You have a large drin in the system,look for a shorted circuit and a drain test(with a test light between the positive pole of your battery and the engine off,start pullinf fuses out and see when the test light goes off,if theres is a drain that will be your circuit to check.

place the test light one end (the alligator clip to the cable and the point of the light to the + pole.

Battery is completely dead. If you have a new battery then I would check your alternator, it may not be charging your battery.

What is the best indication that I need a new battery in my 2005 Cadillac STS? Got in the car, pressed the start button, it cranked several times but didn't start. The low battery indicator came on and...


WEll, in terms of TIME, you're there. Your desctiption indicates not much reserve battery. The concern is the battery may be a victim, and not....But really, being able to crank with a really good battery will make your life much better.

After you get the battery changed, have the charging system checked.

I have 2005 cadillac sts. battery was giving problem replaced the battery 2 days back. started with 14.4 volts. now it is 12.9 and goes up to 13.3 volts while running. is there a problem?


If the Battery's connector voltage with running engine, is 13.3 volts than you may have a charging system problem. If alternator and voltage regulator works properly, then with running engine, you have to read 13.8 up to 14.2 volts. Make sure to use a digital multimeter.

I had the same problem for about five months, sometimes the car started for two months than all of a sudden it make take anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour to get it to turn over. Final analysis (when it finally would not start for two days) a new starter was needed. (2001 Cadillac STS)
