Cadillac Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
sorry I hit this post by error ,
Does the steering unlock when you first push the start button?
Have you scanned the car for any codes set?
Are you using a GM scan tool?
I find it hard to believe there are no codes.
DOES THE STEERING UNLOCK WHEN YOU ATTEMPT TO START IT?
Will the headlights stay on while you try to start it?
Does the steering wheel ever lock, can you lock the wheel?
Sounds like a column lock module faulty.
Engine no start condition when this occurs.
I would say you need to get the car to a GM dealer now, more than likely the fault is the SCLM or BCM.
Or some wiring wiring fault in between.
If you are not using a GM scan tool, that's not a good start.
Now will you take it to a GM dealer, I am the first tech here to tell you the column lock is the cause.
I hope my advice has been of assistance to you.
Hope this helps.
The SLCM is the Steering Column Lock Module.
This module makes a small noise (comes off lock), when you go to start the vehicle.
Have you noticed that?
I would take all of your keys in case the dealer needs them for programming.
Yes, new column lock modules (SCLM) need to programmed after installation.
Ok, hope they sort for you.
