Has anyone had a problem with turning your key and nothing happening... I spent about 5 mins a few times trying to start my 04 CTS... nothing happens at all... anyone else experience this?

Could you descibe the problem you are having a little better? Is it just not cranking? Cranking but not turning over?

I put the key in... turn the key... the dash lights come on... everything is normal.. but the starter never engages.... it doesn't crank at all...

Sounds like a neutral safety switch. Move it through the gears once, then put into park. Try it again. if that doesn't work try putting it into neutral. Also, check to see if your back-up ligts come on in reverse.

Also, check for any security warnings or the security light (if it has one) blinking. This could be related to PassKey TDS somehow since your not getting ANY crank at all. NS Switch is also a common possibility.

Hey Junior, I've been having exactly that problem since I picked up my new '06 in April '06. It's driving me nuts and of course it always happens at the worst times. I've never tried not turning the key all the way, but will now. It's at the dealer AGAIN, and they can't figure it out. I forwarded you thread to them. Hopefully it helps. Thanks. I'll let you know how it goes.
