- Wait for the new key to arrive. Most likely, the Cadillac dealer will have the transmitter in stock. The emergency key may need to be ordered and can take between three and four days to be delivered to your dealer.
- Once the keys are at your dealer, you must take your Cadillac to the dealer to get the keys programmed. This is an extra cost; therefore, check with the service department to get a quote on how much it will cost to program the new keys. The cost to program Cadillac keys varies between models. On older models, you may be able to program keys yourself. Search for instructions online.
