Question about Cadillac CTS-V
It could be bad connections to the battery causing a low amperage max. from the battery through the cables.
When you jump it you add the power of another battery to the cables on apparently clean cable ends and it starts.
Could be a bad starter, too.

Welcome to FIxYa.com
Sounds like one of the small wires comming from the ignition lock cylinder has broken in 2 and you will need to replace the ignition lock cylinder and keys. If you don't care if the special key starts the car then all you have to do is measure the key resistor and go to radio shack and buy a resistor close to the same reading and cut the wire at the bottom of the steering column and wire the resistor in place. Then the engine will start up
Thank you for using FixYa.com
