Question about 1999 Cadillac Escalade

1 Answer

1999 cadillac esclade what relay that goes bad would cause the windshield wipers,radio and the power windows not to work

We had our window down on our cadillac trying to find out why it won't start. We found out it was a dead cell in the battery. BUT before we got a new battery we jumped the car and while we were jumping the car there was a buzzing sound coming from under the dash. Now the power windows won't work, the radio won't play and the windshield wippers won't turn on. What relay would cause this problem or is it something else.

Why was it necessary to "jump" a car with a new battery?? You probably have overloaded the electrical system,, this may be one for a professional...

SOURCE: 1995 cadillac eldorado revs up by it self

CSP, It sounds like you have a vacuum leak that is causing the IAC ( idle air control ) motor to move in and out trying to control the idle. Check all vacuum hoses on the engine for disconnect, cracked or damaged. If the hoses crack when you bend them, they need to be replaced.
Let me know what you find and we can go from there.
Regards,

SOURCE: 1999 cadillac escalade. Windows, radio,

Thanks for the advice about the BCM. The BCM is located under the center console. There are a total of 4 screws keeping it attached. Two in the center by the CD changer and two under the drink holders. I found that the harness on the BCM of my Escalade was connected but had issues. I could push or pull up and down on it and my cars functions would go on and off intermittently. I grabbed some electrical tape and zipties and tightened up the wiring by attaching it to part of the framework on the console. PROBLEM SOLVED, at least for now. By the way, the Cadillac dealer told me that it is RARE that they have to replace these BCMs. They usually need a re-program that costs around $100.

SOURCE: Windshield wipers will not turn off, I've replace the turn signal/wiper switch and still not turning off

Sounds like the PARK SWITCH within the WIPER MOTOR is at fault, Only way to beat it is relay the motor. Hope this helps

Could be your alternator. If you can get it started again. Try to have the alternator checked out.

Where is the fuse for the windshield wipers on a 1999 Saturn SL?


It is located on the fuse panel on the Passenger side.
Look for the removable panel that is located below the radio/center bezel on the right side (passenger side). It's not part of the center shifter console, but just forward of it. Remove the panel marked "Fuses"! You will find the Wiper Fuse in this panel along with the fuses for the Radio, Accessory Power Plug/Lighter, Power Door Lock & Window Relays, Fuel Pump Relay, Cruise Control fuse, exc......
Hope this info helps!

Have you check the appropriate fuses? There is most likely more than one fuse box.

Sounds like there is either a short in your electrical system,or your voltage regulator is bad.

Change alternator, now when truck running... change alternator, now when truck running the radio,wiper,power window dont work.note... Awaiting solutions Ask an Expert


well assuming you disconnected the battery when you changed the alternator then you may have had a bad secondary power wire.

assuming you did not disconnect the battery, then you may have caused a spike which killed part of your CJB...(central juntion box)...aka fuse box because the radio, wipers and windows do not share any common fuse

one further possibility could be use shorted your accessory delay relay

1999 dodge caravan 3.0 liter. fuel pump relay not getting voltage


Have you checked the ASD (Automatic Shut Down) Relay? Check to see if that is getting power. Then check to see if the ASD Relay itself is good. You do not have to use any special tools/knowledge to check this. You can change this Relay out with another Relay that is the same shape and type on a function that is known working. For example: Check to see if your Front Windshield Wipers are working. Change out the ASD Relay with this Front Windshield On/Off Relay. Check the Wipers again. If it does not work, then the ASD Relay is bad. With the Front Wiper Relay in the ASD now check for power to the Fuel Pump Relay.
One additional fact: IF the Crankshaft Position Sensor is bad the Engine will not operate at all, meaning there will be no power sent to anything including the fuel pump relay!

Windows, windsheid wipers and radio will not work


There should be a fuse box under the dash on passenger side. There are fuses to these and this is probably the issue. It may also be a wiring issue inside the fuse box.

Windshield wipers on pt cruiser


the pump wire is probably not making good connection with the pump that is why the washer fluid wont work try and clean the connection. the pump is located under the fill tank

check for a bad relay for the wipers not working. the relay will be under the hood or under the dash next to the fuses. the cover will tell you what piece is the relay. the relay controls the delay in the wipers so that is probably bad and you can get them at napa for cheap. and simple to install its just like a fuse.

Power windows work when they feel like it


It could be the switch, power has to travel though the switch to the window. It could also be a broke wire between the door and body. An easy way to check if it is getting bad is to hold the switch and open and close the door, if you find a spot where the door is opening and the window stops working and when you move the door again it starts working again. Then it is probably the wires. Hope this helps.
