Which Gold Key Do I Need?
The first step is to take a look at your current key. If the head is square, it’s an ignition key. If it’s round, it’s the key for the door, trunk, and glovebox.
The next step is to look for a letter that’s stamped into the key stalk (the long part of the key). If your current key isn’t too worn
and it’s an original Cadillac key, you should see a letter, A through K. Instead of a letter, you might also see a small, black pellet. If so, you have
a VATS key. Click here for more detail on identifying the correct VATS key.
