Question about 1997 Cadillac DeVille

2 Answers

I have a 1997 Cadillac Deville that has thrown codes 1602, 1255, and 1040. My wife was driving home last night and the display said there were problems with the ABS and power steering. After getting home and having the car parked for 5 minutes or so we smelled an acrid smoke. The car had smoke billowing out from under the hood, and, upon opening the hood, there was a small fire coming from the driver-side front area of the engine compartment. I believe it was from the ABS system.... Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    Not that I distrust the advice given, I'd be interested to hear other replies. The car gave many IPC data points but I'm not sure if they're relevant to the problem....

On this vehicle the hydrualic abs pump assembly is located right in the area described something may have penetrated the harness feeding this assembly or the abs pump motor has internally shorted depending on what kind of damage was done as to what it will take to fix start by jacking up and removing driver,s side front wheel been a little while but i think there may be debris shield that has some screws holding on remove and in front area of wheel well area the assembly i mentioned is mounted if it,s as bad as you make it sound you will see the pump assembly and the source should be noticeable follow the harness to the pump look at the connectors for melting fire damage or what not this assembly can most likely be bought thru a local salvage yard reasonably and found on www.car-part.com punch in vehicle info and part looking for and your zip code the rest you will see hope this helps if so repost

Friend, Do not drive the car. Please have the ABS replaced as the present one has gone up in smoke. There is a short circuit which has caused this damage. Have it rectified too.

My 97 cadillac deville over heated 1 time on the highway. after filling it with coolant i dont have any problems. why did it overheat that 1 time


if you are using coolant that is mixed 50-50 with water, the water will evaporate. If you are having issues and using straight antifreeze without a water mixture, you may have a small coolant leak or a small leak in the head gasket.

Oil pressure light comes on as I am driving the stop enine light


ok, change the oil to proper viscosity. This happened to me on my 1997 Cadillac Deville. The manual says that when this happens, the oil could be too thick (filled with gunk I suppose). Oil won't flow right when it hasn't been changed for a while.

Why would my 1997 cadillac deville be stuck in limp home mode?


I'm guessing you overheated the engine, since that is what does it. Now if your temp is nowhere near 240 250 and it is stuck in it. Take it to a shop and have them reset the COMP
