Question about 1998 Cadillac Catera

1 Answer

1998 Catera, the alarm system started to sound and I don't know how to reset it, or what set it off. We had the car sitting out all day, waxed it, left the windows down, and when we opened the door the alam went off. Pulled the negative cable to the car, but when I re-attach it the alarm goes off again. How do you reset these alarms, and what sets them off. We only have one key, and it only opens the car and starts it. Thanks Gregg in Wichita Kansas

There is no reset, whenever you turn the igntion key to on or unlock the door with the remote or the key the system is disramed, if it goes off like you have going on a sensor in the system is defective and you will need the dealer to scan the system for the fault.

I have a 1998 cadillac catera...yesterday it was starting & driving fine. i turned it off pulled out a relay fuse, put it back in and now the car wont start..it sounds like it wants to but dosent? can...


It's possible you activated the anti-theft system when you pulled the relay. Look for a security light to confirm this. If that's the case, insert your key into the drivers door and turn as if unlocking the car. If the security light isn't on, you may have inadvertently blown a fuse when replacing the relay.

Every time I open the door nad drive the car, then shut it off the alarm goes off and I can not find a way to shut it off. How do you do it? I also do not have the key fobs.


quickest way i know of here is providing its a factory immobilisor and not a boy racer add on then take the chip out of the key and tape it under the shroud next to the transponder ,This way the car thinks its got the key in and this will stop the alarm

Reset 98 cadillac catera alarm


You can get one from the dealer or on ebay.
I would recommend an aftermarket unit with car starter. Much cheaper, 2 remotes and starts the car as well.
