I had this problem too. I had a wiring problem which kept blowing fuses, but I've had so many problems with this car that sometimes I'm not sure what was causing what.

If you pull the emergency brake and lift the panel around the gear shift aside, there is a little yellow switch that will unlock it for you. I had to do this everyday and it gets very annoying, but will at least let you drive till you find out what's wrong.

Why is the sport mode light flashing on my 2000 Cadillac Catera?


Sport Mode Indicator Lamp and Automatic Transmission Warning Lamp (STL)
The sport mode indicator lamp illuminates when the vehicle has been put into the sport mode by pressing the "S" button on the gear selector. When this lamp is illuminated the vehicle will have slightly firmer shifts and increased performance for part and full throttle situations.
This lamp will also flash when there may be a problem with the automatic transmission. The transmission control module (TCM) performs a continual self diagnosis of certain control functions. The lamp will flash only when an error is detected. The TCM will store in memory a current and/or history trouble code when a problem is detected. I'd have it checked out !

Why won't the shifter shift out of park on a 1998 cadillac catera


There is a lock out. It will only come out of park with your foot on the brake pedal. As you press the brake you should hear a small click by the shifter. If its not working, there is an override that should be near the shifter. It might have a plastic cover on it, but once you find it you can stick a key in the hold and release the lock-out. Check your owners manual as it will have explicit instructions on how it works.

Why won't the shifter shift out of park to drive on a 1998 cadillac cater?


hay ritchie it sounds like it is the shifter solenoid went out. now if you want you can manually release the solenoid lock by lifting up on the shifter boot and look on the left side. you should be able to see a yellow lever that you can pull . you would need to start the car and with your foot on the brake this will allow power to the solenoid now also wilepushing on the lever you need to shift out of park to say neutral.now if you shift back into park again it will be locked and you will need to repeat this again. hope this helps you out

When i start my car and press the brake to shift out of park it sticks and wont move. i have and automatic 1998 cadilac catera


HI, there is a solenoid(switch) that's located in shift linkage housing that works in conjunctions with the brake pedal when you shift from park to reverse or drive. this is a safety situation.

Sometimes, this solenoid(switch) can malfunction or die. In this case, it will prevent the gear shift lever from moving into the reverse or parked position. Simply replacing this shift lever solenoid will fix this issue. You can expose the solenoid by disassembling the shift stick housing,

Please rate and have a great day:)

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.
