Had the same problem, a service guy at the dealer soldered a fuse between the ignition wires. Never had a problem again. The problem is the keys, they have a resistor on the key, if the ignition doesnt detect the right resistance it will not unlock the security system. The fuse allows the system to always read resistance in the ignition system. Seriously I could not make something that silly up, but the fuse worked. 5 years not a problem

What would make my 2000 deville not to start?


Your security system may be causing a problem? Any applicable trouble codes? To check codes, yourself, at the least, you need an obd2 code reader.
Is there a security lamp on the dash that is staying on? There might be a relearn procedure you could try if it is a security system issue?

I have a 1998 cadillac deville that when I start it, It runs fine, but when I turn it off and try to restart it, It won't start, says starting dissabled, remove key, but if you let it set for awhile it...


If you are getting a starting disabled message, it's an indication that your security system is rejecting your ignition key. Your car is equipped with the VATS security system which requires a key with a resistor attached (small chip). Over time the sensor inside the cylinder will not recognize the key. Usually a new key will fix the problem. In more serious cases, it's the cylinder itself that's bad and needs replacement.

as long as security theft system is on, car wont start.

don't you have the remote key to disable the theft system?

you can bypass security but you have to have wiring experience and splicing before you can proceed.
