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.

  1. Turn the ignition key to the RUN position.
  2. Press the INFO button on the Driver Information Center (DIC) button to display ENGINE OIL LIFE.
  3. Fully push and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. If the CHANGE OIL SOON light flashes 2 times, the system is reset. However if the light comes on and stays on for 5 seconds, the system did not reset. Repeat the he procedure if the system does not reset.

SOURCE: service engine soon light came on and stays on

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.

How to reset check engine light and change oil soon light

You should not reset the ck eng light until you have repaired the problem. Its just going to come on again, unhooking the battery MAY reset it. To reset the change oil light, turn the key on and floor the gas pedal 3 times, that should reset the light.
