Having problems with your 1983 Cadillac DeVille ?

Car will not stay running, air wont turn off as well

\015 Yesterday my 83 deville ran fine, I parked it and when I went to leave the car would not stay running. The car sputtered and would not idle, despite pressing the gas pedal down the car would not accelerate. Also for some reason the inside climate control panel which is usually lit with a yellow light was not on and the air would not turn off despite pressing the button. Would only turn off if the car itself was turned off. The last time I had issues with the car not wanting to stay running and accelerating I had run out of gas and blown the fuel pump relay, or at least that was the name of the part that the mechanic gave that had been faulty. However, the car has a full tank of gas and had run just fine in the morning. We replaced the positive battery terminal as it was very badly corroded and also had to replace the connector for the alternator as it had been jimmy rigged by a previous owner with what appeared to be a resistor. The connector was badly melted and when I had lifted the hood to see what was the deal it was not attached hence why it was unwrapped and eventually removed.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 19-03-2018
