Hello All, after replacing the voltage regulator, alternator, checking and replacing wires to alternator plug, test voltage on battery, good, voltage on alternator good.  Checked ground with multi meter checked voltage going in regulator connection, good.  Checked 6 amp fuse on right fender goid - stumped cannot figure out why alternator does not charge battery.  HEEEELP!

second thing I found this (fuseable link?) on green, red2, blue wire going in firewall, anyone know what and why it is?AB6173F1-C94E-4B27-A206-4A7687625B7A.jpeg. Thanks

Get to where the negative battery cable connects to the cars frame under the battery shelf and clean that to shinny metal and put it back together 

clean the battery terminals to shinny metal 

A bad connection at those  locations will not make the  charge circuit complete 

Just my best guess 

Enjoy 

Not sure just using a spray on the regulator harness will clean up the metal terminals inside  enough 

The individual clips in the harness can be remove and reinstalled 

They snap into the harness 

You will need to release them by studying them to see the clip that holds each one in place 

I slide a number 11 exactly blade into the back of the harness to release the holding clip being very careful 

They will then slide out of the harness 

Once out of the harness you can clean the metal connections themselves and reinstall them 

Do only one at a time not to mix them up 

Now sure you have good clean metal to metal 

Enjoy 

Thanks Tony and Ginny 429 I will try that as soon as I can.

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

Posted by Jeff Kinzler on November 3, 2019 at 10:00pm 9 Comments

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!

Thanks for letting me join the club.  Picked up this ‘64 Coupe Deville a few months ago out of Beverly MA, the car has few stickers on it from various Cadillac clubs, didn’t know if anyone might recognize it from it’s “Glory days.” Everything seems pretty healthy except for the body and some very Mickey Mouse repairs, was wondering if anyone had any leads on…
