I think you made quite few postings in this one drewsdeville... Even though rockauto is getting on the wrong foot with me having the wrong parts in their boxes, may be out of their control, and do nothing about it to correct the problem- they do have an alternative to cardone you get what you pay for with no harness, or the Autoline reman that has the harness and more components including a new cap and rotor. Like I said, you get what you pay for.

    http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...s-over-14.html
    I agree, but most local parts houses only offer Cardone when it comes to remans. In most threads, including this one, people don't have the luxury of being able to wait for shipping from an online supplier where your choices are much more diverse. Hard to plan ignition repairs in advance on a car that you rely on daily, and unfortunately, not everyone has a Rockauto warehouse in their back yard.

    For the purpose of this thread, it wouldn't have mattered if it was Autozone or some other local supplier - it would have been the same reman distributor, and it wouldn't have come with a harness.

    That said, I'm not sure the problem is either the distributor nor the harness at this point...

    I have to agree on that. More details are needed...

    Nobody said it is or isn't fine. I questioned the distributor because others have bought the same reman distributor as you have and had to replace it. As mentioned by another poster, 2 of the codes you have point to a distributor. I don't know what the condition of your harness is in that you had to take out of the old distributor. Did you do the work, or did someone else change the distributor?

    Yes you can buy a new one. Not cheap, but I would not get one from a junk car. There are some things I would not buy used and that is one of them. You might find one for less, just have to do a search....

    Not likely. At this point, without further diagnosis, everything's a guess. Guessing can get quite expensive...

    You've got a list of shorted/open sensor codes alongside the dist interrupt code. I personally still think you have a power/ground problem somewhere.

    Have you tried clearing the codes? You need to do that, drive it and see what comes back.

    No ground inside the distributor. The coil has a ground, but that is outside of the distributor. All of the wires inside the distributor go to the PCM.
