Turn 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 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
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
for burned-out bulbs and then check the
fuse. See
Fuses
and Circuit Breakers
on
page
5-81.
Turn Signal
On
Chime
If
your turn signal 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.
Headlamps On
Reminder
If
you
open the driver’s door
and turn
off
the
ignition
while leaving the lamps on,
you will
hear a warning
chime.
Headlamp
High/Low-Beam
Changer
To
change the headlamps from low
beam
to high

push the turn signaVmultifunction
leveraway
from you.
When
the
high
beams
are
on,
a light on the
instrument panel
cluster
will
come
on
if
the
ignition
is
in
ON.
To
change
the
headlamps
from high beam
to
low
beam,
pull the turn signal lever toward you.

Certain electrical accessories may
not
be compatible
with 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
accessory
power outlets.
Notice:
Adding
some
electrical
equipment
to
your
vehicle
can
damage
it
or keep
other
things
from
working as they
should.
This
wouldn’t
be
covered
by
your
warranty.
Check
with
your
dealer
before
adding
electrical
equipment,
and
never
use
anything
that
exceeds
the
amperage
rating.
When adding electrical equipment, be sure to follow the
proper installation instructions included with the
equipment.
Notice:
Power outlets
are
designed
for
accessory
plugs
only. Do not
hang
any
type
of
accessory
or
accessory
bracket
from
the
plug.
Improper
use
of
the
power
outlet
can
cause
damage
not
covered
by
your warranty.
Ashtrays
and
Cigarette
Lighter
To
use
the lighter, just push it in
all
the way
and
let
go.
Notices
Don’t
put
papers
or
other
flammable
items
into
your
ashtrays.
Hot
cigarettes
or
other
smoking
materials
could
ignite them, causing
a
damaging
fire.
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.
It
can also
blow
the
fuse.

How
to Reset
the
Change
Oil
Light
The GM Oil Life SystemTM calculates when to change
your engine oil and filter based
on vehicle use.
Anytime
your oil is changed, reset the system
so
it can
calculate when the next oil change is required. If
a
situation occurs where
you
change
your oil prior to a
CHANGE OIL light being turned on, reset the system.
After changing the engine oil,
the
system
must be reset.
To reset the oil life indicator, do
the following steps:
1.
With the ignition key in
ON
(a
short time after
turning
off
the engine), press the RESET button
located in the driver's side instrument panel
fuse block. See "Instrument Panel Fuse Block"
under
Fuses and Circuit Breakers
on page
5-81.
2. When the CHANGE OIL light starts to flash, press
and hold the RESET button again.
The reset
is
complete
when
you hear the chimes and
the CHANGE
OIL
light goes out.
If
your vehicle is equipped with a
2.2L L4 ECOTEC
engine, it has a unique oil filter element. When
reinstalling the filter cap
do not exceed
18
Ib
ft
(25
N*m
).
Inspect the condition of the
O-ring and replace
if
damaged.
See
your dealer for additional information.
What
to
Do
with
Used
Oil
Used engine oil contains certain elements
that
may
be
unhealthy for your
skin
and could even
cause
cancer.
Don't let used oil stay on
your skin for
very
long.
Clean
your skin and nails with
soap
and
water, or a
good
hand cleaner. Wash or properly dispose
of
clothing or
rags containing used engine oil.
See
the
manufacturer's
warnings
about the use
and disposal of
oil
products.
Used oil can
be a threat to the environment. If
you
change
your
own oil, be sure to drain all
the oil from
the
filter before disposal. Never dispose of
oil
by putting it
in the trash, pouring it on the ground, into sewers,
or
into
streams or bodies of water. Instead, recycle it by
taking it to a place that collects used
oil.
If
you
have a
problem properly disposing of
your
used
oil,
ask
your dealer, a service station or
a local recycling
center
for help.

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

If
Power
Windows and Other
Power
Options
A
circuit breaker in the fuse panel protects the power
windows.
When the current load is too heavy, the circuit
breaker opens and closes, protecting the circuit until
the problem is fixed.
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.
There are three fuse blocks in your vehicle: two
instrument panel fuse blocks and the engine
compartment fuse
block.
There are four
spare
fuses located in the driver’s side
instrument panel end cap
for
your
use.
Instrument
Panel Fuse
Blocks
There are two fuse panels for
your vehicle. One is
located on the driver’s
side of the instrument panel and
the other is located on the passenger’s side.
