Check engine icon came on. Lite steady, books said check gas cap.

I know on one of my older Caddy's I could do a on-board check and then clear or set.

On older Cadillacs you could do everything from the dash board (look at codes, reset them, etc.). On the newer Cadillacs you can do nothing from the dash. You have to attach a diagnostic tool to the OBD port and do everything using the tool. Most Sears stores and automotive stores (Advance, Pep Boys, AutoZone, etc.) have them at various prices and various capabilities. Be sure and get a new one that has the CAN interface. Without CAN capability, the tools might not work on some cars.

Thanks, I was checking into purchasing the tester at AutoZone and they ran the test for me at NO Charge. It was what I figured it was going to be (catalytic converter)
Thanks

If you have less than 80,000 on it...the Catalytic converter will be under warranty.
