2011 Cadillac Escalade Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2011 Cadillac Escalade based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
The power door lock actuators may become slow to operate or stop working completely and require replacement.
The throttle position sensor (TPS) on the Cadillac Escalade is notorious for failure which causes:
- Check engine light
- Reduced Power message
- OBD trouble code P2135
This issue is related to the throttle position sensor, and can be caused by faulty wiring to the TPS, bad connection at the TPS, or a failed TPS.
To correct this issue, the wiring harness, connector, and throttle position sensor must be inspected, tested, and/or replaced. The most common cause is a faulty TPS.
The inside and outside door handles are prone to breaking.
The rear window defogger may stop working due to a wire terminal broken off of the rear glass. Our technicians tell us that terminal can be reattached using a special glue or silver solder.
