Question about Cadillac DeVille
Car has power but wont turn over. replaced the starter and it still wont start. help.
Cadillac DeVille no year given
The problem may be caused by the starter relay, fuse, or fusible link. The fuse is easy enough to check.
You can check the fusible link. Sometimes they get corroded or melt and break the circuit.
The starter relay is most likely the problem. Since you did not give a model year.
I can only guest the location of the relay.
Look under the hood on the drivers side, right above the wheel well. Look for a black box. the relays are inside.
If not you can give your model year.

If you have power to the cars accessories but the car wont crank at all, recheck all cable connections,from top to bottom. sounds like a ground or a hot wire was not hooked up right. also, did you bench test the starter before installing it? if not, even tho its new, it may not work.. I have run into this before with new rebuilds not functioning. remove the starter and get it tested, (the parts store you got it from should do this for free) then if it tests ok, reinstall it making sure all connections are good, if you arent sure, ask.. they will give you step by step instructions the final step in the install is reconnecting the battery ground..

SOURCE: car wont start
as long as security theft system is on, car wont start.
don't you have the remote key to disable the theft system?
you can bypass security but you have to have wiring experience and splicing before you can proceed.
tnx 4 using fixya,

not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can
be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it
can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or
no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition
coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.
confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
