Did you replace tha battery or by chance was the battery dead?

Yes , its the first thing that I did


Does it have three second fuel pump run when you turn key to run position/ in between you should let i rest 5 or so seconds then try it again also some of these cadilacs have oil pressure sending unit wich takes the duty of keeping fuel pressure up is fuel pressure lowering as engine quits eg. rev up some in your few seconds of running while the engine is quit momentum keeps it turning for a short time see if you r pressure maintain thru the wind down

SSD = Speed Sensitive Damping. That is ride control (shocks) and has nothing to do with your no run problem. If the onboard computer detects a lack of oil pressure it cuts off the fuel supply to the engine. Check your oil level, oil filter and oil pressure switch.

I do not recognize that code - contact John Monzo - and he will tell you exactly how to fix it.
