Question about 1994 Cadillac Eldorado

1 Answer

My car is having a problem involving the electrical. When i use headlights, lighter, and both rear/front hefroster the car acts as if there isnt enough power to run the lights and they go off. We just replaced the computer in it..($600.00 ouch!) and i checked the battery and alternator and they are fine. any ideas?

Look for the body ground sensor and check it out, they go bad and lose continuity.

In my 2005 ford explorer the front cigarette lighter isnt working, the rear one is. i have also changed all the fuses


I don't know about ford but I think all should be same.
Toyota T-100'S lighter. itself has its own link fuse that is built inside the socket. If you use too much power that suppose to then it burn out. So have to replace the whole new socket.

Good luck

Left turn signal works part-time


Put the hazard flashers on and see which one isnt working. If they work, then you may need to check them while thay are acting up. So when the left doesnt work, pull over and see which bulb isnt on. Its either the front or the rear.

Driving car headlights flash bright/dim rapidly ooses power shut off will not start battery @ 10.5v... replaced battery still doing the same also throttle body buzzing with ignition off. battery @ 12.6v....


if your alternator is garbage then turning your headlights on and running your car will drain that ****** till its dead. but before you do that. just make sure there isnt build up on the terminals of your battery that may be causing a very poor connection. as for the throttle body sensor. it may or may not be related. i doubt the two problems are.

How do I remove and replace the cigarette lighter socket on a 1998 Buick Riviera


The entire trim around the ash tray/cigarette lighter pulls forward, allowing access to the rear of the lighter socket. Remove the electrical connection and then turn the retainer counter-clockwise. The socket removes from the front. Reinstall reversing the procedure.

How do i replace the cigarette lighter socket on my 19994 geo prizm


Disconnect the battery!

Disconnect the wire from the rear of the cigarette lighter.

Grip the rear of the lighter, and the front chrome ring and twist counterclockwise. The two pieces will separate.

Wrap electrical tape around the open lead under the dash to prevent future electrical issues.

You can purchase a "plug" for the hole in the dashboard from most auto parts stores.

The headlights must have a vacuum hose unhooked, or they are catching on something. Can you crank them up by hand? Your lighter wipers and cruise is probably a fuse problem, or two or three fuses. Are the headlights powered by vacuum or electricity? Let me know.

Ciggarette lighter stops working when headlights turned on


Sounds like maybey someone has replaced the lighter before, and has somehow tied the ground wire into the headlight switch. Short of going through the wiring harness between the lighter and switch, I would just say run a new ground wire and get a fuse tap for the power. This will completely isolate the lighter from the rest of the electrical system. Let me know if this helps :)
