I'm pretty sure there is 4 sensors one one each corner. I'll do some research and get back to you.

Air supension stays too high


There could be a couple of problems, first and easiest is the rear height sensor became disconnected from its mount. This is common because the sponsor clips on by a kinda weak spring and can be easily disconnected.also where the sensor mounts is a small round metal ball that screws onto frame and rear suspension, the balls after time wear to the point that the sensor spring cannot hold on.there's also an adjustment on the lower mount, if you move it up the vehicle will lower....then you could have a concern with the air compressor vent not allowing it to vent down to ride height. Or the vent solenoid on top of each bag stuck also not allowing it to vent..to ck it yourself, go for a short ride around the block and when you come back park on a level surface, shut off car, exit and close door....listen for an auditable click in the rear, and front left corner of car and watch the distance between rite and wheel lip, see if it drops. If it does I would be leaning towards the simple adjustment...also check thr front ride height on level surface, if you have a suspension problem on 1side of the car and it sits lower,it will throw off rear ride height. ...

Why does my 97 tahoe leans to the left side


Frame could be twisted from a previous wreck, the rubber isolators for the cab shell to frame could be dry rotting or in an area rusting out. Was it ever crashed- anti sway bar might reveal a twist)? Core support might be twisted. Other suspension components may be dry rotting or worn. Front tires may also be two different sizes overall.

New springs replaced pairs would be a better solution than spacers if evertything tracks back to spring height issues. You may also have some cracked leaves in the rear springs as well.

Have you checked the ride height and made those adjustments yet?

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

My 1991 4x4 nissan pickup leans to one side the front passenger side it has new shocks what could be the problem


Shock don't have any thing to do with ride height. It should be a coil or leaf spring, or on some vehicles, a torsion bar, that keeps it level.

EXPEDITION REAR AIR RIDE PROBLEM


do you have just rear air suspension? here's rear only. 4 wheel different. Deler an run a diagnostic test with WDS machine and get fault codes.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The air suspension system is designed to improve ride, handling and general vehicle performance for static, on-road and off-road driving conditions:
  • Ride is improved by using an air type spring (the soft ride is inherent).
  • Handling is improved by maintaining constant vehicle attitude.
The system consists of unique rear air springs, the air compressor, air lines, air spring solenoids, height sensor, air suspension control module, attachments and associated signals derived from both driver and road inputs. With these components and signals, the air suspension control module commands changes in vehicle height that are necessary for the load leveling features.
The load leveling feature rear air suspension (RAS) systems shall automatically make adjustments in vehicle height so that the vehicle is always at trim height and constant front-to-rear vehicle attitudes are maintained over the expected load range of the vehicle. Adjustments in height that are necessary to correct height differences between the vehicle's left and right sides for the RAS system shall be restricted to what can be reliably achieved with one air suspension height sensor.
The system uses one air suspension height sensor, a steering sensor, generic electronic module (GEM) and other vehicle sensors to measure driver and road inputs. The system changes vehicle height using an air compressor, two air lines and the use of air springs with air spring solenoids.
The air suspension system holds vehicle height when the rear hatch or any door is opened. The system stores rear vehicle height the moment any open door is detected. The system then maintains this height regardless of the addition or removal of a load. The system will return to its commanded height when all doors are closed or the vehicle speed exceeds 16 km/h (10 mph).
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Air Suspension Height Sensor
One air suspension height sensor is mounted on the vehicle. The air suspension height sensor sends a voltage signal to the air suspension control module. The output ranges from approximately 4.75 volts at minimum height (when the vehicle is low or in full jounce), to 0.25 volts at maximum height (when the vehicle is high or in full rebound). The air suspension height sensor has a useable range of 80 mm (3.2 in) compared to total suspension travel of 200-250 mm (8 to 10 in) at the wheel. Therefore, the air suspension height sensor is mounted to the suspension at a point where full rear suspension travel at the wheel is relative to 80 mm (3.2 in) of travel at the air suspension height sensor. The air suspension height sensor is attached between the No. 5 frame crossmember (upper socket) and the panhard rod (lower socket).
When the air suspension height sensor indicates that the rear of the vehicle is lower than trim under normal driving conditions, the air compressor will turn on and pump compressed air to the air springs. When the sensor indicates that the rear of the vehicle is raised above trim under normal driving conditions, this will cause the air to be vented from the air springs to lower the vehicle back to its trim height level

Air Ride Sensors Corroded?


you buy a car with all these electronics. ride hieght sensors for each wheel. this is affecting that. then when you go to the dealership you want them to replace only the exact one piece that fails. that could take hours of diagnosis time. at damn near 100 per hour. go ahead and give them the car. let them do diag. total price 2000. or you have narrowed it down to brains or sensor. do it yourself 1000. problem solved it should cost 1000-2000 to fix. if u find parts cheaper. money in your pocket

Yes it could be. The ride height sensor could be faulty. Try to add some weight to that side to see if it compensates, if it doesn't more than likely it's bad.
