Question about 2002 Cadillac Deville

2 Answers

Cold weather makes my 2002 Deville ride hard.

I park my 2002 Deville in the garage at night. On my way to work, the ride is perfect. I leave the car outside in the weather all day while I'm working. If the tempeture has been below freezing all day, the car rides very hard. If I hit a pothole or bump in the road, you would think I was driving a sled. Seems like there's not any give on the drivers side. Any ideas what my problem could be?

My girlfriends 2000 DHS had the same problem. She leaves her car beneith the carport because she don't have a garage. When tempertures are in the low 20s and High teens the car rode like a log wagon. When the tempertures rise during the day up into the high 30s all was well. No alarm on dash so dealer said not to bring it in because code would be found and a waste of money. I found the problem by heating up the rear shock with a torch and the car rode smooth. Removed the shock and found water and when compressed the water gushed out. Got replacement shocks online from low mileage deville for $120 pair. Replaced dryer so moisture would not ruin replaced shocks. New shocks was $800. That is what your problem is my friend. Your dryer is not doing the job in keeping moisture out of your system. Paid online $35.00 for dryer.

Could be the neutral safely switch is still not adjusted properly. With your foot on the brake and the transmission in neutral, move the shifter a little bit in either direction while holding the key in the start position. If the starter engages, the switch needs to be adjusted.

U can't shift it out of park because the battery is dead, park is locked until the brak lights are activated (no power no lights), this 12 volt brak light signal un-locks the park solenoid.
