Hey All,

It looks like I will be re-joining the Cadillac brotherhood again (after too many years involving mini-vans and 4 kids...but I digress...) My very first vehicle when I started driving in 1982 was a 1972 Sedan DeVille...owned several 72's over the next few years until about 1994, when I last had a Caddy in the stable...

I am picking up a 1984 Eldorado tomorrow. Car drives pretty nice, interior is pretty good shape...will need paint very soon, but overall decent body...All but 1 filler panel is in very good shape....

Will be needing to fix a passenger window that stopped working on the guy in the last few weeks (since I had first looked at it until now...)....New struts to hold up the hood...stuff like that...

I would love to know more about running codes thru the info center (or wherever it is done...I am starting to read up a bit on these forums)...How do I check for codes, where can I find out what the codes mean, etc.

Also, anything that I should be aware of/check first thing when I get it? Any info would be greatly appreciated...

Simultaneously press & hold the OFF & WARMER buttons. Once in the diagnostic mode HIGH FAN = YES and LOW FAN = NO to the prompts.

Decipher the codes here.
'84's had the infamous HT4100. VERY under powered and where known for head gaskets. The good news is that they could be done in the car (been there).
