it is a indication that the electronic strut is failing. I would recomend a standard suspension conversion kit from www.strutmasters.com

I looked at the link that you sent me and put in Cadillac STS 2001 - there were matches. Then I put in Cadillac Seville 2001 and got multiple matches. The car is a Cadillac Seville STS 2001 so I'm confused. I am a 56-year old woman and I'm trying not to get taken by a dealership on what is wrong and how much it should cost. How should I look at this? Is it a 2001 STS or a 2001 Seville??
