Have you unhooked the battery since you put the freon in? If not, do it.

SOURCE: my 1996 cadillac eldorado says battery no charge

Most likely you need a new battery but do this first. Remove the battery ground connection and the positive connection. Clean them with soda water(coke is sticky but all sodas will work). Scrape or sand the inside of the cable connectors and the outside of the battery posts till they are shiny. A low battery light usually means it is not fully charged or taking a charge optimally but effective troubleshooting the battery and starting system starts with clean,secure connections and a fully charged battery. If your battery has electrolyte filling caps undo them and check the level. If they need topping off use distilled water only. Charge the battery with a car battery charger. It should read about 13.4 Volts under no load. Check and clean the battery negative cable connection to the block and the positive connection to the starter solenoid. Check for good connections to the charging output from the alternator. Inspect all wires for kinks, cracking, shorts, ect. A good once over will reveal probem wiring. Reinstall the battery and cables. Giv'er a crank and see if that is not stronger. Drive it for an hour or so and crank it again. Any noticable degradation in cranking power means you have a bad battery, alternator, diode pack if applicable, voltage reguator, or any combination of the three. Take your alternator and battery to your auto parts dealer. They will usually test them for free. Aslo, starters can wear after time but this is most likely not your problem based on the symptoms.

SOURCE: 95 cadillac eldorado engine stalls rough idle check engine light is on

I have a 95 eldorado that is starting hard and idling rough. Also noticed gas pedal fluctuating. I have been told it is the Fuel Pressure Regulator. Does that sound reasonable?

Driver window switch 99 cadillac eldorado stopped working ,how do I remove it to check?


Hello: Carefully take a 1/4 inch flat bladed 6in. screwdriver and gently go under the switch plate (you might put a shop rag on top of the door panel under the screw driver to keep from damaging the panel, push in and pry up at the same time and the switch plate should pop up in the front then pull straight up and it should come up.

Battery not charging info light on


Hello and welcome to FixYa!


If the battery light is on, I strongly suggest that you have the battery charged. It can be an indication of a weak battery or a faulty alternator. If the battery light still on after charging then the problem will surely be on the alternator itself. If that's the case the alternator should be replaced to resolve the problem.


If the battery won't hold charge even on a new alternator then the problem will be on the battery itself. It surely is in the end of it's service life and replacement will be necessary.


You may try to reset it to by removing the positive battery connector, letting it sit for at least 5mins. then reconnect it again. This will reset the system and can get the battery light off.


Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

99 eldorado. trunk and gas door pop open


There is corrosion at the positive battery cable and the terminal is probably  about to fall out of the battery. Clean battery terminals, replace bolts and spacer if applicable and recommend battery replacement

Battery issues


It would take a good mechanic about 15 min.- 1/2 hr., to test your charging & starting system for you. Could be a faulty battery, or wrong battery for your car, bad connection, system not charging, or some kind of a current draw is taking place while sitting like , lights on, etc.or even a worn starter. If you have your own ( DC volts ) multimeter or a friend has one, we could walk you through what to try. What size CCA does it say on top of the battery?

Draining Battery overnight


I had the same problem the day I bought the car. My batter was acting weird. Attempts to jump start it resulted in the hood popping open, a buzzing sound underneath the real seat, and my fuel door popping open!

After all of this It turns out the cable to the battery terminal was defective and it was draining the battery and causing these other issues. They changed the red cable and the issue went away.
