How do I re boot my range rover suspension. The mechanics lifted the vehicle on a hoist to do some maintenance and when they set it down they could not get it to lift. The vehicle remains flat with the suspension not working. A bunch of ammitures. Cheers Robbie

Hi, this is due to a couple of things. 1 is this a p36 or p38.
things like the door sensors will prevent this from lifting, its to stop it crushing your leg when foot is out.
more than likely there are 2 hieght correctors.
depends on the model. i see these where leg pops out, i get them in where a air bag has popped off, loosing all your air.
when its a p38 and lifted, if u dont push the button on the dash the computer gets confused and wont let it lift, this then needs a reset. i have lifted a lot of range rovers and the p38 is the worst, i use a 2 post lift, u got to push button on dash, this tells it its getting jacked up or lifted. i have forgot to push it a couple of times, a air bag drops off, u need tough thumbs to push it on.
listen to see if the compressor is running when running.
you must open bonnet start engine then shut door making sure all doors are shut, there is a box think it says eas (black box) you can take the cover to see it pumping, u will hear it.
if not you and none of this whats mentioned is at fault u have to have it 1 plugged in or 2 reset. hope this helps u. 1 more suggestion, im not sure about a p36, is the button on the dash on, orange light on, this locks the suspension for lifting, when down wont go up.
get back to me how u got on, i will have another think. im sure the sensor on axle.

check that you are not in 4 x 4 settings on hard surface as that loads up the transmission making it work harder

    Clunk from front of land rover discovery but only occassionally

    have the vehicle put on a 2 post hoist that allows the suspension to drop right down
    then carefully check the rubber insulators on the lower arms for splits or indications that the rubber is tearing from the metal bushes

    I bought a 2000 range rover already converted to coil springs and shocks, now I have an eas fault constantly on the dash, how do I get rid of the eas system in the computer?

    For many repair operations you don't want the suspension to be adjusting itself up and down while you work on the vehicle. Classic air sprung models have a disable switch under the seat, but this is lacking on the 4.0/4.6. On these models, the following options are available for disabling the system:
    1. Leaving a door or the tailgate open effectively freezes the suspension
    2. Unplug the air suspension delay timer, a small black box that looks like a large relay under the drivers seat.

    I have a 04 range rover that the front left air suspension wont lift. No fault light is on? Any ideas?

    It could be that the pipe from the air pump is defect it could also be that the air spring ( strut assembly ) is broken.

    Air suspension out (inactive ) code

    1. The automatic suspension system on a Land Rover must be placed in a service mode (High Lock) prior to raising the vehicle on a frame-contact hoist. This can only be accomplished by using a Land Rover Test Book Scan tool or an aftermarket equivalent.

    2. If the suspension is allowed to hang freely at maximum extension, the suspension controller will enter a fault lockout mode and disable the compressor and height sensors

    3. In addition, the suspension system will vent the suspension in an attempt to bring the vehicle to a correct ride height.

    4. Since the suspension is hanging free at maximum extension, all the air will be vented, causing the vehicle to sit at maximum low when taken off the frame-contact hoist. A Land Rover Test Book Scan Tool or an equivalent is required to reset the suspension once it has entered the lockout mode.

    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!!!!!
