Asked by Jan 16, 2016 at 05:50 PM about the 2002 Cadillac DeVille Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I have a Cadillac DeVille and it just recently
broke down (it would turn over but would click
rapidly for about 30 seconds but would not start) i
took it to my brother in law (who is a mechanic) at
first, he thought it was the battery and had it
charging but nothing happened but found out my
starter was bad and also the crankshaft sensor
was bad. He proceeded to change those parts but
now the key won't turn over at all!!!! And when he
tries to run the codes, it pops up error and he is at
a loss. My car won't start and the key won't turn
over! Can somebody please give me an idea on
what's going on with my car

I changed the key ignition about half a year ago


Your key maybe worn do you have a spare key ? Also you can try and spray some WD40 with straw in and around ignition switch it may help.

I do not have a spare key because it is the master key and I'll try it thanks
