Sounds like a possible head gasket seepage problem.
I have a 1997 Cadillac Deville that had a water pump changed on it.
Had a miss after that after sitting overnight or after running it hot.
I had to put some Bar's Leaks Head Gasket Repair into the system through the top radiator hose.

Solved the issue, as , Cadillac recommends putting cooling system sealant into Cadillac engines that have been flushed.

Good luck to you on this problem.

Driving along lights dimmed, instrument panel died, loss of power then engine cut out & wouldn't start. Starts with a jump but when i turn key to heat glow plug, instrument panel goes mad


I assume there's a problem with alternator. Check the grounding to engine, check continuity of a positive wire between alternator and battery. the energizing voltage should be checked as well. Might be the bad connection between battery and vehicle body grounding. Diesel cars are sensitive even in a little loss of connection and rust in the connection points.

Turn key and just a loud click starter not turning but I noticed when key is in start position all power seems to go out dash lights radieo dome everything goes out until key is returned to run pos.


Everything is supposed to go off in the start position. You would have power to the engine computer and other components to start.
If the engine is not locked up, it could be the starter or a bad connection with one of the battery cables.

Engine will not start


Do you have power on the small wire at the starter with the key in the crank position? Something else you can do is pull the starter relay. One pin should have power all the time (power from the 50 amp fuse number 9). One pin should have power with the key in the crank position (power from fuse 10 via the ignition switch. The other two pins should be grounded. One goes to the starter solenoid and the other goes to the neutral safety switch. Let me know what you find and I'll see what I can do!

You have a problem in the fuel pump relay circuit for sure then. I'm betting the relay, but it could be that dropping resistor.
