  1. I have a 2004 DTS rhat one of the running lights are out, when I pulled up daytime bulbs for the car it shows a 9005 bulb. I had already purchased new low and high beam bulbs. The low beam bulbs are also a 9005 Are rhere rhree bulbs in there low high,hight and daytime? or do the daytimerun off the low or hight beams? I tried looking from the outside and could not tell. ( the lens are cloudy) I also hbought a 3m lens refinishing kit to take care of that issue.
  2. They were only 39 & 40 I readjusted the pressure and that was not it. I did the on-board and it was showing a bunch of 1000 type codes. did not have a pen and paper to write them down. will pull them again and post them. Took it out on the highway and it runs fine and I did take it over 100 with no issues
  3. Went out today for a drive. Had a message come on dash saying limited to 90 mph, there was a second message showing high tire pressure high on two of the tires. I'm guessing that since it finally warmed up here the tire pressure increased. Is this something that Cadillac does? or is there another issue I should worry about. It got dark out so I have not readjusted the pressure in the tires yet.
  4. Just an update, got the car back from the shop, the mechanic said that the front driver wheel bearing was starting to freeze up that he could barley turn it. Replaced both fronts have driven it with no issues. With new Struts and Shocks it's become a pleasure to drive again. I appreciate everyone's responses
  5. By the time I got the radio turned down it had stopped. It could of been the ABS? not sure. I'm going to be taking 1K+ trip in a couple of weeks and had it going in for Struts and shocks already. With a 116,000 on it I called the mechanic and told them to do the front wheel bearing also. Better to have it done here than being stuck at the mercy of someone in the middle of nowhere. I will update after it gets out of the shop. Thanks
  6. The check Air bag message did come on today, not figuring that has anything to with it but I could be wrong.
  7. No codes, I pulled the on board codes and they were clear,I meant to include that in the post. I was thinking possibility being a wheel bearing? It felt like it was the drivers side.
  8. I was driving today though a neighborhood only doing about 30 mph with my foot off the gas when it felt like the brake was applied and I heard a noise, by the time I turned down the radio it was gone. and the car was rolling fine. It happened again a few minutes later. When it happens it only last about 20-30 seconds. I parked the car in the driveway and don't want to do any damage by driving more. Looking for any insight to what it might be.
  9. I have a 2004 Deville DTS, Getting older and tougher to see in the Dark. When backing up I can barley tell that the reverse lights are even on. I just bought the car within the last year and don't know how old they are. I know they do dim over time. I was reading and saw there are LED reverse bulbs that supposedly plug right in and are brighter. Has anyone tried them? Is there a noticeable difference between the normal bulbs? Any suggestions would be welcome.
  10. I have a 2004 DTS drivers window stopped working half way down. From reading I figured the regulator went bad. Ordered a new one, strange thing is that you cant get the motor with the drivers side window all the rest you can regulator and motor, no one could tell me why. Replace the regulator with original motor and it does not work. There is a door module that I can hear clicking mounted on the door. How can you Check the Motor?Any suggestions?

  12. Need to replace Pads and rotors as brake light came on, car is new to me and mechanic doing safety inspection said I would need them soon (fronts). I am guessing that since the light came on there is a sensor on them? I have been looking online at pads and rotors(also full kits) and none come with or show sensor wires. don't want to find out after its apart. Also I see a lot of slotted rotors out there, I don't do a lot of stop & go or hard driving, I am assuming the slots are for heat dissipation? and figured the more surface area the better. Thoughts?
  13. I have 2004 DTS 109k on it, Info display shows 38% life left on trans fluid. My mechanic says if it an't broke don't fix when it comes to a transmission. Any thoughts?
  14. New to the forum just got a 2004 Deville, on the doors it looks like a plastic edging to prevent nicks, the problem is that dirt or mildew got under the adhesive and looks horrible. I am thinking that a heat gun would loosen it up to remove, has anyone had this issue? also can you get replacement strips?
