SOURCE: 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!!!!!

SOURCE: hi.. i have a 2004

The EAS can have many different faults that will give the same warning. I have had several air susp problems. First try to disconnect the battery, wait several minutes reconnect then drive car making at least on full circle. If lights remain, air pump (under spare tire ) can be checked, also valve under a cover behind right front wheel, other than these areas, the Testbook diagnostic at dealer will determine if any other parts are source of problem. Unfortunately, with the complexity of the system many other parts Height sensors, etc, etc can also cause the error message. Good Luck.

Replacing the air bags is only cheaper if that is the only problem with the vehicle (which it hardly ever is). The air bags or other parts will act like a house of cards and over work your compressor and other components within the air ride system. Converting over to coil springs is definately the way to go.. eventhough I hardly ever recommend finding safety and suspension parts at a junk yard. Springs are easy to cut corners and costs on and a cheap spring can cause catastophic results. http://www.strutmasters.com offers affordable conversion kits and provides a lifetime warranty on all the kits they sell. The springs are only made of powder coated, American made steel coils that are designed to last the lifetime of the vehicle (unlike those airbags and compressor) http://www.strutmasters.com/lincoln-town-car-suspension-s/37.htm there is a direct link if it helps anybody having these problems. There are less expensive versions out there, but you get what you pay for.

SOURCE: my land rover is saying

Being a Land Rover tech for about 2 years now, a suspension fault light could mean a hundred different things. ONE of the most common is the compressor failure. But alot of time when the compressor fails it is due to a leak in the system. So make sure you check for leaks before you throw a 300 dollar compressor only to have it fail a month later.

SOURCE: Air suspension inactive, HDC inactive, ABS light on, Range Rover

Air Suspension Inactive usually means there is a problem with the Air Suspension. However, it will also come up when alternator or battery voltage is low, or when you reset (disconnect and then connect) the battery. To reset it manually: while in P(ark), turn steering wheel all the way left, hold few seconds, and then all the way right, hold few seconds. All the warning lights will go out. Most common failure is the passenger front air strut, since batteries are prone to leaking acid, it leaks right on top of the rubber airbag and burns through it. Dealer willcharge you one hour to diagnose, or you can easily diagnose this by looking at the ride height of each particular corner of the truck. If its sits low, or emits hissing sound when you park the truck, its leaking. If you keep driving with leaky air strut, you risk burning up the air compressor, as its working extra hard to compensate for the leak. Replacing the strut is easy 45min job even for a novice mechanic, and you can do it yourself. Strut can be found new for approx $750 online. If you are fed up with air suspension issues, there is a $700 kit that converts the truck to springs, and disables all of the air suspension. Look up Arnott Industires

    How to reset air suspension in a 2003 range rover


    This assumes the suspension has failed in some way. The cause could be a loose air line, a leaking air spring, the valve block, the compressor or the computer. Only a dealer or specialised LR shop can reset the computer, but you need to determine and fix the cause first

    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.

    Have had air suspension system completely replaced including computer all under warrenty . Now at 100,700 miles the air suspension inactive warning on dash has come back on . Level is in correct mode and...


    Check all the level sensors with a voltmeter as they fail sometimes. Did they replace the compressor? If you keep these cars and repair them on your own I highly recommend looking at purchasing the Bearmach Hawkeye diagnostic computer. It seems like a lot of money to buy but it can provide you with much needed info. They provide updates with better and better functionality.

    2004 Range Rover HSE with 78,000 making a humming sound when it goes over 45 MPH Air Suspension System Inactive is reading on the dash , do I need a new compressor?


    Humming sound is from the front plastic cowling on the outside of the car, at bottom of windshield, This plastic cover warps over time causing the sound. A little silicone adhesive to tack trim down will alleviate the noise.
    2. Air suspension inactive light can illuminate for multiple reasons, To avoid unecessary expense the car should be scanned with a land rover scanner (dealer or aftermarket (expensive) unit)). The compressors do go out, Compressor is the domed shape unit under the spare tire.

    Air Suspension


    I feel your pain as I am a loyal Land Rover customer and have had a bad one in the past. Your car has many demons. Air suspension compressors do fail but there are many other parts in the system. The tire sensors are not essential.

    Range rover problem air bag suspension


    I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at our conversion kits. these convert you from the airbag to a powder coated American made steel coil spring that is guaranteed to last the life of the car. Airbags and compressors are constantly having to be replaced. Also something alot of people don't know is that theses air suspensions are not meant to be in temperatures above 90 Degrees or below 40 Degrees. That is most of the world. The temperature will cause you to replace alot of bags. and typically when your replacing a bag you are going to have to replace the compressor to because the bag had a hole or small crack in it causing the compressor to over work and it will die. I posted the link below so you can take a look

    Suspension


    Instead of replacing your failed air suspension parts I recommend converting to the passive coil spring system. This is a permanent fix to the problems caused by the air ride suspension. Check out Strutmasters website for the kit that will fit your Range Rover: http://www.strutmasters.com/Range-Rover-Air-Suspension-Spring-Conversion-Kit-p/-rr-03-4.htm. I hope this helps!
