sorry......the procedure you described will do nothingYour Ignition Key has a "Resistor" in the metal shank of the KeyWhen that is inserted in the Ignition Switch Cylinder, the Ignition Switch Cylinder reads the Resistor Value & sends this Value to the Computer to Start & Run.There are "15" different Resistor Values.Only One is used in the Resistor in the KeyThe best way to "ByPass" this is to use a Kit made by:http://newrockies.com/There Kit is easy to install, but you need some Mecahnical & Electronics background to Install correctlyLet me know if you need further
I read & understand what you posted............The New Key has not been Programmed correctly & / or the Communication Control Module may need to be replacedWhen a New Key is made, it has to be Programmed like this:
Key Replacement (No Spare Key Available)
If the Ignition Key is lost and there is no spare key, determine the mechanical code from the code on the Ignition Key Lock Cylinder. The code may also be determined from the dealer invoice for the vehicle, or from the Cadillac Zone Office.Cut a new key to this mechanical code. Use a blank PASS-Key(R)II test key which has a no resistance pellet. This key will be used to operate the Ignition Switch for the remaining steps.Remove the Hush Panel under the Steering Column and disconnect the two-cavity connector leading into the Steering Column.IMPORTANT:
If the vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Inflatable Restraints (SIR), do not confuse the SIR 2-Way (yellow) connector with the Ignition Switch Lock Cylinder Harness Connector.Insert the male half of the connector into the female pigtail connector from the J 35628-A Interrogator.Set the key code selector on the Interrogator (J 35628-A or equivalent) to "1."Attempt to start engine using the key made in step 2.If engine starts, the key code selector is set to the correct electrical code. Cut a new key having this electrical code. The new key will be the customer 5 replacement key.If engine does not start, turn Ignition Switch to "OFF," then turn the key code selector to the next higher position. Wait four minutes and attempt to start the engine using the new electrical code. Use the 4-minute timer on the J 35628-A Interrogator to indicate the 4-minute interval. Start the timer by depressing the "Start" Rocker Switch. The "RED" Indicator will turn off at the end of a four minute interval. This procedure must be repeated until the engine can be started. Cut a new key having the electrical code which allowed the vehicle to start.
