Recheck the charge on the battery,make sure it's fully charged.Check all connections at the battery and at the starter.Possibly a bad starter.If the starter is ruled out,then look at the teeth on the flexplate/flywheel.I would remove the starter and test it.

    Hmm,could be a bad starter relay.Locate the clicking,that's the relay.If it looks discolored or burnt,replace it.If it's not the relay,could be a bad ignition switch.The instrument and gauge lights kind of throws a wrench in the mix.Check all fuses.Could also be a fusible link burned through.They are hard to find without an electrical diagram,and then still hard to find.

I have a 1992 Cadillac DeVille, was running fine, next day it won't start or turn over. lights work inside and out, the bells ding. Information panel, lower left, says "Security" Any ideas.


THERE IS A CHIP ON THE IGNITION KEY THAT GETS WORNED DOWN FROM WEAR & TEAR AND THIS SOMETIMES DOES NOT LET THE PROPER CONNECTION GO THROUGH TO THE COMPUTER TELLING IT TO START THE CAR.HAVE AN EXPERIENCED MECHANIC TO DISCONNECT THE CHIP CONNECTION OR YOU WILL END UP GOING TO THE DEALER AND PAY FOR A KEY ABOUT $100-$150 OR PAY FOR ANOTHER KEY OR THE JOB WHICH WILL PROBABLY COST APPROX:$70-$85.HOPE THIS HELPS.

I have a 92 deville and it wont start its not the battery or the starter or the altnator all the lights and power works just fine it just wont turn over I was told that it could be the security system how...


If it's like mine It's your security system, try unlocking the doors from your keyfob, then start it. It is a security feature to stop people from breaking a window, breaking lock then stealing your car. it will either wait 20 minutes, or you must unlock a door from the keyfob or by using a key in the outside lock, and not by the inside lock button.

My 1990 Cadillac Deville wont start or engage starter


Sounds like you blew fuse. Fix fuse and borrow a car starting switch they use at car repair shops. As long as you can turn tumbler to on ,you can start using the starting switch from repair shop..There should be a way to run a start button to start car and your off/on key should be OK

92 cadillac deville 4.9L starting problems


There should be a wire that runs from the ignition to the solenoid, check that the wire has power when you turn the ignition key, if it has power the solenoid may need replacing.
Check to see if you have power getting to the distributor and the spark plugs, if you have spark it is possibly in the fuel system
