  1. Unable To Adjust Clock--2008 STS wi Navigation

    I'd use the 08 software update on an 06, no idea what the 09-11 software would do. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  2. '06 3.6 Codes 0301, 0303

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    A rattle tells you the timing chain is on the way out. That's the big issue with the 3.6. They have a tendency to use oil, the tensioners are oil pressure driven, and well, you get the point. The 1st gen 3.6 is the worst one. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    Cold start, does it rattle? If it's warmed up before you get there be cautious. Personally, it's the 3.6, I'd steer clear regardless. That engine doesn't have the best reputation. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    Yes, 08+ has an official fix. Read the pages and pages in this thread, you'll find it. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    Sent you a PM with the fix details for your 2008.
  6. Transmission swaps

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    If both are the 6L50 I wouldn't see why not. The 6L50 was used in both the STS and CTS - I'd like someone else a little more knowledgeable to confirm though.
  7. 05 STS Remote start not working??

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    Stock radio is needed to activate the remote start feature for fobs #1 and #2 via driver configuration settings. A Tech II may be able to activate it if that isn't possible. Note: If the check engine light is on remote start is disabled regardless. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    Is it coming from the engine bay or the rear of the car? Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  10. No start after spark plug change 06 STS

    Could be the cheap plugs. I always go AC Delco when I replace plugs. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    OEM plugs? You sure you got the coils and injectors plugged back in correctly? Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    I used the video I posted to teach myself. Your 08 will be the same process. Not the funnest job in the world but it's really not that difficult, just time consuming. Any shop is probably going to charge 2 hours of labor minimum plus bulbs unless they let you bring in your own. I called a...

    Mine didn't. 2008 firmware worked great on my 2006. Sure, I lost the useless VR functionality and the next track steering wheel button changes the disc. But, I got the clock back, the date is right, plus I got turn by turn directions in the HUD, songs resume where I left off, and the magnetic...

    Bricking it was a risk I was willing to take, especially after learning of another 06 that updated successfully. These units can be had fairly cheaply so it was worth the risk to me to give it a shot. Thankfully, like the other 06 that was running newer firmware than me, it worked just fine...

    And Denso was wrong. They can't explain why the update worked in my 06 or the 05 I've confirmed working as well. According to Denso this "radio group" shouldn't have even allowed the update to run. I'll take losing VR and not being able to change tracks with the steering wheel controls vs a...

    Heard back from the guy with the 2005. It took the 2008 firmware and ran successfully as the VR button is dead and the config menu updated, however as of now the clock has not returned and he no longer gets a signal from any of the 12 satellites. I recommended a battery disconnect and reconnect...

    There's a guy with an 05 in an STS Facebook group that might give the 08 file a try. I'll report back if I hear back from him. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
