Oxygen Sensors

Where is the oxygen sensor located on a 1995 cadillac deville 4.9L?

Today is your lucky day, I just changed both of my oxygen sensors on the same year and motor. The first one is located directly on the exhaust manifold in front of radiator as you open your hood on the car look straight down and you will see it. The other sensor is a little more difficult to find by looking straight in the engine. The second sensor is located near the firewall on the exhaust manifold. The only problem is, you have to get underneath the car to remove the sensor. Just follow your converter directly toward the engine intake manifold and you will see it, make sure you have a flashlight, regardless of how much daylight is outside. Once I got under the car a found it, it was easy to come off and replace. Good luck!

Where is the fuse box located in the 1992 Cadillac deville?

There are actually 4 fuse panels on this DeVille.

1. Under the dash board to the left of the steering column, it will swing down if you pinch the tabs together, and has a cover marked fuses.

2. Under the dash to the right of the glove box. Getting to this one is a pain, you have to remove the plastic "Hush panel' from the bottom of the dash

3&4. Under the hood near the windshield there is a black plastic cover ~30 X 8" marked "fuses". the two plastic fasteners are 1/4 turn and the sheet metal one near the hood hinge is a regular nut. once you get this panel off, there are two rectangular covers marked "Fuses" with clips on each end. your Maxi fuses are here.

How to change the starter on a 1989 Cadillac?

To complicated to answer in this space. Buy yourself a Hayne's or Chilton's repair manual for this specific car. There will be detailed instructions for most DIY repairs. Any auto parts store will have them. If it's the 4.5 liter engine, you need to remove the small plastic cover over the flywheel. Then unbolt the starter bolts. It will be tricky to get it to fit between the engine and the frame to get it out, but it can be done! It's a real pain to do, so good luck!

How do you reset a 1990 Cadillac DeVille computer system after self-servicing?

I had my 1991 sedan deville towed the other night, and the tow truck driver told me that the cars climate control is the cars computer also, said you need to push those buttons in a certain sequence, or a couple at the same time, he just didnt know what to push. i checked that with Cadillac and they agreed, they just didnt know how to do it either, go figure. ive also heard disconecting the negative terminal of your battery then reconecting a few seconds after will do the trick. I also read in a manual (i havnt been able to find since) that reseting the computer is done by idleing the car for a certain period of time in park and then in drive while the climate control is set to "off". when/if i find that again i will put it in. a little.

ok found it. If you lose battery power or the battery is disconecte, your cars computer must be programmed. it takes just over 20 minutes to do it.

If you want to do it your self, here's how:

  1. Apply the parking brake
  2. Make sure the front wheels are straight.
  3. Turn off the electronic climate control.
  4. Start the engine in park and let it idle for 15 minutes.
  5. Put your foot on the brake pedal, shift the transaxle to Drive and let it idle for 3 minutes or more. do not accelerate the engine.
  6. With the vehicle in drive, turn the electronic climate control to "auto" and let engine idle for 3 minutes or more.
  7. Turn the engine off.
  8. Now your computer is programmed.

That is from the manual to my 1991 caddy deville. I guess disconnect your battery then follow those steps. Good luck

Actually most Cadillacs use the same method to reset the ECM and the BCM. Assuming that the the problem that caused the check engine light to come on is not a hard fault. With the engine off and the ignition switch (the key) turned to run go to the climate control buttons and press the 'OFF' and 'Warmer' button and the same time until you see the fuel control panel change to all 8s then let go of the climate control buttons. The fuel panel will give a readout of all the failure codes recorded up to the last 50 times. If the cause of a failure code has been resolved turn the ignition switch off then turn it back on to 'run' then while holding the 'Off' button on the control panel press on the 'HI FAN' button on the climate control panel at the same time. Hold the two buttons for about 5 seconds. Turn the ignition switch off for a few seconds and then start the engine again. Allow the enging to reach normal operating temperature or drive it about 4 or 5 miles which will cause the engine to reach normal operating temperature quicker. Observe the check engine light to see if it illumintes again. There are many operational checks that can be made through these control panels both with the engine off and while running. It is best to have the manufacturers shop service manual to do many of these tests properly. Cadillac shop service manuals from the dealer will cost around $100.00. You can often get the manual used through eBay or some other source for half price or less.

1996 Cadillac trunk will not close?

is it the electric pul down that isn't operating.

If it is and you cant get a new one, remove it from the car, remove electric motor( the gear on the trunk hold down tends to break, it is plastic).

Disassemble from the top metal plate(2 screws) raise it up and inspect the gear, if missing teeth just hold the gear and rotate the trunk hold down it will lower. Re install in car.

You may have to adjust the heigh to get the trunk to shut correctly just raise or lower the hold down(you can do this while it is in the car)

Electronics Engineering

Why is a light bulb a resistor?

Most simple incandescent light bulbs are made of a thin section of tungsten through which the current flows.

This section of tungsten is called a "filament".

The tungsten filament has electrical resistance and so is a resistor.

As a resistor it develops a voltage drop. This voltage drop multiplied by the amperage passing through it equals the wattage of the bulb.

The heated tungsten gets to thousands of degrees above room temperature and becomes hot enough to produce yellow-white visible light.

As a resistor, the tungsten light bulb has a positive resistance coefficient.

This means that the electrical resistance goes up when the filament becomes hot.

For example, a 100 watt light bulb operated at 120 volts - it does not matter if it is AC or DC for this calculation - will have a resistance of 144 ohms when hot and draw .833 ampere.

When cold the filament typically has a resistance of only 10 ohms which increases as the filament heats up.

An interesting note:

The typical incandescent light bulb life is between 1000 and 2000 hours.

Some "long life" incandescent light bulbs simply have a thicker but longer section of tungsten and can run 5,000 to 20,000 hours or more without failing.

This type of bulb is sold to hotels and other places that want to reduce the replacement frequency of the bulbs.

If a manufacturer desired to do so they could make a light bulb which would last even longer than 20,000 hours by increasing the filament thickness but they feel that economically it would not be desirable for them, as they would sell less light bulbs.
