It's very possible that the radio and your problem are related. Have a reputable stereo installer check the reinstallation of the radio.

Update: The Cadillac is up & running.........the problem turned out to be the pigtail pins that goes to the crank sensor & PCM.

I am still having this problem. Could you explain what pigtail pins are and how they go to the pcm/crank sensor? Is there a disconnect, a failed part, or electrical resistance?
