I HAVE TRIED THE METHOD OF RAISING THE COMPARTMENT DOOR SHUTTING OFF MY CA OPENING THE DOOR IN ATTEMP TO RESET, HAVE TRIED GOING TO THE CLOCK SCREEN, THIS DID NOIT WORK. I AM TOLD IT WILL COST ABOUT 1300 TO GE THIS FIXED. IF YOU HAVE NOT HAD TROUBLE WITH YOURS YOU ARE LUCKY……. YOU MAY STILL BE ENJOYING THE ” CADILLAC EXPERIENCE!!!!! IT IS A NIGHTMARE AND CADILLAC HAS KNOWN THERE HAS BEEN A PROBLEM FOR YEARS

    1. Hello Pat! Unfortunately, the end outcome with having a problem like the ones you’ve described with your CUE is to have it replaced. Hopefully you’re under warranty or you have bought an extended warranty when you purchased the SRX. Good luck!
