Question about 1997 Cadillac Catera

Tail lights stay on

I have a 97 Catera and some times when I shut the car off the rear tail lights stay on. I have to restart the car take it out of park and put in back in to shut off the tail lights, sometimes more than once. Any thoughts?

Why causes my park lights to remain on?


This could be caused by a number of things. Does the car have security.? Do the lights go out after a period of time? Some vehicles have a Sensor to turn the lights on and off. Some vehicles are equipped with daytime running lights. I do not think the latter is the problem. It could just be a problem with the light switch. Please comment and let us know if the lights stay or go off after a period of time

I have a 97 nissan pickup and the head lights will not turn on, an the tail lights will not shut off. had to take fuse out to turn off tail lights. turn signal switch??


Yes it sounds like the switch is stuck in the park position.
You could pull the harness plug for the switch and check the circuits with a meter, or replace the switch.

Rear tail and brake lights out 97 Jetta


I believe this car has a bulb with two fillaments for side and brake lights, it is unlikely that they are both burnt out at the same time but possible. It is more likely that the bulb holder or a ground connection is rusted or loose. The fuse generally covers all rear lights.

Gas tank won't open, trunk won't open, radio stopped working, left tail lamp won't work


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

Tail lights stay on


There is a switch that should shut these off when the front door is opened. Have the dealer fix under warranty.

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
