 It will be interesting to follow all the developments over the next five years.

Indeed, it keeps us amused. It's an innovative industry, trends change in a heartbeat, it's always been that way, you have to stay ahead of the competition and  invest heavily in R&D, sometimes a home run and sometimes a swing and a miss. Tesla promises a semi truck cab, an electric pickup truck and a new sports car, will they ever turn a profit ? A lot of European country - governments have basically mandated all electric car in 10 years or so, see where it goes. They better upgrade the power grid and have plenty of charging stations.

 It's worthy of the Cadillac name then.

It's under the dashboard below the steering wheel, a rectangular plug. My 1990 Chevy van has OBD I, I can pull the flash codes with a paper clip at the A & B terminals at the MIL terminal ( multifunction indicator lamp ), it blinks and you count how many times and it gives you numbers for the codes, Mike taught me how to do that. My Achilles heal was the oil pressure switch, there was no code for that so I chased my tail around for a few weeks.

 I have no experience with OBD II but any mechanic can deal with that, I can't say you can pull codes with the OBD II on your digital system screen so plug in the code reader and see what the issue is. Okay a code reader is just that, a diagnostic code reader will will give all of the perimeters of all of the OBD II systems, hope that helps you. Some electronic component needs to be replaced, likely no catastrophic failure but it's pure conjecture at this point.

Many people here that are much more knowledgeable about OBD II than I am, we'll see what their input is.

I looked in my books, and can't find how to access diagnostic codes.  My friend is going to bring over a code reader tomorrow, but I don't know where to plug it in??

There should be a diagnostic code to indicate what the issue is. I'm no expert on that vintage but I think the onboard diagnostics can be pulled from your digital screen and give you a failure code.

I was out driving to several locations yesterday when the display board suddenly showed a red engine outline, and said "Low pressure, turn off engine now".  So I pulled over, shut off the engine and checked the oil level.  It's been less than a month since the last oil/filter change and only a couple hundred km on the dial since then.  The oil level was perfect, and clean.  I restarted the car, went to several other locations and came home with no problems.  Several hours later I took out the car again, and within 3 km the same message appeared, this time with chimes bonging, so I turned around and came home and used the truck since then.

The car has just shy of 179k km on it and has been regularly serviced and maintained (I'm a fanatic about oil/filter changes).  Any ideas?

Thank you
Sam

 That one is nice. Essentially a Cadillac version of the Traverse/Acadia/Enclave. I have wondered for many years why Cadillac never had a version of this platform.

 Mike
I'm very impressed with the C1xx platform. Much better than the Lamda platform that was its predecessor.
