  1. Temperature gauge needle is off after Thermostat change

    Cadillac ATS General Discussion Forum
    Hey Folks I changed the thermostat on my 2014 Cadillac ATS Luxury 4 cylinder non-turbo car yesterday and now I notice when I first start the car in the morning when it is still cold the needle no longer starts off on the "C" (lowest temp). It starts off about 1/4 of the way up and I know there...
  2. Water pump & t-stat: sealant? Or no sealant?

    Cadillac DTS Forum 2006 through 2011
    Greetings all, I'm working on changing the water pump (and all which that entails) on a 2008 DTS. I'm ready to begin reassembly but want to hear it from the folks "in the know"...folks in the forums tend to have knowledge in spades. On the water pump itself, as it slides into the housing &...
  3. Still getting the p0128 low coolant temp code 3.6 vin 7

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Was getting this code, so i replaced the thermostat. The rubber around the top of the thermostat was completely gone and the thermostat itself was loose and flopping around in the housing. Replaced it with a stant stock 180 degree temp thermostat. Still getting a pending p0128 code. I'm a bit...
  4. Antifreeze Reserve tank boiling over

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I have a 92 STS with the 4.9 V8, and when I'm idleing at a stop light or drive thru it starts over heating. as long as I'm moving it's fine. Temp got up to 190 degrees and I started seeing steam appear around the hood. I pulled over and opened the hood and that plastic antifreeze overflow tank...
  5. tempermental thermostat

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Thanks in advance for reading this. I bought a 98 Deville 3 months ago w/ 125K miles. The only issue was a leaky radiator which I replaced. The issue now is that most of the time the temp runs 196 - 217, but once in a while it will get up to 240+ before it cools back down. Later I found out the...

  8. Heated seats

    Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum
    While i was working on my stereo i noticed that the wire harness was already prepared for heated seats with the wires going to where the switch would go and there was already a fuse in the fuse box for it.. sooo its a long shot but do the seats have the heat pads in them from the factory? I have...
  9. The Time has Arrived

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    After lurking here about a year, the moment has arrived. A Crystal Red V-Coupe has arrived (Recaro's, performance pkge, Auto) and is on hold for me. I have to decide: Turn in my '09 CTS4 (Crystal Red) and take the V; or Hold. I know my answer - I have waited long enough and besides, my son...
  10. Recaro Seats

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I saw a coupe at the dealership today and it had Recaro seats. It's the first time I've seen them and they look great. They were black with yellow inserts. Can anyone tell me if they come in other colors and if they all get the yellow inserts. Thank you in advance for any info.
  11. Will seats from an olds 98 regency fit in '88 Brougham hearse?

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    I found a set of button style leather power seats from a early 80's Olds Regency 98, locally for sale, for only $70. They are in very good condition and he gaurantees they work. They are a color match for the interior of my '88 Brougham Hearse and i think they would look awesome in the car...
  12. Any creative ideas for installing a racing harness with stock seats?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I'm installing a 4-pt racing harness with the stock seats. The lap straps are no problem but I'm debating how to do the shoulder straps. I'd like them to disconnect quickly. I'm thinking about tapping into the rear seatbelt bolts with some sort of quick disconnect.
  13. Family, will you accept me again?

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Whats up Cadillac fam. Well lets be honest, if we are family I am the family member who moved outta reach or contact from anyone and never looked back. While I wasnt the guy to post every single thing wrong with my Caddy I do know that you guys hate people who come on here to type a question...
  14. Seats make noise

    Cadillac STS-V Series Forum
    Do any of your seats make a lot of noise when you move around on them? I read about a fix for squeaks but I'm not quite sure I understand if it's the same noises I am talking about. It doesn't seem like it's in the foundation of the seat but more in the leather and foam. Sorry for the vagueness...
  15. Remote Start and Rear Heated Seats

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    I noticed something interesting yesterday. I remote started my SRX and then about 5 minutes later went to put my Son in his child seat. While I was doing this, I noticed that the Rear Heated seat indicators were on.... It was 90 degrees outside! Now I do have the remote start option to Cool...
  16. Corvette Seats

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Corvette seats really hug the body when sitting in them. Anyone tried swapping out the front seats of a V with those out of a Vette?
  17. Air Conditioned Seats in a 2008 ESV

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Can someone tell me how cold the seats are in their ESV? I had mine to the dealer and he told me that mine worked fine. I can't tell the y are on even when set to HIGH!
  18. Ventilated seats

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    Is it feasible to add ventilated seats to a car that only came with heated? I just moved from PA to NC, and in the warmer climate it seems like the ventilated seats would be nice!
  19. '10 Front Seats

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Is it me or is there other people that think Cadillac has really dropped the ball when it comes to comfort on the front seats. I can't believe you pay 40-50k for a great car but get these awful seats. My '10 CTS has 2800 miles and the driver seating surface leather is loose and has wrinkles and...
