It's the cps (crankshaft position sensor)
it cuts off the power to the fuel pump as a preventive mesure, it's a very common problems with the catera
i had the same problem with my 2000 model

98 Catera Cranks but wont start


Did car run out of fuel? If so yoou may need to get rid of air lock. There is a fuel rail on the top of engine with a valve on it like a bicycle tire. With key on, remove cover on valve and push it until fuel comes out. This may solve the problem. If not you may need to loosen the nuts at injectors to allow air to escape. Also caused by fuel line leak.

Where is the starter located in a 2001 Cadillac Deville V8


Underneath the intake manifold. Usually around a 2-4 hour job for beginners. Make sure you are careful when disconnecting fuel rail so you do not get fuel in your eyes or where it could start on fire!!

Changed motor now car will not start


the computers that tell the engine when to fire are sometimes different even with the same motors - replace the sensors from the old onto the new motor and i bet it will run -

also there are sensors other than just on the engine itself - also check all ground wires - and recheck all wires and make sure none are hanging without being connect - also check ur main fuse in the fuse box under the hood -
