po21= Open TPS Signal
po67= Cruise Switch shorted at Enable
po71=Intermittent MAP Signal
io39 is a suspension issue (communitcation)

since these are all "history" i would worry about them , the moment there "current" is when we need to work with it ....

Thanksso much for the reply. Much appreciated (the guys at jiffylube still don't believe me). Also, another question if you have the time:
The fan in the car (defrost and vent) only works periodically, do you think i might need a new blower motor or could it be a wire (does the blower motor either work or not work/ or could it work periodically)? Also, could electrical problems cause the car to lose power or be chuggy in acceleration?

Jamen

thats easy , dont ever take the car to jiffy lube .....i lost a transmission to those bastards ....there clueless ...

i would check the connector at the blower motor , they come loose from time to time and simply need shoved back in after a little cleaning

as for the chug and loss of power it could be a host of things , do you have a "check engine" light?

For my Review I will write about the 1994 Sedan Deville.

First is a key when your looking at just about any Cadillac, push “off” and “warmer”, this will yield any trouble codes for the car, if your looking at a Deville, write any codes down and come back and see us.
.
Stoneage: I tried this on my 94 Deville and could not get it to work.

First I assume when you say push "off" your are talking about on the climate control area. Thats the only area I see an off button. And "warmer" is the red button that raises the temp.

Does the engine need to be running or just the ignition. Do both of the buttons have to be pushed at the same time? I tried several combinations and could not see any codes come up. Where do they come up at?

Thanks!

EDIT: Oops, never mind. I got it to work!

HELP!
I am needing to know about the "codes" you mentioned.....I do not understand..."OFF" and "WARMER"??? I am lost... do you mean the A/C off ??? and the red bar for "warmer" at the same time or what??? I tried this with no luck...sorry...

I have a continous "Service Ride Control" message, that has been on for YEARS now, Cadillac says it's no problem and I could come by and have it disabled.

Also, where can you, inexpensively, purchase parts for this vehicle, since most are not being made anymore.

Can you get these coolant pellets somewhere else, besides the Cadillac dealership...which is $100. for anything!!!...

It gets VERY HOT here and since I have had more than one Caddy, I've had to have the rear view mirrors replaced a number of times...any TIPS for avoiding this happening yet again? That glue just doesn't do for the life of the car and the dealerships are fairly nice about it, but it is a hassle to go in to have 'em glue it back up.

push and hold boath of those button you mentioned at the same time , itll go into diagnostics after a second ....

as for parts , youd be surpised how reasonable most parts are outside the stealership ....but some parts , like the waterpump are worth every penny at the stealership

i remeber only paying 10 bucks for the pellets at the dealer ill check tomorrow when im there workin and make sure they still run that price and if they can still be bought

the rear view mirror issue is classic GM ....it happens , not much you can do but autozone and other parts stores carry kits to glue them back in place ...

cadillac will tell you its no problem with the service suspension light , and there right it really isnt , but it will cost you to have them bypass the system not only for the kit , but they wont touch it unless you go ahead and buy new struts thru them too ...plan on close to a grand to have them do it for you ....

also , be sure to not be a stranger around here , esp when you go to the dealer , dont be afird when they recomend various services to say "let me think about it tonight" and stop by and ask us if it is something you should do ....were here to help and have a good time ....

enjoy your 94 !
