1 week agoI have been having some electrical issues with the 2001 Cadillac DTS that I bought last year. I traced the parasitic drain down to a fuse in the under the hood fuse box. It has another fuse box under the back seat, I checked all of them with a multi meter and found nothing but move on to the under hood fuse box and found the one that was doing the battery drain. It was labeled IGN 1 fuse position 11, when I pulled that fuse the battery drain stopped. I left it out for a few minutes then replaced the fuse and there was not battery drain. I left the car on trickle charge over night and it ran and cranked fine the next day, the last time I cranked it was about 10:30 Tuesday night , weds morning car would not start , battery drained again. Still do not know what the problem is.
Anyway I had been looking for a Cadillac SRX and found a 2006 with only 77,000 miles on it, the guy wanted $8000 for it but I finally got him to take $6500 for it, it belonged to his mother, she died 3 years ago. His wife drove the car the past 3 years, it has been well cared for and has new tires and a new battery. I really like it, it rides and drives like new and looks real nice. Happy so far with it, Wife hit the roof because I bought it, I guess she figures I was spending some of the money that she would get when the divorce goes through. I am going to upload some pics and post them to this thread.
