Question about 2003 Cadillac CTS

1 Answer

The remote door locks and trunk opener have stopped working on my 2003 Cadillac CTS. Several months ago the battery in the care died and after it was changed the remotes have not worked since then. Just this week my husband changed the "box" located under the header of the car. We were told that after this the remotes should begin working. However they are not. My question is this. Once the operating system "box" has been changed do the remotes not have to be reprogrammed in order to work with the new box? I'm at a loss. Please help.

SOURCE: trunk lid on 2003 cadillac cts is hard to raise

I had the same problem with my 2003 CTS. It seems it is a factory fault. The two struts that hold the lid up had no gas inside. You will need to have them replaced. About $80.

SOURCE: 2004 cts cadillac trunk will not open with remote

It won't open with the remote because the button doesn't work because there's probably no power to the button.

Check ground and power to the button with a little voltmeter.

Check fuses that are related to the button.

If you find a fuse is blown, then throw a new fuse in. If it blows again, you know you have a bad ground.

Check fuse.. Test for power to trunk release solenoid. When door button, or remote trunk release button is pushed. If there is power ( use a 12 volt test light ) most probably faulty release . Hope this helps

SOURCE: what is the firring order for 2006 Cadillac cts

Without the size of your Engine listed here, I'll give you the firing order for 4-cylinders, 6-cylinders and 8-cylinders. On a four cylinder, the firing order is 1-3-4-2. On a 6-cylinder engine the firing order is 1-5-3-6-2-4. On an 8-cylinder, it's 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. If it's a V-6 or V-8, then the odd cylinders are on the left side of the Engine and the even numbers are on the right side of the engine.

Hope this Helps,

~00 Buck~

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.

2003 fx35 door lock problems


The problem is the Door lock actuators and when I went to the dealer they want $467.90 to fix just my driver's side door, but after almost having a heart-attack from the dealer's estimate, I checked on ebay and found a Kit to fix the door lock for only $59 so i ordered one kit (shipping was super fast) it came with very easy instructions on how to install the kit, so I installed about 4-months ago in under 1HR and now everything is Back to normal, I can unlock/Lock using my original OEM key fob and also using the power switch on the door, so everything work as from factory ( no need for aftermarket alarm or remote) ... !!!! here is a link of the kit that I purchased. The seller is green-seller1975 and item #111291472359

Remote control won't lock/unlock doors, but will open the trunk. What;s wrong?


There is a fuse box under the right rear seat cushion behind the driver. In that box is a 10 amp mini fuse marked "TRUNK DR RELEASE". That is the fuse that powers your remote receiver. If that fuse is good, the receiver may have failed. To remove the seat cushion, pull the front of the cushion up and then forward.

VW Jetta 2003 1.9 TDI trunk does not want to open with remote My Jetta trunk recently started to give me problems without warning. I cannot get the trunk open with the remote. The trunk only opens manually...


If your lock actuator engages (you can hear the sound it makes) with the remote/electric button on the door, but the trunk doesn't open then the problem is likely a broken plastic arm that the electric assembly pushes. You can see it if you unscrew the inside cover from the trunk lid and try the remote. I started having the same issue with VW Jetta 2002 GLS that was rear-ended 8 months ago. My guess is the cracked plastic finally gave out in the cold weather.

Trunk will not close


With the trunk open try to accuate the button on the driver's door, check the state of the lock in the trunk first and see or have someone watch it if it moves when you push the door's button.

You may also try manually to open the lock right in the trunk.
