    What is wrong with the light? It stays on for a few minutes after the car shuts off and comes on at the start of the car. If these are you issues, then your car is ok.

The solution is usually either a leaking rear air shock or a faulty ride control module.

My '99 catera speedometer doesnt work and the


You need to replace the traction control module located on the ABS pump. There are places in the US where they will rebuild it for you with warranty for about $150.
Its tricky to get off (you need to remove the rad hose between the battery and the pump to get to it, but don't disconnect the ABS module, just the TC module mounted at end of the ABS unit (has a bunch of brake lines coming out if it).

The power steering is variable assist, relative to the speed of the vehicle, so if the speedo doesn't work, then the PS won't and you should have TC and ABS lights on. The electrical connectors to the module are tricky to remove. don't force them. One connector has a sliding lock bar.

Most likely a leak on one of the air shocks or a faulty control module. Replacement air shocks are available through Monroe, part number MA825.

Leveling light


Check for possible fuse blown, and check manual for any explanation of what flashing may mean. Other than that, it could be anything from one of the leveling sensors acting up, to a small leak, or faulty pump. If you think of it, try going to car wash & spray good behind each wheel as far as you can reach with wand, just in case it's something simple like debris caught or wedged in near sensors, or links. Give it a day or 2 and see if it goes out if not, you may have to get it on a hoist, and have all the links & sensors checked for proper movement.

Leveling light comes on and blinks


The leveling light is when the catera is trying to adjust it's back end based on weight, so whenever the light comes on you need to park your car and wait until it turns off. If it begins to blink do the same thing. If it doesn't go off in 5 min then go get it checked out by a mechanic, because something could be broken. It is in the manual if this does not make sense.

97 catera leveling light flashes all the time


The problem is a leaking air shock(s). My 1997 catera had this problem also. I drove the rear wheels up on a set of ramps and went underneath. There is a sensor located close to the rear axle's that moves up when the car is loaded in the rear. (luggage/person in the back seat). When the car senses the extra weight, a small compressor located up under the hood pumps air to the air shocks until the car is back level again. With the key turned on, and the engine off, You can actually move this sensor with your hand and after about 45 seconds, you will hear the small electric compressor come on and see the rear of the car rise. Even if the shock is leaking, the car will still rise but you can hear/feel the air leak on the rubber boot of the shock. The reason the light never stops flashing is because of the air leak the car never really reaches proper leveling. I know what your thinking, "I didn't have extra weight in the car"..doesn't matter car still levels itself from time to time without extra load in the rear. Possible road conditions etc. and also the fact your basically riding around with only one rear shock working like it should. hope this helps......dave
