The tohoe is equipped with a self adjusting air ride suspension powered by a small compressor. if the system fails you will be low riding in the rear. it may just be a faulty sensor but worth checking into.

SOURCE: service ride control

It's time to replace the rear shocks. There expensive like $250.00 and up each and if your not going to be towing, most people replace them with a good set of shocks and not the factor OEM air shock which you have for the auto ride height system. If your going to just buy and good set of normal gas shocks. Pull the fuse to     the auto ride system so the light on the dash is off.
Good luck and hope this helps. The auto ride system was there for towing heavy trailers to keep the ride hight. The rear suspension is actually soft so you have a soft ride and the shock keeps it from bouncing. If your not towing heavy or carring heavy loads, you should be fine with a conventional gas shocks and you may find it better. I found the Monroe Reflex shocks to be more stable then the OEM around corners and highway driving.

SOURCE: SERVICE RIDE CONTROL

Hi. this car is equipped with a air ride system that is very sophisticated. There are four air bag Assembly that are located and attached to each tire axle on your car. each axle has a air ride sensor unit that regulates the air in and out flow during transit. there are air flow lines that run to each tire or suspension assembly as well. these lines are fed threw a compressor system that is located inside the trunk.

When you had your unfortunate accident, the damage on the front driver side has initiated some sort of damage that has damaged the sensor or it has damaged the air bag or sir line assembly. the warning light is a reminder that is instructing you or the owner , to take this car in for this service.

I suspect there has been some sort of damage to the air bag assembly on the affected side of your vehicle.

it may be a sensor or it could be more serious like an damaged air line or bag. The best way to find out is to take it in for the inspection by a qualified service tech.

PLease rate and god bless:)

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

SOURCE: 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

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.
