Question about 1999 Cadillac DeVille
Ran out of gas and battery died, charged battery and added gas. now the engine will turn over for 1-2 seconds and will not start. i cycled the switch many times to activate the fuel pump.
How strong is the battery might need to have it check for dead cells. It sounds like it might be a power problem, either the battery not holding a charge, or cables Hot or Negitive lose trace them to the starter. In the olds I would take the breather off and put a spout in the carburetor this step you ned to be safe step away from the veh before cranking. But if it only turns over 1 or 2 seconds then stops it got to be a break in the power to the starter. Hope this helps

I read somewhere that the fuel pump is lubricated by the Gasoline.It warned to never run out of gas with these Cadillacs.It may need a new fuel filter now.
The junk may have collected in your fuel filter?
Someone posted they had there fuel pump quit after running out of gas 3 weeks later. Try disconnecting your battery for 10 minutes first to see if it is actually the Anti-theft system.

SOURCE: Ran out of gas......
Sounds like fuel pump burned out when you ran out of gas. probably ran dry for about 20 sec till engine quit. Check for power to fuel pump in tank.Most likely fuel pump will need replacement . Hope this helps
