Question about 1992 Cadillac Seville

1 Answer

My dash lights don't work all the time.

I have a 1992 Cadillac Seville STS. My dash lights and displays only come on every once and awhile and only for a few minutes. Why? I have a gas gauge, speedometer, and a tach. The engine temp, battery voltage, trip, oil life index, odometer, and message center are digital, and the heater and air conditioning are somehow connected. Sometimes they will all work for a few minutes then turn off completly and the defrost will turn on afterward. I checked all the fuses under the hood and in the trunk as well as checked a few ground wires and relays. Is there anything else I can do myself before I have to take it to the dealer and pay them to fix it?

Then press OFF and HI together to clear all codes. Hold and wait for bars or 0's. Now start your car and let it get up to proper operating temps. Take car for aride that aincludes all phases of driving including highway speeds. Observe SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT for coming on . Assuming it does , repeat steps previously provided, read codes stored and repair accordingly. If need be contact me with new codes and I will try to assist you.

SOURCE: How do I change my rear brakes on my 2000 Cadillac

you will need to remove the parking brake cable from the caliper then remove the lower slide pin bolt, flip the caliper up and pull out the old pads and install the new ones. You should get the rotors machined for the best braking performance or replace them.

SOURCE: How do I R&R front motor mounts on 2000 cadillac sts

Very easy, just remove front tires and unbolt, BUT I doubt you are asking right question. Not mounts, but mount in dead front center is problem. There are 4 mounts, transmission center back, left center and right center and front center. That takes full torque of motor and heat from exhaust. GM has a shield for exhaust.

1999 Cadillac Seville STS. Why won't it shift?


Check that your brake lights are working, they must for gear to be engaged. Also, it might be a gearbox issue. Matbe the selector has gone wrong.
If it is staying in only one gear, are any of the lights on the dash illuminated that were not so before..

Twilight Sentinel on 2002 Cadillac Seville won't work anymore...


Sounds like the problem lies in the TWILIGHT SENTINEL AMPLIFIER unit. Connected with the dash twilight sensitivity panel. All part of the electrical circuitry. Definitely a pricey component. Hope this helps.
