Question about 2001 Cadillac Catera

1 Answer

I recently removed the battery from my 2001 cadillac catera and after that there were problems. The sunroof no longer opens and the car has a low idle and the oil pressure indicator light went on and off. Would this be linked to taking the battery out, or is it a fuse?

The sunroof needs to be reprogrammed after changing the battery, but it only takes about one minute to do so. The procedure is listed in the Owner's Manual.

My 2000 Catera drains the battery overnight and requires charging to start the next day. What is going on?

I had the same problem, it ended up being that the Body Control Module was water damaged due to a leak in the drainage hoses from the sunroof.

Check or replace/repair the K134 multi function relay module located under and up the dash on drivers side. Its about the size of a pack of cigarettes and gray in color.

I opened mine and re-soldered all the components on the board. I had radio going on and off, trunk not opening, sunroof with mind of it's own, and dying battery.

All was solved with this module...under $100 at the dealer if you don't want to goof with it.

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.

Cant find fuse boxes

There are 2 screws which hold the large panel right under the steering column. They use a large flat head screwdriver and are 1/4 turn. They are right on the bottom edge of this padded panel. The panel, which your knees should almost touch when sitting in the driver's seat, needs to be lifted up (slide it) after removing the screws as it is keyhole pinned.
The fuses are under there....there are more next to the battery as well.

I have a 2000 cadillac catera my radio, maplight, high beam light, heated seats, and onstar does not work when I start the engine. when I turn it off they work until I open the door. PLEASE HELP

Did you recently have a loss of power to the car? change the battery? if so, you need to reset your system. My husband and I just figured this out this weekend. His sunroof hasn't worked in two years and it turns out you have to reset all the power options in the car. Google 2000 cadillac catera %calibrate ETC% loss of power, you'll find the step by step instructions for recalibrating the car's computer and resetting the power options
