It seems that you are low on fuel based on you saying 70 miles in the range gauge. If this problem does not happen with 3 gallons of fuel or more then it is normal. The range is calculated on your average MPG and gallons of fuel in the tank. When the car gets to around 2 gallons it does not chance miscalculating your miles to empty and leave you on the side of the road. At this point he tank will read "E" to let you know it is time to fuel up. The flashing "E" is simply cadillac's way to get your attention that you are in fact low on fuel and need to take action. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Car won't start-- warning light
Try removing the fuse for the security system and see if this will allow you to start the car. If not, you have another problem and will need to take it to a mechanic.

You have an ECM and a BCM, one located behind your glove box and the other underneath your passenger side dash. They are very similar in size, shape, and color but i think the ECM s behind the glove box. I had the same problem and replaced the one behind the glove box and the problem went away. They are both easy to replace but they cost around $70 if I remember correctly. And you have a chip you have to swap from the old to the new that you have to be careful with.

well for starters there is many factors at play here. 1. battery chargers need to be on and battery disconnected. make sure if it has a timer it did not run out and (the charger may also have an internal fues/ relay ) if it gets too hot it shut off. Was the charger on a high enough setting to compenstate for the drain and is your battery good enough to be charged even. constantly drained batteries will actully not hold a charge after awhile. most parts or even walmart can check batteries free>
The trunk lights and fuel door on the same fuse? otherwise I would say the trunk has a bad switch that is not making contact or is making poor contact and acting as the trunk is open. it may just be pinched wires that rubbed together make contact with your cars steel body. They may be seen in the trunk follow the wires from the release switch and see if it connects anyplace near the fuel door. I am sure it will.
