Reset air suspension

Hi recently i damaged the front left suspension.after being quoted for the job i gave permision to do the job. when i went to pick the car up the dash warning lights came on. when i ask about this issue i was then told i needed to go to the toyota dealer to get the computer reset. so i now need to address the lights issue after i paid the money,which was not cheap to do,$1200. this sticks in my throat as i feel i was conned into thinking they would handle the repairs or at least tell me they could not do the whole job. anyway i need to know if there is a way to reset the instruments without involving a dealer. thanks in advance trevor

SOURCE: AIR SUSPENSION PROBLEMS FOR 2000 LINCOLN TOWNCAR CARTIER

I have serviced these in the past and it will probably be a combination of things. I just a few weeks ago fixed a 1999 with the same problems. Generally from past repairs, the electric pump has been working overtime to compensate for leaking rear air shocks. The best solution is to replace them both, not a cheap repair, the pump around 275.00 and each shock arount 275.00.
Just with every thing over time things fail, the rear shocks develop leaks over time/weather cracks, they are easy to check, soapy water will identify this as the problem. If you can get under it enough to spray around the bottom of the shocks when they are inflated. These systems are computer controlled and if you have the proper scanner you can check the system out for eletrical problems easily. My past experiences with these suspensions as almost always the shocks and pump.

SOURCE: warning light on dash says headlamps not leveling

There is an issue with the height control sensor on the Prius product. Is it still under warranty? If not, go back to the dealer and tell them that you want scheduled to see the District Service and Parts Operations Manager. When you meet with him/her, explain the situation, and the costs involved. He/she has the ability to grant "goodwill" assistance, and possibly help you out on the repair, with Toyota participating in some of the costs.
Can't hurt to try. More often than not, the DSPOMs are very flexible, and like to promote customer satisfaction.

SOURCE: need to replace the left front wheel bearing on my wife's car

Too bad I am not at work I could call on a price for a bearing. To be honest that is not too bad of a price on a bearing installed. Most Jag parts need to be purchased from Jag. A typical price for a sealed hub bearing unit is about $140 retail for a chevy corsica(just did 2 on one on monday) to about $300-400 on a ford super duty. and that is not including labor. You need air tools, a torque wrench and lock tight thread locker for this job. And something to remove any corrosion from mounting surfaces
1. jack up car,take wheel off.
2. remove brake caliper
3.remove rotor
4.remove whats holding bearing on. Either one big nut on outside or three to four bolts that hold it to the knukle.
this is how most cars are now,if its rear wheel drive its a peice of cake ,fwd is a little more difficult.

SOURCE: Replacment of a dash light. Toyota Corolla 1998

There is a plastic garnish surrounding the instrument cluster held in by 2 philips head screws. remove the screws and gently pry the garnish from top first then sides then it should pull out.

Then remove the 3 screws holding the cluster in place (2 bottom 1 top). Once that is done gently flip the cluster bottom up and pull out some to expose the wiring harness. Remove the 3 connectors from the back and then the cluster will pull out.

There are 3 bulbs that control the overall lighting of the cluster. They are spaced about every third across the rear of the cluster. They are the larger Green knobs. Remove the 3 large green knobs and replace the bulbs with the appropriate size. You can call your local parts store to find out the size.

Its a 5 minute job and does not require the entire removal of the dash board.

SOURCE: need to know how to reset the abs warning light, repairs have been made

The ABS light will stay on only when a problem exists. Once repairs have been completed and no problems exist the ABS light will go off on it's own. Take the car back to where you had the work done and have them fix it. It shouldn't cost you anything. If the ABS light was not "on" when you took the car to them, DO NOT let them charge you to fix it. They caused the problem. They can fix it. Good luck. Hope this is helpful.

Have you tried removing the Ride Control fuse (RTD - real time damping) so the system has to go through factory initialization again on power-up?

If this doesn't reset the system - it detects a condition on its sensors which causes it to trip and display "Service Ride control"

Have a 2000 eddie bauer and the entire rear end is sitting low with the front remaining the same, this seems to be happening often, whats the solution


do you hear the pump running from under the back of the car? check fuses? is the suspension light on in the dash? this system is diagnosable with the right tester.have someone get the fault code from the suspension module. could be as easy as a sensor. was the car towed recently? flat beds ofter knock off the sensors when car gets tied down. my air suspension went out on me. And the dealers price was too expensive and i went to Strutmasters.com and bought a conversion kit that eliminated the air and has a lifetime warranty so now i don't have to worry about it ever again. Prior to jacking or lifting a vehicle with air suspension, you must turn off the suspension switch. find the reset switch auto parts store will tell you where its at

I have a 2004 range rover and i noticed while i was driving that my right front end was leaning lower than my left front side and a message came on saying that the air suspension is inactive. Help what is...


Hi,
Probably the ride height sensor has failed or come unplugged, Crawl under the right side and check it is still connected, if so undo the arm connecting it to the lower suspension arm. Now get someone to start the car whilst you manually move the sensor arm up and down. If nothing happens to the ride height the sensor is gone,or the wiring is damaged or something, and will need to be replaced

Front air suspension stopped working on my 2004 lincoln navigator. i replace the relay still doent work. Is there someway to reset the system


Vehicle Dynamic Suspension The four wheel air suspension system is comprised of the following components:
  • service switch
  • control module
  • two front height sensors
  • one rear height sensor
  • compressor and drier assembly (includes vent solenoid)
  • air lines
  • front and rear air spring and shock absorber assemblies
  • four air spring solenoids
-----------------------------------------------------------
Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
  • Restricted suspension movement
  • Excessive vehicle load
  • Cut, severed, crimped air line(s)
  • Unmounted height sensor(s)
  • Damaged front air spring(s)
  • Damaged rear air spring(s)
  • Battery junction box (BJB) fuses 20 (30A), fuse 27 (5A), and fuse 111 (50A)
  • Loose, corroded, or disconnected connectors
  • Air suspension service switch is in the OFF position
  • Damaged solenoid valve(s)

  1. If the inspection reveals an obvious concern that can be readily repaired, correct the concern before continuing with Inspection and Verification.
  1. If the concern remains after the inspection, use the scan tool connected to the data link connector (DLC) to retrieve continuous diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and to execute On-Demand Self-Test diagnostics for the 4WAS module.
    • If the On-Demand Self-Test is passed and no DTCs are retrieved, GO to Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.
    • If DTCs are retrieved, go to the 4WAS Module Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index in this section.
    • If the 4WAS module cannot be accessed by the scan tool, Go To Pinpoint Test A .

The rear suspension is down on my 1999 Ford Expedition - Eddie Bauer. The cause: while out in the woods I came across a small dip which cause my back left wheel to lift off the ground. The suspension...


I had a 1999 Expedition. When you put the 4x4 on it raises the vehicle an extra inch or 2.
It may help to turn the 4x4 off. Two wheel drive is a lower air setting.
Your original pump may still be good. The problem can be in the front. The compressor is not filling the front suspension to the cutoff point. It will lift the rear after the front end is at running height. Since you lost the front end first, the remaining air bled out there and then the rear came down. Once you shut down the car the suspension was done, all the air was let go.
There are adjustment solenoids on the body but you need someone qualified to repair this.

Front suspension noises, bad new struts?


It sounds like the mechanic may have left the upper strut nut a bit loose, you may want to ask him to check it, but be nice, Toyota had some problems with upper strut mounts. These are on the top of the strut, they hold them to the body of the car. Unfortunately you have to remove and disassemble the struts to replace them. You could try asking your mechanic to just replace the one side and try it. I'm pretty sure that's your problem and he may give you a break since he's done all the other work. There is also a bulletin on a rattle from the side view mirror, but I think since this just started with the strut job, the mount is your most likely cause.
