I just fixed this problem on mine. Its the switch under the dash on your brake pedal. There a 2 switches, the bottom one is for the cruise control, the top one is for the brake lights. Change the top one.

I have a 2000 Catera and the brake lights don't work. I need to know the color code on the brake switch. The switch that I can get to is made at rest and opens when the brakes are applied. This seems...


Hello Mark.
In the brake lamp switch there are three switched circuits.
One that goes to the ECM one to your brake lamps and one to cruise control.
I suspect the circuit you are looking at that opens is for cruise control.
As you can see in the diagram for the Catera below.
For some reason the color of the wire for the output for the brake lamp is not shown although it indicates it's purpose. Eliminate the other colors and it will be that one.
If you require more assistance with the switch wiring let me know here in comments.
Thank you for using FixYa.

On my 98 Catera the brake lights work during the day but when the headlights come on my brake lights stay on ? Also when the headlights are on my cruise control will not work ??? Any help ????????


Your cruise will not work if the brake lights are on just like the cruise disengages when you hit the brakes.As far as the brake lights with the headlights,sounds like there is something crossed.If you hold your breaklights on with your headlights off is there a glow of the headlights or your running lights.If your rear bulbs are the round push in and turn type make sure they are installes correctly.You may have one where the contact on the bottom of the bulb is causing a jump of power from your running/parking light over to the brake light side.Well hope this helps and good luck.

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.

1997 Cadillac Catera Brake lights continually engaged at night


The problem is in the stoplight switch. It is located under the dash. When you push the brakes, the switch contact points close. When you let off the brake, the open, turning the brake lights back off. Also your cruise will not work if it is getting a signal that the brake pedal is being pushed.

The speedometer and odometer do not work on my 98 cadillac catera. I had the sensor in the transmission changed, but still nothing. I have reason to believe the guy I bought it from turned the odometer...


I have a 2000 Catera that when I changed the electronic brake control module all warning lights went off, speedo and odo worked. New EBCM is $2000 Cdn I got mine used for 170. also it can be re built at modulemasters.com for $160. Not sure about the dash light tho.
