#487 of 1436 Catera Interior lights always on Problem
Jan 27, 2008 (7:03 pm)
I finally found a low mileage 1999 Catera to purchase that I adore. My problem is the interior lights have started staying on. Any experience out there what would case the interior lights to stay on while the car is running and after the engine is shut off? Luckily the power down feature still works because if you come back later everything is off and so far it is not draining the battery… When I read the Cadillac Catera Maintenance & Repair postings it looks like my recent problem is a prelude of what is to come!

I have a 98 catera, Besides not having any hot air for heat in winter Or a/c in summer No one could ever figure out an answer for that one. Now the only way to keep it running is to keep my foot on the gas. If you come to a stop light & let off the gas It dies. Turn the key & it will start right up put you have to keep your foot on the pedal. Any ideas

as far as the Air unit goes, my unit died (98) air, heat, defogger all of it, it was a simple fuse. I hit a bump and loosed up the whole thing. I called everyone and their answers were all about $$$$$$$. Some nice man offered to look at the fuses and viola i had air... have you checked your fuses? As far as the car running , I wish I could help. I do love my car and it is still a Cadi....

The overheating could be related to low antifreeze or coolant, but is related to the oil pressure. My catera goes hot when the oil pressure is low. I don't want to say what the problem might be, but it could be bad. Check the coolant level and the coolant cap.
As for the 3rd gear, I am experiencing the same problem and am working with my mechanic to identify the issue. So far new transmission oil and filter have not corrected the issue. Maybe the transmission codes in the trany controller can identify the issue.

the trans lock light is associated with the trany being stuck in third gear. quick remedy, but not a fix is shut off the ignition and restart the car. once the car is warm the problem goes away
