I am trying to replace my front bumper on a 2003 Cadillac Deville. The bolts that I see on the left and right sides of the bumper has a part that unscrews but the bolt itself remains therefore the bumper is still attached.

OK the driver door puddle light, code access buttons, and power door lock button do not work while engine is off. BUT... the door lock button works when engine is running. Also, It seems as if the car doesnt know the door is shut (door ajar sensor) because when i hit the lock on the remote it beeps twice (like a door is open) and another thing is that the dome lights stay on for far too long (like the door is open)
I have checked most of the fuses but cannot check the relays (silver can types)
Can anyone diagnose what is blown that powers this door after the engine is off?

The speedometer is fine

After having our Aviator serviced replacing Serpentine belt, when our car was brought around for us to pick up and the person that brought the car around stated that "your steering is really, really hard I had to use a lot of muscle to make it turn" advised no idea why that would be as it has been totally fine (we keep our Car totally serviced at all times) Advised the Service Manager and she requested the car be put back on rack to check..they found that the all the power steering fluid was gone due to the hose possibly being cut while installing the Serpentine belt and replaced the hose and fluid at no extra charge...since this time, our car has been intermittently leaking power steering fluid we have taken it back a few times to recheck and keep advising no leak. Took the car back in yesterday and insisted they recheck it further still nothing even after putting a dye to help detect and still nothing. Took car for drive came back advised we needed to replace the Power Steering Rack. Question is could the forcing of turning the steering wheel with no power steering fluid have caused this?


When using the remote to lock doors front windows may lower. This happens occasionaly. Radio goes on/off when driving on rough road.This happens constantly. Car only has 35000 miles

I've been told my output shaft seal is leaking, also rear differential output shaft left and right are leaking & the Vanos valve both left & right are leaking. I'm told the Vanos valves are located below the valve cover gaskets & require removal of the valve covers for resealing. I've spent $1400 for water pump and was wondering if this should've been brought to my attention at that time?

ive changed plugs,distributor cap,rotor,wires,oil filter for the oil and air.once i start in the morning it cranks,during the day once its warm sometimes it turns over and over but wont crank ive checked everything that i know! it seems that the heat is affecting it somewhat,because as long as i don't wait more than 2 minutes to restart it's ok but oncce it sits its hard to start

trying to start just getting a clicking sound

The carpet is wet in the front and back seat of the driver's side.

The tailgate won't stay up. I've priced the two gas struts (one on each side). How do I get to them to change them. It looks like they are in the roof.

Dont want to put too much pressure on hub and bearings

i tried to recharge my a/c two months ago and it leaked now my car engine dont start right away, when it does it smells like gas and it takes a lot of gas every time too. also my oil leaks all the time. thats not all either it also revs or jumps when sitting at a red light or when in park. o and the service engine soon light is on sometime and off sometime.

I unplugged the AFM and took the car for a drive but there was no change in symptoms, which are: frequent stalling on cold mornings, stumble, hesitates, occasional backfie. The car has done 50,000 miles.

I have been quoted $1700.00 for this new AFM. I would like to get another opinion before I commit to this repair.

Thanks in advance.

Replaced my shifter box last week. while driving this morning my headlights went out and all sensor lights came on. could these two issue be related? I have not had any issues with this vehicle. I also had front brake pads replace yesterday.
