Question about 1998 Cadillac Catera

2 Answers

The speedometer and odometer do not work on my 98 cadillac catera. I had the sensor in the transmission changed, but still nothing. I have reason to believe the guy I bought it from turned the odometer back because it says 114,000 but on the title and carfax report, it is consistent with the miles up to 138,000. Could that have something to do with why the speedometer, odometer and dash light does not work? What can I do?

Does the cruise work? Does the ABS/TC light stay on?
If so, its the EBTCM; electronic brake traction control module on the ABS pump.
This will kill the abs, tc, speedo, odometer, cruise and variable assist power steering if you have it.

You can get it rebuilt for 150 with a warranty. A bit of a pain to remove, but I can give you some tips; I've done it to my wifes 01' Catera.

Changing the odometer is as easy as swapping the instrument cluster with a lower mileage vehicle

I have a 2000 Catera that when I changed the electronic brake control module all warning lights went off, speedo and odo worked. New EBCM is $2000 Cdn I got mine used for 170. also it can be re built at modulemasters.com for $160. Not sure about the dash light tho.

Why ford escort wagon 98 odometer not workind, speedometer OK?


If the speedometer works but the odometer does not, the problem is inside the speedometer. Probably a stripped gear.

Why did my speedometer stop working and within minutes my 02 Cadillac Sts stalled and would barely accelerate?


The speedometer and odometer gets a signal from the speed sensor in the side of the transmission where the speedo cable once was.
The problem could be the speed sensor, or something in the wiring, or in the instrument cluster. Or it could be that the transmission is failing internally.

ABS and TC light on. Speedometer and odometer are not working


If the speedo and odometer are not working it could be the speed sensor in the transmission. And the speed sensor could also knock out the ABS and traction control systems.
Have you had the body computer scanned for trouble codes ?

Cadillac catera 01' odometer and trip meter stopped working at exactly 73,200 miles - everything else in the gauge cluster still works.


this sounds like a bad speedometer cluster, you stated everything else works so i assume the speedometer is working and just the odometer and trip stopped working and so the speedometer will need replacing. good day.

2001 cadillac catera ebtcm removal how to


You need to remove the upper rad hose and the battery.
Then, use a torx to remove the 6 screws (hard to get at) which will remove the EBTCM from the brake modulator. You also must disconnect the two electrical connectors (the big one has a slide tab).
There are places you can send the module to and rebuild with warranty. I took a module from a 99' and installed it in my wife's 01'. Now the speedo, odometer, cruise and power steering work perfect and no TCM / ABS light.

Speedometer and odometer


It is the EBTCM. (eletronic brake traction control module ) You can still get them from Cadillac for the small fee of $1300.00. I know I fell out of my chair too... But the good news is, yes the company on ebay can fix it for about $200.00, but you need to pull it, and send it to them. Looking under the hood, it is on the driver side, under every-thing. it is at the point where the radiator hose enters the engine block. It has a lage plug of wires, and some brake lines hooked to it. only pull just the plastic part off and send.. Good luck and i hope this helps everyone...
