    The 2004 C5 pads work best from what I've heard.

    Thanks. I have the caliper sets in hand and haven't got a chance to mess with it yet, will give a try in couple of weeks.

    How much you pay for the calipers?

    I paid $70 for the whole set front and rear with hoses. Got it from ebay.

    You know the rear ones will not fit right? Must have been a whole package deal.

    I'll be using the 04 corvette pads in front.

    Question to you guys. How can I make the brake pad sensor light go out on the dash, without taking the dash out and pull the bulb? Can I jump the sensor wires in the front?


    Fog lights are working now. But I picked up a vibration in the front end. Took the car back, where I got the tires, and they now tell me one of my wheels was bent. Okay, but why put it on the drivers side front? So I can feel it? Sheesh.

    My light doesn't come on, my sensor is kinda twisted around itself, it was done before I got the car, I'm not sure if the light is out. I'm gonna have to check that.

    The sensor on my catera is the same twisted and moved away. I did this when I had to replace the rotors couple years ago. The sensor would not come so had to break the ends and after that I just twisted it and kept in there. No lights on the dash since then.

    Re: new here, have questions on 2000 Catera

    Thanks for the tips on the brake sensors guys.

    I have another issue, that I need to look into. I thought this was just my Bose radio having the issue, but it appears to be more than that. At least once a day, my Bose loses power. No clock, no radio. I never noticed till yesterday, that I also lose power to all my buttons on the dash as well. I couldn't get my trunk or fuel door to open, while I noticed the Bose had no power either. My relay box under the dash looks new. I took it apart, and all the solders look good, shinny and new looking.

    I haven't noticed if I hit a bump if I regain power. All the fuses look good. Any idea's?

    Thanks

    It could be the K-134 relay. It is located under the driver side steering wheel area, way up close to the fender, a gray looking box (approximate size of a bar soap). It may be a bad solder on the board and I have read somewhere that it could be an easy fix. You may have to re-solder all the pioints on the board and may work fine. Give it a try.

    Thanks.

    Another reason K-134 relay cuts off power is an over draw of power from the AUX Water Pump. Basically it shuts down non-essential functions to keep supplying the pump with power.

    Re: new here, have questions on 2000 Catera

    hey guys.. I just took the time to read the whole post from start to finish.. i think I would have got rid of that black catera a long time ago!

    anyway.. my catera has issues also, but always gets me where im going.

    so Ive done a ton of things, and here is what I am wondering today. I noticed retho was having a rough idol at stop lights. My catera will SOMETIMES idol ruff at stops. I recently replaced one of the air intake hoses that was torn, and would cause stalling. I have only done about 300 miles since. At first it seemed ok.. then after the car is warmed up well I will pull up to a light, and the engine drops.. like it is going to stal, then recovers, and does it once more... sometimes it will idol at 600,800 and is fine, but then sometimes its at 400 and creates a pretty good vibration in the car... I has been sugested by a gm MECH at a chevy dealer that perhaps flasing the computer or TB... ??
    I noticed yesterday.. for the first time ever that when I fueled and got back in the car.. I had to crank and crank.. befor it started.. and that has never happened before.
    I did a fuel addative for a sticky lifter about 3 months ago. I did plugs around the same time. I replaced fuel filter a week or 2 ago.

    Let me know about the shaking and intermitten low idle, thanks.
