Cadillac has recalled 1998-1999 DeVille vehicles because the side impact air bag sensors may be faulty. This could result in unintended deployment of the side impact air bags, which may injure passengers. Dealers will replace both side impact sensing modules.
Cadillac has recalled 2000-2001 DeVille vehicles because the seat belt buckles may require too much effort to release. This may delay exiting the vehicle in the event of a crash. Dealers will inspect the belts, modify latch plates, and replace the affected retractor if necessary. Dealers will also add "snap on" latch clips to ensure proper insertion of the buckles.
The anti-lock brake system hydraulic control unit (HCU) may leak brake fluid. A brake fluid leak may compromise braking ability, which could result in an accident. Dealers will inspect and replace the HCU if necessary.
Cadillac has recalled 2000 DeVille vehicles due to an improper routing of the cruise control cable. The cable end may contact the brake master cylinder and fracture, which may cause the throttle to remain open. Dealers will install a new cruise control cable bracket and replace the cable if necessary.
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.
