Question about 2001 Cadillac DeVille
Car unreliable--back to dealer many times-still can't fix. Always starts 1st time in AM. Then might or might not restart throughout the day.Length of run or time appears to make no difference. No codes appear in memory. Autostart installed at purchase in 2001. Problem started last year. Dealer kept blaming autostart--had it removed and car is still a problem. Turn key, the dash lights but car does not start and there is no sound. For every time you turn the key to attempt start have to wait about an hour and can then sometimes start. Asked them to disconnect security module and they say they can't. Doesn't matter which key--still happens. Will NEVER own another Cady.
Could be the Crankshaft positioning sensor. Had the same problem with my 2001 DTS. Cost to replace: About $200 from a non-dealer repair shop.
