There is no power steering belt - the PS pump is driven by the serpentine belt on the passenger end of the engine.

2002 cadillac dts,when turning right at low speeds turns extremely hard,only right


You need to get the front suspension checked as a precaution, to rule out damage. You should also check if you have any vehicle error codes (DTC\'s) set. You do not need a scan tool to do this - simultaneously hold in the top of the Info button and the On/Off button for a few seconds and your instrument panel will go into diagnostic mode. Be prepared with paper and pencil - you will likely have a bunch of them which you can then look up on the internet.



Mechanically, the most probable cause is a failing steering rack and pinion assembly, due to excessive wear on the rack bushings. This wear is usually caused by the protective rubber boots on the control rods failing (letting road crap get onto the exposed rods), or bad power steering fluid. Older Cadillacs are prone to this type of damage. Another possible cause is a failure of the variable effort steering actuator (part of the rack).

The stability control system is typically triggered by the abs system/connector sensor on your wheel hub bearing. If you haven't replaced your hub bearings on the front you may have one going bad. Cheap fix for a diy.

Stuck eldorado key in DTS ignition now car won't start


Make sure your steering wheel isn't locked. Sometimes a key won't turn until you jiggle the wheel while trying to turn the key.

2000 catera frequent speedometer not working


Hi, in ure case the abs ecu is obviously a main ecu. it sounds like you have a can communication problem where your system detects hi speed can malfunction, or interferance, measure your end of line resistance=120ohms and network nominal value should be 60ohms voltages between can hi and low should ad up to 5v , or to ground eg. can hi=2.7v then can low should measure 2.3v. if either one of these measurements dont add up you know which cercuit is at fault.

It might even be a vehicle speed /wheelspeed sensor contaminated or damaged component causing system shut down.
