OK, if the A/C system has been discharged of R134a for any length of time, the car may have to be reset by disconnecting the battery and reconnecting after a few minutes.

That's the way my 1990 Cadillac Deville is, as it's a safety measure for preventing low freon level operation of the compressor which can damage the compressor.

My 1997 Cadillac Deville Limo hasn't had any leakage issues, so I don't know if this would work on that late of a Cadillac.

After adding r134a to the low side, and if the compressor doesn't work, then this could very well be your problem.

Good luck on this repair.

My ac went out on my 98 cadi deville a few month ago. It just tells us low refridge. we tried to put some more in and the gage to fill it up says it is still full. but since then my econ/vent; heater; rear...


on those caddys you disconnect the battery and wait a few seconds and reconnect and it will reset ac system. when it goes into service mode the system just shuts down. the battery procedure is how to reset. when the ac compressor is not engaging you will not get an accurate reading on your gauges. it might be low but the compressor must be engaged for the system to take more freon.

My cadillac concours deville say low refrigerant ac compressor off and tried to put some in is there a certain way to do it


Yes, if it is like my 1990 cadillac deville, you must first disconnect the battery for 3 or so minutes and reconnect it to clear the error message and to reset the a/c system so it will turn on when R134a is added under pressure.

Cadillac did that in 1990 so the compressor would not run without refrigerant in the system. It's a safety feature designed to save a compressor if there is a leak in the system.

If you try to add refrigerant without resetting the a/c system, then the compressor will not engage.

How do I install front strut and spring conversion kit for my 1998 Cadillac Deville? Do I need to use a spring compressor? Thank you!


Yes, a spring compressor will allow you to compress the springs enough to remove the strut units. I recommend using the spring compressor that looks like a **** shell, not the ones that have the long bolt with the two clamps on each one. The **** shell type allows you better access to the spring bolts without interference.
