2002 Cadillac DeVille Problems

Car Won't Start and Security Light is On

Problems with the 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 the key and ignition lock cylinder must be replaced to correct this condition.

Erratic Fuel Gauge Operation

It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.

Oil Leaks From Lower Engine Area

The engine may develop oil leaks 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.

2002 Cadillac DeVille Recalls

Ignition Lock Cylinder Concern

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.

GM Recalls 2002-2003 Vehicles Due to Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor Failure

GM recalls certain 2002-2003 Cadillac Devillle, Seville, Oldsmobile Aurora, and Pontiac Bonneville vehicles because the fuel tank pressure sensor may fail and cause a fuel leak. In the presence of an ignition source, a fuel leak may result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel tank pressure sensor.

Cadillac Recalls 2000-2002 DeVilles Due to Seat Belt Retractor Lock Up Failure

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.

I have owned a 2001 Deville for 6 years now. I put a lot of miles a week on it and it has proven to be extremely reliable. I currently have 185,000 miles. I find the maintenance to be very easy with the OBD system telling you what is wrong. All repairs have been easy and low cost. My Cadillac actually costs less than my bosses honda which is a POS. I am doing some maintenance now that I wish I ...
