2003 Cadillac CTS Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2003 Cadillac CTS based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
Vehicles with certain V6 engines may illuminate the Check Engine Light one or more of the following codes: P0011, P0014, P0021, P0024, P0341, P0346, P0336, or P0391. Our technicians tell us that some vehicles may require a powertrain control module (PCM) software update to correct this issue. Other vehicles may have excess camshaft end play on one or both cylinder heads which will need to be corrected using special procedures outlined by GM.
Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.
The rear axle pinion seal may leak causing fluid loss and possible internal rear end damage. Replacing the faulty seal will commonly correct this concern. Some 2005-2007 models have been recalled for this issue.
The steering wheel position sensor may fail, resulting in the service stability message being displayed.
The front and rear light bulbs are prone to premature failure. Our technicians tell us that the front bulbs can be very difficult to replace.
