Noise when starting truck

Asked by Apr 28, 2016 at 10:08 AM about the 2010 Cadillac Escalade EXT Luxury

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi.
When I start my car it makes this weird jerking noise
and sometimes doesn't start give it 5 mins and start
it and makes the same noise. I took it to a friend
that's a mechanic and charged the started and
water pump and still have the same problem. So
took it to the Cadillac dealer they did a computer
check and said it was my battery so got it replace
and it was good for a month and the same problem
started again and now it's at the dealer and they
don't know what the problem is.  But they called a
day later and said they got a code from the chip in
my key so are they correct this time or is it
something else cause the problem? Please help?

perhaps the starter solenoid spring is broken~

I would need have your vehicle to diagnose it, find a mechanic or shop that owns an old GM tech 2 scanner,or Gm MDI GDS2 if they don't move on until you do! call around. Make sure you speak with a competent Tech who can diagnose electrical issues and the simple common issues to. Regards

I already took it to the mechanic and the Cadillac dealer twice and both can't figure out the problem I also emailed them videos of the sound and still don't know I'm so frustrated

How can I post the video

Can you upload it somewhere else then send the link? I'm not sure Cargurus allows video uploads. send it as a wave file?
