Question about 2000 Cadillac DeVille
Some times when i try to start car,nothing happens exept the dash lights
go on and the door locks will close and open after turning the key a couple
of times it will start up ,it dont happen much but when it does it takes a
couple times to get it started the car runs perfect no trouble there i
changed battery and used spare key no difference
The most probable cause for this is a an intermittent problem with the Starter solenoid and/or starter.
When the car does not respond to turning the ignition key on can you hear a click from under the hood?
If you can that is the starter solenoid trying to turn on the starter motor. I would say the starter needs to be replaced.
If you cannot hear anything, then the solenoid ( which is just a relay) is probably bad.
I just replaced my startere on my F150, starter & solenoid come as a unit.... cost about $125.
Hopes this helps good luck Loringh
