    martin04 - 2000 Cadillac Escalade - Preventive Maintenance - 7/1/2012
    I have a 2000 escalade that has been pulling or tugging at highway speeds of 60 or over
    It only feels like something pulls on it or tugs on it when on the highway. Could it be that it needs the transmission fluid changed? Or what else can cause this ?

      Any type of misfire (p0305 = misfiring on cylinder 5) can ruin a catalytic converter in short time. You have codes for both cylinder banks for Converter efficiency below threshold. You need to have the vehicle properly diagnosed to see what is causing the misfiring. The misfiring has most likely ruined the converters already due to the excessive heat created in the converters from the misfiring.They may not be clogged yet , but they are most likely heat damaged, which is why you have the p0420 and p0430 codes.

      Are you saying the dealer pulled trouble codes P0420, P0430 the first time? How many miles on the car, and are you the original owner?

    Service engine light is on,how do i turn it off?

      Remove the negative battery for a few minutes and it will reset the service engine light. Some car radio models have a code ( anti-thief ) and it will need to re-enter the code in order to run the radio.

    Brake Lights not working
    Turn signals work, Hazard light work, but no light when brakes applied. I suspect the sending switch, Where is that located, or do I need to buy a Chilton manual

      Your brake switch should be activated by the brake pedal arm, look under the dash. At the brake switch the orange wire voltage, should be hot all the time. When the switch is activated, the white wire becomes hot. Use a jumper wire between the two wires, the brake lites should work. If the brake lites work, I think the brake switch is faulty. If it still doesn't work, the problem is elsewhere. The brake lite is wired through the turn signal switch.

      u can head to your auto parts store and buy a ac recharge kit preferably one with a color bar guage, so you don't overcharge the system...for under 30 bucks...and they are consumer friendly.
