I put the key in the ignition and turn it over to start and it makes a buzzing sound like a buzzer


Its the buzzer for the key switch so you don't forget to take the key out and its likely a minor problem with the key switch it self . The buzzer can be unpluged listen for the noise when looking under the dash board and unplug it . As long as your not haveing other issues with the key switch and the vehicle is running OK then you realy don't need the buzzer and it won't effect anything else on the vehicle just don't forget your keys good luck with it

1998 Cadillac deville. It says eject key Starting disabled


Hello, You may have a ignition lock cylinder failure, The two wires coming off the lock cylinder will break and the resistence signal from the key will not get to the computer. To repair you need to replace the lock cylinder, get a new key with the same resistence value as your old key. This is not a simple task. The driver air bag. steering wheel, air bag coil, signal light switch, key buzzer switch have to come out, The wires from the lock cylinder run down inside the steering column. Hope this helps you.

Key will not turn to on cadillac esclade 2003


make sure the stearing wheel is not turned to far one way or the other. the wheek lock will prevent the key from turning. short of that you need an ignition switch. call autozone for prices. they are pretty simple to change yourself if you have a few tools.

Light warning buzzer constantly on


Have you checked that the headlight switch is in the right position? Are the headlights or parking lights still on when the key is removed?

If so, then rotate the lamp switch to the correct position and the buzzer will go off. Headlights and parking lights are not controlled through the key circuits.
