got a 2005 sts with northstar engine I drove it home from work everything worked fine next morning went to start it hit the brakes pushed the button all the dashboard lights turned off everything then 15 seconds later it came back on when I tried to scan it for codes there is no communication with the pcm but my scanner can communicate with the tcm and all the other moduals starter is not bad I jumped it from the relay box and it cranks the engine but still no start any one else have this kind of problem
I had a similar problem last week, stopped for lunch, got back in the car, starter clicked but didn't turn the eng over. As time went on I noticed a msg "THEFT ATTEMPT START DEACTIVATED" or something. But it appeared to me to be a weak battery,however the acc worked fine radio etc. I called the auto club to replace the Battery. They came out and did a test, said battery was ok. I had it towed, was going to the dealer but by the time I got in the Area they were closed. I took it home jumped the Batt next morning, took it to the dealer, they tested and said batt had a weak cell. I had them replace the Batt in my 2005 sts 4.6 as well as the key thob Batt. Worked ok this week. Roger
Did this get resolved? Non communication problems are usually power to the module in question or data wire continuity.
I too, ask, did it get resolved.
