SOURCE: 2003 Yukon Denali has Service ride Control Warning..wat to do?

Hi Jose:
The first place to start is to have Ride Control Module scanned for trouble codes, this requires a high end scan tool. Most common problem is the air compressor in the rear or a height sensor. Here is how the system works.

Automatic Level Control Description and Operation
The RTD system is bi-state real time damping system. The Suspension Control module controls the suspension damper solenoids and suspension position sensors, along with parts of the automatic level control (ALC) system and electronic variable orifice (EVO) power steering system.

The Automatic Level Control system consists of the following:
• Suspension Control Module
• Compressor/Leveling Module
- Air Pressure Sensor
- Exhaust Solenoid
• Compressor Motor Relay

The objective of the Automatic Level Control System is to provide constant ride height at all load conditions. The Suspension Control module monitors body-to-wheel height, and vehicle speed.

The Suspension Control module will use the rear body-to-wheel displacements and vehicle speed inputs to keep the rear trim height of the vehicle at its desired level.

The electronic suspension control (ESC) system is bi-state real time damping system. The ESC module controls the suspension damper solenoids and suspension position sensors, along with parts of the automatic level control (ALC) system, if 1500 series.

The ESC system consists of the following:
• The ESC module
• The compressor/leveling module, if 1500 series
- The air pressure sensor, if 1500 series
- The exhaust solenoid, if 1500 series
• The compressor motor relay, if 1500 series
• The steering handwheel speed/position sensor
• The suspension damper solenoids
• The suspension position sensors

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, and have a nice day.

Where is the air compressor for the ride control on 06 gmc denail


Ride control compressors burn up because of leaking air line or shocks. Replacing compressor won't last long if you have a leak. Most of these units are mounted under floor near rear axle.

My 2001 yukon denali is saying serevice ride control what does that mean?


Seems like a common problem with these trucks. I thought I was the only one. I just posted this comment for someone who has a 2003.....I'm not an expert and not sure how widespread the warning message can be, but in my personal case: I have a 2001 Yukon Denali.....I have the same problem and have for many months. I took it in a few times and the GMC Dealership finally told me that It's the ride air bags. In my case they are leaking. Its not the same safety airbags in the front dash to prevent injury...but these models have air bags under the truck that automatically adjust to level when weight shift...you might hear the occasional sound coming from the back while driving or when more people are in your Denali. To me it sounds like a power tool. The Service tech told me it's not harful nor will it damage anything, but it costs about $2000 to fix, because they have to replace the whole thing. He said you may notice the sound coming on from the airbags more often because of this..because the system is working harder to adjust the weight due to the leak/loss in air. So occasionally for about a year...the light comes on....but it has done nothing else.

I hope this helps.

The fuse is called RTD 30 amp under the hoodfuse box. That is for the Air Compressor.

Parts.com has the best price for:

Location of fuse box/panel for 2004 yukon denali xl


There are 2 fuse panels in the Denali.
One is a panel on the drivers side, its on the dash but facing the door.

The ohter is under the dash and above the pedals, this one is much tougher to access.

Your Owner's Manual should tell you where the fuses are that you need to access.
