Cadillac Eldorado Problems

Problems with anti-theft systems using the raised-chip key can prevent the car from starting. The wires in the steering column to the ignition lock cylinder tend to break. The key and ignition lock cylinder should be replaced to correct this condition.

The trunk pull down switch may fail causing the trunk lid not to close completely. Our technicians tell us that the failed switch can be replaced without changing the complete pull down motor assembly.

The engine may develop an oil leak from the lower crankcase portion of the engine block. Our technicians tell us that the engine must be removed from the vehicle to properly repair this oil leak.

Cadillac Eldorado Recalls

GM has recalled 1995-1997 Cadillac Deville, Eldorado, Seville, and Oldsmobile Aurora vehicles because the fuel rail and fuel system return line may crack and leak fuel. In the presence of an ignition source, a fuel leak may result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel rail and return line.

The inner tie rod nuts may be loose. This may cause detachment of the steering linkage and a loss of steering control. Dealers will inspect and secure the tie rod nuts. Dealers will also check and adjust the toe setting of the wheel alignment.

Cadillac has recalled 1995 DeVille, Eldorado, and Seville vehicles because the air bags may deploy inadvertently. The air bag sensing and diagnostic module may experience water intrusion, which may cause the system to malfunction. Dealers will clean the exterior case of the sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) and apply a potting compound to the SDM case and electrical connector body.
