  3. Yesterday
  4. Hi Logan Thanks for the time and effort in getting an image for me. ! Hope this is not too hard to get to be able to replace PSP switch
  5. Still sounds like the battery is not charged, or is defective. I would swap in a known good battery. Also I would try taking both the battery cables off and re-attaching them. The multiple stacked battery cables can be tricky to get a proper connection.
  6. Last week
  7. I bought a 94 Deville for my daughter 3 days ago. 1 owner, car in great shape for it's age and got it at a bargain. The car had been driven very little in the past year - owner in bad health. Owner had put a new battery in the car 6 months ago and it was dead. I jumped the car and it cranked fine. Checked all fluid levels - fine. Drove the car around town. I would smell a faint "hot smell" at times but the car never overheated. I thought it might be from sitting so long. Going down the road yesterday and the car quits as I'm turning into McDonalds. Won't crank back. Starter makes 1 loud click and that's all. Checked battery and it is good. Any suggestions as to where to start? Someone has already told me that it's acting like the motor is seized up - but I have no idea.
  8. Hi and thanks for the reply Is this for a 4.9 L 1993 Deville and is that next to the exhaust pipe, image kinda small so was not sure ? Thanks
  9. If having a fuel pressure regulator. If it has a vacuum hose, while at idle is take the hose off and see if any fuel comes out and regulator is leaking would need to be replaced Using a fuel pressure gauge connected to the test port of fuel rail see what the fuel pressure is with key on, engine off, should read at least 35 PSI Turn key off and see via that gauge if pressure holds or quickly bleeds down showing leak somewhere including fuel injector(s) Otherwise, need a full OBD-II scanner and see if the problem happens when the engine is in open or closed loop. If closed then look for how the fuel trims look, is MAP and MAF reporting correctly, etc
  10. HI All ON the subject of the Power Steering Pressure Switch Having moved to an area where the summer is very hot my 1993 Deville 60 special 4.9L engine On random basis on startup the idle would go nuts and sometimes engine dies No DTCs trip and OBD-I shows all looks good as to fuel trims, MAP, timing etc. So I assumed it was the ISC and replaced it, though this issue then seemed better over some cold starts the problem still exists but happened less. I assumed then it was a thermal issue as the weather went from 100 deg days to low 80s. Used 2 different ECMs, Memcals and calibrations and both have the same issue Car has over 210,000 miles on it, but more about car's age that some sensors are original and get weaker. So I started researching this, and it hit me a weak PSP can cause idle issues It is even labeled as part replacement as : 1993 Cadillac DeVille Idle Speed Control Power Steering Pressure Switch - 10218778 AC Delco - $24.18 I understand testing the PSP with an Ohm meter with steering wheel flat straight will show open and when wheels are locked hard either direction then circuit should then be closed Question is having PSP not fully going faulty but having degraded cause the idle issue ? I did a simple test where on cold start kept the wheels dead straight and idle was perfect around 650 RPMs for good 5 minutes. The began turning steering wheel back & forth (half to full wheel to wheel) and sure enough idle RPMS change. Put the wheels straight, idle fine and again back/forth on steering wheel and RPMS go up and down So where physically exactly is it for 1993 as from engine bay I could not find it ? Is this on the rack and only can be seen/replaced jacking front end up and getting under there and if so, can PSP be replaced without having to take other things out ? I assume being down there then taking PSP off that will lose most of the power steering fluid and when PSP is installed have to add fluid and then bleed the system ?
  11. Back home and recd. the reman BCM. Swapped the chip. Plugged into car............ NO fuel or climate controls still! Gotta run the flo chart from serv. manual. \Any ideas?

  13. Just thought I would post an update to this. I love the mufflers. They are perfect for the application. In every way actually. Thank you to the member that recommended them. I am very impressed and they were completely worth the install.

It didn’t happen. When Roy bought it, the odometer had rolled past the 10k mark, just barely, and he was quite upset. But he bought it anyway.
