Question about 1998 Cadillac DeVille
Car starts hard after sitting just a few minutes. Hook a jumper box and starts right up. when you start it up the gas door is open and sometimes the trunk will open. Also the turn signal doesn't work.
That tells me that 1...you have a short in your ignition module. 2 your alt is not charging the battery. the module for the igniton and turn signal is under the cover of your steering column. with the vehicle running remove the positive cable. if the car dies it's the regualter in the altenator. if it keeps running that tells me that either your battery won't hold a chaqrge or there is a load on it during downtime. look at the connections under your dash and see if they are tight and also look for cracked or discolored connectors as well this will indicate where the short is. please rate this thanks...
