2000 Cadillac Deville • 176,336 miles

I still have power to interior lights I checked fuses none blown but I dnt know how to check relays. I took out ridio day before drove it that day nothing wrong. I did leave loose wires after taking ridio out. Covered them after that happened

Check the battery. It may be to low to keep things going.

Start there

15 volts? Too much. Is this running at the battery or engine off?

If it was my altnator would that cause my dash not to come on and not let me roll my windows up only thing in my car that works r my visor lights and door lights other then that I have ni power to anything I'm going to check barttery again. Tomorrow. If it was alternator what would b the signs of that

Battery must be checked first. Then with engine running, you should have 14 to 14.5 volts at the battery.

You can't read a battery while the charger is attached to it.

Nobody knows that. Everything starts with a battery test and then test the charging system.

Check the voltage at the starter seloniod and check for start signal at the smaller wire on the s terminal when u hold the key in crank poss. When it stalls. We can start here. Gl
