Question about 2005 Land Rover LR3
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.

There is probably a fault with the suspension compressor as this is the most common fault with this display message.You need to have the faults read at adealer and they can reset this or recommend a solution.

Compressors dont die.. they are killed. Typically it is leaks somewhere else within the air system that overwork the compressor until it cant take anymore. Picture trying to blow up a balloon full of tiny little holes. You could keep up for a little while but ultimately will fail. 99% of the time if you replace the compressor and not the airbags, solenoid, dryer etc... you are asking for more headaches in the very near future. Have you considered converting to a passive coil spring assembly? http://www.strutmasters.com has conversion kits available that are DESIGNED to last the lifetime of the vehicle. They come with a lifetime warranty and provide a better quality over their competitors because they use powder coated (for protection.. otherwise steel is highly corrodable and UNDER your vehicle exposed to the elements) American steel (not chinese) and they never reheat or reshape old springs to fit what they need. Every kit is custom made to fit perfectly. http://www.strutmasters.com/land-rover-suspension-parts-s/21.htm There is the link. I hope that helps!

Everybody is right. This is a very common problem. Typically it is tiny cracks and leaks on the inside fold of the air bag due to dry or wet rot that overworks your compressor. Imagine trying to blow up a balloon that is full of tiny holes. Eventually you would give out of breath. Same thing happens to your compressor, it eventually just can't give anymore. Have you considered a conversion kit at all? www.Strutmasters.com offers a conversion kit that is passive, with much simpler components that are designed to last the lifetime of your vehicle.
