Setting up and managing Cadillac’s OnStar services involves several steps. Keep in mind that the specific steps and options might vary based on your Cadillac model and year. As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, here’s a general guide on how to set up and manage OnStar services:
Setting Up OnStar Services:
- Enrollment: When you purchase a new Cadillac, the dealership might offer you the option to enroll in OnStar services. You can also sign up for OnStar online or by calling OnStar customer service.
- Select a Plan: OnStar offers different service plans with varying features, such as emergency assistance, navigation, remote access, and more. Choose the plan that best suits your needs and budget.
- Provide Vehicle Information: You’ll need to provide your vehicle’s identification number (VIN) to activate OnStar services for your specific car.
