    Re: Service suspension system

    I feel your pain.... I got my '07 in April & its been one thing after another... & I just spent $600 on a new arnott compressor & rear shocks... I doubt its the relay , its under the hood near the main fuse box, small square box... & I just wasted $50 at napa hoping this was the problem, do a you tube search & there are video's how to trouble shoot the system.. odds are your compressor is shot & so are the air shocks, good luck

    this guy has some good info on how to test your air ride system.. check out his other video's , it shows how to test the relay, hopefully it will save you time & money, read the comments below his video's.. good info. I spent alot of time reading up last week .. everything points back to a bad compressor in my case

    I think I'll just get all the problems fixed then sell it and get into something less problematic , it's a shame I always have loved Cadillac

    I think he is talking about the linkage that moves the sensor for the ride height, its behind the rear wheels,

    I ended up having to change this module as well, found a used on e on ebay for $175, (this is after I changed the compressor, shocks & relay) there was really nothing left... finally everything is functioning properly & no service lights, what next?? lol

    Re: Service suspension system

    Ok i just got around to fixing my suspension problem after going to the gm dealership and spending 300 for them to tell me what the problem was. I ended up replacing the front sensor and air compressor which i got from gmpartsdirect way cheaper than the dealership. Problem fixed no more service suspension system.Total cost around 550 with labour. Another problem I have is going over small bumps and hearing squeaks from front end. Any ideas.
