  1. 2008-2013 CTS General Discussion
    So it's 100+ and humid here in Georgia. I drive my 2010 CTS RWD about 300-400 miles a week sometimes more. It has 118k miles. Started working on it about 6 months ago with front wheel bearings and new set of brakes. Regular oil changes etc. Prior to June this year I would drive it mostly on the...
  2. 2008-2013 CTS General Discussion
    I have a 2012 CTS Sport Wagon. I received a warning to service battery charging system and a battery light while driving, it was then obvious that the car was running solely from the batteries power and in no time the electrical systems and lights became quite dim and ultimately I shut off the...
  3. FWD DeVille 1985-2005, Fleetwood, and 60 Special
    Like pictured above I'm thinking this will work but I didn't know if there was a better spot or way to get power right from a source
  4. Escalade and ESV Forum - 2015-2020
    Hey! I came home from work one evening and had some friends over and we all decided to go to dinner. Since I drive the largest vehicle we all were going to pile up in my truck. I go back outside and hit the remote start and the alarm goes off for about 15 seconds then nothing. Fob won’t unlock...
  5. SRX 2nd Generation Forum - 2010-2016
    I could really use some help, about a week ago we got into trying to find our downshift solenoid on my 2010 srx and we got into the TCM underneath of the car, we disconnected everything prior to doing this like the battery and drained the transmission fluid. Finally today we decided since we...
  6. STS Forum - 2005-2012
    Hi I’ve got a 2005 Cadillac STS v8 the radio only plays through the dash center speaker so I ordered a factory amp but today I had to jump start the car and while jump starting everything started working, all speakers, door chimes etc… makes me think the amp isn’t blown? Also this morning for...
  7. FWD DeVille 1985-2005, Fleetwood, and 60 Special
    Hi, I just purchased a 1998 Cadillac DeVille from my neighbor. The battery was dead so I replaced it. As soon as electrical power is restored, the horn starts. I have tried a number of things, but nothing works so far. I called the service manager at the local dealership and he said...
  8. XTS Forum- 2013-2019 Including XTS V-Sport
    I have a 2016 XTS that for the most part works great. I have a problem with starting where the engine will not turn over when I try to start the car. I took it to the dealer who diagnosed it as a battery problem. They put in a new battery and I had no problems for 2-3 weeks. The problem started...
  9. ELR Forum - 2014-2016
    Yesterday was the first time the car switched over to ICE soon after a fresh charge. The battery is now 7 years old. Warranty until September, 2022. I purchased the car exactly 4 years ago. I also am noticing the mileage range on a full charge gas dropped. In first year, I was getting 32-34...
  10. STS Forum - 2005-2012
    Had a 2005, then this factory built 06' for its lifetime. Battery requires replacing every 4yrs like clockwork and today was the day. New cell is good and power restored, however vehicle will not start and is throwing messages on the DIC such as "Theft Attempted" "Service Soon" "Service AC". I...
  11. ATS General Discussion Forum
    My '13 ATS has something in the air ducts that causing a rumbling ever since I changed the cabin air filter, probably some leaves (the filter was loaded as I pulled it out). I want to remove the blower motor and clean very good in there, but according to the service manual that means I have to...
  12. Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Hi Everyone! First post here on this forum hoping to get some help! -Radio audio goes silent. Radio is still on and working but no audio. Usually if I press the knob to turn the radio off and then back on, it will start working again but repeats the issue. This problem happens randomly...
  13. XTS Forum- 2013-2019 Including XTS V-Sport
    My XTS was parked in the garage most of the winter. I got in to check the gas before taking a trip and there’s nothing. The hazard lights blinked for about 15 minutes but there isn’t enough power to even have resistant in the power button, unlock the doors, move the seat or open the trunk. Could...
  14. STS Forum - 2005-2012
    I have a 2007 Cadillac STS. The car runs great. The only issue I am currently having is that the battery keeps draining while the car is off. It is draining pretty quickly. I have heard about doing a parasitic draw test but I don't know how to do it. The three different mechanic shops that I...
  15. DTS Forum - 2006-2011
    I sent an email to Optima asking a question and thought I would post it here to see if anyone has any input. This isn't my normal account, but I can't remember my login at the moment. "I have a question about combining different models of Yellowtops. I'll start by explaining my current setup. I...
  16. Seville and Eldorado Forum
    I just replaced the alternator and battery in my 90 Seville, but since I've started it up again the water pump (I believe), has started whistling a little bit. Should I be worried? How urgently should I think about replacing the water pump? So far it looks like it's not leaking, and the car is...
  17. ATS General Discussion Forum
    While trying to put a new battery in unfortunately it touched a metal piece of the trunk which seemed to cause a short. Upon reconnecting the battery the light in the trunk came back on and the key fob was able to lock/unlock the doors along with the headlights coming on so I figured things were...
  18. ATS General Discussion Forum
    I just replaced the battery in my 2014 ATS. When I picked it up from the garage it started fine, went to my parents house and turned the car off for about half an hour and it started up again no problem. Then I got home, parked the car/turned it off for about an hour. Went back out to move it...
  19. DTS Forum - 2006-2011
    I have a 2009 DTS with 215,000 miles... About a month ago my Service Charging System light on my dashboard came on. I figured the problem was a bad alternator and ending up replacing it with a remanufactured carquest one. Everything was working great for about a month. Today as I'm driving the...
