2004 Cadillac CTS Problems

Reverse Light Cover Panel comes loose and falls off

On the 2003's there is a plastic panel that covers the backup lights...it's about 1'X 3'...I guess it's common for these to just blow off. We just purchased the 03 CTS with only 41000 miles and had driven it for about 2 weeks when we noticed the panel was gone,exposing the backup lights. We choose to fix it right instead of trying to find a replacement at the salvage yard (since it seems to be design flaw because they about non exsistant). S...

Haven't touched the coils...still sputters (1 answer)

Car is still sputtering. Recently found a crack in the valve cover which is made of plastic. Tried to patch it. Did a smoke test but didn't see a leak anywhere. What could this be? Still no warning or engine light

2004 Cadillac CTS Recalls

Fuel Pump Failure And Leakage

The engine may stall and fuel may leak due to overheating of the electrical terminals in the fuel pump module, resulting in the melting of the flange material. Dealers will replace the fuel module and fuel tank jumper wiring harness free of charge to resolve the concern.

The Engine May Stall

The weight on the key ring and/or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine and increasing the risk of a crash. In the event of a crash, if the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy as expected. Dealers will provide two replacement key rings, and vehicles with slotted keys will receive key inserts to correct this concern. Note: Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring.

Bought the car new ten years ago and have not had any problems until last week (Friday the 13th)..was about 20 miles from home for an appt. and the ignition would not work. The key was stuck. A young man saw what was going on and seemed to know what to do and got the key out. The car started and when I got it in my garage the key was hopelessly stuck again. We are waiting for it to be towed...
