Question Answered: abs brake light come on anti skid light esplight come on can''t shift to drive
October 06, 2014, 08:00 AM
The ABS and Anti Skid lamps should not cause your vehicle to not be able to shift into drive, if this is what is going on it may be an input from the brake switch or something BCM (Body control module) related that is preventing. See if you have brake lights with the KOEO, if not this is likely what needs to be repaired. If you can still not get out of park and is a center counsel shift there is usually a bypass slot to release so that you can drive the vehicle in for service. BE CAREFUL doing so as you may not have brake lamps. If you have any further questions or would like to schedule an appointment please call. -Your Curt's Service Team, 248-545-0500
Question Answered: Back up lights don't come on
October 06, 2014, 07:51 AM
This vehicle has lighting that is controlled by the BCM body control module, could be related to a sensor commanding the reverse lights, or a voltage, bulb or wiring condition. If you check the bulbs, contacts and fuse (which does all of the lighting in the rear) that will probably be all that you can check without diagnostic equipment. Please feel free to give us a call for an appointment or any further questions. Your Curt's Service Team 248-545-0500

Question Answered: Car will not go more than 5 miles per hour?
August 04, 2014, 05:30 AM
There are many different things that can cause this "symptom" of not going over 5 miles per hour. Does the engine run strong and RPM's high, if so this would potentially indicate a transmission or drive line problem. If the engine will barely run and has no power that would be an engine problem. This vehicle is a hybrid Cadillac and Saab platform and requires some specialty tooling to perform allot of the repairs. Whomever helps you with this issue please make sure that they are equipped with the proper tooling to do so. If you have any further questions or concerns please feel free to give us a call. Initial diagnosis would start at $189. Sincerely, Your Curt's Service Team 248-545-0500
Question Answered: When pumping gas it would only allow me to fill it with small amounts at a time?
June 13, 2014, 05:00 AM
I would recommend having the vehicle scanned first. The check engine light may be related to the not wanting to fill up when fueling concern your having as well. The relation could be in the evaporative emissions system. There is what is called a vent and a purge valve that are supposed to allow fuel vapors to be contained and when vented through the charcoal canister and when purged back into the intake to burn again. Just do not clear the code as that will not fix anything, but will remove all the data that a repair shop could use to help diagnose the problem if it is an intermittent issue. If you need any further help please feel free to give us a call. Your Curt's Service Team Specialized Automotive Repair Since 1981 248-545-0500
Question Answered: The radiator fan is not working properly causing the car to overheat in idle.
May 30, 2014, 08:58 AM
On some models there is a variable fan speed control module that is common to go bad. You need a factory scan tool to command the fan on all speeds and verify voltage in and out of the module to the fan motor. If you need help please feel free to call or stop by Curt's Service.

Question Answered: Two questions, 1st Heat/AC blower fan. 2nd, Temp gauge. Please see detail
January 15, 2014, 11:17 AM
1st, If you vehicle is equipped with automatic Climate Control (you set the temp digitally and the fan automatically adjusts)the speed is controlled by a blower speed control module. This could be the problem, or the climate control head or temp sensor could be commanding the fan to falsely run high all the time. Would recommend to take somewhere that has factory diagnosis scan tools to communicate to the BCM to identify the failure. 2nd, Temp gauge jumping from hot to cold and a smell of coolant sounds like a low cooling system that is boiling, when system is cool recommend to verify proper level. If level is good it could be a circulation problem. Again recommend to have a diagnosis performed, not a straight forward symptom. If you have any further questions please feel free to give us a call or stop by to visit. Your Curt's Service Team 248-545-0500
Question Answered: Check engine light comes on intermittently
January 13, 2014, 03:24 PM
As stated earlier verify that the oil level is good, current on oil change interval and check your receipt of last oil change and make sure that the proper weight / viscosity was used. If all those are accurate you would want to have a qualified technician perform a diagnosis so that you don't start replacing unneeded components. We are local, if you have any other questions please stop by for a free consultation or give a call if you have any further questions. Your Curt's Service Team 248-545-0500
Question Answered: my wiperblade on a c280 not working,you can hear the power when you turn on the
December 23, 2013, 07:53 AM
This wiper set up on your vehicle is different than most. It has a wiper motor, linkage and a pivot assm. Usually if you can hear and see a slight movement it is that the motor is working but restricted by a seized pivot assm. Sometimes you can remove, clean corrosion (aluminum oxidation) and lubricate and get working. other times it is too deteriorated and needs to be replaced. Also be warned that the wiper motor has been "stressed" by this restriction in movement and can become damaged. If it is still working after freed up it may have a reduced life due to the stress and die out soon after. This can all be evaluated by a qualified technician. If you have any further questions feel free to stop by and have it professionally inspected. Sincerely, Your Curt's Service Team 248-545-0500
Question Answered: Gas gauge dose not read correct
October 28, 2013, 06:11 AM
All of the reply's are accurate. Your fuel tank sender may not be reading 100% accurate, but is close enough. You never want to run your tank too low anyway as the gas in the tank also acts keeps your fuel pump cool and lubricated, when you run your tanks close to empty and there is not enough fuel to help perform those functions helps in the premature failure of fuel pumps. I don't think that you currently have a problem, but run your tank consistently below 5 gallons and you soon may! As always, any further questions please feel free to call or stop by.
