Having problems with your Cadillac DeVille ?
CAR GOES DEAD WITH NO ELECTRICITY AT ALL. LIKE THE BATTERY WERE DISCONNECTED. TAKE BATTERY CABLES OFF AND ON IT STARTS. THERE ARE ABOUT 23 OHMS BETWEEN THE NEGATIVE AND POSITIVE CABLES.IS THIS NORMAL?
Most likelly dirty battery terminal clean with hot water and try again
I'd like to know how you managed to get a resistance reading on a battery, without "smoking" you meter?? Check the voltage between the positive and negative, with the battery unhooked from the car. If it is around 11volts or higher your battery is still good. But any lower its time for a new one. But if you where able to get a resistance reading on the battery, its time for a new battery.
