Thank you gnguru, the crankshaft sensor was the problem. Since I didn't have the money to put it on at the dealer that was requesting 500.00 I went to my local auto zone and picked the bran new part up for 75.00 with tax and my husband installed it.

I finally found a low mileage 1999 Catera to purchase that I adore. My problem is the interior lights have started staying on. Any experience out there what would case the interior lights to stay on while the car is running and after the engine is shut off? Luckily the power down feature still works because if you come back later everything is off and so far it is not draining ... Read More

My son is on the verge of buying a 1999 Cadillac Catera. Please respond soon! Very concerned.
I ALSO JUST PURCHASED MY 1999 CATERA , AND I HAVE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM! THE PROBLEM WAS THAT THE HAND CLUTCH (WHERE YOU PUT YOUR CAR INTO GEAR) IT WAS STICKING. SO WHEN YOU PARK YOUR CAR JUST MAKE SURE TO PUSH IT DOWN ALL THE WAY AND YOUR KEY WILL COME OUT. YOU STILL MAY WANT TO TAKE IT TO A CADILLAC DEALER AND HAVE IT CHECKED OUT!
Im having the same exact problems with my 1999 Cadillac Catera Sport. Did you find anything out on how to fix these problems?
