Re: Car doesn't start. Help!
If i was you i would buy some 4 or so gauge wire, and run it from the ground on the starter (obvioulsy be sure its the ground) to a clean un painted part of the chasis (or branch it off into multiple spots) I know this wont cause problems on most cars electrical systems im used to, i would wait for an allante genius (thats your que Mr. Hussey) to confirm these cars are the same, as their electrical systems scare me a little.
Anyway that would take a little while in making up the wiring, soldering a large guage wire, etc. Get good wire it will cost more but it will be worth it, it may fix this up for you if its a weak ground.
Sorry if this post didnt make so much sense im in the middle of watching the George Mason vs FL game and will re-explain what i mean later if it doesnt.
Ok guys. The other cadillac dealer couldn't help. they said it was the starter, but it is not. Now, the original guys who I took the car too says it's between the ignition and the "neutral switch" (I think). does anyone have any info on that? Please help. I can buy the parts, but I want to research it more. Thanks...
