    You can check the engine codes without using the port by simply holding F1 and F6 together. As far as the reason for the TC to be acting up I have no clue but get the codes and report back and I'm sure someone can help.

    As in the presets on the radio. They are labeled F1-F6.

    Try doing a throttle relearn. Sounds similar to what other members have had in the past.

    Do the throttle relearn and also unplug and clean the connector from the TCM module (passenger side top I believe) It's been over a year since I've had recurrence of the reduced power problem.

    Those aren't codes, they're a list of the modules. If you have codes there will be a little star next to each module it stored in.

    i would try what this guy did http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...ow-speeds.html

    basically jack the car up and take each wheel off and look behind the wheel hub bearing for a loose connector
