#129 of 153 Re: Question About The Oil Change % On The Monitor? [darv904]
Jun 14, 2011 (1:46 pm)
That should simply mean that the dealer, or other shop, where you had the oil changed did not go into the digital information center in the center stack of your dash and change the oil % number.
This has to be done manually in the onboard computer (it does not happen automatically just by virtue of changing the oil in the engine). Cadillac dealer service departments are of course trained to do this.
In your owner's manual it provided instructions on how to do this. You should be able to do it yourself with the owner's manual instructions and pushing a few buttons.

Have you figured out how to reset the Oil Life Monitoring System? Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Since it says that, I would definitely recommend checking and adding fluids. I would also recommend having the vehicle checked out by a dealer. Please keep me updated on your concerns.

Obviously this is a very old post but I would like to know if you found the problem in the door. I am experiencing the same rattle when closing my driver's door.

The third dealership I took it to with this issue, Moore Cadillac in Chantilly, VA, diagnosed the cause which -- if I remember correctly because it's been over a year now -- was from a rain water drain piece inside the door (at least that's what I was told). They shored it all up by installing some foam rubber material to stop/absorb the rattle/vibration. It has been fine since.
#135 of 153 numerous issues with 05 cts
Sep 08, 2011 (7:46 pm)
I bought my 05 CTS exactly 4 years ago and have had numerous problems ever since. Where do I start!!!! Serious trunk water leak when it rained. Brake light continually going out. Uses a quart of oil about every 600 miles ( Dealer said this was an acceptable range with Cadillac. YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING!!!!) First time I checked my oil after my initial change it had about a quart left in it. I now keep oil in my trunk and check often. Often when I turn in to a parking space moving slowly the brakes fail. The Dealership could not find the problem but said it might be a wheel sensor. I've had the EBCM replaced twice and this hasn't completely solved the problem (EXPENSIVE REPAIR). It is still doing the same thing but less often. The rear wheel bearings had to be replaced recently because the sound in the back seat was getting unbearable. Now we are having problems with the power windows not wanting to go back up after leaving them partially down in hot weather. I personally think that GM should OWN UP to these problems and work with the consumers that keeps them afloat. Just look at all the posts of people that have the same problems with these vehicles. I personally will not buy another CTS. I owned a 1991 Caddy for years and had very few problems and never used a drop of oil between oil changes. I thought when I bought this one I'd have the same results.
Thanks for reading my gripes.

Feb 07, 2012 (4:59 pm)
I have had it to the repair shop 4 times, I have a whining noise, first they could not hear it, took it home still have it, Took it back then they said it was the Idaler pulley, changed that. Still whining, took it to a transmission wondereing wether to keep it or get rid of it. Not the transmission but I had a crack in my drive shaft. Replaced that. Still noise, (runs great though) Noticed a leak on garage floor, my rack and pinion need replaced, still a low whining noise, any thoughts. $2400. later!!!!!!
#138 of 153 Re: 08 Cadillac CTS AWD "clunk" [rdinssatx]
Feb 08, 2012 (10:38 am)
I noticed this question/problem is about a year old. I purchased a 2008 CTS rear wheel drive in August of 2011 and I have the same annoying problem. There is a thump/clunk sound at usually 2 distinct times. It's when slowing down to a stop, once at 15mph and the loudest at 5mph or less right before coming to complete stop. I've had it at the dealership twice and they have yet to fix the problem. They replaced the deferential box on the second visit, but did nothing to alleviate problem. My cts now has 32,000 miles and the warranty runs out in April. Did you ever figure out the problem and had it fixed? Thanks for your insight/help.
