  3. Hi Philip. You should post this as a new topic in the forum here: http://caddyinfo.ipbhost.com

    Generally the shop manual has the info you are looking for. New Helm Inc. shop manuals can be purchased from http://www.helminc.com or often can be found on ebay at a discount. They are the technical documents that GM Technicians use.

  17. I have a 2011 Cadillac STS and it won’t start because its saying that the starting is disabled because of a theft issue. What do I do

  18. First, try the other ignition key. Sometimes the issue is dirty or worn key or tumbler. Next, spray WD-40 on the key and insert it into the ignition tumbler, then remove it and wipe it off. Spray, insert, remove, wipe. We are trying in this way to clean off the inside of the ignition tumbler.

    The correct solution is to replace the ignition tumbler and keys, but that can be expensive. The security is called the VATS system, and there is info online on how to bypass it.

    Your driver side oxygen sensor either needs replacement, the wiring to it has an issue, the fuse has blown, or a related communication issue with the PCM.
