I was having NO problems with my 1995 Deville Sedan until a mechanic in our shop lifted the front end off the ground in order to drain motor oil. As soon as the car was put back on the ground the "service ride control" message started. Any ideas what would have caused this
It usually means your struts are going out, and passive struts are usually put in to save about $1200.
How many miles??
Pull your codes and see what is causing your message. Do a search for obd1 codes and how to check them.
Ive always hated how they dangle your vehicle like that, not really their fault if it wrecks something. I just dont agree with it.
My local mechanic uses a push stick on the brake pedal while doing aligment and he got busy and my car was left for about 3 hours. Totally drained my battery by leaving the brake pedal depressed. Now that did piss me off, your battery can only take so many full drains in its lifetime.
what are the pros and cons of passive struts, and which ones do people usually recomend to get , because i went to my pep boys and the passive monroe struts for the rear are 59.99 each and 120.00 for the electronic ones..
