2001 cadillac Deville won't start--it was fine all afternoon. Lights come on, I hear a soft click-y sound---but nothing more. Could it be that the ''Starter'' maxibreaker needs replacement? Merle Gross, Chicago

IT SOUNDS LIKE THE BATTERY NEEDS MORE JUICE TO TURN THE STARTER. HAVE IT CHARGED. AND THEN HAVE THE ALTERNATOR TESTED AT YOUR LOCAL AUTO PARTS PLACE FOR FREE. PERHAPS THE ALTERNATOR IS NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY.I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA.

I have a 2001 Cadillac deville that will not start when I turn the key it clicks for a few seconds and nothing. The service anti thift soon came on, on the dash the day before the radio stopped working...


It's hard to say for sure since it sounds like it could be many things. If you turn the key and you hear a few clicks coming from the engine and then nothing, it could mean a very very weak battery. Your first step should be trying a different (fully charged) battery. Good luck.

I have a power window issue with the rear drivers side window. 2001 Cadillac Deville. The window does not move but I hear a click...The other windows work. Is there a fuse for each window?


  • That click is the window off tract. You need to pull the door panel off and have a look at the tract and regulator. Sounds off track to me. The fact that it is click tells me that the power feed is not the issue and the fuses are working fine or you would not hear any "clicking."

2001 Cadillac Deville problems starting


I have had the same problem and I have come to the conclusion it is the security system. After 3 minutes the car will start so there is nothing wrong with the battery or starter. I have had it to the dealer a few times and they cannot solve it. It may be the locks on the doors and they may not be resetting properly. I have learned to live with it.

Your security system inside your steering wheel is probably gone bad and needs to be replaced.This is a dealer job or a very experienced auto elactric shop.

2001 cadillac deville turn signals stopped working


You need to replace the flasher. It will be located around the inside fuse panel. When you turn the signals on and off being they dont work automaticaly you will hear a clicking sound and that is where it should be.
