Cadillac Escalade: 07 escalade just purchased. 2 days ago,

Customer Question

07 escalade just purchased. 2 days ago, my wife says battery is dead and then 5 minutes later she calls to say never mind, it started. Last night I came home and it was dead and still will not start. Took battery to be tested and it tested fine. The car will not jump, it just clicks.. Check engine light is on now .
