hello i have a 2001 catera ,it first had a problem keeping coolant in it .I got that problem solved then the check engine light shows up. i had it tested and the follwing codes came up:
p0560
p0748
p0455
p1700
Can one error bee cleared up or do they all have to be done at one time. The mechanic says he could not work on it to take to a cadillac dealer because he doesnt have the codes to reset the computer.I dont understand that statement.
Any suggestion ?

You appear to have several problems working against you simultaneously:

AWH: On-Board Diagnostic Trouble Codes (OBD2 Codes) - OBD2 Powertrain Codes (Cadillac OBD-II Codes) (http://myweb.accessus.net/~090/dtcobd2p.html#pow)

Do you want to tackle this yourself? If you have a PDA or laptop computer you can buy an interface for it that will get you in. Here is one example:

PDA-Dyno and OBD2 Scan Tool (http://www.nology.com/pdadyno.html)

but these things come in lots of differents brands and flavors. Just be sure to buy one that is CAN enabled, not for your Catera, but so you will be up to speed on the newer cars.

If this sort of thing is not for you, you probably need to pay your dealer a visit.
