  1. Door latches

    Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum
    Just wondering if anyone has the same issuse as I do in the cold winter months. Sometimes the doors won't latch until the cabin warms up. I've sprayed wd-40 in there numerous times but the latches get stuck in the open position and the doors won't stay closed. Just curious if anyone has found a...
  2. Air Intake idea

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    so i was sitting around thinking about this. if you wrapped header wrap around the air intake hose from the maf to the throttle body, would that help keep the air intake temp? or a waste of time since once it hit the throttle body its temp will be hot also. is there a way to prove that the...
  3. Attention to detail

    Open Letters to Cadillac Corporate
    I have not had the pleasure of driving an 06 yet, however I will say that as a long time Cadillac owner and enthusiast, the attention to minor interior detail has decreased. I recently acquired an 01 DTS and I love the car. My only dislikes are small things inside. The quality of the armrest...
  4. 96 Seville trunk pull down motor keeps running

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    96 Seville with 28k miles. Trunk pull down assembly would not come up. Flipped the latches on the trunk itself, hit the trunk open button, and wiggled the pull down and the pull down came up. When I gently set the trunk down it caught and proceeded to close. It didn’t seem to close tight and...
  5. XLR Owners

    Cadillac XLR Forum 2004-2009
    Id like to take a moment and call something to your attention. As you know these cars do not have Door handles in the sense that most cars do. These are electronicly acutated latches. When i worked on the service drive I had 3 diffrent owners tell this terrible story on how after an...

  7. Uneven idle

    HT4100 4.1, 4.5, 4.9
    The car is a '92 Seville. There is a roughness at idle that becomes more pronounced with a load such as in Drive or with the AC on. The higher the engine temp the more pronounced it becomes also. Interestingly, on increasingly rare occasions, at all temps, it is barely present at all. There is...

  11. Decklid Thingies

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    I don't know what they are, but I'd like to find out. Yesterday I needed to transport a large item that hung out the back of the DTS. There was no obvious way to tie the decklid down. So, I tied some string to this plastic thing on the right corner of the decklid - right at the 90 degree...
  12. --IMPORTANT-- Rear door problem for CTS and CTS-V's in cold weather.

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I experienced the problem earlier today, and later learned that the defect has affected a lot of people. Apparently, water can freeze around the latching mechanism and impede its ability to "re-latch". After fiddling with the mechanism, I was able to keep the door shut, but I'm not sure if it's...

  16. Phase 1 phase 2 tops.

    Cadillac Allante Forum
    I have a '90 1/2 with the phase 2 convertable top. She's only got 83,000 miles. This is a very nice everyday driver, but will never be a show car. I've found the latch assembly at the windshielod header to be very tempermental, and mostly a pain in the butt. (Sometimes it latches, and sometimes...

  18. 2.4 GHZ cordless phone radiation?

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    I bought one of these yesterday, and I read something that concerned me after I bought the phone. Supposedly, there have been studies into microwave radiation done, and if you have a 2.4 GHZ phone, you are 1,000 times MORE likely to develop brain tumors than if you have a 900 MHZ cordless...

  20. Doors won't open? Please help!

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Cannot open the doors on my 89' Cadillac Deville. If the door panels must be removed to access the rods and latches, how do you remove the door panels if the door must be open to access the door panel mounting screw beneath the red door light??? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated...
