Sounds like the battery is not holding charge and takes a while to recover ,have the battery check at the auto shop usually free if this is ok the starter solenoid may be over heating ,cant think of a way to check this other than new starter

2005 cadillac cts wont start wont say anything.


Won't start how ? When you turn the key to the start position does the starter spin the engine ? Or not ? This would be a no crank - no start condition ! Or when you turn the key to start the starter spins over the engine but it doesn't start an run ? This is a crank - no start condition . Both have very different diagnostic testing procedures ! An what won't say anything ? Is there a car an padlock symbol lit on the instrument cluster ?

2004 cadillac cts wont crank at all, i turn the key and try to start it but it doesn't crank or do anything just the dashboard light come on and the engine light flickers then it wont release the key


I had something similar happen on my 2004 CTS. The car would not crank, and I recall the security light was on the dash. The key could be turned off, but not quite far enough to be removed.
The key can be removed by sticking a small pin or screw driver in a hole under the steering column... maybe 2 inches from the actual steering wheel. I recall there is a small cover or plug in the hole that needs to be removed.
You can let it sit and occasionally try to start it. My did start once more.
I ended up having it towed to the GM dealer and they replaced the ECM for about $500? That took care of it for a couple years, until I recently sold it.

A loss of power triggers the Anti theft feature on you car. In some cases, if you lock the drivers door and unlock it with the key, you can reset or rearm the system.

Another method is to turn the key to the On position and leave it there 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn the key to attempt to start the car. If these 2 methods don't work, you may need to tow it to the dealer to have the Security reset.

Check the crankshaft sensor or read codes off of the OBD-II system to see if that describes a problem that would cause the car to crank but not start and run on its own.

Brakes


You don't have to use ceramic brake pads (unless they are original equipment) but they function better by causing less frictional heat. OEM grade pads should work ok.
