SOURCE: Low rear suspension on my 1999 Cadillac DeVille

Do you hear your compressor running? It may be that it is getting tired and ready to burn out on you. I replaced the compressor twice on my Deville before I found that there were so many holes and nicks in the air bags and it was going to cost me almost $1500 to fix the whole system. I went online and found Strutmasters. I got a non air conversion kit for my car and love it. Saved me money and headache.

SOURCE: turn off air suspension on a 95 cadillac deville

On the Cadillac Devilles you may need a relay to turn that suspenison off. If you are having trouble with the air ride all together you may want to check out Strutmasters.com. They offer non air conversion kits for your vehicle at a lower cost than it would be to fix that air ride. Save yourself time, headache and money and check them out.

SOURCE: Air suspension diagram for cadillac catera 1999.

this happened 2 me also because the rear air shocks were popped, they are very expensive 2 replace with factory parts, I found aftermarket air shocks for $80 but you need 2 fill them manually and disconnect the compressor . If you want 2 track the lines the compressor is behind the front bumper near the passenger side wheel well from there you can follow the lines 2 the shocks, meanwhile you should disconnect the air compressor it can burn out from running all the time. The factory shocks are close 2 $300 ea. with the aftermarket shocks there with be a valve stem 4 you 2 fill them with and are easy for a do it yourselfer

SOURCE: Is it better and cheaper to replace rear air suspension to non-air suspension on a 1997 Cadillac DeVille?

It will run about the same, there is a good web site we deal with that sells conversion kits or the air components needed to repair your car, we use them all the time. There pricing is good and also have all parts needed.
Your car may just need air bags, but have run into many cars that the air bags had been leaking for a while and were left not repaired causing the air compressor to run so much that it overheated and cooked the compressor and relay.This is hard to say on yours without looking at it. if the air shocks air leaking then you will need to start with that and then if the car does not lift then you will need to check the fuse and relay, if there are good or replaced and still no air is made then compressor will need replacing.
http://www.arnottindustries.com/part_CADILLAC_Air_Suspension_Parts_yid6_pid35.htmlthe compressor is 175.00 and the two shocks are 275.00.
I did not see a conversion kit for this car. take a look at site and see if you can locate one. good day.

How do i know if my suspension compressor is bad on my 2001 cadillac deville?


if the front stays up the compressor is working
what you have indicates the ride levelling valves to the rear are not working properly
you can test the compressor by attaching a pressure gage to the outlet side

The rear end stays up untill you take air line loose let air out it will go down but will come up again in a few days


this sounds like the load leveling sensor at the rear of the car is not working or gets stuck in the low position causing the air compressor to pump air into the rear suspension,or it is defective and needs replacing.

The rear of the car sets higher than the front, suspension is stiff in the back to. Is there a suspension control system that is not working


There's a level sensor in the back of most cars that have air ride suspension such as Cadillac Devilles.

If there is plenty of pressure, it's probably not a leaky air shock aborber nor is it a bad air pump under the hood.

Check for an air leak in the air suspension system, if there is an air leak the system will continually run until it burns out the ride level compressor.

What is the possible problem when my 98 deville rear suspension is jacked up to the top all the time? is there a way to reset it This occured after the last time I had the car in for repair and then...


I have seen this before. They put car on lift which lets suspension drop. When they set it back down the Air ride leveling rods get stuck and think they need to stay full. Like what was already mentioned, check your levelers located next to your suspension air bags to see if they are stuck.

1998 seville sts check suspension light stays on. New shocks on rear.


that system has a pump, you should hear it run when you start the car. it also has a bleed valve. i have seen the valve get stuck before. i don't remember what year caddillac stopped putting the suspension switch in the trunk, but if the switch has been turned off the light will remain on as well. there is a level sensor under the rear of the car connected to the suspension you can try to disconnect the arm and manually move it and see if the pump kicks on. there is a few second delay before you hear the pump. if the fuses are good and the switch is on check for voltage at the pump when you move the level sensor. check for signal from the sensor. if pump runs and shock don't air up check for air leaks with soap water spray, and/or air bypassing valve. hope i helped you...dustang
