Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases, I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

The issue with the fuel gauge is a common fault on this model.The fuel level sender in the fuel tank itself fails internally and causes this issue here with it needing to be replaced.I have seen this fail several times in the past before needing to replace it.

The fault with the shift indicator lights not working, is the transmission operating and shifting properly?

Is it the lights that display the entire shift positions as well as back lighting?

Let me know, thanks, Pete.

all ights in the shifter... Indicator and back lights are out
Cadillac Mechanic: Pete, Cadillac Technician replied 7 months ago

O.k., since the back lights and indicator are out this indicates the fault is with the shift indicator module itself.This is the entire indicator assembly.

You want to remove it and unplug it and test the yellow wire for around 12 volts DC/power and the black wire and black/white wire for ground.If you have these signals then the shift indicator module needs to be replaced.

1. Pry the rear of the shifter trim plate (1) up with a blunt tool to release the trim from the console.
2. Pull upward on the trim plate (1).
