    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    Hello, I have a 2003 Escalade (not ESV or EXT) and wanted to know if the rear lift gate locks (not the glass portion but the whole thing). I lock the car with key fob and I open the liftgate and it opens and the alarm goes off. Is it supposed to lock when I click the lock button on the fob or is...
  5. 02 Escalade stopped shifting - now back to shifting

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    Have a 2002 Escalade with 213k miles on it. Was driving today and the vehicle started to slip gears - slowly at first and then really bad. Pulled over and nothing worked when shifting - reverse or drive. There was no loud clunk as when the last transmission went some years ago. No issues with...
  6. 2005 Escalade quote. Is this fair or am I being taken?

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    The car has been making noises while on idle and after a turn it would get stuck on a sound that was like a raving noise. Diagnosis was the following items were done and needed replacement. I don't feel these prices are fair . What do you think? Alternator replacement including belt change $535...

    Hey all, Been a while since I needed help, but here goes.... My 2013 Escalade ESV has started doing funny things....these seem associated and possibly a CPU or wiring issue? 1. Cruise went from working, to intermittent, to not working. Also would shut off if you opened the drivers side...

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Please help!! Hello, after finding that both my compressor and shocks were shot I recently decided on going with passive rear shocks. In doing so, I removed the plugs from the old shocks and changed them out, intending to add resistors later. During this time the dash lit up like a Christmas...

    Does anyone know if it's possible to replace the 06 HVAC controls with the digital set used in 07? My dials are starting to skip and I'd like to use something better looking and more functional, preferably digital.

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Hi All, new member here but this is my 3rd Caddy. Just bought this ‘12 Platinum in Ft Myers, FL and drove it back to Buffalo. Love it. Very few issues. One I am having is the 3rd row seat won’t stay up when it’s folded up against the back of the second row. I can’t see any obvious issues...
  14. Best quality fuel injectors?

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    Hi, 06 Escalade base, 6.0l. 180k miles. Think at least one fuel injector is bad. Falls on it's face @1500-2000 rpm. Trying a couple good cleaners but don't think they will work. Have a Volant CAI, Diablo tuner and eventually a good exhaust. Looking for recommendations/ experiences on fuel...

Just replaced the brake light switch at the brake pedal and NOW... Now: No brake lights Left turn...
  16. 2007 Escalade tailgate pops when almost fully open

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Hey guys, I have a minor problem with my '07 Escalade that I thought I might try and get sorted out over the holidays. When I open the power lift gate, it opens 95% of the way perfectly but then sort of pops/snaps at the very top and falls down an inch or two. It still stays up fine and I must...
  17. Heated seats don’t work- no display when button is pressed

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Hi all, I have a 2007 Escalade that the heated seats have suddenly stopped working on. To clarify, the seats may still heat, but the display doesn’t do anything at all when any of the heated seat buttons are pressed. I don’t see any action on the screen, no bars. But the heating/cooling system...
  18. 2005 ESV idle question

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    I'm currently looking at used 2005 ESV, and after starting it, it idled rough for about a minute. The man selling it said it was a computer feature so the car and heat/A/C would get to optimal temperatures before driving the car. The seller owns his own autobody, and is restoring cars, but I...

  20. Ticking coming from my 2009 EXT

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Hey All, Long time lurker here and finally decided to take the dive in. My truck started making a ticking noise that isn’t too loud when idling if at all present but when I accelerate it picks up. It’s very noticeable and so far the only remedy is to turn on the radio. The truck came from the...
