Question about 1998 Cadillac Eldorado

1 Answer

I have a 1998 Cadillad El Dorado. I love the vehicle to death! My only issue I am having seems to relate to some over heating of the driver side window motor... It's strange but in major hot days in and around temps over 30 degress celcius the driver side motor decides it doesn't want to go down... Then for that entire day it stays closed... I can then come out the next day after parking it in the shade and it seems to correct the problem until of course it is parked in a hot spot for a day again... I've also noted that if the battery is weak and needs replacement then the driver's side window wont work until the charge is up high enough yet passengers side never has either issue... What might be causing this?

This is typical of cadillacs. They have problems with window motors. Yours has high resistance and is a sure precursor that it is going to fail soon. as it gets hotter the resistance goes up and is so high that your motor just wont work. To solve this problem you will have to replace the window motor.
