Still sounds like the battery is not charged, or is defective. I would swap in a known good battery. Also I would try taking both the battery cables off and re-attaching them. The multiple stacked battery cables can be tricky to get a proper connection.
I bought a 94 Deville for my daughter 3 days ago. 1 owner, car in great shape for it's age and got it at a bargain. The car had been driven very little in the past year - owner in bad health. Owner had put a new battery in the car 6 months ago and it was dead. I jumped the car and it cranked fine. Checked all fluid levels - fine. Drove the car around town. I would smell a faint "hot smell" at times but the car never overheated. I thought it might be from sitting so long. Going down the road yesterday and the car quits as I'm turning into McDonalds. Won't crank back. Starter makes 1 loud click and that's all. Checked battery and it is good. Any suggestions as to where to start? Someone has already told me that it's acting like the motor is seized up - but I have no idea.
I have a friend in his 80s with a 81 Eldorado Barritz his mechanic swapped out the computer loosing the memcal chips any chance you might know where I can help him find either the memcals or a salvage computer?
Good morning Mike. I've been searching in the forum about rich cold start. I have a 1993 Cadillac deville 4.9 v8. I've done maintenance. full tune up. Plugs, wires, cap and rotor. New EGR, and new PCV valve. Throttle body cleaned and air intakes (those were bad) checked the timing yesterday (at 24 degrees) don't know why but I'll bring it down. Cold start rough... too much fuel. Runs perfect after warm. Any suggestions about the rich cold start? Any info it would be much appreciated. thank you.
