Question about 2000 Cadillac Catera

1 Answer

IF MY CATERA ISN'T STARTED EVERYDAY IT GOES TOTALLY DEAD- NO POWER-NO CLOCK-NO LIGHTS, NOTHING! ALSO MY RADIO WILL BE PLAYING JUST FINE, THEN IT WILL JUST GO OFF AND WHEN THIS HAPPENS I CANT OPEN THE TRUNK, AND THE CLOCK GOES OFF, THEN IT COMES BACK ON AND THE CLOCK STILL SHOWS THE CORRECT TIME. THIS HAPPENS VERY FREQUENTLY!

I have a 2002 KIA Spectra that will not start. I turn the key and nothing happens. No lights, dash lights, nothing!!! I had the battery checked and charged at AutoZone and put it back in. Still nothing....


you always have to reset when you take the battery out or it goes stone dead. loosing power sounds like a battery going dead due to no charging. charge it up and drive it bck to auto zone for an alternator check.

2002 Dodge Stratus, Start Problem/ Electrical?


First thing I would do, is remove, clean,inspect & tighten all battery connections including & especially the other end of my negative connection. Also any connections to a power distribution box, that is usually found near the battery. In your explanation, you say when it does start, everything works normal, does that include radio & clock?

Radio wont work


wfdyer,

go buy a new radio. You can usually get free installation. If you are a do it yourselfer. Then go to crutchfields web site. They are great, they give you the adaptor plates and wire harness to go from what ever radio you get to the car, with no splicing (cutting and reconnecting of wires) They will tell you what radios will not work and tell you what ones will.

Sorry to say it but you have power to the radio, and there are really 3 things a radio needs to work. power, speakers, and a signal. you can check the antena to make sure its not broken or disconnected. but most of the times its the radio

Battery goes dead often. Must jump or charge almost everyday


perhaps your problem is not so complicated. maybe one of your vanity mirror lights arent shutting off or something. go out in your car at night and look for light after your dome light shuts off.
