sounds like a 12V drain on the system, like a trunk or glove box light that won't shut off.> Could be many. many other reasons why. The way I would find the draining circuit would be to remove the neg cable of the battery. I then would connect a 12V test light between the neg battery TERMINAL and the neg battery CABLE. With a 12V drain the light will shine. I would install into the light a 9V battery powered recepticle to hold computer and radio station memory. Then I remove fuses 1 at a time, then reinstall, at the same time looking for the 12V light to go out. Hope this helps.

There's a blower motor (fan) under the hood and up against the firewall near the center of the car that takes some work to remove. It has gone out in the last 2 of my 4 Cadillacs. Turns out if you're not real careful with the positioning of the spark plug wires they will brush up against it, and if one of them gets cracked or brittle it will "arc" and short out the blower motor. The a/c compressor should still come on (you'll hear a click when it engages) but you won't get any air blowing into the cabin, hot or cold.
The part was like $200 stock (year 2000 prices) and it took about an hour to remove it. My Caddy at that time had this damn strut bar going across the engine bay which we eventually removed to get to the blower motor.

Aye, I would check or have the Ignition control module checked. Also the crankshaft position sensor imputs to the ICM. No crank signal being recieved means the control module wont send the spark out as the module has no idea where the piston position is. Surprised your local GM techs could fix this. I am a GM and ASE master certified tech who has spent the last 9 years with our local Cadillac dealership.

Hello, You probably have failed (broken) wire(s) coming from the ignition lock cylinder to the security system. To repair you need to replace the ignition lock cylinder, a new key with the same resistor. no programming required. Hope this helps
