Question about 1994 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

Service Ride Control shows on display

I have a 1994 Cadillac Deville Concours with the NorthStar engine. It has about 151,000 miles on it and it displays Service Ride Control when you start the car. I am not a mechanic but have seen some advice on how to diagnose this but can always use additional opinions. I am trying to pinpoint the problem and then correct it myself. I appreciate any information you can provide. The car does ride rough up front but other than that, it seems to be fine.

My 1994 cadillac concours doesn't ride smooth it sways a lot and the service ride control message is on the dash how do i fix it and what are the solutions

Those models had air ride on the back and adustable struts on the front. Usually the ride control light is on because of faulty sensors in the struts which are expensive to replace. You could run a scan on the system to find out for sure.
If the car sways on turns, you may have a problem with one of the stablizer bars or links.
I would take it to a shop that does suspension work and get an estimate or two.
