Benjamin, Go into User CP up in the blue bar ^^^ and update your signature with your car, model, and year. It helps to know what you're asking about: they're all Cadillacs, but all different. And your problem is vehicle specific.

I believe the computer wont process info with less than 9volts , Thats why it shut down , Charge batt to see if it will restart and if that checks out get alt load tested and go from there, These cars have a lot of elcetronics and batt and alt are priority..

Sounds like a bad alternator to me. The car was running using only the juice from the battery until the battery went dead.
