    DTS power windows

    I have the following problem with my 2006 DTS (Performance) and am looking to see if anyone else has experienced a similar problem and if so, have you been able to resolve it.

    On occasion the right two door windows and locks act as follows:

    From the driver door controls press the lock button:
    1 – The front passenger door will not lock or unlock.
    2 – The rear passenger door locks and unlocks OK.

    From the driver door controls press the window buttons:
    1 – The front passenger door window will not open or close.
    2 – The rear passenger door window will not open or close.
    3 – Both door windows will open from their individual controls.

    When I turn off the ignition, remove the key, and get out all returns to normal.
    I think must actually get off the driver seat but I have yet to verify this.
    May be some kind of switch – in the seat?

    I have demonstrated this to the service department. I did this by (when the problem on one of the few times that it happened) going to the service departments entrance, calling them on my cell phone and having them meet me in the parking area. They verified the problem but after calling Cadillac’s tech support line still do not have a solution. Their next step is to leave the car and try to trace the wiring.

    Any advice or insight will be appreciated.

    It could be a wiring problem as the dealer suggests, or perhaps the settings in the personalization mode (accessed via the DIC)? Too weird.

    Good luck.

    Re: DTS power windows

    I've experienced the lock problem sporadically. Usually occurs when I start the car for the first time in the morning, only way front doors will lock is to manually push each lock down, but the rears will lock and unlock on command.

    Since it happens so sporadically, maybe once every couple of weeks, that I just ignore it as a quirk in the car. But if it starts to occur more often, then I will definitely bring it to the dealers attention.

    One other thing I've noticed is that if I turn on the radio before the NAV opening screen disappears, the whole system locks up. The only way I've remedied this is to wait about 10 minutes and restart the car. Just immediately stopping and starting the car does not reset the system. Thankfully this has only happened twice and I've self diagnosed and remember to not push the power button until the NAV screen has gone blank.

    Thanks for the feedback. Mine also is sporadic. I was able to demo to the dealer so it is a matter of record. I actually had them come out to the car on one of the few times that it happened. I will make a post if this is ever resolved. I will try what you describe with the NAV system to see what happens. The 10 minutes wait leads me to believe that is the same 10 minutes that it takes for the radio etc to shut off automatically after stopping the engine. You may want to try to get it to lock up, remove the key, and immediately get out of the car to see if that cause it to reset. Best of luck.

    Thanks for the response. I don't think that it is in the DIC because it only occurs ocassionaly and when get out of the car and back in it acts normal (for awhile).

    I just tried as you described and my nav system does NOT lock up.

    Tried to duplicate several times this weekend to no avail. Radio and NAV functioned properly on each occasion.

    I did have one instance where the front passenger window would not express up.
