SDD Message


Procedure To Turn Off SDD Error Message



If you wish to deactivate the Service SDD (Speed Dependent Damping) message on the Driver Information Center (DIC) message window, you can do it yourself by using the following procedure.


Four buttons on the AC control are used:

LO (fan speed) = No or skip or increment down

HI (fan speed) = Yes or select or increment up

COOLER = (Blue Button) = decrease by one for each time pressed

WARMER (Red Button) = increase by one for each time pressed


Ignition turned on, car running or not (it does not matter), press and hold the OFF and WARMER buttons on the DIC until the display changes. This is the beginning of the diagnostics mode. After the display changes, release these two buttons. Any stored trouble codes will be listed, and can be copied for future analysis. The automatic function will end at "ECM?".


At that point, press and release the LO button to skip.

At "BCM ?", press HI to select the BCM segment.

At "BCM DATA ?", press LO to skip.

At "BCM INPUTS ?", press LO to skip.

At "BCM OUTPUTS ?", press LO to skip.

At "BCM OVERRIDES?", press HI toi select.

At "BSO No Overrides", you will need to press the HI button until you reach "BSO8 . Note down the current value (probably 3) in case you want to restore it later.

If you have a 1993 Allanté', this value will be 11.

Normally the new stored value should be "1" on 1989 through 1992 Allantés, and "9" on 1993 Allantés.

Press COOLER button until the number on the right is reduced by 2.

Press and hold ELAP TIME and FUEL USED buttons for at least 3 seconds to save the new value in the EEPROM. The display will flash momentarily and then display the newly stored number. Press RESET to exit diagnostics or shut off the ignition.

                                                    Mission Statement

Here at the Cadillac Allante XLR Club, I am anxious to assist you in achieving your goal in helping you enjoy your car with confidence, knowing that the collective knowledge and experience of your fellow members is at your disposal. I love talking, emailing and greeting members because it allows me the opportunity to describe the CAC’s philosophy.

Our years of success are due to helping our members meet all their needs. At the CAC, I give 110% to all your Allanté XLR needs. Anything less is not good enough. Not only are we a National Club, but I have an Allanté-only repair shop located in NJ. It’s also the club house. Feel free to visit anytime.

By being a member, this means that on every call or email, I will give you more than you expect and pay for. Also for those of you that can’t get to the Allanté repair shop, I can also be an angel on your local mechanic’s shoulder by providing them with added advice so he can get your Allanté ready faster.

By consistently going the extra mile, I have created many successful friendships that make me keep on doing what I do. In this same manner, I hope to earn your confidence and friendship.

Now that our shared semi-exotic indulgence is at its historical status, it is in our combined best interest to support the Allanté community. 

I look forward to personally meeting you at one of the Allanté XLR events.
Sincerely, Johnny Monzo...........Remember, you have me at your disposal 24/7.

   Well I have been told you missed a great show. The 17th national Allanté event is now history but we have some good memories from it. Later, I will post the itinerary and the winners from it so you can see what you missed.

   Now if you don’t want to miss another one, on the weekend of October 12th, the Camden county board will be holding their Italian American Festival and Car show. Located in Pennsauken Nj.  They called me and want to make the Cadillac Allanté the featured marquee. They are trying to make this a big event. They want to host an all Italian and America car show with us in the middle. I on the other hand will try to make this a weekend event with something to do on Friday and Friday night. Saturday will be car show day with a dinner at the world-famous PUB restaurant back when the Cadillac LaSalle club held their national in Cherry Hill, I took quite a few people to this restaurant and today, there still talking about it.

  If you care to make it a longer event, Atlantic city is only 50 minutes away. Philadelphia is only 12 minutes away. There is so much to do. If you are coming from a distance, and want to see or do something, let me know. Well fit it in.

So please let me know if you would like to join us at this event. Let’s bring awareness to our automobile. There should be no reason that every Allanté in about 100-mile radius should not be there.

   When getting back, let me know if you like to come down for the weekend. Friday, if you like, you can visit the Allanté repair shop where you can view over 30 Allanté in various stages.  We can do Pat’s or Geno’s steaks (WIZ WIT) that is a Steak with cheese wiz and fried onions. The Best. Or I can take you to one of the best sandwich shops around called (DiNicks) I can set up the same hotel that they CLC got. The Crowne Plaza which is right across the street to where this event is going to be.

Please get back with yes or no.  call me for more details 609-634-6518   Johnny

Remember, every day that passes, is one less Allanté Day
