Had the same problem. 2005 Cadillac CTS with the 3.6L V6 would not start after a oil change. I started looking for wires and stuff that might have been disconnected. That is when I realized that I had also checked the air filter. The hose from the air filter box to the intake had come slightly loose from the intake. The car would not run with an air leak at the air cleaner box box hose. Put the hose on tight and problem fixed.

Did you also check the air filter? The Cadillac CTS is very finicky about the differential pressure across the air filter. Checking the air filter often causes the hose between the air filter box and the intake to come loose or start to leak. This will cause the car to run rough or die immediately after starting.

Where is the idle control sensor for 2004 Cts Cadillac


There is none.Idle is controlled by your computer. If you have problems, check these. Vacuum lines behind throttle body. You may have to replace your air flow sensor. You can also try this:
Engine cold.
Turn your key to on position for a full minute. Don't start the car.
Turn key off for 10 seconds
Turn key on for 10 seconds. (Don't start)
Turn key off for 10 seconds. Then start the car. Might work but in all probability your main airflow sensor (MAP) is the problem.

How to disarm the anti theft system on an 05 CTS Cadilac


A reset is ten minutes on and 30 seconds off. One time. Relearn is three times this. Older vehicles used to be 5 to 10 seconds off. now is 30. There are minimal times on and off, but I haven't found the maximum time. I have left cars on for 30 minutes and off for 30 minutes and the reset/relearn has still worked. Just a note , the securit relearns in the off position.

How reset oil change light 2011 charger


Your vehicle is equipped with an engine oil change
indicator system. The "Oil Change Due" message will
flash in the EVIC display for approximately 10 seconds
after a single chime has sounded to indicate the next
scheduled oil change interval. The engine oil change
indicator system is duty cycle based, which means the
engine oil change interval may fluctuate dependent upon
your personal driving style.

Unless reset, this message will continue to display each
time you cycle the ignition to the ON/RUN position. To
turn off the message temporarily, press and release the
MENU button. To reset the oil change indicator system
(after performing the scheduled maintenance), perform
the following procedure:

1. Without pressing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE
START/STOP button and cycle the ignition to the ON/
RUN position (Do not start the engine.)

2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times
within 10 seconds.

3. Without pressing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE
START/STOP button once to return the ignition to the
OFF/LOCK position.

NOTE: If the indicator message illuminates when you
start the vehicle, the oil change indicator system did not
reset. If necessary, repeat this procedure.

Done cars have a kill switch if they are low on oil. Check your oil. If the oil is good, it may be the ignition switch.

I just changed my oil and Now the car won't start.


Your battery needs to be around 12.6 volts to start. Try jumpstarting your vehicle, or purchase a cheap battery charger for around 20$, and let it charge for a couple hours.

My 2004 Cadillac cts ran low on oil to a small leak on the freeway, the car shut off as soon as the low oil light came on. I am sitting in a rest stop 250 miles from home. I walked a few miles in the rain...


You should be able to start, what is the fluid level bring it to the recommended level crank it allow the lifter to solidify and compression will build up

How long after draining the oil from the car should I wait to run the car?


i am not sure what you are asking. if it is what i think then you are heading for trouble.
NEVER, NEVER, NEVER run a engine without oil in it. you will destroy the motor. drain your oil, change the filter then add the amount of oil your owners manual says to . Then start it and check for leaks.
