Customer Question
Had a dead battery...

Had a dead battery, fully charged the battery. When pushing the button...get "NO FOB DETECTED". The needles on the dial will rotate clockwise then the DIC goes black. Changed the batteries in both remotes...same issue.

Mechanic's Assistant: Did you test the battery with a voltmeter? And have you ever changed one before?

Changed the battery in the car?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Cadillac?

2005 STS

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

Would like to get it running just to get it to the dealer...but will have to have it towed if you cannot assist.

Good afternoon, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** am a Cadillac technician and I would be happy to assist you with this today.

So it sounds like we have lost communication between the key fob and the signal receiver module. If the receiver is not working then there is one thing we can try before having to get it towed. Inside of the glovebox or center console you will see a small square slot that is the same size as the key fob, insert the key fob into this slot and try to start it, this creates a direct signal circuit for the fob. If you try this and it still does not start then unfortunately it would need to be towed. Let me know the results :)
