Check engine light will not come on just because some dash lights are not working. That means there will be no codes stored in ur ECM ( electronic control module/ computer) . U need to check your fuses and your multifunction K 134 relay which is underneath your steering wheel. Those are known to go bad on these cars and cause all kinds of problems with lighs.

You need to have an OBII scan done. (fault scan) They'll pull the fault codes from your computer and that will identify what actually is causing your lights/issues. It sounds like you have multiple issues

ABS and TC light on. Speedometer and odometer are not working


If the speedo and odometer are not working it could be the speed sensor in the transmission. And the speed sensor could also knock out the ABS and traction control systems.
Have you had the body computer scanned for trouble codes ?

My '99 catera speedometer doesnt work and the


You need to replace the traction control module located on the ABS pump. There are places in the US where they will rebuild it for you with warranty for about $150.
Its tricky to get off (you need to remove the rad hose between the battery and the pump to get to it, but don't disconnect the ABS module, just the TC module mounted at end of the ABS unit (has a bunch of brake lines coming out if it).

The power steering is variable assist, relative to the speed of the vehicle, so if the speedo doesn't work, then the PS won't and you should have TC and ABS lights on. The electrical connectors to the module are tricky to remove. don't force them. One connector has a sliding lock bar.

Volvo abs lights stays on


Usually the ABS computer knows what it is doing. You may want someone to hookup a scanner to the ABS test port.
When I had my speedometer and odometer act up, it turned out to be a bad alternator. You might want to check yours.

The speedometer and odometer do not work on my 98 cadillac catera. I had the sensor in the transmission changed, but still nothing. I have reason to believe the guy I bought it from turned the odometer...


I have a 2000 Catera that when I changed the electronic brake control module all warning lights went off, speedo and odo worked. New EBCM is $2000 Cdn I got mine used for 170. also it can be re built at modulemasters.com for $160. Not sure about the dash light tho.

ABS and TC light on, speedometer and odometer not working


I have the 2000 Cadillac Catera Sport and I had the same problem. ABS, TC light and no speedometer and odo. I thought it was an electrical problem however I solved the problem by refurbishing the ABS Module. If you bring to the dealer it will cost you $3,000. You can have your ABS module rebuilt try modulemaster.com they do it for about $200 I believe. I got mine fixed because a friend of mine removed them and soldered some loose connectors together. All it cost me was a case of beer! It worked for my car just a suggestion for you guys. My ABS Module was a Bosch 5.3. Hope this helps!

Speedometer and odometer


It is the EBTCM. (eletronic brake traction control module ) You can still get them from Cadillac for the small fee of $1300.00. I know I fell out of my chair too... But the good news is, yes the company on ebay can fix it for about $200.00, but you need to pull it, and send it to them. Looking under the hood, it is on the driver side, under every-thing. it is at the point where the radiator hose enters the engine block. It has a lage plug of wires, and some brake lines hooked to it. only pull just the plastic part off and send.. Good luck and i hope this helps everyone...
