Question about 2004 Cadillac Sts
I was told it was a air bag suspention problem. Something to do with the shocks or something about the raising and lowering of the suspension due to speeds and handleling. While driving the dash lights up service air bag, Limited to 90 mph. Is what I was told correct? Thank u for any help and advise. Also when I hit a ridge in the road the front end rattles but mostly just going straight. Is this my struts, tirods ext?
HI, First off, it's hard to say what is causing the rattling under your car (for anyone, even a tech driving your car), so the best way to find out is to have it put on a lift and checked. Many service centers that sell shocks adn struts will take a look for you, mostly because it's a potential job for them. Any shop that would charge you to do this is not the place you should be taking it to. Second, in the STS, while there are airbag sensor problems reported occasionally, the sensors are usually the ones behind the front bumper. Is it possible that the person who told you this may be talking about the "shock" (hydrolic piston) that the front bumper is attached to? The sensors are right there, and maybe they mean that a bad piston can create a problem with the airbag sensor. That sounds accurate. As far as while you're driving, the sheer forward air pressure forced against the front bumper may be setting off the faulty sensor warning. It's speculation at this point, but it just may be the problem. You can take care of these individual things in a measured way, and avoid paying for unnecessary repairs.
