REMOTE START WORKS AFTER I RECONNECT THE BATTERY NEG, FOR A SHORT TIME, THEN REPEAT.

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

YES

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

07 STS V6

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

A check engine light that is illuminated will cause the remote start to not work. Also even if the check engine light is not on and there is a code stored in the computer, the remote start will not work. Also if one of the doors is not getting locked, say from a failed lock actuator the remote start will not work. Also the hood ajar switch, which is built into the hood latch, is a very common item to fail to cause the remote starter to not work.
