Question about Kicker CVR12 Car Subwoofer

Air suspension, cadillac

My 'ride control" warning light has been on for 2 months. I have had the car looked at and was told that the motor that powers that air suspension is not working. they said that it would be a costly repair, and that it wasn't dangerous to drive. it seem to be getting worse now and the steering concerns me. do you think i should make the costly repair, or maybe do a "conversion kit" which i have seen advertised and is much cheaper?

    i have a 92 eldorado, w/"service ride control" I found what I think looks like a suspension compressor located underneath in the middle towards the rear of the car, could this be the same type of ride control pump? We could not locate one under the hood, or the front of the car.

    any other possible fix it's? Ours isn't real easy to get to. Thank you

    Please HelP

If you have any mechanical skill at all, you can fix the pump yourself. the electric motor for the compressor is basically a GM blower motor with a little compressor piston attached. usually it is in the engine compartment in front of the fender skirt, down low, right behind and below the headlights on the drivers side. but youre model and year could be located elsewhere. find and remove motor/pump assembly and take the motor apart and replace the motor brushes. that is, if it isn't just a leaky or disconnected air line. as far as obtaining motor brushes, look under electric motors in the A-L yellow pages. those yellow and white combined are worthless. if you can only get motor brushes that are larger than original, they are soft and you can file them down real easy.

I have a 1994 Cadillac DeVille That has the Service ride control warning on the dash, Will this warning keep the Car from passing a NYS inspection?


It shouldn't as ride control only effects the the comfort of the ride and not its safety... but believe me any warning light will trigger a possible failure. Most inspectors really only have rudimentary knowledge of how certain models work and will fail you upon inspection. Probably a bad shock...get it fixed

How Do I Fix Service Ride Control warning on Dash, And what is it?


  • The magnetic ride control system senses speed and oscillation of suspension and adjusts shock dampening for a comfortable ride. If a shock is bad or the suspension sensors are damaged in anyway the system deactivates and does to a default setting, and the warning comes on. Did you hit any real bad potholes? or probably just wear and tear.. You need to have your suspension system checked.. shocks, control arms, alignment, etc.

I have a 1995 cadillac seville that reads service ride control


Generally speaking, the warning light is telling you the air suspension is faulty or one of the ride adjustable struts can't be controlled by the body computer.
You will need to figure out what the problem is to proceed. Cadillac had big problems with the speed sensitive struts and most people disregard the light if that is the problem.

Service stability warning light is on


Thay means that your Stability Control System is malfunctioning. Your vehicle may be equipped with Continuously Variable Road Sensing Suspension (CVRSS) this system controls the ride height (Air Springs) and the stiffness (electronic shocks) of your suspension. Your computer data must be collected and used to help determine the cause of the failure before any repair can begin.

My 98 cadillac rear air suspension will not left the car ?


You may have a bigger problem than you are looking for. Often times with these air systems there are air lines and air bags that dry rot and crack there for causing leaks everywhere. This can burn out your compressor. These problems can be very costly. I replaced the compressor twice before I was told that my lines on the car were no good anymore and the air bags had leaks too. Instead of paying over $1000 to fix the air ride, I went with a non air conversion system from Strutmasters. It was cheaper than fixing the air problem and it it rides great! A lot less headaches with it that is for sure.

Service ride control!


I had all suspension replaced by a cadillac dealer for $1400.00 in Arizona. They told me they would have to run a wire from the back to the front so the service ride control light would not come on all the time. They wanted me to bring the car back in to fix this but I needed to return home. I just hit the reset button everytime I start the car to remove the warning. I don't know if this would help you ...it's just info I have when you change to the new suspension in the rear.
