2007 CADILLAC SRX

The engine light came on> OnStar says its an O2 sensor. Took it in and svc mgr says there is some preventative maintenance that he could perform: Fuel System Service and Engine Induction Service. Do you think this a worth while service?

Recently had the same problem my friend......The O2 Sensor can simply mean that your gas cap is not on tight enough, or possibly your purge solenoid.
I am just a regular average guy, and I am retarded when it comes to cars, so I asked a mechanic on ask.com cadillac, or something like that...anyways......The purge Solenoid only costs about 35 dollars, and is super easy to replace. The hard part is getting your card started again after your battery is hooked back up because of the Cadillac theft detterant system. After you put the Purge Solenoid in, and hook up your battery make sure you do the following to bypass the security system:
1. Turn key in ignition all most all the way on, but don't turnover.
2. Leave in this position for 10 min exactly
3. Turn key back for five seconds
4. Repeat this sequence four addtional times.
5. On the fourth time the car will turnover, and you are good to go.

I hope this helps, cause cadillac almost bent me over on this one....

My 2008 cadillac srx engine light came on and engine power reduce took it to the dealer so they changed the crank shaft sensor but its still not working, can you please help me


if they didn't read the fault codes before starting work, they are repairing by replacement and that is not good
if a sensor is faulty and it could be a cam shaft sensor as well as a crankshaft sensor , normally it misfires or stops altogether
the ECM is in limp mode and that reduced the engine power and if there was a sensor problem it would not just reduce power and put the light on but would show up in a define manner
engine lights also come on it there is a transmission problem and that will also initiate the limp mode
have the fault codes read to determine the faulty part/ sensor

How do i turn on the fog lights on 2007 srx?


good afternoon Anonymous.

The manual for this model can be found here:
https://www.cadillac.com/content/dam/Cadillac/Global/master/nscwebsite/en/home/Owners/Manuals_and_Videos/01_images/2007_cadillac_srx_owners.pdf on the Cadillac website. There is mention on manual page 181 of turning the fog lamps on and off with the Fog Lamp Band. If you look on page 167, it ties an illustration to Fog Lamps, showing you where the band is on the Turn Signal Lever.

Hoping this answers your question!

Where is bank 2 sensor one on a 2004 cadillac SRX


Two sensors per bank are used, one before the catalyst and one after. This is done for a catalyst efficiency monitor that is a part of the diagnostic system of the engine controls. The one before the catalyst measures the exhaust emissions right out of the engine, and sends the signal to the ECM about the state of the mixture as previously talked about. The second sensor reports the difference in the emissions after the exhaust gases have gone through the catalyst. This sensor reports to the ECM the amount of emissions reduction the catalyst is performing.

Generally, O2 sensor is on driver side 2nd one back...

2004 SRX Sputters, looses power, and stalls, on occasion


You would be better off going to a Cadillac Dealership and paying the diagnostic fee. Spend $65 to find out what the real problem is rather than replacing parts until the car runs properly. This way you get it from a Cadillac Technician. Once you know what the problem is you can decide on where you want to have it service. Because you are paying for the diagnostics you shouldn't feel obligated to have it done at a Dealership. Please leave me good feedback if you feel this has helped.
