Question about 2005 Cadillac CTS
My theft detorrent system is on my screen and i cant get my key out is there a way to reset my theft detorrent system i dont know what is wrong
Go to your fuse box and pull out the fuse to the ECM, that will release the keys from the ignition. You may still have the problem so you may have to reset the whole system by locking the car completely and then putting the ECM fuse back in. Once the fuse is back in, unlock it and that should bring the system back to it's base. If there is a problem with the engine not starting you may have to do the ignition key relearn also and that's about a 30 min program.
30-Minute Learn Procedure 1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. 2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start. 3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF. 4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds. 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. 6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password. 7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles. Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted, be glad to help.
