I got an email from a fellow with a 1993 ETC. An excerpt from his message: CURRENT S021 Left Rear Damper Solenoid Valve Short to Ground/Open This is where the problem is. It's a short or break in the wiring harness. HISTORY S044 Lift or Dive Signal Fault S055 Resistor Module Short to Ground/Open S061 Right Front Position Sensor Fault S063 Right Rear Position Sensor Fault S055 is a mystery to me; the others are probably ride height sensor codes. Since they are intermittent, they are probably loose connectors or worn insulation. You should have come to Caddyinfo before you had the car worked on. The likelihood that the rear shocks were leaking is just about nil. It’s very common for mechanics with brake fluid in an oil can (for lubricating rubber bushings and grommets in the shop, a legitimate use) to squirt some on the shocks and show it to you; it’s happened to me a number of times over the years – and I always say no, look a week later, and the shock is dry. From the CURRENT code, there is a problem in the wiring harness, something you have already figured out. A leaking shock will not throw that code. And, changing the shocks won’t fix that code. Without knowing the part number of the Arnott shocks or looking on their web site, I can't tell whether you downgraded your car by disabling RSS on the rear or not, but so far as I know, Arnott does not make RSS shocks; the only manufacturer that I know of that does is Monroe. At this point, I would suggest that you look over the old wiring harness (apparently the best one) foot by foot and look for damaged insulation, a hinge point that may mean a broken conductor inside a wire, and loose terminals inside connectors. And, get another mechanic, one that is ASE certified. Look for the ASE logo on a certificate on the wall: Check the name and date, and ask who is the guy named, and will be be doing the work on your car (or at least supervising it).
Hello all. My 96 Deville throws the RS0038 code. for the rear ELC. I cannot find the description for the code at this time but I know it has something to do with the compressor. I have run into this cde many times before on other Cadillacs and usually the ELC fuse in the trunk pops and the compressor does not operate. But this one is not happening like that. here is what I have for info. Car rides fine No other codes present Have never gotten a service ride control message Air compressor works fine and exhausts fine rear suspension does not change when vehicle sits for extended period of time. Not quite sure why this code is occuring as suspension seems to be working properly. Only one time I had about 700 lbs in back seat and rear suspension rode low. definately lower than normal. I use the spokes of my rims as reference of ride height. Normal ride height I can see the holes in the spokes at the top of the rims at the wheelwell. Which is all the time. On the ride where it rode low the rear end all you could see was half of the center cap. Yes thats very low. but still rode great. and got decent mileage. I would appreciate any insight on this topic. I plan to purchase a spare compressor to rebuild and install someday. But at this time I am not too worried about the problem. the code has been coming up for awhile and the only reason why I know its there is because I run the codes once in awhile and it is the only code. Whatever is causing this code only seems to be affected by heavy load in the rear end. other than that it rides perfectly normal. thanks all
