  1. Hey folks, long time no write. Well my old 96 DeVille got hit by a drunk/high driver Friday. It made it through Hurricane Irma without a scratch. Had it all covered up in the driveway for the storm. We were without power for 7 days and we spent a lot of time after the storm sitting in it to get some A/C. Friday I went to top off the tank and this dumb a#$ drunk and high B#%$h hit me while I was passing her in the left lane. She was in the center lane and as we were almost right next to each other I saw her start to turn into the right lane. Then, looking forward, I caught her in the corner of my eye all of a sudden jerking the wheel to the left and right for me. I hit the horn and got the drivers side tires up in the grass trying to avoid her but she got me. She was arrested for DUI and possession of a controlled substance. She had a valid insurance card, but don't know if she still has insurance yet. Just put in a claim today. I'm sooooooooooo pissed off. The car had the original paint and still looked great. Gonna need a rear door and some minor quarter work. Problem is the car is Diamond White and there's no way they're gonna match up with that 21YO paint. RRRRRRRRRRRRRR
  2. KHE, Thanks for taking the time with the codes. The battery hasn't been touched since July 1st. Had a new Alt put in then. Thanks everyone for all the input. I'm gonna try and clean up the connections. Anyone have info on all ground locations?
  3. So a couple of days ago I was driving and the A/C temp went from 60 to 90 all by it's self. I noticed that the steering wheel controls stopped working and I had to lower the temp on the dash. As soon as I got it back to 60 the sucker went back up to 90. I had to go through that a few times before it finally stayed at 60. The radio also acted up a bit too. Today I went out and this time the temps did it again a couple of times. Then the fan kept going from high to low on me. I had to drive most of the way with my finger on the high setting to keep it running on high. The car also drive in traction control on all the time now so it takes of in 2nd gear. I get the check engine and traction control lights on. The battery and alternator are a few months old and seem fine. Car has a ton of codes that I still don't understand. I'm thinking it's time to let it go. I love this car, had it for almost 12 years now but just can't deal with all the problems anymore. Plus, don't want to sink a ton of money in a 20YO car. I'm gonna try cleaning and tightening the battery cables. How many ground wires are there and where are the locations? Here are all the codes it brought up this time. PC0603H PC1634C PC1644H IP1552H IP2510C IP2515H TC0067H TC0073C RS0061H PZ1552H IR2255H I'm also getting the check electrical system message. Me and electrical stuff just don't get along..
  4. Thanks for the info. I did have to replace the EBTCM about 8 or 9 years ago. It was making the car stay in traction control and made the traction and ABS lights stay on. Once replaced that went away. I also need to check the battery in the morning. It did sound a little low when I started the car. I know a low battery can cause bogus codes.. Lately I only drive the car once every two weeks or so.
  5. OK, I hate to ask you guys about these again, but I can never figure out the code for this car. I think I got a few, but will post them all anyways. Here's what I'm getting.. Mainly my darn traction control light comes on and stays in traction control mode. I used to be able to re start the car and it would go away, but now once it comes on it stays on. Usually the next day it's off for a while.. I love this old Caddy, but I'm thinking it may be time to let it go. PC0603 - H - Control Module Long Term Memory Reset?? PC1574 - H - Stop lamp Switch Circuit?? PC1634 - C - Ignition 1 Switch Circuit?? PC1644 - H - Traction Control Delivered Torque Output Circuit?? TC0067 - H ?? TC0073 - C ?? RS0061 - H ?? IR2255 - H ??
  6. Those are pretty small and I don't think they'd be too noticeable in the space below the bumper.
  7. Was thinking of adding something like these in the space below the bumper. http://www.autoanything.com/lights/65A1330A0A0.aspx
  8. I like the Fleetwood, but don't care for some of the interior. Seems really cheap looking and way to plastic. Most that I've seen the door panels are falling apart. They could have done better with the dash and stuff too..
  9. I was also thinking of adding a set of after market fog lights. I think they could mount in that small space below the bumper pretty easy and would look nice.. Just a thought..
  10. Yep, the 96's have plastic lenses. Thanks for the info. In the past, I have wet sanded and buffed lenses that look as bad as the one you posted, but I never used the spray max stuff.
  11. Yeah, they're as clear as glass. They look new.. Yes, I checked the adjustment on them and they're pretty much spot on.. I am getting old so it could be the eyes are out of whack too...
  12. Yeah, I like the looks of the 94-96 Deville. I had a 97 and didn't care for it.
  13. These are definitely plastic lenses. They look great with no hazing or yellowing at all.. The car is rarely out in the sun without a cover on it. I'm just trying to get some input on the bulbs. I don't want to buy them if they're not brighter. Not sure if they're returnable once opened and I hate returning stuff I get on line. Ends up costing money for nothing. Here's a pic of the car. Still look that clear..
  14. The headlights on my 96 Deville aren't too bright anymore. The plastic lenses are still very clear. The sun doesn't get to them all that much. I have the cheap GE Halogen bulbs in it now. I'd like to get a better brighter bulb, but I don't want to have to alter anything. Just looking for something better that's plug in and go. I definitely don't want the blue looking lights. Can anyone recommend anything from experience? I was looking at some on line and saw these Vision X Super white bulbs. They say super white, but they're blue. I really, REALLY, don't want a blue tint to the lights. Anyways, any recommendations?? Thanks!!
  15. Someone say they're looking for a clean 96 Deville?
