Hi my name is Carig.. I have recently purchased a 1997 Cadillac Seville STS. I have just noticed a sound under the hood. If I drive off pretty slow at around 15-20 mph i hear a kind of "electronic computer" sound. I really don't know how to explain it. It comes from the driver side under the hood. I can feel like a buzzing in the gas pedal when this happens. Then one day i noticed the info screen said "stabilzer engaged". I haven't seen this ever since. Do you have any idea of what this could be? BTW i live in Nassau County, in Glen Cove. Any good Cadillac Mechanic specialists around? And are there any performance parts for this car? Can't find anything on it


Thanks for all your help

Craig

Sounds like traction control, abs or stabilitrack to me. Were you accelerating and or cornering at the time?

Welcome aboard Craig..... Thanks for signing up....

Personally, I dont think its anything to worry about..... It sounds like for some reason traction got engaged, and it would give that sort of feeling..... I would describe the feeling as the engine getting ready to die (IE cutting out)...... Has it done it only once?? If not, can you get the car to do it while its parked...... That might be able to help us some....

Also, do you have any OBD codes......? Press OFF and WARMER at the same time (while the car is ON, but not engine running) and it will scroll through the codes... Post those and their interpritation (goto the thread in the lounge labeled HELPFUL CADDY LINKS) and then we should be able to tell what the deal is....... :)

Re: Codes

i hope all of these codes are old because i just got the car last week and i doubt the guy before me reset the codes. i will reset the codes tomorrow and pull them again to see what comes up... but if someone can do me the favor of getting explanations for the codes that i just pulled up

thank you

Re: Codes

You are the first member I have taken the time to interprit codes for!!!!! Consider yourself a first!! :D

From.....http://members.accessus.net/~090/awh/dtcobd2.html

P0300- Misfire detected.....
P0603 - Control Module Long Term Memory Reset
P1599 - Engine Stall or Near Stall Detected


C1243 - BPMV Pump Motor Stalled
B0533 - Fuel Sensor Open/Shorted To B+
B1983 - Device Power Circuit Low

I could keep going on, but most of these dont really seem to mean much.... Clear the codes and then see what you come up with....!
