Question about 2008 Cadillac Cts

3 Answers

Where is the keyless remote receiver. Key fobs are not working properly. Batteries just changed recently.

Cadillac service advisor said maybe receiver which will cost $77 to test or may need new key fobs at $190 each plus $30 each to program. If we play with the keys they eventually work. But am afraid I might get stranded.

You could try this.Open the keyless like you have to do to change the battreys in it .
look inside it you will see contacts that touch the batterys when the bottens are pushed .Take a tooth pick and vary carefuly and gentley bend them up clean the contact point with rubbing alcohol.
You see every time you push the botton it pushes the contact up to connect with the back of the battery but the metal contact is a spring push it down enough times it dosn't spring back enough anymore .
However you will have to do this more and more as time goe's on it will work evertime .

Lube the locks and check your settings in the control panel to make sure they did not get changed to not allow the remotes to work

Sounds as if the key remote had one of its buttons stuck down.this happen to me when a girlfriend used her nail to press the remote and the rubber flap got pushed inside the fob and kept the remote sending signals.unfortunately you can't just swap out batteries as most key fobs have to be reprogrammed.if you use the dealership that your make is serviced by it is better to ask how much they charge as sometimes independent auto locksmiths can reprogram key fobs cheaper.

Two things to check:

Replace the fob batteries or reprogram. Here's how to reprogram them:

Connect a scan tool.
Select diagnostics.
Select body code.
Select body style code.
Select other.
Select remote function actuator (RFA).
Select special functions.
Select F0 program key fobs.
Choose the fob number that you wish to program.
Follow the screen prompts in order to complete the programming procedure.
Press and hold the lock and the unlock buttons on the transmitter being programmed. The door locks will cycle. This should take about 15 seconds.
Proceed to the next transmitter and repeat steps 1-11 until all of the transmitters are complete.
Exit the remote keyless entry (RKE) programming.
Disconnect the scan tool.
Cycle the ignition. Test the transmitters for proper operation.
