Question about 1998 Cadillac Catera
This could be several different issues ranging from poor connections to a faulty starter or ignition switch.
I would first recommend that you remove the battery cables and clean both the terminal ends and the battery posts. Use a good wire brush or terminal brush.
You can also use some baking soda and cover the terminals then add a little water to get the baking soda started. give it about 2 minutes then rinse with water.
Also inspect both cables all the way to there connection points. Insure a good tight fit and no corrosion and no frayed cables or broken insulation.
Once this is done you can reconnect your battery cables and test start the car. If it still has the same issue then you will likely need to remove the starter and take it be tested at almost any auto parts store.
