2005 cadillac cts wont start wont say anything.

Won't start how ? When you turn the key to the start position does the starter spin the engine ? Or not ? This would be a no crank - no start condition ! Or when you turn the key to start the starter spins over the engine but it doesn't start an run ? This is a crank - no start condition . Both have very different diagnostic testing procedures ! An what won't say anything ? Is there a car an padlock symbol lit on the instrument cluster ?

Problem with restarting after sitting for half hour.

ever get a tuneup this decade?
is it flooding,
the operators guide says, crank wide open throttle to clear floods
does that work? y/n
if NO check for lost SPARK when it DONT start.
if spark is good and not flooding does starter test fuel start engine.
for 3second, not at all , or runs. now.//??
this works on all cars. otto cycle.

Hi,if you have flooded the engine put your foot down on the throttle peddle to the floor then tern the key and it will let more air through wich will dry the plugs out and it should start,dont pump the peddle just keep it to the floor,if its flooded it will work,all the best.

Heat sensor on the Engine more than likely. If it gets stuck the car thinks it's still hot and won't let it re-start until it completely resets.

Driving car just shutoff want start again

Check to see if it is flooded, When you attempt to start the car put your foot on the accelerator and put it to the floor, keep it to the floor whilst trying to start the car yet dont pump the accelerator just keep it flat to the floor.

If it turns over the starter motor is fine,

Fuel Filter and pump is fine,

You got a spark so the electrics will be fine,

Just need to limit the problem down to whats happening under the head.

2003 Cadillac CTS won't start after disconnecting battery

Don't do that again! You will need to re-boot the on board computer system by entering a code. Call your nearest Cadillac dealer.
