1997 Cadillac Catera 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 139000 miles
just bought a 97 catera with 139k. The turn signals do not work, and if you turn on the hazard lights (which don't work either), the temp gauge and gas gauge stop working and the needle goes to zero, as well as the ac stops blowing when the hazards are turned on. But, with the hazards on, if you hit the turn signal, the hazard lights will then work. Turn the hazards off again and you get your ac back and gauges back.
the fuse for the flashers is good, so is the flasher relay. I swapped in 2 new ones from autozone to make sure it wasn't an issue with that relay.
a few days later, it got worse. Now the ac won't turn on at all, and the hazard/turn signal lights don't come at all now under any combination of hazard light button and turn signal positions. The gas gauge and temp gauge both do not work at all now. Traction control button doesn't wok now either. If you try using the turn signals a few times, a warning light on the dash pops up, it's basically an exclamation mark inside a circle that kinda looks the the sun. Same thing happens when you push the "sport shift" button on the shifter.
also, there is a button next to the shifter with a snowflake on it to start the car out in 2nd gear for winter driving, and I think this is stuck on now because the car acts like it's stuck in 2nd gear. Pushing the button does nothing.
any ideas here? I replaced the BCM(number on the new BCM matched the original perfectly) and I still have all the same issues.
have the same problem?
