Where is the backup light sensor for 2003 cadilac deville

Hello: If you mean what turns the back-up lights on, the lights are controlled by the park neutral switch which is mounted on top of the transmission on the drivers side of the car. If you haven't checked the bulbs you need to do that first. Remove the rear license plate, then remove the screws that hold the molding behind the license plate then you can access the bulbs for the back up lights. If bulbs are good check the Park/Reverse fuse in the rear fuse block, if fuse is good check the reverse relay in the rear fuse block. The rear fuse block is on Left side under the rear bottom seat cushion.

How to replace bulb in back up lights?

Open the trunk and carefully pull off the trunk lid carpet liner by working at each black push-pin. They will be tight, so confine your pulling to as close to each as possible. Using a deepwell 10mm socket, remove the 11 (?) nut washers on the studs holding the license plate and lamp assembly onto the trunk lid. Carefully remove the entire license plate/lamp assembly. You can remove the sockets and harness if desired.

You will need to replace ALL the bulbs - why go through this again ?? You'll need 4 each #194 (tag/running lights), 4 each #3457, and 2 each 2357.

The OEM bulbs are #3057 and #1157, but the new numbers are slightly brighter. Don't worry about the backup lamp bulbs being dual-filament: the wedge base will always align the correct filaments in the socket.

Now place a dab of flexible duct seal (hardware store) around each stud base. Carefully push the assembly back into place, and using an assistant, check the operation of all circuits. OK ?? replace all the nut washers, snugging them up in a center to outside sequence to spread the loads - don't tighten each one all the way the first time - work around and around 3 times.

If you still have a bulb out or dim bulbs, then check the wire harness where it exits the left trunk hinge rail and also the harness ground at the sheet metal at the left fenderwell.

How do you replace the low beam on 2001 cadillac deville? How do you remove the headlight bulb?

Generally the low beams or high beams for that matter are a bulb that connects to a socket that is held in place by a ring or collar that is rotated to release from behind the glass and plastic headlamp assembly. Open the hood to access it, generally.
May have to remove a shroud or plastic paneling to get to it.

If you get your bulbs from the parts store, looking at the base can give you a clue as to how to replace it on the car. Make sure the O-ring seats properly and do not handle the bulb without gloves or shortly after turning off the lights (removing old bulb).

Turn signal light replacement on my 91 sedan deville

Under the hood, you should be able to find the socket for the bulb behind the lighting assembly. The back of the socket turns out about a quarter of a turn, then can easily be removed to replace the bulb.
It goes back in reverse.

How do you change the light bulb on a 2001 cadillac deville

If it is a headlight or tail light, look in the hood or trunk for the wires that connect to the back of the light housing, turn the collar where those wires go into the assembly and it should unlock. removed the bad bulb and pull it out of the socket and insert the new bulb. Be careful not to touch the element if possible with your hand. The oils in your hand will cause the bulb to overheat and burn out very quickly. reverse the process you used to remove the bulb to put the new bulb in place and make sure you lock the bulb in place by tightening the collar.
