    my cts 2008 wont start. abs light came on.

    around three weeks ago, my car was working pretty good until that night i got home from the market store and park my car in the drive way. 1 hour later, i was about to use my car and it didnt wanned to turn on at all. the folling messages appeared by the speedmeter:

    These are the three services needed:
    -Service traction control
    -Service stabilitrack

    I am leaving this thread here for Cadillac Cust Svc, but I copied it to the CTS forum as well where it will get more exposure.

    http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...start-abs.html

    Please check in that discussion also, as another CTS owner may be able to offer you some advice.

    If you would like you can PM or email me your complete contact information (Name, address, phone number, email address) along with your VIN number, mileage and the name of the dealership that you are working with. I would like to check into this for you.

    Re: my cts 2008 wont start. abs light came on.

    Hi,

    I'm having the exact same problem with my 08 CTS. Only I have a couple of things to add. The problem only occurs when the car sits in below freezing weather. I can usually get the car started by letting it sit with the electrical aux on for 2-5 minutes. Then turning the car off and try to start it again. It will sometimes start up but there will be service air bag and service tire gauge light on. If I turn the car off then on again, the lights go away. If I let the car sit until noon and it warms up in the sun, the car starts right up. In addition, if I'm lucky the car starts up on the first try but if I let it sit, the service lights come on. If I drive the car right away they do not.

    This is how I've had to start my car every morning instead of using the remote start that I paid for. It's been to the dealer twice but every time I bring it there the weather turns nice and the problem goes away. At this point I'm disgusted with the car and the dealership. Most of all I'm disgusted with the electrical engineering that didn't provide the software tools to record this issue when it occurs. Is Cadillac going to reimburse me for half of the year where the car is a $30k paper weight, probably not and that's understandable. But I would prefer if the electrical engineers were taken out back and whipped or better yet someone can help me fix this issue.

    -Steve
