SOURCE: starter disabled due to theft system

the wire that goes to the ignition to the anti theft device is probably broken if you call a good locksmith they can go in through the steering column and fix it same thing happened to my 95 eldorado apparently cadillac designed the anti theft system to coincide with the ignition and is connected to the ignition with two wires that turn as the key is turned the wires twist and eventually they wear out

SOURCE: 1999 Cadillac Deville- Won't start!

First, obviously, put gas back in the tank.

Check the fuel pump fuse, (20 amp yellow fuse in the lower left corner of the group). If that is not blown, turn the key on and pound hard on the bottom of the fuel tank. The fuel lubricates the fuel pump, once it runs dry, the pump can lock up. Once the pump is immersed in fuel again, a sharp jolt will unstick it and let it pump up to pressure again. If it locks up for too long, the pump will burn out and need replaced.

We found this out by accident, got mad and pounded on the bottom of the tank and the pump jumped to life.

SOURCE: how do i change the water pump in a 93 cadillac el

I am going to assume you have the northstar engine.

First of all,you need the removal tool which looks like this.

http://www.etoolcart.com/gmnorthstarwaterpumpsocketast7880.aspx


You need to remove the air filter housing and ducting to gain easy access to the pump.

Remove the shield covering the pulley and belt. The belt is easily removed by levering the tensioner pulley.

The water pump is located at the lower radiator hose manifold where you will also find the thermostat.Remove the manifold cover and you will see the water pump.

Insert the removal tool over the pump making sure it is locked in position.You will need to use a breaker bar on the removal tool and turn the tool CLOCKWISE to release the pump (1/4 turn), or if you imagine the breaker bar being vertical, push towards the windscreen of your car,it takes quite a bit of force to unseat the pump hence the use of a breaker bar.

Installing the new pump does not require as much torque as removing the old one.Tighten the new pump to 73 ft.lbs. making sure it is seated properly before tightening.

Don't forget to clean out the water pump housing prior to installing the new pump and don't forget to include a new water pump gasket and housing cover gasket.

It is also a good idea to install a new thermostat while you're at it.

Hoe does the p c m affect theft system problem readout on 99 el dorado and will new battery help


A new battery will not correct a theft activation issue. If the system is activated the theft light will blink and the vehivle may start and stall or not start at all. You can try locking/unlocking doors with key fob to see if the system resets. If it doesn't reset, there is a procedure of turning the key to the on position and leaving it there for 15min. Turn key off and then try and start vehicle. This may reset the security system.

I just recently purchased a 1996 cadillac el dorado etc. it starts then shuts right off. i dont know if it is something wrong with the anti theft system. maybe the keys. i need to know how to check this. i...


Heres the deal. When you put a remote starter on this year Cadillac (and about 100 other GM models) you have to bypass the security system. On these vehicles, that chip in your key has to communicate with the ignition/lock cylinder and then the TDM (computer) to allow your starter to start and/or allow the injectors to continue working. So what people will do is "bypass" the key and lock cylinder to fake the TDM into believing it has the correct key chip inserted. This allows you to remotely start a vehicle with an antitheft. My guess is that your TDM has now failed. Since the remote starter (which is hooked directly to starter) works and the key doesnt AND we already know that the system has been altered.... I'd put money on the TDM (theft deterrant module). Check out this link. You'll find an answer to your problem for sure. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/
