Question about 2009 Cadillac STS

1 Answer

How do I turn off the hazard lights on 09 Cadillac STS when the hazard button is stuck?

I have pushed the hazard button repeatedly and have tapped it - it does not spring back up. I have shut the car off and restarted hoping it would reboot and allow the button to work - not. I have now exposed the rear fuse panels under the seats, but do not know which fuse will turn off the hazards. Help!

There is a recall on the GM light system so check it out . The hazard light switch basically just connects both side indicators together. For a short term fix see if you can pull the connector of the back of the switch.

Valve tap cause

Most engines now use hydraulic lifters and they can leak a little, this causes space between then lifter and the push rod. This results in a tapping noise that goes away when they get warm or fill back up.

Indicators only repeat on nearside

Swap the bulbs both front and back from left to right. If the problem remains on the same side, take a bit of sand paper and clean the contacts, both center and body contacts to make sure you have good current flow.
Your problem is often caused by a bulb that is only slightly below spec, or a bad contact. You will not see the difference between a below spec lamp and one that is OK, but it can be measured with a good Ohm meter.

Hazard lghts

? are you sure no one pushed the Button on teh dash that activates the Hazard lights?
Also do you happen to have dual Power sliding doors?
I have a Chrysler T&C and my hazard lights are set to activate when either side power sliding door is activated, if you lights are activated when the doors and not in operation and no one has bumped the hazard button on the dash then only other thing I can think is that the relay that activates the lights is in Dysfunction mode.
Hope this helsp somehow.

Reset tire pressure sensor

My work van is a e-series 2011 cargo / work van, the way to reset the tire pressure on it is too push the hazard lights button a few times, may 5 or 6 times pretty quickly when the van is in park and running, the horn will honk and and then you stop pushing the hazard button and wait for a few minutes and the horn will honk agian and the tire pressure light will go out, i dont know if this resets the tires pressure sensor, but the light on the dash goes out, on my van it comes back on after i restart the van , so I am guessing that the sensor on my van is bad. but its worth a shot on your car.

The 2002 windstar engine died I tried to start it i smelt gas van tried to start almost did then someone found the fuel reset button located in back pushed down we tapped on side of it it finally came back...

Lrt's verify it is the guel system before going further. Do this.
On the injector fuel rail, under the hood, There is a fitting that should be capped. Remove the cap and you will see something that looks like a tire valve core. Better known as a schraeder valve. Depressing the valve will permit bleeding air out of the lines. We not only want to bleed out the air, but verifying the fuel pump is working is our main objective. With the key on, listen for the fuel pump working. A hum near or at the fuel tank. Fuel should come out of the valve noticeably. Try to avoid getting fuel all over everything which will cause a fire hazard.The fuel cap should be removed and reinstalled. I hope this helps, if results are poor, Let me know and we can go into another direction Don't forget to screw the cap back onto the bleed fitting. Thanks for using fix-ya. _N_

Good Evening. Let's start this out and it is going to sound wierd. Push your hazard button let them flash once then push it back in. Try your turn signals. They will probably work. What the problem is it is in the hazard switch (which is also your turn signal flasher and hazard flasher. Most are under a recall. I hope this helps, and if you have more questions please let me know.

I have an 04 s4 and recently the horn goes off and gets stuck in that orinentation. it wont shut off unless i pull the horn fuse or battery lead. when the horn gets stuck on the hazards also come on n stay...

methinks a stray wire in aftermarket alarm system. Most horns are negative switched (ie they are operated by earthing a wire on the steering column) and would not interfere with positive-switched items such as the hazard lights. Does your car have an aftermarket alarm?
