The evap sensor needs to be replaced, but we can't find out where it belongs.

How do you get the light on the driver side to turn off..the car wasn't in accident but seatbelt light is on dashboard

I have a 2005 Escalade with 86,000 on it. I brought it to the dealership to get a routine maintenance done on it (transmission flush). When I got it back, my transmission was slipping in 2nd gear and reved up to 4000rpm before shifting. They said the flush would not have done this and I believe so as well. However, around the 75000 mark, my transmission was hitting in gear hard and I had to bring it in to get it reprogrammed. Unfortunately, the car is not under warranty anymore and with the transmission done, they are saying it is $3,000 worth of work. Is there something I can do with Cadillac automotives to back up their work with a transmission going out under 100,000 miles? This is not up to par with such a luxury vehicle. Thank you

I found about 20 small ball bearings laying in my drive way! Was wondering if they could have fallen out of my 2007 Escalade?

today going to dallas from lawton okla

My daytime running lights don't work what do I need to do ?Where do I need to start.

How do you use the navigation system? I'm unable to enter a destination. Doesn't this work like a Tom-Tom? Please help. I have tried several times and also have read and re-read the user manual without success.

My Cadillac Escalade 2004 turns correctly on right turns and it very hard to turn on the left side turn. In short it feels like I have no power steering on the left side. This only happens when the truck is moving slow. I have had this looked at and power steering pump replace, still not steering left.

the engine warning light has been coming on. I took the car to Auto Zone to see what the error was. They were unable to get any reading from their hand held device. Is the only way to get a read out of the problem is to go to a dealer?
This engine light will turn off on its own and while driving pop up.

Got stuck in snow tryed to shift in 4lo and then went from neutral to drive and lost my gears grinds when you put it in park have to use my emer brake to park or will roll

Service ride control light keeps coming on.

cooling leaking in back of the engine near the oil filter is this near the rear freezeplug

Rear shocks are leaking down, during usage I hear the air pump run briefly to refill them. is there a aftermarket replacement or repair kit for these? original replacement cost is HIGH !!!! AND, What is the correct fluid for the front & rear differentials, are they independent of the trans ? THANXXXXX !!!!

not starting, need to check the starter

I drove the caddy home last night and it was running fine. Got up this morning and it acts like it is not getting fuel or firering. I poured fuel in the carberator but it still would not fire.

When im in my car, I depress the brake pedal before i start the car. I start the car, and attempt to move the gear selector into a gear. Fifty percent of the time. It wont go into gear. I have to literally force it down into gear. I have been putting this car into gear for ten years now. I know you first have to have the brake depressed and you must also bring the gear selector toward you as well before put it into gear.

After driving and running errands turned on cadillac to have the engine light come on and the message board to read Reduced Engine Power - could not get the cadillac to go over 35mph

In my 2002 cadillac escalade, when I turn on the A/C hot air blows out. I get cold air in the back of the truck when I turn on the switch for the back. Is this a blend door actuator problem and how do I fix it?

The truck will not go into reverse and rpm go to 5 before shifting from 1st to 2nd

I have an Escalade and everything ran fine shifted fine and then all of the sudden the truck would not go. It was like somone took it out of gear completely. When I turn it off and wait about 5 ot 10 mins it will move and shift just fine for about 10 feet and then it does the same thing. I have been told many thing and somone told me it may be the torque convertor. It has never shifted hard or anything it just stopped moving. I would rather replace the torque converter other than a 1700--3000 transmisson. Please help if you know where to start....Thank you

can i use a salvaged body control module or do i have to go to dealer? where is it ?

I took my Escalade to get smog tested and it didn't fail or pass the test, its was rejected. I have had not problems with it, such as codes or dead battery, nothing, everyhing has been just fine with it. When I got it home, I connected my code scanner to it to check for codes, once connected the scanner gave me the message "connection error". As if the port is dead. The scanner worked just fine on my other car, so I'm sure its not the scanner.
What could be the problem?

Check engine light comes on when the gas tank is below 1/2. Replaced gas cap and that seemed to help for awhile, but its doing it again? Any ideas?

The "Service Ride Control" message appears on my 2004 Escalade ESV, every time I start it. I think the problem is the back left sensor. I removed the back left wheel,so I could get to the sensor. I then remove the sensor from the bracket and moved the are up and down several times. I thought I had the problem fixed because the message went away, but now it it back. Can anybody help me? Also does anyone know if that sensor can keep the little air compressor behind the back left tire from coming on? Thanks in advance for any help that may be offered. Spearchucker

my 2006 driver seat will not work. sensor check shows power but will not move or heat up

I have replaced the plugs wires air filter and fuel filter and still when i take off from a signal light it sometimes stalls and if i hold the gas pedal down it finally starts to pick up speed and run better.

I have a ESV with 78,000 and my transmission needs to be completely rebuilt and it has a transfer case leak. Has anyone else had transmission issues? I've owned it since 45,000 and the whole front differential and axle assembly had to be replaced at 60,000. my mechanic thinks it has more miles then the odometer shows? any way to prove this?

when i drive the service ride control turn on and it stops slowly

No oil pressure in engine.

My caddy won't accelerate when turning either way like its having a hard time to move. It will go but struggles when trying to go....
