the shock sensor is mounted under the dash and is sometimes part of alarm box or separate unit, look for module under the dash and trace wires, it separate box it is often tie wrapped of a set screw, box it 1x1 to 2x2 box usually 3 wires, often attached to steering column or metal strut

I had the same thing on mine it was a sensor for the shock. Bad thing is the sensor is in the shock you have to determine what shock and replace it. Get ready it is not cheap about 500.00

What does the "leveling" light in the dash mean in my 2000 cadillac catera. why is it on and how do i fix it. put new rear shocks in it and now it stays on all the time.


What the leveling system is is basically a height sensor for the rear height, air shocks, an air compressor and air lines. What happens is the height sensor knows what is considered a normal ride height. When people or items are added at the rear seat or trunk the vehicle sits lower. The air compressor will turn on and attempt to pump up the air shocks to raise the height to normal again so the rear end doesn't bottom out.

What can happen is the compressor fails to turn on due to a blown fuse, faulty compressor or defective height sensor. If the compressor turns on the shocks might not be able to pump up due to a line leak or air shock leak.

If you are able to look at the lines or shocks you might find a problem. Otherwise going to your mechanic and have him/her inspect the system to see what the problem might be and then deside if you want to fix it or have them do the repair. Because the light turns on periodically and goes out I would suspect a leak somewhere.

Rear air ride system is not working , seems there are no aftermarket non air ride shocks available , suggest alternative non air ride shock for this year ?


I hate to break the news to you but there are not any available. If the car needs shocks you have to get the air ride one from a dealer parts department.

The good news is....the shocks are probably not your problem...there are valves and sensors, as well as tubing and a pump...any of which could be the problem.

My shocks are overacting. 2000 Buick LeSabre


Yes, it is the sensor that measures the height of the car and tells the system to stop pumping air.

I quick fix - just pull the fuse on the air pump if you want to stop it for now.

THe sensor may just have mud on it. Look near the rear wheel, driver's side, you may have to remove the tire to see the sensor.

1998 Seville SLS, 42,000 mi, Limit speed to 90mph.


it mean that one of the electronic load leveling sensor is not reading. that sensor tells the air pump to fill up that air shock or air bag. the sensors maybe reasonable price wise but if the sensor is reading that an air shock is not holding air pressure and an air shock is not cheap.
