I'm taking it in to the dealer on Monday after New Years-after I did some research and collaborated with the mechanics, it looks like the chip in my keys are going bad (which is why sometimes they work). They are going to replace my keys ($60/key plus $30 to program). Hoping THIS is the solution.


So what was the answer, I have the same problem.

Nope. The decided to change out the starter. I get the truck back later today - so we'll see if this indeed is the issue. Fingers Crossed!!!


So what ended up being the problem with your escade

Got it back with a new starter and we haven't had a problem since....1 week now. Hopefully that was it! If not-I'll follow up for sure.


Turns out it was the BCM. The battery was from 09 so I went ahead and bought the very best battery that would fit ( a deka AGM being sold as Duracell at Sams club. I always check the date code and get the newest battery on the shelve. I found one labeled A6 which is January 2016) We called OnStar to have it towed. They sent TN Towing INC who I would highly recommend. It was towed to Serra GMC in Madison TN who treated me fairly and I would highly recommend them as well. I will never be removing the battery again.
