1. check the fuse(s), usually marked radio 2. check the connections to radio 3. try another radio or yours in another car to make sure the radio can work 4. check ALL fuses in the block, there may be a line going to it that is covered in a general fuse 5. check the ground, make sure its connected ETC.

ON A 1998 SEDAN DEVILLE IT 'S COMPACITY IS 7.5 QUARTS SO I WOULD SAY MAYBE BETWEEN 6 - 7 QUARTS.

1st you would need to know if the car is a 93 convertable or sports sedan. If the sports sedan, when you say radio...do you mean the face plate on the dash that you see..this is the ICM...the radio component or the ecm is in the dash...

The DeVille could have low transmission. Or the internal transmission bands or valves could have failed. The transmission will most likely need a rebuild.

If you are talking about a 2000-2005 Cadillac Deville DHS and DTS it would be just a trim level. DHS stands for Deville High Luxury Sedan and DTS stands for Deville Touring Sedan. The DHS had some extra luxury features the DTS did not, but the DTS was still a more pricey trim level with a higher output Northstar V8, 17 inch wheels, floor shifter, bucket seats and a firmer ride. All things the DHS trim or standard Deville trim did not have.

The diesel sedan deville that I owned had two batteries in it, so I assume the coupe deville would also. Most diesels now days, or at least V8 diesels, have two batteries to aid with starting and cold weather.

You have enough battery power to power the radio, but not enough to turn over your engine. CHeck battery.

I just had the dealer replace mine and it was $75 for the part and $100 for the labor, so it can't be too hard to get at. I thought it would cost more than $175.

You would have to rip out and discard all the electronics in the radio except the audio amplifier and the power sup-ply.

There are several possible causes for a radio which won't play. The simplest thing to check first would be the fuse. If you replace the fuze andรŠit still won't play, it could be the radio itself or a wiring issue.

On my 91 sedan deville it is at the bottom of the firewall on the passenger side. About where the passengers feet would be. Take the R. F. Tire to be able to see better and crawl under and just behind the disc rotor. BE Careful the line into and out of the filter are plastic and MAY be BRITTLE (More than likely)

If your radio plugs into the wall outlet for power, then there are points inside it that would shock you if you were to touch them.

No, the generator in a crank radio cannot produce enough power to charge a laptop.

Have you checked the fluid? Has it been run low on fluid in the past? Check for leaks in the fluid return lines, you could be sucking air into the system. Is the fluid milky or foamy? milky would be an indication of moisture and foamy would indicate the air leak.

Assuming you have not noticed and leaks or puddles near the car the next thing would be to watch for steam coming out of your tailpipe. If there is you probly have a bad head gasket.

User Avatar

sounds like you have overloaded and blown a fuse or relay check fuses . disconnect power source for radio recheck fuses.if dash lights come on, find a different point for power supply for radio. actually you should connect radio to accesories .lights dont take as much power as radio

User Avatar

The radio fuse would be under the steering column and the relay would be under the hood in the PDC (Power Distribution Center.)

User Avatar

Need more info really. More likely to be the other way around I would have thought. How is it wired, and from where? What are you trying to do, and what is the result. DId you put it in yourself? P

User Avatar

Check to see if the catalytic converter is plugged. Does the car sound like it has a restricted exhaust? Does it glow red (nighttime check). When was the last time you changed the fuel filter? Do you have spark & fuel when it dies?

User Avatar

The lights are using too much voltage and there is not enough power to run the radio at the same time.
