Question about Cars & Trucks
1994 cadillac deville, won't start, just clicks and clicks and clicks, the engine is not seized up, I can turn it by hand, but for whatever reason the starter won't start it, I've had the starter checked I put a new battery in it and I've even tried to jump it off and with no improvement, but the security light flashes/the rest are solid.
The PATS security system would prevent the engine from cranking if the system does not "see" the right chip in your key. If the system is working correctly, the light should go off after you turn the key switch on.
You should have power on the small starter wire when the key switch is in the start position.

Try this procedure:
Check the battery like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.
If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
Check that the battery cable plus post, goes to the starter, Minus post to a good ground, like the engine.
If wiring is ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter.
Problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear or starting relay, Have someone bang on the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging the bendix gear..
Hope this helps.

Sounds like it could be the alternator. Call your local Auto Zone store and inquire with the cars symptoms. They give free advice and even let you use their tools for free.

try over riding the starter relay on the fender ,it has one there right?. dont go to a mechanic yet. the engine aint seized. if it doesnt have this relay then i would get the alternator tested. if you want to test it yourself it can be costly for the right equip. autozone usually tests for free. i dont know were you live so if theres not an autozone. let me know if you cant get it tested.

if the veh has been sitting and battery has been discharged expecially in freezing temps the battery will be ruined and will consume all amperage givin from jump veh set cables up and let charge for say 10 min with jump veh at high idle then retry starting if click is heard and no start check battery resistance connections at cables and retry

Pop the panel open.Check those Fuel pump Relay fuses under the hood by the front left tire.Replace the little 4 prong fuse.Mine started up after changed them.
