I took it to a cadillac garage and the said the only codes coming up are the ABS modlule and the pump. So we replaced these and the ABS light went out.

Thank you. I would start by checking the connections at the battery and having the battery tested. Also make sure that the ground connections on the negative cable are clean and tight. It sounds like you are having a voltage issue.

I am not in a place where I can make a call. If you want a phone call I can opt out and allow another expert to help.

I am not trying to charge for a call. That is an automatic response. As I said, I cannot make a call. I will opt out and allow someone else to help you.
