2000 Cadillac DeVille Questions
2000 Cadillac DeVille Recalls
Excess weight on the key ring can cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position without warning, turning off the engine. This defect can also affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. Dealers will install two 13mm key rings and key insert into the vehicle's ignition keys to correct this concern.
Cadillac has recalled 2000-2002 DeVille vehicles because the seat belt retractors may not lock as required when in an accident. This increases the risk of injury to vehicle occupants. Dealers will install a retainer kit to the safety belt pretensioners.
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.

air only flows in defrost mode. How do I replace the air flow actuator?
2000 Caddy DeVille: Ran great until 12 years old. Did all the requird maintainance on the caddy - Leaked oil since I bought it brand new. now still leaking heavier, went to auto to check why service engine light soon and now they tell me they have to pull the engine (rebuild engine and trans and fix the oil leak head gasket) why so much only want to keep the car for another 2 years. Car runs ...
The Deville is a great car when it runs! Problem areas center around overheating, oil leaks, and ignition system faults. Overheating can be a real issue leading to blown headgaskets. Many of my friends have traded their Devilles in whe the problems get out of hand.
