Read your manual or take it to the dealer. It sounds like it needs reset.....if this is a factory anti theft system, only the installer may be able to help you.

SOURCE: put key in to start, will not start, says starting

Hi I had this problem when I got my Eldorado 3 years ago. You have to take it to the dealer to get them to override this in the info center. Unless you can find the code somewhere.

2003 cadillac cts turn key on and a message comes up that says starter disabled remove key what does this mean and how to repair , thanks


STARTING DISABLED REMOVE KEY
Refer to Theft Systems Description and Operation in Theft Deterrent

STARTING DISABLED REMOVE KEY
The radio illuminates the STARTING DISABLED REMOVE KEY message when the VTD system has disabled the starting system. The radio receives a message from the theft deterrent control module via the serial data circuit requesting illumination.

Your best bet have it towed to a qualified repair shop .
The vehicle theft deterrent (VTD) system functions are provided by the theft deterrent control module. When an ignition key is inserted into the ignition lock cylinder and the ignition is switched ON, the transponder embedded in the head of the key is energized by the exciter coils surrounding the ignition lock cylinder. The energized transponder transmits a signal that contains its unique value, which is received by the theft deterrent control module. The theft deterrent control module then compares this value to a value stored in memory, learned key code. If the value is correct the theft deterrent control module sends a random generated number to the transponder, this is called a challenge. Both the transponder and the theft deterrent control module perform a calculation on the challenge, if the calculations match the theft deterrent control module sends the fuel continue password via the serial data circuit to the Engine control module (ECM). If either the transponders unique value or the calculation to the challenge is incorrect the theft deterrent control module will send the fuel disable password to the ECM via the serial data circuit. The components of the VTD system are as follows:
• Theft deterrent control module
• Engine control module (ECM)
• Ignition key (Transponder)
• Ignition lock cylinder
• Security indicator

What is,if any,way i can diy a quick fix on a starter disabled code for a 1999 cadilac deville.can the chip reader be bypassed?


If your key has the resistor pellet with the short wires on both sides of the shank, I can provide a bypass method. Basically, you make a small resistor of ohms equal to the key, cut the passlock wires at the bcm, and solder the resistor to the bcm side of the wires. I have done this many times.
