Question about 2002 Cadillac Deville
It won't crank over ? Is there a SECURITY light lit on the instrument cluster .
In the under hood fuse / relay box is the start 1 relay , this relay is energized by the PCM - powertrain control module ! This is the relay that controls the starter ! If there is a anti-theft system problem the PCM will not energize the start 1 relay completing the circuit turning on the starter ! . If you knew how you could test right from the start 1 relay socket in the fuse box , rather that just replacing parts ! You can test with a DVOM -digital volt ohm meter or a test light ! Two of the four sockets have battery voltage , one should show ground an the last will show open , this is the control circuit from the PCM .
Chevy Trailblazer no crank testing and information

Ignition switch and neutral safety switch. Next time it happens wiggle thekeys in the ignition switch and try to restart.If it starts its probably the ignition switch. Then locate neutral safety switch on brake pedal and put meter on B+ wire from switch to starter relay and see if you get B+ on the would -be- crank. Next locate B+ wire from starter relay to starter hook a meter to it and see if you get B+ on the would -be crank.
Where ever B+ is missing is your problem.

I've replaced several rear body control modules that go bad and drain the battery. It is located behind the seat, black box about 4" x 5" rectangle. You can use a hand held scanner to diagnose them, the ones I replaced did throw a code. It is complicated and you need a pinout chart to diagnose it with an ohm meter. The ones I got were new and ran around $350.00
