You have warped rotors, when you press the brakes the vibration you feel if from the uneven surface. You either need to have the rotors resurfaced or if they are below the safety spec they will have to replace them.

I have a 1999 Cadillac Deville which the horn keeps sounding off by itself and it goes off when I tap the center of the steering wheel.

Problem is almost certainly the horn contacts behind the air bag on the steering wheel. Unless you are aware of and follow all the air precautions and know what you are doing, you should not attempt to fix this - take it to a dealer.

Why does my 1998 Cadillac Deville make the steering wheel shake when I brake at fast speeds ? It is very bad and would like to have repaired.

Your front rotors are warped. If they are in good shape and thick enough they may be able to turn them and make them true again.

If they are in bad shape or to thin they will need to be replaced. Check the amount of brake pad left while you are checking the rotors. If the pads are 2-4 mm they are ready to be replaced.

It also won't hurt to check the calipers to make sure the pistons move freely and check the caliper slides to make sure they are not frozen as well.

My 2004 cadillac deville is shaking in a low idle why is that

Does it occur when you apply the brakes? A warped rotor will cause a shake or shutter (primarily felt in the steering wheel and brake pedal) when the brake are applied. Most shops no longer resurface brake rotors any longer because of the reduced prices for a new replacement rotor, but resurfacing a rotor will bring the rotor true (even no wobble) and take away any brake shimmy or shaking.

To remove the ignition switch from a cadillac deville do you have to remove steer wheel

Not the entire steering wheel, but you will need to take the shell off to get to all the wiring, as well as the switch.

My turn signals dont work unless i'm srepping on

The mechanism in the steering column works you turn signal and brake lights. Odds are its bad, they break sometimes because of the tilt wheel and sometimes they just wear out. You have an air bag in your wheel, I would suggest you might want to take it to a shop. lee

I have a 1999 cadi deville, the abs and traction control lights come on and the car steers like the power steering belt has came off and the car acts like the brakes are being held on. When these lights...

A few things could be could be your brake control module, anti-lock brake system or a wheel speed sensor. The best thing to do is to get it into a garage and have them take a look at it and give you an idea of what is wrong. Either way, if you do not have the proper tools, you are better off taking it to the shop.

I hope this helps.

Unable to insert key into ignition switch

Try this pull the steering wheel as far to the left as possible and while it is in this position try to insert key. Sometimes the steering wheel lock will get in a bind and prevent the key from being inserted. Hope this helps!!!
