Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I have recently purchased a Pioneer AVIC900BT and am having some problems finding a mounting bracket that will work with my Cadillace 2000 Seville SLS. I took the unit to Best Buy., for their assistance and was told that since there is not a "standard factory" mounting kit available they would not be able to complete the install without the unit sticking out about 1" from the dash and that custom fabrication for a mounting bracket would be necessary. I've spoke with another person in the auto stereo installation business and he gave me a part number for a double din Metra kit that would be along the lines of what I was needing to complete the install. My delimna is truely knowing whether or not this radio will or will not work in this vehicle. If it will what kind of searches or materials could be used to create a custom bracket such as the process I might use for fiberglass or a sheet of abs plastic or doors / covers etc. to cover up the 1" overage that the Best Buy installer refferred to. In looking over the existing unit while it is still mounted and eyeballing it to the unfitted new unit it would appear that the new unit would be close to being a near match to the existing size of the factory installed bose sound system. Due to various reasons I'm a little leary of following the advice of the Best Buy Tech. and I'm left wondering if he even bothered to really try to install the radio in the first place since from the get go even though several calls were placed prior to my appt. was very negative regarding the whole installation. Seems like if it involved any work they really weren't interested in helping out due to their installation and warranty policies. Thanks Much for any advice.

4. Engine to transmission mounting bolts loose.
5. Upper engine mounting bracket loose.

2001 Cadillace SLS air conditioning


It sounds like you have "zone" climate control. With "zone" climate control you can adjust the driver, passenger and sometimes other "zones" to different temperatures for the comfort of all passengers. Make sure that the Driver side is set to a cool temperature. If it is then you more than likely have a problem with the temperature controller for the driver side.

1997 Cadillace Deville: My oil pressure light comes on when I am stopped at a redlight and goes off once I give it gas. The Oil Level Sensor AND the Oil Pressure Sending Unit have both been replaced. About...


This problem is caused by a defective oil pressure sending unit on the engine in most cases. The oil pressure sending unit is located on the oil filter adapter housing on the front of the engine. It is hidden a bit behind the front engine mount bracket.

How do I R&R front motor mounts on 2000 cadillac sts


Very easy, just remove front tires and unbolt, BUT I doubt you are asking right question. Not mounts, but mount in dead front center is problem. There are 4 mounts, transmission center back, left center and right center and front center. That takes full torque of motor and heat from exhaust. GM has a shield for exhaust.

I can not figure out how to remove the alternator from a 2000 caravan w/3.3l engine. Alternator is free but I can not contort it out of the engine compartment? Any help please! Thanks Greg


I have recently done this twice to my 2000 Grand Caravan with the 3.3l engine.
1) Remove the top plate which is attached to the alternator mounting bracket held in by 3 bolts.
2) remove the alternator bolts securing the altenator to the mounting bracket.
3) pry the alternator off the bottom mounting bracket
4) turn the alternator around show you can easily see the power wires on back of the alternator and remove the 11/32 nut holding the wire to the alternator. Be careful not to drop the nut behind the engine, because you probably will never find it (experienced).
5) Disconnect the wires from the alternator
6) Remove the black cooragated tube running vertical in front of the alternator and remove the tubes hold clip from the suspension wall.
7) Slide the alrernator pully first up through the opening. You may need to rotate the alternator a little so it fits up through.

Cover does not attach to the universal bracket I purchased


Buy a drill and drill bit and make a hole in the bracket where needed. To make installation easier, use a larger that needed drill bit and add washer to screw, won't look as professional but you are not a professional anyway. Who goes around looking at ceiling fan mounts anyway???

Pioneer Super Tuner 3 Removal


If it's been installed with the original DIN mount, there are 2 small flat clips that slide in a small slot on each side of the radio. The 2 pieces of metal are pushed in to release the clips holding the radio in the bracket. Then the radio pulls out

Those clips come with the Pioneer stereo but should be available from a place that sells/installs car audio
