Having problems with your 1996 Cadillac DeVille ?
96 CADI TURNING OVER BUT WILL NOT FIRE
\015 I HAVE A 96 CADILLAC DEVILLE (NORTHSTAR ENGINE) THAT WAS RUNNING GREAT NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH IT. I GOT IT STUCK IN THE ICE AND IT HAD TO SIT A COUPLE DAYS UNTILL IT THAWED OUT AND I WENT OUT FIRED IT RIGHT UP DROVE IT OUT OF THE HOLE IT WAS IN WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS IT SAT THERE AND IDLES FOR ABOUT 5 MIN. THEN DIED. NOW IT WONT START. I THOUGHT IT MIGHT HAVE RAN OUT OF FUEL SO I PUT 8 GALLONS IN IT STILL JUST TURNS OVER. THE BATTERY IS NOW DEAD NOT SURE IF IT IS SOMETHING RELATED OR JUST FROM CRANKING ON IT. IS THERE SOME TYPE OF FUEL PUMP RESET OR PRIMER I NEED TO HIT? DO YOU KNOW OF ANYTHING ELSE THAT COULD BE WRONG WITH IT? THANKS FOR YOUR HELP\015
Check by the passenger side footwall on the right there is a fuel cut off switch it might have gone off press it to reset.
Check for spark when it turns over, have some one listen to see if your fuel pump runs when you turn the key on, check to see if you have fuel pressure, check to see if you have compression
