    Hi there thanks for the input.I figuered it out. I pulled the ecu fuse out and it released the lock, howerver the problem was still there. I locked my car completely and then put the fuse back in. Unlocked it and it worked. I think we are putting these dealerships out of bussiness.

This is a Pass Key anti theft problem, do the following to reset the system, if this doesn't work u will have to take it to the dealer, they are the only ones with the test gear to find and fix the problem

PASS LOCK RESET GM CARS 1999 UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key.

My key is stuck in the ignition of my 2006 cadillac cts


2005 CTS 3.6 Dead battery, key stuck, service anti theft and nothing happens when you turn key, Ttried everything, ECM reset, key memory reset, charged battery to 12.7 volts, locked door w remote and opened w key, anyway you get the idea. After 3 days of online reading and trying, THIS IS WHAT WORKED, 1. put key into on position 2. removed sarter relay from front fuse panel 3. jumped 1st pin closest to fender and passenger seat with pin that is closest to motor and front fender. I used a paper clip and just made contact long enough for car to start. ran car for five minutes and took key out and everything went back to normal. then I took car to advance auto parts to have engine light reset. if car does not go back to normal you have ECM (car computer) failure. video on YouTube under "no crank, no start"

The key wont turn in the ignition


Make sure the steering column is not locked and the shifter is in park. Sometimes, you can push the shifter up and get it unlocked. If these do not work, have you noticed a security light or alarm light on the dash? It may be in security mode, which would lock up the ignition. If that checks out, you will probably have to change the ignition module. If you have a question, please let me know. I am here to help. Thanks for using Fixya.

Theft system locked


To get the key out; look under the steering wheel for a plastic flat head screw. untwist it and then push the spring in and your key will be free. Then, go to your fuse box and remove the main fuses and you will hear the doors unlock when the system reset itself. Plug them back in and start your car. This just happened to me... seems the only things that were working were the navigation screen, headlights, fog lights, and reading light on the inside. Dash board was all dark except the engine light.
