Question Answered: I've been having problems with my battery draining ,by 4 amps? What can this be?

Owner, The draw has to be isolated by checking the amp draw while removing loads,
( pulling fuses ), first, check glove box, ash tray, & under hood and trunk lights.
The Body Control Module is a frequent culprit, also aftermarket radios which may not allow the BCM to " go to sleep ". These are JUST suggestions, a professional technician would probably be your best solution.
Question Answered: Multiple recalls through the years for defective EGR lights. Should I be worried
September 09, 2016, 06:54 AM
Owner, EGR ( Exhaust Gas Recirculation ) is an emissions system which helps to control combustion temperatures, therefore limiting the creation of Oxides of Nitrogen in the vehicle exhaust. When the EGR system is not working, most vehicles also have a slight decrease in performance and fuel economy, as well as an increase in pollutants from the exhaust. There may be a fix at your dealer involving a later program which can be installed in your vehicle's Processor, which may be a no-charge procedure. If you have tried multiple times to have this issue resolved, I would suggest an alternate Dealer Service Department.

Question Answered: How to fix P0335 and P0727 error codes for Cadillac Catera 2000?
July 22, 2016, 05:19 AM
Owner: P0335 MAY mean the crank position sensor is failing, however, throwing the part at it may only frustrate you. Lab scope the crank sensor signal to make a positive diagnosis. P0727
is transmission related, but may go away if the crank sensor code is resolved, so address the P0335 code first. Good Luck !
