Question about 2006 Cadillac STS

2 Answers

I have a brand new battery in my 2006 Cadillac STS, which sits in the garage a lot because I have another car. I have left the Fob in the car so entry is easy when I want to use the car. Could this be running the battery down? The car has no power and as I said the battery is about 2 - 3 months old. Does the fob use power? Thanks, srich506@comcast.net

Where is a nuetral safety switch located on an 2006 Cadillac STS. I just bought this car from and auction, there was no key. So I got one made, tried to crank and it says it's in as accessory mode then...


It probably thinks you're trying to program a key & fob. I really don't think you can just 'make' a key - I think it needs to be a regulation key fob + key for that particular car - security features and such.

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.

No FOB detected


I get this with my car and it is usually because it cannot sense the fob in my purse, so I move the purse to my lap. Other reason is the battery is getting low in the fob and needs replacing - at least that is my experience with my 09 Cadillac STS.

I changed my battery in my 2005 cadillac sts, and now it is showing that the starter is locked. fob locks and unlocks the car, but i can't get car to start. what do i do?


you can try this, with the battery connected lock the car using the key fob, make sure no keys are in the ignition. Disconnect the battery again and let it sit for 30 min or so, reconnect the battery and using the key fob unlock the car, it should start, if not repeat the procedure and insert the key into the door lock to unlock the car, both of these solutions should reset the security system. Good luck.

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.

2006 sts with keyless start won't recognize 'fob' and cannot get it started.


The battery in the FOB may be bad/weak look in the glove box and see if there is a small pocket tha the fob will fit in, if so put the fob there and see if it will start, if it does then the fob is weak.

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 !
