    I have the same problem as magicman. The dealer claims the airbag module caused the whole problem. They took my stick shift apart to get it out of park and took my steering column apart to get the key out. They claim the airbag module is under the console. I have a cadillac cts 2003. It only has 52,000 KM on it and has been in the shop 30 times for repairs. What a lemon.

I just had this same problem with my caddillac..my temp, gas gauge would stop working..anti theft system on the msg board..ac would stop cooling and key stuck in the ignition..your key is faulty and is not communicating properly with your responder..you ought to get your self a new key and programed cuase if you keep using it like that you can burn the responder and the car will lock it self and stop turing on ..i learned the hard way if your key still works go get a new one before it stops working.. in the mean while under the steering wheel there are two small openings one bigger than the other the smallest one and the first one is the emergency release for your key..with a small flat key stick the key up the opening horizontly and push in you will a feel a small bending when that happens try to play around with the ignition switch like if you be taking your key off normaly and that should release your key but that is just a tempory fix..get a new key

I have been having the same problem and it kicks on when i am driving. i have found that when i put the emergency break on it seems to reset the system for a while. it is just a temp fix but it has helped me get the keys out and lock the car.

The Cadallic Company say they never heard of this. Can we please send this to the Cadallic Company. They act like I am the only one that this has happen to. My dealer say they can not do any thing about it because the light go on and off and they cannot run a check unless the lights are on. What am I to do. They say my key is fine(it was tested). Help

    this happened after the battery died and was recharged, then a new battery was put in; but they were still unable to get it out of security mode; which kept it from starting. They said that it was stuck in security mode and 2 places & towes later, the diagnosics did not allow them to get it out of secruity...So now it has been towed to the Cadillac dealership.

    This happened to our 2005 STS, after 2 towes, 4 diagnostic machines...We were told that when the battery died and was recharged that it went into security mode and after they replaced the battery; it remained in secruity. They were unable to resolve even with the GM diagnostic machine & codes, so now it is towed for the 3rd time to the Cadillac dealership. They just got an okay to tear out the dash looking for the problem, expecting it to be a cluster module (circuit) Wish us luck and how do we see if it is under warranty. Is it 8 years or 80,000. It is within the 8 year mark, but has more than 80,000 miles on it.

Can you take radio out of one cadillac srx and install in different seria number srx


the radio anti theft comes into play when you disconnect the power supply for the radio. If you want to put it back into the vehicle you took it out of you will still have to enter the anti theft code to get it to work. The anti theft works for the radio and not the vehicles.

Anti theft won't reset. Battery won't charge. Tries to start on it's own.


The system may be activating because there is not enough power in the battery?
Check the batter connections and power cables.
Are the posts clean and tight.
Are the cables going to the battery, alternator and starter in good condition. Check to see if the insulation on the cables have not worn away some ware along the cables and shorting out.
