Question about 1989 Cadillac Seville

1 Answer

Everything involved with dashboard dims or cuts out sometimes

Everything involved with dashboard dims from time to time and is starting to completely cut off once in awhile. Not the whole car-just everything in the dash. I want to check the ground wire to make sure grounded properly to start. Not sure where it is at.

The automatic headlight switch will cause this. Push it to the off position firmly or replace it.

The "doors open" sign on dashboard keeps lighted on the whole time I am driving, although all doors are closed

Get a piece of tape,cover light and don't replace dash,for a light,what happens when you put a new dash in and it still does it,it's not the dash,your switches at doors,may be bad,check there to fuse box.Could be the wiring.

The hand brake light indicator on the dashboard on my Toyota Ipsum 2.0 SXM10 did not go off completely after I released the hand brake knob. The indicator only light dimly and sometime it go off completely...

Check the switch under the handbrake lever, it may be out of alignment or broken or it may have a wire shorting out which is causing the dash light to stay on.

Dim dashboard lights and problem starting

Could be a loose or dirty battery connection, poor battery, or alternator. Check all the cables and connections to your starter. Clean your battery posts. Have your alternator and battery checked. It sounds like you are either running off just the battery or just the alternator. One of them is not right.

Power loss while driving...

Not sure why yours lasted so long because I replaced the alternator in my '95 SL2 SIX (6) times before the engine self-destructed at 56,700 miles. They run hot because they receive little airflow where they are mounted and are physically too small to deliver the kind of power required of them.
Most chain auto parts stores will test your alternator free and I suggest you do that before growing more frustrated with it and possibly land in a dangerous situation caused by the failure of it.

Is it possible to retrofit a 92 Civiv with A/C or

Nothing is impossible, If you are going to try it, you should get a complete unit (everything related) from a wreck. However, the time and amount of work involved is likely so complicated that you will wish you never started the job. Units are installed before engine and dashboard, making it far less of a pain when at the factory.
Personally, I'd drive with the windows down or buy another car with a/c before doing this. (and I've been in the business a really long time!)

No interior or dash lights

There is a dash switch that dims the interior lights and then cuts them completely off. Check That. Fuse box is under hood and they are marked.
