(Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
What question did you have about this? Did you want to know possible causes?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Possible causes and Advice On what to do thank you
I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
this is caused by a failure in the self leveling suspension system
this can be triggered by a fault with the control unit, the level sensor or the air compressor (or the air compressor's power supply)
if you have not, try to start the car and see if the re-levels
if not, the only next step is to have the fault logs read from the self leveling suspension and proper test plans run to determine the underlying trigger of the issue
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
