this is my third deville and ive got a few messages coming up on the digital dash, the first one is "service ride control" i looked and the air shocks arent leaking too bad and the compressor is kicking on and blowing just fine, i heard there was a sensor on the top of the strut that is throwing that message, is there a way i can cap off this sensor or do anything to make this message stop?

and i also have a "check oil level" message usually at start up, i removed the oil pressure switch and tested the pressure and it is perfectly fine because i was thinking maybe the oil pump was going bad but i have fine pressure, is there a float in the oil pan that could maybe be sticky or something from the previous owner using shitty oil? and suggestions at all on either of these would greatly be appreciated pleasee thank u very much

That message has nothing to do with oil pressure. There is an oil level sensor in the pan. I believe it is to the passenger side of the oil filter adapter. Clean the contacts. If that doesn't help then it may need replacing.

I don't know much about the ride control but I have heard others talk about a way to defeat the message by putting some resitors inline.

You don't have to drop the pan to replace the level sensor. It screws into the side of the pan much like a spark plug. Do it when you do an oil change as the sensor is obviously below the oil level.
