Default Ride Control

Both of the lights on my ride select are on i read somewhere that means a strut has failed is this true?

on a quick side note what would cause the lumber control to stop working the upper 2/3 of the seat adjust works fine)

I'm sorry I have no knowledge of anything with the seats.

For you CCR, check the TechInfo article here: http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/techinfo/?article=17

I would start by checking the motors for them I guess. Check wiring, the relays.

I'm thinking their motors might be burned out or something.

Lumbar and side bolsters are air. If some of them work, the compressor works.

Is it the same fault on both seats? If not, it'* not the switch. Could be a problem in the 'black box' mounted to the underside of your driver'* seat, or a valve/leak for that particular function.

I never knew that they were air. But I'm assuming the fault would prolly be on both sides?

Not the way he described it. If ANY of the lumbar or side bolsters work, the compressor under the passenger seat is good.
