Yes, Thanks I did remove and find debris and dirt in the lens! I cleaned it inside and out and the box behind the lens. I did a test drive and the message returned several times on a 50 mile round trip! Tried moving the steering wheel up and down and around also! Rains came so I will continue on with the search for and answer!

which message are you getting? if its service ride control it most likely is the wiring under the dash but you really need to check the trunk for water as moisture in the suspension module can start out that way before it completely shorts out and is toast

ok the front cleaning is needed to make sure your adaptive cruise works properly. I will have to check but I think the 04 had some issues with the traction control due to a bad abs module. I have not had that experience so maybe someone that has will chime in
