Service ride control message
Does anyone know what actually trips the code to make the Service Ride Control appear?.
and could you advise on replacement struts as these units are now discontinued by GM. Thank you, John S.

Re: Service ride control message
Use the proper year group instructions in the sticky post just above this thread (How to pull codes) to get any diagnostic codes from your car's built-in scanner/reader. Write down all codes found, return to the sticky to get to the link to code definitions. Write it all down and post it all here - as well as whether each code is Current or History.
You might want to read all the sticky posts in any forum of interest - they're there because they're timeless ........
Struts in front, shocks in back - and those shocks incorporate an air bladder for rear height control - the air bladders are NOT "air ride" - they're height control.

Several things can cause the message, you'll have to pull your codes. Go to the top of the FWD Deville/Fleetwood page, and read the "sticky" thread on how to pull codes. List any codes you find, AND THEIR DEFINITIONS, here (there's a link within the description with code definitions). Being a '96, your codes may be a combination of OBD I and OBD II codes.
Oops, sub beat me.
