    I have an 03 ESV and have the same warning "service ride control". It has stock wheels/tires but it doesnt have a soft ride,,, rather firm. Is this related to the service ride control warning?

    The "service ride Control" keeps coming up on my system. What is the problem related to? Shock Busted, Air Line broke?? Has anyone had this problem and if so what was the problem. Oh yes, when u turn the traction control off, the msg goes away. But, when starting the car again, same thing. It is a 2003 Esclade

    I ended up having to replace the air ride pump thats located behind the drivers side rear wheel. You should be able to hear it shortly after you start your car as it runs for about 10 to 15 seconds. I paid about $200 for a rebuilt pump on ebay and installed it myself in about 30 minutes

I have a 2014 Escalade ESV with 4,000 miles and the ride is rough!! I have complained from the start and the dealer put new tyres on still the same. I have taken it back 5 times .


It could also be the wrong shocks on it. I would suggest going to the dealership and driving a different one of the same model. If it's different feel than your's, have the dealer drive both and explain why.

Why does my 2005 cadillac escalade esv periodically show service ride control message. I replaced the air ride compressor a year ago. I still hear the compressor coming on and my mechanic said the s


If the warning light is coming on for more than a minute, it should be setting a trouble code in the body computer for the problem that is occuring at the time. You may want to have someone check the body computer for trouble codes next.
The compressor would run if the system looses air pressure or if a load is added to the truck.

Replace spedometer cable 2003 gmc yukon xl


There is no speedometer cable on the 2003 Yukon, if there is no transmission issues like shifting problem. Your instrument cluster has gone bad, to pinpoint. Your stepper motor to your speedometer gauge has failed and needs to be replaced. You can do a search on Ebay for the stepper motor for around $10.00 which is better then the $400.00 cost of another instrument cluster.
There was a TSB on the replacement of the instrument cluster for your Yukon free of charge. The only cost to you is the labor charge unless your willing to do the job your self. Just go to the Gm Dealer and give them this TSB Number: # 07187C: Special Coverage Adjustment - Instrument Panel Cluster Gauge Needle Function - (Mar 20, 2009)

How many fuel filters are on a 2003 Cadillac Escalade esv ?


There is only one fuel filter on a 2003 Cadillac, If I remember correctly the fuel filter on my 03' was on the frame rail drivers side rear and it was pretty simple to replace. You do need a fuel filter fuel line quick release tool, common to by at any parts store with the fuel filter that should be replaced every 15,000 to 25,000 miles or once a year.
