*airbags*?

To be fair, apart from the SLABS ECU, it's the only thing you haven't replaced, and it's usually where people start when they have SLS problems...

It sounds like you don't want/can't do the work yourself, so yes you will need it calibrating by someone with the right electronic equipment.

If it won't lift *at all*, I would think it probably ain't calibration.

But then again, I am not 100% sure.

To check if it's a "mamagement" or "executive" fault the first test you can do is to push the ORM switch.....if no warning sound and the passenger side is lifting normally then stops and the compressor stops too unfortunately I must say that U have an ECU or electronic connection problem, if the compressor is still working then the ECU does not receive the signal from the height sensor.....etc. Do that ORM thing and tell me what happenned.............or plug it into a testbook if you have one within reach to be sure........there are some other "unorthodox" methods to check out things but it goes with some struggle(e.g. to improvise a cable as to capture the signal from the faulty side's height sensor with the good side's connector, or to swap sensors, etc.....step by step to eliminate possibilities one after another) but is a too complicated to explain it here especially for a guy like me with a poor english

It'll almost certainly be the airbags, irrespective of what the garage is telling you - 99% of all air suspension problems are due to airbags and they are always the first things that should be replaced if there is an air suspension problem.


Paddock Spares sell them for 63.80+vat each.

spoke to the lad who came out today, both air bags were inflating to above normal ride height but computer was saying 1 side was 10mm higher than the other but it was opposite to what the vehicle was doing. replaced both rear levelling valves with landrover ones as the others fitted were britpart. lad thought this was the problem a faulty or poor sensor. now the vehicle sits higher on the n/s and lifts only partialy on the o/s as if the calibration is wrong again. does it need re calibrating again as more new level sensors have been fitted ??
