All these symptoms indicate u have a defective Vehicle speed sensor on the transmission, replace it, to confirm any other poss problems the system must be tested by a GM dealer with a tool call a Tech 2 scanner for trouble codes, there are system trouble codes stored whenever any of these waring light come on and stay on, theses codes are key to finding out what part of the system is defective and causing the lights. Until the system is tested u are just guessing, the parts are very expensive and you can spend $100's and still have the problem without proper tests being run, the starting test is the trouble code retrieval tests at the dealer with the Tech 2 GM scanner.

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 ?

I have a 99 cadillac catera an just recently my speedometer ,odometer stoped working and my abs and tc lights on my dash came on is this my vss sensor or somthing else ?


You need to have an OBII scan done. (fault scan) They'll pull the fault codes from your computer and that will identify what actually is causing your lights/issues. It sounds like you have multiple issues

My tc and abs light are coming on all the


Speedo and traction control; check wheel sensors all 4, clean and blow the sensors and reactor rings.
Is ABS light on as well? if so, you need a EBTCM module mounted to the brake ABS pump facing the battery. There are places in the US that rebuild them with warranty for under $150.

My 2000 cadillac catera check engine light is on and the tc light is on and it idle's low


What have you done so far. I would start with looking at the cars repair/maintenance history. Have the codes read (might be helpful). Could be anything, depending in what direction you need to go you might want to check for cyl. miss-fires, bad coil, IAC, fuel pressure, clogged CAT. CMP sensor. Let me know if I can help anymore.

The abs tc and speedomoter coming on and off intermittently. as well as check engine light


Change the EBTCM module on the back of the ABS pump or check the connection to the module. You may also have a loose fuse which powers the ABS system.I explained how to remove it was explained in a similar thread.

Your cruise and power steering should be affected as well since the car has variable assist PS. If it can't identify it's speed...the PS assist will not worl correctly.

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.
