Question about 1991 Cadillac DeVille
With this model comes the glove box button for openning the fuel door.. the fuel door is broken & will not click close...
Will this run down the battery?
Would I have to buy a new door or can I just purchase the part inside the door?
Help.... Car will not keep a charge...
Hi cindy from the uk am i correct in thinking that the actual fuel filler door is ok? but the catch that it closes onto is worne/broken? therefor you have the door open at random ? i would think you can buy this catch seperately ? but as you mention a button in glove box opens this door ? is it electrical ? or a manual ie cable pull or push ? if electrical operated? opening then no problem of draining battery once button released however i would check up on cost of this part you req and availability first ? may i offer a temporary solution for now? if you visit local hardware store? and look at the possibility of using a kitchen unit door magnet? that you could stick using back to back tape ? on the door and other part on inside of cove that has filler pipe ? im sure that with a little imagination you could do it ? and for time being no one will know ? and not be tempted to siphon fuel from your tank having seen door is not locked ? i have done this repair on uk cars and works fine as for car battery ? not holding charge? best advice is pop along to local car store / garage ? and ask them if they could check/test battery condition ? it only takes 2 minutes ! and not usually a fee here in uk it is tested for free if your battery is old? it may have one or more cells deteriated with age and so not holdin charge if test prove battery is defect? may i suggest you shop around for best offers also surf the e bay ? hope this helps and inspires you? and wish you luck
