    93 seville 4.6l--how do you disable service ride control?!!!

    93 sts w/ 4.6l. strutmaster passive struts.. I purchased this car awhile back- and the dic flashes the "Service Ride Control" and I've had enough!!

    It has strustmaster "passive" struts in it...I've been searching for weeks and can't find a detailed fix for the annoying "service ride control 84" on the DIC..

    the guy I purchased the car from told me he had the struts installed at his local mechanic- but the idiot mechanic never followed the instructions to disable the code on the dash.-- the harness's in each wheel well are just hanging there...(I talked to Strutmasters, but they won't help me cause I'm not the "purchaser" of the struts)

    .. I've been searching for weeks and can't find a definite fix for this.. I;m assuming a resister would go inline to the harness at each corner to "fool" the computer.. but I need a little more guidance... I did find a "fix" from a member, but he talks about going in through the trunk, and wiring through to a relay under the hood, and hooking up resisters in the trunk etc etc... he talked about 1.5 to 3 ohm.. etc etc... This sounds like it could be just done at each corner instead.

    Can I just hook up resisters to the harness's on each corner with 2 ohm (5 watt) to replicate the factory suspension??

    anyone out there that can help?

    Thanks a ton!!

    That's dumbass that Strutmasters won't help you out. You'd at least think they'd offer to sell you a bypass kit. I've seen it posted here and IIRC you can just add resistors at the corners. Sorry I can't be much more help - but if you keep searching I think the answer is here somewhere. N*Caddy knows a lot about your gen STS, maybe he'll chime in.

    Hi... I had the same problem on my '92. I bought a relay kit off eBay and it worked like a charm. It's $85 plus shipping if you are interested. The page says 86 through 92, but the directions show up through 93. Might be worth a shot. Here is a direct link to the sellers webpage. Scroll down to find the relay kit. http://www.suncoreindustries.com/eng...uspension.html Good Luck!
