This is a 'limp home mode' and is engaged if a fault is detected that may result in damage to the engine if allowed to go unchecked. Take the vehicle to a dealer or Autozone and get a read out of the stored error codes from the on-board diagnostics module as this will help define the exact nature of the fault.

I push the gas pedal on my 2004 CTS and it does not go what is the problem


Your caddy has Electronic throttle control ,drive by wire ! Do you know what this is ? You gas pedal ,if you look at it has wires connected to it .These wires hook up to the engine computer ,the engine computer has more wires that hook up to a dc electric motor under the hood on the throttle body which open an close the throttle plate ,which makes the vehicle go faster or slow down !

Are there any messages on your dash REDUCED POWER ? Check engine light lit ?
