We are talking about the 1998 model right?..It does indeed have a coil. I have a 1998 Catera..It is ONE big coil. It sits on top of the engine behind the intake. All plug wires go to this one coil. I just bought one..Be prepared to spend about $350 for the coil!!

Get the side you need...1-3-5 or 2-4-6. They are bolted on top of the engine over the spark plugs. The right side (as viewed from the front) coil pack requires moving some other parts to get to it.

It doesn't have a coil. It has a bank of 3 coils with direct contact to the plugs.
Remove the cover on each side which is on top of the valve covers. This will expose the coil packs.

My radio in my 1998 Cadillac Catera works right now only in accessory, the fuse is fine too so I'm wondering if it couldnt be a relay. If so which one?


Most likely not the relay but the ignition switch. With car running, slightly wiggle the ignition key or turn in direction like starting but only a little not enough to engage starter again. Watch the radio for operation/lights on face. If you notice that it momemtarily works then stops when key is released the electrical part of the ignition switch is worn.

It's an easy fix. Remove the covers over the valve covers and you will see the coil packs (1 pacck of 3 over each head).
They mauy be pricey from the dealer. Try ebay.
