The security system (VATS/PassKey) is having problems, it's typical on those cars. You can find a great write-up here: http://newrockies.ca , it was the only thing that saved my Park Avenue.

My cadillac 04 cts wont start. Thinks its the scurtiy feature. Any1 have a idea


Is the security light lit ? Car an pad lock symbol . If any of these are lit it is the anti-theft system . Does the engine crank over but won't start an run ? The anti-theft system will allow the engine to crank but not start , disables fuel injectors . If the anti-theft light is lit there are DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes stored in the theft deterrent module an or the ECM .
Does anything happen when you turn the key to the start position ?

All my lights in my 1993 fleetwood brougham turn on, but when I try to start it, it don't start or crank.


Is the security light lit up on the dash when it wont start? If so, you have a VATS security issue. The system will actually turn off the starter if it feels that it is being stolen. It thinks its being stolen when the chip in the key doesnt communicate with ignition/lock cyclinder. Or if the security computer is going out. (it's called the TDM) If that light is on, its a dead give away that the vats is messed up. If no light, id try a good charge on the battery. Sometimes the lights will work fine but you dont have those cranking amps that you need to start.

When the battery went dead, it activated the anti theft system. That is why you can't get the key out of the ignition. If you do get it out, you still won't be able to start the car. Call the dealership and ask them what your options are, in the meantime, go to this website and read about the security sydtem: http://newtockies.ca/vatsbypass.
