Question about 1998 Cadillac Catera

1 Answer

Cadillac catera wiring harness is not right.

The harness to hook up a radio is different than the new adapter is set up. The second pin is open on the car's connector and the third holds two wires. The adapter does not.

My rear tail lights remain on any time I turn on the headlights so I ultimately have no break lights at night. This is accompanied by my cruise not working so it leads me to believe the problem is more on the break lights end. Any thoughts?

Put new radio in now battery keeps draining whats wrong?


The new radio has been wired incorrectly. Pull it back out, and check that your radio wiring harness is hooked up correctly with the car's radio wiring harness.

This will depend on whether it's a Bose system, or not.
Non-Bose AC/Delco radioFront Speakers are:L. (-) Light GrayL. (+) TanR. (-) Lt. GreenR. (+) Dk. Green
Rear:L. (-)YellowL. (+)BrownR. (-)Lt. BlueR. (+)Dk. Blue
Be sure to test the connections, as you will notice that there are 2 Yellow wires, 2 Brown wires and 2 grey wires behind the factory radio.

GM pairs all the speakers into separate 4-pin plugs for front and rear. If the factory harness is intact, I'd suggest just getting wire harness adapter from any of your local car audio shops, you'll also need a GM mini antenna adapter, if you are hooking up a new stereo.

Car: 2000 Cadillac Catera Radio: Bose Info: Power goes off to radio, fuel door and trunk release. Seems to happen randomly. Any thoughts?


K134 Multifunction relay is on the driver side, inside the dash above the driver's left ankle (area). (2) panels need to be removed below the steering column to access this area. The first is a panel that matches your dash. The second is a cardboard panel with foam padding on it that encompasses the arms holding the brake pedal and accelerator. You'll then need to lay on your back on the floor board, head in first. Look for a gray box about 3" square by 1 1/2" thick. Push it 'up' off of it's mounting bracket to release. Unplug the wiring harness. Plug in new relay and re-mount.

I have a 1996 Dodge Intrepid. I just installed a radio in the car using the Wal-Mart wiring harness, but when I turn on the radio, I have to turn it all the way up to hear the music, and its all treble....


that aftermarket radio may require different ohm speakers than whats in the car. open trunk and look at speaker magnets they will have the ohms printed on them if they dont say 4 or 8 ohms then they are incompatable with your stereo and may damage it if ohms are lower than 4 ohms. also make sure your radio balnce tone fader settings are correct. some of these new radios are so comlicated with that stuff it requires a 100 page book just to operate it.

I have a 2000 cadillac catera my radio, maplight, high beam light, heated seats, and onstar does not work when I start the engine. when I turn it off they work until I open the door. PLEASE HELP


Did you recently have a loss of power to the car? change the battery? if so, you need to reset your system. My husband and I just figured this out this weekend. His sunroof hasn't worked in two years and it turns out you have to reset all the power options in the car. Google 2000 cadillac catera %calibrate ETC% loss of power, you'll find the step by step instructions for recalibrating the car's computer and resetting the power options

Radio wont work


wfdyer,

go buy a new radio. You can usually get free installation. If you are a do it yourselfer. Then go to crutchfields web site. They are great, they give you the adaptor plates and wire harness to go from what ever radio you get to the car, with no splicing (cutting and reconnecting of wires) They will tell you what radios will not work and tell you what ones will.

Sorry to say it but you have power to the radio, and there are really 3 things a radio needs to work. power, speakers, and a signal. you can check the antena to make sure its not broken or disconnected. but most of the times its the radio

Installing new radio


Factory in-dash wire harness that

Note:
using an optional snap on wire harness adapter will simplify the wiring. Most snap on
wire harness adapters have already converted and color coded the wires from the auto
makers in dash wire harness to match typical aftermarket radio wire colors.
** The wire colors listed in the chart above are typical for these vehicles during these years
but may not be the exact colors for this vehicle. This is another reason to use a snap on
wire harness adapter. **
