The 1996 General Motors/Deville has multiple ground terminals and frame connections. These include multiple grounds in the engine bay as well as under-the-car.
The speed sensor for a 1990 Cadillac Deville is located on the side of the transmission. Look for a 2 wire plug with 18 gauge wire.
I have a 98 Cadillac deville and it was not turning over. All the lights in the dash came on and it read, theft system problems car may not restart. And it didn't, I checked the ground wire from the battery and it started and has been every since. Hope this works for you as well.
Red and black wires are +12- volt, jumper the gray wire to ground to test.
Check your battery connections, engine ground wire, and starter connections.
check ground wire on front of engine behind starter.
The Chassis is the ground.
Jump the starter solenoid Take jumper wire from Battery + to trigger wire to starter (mounted on top of starter)
# Disconnect negative battery cable (8mm) # Follow first wire and disconnect at alternator bracket (15mm) # Follow second wire and disconnect at radiator support (13mm) # Installation is reverse of removal
The wiring colors for a 1997 Cadillac Deville radio with an amplifier are easy to identify. The radio battery constant 12v+ wire is orange, the radio accessory switched 12v+ wire is yellow, the radio ground wire is black, the radio illumination wire is gray, the dimmer wire is brown, and the antenna trigger wire is pink. For the front speakers, the left front speaker wire (+) is tan, the left front speaker wire (-) is gray, the right front speaker wire (+) is light green, and the right front speaker wire (-) is dark green. For the rear speakers, the left rear speaker wire (+) is brown, the left rear speaker wire (-) is yellow, the right rear speaker wire (+) is dark blue, and the right rear speaker wire (-) is light blue.
The one you are looking for most of the time is directly in front of the engine. It goes from alternator to the body via a 6 inch or so wire, that connects to body in front of and near the fuse box. This is the one that usually goes bad, due mainly to vibrations or a bad motor mount(s). Fix the mounts if you change this ground wire or it will break again.
Its the black wire that comes up directly behind the radio.
You need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.
You would have to pop the hood of the car. If the handle is broken to the hood, you must locate the piece of the wire that it was connected to and pull on it with a pair of pliers.
replace the ground wire cause its probably corroded
There was a recall for this problem on the Deville the harness from the evap canister needs to be moved. Tie it away from the cruise control harness using a plastic wire tie. hope this helps
Flickering lights, on a Cadillac STS, is usually a sign of a loose wire. When all of the lights flicker, it is an indication of a loose battery ground cable.
My 1999 Dodge van wouldn't start;ended up being the ground wire going to the fuel pump.We spliced into the ground wire where it enters the fuel pump(on top of the gas tank)and ran it to the nearest place on the body,and it works fine,still dont know where it came "ungrounded".
The 1996 Toyota Camry ignition harness has three wires. The red wire is the hot wire. The black wire is the ground wire. The white wire is the auxiliary wire.
remove positive wire from battery.remove the radiator fan, remove the alternator bolts and wiring. remove the small panel under the radiator and - tadaaah!
There is no ground wire. The casing of the starter itself is considered the ground. Ex. If you take a battery and use jumper cables to touch the positive lead to the wire terminal on the starter, and then touch the negative terminal to the metal casing it will spin the motor.

It means a wire in the ground.
Light grey, it would be the wire that is the same on all 4 injectors, "common" or "ground"
A wire coat hanger works well on older cars in which the locking button is mounted on the inner door frame. Slide the wire in at the window top, hook the unlock button and pull up.
On a 1996 Cadillac Deville the starter relay or starter enable relay is located under the hood on the drivers side. Remove the black plastic cover that encloses the fuses and relay center. There are several relays in there. You are looking for the relay that has a Red 10 gage wire, a Yellow 10 gage wire, a 16 gage Yellow with Black stripe, a 10 gage Purple wire. Locate this relay unplug wire and plug it into your new relay. I have been told that the relay is a dealer item. The parts stores say that it is a square gray, four prong relay but, this is not true, wrong part. If you have a volt meater test your wires, the red 10 gage wire should have 12 volts with the key on. The 10 gage Yellow wire should have 12 volts in the crank position. The 16 gage wire yellow with black is a ground in the crank position. The 10 gage purple goes to the starter if you use a jumper wire and conect the red to the purple the starter should crank. Hope this will help good luck !
