Hard start for 2002 Cadillac Deville Base 78,000 miles

Asked by Sep 11, 2014 at 02:37 PM about the Cadillac DeVille

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I hear a clinking sound when i first attempt to start. Not a click-click. I have to do this many
times and then, voila, it starts. Today, it took 30 or 40 clinks before it started. Now one
thing seems puzzling: when it is very high humidity/damp it starts easily. And today was a
very low humidity. This has been the story for a few months. But today was by far the
worst.  Has new battery. Checked terminals. All ok.

1 Answer
