    Re: Dash says Service RIDE SYSTEM

    Your car has a built-in trouble code reader/scanner. Study the OBD-II (OBD-2) section of the sticky post ^^^ "How to pull codes". Get any codes stored in the system and whether each is Current or History. Write it all down and go back to the sticky to open the link with "obd2" in the address - that takes you to a Master Index of all P,B,C, and U codes. Write down the definitions of any codes found and post it all here. Your CVRSS/RSS faults will set C codes..............

    your struts and shocks are electronically controlled - one or more have failed -

    check for Diagnostic Trouble Codes -

    if you don't know how - go here and read the ENTIRE post -

    http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...odes-dtcs.html

    if you have any codes - post them here -
    ALONG WITH THEIR DEFINITIONS -

    C1787 - Damper Control Relay Short to GND

    This is the code that I got. Can anyone elaborate?

    Try swapping or replacing the damper relay in the under seat fuse box.

    It's under the rear seat bottom, drivers side. Grab the front edge of the seat bottom, and pull straight up, do this on both sides.

    Open the trunk. Look into the trunk. At the front of the trunk, there's the wall between the trunk and the rear seat. This is a removeable panel. Reach up on the roof of the trunk, and you will feel 4 fasteners along the edge of the roof. Release these to remove the panel. Once you've removed the panel, the fuse block is on the bottom left of the front trunk wall.
