Code p0017 came up on my 2008 CTS. My mechanic told me that it was a timing chain problem. I took it to cadillac today. They told me it had to do with either how often I changed the oil, or I had the wrong oil put in. They also said that the light kept coming on because it had never been reset. I know that's not right, because my guy reset it! By the way, after they "reset the computer" the light came on again on the way home? So what's really going on?
