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!!
