Question about 1997 Land Rover Range Rover

Rangerover td6 air suspension.

Hi, my 2002 rangerover td6 does not like to be jacked off the ground. Every time the wheels are lifted of the ground it will return to the bump stops and I have to take it to the dealer to have it reset, once the fault/error has been cleared it will return to normal position.One dealer says it needs a compressor, the other said i was just unlucky and that the key should be removed whenever jacking the vehicle. I have tried this but to no avail, a trip to get it reset again.The compressor will work on all modes and is quiet when operating. I think it might be the hieght sensors, what do you think?

You could be right or the ride height valves not resetting when back on the ground
if resetting brings it back to ride height , it will not be a compressor problem but a control problem

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: rear suspension has jack up and won't lower on

Possibly the height sensors or valve block at fault. Or a compressor failure. May need to be put on the diagnostics machine to check.

Hi!!
Hill Descent Control Information
The lamp illuminates when the driver selects Hill Descent Control (HDC), to inform the driver that the system is enabled. If the lamp flashes, the system cannot enable HDC due to excessive speed or incorrect gear selection.
HDC Activity Status: The signal informs the instrument pack if the HDC function is enabled or disabled. If the HDC function is disabled, the HDC lamp will flash to indicate that the incorrect gear is selected or the vehicle is travelling at excessive speed for HDC operation. The signal is originated from the ABS ECU.

Hill Descent Control Fault The lamp illuminates if a fault is detected within the HDC system, providing the driver with a visible warning.
HDC Fault Status: The signal is a combination of the HDC activity and fault messages and is only illuminated when the ABS system detects a HDC function fault. The signal is originated from the ABS ECU.
Check your brake fluid and brake pads. This will also trigger the HDC light. If Brakes and fluid are OK, have the PCM codes scanned, this way you'll know exactly where the problem is. You can have the codes scanned for FREE at AutoZone, Checkers or similar auto parts, they will give you a print out with the fault codes numbers and their description.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Is a suspension spring compressing tool needed to change lower control arm/ball joint front


usually when the spring is above and over the upper control arm you jack the center of the car up until the wheel clears the ground.
At that point the lower ball joint can be removed. Hope this helps.

Warning suspension workshop message appears in center display ride heigth cannot be reached. . passenger front suspension does'nt lift.


Hi!

Your vehicle is equiped with a small compressor that pumps air into either a bag or shock absorber, each one has a leveling mechanism that sends the signal to pump more air to that particular side. This keeps your vehicle leveled at all times, like when you have passangers in the back sit, passenger sit, or luggage.

The message you are getting means that either the air is not getting to the front passenger suspension to level it up, which could be due to an air leak, or the bag or the part of the suspension that lifts that part of the vehicle is defective.

You can get a diagnostic at any reputable suspension shop at no charge to find out the exact cause.

Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

Hi, i lift my lincoln mark viii '94 to change the breaks. and when a removed the jack lifter the suspension came down (back and front). what happenned??? what can i do? thanks.


If you failed to shut off the air suspension switch (located in the trunk) you may have blown an air line when you jacked the car up. All Lincolns equipped with air suspension should have it shut off whenever jacking up the car. You can try to turn the switch off and back on to see if the air springs refill but if not, trace the air lines from the compressor to both the front and rear to check for a blown line. If you don't detect a blown line, you may have damaged the air springs.

2002 rangerover vogue petrol nearside front suspension goes down overnight any ideas to put right please


I expect this has an air system within the suspension allowing you to vary the ride and its height. If the suspension is dropping overnight this would be from a leak within the system or a valve that is allowing air to bleed back and leak out. You'll have to locate the leak which may be in one of the shocks/air bags. Being these are tied together by a common system if one were to leak the pressure in the system will equalize causing the entire system to lower its pressure. I hope this may have assisted,

The function that rsiaes and lowers the vehicle doesn't work,


Lifting

The following instructions must be carried out before raising the vehicle off the ground.

  • Use a solid level ground surface.
  • Apply hand brake.
  • Select 'P' on automatic gearbox selector.
Note: If the propeller shafts are to be removed, reference must be made to the relevant operation. To avoid damage occurring to the under body components of the vehicle the following jacking procedures must be adhered to.

DO NOT POSITION JACKS OR AXLE STANDS UNDER THE FOLLOWING COMPONENTS:
  • Body structure other than approved jacking points
  • Bumpers
  • Fuel lines
  • Fuel tank
  • Brake lines
  • Front or rear suspension arms
  • Transfer box
  • Steering linkage
  • Front or rear differential units
  • Engine sump
  • Automatic gearbox
NOTE: For certain repair operations, it may be necessary to support the engine under the sump. In this case, a block of hardwood or a rubber block should be positioned on the jack lifting cup to protect sump. Vehicle jack
The jack provided with the vehicle is only intended for use in an emergency, for changing a tyre. DO NOT use the jack for any other purpose. Refer to Owner's Handbook for vehicle jack location points and procedure. Never work under a vehicle supported solely by the vehicle jack.

Hydraulic jack
A hydraulic jack with a minimum 1500 kg, (3,300 lbs) load capacity must be used.

WARNING: Do not commence work on the underside of the vehicle until suitable axle stands have been placed in their correct position. Always chock the wheels when jacking. The handbrake may be ineffective when the wheels are off the ground. Raising and supporting the vehicle
To assist in raising the vehicle, jacking points are provided as shown in the following illustrations.

Raising the front of the vehicle
Apply handbrake, select 'P' on automatic gearbox selector and chock rear wheels.
Axle stand positions - front

Raise vehicle to enable axle stands to be positioned under, either, the front sub-frame, or the recommended customer jacking points.

CAUTION: Place a piece of hardwood or a rubber block between each axle stand and the jacking point to avoid damaging the body / component. If the propeller shafts are to be removed, select NEUTRAL in the main gearbox.
Carefully lower jack until vehicle sits securely on axle stands.

WARNING: Always support the vehicle on axle stands when using a jack.
Before commencing work on underside of vehicle re-check security of vehicle on stands.

Reverse procedure when removing vehicle from stands.

Raising the rear of the vehicle
Select 'P' on automatic gearbox selector and chock front wheels.

WARNING: Always chock the front wheels when jacking the rear of the vehicle.

Axle stand positions - rear

Raise rear of vehicle to enable axle stands to be positioned under the rear sub-frame. Alternatively, the axle stands may be positioned under, either, the recommended customer jacking points or the front mounting points of the rear sub-frame.

CAUTION: Place a piece of hardwood or a rubber block between each axle stand and the jacking point to avoid damaging the body / component. If any damage occurs to the washers on the front mounting points of the rear sub-frame, then the washers must be replaced. Carefully lower jack until vehicle sits securely on axle stands.

WARNING: Always support the vehicle on axle stands when using a jack. Before commencing work on underside of vehicle re-check security of vehicle on stands.

Reverse procedure when removing vehicle from stands.

Wheel-free lift
The following warning must be read before attempting to lift the vehicle.

WARNING: The vehicle cannot be supported safely in a wheel-free condition using the wheel-free facility of a four post ramp, and under no circumstances must this method be employedA wheel free condition may only be achieved on a four post ramp by raising each end of the vehicle and positioning axle stands beneath the recommended customer jacking points.

CAUTION: Place a piece of hardwood or a rubber block between each axle stand and the jacking point to avoid damaging any components. If the propeller shafts are to be removed, select NEUTRAL in the main gearbox. WARNING: The front and rear suspension lower arms must NOT be used as lifting / jacking points. Alternatively, support the vehicle on an approved two post lift with the arms of the lift beneath the recommended customer jacking points.

CAUTION: Place a piece of hardwood or a rubber block between the lifting equipment and the jacking points to avoid damaging any components. If the propeller shafts are to be removed, select NEUTRAL in the main gearbox.
