There is some kind of malfunction in the Autoride system which is sending you the error code. I have successfully removed the Autoride from my Suburban. If you have any questions, let me know and I will post the threads for you.greetings all
i have a 2000 chevy suburban 2500 with about 81000 miles and the service ride control light has just come an and will not go off. any ideas, thanks in advance.
yes. please help! I need to remove this option. Thanks
Have an '02 Tahoe with this and I also have "service ride control" message. What the garage told me is that the rear shocks have the "auto ride" sensors in them. To replace these sensors, you have to replace the whole shock at about $500 each. Now there may be some other issue that can give you this message but with my case, it is the sensors in the shocks that are bad. It's 7 years old with 115,000+ on it so when I do need to replace the shocks, I will probabaly go with some other shock instead of spending the $1000. Only other suggestion is, if it is your shocks, try a junk yard to see what the cost is to replace them that way.
That's where they told me the problem area was. Didn't get into specifics. I've been running this way for a number of years. Sometimes during the winter months, the error message is not displayed. I'm only repeating what my garage told me. Not an issue with me or my ride. Annoying? yes, but I'll live with it until the time come to replace the shocks. Front and/or rear. Oh, buy the way, that $500 per shock was factory GM parts so that is why the sticker shock.
I guess the only problem with junk yards is you don't really know how the previous owner treated the truck but I do agree that once these things are fixed your ride should improve immensely.I got my info from a Chevy garage so I figured what they told me was correct. Soon as I heard the $$$$, I turned a deaf ear 'cause there was no way I was dropping that kind of coin for shocks. I figured I'll be looking aroung the junk yards when the time comes. So far no issues with ride but I'm sure if I got them replaced, I'd feel a big difference.
Here you go. All 3 are basically similar. If you have any questions, let me know.
Hey man great job on getting rid of the autoride. I have an 2001 Suburban 2500 with the 8.1L and i just finished putting $800 into the autoride to get new rear sensors less than two months ago and the "service ride control" just came back on. the truck only has 42,000 miles on it and i can't afford to keep putting money into the system so i can't wait to make the swap. I only have one question and i know its a stupid one but im just double checking; I'm not sure what engine ur Burban has but will it make any difference since mine has 8.1 or can i just send out the BCM to get the codes removed and unhook the SCM?
