Question about Cadillac Escalade

1 Answer

2002 Cadillac Escalade - was driving home from store when all of a sudden it seemed like I was running out of gas. Tank was 1/4 full. I filled it up. I was careful not to drive full acceleration so I could get home safely. SERVICE ENGINE SOON light came on. Car was NOT overheating or anything like that. No leaks either. No Car is 130K miles has a perfect service record, I change oil every 3000 miles. Also noticed secondary info control panel was no longer in english, looked foreign.

SERVICE ENGINE SOON light has nothing to do with overheating or leaks ! OBD2 - emissions . DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the PCM / ECM - engine computer . Probably a sensors or emission problem . Take an have it checked .

SOURCE: Service engine soon light 2004 Alero

if it truly set code for "loose fuel cap" or po455 large leak, then tightening the cap and driving a couple days should reset on its own. if not then get it checked for free at autozone and report back with code # and can help from there. they'll ck for free but are not allowed to reset.

  3. Fully push and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. If the CHANGE OIL SOON light flashes 2 times, the system is reset. However if the light comes on and stays on for 5 seconds, the system did not reset. Repeat the he procedure if the system does not reset.

My escalade flashed a warning light to reduce the engine power it then shut down and wouldnt start


Your Escalade has put itself into "limp home mode", it is protecting you from destroying the engine or transmission. I would take it to autozone or Pepboys let them scan it for a stored code....it could be several different things.

How replace fuel pump on Cadilac Escalade EXT


the fuel pump is located in the fuel tank. so you would need to drop the gas tank. to make sure that is the issue turn on the key and remove the gas cap and listen. you should hear a humming sound if it is working.

The fuel light comes on and off after filling with gas


More then likely you have a sending unit inside of the fuel tank going bad. Does you gas gauge also show empty when the fuel light comes on?

Escalade won't start


check the fuel pump. there is an access port on the fuel rail underneath the intake manifold cover. it looks like a valve for putting air in a tire. at your local car parts store you can find a fuel pressure guage to make sure your getting the 45lbs psi that is needed to run the fuel system. if your not getting 45psi when you crank the engine replace the fuel pump. it is located in the gas tank. ( FYI ) If you run below a 1/4 tank of fuel the fuel pump is no longer covered with gas, and over heats. thats why most of the gm pumps go bad. D

I have a 2002 Cadillac Escalade that ran completely out of gas.


If you can get a rubber mallet under the gas tank,,rap on the underside of the tank as someone else tries to start the car.
Sometimes this is enough to get the pump working again.
But it usually is a temporary fix and you need to have a new pump installed.
