Question about 1994 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

Need to replace 1994 Cadillac Sedan Deville Trunk emblem

I got a new trunk emblem because the old one that has sliding cover that hides the key lock cylinder broke off (cover) so I have this new cover and can not figure how to get the trunk lock cylinder that has the cable running to it for remote release free from cover and free from trunk
Is there a DIY proceedure for this, I think I need to remove the plastic casing that hugs the back of the key lock cylinder but do not want to break it off, is there a way this snaps off or is there a turn and twist or are there hidden clips. its kinda tight in that inside trunk area and thought this would be an easy job once removing the U clip that holds the key lock cylinder in place against the trunk inside.

Please help
Thanks, James

    C17hydro, thanks, I will give it a shot this weekend. I just looks like that plastic cover on the backside of the trunk cylinder looks impossible to "pop" off with out breaking it. Pulling on the Cable that goes into it also may break or be damaged.

    I think I will definitly take some pictures for futhur comment incase anyone else can benifit from this DIY proceedure.

Dead battery so trunk won't open


You should have a trunk lock cylinder in the trunk lid. Look to the right side of the license l plate by the license plate light and you will see a black plastic cover. Remove the cover to expose the lock cylinder then use your key.

A new ign lock cylinder is about $41.00 . Find wire at bottom of steering column just behind lower cover. Unplug wire and plug new lock cylinder wire into it. Place your old key with chip in it into the new cylinder. Now with a copy of old key or extra key start car. Hide new lock cylinder under dash and problem solved.

There should be a key slot in the trunk emblem, or the emblem will spin to reveal it. If the key just spins it needs a new door lock cylinder. You can see my previous solutions for how to remove it.

Hey i have a 1991 buick park ave i lost my keys i went to the dealer to get one made they said its to old no codes are comen up what do i do please help


You will have to replace the ignition lock cylinder and it will come with a new ignition key. As for the doors/trunk you will most likely have to hire a locksmith to make you a new one. Or you can replace all of the door lock cylinders as well. See links below.

I got a 1992 Saturn SC2. Someone, unsuccessfully


There is a nice video on this over on youtube. Shows the guy pulling off the plastic covers and removing the lock cylinder. You can buy a new one from a dealer, cost about 65.00 and you have to get it keyed, but I think you can buy a generic GM lock cylinder with a key from autozone or advance.

Note I have had an official saturn lock cylinder sitting at a Chevy dealer for a week now as they can not figure out how to key it. Nice to have your keys match the doors and trunk. If you go with a generic one your new ignition key will not match your doors and trunk.

your sunroof motor is tired, and the sunroof rails need to be checked. The key is the old style so get a new key from the dealer to get the diamond shaped one. those are unbreakable. Let me know if the sunroof cover (the carpet patch that keeps the light out) is sliding ok or if it is displaced

to program a new key:
open the car while locked with the new key via the door key-hole
sit inside and close all doors.

put the key in the ignition and turn to the second position (do not start, just to the ON position) and then back off (without removing the key) 3 times.

take the key out and press and hold the lock button (BMW EMBLEM) and with your other hand press the unlock button three times and let go of the keys.

you will hear the dorrs lock and then unlock.

the key is then programmed.

Cadillac seville won't start


I've got an even cheaper and easier solution, instead of buying a new cylinder, find that plug and snip the orange wires going to the old cylinder.Then remove the resistor chip from the key and solder each of the the wires to each side. this will fool the car into thinking the correct resistor chip is in place, allowing you to use the original key or any copies with or without resistor chips. i just did this to my caddy and it roared to life! :)
