The ignition key for your car is a security transponder type, that means the key produces a distinct signal that the security/anti-theft module in your particular car recognizes and then allows you to start the engine, since you have no working key you will need to have a new ignition key lock cylinder put in the car by the dealer or a locksmith that has the equipment to program the system to the new lock cylinder and key, the easiest thing to do is have the car towed to any GM dealer, doesn't have to be a Cady shop, any GM dealer can perform the repair and required re-programming of the anti-theft module, u probaly didn't want to hear this but never the less I am 100% sure that this is the correct solution.

    you say you lost your keys, now you want to program the remote, a little confused here, read your post? The answer is the same, there is no way for you to program the remote, the following quote is from the factory manual.



    "There is no manual way to program keyless remotes to this vehicle. Please contact a your local dealership to get a quote on how much it will cost to program keyless remotes to this vehicle"

    this is from another site



    The key is a transponder key, which means it contains an individual computer security code which allows only programmed keys to start the car. I recently had to replace a transponder key for a Cadillac and was able to find a new blank key on eBay for much less than the dealer cost. It will need to be an exact key blank match as needed, which a Cadillac dealer can provide the part number for. You will also need to have the key cut and programmed by either the dealer or a locksmith that has the required computer and tools, and it would be wise to do so as soon as possible, as otherwise there is a key floating around out there that will open and start your friend's car. The locksmith/dealer can lock that old key out of the ignition system as part of the programming

You can get a new ignition lock cylinder (steering column) with keys for $52.00 from Schuck's/O'reilly's....

For the doors, I would get a locksmith and have it rekeyed with the replacement ignition cylinder keys.

That is the cheapest and best fix for this problem...or....take the highroad/high dollar route and see the dealership!

Trunk won't open with either remote but will open with trunk button on drivers door


I would check the owners manual or with Cadillac - its possible the remotes lost part of the signal and need to be reset. It sounds like the receiver is not getting a signal from them by using that button.
Could be the receiver too.
