Sounds like an ignition switch problem. Thats one for your mechanic. To get your key out make sure you are in Park (This comes from experience). Good luck.

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.

Where is the idle control sensor for 2004 Cts Cadillac


There is none.Idle is controlled by your computer. If you have problems, check these. Vacuum lines behind throttle body. You may have to replace your air flow sensor. You can also try this:
Engine cold.
Turn your key to on position for a full minute. Don't start the car.
Turn key off for 10 seconds
Turn key on for 10 seconds. (Don't start)
Turn key off for 10 seconds. Then start the car. Might work but in all probability your main airflow sensor (MAP) is the problem.

I have a 03 cadillac cts the other day after work i go get in the car try and start it up the radio part reads anti theft / service theft sytem and does not start and also said remove key... what the


The vehicle is having problems reading the tiny metal security slug in the ignition key. When you used a key to unlock the door, you disabled the security system so it started. There are a variety of different resistance values on the slugs in the key. You can have someone with a ohm meter read the resistance of yours and install a fixed resistor of the same identical value to the wiring for the key security system. You may alternatively spray contact cleaner or a bit of WD-40 in the ignition switch to clean it off. Insert and remove the key several times, wiping it off each time you remove it.

Battery fully charged, car wont start, cant remove key, 2004 cadillac cts


There is a magnetic switch on the 'park' position. The car only starts or releases the key in 'park' is enabled. Maybe this switch is not working! Try to replace it!

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"

I have a 2007 Cadillac CTS. I go to turn the key and nothing happens. All onboard elctronics and a/c are functional. Battery life shows to be good. I have also tried using my other key set and nothing....


Test the neutral safety switch by doing the following steps.

1)foot on brake
2)turn key to on position
3)shift lever to neutral (N)
4)start the engine
5)shift the lever to Park (P)

If the engine can start at N and not at park then it's the neutral safety switch.

Theft system locked


To get the key out; look under the steering wheel for a plastic flat head screw. untwist it and then push the spring in and your key will be free. Then, go to your fuse box and remove the main fuses and you will hear the doors unlock when the system reset itself. Plug them back in and start your car. This just happened to me... seems the only things that were working were the navigation screen, headlights, fog lights, and reading light on the inside. Dash board was all dark except the engine light.

1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key.
