"check ride control" /suspension problems?

The "check ride control" light just turned on. I read my manual and it said that it has something to do with the suspension. Is this too expensive to fix?

That is an indication that your air shocks at the rear needs to be replaced or there is a sensor that may have gone bad, event the air pump mey not be working. Most owners replace the more expensive air shocks with good conventional shocks like Monroe Reflex Shocks if there not towing heavy trailers. You can have the conventional shocks installed and have the ride control system deactivated. First check your fuse just t make sure the fuse to the air compressor has not gone bad, and the air ride leveling sensor, wire harness has not been damaged due to corrosion.

Depends what is wrong with it. Take it to the dealer, have them check it and give you a quote to fix it, then you will know how expensive it is.

Service suspension system


You need some one with a new scanner to enable it to turn on manually to see if it is the pump or something else like a height sensor. Check bout control module for codes.

I have a 1995 cadillac seville that reads service ride control


Generally speaking, the warning light is telling you the air suspension is faulty or one of the ride adjustable struts can't be controlled by the body computer.
You will need to figure out what the problem is to proceed. Cadillac had big problems with the speed sensitive struts and most people disregard the light if that is the problem.

Air suspension light


The air ride suspension light turns on when for whatever reason the air ride suspention is NOT on. So, either the suspension switch in the trunk is turned off, or you have a problem with your air ride suspension. I ran into the same thing last week. When I checked the switch in the trunk, sure enough it was switched on. I flipped the switch off, turned the car on and then flipped the switch in the trunk to on position. It has been fine ever since. Give it a try. GOOD LUCK.

How do i reset the SERVICE RIDE CONTROL message that comes up every time i turn on my truck once i've made sure the shocks and compressor are in good shape


THIS LIGHT IS ON BECAUSE THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE AIR SUSPENSION RIDE CONTROL, IT WILL GO OFF AS SOON AS U REPAIR THAT PROBLEM WHICH IS MOST LIKELY A LEAKING AIR SUSPENSION AIR BAG, THERE IS NO RESET AS THE RIDE CONTROL DOESN''T HAVE A MEMORY AND CAN'T STORE CODES, IT ONLY COMES ON WHEN A PROBLEM IS PRESENT IN REAL TIME.

Check suspension light on after car is fixed


Im sure your probably aware that your Town Car has air ride suspension and that there is a switch in the trunk that you need to turn off before raising the vehicle for any reason. With that being said if your car sits pretty low and you recently had to raise the vehicle and did not turn the air ride off then its possible that you could have blown your air ride bags. Hopefully thats not the case and everything is still okay but what i would do first is check to see if it is on, and if not turn it on and see if your check suspension light goes off. If that doesnt work then you should bring it back to the place that worked on your vehicle and tell them the light came on or never turned off. They should look at it and it might be something as simple as reseting it. Its possible that the users manuel will tell you exactly how to reset it if you want to do it yourself. Hope this was helpful in some way and please leave feedback. Good luck!

Warning Light on the dash is illuminated all the time and it says, "BAS ESP"


This is the Brake Assistance/Electronic Stablilty malfunction light, it is the equivalent of an ABS (antilock brake) / electronic suspension control (traction control, rollover control, electronic suspension control) light. It basically means you have a problem in either your electronic ABS, traction control, or some other advanced electronic suspension control problem... Your car is fine to drive like it is, unless you detect some other driveability issue other than the dash light... (99.9% of the time it's something irrelevant and maybe stupid; that's what you get for driving electronic cars...) Your best bet to get rid of the light would be to get the car to an auto shop with a reader that can read ABS/EBS, brake and suspension codes to really find out why the light is on (usually a wheel speed sensor, or something like it...)

1997 Lincoln Continental Suspension Conversion Problem


It could be a wheel speed sensor that went out or something... When working with the wiring, something could have just gotten crossed or tapped to get these codes as well. The compressor shouldnt be running anymore if everything was tied off properly. Take it in somewhere and have the codes cleared and that should fix the problem hopefully. I know AutoZone has a reader, but I do not know if they have they ability to clear the codes.
I hope this helps.
