2006 Cadillac CTS Problems

The Check Engine Light With Code: P0011, P0014, P0021, P0024, P0341, P0346, P0336, and/or P0391

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.

Rear Axle Pinion Seal May Leak

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.

Check Engine Light Due to Gas Cap Issue

Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.

2006 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.

 

GM Recalls 2005-2007 Cadillac CTS Models Because Front Airbag May Become Disabled

General Motors is recalling certain 2005-2007 Cadillac CTS vehicles. The front passenger seat occupant sensor may become damaged, disabling the passenger airbag and illuminating the airbag warning light. If the airbag does not deploy when needed, there may be an increased risk of injury to the front seat passenger. Dealers will replace the front passenger sensing system free of charge.

2006 Cadillac CTS Reviews

I have a 2006 CTS with 95,000 miles. It has been burning through oil like crazy. Is this normal?
Had to replace my brakes at about 50,000 miles, ABS, air bag, stability lights all on.
