1996 Cadillac Eldorado Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 1996 Cadillac Eldorado

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.

I lucked into a 1996 Eldorado Touring Edition with only 82k on her. Garage kept, everything works perfectly and the car runs and handles exceptionally. I personally think my 96' looks as good or better than the STS that Cadillac puts out now. It looks more like a real Caddillac. Amazing features, decent gas mileage average about 16 in town 20.5 on the highway. Every black dude I pass giv...
