Do you have a test light you can use to do some testing?

We yes I've done that test it all my fuses unless there's a fuse that I don't know about I've been reading my book and I can't figure it out just wondering if you could help. It's just a 96 Eldorado Cadillac two door
Cadillac Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Cadillac Technician replied 4 months ago

I can help.

The first place I'd look is behind the back seat. There are three relay centers back there, and the headlamp relays are located here. Water intrusion is a problem, especially if you have a sunroof and the drain hose leaks.

Locate these relays, and pull a couple of the relays out and see if there's any green growing on the terminals of the relays, or in the box itself. It should be clean and dry, with no corrosion.

We often would find problems in this area, even when the cars were nearly new, and it's the first place I'd go looking before we get down to actual troubleshooting the circuits.
