Car turns over.. wont ignite .. gages r reading zero!! Fuel pump or sensor??!

fuss ok? how about fuse link ?any light in cluster? when you turn ignition key to ''on'' position your dash lights should come on like engine , air bag , brake, etc and should turn off in few seconds if they dont come on, check the fuse panel for blown fusses. also check them for power with key on most of them should have power except a few that only power up when the engine cranks or runs. the fuss links are special pieces of cable that feed the susses they're designed to break when overheated and are on the positive battery cable in the starter side end . if the lights in the dash work as noted the security system may be active .

A freind has a 2008 cadillac dts and yesterday after starting it it ran for about 30 seconds and died. It will not restart and when cranking over after letting the key return to the run position the...

When the key is held in the start position for .4 seconds. The pcm/ecm has a start timer, it will crank until timer is timed out even though you release the key. That is normal. I don't know how long the timer runs?

As far as vehicle starting, check the basics. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes? I can only help with testing.

How do I turn off the passengers air bag as it is making noise when the ignition is turned off. It sounds like the bag is moving inside the dashboard. Thanks

The first thing you do is to disconnect the Battery's Negative Post. The Air Bag System has to wait two minutes for the capacitor to discharge after removing the negative cable end so you don't accidentally deploy the air bags. Then under the glove-box behind the parking brake, there's a module bolted to the "hump under there. This is the "brains" of the Air Bag System. Unplug it from the module, Now if you have a scanner, hook it up (don't hook the negative cable up as of yet), and then place the key in the ignition and turn it to the ON Position. Then with no one inside the vehicle, hook up the negative cable. If you have a code scanner you may have the Air Bag warning light stay on, but this is what will happen when it runs it's diagnostic procedure prior to dropping it into gear. To be a little bit more legal, I've seen people remove the instrument cluster and remove the bulb to the air bag warning light. It will not pass a vehicle inspection, but your only other alternative is to take it to the Dealership and have the passenger side air bag repaired. The aforementioned fix I provided you above is a "limp-in mode", or a safety fix so you can drive it to a place of repair without the passenger side air bag deploying causing you to have to replace the dash board where it splits upon release. Should you hook the negative cable back up and all is well, reach in above or behind the steering wheel and turn the key to the OFF position and then start the engine to make sure nothing deploys.

I do however recommending you take the vehicle in for the Technicians to run their DRB III, as Chrysler calls it, to diagnose the hissing sound to that air bag.
