  1. SVC STABILITY SYST

    ...here's on for Texas Jim. ...just had the rear shocks and the front struts replaced on my '98 Deville. Was still hearing some clunking over potholes and rough spots, so I went back to the front end shop. Turns out the tie rod ends were loose. Okay...took care of that. No big deal. ...but the system is throwing a SVC SYSPENSION SYSTM at me...and doggoned if I know what to look at next. ...it also lights the Anti-lock Braking and Steering icons on the dash display. ...got me puzzled...but I'd sure like to correct whatever it is. ...thanks. Still enjoy driving this fine old machine...less than 200,00o on it, has everything I could ask for in a fine automobile and still looks good.
  2. Hello Caddy Enthusiats!!!! I would like to keep things short and simple. My question today is what part(s) should be replaced based on the DTC codes that are pulled from my car? I have a 95 DeVille Concours. The codes are as follows: P035 P036 P039 P040 S010 S011 S012 S015 S016 S017 S021 S022 S025 S027 S030 S031 S035 S037 S044 S051 S060 S061 Any input would be greatly appreciated and I would like to thank everybody in advance for their suggestions. Thanx!!!
  3. SUSPENSION...

    There's an inch-and-a-half-thick Owners' Manual that came with my 98 DeVille d'Elegance...and here are three words that DO NOT APPEAR anywhere in that book: suspension, shocks, struts. It doesn't even tell me whether I have electronic shocks or not. I know the ride isn't what it ought to be -- probably still running OE stuff, since this car was bought from a prior owner -- but I need to know what I'm dealing with. So please tell me what suspension this car has. Thanks very much.
  4. Hello, I used to be rmink on here but it couldn't retrieve my profile for some reason.. Anyway, I have a leak (again) in my rear air hose, and when I crawled under the car I saw a bar that was broke at the bolts (LftDrvr) This has 2 long bars running across each side to the middle close to under the rear frame/airline area. One has separated/broke from the bolts. It LOOKS? easy enough for me to fix myself with enough lockerloose, but I have no idea what it is or what all entails to fix it. Anyone see these bars and feel I can buy one reasonably and put it on on a Saturday afternoon? I do all my own work, (mostly) but there is a very cheap shop run by a Mexican close, feel I should just let him do the work? My job is real slooow right now, I need the $$ myself!! Would a Junkyard bar be good enough?? Thank You!
  5. I recently replaced all four shocks/struts with new ones from Arnott. The message "Service Ride Control" still comes up every time I start my car and I know the reason could be non-working solenoids, sensors etc. But as I replaced the shocks and the old suspension system is no longer operational, I like to get rid of that annoying message. I searched the whole net for an answer. Could anyone help me? How can I bypass and permanently delete "Service Ride Control" on a Cadillac Seville STS 1994? Thanks a lot in advance! Best regards. Fred from Sweden
  6. 2005 Suspension question

    I have a base model 2005 Deville that I have recently acquired. The car is in great mechanical shape but I have questioned the suspension on it. When I first start the car I hear the suspension in the back doing its thing, but I have noticed that when there are people in the back or the trunk is full the car sags. Shouldn't the ride height remain the same no matter what? I guess I am comparing it to a Lincoln Town Car air suspension, are they the same or different? Any info is appreciated. Thank you.
  7. Needing advice and help. My 75 Eldorado rear leveling suspension isn't working. I don't know if it is a minor problem or if there are replacements parts or fixes for this. Any advice or help is appreciated.
  8. Right front clunk

    Hi all. I have had a clunk in the right front of my Deville for as long as I can remember. I think it had it when I bought the car. Anyway I have given up a few times trying to figure out the cause, and I am starting to pull my hair out because it sounds louder now but I just cant detect the exact problem. Here is what it does. If you hit a bump on the right side only it clunks I cannot feel it in the steering wheel. Drives straight and wheel is straight If you hit a bump(speed bump for example) where both front tires contact, nothing happens It is specific to the corner only. I have replaced inner and outer tie rods. (inner had play when I bought the car) I removed and rebushed the lower control arm last year when I repaired the strut rod portion. I replaced the balljoint when I had the control arm out I replaced the hub assembly (noisy but no play) I replaced the sway bar links And lastly I replaced the whole strut with a donor unit (basically to see if anything would change). Nothing has solved the noise I have jacked it up by the body and checked for play, also inspected the subframe bushings which look surprisingly good for the year and miles I jacked it up by the control arm and checked for play. Nothing. I have tried bouncing the front end, grabbing the wheel and checking while on the ground. Nothing at all. I am down to thinking it can be sway bar bushings(I would think it would be noisy with both sides though) I inspected the swaybar and found no play or cracks Subframe bushings worn. I would not know how to find out if this is the problem. Replacement strut just as bad as old one. An expensive gamble for a new unit. I am baffled that as much noise that it makes that I cannot find the cause. I thought for sure that when I fixed the strut rod bushings last year that that would have cured it, but not with my luck. And another thing that has been driving me nuts. The clock is running faster than usual. It gained 9 minutes in a month. This is very common to these but I dont know why. Usually it will be 10 minutes fast after about 6 months but not lately. Maybe I will have to talk to the dealer on this one. Thanks all in advance for any insight
  9. Hello all. My 96 Deville throws the RS0038 code. for the rear ELC. I cannot find the description for the code at this time but I know it has something to do with the compressor. I have run into this cde many times before on other Cadillacs and usually the ELC fuse in the trunk pops and the compressor does not operate. But this one is not happening like that. here is what I have for info. Car rides fine No other codes present Have never gotten a service ride control message Air compressor works fine and exhausts fine rear suspension does not change when vehicle sits for extended period of time. Not quite sure why this code is occuring as suspension seems to be working properly. Only one time I had about 700 lbs in back seat and rear suspension rode low. definately lower than normal. I use the spokes of my rims as reference of ride height. Normal ride height I can see the holes in the spokes at the top of the rims at the wheelwell. Which is all the time. On the ride where it rode low the rear end all you could see was half of the center cap. Yes thats very low. but still rode great. and got decent mileage. I would appreciate any insight on this topic. I plan to purchase a spare compressor to rebuild and install someday. But at this time I am not too worried about the problem. the code has been coming up for awhile and the only reason why I know its there is because I run the codes once in awhile and it is the only code. Whatever is causing this code only seems to be affected by heavy load in the rear end. other than that it rides perfectly normal. thanks all
  10. Hi. Shop says I need rear shocks on my 1996 Deville; they're leaking. I love the car. It is showroom. But they say it will cost me $3,400 (in NY). On-line repair estimators verify this amount. Anyone here know any alternatives? I can't spend that kind of money on just a couple of shocks. Is it time to junk my Cadillac? Thanks for your feedback. (
