Hi, it seems like a malfunction in the main board of your controls, you will have to get it repaired, try disconnecting the battery for 30mins.

A loose wire or fuse. You probably have a wire that has worn away and it is either coming into contact and grounding itself but most likely you have a frayed wire that is connecting with itself at various times. You need to get a voltmeter and trace the wires from the radio back to the battery to find where you are loosing voltage if you have no voltage at the radio. (Make sure you have the ignition on when doing this). The other possibility is that a ground wire has become loose and occasionally regrounds itself. This isn't going to be easy but it is relatively simple. Wires are color coded to make it easier. Let me know if you have any further questions.

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.

My radio, trunk and fuel door all work sometimes. Where is the Multifunction relay? I believe the part# 90494163 It is a 2000 Catera Cadillac. Thanks


K134 Multifunction relay is under the dash on the driver side. When sitting in driver seat, above your left ankle, it is located behind a cardboard panel. Replacing cures many problems with the Bose radio, sunroof, gas and trunk releases, fog lights.

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.
