  1. Passenger side taillights quit working. Brake & turn signal still work. Thought I would see if anyone else has had this problem before I start yanking wires.
  2. Hitting 50 next month so its off on a mid life crisis I go. Already did the corvette thing years ago. looking to spend around 25000. Anyone have an opinion on a sts-v or cts-v? I heard the sts has a northstar while the cts has a ls. Is the headgaskets still an issue on the northstar? Looking for a nice cruising car that will hold its own at a stop light. Any problems common to these cars I should look for when shopping around? Thanks
  3. Anyone know if there is horn and light options for the keyless entry on a 94? I had a 96 STS and everything was programmed through the instrument cluster. Thanks.
  4. Didn't want to ruffle any feather. Got the carfax, it shows it was regularly serviced at the Cadillac dealer up until 157000 mi. The last 30000 must have been rough on it. Bought it on ebay for 230.00 put radiator, ecm,and tps to make it drivable. Runs great now maybe the head gasket problem isn't as wide spread as the internet makes it seem. Would post a pic but don't know how.
  5. That's exactly the situation I worry about. I don't go around racing, But I worry about if I floor it passing someone, there goes the motor With 190000 miles I doubt if I would fix the motor. Too bad such a nice car with a fragile engine.
  6. I everyone, First post here. Bought a 94 STS with 190000 miles. Does driving style have anything to do with the head gaskets going out or is it mostly not keeping the antifreeze changed? With the high mileage I'm worried that high rpms will blow the gaskets. Any opinions would be appreciated.
  7. My 96 sts stopped shifting higher than 2nd gear. I changed solenoids, no change. The car has lots of problems, the blower and cooling fans dont work either. Could the trans be an electrical or ground problem? Going to scrap yard if I cant figure this out.
