Question about Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

I have a 1964 Cadillac deville convt. with 428 cu in. ---on occasion the starter will not engage, and all I get is dash light on with no sound at all from the starter. I already changed battery, as I thought there was a short draining same. Should I look at the Neutral safety switch, the solenoid or the ignition switch itself??. I would suspect a flat spot on the flywheel BUT there is no sound of the bendix engaging at all. Thanks Norm

Can't get ignition starter switch to go on my 91 cadilac deville 870-688-8335


Do you see a light that says SECURITY on the dash somewhere? This can turn off your starter and disable your car. Read about it on this link with options on how to fix it yourself.

sound like fuel delivery problem if it starts and shuts off also you don't jump these cars from the battery there are special posts if you try jumping at battery could cause voltage surge on ecm and fry it that is about a 1500 dollar replacement part

Power, but can not start


Try to quickly engage and disengage the starter motor by rotating the key all the way forward and back to ignition on only, and back again several times a second until the starter motor engages.

Sounds like the starter motor solenoid is sticking, maybe.

This happens on my 1997 Cadillac Deville sometimes on hot summer days or even in the winter.

I thought it was the security system, at first, but it is more likely a starter motor going bad.

My 1996 cadillac sedan deville is not staring even with a jump


while you have it jumped to another car make sure all the lights work and dash board lights up and if they do and you hear no sound from the engine compartment the problem is most likely the starter if you hear something like the begining of this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKzO5JRL0F0 like it is trying to turn over then it might be a fuel system problem
