  1. Courtesy lights? Not so much.

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    I recently purchased a 2002 base Deville. 100,000 miles and in very nice condition. But the courtesy/entry illumination lights don't work. If you push the manual buttons, the rear and reading lights work. The dash dimmer switch will not turn them on, doors opening won't turn them on. I pulled...
  2. 99 ELDO ETC...PLZ HELP ME before I push this car into the river!!!

    HI Everybody I want to thank everybody on this site for the great job you guys do at helping the community with the many problems many of us suffer while driving and repairing our northstar engines. My story begins with the purchase of my third Cadillac El Dorado. THis one happened to be a...
  3. Anybody have a source for plastic push pins?

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Does anyone have a source for the plastic push pins used to secure things like the splash panels in the wheel wells, the bumper covers, under the radiator splash shield, etc. I have seen them at places like Napa but not the right sizes or types originally on the car. My local GM dealer (Chevy -...
  4. 99 STS cargo net push nuts - where can I get these?

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    My 99 STS has a cargo net in the trunk, which is supposed to be held in place by six black plastic push-nuts. A few of these are missing and I've been searching the 'net to no avail to find replacements. The push nuts are slightly larger than 1" in diameter and on the top (non-threaded) side...
  5. Manual Tran. Push Start - Dead Battery

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    With modern stick shift cars like the "V," and all their computerized engine controls, is it still possible when the battery is dead to have a friend or friends push the car from the rear (with his or their hands) while you're inside, have the ignition on and pop the clutch while in gear and...
  6. Press brake, push start button, LOUD SNAP, No Start

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    I've owned my 05 STS V8 for about 4 months now and my first real problem occurred last night. As stated, I performed the usual Start routine, only to hear a loud SNAP (likely electrical, sounds like a capacitor discharging). I ended up leaving it and taking another car, but b4 trying it again...
  7. push button start and starter keeps spinning after brake release

    Cadillac STS-V Series Forum
    has anyone experienced this? What happens is the starter will keep turning ever after i release my foot from the brake. The car will not fire, like there is a bad sensor and the starter is not communicating with the iginition system. So embarassing, as people look at you in the parking lot...
  8. Push Button Start

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Hello, I have been a long time lurker on the forum but do not recall anybody asking this and i couldn't find it in the search. Is there a way to convert the ignition to push button start? Basically what i am looking for is what quite a few new cars have, the proximity sensor for unlocking...
  9. MOD: push button start engine

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Not sure if this has been brought up but auto-hubdotcom has a kit which allows you to keyless enter your car and start the engine. I am very interested and was wondering if anyone here has it. Makes for a sweet little mod. Be sure to watch the video.
  10. Play in rear wheel when I push or pull on it. Hub? Control Arm?

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    My car was parked and someone hit the left rear of 99 Deville which in turn knocked the left side of the rear bumber loose. So I quickly inspect the car and see no major damage besides the fact the left side of the bumber is hanging down (where it wraps around towards the wheel). so I rig the...
  11. Why no push button start?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I've always thought it was gimmicky for a street car, but if we have "start assist" already anyway, why not have it push button? Is it the steering column lock or something? How does the STS handle this? P.S. Off-topic: I tried searching for "push button start" and it returned a sh!tload of...
  12. 472 fuel pump with or without push rod

    500, 472, 425, 368
    hello, i plan on having a fuel pump changed on my 73 deville. does anyone know if the fuel pump for a 472 has to be connected to a pushrod that sits under the cam or does the fuel pumps arm just sit under the cam with no push rod? can you literally take it out of the box and install it or do you...
  13. Is there a way to get sunroof ALL the way back with ONE button push?

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    I hate the factory default setting on the ultraview sunroof how it only goes back 80% of the way when you push the sunroof button, and then you have to tap it a 2nd time to get it to go the rest of the way back. Has anyone re-engineered the system, analyzed the wiring schematic, etc. to figure...
  14. Push To Start Button

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Does anyone agree of having the next Escalade of having a push to start? Told the dealer today and said it was a dumb idea! Any ideas? :thehand:
  15. 25% better economy with the push of a button?

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Well, I can imagine not nearly 25%, but after a brief search, wondering if this has ever been discussed... If you turn the Traction Off in 98-04s (maybe 92-97s too?) the car will lock out first gear and always start in second. This would seem like an instant way to gain some mpg, since the...
  16. Push Pins

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Does anybody know how many different types of expansion push pins are involved between the grille, V-bumper and V lower grille? I know there are two different sizes of push pins for the upper grille but I'm not sure if the pins are any different for the bumper and lower V grille.
  17. Anyone installed a push button start system?

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007

  18. One little thing that bugs me... no push button start!

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    The XLR has it... why can't the new cts-v have it ??:annoyed: That and a full sweep calibration with the gauges before the engine starts.
  19. Out of gas. Cop helps push.

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I was driving south on the turnpike and ran out of gas. I was carrying plenty of speed. I got off at NW 12th and made a right cause there was a red light with cars in the left. I round the corner and there is nothing in site and nowhere to pull over. I roll to a stop and jump out to start...
  20. rattling sound when I push on the gas

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    my 90 eldorado runs real well, recently I noticed a rattling sound when I push on the gas. I am about due for an oil change so I dont know if that would have anything to do with it. It's the same rattle sound my moms standard car would make if you shifted to soon and didnt have enough speed...
