RepairPal Expert Overview:

A front brake hose or anti-lock brake system (ABS) wheel speed sensor wire may be damaged by contact with the wheelhouse splash shield. A damaged brake hose may leak brake fluid, reducing braking efficiency and/or illuminating the brake warning light. A damaged ABS sensor wire may illuminate the the ABS warning light and/or cause a loss of ABS function. This may result in reduced braking efficiency and an increased risk of a crash. Dealers will trim the front wheelhouse splash shields and inspect the brake hoses and sensor wire. Hoses and sensor wires showing signs of abrasion will be replaced.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Cadillac has recalled 1998 Devillle and Eldorado vehicles because the purge evaporate emissions wiring harness was improperly routed. This could interfere with the speed control and throttle linkage, and may cause the throttle to stay open. Dealers will inspect the harness for proper routing and then install a tie strap to the harness.

Summary:
THE CRUISE CONTROL AND THROTTLE CABLES ARE ATTACHED TO THE SAME THROTTLE VALVE ACTUATING LEVER AT THE THROTTLE HOUSING. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE PLASTIC BUSHING ON EITHER CABLE COULD BREAK DUE TO ENVIRONMENTAL INFLUENCES COUPLED WITH VIBRATION. IF THE BUSHING BREAKS, THE OUTER CABLE HOUSING CAN SEPARATE FROM THE BUSHING. IN THIS CASE, DURING APPLICATION OF THE THROTTLE PEDAL WITHOUT CRUISE CONTROL BEING ENGAGED, THE OUTER TUBE COULD CATCH ON THE EDGE OF THE BROKEN BUSHING.
