Wheres the starter solenoid on 2002 cadillac deville dts. i turn the key and makes a cliking sound like if its a dead battery,, but i change the battery and still wont cranks unless jumped, or given a...


the solenoid is on the starter motor.it could be just bad contacts in the solenoid and the extra amp supply by boosting the car will make the solenoid work.make sure all the connections at the battery and the starter is good.if they are good then change the starter with the solenoid.the starter should be on the side of the motor by the rad where the motor bolts to the transmission.

Replaced battery for 2001 cadillac deville but not wont turn over ....i have power but just wont crank whats going on?


Electrical problems require tracing from where you have current to where you do not. For example, it could be dirty battery terminals, back chassis ground connection, missing engine ground strap, bad neutral safety switch, bad ignition switch, bad starter solenoid, bad starter field or armature brushes.
See if there is current at the starter solenoid, when you try to crank it, with a test light. They move further upstream if there is not.

Sometimes if the battery is really dead, even jumping it wont help it start up. It just sounds like a dead battery. Just try getting a new batter first then go from there.

Won't turn over. Acts like battery is dead but every thing works still. Motor is making a clicking noise when you try to start it


If the battery checks out good then have your starter tested. This can be donr by completing a bench test. Dont forget to rate this!!

How to change a starter in a 1990 cadillac sedan deville?


First, I would determine it is bad. I have a 1990 Cadillac Sedan Deville, and sometimes it doesn't turn over. But, if I toggle the switch a few times or up to 5 times, it starts to turn over and the car starts.

I have the same problem with a 1997 Cadillac Deville.

If you are set on changing it, here is a picture and instructions on how to test:
prev.gif next.gif Starter TESTING Voltage Drop Test Fig. 1: Schematic of a voltage drop test 91052g10.jpg
NOTE: The battery must be in good condition and fully charged prior to performing this test.
  1. Disable the ignition system by unplugging the coil pack. Verify that the vehicle will not start.
  2. Connect a voltmeter between the positive terminal of the battery and the starter B+ circuit.
  3. Turn the ignition key to the START position and note the voltage on the meter.
  4. If voltage reads 0.5 volts or more, there is high resistance in the starter cables or the cable ground, repair as necessary. If the voltage reading is ok proceed to the next step.
  5. Connect a voltmeter between the positive terminal of the battery and the starter M circuit.
  6. Turn the ignition key to the START position and note the voltage on the meter.
  7. If voltage reads 0.5 volts or more, there is high resistance in the starter. Repair or replace the starter as necessary. NOTE: Many automotive parts stores have starter bench testers available for use by customers. A starter bench test is the most definitive way to determine the condition of your starter.
---
Remember to disconnect the battery and remove the wires from the starter at the hex nut.

Then, remove the 3 or so bolts that hold the starter on using an extension and ratchet if necessary.

Hope this helps.

2001 cadillac Deville won't start--it was fine all afternoon. Lights come on, I hear a soft click-y sound---but nothing more. Could it be that the ''Starter'' maxibreaker needs replacement? Merle...


IT SOUNDS LIKE THE BATTERY NEEDS MORE JUICE TO TURN THE STARTER. HAVE IT CHARGED. AND THEN HAVE THE ALTERNATOR TESTED AT YOUR LOCAL AUTO PARTS PLACE FOR FREE. PERHAPS THE ALTERNATOR IS NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY.I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA.

Is it my starter?


My best suggestion to you is go to a Auto Zone or Kragen auto and have them run a free test on the battery, also check the battery cables for corrosion, it will look like white powder around the ends at the battery.
