I had that same problem and it took me forever to figure out what was wrong. You are probably using an aftermarket key as was I. The stupid little plastic/metal chip in the shaft of the key is for the security system. Sometimes if you insert the key and turn too fast it sets off the security system. To solve the problem go get another key made from a different key maker, they cost around $15-20. Or, insert the key slowly and turn the ignition slowly. Or go get a good key from the dealer, I've heard it may be ~$50 for this key but it should work the best. FYI I still just use my aftermarket key and just deal with the occasional no start wait 3 min ordeal. Good luck.

My cadillac 04 cts wont start. Thinks its the scurtiy feature. Any1 have a idea


Is the security light lit ? Car an pad lock symbol . If any of these are lit it is the anti-theft system . Does the engine crank over but won't start an run ? The anti-theft system will allow the engine to crank but not start , disables fuel injectors . If the anti-theft light is lit there are DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes stored in the theft deterrent module an or the ECM .
Does anything happen when you turn the key to the start position ?

98 Cadillac deville won't start,anti theft system has locked my car. What do I do to avoid spending more money?


Unless the vehicle has an after-market anti-theft system (in which case you will have to have it removed), the anti-theft system can be reset by placing the key in the driver door and turning it towards "unlock," then holding it there for 10 seconds or more.
If someone installed an after-market anti-theft system on the vehicle, you're pretty much on your own to disable it.

I put a new stater on my 1992 Cadillac Deville and the iginition still wont turn over.....can somebody tell me what else could be the problem...Thank you


These cars are equipped with an ANTI THEFT system. When this system starts to fail, it goes into antitheft mode and disables the starter, Look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY, If you see this light, then that is your problem. This link will help with that

Need to bybass security system to start car on 1992 cadillac sedan deville


Hello: To by-pass the security system you need to do the following; Take your key to radio shack have a knowledgeable sales person read the Resistance value of the resistor in your key(ignition) and sell you a resistor of that value. Under the drivers side dash there is a large electrical connector near the park brake assembly with two smaller connectors on each side. One of the smaller has two small white wires on one end. (these are the wires that come from the lock cylinder of the key cylinder) Wire the resistor in to these wires going to the connector (front of the car) NOT TO THE WIRES GOING TO THE STEERING COLUMN. This will allow the car to start asnd run but you will NOT have the protection of the anti theft of the system.

I cannot locate the starter relay on my 1992 cadillac deville


this is a security system problem most likely and has nothing to do with any relay. You may have a defective VATS module or a defective VATS key sensor or a defective key, is the little piece of wire still embedded in the shaft of the key? VATS stands for Vehicle Anti Theft.

1997 cadillac deville delagance - anti theft device


I've got a 97 deville d'elegance that has issues similar to these. Last year the red anti-theft light came on and the car wouldn't start-took it to the dealership and they replaced the PCM? (the main brain for the system) for $900...the guy told us the wiring was so corroded he didn't want to mess with it much. Today the message started flashing on the dash that says "anti-theft problem/ car may not restart" but it still turned over in the driveway a couple times so I am hoping I can reset it. The wiring system is jacked and will probably need to replace the wiring harness completely. Doubt its worth it. Not a secure feeling with 2 babies in the back seat in the middle of winter....
