  3. I have a sound that needs identifying too..

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    On ETC, when I floor it from a stop, there is a split second groaning noise that is similar to the sound traction control makes when active, or ABS -- however there is no accompanying shudder. The car shifts fine and runs fine -- however it freaks me out and I let off of the gas. If I take off...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Hey guys. Ok, from what I understand is that the traction control works like this: Press TC once(TC light comes on which means TC off), Press TC a second time(competition mode) starting from scratch with TC on, Press and hold for 5 or so seconds(Stability and TC totally disengaged...

  7. Front Brake Pad Life, HID Delamination

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I have an 06 CTS with the Sport Package. It has the regular rotors (JL9), but with "Performance Linings" (JE2). Last December, the dealership put new brake pads on the rear, and turned the rear rotors. I was surprised that they did the Rear, but not the Front. They said the fronts were fine...

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Hey, I'm thinking of getting new rims for my 1999 ETC and I'm wondering, how big I should go in size? I don't want to hurt my ride too much, but some ride harshness is fine. I've heard from Motor Trend that anything bigger than 18" will mess with your ABS, traction contro,l and all of that. If...
  13. Brake Shutter

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Just curious to if this is normal for this car or not. Have any of you taken the clover leafs on highways or taken any hard curve while braking and experienced the brakes giving a shutter feeling? Its almost as if the ABS is interacting. It only happens when taking sharp rounded turns at high...

    Hello, I have a 91 deVille sedan which has the ABS but no TCS (traction control). I read the Haynes manual and it says all that it is for controlling the TCS and ABS is a EBC that is mounted somewhere around the foot air outlet inside the car. So the question is can I order a new EBC for...
