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,

Ride control is related to the following:

Inspection Shock absorbers dampen the compression and rebound cycles of the springs. If a vehicle is not equipped with shock absorbers, the up and down motion would continue making the vehicle hard to control.
Shock absorbers do not support the ride height of the vehicle. Ride height is controlled by the springs, and by the diameter of the rim and tire. Worn shock absorbers will affect handling. If the front of the vehicle is rising or falling excessively, the "footprint" of the tires change on the pavement and steering is severely affected.
To test the compression and rebound of a shock absorber push down on the vehicle (over each tire) and release. Observe the motion of the body as it is released. In most cases, it will come up beyond it original rest position, dip back below and settle quickly to rest. This shows that the shock absorber is dampening the spring action. Excessive extension or failure to return to rest within two to three cycles is a sign of poor function. Oil-filled shock absorbers may have a light film of oil around the seal resulting from normal breathing and air exchange. This should not be taken as a sign of failure however any sign of thick or running oil indicates failure. Gas filled shocks may also show some film at the shaft; if the gas has leaked out, the shock will have almost no resistance to motion.
When fluid is seeping out of the shock absorber, it’s time to replace it what is service ride control - tcca8p73.jpg

Never replace only one shock absorber. Always replace shocks in pairs -- front or rear--or replace all of the shock absorbers to equal the dampening effect throughout the entire vehicle.

    This deals with the RSS system, most likley one of the shocks has a bad position sensor. these shocks are no longer available. there is a cadillac bulletin to eliminate the sys and make the message go away

Service ride control


Hi there:The service ride control light being on is letting you know the system has detected a fault.This can be caused by a defective esc module or a bad compressor. need to have codes pulled out of the electronic suspension control module.


Need some specific dealer tools in order to reset it or solve it.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

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
