1998 Cadillac Eldorado ProblemsCar Won't Start Because of Anti-Theft System That Uses Raised-Chip Key
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 auto level ride compressor may fail causing the rear of the vehicle to ride to high or too low.
