SOURCE: Orange light that comes up in the middle of the dash board.

This warning light indicates a problem with the rear lights (Brake lights, Reverse lights, Number plate light)... Normally it is set off by a bulb that needs to be replaced but it has been documented that using incorrect Watt rated bulbs can also trigger the warning light. It has also been noticed that faulty wiring may trigger the it too.

You would be better off going to a Cadillac Dealership and paying the diagnostic fee. Spend $65 to find out what the real problem is rather than replacing parts until the car runs properly. This way you get it from a Cadillac Technician. Once you know what the problem is you can decide on where you want to have it service. Because you are paying for the diagnostics you shouldn't feel obligated to have it done at a Dealership. Please leave me good feedback if you feel this has helped.

SOURCE: HI, I own a 1997

it sounds like it is either your clutch or the throw out bearing. either way you more than likely need to have to install a complete clutch kit (pressure plate, clutch disc, throw out bearing, and have your flywheel resurfaced.

Motor shuts off when started up,shuts off when driving.


hot engine or cold, or both? 180F+ is hot.
Shuts off, idling or on the fly, say at 30mph right foot down it dies?
just clue here...
engine stalls. is complex. but in the macro its below, using tools finds the reason,, but you never said did it restart easy./??????
1: lost of engine compression hot engine, (or overheated)
2: lost 12vdc electric power at stall (caused it) dash goes dead. ?
3: lost spark, test spark at the failure point. if dead trouble shoot speak.
4 bad fueling, too lean (say the fuel pump dies) or too rich.
too rich causes wet spark plug tips. (lots of causes )
5: stalls due to idle RPM too low, below 800 is too low.
too low idle rpm is caused by many things, but top 2 are.
A: EGR stuck wide open, clean it, as the books shows at 60k miles
B: ISC stuck closed. (same deal clean it)

now repost and say when it stalled,
at a read light or flying up a hill wot, wot= wide open throttle.
and when it dies, is the restart easy or hard.

CAR STARTED TO SHUT OFF WHILE DRIVING I PUT IN NEUTRAL RESTARTED THEN BACK TO DRIVE DID IT 2 SEPARATE TIMES FINALLY WAS DRIVING PARKED AND IT SHUT OFF HASN'T COME BACK ON I HAVE SEVERAL CODES FROM AUTO...


Dieing while driving but restarting right away, no starts from a dead stop. To me this sounds like the anti theft security system shutting you down. These have been known to turn off injectors while driving and starters while stopped. Check and see if a light is illuminated that says SECURITY when it fails to start. Leave the key forward and look for it. If you see that light, then it is 100% the security system. This link has tons of info on symptoms, causes, and some DO IT YOURSELF solutions. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

I have a toyota rav 4 1996 & the engine warning light has just started to come on & the car loses power as soon as the light goes on & then the light will just go off & the car runs normal...


Does it loose power all together as if the engine shuts down or does it go itnto a reduced power state?

Check all of your fluid levels. Keep an eye on all of your other gauges when this happens. Some vehicles will automatically go to a reduced power state to protect itself from damage if overheating etc.

More likely, another simple problem could be a loose connection somewhere. Start by checking your battery terminals, and any connections under the hood that can vibrate loose. Typicallly if a problem just "goes away" suddenly. It is an electrical problem.

Knowing when 4 wheel drive is "on" in 08 rav 4


You are quite welcome. Don't worry about the Lock button being on a few times, there is a fail-safe that unlocks it.
...My "new" salespeople has told our customers on a few occasions that the 4WD "kicks in/kicks out"...needless to say, they were quickly corrected. Glad to be of service to you today. The graciousness of a FixYa rating regarding my assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for choosing FixYa for the answer to your question.

Truck shuts off anfd restart right away, no trouble code.


First thing I'd check would be battery cables, at both ends for clean, good & tight. Does it ever do it while driving at highway speeds or just at slow speeds? Wet out, dry out?

Toyota rav 4


I work for Toyota, and I will be glad to provide you with the actual answer:

The RAV/4 product is available in two models, a 4WD model and a 2WD model.
The difference between the two is on the 2WD model, there is no driveshaft going under the vehicle to the rear wheels, and no rear differential. There is no "RAV/2"; both models are called RAV/4's.

There is a lot of common confusuion about how the 4WD works. It is full time 4WD. In other words, it is always in 4WD. It does not "kick in/kick out/automatically engage", or anything like that. It is 4WD all of the time. But, when I say "4WD", that is sometimes mistaken for "all wheel drive", and, in this case, the RAV/4 is not "AWD". What this means is that if you raise the RAV/4 up on a lift, and put it in gear, 1 rear and the other side front tires will spin. True "all wheel drive" would have ALL 4 wheels spinning. This is not the case with the Rav/4. What the RAV does have, making up for not having "True AWD" on the 5 speed model, however, is a switch that locks the center differential in the transfer case, which, when engaged, applies a method of "locking" the 4WD system for maximum traction, but it is still not AWD. The automatic version doe not have this ability.
The last "true AWD" vehicle for purchase was a 1970's International Scout.
If you are considering purchasing a RAV/4, that is a very good investement. They hold their value quite well, and are virtually bulletproof; I do not make any "money" off my RAV/4 customers...
Just "gas station work". Very nice cars. I hope that this helps you, please feel free to comment back with any otherr questions...Glad to be of assistance.
