Problem is usually the key fob. Replace key fob battery. If that does not work, go to the dealer and get a replacement key fob. Explain them the problem, so that they will re-program the key fob.

If that does not fix the problem, then the control module that manages the anti theft must be tested. This is located on the instrument panel, and indicated by the arrow on the right at bottom in the picture below:

    Generally speaking the key fob is a pendant hanging from key ring. In automotive we call key fob the car remote included with the key, the button remote control device that is part of the car electronic key.

I need the radio security code for a 1999 cadillac sts

You will need to contact Cadillac service at your local dealership. Give them the serial number on the radio. They can then pull the anti theft lock code from their companies archive. The serial number on the radio is typically tied to a VIN, but since you bought just the part, they can't search that way. Hope that helps.

I repalaced the battery on my 2005 cadillac sts and the radio wont turn on is there a reset

Its that darn Anti-Theft feature that locks the unit and makes it useless to thieves. Any GM dealer can reset it for you. Not a user fix. There should be a procedure to temporarily disable the anti-theft feature before the battery is disconnected. Check the owners manual if you have it.

Starting disabled due to anti-theft system

Almost always the key is not at fault. I know for sure heat changes the resistance of the key but it does not happen as a usual thing you would have to apply physical heat. Contact me at
