I've had the "SERVICE RIDE CONTROL" message on my '96 for quite awhile. The cause is the right rear shock - the damper is shorted - I think the code was RS0028. I tried the 10K resistor yesterday afternoon and is has supressed the message. I took the car on a 1-1/2 mile test run and there was no message. Ususlly, the message pops up before I reach the end of the driveway.

Is it still working

I'm not sure if it is still working - I sold the '96 SLS in the Fall of 2010.  Hopefully it's still working.  Further experimentation on a '97 STS showed a 4700 ohm resistor did the trick but that was an STS, not an STS and the systems are different.

The '97 STS went to the junkyard in early 2017 (at 225,000 miles on the clock) due to a cracked water jacket on the engine block.  My current fleet is a '05 and '04 Deville plus the '93 Fleetwood Brougham that I have owned since it had 15 miles on the odometer.  The Fleetwood Brougham has always been reliable as are the Devilles - probably one of the reasons I've been absent from this discussion board for awhile.
