#257 of 301 Escalade Meltdown
Jan 25, 2011 (3:45 pm)
Hello everyone. I am the owner of an 08 Escalde ESV. Previous to that, I was the owner of a 07 Escalade. Also an ESV might I add. In both vehicles, I've noticed when the side mirrors are folded in, I get a melt mark on the black plastic piece that's holding the mirror up against the vehicle. It's the piece that is right next to the window itself. The longer the sun hits it, the wider the melt spot gets. Anyone else experienced this problem? Thanks

Hello to all. I've had an 07 Escalade ESV and currently have an 08 ESV. In both cases, I have had the same problem. When it's sunny and the side mirrors are folded in, I get a melt spot on the black plastic molding that is right next to the front windows. It seems that sun is reflecting off of the side mirror when folded and magnifies then beams on the molding causing it to melt. The longer the sun hits it, the bigger the melt spot gets.This is both a defect and definitely a safety issue. I would like to know if anyone else besides me have experienced that problem? Thank You
#259 of 301 2004 Escalade Rear Wiper Not Working.

When I turn the switch I can hear the wiper click once, but will not work. The washer fluid still works in the back. Anyone have any suggestions or estimate to repair?

I had a 2003 Escalade and purchased new, did better than regular maintenence. The front differential noise kept getting louder, so I took it to the dealer under warranty. They said the noise was normal, so after 58K I SOLD IT AND BOUGHT A TOYOTA.

I have an 02 EXT and I'm having a problem with my front end shaking with I turn sharp to the left. It feels as if though the wheel is slipping. I've had this problem before back in 07 and had it fixed but lost the paperwork so I forgot what they fixed. Would anyone know anything about this? I'm hoping to narrow the problem down so I can possibly buy the parts and fix myself.

O2 sensors are pretty easy to replace. The diagnostic meter sends an electrical pulse to each sensor to see if each one is working. It will tell you Right bank one is faulty (or something along those lines) Hope its the second stage (easier to get to) Just go to your local auto parts store and they will give you what you need.

I am having similar problems with my 2003 Escalade. The seat heaters stopped working as well as the clock resets to 12pm everytime we get out of the car. Im worried Im gonna get into some serious problems if I have it looked at. Did you find out anything with yours?

Most of my problems were with my 99. Power windows, power doorlocks, clock, Bose audio, wipers worked intermittently. Needed to replace module contained within the center console. It controls about 10 functions and some would work while others would not. Dealer part only. (Not available as aftermarket). About $300. Twice that if dealer installed.

2002 Escalade service stability system and ABS light came on.....Does anyone have any idea what the cost might be to get this resolved? I have over 200k miles....The ABS still works fine... At this point I am not sure what options I have.
Thanks in advance for your help
#266 of 301 09 Escalade Problems
Jul 14, 2011 (5:23 am)
I bought an 09 Escalade brand new a couple years ago. Currently has ~28000 miles. So far I have had both front shock sensors go bad which took about 5 trips to the shop for them to figure out what was wrong - kept getting the "service suspension system" warning; there was a problem with the steering column that required a $1300 trip to the shop (under warranty); and now it is in the shop for not starting. The battery is good. Some service bulletin about the starter turning on the rear seat heaters and it interupting the starter (or else leaves the rear seat heaters on- that's what they told me anyway). They installed a software patch and called me to come get it. Got to the shop and it wouldn't start again. Left it there and they called a couple days later saying the starter was bad. They replaced it and called me to come get it. It didn't start again when I showed up (This time the Cadillac service guy said he was embarrassed). It is still at the shop now and has been a couple days since I have heard anything. I also have issues every once in a while with the speakers shutting off, the windows auto-up not working, and the side blind zone alert system shutting off all the time. I don't even want it back anymore. Is this normal? Anyone else have all these problems?
