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.

SOURCE: Charging Light On After Replacing Alternator/Battery1999Windstar

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.

Theft security problem


Usually it means the computer is not accepting the chip in your key.
It can be the key, the sensor in the lock cylinder, or something in the security module or computer.
You might try another key or lock and unlock the driver's door with the key.

98 caddy deville nothstar v8 how to replace heater coil have no heat and I'm loosing water somewhere


the heater core in a 1998 Cadillac is very tricky to replace.
start with getting a pressure test to determine where the exact location of the leak is, it may not be the heater core.
if you do decide to pull the dash apart to change the core make sure the battery is disconnected for at least an hour to allow the airbag system to discharge.

I have a 1998 Cadillac Deville. I replaced the battery, and alternator. Its still not charging properly. The service charging system light is on on the dash. Can you tell me what else could be wrong?


Sounds like a faulty voltage regulator to me.Start the car and take a multimeter and check voltage coming out of the alternator it should be 14-14.6 volts if its not within these specs take alternator back and get a new one.

Alternator not charging on a 1998 cadillac deville after i replaced it with a new one and still the same problem, it will start charging if i bring the rpm's up


Before you start changing everything Test. Check voltage at battery with key off it should read 11.7 to 11.9. Now start car voltage should be 13.5 roughly, rev engine to 2000rpm and voltage should climb another 1.5 average. Let off rpms and it should drop back to intial reading of around 13.5. If things don,t test right then its cables or altenator or ground from battery to altenator housing.
