: Service Electrical System

What does this mean? I have a 2001 DeVille DTS. The car will not start. It worked yesterday morning, but it did not work last night or this morning. I tried to give it a jump, but that did not work. The service engine light is on. It has been coming on and going off. The message showed before, but it went off when I put power steering fluid in.

The place to start on this one is to pull the battery and have it load tested, then do a really good job cleaning the battery cable connectors, especially the ground cable where it bolts to the body and the positive cable where it bolts to the engine compartment fuse box. (If that's the original battery, you're overdue......)

The car will be OK without the battery for the hour or so this cleaning takes.

You live in Wingit on the Honga River ?? That's where my boat is from....it's a '69 Bloodsworth 37'. I'll be down when Lakes & Straits VFD has an oyster roast.
