SOURCE: Replacing front turn signal bulb on 2006 Cadillac SRX

wow i feel sorry for you because Cadillac designed this bulb to be a don't get to bulb but OK here's what you do take the bottom cover off or skid plastic panel under neath the front end theirs little plastic clips holding it on just get come dikes and don't cut them but just use it to help pull them out. after you get that off use a flash light and locate your light housing you should see two screws holding the house in i think those screws are 8mm i cant remember remove those two screws and be careful the metal from the bumper cuts you pull the light housing out and remove all the screws around the housing and open the housing up replace the bulb and make sure your contact to the bulbs clean and then reassemble the way you took apart. if you cant get it well then best bet is take it somewhere i know Cadillac charges an arm and a leg so you can go somewhere else.

SOURCE: SES light then Reduced engine power light, loss of engine power

Hi It me Mohammad Siddiq my dear. First of all it will be wise of use to take your vehicle to a dealership or any other fully equipped w/shop. They can better tell you what the fault your vehicle has. But at the same time if your friend has the same model vehicle so you can exchange some parts with that vegicle, e.g., Mass Air Flow or TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) and can check your vehicle. These parts do not need to be programmed with scan tool. Just Simply replace these parts and switch on the ignition and wait for 01 minute, then switch off for 30 seconds and then start the engine. Now road test your vehicle, if no SES light or reduced power then there was fault with the part/s replaced. So Return those parts and now you must replace these parts with new or used ones. Anything else I may be contacted on my yahoo id siddiq_pathan@yahoo.com. Thanks. I am an auto technician and working in a GM dealership in Saudi Arabia. I am from Pakistan.

SOURCE: Changing fuel filter on 2004 Cadillac SRX

If you go to the auto parts store they should have a fuel line disconnect tool that has a 5/16ths end an a 3/8ths end. The tool is shaped like an X. Before you start you need to pull the fuel pump fuse under the front of the REAR passenger side seat while the car is running and let it stall. it will release the built up pressure. This is important unless you want gas to spray every where. Then take the tool and start with the end of the filter with two lines. Place the appropriate end of the tool over the smallest inlet, push the tool in then pull the line towards the filter and then push the line away and it should disconnect. Do the same with line above. Then you can use the two appropriate size wrenches to disconnect the outlet end. reconnecting the new filter is simple just make sure your quick connect lines click in all the way and you tighten the outlet line well, I think its like 22 or 25 ft/lbs.

SOURCE: What does reduced engine power light mean

this model has what they call fly by wire.. no accelerator cable. If the computer detects a problem in the thottle system it will not allow the engine to accelerate and will show reduced power and possibly set a check engine light. The dealer usually wants to replace the throttle assembly which is very expensive and usually un nessesary.
I have had a lot of succes with just cleaning the throttle plates real good.

Why is there water in my head lights in my Cadillac 2010 srx


Water buildup can be due to humidity and condensation. This is a common problem on the Cadillac SRX 2010-2011(at least). The replacement can cost about $1,500 USD through a dealership.

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

Engine power reduced (came on) 2008 srx wad model


My 2008 SRX also had this problem, at first I would turn the engine off and that would fix the problem, but then both the check engine light and the reduce engine power light would come right back on. I brought it to my local mechanic and the code that came up was for the timing chain or the crank shaft. They checked with cadillac and they had problems with timing chain so that was replaced. It was fine for a few days and is now doing the same exact thing. Can anyone help?

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.

First determine where coolant loss comes from. I would not continue driving, till that step is isolated, or further damage will be done
