How about the starter? My 1997 Cadillac Deville has this annoying problem where I can only get it started sometimes by toggling the starter switch on and off rapidly for 3 to 5 times before it turns over. lol.

Other times, it starts fine.

The only solution, assuming your security system isn't playing games with you, is to replace the starter with a new one.

Good luck on this repair.
:)

It's more than likely the starter solenoid... it is located mounted on top of the starter motor...just replacing that instead of the whole starter will save you a quite a bit of money...seems to be the common cause for a starter to fail and most people spend the extra $30-$40 for a whole new starter. but if you're bringing it to a mechanic they will probably charge more in labor to make up the difference of replacing the whole thing...

Alternator 0%; battery not holding charge


Not sure I follow you. Nothing should be on at night with the key switch off.
If something is on or there is a short in the system, the battery will drain overnight.
And have you had the charging system checked on the truck ?
It should be charging 13.8 volts or more with the engine running.

Hoo.commy 01 yukon will not start after sitting for 12 hrs. i have replaced the battery and alternator and the proble is still there.


Alternators wont cause a starting problem. so it cranks? or not? cranks but wont run? the first thing to verify is fuel pressure. If its not 55-60 psi, it will not run. you may need a fuel pump.

Cannot get alarm to go off and car wont crank. 1997 Accord


It ended up being my alternator. No one could figure it out with stantard know-how, i had to take it to a Auto Parts Store for a load test on battery, they found the alternator was pulling battery down and causing alarm and security to enable start-up. Thanks for getting back in touch with me.
