Car hesitates to start take several try . I have changed 3 sensors that showed up on code but still is doing the same. What am I missing?

(1999 Cadillac DeVille)
When you turn on to start it it wil turn over continually sound simalur to when it is out of gas but after a few minutes it will turn on . It does it every time you shut it off and go to start it again. It is every time you turn it on. Also my center cluster is black , not working, no speedometer
What seems to make the problem better or worse? Nothing always the same
How long have you had this problem? Just got the car and it had the problem
Tags: problem starting, cluster not workingw, cadillac, deville

Hello,
When you scan for trouble codes, the codes do not tell you which item needs to be replaced. It would be fantastic, but they just don't have the capability of announcing their own faults.
Instead, the fault codes alert you to what sensor noted the issue, or how the engine control module recognized the fault.
What trouble codes do you have showing up now?
As for the speedometer, I believe your speedometer is completely digital, correct?
If you are not seeing anything on the screen, you may have a bad instrument cluster, or there may be an error in communication of the computer data lines which send information to the instrument cluster.
Start by sending me your stored and pending trouble codes that you get while scanning, then check all of your fuses.
I'll try to get you in the right direction.

Hello again Repair pal,
Thank you for responding. Ok now the only code that keeps popping up is 0322. Like i said before I have change 3 sensors. Listed below is everything that has been done thus far.
1. Replaced Knock sensor
2. Replaced Camshaft Position Sensor
3. Replaced 2 Crankshaft position sensors
4. Replaced Radiator with New
5. Check all connectors and cleaned Trigger wheel
With all that done . No change and code is still showing and check engine light remains on.
As far as the cluster, yes it is digital and it is blacked out.
I hope all this info helps you. I am hoping it will get us some kind of direction to fix the car
Thanks again, margarets
