All,

My wife and I own a 2017 Cadillac Escalade ESV Platinum 2WD. Since roughly 15,00 miles we have experienced a serious concern where the vehicle will automatically adjust the Gas/Brake pedals all the way forward and will randomly cycle through sport mode/tour mode and cycle the traction control on and off. This does occur at start-up and while driving the vehicle. I feel this is extremely dangerous as it can lead to the loss of control of the vehicle.

Video 1 - Pedal Issue
Video 2 - Tour/Sport Mode
Video 3 - Modes Switch while Driving

The vehicle has been into the dealership three different times. They have replaced the 'switch' twice and this last time they claim the system/electronics were ok and they were unable to locate a cause.

Another couple of problems have also developed with the electronics in the vehicle where:
1) The rear hatch with close on its own without the remote or under-bumper sensor being triggered. The hatch has also opened on its own while in a shopping mall parking lot. [Dealer unable to locate a cause]
2) The main infotainment display has developed a large line down the middle of the screen. [Dealer replaced a module in the radio]

Has anyone else experienced an issue like this? Would you be willing to share your story/resolution? Would you pursue a lemon law claim if you had these issues with your vehicle?

One user suggested this problem may be in the wiring harness. Thoughts?

Thanks for the feedback in advance.

I currently have a lemon law claim on my 2016 ESV with 46k miles. I haven’t had this issue, but a ton of others.

I provided all the information you requested via email. There are at least two GM cases already on this vehicle -- Look forward to hearing back.

Cadillac Customer Service - Did not receive a response/reply. Called the Cadillac customer service number to follow-up on my case and across multiple days/times the phone hangs-up when "transferring" after following the prompts. :mad:
