Hi. this car is equipped with a air ride system that is very sophisticated. There are four air bag Assembly that are located and attached to each tire axle on your car. each axle has a air ride sensor unit that regulates the air in and out flow during transit. there are air flow lines that run to each tire or suspension assembly as well. these lines are fed threw a compressor system that is located inside the trunk.

When you had your unfortunate accident, the damage on the front driver side has initiated some sort of damage that has damaged the sensor or it has damaged the air bag or sir line assembly. the warning light is a reminder that is instructing you or the owner , to take this car in for this service.

I suspect there has been some sort of damage to the air bag assembly on the affected side of your vehicle.

it may be a sensor or it could be more serious like an damaged air line or bag. The best way to find out is to take it in for the inspection by a qualified service tech.

PLease rate and god bless:)

Service ride control


It's time to replace the rear shocks. There expensive like $250.00 and up each and if your not going to be towing, most people replace them with a good set of shocks and not the factor OEM air shock which you have for the auto ride height system. If your going to just buy and good set of normal gas shocks. Pull the fuse to     the auto ride system so the light on the dash is off.
Good luck and hope this helps. The auto ride system was there for towing heavy trailers to keep the ride hight. The rear suspension is actually soft so you have a soft ride and the shock keeps it from bouncing. If your not towing heavy or carring heavy loads, you should be fine with a conventional gas shocks and you may find it better. I found the Monroe Reflex shocks to be more stable then the OEM around corners and highway driving.

Service ride control


more than likely its a bad wheel sensor or some kind of sensor, the ride control monitors the traction and suspension, I had to replace a wheel sensor that caused the service ride control, i think the part was around 90.00 and the dealer charged around 50.00 to put it in, more than likely that is your problem, just cross your fingers to hope its nothing more

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.
