Question about Cadillac Seville
Hi, the problem you are having could be down to one of a couple of things now the first and most obvious would be the starter motor but as you say you hear no clicking then this would need checking before replacing.
Now the second cause could be that if you have an electronic key fob then this could mean the battery is going flat and needs replacing as this would cause the imobiliser to stay on if the battery in the key fob was flat or nearly flat so if you have an electronic fob that opens the doors or the key is coded then the chances are the battery will need replacing.
If your car has an imobiliser then this could be also causing you problems you would need to check the starter and the fob first before spending money getting the imobiliser changed.
When the car dont turn over try giving the starter motor a couple of hits with an hammer if after doing this the car then starts then the chances are the starter motor is at fault.
One other way of testing the starter motor is if your car has manual gear box when the car dont turn over put the car into 2nd gear and get someone to push you so that you turn the engine over this way then try starting with the key if this then starts then this points towards starter problems.
Let me know how you get on ok
