Question about 2001 Cadillac Catera
The problem is with the body computer; my wifes 01 lost the fuel door, trunk lid, radio, clock and sunroof functions intermittently, but all at the same time. It became really annoying reaching through the back seat into the trunk to open the trunk.
I installed a used 99' body computer, took it to the dealer, reprogrammed the computer to accept the existing radio (when you switch the computer, the radio; Bose, will be locked out) because it's married to the car through the body computer. This is the security system used to protect theft of the radio.
If you remove the radio from one car and install in to another, the radio will lock out. You need a tech II scanner to program the computer.
Dealer charged me $120 for labour which is minimum 1 hour shop time. Actual programming took only 10 minutes. That's why GM is doing so well on the car market. I have no pity for them.

It could be one or all of the above. you can start by checking the fuses in the passenger compartment and then the under hood fuses. if all seems ok there then off to a reputable repair facility for further checking.
