PASS-Key III uses a radio frequency transponder in
the key that matches a decoder in your vehicle.
PASS-Key
®
III Electronic
Immobilizer Operation
The vehicle is equipped with PASS-Key
®
III
(Personalized Automotive Security System)
theft-deterrent system. PASS-Key
®
III is a passive
theft-deterrent system.
The system is automatically armed when the
key is removed from the ignition.
You do not have to manually arm or disarm the system.
The security light will come on if there is a problem
with arming or disarming the theft-deterrent system.
PASS-Key
®
III uses a transponder in the ignition
key that matches a decoder in the vehicle.
When the PASS-Key
®
III system senses that the wrong
key has been inserted into the ignition, it shuts down the
vehicle’s starter and fuel systems. The starter will not
work and fuel will stop flowing to the engine. If someone
tries to start the vehicle again with the wrong key, the
vehicle will not start. Anyone using a trial-and-error
method to start the vehicle will be discouraged to do so
because of the high number of electrical key codes.
When trying to start the vehicle, if the engine does not
start and the STARTING DISABLED DUE TO THEFT
SYSTEM warning message on the Driver Information
Center (DIC) comes on, there may be a problem
with your theft-deterrent system. Turn the ignition off
and try again.
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 fuse. See
Fuses and
Circuit Breakers on page 5-121
. If the engine still does
not start with the other key, the vehicle needs service.

Turn and Lane-Change Signals
To signal a turn, move the turn signal lever located on
the left side of the steering column all the way up
or down. The lever returns automatically when the turn
is complete.
An arrow on the instrument
panel cluster will flash in
the direction of the
turn or lane change.
If the vehicle is equipped with the Head-Up-Display
(HUD), a right or left turn signal will appear in the
HUD area when making turns or lane changes.
See
Head-Up Display (HUD) on page 3-23
for more
information.
Raise or lower the lever until the arrow starts to flash
to signal a lane change. Hold it there until the lane
change is complete. The lever returns to its original
position when it is released.
Arrows that flash rapidly when signaling for a turn or
lane change may be caused by a burned-out signal bulb.
Other drivers will not see the signal.
Replace burned-out bulbs to help avoid possible
accidents. See
Replacement Bulbs on page 5-60
,
Front Turn Signal, Parking and Fog Lamps on
page 5-57
, and
Taillamps, Turn Signal, and Stoplamps
on page 5-58
. Also, check the fuse for burned-out
bulbs if a turn signal arrow fails to work when signaling
a turn. See
Fuses and Circuit Breakers on page 5-121
for location information.
Turn Signal On Chime
If the turn signal is left on for more than 0.75 of a mile
(1.21 km), a warning chime will sound and the TURN
SIGNAL ON warning message will appear on the
Driver Information Center (DIC) display. See “Turn
Signal On” under
DIC Warnings and Messages
on page 3-67
.

Care of the HUD
Clean the inside of the windshield as needed to remove
any dirt or film that could reduce the sharpness or
clarity of the HUD image.
To clean the HUD lens, use a soft, clean cloth that
has household glass cleaner sprayed on it. Wipe the
HUD lens gently, then dry it. Do not spray cleaner
directly on the lens because the cleaner could leak
into the unit.
If You Cannot See the HUD Image
When the Ignition Is On
Is anything covering the HUD lens?
Is the HUD dimmer setting bright enough?
Is the HUD image adjusted to the proper height?
Are you wearing polarized sunglasses?
Still no HUD image? Check the fuse in the
instrument panel fuse block. See
Instrument
Panel Fuse Block on page 5-122
.
If the HUD Image Is Not Clear
Is the HUD image too bright?
Are the windshield and HUD lens clean?
If the HUD image is not correct, contact your
dealer/retailer.
Keep in mind that the windshield is part of the HUD
system. See
Windshield Replacement on page 5-61
.
Accessory Power Outlet(s)
The vehicle has
two 12-volt outlets
which can be used
to plug in electrical
equipment.
One accessory power outlet is located on the center
console, below the front edge of the storage console.
The other is located inside the console.
Remove the tethered cap to use the outlet. When
not using the outlet, be sure to cover it with the
protective cap.
3-26
Notice:
Leaving electrical equipment plugged in for
an extended period of time while the vehicle is off
will drain the battery. Power is always supplied
to the outlets. Always unplug electrical equipment
when not in use and do not plug in equipment
that exceeds the maximum 20 ampere rating.
Certain electrical accessories may not be compatible
with the accessory power outlet and could result
in blown vehicle or adapter fuses. See your dealer/
retailer for additional information on accessory
power outlets.
Notice:
Adding any electrical equipment to your
vehicle may damage it or keep other components
from working as they should. The repairs would not
be covered by your warranty. Do not use equipment
exceeding maximum amperage rating of 20 amperes.
Check with your dealer/retailer before adding
electrical equipment.
When adding electrical equipment, be sure to follow
the proper installation instructions included with it.
Notice:
Improper use of the power outlet can
cause damage not covered by your warranty.
Do not hang any type of accessory or accessory
bracket from the plug because the power outlets
are designed for accessory power plugs only.
Ashtray(s) and Cigarette Lighter
Your vehicle may have a removable muffin tin ashtray
and cigarette lighter. The muffin tin ashtray can be
placed into the front center console cupholder. To use
the lighter, located on the center console, push it in
all the way and let go. When it is ready, it will pop back
out by itself.
Notice:
Holding a cigarette lighter in while it is
heating does not let the lighter back away from
the heating element when it is hot. Damage from
overheating can occur to the lighter or heating
element, or a fuse could be blown. Do not hold
a cigarette lighter in while it is heating.
Notice:
If you put papers, pins, or other flammable
items in the ashtray, hot cigarettes or other
smoking materials could ignite them and possibly
damage your vehicle. Never put flammable items
in the ashtray.
3-27
The oil light could also come on in two other situations:
When the ignition is on but the engine is not
running, the light will come on as a test to indicate
it is working. The light will go out when the
engine is started. If it does not come on while the
ignition is in the on position, there may be a problem
with the fuse or bulb. See
Fuses and Circuit
Breakers on page 5-121
.
If the brakes are applied quickly and the vehicle
makes a hard stop, the light may come on for a
moment. This is normal.
{
CAUTION:
Do not keep driving if the oil pressure is low.
If you do, your engine can become so hot that
it catches fire. You or others could be burned.
Check your oil as soon as possible and have
your vehicle serviced.
Notice:
Lack of proper engine oil maintenance may
damage the engine. The repairs would not be covered
by your warranty. Always follow the maintenance
schedule in this manual for changing engine oil.
Fog Lamp Light
The fog lamp light will
come on when the fog
lamps are in use.
The light will go out when the fog lamps are turned off.
See
Fog Lamps on page 3-18
for more information.
Cruise Control Light
This light comes on
whenever you set the
cruise control.
The light goes out when the cruise control is turned off.

Engine Oil
Checking Engine Oil
It is a good idea to check the engine oil every time you
get fuel. In order to get an accurate reading, the oil
must be warm and the vehicle must be on level ground.
The engine oil dipstick handle is a yellow loop. See
Engine Compartment Overview on page 5-12
for
the location of the engine oil dipstick.
1. Turn off the engine and give the oil several minutes
to drain back into the oil pan. If you do not do this,
the oil dipstick might not show the actual level.
2. Pull out the dipstick and clean it with a paper towel
or cloth, then push it back in all the way. Remove it
again, keeping the tip down, and check the level.
5-15
3. Turn off the ignition on both vehicles. Unplug
unnecessary accessories plugged into the cigarette
lighter or the accessory power outlet. Turn off the
radio and all lamps that are not needed. This will
avoid sparks and help save both batteries. And it
could save the radio!
4. Open the hood on the other vehicle and locate the
positive (+) and negative (
) terminal locations on
that vehicle.
You will not use your vehicle’s battery for jump
starting. It has a remote positive (+) jump starting
terminal, located on the underhood fuse block, for
that purpose.
If your vehicle has one of
the 3.8L V6 engines, to
uncover the remote
positive (+) terminal, press
the tab at the bottom of
the fuse block and lift
the cover up.
If your vehicle has the
5.3L V8 engine, to uncover
the remote positive (+)
terminal, remove the fuse
block cover.

Production options and special equipment
Do not remove this label from the vehicle.
Electrical System
Add-On Electrical Equipment
Notice:
Do not add anything electrical to your
vehicle unless you check with your dealer/retailer
first. Some electrical equipment can damage your
vehicle and the damage would not be covered by
your warranty. Some add-on electrical equipment can
keep other components from working as they should.
Add-on equipment can drain your vehicle’s battery, even
if your vehicle is not operating.
Your vehicle has an airbag system. Before attempting to
add anything electrical to your vehicle, see
Servicing
Your Airbag-Equipped Vehicle on page 1-64
.
Headlamp Wiring
The headlamp wiring is protected by fuses in the fuse
block. An electrical overload will cause the lamps to turn
off. If this happens, have your headlamp wiring checked
right away.
5-120
Windshield Wiper Fuses
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 block 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. This greatly reduces the
chance of fires 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 you
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 some 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.
5-121
Instrument Panel Fuse Block
Some fuses are in a fuse
block located on the end
of the instrument panel on
the passenger side.
To get to the fuse block lift up on the side panel. A fuse
