What four digit trouble code do you have? It will begin with the letter "P" then four numbers. Like P0302 for example. HTH. -Jim

One code states C0899 and another states P0017

Sounds like a worn timing chain for the P0017 code, which is unusual at only 55,000 miles. The C0899 is an anti-lock brake system (ABS) trouble code. I'd recommend taking it to the Cadillac Dealer for a proper diagnoses and repair. HTH. -Jim


Yeah that is what I was thinking..Because it says crank sensor and something with the alternator or maybe associated with it.. Ugh.. So frustrating.. Not the time for this.. I'm a nurse and we travel at our office.. Then I waitress on the weekends.. So definitely need a car lol.. But I do have a appt tomorrow at Roth cadillac for a scan. Just praying it's nothing severe or expensive.. But thank you so much for your help. I appreciate it ❣️
