Cadillac Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
Is the theft or security light coming on on the dash at all when it will not crank over?
Is the starter engaging at all?
Does the shifter recognize each gear position you select with the shifter at all?
Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete.
O.k.,when it does show the correct shifter position does it then crank over and start?
Is the clicking noise coming from the starter or a relay under hood or can you tell?If you cannot tell can you check for me to see what area this noise is coming from?
You can come back here at any time and post.If I am not online when you reply I will reply as soon as I can.
It sounds like you may have a faulty neutral safety switch on the transmission where the shifter connects as this is a common component to fail needing replaced or an issue with the starter itself needing replaced.If it is the starter clicking then the starter needs replaced.If it is a relay I would lean more on the neutral safety switch needing replaced.
