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.
Power seat motors and seat position sensors may fail causing the power seats to act erratically.
The auto level ride compressor may fail causing the rear of the vehicle to ride to high or too low.
The head light switch may fail causing the head lights to become inoperative.
