Question about 2001 Cadillac DeVille
Hello: Make sure your battery cables are clean at the battery (no corrosion) then check the ground wire (the same size as the battery cable under the hood on the passenger side where it attaches to the alternator. This bolt is hard to see and hard to get to. It has a 15 mm head. You might find it easier to remove both cooling fans, the driver side first then the one in front of the alternator then you can get to the bolt.

I would test the battery. Some batteries that show a full charge may have a bad cell in it. I have had two batteries that had a bad cell and gave the same symptoms as yours and as soon as I placed a new one in it it started up perfect.
If you try a new battery and same thing happens then it sounds like a short, a hot wire exposed and grounding out on the metal of car or other wires.
But try the battery first. Make sure your battery connectors are in good shape, no corrosion, cracks, or exposed wiring along the cable.
