  1. Newbie. 1990 Deville won't start

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    All the dashboard lights bling, beep and light up as best as I can tell, but the car won't start. no click, no starter turning over. Checked the fuses under the steering wheel all are good. Tried to jump it to start that worked a few times and then nothing, no clicks I have very good wrenching...

  3. Mileage too LOW ??

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Looking at 1998 Deville with only 20,000 miles! Any ideas as to what to look for? Looks like tires have been replaced, but no other work is obvious. 12 year old car, 20,000 miles = 140 miles/month, if it didn't sit for 11 years. Let me know what you think.

  5. Clicking from right front wheel area

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I have a noticeable "clicking" sound coming from the LEFT (title is wrong) front wheel area. As soon as I let out the clutch and move I get a click-click sound. It is not the clutch making the noise. I can push the clutch in and out while not moving and it doesn't happen. It also doesn't...
  6. Composite vs. Sealed beam front end poll

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    There's always comments on what is the more popular front end of our beloved '80's and early '90's Broughams/Devilles. Just for fun I'd like to see which is the most liked here on the forum.
  7. 03 CTS 3.2L with shimmy during acceleration...

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    03 CTS with shimmy during acceleration and driving at 40+ mph. Recently changed the platinum 4 spark plugs because of hesitation at high speeds and accelerating at highway speeds. Don't have that problem, but there is a shimmy. I don't believe it's a balaning issue with the wheels because the...

While only present in the most southerly counties of Florida (the American crocodile cannot toleraterate temperatures of 60 degrees F or lower) and the Florida keys. Unlike the alligator, which flourishes throughout...

  10. Windshield Wiper Time on after Washer use

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Folks, Got my 2007 V a few months ago and have two minor issues that I have a question on. After I use the windshield squirters the wipers stay on for a real long time (I have checked to make sure the stalk is in the off position). Is there a way to adjust that time? Also, the prior owner...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    The car is a 2007 w/ about 80k on it. It has failed (then passed) emissions twice in the last year of it changing hands (one dealer to another. car is 1-owner). Heard and ignored parade clunk (thanks iphone and cadillac forums on the fly!). I imagine its a result of the monster under the...

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Rock 'n August is an annual week-long event in St. Albert, Alberta that's all about classic cars. There are various events throughout the week such as a cruise, drive-in movie, dinners, and an all-day show 'n shine to conclude the week (which is what I went to). I was hoping there would be more...

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Appearance Mods

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I did post this in the suspension area (no answers) --------- It's an annoying rattle-squeak (I heard a landscape truck with a trailer full of tools go by, and it sounded the same, only louder) that comes from the front end. steering, sway bars and other suspension stuff replaced OR examined and...

  16. how and where to run through firewall..? - cutout power with key on?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I'm installing cutouts and am looking for the best (easiest) place to run the wires through. The DMH come with nice terminations already soldered on. I hate to cut these to fish wires through. I was looking at the large 4" big a$$ rubber grommet for the main harness just above and behind the...
