  1. Thanks! I am almost certain it is abs pump. It is definitely coming from drivers side and when I put my hand on the top of pump I can feel it when it clicks. Gonna try that now. On a potentially unrelated issue was noticing last night the dash was showing what gear it was in. Thought that was odd since key was off and out. After pulling the maxifuse for brakes noticed it was not showing now unless key was on. Hmm...
  2. I have a 1997 cadillac deville. Not sure if base or not. Only badge is deville. recently battery died on car after sitting for a couple days. Replaced with a new battery and figured problem solved. Next morning battery is flat again. Jump start car and drive around with no issue. Park it and in morning battery dead again. Jump start car and drive for a but but this time disconnect ground to make sure battery is holding charge. After couple hour voltage same with battery disconnected. But as soon as I connect the ground i notice a light clicking sound from the abs pump again. Key is off and in my pocket so not sure why abs pump is running. So start it up run for a few minutes pump brakes just in case and turn off car and notice clicking still happening with car off. After about an hour later I check voltage with multimeter can see voltage is 8.7 and slowly counting down with car off and no lights or accessories on. Disconnect ground and now multimeter reads 12.1. So something is definitely pulling allot of power. Connect battery and try to start it up and not enough juice to start, almost starts before starter starts to click from lack of power. So for now have negative disconnected and on battery charger overnight. So tried to find anything online for a starting point and best I can find is maybe a stuck relay. What I cannot find is where it is. Have back seat off and am sure it is there but not sure which of the 10 or so there it maybe. Rather not spend a ton on fuses if they are ok or maybe not even the issue. I was hoping to take the car for a short road trip this 4th but don't want to have to worry about jumping car each morning or disconnecting battery each time i turn it off. I wouldn't mind just disconnecting abs if I thought might stop killing battery. Not a stranger to vehicles without ABS so that doesn't scare me. But don't want to create another potential problem either if it involves cutting or removing something. Of course I want to fix it correctly but for now need to resolve it holding the charge so can hopefully take it this weekend. Any advice is greatly appreciated. I'm not a mechanic by any means but far from clueless so don't mind the work.
  3. Thanks. Granted I can't say for sure it's not the wheel hub but I don't have any other codes or historical codes for anything related to braking system so don't think could be the hubs. Ground could be the culprit. Or at least i am hoping. I should also add ABS pump comes on within 1 minute of starting up car in morning while still in park. Now that I got my oldest son's truck out the garage I can start digging into the Caddy. One of these days I will have enough time to take care of my own vehicle lol.
  4. Hello and thank you in advance for any help anyone can offer. I recently bought a 1997 Cadillac DeVille. It is a little bit of a fixer upper but definitely a great for car for my son once he is able to get his license. At first i had no issues with brakes but last weekend traction control and ABS light came on after hearing ABS pump cycle. Previously I noticed sometimes when driving if I hit a dip brake light would come on but go away usually few seconds later. Brakes never felt off and car stopped fine.. When i pulled the codes it came back with C1255. I was hoping that maybe a brake flush would help since fluid was pretty dark. To my horror the brake fluid was a dark green, never seen that in a car before that wasn't sitting in a field for years, and had some air in the lines that I was able to bleed out. Fluid now is pretty clear but when I start car in the morning I still hear the ABS pump turn on and off several times and then the traction control light and ABS light come on still. Not sure if not is normal but when ABS pump comes on it is pretty loud. When i first purchased car I never heard ABS pump come on and never had any codes related to brake system. From my research the EBCM need to be reflowed with solder but I am curious if maybe the pump itself is bad. Any information is appreciated and hopefully someone can point me in a good direction.
