Customer Question
I have an electrical...

I have an electrical problem with my 2008 STS. I replaced the radio, and now have the following systems not working:

Mechanic's Assistant: No, I use streaming services like Pandora.

Turn signals, sunroof, trunk opener, interior lights

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Cadillac. The Cadillac Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

Turn signals, sunroof, trunk opener, interior lights do not work

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Checked the fuses, all OK, and all have 12V

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Cadillac Mechanic should know about your Cadillac?

I have removed the radio for an upgrade

IF Factory Radio, are you sure it is "correct Part Number" for your 2008 STS?
IF Factory Radio, have you had GM Dealer Test?
