Engine Mechanical problem
2001 Cadillac SLS V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 43000 miles
A couple of days ago I had to change the battery. At first I figured I had left a light on or something and just needed a jump. Well I got the jump and the went up to blockbuster down the street. After I turned the engine off I decided to try and start it. Well it was absolutely dead again! I got another jump and drover over to autozone and bought a new battery in which they charged me 140.00. Unbelievable! Well upon installing the battery we discovered that the positive metal connection the the cables screw into was broken from its insert. Thus no power.
However after turning the car back on, the Service engine light came on. Also the line that shows under the gear that the car is on, on the display panel, was no longer showing. In otherwords no indication as to which gear I was in besides the gear shifter itself.
Also it seems that the transmission was shifting just a little harder as well.
have the same problem?
