There should be a vehicle speed sensor that is tied into your abs and tcs systems. I would recommend getting this changed. Also have your wheel bearings checked.

SOURCE: 2000 catera frequent speedometer not working

Hi, in ure case the abs ecu is obviously a main ecu. it sounds like you have a can communication problem where your system detects hi speed can malfunction, or interferance, measure your end of line resistance=120ohms and network nominal value should be 60ohms voltages between can hi and low should ad up to 5v , or to ground eg. can hi=2.7v then can low should measure 2.3v. if either one of these measurements dont add up you know which cercuit is at fault.

It might even be a vehicle speed /wheelspeed sensor contaminated or damaged component causing system shut down.

SOURCE: my speedometer's not working neither is my cruise control

It's your ETCBM ( Electronic Traction Control Brake Module ). Had the same problem . This will cause your speedometer , ABS brakes and check engine light to come on.You'll even notice your stering is a little stif. I had my mechanic remove it and sent it out to Module Masters for rebuild ( 5 year warranty ) Works like a charm now. Those guys are really great .Cost me with freight $160 plus mechanic to R & R it.
www.modulemasters.com

I found this info online . Most mechanics will say it is a Speed sensor, but after many hours and going that route you'll see what I mean.

PS: You can still drive the car ( carefully ) while you wait for the rebuilt unit to be returned.

SOURCE: 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.

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 ?

My speedometer does not work


the speedometer signal come thru the ABS module. Its possible the sensor itself failed or the ABS module failed. Is the ABS light on.?? If so you will need to retrieve codes to proceed.

My speedometer quit but the odometer still works (1998 F150) can you solve this


Usually it's the opposite. The speedometer works and the odomater and trip meter go inop. Most likely the speedometer assembly is bad. If the odometer is working you have a signal from the gray and black wire .

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...


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.
