SOUNDS LIKE THE NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH HAS FAILED. IF I RECALL CORRECTLY THERE IS A SWITCH LOCATED ON THE TOP OF THE STEERING COLUMN THAT IS ACTUATED BY A ROD ON THE KEY SWITCH. IT HAS TWO BOLTS HOLDING IT IN PLACE. IT ALSO HAS TWO MULTI-WIRE PLUGS FEEDING IT. TO ACCESS THIS YOU NEED TO UNBOLT THE COLUMN ON THE BOTTOM OF THE DASHBOARD. IT IS NOT THE EASIEST TO REACH. HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA

Wiring for 88 cadi fan


Well I'm sure there are kits to wire up electric fans on cars that are not designed for one.
You would need a relay and something to turn the relay on. A coolant sensor won't do the trick, the sensor is what tells the computer the engine temp, and the computer decides when to ground the fan relay.
You would need a temp switch that is designed to close at say 220 degrees to ground or power the fan relay.
The fan motor would have ground and power wires.

Can you run 89 cadillac deville without air pump


I am not a Cady expert. In my experience, you can probably run an engine with out the air pump ... but why would you? The air pump reduces emmissions and improves performance. Removing the pump will also require reconfiguring the belt scheme.

Best solution is fix the pump.
