Refueled my 2006 cts now it won't start

had the same thing happen to me. dealership told me it was a safety feature that when it runs out of gas it wont start again without clearing the code so they said. I hade mine towed to dealership and let them mess with it, cause I also put more gas in it and eventually drained my battery trying to start it.

Cadillac cts won't turn off. Key turns but car

your ignition switch needs replaced, or the lock cylinder that holds the key if it just turns freely. it will need to be taken somewhere, it's not that easy of a job. hurry before you run out of gas!! how are you shutting it off? if you can find it, you could pull the fuel pump relay, but the lites are probably on also and will drain the battery

Cigarette port

All newer vehicles have a safety battery shut off. Youll need to turn your key back to accessory. say your listening to your radio with the keys out, it will shut off after 10 mins so it dont drain your battery. dont worry about it killing your battery charging a phone...ect.

The dealers know about a problem with the batteries and will replace under warranty. The original batteries were defective. I just bought a 2006 CTS and after test driving the car the battery died and wouldnt restart. The dealer replaced the battery. You should not have to pay a dime.
