my key is stuck in the ignition of my 2006 cadillac cts
Posted by lom8376 on
2005 CTS 3.6 Dead battery, key stuck, service anti theft and nothing happens when you turn key, Ttried everything, ECM reset, key memory reset, charged battery to 12.7 volts, locked door w remote and opened w key, anyway you get the idea. After 3 days of online reading and trying, THIS IS WHAT WORKED, 1. put key into on position 2. removed sarter relay from front fuse panel 3. jumped 1st pin closest to fender and passenger seat with pin that is closest to motor and front fender. I used a paper clip and just made contact long enough for car to start. ran car for five minutes and took key out and everything went back to normal. then I took car to advance auto parts to have engine light reset. if car does not go back to normal you have ECM (car computer) failure. video on YouTube under "no crank, no start"

I need to program a key fob for a 2004 Cadillac CTS. I just purchased the car used. it came with ONE key and nothing els. I have recently purchased a keyless entree remote suitable for the car and was wondering how i can program it myself.
my friend programmed his own on a 2001 cadillac STS. So there must be a way...

Remote Key FOB Information
1. Close all the vehicle doors.
2. Insert the ignition key into the ignition lock cylinder.
3. Press and hold the door unlock switch.
4. While holding the door lock switch in the unlock position, cycle the ignition ON, OFF, ON, OFF.
5. Release the door unlock switch. The doors will lock and unlock to confirm the program mode.
6. Press and hold the LOCK button and the UNLOCK button simultaneously on one transmitter. After a delay of approximately 15 seconds, the doors will lock and unlock to confirm the programming of that transmitter.
7. Repeat the previous step to program up to 4 transmitters.
8. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position in order to exit the keyless entry transmitter programming mode.
9. Operate the transmitter functions in order to verify correct system operatio

everything came on fine except it wouldn't start, battery light didn't even come on only engine light did. It clicked couple of times when I turned key. Then I tried to jump start it and it went totally dead, no clicking no nothing, couldn't even lock the car with the remote. Battery is almost 5 years old?

i had a 2003 ctc that did the same thing, it wouldn't start or would make a clicking sound and about 1 mth after the problem started aND mechanics could not find a problem my car caught on fire and burned completely from something under the right side of the hood. i had just parked the car and got out, it happened really fast. the fire chief said the cause was unknown????

Hi, I have a Cadillac CTS 04, and periodically the "Security Theft System" will come up and the car cannot start and the key will not come out. We have disconnected the battery and the car seems to be fine for a while and then it happens again. What's the problem?

2004 cadillac cts gas gauge broken; it is only the gas gauge that constantly reads empty; upon completely disconnecting the battery for a while and then reconnecting it, it works for a couple of minutes then goes back to zero. HELP!
Posted by tyler... on
The reason the guage is staying at empty is because it has set a code for a fuel level sensor. This car has 2 so it could be either one, or a wiring issue (unlikely). When you disconnect the battery, you likely either clear the code or reset it as not current so it allows the gauge to work for a short time until the code sets again. Have it scanned and I am sure you will find a code likely P2066 or P2068 for the level sensors.

what do when my key gets stuck in my ignition to my Cadillac cts
Posted by Anonymous... on
If the steering will lock is on take pressure off the lock by turning the steering wheel one way or the other. Otherwise if it just jams up oil the hole where the key goes then this will help the tumblers from getting stuck. Next would be have a new key made. If that doesn't do it replace the lock. Good luck.

CD MECH ERROR
Posted by glen_boyer on
For a 2004 CTS CD changer that gives you the message "cd mech error", unhook the negative battery cable and let sit for 10 minutes, then reconnect. The changer will reset itself and will then work correctly.

What does if mean when battery saver is activated on 2004 Cadillac cts
Generally it means you are drawing more power than the alternator is putting out, or if the engine is off the stereo or some other accessory is drawing power. The battery saver is warning you that you have just enough power left to start the engine. Could also mean you have a bad battery connection or your alternator is not putting out over 13 volts. If the engine is idling with air conditioning and stereo on for any length of time it could also trigger this warning as the alternator at idle speed may be unable to keep the battery at full.

control module code $7EA
These are not trouble codes. They are addresses of multiple ECU control modules that the scanner found. You can navigate each one, subject to what it reports. Any actual trouble codes would be stored within each module separately if there are any.
