  2. Seville and Eldorado Forum
    This spring when I got Calypso (yes I named my Eldorado after the paint color Dark Calypso Green) out of storage for the winter, she sounded like one of the cylinders was running dry for about the first 20 seconds every time I started her up. Recently, she let me down for the very first time. I...

    2002 cadillac deville. Starter recently went out and I replaced it. 1st time starting it-it started but with a loud grinding sound. Next day went back she fired up and didn't hear the sound.

  4. STS Forum - 2005-2012
    Had a 2005, then this factory built 06' for its lifetime. Battery requires replacing every 4yrs like clockwork and today was the day.

  5. Classic Cadillac Forum
    This spring I went to a buddies house to consult on his kitchen remodel and only moments after having parked he asked me to move to a different spot as I was blocking a driveway his renters had need of. My cadi wouldn’t start. My buddy is mechanically savvy as is his brother who was there...
  6. Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    I have a friend with an '08 Escalade which has a strange problem starting after sitting overnight, sometimes it'll crank fine for a couple seconds then all the sudden slow down before the engine finally catches. Sometimes it'll just take longer to start than usual. With both issues after running...
  7. Seville and Eldorado Forum
    This just happened recently but as I was stopped at a light, I could press the gas pedal to the floor and the car will not move or accelerate. Next, it would not change gears and the steering wheel was extremely hard to turn. I then pushed the car out of the intersection and tried to start the...
  8. 2004-2007 CTS-V General Discussion
    I’m new to the Cadillac and we just replaced the starter on my CRX but now when you turn the key over the starter continues to turn until you pay the gas. Is this normal or what can I do to fix it??
  9. Seville and Eldorado Forum
    The old starter was dragging bad, and upon removal the nose was broken. There were no other electrical issues, and I bench tested the starter before installing. Once I got everything back together, and went to connect the battery cable the starter immediately engaged, and ignition was in the off...
  10. SRX 2nd Generation Forum - 2010-2016
    I just purchased this Cadillac 2013 SRX less than 30 days ago. A starting problem developed last week and the battery was replaced under the 90-day warranty. As we speak, the car sits and will not remote-start although having the brand new battery installed by the dealership two days ago; I...
  11. RWD DeVille/Fleetwood, Brougham 19xx-1996
    I'm looking for an original starter from 1978/79 for a 1978 Coupe DeVille. I had multiple aftermarket starter - none of them really worked. Any idea where I could get one or maybe a forum member has an old starter sitting on the shelf?
