So far I have had experience with four different 92-93 Cadillac's. My 93 Sixty Special, a 92 deville, a 92 coupe deville and a 93 Deville. I highly advise to check the relays in the relay center under the hood if the ABS and the traction off lights are one.
On 3 of the cars the Anti-Lock and Traction Off lights would come one and stay on upon start-up. On my 93 Sixty Special, they dont come on till I get to about ten mph.
In the under the hood relay center, you most likely will have four black relays under the maxi-fuse station. Starting from the left, passenger side going to the right they are as follows.
ABS Pump Motor Relay - ABS System Relay - High Radiator fan Speed Relay - low speed radiator fan relay.
If they lights go off upon startup and then come one when you take off then the first relay for the abs motor may be bad. Swap it out with one from the radiator side. If the lights stay on upon start-up try swapping out the second relay with one of the fan ones. I have fixed ABS systems this way so far with no other problems. If this doesnt work for you then there may be another problem. The Teves system used with these cars are very reliable, a lot more reliable then the older system used in 90 and previous years. If the lights dont come on until you get going and the relay isnt the problem, then you most likely have a bad pump motor or pump motor sensor. I figured I would share this with everybody because I know there are some people getting tired of looking at those orange lights. If you dont have Traction Control, the same applies as long as it is a 92-93.
I've been browsing thru ur archives for a month now; since contemplating purchase of a 92 Fleetwood here in Dubai (UAE); done 160000 kms, ABS problem; TRACTION OFF & ANTI LOCK lighted on the instrument panel; besides CHECK CCR lighted on the panel left to the steering (below). Furthermore, does the 92 Fleetwood have cruise?
BTW I am contemplating the purchase decision coming Saturday :-) I do have other options like a 2001 Catair Caddy for USD 10,000... and 95 STS for USD 2,000 but the owner says "EVERY MONTH ON AN AVERAGE I SPEND USD 100+ ON REPAIRS + WASTED TIME AT MECHANICS..."
KEEP IN MIND THAT I'VE ALWAYS LOVED CADDY'S SINCE WHEN I WAS A CHILD AND THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE THAT I CAN REALIZE TAT DREAM.
Considering you are all PROS at Caddy's; is it a good buy at USD 1,500? and how much should I expect to spend on it?
