even with a new pcm, and its programmed by an aftermarket supplier you will need to pay a visit to the local gm dealer with cadillac support to be able to program the system for the antitheft to work correctly.

 replied 1 year ago

they usually start at 1 hr of labor.  depends on the exact vehicle but sometimes it also requires 2 keys.
