    Electrical problem i think ?

    I own a 2006 cadillac DTS performance edition it has 94,500. I got my valve cover gaskets replaced and spark plugs changed as well about 2000 miles back , now the problem after that was multiple things occurred with my car. Starting of with my high beams , fog lights, turning signals, wiper fluid, remote start I'm sure I'm missing a few things.


    Second problem I posted about this a few months back finally saved up some money to see what's wrong but I would rather ask you guys before I take it somewhere , my gas pedal has a vibration to it every time I give it gas, it seems to go away when I slightly let go of the gas and accelerate again it won't be there , but every time I wanna pick up speed it's there .

    So I just got more work done to my car had a oil leak coming from my oil pan gasket I had replaced the valve cover gaskets as well 10k miles ago same problem oil leak, but as far as my problem with the vibration on my pedal and my electrical problem, the mechanic told me it could be my cruise control and that I might need a system re flash or something like that cause when they changed my valve cover that they unplugged alot of stuff and plugged it back up. But they never reset my system. Idk if he is saying anything that makes sense but plz help I'm taking my car in next week after I fix my front lower control arms and my rear motor mount. Car has 97,800 miles on it it's a 2006 cadillac DTS performance

    There is a TSB about the pedal vibration....I so not have the TSB Number any more... But the dealer can look it up for you...

    the pedal vibration was a fairly common complaint about 4 or 5 years ago...
    I think it only affected 2006 and early 2007...

    Ok back after a of looking for the vibration coming from my pedal and i finally found the problem so says the mechanic that works on my car. He came across abs module saying that's what was giving me my vibration, and as far as my electronics problem I need a re flash or something like that. Sorry not the best at explaining, trying to help out anyone on the same boat as me
    I need a price of what I'm looking at to be wasting

    Can someone please verify. Thank you

    It would be really strange for the ABS module to give the vibration you have described.
    There is a TSB about a cable that needs to be repositioned and some insulation added to it to fix the vibration.

    Before spending money for a reflash... try this...

    There is a way to REBOOT all of the electronic modules in the entire car.
    Sometimes (lots of times) that will fix random electrical gremlins.

    Remove BOTH battery cables... negative cable FIRST...
    Touch both cables together for 5 seconds or so, making sure they have good contact with each other.
    This will drain all the capacitors in the system.

    While you have the cables off... undo the one bolted to the floor.
    Take a little piece of sandpaper and sand the paint away from the attachment point.
    It will then have a better ground.

    Re-attach the battery cables... negative cable LAST...
    You will have to do the window EXPRESS UP learn again and you MAY have to do the memory seat settings again.
    Sometimes they will forget the seat settings and sometimes they don't.
