Cadillac Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
Is the starter engaging to crank over the engine at all when this occurs or is the starter not engaging at all to crank over the engine?
Let me know,thanks Pete
Do you see a security light or theft light on or flashing near the gauges at all when this issue occurs?
I apologize for the delay as I was offline the last couple of days.
O.k.,this doesnt sound to be a theft/security fault here then.
This can be an intermittent fault with the starter relay acting up needing replaced or a fault with the starter itself.I have seen both of these intermittently act up causing this fault here.If you have a test light or multi meter I can try and walk you through the testing for these here just let me know.The signals need tested to determine which is at fault when it is acting up.If you do not have one of these tools to do this testing someone who does have these tools will need to test these here.If you would like info on how to test this just let me know but this does sound like the starter or starter relay as the cause.

In some cases if you dont have the necessary tools to do the testing it can require someone that has these tools or a shop or dealer to do this testing.I would have these tested though to locate which is the cause then it can be repaired from there.
