Ok my Cadillac Deville is 2005 and its factory radio with just CD player , no cassette
=================
in THAT case -
it's probably tiny solderd-in-place LED's -

unless you have a soldering station - great eyesight - a very steady hand - and soldering skills -
you'd be better off simply replacing the radio -

they are pretty cheap on ebay -
the radio MUST be a NON-BOSE -
from a 2002 through 2004 Seville - or 2002 through 2005 Deville -

here is a nice looking one that also has the cassette for $50 -

BUT - unless the seller already cleared the original VIN -
it will take a trip to SOMEONE with a TECH2 scan tool -
usually - a GM dealer - the cost is typically anywhere between FREE and $100 -
and takes less than 5 minutes to do -

Do the 2005 Cadillac Deville usually ride low or have problems with shocks or suspension
=======================
ONLY when there is a problem -

the Deville should ride LEVEL - front to rear -

fast and easy method to verify this -

on a flat and level surface - use a tape measure from the floor to the arch of the wheel opening -
aligning the tape up through the center of the wheel -

ALL front wheel drive Cadillac models - Deville - Seville - Eldorado -
employ the ELC - Electronic Level Control system -

it consists of a computer - a ride height sensor - a compressor -
and specialty shocks that have built in air bladders -
that can be inflated as requited - to raise the BODY in the rear -
to compensate for additional weight in the back seat and/or trunk -
and maintain proper ride height -
