Eas system bouncing

By bouncing, do you mean that system is raising and lowering the vehicle or do you mean you feel like you are driving a clown car through a boulder field? If the first, you have a height position sensor(s) that is failing or failed. If the second symptom, your system has de-pressurized (which can be caused by a number of things) and you are bouncing on the "bump-stops". These are pushing mounted on your axle top that prevent the vehicle from dropping clear to the ground. Happy to provide more suggestions if you would like to post more info. In any event, if the orange row of lights on your dash panel EAS switch begin flashing this is the FAULT mode and you need to stop and park vehicle asap if you do not and you continue to drive the vehicle you will eventually go into HARD FAULT mode. This is indicated by your dash message center reading "SLOW 35MPH MAX" and you do not want this to happen. The hard fault takes you to a BeCM (rover's brain) state that requires special software, electronic tools and know how, and sometimes alot of patience to cure OR usually about and hour of shop time at your "TESTBOOK" equipped LAND ROVER dealership service department to correct. Good luck.

I wanted to ask about the eas on my range im getting a bes fault nd i also have a right door open sign the bump stops ae terrible plz help

A number of issues can lead to an EAS fault. I will assume that you have escalated into a HARD FAULT most commonly signified by the "slow 35 mph" message on your dash. A HARD FAULT is not easily reset without the proprietary Rave diagnostic system your dealer uses. Without more details to zero in I could go on for pages with possible causes and corrections. If you are planning to chase this down yourself start by searching the web for RSW solutions and download their free (donate if you can, these guys are saints as far as I'm concerned for making this available) EAS software and follow the instructions to diagnose without a lot of tail chasing. It all starts with a leak and graduates to compressor failure. Sort this one out asap. Good luck, repost your findings/specifics for additional info and EAS repair tips.

I bought a 2000 range rover already converted to coil springs and shocks, now I have an eas fault constantly on the dash, how do I get rid of the eas system in the computer?

For many repair operations you don't want the suspension to be adjusting itself up and down while you work on the vehicle. Classic air sprung models have a disable switch under the seat, but this is lacking on the 4.0/4.6. On these models, the following options are available for disabling the system:
1. Leaving a door or the tailgate open effectively freezes the suspension
2. Unplug the air suspension delay timer, a small black box that looks like a large relay under the drivers seat.

Air suspension inactive

The EAS system can only be entered by using Land Rover T4 testbook , at an official dealer. There , they can check what is happening with the EAS system and then offer you a quote on how much it would cost to repair. SIT DOWN when they tell you the cost !!!
From day one, when Land rover fitted EAS systems to their cars, back in the e 80"s, they were useless, always causing problems, and very expensive to repair, but they continued to fit them to this day. If you are going to keep the car, i would strongly recommend that you have fitted a conversion kit, which consists of springs, mounting brackets etc and an electronic unit that switches off the existing system , so you dont have warning lamps illuminating, so then the suspension becomes conventional spring and shock absorber, The ride is just as good, more reliable , no electronics to play up etc. Call your local independant land rover specialist for a quote. It really is worth considering. I have converted many Range Rovers without any problem and very satisfied customers. cust Hope this helps

Air bag suspension is not working on 2002 land rover. Dropped to bump stops and the EAS light is on the message center reads 35mph max speed.

Your compressor is not working.Its placed under the step,you can drop it quite easy.check the power going to the compressor.Check the fuses and relays.but its quite common for the copressors to fail.Good luck

How do I re boot my range rover suspension. The mechanics lifted the vehicle on a hoist to do some maintenance and when they set it down they could not get it to lift. The vehicle remains flat with the...

hi, this is due to a couple of things. 1 is this a p36 or p38.
things like the door sensors will prevent this from lifting, its to stop it crushing your leg when foot is out.
more than likely there are 2 hieght correctors.
depends on the model. i see these where leg pops out, i get them in where a air bag has popped off, loosing all your air.
when its a p38 and lifted, if u dont push the button on the dash the computer gets confused and wont let it lift, this then needs a reset. i have lifted a lot of range rovers and the p38 is the worst, i use a 2 post lift, u got to push button on dash, this tells it its getting jacked up or lifted. i have forgot to push it a couple of times, a air bag drops off, u need tough thumbs to push it on.
listen to see if the compressor is running when running.
you must open bonnet start engine then shut door making sure all doors are shut, there is a box think it says eas (black box) you can take the cover to see it pumping, u will hear it.
if not you and none of this whats mentioned is at fault u have to have it 1 plugged in or 2 reset. hope this helps u. 1 more suggestion, im not sure about a p36, is the button on the dash on, orange light on, this locks the suspension for lifting, when down wont go up.
get back to me how u got on, i will have another think. im sure the sensor on axle.

Air suspension inactive

you can try turning the ignition on and off , only to position two ond off with out starting , between 20 - 30 times this sometimes confuses modules and causes them to clear faults , if not i would recomend getting it plugged in , if vehicle is not in warranty go to landrover specialist , much cheaper!!!!!
