Question about 1996 Cadillac DeVille
Codes pc0717 and pc0340
Depends on your code but chances are it will not. Your car has the older OBD scanning system but you can still get a scan done at a shop to check and see what your code is.

The service engine soon light indicates you have a problem with the engine management system.The only way to get it to stay off is to lacate and repair whatever is not working correctly. Requires very specialized equipment. Take it to your mechanic.

The warranty company was able to find a used transmission for $900 which was still under warranty and it will cost 11.5 hours for the install, plus shop supplies and diagnostic. Total cost about $2000. I drove the car for probably at least 10,000 miles and it was leaking a small amount of transmission fluid even after I fixed a seal (waste of money) before getting it fixed. I didn't see the fluid though on my garage floor though as there is something that would catch it.
Cadillac dealer stated this is a known problem with the clutch assembly and that there is a bulletin out on it. The reason the car stalls is due to the transmission not the engine. When the car is at a light or the like there is apparently too much strain from the tranny and it stalls the engine. My car didn't get that far, but after reading a bunch of stuff and looking up the codes it appears to be the case. Of course you could get lucky and the solenoid is just bad, probably not though due to the bulletin.
You can read the codes and clear the codes easy enough. If you don't know how there are many posts on the net.

yes and no disconnect the battery both sides, now without touching the battery touch black to red wires, this resets any codes. if the light comes back on you will need a pcm scan to get any error codes from it.

you can try taking the positive cable off for about 3-secs and check in you owner manual to see if it tell you how and if you do have one try this website www.edmunds.com to see if you can download one for you car.

When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.
