Question about 1998 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

My 1998 cadillac Deville will not start - when I start it in the morning it starts fine. if I stop the car and try to restart it will not turn over at all! The radio works and the lights work but the car will not start - if I wait for 2 hours and try to restart it will restart! I changed the battery this weekend and everything was fine until today when the car would not start once I stoped it at my sons school! Also the Speedometer does not show anything on the dash its blank. what could be causing this?

OK, I have this intermittent problem on my 1997 Cadillac Deville. Sometimes, when the engine is hot and sometimes when cold, the starter will click, (solenoid), but the starter will not turn over the engine at all. I have to toggle the ignition switch to the start position and to the ignition position several times to make it work. But, this only occurs intermittently for me, and I have never really gotten stuck more then a few minutes.

The solution, of course, is to replace the starter to get rid of the intermittent problem.

Is the speedometer showing '0' or is it just not displaying any numbers at all?

Good luck on this repair.

Your transmission has failed & needs to come
out & be rebuilt or replaced

If you are getting a starting disabled message, it's an indication that your security system is rejecting your ignition key. Your car is equipped with the VATS security system which requires a key with a resistor attached (small chip). Over time the sensor inside the cylinder will not recognize the key. Usually a new key will fix the problem. In more serious cases, it's the cylinder itself that's bad and needs replacement.
