Your system is in default. Most of the time this is due to a low freon level in your AC system. You will need to have it checked by a shop that can check and diagnose auto temp system faults and repair AC systems.

Already did that and the freon is NOT the problem

Was the system scanned for faults?

You need to have it scanned for faults since it is in default due to a syste error.

So basicly you are telling me to go to the dealer and get it checked out. I'm not sure what I am paying for.

I wish there was some simple fix I could give you, but it is a Cadillac and it has some pretty sophisticated stuff in there. You don't have to get it to a dealer, but you do need to find a shop that can do that type of sophisticated testing.
