If the system you bought is marked BOSE, it does not have any onboard amplifier power. The only powered radios for the Catera are units which only have AM/FM/Tape, all the CD units are Bose systems which used separate amps mounted on a tray in the trunk.

I took a stock RDS radio out of my 98 catera and put it in my 97 catera... it reads "Locked-THEFTLOCK active" on the screen. Please help


If you never entered a lockout code for your radio, youll have to take it to the dealer to get them to clear it out.

2001 cadillac catera. radio, trunk release, and gas cover release are intermittent and go out at the same time. is this a fuse issue or a wiring or relay problem that might need to go to a mechanic?


The problem is with the body computer; my wifes 01 lost the fuel door, trunk lid, radio, clock and sunroof functions intermittently, but all at the same time. It became really annoying reaching through the back seat into the trunk to open the trunk.

I installed a used 99' body computer, took it to the dealer, reprogrammed the computer to accept the existing radio (when you switch the computer, the radio; Bose, will be locked out) because it's married to the car through the body computer. This is the security system used to protect theft of the radio.
If you remove the radio from one car and install in to another, the radio will lock out. You need a tech II scanner to program the computer.
Dealer charged me $120 for labour which is minimum 1 hour shop time. Actual programming took only 10 minutes. That's why GM is doing so well on the car market. I have no pity for them.

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.

Gas tank won't open, trunk won't open, radio stopped working, left tail lamp won't work


It's the body control module. It's located under the dash to the left of the steering column. I had same problem, went to the junk yard and bought one and the problem went away. Dealer wants $600.00-700.00 for the BCM, I paid $30.00

Radio unlock code


try taking the unit out. there is a sticker on it with a serial number
call your dealer and tell them that you need a code " service department "
they will ask for the serial number on the radio
once you give the serial number they will look it up and give you the code
do not try to put a " random " code this will lock your radio and you will have to unlock it before putting the code in it.
if the screen shows " code " you are fine, just get the code and voile.
if your screen shows " waiting " the radio is locked up and i will assis you on that matter once you get the code.
