Service ride control light

94 Cad deville service ride control light comes on. I was told by a garage that my battery was to old to keep the ride pumped up, replaced the battery and the light still comes on. only have 48500 miles on car, and drive it 2000 miles a year.

    i have the same problem ('94 de ville sedan) changed the battery also. also was told it could be a vacuum problem. any idea?

    I have the same problem. Dealer did a diagnostic on the system and concluded it was a sensor/compressor problem and would cost $700 to replace the unit. I can punch that display button a million times to clear the message, rather than pay that much for such a problem!

    I was told it was my front left shock/strut that needed replacing. I haven't replaced it yet (it certainly rides like it needs replacing) so I can't say if thats it for sure or not. It's my understanding that if there's any component with the ride control out (any of the shock & struts) that message could come up.

Tell your service man that he his full of it. You need to check your rear shocks they have wires comeing out the top see if they are all have good connections they may have to be replaced they are very hard to find.

Service ride control


Hi there:The service ride control light being on is letting you know the system has detected a fault.This can be caused by a defective esc module or a bad compressor. need to have codes pulled out of the electronic suspension control module.


Need some specific dealer tools in order to reset it or solve it.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

What does it mean when the dashboard reads gear indicator fault, service ride control and change oil soon even after i just got it changed along with service vehicle thats what keeps popping up on my dash...


Off the top of my head the following may be the case for your 1995 Cadillac Deville based on my 1997 Cadillac Deville knowledge:

gear indicator fault- has to do with the shift lever sensor down on the column by the feet,

service ride control- has to do with the air ride shocks in the back or the compressor in the front or the ride control height,

change oil soon- has to do with not resetting the % oil life (just press reset button for a few seconds when the oil % life is displayed)

Hope this helps you out.

Service ride control dash lights and stays on


You have one or more Electronic Shocks going bad on your vehicle suspension. The shocks are pretty expensive, about $500-600 dollars apiece from the Cadillac Dealer. If you want to turn the light off you can disconnect the battery for about 15 min. , but the Trouble Code may come on again.

Service ride control


the light can be reset using a diagnostic scan tool. perhaps the mechan did not have the right interface for your vehicle. the body control module is what is responsible for this system and not the ecm( engine control module)now the only way for sure to know if the mechanic actually fix the problem is to check if the parts needed were replace under the vehicle ie the the ride control servo motors on the rear axles and/or leveler valve

Service ride control!


I had all suspension replaced by a cadillac dealer for $1400.00 in Arizona. They told me they would have to run a wire from the back to the front so the service ride control light would not come on all the time. They wanted me to bring the car back in to fix this but I needed to return home. I just hit the reset button everytime I start the car to remove the warning. I don't know if this would help you ...it's just info I have when you change to the new suspension in the rear.

Level sensor if the car use air suspension.

You need to do a computer diagnostic. On a repair shop.
