Did check engine light and heat stopping happen at the exact same time?

H​ave you checked coolant level?

Ask Your Own Cadillac Question
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
No
Cadillac Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 24 days ago

It sounds like your coolant level is probably low which could be caused by a small leak. The most common cause of a small leak would be pinhole in radiator or leaking water pump. I'd expect around a $500 repair at a shop depending on what the problem is. My goal is to provide 5 star service so please let me know if you have questions, thanks.
