Those diesel Cadillac's were and are a nightmare. How long has it been NOT running?

Best Answer Mark helpful

21 years and we're trying to see why it won't crank


Might be related to the glow plugs. Time to have it towed to the nearest garage.

The glow plugs have carbon build up on it we put power to it with jumper cables and the carbon build up burnt off we test it with a test light on the relay switch comes on it comes on but the glow plug won't heat up
