I found this information at http://www.smogtips.com Contrary to public belief, the Check Engine light being illuminated anytime during the smog inspection is automatically a smog failure. Vehicle manufacturers have placed the Check Engine light inside the passenger compartment to inform the driver there has been or is an engine or drive train malfunction. Very often you may not notice an engine problem, but this is only because your engine's computer is operating under pre-programmed information rather then of real-time. In other words the problem still exists but your engine learns to live with it. To avoid spending hundreds down the road, the Check Engine light should be diagnosed as soon as possible by a reputable and certified auto repair station. Our recommendation is you have a certified smog repair shop conduct a full system diagnosis. Along with the "Check Engine" light being illuminated or not, there are stored computer codes in the engine contol computer which the smog station will be able to retrieve and use for diagnosing purposes. These codes more then often will direct the smog technian in finding the fault. For more information you may want to locate a reputable smog service center in your area by simply typing in your zip code in the Smog Shop Locator search section at www.smogtips.com

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.
