Question about 1993 Cadillac Allante

Open Question

1993 Allante I had this car on a trickle charger which I disconnected. The battery seemed low but it did start and then there was a noise like a backfire which dislodged a small plate on the near valve cover and there was some smoke emitted from the rear of the engine and the region of the compact disc player which held a stuck disc that would not eject. I immediatly disconnected the battery. Now I am afraid and wonder if I have serious and permanent electrical damage Advice appreciated, lweiland@redwing.net

Make sure oil level is adequate.

Also, this could be an exhaust leak that is being closed as the manifold and/or block heats up.

93 Allante AC Compressor won't come on to recharge system


On most models you would need to jumper the low pressure switch while you are recharging the system. There should be a low pressure switch on the low side line and a high pressure switch on the high side or on the compressor.

I believe i have a weak battery on my car when i tried starting the car after it had sat a month it was dead. I boosted it and it started and run fine. I bought a trickle charger and put it on the battery....


The charger shouldn't have hurt the battery but corrosion is caused by fumes from the battery being charged or used. If you know the cable ends are clear, the battery probably has a dead cell and will need replaced. Most parts stores will do a load test on the battery for free.

Where is the battery on my 1993 Cadillac Allante ?


It is located right behind the passenger seat. Look on the side panel and you will see a key hole. Use your ignition key to open it and pull the carpeted panel out. There you will find the battery.

Truck wont start engine turning over, low fuel, sounds like it is starving for fuel?


Hello, If you have a battery charger, throw them on charge overnight. No more than a 3amp trickle charge. If you can charge one battery, and you can jump the truck by hooking the other battery to jumper cables, then you have identified the problem as low/dead batteries.

And yes, PSD's make a lot of noise on start up. A difference you will notice between the cumming and the psd engine at start-up is that the psd cranks longer. This is due to the fact that the fuel injectors on the psd are actuated by oil pressure.

Thanks

your car will always have something being powered but its a trickle amount[computer-entry control[keyless entry]-radio memory-etc if ur going to let it sit for a month with battery connected yes your battery will more than likely be dead when u disconnect it ur also clearing all codes and memory in computer and components auto stores sell a trickle charger/maintain charge charger for long term storage there used for any type battery boats ,cars,atvs ,planes,etc the charger maintains the charge in a battery it goes on and off when needed
