hi, this system is self leveling and needs to be driven to readjust , it will need to see the level sensors changing to adjust.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
drove vehicle with the system on for 5 miles and drove it 5 miles with it off. havent turned system back on but no change.
Expert:  Ricardo Hohl replied 6 years ago.
ok, lest do a battery disconnect to reset the computer, disconnect the negative side wait 1 minute and reconnect see if it will level then.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
already did that before i took it for a drive. it was disconnected for 5 minutes do i need to do it again?
Expert:  Ricardo Hohl replied 6 years ago.
yes try it again?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
the battery in disconnected and the air suspension is off, do i need to turn it back on before i connect the battery or after?
Expert:  Ricardo Hohl replied 6 years ago.
yes you need to leave the switch on while you disconnect and reconnect the battery.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
while driving it earlyer the ck suspension light came on turned off to go inside .came back out no light but on the drive home came back on .i didnt have any problems until i raised front end to work on endlink bushings and now all these problems .if i leave switch on before and after battery disconnect and reconnect and still wont lower what is my next option.
Expert:  Ricardo Hohl replied 6 years ago.
ok, it seems like no mater what we do it wont reset and this can be because the level module has gone on limp and this is cause by a sensor failure on the system , you need to have the level control scan and access the codes that are stored this will help to diagnose the problem , you say the light when on while driving this means there must be a code stored that will help to diagnose the problem ,you need to have a repair shop access the level control module with a scanner and get the codes stored on memory because anything else will not work.
