Did you ever find out what was causing this problem?

MY CADI CTS 2004 IS ALSO DOING THE SAME THING EXCEPT THE BATTERY IS NOT DYING OUT... I'VE HEARD THAT IT'S A COMPUTER PROBLEM BUT I'M NOT SURE I BOUGHT MY CAR WITH 2 ACCIDENTS ON IT AND I THINK THOSE ACCIDENTS HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT, BUT IM NOT SURE... IT COULD ALSO BE SENSORS BUT THEN THAT WOULD BE A LOT OF SENSORS. I GUESS I WILL BE AWAITING AN ANSWER AS WELL.

WHAT DID YOU DO? DID YOU HAVE THE WHOLE ECM REPLACED OR JUST REPAIRED? HOW MUCH DID IT COST? AND DID IT FIX ALL THE GLITCHES? PLEASE ANSWER ASAP I NEED A FIX TO THIS PROBLEM I HATE DRIVING AROUND LIKE THIS...
