2013 Cadillac Escalade Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2013 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.
It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.
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 air conditioning compressor may develop an abnormal noise and require replacement. We recommend that whenever an AC compressor is being replaced for a noise condition, a filter kit should be installed to prevent any metal particles in the system from damaging the new compressor.
