Changing the cabin air filter may help some but i suspect that there is bacteria / mold that is in the evap core box for the a/c system. This is a common issue. Your local dealer can assist in this.

I have a 2009 Cadillac Escalade that I have just purchased, vents smell like maple syrup when the AC is not on Why???


Well it could be something the previous owner spilled in the vents, or sprayed into the vents to try to cover up a moldy smell.
You might try a detail shop to get rid of the smell.

2005 cadillac cts base water pump replaced by unauthorized dealer. Now "check coolant light is coming on again" Any thoughts on this matter


If there is no indication of overheating, the check coolant light is probably triggered by a sensor indicating low coolant level. It's also possible that there is air trapped in the cooling system from when the water pump was replaced. Trapped air could cause the sensor to throw the trouble light. Bleed the air from the cooling system and see if the light goes out. You may have to clear the light after bleeding the system.

Getting a cigarette smell coming out of the air vents. Just bought the car and didn't notice a smell before.


getting rid of cigarette smell is nigh on impossible,without taking down the whole dash/heater matrix/a/c system.and steam cleaning the whole thing.you could try an aerosol spray(from a dealer)that you spray into the outside air vent,but that only maskes it,unless it is very strong.(the nicotine sticks to everything)smoking should be banned in cars......same as cellphones.....

There is a bad musky smell that comes out of vents.when i turn on.i thought it was my heater coil./evoprator? but i got heat? i want to get rid of that smell.


Under the cowl on the passenger side (where the hood and windshield meet) there may either be a cabin air filter or just a mesh screen. If it has a filter, then replace it as that's probably the cause. If it's a mesh screen, then most likely it's allowed stuff into the vent and has caused the drain on the vent to clog and is most likely the cause of the smell. I'm not sure where the actual drain will be on your car. You could also install a filter in place of the mesh screen as well.

Cts won't start after oil change


Had the same problem. 2005 Cadillac CTS with the 3.6L V6 would not start after a oil change. I started looking for wires and stuff that might have been disconnected. That is when I realized that I had also checked the air filter. The hose from the air filter box to the intake had come slightly loose from the intake. The car would not run with an air leak at the air cleaner box box hose. Put the hose on tight and problem fixed.
