Do you have air suspension?

The ride control message can be diagnosed using the OBD diagnostics.
OPERATING ON-BOARD DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM
To enter diagnostic mode: Turn ignition "ON."
Depress the "OFF" and "WARMER" buttons on the Climate Control Center (CCC) simultaneously and hold until the segment check appears on the Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC).
TROUBLE CODE DISPLAY
After entering On-Board Diagnostics, a segment check is automatically performed and then any trouble code stored in computer memory will be displayed. Codes may be stored for the Powertrain Control Module (PCM), Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC), Air Conditioning Programer (ACP), Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) Traction Control System (TCS) or Road Sensing Suspension (RSS) systems.
Each trouble code consists of the system abbreviation: (E: Engine), (P: PCM), (I: IPC), (A: ACP), (R: SIR), (T: TCS), (S: RSS), a three digit code identifier, and the letter C or H. All codes for each system are displayed together, in the order of their three digit number (lowest first). The final digit of the code, a "C" or "H" is used to indicate whether the code is Current or History. A "C" means the fault was still present the last time the diagnostic test was run, while "H" means the failure was not present the last time the code was tested for.
If no codes are present for a system, a "NO X CODE" message (with "X" being the system i.E. E, I, A, R, T or S) will be displayed. If the communication line to a component is not operating, a "NO X DATA" message will be displayed, indicating that the IPC could not communicate with that system.

My error was coming from the: S061. Right Front Position Sensor Fault
I have been looking for a wrecked caddy to get a new position sensor. Depending on the body. Each year has slightly different sensors and must be compatible with your year.

I got the same message on my 1993 STS. That is a sensor for a smooth ride. The caddy tech told me that its just extra money for the dealer. He suggested that I disable the sensor.I did and the ride is the same. Have them disconnected. The cost is abour 500 dollars each.
