Just want to know if the 1999 deville cadillac is fronmt or real wheel drive


All Cadillac Deville models are FWD (front wheel drive) after 1985. The only RWD models made were the 85-92 Brougham, 92-96 Fleetwood Brougham, the 97-02 Catera, the 2004+ STS and 2003+ CTS.

My alternator is good & my battery still gets drained


How old is the battery? I learned at Sears while working there in the battery department that the average life of car batteries is about 3 years. So, after that, batteries lose a significant amount of their performance CCA or cold cranking amps, and may have to be replaced on a pro rated basis after that period of time, on average.


I put a diehard platinum battery into my 1997 Cadillac Deville Limousine for about $189.99 plus tax and it has a 4 year replacement warranty due to bettery construction.

However, if you get Walmart's best Maxx battery, they have a 3 year replacement policy and they charge about $79.99. I put that into my 1990 Cadillac Deville.

Good luck on resolving the battery drain problem with a good alternator.

Car keeps needing to be jumped because of dead battery, I have replaced battery and it still needs to be jumped


Check for a drain by putting an inductive ammeter probe around the positive or negative wire on the battery.

If there is more than .2 Amps of draw when the car is not on, then you have too much of a drain caused by something in the car's electrical system.

Take the car to an auto electric shop to try to find the short or source of the drain.

92 cadillac deville that will not start.


It sounds like your batery is empty.
Or maybe your start rotor is a bit stuck.
if so give it a hit with a rubber hammer that can help loosen it.

Hello;

Have your mechanic adjust the interlock between the trans and the brake. In doing so you will also adjust the brake light switch which should cure your battery drain problem.
Thanks;
