SOURCE: coolant leak

You should be able to, so yes. If you have a coolant leak the pressure will build and slowly decrease or it will not get to the correct pressure. Unless the leak is in the radiator cap itself as the pressure tester generally uses a different cap.

SOURCE: battery drain in 2000 Cadillac Catera

Disconnect one battery terminal (+ or -) but not both and place a large lamp like a headlamp (12v) in series with the battery terminal that is disconnected and the terminal that you removed. If the lamp lights, you are getting a phantom power drain. If the lamp lights dim, place a smaller lamp like a signal light; 5 or 10 watts or so. If you have an ammeter, use that instead as long as you can read it from the fuse area as you go through this process.

Go to the fuse panel and in order, remove the fuses one by one. When you remove a fuse, and the lamp stays lit, put the same fuse right back. Keep going through all the fuses until you find one that shuts the test light off. When you find the fuse that causes the problem, the circuit that is fed off that fuse is causing the problem. I had same issue and no circuit raised its head.

It is normal for the car to draw about 20 to 50mA which keeps the clock and other presets alive and allows the body computer to accept signals from the remote door lock. This is very little current for a car battery.

On the 00, 01, there is a multifunction relay located (in my 01 anyway) above the fuse area in behind the dash, it's a grey box about the size of a pack of cigarettes. In it there are 4 or 5 relays, one of them monitors battery voltage when the vehicle is shut off. When battery voltage drops below a predetermined voltage, the relay kills the power saving the battery for effective start.

I repaired my multifunction relay board by re soldering all the traces on the PC board. The relay box is about $80 (dealer) if you don't want to tackle this. After I repaired the MF relay box, my trunk worked everytime, sunroof, radio and fuel door. And best of all, my battery drain problem disappeared. Its been 2 years now.

The check engine light on my 2001 cadillac catera sport came on followed by a flashing fuel cap light. I checked the fuel cap and it is on tight. What is going on?


The car performs a vacuum check at start up. If there is a leak in the tank, lines etc. the fuel cap will come on.

Coolant leaking, apparently at heater core where


You could but it is a tricky job as you need to take a good part of the dash apart. I wouldn't bring it to the dealer unless you have cash to burn. The part will probably be a couple hundred and then 3-4 hours labor or so. Probable plan $600 or so.

A/C


The hot air from your aircon usually has nothing to do with freon. I'm not sure about your particular car but usually there is a 3/4 inch valve near the rear of the engine to regulate hot water flow to the heater radiator under the dash. This valve can sometimes seize up. If it is a vacuum controlled valve, check that the vacuum lines are connected and not split.

Leveling light comes on and blinks


The leveling light is when the catera is trying to adjust it's back end based on weight, so whenever the light comes on you need to park your car and wait until it turns off. If it begins to blink do the same thing. If it doesn't go off in 5 min then go get it checked out by a mechanic, because something could be broken. It is in the manual if this does not make sense.
