I know about that. It's too expensive. I have the shocks bypassed already with resistors and there's no code for them. Only code I have is for exhaust on compressor. There's a blue and white wire that can be bypassed, I just need the correct reisistance
Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 11 months ago.
Ok im not sure about doing it that way we just install that module. Im going to opt out and maybe someone else can help. Thanks.

Hi there. Different expert here.Locate the wires going to exhaust valve on top of the air compressor. Cut the White and the Blue wires and splice in a 25 Watt 3.9 Ohm resistor. That should take care of the "Service Air Ride" message on the cluster.Best Regards.

I've tried that already it didn't take care of it
Expert:  Juan Crespo replied 11 months ago.
If that didn't do it, then there is another issue that's triggering the warning message. Do you have access to a scan tool capable of communicating with the system?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Yes

Great! What does it say the issue is? What parameters are out of whack?
