The vehicle needs to be put on a scanner and checked. This system is too complex to check once you have checked the fuses are replaced or OK. Do your best to make a friend at the dealership and see if a tech is willing to give it a quick scan. The trouble codes will then point you to the problem. Only a dealer scanner will work. With the trouble code / problem diagnosis (i.e.C0660 exhaust valve circuit malfunction) we can help further.

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.

Got a service ride message on my dashboard message--all my manual says is that I need to get my suspension looked at--any suggestions on what I can do to fix this myself?


nope, need to have the air suspension module computer checked for truble codes. Code readers at auto part stores only do generic engine and transmission codes. You would have to go to the dealership or a reputable repair shop for this level of checks.

Service ride and service stability what does that mean?


this means that you have a fault with your stability control system. the stability control is designed to prevent a rollover it detects body roll when you are driving the ride control is the air suspension sytem this keeps ride hieght the same based on how wieght is in the vehicle. check the links that connect the switches to the suspension you may have one dissconnected (these links wear out over time you night have to replace them) there is one on each wheel postion if you need anything else let me know

2003 GMC Yukon XL Denali Service Ride control info


leaking suspension air bags is the most common cause, but the system can be tested for trouble codes, I suggest u do so, only the dealer can do this, but guessing about what the problem is can get very expensive very fast.

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

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

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.
