    Had a mobile mechanic out during the week to change the cv joint on my 2003 vogue.

    When ive returned from work today (I work away) the back end is sitting high, whereas the front is sitting low and the passenger side (which was the side which was jacked up) is sitting on the bump stops!

    Now I need the car to get to and from work as the missus said this was the only week she would take me in, so need to get it sorted!

    Any ideas?

    Dan :)

    Have you actually taken the time first to introduce yourself in the correct section.

    Have you actually tried to start the car to see if it sorts it’s life out? They do most of the time.

    Welcome.

    Yes I have started the car, its going up and down slowly at the back when I try and raise/lower the suspension, but nothing on the front properly.

    I think it needs the level sensor resetting somehow?

    Have you run the engine with the door open for ten minutes, to ensure the air tank is full.....??

    Do you have any fault messages on the dash, lights on or off on the height selector switch ?? etc etc...

    They don't like have dangling legs....and if the mech didn't disconnect the height sensor link arm before the work, he could have damaged the sensor, but a fault should be shown for that and Air Susp. Disabled message on the daash.

    Nope, no error messages on the dash (had the air susp inactive the other week because the battery voltage was low).

    Havent tried with the door open for 10 mins yet. Ive no lights on the up/down switch and when I move the switch for raise or lower it flashes the corresponding indicator light, even if it doesn't do what its supposed to fully.

    You need to have patience and as saint said leave door open and go make a cup of tea
    They used to have a funny wheel off ground thing too and it can get all screwey.
    I had a recovery driver disconnect my battery before disconnecting the trailer once,so the arse End went up,it sorted it’s life out later.

    EAS system sounds weak maybe.

    Air suspension was fine the week before when I took it to a garage. They said it was all hunky dory :(

    OK, an update.

    Spent 30 mins outside with the door open and the engine running. Nothing, so I thought I would take it round the block and see if it reset itself. Nothing other than now I have the Air Susp Inactive error and no lights on the suspension control panel. not even the indicator light.

    Then I would say the next thing to do is plug it into diagnostics and see what the ECU thinks the fault is.

    It could be a weak compressor, leaking air bladder or a dud sensor - diagnostics first.

    How about contacting the mech and explaining the situation and that you would like him to sort it, as it worked before he got his mits on it, and now it doesn't work.

    If he is anywhere near knowledgeable on the L322 - he will have diagnostic gear to assist.

    This forum is becoming awash with self appointed monitors.

    The worst is the incessant garbage spouting newbies who write every last word that they actually think, on every subject.

    Boils my **ss.

    sounds like a dodgy height sensor on passenger side. it could be stuck. look to see if its still connected right. spray some wd40 on it. may work may not.
