Customer Question
I was wondering if...

I was wondering if i have to install an Auto Detect harness in my De Ville after i install an after market stereo in the vehicle? will it start and run without one?

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

I havent installed the stereo yet! Someone told me Ineeded that harness for the Cadillac to run as an Antitheft deterent

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Cadillac?

2002 Deville DTS

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your DeVille yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes i am a DIY type of guy. I havent started

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Yes why does this vehicle sometimes start and not always. I looked at the fuse block under the seat after i bought it and noticed there is a wire connected to the ign 1 and a second wire tied into the harness that is adjacent to the fuse block?
