How many miles do I have left when the gas light starts blinking on a cadillac catera 2000


You have about 3 gallons in the tank, so that menas about 50 miles is safe. Never run this car out of gas, you will damage the electric fuel pump inside the gas tank, low fuel/no fuel overheats the pump because the gasoline cools it while it is running.

This car just shuts down while driving after it sets for a few min. it will start back and run good till it shuts down again


Hi,could be an "airlock" in the fuel tank, next time it does it open the filler and listen for any air thats rushing into the tank , if there is a suction noise the fuel tank breather could be blocked, good luck.

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
