SOURCE: unable to insert key into ignition switch

Try this pull the steering wheel as far to the left as possible and while it is in this position try to insert key. Sometimes the steering wheel lock will get in a bind and prevent the key from being inserted. Hope this helps!!!

First do you have a sterring wheel puller. Can't remove the steering wheel without one. Quite an involved job including snaking the electrical connector end through the steering column. I wouldn't recommend it to the novice

SOURCE: 88 cadillac deville, ac blower fan wont shut off,

Ralph,
Most common cause of this is the blower fan (proper name for the fan you refer to) continuing to run is a shorted out Electronic Climate Control Module. This solid state device replaces the older style fan speed resistor block (at about 4 times the price) This unit is found on the top of the HVAC box under the hood. (HVAC means heating, ventilation and air conditioning) The HVAC box is found on the passenger side of the firewall. Look behind the A/C's accumulator. It will have an electrical wiring plug on top of it. It will be fastened to the HVAC box with a few 7mm hex head screws. Very easy to change.
FYI, do yourself a favor and replace the blower fan motor at the same time. The Electronic Climate Control Module usually fails because the motor is drawing to many amps of current. This is because it's bushings are worn out or the brushes are worn out.
This is very common on Cadillacs and Buicks.
Charlie
PS Not sure why car won't start. Either you drained the battery or blew a fuse which controls starting the engine. Need more info regarding the "no start" condition.

1998 cadillac deville wont start cause starting disable remove key message shows up. What can i do to to fix it


First try another key if you have one.
If that doesn't work then remove the negative wire, wait a few minutes, reconnect and try.
If that doesn't work then you might have broken cable to the ignition switch.

Why won't the key fit into the ignition?


The pins in the ignition are dirty and stuck.  Try spraying a little graphite powder into the ignition hole and use your key to work it back and forth.  Otherwise, you might be looking at just replacing the ignition lock or replacing your key.

Cant get my key out of the ignition of my 95 Deville


Keys and Locks when worn will do this as will duplicate keys made not so perfectly. While keeping mild pressure on the key in the direction of removal, jiggle the steering wheel back and forth vigorisly. If you cannot get the shifter into park in oreder to remove the key, same deal, jiggle rapidly. Then see a lock smith

Good Luck!

1997 cadillac deville anti theft system comes on and i cant get my car started. Same exact problem just with a 1996 DeVille. I would imagine that this problem applies for most Cadillac's all around the...


I'm having the same problem, in research I have been told I need a new ignithion switch and or key. Ignition switch is not an easy thing to replace, The air bag must be disabled and that is a proccess discribed in another Solve, you should look further on this sight for that information. I'm just nursing mine alone for now.
