DTC P0101
The mass air flow (MAF) sensor is an air flow meter that measures the amount of air entering the engine. The powertrain control module (PCM) uses the MAF sensor signal in order to provide the correct fuel delivery for a wide range of engine speeds and loads. A small quantity of air entering the engine indicates deceleration or idle. A large quantity of air entering the engine indicates an acceleration or high load situation. The MAF sensor has an ignition 1 voltage circuit, a ground circuit and a signal circuit. The PCM applies a voltage to the sensor on the signal circuit. The sensor uses the voltage in order to produce a frequency based on inlet air flow through the sensor bore. The PCM uses the barometric pressure, air density, manifold pressure, throttle position, and the engine RPM in order to calculate a predicted MAF value. The PCM compares the actual MAF sensor signal to the predicted MAF value in order to determine if the signal is stuck based on a lack of variation, or is too low or too high for a given operating condition. DTC P0101 will set if the actual MAF sensor signal is not within a predetermined range of the calculated MAF value.

Diagnostic Aids
Inspect for the following conditions:
• A misrouted harness--Inspect the harness of the MAF sensor in order to verify that the harness is not routed too close to the following components:
- The ignition cassettes
- Any solenoids
- Any relays
- Any motors
• The throttle plate sticking or excessive deposits on the throttle plate or in the throttle bore.
• Any unmetered air that enters the engine may cause this DTC to set. Verify that the oil dipstick is fully seated and the oil filler cap is secure.
• The MAF display should increase from 4-7 g/s at idle to 190 g/s or more at the 1-2 shift during a wide open acceleration. If not, inspect for a restriction.
• The barometric pressure that is used in order to calculate the predicted mass air flow value is based on the MAP sensor reading at key ON. A skewed MAP sensor will cause the calculated Mass Air Flow value to be inaccurate. The value shown for the MAP sensor display varies with the altitude. With the ignition ON and the engine OFF, 103 kPa is the approximate value displayed at or near sea level. The value decreases by approximately 3.0 kPa for every 1,000 feet of altitude.

Take it to a Cadillac dealer an have it programmed. You can't do anything .

I got this free Pdf manual from reliable-store for free and I don't think Ive visited a mechanic or fixya for help for more than 3-4 times out of the 20 times I fixed the chipper in these 4 years

Sounds like the computer is not entering phase lock. do you have a check engine light? Temperature sending unit would be a likely suspect.

2005 CTS 3.6 Dead battery, key stuck, service anti theft and nothing happens when you turn key, Ttried everything, ECM reset, key memory reset, charged battery to 12.7 volts, locked door w remote and opened w key, anyway you get the idea. After 3 days of online reading and trying, THIS IS WHAT WORKED, 1. put key into on position 2. removed sarter relay from front fuse panel 3. jumped 1st pin closest to fender and passenger seat with pin that is closest to motor and front fender. I used a paper clip and just made contact long enough for car to start. ran car for five minutes and took key out and everything went back to normal. then I took car to advance auto parts to have engine light reset. if car does not go back to normal you have ECM (car computer) failure. video on YouTube under "no crank, no start"

Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuits using a DVOM - digital volt ohmmeter ? Looking at a wiring diagram to see what all is involved in making the right turn signal work ? Free wiring diagrams here Enter vehicle info. Year , make , model an engine size . Under system click on lighting ,then under subsystem click on turn signal lamps . Click the search button then the blue link . Looking at the diagram for the turn signals i see the turn signal switch is a input to the BCM - body control module . The turn signals are controlled by the BCM . Having a professional scan tool to check input data to the BCM an out put control for the turn lamps on the right side would save time .

Turn Signal Lamps
Battery voltage supplied to the body control module (BCM) from the fuses listed below is used for turn signal and hazard lamp operation.
• LT TRN/SIG fuse for the left turn signals
• CTSY/RF TRN fuse for the right front turn signal
• RR TRN/SIG fuse for the right rear turn signal
When the turn signal switch is place in either the LEFT or RIGHT position, ground from G300 is applied through the turn signal switch signal circuit to the BCM indicating the turn signal request. In response to this signal, the BCM applies a pulsating voltage to the front and rear turn signal lamps supply voltage circuits cycling the lamps ON and OFF. At the same time the BCM sends a GMLAN serial data message to the instrument panel cluster (IPC) to cycle the appropriate turn signal indicator ON and OFF.
Ground for the turn signal lamps is supplied as follows:
• G104 provides ground for the left and right front turn signal lamps
• G402 provides ground for the left rear stop/tail/turn signal lamps
• G403 provides ground for the right rear stop/tail/turn signal lamps
• The driver door module (DDM) provides a low reference for the left outside rearview mirror turn signal
• The front passenger door module (FPDM) provides a low reference for the right outside rearview mirror turn signal

Sound like you've blown a fuse, check the owners manual for the location of your fuse and check it out, if that doesn't work get back to me!

If this helps please let me know by clicking the green helpful icon, if you would leave a few words as a review or recommendation that would be greatly appreciated! It lets me know if I'm doing well or not so all feedback is appreciated. Just a few words would be quite helpful if you think this answer is helpful. Have a great day and good luck, you'll get this and now you can help anyone who has this issue!

You will have go to the Cadillac agent , purchase a new key and have them program it to the ignition switch.

Should be on the throttle body...some vehicle you can replace the sensor and some you have to replace the throttle body.

Cadillac Cars &... | Answered on Feb 04, 2019

Connect obd reader and scan codes and clear them. If they go away you did that the first time you wrongly conected wires. If they don’t go away means that problem persists so recheck your job. Maybe they still not connected properly. If they are maybe you actually have problem with oil pressure and ac. Scan and read fault codes. That will help you diagnose it.
