Question about Cadillac CTS
I need a little clarification.. You stated wen you take off the neg terminal and "tap" it to the neg side or the batt 3 times then connect it to the battery it starts (i don't really understand what that part is). Also you say when you disconnect the battery the car will shut off and you can remove the key to be removed from the igniton. Does it not come out when the battery is disconnected?? If you can send me more info on this I can try an assist you.... Also have you consulted your collision person with these concerns as they should have been covered in your repair??

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
