#4 of 13 Re: Replacement of 1996 Seville SLS struts [eldog]
Mar 06, 2008 (9:13 am)
Your 96 SLS does have a computer controled suspension (the struts have shocks that can be adjusted automatically). They will be expensive to replace. Your Cadillac dealer was making an guess, but the age of your vehicle is such that this is a reasonable guess. These old northstar Cadillacs are not cheap to maintain.
I really don't know what your options are. The Deville forum (which is for FWD) may have people who are more helpful. You may want to consider whether the car is worth keeping.

Some searching on the internet (google) suggests that replacement struts that bypass the computer system are available for about $250 each (or even less). They still need to be installed, so a repair shop should be consulted before ordering parts. The shop should be able to order the parts themselves.

The car is worth keeping if it was purchased.
So tired of this bias against big American cars.

You should probably try posting in our No Start Problems discussion, since this one isn't very active.
However, when you post over there, you will need to provide more information for people to help you - such as what happens when you TRY to start it... tries to turn over, doesn't try to turn over, do dash lights come on or not... anything you can think of to give people some direction.
#13 of 13 service stability system
Jun 25, 2012 (3:08 pm)
2003 Seville sls with 74K miles. when driving service stability system light comes on.If I press on/off it goes out and does not come back on while I am driving, but will if I stop and restart.
It comes on when I am driving, not when I start the car. I do not notice any problem when it comes on. Is this serious, how much will it cost to fix it?
