Question about 1999 Cadillac DeVille

199 Cadillac Deville - Electrical?

Every time it rains (or I take it through the car wash) - think something is shorting out. Car either dies (had battery replaced a couple of months ago), oil pressure/stop engine light comes on (have always had my oil changed every 2000 miles), truck automatically opens upon turning on ignition and/or gas take cover automatically pops open with a 'pop' noise. Had to have the car jumped after it went through the car wash.

Thoughts???

I had driven my 1987 Cadillac DeVille for about a year when it started to die. At first I thought it was the alternator because it wasn't getting any charge from the battery, but when I got it checked it...


The test that you performed indicates that the battery does have an internal short or a bad cell which will act like any other short circuit in the electrical system and it can cause a lot of unusual electrical problems, replacing that battery and installing the proper battery for the vehicle should solve the problem completely.

HOW TO SET TIMING ON 96 CADILLAC CONCOURS DEVILLE


There is no way to adjust the timing on your car....if you suspect or have verified that the timing is off, then either something is wrong with the computer, or something has gone wrong mechanically. Fixing a timing issue is not a job advise of the at home mechanic as the Northstar engine is very complex and requires many specialized tools for its repairs.

My car dies when I drive for a short time.


Check O2/mapp sensor. Also if you can elaborate on the behavior of the engine as it stalls, is there smoke, does it race then suddenly die out or does it barely run at a very slow unsteady idol until it floods out?

1996 cadillac deville lost instruments and died while driving


This is how I fixed it, I took the plastic cover off the fuse box under the hood and found a "maxi fuse" was out and replaced it. I was suprised that a fuse could kill all electrical on the car while driving it. How scary is that?
