    Good bye Betty White!

    Too bad that happy buyer wasn't me. Lol. I have bought my fair share. Good to see them keep going. Happy Motoring
  3. Excellent. I assume the column did not need to be dropped?
  4. Very likely the wires that run from the ignition down the column have broken. Try moving the tilt column to a different position and see if it works. The wires run down under the dash above the accelerator. I just find out the resistance of the pellet and install a pellet resistor inline under the dash, therefore bypassing the Vats system
  5. I would not do anything until you get the display working. I am pretty sure it defaults when there is a problem. And if it does I am not sure what the temp would be. Have you tried manually holding the blend door one way or the other to see if it changes? Update 1/9 Excellent. You are getting somewhere. Here is what I suggest you do now. Disconnect the battery for 1 minute reconnect battery Turn ignition to ON position but do not start it. Do not touch anything for 1 full minute. This will allow the actuators to run their full cycle and calibrate them. Once that is done see what happens.

  7. If both are equally hot then I doubt it is a flow issue. If the actuator is working properly I would suggest checking the blend door itself. Maybe the door that the actuator controls is not moving.
  8. nice. I have mine undercoated by a local company. It is not paint but rather a thick oil like coating that is sprayed into all of the panels. Hoping to preserve my 97 for a few extra years by having that done yearly. May have to drop the column a little bit as the saginaw column is pretty close
  9. I usually do not recommend forced air in the coolant hoses. I would attempt to back flush from each side So to be sure here. When coolant is hot. What does each pipe from the heatercore feel like? They should be equally hot. Core is plugged if one side is very hot and other is luke warm. To flush the core I would unhook both sides and flush from the luke warm side. That should back flush it. Once it flows you can flush it both ways. If the core is equally hot on both sides it would be a blend door problem.
  10. Nice looking Deville. Big difference between 93 and 94. 94 was a completely different change in platform everywhere. Anyway I am pretty sure that bezel pops out. I assume you are referring to the wood (or faux wood) bezel surround. It has flat spring clips around it that snaps it into the main dash. Can someone confirm this. It has been awhile since I have touched a square body Deville. Too bad if you drive that Caddy in the winter here in lovely NY
  11. It will cause issues. Likely in limp mode at best. Which unit is the one you want to remove from the dash? The display unit?
  12. Maybe this is a cell phone. I am not sure if that is possible or how that works but it is kind of confusing. It could be formed like you are thinking. Just a pressed fit into the dash

    2004 Deville hard to start?

    All I can say is LMAO. I feel your pain. Its her car and she knows whats wrong with it but wants you to fix it. You tell her what you think and she probably does not like that. I deal with that all the time.
  14. Merry Christmas to all.

    Hope it is as white as mine.

    We don't always get snow in NY for Christmas anymore.
