If there is a leak in the system or a weak air compressor the suspension will lower while driving. A warning will then be displayed to slow down. Then if you raise it to the off road height by accident the warning of slow down or vehicle will lower will be displayed. Has the LR3 started sinking over night or taking a long time to raise first thing in the morning? Colin
No it does not sink over night but only when driving
where would such leak occur, is it in the air lines (hose)
the rear suspension always go up first and it takes a while for the front suspension to go up
The air springs on these tend to fail around 100K miles. The system logic is for the rear to rise first.
what would be the possible solution for this?
If taken to a shop they could read the fault codes stored and give you a better idea if it is a leak or a failing pump. Both are just as likely depending on the mileage of the truck.
it has 71k mileage on it
I would be leaning more towards a failing pump. It is not terribly difficult to do but the faults need to be cleared.
Do you have a shop you trust that you could have scan the module for fault codes?
