Would a faulty height sensor cause the "check ride

Hi Joseph, I believe a faulty air pump would cause the warning the illuminate and not a faulty sensor. Regards John

2007 rav 4 v8 4wd light stays on and seems that 4 wheel drive is staying engaged

Make sure that all four tires are exactly the same height, (not necessarily the same name brand) using a yard stick or what ever means possible, to measure the height and make sure all four tires have the same air pressure. ( using the same tire gage on all four tires). And then go from there.

What does the "leveling" light in the dash mean in my 2000 cadillac catera. why is it on and how do i fix it. put new rear shocks in it and now it stays on all the time.

What the leveling system is is basically a height sensor for the rear height, air shocks, an air compressor and air lines. What happens is the height sensor knows what is considered a normal ride height. When people or items are added at the rear seat or trunk the vehicle sits lower. The air compressor will turn on and attempt to pump up the air shocks to raise the height to normal again so the rear end doesn't bottom out.

What can happen is the compressor fails to turn on due to a blown fuse, faulty compressor or defective height sensor. If the compressor turns on the shocks might not be able to pump up due to a line leak or air shock leak.

If you are able to look at the lines or shocks you might find a problem. Otherwise going to your mechanic and have him/her inspect the system to see what the problem might be and then deside if you want to fix it or have them do the repair. Because the light turns on periodically and goes out I would suspect a leak somewhere.

'AFS off' light on dash what does it mean and how do

Hi there,

This is a possible sensor malfunction - related to Suspension Height circuit.

Whenever a warning light of this nature is displayed, your vehicle's onboard diagnostic OBDII will have store the appropriate Trouble Codes.

Your local Lexus Dealership will be able to connect their handheld scanner to your vehicle's computer, which will then tell them where the problem lies (this would take less than 30mins to diagnose - marvellous machines they are!)

Lexus will then direct you on the appropriate action.

'Height Hi' light flashing after pneumatic suspension removed

I would disconnect the compressor before pulling fuses. The fuse may be operating other things of value (body control module) You may always have that light on unless u take it to a specialist.

Headlight level warning

check your height sensor on your suspension. theres 4 sensors that look at ride height for the headlights to adjust when going up and down hills. you may have bent one when working on the car.

ASAP QUESTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The light can come on for a number of reasons. One of which is that the pump is getting worn out. It will run too long trying to maintain the height/pressure setting and overheat which lights up the light. I believe that the light will be lit if it is unable to raise the car to the desired manual height setting for the suspension. These all lead back to the common issues... air bags with small leaks and then a worn out suspension pump.
