Check connections to the battery to make sure they are tight and clean at the contact points.

A fresh battery should start a car if the starter is good.

If you have an ammeter, hook it up to see how much amperage is being drawn when attempting to crank the engine.

If it's above 100 amps or even above 75 amps and does not turn, you have a bad starter.

Sometimes tapping the outside of the starter from below with a ball peen hammer while cranking the engine (need a helper) can start the car if the starter has a bad spot on it.

The alternator comes in to play if the battery is discharged and isn't getting charged by the alternator. The alternator is probably not the problem if you have a new battery and can't turn over the car, at least for that part of the diagnosis.

So, I wouldn't worry about the alternator until the starter and battery are eliminated as being the problem.

What could be the cause that keeps 95 Cadillac from starting and fuel instrument to read empty and there is gas in tank? When I removed starter and had it tested it was fine. Battery and alternator fi


Sounds to me like there is a bad ground to the fuel tank sending unit. This will not only keep the sending unit from showing how much fuel you have it will also keep your eletric fuel pump from working.

Something is draining my battery on my 1998 Cadillac DeVille


I suspect parasitic draw. All vehicles draw some power from the batteries when the car is shut off. Certain accessories such as clocks, radios remote door openers and alarms always need power. The normal power used is called parasitic draw.

It is always a very low draw so it doesn't run the battery down. If you install accessories like shortwave radios or plug things like inverters and portable refrigerators into the accessory socket and operate them too long without the engine running you can drain your batteries to the point where the engine won't start. If there is an electrical short in the vehicle or a malfunctioning accessory it could be drawing much more than its normal load causing a drain on the batteries. If you leave your door open and the inside lights stay on all night you could drain the battery down till the car won't start.

Here's also a good resource for your car specifically on narrowing down the cause of the drain.

1990 Cadillac Seville won't start.


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

My engine won"t turn over on my 97 cadillac


It could be the starter. It could be a bad battery cable connection. Have you tried jump starting the engine. If it starts, then most likely it's to do with the battery or charging system.

The problem could be either one. To find out jump start the engine, with engine still running disconnect the positive battery cable. If the engine dies the alternator is bad. If the engine continues to run the alternator is working.
