I've done some reading, and now trying to troubleshoot my 04 Escalade AWD 6.0.
Was getting SSD (stability system disabled) warning initially, but compressor still pumped up and seemed to work ok. Then I noticed the compressor wasn't coming on anymore, and I got the dreaded SRC message. I also noticed the last couple weeks that the compressor did work, that is was getting louder.
I have tried jumping the wire at the relay next to the fuse box underhood, and the compressor did NOT kick on.
What else should I trouble shoot before just assuming it is a bad compressor.
I also need to figure out what caused the initial SSD message. Will a good Snap On scanner ($8000 one) pull the codes out of the suspension system?
And you're on the right way: get the DTCs from the Suspension Module. Everything else is guesswork. Oh and with a Tech2 you can command the compressor by hand thru the control module. Very nice feature.
But the compressor assembly is very pricy, so I anyway would test it by myself before replacing it. Remove it from the car and give 12V to the motor itself, then you know it for sure.
So the famous exhaust valve issue with the compressor huh? Hopefully reattach the wire, or buy a compressor?
How about the C0455? Got some insight on fixing that issue? Would that be the cause of the "Stability System Disabled" message I assume?
These were the only 2 codes period. Thanks!
The compressor will have to be replaced as I have seen where some folks tried to fix it only to have it mess up again(due to the same thing) I know how you feel I have to replace mine just haven't had the time to do it but I am getting the parts to replace the worn parts on my truck
the only sensor I can think of that relates to the steering is the one in the steering column you might want to talk to a service manager at your local dealer to be sure
I ain't sure how it ties into the Stabilitrac system unless it and the cvrss shares the sensor(very possible) I do know the steering column has to be took apart to replace the sensor(not a easy job)
