I have the same car with the same problems except for the tail light. My radio works when it wants. This morning I went out and my trunk was open and now it will not stay closed. I dont know what to do. I have no idea where to start with fixing the radio. Did you ever find a solution.

It's the body control module. It's located under the dash to the left of the steering column. I had same problem, went to the junk yard and bought one and the problem went away. Dealer wants $600.00-700.00 for the BCM, I paid $30.00

Hey bluemech55,
I replaced the BCM in my wife's 01 Catera and the radio locked itself out. I think you need to program the BCM at the dealer. I put the old one back. The problem is intermittent....

1999 Cadillac carteria body control module location


Body Control Module, located under dashboard,
left side ( driver side), have to un assemble the
fuse cover, then move slightly other kind of carbord
or paper cover , then you can
introduce your hand, through the left side or column
and you will fill a box, some times humidity may affect
and you will have radio goes on and off, trunk will not
open so as the gas fill door will not open at all (if this
happens, you have to enter trunk via the rear seat,
pull the emergency trunk opening , then go to trunk side
open the back right side, and introduce your hand where
the gas fill door lock (solenoid) , and pull the lock slightly
back, this will unlock the door and allow you to fill some
gas,, other wise you have to turn on and off your car
unitl it works ,, This problem I have associated it with
rust formation on terminals and bad car battery , you may
need to replace the battery.

You may have it removed and check by special electronics
shop that may open and clean and re build the contactors, or replace it with the same model, it has to be the same car year, check the model,,

I have a 1999 Catera, and have experimented a lot of things..

Sounds like you have several electrical problems. Go pick up a Haynes manual at AutoZone or one of those stores that cater to home mechanics.

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.

Radio, trunk and gas door do not work


Check all fuses both inside the car and under the hood. Consult the owners manual for the location of the fuse boxes.

Otherwise, have a mechanic troubleshoot the cars electrical system.

2000 catera radio stopped working


HAD the same problem and it turned out to be the battery even though all system (i.e. charging, alternator, etc.) were good. Noticed the voltage meter would dip while driving then show a charge when first starting. Bottom line is battery was not holding the proper charge whiel running due to a short in the battery. New battery seems to have taken care of the problem... oh make sure the terminals are really clean.
