I have a 2003 Cadillac Deville and had a new set of keys…

Customer Question
I have a 2003...

I have a 2003 Cadillac Deville and had a new set of keys made. The gentleman took out the ignition to cut us a new key and also we had to replace the battery. Now all the lights are on but it won't crank and start. It says Start Disabled Remove Key.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuel supply? And are all the spark plugs working?

Yes I have. They are in perfect condition

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your DeVille yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have replaced the battery and had a replacement key made.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I think that's probably all

It sounds like the wrong type of key was made, I would recommend bringing key to dealership and having them make a copy. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
