These cars are very sensitive to voltage drops or surges, never let anyone jump from your car if it was made after 2004, your just asking for trouble. Now the advise on checking the fuses first is sound and should be the first thing to check as it is so localized, but also be aware that the BCM controls all of the accessories on this vehicle, so if you don't find any blown fuses then you will have to go to the Cadillac dealer and have them reprogram the system. Normally this runs about a hundred bucks, but it's a Cadillac and they usually run higher.
