To check the computer for CODES:
1. Ignition switch ON. Engine OFF
2. Simultaneously push and hold the OFF and WARMER buttons on the climate control panel for 3 seconds and release them
3. See if you get codes such as AC1347 or AC1348 or some other LETTER/NUMBER combination display on the fuel data display along with HISTORY or CURRENT with each code or codes that display...
- AC1312 = AC high side temp sensor has an open circuit.
- AC1314 = Evaporator inlet temp sensor has an open circuit.
- AC1348 = Very low AC refrigerant condition.

Try addind about 1/2 can of freon to the system and see if the compressor engages. If not, you will need to perform some diagnostic tests on the above codes. I can e-mail you the pictures and directives on how to fix the codes, But first you need to clear (ERASE) the codes from the computer and see which codes return as current or history codes which should display just after each code.

4. After the code or codes display you will see PCM?
5. Turn ignition OFF.

To clear the codes:
1. Re-enetr diagnostics like you did before and when you see PCM?
2. Push and release the LO button and you will see IPC?.
3. Push and release the LO button and you will see ACM?.
4. Push and release the HI button and you will see ACM CODES?
5. Push and release the LO button and you will see ACM CLEAR CODES?
6. Push and release the HI button and you will see ACM CODES CLEAR.
7. Turn OFF ignition key and wait 2 minutes and re-enter diagnostics like I told you in the previous e-mail and let me know what codes appear and if they are CURRENT or HISTORY.

Hope helped.

Why don't my gas gauge and my heater work in my 1989 cadilac divel


Without testing hard to say ! Your gas gauge not working could be the gauge it self is bad or the sending unit in the fuel tank is bad or somthing wrong with the BCM body computer . Are you talking about blower motor not working ? The blower motor is controlled by the BCM . Do you know how to do electronic testing ? I don't know if this year does it or not but on some cadillacs if you push the off and warmer button on the climate control panel the vehicle will show codes or will go into diagnostic mode . Been a few years , i worked at a Caddy dealer back then .You can look at free wiring diagrams at http://bbbind.com/free_tsb.html After you enter vehicle info . year ,make , model and engine size under system click on HVAC then under subsystem HVAC controls will automatically show ! Click the search button , then click on each blue link one at a time . You will see the complexity of your vehicle . Body computer , climate control panel . All electronic ! Fuel sending unit is a input to the BCM ,from there it goes to the fuel data center .

make sure you cheak the fuses they should be under the dash by your feet(i have a 1993 deville and the fusebox is by the E-Break) if any look burned either replace them with the EXACT same model (the wrong fuse might cause a fire) if you're not sure have someone else do it
