    91 Cadillac Sixty Special - Water Leak

    This car is driving me crazy... I can't seem to figure out where the water in the rear footwells are coming from. I've cleaned out the astroroof drain tubes and so I know its not that. The trunk spare tire wheel well is a swimming pool as well. I've had this car parked for the last 5 years covered with a tarp so its not from driving it. Can anyone enlighten me, please.

    Also today, after getting it started I can't get it out of park... I pressed the brake pedal and I can hear the selenoid clicking. I disconnected the attachment at the transmission and I can move the lever manually but thats not gonna work if I have any plans on driving it or even moving it in my driveway. Anyone wanna buy her, cheap!

    I think the shifter is cable operated. It sounds like it is frozen/rusted. My rear footwells in my Buick got flooded from the swimming pool in my trunk when I first got it but I was driving it. If your not driving yours then the water must have leaked in from a window. Where are you located? I like cheap Caddys if they are close by.

    Look at the trunk opening where the rubber strip is screwed on up near the filler plate at the rear of the roof. You might have to take that strip off, but the spot welds are sometimes pulled through the metal when they built the car at the factory. It is usually in the corner where you can't see it hidden by the filler plate of rubber strip. What happens is the water leaks in where the metal is pulled through leaving a hole, water clings to the bottom of the speaker shelf behind the seat and drips down in the trunk and rear foot wells. I wish I had a picture to show you, seen a few times on cars at the junkyard when I was looking for Bose Amplifiers.

    The Shift Interlock, make sure your door is closed when you try to shift out of park. If you hear the solenoid clicking, then you might have a poor connection on the solenoid or the brake pedal switch. You could also have a poor connection at the neutral safety switch, under the manual shift lever on the transmission, or the neutral safety switch is bad.
