Start checking out your engine and transmission mounts. Check the rubber to make sure it isn't torn.

What makes the Transmission Light come on a 1999 Cadillac Catera?

When the transmission light would come on, it usually menas that there is an issue. On mine, it would come on when the transmission got hot. A lot of times once the computer detects a problem, it will run the transmission in a "safe mode". This mode feels like you have no lower gears, and when you start from a stop or low speed, it is the same as starting in 3rd or 4th gear. This is designed to protect the tranny from any unnecessary or further damage until you can get it looked at. In my instance, the transmission cooling lines where plugged and collapsed and therefore the cooling circuit was inadequate. Unfortunately, the tranny had seen too much heat already and required rebuild..Hope this helps and good luck !!
