It is most likely the fuel relay, which is located in the fuse box under the hood.If not itcould be a number of simple things : the car needs a tune up, the fuel pump, even check and make sure it is getting air. All of these are a good idea to check out!

Your Cadillac sedan deville will not start?

02 cadillac deville wont crank or start the entire dashboard illuminates and everything work when the switch is on seems like it wants to crank but doesnt. I had a problem for years with my 1991 Caddy and kept changing starters for a while. My problem was that I wasn't getting a good read on the security chip in the key. Next time it happens: turn it off, take the key out, wait at least three minutes and try again. Check your manual to see if that is still the procedure. By the way I decided to live with it. Every start is a roll of the dice.

How can you make a factory CD player out of one 2000 Cadillac deville work in another 2000 Cadillac deville when you turn it on it says anti theft and wont work?

You might have 2 problems. 1) The radios are VIN specific and so to get it unlocked you have to go to the dealer and have them program your VIN in the replacement radio, could be $10 to $75 depending on your dealer. 2) If you are trying to put a CD/Cass. in where there was just a plain cassette, it won't work anyway, the cassette player is internally amped, the CD/Cass. has an external amp, so if that is your situation, don't waste your money getting it unlocked.

What is the problem of car doesn't start but the belt is working?

By belt i assume you're talking about alternator belt. This has nothing to with initial starting or cranking the engine. Check for full battery charge first, and make sure engine is cranking at proper speed. If so, you may not be getting a spark or a fuel problem exist, such as fuel pump. Can also mean bad wires or crack in distributor cap (especially if it occurs on damp days).
