Hello Tradeautos.

Not sure which fuse you are looking for. Sometimes it is helpful to give us more specific information.

One is in center console, under the ashtray, behind the shifter.

The second one is the maxi fuse block beside the battery behind the RH rear seat.

And in the trunk there is another fuse panel.This diagram may help for the rear one.

    the instrument panel according to the diagram has 4 fuses that power it up.
    Fuse 1, 8, 15 and 17.
    You may need to pull the panel to check power and grounds at the plug.
    There is also a power regulator in the circuit.
    These can be a difficult one to diagnose
    Other than that it may need a new panel as it is solid state part.
    This is as large a diagram as I can send. We are not allowed enough room to send larger.

Taken from answers .com There are several fuse boxes on the Cadillac Allante. I know that, in particular, the 1993 Allante has a fuse box in the trunk, right next to the battery, underneath the ashtray assembly, and then one more in the engine compartment. For the one in the trunk-- lift the trunk. Facing the rear of the car, looking at the back window, move over to the right rear wall of the trunk and flip up the panel there. It is a carpeted panel that is not obvious. Shake that panel a bit and you will see that you can flip it up. I believe it has some Velcro tabs that keep it down. There is a fuse box sitting there inside the shell of the body once you open that flap. You won't miss it. For the one by the battery, which is located within a shelf behind the passenger seat---slide the carpeted shelfing facade towards the passenger's seat.

1989 Allante windows not powering off after 10 minutes or door opened

The window switches would not drain the battery, but the lights could.
Is there a timer for just those lights, or all of the courtesy lights ?

I have a 1989 Allante. Problem getting a key programed/problem starting/problem locking doors. I had several locksmiths go thru All 13 codes with no success. Any way to diconnect the alarm/theft system...

Hello: You have a VATS security system in your car. There is NOT any programmer9ng procedure' The key has a pellet resistor. The ignition lock cylinder reads this value and sends it to the VATS module. What happens is the wires on the lock cylinder break, then the car will not start. There are 15 different resistor values. On your computer if you will type in how to by-pass the Vats system you will get send to a web page that will tell you step by step how to do it. I have an original 1989 Cadillac Service Manual. If you want to call me at 901 4326105 I may can help you with the door lock problem.

Theyre brilliant cars but now 20-25 years old & many not properly maintained...
If ur gonna own an Allante go Ebay & get a Service Manual.
