2001 caddillac seville STS

The SES light is not on. The info bar shows "check gas cap" and "replace brake pads". Both seem fine. I am wondering if a speed sensor has failed since the engine won't rev no matter how hard you press the gas. Thoughts?

Does the car seem to start and run fine when cold? Then as it warms up it loses all power? Very likely the catalytic converter is clogged. Will need replacement. Still likely suspect even if it's the same when cold. You may want to have professional diagnosis before spending money on it.
The catalytic convertor works to reduce exhaust gases. It converts carbon monoxide and other harmful materials into harmless compounds. If your catalytic convertor is failing, you'll notice a decrease in gas mileage or your car won't go any faster when you push the gas.

That might because the service center would have forgot to reset the same. or wear sensor would not have fixed.
Try to check any loose wire connection near brake calipers
Please talk to the service station.

Will your service engine light come on if you put different fuel in tank


The answer is NO, you have an unrelated problem that just happened to come up at the same time. Have your trouble codes checked.

How do you make the change brake pads light turn off on a 2001 sts


There is no "reset" new pads and sensors is the fix . If you have had this done but they didn't replace the sensors, it was done incorrectly.

MY 2001 SEVILLE STS SHAKES WHEN ITS IDLING, APPEARS AS THOUGH ITS


I just bought the same car, theres no skipping in the tranny, but your right the car will go for a while once you take your foot off the petal, I looked at that as saving gas in a way, because your crusing and not stepping on the gas.
quick question has your battery ever died? if so how long did it take to reste the sensors?

1995Sev Rear Tail & Brake Light "Possessed" & Mostly not working


if the hi mount brake lamp lights up then it is not the brake lamp switch, the other brake lamp wiring runs from the brake lamp switch through the turn signal switch. i would check all the light bulbs and sockets first because these cars like to burn out the grounds in the socket. i was a tech at a cadillac dealership for ten years, also had a 95 sts myself with the same problem. if that doesnt work then look toward the turnsignal switch and the wiring.
