1995 fleetwood:

-shorting the reprogramming wire hanging in the trunk does not cycle the locks (2 pin male connector). key fob does not work (has new battery) obviously. car had been sitting for a few years before i bought it back. i thought i might have to reprogram the fob so when i shorted the wire to put it into programming mode, the locks did not cycle.

-Horn does not work

-trunk pull down does not engage, checked and it's getting power

fuses for all 3 of these problems are good.

does anything jump at you guys that might be a main problem causing all 3? or do i have 3 separate issues that need to be hunted down?

Thanks.

I read that thread too. Gonna check the black box they're referring to since everything else is working fine. Locks, seats, trunk popper etc etc. thanks.

Pulled the CCM codes:

44
131
144

44 is steering wheel sensor shorted which might explain the horn.

Don't know what the other 2 are.

I'm not SURE, but I read somewhere that the 1 in front of the "31" or "44" means the the code has occurred before. This would apply to any code. So 117 would mean that you had a prior code 17 still in the computer.

So you would have had 44 twice, and 31 once. Not sure if this is correct, but I read it somewhere...

It would make sense since all the codes only go up to 99, and start at 11. Two digits only...

I listed the PCM codes and not the CCM codes, but I think the above would still apply.

My Roadmaster doesn't. It's been so long since I drove the Impala I can't remember...

I wish I had the D body FSM. My B body FSM doesn't cover any of this. Don't even know where to start.

Fred those are PCM codes. any chance you got the CCM codes? Cadillac specific.

in any case code 44 has to do with variable assist, doubt it's my issue.

I just know there's a ground wire somewhere either stripped or not connected screwing up a bunch of circuits lol.

I suck at electrical stuff. might have to bite the bullet and pay someone to figure all this out.

I would run the codes again just to be sure you have all of them, then delete them.

My guess is the only one that comes back is 44.

The code 31, pass key fault, "circuit open or shorted to ground, could be suspect", but if it doesn't come back then that would be a mystery.

Regarding the horn, I can't think of any scenario where it would be disabled other than a direct wiring problem.

You said there's power to it. All the time, or only with the horn button pressed?

I would get someone in your car to push the button, and have a multimeter on it. You might even jump the horn from the battery and see if it works.

The horn has a relay in the convenience center. It is usually the horn buttons, although it could be the slip ring in the column. You can listen for the relay to click.

OK :

Keyless entry issue solved. Receiver module was the culprit.

Horn issue solved, sort of lol. Took apart the the airbag and as soon as so I loosened the bottom right bolt the horn started blowing. Mind you this is at 3 AM in my garage lol.

Only thing is, of the 4 contact points/horn swithces, only bottom right blows the horn. Gotta check again to see if the other 3 are making contact.

Trunk pull down issue remains. Will get to that this week.
