Question about 1995 Cadillac Eldorado

1 Answer

Dash reads start disabled;due to theft sysytems;wait three minut

I bought the car two weeks ago Three days after I bought it the alarm goes off whenever I open the door. So I take the theft fuse out to stop the alarm. The dealer says "he didn't know the car had an alarm". Now the car won't start the dash reads start disabled; due to theft system; remove key from ignition; wait three minutes. Dash counts down then says start car. I try to start the car and it reads the same thing.

Did you replace the fuse.if so try to get the alarm reset location,it could be in the stupidist place like my pathfinder you have to put the key in the tailgate and turn it to glass side and hold it for 20 seconds.and then hit the hidden reset switch under the rear carpet.

For the pass weeek my security light has been blinking Know when i try starting the car it continues to say starting disable due to theft system. will not start at all now. and continues to say wait three...

You will need to look at your manual on steps required to reset your car alarm security system or either contact your car dealer or your auto club technical advice center if you have such membership. As a general rule, since this is an anti-theft protection device, unless you are know to the car dealership or mechanic, they will not give you the information until they can positively identified you! It is a real necessary 'pain', but persevere as you will not be able to start your car again until the alarm is reset. Hope it helps!

Cadillac seville won't start

I've got an even cheaper and easier solution, instead of buying a new cylinder, find that plug and snip the orange wires going to the old cylinder.Then remove the resistor chip from the key and solder each of the the wires to each side. this will fool the car into thinking the correct resistor chip is in place, allowing you to use the original key or any copies with or without resistor chips. i just did this to my caddy and it roared to life! :)

Changed the starter, theft deteriant wont let it start

First thing to try is another key, after waiting 3 minutes.. The chip in your key might be unreadable or dirty.

It may need a new key cylinder in the steering column. Mine was acting up (had to wait 3 min. to start) I replaced the key which didn't help. I then sprayed the key cylinder with electrical cleaner and so far (2 days later) it has not caused a problem. If it acts up again I'll probably replace the cylinder next.

Starter disabled due to theft system

the wire that goes to the ignition to the anti theft device is probably broken if you call a good locksmith they can go in through the steering column and fix it same thing happened to my 95 eldorado apparently cadillac designed the anti theft system to coincide with the ignition and is connected to the ignition with two wires that turn as the key is turned the wires twist and eventually they wear out
