i checked the starter fuse. its good. i tested the accessory relay. thats good. my RAT relay behind the seat is good. the anti theft goes away when key is in the ON position
Customer reply replied 8 months ago

Cadillac Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 8 months ago

ok. pull the starter relay out and let me know how the prongs are numbered. 30.87,86,85 or 1,2,3,5

Ask Your Own Cadillac Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
the starter relay is the 30/85 .. has 5 prongs
Cadillac Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 8 months ago

after you check those fuses, then check for voltage in slot 30 of the starter relay plug

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
i checked the fuses all good.
i cant check the 30 post i misplaced my multi meter yesterday.when i turn the ignition to the ON. position. for the first run cycle, my displays are flashing( radio, d.i.c, speedomiter.i have my horn fuse out. due to the noise volume in my neighborhood.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
also i believe my CMU is going thru the checks but i here a repetitively ticking sound from the fuse box in the engine bay. the sounds resembles the hands of a grandfather clock if i had to describe it
Cadillac Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 8 months ago

ok, that why the lights are blinking.. disconnect the battery. both terminals. short them together for 30 seconds, then let them hang loose for 15 minutes. reconnect. see if that resets everything
