How to Reset Service Suspension System Message

Introduction

The "Service Suspension System" message is a serious warning from your car that there is something wrong with the suspension system. The suspension system keeps your vehicle's tires in contact with the road, so when it's not working properly, it can be dangerous for you and other drivers on the road. Luckily, this message can be reset in just 5 minutes or less by performing a scan of the system for errors. This article will walk you through how to perform a scan of your vehicle's suspension system so that you can reset this important warning message!

The "Service Suspension System" message can be reset by scanning the system for errors.

To reset this service suspension system message, you need to scan the system for errors. This will take about 5 minutes and can be performed automatically once you've come to a stop at about 30 mph.

After you have parked your car and turned off all accessories, push the brake pedal down halfway and hold it there for 3 seconds. Then release the brake pedal completely until it reaches its stopping point before releasing it again.

In order to scan the system, the car needs to be driven over 30 mph and come to a stop.

In order to scan the system, the car needs to be driven over 30 mph and come to a stop.

Turn off your car. This is not just for safety reasons, but it will also keep the computer from resetting before it's ready.

Start driving again at around 25 mph until you reach 30-35 mph, then come to a complete stop again. The speedometer will display "SCAN" while it's scanning. You may also see "CHECK ENGINE SOON" on some vehicles instead of "SCAN." After about 10 seconds or so has passed (depending on how long it takes the vehicle signal processing unit) you should see an alert pop up telling you what error code was detected by the onboard computers (OBD II).

The scan will take about 5 minutes.

The scan will take about 5 minutes, and you will likely not have to stop driving. The process is a self-diagnostic that can be done while driving. This scan should reset the Service Suspension Message and allow your vehicle to pass inspection.

The scan should start automatically after you have come to a stop at about 30 mph. If it does not, proceed as follows.

Press the scan button. If you are in a state where the system is not yet activated, the scan should start automatically after you have come to a stop at about 30 mph. If it does not, proceed as follows:

Press and hold the scan button for 10-15 seconds until all of the warning lights on your instrument panel flash simultaneously (in approximately 1 second intervals). Then release the scan button. All of these actions must be completed within 20 seconds or they will need to be repeated. When these steps are successfully completed, all of your warning lights will flash multiple times and then return to normal operation

Start the car.

  • Start the car.

  • Turn the key in the ignition.

  • Make sure that the engine starts, and then makes sure it doesn't stop running until this process is complete. If it does, you will need to start over again from step 1.

Turn on the engine and make sure that it doesn't stop running until this process is complete.

To reset the service suspension system message, you'll need to turn on your engine. Once it's running and making sure that it doesn't stop, press and hold the "Reset" button until the SRS light (usually located in your instrument cluster) begins flashing rapidly. This is a good indication that the service suspension system message has been successfully reset.

The process will take approximately ten seconds to complete after holding down the "Reset" button until all three lights are off or blinking slowly (no longer than 20 seconds). If none of these happen within 20 seconds, repeat from step one again until successful.

Hit the trip meter reset button on your dash until "Trip B" appears on the display.

The trip meter reset button is located on the dash. Using a screwdriver, gently push it in and hold it down for 5 seconds. When you let go of the button, "Trip B" should be displayed on your radio's display screen. If this does not happen, try again until you see "Trip B".

If you cannot get to that point, then something has gone wrong and you will have to start over again from step 1 above (disconnecting battery cables).

You can reset your vehicle's suspension system using these easy steps.
