If the light is on there are DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's stored in ABS - anti - lock brakes computer . Have codes checked first , something wrong with electrical part of antilock brakes , I know, what does ABS have to do with traction control ! traction control is a function of the ABS control module . Leaking shocks ? clarify , air shocks etc.... Before you start guessing , have it check for codes .
This vehicle is equipped with the TRW 440 V antilock braking system.
The vehicle is equipped with the following braking systems:
?€¢
Antilock Brake System (ABS)


?€¢
Engine Drag Control (EDC)


?€¢
Dynamic Rear Proportioning (DRP)


?€¢
Traction Control System (TCS)


?€¢
Vehicle Stability Enhancement System (VSES) (w/JL4)

The following components are involved in the operation of the above systems:
?€¢
Electronic brake control module (EBCM)--The EBCM controls the system functions and detects failures.


?€¢
Electronic brake control module (EBCM)--The EBCM controls the system functions and detects failures.


The EBCM contains the following components:


-
System relay--The system relay is energized when the ignition is ON and no ABS DTCs are present. It supplies battery positive voltage to the solenoid valves and pump motor.


-
Vent tube--The vent tube, located in the EBCM connector, is an opening to the internal cavity of the EBCM. It allows ventilation of the EBCM internals.


?€¢
Brake pressure modulator valve (BPMV)--The BPMV contains the hydraulic valves and pump motor that are controlled electrically by the EBCM. The BPMV uses a 4 circuit configuration with a diagonal split. The BPMV directs fluid from the reservoir of the master cylinder to the left front and right rear wheels and fluid from the other reservoir to the right front and left rear wheels. The diagonal circuits are hydraulically isolated so that a leak or malfunction in one circuit will allow continued braking ability on the other.


Important: There is a rubber isolator located under the BPMV and on the mounting studs. The rubber isolators protect the BPMV and the EBCM from vehicle vibrations.


?€¢
The BPMV contains the following components:


-
Pump motor


-
Inlet valves (one per wheel)


-
Outlet valves (one per wheel)


-
Master cylinder isolation valves (one per drive wheel)


-
Prime valves (one per drive wheel)


?€¢
Wheel speed sensors (WSS)--As the wheel spins, the wheel speed sensor produces an AC signal. The EBCM uses this AC signal to calculate wheel speed. The wheel speed sensors are replaceable only as part of the wheel hub and bearing assemblies.


?€¢
Traction control switch--The TCS is manually disabled or enabled using the traction control switch.


?€¢
Stoplamp switch--The EBCM uses the stoplamp switch as an indication that the brake pedal is applied.


?€¢
Lateral accelerometer sensor (w/JL4)--The EBCM uses the lateral accelerometer sensor as an indication of the lateral acceleration of the vehicle.


?€¢
Yaw rate sensor (w/JL4)--The EBCM uses the yaw rate sensor as an indication of the yaw rate of the vehicle.


?€¢
Steering wheel position sensor (SWPS) (w/JL4)--The EBCM uses the SWPS as an indication of the position and rotation of the steering wheel.


This systems are very complex , your best bet would be to take it to a qualified repair shop .

SOURCE: what causes the fuel pump fuse to keep blowing?

A fuel pump is a kind of motor and any motor is subject to having shorted windings. If the shorts weren't catastrophic, the pump could still be functional but drawing much higher currents than when built. I have an ugly feeling your fuel pump in located inside your gas tank which would require removing the tank to replace it.
I'm pretty sure that the real factory service manual would have a test (resistance measurement) that would quickly find whether the pump is healthy, whereas the aftermarket books from Haynes or Chilton may not.

Welcome to the Cadillac world. These are the second worst to work on when it comes to computers/wiring. Mercedes are the worst. Diagnostic time at my house is $300(tells you what is wrong). I refuse to do them at work, they don't charge enough and I get yelled at for taking to much time. Just take it to a dealer.

Why does my ABS light stays on and sometimes i get a vibration in the brake petal causing my 2002 Cadillac escalade not wanting to stop?


Sounds like a fault with the Antilock Braking System. The vibration in the pedal is the ABS working. With your foot on the brake pedal, it releases and re-applies the brakes to stop a skid from the wheels locking up. You need professional service for brakes.

Seems to be a known issue on all Cadillac and requires the ABS module to be replaced.
