  1. Fuel Mileage Screen - Reset

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    Might be a stupid question, but how do I reset the Fuel Economy screen? I've been watching the way I drive and can make it move higher (good thing) by adjusting my "lead" foot. What I can't figure out is how to reset it, for example when I fill up the tank again? Thanks for the advice...
  2. Keeping Cashmire interior clean

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    I'm contemplating buying a crystal red CTS with the cashmire interior. Being that I will be transporting musical equipment inside after late night gigs at the bar, I'm wondering how difficult it is to keep the light cashmire interior clean? I've always had dark interiors in my cars before, but...
  3. Immediate help! Accidentally did something totally STUPID! Accidently

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Okay my a/c compressor belt lately has been fairly loose, so today I went out to try and tighten it up again. Well I must have been tired still or the heat got to me, but I did something TOTALLY stupid on accident! I loosened the WRONG bolt to adjust the belt... I ended up loosening the belt...
  4. Another Stupid AC ??

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    As I mentioned before - took the car to the A/C shop - told them (once again) that I do not show any codensation dripping from under the car. They said they found the drain tube - cleaned it out - nothing came out of it at the time. After driving it home (10 mi.) with the air on - parked in the...
  5. I did something stupid that messed up my steering wheel controls

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    When I was taking out my engine to ensure the steering wheel disconnected I spun the steering wheel. What do u think I did? Break some wires? Unplug something?
  6. stupid movie...

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    That stupid Eclipse movie grosses $68.5 million on opening night. :annoyed: What the heck man? Why anyone would want to see that crap is beyond stated woman's choice between...
  7. Bought my 2004 a month ago, I feel so stupid for buying it.

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I need to vent. I sold my Lexus LS430 because in my heart I wanted something that drove like a sports car. I'm crying now for getting rid of such a great car for such a piece of junk. Not only does my V not feel like a sports car, my Lexus driveline was more solid than this car. What kind of...
  8. Stupid question about HIDs, and a question about bulb type

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    First, how can I check if I have HIDs or not? Second, in the non-HID lamp housings, this page: says the low beams use 9005XS and the high beams use 9006XS. What does the XS mean and will a 9005/9006 (no XS...
  9. Stupid brake question

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Can you see your front brake pad/caliper sticking out from the gray V embalazoned part of the brake. I may not be using the correct terminology but something black (with a silver clip on the bottom) is sticking out and against the rotor (almost). I recently heard some clicking on 3/4 turn and I...
  10. GMPP? *Stupid Question*

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    My factory warranty will be up in 2012/50,000. Do I have any hope (with my mods) of getting a GMPP once mine has expired or will I be laughed out of the dealership? I'm around 46,000 now. Thanks
  11. am i stupid for wanting to put drag radials on the V?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    as the title says, I know the stock v is known for bad wheel hop and blowing diffs, but from what i understand, sticky tires with a soft side wall will help keep the rears from spinning which should lead to less wheel hop. I know the 03-04 cobras also suffer from bad wheel hop and they claim...
  12. this maybe a stupid question...

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    how do you tell if the windshield is heated or not on a 96 sts?
  13. MAybe stupid, but can you "90" a 77-79 Fleetwood?

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Might be stupid question, but can you easily 90 out a 77-79 Caddy? I'm thinking about doing to a 77 hearse..... but is it possible? never seen one, only the 1980's.
  14. Not to sound stupid....

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    ....but what exactly was so dreadful about the diesel 350 cadillacs? I understand that early fuel injection technology wasnt great, but i work at a car dealership as a detailer and get to see a lot of cars, the VW Golf TDI has come into its own and were selling them faster than any other car...

  17. My stupid hub cap flew off while driving!!!

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    So I was driving yesterday and one of my hub caps broke off. The bolt was still there so it just broke. I am wondering if anyone is selling or knows of any for sale. Please help me because it looks really stupid with it missing. Thanks.
  18. Stupid ipod questions

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I can't get my ipod to play in my new '09 V. I know, read the manual...:bigroll: I can search through albums and songs, choose a song, but It doesn't play or have any "play" options. What's up with that In my other car all I do is plug ipod port into the bottom of the ipod and everything...
  19. stupid special bolt on motor mount!

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    There is a strange bolt on the engine mount. It's the one parallel to the ground. It looks like a star but the star part is very flat and close to the bottom. The head does appear to have some angles to it but it doesn't fit any standard or metric socket. A 15 fits loosely but not enough to...
  20. Is this a stupid idea?

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    I really want a CTS DI with MT. This is because I'm tired of automatics - I feel like a zombie driving automatic cars. I miss the connection one gets with a manual transmission car. Cadillac's only option for DI with MT is a car with FE3 suspension with 19 inch summer tires. 2 problems...
