Google for Allante Service Tech Bulletins, Battery Parasitic Draw. & what year ur car is.
1987 -88 have probs w/ Fuse # 8 & 25 + circuit breaker 24 - fuses under ashtray.
Theyre brilliant cars but now 20-25 years old & many not properly maintained...
If ur gonna own an Allante go Ebay & get a Service Manual.

Bad ground under the dash, no doubt. Check all of your chassis ground connections.

Where is the ecu for the 1987 allante?


It is behind the right side of the instrument panel.

With that said, it deserves mention that your 1987 Cadillac Allante is capable of self-diagnostics and system status/fault code display through the Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) and the Climate Control Driver Information Center (CCDIC) panel display. It is like a professional scan tool built right into the car.

For information on how to use this feature and complete diagnostic instructions, I recommend that you subscribe to alldatadiy.com. The pricing is extremely reasonable, and all the technical/repair information you will ever need for your Cadillac can be found there. (It is the same information that I would use if you brought your vehicle to me for repair.)

I cant find the turn signal flasher relay on a 87 cadillac allante


In 1980 model vehicles this is usually attached to a wiring harness hanging free to the side of the interior fuse panel. It is about 1 inch in diameter and a metal top round type relay.

1987 cadillac allante drivers side seat track do not work


I would suggest you go to the auto parts store and pick up some White Lithium Grease Spray from CRC like this...and spray the track to get it moving again. I know this is short, but it seems like an easy fix.

If you need further clarification, let me know.

Cannot put top up on 1987 allante the latch is locked in and icannot open the latch on the pull down motor


There's a switch ( kinda same shape, color & operation method as your power seat switches) behind driver's seat near the 2 Boot/Top 'release' pull tabs,, it's mounted on the "roof" of the open compartment area behind the seats. Slide your hand along there til you feel it. It recycles the pull-down motor up & down & should release the top. Also try in the trunck, there's 2 hard plastic strings with loops at end,, pull & see if it releases it.

87 cadlliac allante battery drains with car off. cant find schematics. maybe the electric convertible motor?


Fuses are under ashtray, #8 & #25 + breaker 24 are known issues but various items run off them, u need mechanic unles u know how to trace electrical.
Known issues : definately 1987-88 & also some other years :
MAKE sure your center console is closed & Latched or lite will stay on.
At nite look see if your vanity mirrors lites, or "dome" lites or trunk lites, or brake lites are on.
