Hello, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** am a Cadillac technician and would be happy to assist you with this.

Does the car have a check engine or any other warning lights on?

If there is no engagement when you try and apply power then we either have a low fluid issue, or there is an issue inside the transmission.

Are you able to check the transmission fluid level?
