Question about 2002 Isuzu Axiom

Open Question

Rough Ride of 2002 Isuzu Axiom

Our '02 Axiom has the electronic suspension of Sport Mode or Highway mode. One mode is bouncy and the other is stiff, either way, it makes for a stiff neck after a while. Does anyone know if there is a aftermarket shock that can replace the OEM electronic version with a more comfortable ride? I also have a '99 Trooper and the ride is a dream! Don't know why they made it so different! Can I use non-electronic shocks on this vehicle, say a Trooper shock?

    I have the same complaint. The ride in the 02' Axiom is bad. Sport suspension is soo stiff and feels like you are off roading on smooth streets, and the regular suspension is soo bouncy every bum feels like a speed bump. Can anybody help with this suspension problem?

SOURCE: suspension bouncy

i am not familiar with the mercedes suspension but your problem is caused by bad shocks .. not sure if they are seperate from the hydraulic system .. if they are then thats what you need .. if the shocks are part of the hydraulic system (that would be some neat engineering) .. then there is likely a valve that acts like a shock absorber in that system .. it sounds like the suspension system is working good .. its just the shock absorber system that is causing the trouble ..

The dashborad says suspension fault


Problems with the air suspension seem to be less frequent with the Sport than in previous Range Rover models, but they still do occur. One owner reports "Whenever my RRS is lowered to "access" level a suspension system fault message apprears.". Another reports " Had the RRS back less than 2 hours and another "suspension fault." Also kept receiving messages that the vehicle is raising slowly and vehicle will raise when system cools. Couldn't even drive because it wouldn't raise out of access mode. Anyway, back to the dealer. Picked the RRS up again today-dealer said the EAS compressor was faulty and replaced it. So far everything is ok." Overall, most of the problems seem to be related to bad suspension height sensors or bad compressors. Angus Wade of the Czech Republic had his suspension light come on when in Germany; it started yellow and then red, then disappeared when he stopped and restarted the engine -- and has not happened since. His dealer said they have seen this a bit.

Weak Compressor: An official Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) LS-204-004 addresses "ELECTRONIC AIR SUSPENSION (EAS) WARNING MESSAGE AND LAMP ILLUMINATION". This deals with the warning message "Suspension Fault - Normal Height Only" message appearing with the Air Suspension Warning Lamp on. Computer diagnosis shows pressure increasing too slowly or unable to pressurize, with no air leaks. The usual problem is the compressor exhaust valve sticking, causing an internal air leak when the compressor is active. The bulletin recommends renewing the air compressor (RQG500090 is the latest specification air compressor with a stronger exhaust valve return spring)and installing and updating the air suspension control module software using WDS disc 13 or later.

Suspension Fault Message (random): One owner reported getting random suspension fault messages on his brand new RR Sport purchased in June 2006, well after the fix was in for the weak compressor. His suspension Fault message and Suspension Warning Light (Amber) came on after 5 days of ownership. He stopped and restarted the car, which caused the light and message to disappear, but they came on again after 5 minutes. Later the same day, the warnings disappeared again.

I have heard that on 2006 models, EAS fault messages can be caused by an internal leak in the Air Suspension compressor exhaust valve. The fix is said to be replacing the compressor updating the software.

Hope helps.

I would check your tire pressure, if your running 60 psi it's going to be a bumpy ride, lower the air pressure to 35 psi and see if it makes a differance, does the truck move up and down when you jump on the bumpers or is it stiff ?

What is the function of the button near the auto transmission gear with writing c and s


It stands for "Sport" and Comfort", it changes the way the transmission shifts. Read a more detailed description below.

In C, the transmission starts from a stop in 2nd gear unless the kick down switch is activated (pedal to floor from standing start). The transmission will shift at lower RPM's. This is used for everyday driving. The S mode will cause the transmission to start in 1st gear regardless of pedal position and shift at higher rpm. This button has NO effect on suspension, Mercedes have separate suspension control switches.
If this helped please rate my help.

Whats the green `S`warning light surronded by a cog mean on the dash?


The Green "S" light on the dash is for sport mode. This can be turned on by the mode switch by the gear selector. If your vehicle is equipped with ACE (Active cornering Enhancement) Sport mode will help stiffen the suspension with hydraulic fluid. Hope this helps.

Best of luck

Infiniti FX 35 stiff ride


The FX is a bouncy car, but it's necessary to accommodate it's good performance. You can try some aftermarket air shocks, or check into different tires. That should help.
