ELECTRONIC AIR SUSPENSION CONTROLS

WARNING

Make sure that the vehicle is clear of people and obstacles before adjusting the suspension. Failure to do so can potentially result in serious injury or death.

CAUTION

Make sure the Electric Parking Brake (EPB) is applied, and the brake pedal released, if the suspension height is adjusted while the vehicle is stationary. Failure to do so may potentially result in damage to the vehicle.

NOTES

The electronic air suspension does not operate if sufficient air reserves are not present in the air suspension system. In this event, run the electric motors to allow operation of the compressor. Run the electric motors until sufficient air reserves resume.

NOTES

Frequent successive air suspension adjustments may deplete the vehicle's air reserves. In this event, allow time for the electric motors to run so the compressor can replenish the air reserves.

NOTES

The electronic air suspension system may raise or lower the vehicle automatically. For example, if the vehicle is travelling at high speeds.

The electronic air suspension system adjusts the height of the suspension to raise or lower the vehicle.

The electronic air suspension system controls are located on the centre console.

Operate as follows:

  1. Up button: Press to raise the suspension height.

  2. Down button: Press to lower the suspension height.

  3. Off-road height indicator lamp: Illuminates when the suspension is set to off-road height.

  4. Normal height indicator lamp: Illuminates when the suspension is set to normal height.

  5. Access height indicator lamp: Illuminates when the suspension is set to access height.

    NOTES

    Access height is 40 mm lower than normal height.

The current suspension height adjustment is indicated via illumination of the LED indicator lamp on the relevant up or down button. The instrument panel also displays a confirmation message.

The electronic air suspension system may not operate without the electric motors running to operate the compressor and maintain sufficient air reserves.

The suspension system operates without the electric motors running, if:

  • A request to lower the suspension is made within a minute of the vehicle's electrical system being switched off.

  • A normal height request is made from the auto access height setting.

Operation of the suspension system remains available for a few seconds after the vehicle's electrical system is switched off and the driver's door is opened.

Suspension height adjustment stops, after a short time, if a door is opened, but resumes if the door is closed within 90 seconds. If the door is not closed within 90 seconds, the suspension remains at the height attained before the door was opened.

Touch and hold the relevant up or down button for a suspension height change with a door open. In this event, the suspension only lowers if there are sufficient air reserves to raise the vehicle back up.

NOTES

The electronic air suspension may not lower to its minimum setting while a door is open.

In the event that a door is open and the suspension cannot complete a height adjustment, the instrument panel displays a message.
