Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

Are you saying you have diagnosed your battery drain issue to be ing faulty cables and that is the only repair info needed?

No I need to know how to shut down the slam system and why does it have 2 positive battery cables
Cadillac Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Cadillac Technician replied 19 days ago

You wrote slam, did you mean alarm?

Is this an OEM or aftermarket alarm?

What is the alarm doing wrong?
