the performance should be called normal and the normal should be called economy

But they just don't sound as cool as "Performance" and "Normal." It'* almost a "false sense" of security.

Both of my ride buttons are lit up and when I press Performance Shift or Normal Shift nothing changes and neither of the lights come on. The only thing that seems to work is the T/C button. DO I need a new pod? How is this currently affecting the suspension and transmission?

there is a problem with your CCR. The perfromance and normal shift is only noticible at WOT. One of your lights could have burnt out

CCR? Is that the computer ride deal? Should I just replace the pod? And neither of the shift lights come on at any time. What else could it be?

Yes the CCR is the Computer ride. IF both lights are on you have a problem with that system. you can get rear air struts (if that is the problem) the keep you ELC but NOT your CCR, the CCR is a bad system to begin with

A test for your shift buttons. Put the car in Normal shift. and do a WOT run pay attention where the car shifts....... then put the car in Performance and do anothe WOT run and pay attention to where the car shifts. The normal should shift 1000 RPM'* lower than it did in Performance

For the ride controls...the compressor is still coming on every now and then and I have had no problems with the bags or anything suspension-wise, so currently I am not really concerned about it. I just wish I had heat but I have an actuator/controller problem too. As for shift programming that works ok, just no lights.
