my name is Gary
I am sorry for the long wait
yes the car is fine to drive safe
with those lights all on there is a code or codes set in the ABS system and when those lights are displayed the ABS and traction control are turned off until its fixed
but the brakes will work as usual just NO abs will work if needed
99 % of these are usually a front wheel/hub bearing assembly with the wheel speed sensor built into then sending a wrong signal to the computer
usually that will run @ $ 450 give or take to replace the hub/bearing
this is assuming on the most common issues we have seen with these vehicles turning those lights on in the dash

I have had hub bearings replaced, when they went out before there were no lights on. There was a noise on after about 30 miles of speed. No lights on at all
Cadillac Mechanic: ggrote1, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago
the codes set will need to be checked to see exactly what area the fault is in
but most common its a wheel speed sensor or possibly the wiring to a wheel speed sensor
without knowing the code numbers set in the computer we are just able to go with what is commonly triggering those lights

or even if you can get the code numbers set in the computer we would know 99 % what the area of the issue is

Here are codes c1214 system solenoid relay coil, c1248 EBCM turned on rear brake lamp. I read your answer and here are codes.
Cadillac Mechanic: ggrote1, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago
thank you for the codes
those codes are saying the connection at the EBCM ( electronic brake control module ) or the EBcM internally is bad causing those codes
if the connection and terminals are good at the EBCM then the EBCM must be replaced to correct these codes
Ask Your Own Cadillac Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Are the 2 codes related, or they two different issues. C1224 and C2248 will replacing the EBCM take care of each problem.
Cadillac Mechanic: ggrote1, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago
yes both codes are related
yes that will correct both codes

Cadillac Mechanic: ggrote1, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago
no problems at all
just the lights being displayed and the ABS will NOT work is needed

Cadillac Mechanic: ggrote1, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I saw on computer how you can take it out and send it to to company they will rebuild it. It that a thought or are they phony?
Cadillac Mechanic: ggrote1, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago
some are legit
usually it ends up being @ the same price to just replace it
Ask Your Own Cadillac Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Okay I am curious, they say it is much cheaper. How hard are these to take out. My son is a diesel mechanic . Is it easy to take out
Cadillac Mechanic: ggrote1, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago
yes to remove the EBCM it is easy
if your son is a mechanic he should be able to do this very easy
