Question about Kicker CVR12 Car Subwoofer
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?
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.
