    2008 Cadillac CTS warning codes

    1st time pulled lights from; traction control, service stabilitrac, check engine code; p0700 then 2nd time pulled
    p0100, p0113, and c0561. They stated that when inspected they didn't hook up the mass air flow sensor.. 3rd
    time while at an out of town cadillac dealer, they pulled codes p0856, p2544, p0575, u0140, u0121 and
    u0073. They seriously have no clue what's causing these codes...

    Thank you.That was by error because it kept saying try again in 30 seconds... If I could figure out how to delete one, I would!

    It actually sounds like the ECM to me. Computers can do crazy things. If nothing else, tell them to put the trim piece back the way it was maybe the problem will go away.

    Check to see if there are any ground wires in the vacinity of the trim piece they played with. A loose or poor ground can cause problems like you're describing.

    Thank you, I just called the cadillac dealer and told them to check the piece.. He stated there is an airbag in that location (the trim piece which runs vertical with the windshield) I'm not sure if he believes this could cause the issue but stated he would have the technician check. He said they plugged in the tech 2 scanner and all lights went off. On my way to the dealer this morning the car seemed like it didn't want to go anywhere. It died on me once and I was finally able to get it started again, of course with a dashboard of warning lights... It only has 60,000 miles on it, I wouldn't think it could have any serious issues. Thanks for your response! I appreciate it!

    Re: Cts

    Was there a warning light that said reduced power? Maybe even a bell sounding?

    Re: Cts

    There was not a warning light of reduced power, there was a bell sounding noise (loud noise) and I heard a ticking noise coming from the shift location as well (first time I had heard that)

    Re: Cts

    The update today is... Still can't locate the problem (this is at a cadillac dealer) they state they won't give
    Up... 10 hours of diagnosing yet can't locate why.. He stated the same thing happened twice to them while test driving however scanning the system comes up with zero problems... They are clueless at this point.. I'm just frustrated!

    katamarie,

    Are they providing you with a loner? If so, let them have your car until they correctly diagnose it and repair it.

    I know it's very frustrating! Don't give up!

    Re: Cts

    They offered, I have not taken them up on it yet because I do have another vehicle. I did tell them to keep it until the issue is found and fixed because I do not want to get stranded anywhere.
    Thanks for all your posts 8)

    Ask them to confirm the ECM is functioning as it should.

    Re: Cts

    I went in today to talk with him per his request. He told me it is not the ECM but he "thinks" it "may" be the ECBM. He stated that every time it acts up and all the lights come on they try to test it and every time they hook it up it clears the codes and then it reads that there is nothing wrong. He explained it may take another 4 - 6 hours of diagnosing at $100.00 per hour that my warrant company said is not covered under my power train warranty. I'm prob looking at $600 - $1000 just for diagnosing it sounds like at this point. I just bought this car July 7th and it seems I may havemade the biggest mistake of my life... trading in a perfect running car for a car that has this many issues. I asked him if I need to find a specialist that deals with computers and wiring and he stated that his guy has 20+ years experience and he is a specialist in this area... I wouldn't think it could be this "hard" to locate an issue.... I'm at a loss...

    Re: Cts

    Katamarie,

    I had a thought last night (I do my best thinking while asleep). Is your car still covered under the Federal Emissions Warranty? Your dealer will be able to tell you. IF you are still covered, I would find it hard to believe your car is meeting Fed emissions standards while this is happening. Does your state have emissions check stations?

    I'm quite surprised that no one from Cad Customer Service has chimed in here! Where are you Laura?

    Good Luck, Marv
