    Exclamation 06 3.6 cranks but doesnt start, need help!

    I have an 06 CTS 3.6L model and i'm having an issue where the car wont start. The car has been running perfect for the past 2 years but yesterday when it was started it putt-putt-putted for a few seconds and shut off. Now the car wont turn back on. When i turn the key i hear the fuel pump but the car cranks and just doesn't start. If it would help you guys help me, I could try and upload a video of me attempting to turn it on.

    Thanks in advance

    Im no Caddy guru yet, but from what ive read the CPS sensor tends to go bad on these causing the car to not start, may want to look into that. There is a write up on how to replace, use the search feature im sure youll find it. Goodluck, make sure you update us if you get it to run!

    i'm assuming you're talking about the crankshaft position sensor? i will look into this

    ----------

    I should also point out that my friend connected a code reader to it and didn't get any codes at all and the check engine light is not on
