    Pcm yes at the dealer 75 bucks and the DIM is plug and play according to cadillac support and the dealer.

    I did do a little more research and keep running into ignition 3 relay but there are multiples.

    As well as it might be a bad Guage cluster but I would assume the speed and rpm wouldn't work if that was the case

    Or lastly the possibility of a faulty ignition switch

  • Jeff Armer Apr 16, 2017

    Yes , GM had issues with both ignition switches an instrument cluster .Instrument clusters from 03 to 06 had bad step motors , these move the pointer needles of the gauge .

    On most all vehicles there is a safety system that won't allow you to move the gear selector from park with the vehicle running , unless your foot is on the brake pedal . This is know as shift interlock . Can you turn the key to off ? Or you can't get to go to the off position ?

  • Jeff Armer Apr 16, 2017

    My factory service info. states the DIM needs to be programmed !
    Body Control Module (BCM) Programming/RPO Configuration (DIM)
    Important: The Air Bag Indicator light may remain ON after the DIM Module is replaced and during the programming procedure for the DIM until after the procedure is completed and the ignition key is cycled OFF and ON .

    After replacement or to reprogram the DIM perform the following procedure:

    Ensure the scan tool has been updated with the latest software version.
    Ensure the battery is fully charged.
    Ensure all modules on the serial data line are connected.
    Connect a scan tool to the data link connector (DLC).
    Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
    Under the DIM Main Menu, select Special Functions. Under the Special Functions menu, one of the choices is New VIN.
    The user selects one of the following:
    7.1. New VIN, to continue with the procedure.

    7.2. Exit, to go back to Special Functions menu.

    After the user chooses New VIN, follow the scan tool on screen instructions to edit VIN:
    • Press Save to save VIN information.

    Under the Special Functions menu, one of the choices is Setup SDM Serial Number in DIM.
    The user selects one of the following:
    • Setup SDM Serial Number in DIM, to continue with the procedure.

    • Exit, to go back to Special Functions menu.

    After the user chooses Setup SDM Serial Number in DIM, the scan tool displays a screen as follows:

  • Jeff Armer Apr 16, 2017

    After the user chooses Setup SDM Serial Number in DIM, the scan tool displays a screen as follows:

  • Jeff Armer Apr 16, 2017

    There is also a Shift Lock Bypass Procedure
    In the event that service is required, a park lock solenoid manual release lever is located on the right side of the floor shift assembly. To operate the manual release, block the wheels and apply the parking brake. Remove the shift lever trim panel and depress the release lever, move the shift lever to the NEUTRAL position while the lever is depressed.
    There is also a release for the ignition key ! don't think you have ignition switch or cylinder problem .

  • Jeff Armer Apr 16, 2017

    Can you turn the key to off ? and it will not come out ?

  • Jeff Armer Apr 16, 2017

    The key not coming out has something to do with the shift lock control i would think ! Now about the IGN 3 relay , there is a ign3 fuse in the rear fuse box , that is where the ign3 relay is as well , check for B+ voltage at the fuse with igntion on .Do you know where the rear fuse box is ?

  • Jeff Armer Apr 16, 2017

    Fuse Block - Rear
    Left rear of the passenger compartment, under the rear seat

SOURCE: Check engine light comes on. p0171 and p0351 codes found

From Lusty Kid:

I know the economy is bad, but change all of the plugs. Check your PCV Valve hose, 150 rottens them out allowing air to be sucked in, thus all kinds of codes.

Depending on mileage. Dismount the EGR valve and clean passages. If you are really good dismount the throtle position sensor body and clean out passages with Choke Cleaner., dismount where the EGR valves connects to the engine, clean out passages. Also check the hose thats behind this mounting to ensure is not clogged. If clogged clean it out. If not replace it. Is about 1.5 ft. long, connects to the PCV Valve Hose.

When is the last time you change your harness. Can't remember??? Replace it. Good Luck

Hi. You need to clean the Mass Air Flow Sensor.
This is an easy job.
Get a can of throttle body or brake cleaner spray at your local auto parts store.

Open the hood, and locate the air filter box. follow the tube from the filter box towards the engine. Look for a small black box with 2 screws holding it to the air tube, Remove the wire connector and observe inside the sensor with a flashlight. You will see 2 small wires, and they will appear fuzzy or dirty. Spray the interior with the cleaner until the wires are nice and clean. Do not use compressed air, you will damage the sensor. Put it all back together and drive it.
This will def fix your issue. This is a vey common problem. If you do it yourself, you will save 70 + bucks.

Thanks for choosing FixYa, and a FIxYa rating for my assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Ignition key stuck


Make sure the transmission is in park position. A worn shift cable can cause the park position not to engage completely to release the ignition key.

04 CTS Ignition Key Stuck, but I can remove the key and restart after a battery disconnect


The automatic transmission shift lock control system is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the engine is running. The driver must press the brake pedal before moving the shift lever out of the PARK position. The system consists of the following components.
• The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid
• The brake switch
• The rear integration module (RIM)
• The transmission control module (TCM) or powertrain control module (PCM)
With the ignition ON, battery positive voltage is supplied to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid from the ignition 3 relay. The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid is controlled by the rear integration module. When the rear integration module (RIM) receives a class 2 serial data message from the transmission control module (TCM) or powertrain control module (PCM) indicating that the shift lever is in the PARK position the rear integration module (RIM) grounds the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid control circuit. This causes the solenoid to energize mechanically locking the shift lever in the PARK position. When the driver presses the brake pedal the rear integration module receives the brake applied signal and turns off the ground to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid control circuit. This allows the shift lever to be moved out of the PARK position.

Hi . Entered our garage on an angle & indicator light did not switch off for quite a few hours before we noticed it . Does this frequently if dont come in to park straight. Battery on our cts cadillac...


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.

I have a 2007 Cadillac CTS. I go to turn the key and nothing happens. All onboard elctronics and a/c are functional. Battery life shows to be good. I have also tried using my other key set and nothing....


Test the neutral safety switch by doing the following steps.

1)foot on brake
2)turn key to on position
3)shift lever to neutral (N)
4)start the engine
5)shift the lever to Park (P)

If the engine can start at N and not at park then it's the neutral safety switch.

Theft system locked


To get the key out; look under the steering wheel for a plastic flat head screw. untwist it and then push the spring in and your key will be free. Then, go to your fuse box and remove the main fuses and you will hear the doors unlock when the system reset itself. Plug them back in and start your car. This just happened to me... seems the only things that were working were the navigation screen, headlights, fog lights, and reading light on the inside. Dash board was all dark except the engine light.

Has nothing to do with security system. You either have a bad shifter assembly, or a faulty lock cylinder in your ignition switch.
