Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum Discussion, Problem with 2000 STS RSS c0579 in Past Cadillac Vehicle Discussion; Front struts have been replaced with arnott struts this code just came on a few days ago ?...
so does that mean the sensor on the left front one is bad ? I would think i can get a resistor to go in there since the fronts are arnott.
Your code (C0579) is not a sensor. The code is telling you that the circuit to the strut solenoid coil is open. Since your Arnott struts do not have a solenoid, there was some value of resistance placed in the solenoid wiring (when the Arnott struts were installed) that would mimic the inductive reactance of the solenoid coil.
That Arnott resistance has failed or become disconnected or something.
And yes, you can mimic the original strut solenoid coil inductive reactance with a 4.7K Ohm resistor; Radio shack item #217-1124.
