I know this subject has been discussed in lots of post and I'm sorry to bring it up again, but I can't find the answer I'm looking for. Two years ago, I replaced my shocks with the Billstein Shocks and the Casper simulators. The problem of leaky shocks went away and so did the 80MPH message. However, I still got and still do get the Service Ride Control message. A touch of the reset button turns off the message. But it does not stay off. I have seen several adds on the internet of a new simulator that shuts down the Service Ride Control message for good.

Today I contacted Casper and asked if they had a better fix now. They said the My mechanic may have made an error in installing the simulators because the simulators I bought, if installed correctly, would permanently shut off the message. It seems that I have read several messages on the forum stating that the Service Ride Control message returns occasionally after they had installed the Casper Simulators.

If you have this recurring problem, please respond to this post. If only a few people have this problem maybe my installation is faulty. If a number of you guys have the problem maybe there is a problem on the use of the Casper Simulators on XLR's but not on Corvettes. Thanks

Never had an issue with them. I would check the connections and make sure the are clean and tight. Thevrears have to be zip tied together at the plug. Also your suspension module may be going bad as these only work with a working module. Thebother thing that i suspect is your brake module. 04/05 have the signal go thru the abs and yaw sensor. A tech two would isolate the problem .being as you can turn it off i would think connection at the suspension module, connectors at the sims or the abs failure that is a known issue
