Question about Cadillac STS

1 Answer

Hi, I have a 2006 Cadillac STS and the battery seems to be dead and I can't open the doors either because the fobs don't work. The spare key that I have is inside the car. Is there anyway I can get in to the car or open the hood to have the battery changed before I try opening it with the fobs? Any help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You can go to a cadillac with proof of ownership and a picture ID and yhey can grt the codes for your key and cut you a new key. after you get in the car start the car with the old key shut car off and immediately start car with new key this will activate the new key to your car

2006 Cadillac STS driver side door lock doesn't activate when I approach the car (as it's supposed to). Key fob also doesn't activate the lock or unlock features. All other doors and trunk operate...


It actually sounds like the micro switch in the drivers door that reads the key fob is bad, if the key works and the fob works on the other doors and the trunk. You will most likely need to have the door handle replaced, they're not very expensive by themselves but it can be a lot of work.

My key fob has quit working and it tells me no key fob detected. My car is a 2006 Caddie STS. Both fobs have stopped working.


Mine did the same thing. I put the fob into the reprogramming slot located in the center console and was able to get it started by leaving the in the slot. Hope it works for you.

In the 2006 STS is there a place in the car where the key fob can be inserted to turn the car on if the battery is dead? In the XLRV there is a place in the glove compartment


Hello: If you are talking about the battery in the key fob then yes, there should be a slot in the glove compartment that you can insert the key fob and it should work. If you are referring to the main car battery then no, you will have to charge, jump or replace the battery.

My 2005 Cadillac STS has a completely dead battery. Nothing lights up when I pull on the door handle. I just moved and I have no clue where my key is since I've only used the FOB since I've owned...


Raise the car up,support it in the front

Put a battery charger on the battery cable
at the starter and the ground to the sub frame

Charge the battery for a couple hours,then try to

In just the past week all doors will open except the passenger door on my 2006 STS. The red light is working (locking/unlocking) but the door won't open at all until you open it from the inside. I've had...


Because the FOB is working the other two other things it can be are the fuses that control it, or the power lock control moduel. The fuses can be repaired easily, so I would attempt that first. The control moduel, however, I would take to a repair shop. Hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!

Some late model fobs contain electronics beyond the push buttons.
Batteries are replaceable...small screws may let you do this.
If the battery is not the cause....a replacement fob may be expensive. A road service technician can probably troubleshoot and replace cheaper than dealer !

Cadillac sts dead battery cant open car with remote key fob


Don't you still have a door key?Otherwise jack up the car and remove the engine under body cover.Between the radiator support and the engine are some hard lines.Remove the two brackets holding them,this will allow you room to get to the starter.Hook the red end of a jumper cable to the red battery cable that's connected to the starter.Black to a suitable ground and charge the battery.A battery charger is easier to use,use that if you have one.If jumping off a car make sure the cables are hooked to the dead car first and grounded to the engine not the battery of the car doing the charging.Sure hope this helps!

2006 STS drivers door won't open. Passenger doors opens as should. Inside drivers handle does open door. Charged key fob and that doesnt help.


something came off inside your door,remove the panel and look for a plastic rod connector either off or broken.If it is off go get a new one their very cheap.
The other thing is the door lock actuator could be bad,you will know when you get inside,work the all the electric do dads and watch the motor react.
