2010 Cadillac CTS Problems
Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.
The passenger seat sensor may fail causing the SRS (airbag) light to illuminate. This problem has turned into a recall on some vehicles. Please contact you local dealer to see if your particular car is included. For more information on this recall, please click here»
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.
2010 Cadillac CTS Questions
Has had 2 boosters and sensors put on and warning light still comes on. System has been reset.
The check engine light is on. After getting motor started, it seems to run properly. Maybe with exception when first started cold. But mainly after adding fuel. Is this a vapor sensor? where and which one?
thank you, floridabells
Appears to be leaking between the trunk lid and the weatherstrip (molding) under the rear window.
2010 Cadillac CTS Recalls
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.
The lock nuts securing the toe link portion of the rear suspension may loosen and cause a clanking type noise. In some cases, the toe link could separate and cause the rear wheel to turn in and out uncontrollably. This can result in a loss of vehicle control, which increases the risk of a crash. Toe links will be inspected and replaced as necessary and new lock nuts will be installed. At this time, there is no scheduled start date for this recall. The GM recall number is 11029.
The instrument panel and glove compartment may not be manufactured to proper crash protection standards. Dealers will replace the glove compartment assembly and in some vehicles modify the instrument panel structure free of charge to resolve the concern.
