Could be your alternator. If you can get it started again. Try to have the alternator checked out.

Hello. Get a jump or recharge the battery and then drive it to a garage and have the charging system checked. Also, make sure the connectors are free of corrosion. If in doubt, clean up the contacts with some emory cloth. J.

Turn key and nothing happens, replaced the starter, now it is only clicking from the new starter. I have a new battery instaled that will show 12 volts on my dash when connected to another battery jumping...


if you replaced the starter with a remand unit it could still be a bad starter(personal experience),but if your battery show 12v only when being jumped your battery is having issues,take the battery and have it checked if it was replaced before the starter it could have problems due to the starter drawing to much at once and not recovering,and also have the alternator checked out this will kill a brand new battery very quickly even with nothing on.

Battery location


Download a manual at this site:-
http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/CADILLAC/SEVILLE%202000-_E

"The battery is located under the rear seat cushion.
To access the battery, see “Removing the Rear Seat
Cushion” in the Index. You don’t need to access the
battery to jump start your vehicle. See “Jump Starting”
in the Index."

When i turn my car off i nead a jump to start my car back up batery is draned


How old is the battery, If it is 3-4 years or older, you may want to take it to your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts and they will stress test the battery at no charge.
If the battery is newer, let me know.

Car won't start, jump starts ok, battery showing charge, can't turn it over from ignition


If the car jump starts ok then I would suspect that the battery is old or will not take a charge or loose connection at the battery. Replace the battery with the recommended battery (don't get the cheapest replacement). Cadillac's have loads of electrical demands and/also when the car is not running.
