You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

SOURCE: how to remove head light in 2006 dts cadillac

ok, In this New of a vehicle there are no screws holding the headlight in if you just need to replace a headlight because it is burned out. Look at the back of the light where the wires attach and you should see the wires going into what appears to be a coupling. Get a hold of that and turn. After it unlocks you can remove and replace the bulb. If you are replacing the Headlight assembly because it was damaged there are typically 2 long scews on the top front that appear to be adjsutment screws and 2 smaller ones in each side, again on top. Good Luck

Have you changed the bulb on that side of the car? If a bulb is broken or burnt out it will not light up.

SOURCE: how do you change the headlight bulbs on a 2006

you should have to go thru under the hood to the backside of the lamp assembly. There should be either a hard plastic cap or a plastic dust cover that has the wires going thru it to the lights. If it is the hard cover (looks like a jar cap) turn it 1/4 turn counterclockwise and pull it out of the way. Take the bulb/socket out. Unclip the old one- Put the new one in. (DO NOT TOUCH THE GALSS PART OF NEW BULB). Then re-assemble

Why does my ABS light stays on and sometimes i get a vibration in the brake petal causing my 2002 Cadillac escalade not wanting to stop?

Sounds like a fault with the Antilock Braking System. The vibration in the pedal is the ABS working. With your foot on the brake pedal, it releases and re-applies the brakes to stop a skid from the wheels locking up. You need professional service for brakes.

Seems to be a known issue on all Cadillac and requires the ABS module to be replaced.
