Default Bad CCR or Bad Actuators?

Anybody know how I would go about testing if the CCR wires going into the struts are receiving the signal to adjust when the ride control buttons are pressed?

Reason is, the strut actuators on the drivers side of the car do not function as I can not hear them adjust like the other side and of course the ride sucks at highway speads and over big bumps. Seems to me that because other side of car works fine it could potentially be:

- bad actuators (meaning whole car strut conversion) or;
-The CCR Box (believe it is under drivers seat but not sure) is bad or;
- a coincidence or;
- another electrical problem.

Any help is appreciated. I need to get to bottom of this before winter arrives.

Thanks,
-Jason

How about steering the man to Techinfo, so he can properly diagnose the system?

Are both lights on at the same time? That indicates a fault. Check Techinfo for the procedure.

If a strut is bad, give it up, and use this as a starting point: http://www.williamwren.com/struts/elc.html
