Question about 2002 Cadillac Deville
Here's my story:
I have the same problem. I've taken my car to the cadillac dealer twice, and they say they can't find anything wrong with it. I had an amp hooked up to my car in 2005 at best buy. They hooked it up some kind of way that the only way it turns on, is when I roll my windows down. I never got it fixed. But I didn't start having the problem where my car cuts off until 3 months ago. After the last time I had my car checked out and it stopped on me again, I tried to start it with the original key and I didn't get any type of reaction. Then I tried with my spare key, and it started right up. So I was thinking it was my key that was faulty. But now it's still cutting off with the spare key, so I don't think that's the problem anymore. Reading your story, I'm staritng to wonder if it's the same problem. How long was after you had the alarm put in, before your car started cutting off?
TJ. I have been through probably every type of problem you can have with my security system on my 2002. From what it sounds like to me in your situation is this. What happens over time is if you or the previous owner has many keys on there key ring it pulls the ignition key downward and over time it wears out the tumblers in the ignition switch witch if not lined up correctly after the key has been entered into the switch the security system will automatically take over and it will not start. I had the auto start removed even thoe it was not the problem. Who ever wired it in should have been slapped. Another possibility is that the car is not reading the chip in the key properly, prompting the security system to kick in. I hope this helps. Its very frustrating to sit in your work parking lot after everyone else go's home. Good luck, let me know how it comes out.
