SOURCE: CTS in dash navigation system

There is a company called PAC that specializes in modules like you describe - keeping the steering wheel controls functional with an aftermarket radio.

Click HERE to visit their site. You have to choose a compatible manufacturer. Basically - it is turning the steering wheel controls into a "remote" hidden in the dash.

CLICK HERE for the PAC installation guide for the 2006 CTS

For best results and compatibility, look for a shop in your area that carries PAC - it is a common manufacturer in the BIZ, and have them install it.

The simple answer to your question is YES as long as you use the module compatible for the brand of radio you are installing.

SOURCE: Can't shift into reverse ( manual transmission )

I have the same problem on my 2005 cts. The shifter fork has two rubber bushings that attach at the transmission that break or give way. I assume they did this for a softer feel and to avoid vibration but it leads to the selector not engaging well when you go the extreme direction of reverse on the shifter as there is too much deflection. I replaced the bushings with washers as spacers and it seems to work as a "McGyver" fix. I do intend to get the parts needed from Cadillac to restore it to factory standards. Hopefully they have the parts. To fix the problem you have to go under the car. To get good access you have to disconnect the exhaust and the driveshaft. I did it without this and just tormented my poor hands but I wasn't willing to do all the other work while in my driveway. You simply take the clip holding the fork shaft onto the transmission selector end off and slide the small shaft out. I also took off the shifter side of the fork to study the thing a bit better. That takes a 13mm and a small allen wrench, 4.5 or 3/16, can't remember. Then replace the bushings or do as I did and stack some washers so as to get rid of the slack between the inside of the fork and the gear selector on the transmission. Assemble and try. If you have as good dexterity and tenacity at your fingertips as I do, you'll curse the day you attempted doing this without taking out all the other stuff. If you don't, take out all the other stuff to make room for your hands. The space is very confined. Good luck.

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~

SOURCE: 2003 Cadillac CTS. Shift linkage makes metallic

Just had the same problem. The problem is that the rubber bushing on the transmission linkage deteriorates and falls off. This causes two problems - shifter is loose and a metallic clunking sound is heard when shifting. It's not the shifter inside the car. It's the linkage underneath the car. You have to buy the bushing (if sold by itself) or the linkage kit. The linkage is on the passenger side of the transmission between transmission and right side exhaust pipe. Ensure engine/exhaust is cold prior to trying to access. Regards.

My Cadillac Cts 2006 won't crank and gear shift won't move out of reverse.


It won't crank because it is in reverse. First remove the linkage at the transmission and put it in park or just see if the transmission shifter will move. If it does, then look to the cable or shifter in the console/column. If the transmission shifter doesn't move, It is an internal transmission problem. Most can be repaired by removing the valve body. Via the transmission oil pan. Some the transmission has to be pulled .

I replaced radiator in my 2006 cadillac cts and the return line for the transmission popped out of the rad.... why?


normally the oil lines to the radiator are screwed in as there is pressure in these lines from the pump in the transmission. If the flexible hoses are only on tail with a hose clip to hold it on I would change them to screw in type to cater for the pressure of the transmission pump. Have a pressure test done on the transmission to ensure that the pressure is not too high.

Shifter is about 1/4" "out"


sadly, and perhaps dangerously, you need to make the adjustment inside the console.  Perhaps the dealer can xerox an exploded view.
