Alternator/generator/regulator Problems of Cadillac Deville
Cadillac Deville owners have reported 8 problems linked to alternator/generator/regulator (under the electrical system category).
#1 - Alternator/generator/regulator problem of the 2003 Cadillac Deville
The vehicle was a 2003 Cadillac Deville. VIN of the vehicle was 1G6KD54Y23_. Car purchased 10/16/2003 with 15200 mileage. Left rear door regulator failed. This door could not have been used in 9 years more than 20-25 times. Dealer, royal Cadillac, charged $694. 95 for replacement. I complained to Cadillac, requesting reimbursement, and they refused. Research indicates that door regulator failures on this make and model were well known and published many years ago. Given the little useage of this door (we are senior citizens and rarely have rear seat passenders) I believe this defect to exist at the time of purchase. This issue happened on 08/25/12.

#2 - Alternator/generator/regulator problem of the 2005 Cadillac Deville
The window regulator on the rr window of my 2005 Cadillac Deville is refective. My window is down and won't come back up although the motor power is running to the window the regulator is broken. I have checked the complaints and noted that there are several complaints regarding defective window regulators on this model of Deville which in 2002 through 2005. I called the dealer and they knew exactly what the problem was and said it would cost over $500. 00 to replace. This is only one window. There is the possibility that this could occur three more times. I know several people with this model Deville ( not this year) that have the same problem but can not afford to get the part replaced consequently they are driving around with no window in the back. I feel this is unsafe for children and pets. As well as dangerous for leaving your car out. I would appreciate if you would check into this. I think it has not been addressed because the complaints appear to be unrelated. However taken as a whole for all the years it is significant. I you look at the window regulators you will see the problem. I do not know how to get Cadillac to address this problem. This alternator/generator/regulator problem happened on Tue., Nov. 29, 2011.

Several customer comments to Cadillac customer sevice by other owners of similar model and year have same problems and needed replacements of several regulators.
