    Deville 94 4.9 V8 - no start

    Won't start. Could this be caused by a bad o2 sensor related to the code p013?
    The dash lights up and everything but when I turn the key to start the ignition no go.

    Or is it the starter?


    Just put in a new fuel pump and sender along with a few months back fuel injectors throttle body cleaning oil change new brake lines including spark plugs rotor cap and wire etc.

    Cadillac deville 94 4.9 v8 will not start

    Won't start. I went to start it this morning and low and behold it would not start. i almost got to work late found another ride. Could this be caused by a bad o2 sensor related to the code p013?
    The dash lights up and everything but when I turn the key to start the ignition no go.

    Does it crank?

    Faulty O2 sensors can not cause the engine not to start.

    Is it turning over fast or slow?

    It does not turn over it tries to but it never gets to that point. At first it did almost then the 3 or 4 times after no it never came close to turning over the other times.

    ----------

    It goes to crank but dies right out. It never cranks. I'll record a video with my phone tomorrow since I'm working a double today and working again the morning.

    ----------

    Coud it also be a clogged fuel filter?

    I would say battery or starter.
    Have the battery tested. It is possible it is too low to engage the starter, but still has enough juice to power all the accessories.

    What is P013?

    If it is not cranking (turning over), then your problem is electrical and in the starting circuit. Most likely a battery or cable problem.

    Just had to get a new battery for my car. I believe the HEAT got to mine as it was HOT here for a week. Wouldn't turn over even when fully charged but everything else worked. Connections were good.

    It makes a click, click, click, click sound when I go to start it.

    P013 has to do with a o2 sensor can't remember which one

    As for the double post I never meant to post twice I meant to change the title was all.

    Thanks everyone for the help.

    Have your battery charged and load tested. Replace if necessary.

    You've got a bad battery or connection somewhere. A bad started won't go click click click and no sensor will stop the car from turning over.
