Service Engine Now! -- what do I do


Recommended Posts

1987 Seville HT4100 173,000 miles on it and does not use a drop of oil. The AC stopped coming out of the dash vents (out defroster and floor though) so I thought it was the air mix door (VACUUM lines to the firewall ok) and I performed the following from my AllData Program

1. Remove glove box module.

2. Set temperature on Climate Control Panel (CCP) for32 °C (90 °F). Allow 1 to 2 minutes for programmer

arm to travel to maximum heat position.

3. Snap threaded rod from plastic retainer on programmer output arm.

4. Check air mix valve for free travel. Push valve to maximum A/C position, and check for binding.

5. Pre-load air mix valve in maximum heat position by pulling the threaded rod to ensure the valve is sealing.

Programmer output arm should be in maximum heat position.

6. Snap threaded rod into plastic retainer on programmer arm. Avoid moving programmer arm or

air mix valve.

7. Set temperature on CCP for l6°C (60 °F). Verify the programmer arm and air mix valve travel to the

max A/C position.

It worked fine so I "manually" made sure the door was ok......then the air mix door link(age) slipped out of the door lever. I had to remove 3 screws from the BCM shield because the lever is behind that plastic shield....Well I thought I had to un-plug the 3 BCM connectors and after I plugged them back in the car ran rough and I got a Service Engine Now 02? I had been getting a service engine soon 03 occasionally. I cannot find a "code 2" or even a "code 3" (from Service E Soon)

Any thoughts? I cannot afford NOW to take it to a Caddy dealer - My kingdom for a 283 or 327 like I used to work on as a teen!

What E codes and F codes are showing on the FDP? '87 Seville.....RWD, right?

"I had been getting a service engine soon 03 occasionally. I cannot find a "code 2" or even a "code 3" (from Service E Soon)"

What R these #s and how are you getting them/where are you seeing them?

E codes are from the ECM(electronic control module) and F codes are from the BCM(body computer module). You should be getting some E codes because of the Service Now telltale being illuminated.

I suggest you buy a Cadillac Factory Service Manual for your '87 Seville. There are more than 15 for sale on eBay and they are cheap. Best tool you can have to work on your Cadillac. Any other 'service' or manual is just a waste of money. The FSM is THE book to have.

Ohhh. My list shows 108 E codes. I also have 34 S codes, 13 A codes, 36 R codes 27 T codes, 11 I codes, and 36 B codes. My OBD II list is far longer than I could get out of my 1997 FSM too because most of the codes are self-explanatory and the job doesn't require that you get involved with the FSM, like P1609-15, Loss of XXX serial data (make sure that module XXX is OK and its connector is clean and tight, trace the purple wire between the IPM and module XXX), etc. If the FSM lists 38 E codes, then it has 38 detailed diagnostics and repair instructions to go with them, in addition to the rest of the stuff on engine, electrical, sensors, and emissions repairs.

If the code is in the FSM, then it might be a good idea to make the FSM material available to WilsonWilson somehow. Otherwise, just knowing what the code means is likely enough.

He hasn't been back, so I assume his trouble is not that much of a problem"

All 1987 Seville's are FWD

I bought an Eldorado/Seville service manual about 3 years ago on ebay for $5.00 + 3-4 to send it to me.....but there are certain things even a manual doesn't cover but those that work on them on a daily basis through trial and error know what to do.

I haven't been back because I forgot where I put this darn link

BO00 The NO OUTPUTS display will not display "HI" nor "LO" as this is a resting spot where no

outputs will be cycled.

BO01 The CRUISE CONTROL VENT SOLENOID display is "HI" when the vent solenoid is on

(energized). The cruise ON/OFF switch must be on and the engine off for the output to cycle.

BO02 The CRUISE CONTROL VACUUM SOLENOID display is "HI" when the vacuum solenoid is

on (energized). The cruise ON/OFF switch must be on and the engine off for this output to

cycle.

BO03 The Retained Accessory Power (RAP) relays display is "LO" when the relays are on

(energized).

BO04 The courtesy relay display is "LO" when the relay is on (energized).

BO05 The twilight relay display is "LO" when the relays are on (energized) lights on.

BO06 The HI/LO beam relays display is "LO" when the relays are on (energized) hi beams on.

Your rough idle may be due to the E002 test result. This is likely a disconnected EGR solenoid connector.

I think that these may be outputs for specific diagnostic procedures initiated through procedures given in the FSM, not necessarily OBD I codes, unless the OBD I codes that I have are not applicable to the 1987 model year:

P000 (E000) Cruise Servo Apply Problem

P021 (E021) Shorted TPS Signal [VCC]

P022 (E022) Open TPS Signal [VCC]

P023 (E023) Electronic Spark Timing (EST) Signal problem [EGR]

P028 (E028) Open 3rd or 4th Gear Shift Or Shorted 2-3 Shift Solenoid [VCC]

P036 (E036) EGR Valve Pintle Position Out of Range

P048 (E048) Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system Problem

P090 (E090) VCC/TCC Brake Switch/Park/neutral switch Input Circuit Problem

P099 (E099) Cruise Control Servo Applied, Not in Cruise

etc. (see earlier list posted in this thread). I don't have anything from E001 through E011, possibly to avoid confusion with testing output codes. To run the OBD codes, look in the FSM under "Instrument Panel Cluster" and find "Vehicle Diagnostic System" (these are the headings in my 1997 FSM). This paragraph is in my FSM, page 8C1-19, and reads:

VEHICLE DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM

Displaying IPC Diagnostic Trouble Codes:

  1. Ignition switch ON>
  2. Simultaneously press the following buttions until all VF display segments (IPC and CCP) are illuminated: (A) Digital IPC, the climate control center (CCC) OFF and warmer (RED) buttons, or (
    B)
    Analog IPC, the climate control panel (CCP) OFF and PASS warmer (up arrow) buttons.
  3. After the segment display test, the driver message center displays all set DTC (current and history) in the following order: PCM, IPC, ACM, SDM, TCS, PZM, IRC, RFA, CCP, MSM, MMM and PHN (RSS, CCP, MSM, MMM and PHN DTC appear only on vehicles equipped with these options).
  4. To bypass the DTC display press the FAN DOWN button.

This is followed by instructions on how to obtain some diagnostic parameters, program the RFA (key fob), etc. through the car's computer.

Your FSM and procedures will differ. My car and FSM are for the 1997 model year, so the manual style will be different and the process for reading the codes may be different. One thing that seems consistent over many model years is that the OBD code display is initiated by simultaneously holding the OFF and PASSENGER WARMER buttons simultaneously for several seconds, until all the dash lights come on (this is the dash light test). You exit the diagnostic mode by pressing the INFO RESET button on my car, or you can turn the key off.

Someone with an 1987 FSM or experience with the OBD readout from the 1987 model year will be able to give you something more specific.
