    You need to go to a GM or Caddy specialist for diagnosis. The light is trying to tell you that the computer detects a fault in the control system.
    Here's a directory link for you:

    You have a code situation in your powertrain computer. Any Service Engine Soon Light on, yes? Need to repair those codes, the Caddy goes in to reduced power mode to protect it self from doing more damage.

    here are some shops:
