Question about 1996 Cadillac DeVille

96 sedan deville with code rs0030

I dont have the gm manual and all on line searches turn up empty. I know its road suspension but i'm hoping to isolate it to either a senser or the rss control module.. Any help would be appreciated. Oh it is current not history.

    would you happen to know where the solenoid is located?

  • Jim Krause Sep 03, 2009

    I solved my own problem by replacing the front struts and rear air shocks with a passive system for $428.00 and did it myself. Rides like new again.

    I replaced my front struts and rear shocks with a all passive system and eliminated the service ride control along with saving $1000.00. Whole system was $800.00 and about 4hrs worth of easy work.

1996 cadillac deville service ride control alert light is on. how do i check this out. can i fix this myself ?>

You need the trouble code (DTC) to troubleshoot exactly what's wrong - you can use a code reader to see this. If you have the road sensing suspension option, it's usually one of the four wheel vertical motion sensors, and if that's the problem, GM sells a replacement sensor kit that you should be able to install.

2003 DeVille DHS rear suspension: what type of air suspension system is employed? My rear end is bouncing all over, especially when it's below freezing. Local shop says if it's air shocks repair will be...

A GM dealer can tell you if you give him the VIN number, but the simplest way is to check one of the rear struts for an electrical connection (will also have a leveling air line connection). If there is one, you have a road sensing suspension (RSS) with rear leveling capability - if not, just air shocks. If you have RSS, these struts are very expensive and notoriously unreliable, and you may want to replace them with air shocks. However, if you do this you will have to trick the RSS into thinking they are still there by terminating each electrical connector with a resistor (see the Cadillac Forums website).

Hello: Check the stablizer links on the front suspension, they have been a high failure rate item. The noise resembles loose lumber on the bed of a pickup truck.

Yes i have a 96 cadillac deville i just bought i cant feel it shifting.It goes right into gear and goes down the road but dont feel it shifting.

Try manually shifting it and see if you can feel it shifting.You should be able to.Then just drive it in drive light normal and see if you can feel it.Usually you will get a check engine light or have the transmission codes checked if you do feel it.Sometimes these transmissions are very smooth.Hope this helps.

1992 Cadillac Deville Sedan

i have two codes on my 92 cadillac sadan deville that read e 12 and e 96. i understand what they both mean. e12 is 'no distributor signal', and the other e 96 is 'torque convertor is overstrewsed'. i know that the toruque convertor is a big project itself, so im goin to send that into the professionals. but i might be able to fix the distributor, if it is the cap, or a false ground wire which hopefully it is. there is about 170,000 mi, and have gone threw alot of parts that i installed myself, but im not goin to let her go yet she still got alot of miles to go. i just need help on checking out the distributor cap for replacement.
