Customer Question

I have a 2003 cadillac cts. I just bought it last week. Twice while I was driving it the engine shut off and the display read "starting disabled remove key". I was able to start it again without any problem. I saw online that this problem has happened to other 03 cts owners. Apparently they feel the solution could be a module emulator kit because of electrical noise. They gave a part number of 10357869. Do you agree with this assessment? I am mechanically inclined. How hard is this to install?

i agree completely with this assessment the emulator kit would solve your problem and it is not hard to install at all if you have basic understanding of mechanics
