I've encountered this same issue to where radio, trunk, or gas door will not open. Checked all fuses, etc. Pulled the module from under the dash and it looks fine to me. What part should be resoldered?
Had car less than a month, knew nothing about cadillacs, cel came on, then started flashing s. Ok I know I'm probably over my head, took to a auto electric shop. Had car there 3 weeks picked up every weekend and every weekend new problem. Doors started unlocking and locking themselves, not always very inconsistent, Next weekend mechanic still doesnt know what to do, barely looked at car but did have to jump start since car locked and unlocked doors all night...his claim. I notice security is flashing more, hear clicking when driving. dropped car back off, since its a small town highly recommended, trunk stops working, but sometimes it does..? ciggarette lighter in ashtray and back seat stop working completely but one by ebrake still works. The shop says they checked a few things and disconnect neutral switch cleaned off and reconnected, but doesnt think its fixed, still not sure. Drove home and looked down speedometer doesnt work and abs light is on, go up a hill and starts working.,Mechanics answer was buy new neutral safety switch, not sure if it will fix it. DIDN'T TAKE MY CAR BACK. started trying to figure out on my own, had researched a lot while in shop. checked codes again, fixed alternator, o2 sensor bank 1 sensor 2, and camshaft position sensor. according to codes car should be golden! Its not nothing has gotten better, in fact now it seems to over heat more, even though temp gauge says its under 3/4, I can hear boiling under hood, fan kicks on just fine, white smoke or vape came out of hood going up hill in limp mode, gauge said nothing wrong with temp. AND CODE STILL SAYS CAR NEEDS CAM SENSOR???? Discovered oil sending unit seems to be leaking oil onto alternator, onstar light is now on, still has abs light come on now and again speedometer usually works during those episodes. Oh and the electric windows dont always work for passengers, lock switch or not! and car acts like alternator is going out AGAIN LESS THAN 50 MILES, I hardly drive this car, when I do it starts having issues after its warmed up. ALSO TRIED EVERYTHING TO CLEAR CEL EVEN CODE READER, TAKING BATTERY CABLES OFF, TOUCHING THEM TOGETHER OFF BATTERY, TURNING KEY WITHOUT STARTING. nothing is resetting code. Only one left is cam sensor, is there more than one? What am I missing???
Need to change bank 2 sensor 1. Can't afford mechanic. Need to do myself
