Key Codes

Posted on August 26, 2013 at 11:42pm 9 Comments

Hello All,
I have one of the original keys to my 63 and it has the code of 9477. Is there anyway to find out the code of the other key. It would be great to get a set of keys cut to code just like when she came off the showroom floor.

Thanks in Advance,

Front Window Track

Posted on August 26, 2013 at 11:10pm 3 Comments

Hello All,
My driver side front window keeps coming off the track. I have fixed it three times and it keeps bouncing out. Does anyone know of a permanent fix for this issue. Is this a common problem or just bad luck on my part.

Thanks,

Is there a separate Starter Relay, or does the Solenoid serve that purpose?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 30, 2019 at 5:57pm 7 Comments

Hello All.

I will be replacing the starter solenoid tomorrow (actually my mechanic will do the work, I'll just supervise). In checking the FSM electrical schematic and chapter verbiage, I don't see anything that looks like (or is referred to as) a starter Relay. It seems the Starter Solenoid serves the function and there's no separate relay. Right or Wrong?

If wrong, where…

Starter Solenoid replacement-how difficult? Where to buy?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 20, 2019 at 8:24pm 8 Comments

Hello All.

I believe the starter solenoid has gone bad in my 64 DeVille. When I turn the key, often all I get is a click, then if I try a few times again the starter turns perfectly. All battery cables are on tight and the battery is good. So, I believe this problem is the solenoid. Where do I buy the right solenoid and is it necessary to remove the starter in order to swap it out? …
