I took it to the local GMC but nobody there had ever worked on an xlr? They replaced the cigarette fuse. $140 I don't smoke. They spoke right away about having to remove the lid? The battery went dead. really, remove the lid? No re-set button or? Someone mentioned Fluid? where? Know of a great mechanic near Santa Rosa,CA 95436 ? Thanks so much... jc
Just purchased a 2006 xlr - base and am interested in locating lowering springs (1 to 1 1/2" drop), and an h-pipe to eliminate the resonator. Can you be of any help in letting know where I can locate these parts.
Thanks in advance, Larry
All electronics working. Code reader didn't return anything.
We were in a accident the car is totaled but the airbags never deployed. I am going to try to rebuild the car, I am sure it is going to be tough. But I am going to give it all I can.
Change the fan but it's still not working
Tried the switch in the glove box, went to on and off and tried both ways still not help. trunk button works, goes up and down but cannot figure out why the top will not go up or down, like I said just replace the battery cause it went dead. the top was down at the time the battery was replaced. never happened before.
I have this beautiful car but lately the top will not go up . My husband have tried everything. The top DOES go down but it will not go up. What do you think causes this? Also we were advised that , it could be a hydraulic fluid issue? What kindof hydraulic fluid would go into the hydraulic pump of a 2004 Cadillac XLR ?
The anti theft sys won't let it out if park, is it a fuse or something we can by-pass to get it out of park.
above the passenger door is a mechanical mechanism that has wore a hole in the trunk closing cable (bad design) that is leaking fluid when closing the trunk. Is there a fix for this or does this cable have to be replace?
Firestone has quoted about half that.....only thing is that they would not be able to get the warning message off the information center.
being told that there are two fuel pumps for my car....one is available, the other on national back order. we are 233rd on a list to get one...how long will that take?
Top will not go down had it looked at, at a chevy store, tech put on a tech 2 To see what codes came up. The only code that it came up with that would have any possibilty effecting the roof. Was a truck sensor showing truck to be open,but it's not open The truck will open and close when you push the buttons
Now I don't know if this is related but we have found the truckbl open 3 time. Don't know if the button is being accidentally pushed in my pocket. But one of the 3 times was the wife had the car and she does not keep the FOB in here pocket Where would the truck sensor be located and how could it be checked. Or any other suggestions thanks in advance
Sometimes it will reset by turning engine off/on. What is the issue?
The problem just started tonight ..The car won't turn off.. I tried moving the gear shift back and forth and then press the on and off switch for the car and it is still running
bottom of car hits bottom of driveway when I pull onto street, was told this is broke the bolt holding radiator in place. The only reason I knew that I had problem was I could see something in front end of car was lower on one side, no problems with car running hot or leak that I knew of. Was told when radiator moved out of place it cracked radiator?
I have a 2004 xlr and sometimes the trunk won't close by pushing the button under the trunk lid
No power to radio or Onstar. Saw powder like substance around radio frame.
My drive control and hood engine control has been replaced twice because of water not draining out of the needle size hole on the hood module compartment. My corvette/XLR certified mechanic said I should drill a much larger hole in the compartment. I can not even find out how the water is getting in.
Is there a common problem with oil leaks from the engine????
No other details at this time….
I was told that 07 was the first year for turn by turn. I now have an 06 and it doesn't have it. Can it be installed after market?

It appears to be acting like it is low in fluid. Can anyone tell me what the reservoir looks like and how do I add fluid if it is low? It is supposed to be in the left rear storage area, but I don't know what to look for.I don't see anything in there that looks like a reservoir.Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I have a aftermarket top and bottom mesh grille and aftermarket exhaust system only from the catback. Caddy dealer fills the problem is due to the mesh grill not getting enough airflow i don't beleave that's the problem and i don't have the OEM grille or nor the OEM exhaust to prove them wrong the car is still covered under warr. I fill it due to vacuum leak. thanks Derrick
