You disconnected the battery and upset the anti-theft system. The car isn't letting you take it anywhere!

Number 1 tip, when you remove the battery, maintain power using wires, jump leads or a charger so the power is never broken.

And you can't disable the system, you have to fix what's wrong. It is there to stop exactly what you are trying to do!

Tip & How-To about Cars & Trucks
Resetting a Vehicle Anti-Theft System
This is how you reset an anti theft system if you have the anti-theft light on, or your car is cranking, but you have no spark. The car starts and dies when you select a gear, or the car drives 100 yards and stops!

Doing a full reset of the anti-theft system.

Disconnect both battery leads for at least two hours.
Hold the negative and positive leads together for 5 minutes to fully discharge any power.
Put the key in the ignition, but not turned on. VERY IMPORTANT!
Connect the positive lead.
Connect the negative lead in one swift movement.
Wait 15 minutes for the system to fully reset.

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.

2006 caddy cts


The dealers know about a problem with the batteries and will replace under warranty. The original batteries were defective. I just bought a 2006 CTS and after test driving the car the battery died and wouldnt restart. The dealer replaced the battery. You should not have to pay a dime.
