HI,

Also, can you recheck the year as the CTS was not introduced until 2003

Cadillac Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 2 months ago

HI,

I will have to opt out as I dont have for the DTS, but if you have the originals, just remove the solenoid portion and plug back into the connector and that will turn the light off.

If another expert has the diagram needed, they will post here to you
