Just out of nothing to do, Decided to check DTC`s on the Eldo and got an E31 (MAP sensor circuit fault (short) ) In History. Never had any drivability issues, Car is running as best its ever been and i never saw any SES dash lights. Curious as to why this would set? The E31 code specifies a SHORT unlike other codes related to the MAP sensor which indicate OPEN, Circuit fault or Out of range or MAP sensor itself. Thoughts?

==========================
it could have been a momentary BLIP in the system -

a "current" code goes to "history" when the problem goes away -

I would simply clear it -
and worry about if it returns as a current code -

That's the main problem with checking codes for no reason. Anything "history" needs to be erased. Only check current codes. Chill out, erase the old code, have a beer!

Brought one and found out that they change and add some different things to the 2015 ESV and when I call Cadillac their answer was if I do not like the one I got trade it in and buy the newer version. Go not know how anyone else feel but you do not give a loyal customer an answer like that. uts a slip in the face to all who brought a 2015 ESV and then they change it without letting you know they was doing that before you brought one. So after you spend your money they don't care you brought it so deal with it.
