LIKE WHEN YOU GET IN THE CAR, AND TURN THE KEY TO ON POSTION BUT THE ENGINE IS NOT RUNNING UNTIL YOU HAVE THE SERVICE LIGHT, OIL LIGHT, ABS LIGHT, AND THE OTHER LIGHT. THEN YOU TURN TO CRANK IT IT DONT DO NOTHING. LIKE IT JUST SHUT DOWN LIKE ITS THE WRONG KEY.
Cadillac Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Cadillac Technician replied 8 years ago
I need to know if you have more than one key to this vehicle, and whether you tried using all of your keys. You may have a faulty key, or there may be another problem with the theft deterrent system. But the starting point is to try starting the car with another key, and see if it works.
