1 Answer

Hey the ecm is usually your issue whenever the key is stuck and security theft system is engaged. I’ve worked on multiple cadillac cts’s with this issue. I have ecm’s for your vehicle starting as low as 250. They’re easy to replace just check out any youtube tutorial on these things the difficulty level of changing these things are 1/10 super easy for a beginner who has no knowledge of fixing an automobile.
