    2001 Deville DHS won't start. Everything else works fine. Hear click. No start.

    I've got a 2001 deville DHS. I get in the car and try to start it but nothing happens. All of the accessories work and everything turns on except the motor. I hear a click up front when I try to crank it but nothing happens. I tried to get the codes by pressing the "on/off and info up" and all i get is IPM B0429 current. Which I dont think has anything to do with it not starting. (rear actuator motor)

    What is your battery voltage, both static and while cranking? Do the headlights go real dim when you crank? I suspect you need a new battery.

    Usually a click means the battery dosent have enough charge to engage the starter starting a motor takes alot of juice then the alternator replaces it while u drive, there aint to many things in the starting chain of a car i just replaced all three my alternators voltage regulator got stuck and cooked my battery and in return trying to crank the car with low to no power burned out my starter rare occurence but can happen since all parts except the battery where original, though the alternator and battery are more closely tied then the starter and ones usually the culprit when your having starting problems
