I went to keylessride.com and looked up your vehicle and the remotes need to be programmed by a locksmith or dealer and being a locksmith myself I know that my prices are generally lower than dealers

SOURCE: Can't shift into reverse ( manual transmission )

I have the same problem on my 2005 cts. The shifter fork has two rubber bushings that attach at the transmission that break or give way. I assume they did this for a softer feel and to avoid vibration but it leads to the selector not engaging well when you go the extreme direction of reverse on the shifter as there is too much deflection. I replaced the bushings with washers as spacers and it seems to work as a "McGyver" fix. I do intend to get the parts needed from Cadillac to restore it to factory standards. Hopefully they have the parts. To fix the problem you have to go under the car. To get good access you have to disconnect the exhaust and the driveshaft. I did it without this and just tormented my poor hands but I wasn't willing to do all the other work while in my driveway. You simply take the clip holding the fork shaft onto the transmission selector end off and slide the small shaft out. I also took off the shifter side of the fork to study the thing a bit better. That takes a 13mm and a small allen wrench, 4.5 or 3/16, can't remember. Then replace the bushings or do as I did and stack some washers so as to get rid of the slack between the inside of the fork and the gear selector on the transmission. Assemble and try. If you have as good dexterity and tenacity at your fingertips as I do, you'll curse the day you attempted doing this without taking out all the other stuff. If you don't, take out all the other stuff to make room for your hands. The space is very confined. Good luck.

SOURCE: Has no reverse. Will go

Your transmission is bad. You need to replace it soon if you are still driving it. At any moment you may lose forward and only have reverse (trust me it happened to me and I was dumb enough to drive it seven blocks back home in reverse).

Won t go in reverse


Make sure the trans fluid is filled to specs! That may be your whole problem. If u only are running w 13% trans fluid you are asking for trouble w your trans. GET IT SERVICED TOO BEFORE INSTALLING FRESH FLUID! (that's how I would word it too my csrs)

2004 Cadillac CTS won't go into gear -


I will quess that there is a 90% chance, you will have to
pull the transaxle & have it rebuilt

From here forward, you change your trans fluids every three
years ,along with the power steering.That will fail next.
