Pull The Plug: A Hard-Reset Guide For Cadillac CUE

Modern technology is amazing and helps us in many ways, though sometimes it’s the technology that needs our help. This page will show you how easy it is to perform a Cadillac CUE reset if some glitches arise. Don’t worry. It’s not an issue with the vehicle. It’s just par for the course that comes from evolving technology. Think about it. For those who were around when the TV was invented, the occasional whack to the side of the tube fixed image projection issues. Remember the advent of cell phones? No, not the flip phone. That big box you had to carry around with a corded phone that was the size of a briefcase (admit it, we all thought it was cool). But even the convenience of calls on the go required the occasional trip outside to reconnect the signal. Our Cadillac auto repair facility is always ready to help, but here are some things you can try on your own first!

The Cadillac CUE Reset: A Driver’s Guide

While the layman’s Cadillac CUE reset is also called a “hard reset,” we think you’ll agree that there’s nothing difficult about it. In just a few easy steps, you’ll use the Cadillac CUE screen in conjunction with regular vehicle entry procedures and VIOLA! You’re done. So without further ado, here are the steps with some other pretty useful details:

How do I reset my Cadillac CUE?

  1. Open up the faceplate for your CUE system (exposing the secret cubby).
  2. Leaving the faceplate up, shut off your vehicle and open the driver’s door.
  3. Keep the driver’s door open for 60 seconds.
  4. After 60 seconds is up, close the door.
  5. Start the vehicle and lower your Cadillac CUE screen.

Can Cadillac CUE be updated?

Yes! We will check for required updates whenever you come in for service, but your CUE system also allows for OTA (over the air) updates with your permission. Thanks to the 4G LTE system, your vehicle utilizes OnStar to monitor and download any Cadillac CUE update without your doing anything.

What is the CUE system in Cadillac?

Great question! CUE is an acronym for Cadillac User Experience. The primary objective is seamless user connectivity to features that are most useful to the driver, such as streaming content, navigation, vehicle controls, and more. Features can be accessed by voice or by touch.

How do I watch videos on my Cadillac CUE?

You can’t. As a safety feature, you can only play DVDs via the video icon when the car is parked and stationary. You can, however, play rear-seat entertainment (if equipped) while in motion.

How much does it cost to replace a Cadillac CUE?

If your vehicle is under its new-car warranty, your CUE system may be covered! Typical after-warranty replacement costs are $499, including parts and labor.

Is Cadillac CUE under warranty?

Your entire Cadillac vehicle is covered for four years or 50,000 miles from defects in materials or workmanship. If you have purchased a pre-owned Cadillac that is outside of this warranty period, you can purchase a third-party warranty from our finance department. Make sure to select a warranty that covers “advanced electronics” (or similar) to have coverage on those types of repairs.

So now that you are the master of the machine and can perform a Cadillac CUE reset, it’s time to celebrate. You have graduated to earn the badge of Cadillac CUE Reset Specialist, so don’t be surprised if your friends make you the go-to for their Cadillac CUE reset needs (once they’ve purchased a new Cadillac for sale in Lexington, of course)!
