2006 Cadillac SRX Owner Comments

problem #7

  • 152,076 miles


When I turn on the car the gas gauge and the temp gauge do not move. The security and no traction warning lights stay on. When I drive the car on the street steering is sluggish, the trans rpms are high, sometimes the car goes to the left while driving. On the radio there it reads anti theft system hit button to clear. When I turn off the car the key will not come out of ignition and I have to use screwdriver to push a button in steering column to release it. One week everything worked great, no warning lights, gauges worked, no high rpms on trans and steering was fine and the key came out of the ignition and nothing on radio about anti theft sys. But everything is not working again and now engine light is on.

Takata recall I have a Cadillac Srx 2006 with very low mileage and there is definitely an issue with the timing chain setup as well as the vehicles head lighting errors, from my research this is definitely a fault from the company design and could have caused injury or even death

Cadillac Srx from years 2004-2009 has a problem with burnt out front turn signal/running light bulbs. To change an $8 bulb cost about $150-200 because of the amount of work to access the bulb. I feel that because this is a turn signal (safety) problem GM should have fixed the problem for free or made an engineering change which they didn't. the web shows numerous complaints from Srx owners who have changed the bulbs numerous times and gave up and now have no front turn signals. Most who have fixed the problem say that the bulb runs too hot cracking the ac-delco socket(19120947). The last time I replaced the bulbs one burnt out in a week. My vehicle is an 2004 Cadillac Srx AWD 3.6 L 6 cylinder engine and as 10/3/2004 my mileage is 40065. Bulbs have burnt out 4 times.
