Preface
Testing the Alarm
To test the alarm:
1. From inside the vehicle, lower
the driver window and open
the driver door.
2. Get out of the vehicle, close the
door and activate the system by
locking the doors with the RKE
transmitter.
3. Wait for the security light to flash
slowly.
4. Then reach in through the
window, unlock the door with
the manual door lock and open
the door. This should set off the
alarm.
If the alarm does not sound when it
should, but the vehicle’s headlamps
flash, check to see if the horn works.
The horn fuse may be blown.
To replace the fuse, see
Fuses and
Circuit Breakers on page 5-80
.
If the alarm does not sound or the
vehicle’s headlamps do not flash,
see your dealer/retailer for service.

III+ Electronic
Immobilizer Operation
This vehicle has 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 comes on if
there is a problem with arming or
disarming the theft-deterrent system.
When the PASS-Key
®
III+ system
senses that someone is using
the wrong key, it prevents the
vehicle from starting. Anyone using
a trial-and-error method to start
the vehicle will be discouraged
because of the high number
of electrical key codes.
When trying to start the vehicle
if the engine does not start and the
security light on the instrument panel
cluster 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 not
damaged, wait about five minutes
and try another ignition key and
check the fuse. See
Fuses and
Circuit Breakers on page 5-80
.
If the engine still does not start with
the other key, the vehicle needs
service. If the vehicle does start,
the first key may be faulty. See your
dealer/retailer who can service the
PASS-Key
®
III+ to have a new key
made. In an emergency, contact
Roadside Assistance. See
Roadside
Assistance Program on page 7-6
.
It is possible for the PASS-Key
®
III+
decoder to “learn” the transponder
value of a new or replacement key.
Up to 10 keys may be programmed
for the vehicle. The following
procedure is for programming
additional keys only. If all the
currently programmed keys are
lost or do not operate, you must see
your dealer/retailer or a locksmith
who can service PASS-Key
®
III+ to
have keys made and programmed
to the system.
See your dealer/retailer or
a locksmith who can service
PASS-Key
®
III+ to get a new key
blank that is cut exactly as the
ignition key that operates the system.

CAUTION
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 electric fan.
{
CAUTION
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 do not need to add
water to the battery installed in
your new 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 do not, explosive gas
could be present.
Battery fluid contains acid that
can burn you. Do not 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.

Windshield Wiper Fuses
The windshield wiper motor is
protected by a circuit breaker and a
fuse. If the motor overheats due
to heavy snow or ice, 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 the vehicle are
protected from short circuits by
fuses. This greatly reduces
the chance of circuit overload and
fire caused by electrical problems.
There are two fuse blocks — the
underhood fuse block, and the
instrument panel fuse block.
To identify and check fuses and
relays, refer to the Fuse Usage
Chart on the inside surface of the
fuse panel door.
Instrument Panel Fuse
Block
The instrument panel fuse block is
located on the passenger side
of the lower console.
Pull the latch of the fuse box cover
straight back to access the fuses.
