The transmission has suffered a big fault - the protection activated so you can't put it in drive and do even more damage. When despite the warning you tried that the defect extended to the engine's ECM which has now gone in protected mode also so the engine has stopped working.
There is nothing you can do, a fault that big can be fixed only at a repair shop - the transmission must be taken out of the car and dismantled to fix it. And i must tell you, it will be very expensive.

My car reads its in reverse and it wont move to any other gear when the shift lever is moved and it wont start because the indicator shows reverse...

Either you have a broken shifter, cable or possibly the range sensor (also known as the neutral safety switch).

What does it mean when the dashboard reads gear indicator fault, service ride control and change oil soon even after i just got it changed along with service vehicle thats what keeps popping up on my dash...

Off the top of my head the following may be the case for your 1995 Cadillac Deville based on my 1997 Cadillac Deville knowledge:

gear indicator fault- has to do with the shift lever sensor down on the column by the feet,

service ride control- has to do with the air ride shocks in the back or the compressor in the front or the ride control height,

change oil soon- has to do with not resetting the % oil life (just press reset button for a few seconds when the oil % life is displayed)

Hope this helps you out.

I pulled up the codes and e91 come up what is it how do i fix it


PRNDL stands for Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive, Low, the same things found on your automatic transmission shifter labels.

The switch is probably bad. Replace it or check connections to it, or check that the Reverse lights go on when the indicator says it is in Reverse on the Dash.

SES light may be on due to this problem.

Maybe not rotated or calibrated right to the shifting positions. I never had this problem in a 1990 Cadillac Deville which is similar to yours.

Good luck.

My car keeps flashing "gear indicator fault". what does that mean is wrong. then every so often it will show "service engine soon". are these 2 things connected?

There is a switch that is turned on/off based on the position of the gear shift lever. The switch is located at the base of the shift lever and is probably going bad.
