I have a 2005 Cadillac STS that displays "Speed Limited to 80mph" Code reads "left rear actuator"...what is the fix for this??


most likely cause is that the actuator ( sensor) for the air ride shocks is telling the car that the suspension is wrong fo rhigher speeds. the "fix" would be to return to the original air-ride shocks and correct any other modifications made. with computerized systems you cannot just make arbitrary changes without re-programing the computer to accept them( a very costly "if available" option

Based on the photo, I would say the air suspension can not maintain the car at the height it is supposed to be. As long as the height is not right, the speed is limited for safety. The computer does not know you changed the wheels.

Can I replace my air ride shocks on the back of my 96 explorer with regular shocks and do away with the air ride? I need new shocks and don't want to invest alot of money on an old car.


Yes, you can just put regular shocks on the back,just make sure you get shocks that have the same length as your original ones and that are from a explorer without air suspension.That way you wont have the back end of the car riding too low or bottoming out.

What is service ride control


Service Ride Control means one or some of your shocks or struts are worn and may need replacing. The price for new ones is not cheap,

If you're asking about the electronic pressure control solenoid, it's on the driver side of the valve body. There are 4 sols on that side, it's the one closest to the rear. It's bigger & heavier than the other 3.
