The service engine soon light indicates you have a problem with the engine management system.The only way to get it to stay off is to lacate and repair whatever is not working correctly. Requires very specialized equipment. Take it to your mechanic.

First thing you have to do is list all the codes, because some some might be stored for a long time. Pushing the OFF and WARM buttons together and holding will ghive you all the stored codes. Then press OFF and HI together to clear all codes. Hold and wait for bars or 0's. Now start your car and let it get up to proper operating temps. Take car for aride that aincludes all phases of driving including highway speeds. Observe SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT for coming on . Assuming it does , repeat steps previously provided, read codes stored and repair accordingly. If need be contact me with new codes and I will try to assist you.

You can check out what the trouble code is by pushing and holding the information button and the up arrow (right side of instrument cluster above the radio) until all the instrument clusters light. Press the information button (last) to enter test mode. I've had an error C1234, meaning Left rear wheel sensor fault. I found the problem to be a corroded connector under the chasis just under the rear left door about 2 feet in. I had to by-pass (replace 1 wire due to corrosion at the connector.

If the previous solution doesn't work, try this:

While the key is in "on" position and your security light is blinking, it is probably your "Passlock" security device acting up. Very common in these years for GM cars. To test if this is it, simply turn your key forward (to "on" position) until light stops blinking and eventually turns off (right around 10 minutes). Then, turn key back off, and then try to restart it. My Alero did this just a few months ago and I learned this trick as I was pricing out a new fuel pump. If this was your problem, I recommend taking it to a remote starter installer and have them by-pass the passlock system permanently. This should cost anywhere from $40-$100, but is much better than a new fuel pump and filter cost.
-note: I recommend not getting it by-passed until it happens a second time (which it may not), just don't forget the temporary fix!

1999 cadillac Seville starts up for a second and dies right away anyone have an opinion on what can be the problem


Sounds like it could be the immobilizer of the security system. With key on, does the security light go off after about 5 seconds? If it stays on, probably the security system.

Another possibility is a weak or failing fuel pump causing low fuel pressure.

Does it have a security system? If it does see if the security light is flashing. If it is you can reset most cars by turning the ignition to on and waiting for the security light to go off. Then it will start. This will happen again.

Just a wild guess.

Your car is equipped with the VATS security system. Cars with this system need a key with a "chip" in it to start the car. A regular key won't start the car because of the security system. A key from the dealership is needed to start any GM car with the VATS system.

1998 STS won't start


If none of the gauges are or "idiot" lights are working then I'd start looking for a voltage problem. Like an ignition switch. If the lights are coming on and the scurity light is on steady or flashing then you would have a security problem.
