1999 Cadillac Deville won't start its just silence

I had the battery checked and it was 100%. I have changed the screws for the battery cables and still nothing. I was told it could be the cables them self. Car was just fine and one morning it didn't start. No grinding or clicking just silence. I thought the battery was dead but not I have no idea. Please help.

Have someone tap the starter while you hold the key over to the start position.

The PATS security system would prevent the engine from cranking if the system does not "see" the right chip in your key. If the system is working correctly, the light should go off after you turn the key switch on.
You should have power on the small starter wire when the key switch is in the start position.

Try cleaning the battery posts with a solution of salt and water. This tends to take away all of the acid that may have formed on the battery and/or the posts. Or because you seen sparks from the negative cable, you may need to replace the cables

Something is draining my battery on my 1998 Cadillac DeVille


I suspect parasitic draw. All vehicles draw some power from the batteries when the car is shut off. Certain accessories such as clocks, radios remote door openers and alarms always need power. The normal power used is called parasitic draw.

It is always a very low draw so it doesn't run the battery down. If you install accessories like shortwave radios or plug things like inverters and portable refrigerators into the accessory socket and operate them too long without the engine running you can drain your batteries to the point where the engine won't start. If there is an electrical short in the vehicle or a malfunctioning accessory it could be drawing much more than its normal load causing a drain on the batteries. If you leave your door open and the inside lights stay on all night you could drain the battery down till the car won't start.

Here's also a good resource for your car specifically on narrowing down the cause of the drain.

1999 Cadillac some times starts and other times it just cranks and won't start for several weeks


You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump, or a list of other things.

I need to know where it's located and how to take off and put on idle control switch


Disconnect the negative cable from the battery terminal...Locate the IAC valve on the side of the engine, near the intake...Remove the electric cable on the back of the IAC valve. Remove the screws that attach to the IAC valve and set them aside...
Pull the IAC out of the Cadillac DeVille and replace with new valve...Connect the IAC valve to the wire and reconnect the screws. Turn the screws so that they are completely tightened...Reconnect the negative cable to the battery and start engine to test valve.

Good luck, i hope this helps.

My 2003 cadillac deville makes 2-3 clicks then it starts, what could that be?


2 possible problems could be low charge on the battery (if it's the original battery it's definitely time for a new 1) a slick serpentine belt could also cause a low charge on the battery. A bad starter will require more and more energy to start the car until eventually it won't start the car at all.
