Pull the connector off at the wiper motor, and see if you have power there, with key on and wiper switch on.. If you have power there, either the motor is not working or the ground for the motor is not good.
I guess these older cars had relays for this? Or maybe just a fuse, like 30 amp?
I don't know, if it's a common problem, you may have to find out through an old car guy, like a retired cadillac mechanic. Or, I'm sure there must be an enthusiast's forum for older cadillacs, if you google cadillac.
Good luck.

Your car should have a dip stick that tells you where the oil level is. Use that to determine how much oil you need to add. Add 1 qt at a time until the oil appears on the dip stick, then add the oil slowly, checking the level until it is in the hash marks on the dip stick. If there is no dipstick, drain the oil and measure the oil using a gallon or quart containers and add the recommended amount. Remember there is already about 1 qt of oil in the filter.

Remove the seat belt mounting bolts at the bottom. Then there are 4 retaining clips on the top that get released by using a flat bladed screwdriver between the seatback and the upper shelf. Push down to release them.

Depending on your instrument panel option, if it displays temperature and the error message says something different, the problem is probably in the instrument panel. In any case, I would try replacing the sensor.

Ck the power at the solenoid. You should have 12v off the battery going in... a equal sized ground wire on the other side & a signal wire/key power to trigger the stater to turn it over.
