Question about 2007 Cadillac CTS 3.6L

1 Answer

I'm having an intermittent problem with my 07 Cadillac CTS. Car will crank but won't fire up and start. After 7-8 tries, it starts and runs perfect. Dealer claims they can't find the problem when in for service. Also, when attempting this start, I can turn the key forward to the start position, let go of it, and it will stay in the start position with the engine continuing to crank without starting. I have to manually turn the key backwards to stop the engine from continuing to crank.

Sounds like the problem is in the ignition switch - I would have another chat with that dealer.

Are your power seats working? Mine shorted out and several days later my battery was dead because the short was drawing power from the battery when the car was not running. If your battery and charging system check out o.k, I would say you have some kind of parasitic drain on your battery.

2005 cadillac cts wont start wont say anything.


Won't start how ? When you turn the key to the start position does the starter spin the engine ? Or not ? This would be a no crank - no start condition ! Or when you turn the key to start the starter spins over the engine but it doesn't start an run ? This is a crank - no start condition . Both have very different diagnostic testing procedures ! An what won't say anything ? Is there a car an padlock symbol lit on the instrument cluster ?

The car cranks fine (good battery) but will not


Hey all. I've had my 2003 in twice for the Crankshaft position sensor. In Feb 08 it fixed everything. My car wouldn't start when it had been running for a while. I'd pull into a gas station, then go to start it again and it would just turn over. Same thing just happened in July 2010. They replaced the crankshaft position sensor again, but now it's still doing the same thing. If I let the car sit for 20-25 minutes, it will start and run just fine. However, this time around the check engine light is on and it has never come on. I'm open to any suggestions as to what to try next. What is the PCM exactly?

you probebly need a crank sensor. take it to autozone and have them check the codes they will usually have a history crank sensor code. they usually act up after driving and letting set. the 03 cts uses the same engine as the later model catera. we have seen alot of crank sensor issues
