    Cars, Classics 1959 to 1977. Also love the Eldorado's 1994 to 2002
  1. 2001 eldorado, just got the " low refrigerant / a/c compressor off " message! I haven't been using the a/c because a noise in the blower motor when on High. But I wanna try and charge it to see what happens? Where do I start!
  2. Could be! Gonna clear the codes to see what happens, if it comes back i will have to try the battery disconnect! Just got the car back,my daughter had to borrow it over night. So now I'm gonna first try a lighter from a different car an if it still blows the fuse I'm gonna take the front ashtray n lighter assembly out to try an trace wires to see if maybe there's a short somewhere. If I can't find it then I'm gonna take the back lighter apart also, will see!!
  3. Actually have tried just the charger with the hood up an checked the fuse, it was OK. Then I'd go an plug the phone in and it wouldn't register a charge! So went back under the hood n the fuse would be blown. I'm gonna have to remove the ashtray door an try to pull out all the ashtray and lighter socket to see if I can trace it down if I wanna use it bad enough I guess. Hey thanks for all the response, I will definatley be talking with ya more.
  4. Yes I did check both front and back sockets, nothing in neither one. An the fuse doesn't blow as soon as I put it in the fuse box. But as soon as I push the lighter in, either front or back one then the fuse goes! They've been that way since I've had the car. I finally just gave up on trying to use them. But it would be nice to figure it out, I would love to be able to at least charge my phone when I'm out driving.
  5. Ok good! Yeah I'm gonna check the PCM connection again first an if I can't come across anything I'll try disconnecting the battery! Then see what happens. Thanks. Hey also while I have someone that knows these Caddys, any ideas on both my cig lighters blowing out as soon as I try one. I've replaced fuses twice but can't seem to find the problem! I've checked to make sure there were no coins fallin in them that would cause a short. Its not that big of a deal but I would like to be able to charge my phone with either of them. Just thought I would ask.
  6. Hope I'm answering you back OldCarTech, Sounds Good, I'm gonna check the PCM connects again a little later! But about disconnecting both battery terminals, I've read that can cause some other issues besides the minor radio having to be reprogrammed. Any truth to the computer having to relearn certain stuff?
  7. Not sure why I'm having so much trouble with these posts!! I'm confused as to if I'm answering people back or not, I feel like I'm making it harder then it is. I'm really not an idiot! Promise, Ha Ha!
  8. Hey I'm not sure if I responded back to you! It looked like I just answered my own post myself. I'm still new to all this forum stuff Sorry!! Did you see my respons?
  9. Hey rockfangd, I'm not sure if I sent a post back to your response to my question or if I actually answered my own question!! Sorry I'm new to all this forum stuff but I really like this site. An thanks for the Welcome, I appreciate it. Hopefully I'll get the hang of it.

  10. Hey I'm not sure if I responded back to you! It looked like I just answered my own post myself. I'm still new to all this forum stuff Sorry!! Did you see my respons?
  11. OldCadTech, great response! I did remove the intake filter box to get to the radiator drain plug but I don't think I disturbed anything. Also if I had a bad PCM wouldn't it light up some kind of message? The only reason I found that code was because I was checking DIC for blower motor noise. The car has been running n driving fine! Very low mileage, 43,460
  12. rockfangd, the reason I was checking codes is a noisy blower motor sound coming from driver side dash when I put the fan on high! An I'm nervous about disconnecting the battery cause I've red it can through some things outta wack.
