I have a 97 DeVille, that will not start on occasion.


Asked by Oct 01, 2014 at 10:46 AM about the 1997 Cadillac DeVille Base Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have had this car only about 5 months, It is in good shape, but on random occasions, when you start it first thing in the A.M., all it will do is click.  I have taken it to 2 different garages, both of them say there is nothing wrong.  Any suggestions.

that sounds like your anti theft system kicking in & out. Is your security light flashing when you try to start it?
