidentally get it in
your eyes or on your skin, flush the place with
water and get medical help immediately.

The headlamp wiring is protected by an internal circuit
breaker in the instrument panel fuse panel. 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.
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 get it fixed.
Power Windows and Other Power Options
Circuit breakers in the instrument panel 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
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.
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
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 or use one of the spare fuses in the underhood
fuse block. Just pick some feature of your vehicle that
you can get along without
like the radio or cigarette
and use its fuse, if it is the right amperage.
Replace it as soon as you can.
There are two fuse blocks in your vehicle: the
