I recently replaced all four shocks/struts with new ones from Arnott. The message "Service Ride Control" still comes up every time I start my car and I know the reason could be non-working solenoids, sensors etc. But as I replaced the shocks and the old suspension system is no longer operational, I like to get rid of that annoying message. I searched the whole net for an answer. Could anyone help me? How can I bypass and permanently delete "Service Ride Control" on a Cadillac Seville STS 1994? Thanks a lot in advance! Best regards.

There is no way to recover OBD codes once you have cleared them, other than to wait for the car's modules to detect the same error again. That's not a bad thing because the car is pretty quick to flag a problem when it occurs. You didn't say what the problem is that caused you to run the codes, if any, but the next time it happens, any relevant codes will be there again. The next time you drive the car, then, after you park but before you turn off the key, run the codes again. That way, any codes that were thrown during the drive will be flagged as CURRENT, and anything that was detected as a problem but then checked OK will be flagged as HISTORY. Once you turn off the key, all the codes go to HISTORY.
I don't know enough about the 1988 computers to deal with this one. My best guess is that some of the codes are CURRENT and that the CURRENT codes should be dealt with before the codes can be finally cleared. Anyone?
