The dealers know about a problem with the batteries and will replace under warranty. The original batteries were defective. I just bought a 2006 CTS and after test driving the car the battery died and wouldnt restart. The dealer replaced the battery. You should not have to pay a dime.

Wont start and shows pic of car on dash with a lock through it

Sounds like the immobilizer is activated? Disconnect the battery for an hour and then reconnect it. It _should_ reset the alarm.

Mechanics changing a battery try to do it quickly, the ECM thinks someone is boosting the car. What they should do is use a couple of lengths of wire to keep the power to the car the whole time of swapping over the battery. That way power remains in the alarm system and immobilizer at all times.

I disconnected negative cable in 94 Toyota Corolla and when I reconnected neg. Cable the alarm wont shut off how do I reset it or shut off because car wont start. Please help asap. Thank you

Hi..I'm gonna assume your alarm is, pursuit etc. If that's the case make sure your key is off put the remote in your hand, put on your batt cable then hit your remote it should work. If not you should have a little.disarm pushbutton inside the car. Its usually hidden on the kik panal or under dash. Hook up batt.turn on ign hit button if eiether of those don't work find out what kind of alarm and get back with me.

2006 Cadillac STS driver side door lock doesn't activate when I approach the car (as it's supposed to). Key fob also doesn't activate the lock or unlock features. All other doors and trunk operate...

It actually sounds like the micro switch in the drivers door that reads the key fob is bad, if the key works and the fob works on the other doors and the trunk. You will most likely need to have the door handle replaced, they're not very expensive by themselves but it can be a lot of work.

My key fob has quit working and it tells me no key fob detected. My car is a 2006 Caddie STS. Both fobs have stopped working.

Mine did the same thing. I put the fob into the reprogramming slot located in the center console and was able to get it started by leaving the in the slot. Hope it works for you.

try removing your key fob and replacing the battery .it sounds like its a security issue and the body control has locked you out and is keeping the key too.replacing the battery in the key fob should restore all.if not you will need a body control module and has to be programmed by a dealer.
