1997 Cadillac DeVille Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 1997 Cadillac DeVille based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
Illumination of the Check Engine Light may be the result of a loose or worn gas cap.
The anti-lock brake system (ABS) control module may fail causing the ABS light to illuminate. Failed modules should be replaced to restore ABS operation.
The air conditioning compressor may become noisy or develop a refrigeration leak, requiring replacement.
The spark plugs should be replaced every 100,000 miles. Our technicians recommend replacing the spark plug wires also at this time.
The parking brake may not release automatically due to a failed vacuum switch or actuator. Our technicians tell us that if vacuum is supplied to the actuator when the transmission is in gear, the vacuum switch is functioning and replacing the actuator should correct this concern.
