Question about 2004 Cadillac CTS
Everything came on fine except it wouldn't start, battery light didn't even come on only engine light did. It clicked couple of times when I turned key. Then I tried to jump start it and it went totally dead, no clicking no nothing, couldn't even lock the car with the remote. Battery is almost 5 years old?
I had a 2003 ctc that did the same thing, it wouldn't start or would make a clicking sound and about 1 mth after the problem started aND mechanics could not find a problem my car caught on fire and burned completely from something under the right side of the hood. i had just parked the car and got out, it happened really fast. the fire chief said the cause was unknown????
now i have a 2004 cts and i'm having the same problem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! has anyone else had this happen???? please be cautious if your cts is doing this, during the fire my doors locked and had to be pried into by fire chief.

My car just started to have this same exact problem. Worked fine, came back home from a trip and it won't start. Everything comes on but no fuel guage movement or click when try to start. I have 85,000 miles on the car. Seems to be a common trend. Anyone find or receive a fix from a dealership?

The battery needs replacement. Also , the starter could have frozen up on your car. take off the starter, then remove from the car. get some jumper cables and connect from a good battery. Connect the negative cable to the housing as ground. then carefully hit the hot wire bolt of the starter with the positive cable. If the starter is OK, the starter should spin freely and kick up. Be careful when doing this. Also , be sure you mark the wiring so the starter can be replaced exactly as it came off. if it does not turn or turns slow and sluggish, the starter is your problem. replace with a good starter.

on the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge.pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to get to the track

My 2003 CTS would not start on the first, second or third try after filling the gas tank. Finally after several months of this occuring every two weeks a check engine light came on. It was the evac purge valve. Tom
