Question about 2009 Cadillac SRX

2 Answers

I have a 2009 SRX and the check engine light comes on. It is on for a few days and then goes off. We've had it to the dealer a number of times, with no success. Any idea of what may be causing the problem? I've been researching and have seen everything from a faulty gas cap to bad plugs.

First off, i had the same problems with my gm , it doesnot like the octain that the fuel has, most like the more expensive fuel, 90 octain, look in your manual, it shouls tell you what you should run in it, now if you do run that high of octain fuel, then there is something else wrong, i had my local auto zone put there reader on it, its free and they can tell you what it might be.

If the engine light comes on there should be a code recorded in the CPU to indicate which sensor is causing a problem. Run fault codes to see if a fault code is recorded

Did you mechanic read the codes in the computer? I find it hard to believe that a qualified mechanic didn't tell you what codes were popping up. The next time it happens go to the auto parts store (autozone or advanced auto) ask the to read your check engine light. They'll do it for free and they'll give you a print out of the possible causes for the malfunction too.

Engine power reduced (came on) 2008 srx wad model


My 2008 SRX also had this problem, at first I would turn the engine off and that would fix the problem, but then both the check engine light and the reduce engine power light would come right back on. I brought it to my local mechanic and the code that came up was for the timing chain or the crank shaft. They checked with cadillac and they had problems with timing chain so that was replaced. It was fine for a few days and is now doing the same exact thing. Can anyone help?

The car should be under warrentee and the dealer should fix it free. Don't try to fix it your self as you'll throw the dealer a loop that will make them take longer to fix it
