I have put a new keyless entry module in my 2006 cadillac sts now i cant program my old key fobs .. I had the car diagnosed at the dealership and was told to put in the module ... the car would start and run and the dash would reset and shut the car off it would start back up but do the same thing over and over any help would be great !

Sounds like your theft deterrent system is working properly. Whenever a RCDLR module is replaced, (it should come with two pre-programmed fobs) the ECM (Engine Control Module) needs to have the new passcode of the RCDLR programmed by a dealer.

Not sure which "problem" you're referring to. RCDLR replacement, ECM programming, or missing fobs?

I've had a RCDLR replaced and the dealer was able to get it to recognize just one (old) fob, so I had to buy a new #2 fob. Certain components have to be re-programmed after replacement, like the infotainment unit (which has to have the VIN flashed into it) for theft deterrent purposes.

Good Evening Randy,

I am glad to hear that you plan on working with the dealership regarding the ECM reprogram. Feel free to send me a PM with your VIN, mileage, phone number, and the name of your involved dealership if you would like me to facilitate this process. Enjoy your evening and I hope to hear from you soon.

Best Regards,


Brandon M.

OP - RCDLR problems are rare. Your issues resulting from efforts to save some money by buying parts from non-dealer sources and installing them without supporting documentation & tools are fairly common. These really aren't DIY cars unless you take advantage of some of the available resources and plan ahead.

I hope you're doing well now. If not, let us know. There are many smart & experienced members on the forum. Most like to help.
