Sounds like low power. Could be loose or bad connections or a dying battery. If you can jump start it then probably the battery is bad. If you battery is good then the solenoid on the starter is bad.

When turning right in my 98 deville makes a ticking sort of metal on metal noise.


Could be a brake pad, or a wheel bearing.
If the sound is a little "heavy", it could be the left CV joint.
My car made a clicking sound like that , it was a bent shield around the back of the brake rotors. I remember bending it when I changed a tire.
Also you could see if the brake "Wear indicator" could be hitting the rotor.
Hope this helps.

Something is draining my battery on my 1998 Cadillac DeVille


I suspect parasitic draw. All vehicles draw some power from the batteries when the car is shut off. Certain accessories such as clocks, radios remote door openers and alarms always need power. The normal power used is called parasitic draw.

It is always a very low draw so it doesn't run the battery down. If you install accessories like shortwave radios or plug things like inverters and portable refrigerators into the accessory socket and operate them too long without the engine running you can drain your batteries to the point where the engine won't start. If there is an electrical short in the vehicle or a malfunctioning accessory it could be drawing much more than its normal load causing a drain on the batteries. If you leave your door open and the inside lights stay on all night you could drain the battery down till the car won't start.

Here's also a good resource for your car specifically on narrowing down the cause of the drain.

If you are getting a starting disabled message, it's an indication that your security system is rejecting your ignition key. Your car is equipped with the VATS security system which requires a key with a resistor attached (small chip). Over time the sensor inside the cylinder will not recognize the key. Usually a new key will fix the problem. In more serious cases, it's the cylinder itself that's bad and needs replacement.
