    Cadillac does not start and does not give the key!

    When I turn on the ignition light is on "Check Engine" and only this indicator. The display does not work, does not open the trunk button remote central locking does not work, the selector gearbox does not move. Old battery died, the new battery did not solve the problem. I threw the car in a nearby street and came home in a taxi. The closest GM dealer 500 miles away from me ... What's wrong with my Cadillac friends?

    There are a lot of threads on this problem. Most of the time its the battery. It may have enough juice for dash lights, radio etc... but not enough to crank the starter. Make sure your new battery is fully charge...14 v and connections are secure. these cars need more then 12 v to crank.

    Since you have replaced the battery recently. Double check ALL connections, at the battery and the other end of that cable. And anything else that was disturb while changing out the battery.

    No dush lights, no radio,no Interior light, no backlight mode automatic transmission, no power window... and the clock arrows that twist backwards ... I would like them to refund time on 3 days ago, when I refused to sell the car ...
    I came to work as usual, a few hours later tried to start the car, the engine made ​​a few turns and there was a click, I tried to start from another vehicle with a jumper, but it did not succeed ....

    Try checking your grounds. Check you fuse box ground to make sure its grounded well to the body of the car. Sometimes they look tight but really aren't.
