    Try another key if you have a spare as sometimes the chip on the key itself will fail and the ignition system won't work because the theft deterrent thinks someone is trying to steal it and if that doesn't work you will need to go to Cadillac parts dept and have another made

    Try cleaning the key with alcohol,& if that doesn't work use a fine file & run it over the key 2-3 times. If that doesn't work you will need a new key.
