SOURCE: CTS in dash navigation system

There is a company called PAC that specializes in modules like you describe - keeping the steering wheel controls functional with an aftermarket radio.

Click HERE to visit their site. You have to choose a compatible manufacturer. Basically - it is turning the steering wheel controls into a "remote" hidden in the dash.

CLICK HERE for the PAC installation guide for the 2006 CTS

For best results and compatibility, look for a shop in your area that carries PAC - it is a common manufacturer in the BIZ, and have them install it.

The simple answer to your question is YES as long as you use the module compatible for the brand of radio you are installing.

SOURCE: Replace 2005 Cadillac CTS water pump

drain the coolant.remove belt by rotating belt tensioner cllockwise. water pump pulley will require a holding tool to keep it from turning while removing bolts. access to air ratchet can sometimes eliminate the need to hold but be careful cause thats a good way to skin some knuckles. also make installation more difficult to obtain proper torque. after pulley is off just a few water pupm mounting bolts remain. clean and dry gasket surface very well before reinstalling.

Take it to a Cadillac dealer. The dealer uses a Tech II (computer) to reprogram your car to recognize the new key fob.

2004 cadillac cts wont crank at all, i turn the key and try to start it but it doesn't crank or do anything just the dashboard light come on and the engine light flickers then it wont release the key


I had something similar happen on my 2004 CTS. The car would not crank, and I recall the security light was on the dash. The key could be turned off, but not quite far enough to be removed.
The key can be removed by sticking a small pin or screw driver in a hole under the steering column... maybe 2 inches from the actual steering wheel. I recall there is a small cover or plug in the hole that needs to be removed.
You can let it sit and occasionally try to start it. My did start once more.
I ended up having it towed to the GM dealer and they replaced the ECM for about $500? That took care of it for a couple years, until I recently sold it.

2003 cadillac cts key stuck in ingnition no power to ignition or dash


Its the BCM mounted on the passenger side valve cover. Yes the body control mod is on the motor. The coil pack starts to fail, then emits a higher then norm electromagnetic fields and takes out the BCM bolted directly on the top of the passenger side coils. Under the column there is a small plastic screw that you remove then push up on the button to release the key.

My key is stuck in the ignition of my 2006 cadillac cts


2005 CTS 3.6 Dead battery, key stuck, service anti theft and nothing happens when you turn key, Ttried everything, ECM reset, key memory reset, charged battery to 12.7 volts, locked door w remote and opened w key, anyway you get the idea. After 3 days of online reading and trying, THIS IS WHAT WORKED, 1. put key into on position 2. removed sarter relay from front fuse panel 3. jumped 1st pin closest to fender and passenger seat with pin that is closest to motor and front fender. I used a paper clip and just made contact long enough for car to start. ran car for five minutes and took key out and everything went back to normal. then I took car to advance auto parts to have engine light reset. if car does not go back to normal you have ECM (car computer) failure. video on YouTube under "no crank, no start"

2005 cadillac cts key wont turn to on position


This can be the immobilizer at work or at fault mode.

If you have ON-STAR they may fix you up in few minutes.



Disconnect the battery for 3-4 minutes.

TAPE the 2nd key NEAR the ignition key area.

Reconnection the negative cable.

Try to get the key out of the ign.

PUT THE "BAD"/questionable key far away from the steering lock area.

Test the 2nd key.

Make sure the steering does not stick.

Drive right to a shop.
