The contact owns a 2007 Cadillac Dts. The contact stated that an independent repair facility had been informed more than once that the oil pressure warning indicator illuminated several times. The dealer had not been contacted. While driving at an unspecified rate of speed, the oil pressure warning indicator flashed, there was a sudden loss of power, and the brake pedal was stiff when depressed. As a result, the contact crashed into the rear of an 18 wheeler. The driver sustained minor bruising and pain to the shoulders and forearms. Medical attention was received. The contact stated that the driver's side air bag deployed, but was uncertain if the front passenger and side curtain air bags also deployed. A police report was filed. The vehicle was towed to a tow lot. The insurance company was notified of the crash and had not yet investigated the cause of the crash. The manufacturer was notified of the crash and the contact was awaiting to determine if they could conduct an investigation. The VIN was not available. The approximate failure mileage was 119,000.

My battery constantly goes dead, everytime it rains, snows or even gets cold. I brought a brand new battery and a brand new alternator and it still does the same thing. The air-bag message keeps coming up along with every electrical component there is on this car. I have taken it to dealerships to get diagnostics and they never find anything wrong. This is not safe for my kids to ride in please advise.
