2013 Cadillac ATS: Another Electrical Gremlin

January 24, 2013

2013 Cadillac ATS

Along with the inaccurate headlight malfunction warning that both Walton and I have experienced, our 2013 Cadillac also has another electrical gremlin. During normal use, the backlight for the PRND next to the shifter keeps fading in an out. This is happening whether the car is in motion or not and when the automatic headlights are on or off.

At first I just thought I was having a stroke, but then another editor here confirmed that the lights were indeed failing.
