============================

codes are meaningless without their DEFINITIONS -
there are THOUSANDS - and no one has them all memorized -

go here for the best list of Cadillac code definitions -

also include whether the codes are C-Current or H-History -

----------------------------------------------

some history of this car might be helpful -

everything happened at the same time?
car sat for a long time?
flood damage?
accidents?
stolen recovery?
just got the car?

well - IF you don't feel qualified to work on these issues yourself -
you'll either be on a REAL QUICK learning curve in AUTO REPAIR 101 -
OR you'll be paying a qualified mechanic around $100/hr to track down the problems -

YES - we can offer some help and guidance -
but YOU must have the willingness and a few tools -

throwing parts at it - and HOPING something sticks
is the WORST - and MOST expensive - "solution" to fixing a car -

I’m gonna do the vats bypass
WHY?
look at the CURRENT codes and their definitions -
THOSE are the problems -
says nothing about VATs -

as for the BCM -
get a spray can of ELECTRICAL CONTACT CLEANER -
pull the connectors apart - flush out BOTH ends -
then carefully inspect each connecting pin for evidence of dirt/corrosion -

OK - BUT - it is a HISTORY code - meaning it WAS a problem at some time in the past -
BUT - it hasn't happened again - and is NOT a problem today -
