Question Answered: 

Your question doesnt mention which headlights you have... but with conventional bulbs, you should be able to gain access by removing the inner fenderwell (the black fender skirt inside the wheelwell). Alldata does say though, that if you have the TVP bulbs, you will have to remove the front bumper. Good luck.

It's not uncommon for the brake light switch (or stoplight switch) to be the cause of this problem.

Question Answered: 

Typically when a car shakes real bad when pressing brakes it is caused by the brake rotors being badly warped. The "feeling like it is gonna die" part throws a little wrench into this theory, but I would start with a good brake inspection.

From the question I'm not sure if you mean its not blowing at all, or its not heating up. If its not heating up, the first thing I would check is the coolant level. The thermostat could be sticking as well. If its not BLOWING.. you may have an issue with your blower motor or blower motor resistor. Any other details would help. good luck

I agree with Patrick on this one. there are so many components that could be causing your noise that the best thing to do is make an appointment with a shop you trust and let them give it a good inspection. Could be ball joints, tie rod ends, steering linkage, etc... Bring this one in for a professional opinion.

Ouch. I would go 3,1,2.. but you may not have that option. To get this car running right, you may be forced to do all of the first 3. 4 and 5 can wait a little longer - but if you are already 20k over your 40k recommended tune-up, you dont want to push that one. That is possibly the reason you are having the issues with 1,2, and 3. good luck!

Good news... you have a timing chain. this is not something you need to replace. You just made yourself $1000 it would have cost to do a "timing belt" if it had one - spend it on your wife!

Question Answered: 

Many GM vehicles have a problem with the passkey/passlock system. Im not sure on the 2001 DeVille, but I would at least TRY this: turn the key into the ACC position (dont crank the car) and let it sit for 10 minutes. See if there is a THEFT light. after 10 minutes, try to start it. (this is how you reset the passlock system) This works on most GM's when the passkey system acts up, although I have not tried it with a DeVille. Good Luck.

Hi TomTom51.. you do have to disconnect a couple things to get that cabin air filter out, so its very possible that one of them didnt get plugged back in. I would start there. just ask the shop that did it real nicely: "hey, any chance something didnt get plugged back in?" These are the steps that alldata outlines: 1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. 2. Remove the passenger junction box (PJB and PJB bracket). See: Maintenance\Fuses and Circuit Breakers\Relay 3. Box\Service and Repair 4. Remove the side wall. 5. Disconnect the evaporator temperature sensor connector. 6. Disconnect the power MOS FET connector. (Full-auto air conditioner) Good luck
