  1. I got it off ebay a few years back. E&G Grille cost me about $200.

  2. That's my case. My remote is totally d.e.a.d. Dead. It does nothing. I put a brand new battery in it and tested it on the remote tester at a parts store nearby, and it wasn't sending a signal at all...which is why I don't have the option of programming a new one myself. Pete, I'll look into finding a locksmith around here and see if they can do it. I'm not 100% sure which type of key mine is...all I know is it has a black pellet with a silver tab in it, and if I put the wrong key in (done that more than once) I get the "passkey II error, car will not start" message on the DIC. The black p
  3. No no no just tell them you want them to copy the keys dont attempt to program them. You program the keys yourself at home. Its a pretty simple procedure that involves inserting the original key in the ignition turning it to the ON position then turning it back off and within 10 secs or so put the copied key in and turn it to the ON position or something like that. Im not 100% sure on the exact procedure but ive done it multiple times with my STS. Im sure the proper procedure for programming keys is on this forum somewhere. You can find blank PK3 keys on ebay for cheap so dont get suckered int
  4. Its a guy selling replacement rubber pads for our cars on ebay. Just type in "Replacement Remote Rubber Pad". Should be about $11-$15.
  5. Those look sweet and they might look good with my gold pinstriping. I'll have to give it some thought. You may have just cost me a bundle! Regards, Warren Thanks Warren! Yes they look really nice on Green and I bet your gold pinstripe would set them off! After buying mines, I found a really good website selling the set brand new for around $400 with free shipping. PM me if interested.
  6. Vogue Wide Trac CBR VIII Gold Stripes. Makes the Caddy float like a dream!!
  7. Just wanted to show off my new Vogue Gold Stripes! I saw a bottle of Vogue Tyre Cleaner at my local dealership for $30 and thought no way!! Since I wasnt willing to pay that much for some tire cleaner, Ive been using Mothers Tire and Rubber cleaner with fantastic results.
  8. Just a update, Vogue Rep told me not to use any product that contained bleach on their tires. He said its safe to use pretty much any tire cleaner on them but stay away from any products with bleach. He wasnt trying to sell me their expensive Vogue Tyre cleaner either, he just said products with bleach will cause the tires to crack. I dont have to worry about cleaning mines too much considering I opted for Gold Stripes.
  9. Well the exhaust of choice for most STS owners is the Corsa exhaust system. Its not cheap but it sounds great. Ive seen people put flowmasters, cherry bombs, and even glass packs on Caddy's so it really all about how you want it to sound.
  10. 98+ are OBD II and require a Tech II scanner. 97 and earlier ( OBD I) can be programed without the scanner. If you read the instructions in the link it will tell you 98+ vehicles need a Tech II scanner to program key fobs.
  11. Thats instructions on how to program a key. I think he wants info on how to program a Key Fob aka remote. No other way but to use a expensive TechII scanner for OBDII vechicles.
  12. Glad you got it running ok. After doing a little more research I found that using a passive LOC (like the one you have) will cause significant signal loss. Using a powered LOC will allow you to regain alot of that signal and boost your sound output!
  13. Yeah its not gonna be nearly as loud as an aftermarket setup. PAC makes some really good LOC's and have gain controls built in so you can boost the signal. Everybody I know that has put subwoofers in these cars, tapped into the subwoofer line for the LOC. I guess the LOC you have gets power from the speaker wire so it doesnt need a power wire. Maybe thats the main cause of your low output. Look on Ebay for a PAC LOC and give that a try. Have you adjusted your gain and bass control on your amp? My system sounds pretty good and I only have one JL 12 in my trunk. Doesnt sound as good as a afterma
  14. Have you checked for trouble codes? Sounds like a blend door issue.
  15. Yep unless you have a TechII scanner you have to take it to the dealer to have them program it.
  16. You have the same year make Caddy as me. I have done exactly what your trying to do and its really simple. The best thing to do is to take out your factory sub, and tap into the factory subwoofer line with your line out converter. Your factory sub gets a low pass signal so your new subs will sound like subs and not a 6x9. If you dont want to take out the factory sub, you can just leave it in, but most people think it sounds better when you take it out. If you decide to take out your factory sub, the hole acts as a port and lets you hear more bass inside the cabin. As for your remote wire, run
  17. 00-02 Eldorado ETC Fun and Daily Driver 5K-10K, 2003 STS Daily Driver 10K-15K, 2005 CTS-V Fun Car 15K.
  18. No I dont think it does. Its more for the aluminuim N* engines. The 4.9 is a very rugged motor and will last you a very long time, it just lacks the punch of the N*.
  19. Beautiful car!!! Coolant tabs are not needed. Previous owner may have heard from a newer N* Caddy owner that coolant tabs are good for the system. Ditch the coolant tabs on your next coolant change and enjoy that sharp car!!
  20. Well you can buy the same kit to check for exhaust gases in your coolant system from NAPA for $50. This test will confirm wheter or not your headgaskets have failed. The dealer is going to be the most expensive place to get your Caddy repaired, but other shops can do it, just make sure they timesert it or use studs when they repair it. Unfortunately it does sound like your headgaskets have failed. Alot of times when the headgaskets go, the radiator side tanks bust due to the increased pressure from the blown headgaskets. Stay away from HEAL-A-SEAL or any other magic potion in a bottle for it w
  21. So could I remove these parts from a old Eldorado at my local junkyard and install them on my STS? Is there any modificaions that need to be made?
  22. Yeah optima batteries are top of the line and can handle heavy electrical demands very well.
  23. Yeah I hate parking my car outside when im over my girlfriends place. At home my Caddy is garaged but at my girls apartment, they share a large parking lot and people come and go all day and night. A couple of months ago I came out and noticed some asshole left some scuff marks on my rear quarter panel . Luckily I was able to buff out the marks but I pray everytime I leave my baby outside when im over there.
  24. Leave it up to GM to put stickers on a $50K car lol!
