      No way to tell via the internet (for obvious reasons) how much to repair any body work. The only reliable method for an auto body repair estimate is go to a local auto body shop in your area for a thorough (and hands-on) inspection.

    Why won't my windshield wipers turn off.
    have already changed the switch

      It is possible that the switched side of the relay for this system is stuck in the closed position.

      Below I have included an image that shows a diagnostic procedure for the wiper system. If you need any additional electrical diagrams or diagnostic charts let me know.

      Touching these cables together discharges any remaining electricity in the vehicle and resets the vehicle computer and would clear engine error codes in most circumstances. Your problem could be a stuck floater on the fuel pump, could of happened last time you filled up your car, if that's the case I would fill up the tank fully and then see if it starts to work again. If not, the sender unit is going to be the issue.

    Windshield wiper switch
    How to change out the switch

      Don't replace the switch if the wipers are running continuous because it will not solve it. AutoZone has step by step replacement procedure on their website with pics.

    How do I remove the right outside mirror?
    I scraped it nearly off backing into the garage. I have to replace the whole assembly.

      In almost all cases the door trim panel has to be removed and then the mirror mounting bolts are right there. So, find a video on YouTube on how to remove the trim panel because every car is different and if you do not follow details, plastic will break.

    The power door locks don`t work
    78,000 I was told by the dealer that my door lock module needs to be replaced The locks don`t work from any of the doors

      I'm sure the dealership could do better testing than I can from here. I'd check applicable fuses. I'd check for applicable trouble codes dealing with door lock modules or communications.

      My info showed a rim module that can control all the other door lock modules. It shows to be on the back of rear seat. I can't tell you from here that the module is faulty?

      there is linkage under the cowl something must have broke under there. for starts pull the wiper arm off and see if the stud it goes on is stripped if its not pull the plastic piece that's under your wiper arms you will see something broken under there.

      Just tell the dealer to fix your horn, they do not need further instruction than that. I hope that you did not get billed for having your horn "fixed" by your mechanic except maybe a small checkout fee.

    Coloring coming off seat
    bottom cushin is losing its color on both side they are heated seats im looking for a cause and a fix nobody usally sits in passenger seat thank you

      I would take this issue up with Cadillac directly for a free fix. There is no excuse for this kind defective goods on a Cadillac. The service manager at Cadillac dealers has a lot of latitude to make a decision to warranty stuff, even stuff as old as 2009. My close friend since childhood is a service manager of a huge Cadillac dealer in New York. He tells me stories. Internally, they use the term "goodwill" to cover repairs that would be out of warranty (if they want to). He said the people most likely to receive goodwill are repeat Cadillac buyers.

    The finish is coming of the seat where you sit
    interior is gray but the bottom cushing is losing it color and hardly any body sits in the passenger seat they are heated seats not sure if that has something to do with it

    HVAC Blower on High but very little air out the bottom and dash Vents. Defroster is Fine
    the Blower has been replaced and even when on High there is very little air coming out the under dash vents or the dash vents. Only the Defroster works well.

      I need to know what happens when you move the mode switch off of defroster to floor? Does the air continue to come out of the defroster vents when it is the other positions that should stop the defroster?
      HouseCallAuto

      The air flow stops going to the windshield vents and it tries to come out the Dash and under dash vents.
    • HouseCallAuto
      1/2/2014 HouseCallAuto
      The most likely cause is a faulty mode door actuator that is able to begin to move enough to engage the defroster but stops moving before moving the door position enough to allow air flow to the other positions.

      Is it under the dash and is it hard to replace?
      HouseCallAuto
      1/3/2014 HouseCallAuto
      It is under the dash but at this point the advice has to be specific. Buy a repair manual or find the procedure online to "replace mode door actuator - deville". And I might just remove the actuator first and move the door with my hand to confirm that the actuator is the cause.

    What do you recommend for changing the tape deck to a CD player
    I'm using a CD player with a cassette adapter and it's driving me crazy! The tape player is acting nuts when I put in the tape it clicks from side to side then spits the tape out
