Just installed 2 rear OEM replacement air shocks for my 07 Escalade.Everything went perfect..started up rig to back out of shop,,now I have 2 lights on in the dash ABS and traction control..WTF?? What could be causing this??. I hate to see a light on in a dash that doesn't belong there..
Drive around town for a few miles. If the lights don't go out, disconnect the neg cable for 15 to 20 mins as this will reset any codes stored. Had this happen when I changed the brakes on my 2005 EXT. When the vehicle is up in the air and the shocks fully extended, it stored those trouble codes.
everything checked ok and there are no wires unplugged..also unhooked battery for 30 mins and the ABS and traction control lights/warnings are still on
guess I have to get a dealer to hook up computer to tell me whats wrong??
Try give it a drive around for a few miles and then turning it off and starting it back up. Had this happen to me and I didn't replace the rear shocks when the warning messages popped up. After driving around for a while and then turning it off after getting home the message eventually went away.
Automobile(s): None at the moment. Maybe some day an SRX!
Re: New Shock Install now alarms in dash????
Sorry to hear that you haven't been able to get the alarms cleared on your own and that your nearest dealer is so far away, Labrador. If you need additional support as you work with a dealership, GM of Canada is available to you at 1-888-446-2000.

I still think it's the harness above the frame rail, you can't see it, you have to reach up & feel around for the connection, near the upper shock bolts, squeeze & make sure they are tight on both sides
Man I love this site..found problem..Thanks so much Ran-Dom32..found one of the harness connections on the frame rail like you suggested wasn't pushed together properly
My Escalade is alarm /warning light free
