Question about 1991 Cadillac DeVille
It will turn over but not start. it started to die on me when i would slow down or go up hill. then just stopped starting. was told it was my 02 senser?
No the o2 sensors can not stop the car from starting. I would start by spraying some starting fluid down throttle body see if it starts runs dies if this occurs you have a fuel delivery problem if still just cranks then you have a ignition problem (no Spark)

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.

well first off, check the glove box light blub, make sure it shuts off when you close the door, check it by pressing the switch with your finger to make sure it shuts off, also check under the hood for the light there if there is one, pull the bulb, and the same thing for any bulb in the trunk, then check again after a day to see if the battery dies, if it is dying while the vehicle is not running then it is the battery, if it is dying after it is running then it is the alt. you can check that also tho with a multimeter set to the DC volts setting, place the black end <the ground to any grounded area> and the red end <the hot lead to the back of the alt. > it should be reading higher then 12 volts, normally should be a higher reading then 12 volts... if you are getting a lower reading or just 12 volts then the alt. is bad and needs to be replaced...hope this helps you out...

Same that happened to me. There is a detailed write-up here: http://vatspasskey.com . The guy is great, this was the only way I was able to save my Park Avenue. I see it applies to your model too.
