Default Allante diagnostic Book

Posted this yonder 'cause I was amazed with the prices on ebay for this little 16 page booklet. One guy paid $82. I bought 25 so members can get one reasonable.

Sent Xxxx Xxxxxx his and if anybody else is interested just send me a address and $4.00 check( 456 Greenmont Dr Canfield, Ohio 44406). I have four left and will order 20 more just for foolishness. Will throw the money and books in a drawer and hope that no member ever pays a ridiculous price for one of these! One's I ordered cover '87 to '92 even though it says 'til '93 on the cover! Print is small guys!

Bill,

nice service you are providing.
I seem to remember putting one inside my Owner's Manual, but I better double chek.
I havent opened that manual, zip-locked and kept next to the spare, since the Factory Manuals arrived.
I would have to empty the trunk .. to lift the cover .. ...

thanks

The trunks in these things are huge for a convertible...

I first thought that it was so you could get 2 sets of clubs, and some suitcases too...

But, after spending too much time in the trunk I discovered something else...

It is a Caddy - who buys Caddy's - the mob - and why does the mob need big trunks? They need enough space so they can dispose of Vinny...

You can easily fit a body in there - I know - I fit with lots of extra room- maybe enough room for me and Vinny...

did you ever think why it is sooooooooo plush back there?

you can even close the lid and drop the wall and now you are just like the sleeping berths
in a 18-wheeler ..

you just gotta rent the movie, "Terminal Velocity" .. gotta ...

When you open it, it gives you the error codes:

https://www.cadillacforum.com/m_11904/tm.htm

PLUS

it gives you DIAGNOSTIC TREES ..

The booklet comes is small and you can slip into your Owner's Manual.

a MUST item to have.

It does NOT include the sequence on RESET THE CODES .. for that, go to the link above.

Yes, I know it is years later, but per chance would the Vehicle Diagnostics System booklet still be available?

Dave

Good question, yeh it was a couple of years since I last ordered. Found two after searching after your question. Send $5 if interested ---address should be in the thread somewhere. You can still get these I believe from Helm.com -- 5 for ????? cheap plus shipping.

Can order more than 1 lot before shipping increases. Seems almost silly now but I guess I just got ticked when one member paid $82 on sleazebay for somrthing that was 'bout 4-5 dollars.

I sent out about 50 before it seemed like interest ended.

Bill,

Found the address. Hold one of them for me! The payment/address is on the way.

Glad I asked as I do see the booklet on ebay for $20. Thanks!

If Bill runs out, I also have a few of those diagnostic booklets.

When I got the 2nd Allante, I decided that I should have one in each car and one at home by the computer, so I ordered a pack.

You will also order an FSM, right? after the registration & the diag booklet, that FSM will be the most valuable item you get.
BTW, the contents of the booklet can also be found in the FSM and scans are also posted somewhere in this site.

in the mean time, these are the codes:
