If you pulled the battery out without using the saver tool that plugs into the OBD 2 port then you have lost all of the factory presets and the only place to get them back is the dealership.

At one time they put a warning the owners manual in the battery section, but I think they quit doing it to make you have to see the dealer to get it running again if the battery power was lost. I forgot to mention make sure the security system has been shut down as they are set to go into full shut down in the event of a power loss. Just too much electronic equipment any more, and with computers linking with computers in today's vehicles you can get lost rather quickly.

I'm never buying a caddy after reading this, what a pain

Then you better give up on buying anything after 2005, after that date, most vehicles need the saver tool plugged in before the battery is disconnected or replaced.
