Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

Thank you Jason

Mike, The flasher is on the framing above the lower dash panel cover as seen circled in picture below. From the factory it is held to the framing via a clamp but thru the years the clamp sometimes gets discarded or flasher left to hang loose. You may be able to reach under and over to get to the flasher, however removing the lower cover will give you direct access.

The lights would have to be disassembled to get to test the bulbs
Often the bulb socket needs to be cleaned up so the metals makes contact and conducts electricity again
The spring action at the bottom of the bulb can be made to work with some WD-40 and moving it up and down a bit
A lot has to do to the conditions the car was exposed to over its life time which is in most cases --unknown
Honestly electrical trouble shooting is some of the more difficult time consuming car repairs

You may need --a new friend --that is a --GEAR HEAD --to get the Cadillac you love back in working order
I would grab the first --great looking biker you could snag --future Cadillac light repair --DONE !
Worse things have been done to have --the car of your dreams running GREAT
( hope you get my humor ) --LOL ! ! !

Check your fuses in your fuse box

Thank you.   Turn sigs both sides, brake lights are only out on driver side......tried to see how to get at bulb and I think it's a big deal, can't reach from inside the trunk that I can see (I'm Michael's widow and my friend is not the mechanic Mike was).  Appreciate your input to help even if have to take to a mechanic.

The flasher is located under the plate below the steering column
That could be your problem ( hopefully ) or you may be having an issue with your turn signal switch which is located in the steering column under the sterring wheel that must be removed to get to it

Bulbs could always be the problem so do not overlook them
Test then first

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back.  It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 4 Comments


Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?
