can you turn off the engine light from the driver's seat thru the DIC ?? or some other way, as opposed to the garage having to do it ??

Look up "clear codes" or "cadillac codes" on this forum. If it has been covered once it has been covered 1000 times. The reset procedure is there.

More importantly, you need to find out whats causing the light to turn on :rolleyes:

yeah, i searched 'clear codes' and got 15 pages to siphon thru...none which discussed how to get rid of the yellow 'engine light'.

just wanted to know if you can reset the engine light yourself...

i already know whats causing it to go off....p0410. good for me.

See the "sticky" in the Tech Tips section. That said, if the fault is still present, the DTC will just reset and the light will come back on.

saw the sticky, thanks.

so the part i'm missing is this - if you reset all codes, THEN, your engine light will go off ?!

so back to the original question, is that the only to shut the engine light off !

Yes, the light will go off and the codes that set it will be cleared, but if the fault that set the DTC and turned on the light is not repaired and is detected again, the DTC will be restored and the light will be reset in a viscous circle.

You can go to the local auto parts store, or get a code reader and turn it off, but until the problem is fixed-it will come right back on.

No need for a code reader on a Cadillac. It is all done from the DIC.
