Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a Cadillac deville 1998 v8 northstar. I had my alternator rebuilt and got a new battery. Vehicle started once but dash read battery not charging. Took vehicle to O'Riellys Battery tested bad. Had to get a jump to start vehicle. Replaced battery with warranty. Tried to start vehicle w new battery, vehicle wouldn't start. However dash lights and lights came on. It read across dash theft security problem, vehicle may not restart. What could this problem be?
When you replaced battery you activated the system. Need to read owner manual and see if it tells how to deactivate it. You may need to contact dealer to deactivate it.

Hi, I can't tell you exactly what is wrong because there is too much involved at this point, what with 2 shops working with it, but I can give you some advise on what else to check. On the alternators and the wiring that supports them a small volt charge is taken off one of the slip rings, where the brushes ride, for the purpose of turning out the light. As I remember, this is a yellow wire that runs back to the dash.
To the alternator, it would be one of the wires that plug into the side of the alternator case.

it depends on how old the alternator is because this happend to a car that came into the shop that i work at if the alternator is brand new than u need a new battery but if the battery and the laternator are brand new than u might need spark plugs or new wireing
