Cadillac Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is ***** ***** sounds like the battery is low, have you tried jump starting it yet?
How cold is it now, where the car is parked?
ok, if the battery is new, and its that warm, suspect a starter, does it sill turn over real slow?
ok, this can be caused by either a bad starter, a bad ground from th battery to the engine, or an internl engine problem, have you checked the ground at the engine block, where the neg battery cable attaches?
if the ground is good, then it can only be a bad starter, another possibility is the POS battery cable, is corroded inside and not allowing enough amps to turn the starter, this can be checked with an ohm meter, the resistance of the pos battery cable should be real close to zero, if it is, then suspect the starter, like I said, its going to be int he battery cables the connections, or the starter, or an internal problem in the engine, which is unlikely, unlees you did not have enough antifreeze in it, and the block froze and cracked,Tim
Do you still need help with this?
