Question about 2005 Cadillac Deville

1 Answer

My 2005 Cadillac Deville will not start. While driving the other day the battery light came on and the car stalled out. I turned my hazards on and called a tow, after a while my hazards went out along with most of the lights on the dash. The tow arrived, we jumped my car, but the car still didn't start, the tow guy told me it was most likely the alternator causing the battery to drain. I got back home, had the alternator replaced, battery checked and charged back to 100%, the car still will not start. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, definitely an electrical issue. Some ideas to check, consider and/or explore:

  • IGN switch - check for loose, corroded or heating connections. To test, under normal usage of the vehicle, should feel warm but not overly hot. If so, then possibly loose connection;
  • fuse/relay box - check for loose, corroded or burned terminals, holders, clips and connectors/pins. Use an electrical contact cleaner and spray. It may also be necessary to scrape to remove burnt marks/corrosion;
  • fusible link - the battery would have 2 wires connected to the + terminal. The big wire goes to the starter, the smaller of the two is the electrical systems main wire. This normally goes to the fuse/relay box. Check for frayed ends, loose connection, corroded terminals. In some instances instead of being at the battery's + terminal, it is connected to the end of the big cable down at the starter motor.
  • ALL connectors with big wires - these carry the main +12 either as always ON, ACC or IGN. If a connector has a wire bigger than the others, check them. It may be necessary to disconnect to enable you access to the inside pins/terminals. Scrape them clean.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: car will not start-battery is fine

Try this Put your key in turn it on dont start wait 10 mins remove key wait 10 seconds repeat this a total of 3 times. Your theft light should go out. As long as the light is on your fuel system is disabled. If that dont work try a different key do the same thing. If that dont work a dealer needs to probably replace and reprogram your ignition switch and keys

Recharge battery Cadillac Deville 2005


You do not need to remove the battery to charge the battery. When you connect the charger you MUST be careful to connect the charger's positive lead to the positive terminal to the battery and the negative lead to the negative lead to the battery before you turn on the battery charger. Connecting the charger leads the wrong way around most likely damage the vehicle's electronics.
When you finish charging the battery turn off the charger before you disconnect the charger leads. This will prevent arcing between the leads and the battery.

I039 is a road sensing suspension problem, I042 is battery voltage too high. I would first try to clear the codes and try to figure out why the voltage is too high - often a faulty regulator in the generator.
You also seem to have a battery drain problem - something besides the keep-alive circuit is drawing it down. First check all lights (including trunk and under hood) and the rear air compressor when the car is turned off.
Road sensing problem could because of the high voltage, but could also be one of the height sensors at each wheel is detached or broken, or the RSS module has given up the ghost.
