These cars had issues with the antitheft system. When the system faults, the starter will get turned off. Normally indicated by a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. This link explains the problem.

SOURCE: 92 cadillac deville that will not start.

It sounds like your batery is empty.
Or maybe your start rotor is a bit stuck.
if so give it a hit with a rubber hammer that can help loosen it.

SOURCE: my 2003 cadillac deville makes 2-3 clicks then it

2 possible problems could be low charge on the battery (if it's the original battery it's definitely time for a new 1) a slick serpentine belt could also cause a low charge on the battery. A bad starter will require more and more energy to start the car until eventually it won't start the car at all.

Hello: Check the battery cables for corrosion (clean if corroded) and make sure cables are tight use a 5/16 box end wrench, NOT PLIERS.

I have a 1998 Cadillac Catera. My car will not start at certain times and I can't understand why. I've taken it to a Cadillac dealership a number of times and they say there nothing wrong with the car...


A clicking noise means that you have a weak battery because if your dash light do not come on then you have a short which is drawing off of your batter power. And this is why sometimes it will not start. You are actually recharging the battery as your drive. Am I making this clear to you? The dash lights have to be doing this. To prove my point take out the fuse for your dash lights and see if it keeps doing it. If not then it has to be that and if so then it could be something else but I doubt it. I hope you can get this fixed cheap cause el;electrical problem can cost a lot of labor tracking down and thanks for using FixYa.

Won't start...99 cadillac deville...no juice to the starter


hi, can you hear a clicking noise when you turn the key to start as the starter gets its power direct from the battery so also check these wires are connected and not came loose.
If you can hear a clicking noise when you turn the key this means the starter motor needs replacing ok.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Sometimes won't turn over when i try it. 2003 cadillac cts


hi, when it dont turn over do you hear a clicking noise or is the engine turning over and just not starting.
If its the first and when you turn the key the starter motor dont turn the engine over allowing it to start you will usually hear a clicking noise and this is the selanoid inside the starter motor failing to make a connection.
If this is the case then all you need to do is get the starter motor replaced if you have any further comments or need further assistance then let me know ok

Will not turn over


Sorry to say, but you have a bad starter. One way to check is to have someone tap on the starter with a hammer while you try to start it, if the starter starts to turn, then it's your starter...or have someone removed it and then take it to a local auto parts store and have them check it....Chances are you have a bad starter.
