The system can be disabled, you no longer have active struts available. I would have the system diagnosed first, and if the fault is with an electronic strut, have it disabled. The problem may be that one of the struts is stuck in firm, and the others a soft, or any combination of the aforementioned. You may notice a difference in ride.

Unfortunitly right now I cant afford to take it in, is there a way for me to check what they would to make that determination and also if I went to a pic in pull and got all the parts I need would that work?

You can just disable the light, or leave it be. The procedure to disable the light is somewhat simple if you can locate the module. It is under the carpet, under the drivers seat. The following describes the wire:1991-1993 DeVille with Computer Command Ride (CCR)
Refer to the Service Manual, page 8A-43-0. Cut Circuit 1300 (Dark Green wire) at the CCR module (Pin C15) to disable the indicator lamp. Tape the wires back into the harness to prevent shorting to other components.

This would disable the light, and can be done without any repairs.

The light isnt whats concerning me; I know from what I researched, that its either the struts or the shock system that is or did go out. Are those something I can fix with parts I pick up from pic n pull? And how do I determine what it is exactly that I need to repair? Thank you so much for all the advice! This is an awesome progrm!
