Question about 1999 Cadillac Escalade

1 Answer

The theft light is on and won't go off. And so therefore, I can't crank my 2000 cadilac escalade. what do I need to do?

It ran out of gas and the theft light came on. Had the fuel pump checked and it was fine. The key ignition is not telling the fuel injectors to spray. What do I need to do. Could it be the electrical portion of my ignition? Please help me.

It may be an immobilizer issue.
You will need a diagnostic computer to pull up any fault codes.

SOURCE: 1999 Cadillac Deville- Won't start!

First, obviously, put gas back in the tank.

Check the fuel pump fuse, (20 amp yellow fuse in the lower left corner of the group). If that is not blown, turn the key on and pound hard on the bottom of the fuel tank. The fuel lubricates the fuel pump, once it runs dry, the pump can lock up. Once the pump is immersed in fuel again, a sharp jolt will unstick it and let it pump up to pressure again. If it locks up for too long, the pump will burn out and need replaced.

We found this out by accident, got mad and pounded on the bottom of the tank and the pump jumped to life.

SOURCE: Fuel pump

Not a simple problem, the fuel pump has most likely burned up. The pump uses the gas to keep it cool, and will continue to run until it has built up the correct pressure.

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Explorer ran out of gas put gas in and won't restart. replaced fuel pump and fuel filter still won't start. Cranks but won't start

Most Fords have a fuel reset button. When you ran out of gas you tripped the circuit. Most of the time the button will be on the passenger side by the kick panel. The exact location should be in your owners manual or your local library or auto parts store will have a copy of one for your specific vehicle.

2000 escalade won't start not getting fuel


GM used different anti theft systems if your key wasn't programed. You need to look up how to program your keys. There are also working fixes to disable this. I just got a 05 Buick without a programed key and has the wiring fix. I can't get the key to program for my car but I may have done the wrong programing.

2007 escalade ran fine to the gas station then wouldnt start


There is a possibility the fuel pump may need to be replaced. Occasionally a pump will fail when the cool fuel is introduced in a tank even though the vehicle ran to the station with no problem.

Light sensors


Sounds more like an intermittant connector; it may be concealed under a cover on the back of the mirror housing. If you have soleved the problem, please drop back and tell us briefly how it was resolved in case another has the same problem. These types of failures don't normally happen in isolation.
