Turn Signals and Hazard Lights

Where is the turn signal flasher located on a 1997 Sedan DeVille D'elegance Cadillac?

Most flashers are mounted on or near the fuse panel under the dash. However if you still can't find the flasher you can call any auto repair shop or Cadillac dealer and ask for this type of info. , EzForJesus On the 97 has 2 fuse panels, one under the hood on the driver's side and the other is attached to the rear of the back seat on the drivers side. I don't think the flasher is located by either.

On my 1996 DeVille, the flasher is a 3 prong, square unit that is located just above the emergency break pedal on the inside face of the lower dash panel. To replace this flasher you should start by removing the 2, 9/32" bolt head retaining screws holding the black access panel just above the break pedal. Lay down on your back and look up inside the dash. You may find the round hazard flasher high just above your head, this is not it. Stick you hand up along the panel in front of the emergency break pedal. Locate with your hand a 2 inch long square relay box and move it to unhook it from it's clip. (If the flasher is the factory flasher it will have a metal clip retaining it under the dash. Your new part will not have this clip.) Route the old flasher and wire down so that it hangs from under the dash. Now you can see it and disconnect it. There are multiple connectors, but only three of them line-up and actually have metal receptors inside the socket. Take note of the removal of the flasher so you are not confused during reinstallation. I think the other connectors are for additional features not needed in the US. Take the part to the parts store or just replace with new one. Relocate the flasher safely up in the dash in relatively the same place and make sure it won't move around. return the black panel to its position above the break pedal and replace the 2, 9/32" retaining screws.

Where is the fuse box on a Cadillac allante?

There are several fuse boxes on the Cadillac Allante. I know that, in particular, the 1993 Allante has a fuse box in the trunk, right next to the battery, underneath the ashtray assembly, and then one more in the engine compartment. For the one in the trunk-- lift the trunk. Facing the rear of the car, looking at the back window, move over to the right rear wall of the trunk and flip up the panel there. It is a carpeted panel that is not obvious. Shake that panel a bit and you will see that you can flip it up. I believe it has some Velcro tabs that keep it down. There is a fuse box sitting there inside the shell of the body once you open that flap. You won't miss it. For the one by the battery, which is located within a shelf behind the passenger seat---slide the carpeted shelfing facade towards the passenger's seat. There will be one electrical connection that goes to the speaker that is connected to that panel, so be careful not to pull it out too fast or hard. The panel is a little hard to slide, so patiently jiggle on it. I recommend you put a few fingers behind the back/end of the panel and push it towards your body. Once you remove that panel, you will see the fuse panel right next to the battery. For the fuse panel underneath the ashtray---carefull pry up on that assembly, which is by the gear shift. It is shaped like a box that just sits simply in that slot. Pull up and put to the side that ashtray assembly and look down. You will see a fuse panel just like the one in the trunk. The fuses in it and in the trunk are the very small type that are 10's, 20's, and 30's. For the fuse panel in the engine compartment, a fuse panel that looks similar to the one by the battery, go to the front of the car, open the hood, and look to the left and down. You will see a black box about 6" by 6". A flimsy cover covers this panel. Carefully pry up the taps that keep this cover down, and pull out the cover. There you will find larger fuses.

Those are the locations of the 4 fuse boxes on the 1993 Cadillac Allante. Good luck, and don't forget to consult the owner's manual to find out for which electrical function each single fuse serves. Again, care is important. The Allante, over all, is a fragile car--very fine but not tough, so don't pull or pry on things too hard. Feel free to consult me with any other questions about the Allante by writing me at grantwest@hotmail.com. I also highly recommend the services rendered by one Mr. Dick Hussey at AllanteSource. www.allantesource.com. If I can't help you, I know he and Ron at that shop can! Good luck!

What would cause a 1997 Cadillac Eldorado to overheat?

Internal combustion engines produce a lot of heat, and need to be cooled. There are three things that carry excess heat away from the engine; air, oil, or radiator fluid.

Whenever an engine is overheating, one of these three things is not circulating properly through or around the engine. Check the radiator and make sure that air can get through. Drain and flush the radiator and coolant, and make sure that there is sufficient coolant (water & anti-freeze) and that it is circulating properly. Change the engine oil.

How do you install a starter on a 1989 Cadillac Eldorado?

try going to the parts store and buying a chilton manual for the make and model of your vehicle. It has diagrams and step by step instructions. It will cost somewhere around 30 dollars of so and if you ever need to fix any other part of the same vehicle you will have it at your fingertips.

Disconnect the negative terminal on the battery. And this is What Chiltons doesn't tell you:I've done it too many times. You probably need to remove the pipe from the manifold and pull it towards the front of the engine until it comes off the male end of the muffler in front of the catalytic converter. The rest is smooth sailing because you can't get the starter out of there without it being removed. The bolts on the manifold are tricky and may requre plenty of liquid wrench, patience and a double jointed socket. These starters and the whole damn car were notorious for electrical problems. Improve your chances by having the starter rebuilt by a professional shop, you'll save money and they'll spec it according to your car, not like the generac crap you get at Auto whatever.Getting the starter out requires a little twisting and turning but it does come out.Finally, buy a grounding wire and attach it to the ground bolt on the starter on top of the existing ground wire. Take the other end and secure it to the frame of the car, doesn't have to be long, drill a hole or find an existing hole and put a safety washer and bolt on it, securing it to the frame. I sanded the area down a little to have a good contact. The aluminum blocks on these vehicles don't ground well and it's worth the extra effort. The poor grounding can lead to failures in the ignition switch, alternator, battery, etc. Good luck.

Where is the ignition module on a 1993 Cadillac ElDorado and what does it look like?

Referenced from 'Chilton 28540 Deville/Fleetwood/Eldorado/Seville 1990-98 Repair Manual' Page 2-10: "Ignition Module The HEI Module, acting as an electronic ON/OFF switch controls the current flow in the primary winding of the ignition coil. This switching action induces a high voltage in the ignition coil secondary winding which is directed through the rotor ans secondary leads to fire the spark plugs. It is not necessary to remove the distributer from the car. 1. Remove the distributer Cap 2. Remove the rotor" This is the Ignition module. Don't remove or replace unless you understand how and know the procedure for changing.

How do you change the front brakes on a 1995 Cadillac ElDorado?

Start by removing the front wheels. Once the wheels are off you will see the rotors and caliper on the front of the strut. Take a socket and rachet and remove the two bolts one on the top and one at the bottom of the caliper. I believe they are 9MM hex bit. Pull the caliper off and the brakes will come with it. Remove the old pads and use a C clamp or C vise grip to push back the brake cylinder. Install the new pads making sure they are on correctly.(The easiest way to know this is to just remember how the old ones came off.) Reinstall the caliper on the rotor.(If it doesnt go on the brake cylinder is not back far enough.) reinstall the two bolts, double checking to be sure they are tight. Reinstall the front wheel and torque the lug nuts.

How do you change the rotors on a 1994 Cadillac Eldorado?

Hey Anthony==First take off the wheel then the 2 bolts that hold the caliper on and remove the caliper. The rotor then slides off. GoodluckJoe

I would also like to add that the caliper mounting bolts are torque sensitive and must be thrown away once they are removed and new ones purchased from the dealership are about 10$ a piece kinda pricey but i have had one of these break while driving and it can cost alot more then 40$ for the repairs. Also they must be torqued to 90 ft./Lbs

Where is the starter located on a 1996 Cadillac Eldorado Northstar engine?

starter is inside engine.yes I said inside.intake valley and injection system removed,starter is in valley.Big job!!!

here it is!The starter on a northstar engine is located beneath the upper intake plenum.

This is correct. I have had one replaced on a 95 eldorado. I suggest you go to your favorite auto parts, buy the starter and take car and starter to GM and let them change it. Buying the starter yourself will save around 300.00. .
