This is not intended for the novice-however if it is a telecopic steering wheel-not just a tilt. You will need not only a steering wheel puller,and a compresor for the plate , but a metric insert for the telescopic area of the shaft-LOts of things can go arie if you have no experiance in this-It is even tough for begining Locksmiths.

SOURCE: steering problem

What i can recall the only removable electronics is the complete turn signal assembly or the other would be the electronic piece that is actually the key reminder buzzer that reminds when key is left in ignition while engine is off...This looks like two flat copper match sticks attatched to a 1 inch piece of plastic... Well enough of my guesing.. if you were to go to an auto parts store and look at a motors repair manual for a chevy steering column little if anything has actually changed in the design with the tilt steering column which is probably why you originally took it apart because of the tilt torx bolts coming loose... I hope you used locktite when you reassembled to makesure it doesnt happen again....Good Luck

First do you have a sterring wheel puller. Can't remove the steering wheel without one. Quite an involved job including snaking the electrical connector end through the steering column. I wouldn't recommend it to the novice

You probably have problems with transmission switch wich is on "Park" at that time, but sensor sends a signal that transmission is in gear. Try to start your car on "Neutral". It might help and indicate a problem for shure

My 1994 cadillac Fleetwood brougham power steering pump with electric variable orifice is not working is there a bypass system i could use?


Hi there, sorry to say I do not think so. If the power steering system is specialised, designed for the car, there is unlikely to be another backup system to substitute for it when it breaks.. If the PAS pump is broken then it is a matter of replacing it. Please check the link below for sellers of recycled parts

Can you disconnect the shifter at the transmission and move the shift arm ? Make sure the parking brake is set first.
You may have to disassemble the steering column to un-jam the key cylinder and shifter.

How to replace the turn signal switch in a 1992 Cadilac?


Turn Signal Switch REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION
Some models covered by this manual may be equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), which uses an air bag. Whenever working near any of the SRS components, such as the impact sensors, the air bag module, steering column, and instrument panel disable the SRS. Deville, Eldorado, Seville, and Fleetwood - Early Models
  1. Disable the SIR system.
    1. On Deville and Fleetwood, remove the left lower sound insulator. On Eldorado and Seville, remove the left side sound insulator.
    2. Remove the Connector Position Assurance (CPA) and detach the yellow 2-way connector at the base of the steering column.
    3. Remove the steering wheel.
    4. Make sure the ignition switch is in the LOCK position to prevent the SIR coil assembly from going off-center.
  2. Remove the SIR coil assembly retaining ring and the coil assembly. Allow the coil to hang freely. WARNING
    The SIR coil assembly will become off-center if the steering column is separated from the steering gear and is allowed to rotate or if the centering spring is pushed down, letting the hub rotate while the coil is removed from the column.
  3. Remove the wave washer.
  4. Use tool J-23653-C or equivalents, to depress the shaft lock, then remove and discard the shaft lock retaining ring.
  5. Remove the shaft lock.
  6. Remove the turn signal canceling cam assembly.
  7. Remove the upper bearing spring, upper bearing inner race seat and inner race.
  8. Move the turn signal switch to the RIGHT TURN position.
  9. On Deville, Fleetwood, and 1990 Eldorado, and Seville, remove the multi-function turn signal lever as follows:
    1. Make sure the lever is in the OFF position.
    2. Remove the access cover from the steering column housing.
    3. Detach the cruise control wiring connector. Note the position of the connector when installed in the column.
    4. Pull the lever straight out of the turn signal switch.
  10. On Eldorado and Seville, remove the multi-function turn signal lever as follows:
    1. On 1992-93 vehicles, slide the connector cover toward the front of the vehicle.
    2. Unplug the electrical connector. On 1991 vehicles, note the position of the connector when installed in the column.
    3. Push the lever straight in, rotate clockwise 1?4 turn and pull the lever out of the switch.
  11. On Deville, Fleetwood, and Eldorado and Seville, remove the screw, button, spring, and hazard warning switch knob.
  12. On Deville and Fleetwood, remove the one signal switch arm retaining screw. On Eldorado and Seville, remove the 2 signal switch arm retaining screws. Remove the signal switch arm.
  13. Remove the turn signal switch retaining screws.
  14. Remove the wiring protector and detach the turn signal switch connector.

Igntion lock cylinder?? Im trying to do it on my 1993 cadillac fleetwood?? but im not sure what to take off first or how to install it?? i have my original keys and they usually dont work, once the key is...


It is usually the lock cylinder that is bad. Is the steering column round? And is it telescopic? It does require some special tools to change the cylinder.

I need a diagram for a 1965 cadillac tilt telescoping column


Dave , I have one in my cj5. The info I got on it was that it was out of a Cadillac Fleetwood from 69-1976. I was able to get a switch from Rock auto for it.It is basicly the same as any other GM column. They were also use in other gm models in those years. Larry n6ifp@sbcglobal.net

1996 fleetwood brougham right turn signal will not cancel automatically. What are the steps necessary to dismantle the SIR and steering wheel/column to install a new turn signal part. Is the hazard switch...


You may have the tools, but you should pay particular attention to the warnings about the air bag. That module contains a very powerful explosive that can activate even with all power removed, and can present a very serious hazard during removal to get at the turn signal assembly. I strongly recommend either letting a pro do it, or at least get the GM service manual for the vehicle and follow the instructions very carefully.

Just bought a "94" Sedan Deville and turn signals not working. Where is the flasher unit located?


it's attached to the steering column you have to take off the kick plate and metal shield under the steering wheel the flasher is going to be a black electronic box clipped to the steering column or nearby if it's been serviced before.

if all else fails go buy the flasher so you know what it looks like.

Should either be on the under-dash fuse panel or under the edge of the dash near the steering column. To figure out if you are looking at the directional flasher or the four way, turn the hazard flasher on and find that one first. the directional one is identical but will be making no clicking noise.
