hard starting 47 caddy in Cadillac & LaSalle Posted September 17, 2012 Thanks for the responses, and ideas. Sorry for not explaining things better. I will try to explain what it sounds like when it tries to start. When it is warm it seems like the battery has lost it's charge and barely turns over, like it will turn over maybe once or twice real slow and then nothing. Yes, I will try running the ground also to the starter, it's worth a shot.
