Cadillac Catera, Sedan
Jan 29, 2008 (4:24 pm)
my son's first car is a 2000 used cadillac catera. we've had it for almost a year, march. since the week after we left the dealer, it has been nothing but problems--engine lite on--coils replaced repeatedly, radiator, steering problems. we have spent about $1400 and nothing is fixed. does anybody know how to fix them or where to go to get them fixed. i'm sick over this. what's going to be next. please reply if you have any suggestions.

I just picked up a 97 with 85,000 miles. I can't get the interior lights to come on. They worked the first day but now nothing. Any solutions? I don't have the owners manual.

I would first check the fuse if thats ok check swich at the door jam you might have too remove the panel on the middle pilar then check for broken wire or disconnect plugs

actually it's not fill there the pressure lines to the trans cooler are tap and is filter and refilled that way and if you try to do it that way the toruqe converterwill not get the proper amount and the trans will start sliping and you will get high revs and brun more gas and brun the trans

The plug in is still in the trunk for that CD holder, It along with the rear window shade are opitions. So you can still buy them because its was also used on other GM products. My 2002 Camaro has the same CD holder as my 2001 Catera.

That sounds like the dealer doesn't know how to fix them and your paying for their training. Are you any where near Dallas?
