FYI...Brasington in Gainesville will sell parts at 20% over cost if you mention you're an Internet buyer...and you can pick them up locally at the counter.

Yeup! When I replaced my HCV a few months back, I ordered from them... Got it for $59.xx, I believe it was? I have the receipt at home... Very friendly and helpful over there... I feel very fortunate to have them here in town... :)

maybe when changing the bulb it shorted out. what i would do is change the bulb and then check all fuses. if all fuses are good check to see if you have power at the wire

if the top row of lights on the headlamp switch are blown how can u replace them or do i have to buy the whole switch assembly.the ones where you switch the lights from off to on are out and sometimes when i first get in the car they shine a faded red color but then go off immediately and on the same switch the lights where you can turn the foglights on,the sentinel etc are fine what is that about or are the top ones jus dying.i still need to know how to replace if possible.thanks

never mind i finally managed to pop out the headlamp switch although i'll have to get the bulb from the dealer because of the way its made atleast thats only a buck. if only i could get the bulb outta the socket for the traction control button.

from the manual: "if the outside temperature display begins to flash, this means that icy road conditions are possible. adjust your driving if needed. the display will flash for about 30 seconds and then remain on steady."

now see i looked for that in the manual for at least ten minutes and gave up...i just assumed that like every other warning light it meant you were losing coolant...lol

i changed the bulb for the headlamo switch and it's right now jus be careful when you pull ou the switch because there is a small spring and two clips on the side.

Are you a certified cadillac tech? I am looking to buy a catera but hear some mechnical nightmares with some of these cars. So before i get one I would like recommedations and get it inspected with someone that knows what they are doing. I am in Tampa where are you?
