    My 00 Seville stalls every now then while driving or idling.

    At times the engine had trouble cranking when starting. Then when it started the rpm was very low until it stalled.
    The service engine would come for a couple day then go off. Then the car would run fine with no problems. I got so advice from a cadillac technician who said have the throttle body, hoses and indle control valve cleaned. So that I did the car ran like new but it would stall if it wasnt warmed up enough while driving or indling.Then the battery light would come on when it stalled ,but the battery is brand new. Can somebody please give some good advice.

    Re: My 00 Seville stalls every now then while driving or idling.

    Wrong forum. This has nothing to do with registration or member profile questions. Moved to Seville.

    Welcome Aboard !!!! - and please read the text at the top of a forum for what's supposed to be posted in that area.........

    use the sticky post just above this one to learn how to pull trouble codes from your car's built-in code reader/scanner. Write down and found codes and whether each is Current or History. Return to the sticky and open the link with "obd2" in the address - this takes you to a Master Index of all P,B,C, and U codes. Write down all the definitions for your codes and post it all here.

    My guess is that you'll find one or more CKP sensor (CranKshaft Position sensor) codes.

    Study the sticky posts above - and study the Cadillac Technical Archive way up ^^^ in the black bar.
