SOURCE: 92 mitsubishi galant suspension warning light

From the expensive lesson that I had to learn about my 92 Galant I would imagine that with the mileage on the car, if the suspension has not been serviced, you might have tiny cracks and pinhole leaks on the inside fold of the airbag from dryrot or wet rot. These cracks are hidden and very hard to diagnose with the "soapy water test" unless the air bag is fully inflated. Once these cracks start, the air bags become very hard to keep inflated which may overwork your compressor. (compare it to yourself trying to blow up a balloon with holes on it.. you may try for a while, but eventually you will give out) The air ride systems are PLAGUED with problems and expensive to repair between dryers, compressors, air bags, solenoids. ALSO, I learned that air bags are not designed to withstand temperatures below 40 degrees or above 94 degrees.. outside of those temperatures, their vulnerability to weakenbecomes MUCH greater.

When I bought my Galant, I didn't realize that the previous owner had probably noticed some suspension issues coming down the pipe line at him and sold it off quickly at an AMAZING price. Turns out that around 60-80K miles is the average life span for many air bags and compressors in the suspensions out there. (I didn't know this when I bought the car) I had to have the compressor replaced at the recommendation of my mechanic, only to have the new one go out again shortly after because they didn't know that it was actually the air bags that were killing the compressor. I didn't have enough money after JUST buying the car to keep taking it to the shop. A friend of mine converted his Ford to a passive coil spring system with Strutmasters.com - He doesn't drive a Galant. He drives an Expedition, so I suspected that they probably would not have the kit for my 1992 Galant. I was surprised to find that they did have a kit for the car

http://www.strutmasters.com/mitsubishi-galant-suspension-s/152.htm

I was also surprised to find out that I could convert ALL FOUR wheels for less than $600 (which coincidentally is about how much I spent on the repairs that didn't help before I considered the conversion kits) Anyways, that is my ten cents for what it is worth. I am very happy with the conversion kit. Even though I have had other problems with the car since then, the suspension has not been one of them. I hope this helps!!

SOURCE: 96 lincoln town car-air suspension fuse

A couple of things you can do. Find a salvage yard that carries FORD/Lincoln products. You may able to get a fuse cover from them. Also, you can, although time consuming, take out each fuse and do a visual inspection of it. When you find the blown one, it should be obvious to see. Another option (my choice), get a fuse tester from an auto parts store (some times, they come in a Fuse Kit with new fuse's) Get one that has adjustable tip width? Meaning, you can slide a button on the tester and move the electrode tips closer or farther apart to work on different size fuse's. On the top of every fuse is open contact points so a tester can be used. Touch the tester to each fuse in the box until the tester 'lights ups' indicating this is the blown fuse. (tester will not light up on a good fuse) replace the fuse with one EXACTLY the same size/rating. This should do it. Note; if the fuse blows again, this means, most likely, that the air compressor needs to be replaced.

    I'm not 100% sure on Jags, but on a domestic vehicle you have to clear the code with a scan tool. You should be able to call any Jaguar service center and get a quick answer.

    What are the warning signs, if any, when the leveler (rear air suspension) is about to go out?


    If a slow air leak has developed in either an air bag or in any of the tubing (there's a lot) or in the valve at the air pump, you will hear the air pump running more often.

    Eventually, the pump will be unable to raise the car to the required height (working against the leak) within the time-out period (about a minute) and then it will give up, stop pumping, and a light on the dash will come on indicating an air suspension problem (or maybe on your relatively newer car, the digital dash may show an error message - I don't know).

    I've had an '88, a '91, and a '94. Both the '91 and the '94 had air suspension faults at various times, and none of them were air bag leaks. I've had the valve at the pump stick and/or/leak on both cars, and the tubing spring a leak on one as well. Apparently the air bags are pretty well made and don't fail as often as the other components (in my experience).

    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.

    Air suspension light came on I turned the car off light went off, then I noticed the rear end of my car was low. What could that be?


    It is your air ride suspension. It could be the air bags, the sensors, compressor, wires and many other things. What I did was bought an after market coil spring suspension and converted it from the air ride suspension. The air ride is lovely but costly. It is hard to diagnose that air ride suspension without spending a lot more money then you want. I suggest getting an after market converter kit, but I would make sure it has the sensor plug so that your warning light on your dash goes out....otherwise it will be on forever!

    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

    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!!!!!
