the 1st thing you do is check and see if the brake lights are working, the system locks in park until it senses the brake pedal is pushed, so if the brake light switch is not working then it will not come out of park position.

Take it to mechanic and have it repaired. Or go to your local auto supply store and look for a Chilton and it will have detailed instructions on how to do it yourself. If you do it the DIY route and hit any snags come back here and get some help but Chiltons is VERY thorough.

The most likely problem is the locking mecanism in your shif selector.
There is a selenoid that prevent the car from get it out of park unless you push the brake pedal while the car is running or the ignition switch is on.
The problem could be in the brake switch itself under the dash or the selenoid in the shifter console.

If your Cadillac uses a magazine to hold CDs, the CD is stuck somewhere between its slot in the magazine and the player mechanism. It may be necessary to disassemble the player to solve the problem

I'm afraid you are at the mercy of the dealer on this one my friend! Other than electrical/computer diagnostics there is no service information available to the aftermarket. I am a professional repair technician and I can't even get a parts list for your roof system. You now know WHY the previous owner wanted to sell the car!

this is a tough one but you can actually jump it with the hood closed if you are careful and know what you are doing. If you jack the front of the vehicle up and put it on jack stands you will be able to see the starter underneath right between the motor and the trans. there is one large wire running to it this is the positive directly from the battery. the ground can be connected anywhere on the frame. then you should be able to use the keyless entry into it to open the hood or the trunk to replace the battery.

If you remove the seat bottom it will let you get to the bolts that hold the back in place.

Usually a small flat screw driver will work for removing the plastic cover, but you must be careful as the plastic gets quite brittle over time and is very prone to crack. There are just small tabs that hold the cover into the metal bezel.

I’m not sure but I think the newer cars don’t have one.
