  1. Ok, try this then, Run a wire directly to the starter positive post and then touch it to the positive side of the battery and see if it works. Again this is something that I did on the SLS while I was having trouble with the starter . I put it the car together and it worked a few times till I got a new one......
  2. Just because your starter tested good, doesn't mean that it is good under load..... I replaced the one in the 95 SLS with a rock auto one and it works every time rather than when it wanted to.....
  3. Put in some head gasket sealer...... Should work as a stop gap till ya get a new ride. It worked for years on Pops 85 Deville long ago
  4. No problem, Like I said, the 95 SLS does this sometimes and seems to be fine at the moment.
  5. Happens intermittently on the 95 SLS...... Solution is to feel around where the e brake arm goes under the dash and just to the right of it you will feel the manual release. Keep your foot on the brake pad so it doesn't bite you on the way up....
  6. Just got through repairing both window regulators..... very simple fix and works perfectly Here are the links to the videos that I used... http://www.devillewindowregulators.com/video-repair-deville-window-regulators/ I didn't follow the repair with the putty though, the wire I used was plenty
  7. Just found all the info at youtube university....
  8. Aaahhhhhuuuuugggghh...... Just got home and my daughter tells me the drivers glass is now doing the same thing....... Checked it out and sure enough :-(
  9. Seems like the panel is held by some clips and a small screw at the pull..... need a stubby driver which is at work. Proceeded to clamp wood shims on either side of the glass and was able to yank it into the closed position where it is currently wedged. On a whim, I pushed the down switch and it will go down and back up but wont hold it in the up position. Any ideas?
  10. The first problem has shown itself on the 04 DTS........ Anyone removed the rear panels? If so, care to elaborate? Thanks......
  11. Installed a new heater core in the 95 and decided for the heck of it, to do a block test...... No anti freeze/ coolant, just water and car up to operating temperature..... Fluid turns green immediately,,,, My daughter drove the heck out of this car for three years and this being the first time that I have done a block test on it, I assume that it has not happened all of a sudden and in fact has been this way since I acquired it.... The car doesn't overheat but it does fluctuate between 220 and 210 regularly......... Am I to assume that this block test is only a suggestion that there may be a problem? Did I scare the owner of the 98 that I looked at needlessly by telling him it was on the way out when it could still get many more years of trouble free service? I am planning on selling the 95 to my renter with full disclosure, and since I can, I will monitor the car while he has it and see if the "failing HG" gets any worse or just remains the same....
  12. Glad I clicked on this thread as the DTS has the fobs AND my daughter has a bunch of extra weight on it. The keys have the elongated slot still and I actually commented to her how easy it is to turn the ignition switch.... obviously not good combination.
  13. The DTS Platinum s a really nice car... I wish I could run onto one that had real low mileage and wasn't priced thru the roof... What constitutes a platinum DTS? The one we got hast the faux convertible roof, gold grille and emblems.... thankfully, it wasn't priced through the roof and has fairly low miles. 107k
  14. First of all the car is beautiful, perfectly maintained and low miles but that's not the WOW! The "WOW!" is who we bought it from....... Get this, we bought it from one of the founding members of Hall of fame inductees The Ventures! Saw the gold records and the Hall of Fame trophy! Awesome nice guy who is really going to miss his Caddy but was happy it was going to a good home!
