Tell your service man that he his full of it. You need to check your rear shocks they have wires comeing out the top see if they are all have good connections they may have to be replaced they are very hard to find.

Air ride on my 99 cad. devill when people in back seat will bottom out rides to low


If you have Air shocks in the back they are worn out

Your going to get that low ride when people sit in the
back even with new rear shocks & a small adjustment to
the level control to raise the rear

You need to air your tires to the max on tire sidewall

I no longer hear my ride control air compressor do it's self test when I start the car. It also doesn't seem to level the car when trunk is loaded. I changed the ECR relay under the rar seat, but...


If you change the position of the height sensor on the front of rear, the aircompressor should kick on.

I have a 1996 Lincoln Mark VIII that has a fuse in the trunk labeled RSS (beside the on off switch) and if that blows the entire air ride system stops working. But I can't remember whether the self test was gone through or not.

Unfortunately, since the car is not doing a self test when you start the car or getting an error message it sounds more like the computer for your DeVille.

What would cause the rear end of my 1996 cadillac deville to drift back and forth


Something is broken or badly worn. There's a lot of potential causes so you'll need to get someone to look and make a proper diagnosis, but most commonly it will be due to worn or perished suspension bushings. If so, the suspension will need to be dismantled in order to fit new ones.

It can also be due to corrosion where the suspension mounts to the bodyshell or to the chassis, but this is all useless conjecture until you get someone to take a look ASAP. The fault won't fix itself, and will only get more expensive as it over-stresses other parts like springs, dampers, wheel bearings, tyres and it can result in unsafe handling and braking instability.

I had the suspension on my 1996 Cadillac DeVille converted from air to coils to the tune of $1686.95 and used bushings for $398. I asked them to stop my car from bouncing/sliding when I hit bumps, car...


ALL YOU NEED NEW AIR SHOCKS. THAT WHY CAR IS BOUNCING.IF YOUR AIR RIDE CONTROL LIGHT ON YOU HAVE PROBLEM IN THE ROAD SENSING SUSPENSION CONTROL OR THE AIR COMPRESSOR NOT WORKING. YOU PAID THEM TO FIX CAR IF THEY CANT. GET MONEY BACK TAKE CAR TO DEALERSHIP. VECHICLES LIKE CADILLACS MERCEDES BMW JAGUAR VOLKSWAGON AND VOLVO THESE ARE SPECIAL CARS NOT EVERY BODY CAR SERVICE OR WORK ON THEM. THEY ARE EXPENSIVE HAVE HI TECH PCM ELECTRONIC CONTROL SYSTEMS ON BOARD.

Rear Suspension on 1996 Cadillac Deville


you may want to buy regular heavy duty shocks and put on the car to raise the back up high enough to do what you are trying to do.
