I would be prepared to pull the starter and have it bench tested for a dry joint on one of the windings of the armature. If the armature stops spinning and this winding is under the brush there will be nothing until the armature moves until the brush can make contact with the next winding and then it will spin. The test will show if the solenoid is faulty

SOURCE: how to change starter in my 1998 cadillac deville

Take off the plastic cover with the Cadillac emblem that sits on top of the engine. Take out the intake manifold to get to the starter engine. Put in the starter replacement and when reassembling the manifold use new gaskets. Put back the cover on top of the manifold. It's a rather simple job, but be sure to use new gaskets and do not over tighten. I would also suggest that you get the Haynes manual for this car (notice I said Haynes, the other type manuals that are not from the factory are ****!).

Good luck

SOURCE: Where are the cooling fan relays for a 1998

Are you sure that you don't mean the cooling fan control module? It should be located up front next to the cooling fan. It is square shaped and has a long square shaped plug going into it. 00114_cooling_fan_control.jpgReads the temperature of the coolant and passes the information to the engine control computer (ECC). The ECC receives analog information and signals the cooling fan switch to cycle the cooling fan on or off, as required.

SOURCE: 1998 Cadillac Deville low refrigerant a/c

I have a 1999 Cadillic Deville. The low Frefrigerant indicater come on after about 15 minutes of disconnecting the battery power. Each Time I reset the power the air conditioner comes back on for a while then goes out. I have taken it into the local auto repair place and they find no problem with the unit.
Could this be a intermittent connection to the computer. They have replaced both sencors and the problem persists. Where is the computer located on the car that handles this AC sensor message?

2004 Deville won't start


You'll either need to get it towed to a shop, or buy a used shop manual to get the testing procedures.
When you turn the key switch to start, there is a dash integral module, a starter relay, and the PCM in the circuit before power gets to the starter motor.
The anti-theft system is supposed to keep the engine from being cranked and started. So you get nothing when you turn the key if the security system is active. No click.

the solenoid is on the starter motor.it could be just bad contacts in the solenoid and the extra amp supply by boosting the car will make the solenoid work.make sure all the connections at the battery and the starter is good.if they are good then change the starter with the solenoid.the starter should be on the side of the motor by the rad where the motor bolts to the transmission.

94 cadillac won't start, even with a jump. Battery is new and inside lights do come on, but vehicle won't start. Any advice? Thanks


Check the starter/solenoid - sounds like either one or both need replacing. If you can get the starter off - you can take it to an Auto Zone or an O'Reilly's to get it tested. I'm not sure of any tests for the solenoid (sometimes it's part of the starter) - some cars also have a starter relay switch. If that's the problems - it's usually cheap & easy to replace.

Have you checked to see if there are any error codes with an OBDII reader? With those indications, there should be so errors generated. It will give us a place to start looking!

But if there isn't an error code - something is drawing maximum power, and it is probably the starter or starter solenoid.

OK, I have this intermittent problem on my 1997 Cadillac Deville. Sometimes, when the engine is hot and sometimes when cold, the starter will click, (solenoid), but the starter will not turn over the engine at all. I have to toggle the ignition switch to the start position and to the ignition position several times to make it work. But, this only occurs intermittently for me, and I have never really gotten stuck more then a few minutes.

The solution, of course, is to replace the starter to get rid of the intermittent problem.

Is the speedometer showing '0' or is it just not displaying any numbers at all?

Good luck on this repair.

Power, but can not start


Try to quickly engage and disengage the starter motor by rotating the key all the way forward and back to ignition on only, and back again several times a second until the starter motor engages.

Sounds like the starter motor solenoid is sticking, maybe.

This happens on my 1997 Cadillac Deville sometimes on hot summer days or even in the winter.

I thought it was the security system, at first, but it is more likely a starter motor going bad.

Where is the computer for a 1998 Cadillac Deville


start looking at the relays, computer should be the last thing you look at

No starting, no clicking, intermittant


I believe your vehicle uses a starter relay as opposed to a solenoid. The posting says 93 but the heading says 98 but you should be dealing with a starter relay. Also if you have an oil leak that can lead to starter failure on these vehicles. The starter relay is on the passenger side fenderwell near the shock tower.

2001 Cadillac DeVille


The most probable cause for this is a an intermittent problem with the Starter solenoid and/or starter.

When the car does not respond to turning the ignition key on can you hear a click from under the hood?

If you can that is the starter solenoid trying to turn on the starter motor. I would say the starter needs to be replaced.

If you cannot hear anything, then the solenoid ( which is just a relay) is probably bad.

I just replaced my startere on my F150, starter & solenoid come as a unit.... cost about $125.

Hopes this helps good luck Loringh
