You would be better off going to a Cadillac Dealership and paying the diagnostic fee. Spend $65 to find out what the real problem is rather than replacing parts until the car runs properly. This way you get it from a Cadillac Technician. Once you know what the problem is you can decide on where you want to have it service. Because you are paying for the diagnostics you shouldn't feel obligated to have it done at a Dealership. Please leave me good feedback if you feel this has helped.

I had the same problem with my STS. Go back through your programing menu and "check" remote start again. Somehow, mine defaulted to not allowing remote start feature. It was good to go as soon as I re-programmed it.

SOURCE: I bought a used 2007
If you have check engine light ON in this model, i would advise you to seek a dealer ASAP. as there could be many reasons. He would need to diagnose and scan the car. On the basis of that, he could tell the exact diagnosis. However, as you want more details, so below is the most probable cause ( again you need to get the car scanned ) :-
Subject: LP1, LY7 MIL/DTCs P0008, P0009, P0016, P0017, P0018 or P0019 (Replace Primary Drive and Both Secondary Drive Timing Chains) Models: 2007 Buick LaCrosse/Allure 2007 Cadillac CTS, SRX, STS with 2.8L HFV6 or 3.6L HFV6 Engine (VINs T, 7 -- RPOs LP1, LY7)
Attention: The bulletin does not apply for 2008 model year 2.8L HFV6 or 3.6L HFV6 Engines. This bulletin is being revised to include additional information on model years for the third design roller-type chain, add an Attention statement that this bulletin does not apply to the 2008 model year and update the Parts Information. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 07-06-01-013A (Section 06 -- Engine/Propulsion System).
Some customers may comment on the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) being illuminated. Technicians may find the following Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) stored:
• DTC P0008 : Engine Position System Performance Bank 1 • DTC P0009 : Engine Position System Performance Bank 2 • DTC P0016 : Crankshaft Position (CKP) - Intake Camshaft Position (CMP) Correlation Bank 1 • DTC P0017: Crankshaft Position (CKP) - Exhaust Camshaft Position (CMP) Correlation Bank 1 • DTC P0018 : Crankshaft Position (CKP) - Intake Camshaft Position (CMP) Correlation Bank 2 • DTC P0019 : Crankshaft Position (CKP) - Exhaust Camshaft Position (CMP) Correlation Bank 2 This condition may be caused by stretched primary drive and both secondary drive timing chains.
Refer to SI for the follow diagnostic information if only one of the following DTCs are set:
• DTC P0008 • DTC P0009 • DTC P0016 • DTC P0017 • DTC P0018 • DTC P0019If there are more than one of the above mention DTCs set, inspect for stretched timing chains. Refer to Camshaft Timing Drive Components Cleaning and Inspection (Fourth Design) in SI.
It may take several thousand miles/kilometers of use before the timing chains begin to stretch. Inspect both the primary drive and both secondary drive timing chains for the following:
• Binding links • Loose links • Loose pinsIf any of the chains are stretched, replace the primary drive and both secondary drive timing chains only. DO NOT replace any of the other timing chain component parts.
Important: When ordering the timing chains, please be sure to also order all appropriate gaskets and seals needed to perform the repair properly
Timing Chain, Primary
Timing Chain, Secondary
For vehicles repaired under warranty, use:
Chain, Camshaft Timing -- Replace
Use Published Labor Operation Time
If the oil is not leaking from the engine ,it is being burned by the engine.This is common in a lot of the Cadillacs.most of the time the piston rings are stuck with carbon build up & cleaning the upper combustion with top engine cleaner will take care of it.
There are no recalls on timing chain stretch or camshafts for this vehicle at this time.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

You replaced the ignition switch, but also faulty ignition lock cylinder can cause this.
There is an antitheft sensor in the key lock cylinder. If this sensor fails then this will happen. If the ignition switch fails and the computer does not see any movement in this sensor when the ignition switch cuts off then it will also think that the vehicle is being stolen.
----------- You got the ignition switch replaced, but also get the sensor checked in the key lock cylinder, try spraying wd-40 in the key lock cylinder and insert the key in the key lock and turn it on/off few times so the spray gets inside towards the sensor.--------- Then check.If its not helping then get the sensor removed out and checked.--------- Its not starting , the possibilities are weak battery, weak starter, faulty switch, this are most common possibilities, which you have already replaced.------------ But sometimes new brand parts comes out faulty, get the battery, starter and ignition switch tested by meter, get the battery load tested at local car garage.If the battery is fine, it will complete the load test, otherwise it will fail.If the battery fails, that means battery is new but still faulty.--------- Many a times removing /disconnecting negative terminal of battery for 15 minutes then reconnecting the terminal resets the inside system and everything starts working.This is reset procedure, also try this.---------- But if still you notice this same problem, and all this basic possibilities like, battery, starts ignition switch, ignition lock cylinder, wiring's etc etc checked out ok, then possibility is faulty ecm( ecm means cars computer).The ecm is sometimes not letting the engine to start.Its not detecting that key is inserted in the key lock.Its not passing the signal to battery or starter to let it start.--------- So ecm needs to be checked and replaced.--------This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
