There are some 'local friendly mechanics' with the equipment to program GM modules. One example is Fleet Services in Everett, WA. You will have to ask around wherever you are. Also, you are not necessarily stuck with your Caddy dealer. Any GM dealer should be able to do it.

The mechanic doing the SCAM test he first thought it was the BCM but he also said that it could be an electrical problem and would need me to bring it back for a more in-depth review. But he also said for me to disconnect the battery and touch the two cables together for a brief minute. He said that has worked in the past re-setting the main computer. I did but it didn't immediately work. A day or so later the radio kicked back to my programed stations and everything worked. I'll be surpried if this works for any period of time.

Rebooting system tend to relate to software issues. As I understand it you bought this car with this problem, you need to tread softly in regards to professional techs. Some actually do try to help you out, your "scam tech" sounds like he maybe good guy...why he try to re-boot it to see if it helped.
It will be OK

Default None of my windows will roll down!!! CADILLAC CTS 2003

Hey all,

So i have an 03 Cadillac CTS with a similar problem. All the windows won't roll down from neither the driver control side or the respective window control area. When i press the button, all I hear is a click noise (not constant, just one click as if some fuse is blown or so). I've taken it to a dealer and a local tire shop. The dealer told me something and the tire shop gave me a second opinion (given that this tire shop has a very good rep, i took their word). They said they ran tests on my car, reset the car, took the battery out for 30 minutes, power tested the computer box, even hooked up one of their own machines to try and get the window down (this last one worked, but when they connected everything back on my car, it wouldn't work). EVERYTHING checked out, they said my car tested excellent, but they just couldn't find the source of the problem after holding my car hostage for 2 days. Even my window regulators are all in great shape. PLEASE, ANY kind of help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!!!!

Unhappy Windows & trunk release not working consistently.

2003 CTS-My front seat passenger side power window doesn't work it only goes down from the driver side control. Plus I noticed that my trunk release button from the hand held key controller doesn't always work. It forces me to use the trunk opener button inside the driver door panel. Is this a sign that the window module needs replaced? Or is there a more serious problem.
