Question about Cadillac DeVille
There is ... called the start solenoid. Follow the big wire from the battery + (POS) to its first stop where you will find the wire fastened to a device. The wire will "continue" on the other side of the device and go to the starter. This device is a electrically operated switch called the solenoid. They do wear out.
Test with a volt meter attached to the starter side of the device. Have someone operate the switch inside and observe the voltage reading with the key in the start position. If the voltage is around 12 volts, there is a problem with the starter. If there is no voltage, there is a problem with the solenoid.
Thanks for your question.
