  1. Battery is brand new - AC Delco. My head lights are after market HID's. I've had electrical issues before. Bad battery plus my headlights are wired to the positive charge under the hood. This actually happened right after I changed a blown fuse for my headlights. I think I'll drive her longer then check for codes again. Thanks Mike!
  2. Here are the current codes that popped up - same ones I've had ever since I bought this car!!! PCM P0741 PCM P1860 Another thing I noticed is that my fuel gauge is empty - I just filled up last night. :S
  3. I was on the hwy this morning and the worst thing that could've happened came about... My coolant temp jumped to HOT and a couple warnings came up - coolant over heating and engine idle. I was about to go nuts when a few seconds later it jumps right back to normal (temp) and all warnings turn off as well. I pull over and see no signs of over heating, no smoke, no excessive heat, no smell. I resumed driving to get to work and everything seemed back to normal. Was this just a sensor issue? Please God tell me it is... although it will probably be JimD.. lol Thanks team!
  4. Hey team! I am absolutely clueless when it comes to tire knowledge. I'm looking for good all season tires between $200 - $250 (Canadian) per tire. Just got a flat and figured I'd replace all four. Tire size is P235/55RR17 for the STS. Thanks for the help! BD - I guess it would be personal preference but I'd like to know what everyone is riding on...
  5. So I bought my AC Delco battery (79-6YR)... Thanks btw Jim. Paid $250 for it - geez. lol Seems to be an easy pop out pop in however just checking with the team if that is true. Anything I should be careful about when installing my new battery? Thanks!
  6. I was going to buy an OEM (AC Delco) battery to replace my old one, but someone had mentioned Optima or "gel" battery. I don't have any additional power requirements such as a sound system - just aftermarket fogs and headlights (both HID). Any suggestions? Thanks!!!
  7. I would love some advice on which ones to buy! Performance preferred of course... Thanks!
  8. I just did another test, and yes it does get a little louder turning right. It's very loud cruising at 60kmph going straight. How much does this generally cost to fix? How much longer can I be driving like this? Thanks guys!
  9. Noise gone on left turns and is with speed not acceleration or throttle. At idle I hear nothing... Thanks BBF!
  10. I have no idea what it is but the sound and vibration is coming from under my left foot. Almost seems like it's on the wheel, bearing or axle because the tone increases with speed, (not throttle). Sound seems to reduce when making left turns. (???) It's most heard when I'm doing about 50 - 70 km/hr. I'm thinking wheel alignment or bearing? I have no clue...
  11. Same problem here... Ever since the codes came up i've been trying to find a friendly mechanic in my area who'd be willing to do a side job... I'm not as rich as most Caddy drivers. (sigh)...living with the low MPG for now.
  12. "No, I don't want a new transmission, and I don't want my transmission rebuilt. I want the shop manual diagnostic tree run, and if needed I just want the TCC PWM solenoid replaced."

  13. So...does that mean it's going to be expensive? And could that be the reason why my engine light came on? Thanks for the help!
  14. Driving home from work on the hwy... A/C on travelling about 120 km/hr. Checked for DTC and the only current code was PCM P1860. Cleared the codes and shut her off and back on. Engine light gone... This morning I drive around the city, no engine light. Hit the HWY and everything seems fine, turned on my A/C, about five minutes later, the engine light pops back up. I should mention that I was starting to worry about an oil leak, nothing on my driveway, or where I leave my car parked, but my engine oil life is going down pretty fast and I changed my oil almost 2 months ago ( I com
  15. Everything I find is in the US. I'm trying to find accessories similar to those found on http://www.usspeed.com/ Particularly the custom floor mats and seat covers. I'm also looking for seat belt pads. I was a little peeved going to many car buff stores and finding accessories for every manufacturer other than Cadillac. grrrr!!!! Any direction would be greatly appreciated!
  16. The Crstal Car wash was about $8 Ultimate Quick Detailer - $13 (the Smoothing Clay comes with Quick Detailer, I dunno what the difference is ) Scratch X - $11 Smoothing Clay Kit - $25 NXT Tech Wax - $25 Total: $82 (approx) Of course you will get more than a few uses out of this bundle. Personally I don't think anybody will do a better job on your car than yourself - only thing a professional detailer will have over the average car owner is the high speed polish machines. Save a ton of $$$ and put in the labour - and it is labour, my arms were pumped after!!! lol I'll try to pos
  17. After watching the videos on Meguiar's I went out and bought the Smoothing Clay - I already had the other stuff. I have a Pearl 01 STS so I wasn't expecting too much difference. Deep Crystal Car Wash>Ultimate Quick Detailer>Scratch X>Smoothing Clay>NXT Tech Wax. For the wheels I used generic foam tire cleaner, Armourall's Extreme Wet Tire gel and a chrome polisher for the rims. 4 hours later - WOW... I could see the reflection of my house on my car, the garage, bricks etc showed up pretty well. ( this was at night btw) The best part was how smooth my car felt, like it j
  18. Oh by the way.. I have quite a few Cadillac logos, crests and signage all in vector - perfect for print shops.
  19. The one I saw was a peel off back, and it stuck on the window, but I will check, thx I know it can be done - but I'm sure at a much higher price than stickers. The quality of vinyl would affect price too - the thinner the better (1-2mm).
  20. Would vinyl be an option? Rather than the sticky gooey stuff? At least you can remove and reapply if necessary.
  21. I was wondering what history meant because ALL the codes says HISTORY. Does that mean I should clear and try again? Sorry guys, never done this before. No lights on cluster are on (airbag, engine etc...) The Service Stability SYS was the only error I got and it hasn't come u since that day.
