SOURCE: 2001 cadillac catera ebtcm removal how to

You need to remove the upper rad hose and the battery.
Then, use a torx to remove the 6 screws (hard to get at) which will remove the EBTCM from the brake modulator. You also must disconnect the two electrical connectors (the big one has a slide tab).
There are places you can send the module to and rebuild with warranty. I took a module from a 99' and installed it in my wife's 01'. Now the speedo, odometer, cruise and power steering work perfect and no TCM / ABS light.

SOURCE: how do I check the transmission fluid in my 2001

There is no dipstick on the 01 Catera or any Catera for that matter (97 to 01) also same transmission used on 3 series BMWs.

I have 2 - 2001 Cateras....no....dip...stick.

It's a sealed transmission. There are fluid drain plugs, one at side of the tranny and one at the bottom. Jack the car up from the front on a level surface. Place a hose to a funnel and remove the top filler access plug (the side one). Insert the hose here and fill the funnel until fluid leaks out the side hole (make sure you have a catch pan). Then drop the car and let the excess fluid level out from the fill hole. Raise the car again and wipe away the excess fluid and re-install the filler plug.

SOURCE: I lost my only key for my 2001 cadillac catera,

You need to get an aftermarket coded key which can be cut by the serial number of the vehicle.
You need to be a locksmith to get the cut codes or know a locksmith.
Then you have to get the car to the dealer and have the key programmed using the Tech 2 scanner.

You can take the car to the dealer and have them give you a key, programmed and everything but it will cost around $300 for the 1st key.

I bought a 2001 Catera for $1,500.00 because it had no keys.

I used serial number to get key codes and cut the key; doors opened and seller retrieved her personal stuff.
I towed car to dealership and had the key programmed; $130 for 10 minutes work (min 1 hour shop charge).
I then programmed 3 more keys (using a key code reader) instead of letting the dealership rape me.

BTW, they (dealer) also want $350 for a programmed door remote; the stock remote!
Instead, I bought a remote starter unit (Bulldog) with 2 remote fobs for $100 and now my wife can start and find her car easily.

I recently removed the battery from my 2001 cadillac catera and after that there were problems. The sunroof no longer opens and the car has a low idle and the oil pressure indicator light went on and off....


The sunroof needs to be reprogrammed after changing the battery, but it only takes about one minute to do so. The procedure is listed in the Owner's Manual.

Cant find fuse boxes


There are 2 screws which hold the large panel right under the steering column. They use a large flat head screwdriver and are 1/4 turn. They are right on the bottom edge of this padded panel. The panel, which your knees should almost touch when sitting in the driver's seat, needs to be lifted up (slide it) after removing the screws as it is keyhole pinned.
The fuses are under there....there are more next to the battery as well.

I need a picture of the windshield drain on a 2001 catera cadillac. It seems the tube does not go all the way down to the drain. It is leaking into the body this can't be good.


You need to clean out the cabin filter drain tube. The cabin filter housing allows the air to enter the cabin through the HVAC system. When water gets in here, the drain tube allows it to escape. If the drain tube is plugged with leaves and dirt, the housing fills up and it overflows into passenger floor area.
Remove the filter, clean the drain tube (prepare to get your feet wet) and put in a new filter.
The filter is below the pass side WS wiper under the plastic cover.

Cold weater start problem. Oil smoke in from the heater vent.


The same problem happened to me and it turned out to be my heater core.

Normally smoke will come from the heater core when it needs to be replaced.

Also the smell is most likely anti-freeze and and you normally smell it when your
engine is running warm or hot.

Check your coolant levels to be sure. and the hoses leading to your Heater Core

heater cores for that vehicle normally run $180 - $230 and you need to remove your
entire Instrument Panel (IP) (Dashboard) to replace it.

I hope this helps!
