Engine Coolant Indicators
Engine Coolant The IPC illuminates the engine coolant indicator and sends a class 2 message in order to activate an audible warning when the following occurs:
?€¢
The IPC determines that the coolant temperature is greater than 128°C (262°F). The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the coolant temperature.


?€¢
The IPC performs the displays test at the start of each ignition cycle. The indicator illuminates for approximately 3 seconds.

The IPC turns OFF the engine coolant indicator when the engine coolant falls below 125°C (257°F
ENGINE OVERHEATED/STOP ENGINE - 42 The IPC illuminates the ENGINE OVERHEATED/STOP ENGINE - 42 indicator in the DIC and sends a class 2 message in order to activate an audible warning when the powertrain control module (PCM) detects that the engine temperature is above the normal operating range. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM requesting illumination.

My Cadillac DeVille 01 is over heating and the motor shuts down why?


It may be in the computer programming for the engine to shut down when it gets too hot. FInd out why it is overheating. Low coolant ( leak )? Thermostat not working properly? Rad fan not coming on? Head gasket failure? To name a few

Have a cadie 01 changed water pump and thurmostat and still over heating and running hot any ideas


Try to flush and fill with new fluid to get the passageways free of sediment.

Or, try to see if the fans are coming on at the right speed at operating temperature. May require new fans/relays/wiring to fix this problem.

I have a 1997 Cadillac Deville that was overheating its Northstar engine and it required service amounting to about $700.00 or so from an auto electric shop, but afterwards it ran cooler.

Good luck on this repair.

How to remove the govenor


If you want to remove the speed governor, your going to need a tech 2 scanner or have the car dyno tuned and fined someone who will do it since it's a liability to who ever alters the speed governor. Good luck and hope this helps.

How many teeth on the governor gear for driving the speedometer in the 2004r trans of an 86 Cadillac fleetwood brougham?


Depends on what gear is in the rear end and what size tire. Do you have old gear? They are color coded and have the teeth number on it. You will have to pull it.

Transmission problem


I had a shifting problem. The car would start in the wrong gear and shift at wrong times. I repaced the governor postion sensor and tranny fluid and the problem has been fixed for several years. Did you replace the tranny fluid?
