2005 Cadillac srx - something is draining my battery and the only thing different is that I opened up the 2nd back seat and now I can't keep a charge. We disconnect the negitive post and checked the fuses and relays. The accessories relay had a problem, so I was told to disconnect the power to the back seat but don't know how

SOURCE: 2002 Dodge Intrepid accessory/starter relay problem?

Accessory position is turning key towards he driver. Ignition on is away 1 and start is away2.

  • Turn on your headlights, do they work? If not, chk batt terminals
  • If they do, try to crank the engine noting what the headlights do. If they go out, Chk the batt ground cable. If they dim, your batt needs a charge. If they dim and then come back bright when you back off the starter, the starter is bad.
  • Chk for loose engine to body ground. That would affect the accessories. Good Luck, _Ned_

SOURCE: Battery drains overnight. Oldsmobile Aurora

Check the body control module located on the drivers side above the brake pedal. It is a black box very easy to change. You can find them online from 60 to 100 dollars.

Conversely it could also be the multifunction switch. This is a little black box near the end of your turn signal level underneath the steering wheel cover. It can cause a ticking noise to be randomly heard and cause your parking lights to flicker or stay on, draining your battery. The switch can cost $800 dollars to replace. However, the unit can be cleaned and repaired with contact cleaner and compressed air.

All power light come on over dash for a 2005 Cadillac SRX, but won't come on. What is wrong?

Marvin, 1st thing if able to do so, is check for good battery, it should be no lower then 12.2 volts to enable vehicle to start. A good charged battery would be 14.4 volts or higher.
If you know battery is OK, I would say that your cars security system has been activated and you will have to follow instructions from your manual to reset security.
Security not the issue check, fuses, starter relay, if found to be OK, starter is defective.

2011 Cadillac SRX will not start! Was running fine, parked it and came back out to move it and it wouldn't start. It would turn on at first but not start and then quickly drained the battery completely. ...

I am betting your alternator is shot and not charging the battery. The symptom would be everything is dead on the dash and lights. Battery will need to be fully charged and alternator replaced. Make sure to have the alternator checked for free at an auto parts store first.

evidently cadillac does not have a 5/50k warranty like many other cars, yet folks continue to buy them.
i would take it to a dealer and have them check the thermostat for the seat, it has to have a circuit to turn it off to keep it from burning up and that system also controls the temperature, like in the electric blanket and toaster in your house. this is a dealer thing.
