Run the fault codes and look for a problem in the canister purge valve/solenoid

Sorry if im misunderstanding this, but im guessing you meant "just wont turn over." If this is the case and you have a good alternator and battery, it sounds like the starter if it is infact trying to turn over. Brushes in the starter motor wear out and cause it to drag hard making it seem like you have a low battery. Hope this helps.

Aye, I would check or have the Ignition control module checked. Also the crankshaft position sensor imputs to the ICM. No crank signal being recieved means the control module wont send the spark out as the module has no idea where the piston position is. Surprised your local GM techs could fix this. I am a GM and ASE master certified tech who has spent the last 9 years with our local Cadillac dealership.

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.

There is a magnetic switch on the 'park' position. The car only starts or releases the key in 'park' is enabled. Maybe this switch is not working! Try to replace it!

What is wrong with my 2006 V6 Cadillac hesitates to start after refueling


Hesitates after refueling, have someone check the FPR, Fuel Pump and Filter.
If you have junk in the tank, it will circulate when you add fuel to the system.

Hope this helps

Car won't start after putting gas in it kia 2003


I have seen this problem several times. The EVAP Purge Solenoid in the engine compartment is sticking open. When you refuel your vehicle, the open solenoid is allowing fumes from the fuel tank to flood the intake manifold with fumes. This is what is keeping your engine from starting...too much fuel and very little air. Most of the time your check engine light will also be coming on while you are driving your vehicle and the code that sets will say "P0441 Evaporative Emission System Incorrect Purge Flow" or there will be some other manufacturer-specific code or code description that will read something like "Purge Detected During Non-Purge" or "Purge Control Valve Stuck Open". However, I have also seen this happen without setting any codes at all (also see below). In each case that I have encountered, replacing the purge valve fixed the problem.

Also make sure your engine is turned off and the ignition switch is in the OFF or LOCK position when refueling. I have also seen this caused when somebody turns the engine off, then turns the ignition back to the ON position so passengers can "listen to the stereo" during the refueling process. This can cause the computer to open the purge valve during refueling. When it happens this way, there will be no fault codes stored and no repairs need to be made to the vehicle.

2007 g5 will not start after refueling it does turn ouer


If it won't start but turns over after refueling, then the fuel pump may be bad.

Test this hypothesis by putting a little gas down the throttle body, a few tablespoons should suffice.

If it starts, then it's a bad fuel pump or circuit to the fuel pump.

If it doesn't start, then you're looking at an ignition system problem (spark problem).

Car wont turn on smells like gas


It should not smell like gas unless the engine is REALLY flooded. But todays computer controlled cars won't allow that. I think you have a fuel leak somewhere.

Wont' start


I would look at the possibility of a clogged fuel filter first. Some contaminants from the bottom of the fuel tank may have clogged it up when the tank was run empty. It has been known to happen. Hope this helped and best wishes.
