Question about 1999 Cadillac DeVille

2 Answers

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 come on you can press the gas pedal to the floor from a dead stop and in about a 1/4 mile the car reaches about 55mph. Sometimes while driving the car with the lights on the abs light will start blinking and the lights will go out, when the lights go out there is sometimes a loud noise that sounds like gears meshing and the car jerks then the car drives normal again. please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A few things could be wrong....it 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.

It's definitely a ABS wheel sensor.

2001 cadillac deville service system stability


Whenever this warning or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module has detected a fault, it then disables the system as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Hi don't no if its traction control prob but on my A-class 160 2000 when i'm driving my steering goes very stiff and it makes it hard to turn can no lights come on it just does it pls can you help. toni.


Traction control does not make steering go stiff, it works via the ABS sensors and engine control unit. Depending on how often this fault occurs it could simply be a slipping drive belt which turns the power steering pump when under pressure

replaced front and back brakes already ??? This has nothing to do with the ABS ,traction control is part of the anti-lock brake system . Light's on DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the ABS control module . Sorry but , your best bet ,take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop , before you hurt yourself. Take's year's to learn how to diagnose these electronic control systems

Steering rack replacement on a 99 cady deville, how difficult ?


Rather difficult. Involves disconnecting the tie rod ends. Steering linkage from steering wheel. Disconnecting the power steering pump lines and unbolting the rack and pinion from the body. Not a lot of room to get at stuff.

My '99 catera speedometer doesnt work and the


You need to replace the traction control module located on the ABS pump. There are places in the US where they will rebuild it for you with warranty for about $150.
Its tricky to get off (you need to remove the rad hose between the battery and the pump to get to it, but don't disconnect the ABS module, just the TC module mounted at end of the ABS unit (has a bunch of brake lines coming out if it).

The power steering is variable assist, relative to the speed of the vehicle, so if the speedo doesn't work, then the PS won't and you should have TC and ABS lights on. The electrical connectors to the module are tricky to remove. don't force them. One connector has a sliding lock bar.

When I turn the steering wheel the low trac light


The steering wheel position, wheel speed sensors, and ABS systems are all used to provide traction control. You likely have a failure of one or more systems. Scan the ABS system and it will provide codes to help the diagnosis. Wheel speed sensors fail often, and it is likely one or more of these is contributing to the problem.
