There is plastic connectors on the air bag/ steering wheel cover that break very easy over time. it is easy to replace if you can find the part. just make sure when you replace it that you disconnect the battery.

You touched a nerve with me on this issue.

My 1992 Caprice had horn problems from day one. First it would honk at night any time the temperature dropped below 20. Then it wouldn't work during the day. I took it to the Chevy dealer and they fixed it for around $100. I am not a big horn honker so I never even used it other than to test it when I picked it up.

The next year before inspection I check it and it doesn't work. Back to the dealer and I tell them to fix it again and inspect it. They call me up and tell me that my steering coluum is loose but they can fix it for $750. I give them instructions to fix the horn and reject the inspection. They do. When I pick up the car I press them for details and the service manager says the technician said that the steering wheel moved. I had to agree since it still moved the same tiny amount it did when I picked it up at the dealers in 1992! So I scape off the rejection sticker and go to a local gas station and it passes just fine.

The horn does not work because it is a crappy design. The contacts inside the steering wheel cover cost Chevrolet about 2 cents each and they got what you paid for. In my humble opinion I think a recall should have been issued but what do I know?

Pay the dealer to fix it since the air bag is right there and you could kill yourself screwing with it, then, buy a Toyota next time. I did.

To replace your heater core on a 1993 caprice, you will need a screwdriver, a socket wrench, and a weather seal adhesive.

It is not possible to replace the trunk lock on a 1993 Caprice Classic while the trunk is closed. A person will have to remove the back seat, crawl into the trunk and open the lock manually before it can be replaced.

Why the defrost may not work in a 1993 Chevy Caprice Classic could be because the heating core is out.

The 1993 Chevrolet Caprice had three optional OE tire fitments. Depending on the option group and Caprice trim these were P215/70/15, P225/70/15 and P235/70/15.

There is no fuse. Headlights work on a circuit breaker.

What is the engine in the Caprice? In the Suburban? If they are a 305/350 then they can be interchanged. I have a 1985 Caprice Classic with a 305 and the tranny came out of a 1987 Suburban. It depends on the engine.

In the '95-'96 caprices there was a 4.3 or if you have an ex-cop car there is a 5.7 h.o.

Disconnect the battery. Remove the wires from the starter then unbolt it. Lower the starter, then fit the new one in. Bolt up the starter and connect the wiring. Reconnect the battery.

I believe the answer is no. I have wheels that fit on a camaro, an s-10, and a gmc s-15. They don't fit on my 93 Caprice. Bolt pattern is different.
