Question about 1996 Cadillac DeVille
My cadillac deville was cranking but now it will not fire i replaced the coils but i can not get it to fire
Cadillac is fond of multiple relays / sensors - although first I would suspect the crank shaft sensor, next I would test the Mass Air Flow sensor and Idle Air Control motor, Getting it scanned would be recommended, as you could throw a lot of parts at it and not cure the problem. It could also be a corroded connector for one of the above mentioned sensors - or a sensor I didn't list!
Hope this helps and thanks for using Fixya!

There's a blower motor (fan) under the hood and up against the firewall near the center of the car that takes some work to remove. It has gone out in the last 2 of my 4 Cadillacs. Turns out if you're not real careful with the positioning of the spark plug wires they will brush up against it, and if one of them gets cracked or brittle it will "arc" and short out the blower motor. The a/c compressor should still come on (you'll hear a click when it engages) but you won't get any air blowing into the cabin, hot or cold.
The part was like $200 stock (year 2000 prices) and it took about an hour to remove it. My Caddy at that time had this damn strut bar going across the engine bay which we eventually removed to get to the blower motor.
