Question about 1976 Cadillac Deville

Open Question

79 Cadillac Coupe Deville that when I stepped on the dimmer switch it stuck and my headlights went out. When I manually pulled out the dimmer switch it fell apart, I replaced it along with the pig tail that had melted somewhat , but my headlights still won't come on. All other lights work. I have checked fuses. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: change oxygen sensor

Under hood, center, front engine area, above exhaust pipe flange, mounted in exhaust manifold
Under hood, center, rear engine area, above exhaust pipe flange, mounted in exhaust manifold

The oxygen sensor may be difficult to remove when the engine temperature is below 120°F (48°C). Excessive force may damage the threads in the exhaust manifold of exhaust pipe.

  1. Start the engine and let it warm up to 120°F (48°C), stop the engine and disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Detach the electrical connector from the oxygen sensor.
  3. Using a special, oxygen sensor socket, remove the oxygen sensor from the exhaust manifold or exhaust pipe.

NOTE A special anti-seize compound is used on the oxygen sensor threads. The compound consists of liquid graphite and glass beads. The graphite will burn away, but the glass beads will remain, making the sensor easier to remove. New or service sensors will already have the compound applied to the threads. If an oxygen sensor is removed from the engine and if for any reason, it is to be reinstalled, the threads must have this anti-seize compound applied before installation.
  1. Coat the threads of the oxygen sensor with anti-seize compound 5613695 or equivalent.
  2. Install the sensor and tighten it to 30 ft. lbs. (40 Nm).
  3. Reattach the electrical connector to the sensor and the negative battery cable.

Headlights stopped working

I think it's either the headlight switch or the dimmer switch. I would get a manual on your car. Head light switch you have to take apart the colum to replace it.

Headlights wont come on but all others do. 1975 cadillac eldorado

The headlight switch contains a circuit breaker for the headlights. You would need to know if you have power in and out of the headlight switch for the headlight circuit. You may need a new switch.

Dimmer switch is on the floor, right? remove dimmer switch and replace with new one. Probably all rusted and corroded inside, you may have blow the brake switch when you hit the dimmer, also check the wiring to both the dimmer and the brake switches.

Has the light been going to out slowly or happened all at once?

Have you turned the Dimmer all the way off or did you blow a fuse?

There is a Wheel or know that you can adjust the Dimmer on the Gauges, check and see if someone accicently turned it all the way off..

The headlights on my 1978 cadillac sedan deville do not work. i tried changing the headlights but that didnt work. im thinking its the fuse. which fuse goes to the headlights

Hello, Check the wires at the floor dimmer switch, if they are burned the follow the wires to the relay they could also be burned. THE LAST RESORT WOULD BE TO CHECK WIRES AT THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH. Make sure you have 12 volts at the headlight switch, if you don't the you could have a failed fusible link at the starter.

My electronic seat control stoped working

Sounds like no power to the seat motor or yransmission. There isnt a fuse for the seats, First start with the seat switch. It might be just loose ( a common fault ) If not loose, take a test light and start checking for power. . Possible bad switch, motor, transmission, or wiring.
