Today, more and more cars and trucks are equipped with air suspension systems which provide us with a more comfortable ride, better handling and superior weight management, especially if we drive an SUV or truck.
If your vehicle is equipped with an air suspension system and you have noticed:
- Sagging in the front or rear end
- When you first your car in the morning, you need to wait for the suspension to lift
- Hear your compressor constantly buzzing
- Air suspension warning light is illuminated on the dashboard
Then you need to address these issues immediately in order to prevent more serious and costly damage.
Causes of Air Suspension Issues
The air suspension warning light can be activated for a variety of reasons. It could be that the switch that turns on the air suspension is “OFF.” It could also be illuminated if the compressor isn’t working properly to provide the right amount of air to the airbags. Also, it may be due to a leak in one of the airbags which will result in a lower ride height. However, before any repairs are undertaken, your height sensors should be checked. It is possible that the height sensors can malfunction and give your vehicle’s computer a false reading which can result in the warning light being illuminated.
What You Should Do If Your Air Suspension Warning Light Is Activated
Vehicle manufacturers like VW advise their customers to take immediate action since your vehicle’s handling, stability, and ground clearance may be affected. They recommend that you drive carefully and slowly to an authorized repair shop to have the system examined.
At Norlang Auto, we have highly trained and experienced technicians, as well as the proper equipment to diagnose, repair or replace your air suspension system. When this warning light comes on, the computer saves a code to identify any issues that have been detected. We have the tools to identify the code and ensure the correct repairs are done and done right the first time.
