Hello & Welcome to JA,

 

Here is information that should help you.

 

Instrument Panel Upper Trim Pad Replacement (DeVille)

    Caution: This vehicle is equipped with a Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) System. Failure to follow the correct procedure could cause the following conditions:

    Air bag deployment
    Personal injury
    Unnecessary SIR system repairs
    In order to avoid the above conditions, observe the following guidelines:
    Refer to SIR Component Views in order to determine if you are performing service on or near the SIR components or the SIR wiring.
    If you are performing service on or near the SIR components or the SIR wiring, disable the SIR system. Refer to Disabling the SIR System.

     

  1. Disable the SIR system.
  2. Remove the defroster grille.
  3. Remove the windshield garnish moldings. Remove the air outlet deflectors. Object Number: 519693  Size: SH
    Click here for detailed picture of above image.
  4. Close the air outlets (1) in order to prevent the upper trim pad fasteners from falling into the HVAC ducts.

Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.

(IPC) MEANING ?.

 

WHY I HAVE TO RE-PROGRAM ?

Cadillac Mechanic: John, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 years ago

Instrument panel cluster = IPC

 

When an IPC is put into a vehicle it has to be programmed for that exact vehicle.
