    READ THE EFFIN MANUAL.

    but on another note...hmm...look into getting a Metra installation kit, wiring harness, etc. Metra's website can tell you what installation kit to get.

    Just go to "Select a vehicle", put in what you know, and bam. Tells you the dash kit, wiring harness, antenna adapter, etc.

    Having done a few Caddy's in my day, my first question is does it have the bose stereo. And if so, did you know you're gonna have to remove/replace all your speakers and amps. If I remember correctly the radio/DIC integration in those cars requires some skill to separate.

    Also you might be able to get better answers to your questions over on the caddilacforums.com board. Jason is the audio moderator over there and is quite knowledeable. There is one good tutorial on modding the CTS that I know of from MBai on cadillacforums. His webpage is here.

    If you're not installing a CarPC, this probably isn't where you need to be (a Kenwood In-dash DVD doesn't come close).

    Hi,

    This is what I did to drive the sound from my carpc through the factory speakers.
    The DIC and all the buttons in the dash and the steering wheel are 100% functional.

    I hope it helps.
