  2. Bottomed Out - Advice Needed

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Took a trip today to an unfamilar area in the Cadillac. Google maps directed us to an unpaved road which I decided to take since we had already driven for an hour. Before long the unpaved road turned into more of a trail/path, with grass in between the light treads left by the few other cars...

  5. Roof Panel Ripped Off in Car Wash

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    :banghead: was going through the car wash and got to the final stage with the wind tunnel when I saw something fly off my car. They told me they weren't responsible since the part was just held on with double sided tape. I don't blame them!! The glue must have caused it to get loose or maybe...
  6. Water in driver door panel after rain or wash, no sunroof.

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    After it rains or whenever I wash my car I always have water come out when I open the driver door. It seems like it just sits at the bottom until it is opened. The carpet on the outer edges gets wet and I am afraid of mold developing. I do not have a sun roof, where is this water coming from?

  10. Rats. Key went through the wash

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    Ugh. Water damaged and won't work. Anyway, I have an extra key, but got to wondering: I know I can open the car with the built-in key inside the fob, but is there anyway to start the car with that key? Or do you have to have the fob to start the car? Seems like you should be able to for...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    A couple weeks ago I took my car through a touchless car wash. When the system did its high pressure wash down, it went around the car twice. Both times, as it went by the windshield moving back-to-front on the passenger side, I got a solid stream of water coming down near the rearview mirror...

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    After washing the engine bay (I don't really like doing this, it was my dad's idea:rolleyes:) at the car wash last night the check engine light comes on. I thought it might go away after everything dries up, but it's still on today. It only comes on after you put the car in Drive. I pulled the...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Just want to brag a little, that's all. I washed it w/Griot's car wash, spot-free rinsed w/the cheap Mr Clean thing (works ok...gets about 75% of the spots), drove on I-17 for a few miles to dry it off, then Speed Shined the car. I like Griot's products, even though I complain how difficult the...
  20. Can you wash a car too much?

    Cadillac Detailing and Bodywork - Interior and Ext
    Ok, so I broke down and bought those "unlimited car wash passes for $29.99 a month" for the Astro and the Regal. Is there any harm in washing them every day?
