  1. Heyo everyone, Im 18 and going to college. I have grown up in a life sheltered from nice things, so when I got my first job at 16 I made sure to save to buy nice things. And viola I found a 92 cadillac deville touring. Beautiful car. Honestly a dream car type of feeling. Bought it from a local owner who sold it “for a friend.” So before I talk about what’s wrong with the car and everything, I gotta say the actual circumstances is more screwed than the car, so that’s honestly the advice I’m asking for. I’m super new to this realm of conversation. So I bought it from this guy for $3,200 a few days ago. Bit pricey but mileage was low and he held it for me for a few days while I got my bank situated. and he said it just needed an oil change. I took it for a test drive and it sounded like a tick, but again he said it has just been sitting there and needs fresh gas and oil, as well as filters and whatnot. Tuneup stuff shouldn’t be too bad. Well first problem is he didn’t give me a door key, and I ended up triggering an alarm every time I opened the door until i went to a locksmith the day after. Let it slide cause I’m chill Then yesterday took it to the shop for oil change to see if the ticking would stop. They gave me a service report saying I need two distributor caps and a rotor, all new spark plugs and wire set, air filter, maybe a suspension joint or something. Ok and then they said the tires were cracking, and they could be a safety hazard. then they said the ticking may be a lifter problem. That’s not cool. I’m not good with cars but I’m good at research and a lifter job is not a joke! $2k professional job and if I did it myself i would have to do it correctly, which I’m hearing is not as easy as grandmas pie. And a set of tires is notoriously $600, and that’s not including the alignment I might need to get. i conclude I’m completely jipped with this deal. I ask the guy who sold it to me to talk to his friend to see if he’ll help me cause I’m now in a rock and a hard place as a young person. had my job close down around Christmas too so I don’t have income. I just asked for about one thousand to compensate for the broke crap in the car. He basically said he gave the money to his friend but he’ll see what he can do. I know a friend of his and this friend’s social media was filled with them buying crap and throwing a party tonight? Basically indicates that this may just be a big ole fashioned scam Im so sorry for the length bare with me. Almost done. I basically go on Monday to get the tires done for safety reasons. The thing is registered and whatnot. My big dilemma is: what the hell do I do? I have 2.7k left in the bank for now until I get a job again. Is this worth it if you were in my position? Do I retry for another car and try to sell the one I own or do I suck it up and invest in the caddy? The past few days tell me nothing about how it may do in the future, but all I know is I probably got taken advantage of again im new to Cadillacs and cars in general. I really need some help in weighing pros and cons of spending so much on the car. It’s a lot of money for me, and the economy my age group is entering is so ruthless, so I just don’t know where to begin. Thank you everyone who took the time to read.
  2. Hello All, I am having difficulty getting a new boot for my inner tie rod. The dealership only sells the whole rack and does not sell the boot individually. I've even called all local auto car part stores and mechanics, and they don't seem to sell the boot itself or with the new tie rod. Does anyone know a way to fix a torn boot? Or If there is another boot I can order from another car that is Capatible with my STS Cadillac 2009. I noticed the 2009 CTS model sells a Tie Rod Boot - GM (19177439) set. Not sure if that would fit. thanks for the help!
  3. I changed my transmission on my 2008 cts .now the car won`t start cranks over with occasional attempt to start
  4. Hey everyone, I have a 1980 Coupe deville d’elegance. My sunroof stopped working the other day and it’s about 1/4 way open and won’t budge. It doesn’t sound like it’s a fuse issue with the motor because you can hear it wanting to work. When I hit the switch the motor sounds like it wants to do something but it just does not want to go.. does anyone have any experience with this problem at all? And if you could please provide me with any advice or trouble shooting ideas that would be awesome. Do I have to take the headliner out in order to get the motor out if need be? Hope to hear back from someone soon. Thanks again for your time. cheers
  5. Hey all so i have a 05 Cadillac Escalade ESV and up until the past 3 weeks its been working great, i woke up one morning to goto work and the battery was 100% dead, figured its -30 around here and maybe thats the issue, so boosted it drove it to work came out on lunch and the DRL which are converted to LEDs were on, i thought thats pretty odd, so after work drove home its like 5:30ish so was dark out here, and turned the truck off and the interior lights stayed on, so i tried all switches and could not get them off so started the truck then turned it off everything seemed good, so i go in the house eat dinner look out the window and the headlights are on, go out to the truck try manually turning them off and they wont shut off so disconnected the NEG- on the battery and said F it for the night but for the past 3 weeks i have been disconnecting the NEG and reconnecting it everywhere i go (pain in the ___) anyways thought it would leave it yesterday to see if maybe it randomly fixed itself but well im here cause thats not the case, at one point the headlights where going on and off and on and off all on there own, but during the day its just the DRL so i guess im trying to figure out what could be the issue and where i would start to getting this resolved once and for all, thanks all in advanced for your help
  6. I recorded this video to explain how I use the new forum software. I didn't get to the sidebars and some other interesting features. Please reply below and let me know if this was helpful, and what you would prefer I addressed in the next video. It will take youtube a few moments after I post this to get the higher res verisons prepared.
  7. Hello, I have a 1997 Deville, 84k miles, beautiful car. It ran great on the test drive, but after getting it home, and sitting overnight, it didn't want to start the next morning. After cranking for awhile, it eventually, and reluctantly started, and ran great after warmup. I did notice that the exhaust seemed VERY rich. I have since replaced the plugs, wires, added seafoam to the gas tank twice, and it has more power, and runs GREAT after starting, however it still doesn't want to start right away after sitting overnight, but will restart just fine once it's been running, or after the initial start. I wondered if, before putting lots of new parts in hoping to correct the starting problem, the coils could be at fault, or, maybe more likely could the ignition control module be bad? Or should I consider something else could be at fault? By the way, the service engine soon light does work, however is not illuminated....but before I did the tune up, it did come on momentarily (twice) before I did the tune up and added the seafoam. Any advice would be helpful, I love this car! Thank you!
  8. Hello, I Recently bought a Cadillac deville from a private party and everything was working fine (well except the gas indicator. it wld appear full all the time and out of nowhere the car shut down from running out of gas, but thats another issue for later though) So later on today, in about 4 hrs to be exact, i have to drive 5.2 hrs, so i went to fill up on gas, and as soon as im done pumping and start the car, i get the "Service stability sys" warning and my "ABS" "BRAKE" & "TRACTION CONTROL" lights come and stay on. So I parked and shut down the car, read the little booklet that came with it, turned the car back on since it told me to try that and the message was still there. So i looked online and found a forum that somewhat talked about my issue and it told me to look up the codes and so i did and here's what i got: - ABS : C1214 Current : C1248 Current - IPM : B0419 History : B0429 Current : B1004 History - IRC : U1064 History : U1016 History - PCM : P0463 History : P1617 History - RIM : C0658 History - SDM : B0041 Current If you know anything about this please let me know as soon as possible how to fix it or at least let me know if i should take this trip or not.
  9. Good morning caddy enthusiats. I bring to you all an issue I ran into 15 minutes ago on my way to work. Anyway, I go out to my 95 concours this morning and when I turn the key over to start it, it wont give anything, not a click, no turning over, nothing. The lights, buttons, antenna and dash display still function so I doubt it's a battery issue. This isn't the first time this has happened (it started mid last week) but I've always gotten it to start usually after about the 3rd time I turn the key over to start it. It would take about 5-6 seconds of me holding the key to get it to start but it did it. I'm not sure what to do at the moment. Just looking for some advice and insight plz. Thanx folks
  10. Hi um ive been having trouble with my beautiful black 96 cadillac eldorado.. one day after coming home from the gym. I was getting ready to leave again but my car immediately shut off after ignition.. this has happened before since ive had battery issues but I fixed that so it came as a surprise.. I cranked it once more and boom I heard a loud knock.. cranked it again and nothin.. the car wouldn't stay on.. I replaced the fuel filter checked the fuel pump psi even the ignition switch which a mechanic swore was the issue.. and wanted to charge me $500 with labor and parts for the ignition switch.. however I contacted my personal lock smith and he told me that was impossible the car wouldnt even turn on if it was the switch.. so now im here thinking about what it could be.. the "Car may not start" warning has always been on since I got the car.. it never gave me no problems.. ive had the car 5 years.. the emissions system warning however did start flashing a couple months prior and it would go away so I ignored it.. I came across another forum with a guy that owned an ETC he took his to the Dealer to replace the Nylon fuel rail with a steel fuel rail.. his car was up and running.. they told him to get a new regulator and an oil change bc fuel may have leaked into the oil.. any help?? To keep it short the car turns on for a few seconds and shuts off immediately after especially when pressing the pedal.. appreciate any hel thx
  11. Hello everyone, this is my first post here at the forum. I followed the very helpful key programming advice found on here: http://caddyinfo.ipbhost.com/index.php?showtopic=11531. Currently the only way to start my car is to place the FOB into the holder in the center console. Previously, I was able to just have it anywhere in the car in order to start the vehicle, but now it will only start if it's in that holder. I understand that little questions like these can be annoying, but some help would be much appreciated. Thanks for your time Edit: Sorry, I forgot to include the car's year / model. It's a Cadillac STS 2005
