Question about 2000 Cadillac Catera
I have two comments to make about the drained battery that we found out...
1. The On-Star system stayed on when its suppose to shut-off once you shut off the engine and open the door. The green lite on on the unit is really hard to see during the day, but easly at night. I let the car sit over night and the next morning the unit was still active... hence draining the battery. The On-Star is using the same fuse as the dome lights. So to reset... with the door open pull the fuse, close the door insert the fuse, you should here a relay switch click. Open the door a wait for the dome lights to come on... the On-Star unti will not and should not unitl the car is started. You may need periodically keep on eye on this.
2. The other related problem is the radio fuse which is also identified as a battery guard. Not sure what that means or does yet... but the radio on-off situation seems to have started when I didn't replace the battery cover, so I'm wondering if the negative terminal is shorting out on the car. I'm getting a new cover to see if this corrects the problem... I know its sounds strange but why is there a battery cover to begin with.
