My 2007 Ext began doing the same thing this past month. Out of the blue I noticed I could not unlock it with the remote. I manually unlocked it and tried to turn it on and nothing. The windows, locks or lights would not turn on. Everything seem dead except the lights on the gauges and the ac display. I disconnected the positive cable and reconnected it and everything worked fine for a few days and at random times I would have the same problem.

I went to the Cadillac dealer and purchased some a new positive cable and the guy at the parts dept. told me that they sell a lot of those cables because they go bad quite often. I will install them sometime this week as the dealer would charge me $200 just to install them. I believe they are called solenoid cables/wires. Hopefully this will solve my issue. It is very frustrating not knowing when it will not turn on. I am also out of warranty and as you probably know, everything cost an arm and leg when something goes wrong on a Caddy!

Hello russg,

I apologize that you are experiencing an issue with your Escalade not starting. I see that you are out of warranty and do not want to take your vehicle to the dealership, but if you do decide to end up taking your vehicle to one, I would like to assist you in working with them. Please private message me if that is the route you would like to pursue. Thank you very much for your time.

Does it crank? If not, could be your starter. I just went for one of those and the cable since it was rotted out to. I have an 07 ESV with 110k on it. I'm waiting for the new Escalade to come out. Hate it when I have to change things on it.
