I bought my 83 deville for 2500 the engine and everything else is in good shape i went to a mechanic who said it should last a long time but the power locks do not work and the speedometer and what tells how many miles you have gone doesn't work. Does anybody have an idea what i can do to fix these problems.

^^ Exactly what he said.

The speedo cable is probably broken, which is a fairly easy fix. The guy who sold me my 78 knew the speedometer cluster internals were broken so he melted the speedo cable and claimed that was it... what a douchebag... sorry just venting.
