Hi!!
If you have a voltmeter, check the voltage of your car's battery, when voltage is 9 volts or below, he most of the electrical circuits work, but the starter won't, all you hear is a click that seems to come from the steering column when you turn the key to RUN.
Jump start the vehicle and take it to AutoZone or similar Autoparts store for a starter/charging system check. This is a FREE service they provide for their customers.
Good Luck!! Keep me posted!!

This sounds like it is going to be an easy fix. Under the dash, on the steering column, sits the actuall ignition switch. The tumbler, up by the steering wheel, shifts a solid linkage down to the switch to move the contacts. If you wish I can send you a pic and diagram of how the system operates so you know how to replace it(it does sound like it broke the switch). The switch is held on by 2 1/4" or 5/16" screws and the switch can be adjusted by sliding it up or down depending on what you need. The fix is easy and the parts are cheap. Email me at iambanshee74@yahoo.com and I will shoot you those diagrams immediately!!

Cruise control doesnt work,,,i there any fuse for it? this is for a cadillac deville 94


Cadillac's of this year have been known to have the wire(s) fromt he cruise control break in the steering colum. This is due to the tilt wheel moving up and down over the years. You should be able to either repair the broken wire or get a used unit (turn signal/cruise) and wiring harnes at a salvage yard. The wiring runs along the steering column to a connector on top of the column about half way down.
Check your fuses first. I believe the cruise and a couple of other accessories are on the same circuit. Is there anything else that doesn't work? (i.e. cigarette lighter, dome lights...) If you have the owner's manual that would help OR a trip to the public library in the auto section...Hope this helps.

Loss of steering


Obviously in both cases some part of the steering linkage broke off (steering shaft, pitman arm, idler arm, tie rod or tie rod end... etc... Could be a number of things, depending on the location of the broken part) In the second case (still had steering for 2 days), that was just a streak of luck and the broken part stayed in place just enough one way or another for a few more days.
