Question about 1992 Cadillac DeVille
Just put a new starter in and went to turn it over but nothing happened I'm going to check the solenoid on the start and see if that's the problem. the starter has power but its still not trying to start if you could please help thanks.
When you say the starter has power, are you saying it has power on the large post and on the small post when the key switch is in the start position ? Can you jump the terminals and make it crank ?

This is how I fixed it, I took the plastic cover off the fuse box under the hood and found a "maxi fuse" was out and replaced it. I was suprised that a fuse could kill all electrical on the car while driving it. How scary is that?

There should be a wire that runs from the ignition to the solenoid, check that the wire has power when you turn the ignition key, if it has power the solenoid may need replacing.
Check to see if you have power getting to the distributor and the spark plugs, if you have spark it is possibly in the fuel system

Sounds like the battery is weak or the alternator isn't providing enough amps to keep the engine running and power the lights at the same time.

Testimonial: "thanks , it sounds logical. Should I replace the battery? The guy who owned it before me just replaced the alternator."
you need to verify the dome lights are turning off before you walk away,something is draining the battery.check you car out after driving it and make sure radio and any other things all shut off.
