it does start, but radio doesn't work in any position. Simply says theft lock on radio screen
Cadillac Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Cadillac Technician replied 1 year ago

Your radio is showing this message due to :

  • The vehicles battery dead or disconnectecd for more than 6 hours.
  • The radio has failed
  • The radio was replaced or removed.

A scan tool is needed to see if the vin# ***** be reentered into the radio to get it out of lock mode.

I guess I should take it to the dealer?
Cadillac Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Cadillac Technician replied 1 year ago

The dealer does have the tool needed, it is hit pr miss at independent shops.

how am I supposed to get it? I'm a femal, so I don't understand! Lol
Cadillac Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Cadillac Technician replied 1 year ago

How are you supposed to get what? There is nothing to get for this issue. The radio needs an attempted reprogramming to see if that is all that is needed as well to see if that fails indicating the radio is bad.

Not at all. Thought you help, not tell me to go to dealer @
Cadillac Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Cadillac Technician replied 1 year ago

Sorry you were not pleased. I have no control over the questions customers ask us. You happened to have asked a question that can not be resolved at home DIY unless you have a dealer level scan tool. That does not make me a bad tech nor does it make my answer wrong it just means you asked how to address a concern that you do not have the means to fix yourself which is not uncommon. Working on cars is not easy and quite often does require special tools.

Sorry you feel my assistance had no value.
