    Have you checked that you have a good ground at engine end of the cable (and body ground)?

    I parked my car and turned it off. was gone 30 minutes and came back to crank it up. car had been running fine before. car would not crank or turn over in that matter. Battery voltage is good. the engine had no oil in it and i had checked it a couple days prior and it was full. its weird cuz i didn't find any oil leaks before. now the car won't start but i can listen to the radio.

My 2002 cadiliac sts keep flashing diffrent warning lights as i drive


If you can duplicate the problem if the car is parked, I would want to know if the alternator is charging the battery when the battery light comes on and if there are any codes stored in the computer.
Battery voltage dropping below 12 can cause all sorts of electrical problems, and some of the warning lights are connected to each other.

1998 sts wont start unless u hit the gas then it runs rough ..u put it in drive it wont run over 2000 rpms then it dies


Is the gas tank above 1/2 tank now?

A worn / aged fuel pump will fail when it's hot and the fuel level is low (example: below 1/4)

Park your car in a cool area.

Start the car when it's cold outside,

I got a 2005 cadillac sts it star and run and when i shut off the engine i wait like 10 minutes and the battery drains and i cant star it anymore they test the battery and shows good even the alternator is...


You most likely have something drawing voltage from the battery. It is too hard to say where the problem could be. You need to take it to someone to do an electrical draw test.
