Do the headlights come on? We need more info. It could be 100 different things with your description. Start with the battery, if it has power then start checking fuses, if the fuses are all good and the battery has power, it could be a main power relay or engine computer problem or body computer problem.

SOURCE: Mazda 2005 RX-8 wont start... ran yesterday, lights on & sounds

I have a 2004 that had the same problem. It sounds like the engine might be flooded. The best thing to do is to remove the fuse to the fuel pump. It will be listed under the fuse cover under the hood. Mine was a 20 amp but check to be sure. With the fuse removed, crank the engine for a minute to remove any fuel flooding the engine. Replace the fuse and crank the engine in 10 second intervals without touching the gas or you will reflood the engine. This process can sometimes take awhile and will drain your battery, so have it connected to an additional power source ( i.e. another car battery or jump box). When the car finally cranks over there will be a huge cloud of smoke so don't be alarmed when it happens. Lastly some words to the wise. This process CAN ruin your starter, but is essentially the same process that the dealership will you except that they will remove the spark plugs to drain the fuel and then charge you for new ones. If this process doesn't work then you probably need new spark plugs which is going to cost quite a bit. I was quoted upwards of $525 to fix this problem until I talked to a Mazda mechanic and found out how to do this myself. Just make sure that the engine is up to running temperature before turning the car off and you shouldn't encounter this problem again. I hope this helps you, and remember that if all else fails the dealer can fix it. It won't be cheap, but they will get it done.

I almost forgot, you HAVE to get the oil changed as soon as possible because there is probably gas in the oil now.

SOURCE: I have a 2005 Cadillac CTS. Both my brake lights

Check the fuse first, then check the Actuator by your brake peddle to see if it's needs to be adjusted or replaced. Good luck

SOURCE: how do I replace the tail light bulb on my

ok cadillac for some reason has to be difficult about these things you actually have to take the whole tail light assembly out. . .here is what youre going to need:

1. socket wrench
2. number 10 socket (gm's nut of choice)
3. patience because it is easy to drop the nut be careful

ok so you have to open the trunk then take the plastic that holds the carpet down off. you do this by unscrewing the black screw on pegs (not sure what to call these things). after you do this pull the plastic thing hard because it is being held in place by some pegs other than the ones you have already removed. then remove all the side carpeting depending on which side youre changing. ok after this look directly behind the tail light assembly for 2-3 (i forget how many) bolt like pegs (my new favorite word) these are attached to the plastic tail light assembly. then take the nuts off of these pegs and then you should be able to tug the assembly off. then you do what the others say take out the socket and replace the bulb.

like i said cadillac makes **** hard to do. if you hate this wait til you have to take the whole bumper off to replace the headlight bulbs (might want to invest in some hid lights so you wont ever have to replace them)

good luck

SOURCE: HOW TO REPLACE A BREAK LIGHT SWITCH

The brake light switch itself is located on the brake pedal follow it down until you see where it connects and unplug the connection ...after installation make sure the brake light switch is correctly adjusted by having a 2nd person stand behind the vehicle as you press the pedal the light should come on if not adjust the switch higher up by turning the switch inward ..or upwards by screwing it in if it constantly on unscrew it until lights go out and its fairly easy once you actually look at the part and the pedal ...i hope that helps you

What is the main fuses on a 2005 Cadillac CTS? This is the picture of our problem


That symbol means that the car has been locked down by something. More than likely it's the security system.

My battery ran down on my 2005 Cadillac CTS because of non-use, sitting in my garage. I charged it up and it tests ok, but the car wont start and the lock out light is on the dash. If the battery is good...


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.

I have a 2005 Cadillac cts and I bought a new battery and now I have to take the battery off and on to get it started what do need to do its something to do with the alarm or security system the doors lock...


Welcome to FIxYa.com





Sounds like one of the small wires comming from the ignition lock cylinder has broken in 2 and you will need to replace the ignition lock cylinder and keys. If you don't care if the special key starts the car then all you have to do is measure the key resistor and go to radio shack and buy a resistor close to the same reading and cut the wire at the bottom of the steering column and wire the resistor in place. Then the engine will start up

Electrical malfunctions on 2005 Cadillac CTS. When the weather gets humid especially in colder conditions, my passenger side mirror goes out of whack. Just keeps changing positions when I start the car?...


IF you get a chance check down where your wire harness plugs into your ECM or PCM and see if there is any wire chafe going on down there from when the engine rocks. When it get humid out the wires cross shorting out eachother.
