Question about 1994 Cadillac DeVille

2 Answers

Bought the car a few weeks ago. they said i would need a new battery. Put the new battery in it. For a couple weeks it started up fine then one day it the battery was dead. my charging system checks out fine. i boost it off and let run for awhile, turn it off and when i try to crank it, it clicks (not like the starter clicking) and the dash lights flicker with the clicking.

That could be just a bad wire going to the starter the big one for the starter it feeds the car with power clean the conection where you can reachit and then have the starter retested if not 13.5 volts change the alternator.

    The bad past if the starter is no good and needs to be replaced it is under the intake manifold and is quiet a job to get out.

My 2002 ford escort wont start all it does is make a clicking sound it ran fine the day before it stopped running but that was two weeks ago im not car smart and won't start please help


Is your car somewhere where you can sit in the car and see the headlight beams? Put the headlights on and turn the key. If the headlights go dim like a glow worm, your battery is flat.

That can be caused by a few things.
Something electrical left on in the car. Charge it up, or get a jump.
Faulty battery. New one.
Worn out battery, they last 5 years. New one.

You say it worked 2 weeks ago? That makes me believe that your battery is flat and worn out. For a few quid, you can get a battery charger at Halfords, and if you are going to be leaving the vehicle for extended periods, you might like to invest in a battery maintainer. These connect to the battery and provide a small tickle charge to keep the battery topped up. They use little power.

If the headlights stay bright, then the solenoid or starter is at fault. You will need one or the other replaced.

Replace starter. Car has been running fine for last 2 weeks, however today car won't start. Battery ok. What's the likely problem?


Ronald,
When you replaced the starter, I assume you did disconnect the battery. Did you clean the posts before putting your battery cable back on? I replaced my battery a couple of months ago and did not clean them and my van ran fine for several days and then one day would not start. Cleaned the posts and cable ends and everything worked fine. Just a thought. Hope this helps!

A couple of weeks ago I went out to start my Kia Sedona 08, however, found it was dead. I connected up battery to another car and jump started first time (and ran it for 30mins). It then started fine for...


Sounds like a battery to me. The cold doesnt drain the battery it just makes it more difficult to produce enough energy to crank the car. If the battery is weak already, the cold just makes it worse. Replace it and move on!
