Question about 1998 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

98 Deville casette/radio stereo won't play after swapping to CD/Casette/radio

Hi there, recently I bought used cd/casette/radio taken out from the same 98 deville. Once installed and uncoded by the Cadillac service, the unit does everything except it won't make any sound. It's seem like there must be a bit different wiring diagram between the original unit and the one I installed. The plug on the back of the new unit is the same like at the other one so I did not have to use any converter. I hope the unit I bought (eBay) is OK... Does anybody have an idea what might be a reason of having no sound whatsoever? the door chime doesn't work either. It did with the old unit of course.

Since the replacement is a different one from the one you are replacing, the car wiring harness is probably different from the one needed for the new radio. This is a really important difference if the new one is part of a Bose system and that is not the option installed in your car. The best way to check is for you to identify the option codes for each radio and go to alldatadiy.com and compare the wiring diagrams.

The "check engine" light will "light" when there is a malfunction in the engine management system. The fault code is then stored in the computer. The computer must be scanned to retrieve these stored faults to pinpoint the malfunctioning component. We recommend buying your own scanner and doing it yourself. With a pocket scanner you can check for fault codes to find out why the light came on in the first place. You can clear your cars trouble codes after you replace the malfunctioning sensors.

Mate it's like this. If the units look identical then the answer is probably yes The japs love changing things from one car to the next Think they just grab the nearest one they can find and cd/radios are no 1 on their list

Try this: Remove the negative battery terminal for 5 minutes. Reconnect the battery termional and see if the CD player "resets" itself. This sometimes works for me.

Your best bet on that one is to go to a place that sells car audio systems or even some autoparts retailers have them,and get the proper adapter harness already made up. A few more dollars but, a whole lot less headaches.

Car Radio, Casette Player and CD Player not working


Hello Lei,

It sounds like the antenna has came loose from the back of the radio and the wiring harness is loose.

Make sure you have a good ground going to the radio, or this will cause a short and make the radio do strange things, the fact you sometimes get a signal tells me the radio is in working condition.
