When I try to start the car the message reads Starting Disabled, then Remove Key and it will not start! I have tried the put the door key in the lock, lock the door with the key, wait 15 minutes but it doesn't solve the problem. I have also tried the post trick with the battery, no luck there either. Can you please suggest something besides towing it to a Cadilac dealer?
Thanks so much!

Re: Car will not start
Call your local locksmith and have them come out and check your key and the ignition cylinder it is probably the wire going from the ignition cylinder is broke and it will be a lot cheaper using a locksmith instead of going to the dealer, Replace cylinder will end your problem

It just said starting disabled , nothing else ?
Starting Disabled (Due To Electronic Throttle Control)
Starting Disabled (Due To Theft System)
No other lights ?
Service Vehicle Soon , check engine , security ?
Reduced Engine Power message ?
use the ignition switch master key. turn the ignition switch for ten minutes until LED ignition warning light go off.then turn off ignition switch wait 5 seconds then try to start engine. if this procedure starts your engine have dealership or garage to check out theft security system.
THe key has a code in it that is read by the engine immobiliser. BY removing the key and reinserting you are giving the immobiliser a chance to read the code again. Give it a try. THe battery in your key may be getting low and needs replacing.
I've got an even cheaper and easier solution, instead of buying a new cylinder, find that plug and snip the orange wires going to the old cylinder.Then remove the resistor chip from the key and solder each of the the wires to each side. this will fool the car into thinking the correct resistor chip is in place, allowing you to use the original key or any copies with or without resistor chips. i just did this to my caddy and it roared to life! :)
did you replace the fuse.if so try to get the alarm reset location,it could be in the stupidist place like my pathfinder you have to put the key in the tailgate and turn it to glass side and hold it for 20 seconds.and then hit the hidden reset switch under the rear carpet.
I just recently was troubled with the same problem it can only be fixed by changing the ignition switch. you have to get the key and switch together (dealer only) any GM dealer will be able to help with that then remover the steering wheel and get to work or pay a mechanic to do that for you but it will solve the problem you see there is a small white wire that came apart sucks but that's what happened .
