fuel pump or filter, does your battery drain when trying to start? could be your altenator.

Replaced altenator & battery wont hold a

You either have a short or a power drain. You may have a defective mercury switch in the trunk which is leaving the light on. This would drain the battery in a few hours. Also check the switch under the hood. The easy way to check this is to unscrew the bulbs & see if that solves the problem. Good luck!

1998 Cadillac Deville makes a single tick when trying to start it, but it won't start

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.

Alternator not charging on a 1998 cadillac deville after i replaced it with a new one and still the same problem, it will start charging if i bring the rpm's up

Before you start changing everything Test. Check voltage at battery with key off it should read 11.7 to 11.9. Now start car voltage should be 13.5 roughly, rev engine to 2000rpm and voltage should climb another 1.5 average. Let off rpms and it should drop back to intial reading of around 13.5. If things don,t test right then its cables or altenator or ground from battery to altenator housing.

Security system

security??dealer only iam afraid ,but try disconnecting battery temporary.then weather permitting check for a backfeed in altenator.quickest way is to remove wires on back and see if drains the battery still ,if it doesnt then theirs your fault ,its fairly common as a diode packs up in the rectifier pack.
