    This is the forum CTS-Vs rather than SRXs, but it sounds like you need the ignition lock cylinder repaired or replaced. I assume the car is off by now, but if not disconnect the negative battery cable.

    Hi Pam,

    Glad darkman stepped up & I hope you'll find further community assistance over at the SRX forums:

    I would recommend visiting your Cadillac dealership for service, and if you need any help locating the Cadillac dealerships around you, please don't hesitate to email me anytime at
