SOURCE: the ABS and air-bag light are permanently on and a warning light

kenchyke, the shop may have disabled the air bag system to work on the car, and possibly forgot to activate it again. While this seems a bit odd to me that they could overlook this but, since it started after the work was done, you need to return it to the shop asap to have them check it out. Although the car runs fine, the abs system and the air bags won't operate, which could result in injury if you are in an accident (air bag will not deploy, abs probably disconnected).

Gear light in Drive started to blink while was driving


This light is warning you that a fault has been detected in the electronically controlled transmission by the Transmission control module. You must get the system scanned for the fault code that was set in the modules memory when the light was turned on.

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.

Hi, i recently replaced both sides of the front suspension upper control arms for my 2006 VW Touareg 3.2 V6 which has air suspension. After collecting it from the repair shop and driving for about 10 mins,...


I would return to the repair shop and get them to plug into the OBD and check for fault codes that correspond to suspension, chances are this could be related to previous repair. But may just need the fault codes deleting

Air Suspension system Problem 1990 Lincoln Towncar


Unplugging the Connector will cause the Check Suspension light to come on as its listed as a fault as it cant run.

But with it unplugged the compressor shouldnt been able to start. If you want to kill the compressor pull its relay from the engine bay. located above the battery.

But i'd suggest correcting the fault as if those bags do pop your going to end up being grounded. as the rear will drop a fair bit!

Warning light on the dashboard


As far as the red light goes. You simply have a brake light bulb out.

The clicking is normal. Its the shift lock solenoid. When you press on the brake it lets you shift into gear.

On rare occasions warning light on dash indicates gearbox problem


I just can't see the gear box itself being bad if all is still in working order. I'd be checking the sensor that's sending this message.
