SOURCE: 1996 cadillac sts overheating no apperant reason,

Same problem with my 96 cadillac, don't be a fool like me, or anybodyelse and replace things such as RADIATOR, THERMOSTAT, WATER PUMP, HEATER CORE, HOSES, RADIATOR CAPS, RADIATOR FANS, And don't waste all of your money on coolant like i did. It is either Head Gasket, or Head Bolts pulled. I have replaced everything above and more, and still overheats, just as other people said and told me HEAD GASKET and i did not listen, now i wasted all of my money on stuff that did not need to be replaced. I'm sure you have a Northstar? Like me? One of the worst engines ever built in my book. Sell it quick if you do not have the money to fix it with, which is very costly. Or get a 4.9 which is more stable.

SOURCE: how to get the parking brake off

The parking brake manual release lever is underneath the dashboard,on the left side.
Position yourself so that you can see under the dash, you should see the mechanism with a small metal lever.
Also, if your parking brake does not release when you put it in gear,the vacuum line is either blocked,kinked or disconnected, or the vacuum diaphragm on the release mechanism needs replacing.

SOURCE: my 1996 cadillac sts is overheating.. ook how do i

There is no need to purge the air out of the cooling system as it is self purging on the northstar engine.
The most common overheating problem with the Northstar engine is a blocked purge line. It's job is to purge air out of the cooling system.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank,this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank or trace the hose further back until you locate the blockage.

2006 Cadillac STS driver side door lock doesn't activate when I approach the car (as it's supposed to). Key fob also doesn't activate the lock or unlock features. All other doors and trunk operate...


It actually sounds like the micro switch in the drivers door that reads the key fob is bad, if the key works and the fob works on the other doors and the trunk. You will most likely need to have the door handle replaced, they're not very expensive by themselves but it can be a lot of work.

2001 cadillac sls parked on sloping driveway with emergency brake on. Emergency brake will not release when car turned on and put in gear. Will not release by pulling down on yellow brake release lever...


There is likely a siezed cable or caliper,possibly because the hand brake hasn't been used regularly.Jack up the rear of the car,see which wheel,or both are stuck.The cable(s) will then need to be cut close to the wheel,or possibly hammered back.

Problem with AC, dual climate zones


The temperature blend door on the driver's side might be broken or stuck. Also, if this vehicle does not have the correct amount of refrigerant, it will do what you are describing.
