Dash lights not coming on

Asked by Jan 27, 2016 at 08:59 PM about the 2013 Cadillac CTS 3.6L Premium AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2013 Cadillac CTS Coupe. Sometimes, when I start the car, the dash
lights do not illuminate and the area where the radio stations and navigation
tools display is totally dark. At first, it was just for a few minutes, but today they
didn't come on for about 10 minutes after I started driving, and then they came
on, and then went off again. How can I ever replicate this for the dealer to fix?

Depending on when your Cadillac was placed into service and if you have less than 36,000 miles on it you may still be covered by the new car warranty. Talk to your local Cadillac Dealer and hopefully get it fixed for free! HTH. - Jim

Transient anomalies that generate intermittent problems are difficult for the dealer to find unless they know how to duplicate it. See if you can narrow it down. Does it only happen when it's cold out? Or after the car has been off for more than 8 hours? Or some other condition? The more information you can provide, the easier it will be for the mechanic to duplicate.
