Check your battery cables and the bolts in the ends of the cables. they both need to be free of corrosion. There are several ways to clean them, you can buy a cleaner at a auto parts store. You can use coke to clean them. You can mix baking soda with water to clean. Also you can replace the bolts in the cables, the are also available at a parts store. Also keep in mind that the green corrosion can grow in the cables, if bad enough the cable(s) may have to be replaced. Last when connecting the cables the bolts have to be TIGHT.

1985 cadillac eldorado wont start battery good all lights and power works


Check the wire harness a foot or two from the
battery, for corroded fusible links

May have to open up some harness a little

Make sure the starter hasn't failed

Try to put battery power directly to the starter solenoid,
to see if it turns over,be careful under there, with the key
on, if it starts

Change starter wire on 92 eldorado


A starter motor problem won't cause the car to stop, You need to make sure that the earth leads from the battery to the body and to the motor are tight and that the surface they bolt to is clean, there could also be an issue with the electrical switch on the back of your ignition.

Why won't my 98 tahoe start after it was sitting for a year? i bought a new battery so that is not it.


Did you put stablizer in the gas before storing it? Does the fuel pump run for 2 seconds when the ign is turned ? Have you checked the air cleaner for debris? Do you have spark? You must have air/fuel/spark to start.
