Question about 1980 Cadillac Eldorado

1 Answer

Car was disabled under the hood, how do I fix that?

My dad disabled my Cadillac while we were gone on vacation. The problem is, he got really sick while we were out there so he won't go out to enable it again. I know we have one on the side to disable the car but he did something under the hood. Any ideas?

Car alarm reset

take the wire off and link them together but would fix it as it can make you insurance void if the car is stolen.

Hood cable broke or came loose on 1992 coupe deville cant get hood up

You'll have to try going thru the grille or from under the bumper to access the hood latch.
You might want to look at another GM product to gauge were the latch is in your car.
Sometimes you can use a coat hanger as a hook to pull the latch from outside the grille or between the grille and hood. Or use a long screwdriver from under the bumper.

I want to disable abs and trac control for a chevy 2002 cavalier,keeps having problems went throught it with a awsome mechanic and found no issues at all im sick of this **** every winter. I want answers...

one way to disable the abs brakes is to go under the hood and remove the abs relay, the box is located under the hood on the drivers side next to the battery just pull it out and your brakes will be like regular brakes the only problem is that your brake light and traction light will stay on but if you can put up with them then that will fix your problem. hope this helps.

I bought this 1998 Cadillac Seville, the car runs great the only problem is that the power windows and the power seat's don't work......not sure where to even start to fix this problem, any ideas you can...

whenever you have more than one failed gadget, it speaks of a common problem. there is most likely a small fuse box with large current fuses under the hood and a larger fuse box with many low current fuses inside the car up under the dashboard or thereabouts. an owners manual will show you where they are. i think you are going to find that one of the large fuses is either blown or just plain gone as a prior owner got tired of messing with it. so you are going to have to figure out which of the many small fuses are in the circuit with the missing/gone large fuse and pull all of those out. if you scroll through these questions you will see a pattern of luxury car complaints around the issues of the airbag suspensions, the anti-theft/door lock stuff, and the heated seats. These things are made to get to the standard three year trade-in and not much further. So i would suspect and disable all that then put the large fuse in and start reconnecting things one by one until the fuse blows again and then permanently disable that last thing. you may well find it is the airbag suspension, and your ride is now buckboard.
good luck with that!

I have a 2004 Chrysler Pacifica - strut broke and made a hole through the hood of the car - is this an issue with this car

I had this same thing happen to me on the right front. Fortunately I caught mine before it made it through to the outer sheet metal of the hood. I replace the struts and upper mounts to fix.

you either have a bad key...did you try more than one key?
Two other things can be wrong..
1) the igintion cylnder (where ya put the key in) has samll wires that sense the pellet in the keys for your car, and often they break, and the cylnder has to be replaced.
2) the passkey module has gone bad.
Either of these problems can be fixed by any compatent mechanic that has cadillac experience.

'89 Eldorado starts fine but dies

It take two people to find out if it has sparkplug fire. If it is not getting any fuel you may pour a small amount into throttle body and see if it will start if you have spark. If you turn it over trying to start it you should see the injectors squirting fuel down into it.

92 cadillac deville

I sort of had this problem with my 92 deville...u could try to pull bak a lil more on the release and push forward after that while someone else is outside the car...the person outside the car should try giving the hood a lil push n if it pops up a bit...the latch under the hood is located to the left side next to the grill.
