Question about 2001 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

2001 cadillac deville want start with the ignition key. I have no security faults, just want start sometimes. I have moved shifter from park to neutral and back to park. Sometimes turning the key 20+ times before the car finally starts. Dash lights go out when the key is turned and nothing happens. I have checked battery and ground connections to the body as well as added an additional ground cable from chassis to the engine. I can remove the cover from the start relay located in fuse panel under the hood and manually actuate the relay, the car starts.

I replaced my ignition in my 2001 Cadillac deville and got the key programed but it still wont start


Maybe not be a key problem , is the security light lit when trying to start the vehicle ? Why did you replace the ignition ? Ignition switch ? Who programmed the key ?
Moving the ignition switch to the CRANK position sends a 12 V signal to the PCM Ignition Crank Sense. The PCM verifies that the transmission is in the PARK or NEUTRAL position. The PCM then grounds the control circuit of the START relay. When the START relay is energized it allows voltage to the starter solenoid S terminal.

Can you disconnect the shifter at the transmission and move the shift arm ? Make sure the parking brake is set first.
You may have to disassemble the steering column to un-jam the key cylinder and shifter.

I have a 1997 Cadillac Deville. When I put the key in, it will not turn. I tried wiggling the steering wheel but it will not move. Is there something else I can try or could it need a new ignition?


Make sure the shifter is completely in park.
But yes it could possibly be the ignition lock cylinder, or the ignition module on the steering colum.

2001 Cadillac sedan deVille Frequently will not start on first try. Wait several minutes then starts. Sometimes starts after changing from Key fob 1 to key fob 2


I fought with this issue on my wife's car for almost a year, thinking, ignition, security, starter, changing fobs, etc. I finally caved and replaced the starter - that was it.

When this happens and you turn on the ignition, do the gauges come on,etc? This will help eliminate the ignition switch/circuits as a possible cause.

1995 Cadillac SlS Shift lever knob will not move, seems frozen.


Put your parking brake on. Remove console panel. Put foot on brake. Turn ignition key to on position (Do NOT start vehicle!). Locate park lock cable (Parallel to drivers right knee). Press down on that cable with left hand while attempting to move shifter with right hand. Replace that cable if shifter moves out of park.

Cant get my key out of the ignition of my 95 Deville


Keys and Locks when worn will do this as will duplicate keys made not so perfectly. While keeping mild pressure on the key in the direction of removal, jiggle the steering wheel back and forth vigorisly. If you cannot get the shifter into park in oreder to remove the key, same deal, jiggle rapidly. Then see a lock smith

Good Luck!
