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 have the same problem on my 07 escalade and I was told that the escm need to be replaced and it costs around 500 but I want to get a second opinion b4 I do any repairs. The youtube video is short r there any other videos.

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

It also could be a snapped rear link. They are like 10 bucks and u can put it in urself.

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

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.

Front Shocks? IDK , I'm just happy I've gone a few weeks with everything functioning properly!!!

Sounds like your front struts are needing to be replaced as well. Just went through this entire process with my rear needing to be replaced and then the front struts needing to be replaced. Definitely not cheap but I didn't go through the dealer either.

Well I just finished changing my front and rear shocks with arnott and it was worth it I can feel the ride much smoother. Total cost around 900. My next project is my brakes which are being done next week with max performance rotors. After that will be the tires next summer. I will keep u posted how that comes out.
