I have a 2005 cadillac sts with the push start button. For the last couple days i have been getting gas and after putting the gas in, i go to push my start button and my car does not start. When sitting for 10 to 15 min, then my car starts. I have no issues with starting > only when i get gas. Has anyone had this problem???
Yes, i am pushing on the brake pedal. The car starts up just fine once i get it back started. Ive had the car for a while, so this problem just started saturday. I got gas again today and once i got back in the car to start it, the car wouldn't start. I just went out to start it again and no problem what so ever. My engine light comes on every time my boyfriend doesnt put the gas cap on properly. I wonder if this has something to do with it
This may the a purge valve in the fueling circuit; this has been reported for other vehicles (here) and also other generic vehicles (other forums I frequent). This may or may not set a code; perhaps take it to your local dealer or other service provider and ask if this may be your problem (or don't present a solution, just state your symptoms).

Re: 2005 sts push start problems
If you have a V6 it's the EVAP purge solenoid, guaranteed. It's on the back side of the engine on the passenger side, right on top. Take off the beauty cover and look for a cylindrical part, you'll need the part with the electrical connector going to it.
Do yourself and your wallet a favor and do it yourself, it will seriously only take 10 minutes, tops.
