Engine Mechanical problem
2006 Cadillac DTS V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 52000 miles
I have a 2006 DTS, base model.
1. Car won't start 2 times per 3 years. Battery seems to be drained. When I try to open doors from the fob, only partial lights are blinking on side mirrors. When I try to start the car it seems to not have battery power and random messages appear on the panel. Tow truck drivers was able to start it from jump start but from the six or so attempt. He said it looks like security system. It happened when car was a month old and than three years old. Dealership did not find any problem.
2. Engine started stalling at about 45K. Car is in drive and engine stalls randomly time to time. On the freeway it picks up after jerk, at very low speed I need to go back to Park and start engine.
3. Car is on the dealership for a week and they can't find anything.
I am out of warranty now, but it started while it was under warranty. Dealer admits the problem, but cannot fix it.
Any suggestions please?
