#6559 of 6595 2003 cts won't start
Jan 13, 2008 (8:05 am)
i have a 2003 cadillac cts. battery died several times over the last month. jumped it each time with no problem. died again. tried to jump with no success. got a new battery from dealer. replaced in my driveway. won't start. all dash features, lights, radio, etc light up fine. no click when cranking. no start. thought it would be too coincidental that the starter would go, as well. any ideas?

My old '03 CTS did the same thing. Went through two dealer batteries before the issue got resolved. Ask your dealer to check out the tech service bulletins on this. There were more than a few of us that had this problem, unique to the '03 model year.

Just wondering who would buy a 550 HP Cadillac CTS-V when they come out in Q4?
With gas prices in the 3.00+ up to $?.?? is a car that will probably get 12/22 mpg something you want to buy?
FYI I am not a CTS owner.

people who can afford the price tag on it..dont worry about gas prices......if you are concerned over your MPG, you arent in the market for this car...IMHO

I have a 2003 CTS, 80,000 miles, its sitting in my driveway, last week I was driving and the car completely just shut off, almost like it ran out of gas. It had a full tank. Then I tried to crank it and it was trying to start but wouldnt crank all the way. I let it sit for 10 min and it started...attempted to drive it and it died again, do you have any idea whats going on? A few people say it may be the fuel filter? Some say a sensor???

My cts wont start, it does after 10min then dies again....power on the dash slowly fades....but then in 10min its ok, then drives and dies...2003 same year, 80,000miles.

a used (obviously) 2004 CTS, 58K miles, black on black...I sat in it and I must say that the seat was quite comfortable...no time to drive it, but I was quite impressed with the interior...
I could add CTS to my never-ending list of cars I almost hope to buy one day, assuming I live that long...

Couldn't agree more. Relative to my Cigarette boat that gets 1mpg with twin 415hp 502ci engines and weighs about 7-9,000 lbs the milage on any car is good
If you can't afford the gas, it's probably not the car for you

My car is doing the same thing. When I try to start it, it acts like it is going to start but doesn't. The battery is fine and I have a full tank of gas. After letting it sit, it will eventually start but then it dies again. I took it to the dealership and the computer comes back with nothing wrong and no codes. They don't know what is wrong. Did you ever find out what is wrong?
