2012 Cadillac CTS...

2012 Cadillac CTS 56000mi lost all power to the wheels while traveling at 70mph. Engine seems to run fine just no power to wheels.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

Consistent

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your CTS yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am not fixing it my self. We are traveling to Fla., and are away from home. Got towed to a GM dealer but service dept. was not open on Sat.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I don't think so.

Any warning lights on?

While waiting for the tow truck I noticed the check engine light was on. I am not sure if the light stays on when the engine is not running.

Sounds like a transmission failure. I would have it towed to the repair shop you use

Was the motor reving or just no throttle response
