Question about 1997 Cadillac Catera
Took alternator and had it rebuild and its still doing the samething.My radio wont work my electrical gage is in the red.Also when ever I speed up it gos up,thats what my electrical gage say
Hi, actually I believe that the cateras are in the Opel omega family of vehicles. There is a multifunction relay that controls a lot of devices in these cars including the radio. I am going to post a link that should help you find the electrical components for a 1997 catera. Believe me, you are not alone when it comes to electrical problems in these cars. They actually are not that difficult to work on and if you are savvy electrically I am sure you can trace a bad device or a bad ground. At least you know your alternator is new, just make sure the voltage regulator is functioning properly and reading between 13 and 14 volts with the car running. Here is the link, I hope it helps. As I stated, this particular relay causes a lot of headaches for catera owners, but I could be completely wrong. Just an educated guess, good luck, I hope this helps.

Check that all the ground wires(white) are clean and tight on the firewall under dash. Weak or no ground can cause feedback of power also making things go crazy. But ALWAYS check to have a good ground connection on both sides of the vehicle.

You must use 10W30 oil in the summer. On really hot days, when you are stopped and in drive, the oil pressure will drop to almost zero (according to the dash gauge).
If this is not happening under the above conditions, you need to place a shop gauge in the oil sensor sender port and test for proper pressure. If it is low (out of spec), you need to ensure the oil sump is not plugged in the crankcase. If it's not plugged, you need to replace the oil pump and fast!
The ABS issue is probably caused by the EBCTM module on the back of the ABS modulator, loose fuse, or bad connection to the module. Affects the cruise and PS as well.

costs like $100 an hour for automotive electrician. use a curcit breaker (looks like a fuse) its silver put it in wher the blown fuse is. buy a compass. and runn the compass over the wiring . when the compas moves in the direction of wiring its in that area. a short curcit creats a magnetic feild.
