    Cadillac XLR

    2004 Lt. Platinum & 2006 Lt. Platinum XLR-V

    Default Alternate Wild to Mild switch

    I haven't been on this site since I sold my 06-V & would like to give you folks my wild to mild done in 2006 and still worked fine when sold. I did this in 2006 before wild to mild came out. Not a crawl under car type of thing. I will post pics here as to how to do it, all it requires is a $10 rocker switch, wire, and a couple hours work. the controller is under the trunk floor on the left side, remove cover and you will see the unit. Cut red wire, extend both ends up to center console, remove inner console and take out the part you are going to cut a hole in and BE SURE TO MAKE THE HOLE WHERE IT WON'T INTERFERE WITH ANY ITEMS WHEN YOU PUT IT BACK IN. Wild to Mild the old fashion way. Good Luck

So, you say you wired a switch to these? Can you explain that a little better please as I'd like to do the same. What component did you wire to, is there a solenoid or two that sends the vacuum signal? Thanks for any tips - Raz

    Ok - I did some digging around under the car and found the "solenoid relay switch" that sends the vacuum to the flap valves, it's located on the far back edge passenger side under the storage tray. If there was a hole in the storage tray you could reach it, but there is not so getting to the tight spot underneath may prove a challenge if necessary. It consists of a large clip over the relay, a wiring connector, plus a few rubber lines holding it in place. I did order the Corvette exhaust control module and will see if that fixes it. (If it does I'll post the part #) later - Raz

    Default Corvette exhaust module

    Well, the Corvette module is physically identical to the XLRV module and seems to work the same as I can hear it's switch cycle when power is applied. However it did not solve my issue so next is the vacuum solenoid switch on the passenger underside which I do not believe is opening to cycle the valves. I'll report back once I've checked out the relay switch.
